Double Dare at Comic-Con

Children of the late ’80s and early ’90s are undoubtedly familiar with the Nickelodeon family game show Double Dare. Airing from 1986 to 1993, the show followed two-member teams of kids answering trivia questions and competing in messy physical challenges, culminating in the famous obstacle course at the very end.
