    Notes (20)

    • This is Charles "Bud" Tingwell's final appearance on the show as host, with Bert Newton taking over for the following seasons. "Bud" Tingwell, however, does reappear on a weekly basis from the fourth season as one of the celebrities interviewed for the show.

    • With the replacement of host for the second season, the format of the show also changed, through the removal of the narrator (David Reyne in season one). Instead, Bert Newton took over as both host and narrator.

    • This is Bert Newton's first appearance as host, having replaced Charles "Bud" Tingwell. Newton was given the role as part of the deal made by Channel 9 when they resigned him after he left Channel 10.
