The most leeringly outre of the Chuck Barris-produced game shows of the late '60s, and with a leeringly outre host to match. The Bill Cullens and Bob Barkers tried to make contestants feel at home.

You wouldn't want to buy a used car from this guy, but for the show TV Guide once dubbed "the worst piece of sleaze in television today," he made whoopee.
