* FunnyAfro: Trebek, believe it or not. Complete with the PornStache he used to have, the man could not ''look'' more 1970s than he did on ''Double Dare''. And he had it during almost all of his 1970s hosting gigs.

Not to be confused with Creator/{{Nickelodeon}}'s ''[[Series/DoubleDare1986 Double Dare]], which is a very different show.

* RecycledSoundtrack: Probably as a payback for taking assorted sound effects from other CBS shows (including ''Series/ThePriceIsRight'''s LosingHorns and the ''Main/TriviaTrap''/Penny Ante noise), the theme music (as well as the entire structure of the intro itself) was later recycled on ''CardSharks''. * SophisticatedAsHell: Trebek.

While this WAS Trebek's only show for CBS, Classic Concentration was, at the time, a Mark Goodson television production.

GameShow created by Jay Wolpert for Creator/MarkGoodson, which aired on Creator/{{CBS}} from 1976-77. Host Creator/AlexTrebek read a series of clues to his two contestants, who were in {{Sound Proof Booth}}s. When one player buzzed in to guess the subject, the other player's booth closed. An incorrect answer resulted in a "penalty clue" and free guess for the opposing player. A correct answer was worth $50 and allowed the player to Dare their opponent to guess the answer with the next clue for $100. If the dared player missed, the darer could "Double Dare" with one more clue for $200. The first player to score $500 played the BonusRound against "The Spoilers", usually three men (sometimes two men and a woman) with doctorates in different disciplines. The contestant was shown a subject and tried to stump the Spoilers by choosing four clues from a pool of eight, with the ability to pass up to four if s/he felt it too easy. Each time a Spoiler didn't guess the answer, the contestant received $100; if a Spoiler guessed the answer, s/he received $100 and were out for the rest of the round. If at least one Spoiler remained stumped after the fourth clue, the contestant won $5,000.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: During the final few episodes, the writers were starting to have fun with their clues (well, if that worked for getting ''[[Series/MatchGame The Match Game]]'' UnCancelled...). The GrandFinale featured an infamous round with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wJnywZuT0kI#t=10s some rather racy clues]] for "[[spoiler:a boomerang]]". The hilarity is only amplified further through Trebek, who was either completely oblivious to what they planted in there, or outright knew and delivered it straight.
