8 out of 12. What was the Leave it to Beaver Christmas episode? I don't remember.

I don't either, I don't think it had one, that's one of the ones I missed. Every year I looked through the episodes and couldn't find one.

Could you imagine a Kolchak: The Night Stalker Christmas episode?
Todd scp 17 months ago
Yeah that was an easy one. What would happen. Noone gets murdered until the day after?

10 out of 12. Not bad, considering they were shows I don't watch.

I love those Christmas episodes. Happy Days had 3, Green Acres had 1, It's hard to believe that Andy Griffith only had one and Gomer Pyle had none. The Twilight Zone had a pretty good one as well. The Brady Bunch had a memorable one as well. The Monkee's had a good one but I don't remember the Munsters having one. Which are your favorites?

Twilight Zone actually had three Christmas episodes although in one you didn't know it was Christmas until the end and the third was broadcast as the last episode of the season in June.

Wait a second. The "Werewolf" episode of Kolchak takes place on a Christmas singles cruise. It also features an office Christmas party (with "Jingle Bells" sung during it) before Carl takes Vincenzzo's place on the cruise. If the LITB's haircut is considered an official Christmas ep, then this should as well IMO.

Considering that MeTV did a holiday promo with scenes from it, I wholeheartedly agree!

9/12 Golllllly I'm surprised that Gomer Pyle didn't have a Christmas episode
Moverfan Riff60 13 months ago
I think Gomer Pyle didn't have holiday episodes for the same reason Hogan's Heroes episodes were all set during the winter...except for the occasional two-parter, you could run 'em in any order you damn well pleased.

Petticoat Junction had two Christmas episodes one was a colorized version of an original episode with some changes The most notable was spoiler alert the ending which was left in Black and white.
Wiseguy70005 vinman63 17 months ago
It wasn't colorized, it was filmed in color.
vinman63 Wiseguy70005 17 months ago
Thanks I meant filmed in color not sure why they didn't redo the last scene in color.

There's an episode of Diagnosis: Murder (don't ask me which one) where Dick Van Dyke, as Mark Sloan, goes to a radio station and looks through the window into the booth at...Dick Van Dyke as Rob Petrie, who's on the air. The entire episode is in color, exceot for that clip from The Dick Van Dyke Show. (No, they didn't ply the Twilight Zone theme...but it would have been appropriate!)

A lot of excellent actors should have had their own Sitcoms:
Roger And Chuck starring Ted McGinley
The BAG SHOW STARRING NEIL J SCHWARTZ AS BAG ZOMBROSKI
WALLY AND RICK Starring Skip Young as WALLY PLUMSTEAD and Rick Nelson.
MILWAUKEE GUYS STARRING
MOOSE BARRY GREENBERG
EUGENE BELVIN DENIS MANDEL
MELVIN BELVIN SCOTT BERNSTEIN
Also I wish that Dawn Wells (MARY
ANN ON GILLIGAN'S ISLAND) HAD.
Her own sitcom in the 1960s called
MY MARY ANN
AND ROY STUART AS CPL BOYLE IN
CPL. BOYLE USMC A SPIN OFF OF
GOMER PYLE USMC.
THE LOU ANN POOVIE SHOW STARRING ELIZABETH MacRAE AS
LOU ANN POOVIE.
ROGER AND CHUCK WOULD HAVE
BEEN S GREAT SPINOFF OF HAPPY
DAYS WITH Ted McGinley as Roger
Phillips and Randolph Roberts as
Chuck Cunningham.

11/12. I can’t remember The Beaver Christmas episode.
MBW tootsieg 18 months ago
Guess they are referring to the "haircut" episode, Beaver gave himself a haircut He was in the school Christmas pageant.
tootsieg MBW 18 months ago
Okay. Thank you!

It really was NOT a Christmas episode in any traditional sense. I don't count it as one. And too bad, because LITB was tailor made for a good Christmas episode.
Shemp bereang 17 months ago
I totally agree.

Now I've got Ray Stevens playing in my head.

12/12 - What happened to the MASH Christmas question? You had a picture of Hawkeye at the beginning of the quiz, but no question!!!? Yes there was a Christmas episode of MASH, by the way!!

There were three Christmas episodes of M*A*S*H, one for each year of the war, plus a "day after Christmas" episode.

11/12 there was a mamas family question

What was wrong with the Stooges?
JHP Wiseguy70005 17 months ago
the ep was chopped to hell - the 1st thing I saw was them already in the bullring - it was whoever started that ep

believe me I know that ep as good as any stooge fan

That is called a really short Stooges short. Due to commercials ME-TV usually shows 2-full shorts & one edited short per hour. Not like when we were kids & get 3-unedited shorts per hour. Where I grew up, we got 1 & a half episodes per day. The next day we got the other half & a full short. ME-TV also edits for content so as not to offend modern fans. We got every short unedited back in the 50s/60s.

LITB never had any episodes about holidays, (which was always a disappointment to me). The "haircut" one aired in October & really was not about Christmas.
