Classic sitcom from the early 60's
29 October 2002 | by (Chapel Hill,North Carolina) – See all my reviews

Its amazing that if any if some of the episodes from this series are somewhere on either video cassette or DVD. In all,this was a great series and some of Joey Bishop's deadpan humor and insults intakes were not only funny but they were classics. But this is what gets me about this classic show of the early 1960's......

"The Joey Bishop Show",ran on two networks,NBC and CBS from 1961-65. His run on NBC-TV(B&W episodes:1961-62;color episodes: 1962-64),and his run on CBS-TV(B&W episodes:1964-65)

1. When Joey's show premiered on the NBC-TV network in 1961,its first season was shown in black and white which had several unknowns in that first season including a teenage looking Marlo Thomas of "That Girl" fame later on(who played one of Joey's next door neighbors or some family member).

2. When the show went to its second season in 1962,the show was regarded to the Peacock Network as "brought you in living color". This was when Joey had co-stars Abby Dalton(as his wife),Corbitt Monica, Joe(of the 3 Stooges fame),and the second and third seasons had some wonderful guest stars including Andy Williams,Jimmy Durante and many others......... NOTE: This was the only situation comedy series that creators Sheldon Leonard and Danny Thomas produced in color for the NBC network(they had also Andy Griffith and Dick Van Dyke and Danny's own show as well,but they were still in black and white,until the color formation would applied to Leonard's episonage drama "I Spy" in 1965 for the NBC network).

3. But when the show went to CBS-TV in the fall of 1964,the show went from wonderful color to drab black and white(why?)and it wasn't the same anymore but still you had Joey's great sense of humor and great guest stars like Peter Lawford,Sammy Davis,Jr.and many others. But it wasn't the same until CBS cancelled the series in 1965(when the Tiffany Network would make the color formation change in the fall of that same year).
