Mr. and Mrs.

Network: CTV Television Network

Broadcast Run: 1966 to 1967

Broadcast Medium: Television

Self-styled “Quizz King” Roy Ward Dickson was the creator and host of this half-hour game show, which proved to be a forerunner of The Newly-Wed Game. Couples were asked questions about each other, and the winners were those who knew most about each other’s tastes and preferences. This made for some amusing and sometimes embarrassing revelations – though at the time the series aired, there were none of the heavy innuendos which characterized later television games of this nature.

Mr. and Mrs. was produced in the studios of CFTO-TV Toronto, and occupied the 10:30 – 11:00am time period, Monday through Friday, for just one season, 1966-67.
