Trivia

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 »

This was indeed a classic sitcom unfortunately forgotten
9 April 2004 | by (Chapel Hill,North Carolina) – See all my reviews

Dick Van Dyke at the time this new sitcom came along,was still at the height of his fame,but during the early 1970's he made a second sitcom which was very good and truly outstanding that nowadays is easily forgotten and likewise faded into our memories. Only this time around, he would portrayed a character that was about the same but likewise totally different. You see that in "The New Dick Van Dyke Show",the character would be totally different from the original cache that occurred in his famous 1960's sitcom series,but with a brand new twist. However actors,Dick Van Dyke and Hope Lange(From the TV Series,"The Ghost And Mrs. Muir"),are likeable stalwarts of two different sitcoms which made and impression of impaccable chemistry as a winning team and with pretty good results which gave the green light at Van Dyke's former employer,CBS-TV the go-ahead with this series which only lasted four seasons,1971-1975. Here,there are no particularly memorable plots,but you really believed them as a modern day married couple living in suburban America with a teenage daughter. Here Dick Van Dyke portrays,Rob Preston,a advertising executive working for a huge company where his wife is a stay at home suburban housewife that looks after the young teenage daughter,who is in high school. The writers wanted to make a more modern series since this came out after all in the era of classic 70's family oriented/situation comedy shows:"All In The Family", "The Brady Bunch","The Waltons","The Bob Newhart Show","Maude",and "Mary Tyler Moore".

However,the show was produced by Saul Turteltaub and Bernie Orenstein,who were the producers of a ton of vintage 70's shows like "Sanford and Son","Good Times","The Jeffersons",and "What's Happening!" and so much more,were also two of the writers along with Sheldon Leonard on the 1960's original "Dick Van Dyke Show" series,along with the show's creator and executive producer Carl Reiner,who was executive in charge of production of this series. Not to mention the superb writing and directing talents of veteran directors Jay Sandrich,Jerry Paris,Alan Rafkin,Don Weis,and Peter Baldwin(from TV's "The Bob Newhart Show"). This show also provided a great cast including original cast members from Van Dyke's 1960's sitcom as either regulars or supporting cast members like Rose Marie,and Richard Deacon along with a supporting cast of greats:Marty Brill,Richard Dawson,David Doyle,and Nancy Dussault and in some episodes Carl Reiner. Hilarious? Yep,lots of laughs which Dick Van Dyke himself supplying the mischief in every episode. Hope Lange is excellent here,but you can tell that she is no Mary Tyler Moore here,but she gives that ultimate spark of chemistry within the two characters. Overall,a great series that is unfortunably forgotten and faded into our memories.
