The History Of Video Games On TV

"Silver Spoons" Has Arcade Games On The Set

Year: 1982

The plot of the Silver Spoons sitcom revolved around a single father who designed toys. Among his prized possessions in his home were a number of arcade games including Pac Man, Gorf, Manhole, Swamp Wars and Tempest. A running joke in the series was that when ever someone played Swamp Wars, they would eventually get eaten by a mutant frog and you'd hear a loud burb afterwards.
