Mad Libs is an American series of children's party game books created by veteran television writer-producer-director Leonard Stern and humorist,satirist and television personality Roger Price in which opponents can fill in the missing words in a hilarious or bizarre story. The entire Mad Libs game book range is published by Price/Stern/Sloan (stylized as PSS!), a division of Pearson's Penguin Group (USA).
In 1998, the American half-hour daytime children's game show Mad Lids premiered exclusively on Disney Channel.
Two teams of children, each with two brothers and two sisters, competed in a series of various word games, beginning with the first round in which Disney Channel viewers appearing on-screen identified the wrong words that did not fit in the story sent in by the viewer. Other segments include Mixed Up Mad Libs. The first son-and-daughter team to play
several word games and perform extrreme stunts won the series and competed in the Extreme Mad Libs round for the chance to win several merchandise prizes.
