The green stripes on Any Number have appeared nine months earlier that what has been indicated on the timeline.

I really enjoyed the Range Game contestant; I've never seen anyone with such a personality that you just can't miss her interaction, and is part of what makes a show great.

The showcases were on the cheaper side (even by 1978 standards), but it was a nice fitting tribute to Fingers.

As per the second game, they sure LOVED playing the "Family Feud" theme for car reveals during roughly the 1978-1982 era.  I've always wondered:  does anyone know when this theme started and ended as a TPIR car theme?

I'm not sure when it ended, but it was definitely being used by September 1976.

It stopped its usage towards the end of Season 11 when the 1983 package phased in, likely replaced initially by the "Truck/Van cue", and later the MGHS cue. I'd even say that it was the most frequently used car cue during the late '70s/early '80s for that matter, especially given Feud's popularity. Conversely, around the time the Feud (and Bean Stalker/Big Banana) was first used, the trumpet variant of a popular showcase cue was retired.

This is slightly incorrect.  The Feud cue was part of Price's music package originally.  Also, that trumpet variant was still being used on the show well into 1976, so it wasn't retired immediately.  I'd say based on what I've seen episode wise, that it did not make it until 1977.

Another thing I've noticed is that the yellow tiles in front of Contestants' Row are still there but by early next month at the latest they were gone.

Yes - the yellow tile disappearance is noted in the Timeline in the FAQ; but I'd never seen precise dates on the start and finish of the Feud music as a car cue.  I had always suspected it started sometime in late 1976, because I remember seeing an episode where it was used with Anitra still on the show.  That came as a surprise to me because the Feud theme seems like a totally different chapter from her era on the show, but it appears the two did (briefly) overlap.  It looked odd to see her and hear that theme.  I could never narrow down an exact date on when it stopped though.
