The odds were Round 1 were 1-1; Round 2 was 2-1; Round 3 was 5-1 and Round 4 was 10-1. The final round was always The Art Corner. Artwork was presented and the contestants were to guess the name of the painting.

The show was produced by Blair Murdoch and his production company (Blair Murdoch Productions, Inc) as well as Four Star Productions, Golden West Productions and NorthStar Productions.
