He strolls down to the studio, meeting the members of his cast on the way. “Live” from Hollywood.

In 1954, “Father Knows Best”, TV Comedy; debut on CBS, began on radio in 1949. For Jim Anderson (Robert Young) and family, it was a made-for-TV marriage of over eight wonderful years. Then it made the move to NBC in 1956.

In 1960, “The Andy Griffith Show Opening Credits”! First you hear the folksy whistle of the theme song. And down this backcountry dirt path come Sheriff Andy Taylor and his son, Opie, toting their fishing rods. Opie stops to skim a rock and Andy calls to him. The boy runs to his father not out of fear, but because he likes being with his dad — and who wouldnʹt? Note that Andyʹs wearing his uniform. Either itʹs before work or after…or maybe Andy has just decided to leave the town in the jittery hands of Barney Fife. Through the turbulent '60s — the years of assassinations, social upheaval, and foreign wars — that serene opening offered a gracious invitation to Americaʹs favorite rusticom. Was this nirvana or Mayberry?

In 1966, “Gilliganʹs Island” In “The Producer,” Hollywood deal-maker Harold Hecuba (Phil Silvers) is looking for talent in “out-of-the-way places” when his plane crashes on our favorite tropical isle. To impress the impresario, the castaways mount a musical version of “Hamlet” with Gilligan (Bob Denver) in the title roll. It ainʹt Shakespeare, but it does get the producerʹs attention. He quickly rechristens it “Harold Hecubaʹs Hamlet” and swipes all the singing parts for himself (a quicksilver bit of shtick for Silvers, above, with cast). At the end of this inventive episode, Hecuba steals away — and steals the idea — leaving a sadder but wiser Gilligan to pronounce the moral: “Well, thatʹs showbiz.”

In 1969, In a Brady Bunch episode called “Dear Libby”, The six kids believe theyʹre breaking up their parentsʹ new marriage.
