** To people more familiar with the UK series, the US version can come off as this- simpler intro, increased cash amounts and bigger prizes, different set, weird-looking logo, Mr. Chips is named Herbie, etc.

* SpeelMyNameWithAnS: The spacing (or lack thereof) in the title can vary- the American version didn't have it, but the British version (and the 2006 US pilots) does, so that's how we've spelled it here.

* SpinOff: The show currently survives as a phone-in game on BBC Radio 1's ''The Chris Moyles Show'' and is known as ''Car Park Catchphrase''. It requires contestants to phone in and buzz for answers using their car horns. Roy Walker is involved by use of several recorded soundclips. It's a case of ActuallyPrettyFunny for the way the presenters try to hold conversations with the sound clips; because of this, HilarityEnsues rather quickly.

Art James was the host of the syndicated American show in 1985/86, and the much more successful British version on Creator/{{ITV}} had three hosts Roy Walker (198699), Nick Weir (2000/01), and Mark Curry (2002). At its prime, the ITV version was one of the most popular games on British television and one of the cornerstones of Saturday night television. Part of this popularity was the presence of Roy Walker as host, so much so that when he left, the show quickly went downhill and was axed a few years after. A {{revival}} of the British version started in 2013 with Stephen Mulhern hosting. The format has also been exported to Australia, Greece, Indonesia, Poland and Vietnam. The Greek and Polish versions had female hosts in 2000: Joyce Evidi and Agenieszka Wróblewska, respectively. Original producer Marty Pasetta tried three times to revive the show in the US: in 1987 as ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T7V4Ei39uCg&t=37s Puzzle Roulette]]'', again in 1989 as ''The Puzzle Game'', and in 2006 as ''All-New Catch Phrase'', but none of the attempts worked.
