  • Notes

    • WHERE WAS PHIL RIZZUTO? - It would have been nice if the very first mystery guest on EPISODE #1, Phil Rizzuto, had also appeared on this episode. It is possible that he may have been invited, but was unable to take part. His last appearance was as a guest panelist on EPISODE #373 of July 28, 1957. Overall, he made a total of 4 "WML?" appearances from 1950 to 1957. Sports writer Bill Savage tells me: Phil Rizzuto was broadcasting for the N.Y. Yankees in 1967, along with Joe Garagiola, another "WML?" alumnus, but that doesn't seem to be why he wasn't on the show. The Yankees played at home that day, Yankee Stadium, and the game only lasted 2 hours and 20 minutes. The score? Washington Senators 6, New York Yankees 3. - Suzanne (2004)

      PHIL RIZZUTO RETURNS FOR THE SYNDICATED VERSION: Although Phil Rizzuto was not on tonight's network series finale, he would appear on "WML?" again - in the course of its 1968-1975 color syndicated incarnation. Mr. Rizzuto's appearance on the syndicated version, in which he was once again the mystery guest, was taped on February 5, 1970, which was exactly twenty years and three days after his mystery guest appearance on the premiere "WML?" EPISODE #1 of February 2, 1950. The host at the time of the 1970 show was Wally Bruner, the panel on that occasion had consisted of Soupy Sales, Sheila MacRae, Bert Convy and Arlene Francis, and Gene Wood was filling in for then-announcer Johnny Olson. The 1970 episode was aired by GSN on August 2, 2006 as part of a month-long commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the Baseball Hall of Fame. - W-B (2006)
