America's Funniest Home Videos is a game show where people send in their home videos of situations gone awry in hopes of winning $10,000 for funniest video of the show, and then have a chance to win ten times that amount, $100,000, for funniest video of the season. The most common videos usually feature slapstick physical comedy arising from incidents, accidents and mishaps. Other popular videos include humorous situations involving pets or children, while some are staged practical jokes.

The show was rebranded to just AFV in 2001.

Theme LyricsEdit

The Funny Things You Do (1989–1996 version)

We've got laughs from coast to coast
To make you smile!
A real life look at each of you
To capture all that style

You're the red white and blue
The funny things you do
AMERICA! (2x) This is you

Stories from your friends next door
They never told
You might be a star tonight
So let that camera roll

You're the red white and blue
Oh the funny things you do
AMERICA! (2x) This is you

The Funny Things You Do (1997 version)

Home videos, home videos
SUNDAY!
You're the red, white, and bluuuuuuuuuuuuueeeeee!
(instrumental) Hey!

We've got laughs from coast to coast
To make you smile!
Oh, A real life look at each of you
To capture all that style (Yeah)

You're the red, white, and blue
The funny things you do
AMERICA! (2x) This is you

Stories from your friends next door (next door)
They never told (told told)
You might be a star tonight
So let the cameras roll (Oh yeah)

You're the red white and blue
The funny things you do
AMERICA! (2x) This is you

Trivia Edit

  • In Bob Saget's $100,000 AFV shows, balloons were dropped on the first prize winners after he/she/they was/were announced. Ever since Daisy Fuentes and John Fugelsang took over, confetti and streamers were used instead of the balloons for the $100,000 shows. They still use confetti and streamers today.
  • Bob Saget was also most famous for being a cast member on the sitcoms Full House and Fuller House. In fact, some of his fellow cast members have made special guest appearances on AFHV.
  • Tom Bergeron was also famous for hosting Hollywood Squares from 2002-2004.
