Did You Know?


The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961) had Rob and Laura sleeping in twin beds because the censors did not allow couples on television to sleep in the same bed back then. (An exception was Ozzie and Harriet Nelson in "The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet" TV series. This couple was married in real life.) In this special, Rob mentions that he and Laura have a king size bed. See more »

Crazy Credits

The late Richard Deacon is the only major cast member to not receive screen credit during the opening sequence, though he (along with now-deceased producers Danny Thomas and Sheldon Leonard ) does receive special acknowledgment at the end of the show. See more »

As good as it could be...
6 August 2005 | by (Hawaii) – See all my reviews

I must disagree with one user's review. Of course the program doesn't have the same magic as the original Dick Van Dyke Show. But common, that was 40 years ago. I have to give them credit for their efforts. I think it's wonderful that they were able to get all of the surviving members of the cast together, and I did find several of the jokes, and most of the story line very funny. As far as Rose Marie "not looking good", what do you expect?! She's in her 80's now! I just think it's difficult for us to see characters 40 years older, especially since we're all so familiar with how they looked and acted in their youth and prime. However as far as I'm concerned, the show was probably as good as it could be considering how much time has passed. I do have to admit however, that Mary Tyler Moore looked unnaturally much younger than the rest of the cast, which can be attributed to the amount of (admitted) plastic surgery she has had.
