Trivia

Two crew members' birth-dates: Dick Van Dyke & Rose Marie, their births are unique. Add their month number and day number and they will equal (the last two digits) of their year of birth. Rose Marie: Wednesday, August 15th, 1923. 08 + 15 = 23 (of 1923) and Dick Van Dyke: Sunday, December 13th, 1925, 12 + 13 = 25 (of 1925). 851 days (121 weeks & 4 days) differ among the two births.

Laura Petrie: Yes.
Rob Petrie: Oh sure, what's the fun of telling something if it's not a secret?

Crazy Credits

A third variation on the tripping-on-the-ottoman opening was added in later seasons, wherein Van Dyke neither stumbles over nor skips around it, but trips on a corner attempting to do the latter, and recovers without falling. See more »

Still Funny After All These Years
1 April 2003 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

This was the sitcom that broke the mold when it came to the head of the household actually having a profession and showing him at work. For many years before this show premiered, you would always here about "dad" being at work but you would never hear what kind of work he did. In some cases you would even see them at home all the time (eg. Ozzie Nelson). This was the first show where you got to see the main character interact with his co-workers as well as his family at home. And very often the two would meet, especially in the classic episode "Coast to Coast Blabbermouth" when Laura almost cost Rob his job by revealing that Alan Brady wore a toupee. This show is just as funny today as it was when it first premiered in 1961.
