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


      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. This library is located in the Comedy Shows Catalog and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added episodes are:
      Opies Job
      Taylors in Hollywood
      Legend of Barney Fife
      Earp Rides Again
      Howard the Bowler
      Trip to Raleigh
      Opies Group

      The Wedding
      Girl for Goober

      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
      No Help Wanted
      Time and Yuletide

      11/28/18 - Today I added twelve episodes to Season 7 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 Season 8 episodes to add, so more to come! The added episodes are:
      Geneva Balfour
      Kate Crawley
      Grover Allen
      Andrew Elliott
      Melanie Craig

      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)
      Carbine Williams (1952)
      Thunder Bay (1953)
      The Glenn Miller Story (1954)
      The Far Country (1954)
      Strategic Air Commmand (1955)
      The FBI Story (1959)

      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 (1960-19710 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)
      You Can't Get Away With Murder (1939)
      Dark Victory (1939)
      The Maltese Falcon (1941)
      Casablanca (1942)
      Across The Pacific (1942)
      Action In The North Atlantic (1943)
      Sahara (1943)
      Tokyo Joe (1949)
      In a Lonely Place (1950)
      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:

      3/1/52
      1/31/53
      4/3/54
      5/22/54
      9/11/54
      4/4/55
      5/24/58

      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.

      10/23/18 - Today I added fifteen episodes to Seasons 1 and 3 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 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:
      Hollywood Story
      Act of Faith
      Clara Schumann Story
      First Man to Ask He
      Forest Ranger
      Enchanted Schoolteacher
      The Judgment

      The Secret
      Gesundheit
      The Inheritance
      God's Grace

      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 Library. 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

      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 (née 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

      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

      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

      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)

      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 (1960-19710 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

      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, risqué 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:
      Mary Moves Out
      Moment of Glory
      Marys Delinquent
      Teds Wedding
      Teds Tax Refund
      Menage a Lou

      Mary Gets a Lawyer
      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

      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 (1960-19710 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:

      King of the Cowboys

Airing from 1978 to 1984, the original series starred Ricardo Montalbán 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 Hervé Villechaize). Tattoo would run up the main bell tower to ring the bell and shout "De plane! De plane!" to announce the arrival of a new set of guests at the beginning of each episode.

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.

      8/1/18 - Today I added all twenty-two episodes of Season 3 to the Switch Library. This completes the library with all but 1 of the episodes of the complete series. Switch was an American action-adventure detective series starring Eddie Albert and Robert Wagner. 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.

      7/30/18 - 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
      The Test Case
      The Glass Cage
      Doomsday
      The Bunker P1
      The Bunker P2
      Nitro
      The Interrogator

      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

      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

      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 (1960-19710 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:

      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.

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.

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.

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.

      6/22/18 - Today I restored thirteen episodes to Season 2 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 Widow
      The Survivors
      The Bank
      The Slave P1
      The Slave P2
      The Council P1
      The Council P2

      The Spy
      The Emerald
      The Condemned
      The Counterfeiter
      The Town

      6/21/18 - Last night I happened to click on an old bookmark (circa 2011) and noticed that the YouTube playlist at that URL was still there after 7 or so years - so I decided to build a E! True Hollywood Story library with twenty-one episodes to start. 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.

      6/18/18 - Today I created a new Tom Jones library with ten videos to start, ranging from an episode of his short-lived TV show, to concerts, documentaries and Interviews. Sir Thomas John Woodward OBE (born 7 June 1940), also known by his stage name Tom Jones, is a Welsh singer. His career has spanned six decades, from his emergence as a vocalist in the mid-1960s with a string of top hits, regular touring, appearances in Las Vegas (1967–2011), and career comebacks—to coaching on The Voice UK from 2012 (with the exception of 2016). Jones's powerful voice has been described as a "full-throated, robust baritone". His performing range has included pop, R&B, show tunes, country, dance, soul and gospel. The new library is located in the Musical and Variety Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      6/17/18 - Today I restored the remaining available eighteen episodes to Season 1 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:
      My Father's Name
      Young Marauders
      Jubal Tanner
      Heritage
      Winner Lose All
      My Son, My Son
      Murdered Party
      Kill a Killer
      Night of the Wolf
      Matt Bentell
      Judgement
      By Fires Unseen
      Teacher of Outlaws
      Barbary Red
      Death Merchant
      Widow's Web
      River Monarch
      Tunnel of Gold

      6/16/18 - Today I added all twenty episodes to Season 6 of the 77 Sunset Strip Library. This completes the library until I find more of the 41 missing episodes. 77 Sunset Strip was an American television private detective series created by Roy Huggins and starring Efrem Zimbalist, Jr., Roger Smith and Edd Byrnes. The series revolves around two Los Angeles private detectives, both former government secret agents: Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. played Stuart ("Stu") Bailey, a character Huggins had originated in his 1946 novel The Double Take (which he later adapted into the 1948 movie I Love Trouble, starring Franchot Tone in the role). Roger Smith played Jeff Spencer, also a former government agent, and a nonpracticing attorney. The duo worked out of a stylish office at 77 Sunset Boulevard (colloquially known as "Sunset Strip"), between La Cienega Boulevard and Alta Loma Road on the south side of the Strip next door to Dean Martin's real-life lounge, Dino's Lodge. I have most of the Season 6 episodes to post, so more to come. This library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

      6/14/18 - Today I created a new Switch Library with all twenty-four of the Season 1 episodes to start. Switch was an American action-adventure detective series starring Eddie Albert and Robert Wagner. 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 series has special significance to yours truely because at the time it was running I worked with a theater company in Burbank, CA called the Golden Mall Playhouse. My wife and I were both involved with them - me as an actor, my wife worked backstage and also sometimes ran the lighting and/or the sound for various productions. One of the owners of the theater was an Assistant Director for many TV shows, including The Waltons, Eight is Enough and Switch. On occasion I got to watch while scenes from episodes were filmed in the theater, in the lobby, and outside on the street. I got to meet both Mr. Wagner and Mr. Albert on occasion and even sat with Wagner's wife, screen actress Natalie Wood during the filming of an episode of Switch (Photo Finish - Season 3, Episode 21) that featured her in a cameo role. Since this is the second series on the site starring Eddie Albert, I also decided to create an Eddie Albert Catalog to house this series and Green Acres. The Switch library can also be found in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

      6/10/18 - Today I added eight episodes to the 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. This library is located in the Bandstand Catalog, which can be found in the Musical and Variety Catalog. The added episodes are:

      April 23, 1960
      April 24, 1963
      December 21, 1963
      May 30, 1964
      May 7, 1966
      November 27, 1965
      January 8, 1966
      October 22, 1966

      6/9/18 - Over the last couple of months I have added five more episodes to the Honeymooners Sketches library. These are original Honeymooners sketches from Cavalcade of Stars and the Jackie Gleason Show. They have been showing up one or two at a time with several weeks in between, so I have neglected to mention them here until now. I am sure there will be more of them. The library is located in the Jackie Gleason Catalog which resides in both the Comedy Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. The added episodes are dated:

      5/29/54
      3/14/53
      9/26/53
      1/23/54
      5/22/54

      6/7/18 - Today I added the final twenty-one episodes to Season 2 of the Dennis the Menace library. This completes the library with all 146 episodes of the series (from Hulu). Dennis the Menace was an American sitcom based on the Hank Ketcham comic strip of the same name and preceded The Ed Sullivan Show on Sunday evenings on CBS from October 1959 to July 1963. The series stars Jay North as Dennis Mitchell; Herbert Anderson as his father, Henry; Gloria Henry as his mother, Alice; Joseph Kearns as George Wilson, Gale Gordon as George's brother, John Wilson, Sylvia Field as George's wife, Martha Wilson, and Sara Seegar as John's wife, Eloise Wilson. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

      6/5/18 - Today I added the first eighteen episodes of Season 3 to the My Three Sons Library. My Three Sons (1960-19710 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.

      6/4/18 - Today I created a new Hudson's Bay library with all twenty-four available episodes of the series. Hudson's Bay (1958-1959) was a Canadian Western Series dealing with stories connected to the Hudson's Bay Company and its fur trade shortly after North America was colonized. Trappers, Explorers, Native Americans, French and British alike all traveled the territory seeking their fortunes and finding fame and adventure. Starring Barry Nelson and George Tobias. I have to say that it was pretty difficult to find information about this series. For example, I was unable to unearth any information regarding specific air-dates for any of the episodes, and two of them that I found were not even mentioned in any of the databases I normally consult. I ended up watching them both is order to write the plot summaries. I will keep looking, but thus far these 24 episodes are all I have found of the series. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure, Western Shows and the Historical Drama Catalogs.

      6/2/18 - Today I started restoring my The Donna Reed Show library with sixteen episodes to start. The Donna Reed Show was an American situation comedy starring Donna Reed as the middle-class housewife, Donna Stone. Carl Betz co-stars as her pediatrician husband Dr. Alex Stone, and Shelley Fabares and Paul Petersen as their teenage children, Mary and Jeff. The show originally aired on ABC from September 24, 1958 to March 19, 1966. The original library was from Hulu and only included the first 5 Seasons. The new version of the library is much smaller, but it includes episodes from Seasons 6, 7 and 8 - in fact 9 of the episodes are ones that were not part of the original library. The restored library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

      6/1/18 - Today I added the first seventeen available episodes to Season 6 of 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. Ths 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 6 through 8 the series, so many more to come.

      5/31/18 - Today I added the last twelve available episodes to Season 1 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 episodes of Seasons 2 and 3 to add, so more to come. This library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog, and the Catalog of Stars. The added episodes are:
      The Trailer
      Revolutionary War
      Bilko's Transfer
      Dinner at Sowici's
      Army Memoirs
      Miss America
      Furlough
      Uranium Strike
      Physical Check-Up
      Recruiting Sergeant
      Bilko's Hair
      War Games

      5/30/18 - Today I added the next seventeen available episodes to the Night Court Library. They include all thirteen available Season 4 episodes, and the four episodes I was able to find of Season 5. Night Court (1984–1992) was an American television situation comedy that aired on NBC. The setting was the night shift of a Manhattan municipal court, Criminal Court Part 2, presided over by a young, unorthodox judge, Harold T. "Harry" Stone (played by Harry Anderson). The series was created by comedy writer Reinhold Weege, who had previously worked on Barney Miller in the 1970s and early 1980s. The new library is located in the Comedy Shows Catalog. I have about 65 episodes yet to post so many more to come.

      5/29/18 - A couple of days ago one of my regular correspondents ask me about WWII movies, related to the Memorial Day weekend that was coming up. I ended up adding some WWII movies to the War on Film library. In his email he mentioned the WWII TV series, The Rat Patrol, and I promised to look into it. Yesterday evening I did some searches and managed to find all 56 episodes of the series, so this morning I created a new The Rat Patrol library with the first twenty-three episodes to start. 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. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure Catalog.

      5/27/18 - Today I created a George Carlin Catalog to house ten George Carlin Stand-Up Library programs, twelve George Carlin Interviews and the only six episodes I have found so far of The George Carlin Show. George Denis Patrick Carlin (May 12, 1937 – June 22, 2008) was an American comedian, writer, social critic, and actor who won five Grammy Awards for his comedy albums. Carlin was noted for his black comedy as well as his thoughts on politics, the English language, psychology, religion, and various taboo subjects. Carlin was noted for his black comedy as well as his thoughts on politics, the English language, psychology, religion, and various taboo subjects. He and his "seven dirty words" comedy routine were central to the 1978 U.S. Supreme Court case F.C.C. v. Pacifica Foundation, in which a 5–4 decision affirmed the government's power to regulate indecent material on the public airwaves. He is widely regarded as one of the most important and influential stand-up comics; one newspaper called Carlin "the dean of counterculture comedians". In April 2004, he placed second on the Comedy Central list of "Top 10 Comedians of US Audiences". I originally created the Carlin Stand-Up library in 2014 with videos from YouTube which, I discovered yesterday, had all vanished except for one program. While searching for replacements I found many more videos then were available in 2014, so I started breaking them up into different categories and thus the new catalog was born. The new catalog is available in both the Comedy Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. In honor of Memorial Day I also added five movies to the WWII library, located in the War on Film Catalog, via the Feature Films Catalog. The added films are:

      The Enemy Below (1957)
      The Thin Red Line (1964)
      A Bridge Too Far (1977)
      All Quiet on the Western Front (1979)
      Nuremberg (2000)

      5/26/18 - Late last night, to honor the passing of Cheyenne star, Clint Walker, I decided to create a new Clint Walker Catalog with the Cheyenne Library as well as a Clint Walker Films Library with seven of his Feature Films, and a Other Clint Walker TV Appearances Library with episodes he guested is from The Lucy Show, Kraft Suspense Theatre, and The Jack Benny Program. Norman Eugene "Clint" Walker (May 30, 1927 – May 21, 2018) was an American actor and singer. He was perhaps best known for his starring role as cowboy Cheyenne Bodie in the ABC/Warner Bros. western series Cheyenne from (1955–1963). Walker's good looks and imposing physique (he stood 6 feet, 6 inches tall with a 48-inch chest and a 32-inch waist)[6] helped him land an audition where he won the lead role in the TV series Cheyenne. Billed as "Clint Walker", he was cast as Cheyenne Bodie, a roaming cowboy hero in the post-American Civil War era. His casting was announced in June 1955. Walker made a few films before the Cheyenne series, but the bulk of his movie career took place in the 1960s and 1970s, when he had starring roles in several western films and a few others. The new catalog is located in the Feature Films and the Western Shows Catalogs, and the Catalog of Stars.

      5/25/18 - Today I added ten more episodes to the 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. This library is located in the Bandstand Catalog, which can be found in the Musical and Variety Catalog. The added episodes are:
      June 18, 1960
      August 19, 1963
      August 31, 1963
      September 7, 1963
      October 12, 1963
      May 22, 1965
      June 12, 1965
      June 26, 1965
      July 3, 1965
      August 14, 1965

      5/24/18 - Today I added the last eleven available episodes of Season 5 to the 77 Sunset Strip Library. 77 Sunset Strip was an American television private detective series created by Roy Huggins and starring Efrem Zimbalist, Jr., Roger Smith and Edd Byrnes. The series revolves around two Los Angeles private detectives, both former government secret agents: Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. played Stuart ("Stu") Bailey, a character Huggins had originated in his 1946 novel The Double Take (which he later adapted into the 1948 movie I Love Trouble, starring Franchot Tone in the role). Roger Smith played Jeff Spencer, also a former government agent, and a nonpracticing attorney. The duo worked out of a stylish office at 77 Sunset Boulevard (colloquially known as "Sunset Strip"), between La Cienega Boulevard and Alta Loma Road on the south side of the Strip next door to Dean Martin's real-life lounge, Dino's Lodge. I have most of the Season 6 episodes to post, so more to come. This library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog. The added episodes are all of them on the 8th library page.

      5/22/18 - Today I created a new The Grand Ole Opry library with ten episodes to start, including the first televised episode of the show. The Grand Ole Opry (1952-) is a weekly country-music stage concert in Nashville, Tennessee, which was founded on November 28, 1925, by George D. Hay as a one-hour radio "barn dance" on WSM. Some of the bands regularly on the show during its early days included Bill Monroe, the Possum Hunters (with Dr. Humphrey Bate), the Fruit Jar Drinkers with Uncle Dave Macon, the Crook Brothers, the Binkley Brothers' Dixie Clodhoppers, Sid Harkreader, Deford Bailey, Fiddlin' Arthur Smith, The Foggy Mountain Boys, Flatt & Scruggs and the Gully Jumpers. The new library is located in the Musical and Variety Catalog. I also added four more sketches to the Honeymooners Sketches library. These are original Honeymooners sketches from Cavalcade of Stars and the Jackie Gleason Show. The library is located in the Jackie Gleason Catalog which resides in both the Comedy Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. The added episodes are dated:

      11/22/52
      9/28/53
      3/14/53
      9/28/53

      5/20/18 - Today I decided to go into the Television Drama Catalog and add the few episodes I had available for four different series'. First I created a new Kraft Theatre library with the only five episodes I have found thus far. Kraft Television Theatre was an American drama/anthology television series that began May 7, 1947, on NBC, airing at 7:30pm on Wednesday evenings until December of that year. Beginning October 1953, ABC added a second version. This series ran for sixteen months until January 1955. The live hour-long series offered television plays with new stories and new characters each week, in addition to adaptations of such classics as A Christmas Carol and Alice in Wonderland. The program was broadcast live from Studio 8-H at 30 Rockefeller Plaza, currently the home of Saturday Night Live.

      I then created a new Wire Service library with the three available episodes. Wire Service (1956-1957) focused on three reporters for the fictional Trans Globe wire service, which was similar to (and obviously inspired by) real-life news wire services such as the Associated Press and United Press International. It was the first hour-long, weekly scheduled dramatic series with continuing characters to last a full season on network television. However, the three reporters functioned independently of each other, meaning that the series was essentially three different ones sharing a time slot and title. The current library features two of the characters.

      I also added Hang the Heart High, Hanging Fever and Desert Flight to the Zane Grey Theatre library. Dick Powell's Zane Grey Theatre, sometimes simply called Zane Grey Theatre, was an American Western anthology series which ran on CBS from 1956 to 1961. The show was originally based on the short stories and novels of Western author Zane Grey, but as the episodes continued, new material was included. Aaron Spelling, wrote twenty Zane Grey episodes.

      And, finally, I added Fred Allen's Sketchbook (1954) to the Armstrong Circle Theatre library Armstrong Circle Theatre was an American anthology drama television series which ran from 1950 to 1957 on NBC, and then until 1963 on CBS. It alternated weekly with The U.S. Steel Hour. The series featured original dramas by noted writers. Its guidelines specifically called for the avoidance of violence. In 1955 the show expanded to an hour and began to emphasize dramatized versions of real-life contemporary events - including the sinking of the SS Andrea Doria and a documentary on the history of Communism in the Soviet Union.

      5/19/18 - Today I restord my Hopalong Cassidy TV library with all twenty-six episodes of Season 1 (the original library only had 3 episodes). Hopalong Cassidy (aka Hop-along Cassidy) is believed to be a fictional cowboy hero created in 1904 by the author Clarence E. Mulford, who wrote a series of popular short stories and many novels based on the character. In his early writings, Mulford portrayed the character as rude, dangerous, and rough-talking. He had a wooden leg which caused him to walk with a little "hop", hence the nickname. From 1935, the character—as played by movie actor William Boyd in films adapted from Mulford's books—was transformed into a clean-cut, sarsaparilla-drinking hero. Sixty-six popular films appeared, only a few of which were loosely based on Mulford's stories. As portrayed on the screen, white-haired Bill "Hopalong" Cassidy was usually clad strikingly in black (including his hat, an exception to the western film stereotype that only villains wore black hats). He was reserved and well spoken, with a sense of fair play. He was often called upon to intercede when dishonest characters took advantage of honest citizens. "Hoppy" and his white horse, Topper, usually traveled through the west with two companions—one young and trouble-prone with a weakness for damsels in distress, the other older, comically awkward and outspoken. Harry Sherman wanted to make more ambitious movies and tried to cancel the Cassidy series, but popular demand forced Sherman back into production, this time for United Artists. Sherman gave up the series in 1944, but William Boyd wanted to keep it going. To do this, he gambled his future on Hopalong Cassidy, mortgaging most of what he owned to buy the character rights from Mulford and the backlog of movies from Sherman. In the first film, Hopalong Cassidy (then spelled "Hop-along") got his name after being shot in the leg. Boyd resumed productionin 1946, on lower budgets, and continued through 1948, when "B" westerns were being phased out. Boyd thought Hopalong Cassidy might have a future in television, spent $350,000 to obtain the rights to his old films, and approached the fledgling NBC network. The initial broadcasts were so successful that NBC could not wait for a television series to be produced and edited the feature films to broadcast length. On June 24, 1949, Hopalong Cassidy became the first network Western television series. I should mention that I was a devoted follower of this series as a child. This library is located in the Western Shows Catalog, and the William Boyd Catalog, which is located in the Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      5/18/18 - Today I didn't have much time to work on the site so I decided to add episodes to a couple of series for which I only had a few available. I added No Clothes fo the Party, The Male Ego and Friends Forever to the Meet Corliss Archer library. Meet Corliss Archer was a 30 minute syndicated American television comedy series of 39 episodes which aired in 1955 and starred Ann Baker as Corliss. Corliss Archer is a cute, lovable, blond teenager that must delicately balance her life at high school, life at home with her parents - Harry and Janet Archer, as well as her goofy boyfriend Dexter Franklin. This completes the library with 37 of the 39 known episodes. The 2 missing ones are apparently no longer in existance because I have been unable to find any information whatsoever on either of them. This library is located in the Whacky Dames and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs.

      I then added shows dated 2/14/1951, 2/18/1956, 1/19/1957 and 1/17/1959 to the Perry Como library. Pierino Ronald "Perry" Como (May 18, 1912 – May 12, 2001) was an American singer and television personality. During a career spanning more than half a century he recorded exclusively for the RCA Victor label after signing with them in 1943. "Mr. C.", as he was nicknamed, sold millions of records for Radio Corporation of America (RCA) and pioneered a weekly musical variety television show, which set the standards for the genre and proved to be one of the most successful in television history. This library is located in the Musical and Variety Catalog.

      5/17/18 - Today I added the last eleven available episodes to Season 5 of the The Twilight Zone library. This completes the library until I find more of the missing episodes. The Twilight Zone (1959–1964) was an American television anthology series created by Rod Serling. It is a series of unrelated stories containing drama, psychological thriller, fantasy, science fiction, suspense, and/or horror, often concluding with a macabre or unexpected twist. A popular and critical success, it introduced many Americans to common science fiction and fantasy tropes. At one time I had almost all of the series episodes from Hulu, but then they moved their collection into the "Subscribers Only" category, meaning that the only way you could view them on my site would be if you are a Hulu subscriber and you are logged into Hulu. I have 13 more episodes from Season 5 to restore so more to come. This library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog. The newly restored episodes are:
      From Agnes with Love
      Spur of the Moment
      What's in the Box?
      I am the Night
      Sounds and Silences
      Caesar and Me
      The Jeopardy Room
      Stopover in a Quiet Town
      The Encounter

      The Fear

      5/16/18 - Today I restored the thirty-five available episodes of Season 2 to the My Three Sons Library. My Three Sons (1960-19710 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). The original library was only two library pages long - as I expand this one I hope to be able to offer a much larger collection this time. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs.

      5/13/18 - Today I added the nineteen available episodes of Season 2 to the Drew Carey Show library. The Drew Carey Show (1995–2004) was an American sitcom that aired on ABC from 1995 to 2004, and was set in Cleveland, Ohio, and revolved around the retail office and home life of "everyman" Drew Carey, a fictionalized version of the actor. This library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog and the Drew Carey Catalog, which is located in the Catalog of Stars. I have the bulk of the series bookmarked, so many more to come.

