    Starting on Wednesday, March 2, 1983, a "lollipop tree" was placed next to the anchor player on each team. That player, when introduced, chose a lollipop, and if it had a black stem, the team won a $100 bonus, which was not related to the score. Originally, only one lollipop in each tree had a black stem, but within weeks, there were ten in each tree.

    Using Match Game (1973) as an inspiration for a new show, Mark Goodson came up with "Fast Company". Fast Company didn't have families, a feud, or surveys but otherwise it was the same show. The show was a pitched to NBC and at the end of the run-though NBC passed on it. Mark Goodson resolved he'd make NBC regret the day they passed on "Fast Company" and took his project to the ABC network. Michael Brockman, then V.P. of Daytime programming of the ABC network, wasn't impressed, but he dealt with _Mark Goodson-Bill Todman Productions [us]_ before and knew something would happen from the time he saw the show and the time it would go on the air. Goodson continued to tinker with the format, making the contestants family members and changing the name of the game to Family Feud.

    The sound effects used on this show originally were used on "Showoffs" (1975). The bell clang for revealing answers was the bell which sounded whenever a teammate guessed the word correctly on "Showoffs". The dings for a #1 answer in the Face-Off, a family winning the game, and for answering the Fast Money round questions in the regulated amount of time were originally used on "Showoffs" for winning a game. The time's-up buzzer on "Showoffs" was used on this show as the strike buzzer. The time limits on Fast Money rounds were 15 seconds for first family member and 20 seconds for second family member, at answering the same five questions during the Fast Money rounds, originally.
