In this episode of Wheel of Fortune, Pat Sajak disappears and Vanna White has to handle all the hosting responsibilities herself. At least she has Charlie O'Donnell to help her...

Unused Categories

Four category IDs exist that are not used by any puzzles in either of the puzzle banks. Strangely, though, they still have header images.

0A: Fictional Place, a very rare category that had been present since about May 1995.

0D: Person/Title, retired during the 1995-96 season in favor of Proper Name.

14: Foreign Word, retired during the 1992-93 season.

17: Slang, retired in 1995.

Unused Wheel Wedges

While this image is technically used (the game stretches it to make the Wheel layouts), the full-size $10,000 wedge is not. Oddly, the Bankrupt/$10,000/Bankrupt wedge is not present.

Next to the Free Spin image is the name "Scorps", which may be the designer.

Unused High-Score Table

Present in the game is this image of a high-score table, using the same graphics as the contemporary PC version, but with a green triangle behind the "BACK" button (referring to the PS1's Triangle button).

Unused Sounds

The game was initially developed for the PC, where instead of using the correct "wrong letter" sound effect, they used this sound effect of glass breaking.

Due to only having one FMV intro for the game, a good chunk of Charlie O'Donnell's lines aren't used. However, many of these lines aren't even themes in the final game! (Personally, I want to see how Wheels Day would work.) The only themes in the final game are Las Vegas, Paris, Hawaii, Holland, and Desert.
