* FunnyMoments: The "panel innocently asking questions" format, combined with contestants like "A. Harem" (August 4, 1953), typically meant HilarityEnsues. ''Series/GameShowMomentsGoneBananas'' showed clips of "A. Mattress" (October 1, 1952) and "A. Maid" (March 17, 1953), which went pretty much in the same direction.
* MomentOfAwesome: Any contestant who stumped the (especially four-member) panel through the panel's running out of questions. Overlapped with FunnyMoments on occasion, when the panel went into desperation mode and started asking off-the-wall questions when their "stock" began getting low.
** Inversely, panelists who got the right answer through said off-the-wall questions.
* ReplacementScrappy: The hosts in Season 4, or at least Clifton Fadiman as he had to follow Lewis, James, '''and''' the comedic radio duo.
* SeasonalRot: Season 4.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: "Secret Wish", the panel expansion, and "Celebrity Relatives" could all qualify.
