[show]For several years, all of the members of the "Rat Pack," with the exception of ring leader Frank Sinatra, appeared as mystery guests on the show. In fact, three of the five members, Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop, not only appeared as mystery guests, but also served on the panel as well. Sinatra didn't appear on the show until the November 27, 1966 broadcast when he appeared as a mystery guest during the first game and then he moved to a seat on the panel. It was the only instance in which someone did that. Sinatra appeared on the show a year and a couple of weeks after the death of panelist Dorothy Kilgallen, with whom he had feuded for many years. The feud did not prevent his daughter Nancy Sinatra from appearing as a mystery guest on a night when Kilgallen was there. The two women shook hands on the air but did not say anything to each other.
- First show to air on Sunday, and the first to air on a weekly basis.
- To celebrate that the telecast took place on Easter Sunday night, the panel wore bunny masks, complete with ears and whiskers, in place of their usual blindfolds for the Mystery Guest segment.
