Game Time: Jep! (1998)

Bob Bergen is known today as the voice of Porky Pig, most recently on The Looney Tunes Show. In 1998, Bergen was given an opportunity to step in front of the cameras as host of Jep!, a grade school version of Jeopardy! which aired on Game Show Network (GSN) for 2 seasons.

Unfortunately, Sony has chosen to deposit this in the vaults, opting not to even consider reruns to mark the 15th anniversary of the series. Luckily, we were able to find a full episode to present for your edification. This came a year after Sony sold a juvenile clone of Wheel of Fortune, Wheel 2000, to CBS, but it bombed. Meanwhile, Rock & Roll Jeopardy!, which we previously reviewed, aired on VH1 around this time.

Following is a sample clip:
