YMMV / Tattletales

  • Adaptation Displacement: The format used until June 1974 was from the original version of the show, He Said, She Said.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Convy occasionally got the chance to play the game while Gene Rayburn, Bob Barker, Bobby Van, or Jack Narz would take over hosting duties.
  • Growing the Beard: While the "all-Quickies" format is generally considered superior to the original format, there are those who enjoyed hearing the 'tattletale' stories one partner would tell about the other (especially Dick Gautier/Barbara Stuart, whose stories often involved good friend Bert Convy) in the original format.
  • What an Idiot!: One question asked if the husbands thought their wives would rather have dinner with Ted Kennedy, Frank Sinatra or Aristotle Onassis. Gary Collins opted for Kennedy because he thought his wife Mary Ann Mobley would share his Republican values.note
