......'The Dick Van Dyke Show' [ colorized though ]....they previously aired colorized episodes of 'I Love Lucy' during the holidays and last May’s sweep.....


CBS To Air ‘Dick Van Dyke Show’ Colorized Classic Episodes During Holiday Frame

....The Dick Van Dyke Show is coming back to TV in living color. CBS, which colorized episodes of I Love Lucy during the holidays and last May’s sweep, is using the same strategy with the classic 1960s series.

The episodes “That’s My Boy??” and “Coast to Coast Big Mouth” will air back-to-back beginning at 8 PM on Sunday, December 11 on CBS.

The Emmy-winning series starred Dick Van Dyke and Mary Tyler Moore as television comedy writer Rob and his wife Laura Petrie; Larry Matthews as their son Ritchie; Morey Amsterdam and Rose Marie as Buddy Sorrell and Sally Rogers, co-writers on the fictional “The Alan Brady Show,” Carl Reiner as Alan Brady; Richard Deacon as Mel Cooley; Jerry Paris as Dr. Jerry Helper; and Ann Morgan Guilbert as Millie Krumbermacher Helper.

The Dick Van Dyke Show is originally aired on CBS from Oct. 3, 1961, through June 1, 1966, finishing in the Nielsen Top 10 in three of its five seasons, peaking at #3 during the 1963-1964 season. The show received 15 total primetime Emmy Awards, including three Emmys for Dick Van Dyke, five for Carl Reiner and two for Mary Tyler Moore.

All TV would be much better if all they did was replay the old shows. Nothing newer than 1968! That's the year I was in bootcamp, soon left for Vietnam, and when I returned two years later, WOW, I couldn't believe how vulgar and just bad television had gotten in two years! Dumbing down of culture. Bring back the old stuff, there was some great entertainment way back.

....like old shows.....some bring back great memories.....also good way to see how certain shows hold up while others don't.....but opposed to watching any 'colorized' versions of anything......rather watch the original black&white......

Tele-Vision?

Is that that newfangled radio with pitchers? Don't waste your head on that, you need to use your imagination, pipsqueak!

Agree about preferring the black & white. Colorization is an odd idea to me.

Certain films should remain in original black and white. I have no problem with colorization of an old sitcom. I'll look forward to Mary and Rob and Sally and Buddy in living color.

Such a great show! I really enjoyed it as a kid. Dick Van Dyke is a favorite actor of mine anyhoo.I also had a crush on MTM, so that was just one more incentive to watch.

The two main characters are still alive. Why not do a remake or, at least, a one hour special. But I suppose neither actor needs the $$$.

I was wondering if the colors will make MTM's sweaters "pop".

Better hurry. Dick's still kicking--literally--but he'll be 91 in December.
