GSN aired a little bit of the original 1962 closing commercial at the end of the broadcast. - ymike673
GOOF: John made a small mistake at the beginning of the program. He said that the panel would meet a mystery challenger after the sponsor message. He corrected himself afterwards, saying that they would start as usual with a regular contestant. - agent_0042
This episode was aired by GSN on February 19, 2006, just "one day" after its original airing on February 18, 1962. - ymike673
If you listen carefully at the beginning of the opening, you can hear someone cough. Could be Johnny Olson. - ymike673
John Daly addressed Darren McGavin as "Darrell" three times. More info under "notes."
HOCKEY TEAM NAME GOOF: After flipping the cards for the final contestant Constance Williams, John mentioned that Williams was the general manager of a hockey team named the Philadelphia Ramblers. As Williams exited the stage to shake hands with the panel, she was seen briefly talking to Bennett. As John and the panel were saying their good nights, Bennett "corrected" John, calling the team the Philadelphia Rebels. Bennett told John that he had asked Williams the name of her team. In fact, it was Bennett who was wrong. The Philadelphia Ramblers team was a part of the now-defunct Eastern Hockey League in the Northern Division from the 1955-1956 season to the 1963-1964 season. After the 1964-1965 season, the team relocated to New Jersey and was renamed the Jersey Devils, which was probably the inspiration for the name of today's NHL team called the New Jersey Devils. - W-B
Sadly, exactly six years later on 9/3/1967, the last WML would be aired on the same month and date as tonight's show of 9/3/1961. - ymike673
