small screen, big laughs
not only did i think this show was funny, but i laughed every time he tripped over the ottoman in the opening credits. that's a lot of stumbling. it must have had to do with that quality of limb that jim carrey also has.
The Dick Van Dyke Show ran from October 3, 1961 until June 1, 1966. believe it or not, the role of 'rob' almost went to johnny carson.
