* BrokenBase: Who should've been chosen to host ''Whammy!'': Todd Newton, or [[Series/PressYourLuck Peter Tomarken]]? There are those who feel that Todd Newton was a good fit for the show and did a decent job hosting, and there are those who feel no one but Tomarken should've been given the job and that Newton should've stayed as far away as possible from the show, among other viewpoints. Not helping is the fact that both hosts taped a pilot each, and Game Show Network went with Newton over Tomarken because he was younger.

* FunnyMoments: Let's start off by saying that in ''Whammy!'''s second season, as Todd Newton stands on the edge of the contestant island and explains the rules, the island rotates for the players to face the bonus board. Graham Elwood, of ''Series/{{Cram}}'' fame, apparently didn't know this. When time came for him to host the AprilFoolsDay episode in 2003, as Elwood explained the rules, the island began to rotate, causing Elwood to cry out in shock and grab the podium for support.

** A ''lot'' of the Whammy animations. Like Don Whammy, who mutters "don't ever [[TitleDrop press your luck]] with the family!". Then there's the failed bungee-jumping attempt ("bungie-bungie-bungie!"), the ''[[Series/TheWeakestLink]] Weakest Link]]'' parody, etc.
