* November 23, 2016: For Thanksgiving and the show featuring celebrity chefs to present prizes that week, Yodely Guy has a chef outfit. However, when he goes over the edge on a loss, he gets stuck at the top of the board instead because [[SpecialEffectsFailure the hat made him too tall]] -- prompting Drew to just knock him off manually instead. What led to this, however, is [[WhatAnIdiot/ThePriceIsRight best left for a different page]].

* October 6, 1986: The Shell Game cheating incident had several of these through Bob his reactions to the contestant (Deborah) and, later, playing up the rather anti-climatic reveal. Upon winning her first chip, she lifted one of the four shells (which didn't have the ball under it), and saw that the ball wasn't there. After Bob scolded her, she put her chip next to ''the shell she just looked under'', to which Bob said that she was sweet for doing it but added "that's ''dumb''". After Deborah won the last two chips (and marked all the shells except the one she lifted), the audience applauded the upcoming win. ([[SarcasmMode "You know, I'm pretty sure she's won this!"]]).

* December 25, 1961 (nighttime): A blooper which remained dormant until resurfacing in August 2011 involved a bonus prize of an evening gown. As the model (Judy) turned around to show the low-cut back, everyone could see [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ie7fLlEezSk#t=3m16s a tear]] right at the "back" of the gown.

* March 13, 1963 (nighttime): At the start of the show, Bill introduced the fourth contestant (Anthony Kochinski) and asked who he had in the audience to see him. His reply? "The original tranquilizer twins my mother-in-law and my wife!"

* July 26, 1963 (nighttime): The third-to-last NBC episode had Bill starting right off describing a bonus a contestant had won the previous week (a role as an extra in a movie) and followed that by going straight to the first IUFB. Somewhere during the prize description, it dawned on Bill that he forgot to interview the contestants.
-->'''Bill:''' And everyone here in the theater knew it but me! The contestants knew it, the audience knew it...and now I'd like to introduce Hugh Downs who will come out and finish the show!

His announcer, Downs {then also the host of ''{{Series/Concentration}}''}, took over for that telecast.)[[/note]]
* August 28, 1964 (nighttime): The third-to-last nighttime episode of the original series saw Bill plugging the HomeGame (''Bid It Right: The Price Is Right Card Game''), only to discover that the returning champion didn't get her second copy the previous week.

* June 4, 2013: The game Cover Up has the wrong numbers for the price of the car [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J9IvzHNNb6E replaced by pictures of Drew's face]], causing him to laugh uncontrollably at the fact that the producers [[CallBack took up his suggestion from several episodes earlier]] of not bothering showing the contestant the wrong numbers since it had no bearing on the game. It has since become a RunningGag with a different set on each playing (including punctuation symbols, elements from the periodic table, the word "car" in five different languages, [[ThemeTuneCameo notes from the theme song]], etc)
