Here’s your first look at the Frogger game show coming to Peacock
Frogger, the 1981 arcade game where you safely guide a frog across busy highways and treacherous rivers, is now a game show on Peacock. This is right; instead of being a little frog, they will be leaping across logs!
First impressions of the show reveal some bizarre and whimsical set-pieces as well as contestants fighting for their lives on these set pieces—all the fun and games you need to have an American Ninja Warrior or Wipeout-esque experience.
Although this isn’t Frogger’s first television appearance, it was an adaptation of the character in CBS’ Saturday Supercadecartoon. This is not the first time Frogger made a splash on NBC. This classic scene is from Seinfeld‘s 9th season, 1998.
The original video game was created by Konami and published by Sega. The latest version of Frogger, which has been around for 40 years, is the Apple Arcade version of Frogger In Toy Town.
Frogger, the reality game show, hits Peacock on September 9, with new episodes on Thursdays.
