  • Notes

    • REVIEW: This was a pretty decent night as the panel, rather, the boss himself Mark Goodson, went a fairly respectable 2 for 3 on the evening. Things didn't start so well in the first game as the panel was absolutely stumped by the lady who sold screwdrivers. Of course, as was pointed out during the game, this was not an occupation where a woman would necessarily be associated. The panel was a little bit more successful in the second game as Mark correctly guessed that the young lady from Brooklyn had something to do with hot dogs. It was later revealed that she sold hot dogs from a push cart. Mark also had the correct guess in the mystery guest round as he correctly identified Allan Sherman, who was on the show to promote his latest album. Allan did a great job fooling the panel as he spoke softly for Mark, Tony and Helen, but when he came to Arlene, he raised his voice up so loud that John feared for the boys in the booth, especially director Frank Heller. That was definitely a fun way to end the evening. - Sargebri (2008)

      FAREWELL HELEN GURLEY BROWN!!! This was the final appearance on the panel for Cosmopolitan editor Helen Gurley Brown. Her first appearance was on the episode immediately following the "Tribute" episode for Dorothy Kilgallen, after Dorothy's sudden death. On Helen's first appearance, she made a great impression, and on her subsequent four appearances, she added a certain style and grace to the panel. Ironically, Tony was on the panel during her first and final appearances on the show. - Sargebri (2008)

      ALLAN SHERMAN: As was mentioned during the post game chat with Allan Sherman, Allan was the creator of another highly successful Goodson-Todman panel show, "I've Got a Secret." Ironically, it was Mark who identified him. What made it so ironic was the fact that Mark and Bill had fired Sherman several years earlier. Also ironic was the fact that IGAS aired its final episode a few weeks earlier on April 3, 1967, becoming the one of first of CBS's prime time game shows to get the ax due to the network's purge of all game shows. - Sargebri (2008)
