Video Rating: 4 / five
One of the best tv shows ever to have graced the airwaves!
Oh classic tv, how ive missed you.
Dick always talked like his nose was stopped up.
@dhucke4assembly That sounds like a great episode,what is it called ?
Marry Tyler Moore=MILF
never seen a better ending in a tv show
Nothing on television today can come close to classics like this. Give me the Munsters, Dick Van Dyke, Green Acres, Mr. Ed, I love Lucy, Sanford, etc anyday.
@kurtb8474 true that! His voice got lower… and his hair whiter… thats it!
@RosesNightengales I think he has aged really well too, after seeing him in some recent interviews w/ Jay Leno and Rachael Ray to promote his new book.
Isn’t it amazing that we had sitcoms back then that didn’t involve sex, violence, profanity and they were actually funny……….
@thatswhatshessaid Yeah same here! After watching them on Rachael Ray thought I would take a look and it’s beyond my expectations. There are some really great witty lines and I just love watching retro shows and am fascinated with life in those “good ol’ days” : D Will continue watching more episodes for sure.
– Also, don’t you think Dick and Mary make such a cute couple? XD It’s so much fun watching them two act together
The bit at 20:54 is part of classic TV comedy history.
Just saw Mr. Van Dyke on Jay Leno the other night. He is 85 years old and aside from the wrinkles, white hair and beard, there’s no difference. He sang “Supercalif…’ whatever, and danced a little. Age has had very little affect on him.
Awww I used to love watching them years back, I still love them today!! Thanks for sharing! Entertainment at it’s cleanest and funniest!
Now that’s quality entertainment. Not like the crap they put on today.
I saw Dick and Mary on the Rachael Ray show today and decided to check this out! it’s funny, and i can’t wait to watch more
I can’t believe I’ve never watched this before…..I feel deprived! I MUST REMEDY THIS!
HELP!!! What episode does is it where Rob and Laura are shouting and she says “Why are you shouting?”
He replies, “I’m not shouting at you, you’re just in the way”
I cannot place the episode!!
The talent today is nowhere close to the way it was -back then. That includes writing and performing.
@RosesNightengales mary tyler moore was good looking also
To everyone who says Dick Van Dyke WAS funny, this show WAS a classic, Dick Van Dyke WAS handsome. I just have 1 thing to say to you… “WAS” nothing!!!! All those things still are true!!!!!!!
I’m 19yrs old and I like this show better than the other things that kids my age are watching and I’m dang proud to say that!! ♥
50 Years, and still very entertaining.
I love it! Something clean and unadulterated for those of us with moral sense.
@8bittrauma More like subtly sensual. They used to do that in TV & film, when writing and acting were more crafted and less formulaic.
