      • This was not the only time that ABC used the "Wide World of Entertainment" title. "Wide World of Entertainment" was ABC's slogan for the 1964-65 & 1965-66 seasons. The network also used the title from 1973-76 for its late night series of specials.

      • Part 2 of "Shindig in Europe" aired on January 1, 1966.

      • The two "Shindig in Europe" episodes were probably taken from an unaired 1-hour TV special. Plans for this special were mentioned in the November 27, 1965 issue of TV Guide (Hollywood TV Teletype section): Orson Welles, a stranger to American television, is in ABC's "Wide World of Entertainment" special. He'll sing along the streets of Paris for host George Chakiris. There was no mention of "Shindig!" on the above entry. ("Hollywood TV Teletype" was a weekly column announcing upcoming TV programs.)
        It looks like ABC adapted this special for Shindig by dividing it into two parts and adding intros by Jimmy O'Neill. O'Neill only appears at beginning of these shows. He is not shown interracting with Chakiris or any of the other guests. In addition, both episodes have the "Wide World of Entertainment" title. There is no Shindig logo on either show. (Shindig is only mentioned in a "voice-over.")

      • This episode was originally in COLOR. All known surviving copies of this show are in black & white.
