Trivia / Blank Check

Trivia related to the Game Show:

  • Creator Backlash: Art James and the staff are confirmed to have disliked this show, calling it "Blank Mind".
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Only Pilot #1 and Episode #3 are known to exist.
  • Name's the Same:
    • Co-creator Rich Jeffries is not the same person who announced the 1987 version of Blockbusters.
    • The show itself is not to be confused with the pricing game on The Price Is Right formerly called "Blank Check" (which they were forced to rename "Check Game" following a lawsuit from Dan Enright).

Related to the film:

  • Creator Killer:
    • It's the final film to be written by Blake Snyder, who is one of the guys who wrote the "flatworm could write better" Sylvester Stallone Old Shame Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot. After that, his next screen credit would be a memorial credit on Jeffrey Katzenberg's other major animation house DreamWorks Animation's How to Train Your Dragon (Katzenberg was still chairman of the Disney studios when Blank Check was released).
    • It would also be 5 years before director Rupert Wainwright directed another film.
