Figure It Out is an American children's game show hosted by Summer Sanders that aired on Nickelodeon for four seasons from July 7, 1997 to December 12, 1999.Kids with special skills or unique achievements competed as contestants on the show while a panel of four Nick celebrities tried to guess the predetermined phrase that described the contestant's talent.
Shortly after the series aired its last first-run episode, Figure It Out began airing repeats on Nickelodeon Games and Sports for Kids until the network ceased at the end of 2007. The series was recorded at Nickelodeon Studios at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida.
Each episode had two sets of three one-minute rounds, in which the panel took turns asking yes-or-no questions to try and guess the contestant's talent. Each time a panelist mentioned a word that was part of the phrase that described the secret talent, the word was turned over on Billy the Answer Head, a game board that displayed a puzzle (the solution being the contestant's secret).
All panelists for the show were celebrities. Either three or all four panelists were taken from Nickelodeon shows airing at the time. Regulars included All That cast members Amanda Bynes, Lori Beth Denberg, and Danny Tamberelli, who also had starred in Nickelodeon's The Adventures of Pete & Pete. At one point, Cat, Dog and Cousin Skeeter were panelists. Even Coolio, who sang the Kenan & Kel theme song and appeared in its opening sequence, was a panelist.
List of panelists Edit
- For a brief period in Season 1, the show experimented with pouring chocolate syrup on the panelists instead of the usual green slime.
