Trivia / The NBC Mystery Movie

  • MAD Magazine's satires were titled Clodumbo, MacVillian & Strife, McClown and Queezy, M.E. (although the latter came along when it was an hour-long show).
  • The Other Darrin: In the pilot for The Snoop Sisters their chauffeur Barney and their friend on the force Lt. Ostrowski were played by Art Carney and Lawrence Pressman respectively; for the series Lou Antonio and Bert Convy took over those roles. This wasn't the only such example for the strand - see below.
  • Playing Against Type: Bert Convy as a police officer- everybody else knows him from various game shows (Tattletales in the 70s, Super Password and Win, Lose or Draw in the 80s (the last one he co-produced with Burt Reynolds, and aired on NBC- though the NBC version didn't have him hosting)).
    • Stuart Margolin played Lanigan's Rabbi in the pilot for said show, but his commitments to being Angel in The Rockford Files precluded any involvement in the series.
