I have been asked by several regular viewers of the channel to put this up to keep interested parties informed on what is going on at Uncle Earl's Classic TV Channel. At present there are more than 25,000 individual programs available including episodic TV shows, specials, and Short Format and Feature length films. There are now search engines like the one above installed on the Front Door Page and the Main Library Page to make finding your favorite shows easier.

      Below is a running tally of my changes to the site, since I created this Update Page on November 26, 2010.

      Updates | Back to the Front Door


      2/16/19 - Today I created a new Frontire Circus library with all twenty-six episodes of the full series. Frontier Circus was a short-lived American Western television series about a traveling circus roaming the American West in the 1880s. Filmed by Revue Productions, the program originally aired on CBS from October 5, 1961 until September 6, 1962. The show featured such veteran Western television and film performers as Chill Wills as "Colonel Kasey Thompson," John Derek as "Ben Travis," Richard Jaeckel as "Scout Tony Gentry," and J. Pat O'Malley as "Duffy". Characters Thompson and Travis were the owners of the Thompson/Travis traveling circus. I discovered series, which I had never heard of, when I was searching for Frontier Doctor episodes last week. Frontier Circus kept popping up and I realized that all of the episodes were available - so here they are! The new library is located in the Western Shows Catalog.

      2/15/19 - Today I added five films too the East Side Kids library. When Samuel Goldwyn turned the play "Dead End" into a 1937 film, he recruited the original tough-talking kids from the play (Leo Gorcey, Huntz Hall, Bobby Jordan, Gabriel Dell, Billy Halop, and Bernard Punsly) to repeat their roles in the film. This led to the making of six other films starring The Dead End (or East Side) Kids. Universal offered a competing series, under the Little Tough Guys brand name, featuring most of the same kids. Some of the same actors also played the Bowery Boys. The added films are:

      Boys of the City (1940)
      Flying Wild (1941)
      Bowery Blitzkrieg (1941)
      Mr. Muggs Steps Out (1943)
      Block Busters (1944)

      2/14/19 - Today I added the last seven available episodes too the Celebrity Roasts library. In 1949, the New York Friars Club held their first roast, with Maurice Chevalier as the guest of honor. The final few seasons of the television show Kraft Music Hall, from 1968 to 1971, included broadcasts of the Friars Club Roast; the celebrities roasted included Johnny Carson, Milton Berle, Jack Benny, Don Rickles, and Jerry Lewis. Dean Martin hosted a series of roasts on television in 1974 as part of the final season of his self-titled variety show. After the show was cancelled, NBC decided to schedule a series of The Dean Martin Celebrity Roast specials from the former MGM Grand Hotel and Casino (now Bally's Las Vegas) in the Ziegfeld Room; these were recorded and aired approximately once every two months from late 1974 to early 1979, and another three were produced in 1984. From 1998 to 2002, the cable channel Comedy Central produced and broadcast the annual roast of the New York Friars Club, with roasts of the celebrities Drew Carey, Jerry Stiller, Rob Reiner, Hugh Hefner, and Chevy Chase. Based on the success of these roasts, Comedy Central began hosting their own roasts on an approximately annual basis, under the name Comedy Central Roast. The first roastee was Denis Leary in 2003. This library includes episodes of several of these programs and is located in the Funny Guys Catalog. The added episodes include those of:

      Ed Sullivan (1958)
      Ronald Reagan (1965)
      Don Rickles (1965)
      William Conrad (1973)
      Hugh Hefner (1973)
      Rowen & Martin (1974)
      Angie Dickinson (1977)

      2/13/19 - Today I added what appear to be the last six available episodes too the Brian Henderson's Bandstand Library. These kept popping up on the Internet Archive for several months but lately they seem to have stopped appearing. Henderson hosted the Australian version of Bandstand from 1958 until 1972. Henderson also holds the record for the longest-serving television news presenter, having read either the weekend or the weeknight news on Sydney station TCN-9 from January 1957 until his retirement in late November 2002. From his first news broadcast in 1957, the tag-line Henderson used to sign off at the end of every newscast was either "...and that's the way it is" or "the way it is", similar to Walter Cronkite. These just keep showing up so I assume there will be more to come. This library is located in the Bandstand Catalog, which can be found in the Musical and Variety Catalog. The added episodes are the last 6 on page 4 of the library.

      2/12/19 - Today I added twenty-eight episodes to the Gilligan's Island Library. In Gilligan's Island (1964–1992) the two-man crew of the charter boat SS Minnow and five passengers on a "three-hour tour" from Honolulu run into a tropical storm and are shipwrecked on an uncharted island somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. Stars: Bob Denver, Alan Hale Jr., Jim Backus, Natalie Schafer, Tina Louise, Russell Johnson and Dawn Wells. I started looking for episodes of this series soon after I first created the site im 2010 with no luck - but have not looked for them in the past few years. The added episodes are all of them on the 3rd library page. I now have all but 3 of the complete series episodes bookmarked, so many more to come! The new libray is located in the Comedy Shows Catalog, and also in the Bob Denver Catalog, which is also available in the Comedy Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      2/11/19 - Tonight I found and posted eight episodes too the Frontier Doctor library. Frontier Doctor (1958-1959) follows the exploits of a small town physician, Dr. Bill Baxter, who rides in a buggy with his black bag and encounters more than his share of trouble as he aids many who cross his path. Operating from the fictitious town of "Rising Springs", Dr. Baxter often finds difficulty with his patients, such as the outlaw Butch Cassidy. Stars: Rex Allen, Mason Alan Dinehart, Chubby Johnson. This library is located in the Western Shows Catalog. The added episodes are:

      Three Wanted Men
      Crooked Circle
      Double Boomerang
      Shotgun Hattie
      Belle of Tennessee
      Bitter Creek Gang
      Woman Who Dared
      Storm Over King City
      Big Gamblers

      2/10/19 - To celebrate the life of Albert Finney, who passed away 3 days ago. I decided to create an Albert Finney Film Library with six of his feature films. Albert Finney Jr. (9 May 1936 – 7 February 2019) was an English actor who worked in film, television and theatre. He attended the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and began to work in the theatre as a Shakespearean actor before attaining prominence on screen in the early 1960s, debuting with The Entertainer (1960), directed by Tony Richardson, who had previously directed him in the theatre. He maintained a successful career in theatre, film and television. The new library is located in the Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      2/9/19 - Today I added eleven episodes too the Burke's Law Library. Burke's Law was an American detective series that aired on ABC from 1963 to 1966. The show starred Gene Barry as Amos Burke, millionaire captain of Los Angeles police homicide division, who was chauffeured around to solve crimes in his 1962 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II. The original series was converted from a detective show to a spy drama, Amos Burke Secret Agent, in its third and final season. The series was revived in 1994–95 on CBS with Barry again playing Burke having returned to detective work. The show shares stylistic similarities with Barry's previous series, Bat Masterson, in which he had played the debonair lawman of the Old West. During the opening credits, as the title flashed onscreen, a woman's voice was heard seductively pronouncing the words "It's Burke's Law!" The title also reflected Burke's habit of dispensing wisdom to his underlings in a professorial manner, e.g.: "Never ask a question unless you already know the answer. Burke's Law." This library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama and also the Gene Barry Catalog, which is located in the Catalog of Stars. The added shows are:
      Paper Dragon
      Surf Broad
      Vaudeville
      Cornelius Gilbert
      Lenore Wingfield
      The Richest Man
      The Tall One
      Merlin The Great
      Who Killed 711?
      Supersleuth
      Davidian Jonas

      2/8/19 - Today I added twenty-five episodes too the My Three Sons Library. My Three Sons (1960-1972) was an American sitcom. The series ran from 1960 to 1965 on ABC, and moved to CBS until the end of its run on April 13, 1972. My Three Sons chronicles the life of widower and aeronautical engineer Steven Douglas (Fred MacMurray) as he raises his three sons. The series originally featured William Frawley as the boys' live-in maternal grandfather and maid, William Michael Francis "Bub" O'Casey. William Demarest, playing Bub's brother, "Charley", replaced Frawley in 1965 due to Frawley's illness. In September 1965, eldest son Mike (Tim Considine) married, and his character was written out of the show. To keep the emphasis on "three sons", original youngest son Chip's friend Ernie was adopted. In the program's later years, Steven Douglas remarried and adopted his new wife's young daughter Dorothy ("Dodie") (Dawn Lyn). This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs. I still have lots of episodes to add, so many more to come! The added episodes are all of them on the last page of the library.

      2/7/19 - Today I found three more episodes to add too my You Ask For It library bringing the total number of episodes up to fourteen. You Asked Eor It was a human interest television show created and hosted by Art Baker. Initially titled The Art Baker Show, the program originally aired on American television between 1950 and 1959. Later versions of the series were seen in 1972, 1981, and 2000. On the show, viewers were asked to send in postcards describing something that they wanted to see on television, such as the reenactment of William Tell shooting an apple off his son's head. (1950 US national archery champion Stan Overby performed the feat, shooting an apple off his assistant's head.) The show was originally broadcast live, so some of the riskier propositions took on added elements of danger and suspense. A segment where animal trainer and stuntman, Reed Parham wrestled a huge, deadly anaconda, for example, nearly became disastrous until assistants interceded with guns drawn, visibly unnerving host Art Baker. This is another of the several libraries that were posted within the first month or so of the site's creation. I have not added anything too it since then (2010) because I never was able to find more then the 11 original episodes until last night. While I was at it I went through the original episodes and re-titled them to reflect the segments included in each episode. This library is located in the News/Documentary/Reality Programs Catalog. The added episodes are:

      Escape Artist
      Hawaiin Cowboys
      Roller Coaster

      2/6/19 - Today I created a new The Invaders library with the pilot and all sixteen episodes of Season 1. The Invaders was an American science fiction television program created by Larry Cohen that aired on ABC for two seasons, from 1967 to 1968. Roy Thinnes stars as David Vincent, who tries to thwart an in-progress alien invasion with doubting officials and public. The series was a Quinn Martin Production. Architect David Vincent accidentally learns of a secret alien invasion already underway and thereafter travels from place to place attempting to foil the aliens' plots and warn a skeptical populace of the danger. As the series progresses Vincent is able to convince a small number of people to help him fight the aliens. The way I learned about this series, which I had never heard of, is that a regular correspndent was going through my Unsold Pilots library and discovered that there actually was a series that came from one of the programs in that library. He let me know about it, then I went out and did some searching and not only discovered that he was correct but also managed to find all 43 series episodes. I still have 27 to go so more to come. The new library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog.

      2/5/19 - Today I added twelve episodes to the Loretta Young Show library. The Loretta Young Show (1953-1961) (originally known as Letter to Loretta) was an American anthology drama television series broadcast on Sunday nights on NBC. The series was hosted by actress Loretta Young, who also played the lead in various episodes. The program began with the premise that each drama was an answer to a question asked in her fan mail. The title was changed to The Loretta Young Show during the first season, and the "letter" concept was dropped altogether at the end of the second season. I have episodes of Seasons 5, 6 and 7 yet to post, so more to come. This library is located in the Television Drama Catalog and Loretta Young Catalog Catalog, which is accessed via the Catalog of Stars. The added shows are:
      Inga II
      Inga III
      Miss Ashley's Demon
      Tension
      Wedding Day
      The Room Next Door
      So Bright a Light
      Legacy
      The Countess
      A Mind of Their Own
      Royal Partners P1
      Royal Partners P2

      2/4/19 - Today I created a new A&E Biograpy Library with twenty episodes to start. Biography began as an early 1960s syndicated television series produced by David Wolper and narrated by a pre-60 Minutes Mike Wallace. It won a Peabody Award, launched Wallace's journalism career, and became a standard in biography films, widely shown in classrooms. After a one-year revival in 1979, the show returned on A&E Networks in 1987. In 1990, A&E began producing new episodes, and expanded the show into a multimedia franchise. By the turn of the century, Biography became A&E's "flagship" program, winning three Emmy Awards, growing from one night per week to seven, and spawning its own cable television channel, several spin-off shows, a website, made-for-TV movies, mini-series, books, audio books, records, and even a board game. The new library is located in the News/Documentary/Reality Programs Catalog.

      2/2/19 - Today I added nine episodes to the Our Miss Brooks Library. Our Miss Brooks was an American sitcom starring Eve Arden as a sardonic high-school English teacher. It began as a radio show broadcast on CBS from 1948 to 1957. When the show was adapted to television (1952–56), it became one of the medium's earliest hits. In 1956, the sitcom was adapted for the big screen in the film of the same name. Our Miss Brooks ran for 130 episodes on television and won an Emmy Award before it was canceled in 1956. This library is located in Eve Arden Catalog. which can be accessed via the Whacky Dames Catalog, and the Catalog of Stars. The added episodes are:

      The Hobby Show
      Mattie Boynton
      The Hurricane
      The Festival
      Suzy Prentiss
      Conklin Detective
      Public Property
      Tea Leaves
      June Bride

      2/1/19 - Today I added the remaining twenty-two available episodes to Season 3 of the Sanford and Son library. Sanford and Son was an American sitcom that ran on the NBC television network from January 14, 1972, to March 25, 1977. It was based on the BBC Television program Steptoe and Son. Known for its edgy racial humor, running gags and catchphrases, the series was adapted by Norman Lear and considered NBC's answer to CBS's All in the Family. Sanford and Son has been hailed as the precursor to many other African American sitcoms. It was a ratings hit throughout its six-season run. While the role of Fred G. Sanford was known for his bigotry and cantankerousness, the role of Lamont Sanford was that of a conscientious peacemaker. At times, both characters would involve themselves in schemes, usually as a means of earning cash quickly in order to pay off their various debts. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas and Comedy Shows Catalogs. I now have all of the Season 5 and 6 episodes yet to post so more to come. The added episodes are all of the Season 3 episodes except Episode 10 - Blind Mellow Jelly.

      1/31/19 - Today I added nine more films to the Blondie library. This completes the library with all 28 of the Blondie films. Blondie is an American comic strip created by cartoonist Chic Young. The comic strip is distributed by King Features Syndicate, and has been published in newspapers since September 8, 1930. The success of the strip, which features the eponymous blonde and her sandwich-loving husband, led to the long-running Blondie film series (1938–1950) and the popular Blondie radio program (1939–1950). There were 28 films based on the comic strip; Columbia Pictures produced them from 1938 to 1943, and popular demand brought them back in 1945. Columbia used the series to showcase many of its talented contract players. Rita Hayworth was featured in Blondie on a Budget; Glenn Ford in Blondie Plays Cupid, Larry Parks and Janet Blair in Blondie Goes to College, Shemp Howard in Blondie Knows Best and Adele Jergens in Blondie's Anniversary. Other roles were taken by Columbia contractees Bruce Bennett, Lloyd Bridges, Ann Doran, Stanley Brown, Richard Fiske, Bud Jamison, Eddie Laughton, John Tyrrell, Alyn Lockwood, Jimmy Lloyd, Gay Nelson and Ross Ford. The regular stars of the films were: Penny Singleton as Blondie Bumstead, Arthur Lake as Dagwood Bumstead, Larry Simms as Alexander "Baby Dumpling" Bumstead and Daisy the dog, who was given her own credit in each of the films. I noticed that these films represent a kind of pre-cursor to the classic TV sit-com series' that began appearing in the 1950s. Each of them is over an hour long. The new library is located in the Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. The added films are:

      Footlight Glamour (1943)
      Leave It To Blondie (1945)
      Blondie Knows Best (1946)
      Blondie in the Dough (1947)
      Blondie's Big Moment (1947)
      Blondie's Secret (1948)
      Blondie's Big Deal (1949)
      Beware of Blondie (1950)
      Blondie's Hero (1950)

      1/30/10 - Today I created a new I Dream of Jeannie Library with nineteen episodes to start. I Dream of Jeannie was an American fantasy sitcom starring Barbara Eden as a 2,000-year-old genie and Larry Hagman as an astronaut who becomes her master, with whom she falls in love and eventually marries. In the pilot episode, "The Lady in the Bottle", astronaut Captain Tony Nelson, United States Air Force, is on a space flight when his one-man capsule Stardust One comes down far from the planned recovery area, near a deserted island in the South Pacific. On the beach, Tony notices a strange bottle that rolls by itself. When he rubs it after removing the stopper, smoke starts shooting out and a Persian-speaking female genie materializes and kisses Tony on the lips, shocking him. Ths series started out in Black & white then went to color episodes in the 2nd season. In this collection the first few episodes are black & white. Starting with Season 1, Episode 10, the rest of them are either colorized or in color originally. The new library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror, the Comedy Shows and the Whacky Dames Catalogs. I have a large number of these bookmarked, so many more to come.

