ABOUT THE SHOW
CBS spent some holiday time with Rob, Laura, Sally, Buddy and Ritchie for a second consecutive year.
The network aired two colorized episodes of the classic sitcom The Dick Van Dyke Show on December 22, 2017.
This year’s special featured the Season 1 episode “ My Blonde-Haired Brunette ,” written by series creator and co-star Carl Reiner, and the third-season “October Eve,” written by Bill Persky and Sam Denoff. Both prominently feature Mary Tyler Moore, who died in January.
“ My Blonde-Haired Brunette ” sees Laura dying her hair blonde when she fears the romance between Rob and her is fading.
In “ October Eve ,” a painting of Laura returns to haunt her when, despite her having posed fully clothed, the artist (played by Reiner) takes the liberty of “undraping” her.
