** Besides the "what the secret concerns" clue given before questioning, the earliest episodes would also have the host mention which word the secret begins with, which was almost always "I", which was eventually dropped due to its redundancy.

** Originally, celebrity secrets were actual things about them or that had happened to them (i.e., Boris Karloff's "I'm afraid of mice"). This became both boring and limiting, and the gag/stunt secrets quickly evolved.[[note]]Allan Sherman later admitted that those secrets, including Karloff's, were made up by the staff, with the celebrities playing along. Their elimination was a good thing, considering the quiz scandals that would erupt in a few years.[[/note]]

* WilliamTelling: On one [[BroadcastLive live]] episode, [[TheTonightShow Johnny Carson]]'s secret was that he would shoot an apple atop host Garry Moore's head. He did it too...with Moore safely behind a sheet of pexiglass.

* RealSongThemeTune: The 1952-1961 theme was "Plink, Plank, Plunk" by Leroy Anderson. It was succeeded in 1961-1962 by an upbeat arrangement of the "Theme from ''A Summer Place''" before being replaced by an original tune from musical director Norman Paris for the rest of the original run. Steve Allen's theme song, "This Could Be the Start of Something", was used as the theme for the 1972-1973 syndicated revival.

* ADayInTheLimelight: Panel regulars Bill Cullen, Henry Morgan, and Betsy Palmer each got a chance to guest host during Garry Moore's frequent boating vacations. While Bill and Betsy only got to host once and twice respectively, Henry ended up being the most frequent substitute host and, from late 1961 until the end of the original run, was the only one in that position.
