Marshall Hollywood Squares on Hulu has just added another classic show, the syndicated version of Hollywood Squares with Peter Marshall! The short-lived 1968 nighttime show is there as well.

I’ll admit this is not my favorite version of the show; I prefer Tom Bergeron’s. But the Marshall era had a really nice array of stars, like Isabel Sanford, Redd Foxx, Elizabeth Montgomery, Eva Gabor, Suzanne Pleshette, Ed Asner… I could go on and on. And of course, who could forget Paul Lynde! It makes me wish all the more that we could see it on GSN sometime again.

And if you’re like me, you’ll probably really enjoy the fact that there are no annoying pop-ups on the bottom of the screen, no time compression, and the credits (and the NBC logo where appropriate) are left completely intact and split screen free!
