In January 2012, the stars of the panel comedy show ''Series/EightOutOfTenCats'' did an AffectionateParody of ''Countdown'', entitled - wait for it - ''8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown''. It proved so popular that it eventually became a series in its own right, with the first series premiering in July 2013.

* The word ''VOETSAAK'' was once admitted as valid. The reasoning is that this is a colloquial Afrikaans expression accepted into South African English, and is therefore to be found in English dictionaries. It was defined as a familar expression, inviting somebody to go away or to buzz off. Which is [[PrecisionFStrike on the way to being an accurate definition]].

* CuteKittens: Jimmy actually brings eight kittens in during one round to distract the contestants. It works, but he also spends the round literally herding cats when they escape from their baskets.
