In one, we were supposed to hit a dartboard with a bean bag mice catapult, and whoever hit it the most won. My record: 0. In the other, we had to use a winch/crane thing to pick up paper mache "moon rocks" off a stand, carry them across the floor, and dropped them in a bucket. I wound up grabbing the entire stand and was dragging it across a concrete soundstage floor. Oh, it was bad. Despite what it said when the show aired, I won $100, an electronic spell checker, the ugliest square bookbag you've ever seen, and...I think that might've been it. This was before my growth spurt, and I was so short that my head barely poked out over the podium. If you're ever watching old episodes and see a scrawny little kid go on about how awesome X-Men comics are, that's me.
This is an awesome story! I faithfully watched Double Dare back in the day... so I was hoping that was your show

I wanted desperately to be on Double Dare, but they weren't filming that day, and I think it was Family Double Dare at the time anyway. (It was just me and my dad that day.)

I did a search for "Make the Grade Adam" and I found 3 different episodes that had a kid named Adam, and I watched each until I found one where a short kid talked about x-men comics....lol

I also owned and enjoyed an Atari Lynx at one point, and sold it years ago on eBay (it had a decent resell value at the time). I have no regrets having owned both Atari systems (although it has been many years since I have owned a console system).