      1/29/19 - Today I added all twenty-four episodes to Season 4 of the The Partridge Family Library, which completes the library with all 96 episodes of the series intact. The Partridge Family was an American musical sitcom starring Shirley Jones and featuring David Cassidy. Jones played a widowed mother, and Cassidy played the oldest of her five children who embarked on a music career. It ran from September 25, 1970, until March 23, 1974, on the ABC network as part of a Friday-night lineup, and had subsequent runs in syndication. The family was loosely based on the real-life musical family The Cowsills, a popular band in the late 1960s and early 1970s. This library is located in the Musical and Variety and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs.

      1/28/19 - Today I added the last sixteen episodes to the Thriller library, which completes the series with all 67 episodes included. Thriller (1960-1962) (also known as Boris Karloff's Thriller) was an American anthology television series that aired on NBC. The show featured host Boris Karloff introducing a mix of macabre horror tales and suspense thrillers. In addition to serving as the host of the series, Karloff also starred in five episodes: "The Prediction," "The Premature Burial," "The Last of the Sommervilles," "Dialogues With Death," and "The Incredible Doctor Markesan. This library is available in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror and the Boris Karloff Catalogs. The added episodes are:
      What Beckoning Ghost?
      Guillotine
      The Premature Burial
      The Weird Tailor
      Grante that she Lye Stille
      Last Of The Sommervilles

      Waxworks
      The Storm
      A Wig For Miss Devore
      The Hollow Watcher

      1/26/19 - To further stoke my seeming obsession with comedy shows lately, today I added thirty clips to the Candid Camera library. The original library had only 2 full episodes, but I recently found a cache of clips from the show and was able to expand the library. Candid Camera was a popular and long running American hidden camera reality television series. Versions of the show appeared on television from 1948 until 2014. Originally created and produced by Allen Funt, it often featured practical jokes, and initially began on radio as The Candid Microphone on June 28, 1947. The show involved concealed cameras filming ordinary people being confronted with unusual situations, sometimes involving trick props, such as a desk with drawers that pop open when one is closed or a car with a hidden extra gas tank. When the joke was revealed, victims would be told the show's catchphrase, "Smile, you're on Candid Camera." This library is located in the News/Documentary/Reality Programs Catalog and also in the Funny Guys Catalog. The added episodes are all of the ones located on the 2nd page of the library.

      1/23/19 - Today I added nine episodes to the You Bet Your Life library. You Bet Your Life was an American comedy quiz series that aired on both radio and television. The original and best-known version was hosted by Groucho Marx of the Marx Brothers, with announcer and assistant George Fenneman. The show debuted on ABC Radio on October 27, 1947, then moved to CBS Radio debuting October 5, 1949, before making the transition to NBC-TV and NBC Radio on October 4, 1950. Because of its simple format, it was possible to broadcast the show simultaneously on radio and television. The last episode in its radio format aired on June 10, 1960. On television, however, the series continued for another year, debuting in its final season on September 22, 1960, and with a new title, The Groucho Show. This library is located in the Game Show Catalog, and can also be accessed via the Marx Brothers library, which can be found in the Funny Guys Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. The added episodes are all of them in the 3rd column of the library.

      1/22/19 - Today I added sixteen videos to the Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In library. Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In (1967–1973) often simply referred to as Laugh-In, was an American sketch comedy television program that ran for 140 episodes from January 22, 1968, to March 12, 1973, on the NBC television network. It was hosted by comedians Dan Rowan and Dick Martin. Laugh-In originally aired as a one-time special on September 9, 1967, and was such a success that it was brought back as a series. The first video is a compilation episode, the rest are individual sketches. The new library is located in the Funny Guys and the Sketch Comedy catalogs. The added episodes are all of them on the second library page.

      1/20/19 - Today I created a new Lenny Bruce library with eleven videos including appearances on the Steve Allen Show, Playboy Penthouse, clips from The World of Lenny Bruce special from 1959, an interview with Nat Hentoff, an episode of E! True Hollywood Story and one full standup routine reportedly from an unknown date a few months before his death in 1966. Leonard Alfred Schneider (October 13, 1925 – August 3, 1966), better known by his stage name Lenny Bruce, was an American stand-up comedian, social critic, and satirist. He was renowned for his open, free-style and critical form of comedy which integrated satire, politics, religion, sex, and vulgarity. His 1964 conviction in an obscenity trial was followed by a posthumous pardon, the first in the history of New York state, in 2003. Bruce is renowned for paving the way for future outspoken counterculture-era comedians, and his trial for obscenity is seen as a landmark for freedom of speech in the United States. On August 3, 1966, a bearded Lenny Bruce was found dead in the bathroom of his Hollywood Hills home. Record producer Phil Spector, a friend of Bruce, bought the negatives of the police photographs "to keep them from the press." The official cause of death was "acute morphine poisoning caused by an overdose. This library can be found in the Funny Guys Catalog. By the way, interest in posting this library came about because I have been watching The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on Amamzon Prime. In it, Bruce is one of Midge Maisel's fellow comics on the New York scene.

      1/19/19 - Today I added the nineteen available episodes of Season 4 to the Barney Miller library. Barney Miller was an American sitcom set in a New York City Police Department police station in Greenwich Village. The series originally was broadcast from January 23, 1975, to May 20, 1982, on ABC. The series takes place almost entirely within the confines of the detectives' squad room and Captain Barney Miller's adjoining office of New York City's fictional 12th Precinct, located in Greenwich Village. A typical episode would feature the detectives of the 12th bringing in several complainants and/or suspects to the squad room. Usually, two or three separate subplots are in a given episode, with different officers dealing with different crimes. Once a year, an episode would feature one or more of the detectives outside of the walls of the precinct, either on a stakeout or at one of their homes. I will continue to expand this library going forward. This library is located in the Funny Guys Catalogs, and, since it occasionally deals with dramatic situations, it is also found in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

      1/18/19 - Today, for the first time in over a year, I added eighteen theatrical shorts to the 3 Stooges Shorts library. The Three Stooges were an American vaudeville and comedy team active from 1922 until 1970, best known for their 190 short subject films by Columbia Pictures that have been regularly airing on television since 1958. Their hallmark was physical farce and slapstick. Six stooges appeared over the act's run (with only three active at any given time): Moe Howard and Larry Fine were mainstays throughout the ensemble's nearly fifty-year run and the pivotal "third Stooge" was played by (in order of appearance) Shemp Howard, Curly Howard, Shemp Howard again, Joe Besser, and Curly Joe DeRita. I was recently alerted to a cache of these videos by a regular correspondent =. I still have over 100 of them bookmarked, so many more to come. This library is located in The 3 Stooges Catalog which can be accessed via the Comedy Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. The added shorts are:
      Cookoo Cavaliers (1940)
      Boobs In Arms (1940)
      Dutiful but Dumb (1941)
      All The World's a Stooge (1941)
      I'll Never Heil Again (1941)
      An Ache in Every Stake (1941)
      In the Sweet Pie and Pie (1941)
      Some More Of Samoa (1941)
      So Long Mr. Chumps (1941)
      Loco Boy Makes Good (1942)
      Cactus Makes Perfect (1942)
      What's the Matador (1942)
      Matri-Phony (1942)
      Three Smart Saps (1942)
      Even As IOU (1942)
      Sock A Bye Baby (1942)
      They Stooge to Conga (1943)
      Dizzy Detectives (1943)

      1/17/19 - Today I added all twenty-four episodes of Season 3 to the M*A*S*H library. M*A*S*H was an American media franchise consisting of a series of novels, a film, several television series, plays, and other properties, owned by 20th Century Fox and based on the semi-autobiographic fiction of Richard Hooker. The franchise depicts a group of fictional characters who served at the fictional "4077th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital (M*A*S*H)" during the Korean War, loosely based on the historic 8055th MASH unit. Hawkeye Pierce is featured as the main character, played by Donald Sutherland in the film and by Alan Alda on television. Later spin-offs involve characters who appeared in the series, but were set after the end of the war. Almost all versions of the series fit into the genre of black comedy or dramedy; the lead characters were doctors or nurses, and the practice of medicine was at the center of events. However, to relieve the pressures of duty in a field hospital close to the front and the attendant horrors of war, the staff engage in humorous hijinks, frivolity and petty rivalries off duty. M*A*S*H, a spin-off of the film, ran from 1972 to 1983, more than three times as long as the war it chronicled. It starred Alan Alda as Hawkeye Pierce and Wayne Rogers as Trapper John McIntyre. After the third season, Rogers left the show and was replaced by Mike Farrell as B. J. Hunnicutt. Another change was the addition of Harry Morgan as Colonel Sherman T. Potter, a veteran character actor and former Universal contract player, who replaced McLean Stevenson the same year. This series is the most popular and well-known version of the franchise and was ranked #25 in TV Guide's "TV Guide's 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time." Its final episode in 1983 was the most-watched in television history. This library is located in the Comedy Shows and the Action and Adventure Catalogs. I have recently found and bookmarked a large cache of episodes from all 11 Seasons of the series, so many more to come!

      1/16/19 - Today I added ten episodes to the Captain Midnight Library. This the first time I have added to this library in about 3 years. This is pretty special too me because not only is this one of (if not the first) library I ever created on the site, but it is definitely the first television program I ever watched. Captain Midnight (later rebranded on television as Jet Jackson, Flying Commando) is a U.S. adventure franchise first broadcast as a radio serial from 1938 to 1949. The character's popularity throughout the 1940s and into the mid-1950s extended to serial films (1942), a television show (1954–1956), a syndicated newspaper strip (1942-late 1940s), and a comic book title (1942–1948). The title character, originally Captain Jim "Red" Albright, was a World War I U.S. Army pilot. His Captain Midnight code name was given by a general who sent him on a high-risk mission from which he returned at the stroke of 12. When the show began in 1938, Albright was a private aviator who helped people, but his situation changed in 1940. When the show was taken over by Ovaltine, the origin story explained how Albright was recruited to head the Secret Squadron, an aviation-oriented paramilitary organization fighting sabotage and espionage during the period prior to the United States' entry into World War II. The Secret Squadron acted both within and outside the United States. This library is located in the Kid Shows the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalogs and the Catalog of Stars. The added episodes are:
      Electronic Killer
      Death Below Zero
      Trapped Behind Bars
      The Walking Ghost
      The Deserters
      Top Secret Weapon
      The Mark of Death
      Saboteurs of the Sky
      The Secret Room
      Sunken Sapphires

      1/15/19 - Today I added again to my Feature Films Catalog by creating a new Jack Lemmon Film library with eleven of his movies. John Uhler "Jack" Lemmon III (February 8, 1925 – June 27, 2001) was an American actor and musician. Lemmon was an eight-time Academy Award nominee, with two wins. He starred in over 60 films, such as Some Like It Hot, The Apartment, Mister Roberts (for which he won the 1955 Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor), Days of Wine and Roses, The Great Race, Irma la Douce, The Odd Couple and its sequel The Odd Couple II (and other frequent collaborations with Odd Couple co-star Walter Matthau), Save the Tiger (for which he won the 1973 Academy Award for Best Actor), The Out-of-Towners, The China Syndrome, Missing, Glengarry Glen Ross, Tuesdays with Morrie, Out to Sea, Grumpy Old Men, and Grumpier Old Men. The new library is also available via the Catalog of Stars.

      1/14/19 - Today I created a new Jimmy Clitheroe library. James Robinson Clitheroe (24 December 1921 – 6 June 1973), popularly known as Jimmy Clitheroe, was an English comic entertainer. He started out as a boy on the stage, touring the variety theatres in Yorkshire and Lancashire from 1937. He was an accordionist and also played the xylophone and saxophone. His parents bought a caravan so they could take him round the various towns in whose theatres he appeared. He is best remembered for his BBC Radio programme, The Clitheroe Kid (1958–72), versions of which was produced for television on the ITV network under the titles That's My Boy! (1963) and Just Jimmy (1964–68). Clitheroe never grew taller than 4 feet 3 inches, and so was able to play the part of a young boy well into his 40's. The new library contains all seven episodes of That's My Boy! and one episodes of Just Jimmy, and is located in the Comedy Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      1/13/19 - I didn't have much time to spare today, so I added just eight episodes to Season 8 of the Wagon Train library. Wagon Train was an American Western series that ran on NBC 1957–62 and then on ABC 1962–65. The series initially starred veteran movie supporting actor Ward Bond as the wagon master, later replaced upon his death by John McIntire, and Robert Horton as the scout, subsequently replaced by Scott Miller and Robert Fuller. The show chronicles the adventures of a wagon train as it makes its way from Missouri to California, and most episodes featured a guest star who played the part of the character for which the episode was titled. This library is located in the Western Shows Catalog. I still have some Season 8 episodes to add, so more to come! The added episodes are:

      Bob Stuart
      Race Town
      Alice Whitetree
      Those Who Stay
      Richard Bloodgood
      Clay Shelby
      Little Girl Lost

      1/12/19 - Today I added twenty-nine episodes to Seasons 3 and 4 of the In Search of...Library. In Search of... (1977-1982) was a television series devoted to mysterious phenomena. It was created after the success of three one-hour TV documentaries produced by creator Alan Landsburg: In Search of Ancient Astronauts in 1973 (based on the book Chariots of the Gods?), In Search of Ancient Mysteries and The Outer Space Connection, both in 1975. All three featured narration by Rod Serling, who was the initial choice to host the spin-off show. After Serling's death, Leonard Nimoy was selected to be the host. The new version of the library contains 3 episodes from the original version - all the rest are new. This library is in the News/Documentary/Reality Programs Catalog. Many more to come. The added episodes are all of them on page 4 of the library.

      1/11/19 - Today I created a new The New Loretta Young Show library with all twenty-six episodes of the short-lived series. The New Loretta Young Show, is an American television series, which aired for twenty-six weekly episodes on CBS television from September 24, 1962, to March 18, 1963, features Loretta Young in a combination drama and situation comedy about a free-lance writer in suburban Connecticut named Christine Massey, the widowed mother of seven children. The program is the only one in which Young starred as a recurring character. Her previous anthology series on NBC (1953–1961) placed her in the role of hostess and occasional star. Young is the first star to garner both Academy and Emmy awards, one of a relatively few to make the transition from motion picture to television. The new library is located in the Television Drama Catalog and Loretta Young Catalog Catalog, which is accessed via the Catalog of Stars.

