Double Dare is a game show originally airing on Nickelodeon with runs as Super Sloppy Double Dare and Family Double Dare as well on FOX and in syndication. This version is not to be confused with Goodson-Todman version on CBS from 1976.

Two teams competed. Both competed in a toss-up stunt with the winner taking control of the question-and-answer round. The team can challenge the other team to answer a question for double points. A double dare means the challenged team has to perform a physical challenge, which under Nickelodeon's standards was usually quite messy. Completing the stunt won money and control of the questions; failing the stunt in the time allotted gave the money and control to the other team.

The team with the highest score is the winner and competed in the Obstacle Course, a series of eight obstacles the team had to traverse and collect flags in the time frame. A prize is won for completing each obstacle; completing the course won a grand prize.

This edition of Double Dare ran to 1993. It was brought back in 2000 for a special run.
