Runaround was a kids' game show that aired on NBC Saturday mornings.

Nine children were asked questions and were shown three possible answers on each of three large revolving blocks. The kids stood on the platform they believed was the correct answer. They were given an opportunity to change platforms but had to stay where they were after host Paul Winchell snapped a clicker. The correct answer is shown from the string of lights around it. Correct answers score tokens for the kids; the kids on wrong answers were sent to a "penalty box."

Players with the most tokens at show's end won prizes.
