Episode Cats1, billed as 8 Out of 10 Cats Do Countdown was broadcast on 2 January 2012, as a special episode marking Channel 4's 30th anniversary.

As part of the celebrations, Channel 4 decided to "mash-up" well-known shows.

8 out of 10 Cats regulars Sean Lock and Jon Richardson were the contestants, while Jimmy Carr was the host. The match saw Jon Richardson winning by 45 – 21 in a 7-rounder.

Rachel Riley was, as ever, the arithmetician. The Dictionary Corner guest was Joe Wilkinson, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

It was then followed up by a rematch, 8 Out of 10 Cats Mashup: The Rematch, broadcast on 24 August 2012.

NOTE: In Round 1, Sean may have meant CHEEP rather than CHEAP. Similarly, Jon may have meant PEACE rather than PIECE.
