  • Notes

    • (1) "WML?" SPONSOR WATCH: The opening sponsor tonight is Crest toothpaste with Fluoristan.
      (2) "LIVE" WATCH: The kinescope copy of tonight's show is the 45th such show still in existence from within the post-Kilgallen era to maintain the full "live" wording with no cuts on announcer Johnny Olson's intro.
      (3) Tonight's show is Martin Gabel's tenth "WML?" guest panelist appearance since Dorothy's passing, and his third joint appearance with the second-most prolific male guest panelist in the show's history, Tony Randall -- who this evening was making his eighteenth overall appearance, and seventeenth on the panel, since Miss Kilgallen's death. They had previously appeared jointly as panelists on EPISODE #601 of February 11, 1962 and EPISODE #802 of February 6, 1966. Mr. Gabel and Mr. Randall's next and final appearance together on the panel will come on EPISODE #873 of August 13, 1967 (which was pre-taped two weeks after tonight's show), which also saw them alongside the most prolific female guest panelist on the program, Phyllis Newman. Indeed, Martin and Tony would each make three more appearances before the end after tonight -- with Mr. Gabel being on the very last show, EPISODE #876 of September 3, 1967.
      (4) In an interesting coincidence of positioning, the "OO" letters in the "Drives School Bus" overlay screen were superimposed right over the fourth contestant's eyes.
      (5) "WML?" CREW CREDITS AND CREDITS CRUNCH WATCH: Once again, David Roth is credited as associate director; and given that EPISODES #855 through 857 are lost to history, plus the truncated end credits of the two shows preceding tonight's, this is the first time that B.A. Taylor has been credited as audio engineer since the most recent surviving kinescope to credit him, EPISODE #852 of March 5, 1967. And for the first time in ages, GSN refrained from "crunching" the screen during the end credit sequence on its February 12, 2008 airing of this episode, instead showing the end credits in its full glory, right down to retaining the "Rollercoaster" closing theme and Johnny Olson's ending announcement.
      (6) Right after the February 12, 2008 airing of tonight's show, GSN ran an edition of "I've Got a Secret" which was first telecast "from New York" via videotape on February 25, 1963 (though the episode today only survives on kinescope). Host Garry Moore welcomed back the regular panel of Bill Cullen, Betsy Palmer, Henry Morgan and Bess Myerson; and surrealist artist Salvador Dali was the celebrity guest. - W-B (2008)
