Can you name these kooky 1960s sitcoms by their outlandish concepts?

Talking cars, gorgeous androids and time-traveling astronauts!

The 1960s were a golden era for weird, wacky and wonderful sitcoms. We could explain a few with a mere sentence and you would get immediately to what we were referring. 

For example: Seven people are trapped on a deserted isle. That's Gilligan's Island, of course. A 2,000-year-old genie falls in love with an astronaut. Yep, that's I Dream of Jeannie. A nun who can fly? The Flying Nun, duh. It says it right there in a title. The decade also gave us Mister Ed, My Favorite Martian, Bewitched and… well, you'll see.

Below, we will briefly describe actual sitcoms that aired in the Sixties. One of the titles will be correct. The other two… well, we completely made them up. See if you can sniff out the real title.
  1. She puts the "car" in "reincarnation"! A lawyer buys an old automobile that happens to possess his dead mother's soul. Yep, the car talks.
  2. A psychiatrist is given a gorgeous android, as its creator does not want her to fall into the hands of the military.

  3. A Hollywood talent agent dresses as a hippie for a photo shot. He is mistaken for a woman and heads to England where he poses in drag as a female model.

  4. It's like the Fugitive, but funny! An everyday, ordinary guy overhears a mob conversation in a steam bath. Now, he escapes from town to town as "The Syndicate" tries to kill him.

  5. From the creator of Gilligan's Island, it's the tale of two astronauts who travel back in time to live with cavemen.

  6. A man goes to seek Alaskan gold in 1900. After being buried and frozen under an avalanche, he awakens 67 years later, without aging a day. He moves in with his elderly son.

Well done, matey! You had your eye on the correct answers like a phantom sea captain with a telescope.
