In addition, he was the creator of Bumper Stumpers. Famous for his campy, cheesy personality (his colorful suits, "hat day" on Tic-Tac-Dough, etc.), Martindale quickly became one of America's favorite game show hosts and is thought to be the inspiration for the game show host stereotype as it is today.

As of today, he is the second television personality to have hosted 15 game shows, behind fellow veteran game show host, Bill Cullen, who had hosted 23, and in front of fellow game show hosts Tom Kennedy, who hosted 13, and Bob Eubanks and Alex Trebek, who both had hosted 9. His rendition of the spoken-word song, "The Deck Of Cards," went to number seven on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and sold over a million copies in 1959. It also peaked at #5 in the UK Singles Chart in April 1963, one of four visits to that chart. It was followed by "Black Land Farmer". Read more on Last.fm.