      1/8/19 - Back in the Feature Films Catalog again today - I created a new Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. Library with ten of his films, some of which were already on the site in other libraries. Douglas Elton Fairbanks Jr., KBE, DSC (December 9, 1909 – May 7, 2000), was an American actor and producer, and a decorated naval officer of World War II. He is best known for starring in such films as The Prisoner of Zenda (1937), Gunga Din (1939) and The Corsican Brothers (1941). He was the son of actor Douglas Fairbanks and was once married to Joan Crawford. The new library is also available via the Catalog of Stars.

      1/7/19 - Today I continued to expand my Feature Films Catalog with a new Tony Curtis Film Library, including nine of his movies. Tony Curtis (born Bernard Schwartz; June 3, 1925 – September 29, 2010) was an American film actor whose career spanned six decades but who achieved the height of his popularity in the 1950s and early 1960s. He acted in more than 100 films in roles covering a wide range of genres, from light comedy to serious drama. Although his early film roles mainly took advantage of his good looks, by the latter half of the 1950s he had demonstrated range and depth in numerous dramatic and comedy roles. In his earliest parts he acted in a string of mediocre films, including swashbucklers, westerns, light comedies, sports films and a musical. However, by the time he starred in Houdini (1953) with his wife Janet Leigh, "his first clear success," notes critic David Thomson, his acting had progressed immensely. The new library is also available via the Catalog of Stars.

      1/6/19 - Today I added twelve episodes to the Brian Henderson's Bandstand Library. These have been popping up on the Internet Archive for several months. Henderson hosted the Australian version of Bandstand from 1958 until 1972. Henderson also holds the record for the longest-serving television news presenter, having read either the weekend or the weeknight news on Sydney station TCN-9 from January 1957 until his retirement in late November 2002. From his first news broadcast in 1957, the tag-line Henderson used to sign off at the end of every newscast was either "...and that's the way it is" or "the way it is", similar to Walter Cronkite. These just keep showing up so I assume there will be more to come. This library is located in the Bandstand Catalog, which can be found in the Musical and Variety Catalog. The added episodes are:
      June 6, 1964
      June 13, 1964
      January 6, 1968
      January 13, 1968
      January 20, 1968
      March 16, 1968
      March 30, 1968
      April 7, 1968
      May 18, 1968
      May 25, 1968
      June 22, 1968
      August 3, 1968

      1/5/19 - Today I continued to expand my Feature Films Catalog with new libraries for Errol Flynn and Paul Newman films. Errol Leslie Thomson Flynn (20 June 1909 – 14 October 1959) was an Australian-born American actor during the Golden Age of Hollywood. Considered the natural successor to Douglas Fairbanks, he achieved worldwide fame for his romantic swashbuckler roles in Hollywood films, as well as frequent partnerships with Olivia de Havilland. He was best known for his role as Robin Hood in The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938); his portrayal of the character was named by the American Film Institute as the 18th greatest hero in American film history. His other famous roles included the eponymous lead in Captain Blood (1935), Major Geoffrey Vickers in The Charge of the Light Brigade (1936), as well as a number of Westerns, such as Dodge City (1939), Santa Fe Trail (1940), and San Antonio (1945). Paul Leonard Newman (January 26, 1925 – September 26, 2008) was an American actor, voice actor, film director, producer, race car driver, IndyCar owner, entrepreneur, and philanthropist. He won and was nominated for numerous awards, winning an Academy Award for his performance in the 1986 film The Color of Money, a BAFTA Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award, a Cannes Film Festival Award, an Emmy Award, and many others. Newman's other roles include the title characters in The Hustler (1961), Hud (1963), Harper (1966) and Cool Hand Luke (1967), as well as Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969), The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean (1972), The Sting (1973), and The Verdict (1982). I then searched through the Uncle Earl site to see what I had for television appearances by both actors and managed to find a few, including the Flynn produced Errol Flynn Theatre series, of which I have three episodes, and a couple of Other TV Appearances for each of them. This prompted me to build a new Errol Flynn Catalog and also a new Paul Newman Catalog to house the various libraries. Both new catalogs are available via the Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      1/3/19 - Today I added thirteen episodes from Season 4 to the Loretta Young Show library. The Loretta Young Show (1953-1961) (originally known as Letter to Loretta) was an American anthology drama television series broadcast on Sunday nights on NBC. The series was hosted by actress Loretta Young, who also played the lead in various episodes. The program began with the premise that each drama was an answer to a question asked in her fan mail. The title was changed to The Loretta Young Show during the first season, and the "letter" concept was dropped altogether at the end of the second season. I have episodes of Seasons 6 and 7 yet to post, so more to come. This library is located in the Television Drama Catalog and Loretta Young Catalog Catalog, which is accessed via the Catalog of Stars. The added shows are all of the Season 4 episodes.

      1/2/19 - Tonight I restored twenty-four episodes to the Our Miss Brooks Library. This now includes all of the episodes in the original library. Our Miss Brooks was an American sitcom starring Eve Arden as a sardonic high-school English teacher. It began as a radio show broadcast on CBS from 1948 to 1957. When the show was adapted to television (1952–56), it became one of the medium's earliest hits. In 1956, the sitcom was adapted for the big screen in the film of the same name. Our Miss Brooks ran for 130 episodes on television and won an Emmy Award before it was canceled in 1956. I used to have a small library of these episodes (29 episodes) but they were from YouTube and all but 6 of them disappeared early on. So for several years those 6 were are all I had. Then today, an email correspondent wrote to wish me a Happy New Year then divulged the location of 60 episodes cache, which I am working to add too the library, starting with the ones I already have pages for. This library is located in Eve Arden Catalog. which can be accessed via the Whacky Dames Catalog, and the Catalog of Stars. The restored episodes are:
      Pick a Fight
      Birthday Bag
      Living Statues
      Mr. Whipple
      Blue Goldfish
      Stolen Aerial
      Christmas Show

      Postage Due
      Do It Yourself
      Brooks Car
      Hobo Jungle
      The Wild Goose
      A Dry Scalp

      1/1/19 - Today I added twenty-six episodes to the My Three Sons Library. My Three Sons (1960-1972) was an American sitcom. The series ran from 1960 to 1965 on ABC, and moved to CBS until the end of its run on April 13, 1972. My Three Sons chronicles the life of widower and aeronautical engineer Steven Douglas (Fred MacMurray) as he raises his three sons. The series originally featured William Frawley as the boys' live-in maternal grandfather and maid, William Michael Francis "Bub" O'Casey. William Demarest, playing Bub's brother, "Charley", replaced Frawley in 1965 due to Frawley's illness. In September 1965, eldest son Mike (Tim Considine) married, and his character was written out of the show. To keep the emphasis on "three sons", original youngest son Chip's friend Ernie was adopted. In the program's later years, Steven Douglas remarried and adopted his new wife's young daughter Dorothy ("Dodie") (Dawn Lyn). This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs. I still have lots of episodes from the remaining 4 seasons to add, so many more to come! The added episodes are all of them on the last page of the library.

      12/29/18 - Today I added the ten remaining available episodes to Seasons 1 and 4 of the Sanford and Son library. Sanford and Son was an American sitcom that ran on the NBC television network from January 14, 1972, to March 25, 1977. It was based on the BBC Television program Steptoe and Son. Known for its edgy racial humor, running gags and catchphrases, the series was adapted by Norman Lear and considered NBC's answer to CBS's All in the Family. Sanford and Son has been hailed as the precursor to many other African American sitcoms. It was a ratings hit throughout its six-season run. While the role of Fred G. Sanford was known for his bigotry and cantankerousness, the role of Lamont Sanford was that of a conscientious peacemaker. At times, both characters would involve themselves in schemes, usually as a means of earning cash quickly in order to pay off their various debts. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas and Comedy Shows Catalogs. I now have the bulk of the series episodes bookmarked, so I will be expanding the library over the next few months. The added episodes are;

      The Copper Caper
      Great Sanford Siege
      Surprise Party
      Some Changes Made
      Home Sweet Home
      My Kingdom
      The Merger
      Golden Boy
      The Headache
      Over-the-Hill Gag

      12/28/18 - Today I added the remaining missing seven episodes to Season 1 of the Thriller library, which completes the season. Thriller (1960-1962) (also known as Boris Karloff's Thriller) was an American anthology television series that aired on NBC. The show featured host Boris Karloff introducing a mix of macabre horror tales and suspense thrillers. In addition to serving as the host of the series, Karloff also starred in five episodes: "The Prediction," "The Premature Burial," "The Last of the Sommervilles," "Dialogues With Death," and "The Incredible Doctor Markesan. This library is available in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror and the Boris Karloff Catalogs. I have sixteen episodes of Season 2 to add, so more to come! The added episodes are:

      The Cheaters
      The Hungry Glass
      Bill-Hook
      Trio for Terror
      Prisoner in the Mirror
      Dark Legacy
      The Grim Reaper

      12/25/18 - Today I added the last eight episodes of Season 1 and the first nineteen episodes of Season 2 to the Gilligan's Island Library. In Gilligan's Island (1964–1992) the two-man crew of the charter boat SS Minnow and five passengers on a "three-hour tour" from Honolulu run into a tropical storm and are shipwrecked on an uncharted island somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. Stars: Bob Denver, Alan Hale Jr., Jim Backus, Natalie Schafer, Tina Louise, Russell Johnson and Dawn Wells. I started looking for episodes of this series soon after I first created the site im 2010 with no luck - but have not looked for them in the past few years. The added episodes are all of them on the 2nd library page and the Season 2 episodes are in color. I now have all but 3 of the complete series episodes bookmarked, so many more to come! The new libray is located in the Comedy Shows Catalog, and also in the Bob Denver Catalog, which is also available in the Comedy Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      12/23/18 - Today I added the twenty available episodes to Season 3 of the WKRP in Cincinnati library. WKRP in Cincinnati (1979-1982) was an American sitcom that featured the misadventures of the staff of a struggling fictional radio station in Cincinnati, Ohio. The ensemble cast consists of Gary Sandy, Howard Hesseman, Gordon Jump, Loni Anderson, Tim Reid, Jan Smithers, Richard Sanders and Frank Bonner. The series won a Humanitas Prize and received 10 Emmy Award nominations, including three for Outstanding Comedy Series. I felt a personal connection to this series because, during the latter part of it's run, I ran a recording studio out of my home and would make radio commercials from time-to-time - doing voice-overs and writing and recording commercial jingles, etc. So I spent some time in radio stations and met people who held the same kinds of jobs as the characters in this series. The original version of the library was from Hulu and only includes Season 1 episodes. I still have SEason 4 episodes to add, so more to come. This library is located in the Whacky Dames and the Funny Guys Catalogs.

      12/21/18 - This evening I was delighted to stumble across a copy of the classic Christmas movie White Christmas on the Internet Archive just in time for the holidays. White Christmas is a 1954 American musical film directed by Michael Curtiz and starring Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney, and Vera-Ellen. Filmed in VistaVision and Technicolor, it features the songs of Irving Berlin, including a new version of the title song, "White Christmas", introduced by Crosby in the film Holiday Inn. This film can be found in the Christmas Films Library, the Bing Crosby Film Library, the Danny Kaye Film Library and the Rosemary Clonney Film Library. Merry Christmas everyone!

      12/18/18 - Today, to celebrate the life of comic actress, Penny Marshall, who passed away at the age of 75 ysterday, I decided to post the remaining eleven available episodes to the Lavern & Shirley library which completes the library until I find more of the dozens af missing episodes. Carole Penny Marshall (October 15, 1943 – December 17, 2018) was an American actress, director and producer. She was the daughter of Marjorie Marshall, a tap dance teacher, and Tony Marshall, a film director and producer. Her parents' background in entertainment, along with her brother, Garry Marshall's, background as a comedy writer and her sister's background as a casting director and producer, gave rise to Marshall's career in the industry. She rose to fame in the 1970s for her role as Laverne DeFazio on the television sitcom Laverne & Shirley (1976–1983), receiving three nominations for the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Television Series Musical or Comedy for her portrayal. This library can be found in the Whacky Dames Catalog, which is accessed via the Comedy Shows Catalog. The added episodes are:

      A Nun's Story
      Blind Dates
      Once Upon a Rumor
      Dating Slump
      It's the Water
      The Stakeout
      Hi, Neighbor
      Are You Dead?
      From Suds to Stardom
      Mother Knows Worst

      12/17/18 - Today I created a new Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In library. Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In (1967–1973) often simply referred to as Laugh-In, was an American sketch comedy television program that ran for 140 episodes from January 22, 1968, to March 12, 1973, on the NBC television network. It was hosted by comedians Dan Rowan and Dick Martin. Laugh-In originally aired as a one-time special on September 9, 1967, and was such a success that it was brought back as a series. The first video is a compilation episode, the rest are individual sketches. The new library is located in the Funny Guys and the Sketch Comedy catalogs.

      12/15/18 - Today I added the all twenty-five episodes of Season 2 to the Lancer Library. This completes the library with all 51 episodes of the series. Lancer is an American Western series that aired Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. (EST) on CBS from September 24, 1968, to June 23, 1970. The series stars Andrew Duggan, James Stacy and Wayne Maunder as a father with two half-brother sons, an arrangement similar to the more successful Bonanza on NBC. Duggan stars as the less than admirable Murdoch Lancer, the patriarch of the Lancer family. Stacy appears as half-Mexican gunslinger Johnny Madrid Lancer. Wayne Maunder was cast as Scott Lancer, the educated older son (though he is younger than Stacy) and a veteran of the Union Army, in contrast to Stacy's role of former gunslinger. Paul Brinegar also appeared as Jelly Hoskins, a series regular from season two after making a one off guest appearance during the first season. The new libray is located in the Western Shows Catalog.

      12/13/18 - Today I created a new Saturday Night Live library with twenty-one episodes from the 1970s and 80s to start. Saturday Night Live (SNL) is an American late-night live television variety show which premiered on NBC on October 11, 1975, under the original title NBC's Saturday Night. The show's comedy sketches, which parody contemporary culture and politics, are performed by a large and varying cast. Each episode is hosted by a celebrity guest, who usually delivers the opening monologue and performs in sketches with the cast along with a musical guest. An episode normally begins with a cold open sketch that ends with someone breaking character and proclaiming, "Live from New York, it's Saturday Night!". I have had one of these episodes for several years, but had trouble finding any other full episodes until this week. I will keep looking, but at the moment I am just happy to have found these. The new library is located in the Funny Guys and the Sketch Comedy catalogs.

      12/12/18 - Today I created a new That Was The Week That Was library with the only four episodes I have found thus far. That Was The Week That Was, informally TWTWTW or TW3, was first broadcast on Saturday, November 24, 1962, and was a precursor of the Monty Python's Flying Circus series. Two Python stars, Graham Chapman and John CleeseIt were regular performers on the program, which was presented by David Frost. An American version by the same name aired on NBC from 1964 to 1965, also featuring Frost. The program is considered a significant element of the satire boom in the UK in the early 1960s. It broke ground in comedy through lampooning the establishment and political figures. These are very hard to come by - I will keep searching for them. The new library is located in the Funny Guys and the Sketch Comedy catalogs.

