The easiest one is "A Hard Day's Night" and "Gilligan's Island" from 1964.
What a great year it was overall, but the sadness from that awful 4th Friday in Nov. 1963 still lingered for the first months of 1964.

Seeing this pigeon reminds me of Bert, from Sesame Street. He loves pigeons! He did a song and dance about them called: "Doin' The Pigeon."
That's not a pigeon, that's a dove!

I have an idea for a twist on this quiz: What year did a show switch from b/w-color? Such and such a movie came out the same year this show went from "Shades Of Gray," to "The Wonderful World Of Color." {ie.: The Sound Of Music came out the same year as this show switched to color? Answer: Gilligan's Island, 1965.}
I'd do more, but this was all I could think up right now.
That would be a very clever quiz, not to mention harder than most! You should submit that idea.
It's easy for "My Favorite Martian"; they introduced Uncle Martin's time machine near the end of season two (still in black and white), and every subsequent use of it was in season three (the only season in color). And they used it a *lot* in season three.

A trick one could be the Joey Bishop Show. Started out in black-and-white, switched to color (in the *middle* of a season), then back to black-and-white for its final season (which is also when it changed networks).

7/15 - tough one. Probably only time Twilight Zone and Plan 9 From Outer Space should be mentioned in the same sentence
