Mr. Fish (Mark Mitchell)
EC plays lift-off
ABC: 1994

EC Plays Lift-Off was a 1994 game show spin-off of the children's TV show Lift Off.

EC Plays Lift-Off was hosted by Mark Mitchell in character as Mr Fish (a child-hating character), who was transformed into a kind and gentle quizmaster at the beginning of each show. Two teams of three children were selected to play in a series of games themed around Lift-Off.

The main object of the game was to fill in a jigsaw puzzle board with puzzle pieces of various shapes and sizes. Pieces were earned as part of the gameplay.

The gameplay was interspersed with clips of Boris, Morris, Doris and Wolf either playing along with the game or performing a sketch related to the gameplay.

Rounds Edit


This round featured LOTIS, the talking elevator. The object of this round was to correctly match a colour-and-sound sequence that was played by LOTIS.

Rocky Edit

The object of this round was to observe pictures of everyday things in strange locations or ways, and correctly guess what those things were.

Beverley Edit

This round featured Beverley, a one-eyed plant who showed a film clip through her eye, and the contestants answered questions about the film clip.

Wakadoo Edit

Based on the puppet café sequence of the same name, the teams put their hands into a box of food and had to correctly guess the food.

The first team to completely fill their puzzle board won a prize package.
