ALEX NOTE: ...Uh, yeah, so I don't get any complaints: This TV show is pretty much "AU"; it contains a boatload of anachronisms, not to mention it's somewhat dependent on TWoN for some of its plot points. A healthy dose of the "MST3K Mantra" is advised.

Super Smash Stadium is a game show made by St. Clair Publications, based on the Super Smash Bros. franchise. Debuting on September 4, 1972, it was originally produced by a Martinsville-based company known as Suburban Sprawl Entertainment; however, "The Pubs" entered the picture starting with the show's sixth season in 1977. SSE, more well-known for its adult entertainment, made the show out of a desire to produce more family-friendly content and break into the TV business, but thirty years later, with this show being its only TV product still on the air, SSE decided to sell its rights, and since the 36th seasons, St. Clair Publications has been the sole producer (also, The Pubs had unofficially been sole producers since about December 1992 anyway; SSE started getting lazy around that point).

On September 4, 2022, its 50th birthday, the show came full circle with a game of its own.

Gameplay

The game is played in six main-game rounds, in which a contestant faces off against one to three "experts" (generally friends of the producers). The game is played solely for cash (although cars and trips have been seen on some rare occasions); exactly how much cash the contestant wins is determined beforehand by bets the "experts" took from the audience. If the contestant loses, they get a consolation prize.

Each round plays out like a typical game of Super Smash Bros.; the rounds are generally Stock matches with 2-4 lives and a time limit of 10 minutes. However, two rounds per episode are Unlimited Smashes with no time limit and five lives; these matches usually have the highest stakes. Also, lower time limits and/or 1-stock matches may be used if a previous match took too long. On uncommon occasions, there will be Time and Coin matches.

After every third round, the previous three contestants play Target Blast; whoever gets the most points here advances to the Metal Smash.

The Metal Smash is the final round. As the name implies, both fighters are metal, and there are no items. The match is either always on Battlefield, or on "Battlefield forms" of a fighter's "home stage". The winner here is dubbed the episode's winner, while the loser plays the Credits Minigame for some extra consolation cash.

This show does not use returning champions; however, since November 2007, a previous contestant can come back if it's been 10 years or longer since their last appearance.

Reception

To be completed later

While the show has been nominated for a Daytime Emmy several times, it always loses. The losses have become something of a running gag on the show; for example, on the Season 47 premiere, Alex would claim that SSS was "the show the Daytime Emmys don't want you to watch" and "that show that constantly loses in the Daytime Emmys to sappy telenovela reruns on Telemundo! ¡Mas no bueno!"
