Motor Madness was a motorsports based television show on TNN in the late 1990s. It was originally formatted as a live, 3 hour show with a studio segment and coverage of a live event. Racing events included USA Motorsports monster trucks, demolition derbies, tractor pulls, swamp buggies, and either live races or upcoming previews of CBS motorsports properties—the World of Outlaws Sprint Series, American Speed Association ACDelco Challenge Series, the NASCAR Winston Cup Series, NASCAR Busch Grand National Series, and the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. In the second season, the studio segments were eliminated and were replaced with soap opera antics involving the announcers, due to the pregnancy of one of the show's studio segment hosts, Katie Haas. Many fans were angered at the change, and the show's live format was canceled. The name lived on for a few more seasons in a change to the Monster Jam monster truck exclusive format, then was completely abandoned for the Monster Jam moniker. Most of the live telecasts they did of the monster trucks were the Des Moines, Peoria, Beaumont, and Indianapolis for 1997. For 1998 they only had Beaumont and Des Moines due to the fake kidnapping storyline with Katie Haas who originally was on a pregnancy leave from being pregnant.

Motormouth was a Saturday morning children's television series that was produced by Television South and aired across the ITV network for four series, running between 3 September 1988 and 4 April 1992. Each series generally ran from the autumn of one year to the spring of the next, as was common among many 'main' Saturday morning series. The programme was launched following the decision to axe No. 73, which had run in the same slot until early 1988. No. 73 had been revamped during its final series as 7T3, with a partially exterior set. However, the new 7T3 set-up was expensive and difficult to produce, and so it was decided to switch to a fully studio-based set-up. The new show was produced as the same studio complex as its predecessor, and many of the production team transferred to the new show. Whereas No. 73 had included an inherent narrative storyline, the decision was taken that Motormouth would have a straightforward magazine presentation format. The studio set for the first series was dominated by several giant inflatable elements, including a giant motorised mouth, from which the show took its name. In the second series, billed in some cases as Motormouth II or Motormouth 2, there were changes, including the introduction of new graphics and set elements based on cogs and sprockets. The use of the giant mouth declined following this alteration.
