    I LOVED this show, HBO only made 12 half hour episodes of it I believe, but they ALWAYS re-ran them, and cut them up in 10 minute segments, etc.

    They released them all on VHS back in the day but they are obviously out of Print, I'd love to get my hands on some copies though.

    I used to rent Braingames (the compilation VHS) from the local library all the time. And believe it or not, it actually helped me on a recent Math Exam in college Pre-Cal (okay, okay, it was a bonus question):

    The test? Probability

    The question? If you have a drawer with blue socks, red socks and greens socks, how many socks must you pull from this drawer to guarantee you have a matching pair?

    The answer? Four. The answer fits for any problem like this. It's always one number higher than your choices.

    Babar the Elephant was part of this lineup. Tin-Tin, too, but there might have been a few years seperating them.

    Anyone who has the VHS tapes, would you trade me for a dub of them? I can't find them anywhere. Email or PM me.

    I LOVED Brain Games...I was shocked to see a posting on this board about it... i never knew it was so popular.

    I used to rent it from the library ...i must have seen the same tape like 10 times. I think i even have audio of it...i was one of those kids who played with a tape recorder all the time, and i do have some of Braingames on a tape somewhere.

    I remember Tales from Wrongovia. Also, one with a band called the "Pickles" i think...and you had to memorize everything in the scene and then they'd ask you certain details of what was going on.

    And i recall the logo was like an egg-head dude.

    Brain Games Rocked SO did Fraggle Rock...
    It's OK, next time I'll make you listen. I wish that it were in the power of all children to say that to their parents and to know that indeed they would be heard as we were in those wonderful days on Waltons Mountain.Narrator The Waltons (From the Runawa

    Did you buy these? If so I'd love to convert them to DVD and share them with everyone. Or I'd trade for them, I've got tons of stuff to trade.
    Let me know.

    Thanks,
    Jay

    Brain games was cool even though I could never figure them out.
    The customer is always right.... except when they are wrong.

    Holy cow!

    I totally forgot about this show. I remember how it seemed a little creepy to me, but then again we didnt have HBO, so I only really saw it during the free preview weekends.

    YouTube, at best, only has this ad for the show:

    There are times when I could only be sad at the fact my cable company never gave us HBO back in the day, so I missed out on whatever neat things they had on that channel before the 90's.

    Still, on YouTube, I can at least get a taste of that past...
