      • MYSTERY GUEST: This long-lost episode was the only time that one of the most famous horror movie stars, Boris Karloff, appeared on "WML?" At the time of this show, it was more than a year prior to tonight that an early live anthology show he hosted for ABC, "Starring Boris Karloff," left the air (it ran from September 22, 1949 to December 15, 1949). This would not be his last foray into television; he would make numerous appearances on the small screen until several months before his death in 1969. Two of Mr. Karloff's subsequent television offerings enjoyed more success: first, as host of a filmed anthology series, "Thriller" (aka "Boris Karloff Presents Thriller"), which ran on NBC from September 13, 1960 to April 13, 1962; and more enduringly, as the narrator of the television cartoon adaptation of Dr. Seuss's "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" which first aired on CBS on December 23, 1966 and has become a Yuletide perennial ever since (though in recent years, like many onetime holiday TV mainstays, this production has moved from broadcast TV to cable/satellite TV). Mr. Karloff also spawned many imitators, most notably the late Bobby "Boris" Pickett who had a Number One chart hit in 1962 with "Monster Mash," which also made it back into the Top 10 in 1973. - 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.