      5/12/18 - Today I created a new Inspector Mark Saber library with thirteen episodes to start. Inspector Mark Saber/Saber of London (1951-1958) was a half-hour 1950s detective television series about a British police captain named Mark Saber. The Inspector Mark Saber character originally appeared on the radio series ABC Mystery Theater. The TV program had different titles during its nearly nine-year run: Mystery Theater, Inspector Mark Saber of the Homicide Squad, The Vise, and finally Saber of London. In the original version of the program (Mystery Theater/Homicide Squad), Saber worked in the homicide department of a large American city. In syndication, the series was entitled Detective's Diary. Tom Conway portrayed Mark Saber from October 1951 to June 1954. Donald Gray, a native of South Africa, played the part from December 1955 through May 1960. I have to confess that I never heard of this show before I stumbled on a couple of episodes on the Internet Archive. Although the Austalian/British produced program ran for almost 9 years in the United States, it always seemed to be scheduled opposite very popular prime-time shows like Lassie and Rin-Tin-Tin. The new library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog. These are all of the episodes I've found so far, but I will keep my eyes open.

      Since, although I spent many hours in researching plot summaries, air dates and other information for these episodes, the actual building of the library didn't take long at all - so I decided to create a new Animal Stars Catalog, dedicated to shows that featured (and were somtimes named for) animals as principle characters in the story lines. Usually they were dogs (Lassie, Rin Tin Tin, Topper, etc) or horses (Fury, My Friend Flicka, Mr. Ed and the like). In a lot, but not all cases, they were considered to be children's programs. The new catalog is located in the Kid Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      5/12/18 - Today I added the last sixteen episodes of Season 4 to the Dennis the Menace library. Dennis the Menace was an American sitcom based on the Hank Ketcham comic strip of the same name and preceded The Ed Sullivan Show on Sunday evenings on CBS from October 1959 to July 1963. The series stars Jay North as Dennis Mitchell; Herbert Anderson as his father, Henry; Gloria Henry as his mother, Alice; Joseph Kearns as George Wilson, Gale Gordon as George's brother, John Wilson, Sylvia Field as George's wife, Martha Wilson, and Sara Seegar as John's wife, Eloise Wilson. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. I have 21 episodes of Season 2 yet to post. The added episodes are all of them on the last library page.

      5/8/18 - Today I added ten episodes to 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. This library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog, and the Catalog of Stars. The added episodes are all in Season 1:

      Pilot
      The Empty Store
      The Horse
      A.W.O.L.
      The Boxer
      Mardi Gras
      The Centennial
      Bivouac
      Singing Contest
      The Twitch

      5/7/18 - In my seeming current obsession with "dawn of the television age" programs I decided to create a new Ed Sullivan library including one episode of Toast of the Town, seven episodes of the Ed Sullivan Show and a Friars Club Roast of Mr. Sullivan. Edward Vincent "Ed" Sullivan (September 28, 1901 – October 13, 1974) was an American television personality, sports and entertainment reporter, and syndicated columnist for the New York Daily News and the Chicago Tribune New York News Syndicate. He is principally remembered as the creator and host of the television variety program The Toast of the Town, later popularly—and, eventually, officially—renamed The Ed Sullivan Show. Broadcast for 23 years from 1948 to 1971, it set a record as the longest-running variety show in US broadcast history. As a boy, and well into my teens, I never missed Ed Sullivan. In fact, I can state that I watched every one of these programs, except for the first one, which took place when I was about 1 1/2 years old. I may have seen it, but I don't remember it :-). The new libary is located in the Variety Shows Catalog, and the Catalog of Stars.

      5/6/18 - Today I created a new Spike Jones library with seven programs including a 1942 Theatrical Short, an episode of the Colgate Comedy Hour he starred in, several episodes of The Spike Jones Show, which ran from 1952 until 1957, and a documentary about his life and career from 1988. Lindley Armstrong "Spike" Jones (December 14, 1911 – May 1, 1965) was an American musician and bandleader specializing in satirical arrangements of popular songs and classical music. Ballads receiving the Jones treatment were punctuated with gunshots, whistles, cowbells and outlandish and comedic vocals. From the early 1940s to the mid-1950s, Jones and his band recorded under the title Spike Jones and his City Slickers and toured the United States and Canada as The Musical Depreciation Revue. The new catalog is located in the Musical and Variety Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      5/518 - Today I added twenty-three episodes to the The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp library. This completes the library until I find more of the 79 missing episodes. The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp (1955-1961) was the first western television series written for adults, premiering four days before Gunsmoke on September 6, 1955. It was loosely based on the life of frontier marshal Wyatt Earp. The half-hour black-and-white program aired for 229 episodes on ABC from 1955 to 1961. O'Brian was chosen for the role in part because of his physical resemblance to early photographs of Wyatt Earp. I have continued to watch these shows and highly recommend them. The Earp character, as portayed by Hugh O'Brian, is really different from a lot of western heroes - he is strong and confident, but also humble. In all of the shows I've watched so far he manages to win each fight without killing anyone. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Western Shows Catalog. The added episodes are:
      Lonesomest Man
      Justice
      Shootin' Woman
      Command Performance
      Bat for Sheriff
      The Vultures
      Indian Wife
      Earp Rides Shotgun
      The Schoolteacher
      One
      The Underdog
      Dig a Grave
      The Bounty Killer
      Plague Carrier
      Kill the Editor
      Little Brother
      Horse Race
      Dodge is Civilized
      The Nugget
      The Fugitive
      The Scout
      Bitterest Enemy
      The Doctor

      5/4/18 - Today I restored twelve episodes to Season 5 of the The Twilight Zone library. These were all part of the original library. The Twilight Zone (1959–1964) was an American television anthology series created by Rod Serling. It is a series of unrelated stories containing drama, psychological thriller, fantasy, science fiction, suspense, and/or horror, often concluding with a macabre or unexpected twist. A popular and critical success, it introduced many Americans to common science fiction and fantasy tropes. At one time I had almost all of the series episodes from Hulu, but then they moved their collection into the "Subscribers Only" category, meaning that the only way you could view them on my site would be if you are a Hulu subscriber and you are logged into Hulu. I have 13 more episodes from Season 5 to restore so more to come. This library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog. The newly restored episodes are:
      In Praise of Pip
      Steele
      Nightmare
      Stopwatch
      Night of a Jockey
      Uncle Simon
      Phantoms
      Ring-A-Ding Girl
      The Long Morrow
      Brain Center
      Come Wander
      Bewitchin' Pool

      5/2/18 - After adding some episodes to my Brian Henderson's Bandstand Library it occurred too me that I didn't have a library for the original Bandstand show, so I created a new American Bandstand Library with thirteen episodes to start. American Bandstand (1952-1989) was an American music-performance show that aired in various versions from 1952 to 1989 and was hosted from 1956 until its final season by Dick Clark, who also served as producer. The show featured teenagers dancing to Top 40 music introduced by Clark; at least one popular musical act—over the decades, running the gamut from Jerry Lee Lewis to Run–D.M.C., would usually appear in person to lip-sync one of their latest singles. Freddy Cannon holds the record for most appearances, at 110. Since I now have 2 versions of Bandstand, I decided to create a new Bandstand Catalog to house both versions of the show (and any others I come across in the future. The new catalog is located in the Musical and Variety Catalog.

      4/29/18 - Today I added the last available eleven episodes to Seasons 4 and 5 of the Have Gun Will Travel library. This completes the library until I find more of the 24 missing episodes. Have Gun – Will Travel (1957-1963) was an American Western television series that aired on CBS. It was rated number three or number four in the Nielsen ratings every year of its first four seasons. The series follows the adventures of a man calling himself "Paladin" (played by Richard Boone), taking his name from that of the foremost knight warriors in Charlemagne's court. He is a gentleman gunfighter who travels around the Old West working as a mercenary gunfighter for people who hire him to solve their problems for them. Although Paladin will charge steep fees to clients who can afford to hire him, typically $1000 per job, he will provide his services for free (i.e., pro bono) to poor people who need his help. Like many westerns, the television show was set during a nebulous period after the Civil War. This is my favorite western series. In my opinion, it is the best "thinking man's" adventure series ever produced. I can't recommend it highly enough. The library is located in the Western TV Shows catalog. The added episodes are:
      The Calf
      The Tender Gun
      The Siege
      The Uneasy Grave
      A Proof of Love
      Invasion
      The Jest
      Bandit
      Pandora's Box
      Jonah
      The Knight

      4/28/18 - Today I added twenty-four episodes to the Zane Grey Theatre Library, which increases the size of the library by 5 times - from 6 to 30 episodes. Dick Powell's Zane Grey Theatre, sometimes simply called Zane Grey Theatre, was an American Western anthology series which ran on CBS from 1956 to 1961. The show was originally based on the short stories and novels of Western author Zane Grey, but as the episodes continued, new material was included. Aaron Spelling, wrote twenty Zane Grey episodes. This library is located in the Western Shows and the Television Drama Catalogs. The added episodes are:
      Death Watch
      Trail Incident
      A Thread of Respect
      Heritage
      The Sunrise Gun
      Checkmate
      Interrogation

      4/27/2018 - Today I added ten episodes to the Brian Henderson's Bandstand Library, which more than triples the size of the library from 4 to 14 episodes. 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. This library is located in the Musical and Variety Catalog.

      4/24/18 - Today I added the first twenty available episodes to Season 5 of the 77 Sunset Strip Library. 77 Sunset Strip was an American television private detective series created by Roy Huggins and starring Efrem Zimbalist, Jr., Roger Smith and Edd Byrnes. The series revolves around two Los Angeles private detectives, both former government secret agents: Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. played Stuart ("Stu") Bailey, a character Huggins had originated in his 1946 novel The Double Take (which he later adapted into the 1948 movie I Love Trouble, starring Franchot Tone in the role). Roger Smith played Jeff Spencer, also a former government agent, and a nonpracticing attorney. The duo worked out of a stylish office at 77 Sunset Boulevard (colloquially known as "Sunset Strip"), between La Cienega Boulevard and Alta Loma Road on the south side of the Strip next door to Dean Martin's real-life lounge, Dino's Lodge. I have the rest of Season 5 and most of the Season 6 episodes to post, so more to come. This library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog. The added episodes are all of them on the 7th library page.

      4/23/18 - Last night I watched a documentary on Orson Welles and realized that I didn't have a Catalog of his work, so I created one here: Orson Wells Catalog. The new catalog includes Feature Films, TV Appearances and Documentaries and Interviews. George Orson Welles (May 6, 1915 – October 10, 1985) was an American actor, director, writer, and producer who worked in theatre, radio, and film. He is remembered for his innovative[1] work in all three: in theatre, most notably Caesar (1937), a Broadway adaptation of William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar; in radio, the legendary[2] 1938 broadcast "The War of the Worlds"; and in film, Citizen Kane (1941), consistently ranked as one of the greatest films ever made. The new catalog can be found in the Feature Films Catalogs, and the Catalog of Stars.

      I also added a few new episodes to two other libraries: Blood Flower to the One Step Beyond Libaray and Ricky Thinks He's Going Bald, A Sculptress, Lucy and Orson Wells and The Indian Show to the I Love Lucy Library.

      4/20/18 - Today I created a new Captain Z-RO Library with twenty-four of the twenty-six episodes of the original series (all I have found so far). Captain Z-Ro (pronounced "zero") Was an American children's television show that ran locally on KRON in San Francisco and KTTV in Los Angeles, from November 1951 through 1953, and was later nationally syndicated in the United States, beginning Dec. 18, 1955 and ending its run of original episodes on June 10, 1956. It remained in syndication until 1960. Modeled on the science fiction space operas popular at the time (cf. Captain Video and Space Patrol), it featured sets and costumes emulating the futuristic designs of Buck Rogers and Flash Gordon. The premise was that Scientist Captain Z-Ro, working in his remote laboratory, safeguarded mankind and history from impending harm. He had a time machine, the ZX-99, both to view history and to send someone back in time. Each week, he and his teenage assistant Jet would view an episode in time and inevitably see that some event was unfolding contrary to history (e.g., King John not signing the Magna Carta). Captain Z-Ro would then send Jet back in time to intervene and ensure that history played out as originally recorded. This library is located in the Kid Shows, the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror and the Action and Adventure Catalogs.

      4/18/18 - Today I started restoring my My Three Sons Library with the all thirty-six episodes of Season 1 to start. My Three Sons (1960-19710 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). The original library was only two library pages long - as I expand this one I hope to be able to offer a much larger collection this time. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs.

      4/17/18 - Upon reading about the passing of my old buddy, Harry Anderson, I decided to add all eighteen available episodes to Season 3 of the Night Court Library. Night Court (1984–1992) was an American television situation comedy that aired on NBC. The setting was the night shift of a Manhattan municipal court, Criminal Court Part 2, presided over by a young, unorthodox judge, Harold T. "Harry" Stone (played by Harry Anderson). The series was created by comedy writer Reinhold Weege, who had previously worked on Barney Miller in the 1970s and early 1980s. The new library is located in the Comedy Shows Catalog. I have about 80 episodes yet to post so many more to come. My personal connection to Harry Anderson came about because we were both magicians living in the Los Angeles area, and we both were members of the Society of American Magicians (SAM)during the peak years of the show's popularity. We also shared a background as street performers and both participated in a panel discussion during a SAM meeting on that subject. One of the episodes I posted today, Could This Be Magic? also features another old magician friend of mine, Carl Ballantine.

      4/16/18 - Today I added all twenty-three available episodes to Season 6 of the I Love Lucy library. This completes the library unless I find more of the 21 missing episodes. I Love Lucy was an American television sitcom starring Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, Vivian Vance, and William Frawley. The black-and-white series originally ran on CBS. After the series ended in 1957, a modified version continued for three more seasons with 13 one-hour specials; it ran from 1957 to 1960. It was first known as The Lucille Ball-Desi Arnaz Show and later in reruns as The Lucy–Desi Comedy Hour. The show, which was the first scripted television program to be shot on 35 mm film in front of a studio audience, won five Emmy Awards and received numerous nominations. I Love Lucy was the most watched show in the United States in four of its six seasons, and it was the first to end its run at the top of the Nielsen ratings (an accomplishment later matched only by The Andy Griffith Show in 1968 and Seinfeld in 1998). This library is available in the Lucille Ball Catalog, which is located in the Whacky Dames, the the Feature Films Catalogs, and the Catalog of Stars.

      4/11/18 - Today I added all fifteen episodes of Season 14 of the Bonanza Library. This completes the library until if and/or when I find more of the 88 missing episodes. Bonanza was an NBC television western series that ran from 1959 to 1973. Lasting 14 seasons and 431 episodes, Bonanza is NBC's longest-running western, and ranks overall as the second-longest-running western series on U.S. network television (behind CBS' Gunsmoke), and within the top 10 longest-running, live-action American series. The show continues to air in syndication. The show is set around the 1860s and it centers on the wealthy Cartwright family, who live in the area of Virginia City, Nevada, bordering Lake Tahoe. The series stars Lorne Greene, Dan Blocker, Michael Landon, Pernell Roberts (who left after six seasons), and later David Canary and Mitch Vogel. This library is located in the Western Shows and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs.

      4/5/18 - I finished my site maintenance last night and decided to restore the Wanted: Dead or Alive library with nineteen episodes so far. Wanted Dead or Alive was an American Western television series starring Steve McQueen (as the bounty hunter Josh Randall) in his first television vehicle, the series only lasted three seasons because McQueen was soon after snapped up by the big screen and never looked back. The black-and-white program was a spin-off of a March 1958 episode of Trackdown, a 1957–59 western series starring Robert Culp. Both series were produced by Four Star Television in association with CBS Television. This library is located in the Western Shows and the Action and Adventure Catalogs. At one time I had the entire series from Hulu - but Hulu moved their collection into the "Pay-Per-View" category, so I lost the library. I then restored eight episodes but lost them all as well. These are all from the Internet Archive, so I have hopes that they will last a while.

      4/3/18 - Today I decided to take a short break from my site maintenance chores to add five more sketches to the Honeymooners Sketches library. These are original Honeymooners sketches from Cavalcade of Stars and the Jackie Gleason Show. The library is located in the Jackie Gleason Catalog which resides in both the Comedy Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. The added episodes are dated: 1/24/53
      4/11/53
      5/9/53
      6/13/53
      6/18/53
      9/19/53

      3/30/18 - UPDATE: No doubt some of you have noticed that I haven't posted any new content since last Saturday. The reason is that over the weekend I conducted a comprehensive survey of the site and discovered numerous problems that I am working systematically to correct. It may be several more days before I finish the repairs. So far I have corrected several problems in the I Love Lucy, Daniel Boone, Cheyenne, Twilight Zone and several other libraries. Most of the work is still in progress.

      3/24/18 - Today I restored twenty-three episodes to the The Twilight Zone library. The Twilight Zone (1959–1964) was an American television anthology series created by Rod Serling. It is a series of unrelated stories containing drama, psychological thriller, fantasy, science fiction, suspense, and/or horror, often concluding with a macabre or unexpected twist. A popular and critical success, it introduced many Americans to common science fiction and fantasy tropes. At one time I had almost all of the series episodes from Hulu, but then they moved their collection into the "Subscribers Only" category, meaning that the only way you could view them on my site would be if you are a Hulu subscriber and you are logged into Hulu. I have episodes from Season 5 to restore so more to come. This library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog. The newly restored episodes are all of the Season 4 shows plus:

      I also wanted to mention that in the past weeks I have added three episodes to the Honeymooners sketches, dated 9/20/52, 11/08/52 and 9/25/54 to the Honeymooners Sketches library. These are original Honeymooners sketches from Cavalcade of Stars and the Jackie Gleason Show. The library is located in the Jackie Gleason Catalog which resides in both the Comedy Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      3/21/18 - Today I added twelve episodes from Seasons 2, 3 and 6 to the The Beverly Hillibillies Library. This completes the library until I find the three missing episodes.

The series starred Buddy Ebsen, Irene Ryan, Donna Douglas, and Max Baer, Jr. as a poor backwoods family who moved to Beverly Hills, California, after striking oil on their land. The Beverly Hillbillies ranked among the top 20 most-watched programs on television for eight of its nine seasons, twice ranking as the number one series of the year, with a number of episodes that remain among the most-watched television episodes of all time.This library is locate in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

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. Ths 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 6 through 8 the series, so many more to come.

      3/18/18 - Today I added 16 episodes to the I Love Lucy library. I Love Lucy was an American television sitcom starring Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, Vivian Vance, and William Frawley.

Happy Days was an American television sitcom that aired first-run from January 15, 1974, to September 24, 1984, on ABC. The series presents an idealized vision of life in the mid-1950s to mid-1960s United States. The series revolves around teenager Richie Cunningham and his family: his father, Howard, who owns a hardware store; traditional homemaker and mother, Marion; younger sister Joanie; and high school dropout, biker and suave ladies' man Arthur "Fonzie"/"The Fonz" Fonzarelli, who would eventually become the Cunninghams' upstairs tenant. The library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added episodes are all of the Season 3 and 4 episodes in the library. By the way, the original library (from Hulu) did not include any of the ones I posted today.

      3/16/18 - Today I restored fifteen episodes to Season 3 of the Have Gun Will Travel library. Have Gun – Will Travel (1957-1963) was an American Western television series that aired on CBS. It was rated number three or number four in the Nielsen ratings every year of its first four seasons. The series follows the adventures of a man calling himself "Paladin" (played by Richard Boone), taking his name from that of the foremost knight warriors in Charlemagne's court. He is a gentleman gunfighter who travels around the Old West working as a mercenary gunfighter for people who hire him to solve their problems for them. Although Paladin will charge steep fees to clients who can afford to hire him, typically $1000 per job, he will provide his services for free (i.e., pro bono) to poor people who need his help. Like many westerns, the television show was set during a nebulous period after the Civil War. This is my favorite western series. In my opinion, it is the best "thinking man's" adventure series ever produced. I can't recommend it highly enough. I have eleven more episodes to restore to compete the library. The library is located in the Western TV Shows catalog. The added episodes are:
      Tiger
      Unforgiven
      The Naked Gun
      Fort Benjamin

      3/14/18 - Today I restored twenty-two episodes to my Little House on the Prairie library, including a few episodes that weren't in the original library. Little House on the Prairie was a series of American children's novels written by Laura Ingalls Wilder based on her childhood in the northern Midwest during the 1870s and 1880s. The television series was a loose adaptation Wilder's novels. Stars: Melissa Gilbert, Michael Landon, Rachel Lindsay Greenbush. The restored library is located in the Western Shows and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs.

      3/11/18 - Today I added the last seventeen episodes to the Babylon 5 library. This completes the library with all 110 episodes intact. I also add five TV Movies to the library (including the Pilot episodes of the series). Set between the years 2257 and 2262, Babylon 5 depicts a future where Earth has sovereign states, and a unifying Earth government. Colonies within the solar system, and beyond, make up the Earth Alliance, and contact has been made with other spacefaring species. The ensemble cast portray alien ambassadorial staff and humans assigned to the 5-mile long Babylon 5 space station, a center for trade and diplomacy. Described as "one of the most complex programs on television", the various story arcs drew upon the prophesies, religious zealotry, racial tensions, social pressures, and political rivalries which existed within each of their cultures, to create a contextual framework for the motivations and consequences of the protagonists' actions. With a strong emphasis on character development set against a backdrop of conflicting ideologies on multiple levels. At the beginning of Season 2, Captain John Sheridan (Bruce Boxleitner) is installed as the new military governor of the station. This library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog.

      3/10/18 - Today I added the nine remaining available episodes to Season 13 of Bonanza Library. Bonanza was an NBC television western series that ran from 1959 to 1973. Lasting 14 seasons and 431 episodes, Bonanza is NBC's longest-running western, and ranks overall as the second-longest-running western series on U.S. network television (behind CBS' Gunsmoke), and within the top 10 longest-running, live-action American series. The show continues to air in syndication. The show is set around the 1860s and it centers on the wealthy Cartwright family, who live in the area of Virginia City, Nevada, bordering Lake Tahoe. The series stars Lorne Greene, Dan Blocker, Michael Landon, Pernell Roberts (who left after six seasons), and later David Canary and Mitch Vogel. I still have Seasons 13 and 14 to post - so many more to come. This library is located in the Western Shows and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs. I have several Season 14 episodes to add, so more to come! The added episodes are:

      Saddle Stiff

      That didn't take very long, so I decided to also add The Informer, Hold That Tiger, Late Inspector General and Heavy Water to the Hogan's Heroes library. Hogan's Heroes (1965-1971) was an American television sitcom set in a German prisoner of war (POW) camp during World War II. It ran on the CBS network. Bob Crane starred as Colonel Robert E. Hogan, co-ordinating an international crew of Allied prisoners running a Special Operations group from the camp. Werner Klemperer played Colonel Wilhelm Klink, the incompetent commandant of the camp, and John Banner was the inept sergeant-of-the-guard, Hans Schultz. This library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Comedy Shows Catalogs.

      3/8/18 - Today I created a new Night Court Library with the first twenty available episodes of Seasons 1 and 2. Night Court (1984–1992) is an American television situation comedy that aired on NBC. The setting was the night shift of a Manhattan municipal court, Criminal Court Part 2, presided over by a young, unorthodox judge, Harold T. "Harry" Stone (played by Harry Anderson). The series was created by comedy writer Reinhold Weege, who had previously worked on Barney Miller in the 1970s and early 1980s. The new library is located in the Comedy Shows Catalog. I have about 100 episodes yet to post so many more to come.

