| The original Richard Dawson run of "Family Feud" was some of the best times I had watching TV as a child
I've watched several episodes of the original Richard Dawson run of "Family Feud" on YouTube lately, not to mention the entire one-hour episode of Richard's return in 1994 and the opening and closing of his absolute final one that same season. Among the eps from the original run I saw: the unaired pilot, the first broadcast one (in both of which he makes a crack about drilling Jack Lord's hair), his final from the original ABC run (where he thanks the crew and ABC in the beginning and-in a segment not seen publicly until 1999-acknowledges exec producer Howard Felsher on the show), the one where he met his future wife Gretchen Johnson (too bad the second part on YT-where she was called to the board-was blanked on audio), three segments of Fast Money where the first contestant managed to give answers that were mostly No. 1 on the survey rendering the second contestant moot (on the Dawson's return ep, he recounted with a returning family how one member was stuck in the booth for so long that when that family went for dinner, she was still stuck there for about 48 more minutes! She said she forgave him on that show.), one of the winners of that segment that reached 200 points on her own was a member of the Trejo family and when she did another of those on a subsequent show she contributed to one of the funniest moments in game show history. The question Richard asked for this one was "What is the month in which a pregnant woman shows?" Her reply was "September" resulting in the host's laughter for several seconds before composing himself to ask the rest of the questions though he loses it when recounting those answers and then again when the second contestant has to give her replies especially when it comes to "Name a noisy bird" and she says "cukoo"! I watched this show quite frequently as a child during summer and always got a kick out of it though I have to admit at first I was creeped out seeing Richard kissing all the female contestants on the show. In fact, it's interesting to see that it didn't start out that way and when he returned, he mentioned he promised his daughter with Gretchen-of which he showed a cute picture of-that he'd stop doing that. Having said all that, I definitely think Richard Dawson was the best host of "Family Feud" and seeing all those eps makes me think of how I miss him to this day...Update: 9/20/13-I finally saw all the eps with Gretchen Johnson and with full audio intact. No wonder Richard married her!