      12/11/18 - Today I added the twenty-one available episodes of Season 3 to the Barney Miller library. Barney Miller was an American sitcom set in a New York City Police Department police station in Greenwich Village. The series originally was broadcast from January 23, 1975, to May 20, 1982, on ABC. The series takes place almost entirely within the confines of the detectives' squad room and Captain Barney Miller's adjoining office of New York City's fictional 12th Precinct, located in Greenwich Village. A typical episode would feature the detectives of the 12th bringing in several complainants and/or suspects to the squad room. Usually, two or three separate subplots are in a given episode, with different officers dealing with different crimes. Once a year, an episode would feature one or more of the detectives outside of the walls of the precinct, either on a stakeout or at one of their homes. I will be expanding the library going forward. This library is located in the Funny Guys Catalogs, and, since it occasionally deals with dramatic situations, it is also found in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

      12/10/18 - Today I added all twenty-five episodes of Season 3 to The Partridge Family Library. The Partridge Family was an American musical sitcom starring Shirley Jones and featuring David Cassidy. Jones played a widowed mother, and Cassidy played the oldest of her five children who embarked on a music career. It ran from September 25, 1970, until March 23, 1974, on the ABC network as part of a Friday-night lineup, and had subsequent runs in syndication. The family was loosely based on the real-life musical family The Cowsills, a popular band in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The new library is located in the Musical and Variety and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs. I recently found a large cache of these episodes, so more to come.

      12/9/18 - Today I added fourteen episodes to the Fernwood 2 Night library. Fernwood 2 Night (or Fernwood Tonight) was a comedic television program that ran weeknights from July 1977 to September 1977. It was created by Norman Lear and produced by Alan Thicke as a spin-off/summer replacement from Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman. It was a parody talk show, hosted by Barth Gimble (Martin Mull) and sidekick/announcer Jerry Hubbard (Fred Willard), complete with a stage band, Happy Kyne and the Mirthmakers (featuring Frank De Vol as the dour "Happy" Kyne, and Tommy Tedesco as one of the guitarists). Barth was purportedly the twin brother of Garth Gimble from Mary Hartman. This library is located in the Funny Guys! Catalog. I have a few more to add so stay tuned.

      12/8/18 - Today I restored my Dick Cavett Show Library with twenty-three episodes thus far. The original library was from Hulu, which took down their collection a few years ago. The late-night talk show that ran from December 29, 1969 to January 1, 1975 ran opposite NBC's The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. Cavett took the time slot over from Joey Bishop. While Cavett and Carson shared many of the same guests, Cavett was receptive to rock and roll artists to a degree unusual at the time, as well as authors, politicians, and other personalities outside the entertainment field. The wide variety of guests, combined with Cavett's literate and intelligent approach to comedy, appealed to a significant enough number of viewers to keep the show running for several years despite the competition from Carson's show. This library will also contain a number of episodes from the later versions of the show that ran until 1996. The restored library can be found in the News/Documentary (Reality) Programs Catalogs.

      12/7/18 - Today I added the first nineteen episodes to Season 3 of In Search of...Library. In Search of... (1977-1982) was a television series devoted to mysterious phenomena. It was created after the success of three one-hour TV documentaries produced by creator Alan Landsburg: In Search of Ancient Astronauts in 1973 (based on the book Chariots of the Gods?), In Search of Ancient Mysteries and The Outer Space Connection, both in 1975. All three featured narration by Rod Serling, who was the initial choice to host the spin-off show. After Serling's death, Leonard Nimoy was selected to be the host. The new version of the library contains 3 episodes from the original version - all the rest are new. This library is in the News/Documentary/Reality Programs Catalog. Many more to come.

      12/6/18 - Today I created a new Phil Donahue Show Library with fourteen episodes of the show to start. Phillip John "Phil" Donahue (born December 21, 1935) is an American media personality, writer, film producer, and the creator and host of The Phil Donahue Show. The show had a 29-year run on national television in America that began in Dayton, Ohio, and ended in New York City in 1996. In July 2002, Phil Donahue returned to television to host a show called Donahue on MSNBC. On February 25, 2003, MSNBC canceled the show. Soon after, an internal MSNBC memo was leaked to the press stating that Donahue should be fired because he opposed the imminent U.S. invasion of Iraq and that he would be a "difficult public face for NBC in a time of war." The new library is avalable in the News/Documentary/Reality Programs Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. There are more of these to come.

      12/5/18 - Today I added the last seventeen missing episodes to the The Andy Griffith Show Library. This completes the library with all 249 episodes of the series. The Andy Griffith Show was an American sitcom first televised on CBS between October 3, 1960 and April 1, 1968. The show, a semi-spin-off from an episode of The Danny Thomas Show, stars Andy Griffith, who portrays the widowed sheriff of the fictional small community of Mayberry, North Carolina. His life is complicated by an inept, but well-meaning deputy, Barney Fife (Don Knotts), a spinster aunt and housekeeper, Aunt Bee (Frances Bavier), and a precocious young son, Opie (Ron Howard). Local ne'er-do-wells, bumbling pals, and temperamental girlfriends further complicate his life. The series never placed lower than seventh in the Nielsen ratings and ended its final season at number one.

      12/2/18 - Today started to restore my Mama's Family library with seventeen episodes from Seasons 1, 2 and 3 and the TV Movie that served as. the pilot for the series. Mama's Family (1983–1990) was an American television sitcom starring Vicki Lawrence as Thelma Harper (Mama). The series was a spin-off of a recurring series of comedy sketches called "The Family" featured on The Carol Burnett Show (1974–78). That led to the made-for-TV movie, Eunice, and finally the television series. Mama's Family originally aired on NBC. After several timeslot changes and subsequent drop in ratings the network cancelled the series in 1984. Two years after its cancellation, original series producer Joe Hamilton Productions decided to follow a lead that several other programs at the time had set and revive Mama's Family for first-run syndication on local stations across the United States. The revived series premiered on September 27, 1986. The syndicated version garnered substantially higher ratings than did its network version, eventually becoming the highest rated sitcom in first-run syndication. Its four season-run ended on February 24, 1990. The new library is located in the Family Comedies and Drama Catalog. The original library had all of the Season 1 and 2 episodes, but it vanished soon after I created the library. I still have episodes from Seasons 4, 5 and 6 to post, so more to come.

      12/01/18 - Today I added the last twelve episodes too the The Rat Patrol library. This completes the library with all 58 episodes included. The Rat Patrol (1966-1968) was an American action and adventure television series that aired on ABC. The show follows the exploits of four Allied soldiers — three Americans and one Briton — who are part of a long-range desert patrol group in the North African campaign during World War II. Their mission: "to attack, harass and wreak havoc on Field Marshal Rommel's vaunted Afrika Korps". Stars: Christopher George, Gary Raymond, Eric Braeden. This library is located in the Action and Adventure Catalog. The added episodes are all of them on the 3rd page of the library.

      11/29/18 - Today I added ten episodes too Season 2 of the Loretta Young Show library. The Loretta Young Show (1953-1961) (originally known as Letter to Loretta) was an American anthology drama television series broadcast on Sunday nights on NBC. The series was hosted by actress Loretta Young, who also played the lead in various episodes. The program began with the premise that each drama was an answer to a question asked in her fan mail. The title was changed to The Loretta Young Show during the first season, and the "letter" concept was dropped altogether at the end of the second season. I have episodes of Season 4, 6 and 7 yet to post, so more to come. This library is located in the Television Drama Catalog and Loretta Young Catalog Catalog, which is accessed via the Catalog of Stars. The added episodes are:

      Dr. Juliet
      For Father Darling

The series initially starred veteran movie supporting actor Ward Bond as the wagon master, later replaced upon his death by John McIntire, and Robert Horton as the scout, subsequently replaced by Scott Miller and Robert Fuller. The show chronicles the adventures of a wagon train as it makes its way from Missouri to California, and most episodes featured a guest star who played the part of the character for which the episode was titled. This library is located in the Western Shows Catalog. I still have Season 8 episodes to add, so more to come! The added episodes are:

      11/26/18 - After receiving a suggestion regarding the Blondie (and Dagwood) film series from a regular Facebook correspondent, I did some searching and managed to find nineteen of films. Blondie is an American comic strip created by cartoonist Chic Young. The comic strip is distributed by King Features Syndicate, and has been published in newspapers since September 8, 1930. The success of the strip, which features the eponymous blonde and her sandwich-loving husband, led to the long-running Blondie film series (1938–1950) and the popular Blondie radio program (1939–1950). There 28 films based on the comic strip; Columbia Pictures produced them from 1938 to 1943, and popular demand brought them back in 1945. Columbia used the series to showcase many of its talented contract players. Rita Hayworth was featured in Blondie on a Budget; Glenn Ford in Blondie Plays Cupid, Larry Parks and Janet Blair in Blondie Goes to College, Shemp Howard in Blondie Knows Best and Adele Jergens in Blondie's Anniversary. Other roles were taken by Columbia contractees Bruce Bennett, Lloyd Bridges, Ann Doran, Stanley Brown, Richard Fiske, Bud Jamison, Eddie Laughton, John Tyrrell, Alyn Lockwood, Jimmy Lloyd, Gay Nelson and Ross Ford. The regular stars of the films were: Penny Singleton as Blondie Bumstead, Arthur Lake as Dagwood Bumstead, Larry Simms as Alexander "Baby Dumpling" Bumstead and Daisy the dog, who was given her own credit in each of the films. I noticed that these films represent a kind of pre-cursor to the classic TV sit-com series' that began appearing in the 1950s. Each of them is over an hour long. The new library is located in the Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      11/22/18 - This morning I added ten films to my James Stewart Film Library. James "Jimmy" Maitland Stewart (May 20, 1908 – July 2, 1997) was an American film and stage actor, known for his distinctive drawl voice and down-to-earth persona. Over the course of his career, he starred in many films widely considered classics. He was known for portraying the average American Middle Class man, with everyday life struggles. Stewart was nominated for five Academy Awards, winning one in competition and receiving one Lifetime Achievement award. Stewart was named the third greatest male screen legend in cinema history by the American Film Institute. The added films are:
      It's A Wonderful Life (1946)
      Call Northside 777 (1948)
      Winchester 73' (1950)
      The Greatest Show On Earth (1952)

      11/20/18 - Today I added nine skits too the Carol Burnett Show Skits Library. The Carol Burnett Show was an American variety/sketch comedy television show starring Carol Burnett, Harvey Korman, Vicki Lawrence, Lyle Waggoner, and Tim Conway. It originally ran on CBS from September 11, 1967, to March 29, 1978, for 278 episodes, and again with 9 episodes in the fall of 1991. The series won 25 prime-time Emmy Awards, was ranked No. 16 on TV Guide's 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time in 2002, and in 2007 was listed as one of Time magazine's "100 Best TV Shows of All Time. These are indvidual skits from the series and is located in the Carol Burnett Catalog which can be accessed via the Whacky Dames Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. The added skits are all of them on the 3rd page of the library.

      11/19/18 - Today I started expanding my WKRP in Cincinnati library with the twenty-two avalable episodes of Season 2. WKRP in Cincinnati (1979-1982) was an American sitcom that featured the misadventures of the staff of a struggling fictional radio station in Cincinnati, Ohio. The ensemble cast consists of Gary Sandy, Howard Hesseman, Gordon Jump, Loni Anderson, Tim Reid, Jan Smithers, Richard Sanders and Frank Bonner. The series won a Humanitas Prize and received 10 Emmy Award nominations, including three for Outstanding Comedy Series. I felt a personal connection to this series because, during the latter part of it's run, I ran a recording studio out of my home and would make radio commercials from time-to-time - doing voice-overs and writing and recording commercial jingles, etc. So I spent some time in radio stations and met people who held the same kinds of jobs as the characters in this series. This is the frist time I have added to this library since 2015. The original version of the library is from Hulu and only includes Season 1 episodes. I have recently found a cache of episodes from all four Seasons, so many more to come. This library is located in the Whacky Dames and the Funny Guys Catalogs.

      11/17/18 - Today I restored my Gong Show library with eight episodes and four clip compilations (all I have found so far). I put this one in the Game Show Catalog, since it has a panel of judges and features contestants. The Gong Show is an amateur talent contest franchised by Sony Pictures Television to many countries. It was broadcast on NBC's daytime schedule from June 14, 1976 through July 21, 1978, and in first-run syndication from 1976 to 1980 and 1988 to 1989, and was revived in 2017 for broadcast on ABC. The show was created and originally produced by Chuck Barris, who also served as host for the NBC run and from 1977 to 1980 in syndication. I should mention that I was actually on the Gong Show back in 1980. In fact, you can see me and my music partner at the time (Pierre Ardans) in the background of one of the scenes in the Gong Show Movie. On the show we played one of my original songs accompanied by the Gong Show orchestra. We lost to a trumpet playing dwarf who got up and told short jokes! Unfortunately, our act didn't make the cut for the broadcast. The score we got (29) didn't affect the outcome of the show so we were eliminated along with about 5 other acts. Jaye P Morgan looked me right in the eye and winked as she gave us a "9", thus taking us out of competition. This library has been barren for a little while, but I didn't realize it until yesterday because the YouTube videos that comprised the collection appeared to be okay until you actually tried to watch them - at which point you got a message telling you that the videos were blocked in the United States. These are all from the Internet Archive, so I have hopes that they might last a while.

      11/16/18 - Today I created a new Rosalind Russell library with eight of her feature films. Catherine Rosalind Russell (June 4, 1907 – November 28, 1976) was an American actress, comedian, screenwriter and singer, known for her role as fast-talking newspaper reporter Hildy Johnson in the Howard Hawks screwball comedy His Girl Friday (1940), as well as for her portrayals of Mame Dennis in Auntie Mame (1958) and Rose in Gypsy (1962). A noted comedian, she won all five Golden Globes for which she was nominated. This library is located in the Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      11/15/18 - Today I restored my M*A*S*H library with all of the Season 1 and 2 episodes (which comprised the entire original library). M*A*S*H was an American media franchise consisting of a series of novels, a film, several television series, plays, and other properties, owned by 20th Century Fox and based on the semi-autobiographic fiction of Richard Hooker. The franchise depicts a group of fictional characters who served at the fictional "4077th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital (M*A*S*H)" during the Korean War, loosely based on the historic 8055th MASH unit. Hawkeye Pierce is featured as the main character, played by Donald Sutherland in the film and by Alan Alda on television. Later spin-offs involve characters who appeared in the series, but were set after the end of the war. Almost all versions of the series fit into the genre of black comedy or dramedy; the lead characters were doctors or nurses, and the practice of medicine was at the center of events. However, to relieve the pressures of duty in a field hospital close to the front and the attendant horrors of war, the staff engage in humorous hijinks, frivolity and petty rivalries off duty. M*A*S*H, a spin-off of the film, ran from 1972 to 1983, more than three times as long as the war it chronicled. It starred Alan Alda as Hawkeye Pierce and Wayne Rogers as Trapper John McIntyre. After the third season, Rogers left the show and was replaced by Mike Farrell as B. J. Hunnicutt. Another change was the addition of Harry Morgan as Colonel Sherman T. Potter, a veteran character actor and former Universal contract player, who replaced McLean Stevenson the same year. This series is the most popular and well-known version of the franchise and was ranked #25 in TV Guide's "TV Guide's 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time." Its final episode in 1983 was the most-watched in television history. This library is located in the Comedy Shows and the Action and Adventure Catalogs. I have recently found and bookmarked a large cache of episodes from all 11 Seasons of the series, so many more to come!

