Episode Description:

Juvenile Jury is an American children's game show which originally ran on NBC from April 3, 1947 to August 1, 1954. It was hosted by Jack Barry and featured a panel of kids aged ten or less giving advice to solve the problems of other kids. The show began in 1946 as a radio program on WOR in New York, but then successfully made the transition to television. It continued to be broadcast as a radio program until 1953.

In a 1953 episode, four-year-old panelist Michelle Fogel claimed that she was told the questions/"problems" the night before, and further claimed that her answer to the first problem was what "my mommy told me to say"; Barry then, and again several times during the remainder of the episode, tried to assure the audience that what Fogel said was not the case.

This day was a foreshadowing of what Barry would have to do in 1958 (in the midst of the quiz show scandals) – explain the same circumstances to a congressional committee.

The show was revived twice in syndication, once from 1970-1971 hosted again by Barry, and again from 1989-1991 (renamed The New Juvenile Jury) hosted by Nipsey Russell. Incidentally, Russell hosted another version in 1983 under the title Nipsey Russell's Juvenile Jury created specifically for broadcast on cable network Black Entertainment Television (BET), who co-produced the show with Barry & Enright Productions. This rendition, though short-lived, was the first original game show for the fledgling network, and one of the few in game show history to feature a predominantly African-American audience. As its theme song, Nipsey Russell's Juvenile Jury utilized the theme music of another short-lived Barry & Enright game show, Play The Percentages from 1980.
