Aired Daily 12:00 AM Jul 16, 1967 on CBS



  • Notes

    • Even though this was a rather so-so night for the panel, it was still an excellent episode. The panel was completely stumped by the look-alike octopus hunting brothers. Luckily, they more than made up for it when they correctly guessed that the second contestant was a female Good Humor Man. The fun really picked up and went into high gear when the hosts of all the remaining Goodson-Todman shows hit the stage. The panel was completely stumped by them, but they still had a rollicking good time. Of course, besides being produced by Goodson-Todman, these various game shows all had something else in common. They all would be cancelled within the next few months! However, all of them, with the exception of "Snap Judgment" would return. WML and "To Tell the Truth" would return in first-run syndication (WML in 1968 and TTTT in 1969) and "Password" and "Match Game" would return to network television in the 1970s ("Password" on ABC and "Match Game" on CBS). Also, even though the primetime version of TTTT was cancelled, the daytime version would remain on the CBS daytime lineup until 1968. Of all the shows that were represented tonight, only "Snap Judgment" would not be revived, and it last aired in September 1969. Also, only two of tonight's hosts would return to host the revivals. Allen Ludden would continue to host "Password" and "Password Plus" until he suffered a debilitating stroke in October 1980, and Gene Rayburn would continue to host the raucous "Match Game" for several years. The revival of WML would be hosted at first by Wally Bruner, until 1972, when he was replaced by former WML guest panelist Larry Blyden. When TTTT returned, its hosting duties would be taken over by former "I've Got a Secret" host Garry Moore, where he would remain until 1978. Unfortunately, the ever-congenial Bud Collyer would pass away after a long illness in 1969. - Sargebri (2004)
