  • Notes

    • Gordon and Sheila not only appeared on WML as mystery guests this evening, but they also appeared on the show at various times as guests panelists. However, they weren't the only members of the MacRae family to appear as a panelist. The MacRaes' daughter, Meredith MacRaes, would also become a frequent guest panelist on the syndicated version of WML. In fact, Meredith was on the panel the week the syndicated show premiered in 1968. Meredith also become a famous actress in her own right. She was most famous for playing "Billie Jo Bradley" on the 1963 to 1970 rural sitcom "Petticoat Junction." Taking over in 1966, she was the third actress to play the role. She was preceded by Jeannine Riley and Gunilla Hutton, respectively. Interestingly, there was a lot of turnover in respects to the actresses that played the two older daughters, "Billie Jo" and "Bobbie Jo." In addition to the fact that three actresses played "Billie Jo," two different actresses played middle daughter "Bobbie Jo." Pat Woodall played the role from 1963 to 1965 and Lori Saunders played the role from 1965 to 1970. Ironically, the role of youngest daughter, "Betty Jo" was played by the same actress, Linda Kaye Henning, for the entire run of the series. Of course, Linda was the daughter of the show's producer, Paul Henning. - Sargebri
