Can you guess what shows had these washing machine mishaps?

Try to decipher these sudsy situations!


Since beginning in the 1950s, situation comedies have reused many of the same tropes time and again. One of those familiar scenes involves a load of laundry gone hilariously wrong, usually overflowing with bubbles.

Here are eleven soapy scenarios from classic television. Can you guess which show each of these washing mishaps are from?

It's a wash. Better luck next time!

They were all guesses (except #8) and I only missed #2, 5, 10 and 11.

Another show METV should've included is The Partridge Family. It was a 4th season episode, {Jackie Coogan was playing Shirley's father}. The story was Shirley's parents were fighting {again!} This time about gender roles. Of course Shirley and the kiddies got caught up in it. Keith said something like women need men more to protect them etc. There was a scene in the garage, where Grandpa was doing the laundry, and of course suds were everywhere. Danny & Keith came in and asked how much he used. Grandpa said "2-3 cups." Keith said that's sounds right." Shirley, Laurie and Grandma walk in and Shirley says: "That's only 2-3 cups too much."

4 out of 11. No lie. I not only never had a wash machine go bad or overflow suds but never seen one of these here episodes. I did have a dyer break a belt once so it would not spin dry. Got that fixed finally. What next? What size tires did they have on the family car? I'll watch some but never take notes. I'll still take the quiz and give the grim results.

In the mean time lets liven up the board with some music to get you into Monday in fine fashion.

Thank you & we hope the same for you & your family. We are doing well here but we miss our kids & grandkids. We keep in touch with Skype but it's just not the same. Hopefully, we can visit with them sometime soon. These are such trying times but we are coping well & we'll get through it. Thanks again for the videos you post. They are a welcome journey back in time to those days of great music & great tv. Stay safe!

9 for 11. If I had gotten all 11 I would have to start wondering if there was something wrong with me.
Man, these MeTV boys & girls are really getting down in the weeds with this stuff.
What's next, asking what grades Little Richie got on his 4th grade report card? Listen you
wise guys, don't even think of asking that one, or I'll arrange for you to be subject to watching
