The Dick Van Dyke Show

The Dick Van Dyke Show

A sitcom about a TV writer doing his best to juggle the responsibilities of life, both at work and at home. Created by Carl Reiner and starred Dick Van Dyke and Mary Tyler Moore. Reiner based the main character of Rob Petrie on himself and the Alan Brady character on his former boss Sid Caesar. Many of the show's plots were inspired by Reiner's experiences as a writer for Your Show of Shows.

Dick Van Dyke won three Emmy's for the role and Mary Tyler Moore won two of her own playing Dick's irascible, Capri pants-wearing wife, Laura. The series was a launching pad for a slew of legendary comedians and artists, from director Garry Marshall and actress Ross Marie to comedians Jerry Farr and Don Rickles.
