Family Guy and its cutaways and random pop culture jokes could fill several pages.  On top of that, there was an A-plot with Peter Griffin winning on Wheel of Fortune.
There's also an A plot of them appearing on Dawson Family Feud, of all places.

One of my favorite things that I think all of you would appreicate- just about every Jeopardy cutaway uses a different version of the show's set.

Didn’t Peter’s bonus round letters include two qs, the number 4 and the Batman symbol?

I recently rewatched the "2 Stupid Dogs" take off on PiR featuring Casey Kasem as host. Let's just say it was a lot funnier the first time I saw it when I was nine or so.

Suffice to say, there are a lot more game show parodies/episodes of cartoons than one might assume- wasn't there a page at one point that clocked all of the appearances that game shows made as a plot on other shows?
I can’t think of the guy’s name to save my life, but I wanna say it was Fiesta Jon. Granted that was 20+ years ago so I’m sure we could add several entries. Mike’s FG example alone could prolly be its own page.

Effective 4/15:

What's 'new': Body Language, Supermarket Sweep
What's gone: Tattletales.  Split Second, 80s LMAD, and Temptation are gone for at least the week of 4/15, and 80s Sale is reduced to two programming stunt eps, one from each version.  These may change back the week of 4/22 or change to something else. The prime/late changes appear to be normal changes, which includes 80s LMAD getting pulled from prime (and the return of Supermarket Sweep after a short hiatus as well as Body Language after a longer one). I think this is the first time Tattletales has been off the Buzzr schedule entirely (unless it reappears next week after the Spring Break stunt ends). Based on the time period downgrade and now nearing the end of Kroeger's episodes, wouldn't be surprised to see it exit soon.

Weekdays:
1:00PM to 3:00PM: "Spring Break Getaway" stunt. (See Below)
then:
6PM-8PM Match Game switches to 73
8:00PM: Match Game 73 x2 (Replaces To Tell the Truth 73 x2)
9:00PM: To Tell the Truth 73 x2 (Replaces Tattletales 76 x2)
10:00PM: Password Plus 81 x2 (REplaces Newlywed Game 90s x2)
11:00PM: Supermarket Sweep x2 (Replaces LMAD 80s x2)
12:00AM: Body Language x2 (Replaces Classic Concentration x2)
1:00AM: Newlywed Game 90s x4 (Replaces Password Plus x2 and Super Password x2)

Weekends:
Buzzr's "Spring Break Getaway" stunt (reairs from weekdays) blows out weekend afternoons from 1P-6P the week of 4/15.

7:00pm: Match Game 73 x4 (Replaces Password Plus 81x2 and To Tell the Truth 70s x2)
9:00pm: To Tell the Truth 70s x2 (Replaces Tattletales)
10:00PM: Password Plus 81 x2 (REplaces Newlywed Game 90s x2)
11:00PM: Supermarket Sweep x2 (Replaces Classic Concentration x2)
12:00AM: Body Language x2 (Replaces Classic Concentration x2)
1:00AM: Newlywed Game 90s x4 (Replaces Password Plus x2 and Super Password x2)

Most of the above had been blown out for programming stunts on weekends since the end of January, but that appears to be the new regular prime/late schedule 7 days/week
----------
The spring break getaway stunt will be a rotation/sampling of various spring break themed episodes and prizes from various shows in the Buzzr library, primarily Classic Concentration, Eubanks' Card Sharks, Press Your Luck, and both versions of 80s Sale.

Classic Concentration locks down the 1P Hour all week replacing 80s Split Second. Eubanks' CS takes the 2:00pm half hour all week, and a mix of PYL and 80s Sale airs at 2:30p. all of whom replace 80s LMAD.  (PYL M-W, Sale Th/F). All of those episodes reair on Saturday or Sunday from 1p-6p.

No idea what happens to that two hour segment (or the weekend time cleared out for reruns) the week of the 22nd, as the schedule stops at the end of Sunday and on-air/social promotions had indicated it was a one week stunt.

In addition, they'll be sprinkling new CC eps into the 4PM-6PM block on Monday, Tuesday and half of Wednesday (starting with 950--OAD 2/18/91).  Although I don't get why their numbering system still has them labeled as "90_0950"--it's not a matter of tape date; those shows definitely taped in 1991.

The Big Board / Re: Barker & 1994 nighttime price

Barker says he was offered to be host but turned it down. I presume the original idea was a 30 minute price similar to daytime and then when Barker turned it down, they tinkered the format?

According to Barker's interpretation of the offer...

Quote
“I was offered to be host of that show,” he says, “but that would be one hour five nights a week.”

...it sounds like he was pitched an hour-long show, presumably the same format of the daytime show. Whether Paramount could have sold a one-hour show is a separate question, although I'm guessing the thought process was that if they could advertise the same Bob Barker viewers love but with more expensive prizes, it would be an easier sell.

The Big Board / Barker & 1994 nighttime price

According to this 1993 article…

https://www.latimes.com/archives/la-xpm-1993-11-29-ca-62177-story.html

Barker says he was offered to be host but turned it down. I presume the original idea was a 30 minute price similar to daytime and then when Barker turned it down, they tinkered the format?

I just couldn’t see Barker doing daytime Price and a different version at night at the same time.

Top Cat had an episode with a takeoff of Queen for a Day called King for a Day.

If we're not limiting this to classic cartoons, Family Guy and its cutaways and random pop culture jokes could fill several pages.  On top of that, there was an A-plot with Peter Griffin winning on Wheel of Fortune.  There's also THAT episode of South Park where Randy Marsh goes on Wheel.

And do notice that Smiling Will Carson does not take a step while the “camera” is on him.  Applause to the Hanna-Barbera team for attention to detail.

Probably helped that was entirely consistent with H-B's "limited animation" budget.

And unless my knowledge of geology is that bad, was "Smiling Will Carson" is only time The Flintstones writers didn't even bother to try a rock-inspired take on a name (not that they were very creative with many of said names by just shoehorning stone or rock or the like into a name)?

I can’t think of too many cartoons that had a specific game show theme to them. Can anybody?
During the pandemic, some friends, many of whom are on this board, went through and created an extensive list of black game show hosts. We took an educated guess, then quickly found out the actual number was about triple what we were thinking. Suffice to say, there are a lot more game show parodies/episodes of cartoons than one might assume- wasn't there a page at one point that clocked all of the appearances that game shows made as a plot on other shows?

That said, my favorite was when Pinky and the Brain went on Gyparody.
