The 10th Day of August

Candid Camera First Appearance 1948

Candid Camera makes its television debut after being on radio for a year as Candid Microphone.

Candid Camera was a popular and long running American hidden camera reality television series of film shorts. The creator Allen Funt’s concept came to television on August 10, 1948, and continued into the 1970s. Aside from occasional specials in the 1980s and 1990s, the show was off air until making a comeback on CBS in 1996, before moving to PAX TV in 2001.

The show involved concealed cameras filming ordinary people being confronted with unusual situations, sometimes involving trick props. When the joke was revealed, victims were told the show’s catchphrase, “Smile, you’re on Candid Camera.”

Extra Note: The catchphrase became a song with music and lyrics by Sid Ramin.
