Occasionally, students share drawings inspired by the show. Here is one of a girl getting covered in slime! If you would like to submit a photo of your drawing to be published here, you can ask a parent to help you send one. Be sure to do your very best . . . a lot of people might see it!
This is a favorite video of mine, compiled from clips from the 27 shows we did at Odessa’s Permian Basin Fair in 2009. 25 people get pies in the face, to the tune of Grieg’sIn the Hall of the Mountain King. If you would like to see the full videos, you can find them on YuckTV!
There’s no question that people getting pies in the face is a highlight of the show. The video above is a compilation of clips from a series of shows we did at the Kemah Boardwalk. For more slime and cream pie videos, you can check out my youtube channel, YuckTV!
The number one question kids ask at the end of each show is what’s in the slime! There are many, many different recipes for making slime. The one I use, I call “theatrical slime” because it is NOT a gooey polymer like you make as a science experiment. It is completely non-toxic and non-staining, and perfect for pouring on someone! It is even safe to eat (though I wouldn’t recommend it).
6 quarts of water
1 box of corn starch
green food coloring
Pour water into a large pot. Stir in corn starch, breaking up any clumps. Add 5-6 drops of food coloring, or more if you like. Bring to a boil (with parent supervision). Stir and reduce to medium-low heat. Let simmer for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until slime begins to thicken. Ideally, you will have a smooth, slightly thickened mixture, but if you forgot to stir, you will have some clumps on the bottom. Don’t worry, it’s all good!
LET THE SLIME COOL THOROUGHLY before use. I let mine cool on the stove and transfer then refrigerate it overnight.
Makes one big bucketful, or enough to slime yourself and a friend.
Rinse the pot before the slime dries so it will be easier to clean.
Whoever gets slimed should rinse their hair clean afterwards. Anything that gets on clothes, etc, will come out in the wash or clean up with a damp rag.
Yuck Game Show t-shirts and other merchandise are available through Cafe Press. These items were made available for the kind folks who ask for souvenir items. The prices are set by Cafe Press, and I have opted to receive any of the money from purchases to keep prices at least somewhat low.
