I was going to say the colours look entirely different in the background of the animation in the two videos above but that may simply be because the bottom Challenge video appears to have been recorded digitally (Tivo/Sky+/HDD recorder or whatever) and the original looks typical of VHS smudging the colours giving everything a brighter/slightly dreamy effect at certain points in the colour spectrum.

There's a clip of the episode uploaded in 2007 showing the full round, so doesn't appear to be from a clip show but looks like an actual TV recording.

I already mentioned this earlier in the thread- that recording comes from the Alright On The Night Cockup Trip from 1996- they showed the full round, not just the naughty bonus bits. I had that Alright On The Night episode on video at one point, I've seen it multiple times!

That explains why the audience laughter seems more muted on the actual recording - the clip we're all used to seeing includes the Alright On The Night audience too.

Another notable difference between the two clips is that there's background music at the end of the round as the squares reveal the full catchphrase.

Now, either it has been edited to make it more family friendly and they've added a bit of music in the process OR the actual episode was never as rude as it seemed, and some naughty people at the production company upped the ante to make it even more obvious for clip shows (Xmas tape style). And when they did this, they didn't dub the music on at the reveal.

There was a long video (15 minutes +) that some members here shared from Talking Telephone Numbers showing the producer in the booth. They apparently had a large meltdown with the VT among other errors. It was quite comical to watch.
