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.
