Goodson/Todman Game Show hosted by Joe Garagiola, sponsored entirely by Holiday Inn and most remembered as being the precursor to the Bert Convy-hosted Tattletales.

The format was a bit different to its successor, in that four celebrity couples played for pre-selected couples in the audience and were given 100 points at the outset (although later episodes removed this starting point). One half of each team would be asked the questions, with Garagiola talking to their partner through an onstage speaker phone.

Much like early episodes of Tattletales, Garagiola read a statement and each contestant had to raise his/her hand and give a story plus a one- or two-word "summary". The answers were then read over the phone, with the offstage partner ringing in if they thought their partner had said it; a correct identification and subsequent explanation earned 25 points, while a wrong answer deducted 10 points from that couple and the one which actually gave the answer.

After four questions like this (two men, two women), a final question was played with only two of the couples. The team with the most points after this won the grand prize of $250 and a full week's stay at any Holiday Inn.
