AIRED:
"After the Interruption" This is a warnning about the upcoming probability tricks… "Cabot & Marshmallow" The pair play a game of "Heads You Win, Tails I Lose" to demonstrate the probability of one. "The Improbable Spinner Win" A carnival barker tries to swindle a lady into playing an unfair spinner game. He would win if the wheel stops on green, which takes up ¾ of the wheel. "Cabot & Marshmallow - Shelled!" The pair does "The Old Shell Game" without a pea, demonstrating the unfair game with a probability of zero. Music Video: Ghost of a Chance This music video, performed by Five Factorial!, shows a pizza delivery man trapped in a haunted house. It demonstrates a situation in which the old saying "a ghost of a chance" takes on a much more literal meaning. Wide Wide World of Sports You've Never Heard Of This spoof on ABC's The Wide World of Sports presents a Handshakes Tournament. The two sportscasters draw out triangular numbers to show how many total handshakes the winning team must complete. "Backstage with Blackstone" Blackstone performs a trick with a series of objects on the table: a key, a ring, a watch, a wallet, a thimble, a bracelet, a telephone, and a dictionary. Blackstone asks Larry to choose an object and spell its name one letter at a time with each tap of his magic wand. When Larry says stop, Blackstone's hand is on the selected object because each object has a different number of letters in its name. He would put his hand on the key for the first tap, on the ring for the fourth tap, then on the watch, then the wallet, and so forth. "Mathnet: Problem of the Passing Parade, Part 1" Kate and George plan the time and security precautions for Burbank's parade honoring rock musician Steve Stringbean.

      • This was James Earl Jones' first appearance as Mathnet Chief Thad Green. He would appear extensively in only two Mathnet cases: this one and "The Trial of George Frankly."

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Carnival Barker: (to ten-year-old boy) Get outta here, kid, ya bodda me.
        For the spinner sketch, Cris Franco revised the role of Sid Stone's carnival barker, a standard on Milton Berle's Texaco Star Theater in the early 1950s. In those years, Ken Shapiro played the boy who got in the barker's way. No idea who the boy was in the spinner sketch. If you have this information, please submit it.
