Legends Of The Hidden Temple [Saturday Flashback]


Was anyone else a Green Monkey? I was always a Green Monkey. Legends of the Hidden Temple was a flawless exercise of athletic, teen game shows, which no longer seem to exist? Remember Nickelodeon Guts? Remember Wild and Crazy Kids? Legends of the Hidden Temple was my favorite. It was slightly spooky, there was a giant talking head and creepy obstacle courses where kids would get snatched up by weird Island people. There were even cool folk legends and  historical story lines to follow that dictated the theme of the episode. The best part, however, was the prizes. I wanted to go to Space Camp so bad. They always made it look so cool. I wanted to be in a gravity suspended room-thingie! You could even win $50 savings bonds from Chef Boyardee, microscopes and Schwinn bikes.

Thank heavens there are full episodes on youtube.
