Why, back in my day, they had a thing called gameshows!
Nickelodean had some primo gameshows in its days, though clearly, not all took place on a sound stage with fancy lighting, music, scoreboards, or even obstacles. 'Wild & Crazy Kids' was probably as fun as it was to watch as it was actually participating. It was real 'reality TV' because kids were allowed to be themselves and just have fun competing in some gnarly events.

The show, for the most part (outside of those who were guests hosts or hosted strictly for the pilot), had three charismatic hosts: Don Jefcoat, Annette Chavez, and my favorite, Omar Gooding. Then, they'd get about twenty or thirty kids who would all wear those fluorescent colored 'Wild & Crazy Kids' that represented their team colors, and they'd all just go nuts in the numerous competitions that they came up with. I don't remember many of them, except a relay race involving skateboarding in a mall. Sometimes they'd have celebrity guests like Luke Edwards or Jonathan Taylor Thomas.

This show had all the cool things young kids could do if Don, Annette, and Omar hosted an after school program. Best of all, it was a lot of fun because none of the people (especially the competing kids) were phonies! They were just regular kids having fun. It was a cheap show for Nickelodeon to produce, and a rather short-lived one at that.
