** Well, Mitsubishi has long since stopped making consumer TVs, Eveready is now Energizer (they still sell batteries under the Eveready name), and Pontiac went down in the GM bankruptcy on 2009 (they had stopped making minivans a couple of years before). So it's justified.

The show originally ran on Creator/{{NBC}} daytime and primetime from 1963-68 before {{Channel Hop}}ping to Creator/{{ABC}}, where it lasted until 1976. {{Syndicat|ion}}ed runs aired from 1971-77, 1980-81 (taped in Canada), and 1984-86 (as ''The All-New Let's Make A Deal''). The show went back to NBC from 1990-91 with Bob Hilton hosting, but after miserable ratings, Hall unsuccessfully came back. The show was revived briefly in 1996 on Creator/{{Fox}} as ''Big Deal'' with Mark [=DeCarlo=] hosting. Another revival in 2003, '''again''' on NBC with Billy Bush at the helm, lasted three episodes; this version is deprecated by most of the fandom. The current incarnation, begun in late 2009, replaced ''Series/GuidingLight'' on Creator/{{CBS}}. This version is an hour long and hosted by Wayne Brady; while nobody can take the place of TV's Big Dealer, the Brady version has been pretty well-received. Hall even returned as a guest for a week and gave his blessing.

** Some fans have complained when the show started tweeting what items to bring to trade for money instead of just having random items such as playing cards or paper clips.

** GameShowHost: Co-creator Monty Hall was the first and most famous, with Dennis James and Geoff Edwards subbing for him. Following in his steps were Bob Hilton, Billy Bush, and Wayne Brady. And Ricki Lake.

* ViewersAreMorons: ** A possible reason why {{Zonk}}s are physically labeled as such in the 2009 version. ** And beginning with the 4th season, the Big Box is actually LABELED "Big Box" because apparently you can't figure out it's the big box otherwise.

* AllOrNothing: The point of several games, although the contestant was often allowed to back out at defined points and keep what had been accumulated, lest they risk it for the whole lot. The most famous application is "Beat the Dealer," where the winner of a progressive-elimination game can elect to play the host for a large prize package by drawing a higher-ranked card than the host.

This show is the basis for a probability puzzle known as the "MontyHallProblem", and the style of [[TabletopGames role-playing campaign]] derisively known as the "MontyHaul dungeon" (sic).
