TWISTER History

TWISTER was introduced to the world in 1966 and was an instant hit. Johnny Carson played TWISTER with Skitch Henderson on "The Tonight Show."

On May 3, 1966, Johnny Carson had TWISTER back on his show and the sight of Johnny sprawled on the mat with Eva Gabor sent Americans rushing to stores to buy their own TWISTER.

On May 2, 1987, the University of Massachusetts at Amherst set the Guinness World Record for the largest TWISTER game with 4,160 students playing TWISTER at one time.

Milton Bradley runs a TWISTER program for colleges and high schools. More than 1,000 schools have taken part in this program.
