Daily Double Logo -3

These are the many looks of Jeopardy's Daily Double cards or graphics we've seen over the years.

Art Fleming EraEdit

1980s PilotsEdit

Seasons 1 & 2Edit

When a Daily Double is found, the camera zooms in and the Daily Double Logo flashes. It stops flashing when the clue is ready to appear. Originally, it was accompanied by a musical flourish when uncovered, but since late Season 1, it has been accompanied by a "laser" sound effect that has remained ever since. Since Season 2, when an Audio Daily Double is found, the camera faces to the player that selected it. Next, a little bit of music is played on some episodes and then the clue text appears below the player at the bottom of the screen.

These are the actual screenshots of the images shown above.

Seasons 3-7Edit

Starting with the third season, when a Daily Double is found, it's Daily Double Logo flips around as it zooms in. Back then after the player makes a wager, the clue text zooms in to replace the Daily Double Logo. But when an audio Daily Double is found, the clue is placed below the player that selected it at the bottom of the screen. Then the music plays for about 15 seconds.

Seasons 8-13/From the Grid SetEdit

Season 8 was the last season to have the clue text zoom in to cover the Daily Double Logo. It's also the last season for the clue text to appear below the player that selected Audio Daily Double clues at the bottom of the screen. In 1992, the Daily Double Logo is now seen next to the player that selected it on the left side of the screen. But, after the clue is read out it doesn't disappear. It would disappear when the camera would point either at Alex Trebek or to all 3 players. But since September 1992, the clue does disappear after the clue is read.
