Brains and Brawn (game show)

    (NBC Primetime, 1958)

    [This was a short-lived game show which had an ambitious
     format: two contestants -- one playing the "brawn" portion
     and a celebrity contestant playing the "brain" portion
     comprised a team which competed with another team to win
     prizes; as if that wasn't complicated enough, there were
     also two hosts -- Fred Davis hosted the "Brain" portion,
     and Jack Lescoulie hosted the "Brawn" portion; perhaps its
     complexity was part of the reason this series went away
     fast after just three months]

Theme: "Brains and Brawn Theme"
