* HeyItsThatGuy / RetroactiveRecognition:
** To put it simply, anybody ''with a pulse'' from 1967 to 1978 will have guest-starred on the show.
** Hell, even some of ''the audience members'' were (and are) recognizable. Modern viewers will likely find ''[[TheSilenceOfTheLambs Hannibal Lecter]]'' being in the audience rather hilarious.

* TheUnperson: Sort of. The fact that Dick Van Dyke was an actual cast member during the last years (replacing Harvey Korman) is rarely brought up in documentaries or behind the scenes specials, and said episodes rarely air in syndication. Mainly because many people felt those episodes [[SeasonalRot weren't very good]], and that Dyke had no real chemistry with Carol, Tim, or Vicky. Even Dyke himself [[OldShame looks back at his time on the show with regret and embarrassment.]] On the other hand, Dyke does remain good friends with Burnett.
