* The short-lived 1998 revival of ''MatchGame'' used a Suspiciously Similar Song to the 1970s theme.
* When the ''{{Pyramid}}'' game show franchise was brought back in 1982 as ''The New $25,000 Pyramid'', it used a theme song that was suspiciously similar to "Tuning Up", the theme that had been used on all 1970s incarnations of the Pyramids. This is actually a subversion, as "Tuning Up" was a piece of stock music that Bob Cobert arranged, and the ''$25,000'' theme was his own composition.
