* TransAtlanticEquivalent: ''Series/DoubleDare'' (which didn't air in Canada, let alone on YTV) would be it's closest kin for American children's game shows, but ''Uh Oh!'' was less based on trivia and added a lot of varied gameplay options, for better or worse.

* GameShowAppearance: In a trope inversion, ''Uh Oh!'' was spun off from what was originally a scripted sketch on It's Alive!, which later morphed into a mini-game show, and then became it's own full fledged series.

* NonindicativeName: The Dump wasn't the game with the possibility of having slime ''dump''ed on you (that'd be Uh Oh!) Rather, it referenced "dumping" the ball down the pseudo-Plinko board, even though it just rolled down an entrance pipe onto the board and wasn't technically "dumped"



* ObviousBeta: ''Uh Oh!'''s predecessor run as an ''It's Alive'' segment
* RunningGag: Mr. Voiceman had these in his opening intro, including asking the audience a "What do you say when..." question (always answered with their shout of "Uh Oh!", and always introducing Wink Yahoo as "the only Canadian/North American TV personality who...", followed by a weird random incorrect fact.

** Patricia herself was an artifact, as her roles on the show (hosting the Speed Round and The Dump) could have easily been handled by Wink Yahoo without throwing the show into upheaval

* {{Spinoff}}: A unique example of a game show being spun off from a sketch comedy show, ''It's Alive!'' (essentially ''You Can't Do That On Television'' for 1990s kids) featured a recurring sketch about a game show with shackled contestants that would get slimed, which was later adapted into a real game show segment (resembling ''Uh Oh!'''s first round), and was finally expanded into it's own half hour series after ''It's Alive!'''s 1997 cancellation. Ultimately, ''Uh Oh!'' would run two years longer than ''It's Alive!'' did in first run, and it also got a much longer run of repeat airings.)

Children's [[GameShow game show]] on Creator/{{YTV}} that lasted from 1997-2003. A spin-off from the mid-1990s sketch comedy series ''It's Alive!'', ''Uh Oh!'' saw three contestant pairs compete in various stunts, games, and challenges (determined by the spin of a wheel) to earn points. In the show's eponymous "Uh Oh!" game, a wrong trivia answer would result in their partner getting slimed (an almost certainty on each episode), where a right answer earned the team 50 or 75 points. The first round and third round followed this format, while the second round saw contestants trying to predict the winners of an off-site obstacle course for 35 points, usually called the Slime Tour. Like fellow contemporary YTV game show Video And Arcade Top 10, ''Uh Oh!'' is a fond memory for many Canadian kids from the late 1990s and early 2000s, and reruns used to air on Discovery Kids (now the Canadian version of {{Nickelodeon}}) in the 2000s.

** A brief clip from Uh Oh!'s days as an It's Alive! segment was included in the long running Concerned Children's Advertisers PSA "Smart As You", as one of the programs shown on the talking TV in the spot ("I'm just a TV, I'm not even human!")
* GameShowWinningsCap: Like most other children's game shows, each Uh Oh! episode featured three new teams with no returning champions.

** Uh Oh! Deluxe was a permanent wheel space in the third round from 1998-2001, where contestants had to identify a smell correctly to win 75 points. If they failed, their partner got slimed ''twice''. It was replaced for the 2001-2002 season by Pick It!, where the contestant could choose that among the other wheel choices (aside from Win/Lose/Trade a Spin) for what challenge to do. Pick It! was itself retired for Uh Oh!'s final season to make way for the Fruit Gushers space.

* SpeedRound: Not only did Uh Oh! have one, it was called Speed Round too! If the wheel landed on it, "Quizmaster" Patricia Ribeiro would ask the contestant 10 rapid fire questions in 20 seconds, worth 5 points each. Though all fairly easy on their own, the speed factor increased the difficulty.

* TheArtifact: The game show format aside, Wink Yahoo, Quizmaster Patricia, the Punisher character, and his original actor (Mike Beaver) were all holdovers from It's Alive!, as was the conceit of having on-air talent playing a character, with the rest of the show's co-hosts comprised of new hires playing themselves.

* LuckBasedMission: The Dump, Uh Oh!'s Plinko {{expy}}, where contestants dropped a ball into the playfield to land in a space where they would either win or lose points for themselves, do the same for another team, or trade an amount of points with another team. As it was essentially Plinko, there was little skill involved.
