  • Notes

    • Explanation of panel change: WML producer Mark Goodson started out as a guest panelist. The first game featured mystery guest Frank Sinatra. Mark played the game, and asked Frank goofy questions which were obviously targeted strictly for laughs. After the game, Mark said, "John, I have to make a confession here," and admitted that he knew about Frank's identity in advance and was just playing along for fun. He explained that this was Frank's first-ever appearance on WML, and that he and Frank had worked out a "plot" whereby Frank would then take Mark's place on the panel. So, immediately after his game, Frank did just that. He walked over and sat down as a guest panelist for the remainder of the show, replacing Mark Goodson. Mia Farrow, who was Mrs. Frank Sinatra at the time, was the second mystery guest. Sinatra finally identified her by asking, "You got the same name as mine?" He peeked from under his blindfolds to make sure. He mockingly pointed his finger at her and chastised her by saying, "you naughty naughty" and called her a "sneak." He said that he had assumed Mia was watching the show at Bennett Cerf's house with Bennett's wife Phyllis Cerf. After game 4, Mia also joined the panel for the goodbyes. - Suzanne Astorino (2004)

      During the course of this episode, six people took seats on the panel: Francis, Goodson, Newman, Cerf, Sinatra, Farrow. Perhaps this a WML record? - obbor (2004)
