Storyline

While doing a run-through of a sketch for the Alan Brady Show, Rob smashes what he thinks is a breakaway violin over his head. Instead, it's a real violin, and the blow from the instrument brings on a bout of temporary amnesia, causing Rob to wind up at a party in Red Hook, New Jersey, with no memory of his real identity.

Trivia

The inspiration for this show, in which Rob gets temporary amnesia from a blow on the head and ends up at a party in New Jersey, came from a real-life event involving Dick Van Dyke's father, Cookie Van Dyke. According to the younger Van Dyke, his father was at a Fourth of July party when he dived into his son's pool and hit his head on the side while emerging from the water. His father appeared unharmed, but then got dressed and drove 200 miles to Palm Springs where he ended up at another backyard party - this time with a group of complete strangers. See more »
