* {{Pilot}}: Filmed sometime in the mid-90's, ''Figure it Out'''s pilot contained many differences. The set was smaller and had a puzzle piece motif while Kevin Seal hosted instead of Summer Sanders. The full pilot has never been aired, and the only reason it's existence is known is thanks to a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JwRGRHSYvDg compilation]] of shows filmed at Nickelodeon Studios made by a former crew member for the place's 10th anniversary.

** In the first season, the Secret Slime Action prize was a merchandise item. That prize starting in the second season became a ''Figure it Out'' article of clothing, a far cry from say a $100 [=Toys"R"Us=] gift card or a mountain bike.

* UndesirablePrize: Inverted in Season 1, in that prizes for Round 1 involved sets from other (no longer in production) Nickelodeon shows that were based and filmed in Nickelodeon Studios. Played straight with the other prizes that weren't the Grand Prize, though. Averted completely in the 2012 revival.

* ButtMonkey / TheChewToy: Danny, natch. To the point that every time he felt he was on the verge of being covered in the stuff, he [[LargeHam hammed]] it up or went along with Summer's urging to get slimed.

* {{Flanderization}}: The show got slightly wackier as time went on. Originally, the secret slime actions were a little more complicated, and the panelists were given somewhat-helpful pith helmets to use. However, once they remembered they were on Nickelodeon, the Slime Actions got much easier and even sillier (hence, the "Being a panelist" type events) and the slime helmets were replaced with borderline useless plastic party hats. They were doing too because of the kids, of course.

* LargeHam: In the original, Danny, no doubt (definitely the reason he was nicknamed by J as the 'King of Slime' in one of the 2nd season intros). Matt Bennett from the revival definitely counts too.

* ShoutOut: Danny's catch phrase was "[[Series/YouCantDoThatOnTelevision I don't know!]]" At one point, it was used as the Secret Slime Action. [[GenreSavvy Danny kept his mouth shut once he started suspecting he was getting baited to say it.]]

* GenreSavvy: Pretty notorious in the revival. Though, there were times that the panelists of the original show also suspected at times what were the Slime Actions, and simply went with it (depending in varying degrees). If not, it was simply TemptingFate. However, it is notorious to remember that all of them were doing it for one of the kids of the audience to get a prize too, so...
** Summer would tease at times to the panelists of her choice to do a certain action without any suspicion from then just to take the bait... of course until the exact moment they ALREADY knew what was her plan along (and even they went along with it too).
** And then, THERE IS Jeff. It was no joke he would ''ensure'' that no one would escape through this, becoming more obvious their own hesistance to perform certain actions. For example, in an episode he told the panel to give a round of applause. Everyone except [[Music/BigTimeRush James Maslow]] did it because he suspected it was the Secret Slime Action, and he was right. In another, Jeff reminded everyone that it might be a good idea to wear their helmets and goggles. But only [[Series/{{Fred}} Rachel]] (who was the only one slimed in the previous round) was hesitant to do so thinking it was the Secret Slime Action. Guess ''who'' was right all along?

** A contestant's secret was "Double Crowned Karate Champion." With the word "Crowned" concealed, Danny guessed "[[DoubleDare1986 Double Dare]] Karate Champion."

* RogerRabbitEffect: The titular duo from ''[=CatDog=]'' appeared (in CGI form) in a few episodes of the original version as a panelist, and even got slimed.
