Host, Art Linkletter plays a guessing game with the audience. A random contestant picked from the studio audience has to guess the age of a woman in the audience.
Art claims to have a lie detector. It’s a gadget that is operated by a double crossing audience member who sets up a friend. A couple who are about to be married are about to be grilled with embarrassing questions. It’s all to see how funny people can be, and to teach a lesson that couples about to be married should tell the truth to each other. Old flames, debts, and more. For being good sports, Art presents some nice prizes.
Art recaps a stunt from the last show. A couple of college students tell about their trip to the leaning tower of Pesa. What were they supposed to do? Just reenact a science experiment of Galileo, but dropping things from the tower is illegal. These days, i don’t think they even let people climb to the top of it anymore.
Puppy love is the theme for the last part of the show, and a young junior high school boy is put on the spot. We get to be witness to the boy asking a girl out on a date for the first time. I get the feeling that his experience will be sabotaged by the show. He is challenged to make the date with 90 seconds on the clock. Cute, and despite the tense moments the young couple are awarded some nice prizes.
