"Weirdmageddon Part 1" uses an opening sequence replacing every single main character with Bill and his friends.In this apocalyptic version, Dipper is the only character normally in the opening screen that still appears: he's seen as a human skeleton wearing the blue and white pine hat that appears instead of the normal horned monster skeleton, even if only as a resemblance.The program was originally broadcast in black-and-white, but when a prime-time version began in October 1966, both it and the daytime version were broadcast in color; the daytime version thus became the first ABC daytime series to be broadcast in color on a regular basis.Typically, a bachelorette would question three bachelors, who were hidden from her view; at the end of the questioning period, she would choose one to go out with on a date paid for by the show.The program was revived three additional times in syndication afterwards.
The same question could be asked to multiple bachelors. The bachelorette would make her choice based solely on the answers to her questions.
Jim Lange hosted The Dating Game for its entire ABC network run and the 19 syndicated editions.
The 1986 revival was hosted by Elaine Joyce for its first season and Jeff Mac Gregor for its remaining two seasons.
The main theme is often fan-dubbed as "You Made Me Realize," due to its strong similarities to the real "You Made Me Realize" song Breeck wrote for MTV's Awkward.
"Made Me Realize" is commonly mistaken for the extended version of the Gravity Falls theme song.
As the bachelorette could not see the contestants, she based her date choice entirely on their answers.
