* NegatedMomentOfAwesome: Karen Martin, one of the more memorable contestants on the show, called for a "pool table for Dan" and actually landed on it, which Peter noted was a first. Sadly, she hit a Whammy later in the round, losing the table.

* NegatedMomentOfAwesome: Early in the series, a contestant called for a pool table, and actually landed on it, which Peter noted was a first. Sadly, she hit a Whammy later in the round, losing the table.
* OvershadowedByControversy: If there's one main thing ''anyone'' will know about the show besides the Whammys, it's Michael Larson's infamous [[CurbStompBattle Curb Stomping]] of the show's setup and the resulting legal battle that ensued.

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: The prize cue music, made even more awesome when a contestant wins enough to have it played in full. In one particularly memorable instance during Christmas 1984, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nzNanw_ga90 it played to nearly two full loops (starting 29 seconds in).]]

* DudeNotFunny: A contestant named Scott Haven was on for two episodes, February 27 and 28, 1985. He would often say "No little red men" as his description of the Whammies, unaware that "little red men" was a racial slur for native Americans. Peter could even be heard telling Scott that he had just insulted the entire Indian population. As a result, the audience would often boo whenever Scott spun, and actually ''applauded'' when he got a Whammy!

### Having Big Bucks always redirect to ''said generic trip'' in Round 1 instead of the big-money square ($1,000/$1,250/$1,500). [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AEzWa_0GoUg This playthrough]] shows the absurdity of this at 4:21 and 4:49, as the player hits Advance Two Spaces in Square 10 (which wasn't there in the actual show) which leads to Big Bucks...

** The DS version, though it also contained the looping board sound, managed to be ''even worse''. There are only a few Whammy animations (none of which you can skip), the Big Board doesn't even have its usual space structure, and your reward for clearing all the "episodes" is a credit roll ''you can already access from the Options menu''!

** And in the other direction, the music for Mole Patrol in ''VideoGame/SuperScope6'' resembles the board sound of ''PYL''.
