Spring is springing everywhere, and when I came across this old episode of the "I've Got A Secret" TV game show from approximately ONE MILLION B.C., I knew I wanted to share it with you. A little info first, if you aren't familiar: "I've Got A Secret" was a long-running game show (1952-1967) on CBS-TV. It was essentially the same premise as "What's My Line?" -- a panel of celebrity guests tried to guess what someone's weird secret or occupation was and the longer the guessing went on, the more cash the subject got (up to EIGHTY WHOLE BUCKS!!!). There were no blinking lights or brapping buzzers or loud theme music bits; it was all rather genteel and low-key, with an air of bemusement. I always liked the show because of its combination of weirdness and sweetness and the slightly-awkward interactions between the stuffy panel members and the regular folks who would nervously try to answer their questions. And sometimes you would see cool stuff, like on this particular episode with an Easter theme and all-animal subjects...so marvel, won't you, at the World's Largest Bunny (and lots and lots of Winston cigarettes)....
