NOTE: 
There was a discrepancy whether a contestant said the word "PAPER" while trying for the big prize. Through audio procedures it was said that she did say  the work "PAPER,"  and was awarded $15,000.

Dick Clark, Vikki Lawrence, Rick Hurst

This quiz show was re-titled The $20,000 Pyramid from The $10,000 Pyramid beginning on January 19th, 1976 and was hosted by Dick Clark. 

Host: Dick Clark.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          
#9781: $20,000 PYRAMID
1976-04-08, ABC, 30 min.
Dick Clark, Bob Clayton, Vikki Lawrence, Rick Hurst, Lenore Lucy, Bob Palmary, Larry Banner, Ruth Pickholtz

This quiz show daytime version hosted by Dick Clark was re-titled The $20,000 Pyramid from The $10,000 Pyramid which aired from March 26, 1973 - March 29, 1974 (CBS - 242 episodes), and from May 6, 1974 - January 16, 1976 (ABC - 431 episodes).

Beginning on January 19, 1976, the series doubled its top prize and was retitled The $20,000 Pyramid. From October 1 to November 9, 1979, the series briefly became Junior Partner Pyramid, which scrapped the usual celebrity-contestant pairings in favor of children playing the game with a parent or other adult relative. Its last episode aired June 27, 1980, with Family Feud subsequently moving up a half-hour to take over the 12:00 noon (EST) slot formerly occupied by The $20,000 Pyramid. 

"Pyramid" received sixteen nominations for Emmys for "Outstanding Game Show" and won the award nine times.

Host: Dick Clark, Announcer: Bob Clayton. 

NOTE: The broadcast on April 8, 1976 is iconic and is of historical importance. On this program contestant Ruth Pickholtz, a young recently graduated attorney, appears in the second portion of the show playing four rounds with partner Rick Hurst ("Things Associated with Law," "Things People Pull Out," "Things People Join," and "Describe Things that Begin with the Letter K." Ruth Pickholtz wins $10,000. There is great celebration. 
However, when returning from a commercial break Dick Clark had the following caveat to say:

DICK CLARK: "Ruth, I've had some miserable jobs in my life and this is not the most pleasant. We have just gone through the exhilaration of your quote, "winning 10,0000 dollars." Human beings are entitled to mistakes. We made a bad one. We have given away 3 million dollars on this show, so a $10,000 gift really means nothing. We cannot in all consciousness give you that because as you will recall in the category "Things That Have Brands," Rick Hurst said something about names of products (Mouton Rothschild) which is really a description and it equals a brand. I just went through a lengthy meeting with our standards, people who have been watching over us all these years. We don't want the money. We cannot give it to you because of people who have gone bye before you and who will follow. We would like you to name a charity and we'll send them the $10,000 and give you another opportunity."    

RUTH PICKHOLTZ: "That's fine. I would like to give it to The National Association of Retarded Children."   

DICK CLARK: "You're a good lady. We'll see you first thing tomorrow."

Ruth Pickholtz returned the following day (broadcast, Friday April 9, 1976), and this time she won $10,000 to keep. 

NOTE: In January 2022 Ruth Pickholtz contacted Archival Television Audio, Inc. In a conversation with founder and owner of ATA, Phil Gries, Ruth stated how for many years she had been attempting to obtain/locate this show, but to no avail (very few "Pyramid" broadcasts survive in any form, video, audio, transcript, thru mid 1978). 

Finally, after appearing on this broadcast on April 8, 1976, she will be able to listen to herself for the first time in 46 years.
