* HilariousInHindsight: The exact premise of the Video Challenges would be reproduced over two decades later in ''VideoGame/NESRemix''. The hilarious part is that the latter involves the [[{{Nintendo}} one company]] whose consoles/games were never on the show.
* {{Scrub}}: Some of the players just look like they haven't even touched a video game controller before.
* WhatAnIdiot:
** Seriously, gathering 10-20 rings in 30 seconds in [[GreenHillZone Green Hill]] [[SonicTheHedgehog Zone]] shouldn't be that hard no matter how old you are. You can pretty much get it by accident just by holding Right...
** There are [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R3AH9y_wkk0 far more]] idiotic decisions then that. That girl actually may have been one of the ''best'' players on the show.
** The few contestants who were [[TooDumbToLive stupid enough to go backwards on the board]] and activate the "Time Bomb", where they would have to [[NintendoHard pong-spell a word in ten seconds]] with each other to keep control of the board.
** Some are even stupid enough to try to move in a direction they can't even go.
--> "Mikey's moving right... Oh, he can't move right! He's at the edge."
** Upon being asked the question "How much does an ounce of gold weigh?", one team responded with "14 ounces".
** One kid did an Arsenio Hall-esque "whoop-whoop" arm motion throughout the game to pump himself up and make himself look foolish. He continued doing this even as he and his teammate went down in a flaming sub-50 point defeat at the hands of the red team.
** Whoever wrote that question about ''{{Misery}}''. Seriously, who in the right mind would expect a typical child to correctly answer a question about an R-rated film adaptation of a Creator/StephenKing novel?
** On the ''Series/ClarissaExplainsItAll'' special, one of the video puzzles was to predict how many bricks out of 35 a Taekwondo expert could break in a minute. The yellow team's prediction? ''[[EpicFail 58]]''.
