Found a something interesting on Ebay,  a check from Bob Barker Productions Inc. 


 


Was Bob pitching shows back in the day to networks?

The link keeps redirecting to the topic. Fix it.
Still crazy after all these years...but that's okay.

Bob got at least one game show on the air locally, \"Lucky Pair\" in the early 1970s. It also occurs to me that it may have been Bob\'s corporate identity for the touring \"Fun and Games Show\" that he did during the \'70s and \'80s.


 


Another possibility is that it\'s just a \"dummy company\" that Bob used as a tax shelter.

In doing some digging in Broadcasting magazine, Bob Barker Productions was indeed the shingle he used to produce \"Lucky Pair.\" In the 12/23/68 issue there\'s mention of KNXT adding a second game from Barker called \"Educated Guess,\" while a 1969 article mentions \"The Bob Barker Show\" and \"The News Game\" being in development. There\'s also mention of an attempt to syndicate \"Lucky Pair\" nationally in 1971.

No need to be sorry. This is good information and why this board is here. Thanks for those.
