> Description 
Press Your Luck was an American television game show where contestants collected "spins" by answering trivia questions, and then used the "spins" on a board with dollar amounts. The person who amassed the most in cash and prizes by the end of the game won.

The show was perhaps most memorable for the Whammy, a grinning cartoon red creature wearing a cape. The Whammy's spaces on the game board took away the contestant's money, accompanied by a silly cartoon animation popular with the viewing audience (throughout the show's run, approximately 60 different animations were used, with new ones being added constantly).
