[ # ] Which I Love Lucy and The Dick Van Dyke Show episodes is CBS colorizing?
November 5th, 2018 under CBS, Dick Van Dyke


For the last few years, CBS has been colorizing episodes of I Love Lucy and The Dick Van Dyke Show for the holiday season, and this year is no different. Thankfully! Each classic sitcom will get two episodes that will go from drab to fab on Friday, December 14th.

I LOVE LUCY CHRISTMAS SPECIAL (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT)

Featuring two back-to-back episodes of the classic series, the colorized “The Christmas Episode” and newly colorized “Pioneer Women.” “The Christmas Episode” (first presented in black and white on Christmas Eve, 1956), finds the Ricardos and Mertzes decorating Lucy and Ricky’s Christmas tree and reminiscing about how their lives have changed since the arrival of the Ricardos’ son, Little Ricky. In “Pioneer Women” (originally aired March 31, 1952), Lucy and Ethel’s hopes of joining the posh Society Matrons’ League lead to a bet with their husbands over which sex – the men or the women – had it harder living in a bygone era.

THE DICK VAN DYKE SHOW – NOW IN LIVING COLOR! (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT)

The two newly colorized back-to-back episodes of this memorable series were selected by series creator Carl Reiner as two of Dick Van Dyke’s best episodes. In “Where Did I Come From” (first presented on Jan. 3, 1961), 6-year-old Richie asks his parents the inevitable “where did I come from?” question, and they recall the days before his birth. In “Never Bathe on Saturday” (initially presented on March 31, 1965) the Petries’ romantic second honeymoon becomes a disaster when Laura’s toe gets caught in a bath spout.

Normally, I am not a fan of colorization, but CBS does such a great job with these timeless shows that live on in infamy or as we call it syndication. It shows them in a whole new light, a rainbow of colors to be exact.
