** The episode (first broadcast 20 July 1991) which had for one of its ''Limericks'' opening lines : ''At an orgy with Sir Creator/JimmySavile'' will probably never be broadcast in full again.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: [[BrokenBase Some people's]] reaction to the decision to [[CarriedByTheHost keep going with the show after Humph's death]]. However, after Stephen Fry, Rob Brydon and Jack Dee all hosted two shows each (recorded in a single session then broadcast over two evenings) Jack Dee has filled the Chairman's slot on a permanent basis, having hosted three full series since then.

* CrossesTheLineTwice: Rob Brydon ending a sweet card from a child to their father with the line,[when I make a mistake] "you hit me". The audience breaks into shocked laughter and even Jack Dee is utterly taken aback.

* AdaptationDisplacement: it's been called "the antidote to panel games"[[note]]in other words, a parody on more serious shows of that type[[/note]] for so long, yet many people have long-since forgotten what original panel games it was supposed to be an antidote ''to''. (Indeed, it's been so influential, it's difficult to think of many serious, non-comedy panel game shows that are still left on Radio 4... or anywhere else in British media for that matter.)

-->'''Jack Dee''': Before our next round, we have something to say to our special guest. Rob Brydon, actor, comedian, author, voice-over artist. You thought you were returning to your hometown in Swansea to take part in a light-hearted Radio 4 panel game. [''The ThisIsYourLife theme plays''] ...And you were right, you were. Onto the next round...

** The theme from TheFlintstones to the tune of "My Way".
** "Killing Me Softly With His Song" to the tune of "The Bear Necessities". Bonus points for Rob Brydon's fantastic singing voice.
* {{Earworm}}: Many of the "sing the lyrics to another tune" songs are rather catchy. ''Roxanne'' to the theme of ''Neighbours'', for example.

** In an episode from 1995 where, after they both try to speak at once, Willie Rushton says to Barry Cryer, "No, you go first, you're likely to die sooner than me". Willie Rushton died the next year.

* DudeNotFunny:
** Lionel Blair has stated this about the RunningGag whereby the Sound Charades round is introduced with an InnocentInnuendo at his expense. The panel and fans typically beg to differ.
** Also, in one episode, Humph messes up one of his lines. The cast respond to it by pretending to treat him like a doddering old man. The audience generally reacts with laughter, but when Barry [[BlackComedy rubs it in]] by saying "Your trumpet went very well at the auction!", there's a pretty huge audience groan to signify he's gone too far.
** The regulars have sometimes mentioned this trope when someone makes a joke about age, with the sentence "You know, there was a time when we might have found this funny..."

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Occasionally played with by playing a completely incomprehensible game that makes no sense, then moving onto another round and never playing that game again (such as ''Wordbuilders'' in series 56).

** Similarly, the game of One Song To The Tune of Another involving a Rolf Harris impression singing Sexual Healing to the tune of Two Little Boys has taken a horrible new spin

* SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments: The tributes to both Willie and Humph are actually quite sweet, given the cynical nature of the show.


Added DiffLines:

* TearJerker: The deaths of both Willie Rushton and Humph hit the fanbase and the panel pretty badly, to put it mildly.
