Did You Know?


This show is an April Fool's Day episode, and several things on it are intentionally done in unusual or flat-out wrong ways: * A running gag throughout the episode involves Mimi Bobeck, Kathy Kinney's character from The Drew Carey Show, taking over as Price's new executive producer; her "office" is set up on the Turntable, which is not used for any games or prizes during the program. Mimi is also listed as the Executive Producer in the credits, with Mike Richards's title reading "Assistant to the Executive Producer." * Everyone in the audience is referred to as "Pat," with Mimi explaining that she thought it would be easier for Drew that way, since he has trouble remembering names. Additionally, everyone in the credits except for Mimi has their first name replaced with "Pat." * The light border has all the colors of the rainbow cascading around it. * All of the graphical TPIR logos besides the ones on the Showcase podiums and the one at the end of the credits have their backgrounds colored blue-green and pink instead of orange and red; this unusual color scheme is also used for the rest of the text in the, plug, whose logo stomps on the website address. * The opening spiel is, "Here it comes! From the Bob Barker Studio at CBS in Hollywood, now under new management! It's The Price Is Right!" * All nine contestants are called to Contestants' Row with the phrase, "Pat, move it!" a line frequently used by Mimi on The Drew Carey Show; however, three days before the episode aired, all instances of "move it" were dubbed over with "come on down." * Rich is "replaced" with a new announcer (actually Rich disguised as a monkey, complete with a large banana on his podium), although Drew continues to refer to him as "Rich" throughout the episode. Additionally, the "real" Rich can be seen wandering around the prize displays during the fourth and sixth games; this is believed to have been part of a larger subplot most of which either was edited out of the show due to time constraints or was never taped in the first place despite it occurring during the taping due to the director never being told it was going to happen. * The Barker's Beauties are replaced with four men in possession of varying degrees of weirdness. The Beauties themselves, Rachel, Gwendolyn, and Manuela, are shown doing various other things during the course of the show: Rachel serves as stagehand "Big Dave," pushing the Big Wheel into place, operating Range Game, and pushing out Lucky $even's car; Gwendolyn serves as a page near Contestants' Row; and Manuela acts as a member of the audience, sitting next to Contestants' Row and continually shouting for people to bid $1. Drew points Manuela out before the fourth Item up for Bids without actually identifying her, thanking her for waiting in the line since 10:30 the previous night. * All of the actual retail price cards for Contestants' Row and the Showcase have the wrong designs on them. * All of Plinko's small prizes are "As Seen on TV" items. * The "model" for the second Item up for Bids, a treadmill, falls off of it. * The "model" for One Away, a confused, old man, generally forgets to help Drew; the two times he does remember, he either puts up the wrong number or turns the wrong trillion. * Mimi serves as the "mighty sound effects lady" for One Away, supposedly triggering the horn with a steering wheel on her desk. * All of Pick-a-Pair's groceries are related to holidays that have nothing to do with April Fool's Day. * The ticket plug is edited out due to the show running overtime, something that has not been done since Drew began reading the plug himself. * The large dollar sign on Rich's calldown window is replaced with a banana. * The sixth Item up for Bids, a grandfather clock, is displayed in Contestants' Row. * For probably the only time in the show's run, the consolation prize plugs are edited out due to time constraints. * The second showcase is an April Fool's showcase and initially appears to be exactly the same as the first showcase. After it ends, Drew begins to pound on the Turntable wall, yelling to Mimi that they can't do that. Mimi then comes around, trapping Drew backstage, and declares that she isn't done yet; a Mini Cooper that was not part of the first showcase is then revealed. * At the end of the show, Drew thanks Kathy Kinney for appearing and plugs her new book, of which everyone in the audience appears to receive a copy.
