* PrecisionFStrike: [[In this Season 7 episode]], one of the runners in the bonus round looks inside a box and goes "Oh, shit." '''Uncensored.''' And apparently, the ''Family Channel'' censors somehow ''didn't notice''. (Pat Finn then says the "beep you heard" was because of a "technical error"- but ''there isn't a bleep.'') And it evidently didn't get censored later, given how this video is from a GSN rerun.[[note]]This troper theorizes that since the Family Channel was about to get sold to Creator/FoxKids / Saban, the censors were too distracted by losing their jobs to either notice or worry about said S-bomb, and it went under the radar since the episode wasn't rerun until quite recently.[[/note]]

The show is notable for having been UnCanceled ''twice'', with each uncancellation also involving a ChannelHop it aired on Creator/{{Lifetime}} from 1991-94, [[Creator/{{ABCFamily}} The Family Channel]] from 1996-98 (officially titled ''The New Shop 'Til You Drop''), and [[Creator/{{ION}} PAX]] beginning in 2000. Pat Finn hosted until 2002, when the show went into repeats for a year; it returned in 2003 with JD Roberto as host, running until 2005. Creator/{{GSN}} has aired nearly all of Finn's PAX era, beginning in December 2013.

Added DiffLines:

* ObviousBeta: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ziAqUdK0tGI The pilot]] suffered this severely- different logo, different host, a far more abstract mall set, a hostess- though some of the elements from this pilot besides the gameplay, including the shop names and Mark Wahlberg, were kept while everything else was changed and refined. Hell, one of the stores was a ''pizzeria''.
* RecycledInSpace: ''Series/LegendsOfTheHiddenTemple'', another S&S show, albeit with Creator/{{Nickelodeon}}, reused the "find and carry items through a mock-up of a location" concept and ''seriously'' amped it up.
* RecycledProp: The aforementioned pilot appeared to have recycled its' contestant podium from ''Series/FunHouse''- another Stone-Stanley production.
