  • Notes

    • BEER JINGLE JOKE: After it was mentioned that the second contestant was a beer tester for Falstaff Beer, Arlene jokingly said that Falstaff was the beer you wanted if you were NOT having more than one. Arlene's comment was a joke on the advertising jingle for a competitive beer, Schaeffer Beer (brewed by the F & M Schaefer Brewing Co. in Brooklyn, NY) which advertised itself as, "The one beer to have, when you're having more than one." - Matt Ottinger & Suzanne Astorino

      By coincidence, "WML?" EPISODE #583 of October 1, 1961 featured contestant Paul Gordon, a "Beer Tester" for Schaeffer's Beer. To see the entire Schaefer Beer advertising jingle that Arlene spoofed, see EPISODE #583. - Suzanne Astorino

      Tonight's show was not the only time a beer tester appeared as a contestant on an episode where a sitting Congressman was a guest panelist. On EPISODE #450 of February 1, 1959, which featured among the panel Rep. James Roosevelt (D.-Calif., 26th Congressional District), the fourth and final contestant was John E. Eberle, a beer tester for Piel Brothers Brewing Co. - W-B