      I also ceated a new One Happy Family Library with two episodes of this limited series. One Happy Family (1961) is an American sitcom television series that aired from January 13 until June 23, 1961. A meteorologist and his wife live with her parents and grandparents. There were only 15 episodes of the series. These two are the only ones I have ever found. The new library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

      3/7/18 - Today I created a new Cheyenne Library with all fifteen episodes of Season 1. Cheyenne (1955–1963) was an American western television series of 108 black-and-white episodes broadcast on ABC from 1955 to 1963. The show was the first hour-long western, and was the first hour-long dramatic series of any kind, with continuing characters, to last more than one season. The show starred Clint Walker as Cheyenne Bodie, a physically large cowboy with a gentle spirit in search of frontier justice who wanders the American West. This is the first time I have been able to find episodes of the series and, unfortunately, these are all I have found so far. I will keep my eyes open. The new library is located in the Western Shows Catalog.

      3/6/19 - Today I added all nine of the missing episodes to the Johnny Ringo Library which completes the library with all of the episodes included. Johnny Ringo (1959-1960) was an American Western television series starring Don Durant that aired on CBS. It is loosely based on the life of the notorious gunfighter and outlaw Johnny Ringo, also known as John Peters Ringo or John B. Ringgold, who tangled with Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, and Buckskin Franklin Leslie. This fictional account imagines that Ringo put aside his gunfighting ways to become the 27-year-old sheriff of fictitious Velardi in the Arizona Territory. Ringo has two deputies: William Charles, Jr., or Cully, played by Mark Goddard and Case Thomas, portrayed by Terence De Marney, who is also a storekeeper and formerly the town drunk. Case's daughter, Laura Thomas, played by Karen Sharpe, is Ringo's girlfriend in the series. Michael Hinn appeared in nine episodes as George Haig. This library is located in the Western Shows Catalog. The added episodes are:

      Arrival
      Die Twice
      Mrs. Ringo

      3/5/18 - Today I added the first sixteen episodes to Season 6 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. Recently I discovered and bookmarked a large cache of episodes and will continue to expand the library substantially over the next few months.

      3/3/18 - Today I added al twenty-four episodes (from Hulu) to the Miami Vice library. One more Season to go. 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". People magazine stated that Miami Vice was the "first show to look really new and different since color TV was invented" This library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

      3/2/18 - Today I restored twenty-two episodes to Seasons 1 and 2 of The Twilight Zone library. The Twilight Zone (1959–1964) was an American television anthology series created by Rod Serling. It is a series of unrelated stories containing drama, psychological thriller, fantasy, science fiction, suspense, and/or horror, often concluding with a macabre or unexpected twist. A popular and critical success, it introduced many Americans to common science fiction and fantasy tropes. At one time I had almost all of the series episodes from Hulu, but then they moved their collection into the "Subscribers Only" category, meaning that the only way you could view them on my site would be if you are a Hulu subscriber and you are logged into Hulu. I have episodes from Seasons 4 and 5 to restore, and also some new episodes from Seasons 1 and 4 (which I will start posting after I finish restoring episodes from the previous library), so more to come. This library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog. The newly restored episodes are:
      Last Flight
      Purple Testament
      Walter Jameson
      People Are Alike
      Nightmare

      Rip Van Winkle
      The Silence

      3/1/18 - Today I added the last seventeen available episodes to Seasons 6 and 7 of the Mission: Impossible library. This completes the library until I find more of the missing episodes. 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.

      2/27/18 - Today I added all seventeen available episodes to Season 8 of the Perry Mason Library. This completes the library until I find more of the missing episodes. In 1956, Raymond Burr auditioned for the role of District Attorney Hamilton Burger in Perry Mason, a new courtroom drama based on the highly successful novels written and created by Erle Stanley Gardner that was to air on CBS. The producers of the show allowed Burr to try for the title role and when Gardner, who was present at the audition, saw him he declared, "He is Perry Mason." Burr eventually won the role with which he was most closely identified. This library can be found in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog, and also in the Raymond Burr Catalog, which is also located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog, plus the Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. The added episodes are all of them in Season 8.

      2/25/18 - Upon hearing about the passing of Nanette Fabray I decided to create a new Nanette Fabray Catalog, including six of her appearances with Sid Caesar, four episodes of The Carol Burnett Show, and six Other TV Appearances on such shows as What's My Line?, Password, Hollywood Palace, I've Got a Secret, and the Jack Benny Program. Nanette Fabray (born Ruby Bernadette Nanette Fabares; October 27, 1920 – February 22, 2018) was an American actress, singer and dancer. She began her career performing in vaudeville as a child and became a musical theatre actress during the 1940s and 1950s, winning a Tony Award in 1949 for her performance in Love Life. In the mid-1950s, she served as Sid Caesar's comedic partner on Caesar's Hour, for which she won three Emmy Awards, as well as co-starring with Fred Astaire in the film musical The Band Wagon. From 1979 to 1984, she appeared as Katherine Romano on the TV series One Day at a Time. Fabray overcame a significant hearing impairment and was a long-time advocate for the rights of the deaf and hard of hearing. Her honors representing the handicapped include the President's Distinguished Service Award and the Eleanor Roosevelt Humanitarian Award. The new Catalog is located in the Whacky Dames Catalog which can be accessed via the Comedy Shows Catalog.

      2/23/18 - Today I added seven episodes to Season 9 of The Beverly Hillibillies Library. The Beverly Hillbillies was an American sitcom originally broadcast on CBS for nine seasons. The series starred Buddy Ebsen, Irene Ryan, Donna Douglas, and Max Baer, Jr. as a poor backwoods family who moved to Beverly Hills, California, after striking oil on their land. The Beverly Hillbillies ranked among the top 20 most-watched programs on television for eight of its nine seasons, twice ranking as the number one series of the year, with a number of episodes that remain among the most-watched television episodes of all time. I still have three Seasons to complete, so more to come. This library is locate in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added episodes are:

      Doctor, Cure My Frog
      Take This Frog?
      The Frog Family
      Farm in the Ocean
      Welcome to the Family
      Love Finds Jane Hathaway

      I also added five episodes to the Rocky Jones, Space Ranger Library. Rocky Jones, Space Ranger (1954) was an American science fiction television serial originally broadcast in syndication from February to November 1954. The show lasted for only two seasons and, though syndicated sporadically, dropped into obscurity. Because it was recorded on film rather than being broadcast live as were most other TV space operas of the day, it has survived in reasonably good condition. The film format also allowed more elaborate special effects and sets, exterior scenes, and much better continuity. The show was based on the exploits of clean-cut, square-jawed Rocky Jones, the best known of the Space Rangers. These were Earth-based space policemen who patrolled the United Worlds of the Solar System in the not-too-distant future. Rocky and his crew would routinely blast-off in a V-2-like chemically-fueled, upright rocketship, the Orbit Jet XV-2 which was later replaced by the nearly identical Silver Moon XV-3, on missions to moons and planetoids where the odds of success seemed remote yet they would always prevail. Although they might destroy a rocketship full of unseen bad guys, their space pistols were never fired at people, and conflicts were always resolved with fistfights. The added episodes are:

      The Gypsy Moon
      Beyond the Moon
      Silver Needle in the Sky
      Crash of the Moons
      Manhunt in Space

      2/21/18 - Today I created a new Midsomer Murders Library with the first eighteen available episodes, which constitute all but 1 (S4 Ep4) of the first 4 seasons of the series. The Midsomer Murder stories are set in modern-day England and revolve around Tom Barnaby's (later, John Barnaby's) efforts to solve numerous murders that take place in the idyllic, picturesque but deadly villages of the fictional county of Midsomer. The Barnabys have worked with several different sergeants throughout the run of the show: Sgt Gavin Troy (Daniel Casey), Sgt Dan Scott (John Hopkins), Sgt Ben Jones (Jason Hughes), Sgt Charlie Nelson (Gwilym Lee) and currently Sgt Jamie Winter (Nick Hendrix). Incidently, my wife originally told me about this series, which she had watched on PBS for years - and then I discovered that it is on Netflix and actually just watched the first episode last week. The day before yesterday I got an email from a frequent correspondent asking about the series and decided to look around for it and was surprised to find 99 of the 121 episodes of the full series (so far - the show is still playing in it's 20th season). I am going to leave these up for now and hold off adding too the series for the time being because I am concerned that it will likely vanish, since it is such a recent - in fact current - show). The new library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama.

      2/20/2018 - Today I created a new Jonny Quest Library with all twenty-six episodes of the complete series. Jonny Quest (1964-1965) is the original American science fiction/adventure animated television series that started the Jonny Quest franchise. It was the first of several Hanna-Barbera action-based adventure shows, which would later include Space Ghost, The Herculoids, and Birdman and the Galaxy Trio, and ran on ABC in primetime on early Friday nights for one season from 1964 to 1965. The new library is located in the Cartoon and the Kid Shows Catalogs.

      2/18/18 - Today I added eight episodes of Season 5 of the I Love Lucy library. I Love Lucy was an American television sitcom starring Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, Vivian Vance, and William Frawley. The black-and-white series originally ran on CBS. After the series ended in 1957, a modified version continued for three more seasons with 13 one-hour specials; it ran from 1957 to 1960. It was first known as The Lucille Ball-Desi Arnaz Show and later in reruns as The Lucy–Desi Comedy Hour. The show, which was the first scripted television program to be shot on 35 mm film in front of a studio audience, won five Emmy Awards and received numerous nominations. I Love Lucy was the most watched show in the United States in four of its six seasons, and it was the first to end its run at the top of the Nielsen ratings (an accomplishment later matched only by The Andy Griffith Show in 1968 and Seinfeld in 1998). I still have most of the Season 6 episodes bookmarked, so more to come! This library is available in the Lucille Ball Catalog, which is located in the Whacky Dames, the the Feature Films Catalogs, and the Catalog of Stars.

      2/17/18 - Today I went to add episodes too the Happy Days library and discovered that Hulu had taken their collection down, meaning that most of the library had vanished! So I went looking for them on Daily Motion and found a large cache pf episodes. I have added 20 of them to start and will continue to add to the library over the coming months. Happy Days was an American television sitcom that aired first-run from January 15, 1974, to September 24, 1984, on ABC. The series presents an idealized vision of life in the mid-1950s to mid-1960s United States. The series revolves around teenager Richie Cunningham and his family: his father, Howard, who owns a hardware store; traditional homemaker and mother, Marion; younger sister Joanie; and high school dropout, biker and suave ladies' man Arthur "Fonzie"/"The Fonz" Fonzarelli, who would eventually become the Cunninghams' upstairs tenant. The library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added episodes are:
      Richie's Cup

      Hardware Jungle
      Fonzie Drops In
      Breaking Up
      Because She's There

      2/16/18 - Today I added twelve episodes to the Have Gun Will Travel library. Have Gun – Will Travel (1957-1963) was an American Western television series that aired on CBS. It was rated number three or number four in the Nielsen ratings every year of its first four seasons. The series follows the adventures of a man calling himself "Paladin" (played by Richard Boone), taking his name from that of the foremost knight warriors in Charlemagne's court. He is a gentleman gunfighter who travels around the Old West working as a mercenary gunfighter for people who hire him to solve their problems for them. Although Paladin will charge steep fees to clients who can afford to hire him, typically $1000 per job, he will provide his services for free (i.e., pro bono) to poor people who need his help. Like many westerns, the television show was set during a nebulous period after the Civil War. This is my favorite western series. In my opinion, it is the best "thinking man's" adventure series ever produced. I can't recommend it highly enough. A while back discovered a cache of episodes on Dailymotion that will allow me for the first time to complete the entire series, so lots more to come! The library is located in the Western TV Shows catalog. The added episodes are:
      Snare for Murder
      Ballad of Oscar Wilde
      Something to Live For

      Death of a Gunfighter
      The Chase

      2/14/18 - Last night, after hearing of the passing of comedian, Marty Allen, at the age of 95, I decided to create a new Marty Allen Library to celebrate his career with ten TV appearances to start. Morton David Alpern (March 23, 1922 – February 12, 2018), better known as Marty Allen, was an American comedian, actor, and philanthropist. He worked in nightclubs with his partner, Steve Rossi, as a dramatic actor in television roles, and was once called "The Darling of Daytime TV". During his comedic career, Allen would go on tours to military hospitals and perform for veterans or active military personnel. Allen was also a known philanthropist, donating to causes such as the American Cancer Society, The Heart Fund, March of Dimes, Fight for Sight, Cerebral Palsy, and was on the board of the Epilepsy Foundation. The new library is located in the Comedy Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. I have many more shows and clips to post, so more to come!

      2/11/18 - Today I added the last nine episodes to Season 10 of the Bonanza Library. Bonanza was an NBC television western series that ran from 1959 to 1973. Lasting 14 seasons and 431 episodes, Bonanza is NBC's longest-running western, and ranks overall as the second-longest-running western series on U.S. network television (behind CBS' Gunsmoke), and within the top 10 longest-running, live-action American series. The show continues to air in syndication. The show is set around the 1860s and it centers on the wealthy Cartwright family, who live in the area of Virginia City, Nevada, bordering Lake Tahoe. The series stars Lorne Greene, Dan Blocker, Michael Landon, Pernell Roberts (who left after six seasons), and later David Canary and Mitch Vogel. I still have Seasons 13 and 14 to post - so many more to come. This library is located in the Western Shows and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs. I have several some Season 13 and 14 episodes to add, so more to come! The added episodes are:

      The Mountain Lion
      Five Candles
      The Wish
      The Deserter
      Emily
      The Unwanted
      Speak No Evil
      The Fence
      A Ride in the Sun

      2/10/18 - Today I added 5 episodes to the General Electric Theater library. General Electric Theater was an American anthology series hosted by Ronald Reagan that was broadcast on CBS radio and television. The series was sponsored by General Electric's Department of Public Relations. The television version of the program was broadcast from February 1, 1953, until May 27, 1962. Each of the estimated 209 television episodes was an adaptation of a novel, short story, play, film, or magazine fiction. An exception was the 1954 episode "Music for Christmas", which featured choral director Fred Waring and his group The Pennsylvanians performing Christmas music. On September 26, 1954, Ronald Reagan debuted as the only host of the program. GE added a host to provide continuity in the anthology format. This library is located in the Television Drama Catalog. While I was in the library, I also added Season Listings to all of the library pages to make navigation easier. The added episodes are:

      Daphne Rutledge
      Winner by Decision
      Emergency Call
      Bitter Choice
      Strange Witness

      Since that didn't take very long, I also decided to add the nine available episodes (from Hulu) of Season 5 of the The Odd Couple library. This completes the library with all of the available episodes. 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.

      And finally, I added two sketches, dated 10/24/53 and 4/10/54 to the Honeymooners Sketches library. These are original Honeymooners sketches from Cavalcade of Stars and the Jackie Gleason Show. The library is located in the Jackie Gleason Catalog which resides in both the Comedy Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      2/8/18 - Today I added all sixteen episodes to Season 6 of the Mister Ed Library which completes the library with all 145 episodes included. The Mister Ed show concept was derived from a series of short stories by children's author Walter R. Brooks, which began with The Talking Horse in the September 18, 1937, issue of Liberty magazine. Brooks is otherwise best known for the Freddy the Pig series of children's novels, which likewise featured talking animals that interact with humans. The show's concept resembles that of the Francis the Talking Mule movies in which an equine title character talks, but only to one person, thus causing a variety of opportunities and frustrations. Comedian George Burns financed the original pilot for Mr Ed which was shot at his McCadden Studio in Hollywood. Scott McKay played Wilbur. Jack Benny was also involved behind the scenes. Unable to sell the show to a network, the producer decided to sell the show into syndication first. He managed to get single sponsor identification for the program on over 100 stations. The show was recast with Alan Young in the lead. Production began in November 1960. The first 26 episodes were well received enough for the show to be picked up by CBS. This library is located in the Comedy Shows Catalog and also in the Alan Young Catalog which is also located in the Comedy Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      2/7/18 - Today I added the ten remaining available episodes to the I Married Joan library. This is only the second time I have added too the library in a couple of years, and it completes the library until I find more of the missing eisodes.. I Married Joan was an American sitcom that aired on NBC from 1952 to 1955. It starred veteran vaudeville, film, and radio comedienne-comedy actress Joan Davis as the manic, scatterbrained wife of a mild-mannered community judge, the Honorable Bradley Stevens (Jim Backus). This library is located in the Whacky Dames Catalog. The added episodes are:
      Acrobats
      Draft Board
      122TheStamp
      Eviction
      Business Executive
      Quick Changes
      The Shotgun
      Double Wedding

      2/5/18 - Today I restored the eighteen remaining available episodes to Season 3 of The Twilight Zone library. The Twilight Zone (1959–1964) was an American television anthology series created by Rod Serling. It is a series of unrelated stories containing drama, psychological thriller, fantasy, science fiction, suspense, and/or horror, often concluding with a macabre or unexpected twist. A popular and critical success, it introduced many Americans to common science fiction and fantasy tropes. At one time I had almost all of the series episodes from Hulu, but then they moved their collection into the "Subscribers Only" category, meaning that the only way you could view them on my site would be if you are a Hulu subscriber and you are logged into Hulu. I have episodes from Seasons 4 and 5 to restore, so more to come. This library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog. The newly restored episodes are:
      Two
      The Arrival

      1/30/18 - Today I added all eighteen available episodes to Season 5 of the Babylon 5 library. Set between the years 2257 and 2262, it depicts a future where Earth has sovereign states, and a unifying Earth government. Colonies within the solar system, and beyond, make up the Earth Alliance, and contact has been made with other spacefaring species. The ensemble cast portray alien ambassadorial staff and humans assigned to the 5-mile long Babylon 5 space station, a center for trade and diplomacy. Described as "one of the most complex programs on television", the various story arcs drew upon the prophesies, religious zealotry, racial tensions, social pressures, and political rivalries which existed within each of their cultures, to create a contextual framework for the motivations and consequences of the protagonists' actions. With a strong emphasis on character development set against a backdrop of conflicting ideologies on multiple levels. At the beginning of Season 2, Captain John Sheridan (Bruce Boxleitner) is installed as the new military governor of the station. This library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog. I still have some missing episodes to fill in and 5 TV movies based on the series, bookmarked, so more to come!

      1/28/18 - Today I added the twelve remaining episodes of Season 5 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. Recently I discovered and bookmarked a large cache of episodes and will continue to expand the library substantially over the next few months. The added episodes are:
      Baylor Crowfoot

      1/28/18 - Late last night I happened to check on my Basil Rathbone Film Library and discovered that ALL of the Basil Rathbone Sherlock Holmes films were gone except for one - The Secret Weapon (1943)! So this morning I started restoring the library (which also comprises the bulk of the Sherlock Holmes Film library) and spent most of the day tracking down all of the movies. I finally completed the task late this afternoon. All of the Basil Rathborn Sherlock Holmes films are now back in the libraries. The Basil Rathbone Film Library is located in the Basil Rathboome Catalog which is available in the Mystery & Crime Drama and the Feature Films Catalogs, and also the Catalog of Stars.

      1/27/18 - Today I added the remaining twenty-three episodes to the Maverick Library. This completes the library with all but three of the full series episodes. Maverick (1957-1962) was an American Western television series with comedic overtones which ran on ABC and starred James Garner as Bret Maverick, an adroitly articulate cardsharp. Eight episodes into the first season, he was joined by Jack Kelly as his brother Bart Maverick, and from that point on, Garner and Kelly alternated leads from week to week, sometimes teaming up for the occasional two-brother episode. The Mavericks were poker players from Texas who traveled all over the American Old West and on Mississippi riverboats, constantly getting into and out of life-threatening trouble of one sort or another, usually involving money, women, or both. They would typically find themselves weighing a financial windfall against a moral dilemma. More often than not, their consciences trumped their wallets since both Mavericks were intrinsically ethical. When Garner left the series after the third season due to a legal dispute, Roger Moore was added to the cast as their cousin Beau Maverick. Robert Colbert appeared later in the fourth season as a third Maverick brother, Brent Maverick. No more than two of the series leads ever appeared together in the same episode, and usually only one. This library is located in the Western TV Shows catalog. The added episodes are ones in the the last column on Page #4, and all of them on Page #5 of the library.

      1/24/18 - Today I created a new Abbott & Costello Sketches library with twenty-four sketches from The Colgate Comedy Hour. Abbot & Costello's patter routine "Who's on First?" is one of the best-known comedy routines of all time, and set the framework for many of their best-known comedy bits. In January 1951, Abbott and Costello joined the roster of rotating hosts of The Colgate Comedy Hour on NBC. (Eddie Cantor and Martin and Lewis were among the others.) Each show was a live hour of vaudeville in front of an audience, revitalizing the comedians' performances and giving their old routines a new sparkle. These sketches are all from The Colgate Comedy Hour. The new library is located in the Abbott & Costello Catalog, which can be found in the Comedy Shows and Feature Films Catalogs and also the Catalog of Stars. I have also created a new Sketch Comedy Catalog, which contains the new library, along with several other Sketch Comedy shows, and is also located in the Comedy Shows Catalog.

      1/22/18 - Today I completed the Leave It to Beaver library with the remaining eighteen episodes of Season 6. Leave It to Beaver was an American television situation comedy about an inquisitive and often naïve boy, Theodore "The Beaver" Cleaver (portrayed by Jerry Mathers), and his adventures at home, in school, and around his suburban neighborhood. The show also starred Barbara Billingsley and Hugh Beaumont as Beaver's parents, June and Ward Cleaver, and Tony Dow as Beaver's brother Wally. The show has attained an iconic status in the United States, with the Cleavers exemplifying the idealized suburban family of the mid-20th century.

      1/21/18 - Today I added twelve episodes too the Alfred Hitchcock's Suspicion Library. This increases the size of the library almost three-fold, from 7 to 19 episodes. I hope to find more and will keep looking for them. Suspicion is the title of an American television mystery drama series which aired on the NBC from 1957 through 1959. The executive producer of Suspicion was film director Alfred Hitchcock. The program was hosted by actor Dennis O'Keefe from 1957 through 1958. In 1959, Walter Abel became the host. The one hour long program, like others offered by Hitchcock, was designed to play on peoples fears and suspicions. This library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror and the Television Drama Catalogs, and also in the Alfred Hitchcock Catalog, which can also be found in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog, plus the Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      1/17/18 - Today I added the first thirteen episodes too Season 7 of 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.

      1/16/18 - Today I added The Vulcan Affair, The Neptune Affair and King of Knaves, plus all sixteen episodes of Season 4 to 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. The added episodes are the ones listed above and all of the Season 4 episodes. This completes the library with all 105 episodes intact.