      11/13/18 - This week I decided to build up my Feature Films Catalog. I will be continuing the expansion over the next few months. I added a Clark Gable Catalog with nine of Gable's films, and a Spencer Tracy Catalog with eleven films. William Clark Gable (February 1, 1901 – November 16, 1960) was an American film actor and military officer, often referred to as "The King of Hollywood". He began his career appearing as an extra in silent films between 1924 and 1926, and progressed to supporting roles with a few films for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in 1930. The next year, he landed his first leading Hollywood role, and over the next three decades, he was a leading man in more than 60 motion pictures. Spencer Bonaventure Tracy (April 5, 1900 – June 10, 1967) was an American actor, noted for his natural style and versatility. One of the major stars of Hollywood's Golden Age, Tracy won two Academy Awards for Best Actor from nine nominations, sharing the record for nominations in that category with Laurence Olivier. During his career, Tracy appeared in 75 films and developed a reputation among his peers as one of the screen's greatest actors. In 1999 the American Film Institute ranked Tracy as the 9th greatest male star of Classic Hollywood Cinema. I have several new film catalogs to come, so stay tuned.

      11/10/18 - Today I added the last three episodes of Season 5 and the first twenty-seven available episodes of Season 6 to the My Three Sons Library. My Three Sons (1960-1972) was an American sitcom. The series ran from 1960 to 1965 on ABC, and moved to CBS until the end of its run on April 13, 1972. My Three Sons chronicles the life of widower and aeronautical engineer Steven Douglas (Fred MacMurray) as he raises his three sons. The series originally featured William Frawley as the boys' live-in maternal grandfather and maid, William Michael Francis "Bub" O'Casey. William Demarest, playing Bub's brother, "Charley", replaced Frawley in 1965 due to Frawley's illness. In September 1965, eldest son Mike (Tim Considine) married, and his character was written out of the show. To keep the emphasis on "three sons", original youngest son Chip's friend Ernie was adopted. In the program's later years, Steven Douglas remarried and adopted his new wife's young daughter Dorothy ("Dodie") (Dawn Lyn). This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs. I still have lots of episodes from the remaining 5 seasons to add, so many more to come! The added episodes are all of them on the last page of the library.

      11/9/18 - Today I created a new Gilligan's Island Library with the first twenty-seven available episodes of the series. In Gilligan's Island (1964–1992) the two-man crew of the charter boat SS Minnow and five passengers on a "three-hour tour" from Honolulu run into a tropical storm and are shipwrecked on an uncharted island somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. Stars: Bob Denver, Alan Hale Jr., Jim Backus, Natalie Schafer, Tina Louise, Russell Johnson and Dawn Wells. I started looking for episodes of this series soon after I first created the site im 2010 with no luck - but have not looked for them in the past few years. I now have all but 3 of the complete series episodes bookmarked, so many more to come! The new libray is located in the Comedy Shows Catalog, and also in the Bob Denver Catalog, which is also available in the Comedy Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      11/7/18 - Today I created a new Lancer Library with all twenty-six episodes of Season 1 to start. Lancer is an American Western series that aired Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. (EST) on CBS from September 24, 1968, to June 23, 1970. The series stars Andrew Duggan, James Stacy and Wayne Maunder as a father with two half-brother sons, an arrangement similar to the more successful Bonanza on NBC. Duggan stars as the less than admirable Murdoch Lancer, the patriarch of the Lancer family. Stacy appears as half-Mexican gunslinger Johnny Madrid Lancer. Wayne Maunder was cast as Scott Lancer, the educated older son (though he is younger than Stacy) and a veteran of the Union Army, in contrast to Stacy's role of former gunslinger. Paul Brinegar also appeared as Jelly Hoskins, a series regular from season two after making a one off guest appearance during the first season. The new libray is located in the Western Shows Catalog. I have all 51 episodes of the series bookmarked, so more to come!

      11/4/18 - Last night I stumbled across a cache of fifteen Humphrey Bogart Films. Since I have always considered that library to me a bit anemic, I was delighted to get a chance to expand it. Humphrey DeForest Bogart (December 25, 1899 – January 14, 1957) was an American film and stage actor. His performances in numerous films from the Classical Hollywood era made him a cultural icon. In 1999, the American Film Institute ranked him as the greatest male star of American cinema. Bogart began acting in Broadway shows after World War I. After the Wall Street Crash of 1929, he began working in films, mostly playing gangsters. He was highly praised for his work in The Petrified Forest (1936). Bogart had originated the role of Duke Mantee in the 1935 Broadway production, but Warner Bros. wanted to cast the then much better known Edward G. Robinson for the film adaptation; however Leslie Howard, who played the protagonist in both the play and the film, insisted on Bogart being given the part. His breakthrough came in 1941 when his performances in High Sierra and The Maltese Falcon made him a star. The added films are:
      Petrified Forest (1936)
      Marked Woman (1937)
      Black Legion (1937)
      The Amazing Dr. Clitterhouse (1938)

      Chain Lightning (1950)
      Deadline USA (1952)

      11/3/18 - Today I added all seventeen episodes of Season 4 to The High Chaparral library. This completes the library until I find the 4 missing episodes of the series. The High Chaparral (1965–1969) revolved around "Big John" Cannon, a rancher living in the dry desert of southern Arizona Territory, near the Mexican border in Apache Indian country in the 1870s. He runs the ranch, called "The High Chaparral" (named for a local plant/brush), with his brother Buck and John's son Billy Blue (known as "Blue Boy"). Stars: Leif Erickson, Cameron Mitchell, Henry Darrow. This library is located in the Western Shows Catalog.

      10/30/18 - Today I added eighteen skits too the Carol Burnett Show Skits Library, which doubles the size of the library. The Carol Burnett Show was an American variety/sketch comedy television show starring Carol Burnett, Harvey Korman, Vicki Lawrence, Lyle Waggoner, and Tim Conway. It originally ran on CBS from September 11, 1967, to March 29, 1978, for 278 episodes, and again with 9 episodes in the fall of 1991. The series won 25 prime-time Emmy Awards, was ranked No. 16 on TV Guide's 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time in 2002, and in 2007 was listed as one of Time magazine's "100 Best TV Shows of All Time. These are indvidual skits from the series and is located in the Carol Burnett Catalog which can be accessed via the Whacky Dames Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      10/28/18 - Today I added seven episodes to my Your Hit Parade Library. Your Hit Parade was an American radio and television music program that was broadcast from 1935 to 1955 on radio, and seen from 1950 to 1959 on television. It was sponsored by American Tobacco's Lucky Strike cigarettes. During this 24-year run, the show had 19 orchestra leaders and 52 singers or groups. Each Saturday evening, the program offered the most popular and bestselling songs of the week. The format involved a presentation of the top 15 songs. Later, a countdown with fanfares led to the top three finalists, with the number one song for the finale. This is the first time I have added episodes to this library since 2015. They have started appearing on the Internet Archive in the past few days, so I hope to find more as time goes by. Located in the Musical Programs Catalog. The added episodes are dated:

      10/27/18 - Today I added twenty-seven episodes to The Saint library. The Saint (1962–1969) was an ITC mystery spy thriller television series that aired in the UK on ITV. It was based on the literary character Simon Templar (played by Roger Moore). Templar was essentially a Robin Hood who stole from criminals, but kept the money. His nemesis was Chief Inspector Claude Teal who considered Templar a common criminal no matter whom he stole from. Roger Moore had earlier tried to buy the production rights to the Saint books himself and was delighted to be able to play the part. Moore eventually became co-owner of the show with Robert S. Baker when the show moved to color and the production credit became Bamore Productions. Most of the wardrobe Moore wore in the series was his own. He was reportedly offered the role of 007 at least twice during the run of the series, but had to turn it down both times owing to his television commitments. In one early episode of the series (titled 'Luella'), another character actually mistakes Templar for Bond. This library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs. The added episodes are:

      10/25/18 - Today I added all twenty-four episodes of Season 2 to The Partridge Family Library. The Partridge Family was an American musical sitcom starring Shirley Jones and featuring David Cassidy. Jones played a widowed mother, and Cassidy played the oldest of her five children who embarked on a music career. It ran from September 25, 1970, until March 23, 1974, on the ABC network as part of a Friday-night lineup, and had subsequent runs in syndication. The family was loosely based on the real-life musical family The Cowsills, a popular band in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The new library is located in the Musical and Variety and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs. I recently found a large cache of these episodes, so more to come.

      10/22/18 - Today I added twelve episodes too the Howdy Doody Show library. The Howdy Doody Show (1947–1960) was an American children's television program (with circus and Western frontier themes) that was aired on the NBC network from December 27, 1947 until September 24, 1960. Buffalo Bob Smith hosted the show, and Howdy Doody and the gang entertained the kids in the Peanut Gallery. Also featured were popular characters Phineas T. Bluster (the Mayor of Doodytown), Clarabell the Clown, Princess Summerfall Winterspring, and Chief Thunderthud. This library is located in the Kid Shows Catalog. These episodes were showing up regularly on the Internet Archives for a number of months, but since these were added about a month ago, there have been no new ones, so I suspect that this library os complete for the time being. The added episodes are dated:
      1/6/53
      2/2/53
      4/1/53
      5/1/53
      5/26/53
      6/1/53
      7/2/53
      8/3/53
      12/24/53
      2/4/54
      4/13/54
      6/7/54
      I also added two episodes featuring guests, Lauren Bacall and Shirley Jones, too the The Danny Kaye Show library. The Danny Kaye Show was an American variety show, hosted by the stage and screen star Danny Kaye. It premiered in black-and-white switching to color broadcasts in the fall of 1965. At the time, Kaye was at the height of his popularity. He starred in a string of successful 1940s and '50's musical comedy features, made numerous personal appearances at venues such as the London Palladium. These episodes are in chronological order - the show titles are based on the special guest for each episode. This library is a water-shed for yours truely - I was a huge fan of the show, which debuted in 1963, the year I made the trasnsistion from Junior High to High School. I watched it religiously. This library is located in the The Danny Kaye Catalog, which is available in the Comedy Shows Catalog, Feature Films Catalogs, and the Catalog of Stars.

      10/21/18 - Today I created a new The World at War library with all twenty-six episodes of this British documentary series. The World at War (1973–74) television documentary series chronicled the events of the Second World War. It was at the time of its completion in 1973, at a cost of £900,000 (equivalent to £10,000,000 in 2016), the most expensive factual series ever made. It was produced by Jeremy Isaacs, narrated by Laurence Olivier and included music composed by Carl Davis. The World at War attracted widespread acclaim and is now regarded as a landmark in British television history. The producer Jeremy Isaacs was considered ahead of his time in resurrecting studies of military history. Among many other aspects, the series focused on a portrayal of the experience of the conflict: of how life and death throughout the war years affected soldiers, sailors and airmen, civilians, concentration camp inmates and other victims of the war. The new library is located in the War on Film and the News/Documentary/Reality Programs catalogs.

      10/20/18 - Earlier this week I found the twenty-six missing episodes of the Green Acres library and added them to complete the library wth all 170 episodes included. Green Acres is about Oliver Wendell Douglas (Eddie Albert), an erudite New York City attorney, fulfilling his dream to be a farmer, and Lisa Douglas (Eva Gabor), his glamorous Hungarian wife, who is dragged unwillingly from an upscale Manhattan penthouse apartment and the city life she adores to a ramshackle farm. The theme tune, as with those of the show's rural cousins, explains the basic premise of the show. At the end of the opening sequence, Albert and Gabor strike a pose in parody of Grant Wood's 1930 painting American Gothic. This the first time I have added to the series in several years. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas and Comedy Shows Catalogs. The added episodss are:
      Best Laid Plans
      Wedding Anniversary?
      Hungarian Curse
      The Luau?
      Rummage Sale
      The Fire Chief
      Husband for Eleanor
      The Blue Feather
      Hooterville to Pixley
      Birthday Gift
      A Prize
      Oliver Wendell Holmes
      His Ingenuity
      Lisa's Mudder
      Love a Countess
      Tale of a Tail
      Big Shrunken Head
      The Road
      Schoolgirl Crush
      Ralph's Nuptials
      Trapped
      Bundle of Joy
      The Ex-Con
      Refund Fraud
      The Picnic
      The Beeping Rock

      10/18/18 - Today I added thirteen episodes to the Adventures of Jim Bowie library. The Adventures of Jim Bowie is an American Western television series that aired on ABC from 1956 to 1958. The series starred Scott Forbes as the real-life adventurer, Jim Bowie. The series initially portrayed Bowie as an outdoors-man, riding his horse through the wilderness near his home in Opelousas where he would stumble across someone needing his assistance. He was aided by his ever-present weapon the Bowie Knife, something he designed in the first episode - The Birth of the Blade. Although Bowie used the blade quite a bit in early episodes, its prominence was downplayed as the show went on. Gradually the series shifted from the country to the city, having Bowie instead spend the majority of his time in New Orleans (beginning in Episode 15). He was frequently shown looking to invest his money in real estate, or coming to the aid of someone who had been swindled. Story lines focused on the exploits of Bowie before he moved to Texas (then part of Mexico), and his death at the Alamo in 1836. During the series' two season run, Bowie encountered many historical figures of the era, such as President Andrew Jackson, Jefferson Davis, John James Audubon, Sam Houston, and Davy Crockett. The library is available in the Western Shows and the Historical Drama Catalogs. The added episodes are the last one on the first library page and all of them on the second page. This is the first time I have added episodes to this series since February of 2016. Hope to find more.

      10/15/18 - Today I restored my Sanford and Son library, which vanished a while back. Sanford and Son was an American sitcom that ran on the NBC television network from January 14, 1972, to March 25, 1977. It was based on the BBC Television program Steptoe and Son. Known for its edgy racial humor, running gags and catchphrases, the series was adapted by Norman Lear and considered NBC's answer to CBS's All in the Family. Sanford and Son has been hailed as the precursor to many other African American sitcoms. It was a ratings hit throughout its six-season run. While the role of Fred G. Sanford was known for his bigotry and cantankerousness, the role of Lamont Sanford was that of a conscientious peacemaker. At times, both characters would involve themselves in schemes, usually as a means of earning cash quickly in order to pay off their various debts. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas and Comedy Shows Catalogs. I now have the bulk of the series episodes bookmarked, so I will be expanding the library over the next few months.

      10/13/18 - Today I added all twenty-four episodes to Season 2 of the In Search of... Library with twenty-four episodes to start. In Search of... (1977-1982) was a television series devoted to mysterious phenomena. It was created after the success of three one-hour TV documentaries produced by creator Alan Landsburg: In Search of Ancient Astronauts in 1973 (based on the book Chariots of the Gods?), In Search of Ancient Mysteries and The Outer Space Connection, both in 1975. All three featured narration by Rod Serling, who was the initial choice to host the spin-off show. After Serling's death, Leonard Nimoy was selected to be the host. This library is in the News/Documentary/Reality Programs Catalog.

      10/9/18 - Today, more or less on a whim, I went looking for George Burns and Gracie Allen Films and was surprised to find thirteen of them! Three are Feature Films, the other 10 are Theatrical Shorts based on their vaudville act. Burns and Allen was an American comedy duo consisting of George Burns and his wife, Gracie Allen. They worked together as a successful comedy team that entertained vaudeville, film, radio, and television audiences for over forty years. The duo met in 1922 and married in 1926. Burns was the straight man and Allen was a silly, addle-headed woman. The duo starred in a number of movies, and many theatrical shorts. The new library s located in both the George Burns and the Gracie Allen Catalogs.

      10/8/18 - Today I added twenty-five clips to the Candid Camera library. Up to this point I have never had more than 2 full episodes, and that was the whole library. I recently found a cache of clips from the show, and will be expanding the library going forward. Candid Camera was a popular and long running American hidden camera reality television series. Versions of the show appeared on television from 1948 until 2014. Originally created and produced by Allen Funt, it often featured practical jokes, and initially began on radio as The Candid Microphone on June 28, 1947. The show involved concealed cameras filming ordinary people being confronted with unusual situations, sometimes involving trick props, such as a desk with drawers that pop open when one is closed or a car with a hidden extra gas tank. When the joke was revealed, victims would be told the show's catchphrase, "Smile, you're on Candid Camera." This library is located in the News/Documentary/Reality Programs Catalog.

