|Double Dare: The Inside Scoop|
|Directed by||John Wilson|
|Written by||Bob Anderson|
|Distributed by||Kids Klassics|
|Running time||45 minutes|
The Inside Scoop, a 1988 release under the "Kids Klassics" brand, explained the conception of Double Dare and featured clips from its early years. Included are Summers' host audition, and clips of the original pilot with Geoffrey Darby as host and a very basic set.
The video also includes unused footage from the very first episode taped of the series (it was taped on 18 September 1986, and aired shortly after the series premiered). Four takes were needed on the first item of the Obstacle Course, titled "Nightmare"; while the object was simple — finding the flag hidden within a giant pillow — the flag itself was not in the pillow at all for the first two takes. For the third take, not only did the clock not start, but one of the show's cameramen accidentally fell, blocking the contestants' progress. The fourth take is the one seen in the episode as aired.
There are some naming conflicts with this video. Printed material refer to this as "The Inside Scoop", though Marc and Harvey refer to it as "The Inside Slop," which is also seen in the ending credits.
