Beginning with this special, the panels of the Big Doors are replaced with the panels from the syndicated nighttime Davidson version, which have been painted with very slightly altered versions of the daytime patterns; the most notable difference is the significant sharpening of the innermost upper curves on Door #2. This change carries over to the daytime show when the 25th season began. See more
For the first 14 years, our announcer on "The Price is Right" was the immencely popular Johnny Olson. Johnny was a splendid announcer and he was a very funny man. All of us loved Johnny, and we were broken-hearted when we lost him. At that sad time in our lives, we were most fortunate to find the man standing right there at his podium, Rod Roddy.