      10/6/18 - Today I added all twenty-seven of the available episodes of Seaso 2 to the That Girl library. That Girl was an American sitcom that ran on ABC from 1966 to 1971. It starred Marlo Thomas as the title character Ann Marie, an aspiring (but only sporadically employed) actress, who moves from her hometown of Brewster, New York, to try to make it big in New York City. Ann has to take a number of offbeat "temp" jobs to support herself in between her various auditions and bit parts. Ted Bessell played her boyfriend Donald Hollinger, a writer for Newsview Magazine; Lew Parker and Rosemary DeCamp played Lew Marie and Helen Marie, her concerned parents. Bernie Kopell, Ruth Buzzi and Reva Rose played Ann and Donald's friends. That Girl was developed by writers Bill Persky and Sam Denoff, who had served as head writers on The Dick Van Dyke Show (with which Thomas' father, Danny Thomas, was closely associated) earlier in the 1960s. This library is located in the Whacky Dames Catalog, which accessed via the Comedy Shows Catalog. Added episodes are all of them on the 2nd page of the library.

      10/5/18 - Today I added all twenty-five available episodes of Season 3 to The High Chaparral library. The High Chaparral (1965–1969) revolved around "Big John" Cannon, a rancher living in the dry desert of southern Arizona Territory, near the Mexican border in Apache Indian country in the 1870s. He runs the ranch, called "The High Chaparral" (named for a local plant/brush), with his brother Buck and John's son Billy Blue (known as "Blue Boy"). Stars: Leif Erickson, Cameron Mitchell, Henry Darrow. This library is located in the Western Shows Catalog.

      10/3/18 - Today I added twenty-three episodes from Seasons 1 and 2 to the The Rat Patrol library. The Rat Patrol (1966-1968) was an American action and adventure television series that aired on ABC. The show follows the exploits of four Allied soldiers — three Americans and one Briton — who are part of a long-range desert patrol group in the North African campaign during World War II. Their mission: "to attack, harass and wreak havoc on Field Marshal Rommel's vaunted Afrika Korps". Stars: Christopher George, Gary Raymond, Eric Braeden. This library is located in the Action and Adventure Catalog. The added episodes are all of them on the 2nd page of the library.

      10/1/18 - Today I restored three episodes and added three more to the Celebrity Roasts library. In 1949, the New York Friars Club held their first roast, with Maurice Chevalier as the guest of honor. The final few seasons of the television show Kraft Music Hall, from 1968 to 1971, included broadcasts of the Friars Club Roast; the celebrities roasted included Johnny Carson, Milton Berle, Jack Benny, Don Rickles, and Jerry Lewis. Dean Martin hosted a series of roasts on television in 1974 as part of the final season of his self-titled variety show. After the show was cancelled, NBC decided to schedule a series of The Dean Martin Celebrity Roast specials from the former MGM Grand Hotel and Casino (now Bally's Las Vegas) in the Ziegfeld Room; these were recorded and aired approximately once every two months from late 1974 to early 1979, and another three were produced in 1984. From 1998 to 2002, the cable channel Comedy Central produced and broadcast the annual roast of the New York Friars Club, with roasts of the celebrities Drew Carey, Jerry Stiller, Rob Reiner, Hugh Hefner, and Chevy Chase. Based on the success of these roasts, Comedy Central began hosting their own roasts on an approximately annual basis, under the name Comedy Central Roast. The first roastee was Denis Leary in 2003. This library includes episodes of several of these programs and is located in the Funny Guys Catalog. The added/restored episodes include those of:

      Kirk Douglas (1973)
      Lucille Ball (1975)
      Sammy Davis Jr. (1975)
      Richard Pryor (1977)
      Jeff Foxworthy (2005)
      Cheech and Chong (2008)

      9/28/18 - Today I added the twenty-three avaliable episodes to Season 4 of The Mary Tyler Moore Show library. Mary Tyler Moore (December 29, 1936 – January 25, 2017) was an American actress, primarily known for her roles in television sitcoms, including The Mary Tyler Moore Show (1970–77), in which she starred as Mary Richards, a thirty-something single woman who worked as a local news producer in Minneapolis, and, earlier, The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961–66), in which she played Laura Petrie, a former dancer turned Westchester homemaker, wife and mother. Her notable film work includes 1967's Thoroughly Modern Millie and 1980's Ordinary People, in which she played a role that was very different from the television characters she had portrayed, and for which she was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress. The Mary Tyler Moore Show library is located in the Mary Tyler Moore Catalog, which is available in the Whacky Dames Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. The added episodes are all of them on the 4th page of the library. I have the remaining available episodes of Season 5 yet to post, so more to come!

      9/27/18 - Tonight I did a lttle work on the "grandfather library" of the entire site, The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet library. The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet was an American sitcom, airing on ABC from October 3, 1952, through March 26, 1966, starring the real-life Nelson family. After a long run on radio, the show was brought to television, where it continued its success, initially running simultaneously on radio and television. The series starred Ozzie Nelson and his wife, singer Harriet Nelson (nιe Snyder, professionally), and their young sons, David and Eric "Ricky" Nelson. This library, which has not been added too in over a year, was the first substantial one that I decided to build. With 14 seasons, it is also one of the largest libraries on the site, so adding nine individual episodes that span several seasons was a very challenging task. I have never actually counted how many episodes are in the current library, but I am confident that at this point I am within 60 episodes of completing the series. The added episodes, which are spread out throughout Seasons 3 through 11, are:

      David's Career
      Too Many Ties
      The Witness
      The Testimonial
      The Clubhouse
      The Safe
      Full House
      Weekend Vacation
      The Goat

      9/26/18 - Today I restored thirty-four episodes from Seasons 1 and 2 to the The Saint library. The Saint (1962–1969) was an ITC mystery spy thriller television series that aired in the UK on ITV. It was based on the literary character Simon Templar (played by Roger Moore). Templar was essentially a Robin Hood who stole from criminals, but kept the money. His nemesis was Chief Inspector Claude Teal who considered Templar a common criminal no matter whom he stole from. Roger Moore had earlier tried to buy the production rights to the Saint books himself and was delighted to be able to play the part. Moore eventually became co-owner of the show with Robert S. Baker when the show moved to color and the production credit became Bamore Productions. Most of the wardrobe Moore wore in the series was his own. He was reportedly offered the role of 007 at least twice during the run of the series, but had to turn it down both times owing to his television commitments. In one early episode of the series (titled 'Luella'), another character actually mistakes Templar for Bond. This library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs. I now have episodes bookmarked for Seasons 3, 4, 5 and 6 - so more to come! The restored episodes are:
      The Careful Terrorist
      The Covetous Headsman
      The Pearls of Peace
      The Arrow of God
      The Element of Doubt

      9/24/18 - Today I added twenty-seven episodes to Season 4 of The Phil Silvers Show Library. This completes the library with all 143 episodes of the full series. The Phil Silvers Show, originally titled You'll Never Get Rich, was a sitcom which ran on CBS from 1955 to 1959 for 142 episodes, plus a 1959 special. The series starred Phil Silvers as Master Sergeant Ernest G. Bilko of the United States Army. The series was created and largely written by Nat Hiken, and won three consecutive Emmy Awards for Best Comedy Series. The show is sometimes titled Sergeant Bilko or simply Bilko in reruns, and is very often referred to by these names, both on-screen and by viewers. The show's success transformed Silvers from a journeyman comedian into a star, and writer-producer Hiken from a highly regarded behind-the-scenes comedy writer into a publicly recognized creator. This library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog, and the Catalog of Stars. The added episodes are:
      Gold Fever
      Bilko's Vampire
      Deluxe Tours
      Potato Sack King
      Bilko vs Covington

      9/23/18 - Today I created a new The Partridge Family Library with all twenty-five episodes of Season 1 to start. The Partridge Family was an American musical sitcom starring Shirley Jones and featuring David Cassidy. Jones played a widowed mother, and Cassidy played the oldest of her five children who embarked on a music career. It ran from September 25, 1970, until March 23, 1974, on the ABC network as part of a Friday-night lineup, and had subsequent runs in syndication. The family was loosely based on the real-life musical family The Cowsills, a popular band in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The new library is located in the Musical and Variety and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs. I recently found a large cache of these episodes, so more to come.

      9/22/18 - Today I created a new The Ghost Busters Library. The Ghost Busters (1975) was a short-lived (only 15 episodes) live-action children's sitcom that ran in 1975, about a team of bumbling detectives who would investigate ghostly occurrences. Fifteen episodes were produced. The show reunited Forrest Tucker and Larry Storch in roles similar to their characters in F Troop. The series was unrelated to the 1984 film Ghostbusters (though Columbia Pictures did pay Filmation for a license to use the name). Like the film, the series spawned its own animated sequel in 1986. The primary humor of the series was slapstick, with scenes centered on the perpetual bumbling of the characters, good and evil alike. The series also made references to classic cinema; the names "Spencer" and "Tracy" were taken from the famous actor Spencer Tracy, while the name Kong – not given to the gorilla – was a clear homage to King Kong. This library contains the full series and is located in the Funny Guys, the Kid Shows and the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalogs.

      9/21/18 - Today I restored the eighteen remaining available episodes to The Big Valley library. This completes the library with all but 2 of the series episodes included. The Big Valley was an American western television series which ran on ABC. The show starred Barbara Stanwyck, as the widow of a wealthy nineteenth century California rancher. The TV series was based loosely on the Hill Ranch, which was located at the western edge of Calaveras County, not far from Stockton. This library is located in the Western Shows and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs. The restored episodes are:
      Fallen Hawk
      The Lost Treasure
      Court Martial
      Plunder!
      Turn of a Card
      Lady From Mesa
      Days of Grace
      Cage of Eagles
      In Silent Battle
      They Called Her Delilah
      Presumed Dead
      A Stranger Everywhere
      Hunter's Moon
      Top of the Stairs
      Joshua Watson
      The Secret
      The 25 Graves of Midas
      Alias Nellie Handley

      9/19/18 - Today I added nineteen episodes of Season 2 and the one episode I have found so far of Season 3 to the Loretta Young Show library. The Loretta Young Show (1953-1961) (originally known as Letter to Loretta) was an American anthology drama television series broadcast on Sunday nights on NBC. The series was hosted by actress Loretta Young, who also played the lead in various episodes. The program began with the premise that each drama was an answer to a question asked in her fan mail.. The title was changed to The Loretta Young Show during the first season, and the "letter" concept was dropped altogether at the end of the second season. I have episodes of Season 4 and 7 yet to post, so more to come. The new library is located in the Television Drama Catalog and Loretta Young Catalog Catalog, which is accessed via the Catalog of Stars.

      9/18/18 - Today I added eleven episodes to the Brian Henderson's Bandstand Library. These have been popping up on the Internet Archive for several months. Lately, however, there have no new ones for about 6 weeks so it is possible that this library is complete. Henderson hosted the Australian version of Bandstand from 1958 until 1972. Henderson also holds the record for the longest-serving television news presenter, having read either the weekend or the weeknight news on Sydney station TCN-9 from January 1957 until his retirement in late November 2002. From his first news broadcast in 1957, the tag-line Henderson used to sign off at the end of every newscast was either "...and that's the way it is" or "the way it is", similar to Walter Cronkite. These just keep showing up so I assume there will be more to come. This library is located in the Bandstand Catalog, which can be found in the Musical and Variety Catalog. The added episodes are:
      ?/1960
      February 3, 1962
      ?/1963 II
      April 10, 1963
      C&W Special (1963)
      November 23, 1963
      July 29, 1967
      August 19, 1967
      September 2, 1967
      October 7, 1967
      October 21, 1967

      9/17/18 - Today I posted thirty-one episodes of Season 5 to the My Three Sons Library. My Three Sons (1960-1972) was an American sitcom. The series ran from 1960 to 1965 on ABC, and moved to CBS until the end of its run on April 13, 1972. My Three Sons chronicles the life of widower and aeronautical engineer Steven Douglas (Fred MacMurray) as he raises his three sons. The series originally featured William Frawley as the boys' live-in maternal grandfather and maid, William Michael Francis "Bub" O'Casey. William Demarest, playing Bub's brother, "Charley", replaced Frawley in 1965 due to Frawley's illness. In September 1965, eldest son Mike (Tim Considine) married, and his character was written out of the show. To keep the emphasis on "three sons", original youngest son Chip's friend Ernie was adopted. In the program's later years, Steven Douglas remarried and adopted his new wife's young daughter Dorothy ("Dodie") (Dawn Lyn). This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs. I still have lots of episodes from the remaining 6 seasons to add, so many more to come!

      9/13/18 - Today I added fourteen episodes to the Howdy Doody Show library. The Howdy Doody Show (1947–1960) was an American children's television program (with circus and Western frontier themes) that was aired on the NBC network from December 27, 1947 until September 24, 1960. Buffalo Bob Smith hosted the show, and Howdy Doody and the gang entertained the kids in the Peanut Gallery. Also featured were popular characters Phineas T. Bluster (the Mayor of Doodytown), Clarabell the Clown, Princess Summerfall Winterspring, and Chief Thunderthud. This library is located in the Kid Shows Library. These have been showing up in droves on the Internet Archive over the past few months, so there will probably be more soon. The added episodes are:
      7/4/50
      7/10/50
      8/3/50
      10/2/50
      11/1/50
      4/2/51
      5/2/51
      10/17/51
      11/1/51
      6/2/52
      7/1/52
      10/1/52
      12/1/52
      12/31/52

      9/12/18 - Today I posted the eight available episodes to Season one of the Barney Miller library. Barney Miller was an American sitcom set in a New York City Police Department police station in Greenwich Village. The series originally was broadcast from January 23, 1975, to May 20, 1982, on ABC. The series takes place almost entirely within the confines of the detectives' squad room and Captain Barney Miller's adjoining office of New York City's fictional 12th Precinct, located in Greenwich Village. A typical episode would feature the detectives of the 12th bringing in several complainants and/or suspects to the squad room. Usually, two or three separate subplots are in a given episode, with different officers dealing with different crimes. Once a year, an episode would feature one or more of the detectives outside of the walls of the precinct, either on a stakeout or at one of their homes. I had never found any Season 1 episodes in the past - I hope to find more, and to expand to more of the 8 Seasons of the series. This library is located in the Funny Guys Catalogs, and, since it occasionally deals with dramatic situations, it is also found in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

      9/11/18 - Today I added the remaining fifteen available episodes of Season 2 to the Laredo Library which completes the library (until I find more of the missing ones) with 46 of the 56 episodes that make up the full series. Laredo (1965–1967) was an American Western television series that aired on NBC and starred Neville Brand, William Smith, Peter Brown, and Philip Carey as Texas Rangers. It is set on the Mexican border about Laredo in Webb County in south Texas. The program presented fifty-six episodes in color. It was produced by Universal Television. The series has a very strong comedic element, but, like another NBC series that premiered in 1965, The Wackiest Ship in the Army, it was an hour in length, had no laugh track, and characters were not infrequently killed in it, thus going against three unofficial rules for sitcoms at the time. I have never been able to find any of the missing 10 episodes, but I will keep looking. This library is located in the Western Shows Catalog. The added episodes are the last 15 on page 2 of the library.

