YMMV: El gran juego de la oca
  • Awesome Moments: Has its own page here.
  • Awesome Music: The compositions played during the challenges. There was Background Music that matched every possible type of challenge (dangerous, funny, underwater, industrial, etc.) , not unlike a great number of Video Games. Not only that, the composers never used the same challenge music twice in one episode except for maybe the first couple of shows. In addition, the composers usually played their keyboards along with the background music, ensuring that a piece would never sound the same twice and at times even providing Variable Mix.
  • Ear Worm: The theme song, the "Oca" songs, etc. - not to mention the "map screen" type theme that played any time anything was being explained during the first season (starting with the second season, a number of different "map screen" themes were used).
  • Funny Moments: Right this way.
  • Growing the Beard: It didn't take long. The challenges on the first show were quite simple compared to the ones created even two or three episodes in. Flequi began taking part in some of the Reocas, other Reocas sent the contestant to the United States, and one of the male assistants who only made an occasional appearance was transformed into Maxtor.
  • Nausea Fuel: El mimoso pringoso — a fat man made up to have horrible personal hygiene and ate spaghetti like a two-year-old, who would kiss either the contestant or the hostess depending on whether or not the player got the question right.
  • Negated Moment of Awesome: After landing on Flequi, one contestant's third question was to guess exactly how many millimeters a woman in the 18th century let her hair grow over the course of 52 years without cutting it. The contestant responded "3 1/2 meters" (3,500 mm), while the actual answer was 3,650 mm. They actually started to go to the judge until Flequi took matters into his own hands.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The "death" space. Quite a few of the challenges qualify as well.
  • Seasonal Rot / They Changed It, Now It Sucks: They replaced nearly everyone for Season 2, slashed the budget, added lots of laughably impossible challenges, and made it resemble the original Italian version instead of letting it continue to develop into its own series. Season 3 resembled the Italian version almost exactly, and they also made the mistake of trying to do it live.
  • Suspiciously Similar Song: The song sung when a contestant lands on an Oca space is based on the melody of "Camptown Races".
  • Troperrific: The show used so many and to such an extent that it was almost (if not directly) an invitation for contestants to test their skills against the raw elements of every movie and TV show ever produced.
  • What an Idiot:
    Emilio: Where are Romy and José Antonio located on this show? note 
    Contestant: In the cage???
    (Crowd goes nuts)
  • What Do You Mean, It's Not for Kids?: The theme song, the logo, and the set all look very juvenile. The rest of the show, well...isn't, almost going into Subverted Kids Show territory and definitely diving headlong into Crapsaccharine World.