      1/14/18 - Today I added twenty-one episodes to Season 8 of The Beverly Hillibillies Library. The Beverly Hillbillies was an American sitcom originally broadcast on CBS for nine seasons. The series starred Buddy Ebsen, Irene Ryan, Donna Douglas, and Max Baer, Jr. as a poor backwoods family who moved to Beverly Hills, California, after striking oil on their land. The Beverly Hillbillies ranked among the top 20 most-watched programs on television for eight of its nine seasons, twice ranking as the number one series of the year, with a number of episodes that remain among the most-watched television episodes of all time. I still have four Seasons to complete, so more to come. This library is locate in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added episodes are:

      1/13/18 - Today I added twenty-one episodes to Season 9 of the Perry Mason Library. In 1956, Raymond Burr auditioned for the role of District Attorney Hamilton Burger in Perry Mason, a new courtroom drama based on the highly successful novels written and created by Erle Stanley Gardner that was to air on CBS. The producers of the show allowed Burr to try for the title role and when Gardner, who was present at the audition, saw him he declared, "He is Perry Mason." Burr eventually won the role with which he was most closely identified. This library can be found in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog, and also in the Raymond Burr Catalog, which is also located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog, plus the Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. I realized today that I had not found any Season 4 or Season 8 episodes, so I conducted a search and found a dozen or so Episodes of Season 8 - so more to come! The added episodes are all of them in Season 9.

      1/12/18 - Today I added fifteen episodes too the The Real McCoys library. The Real McCoys revolves around the lives of a family from the Appalachian Mountains who originally hailed from fictional Smokey Corners, West Virginia. The McCoys moved to California and became dirt farmers. The family consisted of Grandpa Amos McCoy (Walter Brennan); his grandson Luke (Richard Crenna), Luke's new bride Kate (Kathy Nolan), Luke's teenage sister Tallahassie "Hassie" (Lydia Reed), and his 11-year-old brother Little Luke (Michael Winkelman). The double-naming of the brothers was explained in the first episode by the elder Luke: Because their parents were so excited over the birth of the younger boy, "they forgot all about me!" Only Crenna was in every episode. I still have numerous episodes yet to post so more to come! The restored library is located in the Family Comedy & Drama Shows Catalog. These are the last of the episodes that I had bookmarked, but there are many of them missing, I will continue to search for them. The added episodes are all of them from Season 5 and Season 6 in the library.

      1/9/18 - Today I restored thirteen episodes too the The Twilight Zone library. The Twilight Zone (1959–1964) was an American television anthology series created by Rod Serling. It is a series of unrelated stories containing drama, psychological thriller, fantasy, science fiction, suspense, and/or horror, often concluding with a macabre or unexpected twist. A popular and critical success, it introduced many Americans to common science fiction and fantasy tropes. At one time I had almost all of the series episodes from Hulu, but then they moved their collection into the "Subscribers Only" category, meaning that the only way you could view them on my site would be if you are a Hulu subscriber and you are logged into Hulu. I subsequently took all of the episodes down except for the pilot, which was from another source. Eventually I found 21 more episodes - and recently found a large cache of them. I will continue to expand the library over the next few months. This library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog. The added episodes are:

Based on the memoir of the same name by Eliot Ness and Oscar Fraley, it fictionalized Ness' experiences as a Prohibition agent, fighting crime in Chicago in the 1930s with the help of a special team of agents handpicked for their courage, moral character and incorruptibility, nicknamed the Untouchables.

This library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog and the Action and Adventure Catalog.

      1/7/18 - Today I added ten episodes to the Jack Paar library. Jack Harold Paar (May 1, 1918 – January 27, 2004) was an American author, radio and television comedian and talk show host, best known for his stint as host of The Tonight Show from 1957 to 1962. Time magazine's obituary of him noted that: "His fans would remember him as the fellow who split talk show history into two eras: Before Paar and Below Paar." NBC asked Paar to succeed Steve Allen as host of The Tonight Show in July 1957. With Steve Allen's success as the first host of The Tonight Show, NBC gave him his own prime time variety hour in June 1956. Over the next seven months Allen's Tonight duties were shorted to three nights a week. With this heavy work load and his new show a success Allen departed Tonight in January 1957. For the next six months NBC renamed and replaced it's late night programing with a multi-hosted multi-city based talk show which became a huge embarrassing failure. In need of a hit the network soon returned to a proven formula by reviving Tonight and hiring Jack Paar. He would remain as host until 1962. The new library is located in the Comedy Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. The added episodes are:
      w/Betty Clooney (9/8/54)

The series is one of three interrelated shows about rural characters created by Paul Henning. Petticoat Junction was created upon the success of Henning's previous rural/urban-themed sitcom The Beverly Hillbillies (1962–1971).

      12/31/17 - Today I created a new Mad TV library with all seventy of the available episodes. Mad TV (1995-2016) (stylized as MADtv) is an American comedy sketch television series originally inspired by Mad magazine. The show featured animated Spy vs. Spy and Don Martin cartoon shorts as well as images of Alfred E. Neuman in earlier seasons, although the sketch comedy rarely had any relation to the magazine's content. It's first TV broadcast was on October 14, 1995. These videos are all courtesy of CW Seed, contain commercials (sorry about that), and are auto-play. Unfortunately, the CW Network's Season and Episode numbering system doesn't line up with the numbering used in the various databases I consult with for this kind of information - in fact the databases don't ahow as many episodes in some seasons as CW claims exist. Also, the information available concerning air dates and plot summaries is very sketchy at CW and the databases - and varies from source to source - so I decided to leave most of it out. I have to confess that I never watched this program during it's television run, but I have been watching episodes lately on the CW Network Roku channel, and have found them to be quite hilarious, so I decided to add them too the site.

      12/30/17 - Today I added twenty-one episodes to Season 5 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. Recently I discovered and bookmarked a large cache of episodes and will continue to expand the library substantially over the next few months. The added episodes are:

      12/28/17 - Today I added ten episodes to the Steve Allen Show library. Stephen Valentine Patrick William Allen (December 26, 1921 – October 30, 2000) was an American television personality, radio personality, musician, composer, actor, comedian, writer, and advocate of scientific skepticism. He achieved national fame as the first host of The Tonight Show, the first late night television talk show in September 1954. Allen essentially invented the television talk show, but before that, he was a pioneer in the musical variety show format. Over the years, his program assumed many guises - In the 1960's his show at the Steve Allen Theater in Hollywood was a favorite haunt of your's truely. I was a huge fan and I used to ride my bike to Hollywood to be in the audience! Later I drove :-) I have recently come across a trove of Steve Allen Show episodes that span the spectrum of the many versions of the program. Some of the ones to come are shows that I attended in person! There are 3 of them in this batch. This library is located in the Steve Allen Catalog which is available via Comedy Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. The added episodes are all of them on the 3rd library page.

      12/25/17 - Today I added fourteen episodes to Seasons 14 and 15 of The Jack Benny Program library. The Jack Benny Program (1950-1965), starring Jack Benny, was a radio-TV comedy series that ran for more than three decades and is generally regarded as a high-water mark in 20th-century American comedy. Jack Benny made his TV debut in 1949 with a local appearance on Los Angeles station KTTV, then a CBS affiliate. In October 1950, he made his full network debut over CBS Television. Benny's television shows were occasional broadcasts in his early seasons on TV, as he was still firmly dedicated to radio. The regular and continuing Jack Benny Program was telecast on CBS from October 28, 1950 to September 15, 1964 (finally becoming a weekly show in the 1960-1961 season), and on NBC from September 25, 1964 to September 10, 1965.

      12/23/17 - Today I added twenty-eight episodes to the Maverick Library. Maverick (1957-1962) was an American Western television series with comedic overtones which ran on ABC and starred James Garner as Bret Maverick, an adroitly articulate cardsharp. Eight episodes into the first season, he was joined by Jack Kelly as his brother Bart Maverick, and from that point on, Garner and Kelly alternated leads from week to week, sometimes teaming up for the occasional two-brother episode. The Mavericks were poker players from Texas who traveled all over the American Old West and on Mississippi riverboats, constantly getting into and out of life-threatening trouble of one sort or another, usually involving money, women, or both. They would typically find themselves weighing a financial windfall against a moral dilemma. More often than not, their consciences trumped their wallets since both Mavericks were intrinsically ethical. When Garner left the series after the third season due to a legal dispute, Roger Moore was added to the cast as their cousin Beau Maverick. Robert Colbert appeared later in the fourth season as a third Maverick brother, Brent Maverick. No more than two of the series leads ever appeared together in the same episode, and usually only one. This library is located in the Western TV Shows catalog. I have more Seasons 4 and 5 episodes, so more to come! The added episodes are all of the current Season 4 shows plus the ones listed below:

      12/21/17 - Today I added eighteen epiodes to the Have Gun Will Travel library. Have Gun – Will Travel (1957-1963) was an American Western television series that aired on CBS. It was rated number three or number four in the Nielsen ratings every year of its first four seasons. The series follows the adventures of a man calling himself "Paladin" (played by Richard Boone), taking his name from that of the foremost knight warriors in Charlemagne's court. He is a gentleman gunfighter who travels around the Old West working as a mercenary gunfighter for people who hire him to solve their problems for them. Although Paladin will charge steep fees to clients who can afford to hire him, typically $1000 per job, he will provide his services for free (i.e., pro bono) to poor people who need his help. Like many westerns, the television show was set during a nebulous period after the Civil War. This is my favorite western series. In my opinion, it is the best "thinking man's" adventure series ever produced. I can't recommend it highly enough. A while back discovered a cache of episodes on Dailymotion that will allow me for the first time to complete the entire series, so lots more to come! The library is located in the Western TV Shows catalog. The added episodes are scattered throughout Seasons 1, 2 and 5, and include:
      Three Bells
      Girl from Piccadilly
      The Teacher

      12/19/17 - Today I added ffteen episodes to Season 4 of the I Love Lucy library. I Love Lucy was an American television sitcom starring Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, Vivian Vance, and William Frawley. The black-and-white series originally ran on CBS. After the series ended in 1957, a modified version continued for three more seasons with 13 one-hour specials; it ran from 1957 to 1960. It was first known as The Lucille Ball-Desi Arnaz Show and later in reruns as The Lucy–Desi Comedy Hour. The show, which was the first scripted television program to be shot on 35 mm film in front of a studio audience, won five Emmy Awards and received numerous nominations. I Love Lucy was the most watched show in the United States in four of its six seasons, and it was the first to end its run at the top of the Nielsen ratings (an accomplishment later matched only by The Andy Griffith Show in 1968 and Seinfeld in 1998). I now have a few episodes from Seasons 5, and most of the Season 6 episodes bookmarked, so many more to come! This library is available in the Lucille Ball Catalog, which is located in the Whacky Dames, the the Feature Films Catalogs, and the Catalog of Stars.

      12/18/17 - Today I added eleven sketches to the Sid Caesar Sketches library.

Full shows of Caesar's programs are very hard, if not impossible, to come by. Fortunately, Caesar's specialty was sketch comedy - and there are abundant videos of his individual sketches. The added sketches are the last 11 in the library (last 6 on page 3, all 5 on Page 4). This library is found in the Comedy Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      12/16/17 - Today I added the nineteen remaining available episodes to Season 7 of the Perry Mason Library. In 1956, Raymond Burr auditioned for the role of District Attorney Hamilton Burger in Perry Mason, a new courtroom drama based on the highly successful novels written and created by Erle Stanley Gardner that was to air on CBS. The producers of the show allowed Burr to try for the title role and when Gardner, who was present at the audition, saw him he declared, "He is Perry Mason." Burr eventually won the role with which he was most closely identified. This library can be found in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog, and also in the Raymond Burr Catalog, which is also located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog, plus the Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

The Rifleman (1958-1963) was an American Western television program starring Chuck Connors as rancher Lucas McCain and Johnny Crawford as his son, Mark McCain. It was set in the 1870s and 1880s in the town of North Fork, New Mexico Territory. It was one of the first prime time series on American television to show a widowed parent raising a child. The program was titled to reflect McCain's use of a modified Winchester rifle. Shown at the beginning of every episode in the opening credits, McCain would fire the rifle using the lever rather than pulling the trigger. This library is located Chuck Connors Catalog which can be accessed via the Western Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. The Rifleman library is also available seperately in the Western Shows Catalog. I still have episodes from Season 5 to post in order to complete the library - so more to come! The added episodes are:

      12/12/17 - Today I added fifteen episodes to 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. The added episodes are all of them on the 2nd library page. I also wanted to say that since the last time I mentioned the Honeymooners Sketches library. I have added seven more videos to the library. The Honeymooners sketches originally aired on the DuMont network's variety series Cavalcade of Stars, which Jackie Gleason hosted, and subsequently on the CBS network's The Jackie Gleason Show, which was broadcast live in front of a theater audience. The popularity of the sketches led Gleason to rework The Honeymooners as a filmed half-hour series, which debuted October 1, 1955, on CBS, in place of the variety series. These are original Honeymooners sketches from Cavalcade of Stars and the Jackie Gleason Show. The added sketches are the last 20 in the library. Both libraries are found in the Comedy Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. The added episodes are those dated:

      2/5/55
      2/19/55

      12/11/17 - Today I added the remaining twelve available episodes to Season 4 of The Real McCoys library. The Real McCoys revolves around the lives of a family from the Appalachian Mountains who originally hailed from fictional Smokey Corners, West Virginia. The McCoys moved to California and became dirt farmers. The family consisted of Grandpa Amos McCoy (Walter Brennan); his grandson Luke (Richard Crenna), Luke's new bride Kate (Kathy Nolan), Luke's teenage sister Tallahassie "Hassie" (Lydia Reed), and his 11-year-old brother Little Luke (Michael Winkelman). The double-naming of the brothers was explained in the first episode by the elder Luke: Because their parents were so excited over the birth of the younger boy, "they forgot all about me!" Only Crenna was in every episode. I still have numerous episodes yet to post so more to come! The restored library is located in the Family Comedy & Drama Shows Catalog. The added episodes are all of them on the 7th library page. I have Season 5 left to post, so more to come!

      12/10/17 - Today I added sixteen episode too the Public Defender library. The Public Defender (1954-1955) was a half-hour 69-episode television dramatic series starring Reed Hadley (1911-1974) as stoic but driven public defender Bart Matthews, whose clients cannot otherwise afford expensive legal representation. The concept of the public defender was little known in the United States except in capital cases. A 1932 United States Supreme Court decision Powell v. Alabama clarified the need for public defenders for suspects accused of crimes which if convicted might lead to execution. The use of public defenders was broadened in 1962 in another high court case, Gideon v. Wainwright to include public defenders for all suspects charged with any level of felony, a broadening of the Powell ruling. The Public Defender purportedly based each episode on true cases, and each segment closes with a tribute to a public defender. Note: Each of these episodes, except for the last one in the list below, were uploaded as 3 videos that play in succession as a playlist. There is some overlap between the sections. This library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog. The added episodes are:

The series starred Buddy Ebsen, Irene Ryan, Donna Douglas, and Max Baer, Jr. as a poor backwoods family who moved to Beverly Hills, California, after striking oil on their land. The Beverly Hillbillies ranked among the top 20 most-watched programs on television for eight of its nine seasons, twice ranking as the number one series of the year, with a number of episodes that remain among the most-watched television episodes of all time.

      12/6/17 - Today I added all twenty-six episodes to Season 4 of the Mission: Impossible library.

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. I have 3 more seasons to post, so many more to come!

      12/4/17 - Today I added all twenty-four episodes of Season 6 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.

The series is one of three interrelated shows about rural characters created by Paul Henning. Petticoat Junction was created upon the success of Henning's previous rural/urban-themed sitcom The Beverly Hillbillies (1962–1971). The success of Petticoat Junction led to a spin-off, Green Acres (1965–1971). This library is located in the Paul Henning, Family Comedies and Dramas, Comedy Shows Catalog and the Whacky Dames Catalogs.

      12/2/17 - Today I added the last twenty-four episodes to Season 2 of The Untouchables Library.

A powerful, hard-hitting crime drama, and a landmark police series, The Untouchables won series star Robert Stack an Emmy Award for Best Actor in a Dramatic Series in 1960. This library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog and the Action and Adventure Catalog. The added episodes are the rest of the Season 2 listings starting with Larry Fay Story.

      12/1/17 - Today I added the last nineteen available episodes to the Rescue 8 library. Rescue 8 (1958–1959) was a syndicated American action drama series about Los Angeles County Fire Department Rescue Squad 8. It starred Jim Davis as fireman Wes Cameron (much later cast as Jock Ewing on CBS's Dallas), and Lang Jeffries as the fireman Skip Johnson. Nancy Rennick and Mary K. Cleary each appeared in twenty-four episodes as Patty Johnson and Susan Johnson, the wife and daughter, respectively of Skip Johnson. Rescue 8 shows more physically oriented rescues than the later, similar television series Emergency!, as firemen were not then trained as paramedics but acquired the expanded role in the early 1970s. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure Catalog. This library now has 34 of the 39 episodes that make up the series, and is complete until I find the 4 missing episodes. The added episodes are the last 5 on the first library page, and all of them on the 2nd page.

      11/30/17 - Today I added twelve episodes to the The Jack Benny Program library. The Jack Benny Program (1950-1965), starring Jack Benny, was a radio-TV comedy series that ran for more than three decades and is generally regarded as a high-water mark in 20th-century American comedy. Jack Benny made his TV debut in 1949 with a local appearance on Los Angeles station KTTV, then a CBS affiliate. In October 1950, he made his full network debut over CBS Television. Benny's television shows were occasional broadcasts in his early seasons on TV, as he was still firmly dedicated to radio. The regular and continuing Jack Benny Program was telecast on CBS from October 28, 1950 to September 15, 1964 (finally becoming a weekly show in the 1960-1961 season), and on NBC from September 25, 1964 to September 10, 1965.

      11/29/17 - Although it would appear that I haven't updated the site in several days, in fact I have been working on long-overdue maintenance tasks. Mostly finding dead links and repairing them throughout the site. Today I added the thirty-one available episodes of Season 4 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. Recently I discovered and bookmarked a large cache of episodes and will continue to expand the library substantially over the next few months.

      11/24/17 - Today I added sixteen episodes to the Steve Allen Show library. Stephen Valentine Patrick William Allen (December 26, 1921 – October 30, 2000) was an American television personality, radio personality, musician, composer, actor, comedian, writer, and advocate of scientific skepticism. He achieved national fame as the first host of The Tonight Show, the first late night television talk show in September 1954. Allen essentially invented the television talk show, but before that, he was a pioneer in the musical variety show format. Over the years, his program assumed many guises - In the 1960's his show at the Steve Allen Theater in Hollywood was a favorite haunt of your's truely. I was a huge fan and I used to ride my bike to Hollywood to be in the audience! Later I drove :-) I have recently come across a trove of Steve Allen Show episodes that span the spectrum of the many versions of the program. Some of the ones to come are shows that I attended in person! (Although I haven't gotten any of them into the library yet :-) There are a dozen more left to post, so more to come. This library is located in the Steve Allen Catalog which is available via Comedy Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. The added episodes are:

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. The history of this library is checkered at best. I built the original library with about a dozen episodes I found on the Internet Archive. About a year later I added about 60 episodes from YouTube, but they all vanished within a few weeks. Over the years since I have found single episodes here and there and eventualy had 30 episodes. Recently I discovered and bookmarked a large cache of episodes and will be expanding the library substantially over the next few months. The added episodes are:

      11/16/17 - Today I added sixteen episodes to the The Jack Benny Program library. The Jack Benny Program (1950-1965), starring Jack Benny, was a radio-TV comedy series that ran for more than three decades and is generally regarded as a high-water mark in 20th-century American comedy. Jack Benny made his TV debut in 1949 with a local appearance on Los Angeles station KTTV, then a CBS affiliate. In October 1950, he made his full network debut over CBS Television. Benny's television shows were occasional broadcasts in his early seasons on TV, as he was still firmly dedicated to radio. The regular and continuing Jack Benny Program was telecast on CBS from October 28, 1950 to September 15, 1964 (finally becoming a weekly show in the 1960-1961 season), and on NBC from September 25, 1964 to September 10, 1965.

      11/15/17 - Today I added all of the available episodes of Season 2 to the Maverick Library. Maverick (1957-1962) was an American Western television series with comedic overtones which ran on ABC and starred James Garner as Bret Maverick, an adroitly articulate cardsharp. Eight episodes into the first season, he was joined by Jack Kelly as his brother Bart Maverick, and from that point on, Garner and Kelly alternated leads from week to week, sometimes teaming up for the occasional two-brother episode. The Mavericks were poker players from Texas who traveled all over the American Old West and on Mississippi riverboats, constantly getting into and out of life-threatening trouble of one sort or another, usually involving money, women, or both. They would typically find themselves weighing a financial windfall against a moral dilemma. More often than not, their consciences trumped their wallets since both Mavericks were intrinsically ethical. When Garner left the series after the third season due to a legal dispute, Roger Moore was added to the cast as their cousin Beau Maverick. Robert Colbert appeared later in the fourth season as a third Maverick brother, Brent Maverick. No more than two of the series leads ever appeared together in the same episode, and usually only one. This library is located in the Western TV Shows catalog. This is the first time I have added to this library since April. In the past I have only had episodes from Seasons 1 and 3, but I recently found a bunch of Season 2, 4 and 5 episodes, so many more to come.

      11/13/17 - Today I restored the first sixteen episodes of Season 6 to the Have Gun Will Travel library. This completes the Season with all of the episodes intact. Have Gun – Will Travel (1957-1963) was an American Western television series that aired on CBS. It was rated number three or number four in the Nielsen ratings every year of its first four seasons. The series follows the adventures of a man calling himself "Paladin" (played by Richard Boone), taking his name from that of the foremost knight warriors in Charlemagne's court. He is a gentleman gunfighter who travels around the Old West working as a mercenary gunfighter for people who hire him to solve their problems for them. Although Paladin will charge steep fees to clients who can afford to hire him, typically $1000 per job, he will provide his services for free (i.e., pro bono) to poor people who need his help. Like many westerns, the television show was set during a nebulous period after the Civil War. This is my favorite western series. In my opinion, it is the best "thinking man's" adventure series ever produced. I can't recommend it highly enough. I have recently discovered a cache of episodes on Dailymotion that will allow me for the first time to complete the entire series, so lots more to come!

      11/12/17 - Today I added the twenty-three available episodes of Season 3 to the I Love Lucy library. I Love Lucy was an American television sitcom starring Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, Vivian Vance, and William Frawley. The black-and-white series originally ran on CBS. After the series ended in 1957, a modified version continued for three more seasons with 13 one-hour specials; it ran from 1957 to 1960. It was first known as The Lucille Ball-Desi Arnaz Show and later in reruns as The Lucy–Desi Comedy Hour. The show, which was the first scripted television program to be shot on 35 mm film in front of a studio audience, won five Emmy Awards and received numerous nominations. I Love Lucy was the most watched show in the United States in four of its six seasons, and it was the first to end its run at the top of the Nielsen ratings (an accomplishment later matched only by The Andy Griffith Show in 1968 and Seinfeld in 1998). This is the first time in almost 2 years that I have added too this library. Some of you may recall that I once had 5 Seasons from Hulu, but that collection was taken down by Hulu in December of 2015. At that time I was able to find most of the Season 1 and 2 episodes to partially restore the library. I now have a few episodes from Seasons 4 and 5, and most of the Season 6 episodes bookmarked, so many more to come! This library is available in the Lucille Ball Catalog, which is located in the Whacky Dames, the the Feature Films Catalogs, and the Catalog of Stars.