      9/8/18 - Today I restored all thirty episodes of Season 2 of the The Man from U.N.C.L.E. library. The Man from U.N.C.L.E. was an American television series that was broadcast on NBC from September 22, 1964, to January 15, 1968. It followed secret agents, played by Robert Vaughn and David McCallum, who worked for a secret international counter espionage and law enforcement agency called U.N.C.L.E. Originally, co-creator Sam Rolfe wanted to leave the meaning of U.N.C.L.E. ambiguous so it could refer to either "Uncle Sam" or the United Nations. Concerns by the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer legal department about using "U.N." for commercial purposes resulted in the producers' clarification that U.N.C.L.E. was an acronym for the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement. Each episode had an "acknowledgement" to the U.N.C.L.E. in the end titles. This library is located in the Action and Adventure and Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs. At one point, a year or so ago, I had all of the episodes - but they started disappearing almost immediately. Over the past few months I have been restoring the library. This addition of Season 2 completes the library with all 105 episodes intact.

      9/6/18 - Today I created a new That Girl library with the first twenty-three available episodes of Season 1 to start. That Girl was an American sitcom that ran on ABC from 1966 to 1971. It starred Marlo Thomas as the title character Ann Marie, an aspiring (but only sporadically employed) actress, who moves from her hometown of Brewster, New York, to try to make it big in New York City. Ann has to take a number of offbeat "temp" jobs to support herself in between her various auditions and bit parts. Ted Bessell played her boyfriend Donald Hollinger, a writer for Newsview Magazine; Lew Parker and Rosemary DeCamp played Lew Marie and Helen Marie, her concerned parents. Bernie Kopell, Ruth Buzzi and Reva Rose played Ann and Donald's friends. That Girl was developed by writers Bill Persky and Sam Denoff, who had served as head writers on The Dick Van Dyke Show (with which Thomas' father, Danny Thomas, was closely associated) earlier in the 1960s. The new library is located in the Whacky Dames Catalog, which accessed via the Comedy Shows Catalog.

      9/2/16 - Today I added the twenty-four available episodes to Season 2 of The High Chaparral library. The High Chaparral (1965–1969) revolved around "Big John" Cannon, a rancher living in the dry desert of southern Arizona Territory, near the Mexican border in Apache Indian country in the 1870s. He runs the ranch, called "The High Chaparral" (named for a local plant/brush), with his brother Buck and John's son Billy Blue (known as "Blue Boy"). Stars: Leif Erickson, Cameron Mitchell, Henry Darrow. This library is located in the Western Shows Catalog.

      9/1/18 - Today I expanded the Monty Python Sketches library by adding twenty-one sketches, which increases the size of the library by 250%. Monty Python’s Flying Circus (known during the final series as just Monty Python) is a British sketch comedy series created by the comedy group Monty Python and broadcast by the BBC from 1969 to 1974. The shows were composed of surreality, risquι or innuendo-laden humour, sight gags and observational sketches without punchlines. It also featured Terry Gilliam's animations, often sequenced or merged with live action. These are individual sketches from the series. This library is located in the Monty Python Catalog, which can be accessed via the Comedy Shows and the Sketch Comedy Catalogs. The added episode are the last 7 on page 1 and all of them on page 2 of the library.

      8/31/18 - Today I added twelve episodes to the Howdy Doody Show library. The Howdy Doody Show (1947–1960) was an American children's television program (with circus and Western frontier themes) that was aired on the NBC network from December 27, 1947 until September 24, 1960. Buffalo Bob Smith hosted the show, and Howdy Doody and the gang entertained the kids in the Peanut Gallery. Also featured were popular characters Phineas T. Bluster (the Mayor of Doodytown), Clarabell the Clown, Princess Summerfall Winterspring, and Chief Thunderthud. This library is located in the Kid Shows Library. The added episodes are:

      11/16/58
      Last Episode - 9/24/60

      8/30/18 - Today I added fourteen episodes to Seasons 6 and 7 of the Mary Tyler Moore Show library Mary Tyler Moore (December 29, 1936 – January 25, 2017) was an American actress, primarily known for her roles in television sitcoms, including The Mary Tyler Moore Show (1970–77), in which she starred as Mary Richards, a thirty-something single woman who worked as a local news producer in Minneapolis, and, earlier, The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961–66), in which she played Laura Petrie, a former dancer turned Westchester homemaker, wife and mother. Her notable film work includes 1967's Thoroughly Modern Millie and 1980's Ordinary People, in which she played a role that was very different from the television characters she had portrayed, and for which she was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress. The Mary Tyler Moore Show library is located in the Mary Tyler Moore Catalog, which is available in the Whacky Dames Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. I have finally found episodes from Season 4 and will start adding them, and the remaining available episodes of Season 5, in the near future. The added episode are:

      Teds Temptation
      Hail the Conquering Gordy
      Murray Ghosts For Ted

      8/27/18 - Today I read of the passing of playwright, Neil Simon, and realized that I had a library on the site that derived from one of his plays - The Odd Couple. I already had the complete Hulu collection from the series, but there were quite a few of the episodes that were left out on Hulu, so to honor his memory, I went looking for the missing episodes from other sources and found thirteen of them. The success of The Odd Couple film in 1968 was the basis for the 1970–75 ABC television sitcom, produced by Garry Marshall and starring Tony Randall as Felix and Jack Klugman as Oscar. Klugman was familiar with the role as he had replaced Walter Matthau in the original Broadway run. Neil Simon originally disapproved of this adaptation, but by the series' final season, he reassessed the show positively to the point of appearing in a cameo role. This library is located in the Garry Marshall Catalog which is available via the Catalog of Stars and the Comedy Show Catalog, where The Odd Couple library also resides separately. The added episodes are:
      Gloria Moves In
      Last Tango
      That Was No Lady
      The Songwriter
      Felix Directs
      The Moonlighter
      Vocal Girl Makes Good
      A Different Drummer
      The Insomniacs
      The Frog
      The Odd Candidate
      The Subway Story
      Two on the Aisle

      8/25/18 - Today I added the fifteen more episodes to Season 2 of the The Phil Silvers Show Library. The Phil Silvers Show, originally titled You'll Never Get Rich, was a sitcom which ran on CBS from 1955 to 1959 for 142 episodes, plus a 1959 special. The series starred Phil Silvers as Master Sergeant Ernest G. Bilko of the United States Army. The series was created and largely written by Nat Hiken, and won three consecutive Emmy Awards for Best Comedy Series. The show is sometimes titled Sergeant Bilko or simply Bilko in reruns, and is very often referred to by these names, both on-screen and by viewers. The show's success transformed Silvers from a journeyman comedian into a star, and writer-producer Hiken from a highly regarded behind-the-scenes comedy writer into a publicly recognized creator. I still have many Season 4 episodes yet to post, so more to come. This library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog, and the Catalog of Stars. The added episodes are:
      Some Sleep
      The Blue Blood
      Guardhouse
      Bing Crosby
      Politics
      Television Idea
      Rock 'n' Roll
      Black Magic
      Bilko Goes South
      Radio Station
      Marriage Broker
      Bilko Acres
      The Big Scandal
      Perfect Day
      Colonel Breaks Par

      8/22/18 - Today, after receiving a query about the show from regular correspondent on Facebook, I created a new Loretta Young Show library with the first twenty-one available episodes of the series. The Loretta Young Show (1953-1961) (originally known as Letter to Loretta) was an American anthology drama television series broadcast on Sunday nights on NBC. The series was hosted by actress Loretta Young, who also played the lead in various episodes. The program began with the premise that each drama was an answer to a question asked in her fan mail.. The title was changed to The Loretta Young Show during the first season, and the "letter" concept was dropped altogether at the end of the second season. I have over 30 episodes bookmarked, so more to come. The new library is located in the Television Drama Catalog and Loretta Young Catalog Catalog, which is accessed via the Catalog of Stars.

      8/21/18 - I was a little pressed for time today, so I decided to add five videos to my Joe E. Brown library, including three feature films and two television appearances. Joseph Evans Brown (July 28, 1891 – July 6, 1973) was an American actor and comedian, remembered for his amiable screen persona, comic timing, and enormous smile. He literally ran away and joined the circus when he was still small boy. Later, after three seasons as a professional baseball player, he returned to the circus, then went into Vaudeville and finally starred on Broadway. He moved to Broadway in the 1920s first appearing in the musical comedy Jim Jam Jems. In late 1928, Brown began making films, starting the next year with Warner Bros. By 1931, Joe E. Brown had become such a star that his name began to appear alone above the title of the movies in which he appeared. This library is located in the Comedy Shows Catalog. The added videos are:

      Painted Faces (1929)
      Elmer the Great (1933)
      When's Your Birthday? (1937)
      The Buick Circus Hour (1952)
      Joe E. Brown Show (1956)

      8/20/18 - Today I restored my The Addams Family library, with sixty-one of the sixty-four episodes that make up the full series. I had the full series at the beginning of last year and will keep looking for the 3 missing episodes. The Addams Family (1964-1966) - the ABC-TV network created The Addams Family television series based on Charles Addams's cartoon characters. During the original television run of The Addams Family television series, The New Yorker editor William Shawn refused to publish any Addams Family cartoons, though he continued to publish other Charles Addams cartoons. Shawn regarded his magazine as targeting a more refined readership and did not want it associated with characters who could be seen on television by just anybody. After Shawn's 1987 retirement, the characters were welcomed back to The New Yorker. The new library is from Daily Motion, which only had 55 of the 64 episodes that make up the complete series. I will try and find the rest of them. This library can be found in the Comedy Shows, Whacky Dames, Family Drama and Comedies and the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalogs.

      8/18/18 - Today I added the last thirty-two episodes (Seasons 7 and 8) to the Original US version of the Whose Line Is It Anyway? Library. Whose Line Is It Anyway? (1998-2002) was a short-form improvisational comedy TV show. The show consisted of a panel of four performers who created characters, scenes and songs on the spot, in the style of short-form improvisation games. These shows are from the Original US edition of the series which took over the franchise after the UK version finished it's 10 Season run in 1997. The host is Drew Cary. These videos are courtesy of CW Seed. I also have most of 4 Seasons from the current version of Whose Line?, which rebooted in 2005, so more to come. This library is located in the Whose Line Is It Anyway? Catalog which can be accessed via Comedy Shows Catalog and the Sketch Comedy Catalog.

      8/17/18 - Today I added the remaining seventeen episodes to Season 1 of the Laredo Library which completes the Season with all 30 episodes included. Laredo (1965–1967) was an American Western television series that aired on NBC and starred Neville Brand, William Smith, Peter Brown, and Philip Carey as Texas Rangers. It is set on the Mexican border about Laredo in Webb County in south Texas. The program presented fifty-six episodes in color. It was produced by Universal Television. The series has a very strong comedic element, but, like another NBC series that premiered in 1965, The Wackiest Ship in the Army, it was an hour in length, had no laugh track, and characters were not infrequently killed in it, thus going against three unofficial rules for sitcoms at the time. I have fifteen episodes of Season 2 left to post, so more to come. This library is located in the Western Shows Catalog. The added episodes are:
      Your Outfit
      Anybody Seen Billy?
      Question of Discipline
      Jinx
      Medal for Reese
      Above the Law
      That's Noway

      8/17/18 - Today I created a new The BP Super Show Library with seven episodes to start. The BP Super Show (1959-1970) was an Australian television series of loosely scheduled TV specials often of the variety show genre. It originally aired on ATN-7 in Sydney and GTV-9 in Melbourne, with the production of episodes varying between the two stations, and it also aired on other stations across Australia. It aired on the Nine Network after the formation of that network. Given the varied nature of the episodes, critical reception varied, but was often very positive, with a 1961 episode with Ella Fitzgerald (which is available in the library) being called by the Age newspaper "one of the best shows of its type presented on Melbourne TV". The new library is located in the Musical and Variety Catalog.

      8/14/18 - Today I added thirteen episodes to my Brian Henderson's Bandstand Library. Henderson hosted the Australian version of Bandstand from 1958 until 1972. Henderson also holds the record for the longest-serving television news presenter, having read either the weekend or the weeknight news on Sydney station TCN-9 from January 1957 until his retirement in late November 2002. From his first news broadcast in 1957, the tag-line Henderson used to sign off at the end of every newscast was either "...and that's the way it is" or "the way it is", similar to Walter Cronkite. These just keep showing up so I assume there will be more to come. This library is located in the Bandstand Catalog, which can be found in the Musical and Variety Catalog. The added episodes are:
      June 30, 1960
      June 8, 1963
      October 19, 1963

      June 17, 1967
      July 22, 1967

      8/12/18 - Today I posted the remaining nineteen available episodes of Season 4 to the My Three Sons Library. My Three Sons (1960-1972) was an American sitcom. The series ran from 1960 to 1965 on ABC, and moved to CBS until the end of its run on April 13, 1972. My Three Sons chronicles the life of widower and aeronautical engineer Steven Douglas (Fred MacMurray) as he raises his three sons. The series originally featured William Frawley as the boys' live-in maternal grandfather and maid, William Michael Francis "Bub" O'Casey. William Demarest, playing Bub's brother, "Charley", replaced Frawley in 1965 due to Frawley's illness. In September 1965, eldest son Mike (Tim Considine) married, and his character was written out of the show. To keep the emphasis on "three sons", original youngest son Chip's friend Ernie was adopted. In the program's later years, Steven Douglas remarried and adopted his new wife's young daughter Dorothy ("Dodie") (Dawn Lyn). This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs.

      8/13/18 - The last time I put up Big Valley episodes. a Facebook commentor asked me about The High Chaparral series and I promised to look into it. I was quite surprise to find and bookmark the bulk of the series (a half dozen or so are still missing). So tonight created a new The High Chaparral library with the twenty-six available episodes of the 1st Season to start. The High Chaparral (1965–1969) revolved around "Big John" Cannon, a rancher living in the dry desert of southern Arizona Territory, near the Mexican border in Apache Indian country in the 1870s. He runs the ranch, called "The High Chaparral" (named for a local plant/brush), with his brother Buck and John's son Billy Blue (known as "Blue Boy"). Stars: Leif Erickson, Cameron Mitchell, Henry Darrow. The new library is located in the Western Shows Catalog.

      8/11/18 - Today I restored the remaining fourteen avilable episodes to the Frasier library. Frasier (1993-2004) was an American sitcom that was broadcast on NBC for eleven seasons. The series was created as a spin-off of Cheers, continuing the story of psychiatrist Frasier Crane as he returned to his hometown of Seattle and started building a new life. Frasier stars Kelsey Grammer, David Hyde Pierce, John Mahoney, Jane Leeves, Peri Gilpin, and Moose/Enzo. This library is located in the Comedy Shows Catalog. I want to point out that only the first 2 episodes in this library were part of the original one. In fact the new library starts during Season 4 - everything I had before were from Season 4 and earlier. The added episodes are all of those on the 2nd library page.

      8/8/18 - Today I restored fifteen episodes to Season 3 of The Big Valley library. The Big Valley was an American western television series which ran on ABC. The show starred Barbara Stanwyck, as the widow of a wealthy nineteenth century California rancher. The TV series was based loosely on the Hill Ranch, which was located at the western edge of Calaveras County, not far from Stockton.

