    The 25th anniversary special is available for viewing on a web site and also at the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills. It includes a snippet that is missing from a GSN rerun because Gil Fates and his three colleagues never put it back in the kinescope for the live telecast of July 7, 1963. Woody Allen, making his first appearance as a guest panelist, can be heard asking contestant Jeanette Kraus, a Chicago resident who sells lobsters, if her product is "rich and, um, so sumptuous as to make one, say, nauseated if eaten like at 6:00 in the morning." The anniversary special does not include a snippet that is lost: Dorothy Kilgallen's introduction of Allen toward the beginning of the same telecast. As she arrives at the panelists' desk, the kinescope film jumps ahead to Allen saying that he "recently" had a wet dream about Arlene Francis whom he is introducing.
