"It's like Match Game with puppets...which as I say it sounds idiotic, but we think it's funny."
Larry Miller, trying to explain the show to Don Imus.

GSN Game Show where two contestants had to determine which of four Muppets was telling a lie about something in a specific category. The show ran for a mere eight episodes in Summer 2010.


Game Show Tropes in use:

  • Bonus Round: Correctly guess eight true/false statements in two separate but comedically-overlapping categories in 43 seconds for $10,000 (or so, as the show tinkered with the amount each episode, going as high as $25,000).
  • Personnel:

This show provides examples of:

  • The Alcoholic: Both the panelists and host reveled in this. They often talked about going out for drinks, and the panel (plus the contestants) had drinks sitting before them.
  • Bottle Fairy: Cashmere Ramada.
  • Camp Gay: William A. Mummy.
  • Precious Puppies: Cashmere Ramada...or at least until she starts talking.
  • Muppets
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: The panelists were thin parodies of existing celebs, but tended to revel in it rather than hide it.
    • Shelly Oceans --> Joan Rivers.
    • William A. Mummy --> Paul Lynde.
    • Cashmere Ramada --> Paris Hilton.
    • Sebastian Simian --> Simon Cowell.
  • Puppet Show: Uh-huh.
  • Songs in the Key of Panic: The contest music from the Bonus Round. It sped up as you went along.
  • Special Guest: On the third and fifth episodes, an actual celebrity in puppet form filled-in for one of the regulars. The fill-ins were Mickey Rourke and Rosie O'Donnell for Simian and Oceans, respectively.
  • Weasel Mascot: Weasel.
  • Upperclass Twit: Cashmere Ramada.
