After Merv Griffin stepped down as Exective Producer in 2000, the show received a new theme song called "Happy Wheels" arranged by Steve Kaplan. The theme was changed in order not to pay Griffin residuals for his theme. However, new theme contains a portion of the 1997 mix of "Changing Keys". The theme was remixed in 2002 again by Kaplan for the 20th Season. In 2006 the theme was remixed again and this edition was by John Hoke and Frankie Blue and does not feature a portion of "Changing Keys". See more »

A big wheel, Lots of Prizes, Music....Oh, where does the time go?
I love wheel of fortune. It's arguably the best gameshow on TV and you have to have seen it at least once or twice.
The game is played as follows; 3 people are standing at a wheel with various dollar values on wedges, and they have to solve a puzzle by guessing letters with every spin of the wheel. whoever guesses the puzzle at the end of the game, wins the cash they've accumulated throughout.
Now for my 2 cents on the show. First off, I Love Vanna White. 56 years old and she outclasses just about any modern model, celebrity, singer, whatever. She'll be 70-something before she quits spinning letters.
But for Pat Sajak, he's a totally lovable guy, but he really looks like he doesn't care anymore. He's been doing the show for 30+ years, But now he just looks bored. But if Pat Sajak goes, Vanna would get lonely and eventually quit too.
Bottom line, I suggest you watch Wheel of fortune, If you like watching people play hangman for cash, you won't be disappointed.
