Pretty good show, even though only 2 games were won.

The games and the prizes were great, especially Money Game being played for a boat.
The most expensive showcase was won.
A hilarious moment in Showcase Showdown #2 ensued in which Velma mauled Bob after winning $11,000 (Thanks YouTube!).

Overall, a great show.

This episode debuted the two putt rule in Hole in One, although the Or Two sign hadn't debuted yet. The current Hole in One set debuted a couple of a years later.

Made a mistake in Race Game. I forgot to put the prices of the items!

The microwave oven was $429, the stereo was $1,199, the lawnmower was $1,469, and the clock was $2,100.

Sorry!  :lol: :lol: :oldlol: :oldlol:

Just wondering: Is this the only primetime episode in which a contestant successfully hit a dollar in his/her Bonus Spin? The reason I'm asking is because I remember that it never happened on the TPIR Salutes series from 2002 or any of the MDS's (in fact, two million-dollar spins literally stopped exactly one peg short of the 100 space!).

I think that moment is on YouTube, if I recall.

Just a personal opinion: Velma's pretty cute.
