Also known as "the day the classic music died", as Merv's departure from the show ended up taking "Changing Keys" out as well, removing a piece of Wheel's identity in the process.
Jeopardy!, meanwhile, kept chugging along as usual.
The Wheel of Fortune History Wiki is a veritable cornucopia of the show's ups, downs, and all-arounds from its conception in 1973 to the present day, with info and pictures you won't find anywhere else.
Did You Know? - Over 230 BAV members have been winners on Wheel, taking a total of over $7,000,000 out the door. Don't believe me? Josh Woo has the stats here.
I've never really seen any Season 18 episodes before, so seeing this episode was interesting (I've seen plenty of S17 and S19). I didn't realize that both tossups were initially just $1,000.
I wonder if they would have accepted "Meep Meep" for R2, since I've seen some sources claim that's what the Road Runner actually says. I must commend Karen for her bravery, because I would have solved after that Bankrupt scare, but she kept going.
Since Wheel usually features family-friendly entertainment, I'm guessing if R5 were to run today, they would not categorize it as Character (the early morning Jeopardy! rerun had Game of Thrones-themed categories so I've been in that mindset all day).
Was this the season where they started keeping all the wheel prizes every day? Or was that S19?
Fan of Wheel since the early '90s. My favorite seasons are 13 and 14. Currently recapping all the episodes in my collection.
Something else interesting is that this was the only week to use both of these new puzzle solve cues. After this week the regular puzzle solve cue became the toss-up solve cue and they reverted back to the 1997 solve cue for regular puzzles until it was updated in 2002!
Also the toss-up music used only this week is a slightly different mix than the one used until Season 20.

I believe that was when the $2,500 became the top dollar value for the 1st round
here's thousands of reasons to celebrate $100,000 -if a contestant wins $100,000 in the bonus round you've hit the jackpot with $1,000,000 -if a contestant wins $1,000,000 in the bonus round (if million dollar wedge is in play)
