----
* DuelingShows: With ''Series/CouchPotatoes'', but this show came first and lasted longer.
* HeyItsThatGuy: This show helped launch the careers of Colin Quinn, Creator/AdamSandler, and Creator/DenisLeary.
* HeyItsThatSound: A good number of them were used on some of {{Nickelodeon}}'s game shows (naturally, since they were also produced by MTV). For example:
** The "wrong answer" buzzer was used on ''[[Series/DoubleDare1986 Double Dare]]'', among others.
** The siren used when time expired in the BonusRound was used when the Brain Bender was solved on ''Series/ThinkFast''.
** The Lightning Round sometimes ended with the win sound from ''Double Dare'' and ''MakeTheGrade''.
* MissingEpisode: Parodied, when Ken supposedly unearthed an episode from ''1975''.
* PromotedFanboy: Ken Ober.
* PropRecycling: The show used props from earlier seasons as decorations in the StudioAudience during later seasons. Props from ''Series/FindersKeepers'' (also a Nickelodeon game) occasionally appeared, but usually as basement clutter.
