  • Season 6 Episode 38: EPISODE #259

  • GOOF: In the last game, the contestant's occupation should have read "Housewife, Mrs. America, 1956" but it read "1955" instead. She corrected John after her game. - Suzanne (2005)

  • Season 6 Episode 35: EPISODE #256

  • BENNETT INTRODUCTION GOOF WATCH: In introducing the news analyst/panel moderator, Bennett incorrectly calls him "John Francis Daly." Mr. Cerf would occasionally use the "Francis" name in his introductions of Mr. Daly over the next several years. John's correct birth name is John Charles Patrick Croghan Daly. - W-B (2008)

  • Season 6 Episode 30: EPISODE #251

  • GOOF: Following the evening's mystery challenger segment, John stated, "Alright, panel. Will you sign in please, sir? We'll see what can do with a final panelist." No doubt he meant to say, "We'll see what we can do with a final contestant." John did not seem to notice his error and nobody commented on it. - agent_0042 (2008)

  • Season 6 Episode 20: EPISODE #241

  • GOOF: The announcer makes a slight mistake in Dorothy's introduction, saying, "The popular columnist whose column on Hollywood personalities appears each week - or each month - in 'Motion Picture Magazine,' Miss Dorothy Kilgallen. - Garrison Skunk (2005)

  • Season 6 Episode 13: EPISODE #234

  • The goof was not a technical goof, but an error in thinking by the usually very sharp Fred Allen. While questioning Mystery Guest Herbert Marshall, Fred queries, "Well, something from his voice leads me to ask the question, were you born in this country?" Fred receives a "no" answer from John, because Mr. Marshall was born in England. At the end of the round, however, Fred disputes John's earlier answer, saying, "I asked you if he was born not in this country." John incredulously asks, "Did you?" Fred responds, "I sure did. I don't want to make any trouble, you understand." After a very brief discussion, John graciously says, "I think that was my fault, Fred. If it was messed up, I messed it up." However, the audio track is very clear. Fred is mistaken in his recollection. His question was indeed phrased, "Were you born in this country?" In spite of his slip, everyone was a good sport, although I'm sure John was wishing that this episode had taken place after the invention of the instant replay, and not before. - Lee McIntyre (2005)

  • Season 6 Episode 10: EPISODE #231

  • OCCUPATION OVERLAY GOOF WATCH: For the second contestant, fish counter Mrs. Ruby Warren, the subtitle on her overlay reads "(For U.S. Gov,t)" -- instead of using an apostrophe, the typesetters who handled the occupation overlay screens incorrectly used a comma. - W-B (2008)

  • Season 6 Episode 5: EPISODE #227

  • GOOF: During the first game, after Robert Q. Lewis received a "no," John reported the score as "one down and nine to go" when, in fact, he was flipping the $10 card and should have said "two down and eight to go." John did not make any additional scoring errors and there was no noticeable reaction seen on the program to this minor gaffe. However, to keep John in line with the scoring, handwritten notes (such as "this" down and "this" to go) were written on the back of the cards and are often visible as John flips the cards. This explains why John made no more errors, but it does not explain John's mistake in the first game. The error can only be attributed to lack of attention to the score. - agent_0042 (2008)

  • Season 6 Episode 4: EPISODE #226

  • GOOF: The studio announcer accidently opened this show by reading from the cue sheet of the previous week that had been broadcast in CBS experimental color. More details under the "notes" section. - ymike (2005)

  • Season 6 Episode 1: EPISODE #223

  • GOOF: There was no name plaque for Sal Maglie and Duke Snider. Possibly, John forgot to put it in place. - Suzanne (2005)
