Really Rottens[edit]

I vaguely remember one episode in which the Really Rotten team actually won first place. Am I misremembering this? --Modemac 16:03, 7 Feb 2005 (UTC)

I think they DID win once, because of some technicality where the other two team members lost all their points. --b. Touch 17:20, 7 Feb 2005 (UTC)
The Rottens won the Morroco/Washington DC episode

They won in two episodes - Morocco/Washington, DC and New York/Turkey. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.30.199.133 (talk) 23:20, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Updated Laff-a-Lympics?[edit]

If Laff-a-Lympics was updated today, which Cartoon Network/Boomerang characters would be in the teams?

1985-86[edit]

Should it not be mentioned that reruns of the program were shown during the 1985-86 television season? That's how I got to watch it. -Amit

Oh, I see now. -Amit

Yes, Amit, Laff-A-Lympics was in fact re-ran on ABC from March 1 to September 6, 1986. WikiPro1981X (talk) 20:40, 9 December 2009 (UTC)

DVD Name Change[edit]

It should be noted WB as of late last year on their shop have renamed "Spooky Games" into "Laff-a-lympics: The Complete First Collection", which while not definitive is a good suggestion that this set served as their relaunch of the series to DVD with a second to probably follow. At the very least however this page should add the info on the name change. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.171.176.33 (talk) 01:18, 5 March 2014 (UTC)
