* RetroactiveRecognition:
** The 1989 series was the first to feature the "deliberate continuity errors" Observation round, and the sketches starred a young Steve Coogan, then most well-known as a standup comedian/impressionist and voice actor on ''Series/SpittingImage'', with the debut of his most famous comic creation, vain but inept and sociopathic broadcaster Alan Partridge, still two years away.
** In the 1989 series, one of the contestants in the first heat of Group B was Jim Shekhdar, who went on to become the first person to successfully complete a solo, unassisted, non-stop row across the Pacific Ocean between June 2000 and March 2001.[[note]] Incidentally, the first person to row solo across the Pacific (but having stopped in Hawaii and having to be rescued by the Australian Navy just off the Great Barrier Reef), Peter Bird, also appeared on ''The Krypton Factor'' as part of a "Great Britons" special in 1983, several months after his journey.[[/note]]
