Can you identify 12 classic sitcoms from their trippy dream sequences alone?

Try not to lose any sleep over your answers.

Sitcoms can get surreal. It's a tried-and-true trope. When you want to break out of the mold, get weird, and dive a little deeper into the subconscious of characters, you write a dream sequence.

The dream sequence has been a part of television comedy for ages, from Lucy's visions of begging for money with Little Ricky to Community's musical episode. Heck, the entire Newhart series was technically a dream sequence of Dr. Bob Hartley, as revealed by the shocking, legendary finale.

So, we dug up a dozen dazzling dream sequences from sitcoms in the '60s, '70s, '80s and '90s. Can you name the shows by a single striking frame?

Good luck!
