This show dates back to the days of radio when it was called 'The Candid Microphone'. It made it's way to television in 1948 and continued well into the 1970's.

Host Alan Funt passed away in 1999, however, his son Peter had taken over the later days series. There have been different versions throughout the years, including a 2014 revamp with Peter Funt and Big Bang Theory actress, Mayim Bialik.

The classic series is a true gem and my Throwback Thursday memory - The original Candid Camera with Alan Funt.

Check out the early episodes, including the classic theme song introduction below.
