      • MYSTERY GUEST: This long-lost episode marked the first of five appearances between December 17, 1950 and June 4, 1961 for veteran comedian Phil Silvers. About a year from tonight's show, Mr. Silvers began a year-long run starring as "Jerry Biffle" in the musical "Top Banana," initially co-starring future "Dick Van Dyke Show" co-star and "Hollywood Squares" regular Rose Marie as "Betty Dillon," and with songs by Johnny Mercer who would be a mystery guest on EPISODE #699 of February 9, 1964 -- the same day The Beatles made their landmark first appearance on "The Ed Sullivan Show." "Top Banana" ran at the Winter Garden Theatre from November 1, 1951 to October 4, 1952, with a layoff lasting from August 3, 1952 to August 31, 1952, and running for a total of 350 performances. An original cast album was released in 1952 on Capitol S-308, and later reissued on CD. Later on in "Top Banana's" run on Broadway, Audrey Meadows, then just a few short months away from landing the role for which she would become most famous, "Alice Kramden" in Jackie Gleason's "The Honeymooners" sketches, replaced Rose Marie as co-star, appearing in the musical for 15 weeks. As a side note, Rose Marie did not appear on "WML?" at any time in its CBS run, but was a mystery guest during the 1971-1972 season of the syndicated version, in what proved to be Wally Bruner's final week as host. - W-B (2008)

      • Per Gil Fates' handwritten logs, no kinescope of this episode exists. It was destroyed by CBS before Gil Fates noticed the destruction policy in 1952 and began saving the kinescopes. Only about 10 episodes exist from February 1950 to July 1952. - Suzanne (2004)

        Panel: Dorothy Kilgallen, Louis Untermeyer, Arlene Francis, Hal Block.
