CBS to Air Two Colorized 'Dick Van Dyke Show' Episodes on Sunday

CBS will air two digitally colorized episodes of the 1960's sitcom "The Dick Van Dyke Show" on Sunday, two season openers from its five-year run that will follow "60 Minutes."

The first episode — "That’s My Boy??" — opened the third year in September 1963, The Los Angeles Times reports.

In it, Rob Petrie, played by Van Dyke, reflects on when he believed that he and his wife — Laura, played by Mary Tyler Moore — brought home the wrong baby from the hospital.

The second is entitled "Coast to Coast Big Mouth."

It opened the fifth season and features Laura telling a national quiz show that Rob's boss, Alan Brady, played by Carl Reiner, wears a toupee.

The show, which aired from 1961 to 1966, was shot in black and white. It won 14 Emmy Awards and remains in syndication.

Reiner, now 94, who created the program, told the Times that he chose not to film in color because of costs: a $7,000 addition to the budget per episode.

"It would have killed whatever profits we were making from the black-and-white episodes," he said.
