“To tell the truth” with MAD founder William M. Gaines


Here’s the chance to see the founder of the MAD Magazine William M. Gaines in one of the most famous TV shows.

The show challenged a panel of four celebrities to correctly identify a described contestant who typically had an unusual occupation or experience. This central character was joined by two imposters who pretended to be that central character. The celebrity panelists questioned the team of challengers, with the imposters allowed to lie, but the central character sworn “to tell the truth”.

Interesting: The former German MAD Magazine editor Herbert Feuerstein was a long-time member of the quiz team in “Was bin ich?”, the German version of “To tell the truth”.
