Odd request....ISO 70's game show foods....

My place of employment is holding an "employee recognition event" (the official term...), and I'm in charge of food. The theme of the event is gameshows. We're going to put on a few gameshows (family feud, minute to win it, price is right, match game), and have some other electronic versions (computer based) for groups of folks to play.

We're going to ask folks to volunteer to bring in dishes, so we'll have several mains, sides, salads, etc. But in addition, I'm hoping to come up (buy, make, whatever) some dishes or items associated with game shows. I think many of these game shows were at their height of cheesy popularity in the 70's. But I'm having a hard time coming up with foods that folks would automatically associate with the 70's, and that would be easy to make/hold for a mid day event.

Before tons of people say "casseroles", I'm dialing in from Minnesota, the land of 10,000 casseroles, so there will already be plenty represented, and folks won't associate them with the 70's. Green bean casserole is a very here and now dish in Minnesota (for the record, I'm a transplant).

I was thinking about TV dinners? Like buying a bunch of Swanson TV dinners? Anything else? Thanks!
