  • Notes

    • Steve Allen appeared as a regular contestant and the panel was not blindfolded. They were, however, a bit stunned! They had to guess his line as a motorcycle shop owner. - Suzanne (2004)

      Tidbits: Happy Father's Day 1966! Larry Blyden used the word "prestidigitation," which means: 1. Performance of or skill in performing magic or conjuring tricks with the hands; sleight of hand. 2. A show of skill or deceitful cleverness. - Suzanne (2004)

      During the goodbyes, Bennett says to Suzy Knickerbocker (the pen name of journalist Aileen Mehle), "Hope to see you back in the New York papers." This is a reference to the fact that her newspaper, the "NY Journal-American" folded. The "New York World-Telegram" and the "New York Sun" merged with the "Journal-American" and the "NY Herald Tribune" to become the short-lived "NY World Journal Tribune," which closed in May 1967. - Suzanne (2004)
