TV Series
    (September 11, 1993-September 1995)
    Hosted by Kirk Fogg Announcer/'Olmec'-Dee Baker
    Aired on Nickelodeon
    Premise: Six teams of two kids compete in a series of elimination rounds, the winning team getting the chance to run through a temple in order to retrieve an 'artifact' based on the day's legend, narrated by the granite idol, 'Olmec'
    A place allowing kids to run through and bribe the guards with trinkets isn't really the best place to store historical artifacts.
    The 'temple guards' are obviously actors in Mayan garb, yet the contestants seemed really scared by them.
    One contestant got so scared by a temple guard that he literally ran out of the temple.
    A production error in one episode (one door in the temple was left unlocked) enabled a player to win in under two minutes.
    Many players were too slow, or got stuck in a certain room, or failed to exit the easiest way.
    Kirk Fogg was a lousy host, and Olmec ended up with most of his duties. Basically, Kirk got upstaged by a talking rock (who displayed more personality)!
    Olmec used a lot of cheesy puns like, 'Let's rock!' or 'Let's get cracking!' or 'This rock is ready to roll!'
    Although no merchandise was released from the show, there are at least two websites that sell T-shirts based on those worn by contestants.
    It required mental and physical ability, and players had to be skilled in order to win.
    The legends used for the shows came from a wide variety of cultures, pertaining to history as well as myth.
    It is well remembered by hipsters who grew up in the nineties.
