Way to recap the 1000th show, Plinko.  :-)

A 52 day cruise?!?!?  :-o  :-o

Interesting how the second showcase was worth $7777.

I've seen this episode.
I got it from a tape trade April 2005.

Too bad they didn't use an opening like "1,000th Show".

I was kinda shocked to see that there was no balloons around the studio and the audience. Like on the 5,000th and 6,000th show.

Either way, it was still a good show.

A few questions and observations:

* Too bad this, the 1000th show, didn't feature some higher-priced prizes (e.g., a Cadillac Eldorado); have Bob dress in a tuxedo, etc. This is a rather significant show and reason to celebrate. While the prizes were decent enough, they should have gone whole-hog here.

* About when during 1976 did this episode air? And when during the year did TPiR start using the "Family Feud" music as a prize cue?

* What, exactly, did the game set (offered in Poker Game) include? I've seen the card for the prize before on Francini's Web site, but have always wondered what the heck it is.

* Wow cash offered in BOTH showcases! And a replica George Washington sword wonder from whom? Franklin Mint or someone?

I'm not surprised at all.  Price never used to celebrate landmarks as much as they do now.

According to the timeline, probably July; either late season 4 or early season 5.  The earliest it could've aired was July 4th.

Very nice recap. Judging by the use of the Family Feud theme I would guess that this was at least the summer of '76, basically late 4th season or early 5th season.
