Mother's Deadly Helper actually was in 1973. Casey played a small part here as a talk show host.
On Steal Now, Pay Later, this was the episode in which Casey took a few weeks off in late June and early July of 1974, when they had the made up countdown. In this show, Casey plays a much bigger role as a Store Manager buying stolen goods from a mobster. He did a great job. Too bad he didn't act in more Five-O shows.

If you're able to access MeTV, the episode "Mother's Deadly Helper" will air on Monday, March 5. Here's a link with program details. www.imdb.com/title/tt0598094/
The first-time airing for this show was in February 1974. Since MeTV is airing the series in chronological order as it originally was broadcast, the second of two Hawaii-Five-O programs starring Casey (from October 1974) will likely be seen some time later in March.
Watched this whole series on Netflix back when it was on there. It was extremely odd after all the years knowing him as the countdown host seeing him play a television role as someone else. I know he did voices and all for cartoons but there was something about SEEING him in a different role that made it a little strange.
Someone posted a clip of Casey on "Hawaii Five-O" that I hadn't seen before. It only has eight views as of today and was posted on January 30. It may be from a different episode that has been posted on YouTube for a few years:
