Trivia

"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 »

Spirited Attempt Has Its Moments . . .
21 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

Considered in the context of its era (early 60s), this vigorous effort by Jay Ward is certainly different and mildly zany. Ward was to some degree channeling Olsen & Johnson in the wackiness he was attempting. The cast members throw themselves into it whole-heartedly, and almost make it work. The fact that it was a pilot excuses its awkwardness--the ensemble still had to develop its chemistry. Yes, some skits go on too long, others don't have a satisfying payoff; but nevertheless it rivets the attention and makes for an entertaining half hour. (By the way, contrary to what one might read elsewhere, the end credits for the players are not on hand-held pieces of paper: the participants parade down the studio audience aisle Olsen & Johnson-like bearing "striker-type" signs indicating their names.) The Falcon monologue, delivered in hilarious deadpan, redeems the shortcomings of the rest. Watch this show with the eyes and entertainment-experience of the 1950s and early 1960s: The program is certainly worth seeing once, and maybe once again to see what one missed the first time.
