Bobby Van hosted a trio of game shows during the 1970s: ''Showoffs,'' ''The Fun Factory'' and ''Make Me Laugh.''

Larry Blyden hosted the pilot of ''Showoffs,'' but after he died in an accident in Morocco, Van came in on short notice to replace him.

YouTube has a 1975 episode of ''Showoffs,'' with Dr. Joyce Brothers, Mike Farrell, Karen Morrow and Dick Gautier (the original Conrad Birdie).

It looks like ''The Fun Factory'' is the only game show of the three that features Van singing, so maybe this'll refresh your memory ...
