Trivia

An original concept was used in this series: the end credits rolled over top of a sort of epilogue that tied up the last scene. If you didn't watch the end credits, you would miss the tie-up for what the characters did at fade out and be missing some of the fun. This actually gave an extra minute or so extension - showcasing the genius of the rapid paced editing and score that hallmarked this show. See more »

One of the Best Shows Ever Produced for TV
19 September 2005 | by gcernigliaSee all my reviews

I was a junior in high school when It's a Man's World premiered in 1962. It is a shame that it received so little recognition and so few episodes were made. I think I saw every episode. It is sad to think that they no longer exist. My favorite episode is the one in which Vern decides that he will only tell people the "truth" for an entire day. The result of his decision is that his world descends into total chaos and everyone ends up hating him for telling them the truth.

I agree that the reason for the shows lack of success and untimely demise was that it was a head of its' time. The only modern popular show that comes close to it in terms of overall creativity is Seinfeld.
