A Funny Site of the Day with your Guide Mike Durrett

Peter Marshall: In Hawaiian, does it take more than three words to say "I love you"?
Vincent Price: No, you can say it with a pineapple and a twenty.

Premiering in 1966, television's latest incarnation of Tic-Tac-Toe employed the biggest stars and wits (available) to liven up the otherwise mundane proceedings. The fun came in the traditional Q & A segments where celebrity queries were always phrased as comic straight lines -- and the stars welcomed the bait, hurling adlibs and putdowns at every target imaginable.

Peter Marshall:  If you find someone lying unconscious in the street, should you do anything?
George Gobel:  I'd probably crawl around him, I guess.

This extensive homage site, presented by Dixon Hayes, zeroes in on the Peter Marshall-hosted era, which crossed 15 years in daytime and nighttime versions, enhancing the stardom of its regular panelists as it welcomed home viewers to the daily parties. Here are several areas of interest, some quite extensive in joking material:

• Quotations pages, featuring Paul Lynde, Wally Cox, Charley Weaver, Rose Marie, George Gobel, other regulars and guests, plus politically incorrect moments
• Square Sounds -- lots of rare comedy audio files
• Square Sights -- screen captures, press stills, and memorabilia
• Square Facts -- program trivia
• Articles

Peter Marshall:  According to Billy Graham, is immorality contagious?
Paul Lynde:  I know he was down with it for about a month.