In 1956, Raymond Burr auditioned for the role of District Attorney Hamilton Burger in Perry Mason, a new courtroom drama based on the highly successful novels written and created by Erle Stanley Gardner that was to air on CBS. The producers of the show allowed Burr to try for the title role and when Gardner, who was present at the audition, saw him he declared, "He is Perry Mason." Burr eventually won the role with which he was most closely identified. This library can be found in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog, and also in the Raymond Burr Catalog, which is also located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog, plus the Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

Full shows of Caesar's programs are very hard, if not impossible, to come by. Fortunately, Caesar's specialty was sketch comedy - and there are abundant videos of his individual sketches. The added sketches are the last 14 in the library. This library is found in the Comedy Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      11/8/17 - Today I created a new The Danny Kaye Show library with twenty-one episodes to start. 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. I am also working on a Danny Kaye Film Library, which will make it's appearance in the next few days, so I also decided to create a The Danny Kaye Catalog, which is now available in the Comedy Shows, Feature Films Catalogs, and the Catalog of Stars.

      11/7/17 - Today I added the first twenty episodes to Season 4 of The Real McCoys library. The Real McCoys revolves around the lives of a family from the Appalachian Mountains who originally hailed from fictional Smokey Corners, West Virginia. The McCoys moved to California and became dirt farmers. The family consisted of Grandpa Amos McCoy (Walter Brennan); his grandson Luke (Richard Crenna), Luke's new bride Kate (Kathy Nolan), Luke's teenage sister Tallahassie "Hassie" (Lydia Reed), and his 11-year-old brother Little Luke (Michael Winkelman). The double-naming of the brothers was explained in the first episode by the elder Luke: Because their parents were so excited over the birth of the younger boy, "they forgot all about me!" Only Crenna was in every episode. I still have numerous episodes yet to post so more to come! The restored library is located in the Family Comedy & Drama Shows Catalog. The added episodes are all of them on the 6th library page. I have Season 5 left to post, so more to come!

      11/5/17 - Today I added fifteen episodes to Season 3 of 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".

The series takes place at the Shady Rest Hotel, which is run by Kate Bradley, her Uncle Joe Carson, and her three daughters Billie Jo, Bobbie Jo, and Betty Jo Bradley. The series is one of three interrelated shows about rural characters created by Paul Henning. Petticoat Junction was created upon the success of Henning's previous rural/urban-themed sitcom The Beverly Hillbillies (1962–1971).

The Untouchables (1959-1963) was an American crime drama that ran on the ABC Television Network, produced by Desilu Productions. Based on the memoir of the same name by Eliot Ness and Oscar Fraley, it fictionalized Ness' experiences as a Prohibition agent, fighting crime in Chicago in the 1930s with the help of a special team of agents handpicked for their courage, moral character and incorruptibility, nicknamed the Untouchables.

It starred Jim Davis as fireman Wes Cameron (much later cast as Jock Ewing on CBS's Dallas), and Lang Jeffries as the fireman Skip Johnson. Nancy Rennick and Mary K. Cleary each appeared in twenty-four episodes as Patty Johnson and Susan Johnson, the wife and daughter, respectively of Skip Johnson. Rescue 8 shows more physically oriented rescues than the later, similar television series Emergency!, as firemen were not then trained as paramedics but acquired the expanded role in the early 1970s. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure Catalog. I have nineteen more of these episodes bookmarked, so more to come!

      10/31/17 - Today I added all twenty-five episodes to Season 3 of the Mission: Impossible library.

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.

      10/30/17 - Today I added eleven episodes to Seasons 2, 3 and 5 of the Perry Mason Library.

The series starred Buddy Ebsen, Irene Ryan, Donna Douglas, and Max Baer, Jr. as a poor backwoods family who moved to Beverly Hills, California, after striking oil on their land. The Beverly Hillbillies ranked among the top 20 most-watched programs on television for eight of its nine seasons, twice ranking as the number one series of the year, with a number of episodes that remain among the most-watched television episodes of all time.

      10/25/17 - Today I started expanding my Steve Allen Show library by adding ten episodes from the mid-1950s'. Stephen Valentine Patrick William Allen (December 26, 1921 – October 30, 2000) was an American television personality, radio personality, musician, composer, actor, comedian, writer, and advocate of scientific skepticism. He achieved national fame as the first host of The Tonight Show, the first late night television talk show in September 1954. Allen essentially invented the television talk show, but before that, he was a pioneer in the musical variety show format. Over the years, his program assumed many guises - In the 1960's his show at the Steve Allen Theater in Hollywood was a favorite haunt of your's truely. I was a huge fan and I used to ride my bike to Hollywood to be in the audience! Later I drove :-) I have recently come across a trove of Steve Allen Show episodes that span the spectrum of the many versions of the program. Some of the ones to come are shows that I attended in person! This library is located in the Comedy Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. The added episodes are:

      First Tonight Show (9/27/54)
      Bob Hope (6/24/56)
      Elvis Presley (7/1/56)
      Buddy Hackett (7/8/56)

      Julie London (1/20/57)
      Pearl Bailey (1/27/57)

      10/23/17 - Continuing an apparent obsession with comedy stars named "Jack", today I created a new Jack Paar library with twelve examples of his television appearances to start. Jack Harold Paar (May 1, 1918 – January 27, 2004) was an American author, radio and television comedian and talk show host, best known for his stint as host of The Tonight Show from 1957 to 1962. Time magazine's obituary of him noted that: "His fans would remember him as the fellow who split talk show history into two eras: Before Paar and Below Paar." NBC asked Paar to succeed Steve Allen as host of The Tonight Show in July 1957. With Steve Allen's success as the first host of The Tonight Show, NBC gave him his own prime time variety hour in June 1956. Over the next seven months Allen's Tonight duties were shorted to three nights a week. With this heavy work load and his new show a success Allen departed Tonight in January 1957. For the next six months NBC renamed and replaced it's late night programing with a multi-hosted multi-city based talk show which became a huge embarrassing failure. In need of a hit the network soon returned to a proven formula by reviving Tonight and hiring Jack Paar. He would remain as host until 1962. The new library is located in the Comedy Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      10/21/17 - Today I added twenty-two episodes to The Jack Benny Program library. The Jack Benny Program (1950-1965), starring Jack Benny, was a radio-TV comedy series that ran for more than three decades and is generally regarded as a high-water mark in 20th-century American comedy. Jack Benny made his TV debut in 1949 with a local appearance on Los Angeles station KTTV, then a CBS affiliate. In October 1950, he made his full network debut over CBS Television. Benny's television shows were occasional broadcasts in his early seasons on TV, as he was still firmly dedicated to radio. The regular and continuing Jack Benny Program was telecast on CBS from October 28, 1950 to September 15, 1964 (finally becoming a weekly show in the 1960-1961 season), and on NBC from September 25, 1964 to September 10, 1965. This is the first time in a few years that I have added to the library. I recently found a cache of 71 episodes, so I will be expanding this library over the next few months. This library is located in the Jack Benny Catalog, which is available via the Comedy Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. The added episodes, which span several Seasons, are:

      10/20/17 - Today I added the last twelve episodes to Season 3 of the Dennis the Menace library. Dennis the Menace was an American sitcom based on the Hank Ketcham comic strip of the same name and preceded The Ed Sullivan Show on Sunday evenings on CBS from October 1959 to July 1963. The series stars Jay North as Dennis Mitchell; Herbert Anderson as his father, Henry; Gloria Henry as his mother, Alice; Joseph Kearns as George Wilson, Gale Gordon as George's brother, John Wilson, Sylvia Field as George's wife, Martha Wilson, and Sara Seegar as John's wife, Eloise Wilson. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. I have one full season left to post.

      10/19/17 - Today I added twenty episodes to Season 2 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. The history of this library is checkered at best. I built the original library with about a dozen episodes I found on the Internet Archive. About a year later I added about 60 episodes from YouTube, but they all vanished within a few weeks. Over the years since I have found single episodes here and there and eventualy had 30 episodes. Recently I discovered and bookmarked a large cache of episodes and will be expanding the library substantially over the next few months. The added episodes are:
      Bije Wilcox
      Millie Davis

      10/17/17 - Today I added the twenty-three available episodes to Season 4 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. Ths was the 2nd iteration of the Bob Newhart Show. This library can be found in the Comedy Shows Catalog. I still have the bulk of the episodes of Seasons 5 through 8 the series, so many more to come. I should mention that a few weeks ago I lost all of the Season 1 and 2 episodes when the Internet Archive playlist of those episodes was taken down. I am searching for replacemens but have had no luck so far.

      10/16/17 - Today I added te first sixteen episodes to Season 13 of the Bonanza Library. Bonanza was an NBC television western series that ran from 1959 to 1973. Lasting 14 seasons and 431 episodes, Bonanza is NBC's longest-running western, and ranks overall as the second-longest-running western series on U.S. network television (behind CBS' Gunsmoke), and within the top 10 longest-running, live-action American series. The show continues to air in syndication. The show is set around the 1860s and it centers on the wealthy Cartwright family, who live in the area of Virginia City, Nevada, bordering Lake Tahoe. The series stars Lorne Greene, Dan Blocker, Michael Landon, Pernell Roberts (who left after six seasons), and later David Canary and Mitch Vogel.

The show also starred Barbara Billingsley and Hugh Beaumont as Beaver's parents, June and Ward Cleaver, and Tony Dow as Beaver's brother Wally. The show has attained an iconic status in the United States, with the Cleavers exemplifying the idealized suburban family of the mid-20th century. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. I should mention that these new videos are all auto-play, which means they start playing as soon as you arrive at the page. If you are using an Internet Explorer browser they won't play at all - but there is a link on each library page that sends you to the Playlist for this collection, which contains the complete series and can be watched using IE. The added episodes are the first 10 from Season 6.

      10/13/17 - Today I added the twelve available episodes (from Hulu) of Season 4 to the The Odd Couple library. 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.

      10/12/17 - Today I added the remaining thirteen episodes of Season 2 of the The Rifleman library, thus completing the Season. The Rifleman (1958-1963) was an American Western television program starring Chuck Connors as rancher Lucas McCain and Johnny Crawford as his son, Mark McCain. It was set in the 1870s and 1880s in the town of North Fork, New Mexico Territory. It was one of the first prime time series on American television to show a widowed parent raising a child. The program was titled to reflect McCain's use of a modified Winchester rifle. Shown at the beginning of every episode in the opening credits, McCain would fire the rifle using the lever rather than pulling the trigger. This library is located Chuck Connors Catalog which can be accessed via the Western Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. The Rifleman library is also available seperately in the Western Shows Catalog. I still have episodes from Seasons 4 and 5 to post in order to complete the library - so more to come!

      Bloodlines
      Tension
      Surveyors
      Case of Identity

      10/11/17 - Today I added the nineteen available episodes to Season 4 of the Babylon 5 library. Set between the years 2257 and 2262, it depicts a future where Earth has sovereign states, and a unifying Earth government. Colonies within the solar system, and beyond, make up the Earth Alliance, and contact has been made with other spacefaring species. The ensemble cast portray alien ambassadorial staff and humans assigned to the 5-mile long Babylon 5 space station, a center for trade and diplomacy. Described as "one of the most complex programs on television", the various story arcs drew upon the prophesies, religious zealotry, racial tensions, social pressures, and political rivalries which existed within each of their cultures, to create a contextual framework for the motivations and consequences of the protagonists' actions. With a strong emphasis on character development set against a backdrop of conflicting ideologies on multiple levels. At the beginning of Season 2, Captain John Sheridan (Bruce Boxleitner) is installed as the new military governor of the station. This library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog. Many of these videos have been inverted - meaning that they are shown as "mirror images" of the originals. I still have most of the Season 5 episodes, plus 6 TV movies based on the series, bookmarked, so more to come!

      10/8/17 - Today I added twelve videos to the Sid Caesar Sketches library. Isaac Sidney "Sid" Caesar (September 8, 1922 – February 12, 2014) was an American comic actor and writer best known for the television series Your Show of Shows (1950-1954) and Caesar's Hour (1954-1958). Full shows of Caesar's programs are very hard, if not impossible, to come by. Fortunately, Caesar's specialty was sketch comedy - and there are abundant videos of his individual sketches. The added sketches are the last 12 in the library. Also, over the past few weeks I have added twenty videos (usually 1 or 2 at a time) to the Honeymooners Sketches library. The Honeymooners sketches originally aired on the DuMont network's variety series Cavalcade of Stars, which Jackie Gleason hosted, and subsequently on the CBS network's The Jackie Gleason Show, which was broadcast live in front of a theater audience. The popularity of the sketches led Gleason to rework The Honeymooners as a filmed half-hour series, which debuted October 1, 1955, on CBS, in place of the variety series. These are original Honeymooners sketches from Cavalcade of Stars and the Jackie Gleason Show. The added sketches are the last 20 in the library. Both libraries are found in the Comedy Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      10/7/17 - Today I added the remaining twenty episodes to Season 3 of the The Real McCoys library. The Real McCoys revolves around the lives of a family from the Appalachian Mountains who originally hailed from fictional Smokey Corners, West Virginia. The McCoys moved to California and became dirt farmers. The family consisted of Grandpa Amos McCoy (Walter Brennan); his grandson Luke (Richard Crenna), Luke's new bride Kate (Kathy Nolan), Luke's teenage sister Tallahassie "Hassie" (Lydia Reed), and his 11-year-old brother Little Luke (Michael Winkelman).

      10/5/17 - Today I added thireteen episodes 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.

Fox) and his ex-hippie parents, Steven and Elyse Keaton (portrayed by Michael Gross and Meredith Baxter). The show won multiple awards, including three consecutive Emmy Awards for Michael J. Fox as Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series.

      9/14/17 - Today I was searching around different catalogs for problems and discovered that my Captain Midnight TV series library had vanished. It was one of the first libraries I created from YouTube videos. I was able to find thirteen episodes on the Internet Archive to partially restore the library. The Captain Midnight (1954-1955) TV series (aka Jet Jackson), produced by Screen Gems and starring Richard Webb, began September 9, 1954, on CBS, continuing for 39 episodes until January 21, 1956. When the TV series went into syndication in 1958, Ovaltine was no longer the sponsor but owned the rights to the character's name "Captain Midnight", forcing a title change from Captain Midnight to Jet Jackson, Flying Commando, and all references in the episodes to Captain Midnight were redubbed "Jet Jackson". This library contains episodes from both versions and is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror and Kid Shows Catalogs.

      9/13/17 - Today I added ten episodes to the This Is Your Life library.

      9/12/17 - Today I added all twenty-six episodes to Season 2 of the Friday the 13th: The Series library with all twenty-six episodes of Season 1 to start. Friday the 13th (1987–1990) was an American-Canadian horror television series that ran for three seasons, from October 3, 1987 to May 26, 1990 in first-run syndication. The series follows Micki and Ryan, owners of an antiques store, and their friend, Jack Marshak, as they try to recover cursed antiques, to put them into safety in the store's vault. Originally, the series was to be titled The 13th Hour, but producer Frank Mancuso, Jr. thought this would turn away viewers and instead took the name Friday the 13th to deliberately draw in audiences. Despite this title, the series has no story connections to the film series of the same name, as Jason Voorhees does not make an appearance, nor does any character connected to the films. In the United Kingdom it was allegedly listed on TV schedules as Friday's Curse though when going to advertisement breaks on ITV it was titled Friday the 13th: The Series. These videos are all auto-play - they start as soon as you reach the page. I have the entire series bookmarked, so 1 more Seasons to come.

The show has attained an iconic status in the United States, with the Cleavers exemplifying the idealized suburban family of the mid-20th century.

Described as "one of the most complex programs on television", the various story arcs drew upon the prophesies, religious zealotry, racial tensions, social pressures, and political rivalries which existed within each of their cultures, to create a contextual framework for the motivations and consequences of the protagonists' actions. With a strong emphasis on character development set against a backdrop of conflicting ideologies on multiple levels. At the beginning of Season 2, Captain John Sheridan (Bruce Boxleitner) is installed as the new military governor of the station. This library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog.

It was set in the 1870s and 1880s in the town of North Fork, New Mexico Territory. It was one of the first prime time series on American television to show a widowed parent raising a child. The program was titled to reflect McCain's use of a modified Winchester rifle. Shown at the beginning of every episode in the opening credits, McCain would fire the rifle using the lever rather than pulling the trigger.

The series was nominated for 12 Emmy Awards and won five. The first season episode "The Amazing Falsworth" earned writer Mick Garris an Edgar Award for Best Episode in a TV Series. It was not a ratings hit (ranking 40th in Season 1 and 52nd in Season 2), however, and the network did not renew it after the two-year contract expired. The 1987 science fiction movie *batteries not included was originally intended to be featured in Amazing Stories, but Steven Spielberg liked the idea so much that he decided to make it a theatrical release. The series title licensed the name of Amazing Stories, the first dedicated science fiction magazine. The new library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror. These are all the episodes I've found of the series thus far, so the library is complete until I find more of them.

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 show spent most of its run on NBC's Thursday night "Must See TV" lineup. Its widely watched series finale was broadcast on May 20, 1993, and the show's 274 episodes have been successfully syndicated worldwide. Nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series for all eleven of its seasons on the air, it earned 28 Primetime Emmy Awards from a record of 117 nominations. The character Frasier Crane (Kelsey Grammer) was featured in his eponymous spin-off show, which aired until 2004 and included guest appearances by virtually all of the major and minor Cheers characters.

      8/21/17 - Today I added nineteen episodes to the Mork & Mindy library. Mork & Mindy was an American sitcom and a spin-off of Happy Days that aired on ABC from September 14, 1978 to May 27, 1982. It stars Robin Williams as Mork, an extraterrestrial who comes to Earth from the planet Ork in a small, one-Orkan egg-shaped spaceship. Pam Dawber co-stars as Mindy McConnell, his human friend, roommate, and eventually, wife, and mother of his child. The character of Mork is played by a then-unknown Robin Williams, who impressed producer Garry Marshall with his quirky comedic ability as soon as they met. When Williams was asked to take a seat at the audition, Williams immediately sat on his head on the chair and Marshall cast him on the spot, and later wryly commented that Williams was the only alien who auditioned for the role. This library is located in the Family Comedy & Drama Shows Catalog.The added episodes are:

The double-naming of the brothers was explained in the first episode by the elder Luke: Because their parents were so excited over the birth of the younger boy, "they forgot all about me!" Only Crenna was in every episode. I still have numerous episodes yet to post so more to come! The restored library is located in the Family Comedy & Drama Shows Catalog. The added episodes are:

      8/19/17 - Today I added the available nineteen episodes to Season 3 of 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. Ths was the 2nd iteration of the Bob Newhart Show. This library can be found in the Comedy Shows Catalog. I have the bulk of the episodes of all 8 seasons pf the series, so many more to come.

      8/18/17 - Today I created a new Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman library with the sixteen available episodes of Season 2 to start (I haven't found any Season 1 episodes so far). Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman (1993-1997) - commonly known simply as Lois and Clark and in the UK as The New Adventures of Superman, was an American television series based on the DC Comics character Superman created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. It stars Dean Cain as Clark Kent/Superman and Teri Hatcher as Lois Lane. The series aired on ABC and was shot entirely in California. I wanted to share how I ended up finding and posting this series. Yesterday I was watching one of my favorite crime drama series' on Netflix, NCIS (Naval Criminal Investigation Service). One of the guest stars looked familiar too me, so I went up to iMDB and looked her up and found out that she was Cindy Scoggins - reading a little further I saw that she was a major character (Kat Grant) in the Lois & Clark series. That spurred me to see if I could find any of thse shows - and I was surprised to find 54 episodes on Daily Motion! The new library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror and Action and Adventure Catalogs. It can also be found in the Superman Catalog, which is also located in the 2 aforementioned catalogs and the Catalog of Stars. I have a bunch of these episodes bookmarked, but my plan is to hold off posting any more of them to see if they will stay up on Daily Motion.

      8/17/17 - Today I added the first eighteen episodes to Season 9 of the Bonanza Library. Bonanza was an NBC television western series that ran from 1959 to 1973. Lasting 14 seasons and 431 episodes, Bonanza is NBC's longest-running western, and ranks overall as the second-longest-running western series on U.S. network television (behind CBS' Gunsmoke), and within the top 10 longest-running, live-action American series. The show continues to air in syndication. The show is set around the 1860s and it centers on the wealthy Cartwright family, who live in the area of Virginia City, Nevada, bordering Lake Tahoe. The series stars Lorne Greene, Dan Blocker, Michael Landon, Pernell Roberts (who left after six seasons), and later David Canary and Mitch Vogel. I still have Seasons 13 and 14 to post - so many more to come. This library is located in the Western Shows and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs. The added episodes are all of them showing currently in Season 9 of the library.

      8/16/17 - Today I gathered seven episodes of the Nat King Cole Show and three Other Nat King Cole TV Appearances and created a Nat King Cole Catalog to house the two new libraries. Nathaniel Adams Coles (March 17, 1919 – February 15, 1965), known professionally as Nat King Cole, was an American singer who first came to prominence as a leading jazz pianist. He was widely noted for his soft baritone voice, performing in big band and jazz genres, and was a major force in popular music for three decades. Cole was one of the first African Americans to host a national television variety show, The Nat King Cole Show. His recordings remained popular worldwide after his death from lung cancer in February 1965. On a personal note - Nat King Cole was a very important influence on my own musical career. The new Catalog can be found in the Musical Shows and Variety Shows Catalogs and also in the Cavalcade of Stars.

      8/15/17 - Today I added/restored twenty episodes to Season 4 of the The Beverly Hillibillies Library. The Beverly Hillbillies was an American sitcom originally broadcast on CBS for nine seasons. The series starred Buddy Ebsen, Irene Ryan, Donna Douglas, and Max Baer, Jr. as a poor backwoods family who moved to Beverly Hills, California, after striking oil on their land. The Beverly Hillbillies ranked among the top 20 most-watched programs on television for eight of its nine seasons, twice ranking as the number one series of the year, with a number of episodes that remain among the most-watched television episodes of all time. I recently discovered a large cache of these episodes so many more to come. This library is locate in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

Set between the years 2257 and 2262, it depicts a future where Earth has sovereign states, and a unifying Earth government. Colonies within the solar system, and beyond, make up the Earth Alliance, and contact has been made with other spacefaring species. The ensemble cast portray alien ambassadorial staff and humans assigned to the 5-mile long Babylon 5 space station, a center for trade and diplomacy. Described as "one of the most complex programs on television", the various story arcs drew upon the prophesies, religious zealotry, racial tensions, social pressures, and political rivalries which existed within each of their cultures, to create a contextual framework for the motivations and consequences of the protagonists' actions. With a strong emphasis on character development set against a backdrop of conflicting ideologies on multiple levels. At the beginning of Season 2, Captain John Sheridan (Bruce Boxleitner) is installed as the new military governor of the station. This library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog. Many of these videos have been inverted - meaning that they are shown as "mirror images" of the originals. I have most of the series episodes, plus 6 TV movies based on the series, bookmarked, so many more to come!

      8/13/17 - Today I added twenty-two episodes to the original UK version of the Whose Line It It, Anyway? library. Whose Line Is It Anyway? (1988-1997) 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, many taken from theatresports. Topics for the games were based on either audience suggestions or predetermined prompts from the host. The UK Host was Clive Anderson.

