I can,t believe operation isn,t already on the list..remember ...take out wrenched ankle..and there was a plastic wrench you had to remove from the mans ankle with a pair of tweasers without touching the edge or you will hear an electric zap If I think back enough I think I could go on and on about old 70,s toys...I think operation was from the early 70,s please correct me if i,m mistaken.

Much better when connected to the mains electricity. My sister was taken to hospital after losing at a game of this.

I find this is a funny game to play when you have adults who have had a few drinks, way too funny!

There's a Spongebob version of this. I played it at a shindig last October. 2 of my little cousins shared the same birthday (That day, 1 was 1, and 1 was 8) and I played it. It was FUN!!!!

Milton Bradley's Operation game goes back to 1964, and was first introduced on ABC-TV's Saturday morning kids game show "Shenanigans," hosted by comedian Stubby Kaye (on 9/24/64). The game show was played on a life-size game board, with an Operation component within. Milton Bradley and Peter Paul candies were the only sponsors. Surgical probes were battery powered. A smaller version of the game still available today. Original 1964 cost was $7, gradually went up over the years.

Found a YouTube video of "Shenanigans" (the ultimate in 30-minute commercial) in which Stubby Kaye has a boy contestant play Operation...not the board game, but on a life-size dummy with the features of the home game. This aired on 10/2/65 over ABC. 39 episodes were filmed in all (26, season one; 13, season two). "Shenanigans" always trailed the rival networks' cartoon shows in the 10e/9c time slot. ABC replaced "Shenanigans" with reruns of the "Porky Pig" cartoon show in January, 1966. Time Bomb was another feature game on the show, a favorite of Kaye, and Kenny Williams, the announcer. Milton Bradley ruled back then.