      8/7/18 - Today I added the last ten available episodes to the The Fall Guy library which completes the library untill I find more episodes of the series. In The Fall Guy (1981–1986), Lee Majors plays Colt Seavers, a Hollywood stunt man who moonlights as a bounty hunter. He uses his physical skills and knowledge of stunt effects (especially stunts involving cars or his large GMC pickup truck) to capture fugitives and criminals. He is accompanied by his cousin and stuntman-in-training Howie Munson (Douglas Barr) - who studied in Nashville, whom Colt frequently calls "Kid", and occasionally by fellow stunt performer Jody Banks (Heather Thomas). Since this is now the 3rd series starring Lee Majors (the other two are The Big Valley and The Six Million Dollar Man - in playlist form), I decided to also create a Lee Majors Catalog to house the 3 libraries. The new catalog is available in the Catalog of Stars. The new library is also available separately in the Mystery, Detectives and Crime Drama Catalog. The added episodea are:

Airing from 1978 to 1984, the original series starred Ricardo Montalbαn as Mr. Roarke, the enigmatic overseer of a mysterious island somewhere in the Pacific Ocean, where people from all walks of life could come and live out their fantasies, albeit for a price. Roarke was known for his white suit and cultured demeanor, and was initially accompanied by an energetic sidekick, Tattoo (played by Hervι Villechaize).

The series initially starred veteran movie supporting actor Ward Bond as the wagon master, later replaced upon his death by John McIntire, and Robert Horton as the scout, subsequently replaced by Scott Miller and Robert Fuller. The show chronicles the adventures of a wagon train as it makes its way from Missouri to California, and most episodes featured a guest star who played the part of the character for which the episode was titled.

The series focused on two main characters, Frank MacBride (Eddie Albert) and Pete Ryan (Robert Wagner). MacBride was a retired bunco cop who once arrested Ryan, a con man. After Ryan's release from prison, the two men opened a detective agency in Los Angeles. Their speciality involves the use of confidence tricks to trap criminals into revealing evidence of their guilt. Assisting them is another reformed con man, restaurant owner Malcolm Argos (Charlie Callas), and Maggie Philbin (Sharon Gless), Mac and Pete's naive-but-competent receptionist and assistant.

      7/30/18 - Today I decided to add a couple of series' too the Kid Shows Catalog. A friend mentioned too me that he had just seen the Mister Rogers Documentary that came out recently, asked if I had any episodes of the show. I confessed that I didn't but promised to look into it. So today I created a new Mister Rogers Neighborhood library with nineteen episodes to start. Mister Rogers Neighborhood (1963-2001) (sometimes shortened to Misterogers or simply Mister Rogers) was an American half-hour educational children's television series that was created and hosted by Fred Rogers. The series originated in 1963 as Misterogers on CBC Television, and was later re-branded in 1966 as Misterogers' Neighborhood and later Mister Rogers' Neighborhood on the regional Eastern Educational Network (EEN, a forerunner of today's American Public Television). Most of the episodes I found were from the later (American Public Television) version, but I managed to find 19 from the original series and am presenting them here. I also created a new Captain Kangeroo library with eight episodes to start. Captain Kangeroo (1955–1992) was an American children's television series that aired weekday mornings on the American television network CBS from October 3, 1955, until December 8, 1984, making it the longest-running nationally broadcast children's television program of its day. In 1986, the American Program Service (now American Public Television, Boston) integrated some newly produced segments into reruns of past episodes, distributing the newer version of the series on PBS until 1993. Starred Robert Keeshan as the Captain.

      7/28/18 - Today I added sixteen episodes (5 to Season 6, 11 to Season 7) to the Newhart Library. Newhart was an American sitcom that aired on CBS. The series starred Bob Newhart and Mary Frann as an author and wife who own and operate an inn located in a small, rural Vermont town that is home to many eccentric characters. TV Guide, TV Land, and A&E named the Newhart series finale as one of the most memorable in television history. This was the 2nd iteration of the Bob Newhart Show. This library can be found in the Comedy Shows Catalog and the Bob Newhart Catalog. I still have the bulk of the episodes of Seasons 7 and 8 of the series, so many more to come. The added episodes are all of them on the last (10th) library page.

      7/27/18 - Today I restored ten episodes to Season 3 of the Mission: Impossible library. Mission: Impossible was an American television series that was created and initially produced by Bruce Geller. It chronicles the missions of a team of secret government agents known as the Impossible Missions Force (IMF). In the first season, the team is led by Dan Briggs, played by Steven Hill; Jim Phelps, played by Peter Graves, takes charge for the remaining seasons. A hallmark of the series shows Briggs or Phelps receiving his instructions on a recording that then self-destructs, followed by the theme music composed by Lalo Schifrin. This library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs. The restored episodes are:

      The Play
      The Exchange
      Stefan Miklos

      7/26/18 - Today I added twenty-one episodes to the E! True Hollywood Story library. E! True Hollywood Story is an American documentary series on E! that deals with Hollywood celebrities, movies, TV shows, and public figures. Among the topics covered on the program include salacious re-tellings of Hollywood secrets, show-biz scandals, celebrity murders and mysteries, porn-star biographies, and "where-are-they-now?" investigations of former child stars. It frequently features in-depth interviews, actual courtroom footage, and dramatic reenactments. I have trouble actually thinking of this stuff as "Classic TV" - but have to admit that I used to watch it occassionally when the subject matter involved someone (or something) I was interested in. I don't plan to expand this library immediately because I also noticed that many of the videos have been posted in the last year - so my plan is to check back occasionally and see if the videos are still up and running before deidng whether or not to continue. The new library is in the News/Documentary/Reality Programs Catalog. The latest additions are all of the episodes on the 2nd library page.

      7/23/18 - Today I added eighteen more episodes to my Brian Henderson's Bandstand Library. Henderson hosted the Australian version of Bandstand from 1958 until 1972. Henderson also holds the record for the longest-serving television news presenter, having read either the weekend or the weeknight news on Sydney station TCN-9 from January 1957 until his retirement in late November 2002. From his first news broadcast in 1957, the tag-line Henderson used to sign off at the end of every newscast was either "...and that's the way it is" or "the way it is", similar to Walter Cronkite. These just keep showing up so I assume there will be more to come. This library is located in the Bandstand Catalog, which can be found in the Musical and Variety Catalog. The added episodes are:
      March 11, 1961
      May 26, 1962
      ?/1962 II

      7/22/18 - Today I added twelve episodes to Season 2 of The Phil Silvers Show Library. The Phil Silvers Show, originally titled You'll Never Get Rich, was a sitcom which ran on CBS from 1955 to 1959 for 142 episodes, plus a 1959 special. The series starred Phil Silvers as Master Sergeant Ernest G. Bilko of the United States Army. The series was created and largely written by Nat Hiken, and won three consecutive Emmy Awards for Best Comedy Series. The show is sometimes titled Sergeant Bilko or simply Bilko in reruns, and is very often referred to by these names, both on-screen and by viewers. The show's success transformed Silvers from a journeyman comedian into a star, and writer-producer Hiken from a highly regarded behind-the-scenes comedy writer into a publicly recognized creator. I still have more Season 2 and Season 4 episodes to post, so more to come. This library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog, and the Catalog of Stars. The added episodes are:
      In the Movies
      College
      Girl From Italy
      The Face
      Against Culture
      The Motor Pool
      Engagement

      There's a Will
      Tax Trouble
      Mink Incorporated

      7/21/18 - Today I added the last eight available episodes of Season 7 to the Hawaii Five-0 Library. Hawaii Five-O was an American police procedural drama series produced by CBS Productions and Leonard Freeman. Set in Hawaii, the show originally aired for 12 seasons from 1968 to 1980, and continues in reruns. At the airing of its very last episode, it was the longest running cop show in television history at that time. Jack Lord portrayed Detective Captain Steve McGarrett, the head of a special state police task force which was based on an actual unit that existed under martial law in the 1940s. The theme music composed by Morton Stevens became especially popular. Many episodes would end with McGarrett instructing his subordinate to "Book 'em, Danno!", sometimes specifying a charge such as "murder one". I have found a substantial cache of episodes from 10 of the 12 Seasons of the series on Daily Motion, so many more to come The library is available in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

      7/20/18 - Today I added the first eighteen episodes to Season 4 of the My Three Sons Library. My Three Sons (1960-1972) was an American sitcom. The series ran from 1960 to 1965 on ABC, and moved to CBS until the end of its run on April 13, 1972. My Three Sons chronicles the life of widower and aeronautical engineer Steven Douglas (Fred MacMurray) as he raises his three sons. The series originally featured William Frawley as the boys' live-in maternal grandfather and maid, William Michael Francis "Bub" O'Casey. William Demarest, playing Bub's brother, "Charley", replaced Frawley in 1965 due to Frawley's illness. In September 1965, eldest son Mike (Tim Considine) married, and his character was written out of the show. To keep the emphasis on "three sons", original youngest son Chip's friend Ernie was adopted. In the program's later years, Steven Douglas remarried and adopted his new wife's young daughter Dorothy ("Dodie") (Dawn Lyn). This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs.

      7/18/18 - Today I started restoring my Frasier library with twenty-seven episodes to start. Frasier (1993-2004) was an American sitcom that was broadcast on NBC for eleven seasons. The series was created as a spin-off of Cheers, continuing the story of psychiatrist Frasier Crane as he returned to his hometown of Seattle and started building a new life. Frasier stars Kelsey Grammer, David Hyde Pierce, John Mahoney, Jane Leeves, Peri Gilpin, and Moose/Enzo. This library is located in the Comedy Shows Catalog. I want to point out that only the first 2 episodes in this library were part of the original one. In fact the new library starts during Season 4 - everything I had before were from Season 4 and earlier.

      7/17/18 - Today I created a new The Fall Guy library with twenty-one episodes to start. In The Fall Guy (1981–1986), Lee Majors plays Colt Seavers, a Hollywood stunt man who moonlights as a bounty hunter. He uses his physical skills and knowledge of stunt effects (especially stunts involving cars or his large GMC pickup truck) to capture fugitives and criminals. He is accompanied by his cousin and stuntman-in-training Howie Munson (Douglas Barr) - who studied in Nashville, whom Colt frequently calls "Kid", and occasionally by fellow stunt performer Jody Banks (Heather Thomas). Since this is now the 3rd series starring Lee Majors (the other two are The Big Valley and The Six Million Dollar Man - in playlist form), I decided to also create a Lee Majors Catalog to house the 3 libraries. The new catalog is available in the Catalog of Stars. The new library is also available separately in the Mystery, Detectives and Crime Drama Catalog.

      7/16/18 - Today I restored the last nine available episodes to Season 2 of the The Big Valley library. The Big Valley was an American western television series which ran on ABC. The show starred Barbara Stanwyck, as the widow of a wealthy nineteenth century California rancher. The TV series was based loosely on the Hill Ranch, which was located at the western edge of Calaveras County, not far from Stockton. This library is located in the Western Shows and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs. I have the bulk of the remining episodes bookmarked - so many more to come! The restored episodes are:

      Target
      Man from Nowhere
      Great Safe Robbery
      The Iron Box
      Last Stage

      Brother Love

      7/15/18 - After starting the restoration of the Fernwood 2 Night library, I decided to look around for some Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman episodes and was amazed that I found over 200 of them on Dailymotion! So I have posted the first thirty-nine available episodes to start. Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman was an American satirical soap opera that aired in daily (weekday) syndication from January 1976 to May 1977. The series was produced by Norman Lear, directed by Joan Darling, Jim Drake, Nessa Hyams, and Giovanna Nigro, and starred Louise Lasser. The show's title was the eponymous character's name stated twice, because Lear and the writers believed that dialogue within a soap opera was always said twice. In 2004 and 2007, Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman was ranked #21 and #26 on "TV Guide's Top Cult Shows Ever". I am going to wait a while to see if the videos last on Dailymotion before I post any more. I have hopes that they will because they are already more than a year old - but we will see - stay tuned. The restored library is located in the Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman Catalog, which can be found in the Whacky Dames Catalog, which is accessed via the Comedy Shows Catalog.

      7/13/18 - Today I started restoring my Fernwood 2 Night library with nine episodes to start. Fernwood 2 Night (or Fernwood Tonight) was a comedic television program that ran weeknights from July 1977 to September 1977. It was created by Norman Lear and produced by Alan Thicke as a spin-off/summer replacement from Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman. It was a parody talk show, hosted by Barth Gimble (Martin Mull) and sidekick/announcer Jerry Hubbard (Fred Willard), complete with a stage band, Happy Kyne and the Mirthmakers (featuring Frank De Vol as the dour "Happy" Kyne, and Tommy Tedesco as one of the guitarists). Barth was purportedly the twin brother of Garth Gimble from Mary Hartman. The restored library is located in the Funny Guys! Catalog. I have many more to add so stay tuned.

      7/12/18 - Today I added eleven episodes to the Foreign Intrigue library which doubles the size of the library. Foreign Intrigue (1951–1955) (also known as Foreign Assignment) was a syndicated television series produced in Europe by Sheldon Reynolds. The 30-minute series ran for four seasons from 1951 to 1955, producing 156 episodes. The series was set in post-Second World War Europe and dealt with spies and various other shady underworld characters. It originally starred Jerome Thor for the first two seasons. Thor was succeeded by James Daly for the duration of the third season. The fourth and final season starred Gerald Mohr as Christopher Storm. This is the first time I have added episodes to this library since it's creation in September of 2015. I'll keep looking for more of them.

It was broadcast on the CBS network for three seasons between September 9, 1975, and August 20, 1978. The series focused on two main characters, Frank MacBride (Eddie Albert) and Pete Ryan (Robert Wagner). MacBride was a retired bunco cop who once arrested Ryan, a con man. After Ryan's release from prison, the two men opened a detective agency in Los Angeles. Their speciality involves the use of confidence tricks to trap criminals into revealing evidence of their guilt. Assisting them is another reformed con man, restaurant owner Malcolm Argos (Charlie Callas), and Maggie Philbin (Sharon Gless), Mac and Pete's naive-but-competent receptionist and assistant. This library is located in the Eddie Albert Catalog and can also be found in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

      7/10/18 - Today I restored the twenty-eight available episodes to my The Four Just Men Library which completes the library with all but one of the 39 episodes of the full series. The Four Just Men - not to be confused with "Just For Men", a hair product for insecure aging men (says the white-haired 70 year old :-) was a British 1959 Sapphire Films production for ITC Entertainment. It ran for one season of 39 half-hour monochrome episodes. The series features four men who first met during World War II. The men later reassembled and decided to fight for justice and against tyranny, using money set aside for the purpose by their late commanding officer. The series, loosely based on a novel by Edgar Wallace, is located in the Action and Adventure and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs. The missing episode is #38 (The Boy Without a Country).

Miami Vice (1984-1989) was an American television crime drama series produced for NBC. The series starred Don Johnson as James "Sonny" Crockett and Philip Michael Thomas as Ricardo "Rico" Tubbs, two Metro-Dade Police Department detectives working undercover in Miami. Unlike standard police procedurals, the show drew heavily upon 1980s New Wave culture and music. The show became noted for its integration of music and visual effects. It has been called one of the "Top 50 TV Shows".

      Notes on my methods:

      My method is to search the Archive.org site for programs to bookmark. I have a bookmark folder for each library. I go back later and post the videos in batches. For those who may be interested, I created this site originally as a way to catalog programs for download for use on the Public Access Television Station where I work in Fort Bragg, CA, Mendocino Coast Television (MCTV). Public Domain television shows and movies are legal to broadcast and they are free. I found Archive.org rather cumbersome to navigate, so I started building this site with just links to the individual pages on Archive.org. It immediately occurred to me that with just a tiny bit more effort, I could also build a player page and actually display the programs for the public to enjoy. The logical next step was to change the purpose of the site (although I do still use it for the original purpose), to a free video repository