      8/12/17 - Today I created a new According to Jim library with the first twenty-two available episodes to start. According to Jim (2001–2009) was an American sitcom television series starring Jim Belushi (the younger brother of comic actor John Belushi) in the title role as a suburban father of three children (five children starting with the season-seven finale). Also Stars: Courtney Thorne-Smith and Larry Joe Campbell. Jim is a lovable suburban father. Much like his real-life counterpart, Jim's character is noted as a fan of blues music, as well as the Chicago Bears, Chicago Cubs, Chicago Bulls and the Chicago Blackhawks. Together with his wife Cheryl, they have three children, daughters Ruby and Gracie and son Kyle. In the seventh season they become parents of twins Jonathan and Gordon. The new library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

      8/9/17 - Today I added the last sixteen episodes to the Have Gun Will Travel library. This completes the library until I find more of the missing episodes. Have Gun – Will Travel (1957-1963) was an American Western television series that aired on CBS. It was rated number three or number four in the Nielsen ratings every year of its first four seasons. The series follows the adventures of a man calling himself "Paladin" (played by Richard Boone), taking his name from that of the foremost knight warriors in Charlemagne's court. He is a gentleman gunfighter who travels around the Old West working as a mercenary gunfighter for people who hire him to solve their problems for them. Although Paladin will charge steep fees to clients who can afford to hire him, typically $1000 per job, he will provide his services for free (i.e., pro bono) to poor people who need his help. Like many westerns, the television show was set during a nebulous period after the Civil War. This is my favorite western series. In my opinion, it is the best "thinking man's" adventure series ever produced. I can't recommend it highly enough. The library is located in the Western TV Shows catalog.

      8/8/17 - Today I created a new Jackie Gleason Show library with ten clips of Honeymooners sketches from the program. I hope to find some full episodes eventually. The Honeymooners sketches originally aired on the DuMont network's variety series Cavalcade of Stars, which Gleason hosted, and subsequently on the CBS network's The Jackie Gleason Show, which was broadcast live in front of a theater audience. The popularity of the sketches led Gleason to rework The Honeymooners as a filmed half-hour series, which debuted October 1, 1955, on CBS, in place of the variety series. I then realized that I now have four Jackie Gleason television vehicles so I decided to create a Jackie Gleason Catalog to house the new library, plus the Cavalcade of Stars, The Life of Riley (the original version, starring Gleason) and The Honeymooners Libraries. John Herbert "Jackie" Gleason (February 26, 1916 – June 24, 1987) was an American comedian, actor, musician and writer who developed a style and characters in his career from growing up in Brooklyn, New York. He was known for his brash visual and verbal comedy style, exemplified by his bus driver character Ralph Kramden in the television series The Honeymooners. By filming the episodes with Electronicams, Gleason was later able to release the series in syndication, which increased its popularity over the years with new audiences. He also developed The Jackie Gleason Show, which maintained high ratings from the mid-1950s until its cancellation in 1970. After originating in Hollywood, filming moved to Miami, Florida, in 1964 after Gleason took up permanent residence there. The Honeymooners and The Life of Riley libraries, are also located in the Comedy Show Catalog. The new Jackie Gleason Catalog is also located there and also in the Catalog of Stars.

      8/7/17 - Today I added the fourteen available (from Hulu) episodes of Season 2 to the The Odd Couple library. 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.

      8/6/17 - This has been a very busy weekend for me, musically, so I haven't been able to devote much time to the Classic TV site. I did manage to add six episodes to the Bewitched! library. Bewitched! (1964 - 1972) was an American television sitcom fantasy series, originally broadcast on ABC and starred Elizabeth Montgomery, Dick York, Agnes Moorehead, and David White. The show is about a witch who marries an ordinary mortal man, and vows to lead the life of a typical suburban housewife. Bewitched was the longest-running supernatural-themed sitcom of the 1960s–1970s. In 2002, Bewitched was ranked #50 on "TV Guide's 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time". These episodes are proving to be very hard to come by, so hopefully, I will find more. The new library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas and the Whacky Dames Catalogs. The added episodes are:

      Wedding Present
      South for a Spell
      On the Keyboard
      Gone! and Forgotten?
      Spouse Around the House
      Mirror, Mirror

      8/4/17 - Tonight I decided to tie up a couple of loose ends by adding Trouble from Mars, Keep off the Grass, The School Play, Mr. Wilson's Inheritance and Dennis Is a Genius to the Dennis the Menace library. Dennis the Menace was an American sitcom based on the Hank Ketcham comic strip of the same name and preceded The Ed Sullivan Show on Sunday evenings on CBS from October 1959 to July 1963. The series stars Jay North as Dennis Mitchell; Herbert Anderson as his father, Henry; Gloria Henry as his mother, Alice; Joseph Kearns as George Wilson, Gale Gordon as George's brother, John Wilson, Sylvia Field as George's wife, Martha Wilson, and Sara Seegar as John's wife, Eloise Wilson. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. I then turned to another family comedy show and added Venetian Melody and Pupa From Italy to the Make Room for Daddy library. The Danny Thomas Show (known as Make Room for Daddy during the first three seasons) was an American sitcom which ran from 1953 to 1957 on ABC and from 1957 to 1964 on CBS. A revival series known as Make Room for Granddaddy aired on ABC from 1970 to 1971.

This library is located in the Danny Thomas Catalog which can be accessed via the Comedy Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      8/3/17 - Today I added thirteen episodes to the Ozzie & Harriet library.

After a long run on radio, the show was brought to television, where it continued its success, initially running simultaneously on radio and television.

      8/2/17 - Today I added thirty-five episodes to Season 4 of the Leave It to Beaver library. Leave It to Beaver was an American television situation comedy about an inquisitive and often naïve boy, Theodore "The Beaver" Cleaver (portrayed by Jerry Mathers), and his adventures at home, in school, and around his suburban neighborhood. The show also starred Barbara Billingsley and Hugh Beaumont as Beaver's parents, June and Ward Cleaver, and Tony Dow as Beaver's brother Wally. The show has attained an iconic status in the United States, with the Cleavers exemplifying the idealized suburban family of the mid-20th century. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added episodes are the last 5 on the first library page, and all of them on the second page.

The force of the blast propels the Moon like an enormous booster rocket, hurling it out of Earth orbit and into deep space at colossal speed, thus stranding the 311 personnel stationed on Moonbase Alpha. Starring Martin Landau and Barbara Bain (both of whom previously starred in Mission Impossible), and Nick Tate. This library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog.

      7/28/17 - Today I added all seventeen episodes of Season 3 to the 12 O'Clock High library, which completes the library with all 78 episodes of the series. 12 O'Clock High (1964-1967) was an American drama series set in World War II. This TV series was originally broadcast on ABC-TV and was based on the motion picture Twelve O'Clock High (1949). The series was a co-production of 20th Century Fox Television (Fox had also produced the movie) and QM Productions (one of their few non-law enforcement series). The series follows the missions of the fictitious 918th Bombardment Group (Heavy) of the U.S. Army Air Forces (USAAF), equipped with B-17 Flying Fortress heavy bombers, stationed at Archbury Field, England (a fictitious air base). For the first season, many of the characters from the book and 1949 movie were retained, including Brigadier General Frank Savage, Major Harvey Stovall, Major Cobb, Doc Kaiser, and General Pritchard, albeit played by different actors from in the motion picture. In addition to these characters, several other infrequently reappearing characters were introduced, including Captain (later Major) Joseph "Joe" Gallagher, who appeared in two episodes (episodes 1 and 24). At the end of the first season, the studio executives decided a younger-looking lead actor was needed. In the first episode of the second season, General Savage, played by Robert Lansing, was killed in action and replaced by Colonel Joe Gallagher, played by Paul Burke. (Burke, though considered more youthful-looking than Lansing, was actually two years older, a fact that TV critics were quick to point out.) The decision proved unpopular and the ratings began to drop. This library is located in the Action and Adventure Catalogs. Season 3 was the only one that was shot in color.

      7/27/17 - Today I the last sixteen available episodes (from Hulu) to Season 5 of the Taxi Library which completes the library until (or if) I find any of the missing episodes.

      From an Enchantress Fleeing

      7/24/17 - Today I created a new Drew Carey Show library with the available nineteen episodes of Season 1 to start. The Drew Carey Show (1995–2004) was an American sitcom that aired on ABC from 1995 to 2004, and was set in Cleveland, Ohio, and revolved around the retail office and home life of "everyman" Drew Carey, a fictionalized version of the actor. Since this is the 2nd Drew Carey television vehicle on the site, I decided to create a Drew Carey Catalog to house this series and the US version of the Whose Line It It, Anyway? library. The new Catalog is located in the Catalog of Stars. I have the bulk of the series bookmarked, so many more to come.

      7/23/17 - Today I added the available (from Hulu) fifteen episodes to Season 3 of the Night Gallery library, thus completing the library with 43 of the 50 episodes that make up the complete series. Night Gallery (1969-1973) was an American anthology series that aired on NBC, featuring stories of horror and the macabre. Rod Serling, who had gained fame from an earlier series, The Twilight Zone, served both as the on-air host of Night Gallery and as a major contributor of scripts, although he did not have the same control of content and tone as he had on The Twilight Zone. This series generally focused more on horror and suspense than The Twilight Zone did. The series is available in the Rod Serling Catalog, which can be found in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. Night Gallery and The Twilight Zone are also located separately in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog.

      7/22/17 - Today I added fourteen episodes to the The Real McCoys library. The Real McCoys revolves around the lives of a family from the Appalachian Mountains who originally hailed from fictional Smokey Corners, West Virginia. The McCoys moved to California and became dirt farmers. The family consisted of Grandpa Amos McCoy (Walter Brennan); his grandson Luke (Richard Crenna), Luke's new bride Kate (Kathy Nolan), Luke's teenage sister Tallahassie "Hassie" (Lydia Reed), and his 11-year-old brother Little Luke (Michael Winkelman). The double-naming of the brothers was explained in the first episode by the elder Luke: Because their parents were so excited over the birth of the younger boy, "they forgot all about me!" Only Crenna was in every episode. I still have numerous episodes yet to post so more to come! The restored library is located in the Family Comedy & Drama Shows Catalog. The added episodes are:
      An Honest Man
      The Fishing Contest
      Little Luke's Education
      My Favorite Uncle
      Grandpa's Birthday
      Three Is A Crowd

      Leave it to The Girls
      The Gift
      The New Hired Hand
      The New Neighbors

      7/21/17 - Today I added nineteen episodes to the Have Gun Will Travel library. Have Gun – Will Travel (1957-1963) was an American Western television series that aired on CBS. It was rated number three or number four in the Nielsen ratings every year of its first four seasons. The series follows the adventures of a man calling himself "Paladin" (played by Richard Boone), taking his name from that of the foremost knight warriors in Charlemagne's court. He is a gentleman gunfighter who travels around the Old West working as a mercenary gunfighter for people who hire him to solve their problems for them. Although Paladin will charge steep fees to clients who can afford to hire him, typically $1000 per job, he will provide his services for free (i.e., pro bono) to poor people who need his help. Like many westerns, the television show was set during a nebulous period after the Civil War. This is my favorite western series. In my opinion, it is the best "thinking man's" adventure series ever produced. I can't recommend it highly enough. The library is located in the Western TV Shows catalog. The added episodes are all of the Season 6 episodes on the last page of the library plus the ones listed below:

      The Englishman
      Birds of a Feather
      The Silver Queen
      Lady on the Stagecoach

      7/20/17 - Today I created a new Lawrence Welk Show library with twenty episodes to start. The Lawrence Welk Show (1951-1971) was an American televised musical variety show hosted by big band leader Lawrence Welk. The series aired locally in Los Angeles for four years, from 1951 to 1955, then nationally for another 27 years on ABC from 1955 to 1971. Although primarily thought of as a "Polka Band", in fact, The Lawrence Welk Orchestra was quite adept at covering all of the "Big Band" repertoires. The Lennon Sisters were just one of many musical acts who gained fame by appearing on the show. The new library is located in the Musical Shows and Variety Shows Catalogs.

      7/19/17 - Today I added seventeen episodes to 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

      7/18/17 - Today I added all twenty-two episodes to Season 2 of the Miami Vice library. 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". People magazine stated that Miami Vice was the "first show to look really new and different since color TV was invented" This library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

      7/17/17 - Today I added the last sixteen available episodes of Season 4 to the 77 Sunset Strip Library. This completes the library until find more of the missing episodes. 77 Sunset Strip was an American television private detective series created by Roy Huggins and starring Efrem Zimbalist, Jr., Roger Smith and Edd Byrnes. The series revolves around two Los Angeles private detectives, both former government secret agents: Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. played Stuart ("Stu") Bailey, a character Huggins had originated in his 1946 novel The Double Take (which he later adapted into the 1948 movie I Love Trouble, starring Franchot Tone in the role). Roger Smith played Jeff Spencer, also a former government agent, and a nonpracticing attorney. The duo worked out of a stylish office at 77 Sunset Boulevard (colloquially known as "Sunset Strip"), between La Cienega Boulevard and Alta Loma Road on the south side of the Strip next door to Dean Martin's real-life lounge, Dino's Lodge. This library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog. The added episodes are all of them on the 6th library page.

      7/16/17 - Today I created a new US Version of the Whose Line It It, Anyway? library with fifty-one episodes to start. This includes all of the Season 1 and Season 2 episodes. Whose Line Is It Anyway? (1998-2002) is 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. Topics for the games were based on either audience suggestions or predetermined prompts from the host. These shows are from the Original US edition of the program courtesy of CW Seed and are autoplay if you are using a Internet Explorer browser. The host of this version is Drew Cary. This library is found in the Comedy Shows Catalog.

Rod Serling, who had gained fame from an earlier series, The Twilight Zone, served both as the on-air host of Night Gallery and as a major contributor of scripts, although he did not have the same control of content and tone as he had on The Twilight Zone. This series generally focused more on horror and suspense than The Twilight Zone did. The series is available in the Rod Serling Catalog, which can be found in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. Night Gallery and The Twilight Zone are also located separately in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog. The entire series is available from Hulu, so one more Season come.

      7/13/17 - Today I added the last ten available episodes to Season 7 of the Bonanza Library. Bonanza was an NBC television western series that ran from 1959 to 1973. Lasting 14 seasons and 431 episodes, Bonanza is NBC's longest-running western, and ranks overall as the second-longest-running western series on U.S. network television (behind CBS' Gunsmoke), and within the top 10 longest-running, live-action American series.

The series takes place at the Shady Rest Hotel, which is run by Kate Bradley, her Uncle Joe Carson, and her three daughters Billie Jo, Bobbie Jo, and Betty Jo Bradley. The series is one of three interrelated shows about rural characters created by Paul Henning. Petticoat Junction was created upon the success of Henning's previous rural/urban-themed sitcom The Beverly Hillbillies (1962–1971).

      7/8/17 - Today I created a new The Odd Couple library with the nineteen available episodes (from Hulu) to start. 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. I realized, after I posted the Lavern & Shirley library yesterday, that it was also a Garry Marshall production and that I already had two other Garry Marshall shows (Happy Days and Mork & Mindy), so I decided it was time to create a Garry Marshall Catalog to house all four of the series'. Garry Kent Marshall (November 13, 1934 – July 19, 2016) was an American actor, director, producer, writer, and voice artist best known for creating Happy Days and its various spin-offs, developing Neil Simon's 1965 play The Odd Couple for television, and directing Pretty Woman, Runaway Bride, Valentine's Day, New Year's Eve, Mother's Day, The Princess Diaries, and The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement. In 1961, he moved to Hollywood, where he teamed up with Jerry Belson as a writer for television. The pair worked on The Dick Van Dyke Show, The Joey Bishop Show, The Danny Thomas Show, and The Lucy Show. Their first television series as creator-producers was Hey, Landlord, which lasted one season (1966–67). Then they adapted Neil Simon's play The Odd Couple for television. On his own, Marshall created Happy Days, Laverne and Shirley (starring his sister Penny), and Mork & Mindy. The Garry Marshall Catalog is available via the Catalog of Stars and the Comedy Show Catalog, where The Odd Couple library also resides.

      7/7/17 - Today I created a new Lavern & Shirley library with sixteen episodes to start. Lavern & Shirley (1976–1983) was an American sitcom that ran on ABC. It was a spin-off from the Happy Days series and starred Penny Marshall as Laverne DeFazio and Cindy Williams as Shirley Feeney, single roommates who work as bottlecappers in a fictitious Milwaukee brewery called Shotz Brewery. Among others, the series was known for Marshall and Williams' physical comedy. The new library can be found in the Whacky Dames Catalog, which is accessed via the Comedy Shows Catalog. Please Note: The first 6 episodes of Season 2 are autoplay videos which are not viewable on an Internet Archive browser. Please follow the directions above the UECTV logo at the top right of the player page to watch these episodes on the Lavern & Shirley Playlist page.

      7/6/17 - Today I added ten episodes to the The 3 Stooges Theatrical Shorts library. The original trio, comprised Moe Howard, Larry Fine and Shemp Howard, did one feature film (Soup to Nuts) after which Shemp left the group to pursue a solo career, and was replaced by his brother Curly Howard. This incarnation of the team was the first to be known on film as The Three Stooges. Shemp rejoined the group after Curly suffered a stroke in May 1946, reinstating the original line-up until November 1955, when Shemp died of a heart attack. Film actor Joe Palma appeared as a doubling Shemp in four Shemp-era shorts, followed by Joe Besser as a long-term replacement. Ultimately, Joe DeRita (nicknamed "Curly Joe") replaced Joe Besser by 1958. This library is located in The 3 Stooges Catalog which can be accessed via the Comedy Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      7/5/17 - Today I added the last eight episodes to the Stagecoach West library, which completes the series with all of the episodes intact. Stagecoach West (1960-1961) was an American Western drama television series which ran for thirty-eight episodes on the ABC network. Characters Luke Perry (played by Wayne Rogers) and Simon Kane (Robert Bray) operate the Timberland Stage Line from fictitious Outpost, Missouri to San Francisco, California. Simon's 15-year-old son, David "Davey" Kane (played by Richard Eyer), joins the two as they face stagecoach robbers, murderers, inclement weather, and human interest stories. The new library is located in the Western Shows Catalog. The added episodes are the last 8 in the library.

      7/4/17 - Late last night I restored my Carol Burnett Show library with six episodes for now. The original library also had 6 episodes, but five of these are new to the library. Born in San Antonio, Texas, Burnett moved with her grandmother to Hollywood, where she attended Hollywood High School and eventually studied theater and musical comedy at UCLA. Later she performed in nightclubs in New York City and had a breakout success on Broadway in 1959 in Once Upon a Mattress, for which she received a Tony Award nomination. She soon made her television debut, regularly appearing on The Garry Moore Show for the next three years, and won her first Emmy Award in 1962. With its vaudeville roots, The Carol Burnett Show was a variety show that combined comedy sketches with song and dance. The comedy sketches included film parodies and character pieces. Burnett created many memorable characters during the show's run, and both she and the show won numerous Emmy and Golden Globe Awards. The restored library is located in the Carol Burnett Catalog which can be accessed via the Whacky Dames Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      This afternoon I decided to complete the Dad's Army library by adding the seventeen available remaining episodes of the original series. Dad's Army (1968-1977) was a television sitcom about the British Home Guard during the Second World War. It was written by Jimmy Perry and David Croft and broadcast on the BBC. The show is set in the fictional seaside town of Walmington-on-Sea, on the south coast of England. The local Home Guard platoon would be on the front line in the event of an invasion across the English Channel. Stars: Arthur Lowe, John Le Mesurier, Clive Dunn. This library is located in the Comedy Shows Catalog. The added episodes are all of them on he 3rd library page.

      7/3/17 - Today I did a little work in the Family Comedy & Drama Shows Catalog. First I added the remaining ten epiodes too the Father Knows Best library. Father Knows Best was an American sitcom starring Robert Young, Jane Wyatt, Elinor Donahue, Billy Gray, and Lauren Chapin. The series, which first began on radio in 1949, aired for six seasons with a total of 203 episodes. The series debuted on CBS in October 1954. It ran for one season and was canceled the following year. NBC picked up the series where it remained for three seasons. After a second cancellation in 1958, CBS picked up the series yet again where it aired until May 1960. The popular radio show came to life in this hit sitcom about a wise family man, Jim Anderson, played by Robert Young, his common-sense wife Margaret and their children Betty, Bud and Kathy. Whenever the kids need advice on anything at all, they can always turn to their father, because father knows best. I have all but one of the Season 6 episodes bookmarked, so more to come. The added episodes are all the ones on the 8th page of the library.

      While I was in that catalog, I decided to add the six episodes I had bookmarked to the 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 stars Ozzie Nelson and his wife, singer Harriet Nelson (née Snyder, professionally), and their young sons, David and Eric "Ricky" Nelson. The added episodes, which are spread out throughout several Seasons, are:

      Parental Guidance
      Matter of Principle
      The Runaways
      Rick's Scientific Date
      Wally's Pen Pal
      David Picks a Pie

      7/2/17 - Today, at the suggestion of a regular email correspondent, I created a new Inspector Morse Library with seventeen episodes to start. Detective Chief Inspector Endeavour Morse GM is the eponymous fictional character in the series of detective novels by British author Colin Dexter. On television, he appeared in the 33-episode 1987–2000 drama series Inspector Morse, in which John Thaw played the character. Morse originally was described as a senior CID (Criminal Investigation Department) officer with the Thames Valley Police force in Oxford, England. Morse presents, to some, a reasonably sympathetic persona, despite his sullen and snobbish temperament, with a Jaguar car (a Lancia in the early novels), a thirst for English real ale, and a penchant for music (especially opera and Wagner), poetry, art, classics, classic cars, and cryptic crossword puzzles. He is often assisted by his Sergeant Robert "Robbie" Lewis. Morse's partnership and friendship with Lewis is a fundamental aspect of the series. The new library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

      6/30/2017 - Today I created a new Space 1999 Library with all twenty-four episodes of Season 1 to start. Space 1999 was a British science-fiction television series that ran for two seasons. The premise of Space 1999 centers on the plight of the inhabitants of Moonbase Alpha, a scientific research center on the Moon. Humanity had been storing its nuclear waste in vast disposal sites on the far side of the Moon, but when an unknown form of electromagnetic radiation is detected, the accumulated waste reaches critical mass and causes a massive thermonuclear explosion on September 13, 1999. The force of the blast propels the Moon like an enormous booster rocket, hurling it out of Earth orbit and into deep space at colossal speed, thus stranding the 311 personnel stationed on Moonbase Alpha. Starring Martin Landau and Barbara Bain (both of whom previously starred in Mission Impossible), and Nick Tate. I have the entire series (48 episodes) bookmarked, so more to come. The new library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog.

