* DepartmentOfTheRedundancyDepartment: The show's full CatchPhrase was "Don't be surprised if sometime, somewhere, someplace when you least expect it, someone steps up to you and says.... 'Smile, you're on ''Candid Camera''.'" The latter two, "somewhere" and "someplace" mean essentially the same thing.

There was a poorly received syndicated version in the 1990s starring Creator/DomDeLuise. Another incarnation starred Allen's son Peter Funt and Dina Eastwood, and ran until 2004 on the PAX Network. Another revival began on Creator/TVLand in August 2014, retaining Peter Funt, but adding Mayim Bialik as co-host. Some of the pranks in the 2014 version are played by Peter's son, Danny.

* NationalAnthem: One prank involved setting up a fake Canadian border on an isolated road the middle of the US, and then prank the hapless victims who happen to be using the road into thinking they've arrived at the Canadian border and must sing the Canadian national anthem, O Canada, to cross.

** The Bavarian fire drill was, in fact, a standard operating procedure for many of the show's pranks, which often involved the pranker (often one of the Funts) dressing up as some sort of public official and seeing how people reacted to some ridiculous rule or law they were supposedly enforcing.

The original show began radio as ''The Candid Microphone'' in 1947 and was created and produced by Allen Funt. After a few theatrical live action shorts under that title, the TV version premiered in 1948 and has ran off and on ever since. It used hidden cameras to film ordinary people in unusual situations, such as a desk with drawers that pop open when one is closed. When the joke was revealed, the victims would be greeted with the {{catchphrase}} "Smile, you're on ''[[TitleDrop Candid Camera]]''." Celebrities were regularly featured as well, either as victims of or as participants in a prank. Participants in gags included Creator/WoodyAllen and Creator/BusterKeaton.
