* FunnyMoments: The "panel innocently asking questions" format, combined with contestants like "A. Harem" (August 4, 1953), typically meant HilarityEnsues. ''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.
