** Around the TurnOfTheMillennium, ''[=MADtv=]'' started making ''Series/ThePriceIsRight'' parodies. By this time, Bob Barker had been hosting the show for over 30 years, so they decided to parody what the show would have been like in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W7To54TBBlE the 1970s]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jL_sIKL22I0 the 1980s]], if it were [[UnintentionalPeriodPiece filled to the brim with topical references]] and invoked [[FunnyAneurysmMoment Funny Aneurysm Moments]] (particularly seen in the 1980s version, with Josh Meyers as a yet-unknown Jeffrey Dahmer, Stephnie Weir as Martha Stewart dropping hints that she would later get in trouble for harboring inside information, and Nicole Parker as Tonya Harding before she got into figure skating). In reality, of course, ''Series/ThePriceIsRight'' changed so little during Barker's lengthy tenure that the most visible change in 35+ years was his hair colour (from brown to white).

Not only that, but Rod Roddy (Artie Lange) is depicted as having announced during the 70s; in actuality, Johnny Olson was the original announcer and remained until his death in 1985; a rotation of guest announcers ensued until Roddy (then known at that point as the announcer from ''Series/{{Soap}}'' and ''Series/PressYourLuck'') was picked in 1986.
