Trivia: Showoffs

  • Hey, It's That Sound!: The "clang" heard for correct guesses was later used on Family Feud.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Only the pilot and November 28 seem to exist, the latter having a notable incident where celebrity guest Dr. Joyce Brothers injures herself.
  • What Could Have Been: Pilot host Larry Blyden was killed in a Morocco car accident a few days before the show was to begin taping. Rather than air repeats of Password (which Showoffs was to replace), have Goodson-Todman do more Password, or give The Big Showdown (which ended the week after Password) a reprieve...ABC decided that Showoffs would go ahead anyway, re-editing network promos to remove any trace of Blyden.
