Synopsis

Two teams, each composed of two members, compete. One member of each team is placed in the punishment pit. A question is read to two celebrity guests. One player (flip of coin decision) chooses the guest he feels has the correct response.

If the celebrity gives the correct response, the player wins a cheap prize (valued under $16) and his opponent's teammate is punished (doused with water or hit with harmless foods). If the player chooses the wrong celebrity, his teammate is punished. After three rounds, the highest-scoring team is asked to predict what numbered hole Oscar the Wonder Rodent (a white rat) will enter when placed on a board of numbered holes. The teams wins prizes in accordance with whatever hole Oscar enters.
