Two teams representing their schools took part and played some very silly gunge-filled games while balloons and streamers went everywhere, making this an early version of Double Dare and Fun House. The hosts also took part in some fast-moving and rather zany comedy sketches as a wide variety of characters.

The most memorable part of the show was a segment called "Teach Them A Lesson", where two teachers had gunge thrown over them by the contestants for approximately one minute for no particular reason.

The winning team would receive the coveted star prize of a wellington boot.
