Did You Know?


Carl Reiner wrote an episode in which Jenny was to walk in on Dick and Jenny having sex. When CBS refused to air the episode, Reiner protested by stating he would never work with CBS again after the third season. But Reiner returned to CBS in 1981 to appear in Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color: Walt Disney: One Man's Dream (1981) and Skokie (1981). The episode aired in syndicated reruns. See more »

The House Was Fantastic!
28 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

No matter how crazy this sounds, while this show was on the air, it was one of my favorite shows! I found this show very entertaining, I found it enjoyable to watch, and, I even love the reruns, and why? The House!.. That house in Phoenix was absolutely spectacular! The sofa was second to none, the staircase was the most beautiful informal staircase on the face of the Earth! It is one of those homes that exudes a comfortable American affluence.. This house was so inviting for you to just sit around in it and eat a dinner comprised of 40 pounds of Prime Rib with Baked Alaska for dessert! The adobe fireplace was so innovative, and, I love the concept of a Master Bedroom on the main level of the house!The Sunken Living Room that had several conversation areas, and light colored walls which were so avant garde for the early seventies!The house in California during the last season of the show was nice, especially the open staircase, not nearly as breathtaking as the Phoenix one though! Dick Van Dyke's original show had a house in Connecticut which was very open and executive looking, however, it was too linked to the motif of early sixties decor! Yes, interior design can make all the difference in the world! I loved Dick Van Dyke's second show "The New Dick Van Dyke Show' and, it was all because of the house! That house in Phoenix was absolutely magnificent!
