Kind of surprised that nobody in this band (unless I'm mistaken?) ever appeared as a celebrity guest/panelist on a TV game show.

Some BBs-related folk, like Little Richard, appeared on game shows such as Family Feud (Grammy All-Stars edition):

This got me thinking about which BBs member(s) would do well as a game show panelist, and on what show(s)?

I really, realllly wish The Boys had appeared on Family Feud. A Wilsons vs. Loves edition.

In the early 80s, probably circa 1981 or 82 (possibly during Carl's absence), Mike, Bruce, and Al were all in one square on "Hollywood Squares." There used to be a clip on YouTube I think, but I can't find any video or pics online at the moment. I recall it being awkward having all three of them crammed into one square (to say nothing of how *awful* that show always was).

Still can't find any pics or video, but it would appear the sort-of "original" version of the show ran from 1966 to 1981, so I'd guess either 1980 or 1981 for the "Beach Boys" appearance on "Hollywood Squares."

Really like Family Feud! Big fan of survey-type questions. Here they copied the game but gave different name - "100 to 1". Seen it since 8! Esp. entertaining when the winning team's 2 people answer questions within 20 seconds. Such fun!
Would be cool to see BBs play in it against, say, "Full House" cast.

Ah, makes sense. I figured it had to be late '78 at the earliest given that Bruce was there. And again, as I mentioned in a subsequent post, the show ended in 1981 (for that particular run), so there was a pretty narrow window for when it could have occurred given their look (Mike and Al bearded, etc.).

Now I'm trying to remember whether this was ever up on YouTube, or if I'm just remembering having this buried away somewhere on a VHS. My recollection is that whatever I've seen, it was just one or a few BB segments and not even the entire episode.

I try to imagine them on Wheel of Fortune. The hosts probably would go crazy. Mike instead of answering would constantly be explaining how he came up with certain words with Bruce applauding wildly, Brian would always yell answers during someone else's term,  Dennis would hit on the girl that turns the letters around and Al would just be waiting on a bu.... I mean waiting 'til he is allowed to turn the wheel, while Carl would stand besides just rolling his eyes. Complete chaos. Special appearance by Murry running around the audience showing each member his glass eye.

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

I have it on VHS somewhere. I got it as part of a collection of miscellaneous BBs videos in the early '80s, but I'd known about it since shortly after it aired, thanks to the ASM fanzine. They answered two questions...incorrectly, IIRC. I know one of them was age-related (something like "If a person is considered 'old' at 65, at what point are they considered 'really old', to which Mike replied "'72?'"...it wasn't exactly that, but close).

So cool. Hope it can be transferred sometime!

I wonder if the Bruce Johnston Dating Game clip still exists anywhere. I know game shows were routinely taped over back then by the networks to save tape costs.  But sometimes stuff like that turns up at The Museum of TV & Radio (a.k.a. Paley Center for Media), so who knows...

This clip perfectly illustrates why the show was so dumb, the premise dumb, and why the show's format was extra non-conducive to having people on who weren't used to doing comedy bits and/or gameshow bits and thinking on their feet:

I wonder if any of the Boys would've done well in a time-pressured type of clock countdown environment, like say as a celeb guest on the $25,000 Pyramid. They should've done that show, especially seeing as they namechecked Dick Clark in a song lyric. Mike was the self-professed "wordsmith", would this skillset have aided him on any game show?