      6/29/17 - Today I added twenty-three episodes to Season 1 of the Route 66 Library. Route 66 followed two young men traversing the United States in a Chevrolet Corvette convertible, and the events and consequences surrounding their journeys. Martin Milner starred as Tod Stiles, a recent college graduate with no future prospects due to circumstances beyond his control. He was originally joined on his travels by Buz Murdock, a friend and former employee of his father (played by George Maharis), with the character leaving midway through the third season after contracting echovirus. Near the end of the third season Tod met a recently discharged Vietnam veteran named Lincoln Case, played by Glenn Corbett, who decided to follow Tod on his travels and stayed with him until the final episode. I recently discovered that Hulu has most of the Season 1, 2 and 3 episodes of the series - so many more to come. This library is located in the Action and Adventure and Television Drama Catalogs. The added episodes are:

      6/28/17 - Late last night I restored all but three episodes of my The Real McCoys library. The Real McCoys revolves around the lives of a family from the Appalachian Mountains who originally hailed from fictional Smokey Corners, West Virginia. The McCoys moved to California and became dirt farmers. The family consisted of Grandpa Amos McCoy (Walter Brennan); his grandson Luke (Richard Crenna), Luke's new bride Kate (Kathy Nolan), Luke's teenage sister Tallahassie "Hassie" (Lydia Reed), and his 11-year-old brother Little Luke (Michael Winkelman). The double-naming of the brothers was explained in the first episode by the elder Luke: Because their parents were so excited over the birth of the younger boy, "they forgot all about me!" Only Crenna was in every episode. I originally created this library in September of 2013 from YouTube videos. It lasted maybe a couple of months and then vanished. Yesterday I stumbled across 6 episodes on the Internet Archive. I decided to search for the series on Daily Motion and hit the jackpot. I now have numerous episodes yet to post and will be working on the prep work today so that I can start expanding the library in the coming weeks. The restored library is located in the Family Comedy & Drama Shows Catalog.

      6/27/17 - Today I restored all thirty-eight episodes of Season 5 to the Have Gun Will Travel library. This is the third or fourth time I have restored this library, so hope for the best. Have Gun – Will Travel (1957-1963) was an American Western television series that aired on CBS. It was rated number three or number four in the Nielsen ratings every year of its first four seasons. The series follows the adventures of a man calling himself "Paladin" (played by Richard Boone), taking his name from that of the foremost knight warriors in Charlemagne's court. He is a gentleman gunfighter who travels around the Old West working as a mercenary gunfighter for people who hire him to solve their problems for them. Although Paladin will charge steep fees to clients who can afford to hire him, typically $1000 per job, he will provide his services for free (i.e., pro bono) to poor people who need his help. Like many westerns, the television show was set during a nebulous period after the Civil War. This is my favorite western series. In my opinion, it is the best "thinking man's" adventure series ever produced. I can't recommend it highly enough. The library is located in the Western TV Shows catalog.

      6/26/17 - Today I created a new UFO library with all twenty-six episodes of Season 1. UFO (1970-1971) was a British television science fiction series about an alien invasion of Earth. Earth is being visited and attacked by aliens from a dying planet and humans are being covertly harvested for their organs by the aliens. The show's main cast of characters are members of a secret, high-technology international agency called SHADO (an acronym for Supreme Headquarters, Alien Defence Organisation) established to defend Earth and humanity against the mysterious aliens and learn more about them, while at the same time keeping the threat of an alien invasion hidden from the public. Satars: Stars: Ed Bishop, Dolores Mantez, Michael Billington. I have to admit that I had never heard of this series before I ran across it on the Internet Archive. At this point I have all but 2 of the series episodes. The new library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog.

      6/25/17 - Today I added twenty episodes to Season 4 of The Rifleman library. The Rifleman (1958-1963) was an American Western television program starring Chuck Connors as rancher Lucas McCain and Johnny Crawford as his son, Mark McCain. It was set in the 1870s and 1880s in the town of North Fork, New Mexico Territory. It was one of the first prime time series on American television to show a widowed parent raising a child. The program was titled to reflect McCain's use of a modified Winchester rifle. Shown at the beginning of every episode in the opening credits, McCain would fire the rifle using the lever rather than pulling the trigger. This library is located Chuck Connors Catalog which can be accessed via the Western Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

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. Ths was the 2nd iteration of the Bob Newhart Show. Since I also have the original series, I have created a Bob Newhart Catalog to house both series'. The new catalog is located in the Catalog of Stars. Both series can also be found in the Comedy Shows Catalog.

      6/21/17 - Today I added The Yuletide Doll, Bad Guys and Good Girls and The Instanst Marriage Mill to the Red Skelton Show library. I then realized that I had a couple of other libraries in the Comedy Show Catalogs that also had just a few episodes available to add. I had been holding off on them becauae there were so few of them to work with - so I added The Party, The Hunter and The Buckingham to the Ozzie & Harriet library. And finally, I added four episodes to the Colgate Comedy Hour library, including: With Abbot & Costello (1953), With Abbot & Costello II (1953), With Abbot & Costello III (1953) and With Abbott & Costello (1954). The Red Skelton Show and The Colgate Comedy Hour are located in the Comedy Shows Catalog. The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet library is located in the Family Comedy & Drama Shows Catalog.

      6/20/17 - Today I added the twenty-two episodes to Season 2 of the The Outer Limits: The New Series library. The Outer Limits was an American television series that aired on ABC from 1963 to 1965 at 7:30 PM Eastern Time on Mondays. The series is often compared to The Twilight Zone, but with a greater emphasis on science fiction stories (rather than stories just dealing with fantasy or supernatural matters). The Outer Limits was an anthology of self-contained episodes, sometimes with a plot twist at the end. This library is from the series revival in 1995, airing on Showtime from 1995 to 2000, then on Sci-Fi Channel from 2001 until its cancellation in 2002. The new library os accessed via the new Outer Limits Catalog, which is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog. I have the entire series bookmarked (7 seasons!) so many more to come. These are all auto-play videos which cannot be played individually using an Internet Explorer browser. To view the episodes individually in IE, go to the The Outer Limits Playlists library.

      6/19/17 - Today I added twenty-three episodes to the Thriller library, which completes the library until I find the missing episodes. 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 all of them on the last 2 library pages.

      6/17/17 - Today I added all twenty-two episodes of Season 2 to the Family Ties library with the twenty-one available episodes of Season 1 to start. Family Ties (1982-1989) was an American sitcom that aired on NBC. The series reflected the move in the United States from the cultural liberalism of the 1960s and 1970s to the conservatism of the 1980s. This was particularly expressed through the relationship between young Republican Alex P. Keaton (portrayed by Michael J. Fox) and his ex-hippie parents, Steven and Elyse Keaton (portrayed by Michael Gross and Meredith Baxter). The show won multiple awards, including three consecutive Emmy Awards for Michael J. Fox as Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series. Set in suburban Columbus, Ohio, during the Reagan administration, Steven and Elyse Keaton are baby boomers, liberals and former hippies, raising their three children: ambitious, would-be millionaire entrepreneur Alex; fashion-conscious, gossipy Mallory (Justine Bateman); and tomboy Jennifer (Tina Yothers). Married in 1964, Elyse is an independent architect and Steven, a native of Buffalo, New York, is the station manager of WKS, a local public television station. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas catalog. I have most of the episodes for the first 3 Seasons bookmarked - so more to come!

      6/16/17 - Today I created a new Miami Vice library with the twenty-one available episodes of Season 1 to start. 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". People magazine stated that Miami Vice was the "first show to look really new and different since color TV was invented" The new library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

      6/15/17 - Today I created a new Night Gallery library with twelve episodes to start. Night Gallery (1969-1973) was an American anthology series that aired on NBC, featuring stories of horror and the macabre. Rod Serling, who had gained fame from an earlier series, The Twilight Zone, served both as the on-air host of Night Gallery and as a major contributor of scripts, although he did not have the same control of content and tone as he had on The Twilight Zone. Since this is the second Rod Serling produced series on the site, it necessitated the creation of a Rod Serling Catalog to house this series and The Twilight Zone library. Rodman Edward "Rod" Serling (December 25, 1924 – June 28, 1975) was an American screenwriter, playwright, television producer, and narrator known for his live television dramas of the 1950s and his science-fiction anthology TV series, The Twilight Zone. Serling was active in politics, both on and off the screen, and helped form television industry standards. He was known as the "angry young man" of Hollywood, clashing with television executives and sponsors over a wide range of issues including censorship, racism, and war. In 1969, NBC aired a television film pilot for a new series, Night Gallery, written by Serling. Set in a dimly lit museum after hours, the pilot film featured Serling (as on-camera host) playing the curator, who introduced three tales of the macabre, unveiling canvases that would appear in the subsequent story segments. Its brief first season (consisting of only six episodes) was rotated with three other shows (called Four in One) airing in the same time slot. The series generally focused more on horror and suspense than The Twilight Zone did. The Rod Serling Catalog is available in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. Night Gallery and The Twilight Zone are also located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog. The entire series is available from Hulu, so many more to come.

      6/14/17 - Today I added the fifteen available episodes of Season 5 of The Waltons library. I have most of the first 8 Seasons bookmarked so many more to come. The Waltons (1971–1981) is about the family of John Walton Jr. (known as John-Boy): his six siblings, his parents John and Olivia Walton, and the elder John's parents Zebulon "Zeb" and Esther Walton. John-Boy is the oldest of the children, who becomes a journalist and novelist. Created by Earl Hamner, Jr., based on his book Spencer's Mountain, and a 1963 film of the same name, the show is centered on a family in a rural Virginia community during the Great Depression and World War II. Each episode is narrated at the opening and closing by a middle-aged John-Boy (voiced by author Earl Hamner on whom John-Boy is based). John Sr. manages to eke out a living for his family by operating a lumber mill with his sons' help as they grow older. The family income is augmented by some small-scale farming, and John occasionally hunts to put meat on the table. Stars: Richard Thomas, Ralph Waite, Michael Learned, Ellen Corby and Will Geer. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

      6/13/17 - Today I added twenty episodes to the 77 Sunset Strip Library. 77 Sunset Strip was an American television private detective series created by Roy Huggins and starring Efrem Zimbalist, Jr., Roger Smith and Edd Byrnes. The series revolves around two Los Angeles private detectives, both former government secret agents: Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. played Stuart ("Stu") Bailey, a character Huggins had originated in his 1946 novel The Double Take (which he later adapted into the 1948 movie I Love Trouble, starring Franchot Tone in the role). Roger Smith played Jeff Spencer, also a former government agent, and a nonpracticing attorney. The duo worked out of a stylish office at 77 Sunset Boulevard (colloquially known as "Sunset Strip"), between La Cienega Boulevard and Alta Loma Road on the south side of the Strip next door to Dean Martin's real-life lounge, Dino's Lodge. This library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog. The added episodes are all of them on the 5th library page.

      6/12/17 - Today I added the first twenty available episodes to Season 7 of the Bonanza Library. Bonanza was an NBC television western series that ran from 1959 to 1973. Lasting 14 seasons and 431 episodes, Bonanza is NBC's longest-running western, and ranks overall as the second-longest-running western series on U.S. network television (behind CBS' Gunsmoke), and within the top 10 longest-running, live-action American series. The show continues to air in syndication. The show is set around the 1860s and it centers on the wealthy Cartwright family, who live in the area of Virginia City, Nevada, bordering Lake Tahoe. The series stars Lorne Greene, Dan Blocker, Michael Landon, Pernell Roberts (who left after six seasons), and later David Canary and Mitch Vogel. I still have 10 Season 7 episodes plus Seasons 9, 13 and 14 to post - so many more to come. This library is located in the Western Shows and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs.

      6/11/17 - Upon hearing of the passing of Adam West yesterday, I decided to do a random search of the Internet Archive using the keyword "Batman" and was very surprised to find two copies of the Batman the Movie (1966), which was the very first live-action Batman feature film, starring Adam West and Burt Ward. This prompted me to create a Batman Catalog including the film, and a Batman Theatrical Serial from 1943, which was the only Batman content I had on the site previously. This morning I remembered that I had bookmarked some episodes of Batman: The Animated Series (1992 - 1995) a while back, so I ceated a new library with seventeen episodes to start. Batman is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. The character first appeared in Detective Comics #27 (1939). Originally named the "Bat-Man", the character is also referred to by such epithets as the Caped Crusader, the Dark Knight, and the World's Greatest Detective. Batman's secret identity is Bruce Wayne, a wealthy American playboy, philanthropist, and owner of Wayne Enterprises. After witnessing the murder of his parents Dr. Thomas Wayne and Martha Wayne as a child, he swore vengeance against criminals, an oath tempered by a sense of justice. Bruce Wayne trains himself physically and intellectually and crafts a bat-inspired persona to fight crime. Batman operates in the fictional Gotham City with assistance from various supporting characters, including his butler Alfred, police commissioner Gordon, and vigilante allies such as Robin. Unlike most superheroes, Batman does not possess any superpowers; rather, he relies on his genius intellect, physical prowess, martial arts abilities, detective skills, science and technology, vast wealth, intimidation, and indomitable will. A large assortment of villains make up Batman's rogues gallery, including his archenemy, the Joker. The Batman Catalog is located in the Action and Adventure, the Feature Films Catalogs and in the Catalog of Stars. The Batman Serial can also be found in the Theatrical Serials Catalog, while the Animated Series is available in the Cartoon Catalog. The Theatrical Serials and Cartoons Catalogs are both located in the Cartoons, Short Format Films and Unsold Pilots Catalog.

      6/10/17 - Today I restored my Are You Being Served? Library. Are You Being Served? (originally styled as "Are You Being Served?" in quotation marks) is a British sitcom aired on the BBC. Set in London, the show follows the misadventures and mishaps of the staff of the retail ladies' and gentlemen's clothing departments, in the flagship department store of a fictional chain called Grace Brothers. I woke up this morning to an email from a viewer letting me know that the library had vanished. The original library was all from YouTube and was fininshed back on August of 2015. I decided to go look for it on Daily Motion, where I frequently find replacements for missing YouTube videos, and was very pleased to find the entire series! So it is back! Located in the Are You Being Served? Catalog, which can be found via the Comedy Shows Catalog and the Whacky Dames Catalogs.

      6/9/17 - Today I added all twenty-six episodes to Season 6 of the Green Acres library. In Green Acres, a New York attorney and his wife try to live as genteel farmers in the bizarre community of Hooterville. Stars: Eddie Albert, Eva Gabor and Tom Lester. The success of Paul Henning's series Petticoat Junction (itself a spin-off of his hit series, The Beverly Hillbillies) led to another spin-off, Green Acres. This library is located in the Paul Henning, Family Comedies and Dramas, Comedy Shows and the Whacky Dames Catalogs. This completes the library until I find some of he missing episodes from Seasons 4 and 5.

      6/8/17 - Today I added fifteen episodes to the Stagecoach West library. Stagecoach West (1960-1961) was an American Western drama television series which ran for thirty-eight episodes on the ABC network. Characters Luke Perry (played by Wayne Rogers) and Simon Kane (Robert Bray) operate the Timberland Stage Line from fictitious Outpost, Missouri to San Francisco, California. Simon's 15-year-old son, David "Davey" Kane (played by Richard Eyer), joins the two as they face stagecoach robbers, murderers, inclement weather, and human interest stories. The new library is located in the Western Shows Catalog. The added episodes are:
      Three Wise Men
      By the Deep Six
      Finn McColl
      Image of a Man
      Not in Our Stars

      The Butcher
      Fort Wyatt Crossing
      A Place of Still Waters
      Never Walk Alone
      The Big Gun
      The Dead Don't Cry

      6/7/17 - Today I added eighteen episodes to Seasons 4 and 5 of The Rifleman library. The Rifleman (1958-1963) was an American Western television program starring Chuck Connors as rancher Lucas McCain and Johnny Crawford as his son, Mark McCain. It was set in the 1870s and 1880s in the town of North Fork, New Mexico Territory. It was one of the first prime time series on American television to show a widowed parent raising a child. The program was titled to reflect McCain's use of a modified Winchester rifle. Shown at the beginning of every episode in the opening credits, McCain would fire the rifle using the lever rather than pulling the trigger. I thought when I started this addition that I would be finishing the library today, however, I discovered that since the last time I looked, Hulu has added a substantial number of episodes to these 2 Seasons since the last time I looked. So I have more then 40 episodes left to post. This library is located Chuck Connors Catalog which can be accessed via the Western Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. The Rifleman library is also available seperately in the Western Shows Catalog. The added episodes are all of them so far from Seasons 4 and 5.

      6/6/17 - Today I added the ten available episodes of Season 8 to the Rawhide library. Rawhide was an American Western TV series starring Eric Fleming and Clint Eastwood that aired for eight seasons on the CBS network on Friday nights, from January 9, 1959 to September 3, 1965, before moving to Tuesday nights from September 14, 1965 until January 4, 1966, with a total of 217 black-and-white episodes. The series was produced and sometimes directed by Charles Marquis Warren, who also produced early episodes of Gunsmoke. This was Eastwood's stepping stone to fame and fortune as he became one of the few TV stars to successfully make the move into starring roles in movies. This library is located in the Western Shows Catalog. I am still looking for episodes to fill in the gaps.

      6/5/17 - Today I added the last fourteen episodes to Seasons 5 and 6 of the Hogan's Heroes library (thanks again to Daily Motion). Hogan's Heroes (1965-1971) was an American television sitcom set in a German prisoner of war (POW) camp during World War II. It ran on the CBS network. Bob Crane starred as Colonel Robert E. Hogan, co-ordinating an international crew of Allied prisoners running a Special Operations group from the camp. Werner Klemperer played Colonel Wilhelm Klink, the incompetent commandant of the camp, and John Banner was the inept sergeant-of-the-guard, Hans Schultz. This library is now complete (until I find some of the missing episodes) and is located in the Action and Adventure and the Comedy Shows Catalogs. The added episodes are:
      The Gasoline War
      Bombsight
      The Big Picture
      The Antique
      Get Fit or Go Fight
      The Softer They Fall

      Lady Chitterly's Lover P2
      The Big Record
      Operation Tiger
      The Meister Spy

      6/4/17 - Today I continued my restoration of the Have Gun Will Travel library by adding thirty-six of the thirty-eight episodes that make up Seasons 4. This is the third or fourth time I have restored this library, so hope for the best. Have Gun – Will Travel (1957-1963) was an American Western television series that aired on CBS. It was rated number three or number four in the Nielsen ratings every year of its first four seasons. The series follows the adventures of a man calling himself "Paladin" (played by Richard Boone), taking his name from that of the foremost knight warriors in Charlemagne's court. He is a gentleman gunfighter who travels around the Old West working as a mercenary gunfighter for people who hire him to solve their problems for them. Although Paladin will charge steep fees to clients who can afford to hire him, typically $1000 per job, he will provide his services for free (i.e., pro bono) to poor people who need his help. Like many westerns, the television show was set during a nebulous period after the Civil War. This is my favorite western series. In my opinion, it is the best "thinking man's" adventure series ever produced. I can't recommend it highly enough. The library is located in the Western TV Shows catalog.

      6/3/17 - Today I added all nineteen available episodes (from Hulu) to Season 4 of the Taxi Library. Taxi was an American sitcom that originally aired from 1978 to 1982 on ABC and from 1982 to 1983 on NBC. The series—which won 18 Emmy Awards, including three for Outstanding Comedy Series—focuses on the everyday lives of a handful of New York City taxi drivers and their abusive dispatcher. The show focuses on the employees of the fictional Sunshine Cab Company, and its principal setting is the company's fleet garage in Manhattan. Among the drivers, only Alex Rieger, who is disillusioned with life, considers cab driving his profession. The others view it as a temporary job. Elaine Nardo is a single mother working as a receptionist at an art gallery. Tony Banta is a boxer with a losing record. Bobby Wheeler is a struggling actor. All take pity on "Reverend Jim" Ignatowski, an aging hippie minister, who is burnt out from drugs, so they help him become a cabbie. The characters also included Latka Gravas, their innocent, wide-eyed mechanic from an unnamed foreign country, and Louie De Palma, the despotic dispatcher. There are 75 episodes available on Hulu (114 in the complete series) so one more season to go. The new library is located in the Comedy Shows Catalog.

      6/2/17 - Today I added the next nineteen available episodes to the Dad's Army library, taking us to Season 5, Episode 12. Dad's Army (1968-1977) was a television sitcom about the British Home Guard during the Second World War. It was written by Jimmy Perry and David Croft and broadcast on the BBC. The show is set in the fictional seaside town of Walmington-on-Sea, on the south coast of England. The local Home Guard platoon would be on the front line in the event of an invasion across the English Channel. Stars: Arthur Lowe, John Le Mesurier, Clive Dunn. I'd never heard of this show, nor have I seen any of the episodes yet, but I did a little research and it gets very good reviews. The new library is located in the Comedy Shows Catalog. The added episodes are all of them on the 2nd library page. More to come!

      6/1/17 - Today I added the first twenty-eight episodes of Season 5 to the Father Knows Best library. Father Knows Best was an American sitcom starring Robert Young, Jane Wyatt, Elinor Donahue, Billy Gray, and Lauren Chapin. The series, which first began on radio in 1949, aired for six seasons with a total of 203 episodes. The series debuted on CBS in October 1954. It ran for one season and was canceled the following year. NBC picked up the series where it remained for three seasons. After a second cancellation in 1958, CBS picked up the series yet again where it aired until May 1960. The popular radio show came to life in this hit sitcom about a wise family man, Jim Anderson, played by Robert Young, his common-sense wife Margaret and their children Betty, Bud and Kathy. Whenever the kids need advice on anything at all, they can always turn to their father, because father knows best. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas catalog. The rest of Season 5 plus all of Season 6 to come.

      5/30/17 - Today I added all thirty-nine epsides of Season 3 to the Leave It to Beaver library. Leave It to Beaver was an American television situation comedy about an inquisitive and often naïve boy, Theodore "The Beaver" Cleaver (portrayed by Jerry Mathers), and his adventures at home, in school, and around his suburban neighborhood. The show also starred Barbara Billingsley and Hugh Beaumont as Beaver's parents, June and Ward Cleaver, and Tony Dow as Beaver's brother Wally. The show has attained an iconic status in the United States, with the Cleavers exemplifying the idealized suburban family of the mid-20th century. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added episodes are the last 5 on the first library page, and all of them on the second page. I have all of the series episodes bookmrked, ao many more to come! I should mention that these new videos are all auto-play, which means they start playing as soon as you arrive at the page. If you are using an Internet Explorer browser they won't play at all - but there is a link on each library page that sends you to the Playlist for this collection, which contains the complete series and can be watched using IE.

      5/29/17 - Today I added Rustling, Oil Land, The Will, The Bates Story, Ride On and Jar Jellies to The Cisco Kid library. The Cisco Kid is a fictional character found in numerous film, radio, television and comic book series based on the fictional Western character created by O. Henry in his 1907 short story "The Caballero's Way", published in the collection Heart of the West. In movies and television, the Kid was depicted as a heroic Mexican caballero, even though he was originally a cruel outlaw. The TV series television series starred Duncan Renaldo in the title role, The Cisco Kid, and Leo Carrillo as the jovial sidekick, Pancho. Cisco and Pancho were technically desperados, wanted for unspecified crimes, but instead viewed by the poor as Robin Hood figures who assisted the downtrodden when law enforcement officers proved corrupt or unwilling to help. It was also the first television series to be filmed in color, although few viewers saw it in color until the 1960s. This is the first time I have added episodes to this library since July of 2014. I also added the thirteen remaining available episodes to the Seaway library. Seaway (1965–1966) followed the adventures of Nick King (played by Stephen Young) who works as a ship owners' agent, investigating crimes involving shipping. He is assisted by Department of Transport agent Leslie Fox (Austin Willis), and the special police force patrolling the Saint Lawrence Seaway. Episodes were filmed in various locations along the seaway, primarily Toronto and Montreal. They were generally set in Canada, although the two-parter "Gunpowder and Paint" was partially set in Cleveland (though filmed in Toronto.) This library is located in the Action and Adventure Catalog. The added episodes are all of those on the 2nd library page.

