Season 10 (1993-1994)Edit

Season changes:

  • At the beginning of this season, Johnny Gilbert's catchphrase is changed to say at the start of every episode, which is: "Celebrating its 10th year, as America's favorite answer and question show, This is Jeopardy!".
  • This is the last season to be produced by Merv Griffin Enterprises, which had been in use since the first season.
  • The opening credits have changed to the Jeopardy! 10th-anniversary logo on the game board. After that, the Jeopardy! 10th-anniversary logo zooms out and stays onscreen, and then, it breaks into pieces.
  • The copyright card looks similar to early Season 7 episodes, but with a cloud background, and an upside down triangle that has a light in it, and the rectangle is blue and larger.
