"The Nut House!!" was video-taped in black and white in spite of the fact the CBS Hollywood Television City facility had color camera equipment moth-balled in the hall-way storage wings, the scenic drop storage rack area adjacent the studios in house drapery department. Although CBS had the capability to video-tape color programs since the initial installation in 1955, most CBS network color televised-product was performed in Burbank at the NBC Television Studio facility. The initial production charge and expense to unwrap the color cameras including technical mechanics to video-tape in color for a television pilot was forfeited usually for a pilot presentation. ABC's Hollywood-Vine Studio Theatre Stage, converted from black and white to color during the summer of 1965, the famous musical-variety series "The Hollywood Palace" was finally televised in full color transmission in September 1965. This ABC Network move into color broadcasting forced CBS Television City to purchase, install and convert their Hollywood facility into a new complete color television transmission broadcasting agency. The black and white CBS Network transmission era was eventually phased out replaced with film and video tape full color programing and advertising commercials. See more
