Original YTMND:
Olmec Guides You Through the Hidden Temple  
Worthy spinoffs:

Olmec is the co-host of the 1993-1995 Nickelodeon game show "Legends of the Hidden Temple". He has been used in a few fads, most notably "Olmec Guides You Through the YTMND Temple", in which various fads are substituted for his actual words as he describes the temple for the players.

  • Olmec's voice was provided by Dee Bradley Baker, who also announced prizes on the show in his normal voice. To make Olmec's mouth move, Baker pulled a wire and Olmec's eyes were sound activated (the louder Baker spoke, the brighter the lights went). Baker went on to provide voices in many Nickelodeon cartoons, most notably SpongeBob SquarePants and The Fairly OddParents.
  • In many of the Season 1 episodes, the camera did not cut away to the prizes soon enough, and Olmec's eyes can be seen lighting up for a split second as the prizes are announced.
  • Olmec's look and placement during the show's three-year span changed. In season one, he was at ground level. In seasons two and three, he was placed farther up on the Temple stairs, and the stairs were also stretched out more. He also had an orangish glow on him. In season three, Olmec had a very old look and a golden glow.
