* HeyItsThatVoice: Johnny Jacobs (''Series/TheNewlywedGame''), Jay Stewart (''Series/LetsMakeADeal''), and Charlie O'Donnell (''Series/AmericanBandstand'', ''Series/WheelOfFortune'') were the original version's announcers.
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: For years, it was believed that only the 1974-75 season existed due to being repackaged for syndication (whose high ratings led to the 1977 return). In 2000, the master tapes for the first two seasons '''and''' the entire run of ''Spin-Off'' (Creator/{{CBS}}' replacement for ''Joker'') were found in a storage room at New York's WCBS.
** Only the first seven months of the CBS run was aired by Creator/{{GSN}} (September 4, 1972 to mid-April 1973), and of the following two years only the GrandFinale circulates. Another '''[[ArchiveBinge 122]]''' episodes from the final year (mainly EditedForSyndication master copies), ranging from #418 through the finale, surfaced in October 2013.
* OutlivedItsCreator: The show outlasted Creator/JackBarry by two years.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** CBS, wary of the quiz show scandals, had three hosts in mind for the 1970s network run rather than series creator Creator/JackBarry: Allen Ludden (who did the 1960s pilots), Wink Martindale (who later did ''Series/TicTacDough'' for Barry-Enright), and Tom Kennedy (who also worked for Barry-Enright as host of ''[[BreakTheBank1976 Break The Bank]]''.) Due to each already having other game show commitments (''Series/{{Password}}'', ''Series/{{Gambit}}'', and ''Series/SplitSecond'' respectively), and despite [[Series/ThePriceIsRight Bob Barker]] begging to be given something other than ''Price'', Barry was allowed to host...for 13 weeks. By January 1973, with no complaints from the viewers or network, Jack signed a regular contract.
** The 1983-84 season (the seventh in syndication) would've been Barry's last in any case. He was to pass the torch to Jim Peck, a frequent substitute host, on the Season 8 premiere. His death shortly after finishing Season 7, however, caused Dan Enright to question Jack's choice (he wasn't sure Jim could carry the show). Enright instead hired Creator/BillCullen (from another B&E show, ''Series/HotPotato'', which was canned shortly before this) based on his game show hosting reputation. With Bill, the show lasted another two years in syndication (and would sadly be his last game show; Bill died in July 1990). Though disappointed, Peck still continued with the series in a guest hosting capacity.
*** Enright later ended up regretting his decision not to let Peck host, as it led to the resignations of three key staffers at Barry-Enright who were angry at him for defying Barry's wishes: executive producer Ron Greenberg, producer Gary Cox, and director Richard S. Kline. Greenberg and Kline formed their own production companies, while Cox went to work for Reg Grundy Productions, the company responsible for Creator/{{NBC}} games ''Series/SaleOfTheCentury'' and ''Series/{{Scrabble}}''.
