** John Daly, the host of ''Series/WhatsMyLine'', made a couple of appearances where he had the panelists guess historical events from newspaper quotes and headlines. Panelist Arlene Francis also made a few appearances. Going the other way, the then-current panel of ''I've Got a Secret'' (Bill Cullen, Faye Emerson, Jayne Meadows and Henry Morgan) appeared as Mystery Guests on the April 1, 1956 episode of ''What's My Line?''
** On January 18, 1965, the panel traded places with the ''Series/ToTellTheTruth'' panel (Tom Poston, Peggy Cass, Orson Bean, Kitty Carlisle); both shows aired Monday nights on CBS at the time.

* ChristmasEpisode: A regular tradition during the original series. One year, {{GSN}} used all 15 of a week's ''Black And White Overnite'' slots to show them.

Added DiffLines:

* CutenessProximity: One guest was a toddler whose secret was that he'd eaten his brother's insect collection; the brothers both appeared on the show, with the elder brother answering the questions while the younger brother waved, smiled, blew bubbles and did other endearing toddler things which went to insidious work on the panelists, who had increasing difficulty maintaining focus. The final panelist was so distracted he didn't get any questions in at all before his buzzer went.


Added DiffLines:

* EntertaininglyWrong: During a round where the guest's secret involved an insect collection, one of the panelists made an innocent remark about catching flies (a slang term for having a vacant, open-mouthed expression). The next panelist up, having realized from the audience's reaction that the expression was somehow significant, asked if the secret had anything to do with... baseball?

* ChewToy: If the crew had something sneaky planned, the "victim" was most likely Henry Morgan. For example, he would be sent on an exotic trip (which started the moment the live broadcast ended) such as a safari in Africa, or working as a hired hand on Roy Rogers' Dude Ranch. Or carrying a spear in that night's production in the Metropolitan Opera. Or the fact that he was going to play Santa for some needy kids...or [[TopCat Arnold Stang's]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DIZ0G5MrAfc secret on a Halloween episode that he used Henry's actual bedsheets for the ghost costume he's wearing.]]

* 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.

** 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.
