Definitions for PDQ
Random House Webster's College Dictionary
Origin of PDQ:
PDQ and Baffle are American television game shows created by Heatter-Quigley Productions. Both shows objective was to guess a word or a given phrase in the shortest amount of time with the fewest letters given as possible. PDQ was syndicated by Four Star Television which aired from September 6, 1965 to September 26, 1969, primarily on NBC-owned stations but syndicated in markets where NBC didn't own a station. PDQ was named after its original sponsor, a flavored drink mix. The show and product shared logos, although on the show the initials stood for "Please Draw Quickly". Baffle was a revival that aired on NBC from March 26, 1973 to March 29, 1974 without a specific sponsor.
