Fantasy was an American game show co-hosted by Peter Marshall and Leslie Uggams, with Chris Lemmon and Meredith MacRae as remote correspondents. Bill Armstrong announced the show, with substitutes from Johnny Gilbert and Charlie Tuna with Tuna replacing Armstrong about midway through the series' run. It aired on NBC from September 13, 1982 to October 28, 1983, and was videotaped at the network's studios in Burbank, California.
The hourlong show offered contestants the opportunity to "make their dreams come true".
It was nominated for six Daytime Emmy Awards, with one win to Uggams for the 1983 award for Outstanding Host or Hostess in a Variety Series. She was nominated for the same category in 1984.
This series would later be replaced by another short-lived game show called The Match Game-Hollywood Squares Hour in 1983.
Game Show Network only aired one episode of the series.
