  • Trying to keep track of who has which sweepstake ticket hidden where is one of the challenges of this episode!

    8.7
    "The Sweepstakes Ticket" was taped on July 11, 1960, and originally aired Don ec. 16, 1960.

    1. The 1960 theme and opening credits are used.

    2. Even though this episode aired in December, Wilma says it is summer.

    3. Fred talks about Schultz's Delicatessen. Schultz is a "real" name that will appear a few more times in the series.

    4. Betty mentions Perry Masonery, obviously a reference to Perry Mason.

    5. Joe Rockhead is in this episode.

    6. The tramp who gets Barney's coat is obviously a parody of W.C. Fields.

    7. This is the first appearance of Fred's "conscience"--the little angel and devil that hover above his shoulders.moreless
