- Awesome Music: Peter's Theme (the theme song) and the Bonus Game theme, which unfortunately are missing; Otis Conner, the composer, said he doesn't have a copy.
- Germans Love David Hasselhoff: The British version lasted much longer than the original American version- indeed, this was the third game show hosted by Paul Daniels that originated as a short-lived American game. The others were Odd One Out (1982-85)note and Every Second Counts (1986-93)note .
- Seasonal Rot: The Bob Monkhouse era in the UK- the show was moved to daytime (which meant massive budget cheapening), the cool set, music and graphics were ditched, the gameboard was tough for viewers to read, and Monkhouse himself was in a similar situation to Bill Cullen on The Joker's Wild- slowing down and unable to keep up with the shows' fast pace (indeed, it's been speculated that the hectic taping days- Monkhouse wrote in his diary "I am wiped out"- may have sped up the prostate cancer which took his life in 2003).
YMMV / Wipeout (1988)
