* FollowTheLeader: There were several "messy kids' show" clones, most egregiously the short-lived ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SqzyGmeX4No Slime Time]]''. However, most of the other kids' games of the era had completely different stunts and/or presentation.

There were two short-lived spin-offs: the first ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zXsuxbx0TQ0 Super Sloppy Double Dare]]'', which was just like regular ''Double Dare'' except it took place in New York and aired on Sunday mornings, and Fox's ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=irMlI6nl8DU Family Double Dare]]'', which expanded the scope of players to include adults, and aired on Saturday nights.

A UK version of the show was made, the only major difference being the teams played for points rather than money (UK law forbids kids from winning cash on game shows). It became famous for host Peter Simon slipping on the gunge and falling over, which happened almost OnceAnEpisode.

* ClipShow: There were four Direct-To-Video specials with memorable clips from various episodes, as well as a TV Special from 1990 called ''Salute to Double Dare''. One of the weirdest clip was from 1990, and in it, Marc was seen being dragged by several people into the vat at the bottom of Sundae Slide. This clip turned out to be from a dress rehearsal, that had production crew members playing the game.

Children's [[GameShow quiz/stunt show]] on Creator/{{Nickelodeon}}, and is arguably considered the greatest game show for such audience, with seven years (1986-1993) and 525 episodes under its belt. Teams answered questions to earn money, trying to be the leader after the end of two rounds. The team in control could answer a question asked to them or "Dare" the other team, letting them try to answer for double the money. The other team could then "Double Dare" in return, doubling the value again (i.e., four times the original amount). Once a question had been Dared or Double Dared, an incorrect answer would award the money to the opposing team.

* EpicFail: On the first taped episode (''not'' the first one aired), the first item in the Obstacle Course (find a flag hidden inside a pillow) was missing said flag. On the second take, the flag was ''still'' missing due to miscommunication. The flag was present on the third take, but in addition to the clock freezing at 60 seconds, a cameraman fell, getting right in the contestants' way immediately afterward. A ''fourth'' take was necessitated which went into the episode as aired.

A [=UK=] version of the show was made, the only major difference being the teams played for points rather than money (in the UK, there's a law that says kids can't win cash on a game show). It became famous for host Peter Simon slipping on the gunge and falling over, which happened almost OnceAnEpisode.