The series takes place at the Shady Rest Hotel, which is run by Kate Bradley, her Uncle Joe Carson, and her three daughters Billie Jo, Bobbie Jo, and Betty Jo Bradley. The series is one of three interrelated shows about rural characters created by Paul Henning. Petticoat Junction was created upon the success of Henning's previous rural/urban-themed sitcom The Beverly Hillbillies (1962–1971). The success of Petticoat Junction led to a spin-off, Green Acres (1965–1971). This library is located in the Paul Henning, Family Comedies and Dramas, Comedy Shows and the Whacky Dames Catalogs.

      Communication
      Girl Volunteer

      Show Business

      5/26/17 - Today I added thirteen episodes to the The Lone Ranger library. The Lone Ranger was a TV show that starred Clayton Moore as the Lone Ranger and Jay Silverheels as Tonto. It was the ABC television network's first big hit of the early 1950s. Moore's tenure as the Ranger is probably the best-known treatment of the franchise. Moore was replaced in the third season by John Hart, but he returned for the final two seasons. The fifth and final season was the only one shot in color. A total of 221 episodes were made. Ths library is located in the Lone Ranger Catalog, which can be found in the Western Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. The added episodes are:

      Clover in the Dust
      Tarnished Star
      Canuck
      Mission For Tonto
      Outlaws in Greasepaint

      I also added eighteen episodes too 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. The added episodes are all of those found on the first library page (from seasons 1 and 2).

      5/25/17 - Late last night I added the final thireteen episodes to The Doris Day Show library. This completes the series. Doris Day (born Doris Mary Ann Kappelhoff; April 3, 1922 or 1924) is an American actress, singer, and animal rights activist. Day began her career as a big band singer in 1939. Her popularity began to rise after her first hit recording "Sentimental Journey", in 1945. After leaving Les Brown & His Band of Renown to embark on a solo career, Day started her long-lasting partnership with Columbia Records, which remained her only recording label. Over the course of her career, Day appeared in 39 films. She was ranked the biggest box-office star, the only woman appearing on that list in the era, for four years (1960, 1962, 1963 and 1964), ranking in the top 10 for ten years (1951–1952 and 1959–1966). All of this is located in the Doris Day Catalog, which is located in the Feature Films Catalog and in the Catalog of Stars. The Doris Day Show can also be found in the Whacky Dames an the Family Comedies & Drama Catalogs.

      5/24/17 - Today I created a new Lamb Chop's Play Along library with twelve episodes to start. Lamb Chop's Play-Along! is an American half-hour preschool children's television series that was shown on PBS in the United States from 1992 to 1995, and in reruns until August 29, 1997. It was created and hosted by puppeteer Shari Lewis, and featured her puppet character Lamb Chop. Shari Lewis said her goal for the audience is "participation, not passive observance". She said: "our goal is, don't just sit there - come play with me". She wanted to "attack the shorter attention span of today's children with a fast-paced show using colorful electronic effects". She said in an interview with the Philadelphia Inquirer: "I know that when children watch TV, they go into a stupor. Parents think (their children) are interested, but what they really are is [bored]". This is another series where the information available in the various TV databases is scant and often contradictory. In fact, I couldn't find any episodes that matched the plot summaries as listed at iMDB and other databases. So I decided to forego plot summaries altogether and to go with the episode titles as they are shown following the common introductory sequence for all of the episodes I found. The new library is located in the Kid's Shows Catalog. Lewis testified that making smart content for children was not that hard to produce and should be done with increasing frequency. She said that if children are challenged, they will be productive members of society. She said, "I don't care if you tack a prosocial message at the end of the show. You have not done a quality show"

      5/23/17 - Today I was short on time so I decided to work on a couple of small libraries. I created a new Your Jeweler's Showcase library with seven episodes to start. Your Jeweler's Showcase (1952-1953) was a dramatic anthology series sponsored by The International Silver Company & The Hamilton Watch Company. And that is about all I could find out about the series. There seems to be very scant information about it - and what I do find on different databases is often contradictory. I could not find, for instance, any plot summaries, and the air dates vary from database to database. So there you are... I also added five episodes to the Suspicion library, which increases to size of the library by 350% from 2 episodes to 7. Suspicion is the title of an American television mystery drama series which aired on the NBC from 1957 through 1959. The executive producer of Suspicion was film director Alfred Hitchcock. The program was hosted by actor Dennis O'Keefe from 1957 through 1958. In 1959, Walter Abel became the host. The one hour long program, like others offered by Hitchcock, was designed to play on peoples fears and suspicions. Both of these ibraries are located in the Television Drama Catalog. Suspicion can also be found in the Alfred Hitchcock Catalog. And finally I want to mention the unfotunate demise of actor, Roger Moore, in my previous post. I urge Moore's fans to head on over to the Roger Moore Catalog (located in the Catalog of Stars) where they will find two of his television vehicles, Ivanhoe and The Saint, plus a Feature Film library with over a dozen of his movies. The Roger Moore Catalog is located Here.

      5/22/17 - Today I added the remaining twelve episodes to Season 2 of the 12 O'Clock High library. 12 O'Clock High (1964-1967) was an American drama series set in World War II. This TV series was originally broadcast on ABC-TV and was based on the motion picture Twelve O'Clock High (1949). The series was a co-production of 20th Century Fox Television (Fox had also produced the movie) and QM Productions (one of their few non-law enforcement series). The series follows the missions of the fictitious 918th Bombardment Group (Heavy) of the U.S. Army Air Forces (USAAF), equipped with B-17 Flying Fortress heavy bombers, stationed at Archbury Field, England (a fictitious air base). For the first season, many of the characters from the book and 1949 movie were retained, including Brigadier General Frank Savage, Major Harvey Stovall, Major Cobb, Doc Kaiser, and General Pritchard, albeit played by different actors from in the motion picture. In addition to these characters, several other infrequently reappearing characters were introduced, including Captain (later Major) Joseph "Joe" Gallagher, who appeared in two episodes (episodes 1 and 24). At the end of the first season, the studio executives decided a younger-looking lead actor was needed. In the first episode of the second season, General Savage, played by Robert Lansing, was killed in action and replaced by Colonel Joe Gallagher, played by Paul Burke. (Burke, though considered more youthful-looking than Lansing, was actually two years older, a fact that TV critics were quick to point out.) The decision proved unpopular and Fthe ratings began to drop. This library is located in the Action and Adventure Catalogs. I have the entire series (78 episodes) bookmarked so many more to come. The added episodes are all of the ones on the 4th library page.

      5/21/17 - Today I built a new The Outer Limits: The New Series library with all twenty-one episodes from Season 1 to start. The Outer Limits was an American television series that aired on ABC from 1963 to 1965 at 7:30 PM Eastern Time on Mondays. The series is often compared to The Twilight Zone, but with a greater emphasis on science fiction stories (rather than stories just dealing with fantasy or supernatural matters). The Outer Limits was an anthology of self-contained episodes, sometimes with a plot twist at the end. This library is from the series revival in 1995, airing on Showtime from 1995 to 2000, then on Sci-Fi Channel from 2001 until its cancellation in 2002. The new library os accessed via the new Outer Limits Catalog, which is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog. I have the entire series bookmarked (7 seasons!) so many more to come. These are all auto-play videos which cannot be played individually using an Internet Explorer browser. To view the episodes individually in IE, go to the The Outer Limits Playlists library.

      5/20/17 - Today I created a new Thriller library with twenty episodes from Season 1 to start. 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. The new library is available in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror and the Boris Karloff Catalogs.

      5/19/17 - Today I completed my M*A*S*H library with all twenty-four episodes of Season 2. M*A*S*H is 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.

      5/18/17 - Today I added the last ten available episodes to the Casey Jones library, which completes the library until I find the one that's missing (Episode 22). Casey Jones (1957-1958) was an American Western series based around the pioneering western railroads. The series aired in syndication in the United States and was set in the late 19th century, featuring the adventures of railroad engineer Casey Jones and the crew of the Cannonball Express steam locomotive, fireman Wallie Sims and conductor Redrock Smith, working for the Midwest and Central Railroad. Stars: Alan Hale Jr., Bobby Clark, Eddy Waller. This library is located in the Western Shows and the Action and Adventure Catalogs. It can also be found in the Alan Hale, Jr. Catalog, located in the Catalog of Stars.

      5/17/17 - Late last night I was checking on some libraries I hadn't visited in a while and discovered that most of the of the Science Fiction Theatre library was gone. I immediately started searching on Daily Motion and was able to restore them all. Science Fiction Theatre (1955-1957) was hosted by Truman Bradley, a 1940s film actor and former war correspondent, each episode introduced stories which had an extrapolated scientific, or pseudo-scientific emphasis based on actual scientific data available in the 1950s. Typically, the story lines related to the life or work of scientists, engineers, inventors and explorers. The program concentrated on such concepts as space flight, robots, telepathy, flying saucers, time travel, and the intervention of extraterrestrials in human affairs. This library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror, Television Drama and the Action/Adventure Catalogs. This was one of my favorites growing up - I highly recommend it. The original library was completed in 2015 and had all of the episodes from YouTube. I looked at it about a year ago and it was still all there. I had to restore 55 of the 78 episodes, but it only took a couple of hours because all of the player pages were already built - I just had to change out the embed codes (about a mniute for each episode).

      5/15/17 - Today I added all twenty-eight episodes to Season 12 of the Bonanza Library. Bonanza was an NBC television western series that ran from 1959 to 1973. Lasting 14 seasons and 431 episodes, Bonanza is NBC's longest-running western, and ranks overall as the second-longest-running western series on U.S. network television (behind CBS' Gunsmoke), and within the top 10 longest-running, live-action American series. The show continues to air in syndication. The show is set around the 1860s and it centers on the wealthy Cartwright family, who live in the area of Virginia City, Nevada, bordering Lake Tahoe. The series stars Lorne Greene, Dan Blocker, Michael Landon, Pernell Roberts (who left after six seasons), and later David Canary and Mitch Vogel. I still have episodes for Seasons 13 and 14 to post - so more to come. This library is located in the Western Shows and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs.

      5/14/17 - Today I added fifteen episodes to Season 3 of the 77 Sunset Strip Library. 77 Sunset Strip was an American television private detective series created by Roy Huggins and starring Efrem Zimbalist, Jr., Roger Smith and Edd Byrnes. The series revolves around two Los Angeles private detectives, both former government secret agents: Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. played Stuart ("Stu") Bailey, a character Huggins had originated in his 1946 novel The Double Take (which he later adapted into the 1948 movie I Love Trouble, starring Franchot Tone in the role). Roger Smith played Jeff Spencer, also a former government agent, and a nonpracticing attorney. The duo worked out of a stylish office at 77 Sunset Boulevard (colloquially known as "Sunset Strip"), between La Cienega Boulevard and Alta Loma Road on the south side of the Strip next door to Dean Martin's real-life lounge, Dino's Lodge. This library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog. The added episodes are:

      Attic
      The Fanatics
      President's Daughter
      The Office Caper
      Widescreen Caper
      Negotiable Blonde
      Double Trouble
      Double Death
      Antwerp Caper
      Adam Gallant
      Valley Caper
      Rice Estate
      Hamlet Caper
      College Caper
      Corsican Caper

      5/13/17 - Today I created a new My World and Welcome To It library with three episodes to start. My World and Welcome to It was an American half-hour television sitcom based on the humor and cartoons of James Thurber. It starred William Windom as John Monroe, a Thurber-like writer and cartoonist who works for a magazine closely resembling The New Yorker called The Manhattanite. This series was suggested too me by an email correspondent (thanks, Richard B!), who said that it was one of his favorites growing up and that he had only been able to find short clipd from it. After an extensive search I managed to come up with three full episodes - I hope to find more. The new library is located in the Comedy Shows Catalog. I also decided to complete the Johnny Midnight Library by adding the last thirteen episodes. Johnny Midnight was an American crime drama that aired for one season in syndication from January to December 1960. The series stars Edmond O'Brien as the title character. O'Brien portrayed Johnny Midnight, a New York City actor turned private detective. Midnight's cases frequently focused upon Times Square and Broadway, where he had triumphed earlier on stage. Midnight lives in a plush Manhattan penthouse. O'Brien narrated the crime drama in the terse style associated with Humphrey Bogart or Walter Winchell. The theme song of the series is "Lullaby of Broadway". The new library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

      5/12/17 - Today I added the last eighteen episodes to the My Friend Flicka library which completes the library with the entire series intact. My Friend Flicka (1955-1956) was a 39-episode western television series set at the fictitious Goose Bar Ranch in Wyoming at the turn of the 20th century. The program was filmed in color but initially aired in black and white on CBS. It was a mid-season replacement for Gene Autry's The Adventures of Champion. Both series, however failed in the ratings against ABC's The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin. The series starred native Canadian Johnny Washbrook as Ken McLaughlin, a boy devoted to his horse Flicka, Swedish for "girl", but actually an Arabian sorrel named Wahana. Gene Evans played the authoritarian father Rob McLaughlin, a former U.S. Army cavalry officer. Anita Louise was cast as the gentle-spirited mother, Nell. Frank Ferguson portrayed Gus Broeberg, the loyal Swedish ranch hand. Flicka is based on a novel by Mary O'Hara, written at the Remount Ranch, located between Laramie and Cheyenne, Wyoming. Some Internet sites say that the series is set in Montana, where some of the filming was done. The majority of the filming, however, was at Fox Movie Ranch. My Friend Flicka holds the distinction of having been the first television series filmed by 20th Century Fox. This library is located in the Western Shows and the Action and Adventure Catalogs. The added episodes are all of them on the 2nd library page.

      5/11/17 - Today I added the last sixteen episodes to Season 2 of the Mama's Family library. 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. These videos are auto-play, they start playing as soon as you arrive at the page. I have the first four seasons (85 episodes) bookmarked, so many more to come! The added episodes are all of the ones on the 2nd library page.

      5/9/17 - Late last night I created a new Babylon 5 library with seventeen episodes of Season 1 to start. Set between the years 2257 and 2262, it depicts a future where Earth has sovereign states, and a unifying Earth government. Colonies within the solar system, and beyond, make up the Earth Alliance, and contact has been made with other spacefaring species. The ensemble cast portray alien ambassadorial staff and humans assigned to the 5-mile long Babylon 5 space station, a center for trade and diplomacy. Described as "one of the most complex programs on television", the various story arcs drew upon the prophesies, religious zealotry, racial tensions, social pressures, and political rivalries which existed within each of their cultures, to create a contextual framework for the motivations and consequences of the protagonists' actions. With a strong emphasis on character development set against a backdrop of conflicting ideologies on multiple levels. In Season 1 (storyline year 2258) Commander Jeffrey Sinclair (Michael O'Hare) is in charge of the station. Much of the story revolves around his gradual discovery that it was his capture by the Minbari at the Battle of the Line which ended the war against Earth. At the beginning of 2259, Captain John Sheridan (Bruce Boxleitner) replaces Sinclair as the military governor of the station after Sinclair is reassigned as ambassador to Minbar. The new library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog. I have most of the series episodes, plus 6 TV movies based on the series, bookmarked, so many more to come! I have to say that I loved this show and watched it religiously when it aired starting in 1994. I looked for it many times on Hulu and Netflix but never could find it. After another fruitless search yesterday I decided on a whim to look for it on Daily Motion and was delighted to find almost the entire series! I intend to start watching them today - and recommend that if you want to as well that you start soon - there's no telling how long these will last on Daily Motion.

      5/8/17 - Today I added twenty-one episodes to Seasons 2 and 3 of The Rifleman library. The Rifleman (1958-1963) was an American Western television program starring Chuck Connors as rancher Lucas McCain and Johnny Crawford as his son, Mark McCain. It was set in the 1870s and 1880s in the town of North Fork, New Mexico Territory. It was one of the first prime time series on American television to show a widowed parent raising a child. The program was titled to reflect McCain's use of a modified Winchester rifle. Shown at the beginning of every episode in the opening credits, McCain would fire the rifle using the lever rather than pulling the trigger. This series has special significance for me because not only was it one of my favorites, but Chuck Connors had a house in Woodlands Hills not far from where I grew up in Canoga Park. Kids in my neighborhood would talk their parents into taking them to trick-or-treat in Woodland Hills because Mr. Connors would usually come to the door himself and distribute goodies on Halloween. This library is located Chuck Connors Catalog which can be accessed via the Western Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. The Rifleman library is also available seperately in the Western Shows Catalog. The added episodes are:
      The Spiked Rifle
      Letter of the Law
      The Coward
      The Baby Sitter
      Time for Singing
      The Prodigal
      Trail of Hate
      The Schoolmaster
      The Promoter
      The Silent Knife
      Miss Bertie
      Six Years and a Day
      Flowers by the Door
      The Long Trek
      The Actress
      Face of Yesterday
      Closer Than a Brother
      Dark Day at North Fork
      Stopover
      Death Trap
      The Queue

      5/7/17 - Today I restored my Hawaii Five-0 Library with the thirty-eight available episodes of Seasons 4 and 5. 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 - I chose to post these 35 because most of the player pages were already built for the previous version of the library - I just needed to change the embed codes. The next time I post episodes they will be the available episodes of Seasons' 1 and 2 - to fill things in before I continue on to the remaining seasons. The library is available in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

      5/6/17 - Today I added all thirty-three episodes of Season 4 to the Father Knows Best library. Father Knows Best was an American sitcom starring Robert Young, Jane Wyatt, Elinor Donahue, Billy Gray, and Lauren Chapin. The series, which first began on radio in 1949, aired for six seasons with a total of 203 episodes. The series debuted on CBS in October 1954. It ran for one season and was canceled the following year. NBC picked up the series where it remained for three seasons. After a second cancellation in 1958, CBS picked up the series yet again where it aired until May 1960. The popular radio show came to life in this hit sitcom about a wise family man, Jim Anderson, played by Robert Young, his common-sense wife Margaret and their children Betty, Bud and Kathy. Whenever the kids need advice on anything at all, they can always turn to their father, because father knows best. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas catalog. The entire series is available on Hulu, so many more to come.

      5/5/17 - Today I created a new Seaway library with fourteen episodes to start. Seaway (1965–1966) followed the adventures of Nick King (played by Stephen Young) who works as a ship owners' agent, investigating crimes involving shipping. He is assisted by Department of Transport agent Leslie Fox (Austin Willis), and the special police force patrolling the Saint Lawrence Seaway. Episodes were filmed in various locations along the seaway, primarily Toronto and Montreal. They were generally set in Canada, although the two-parter "Gunpowder and Paint" was partially set in Cleveland (though filmed in Toronto.) I have 27 of the 30 episodes that make up the complete series bookmarked - so more to come. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure Catalog.

      5/4/17 - Today I added sixteen episodes to the Petticoat Junction library. Petticoat Junction was an American situation comedy that originally aired on CBS. The series takes place at the Shady Rest Hotel, which is run by Kate Bradley, her Uncle Joe Carson, and her three daughters Billie Jo, Bobbie Jo, and Betty Jo Bradley. The series is one of three interrelated shows about rural characters created by Paul Henning. Petticoat Junction was created upon the success of Henning's previous rural/urban-themed sitcom The Beverly Hillbillies (1962–1971). The success of Petticoat Junction led to a spin-off, Green Acres (1965–1971). This library is located in the Paul Henning, Family Comedies and Dramas, Comedy Shows and the Whacky Dames Catalogs. The added episodes are from Seasons 3, 5, 6 and 7 and are all of the ones on the 3rd library page.

      5/3/17 - Today I added the remaining twenty-two available episodes to Season 2 of the Hogan's Heroes library (thanks again to Daily Motion). Hogan's Heroes (1965-1971) was an American television sitcom set in a German prisoner of war (POW) camp during World War II. It ran on the CBS network. Bob Crane starred as Colonel Robert E. Hogan, co-ordinating an international crew of Allied prisoners running a Special Operations group from the camp. Werner Klemperer played Colonel Wilhelm Klink, the incompetent commandant of the camp, and John Banner was the inept sergeant-of-the-guard, Hans Schultz. This library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Comedy Shows Catalog Catalogs. The added episodes are:
      Schultz Brigade
      Diamonds in the Rough
      Operation Briefcase
      Battle of Stalag 13

      5/2/17 - Today I continued my restoration of the Have Gun Will Travel library by adding seventeen episodes to Seasons 3. This is the third or fourth time I have restored this library, so hope for the best. Have Gun – Will Travel (1957-1963) was an American Western television series that aired on CBS. It was rated number three or number four in the Nielsen ratings every year of its first four seasons. The series follows the adventures of a man calling himself "Paladin" (played by Richard Boone), taking his name from that of the foremost knight warriors in Charlemagne's court. He is a gentleman gunfighter who travels around the Old West working as a mercenary gunfighter for people who hire him to solve their problems for them. Although Paladin will charge steep fees to clients who can afford to hire him, typically $1000 per job, he will provide his services for free (i.e., pro bono) to poor people who need his help. Like many westerns, the television show was set during a nebulous period after the Civil War. This is my favorite western series. In my opinion, it is the best "thinking man's" adventure series ever produced. I can't recommend it highly enough. The library is located in the Western TV Shows catalog. The added episodes are:

      Fragile
      Black Hankerchief
      The Golden Toad
      Tiger
      Champagne Safari
      Charley Red Dog
      One Came Back
      The Prophet
      Day Of The Badman
      The Pledge
      Jenny
      Night The Town Died
      The Ledge
      Lady On The Wall
      Misguided Father
      Ambush
      Black Sheep

      5/1/17 - Today I created a new Dad's Army library with fifteen episodes to start. Dad's Army (1968-1977) was a television sitcom about the British Home Guard during the Second World War. It was written by Jimmy Perry and David Croft and broadcast on the BBC. The show is set in the fictional seaside town of Walmington-on-Sea, on the south coast of England. The local Home Guard platoon would be on the front line in the event of an invasion across the English Channel. Stars: Arthur Lowe, John Le Mesurier, Clive Dunn. I'd never heard of this show, nor have I seen any of the episodes yet, but I did a little research and it gets very good reviews. The new library is located in the Comedy Shows Catalog.

      4/30/17 - Today I added eleven episodes to Season 1 of the The Lone Ranger library. The Lone Ranger was a TV show that starred Clayton Moore as the Lone Ranger and Jay Silverheels as Tonto. It was the ABC television network's first big hit of the early 1950s. Moore's tenure as the Ranger is probably the best-known treatment of the franchise. Moore was replaced in the third season by John Hart, but he returned for the final two seasons. The fifth and final season was the only one shot in color. A total of 221 episodes were made. Ths library is located in the Lone Ranger Catalog, which can be found in the Western Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. Because this library started out Hulu-based, and then Hulu decided to take down their collection, some of the episodes I added today are restored from the original library. The added episodes are:

      Gold Fever
      Death Trap
      The Black Hat
      Devil's Pass
      Man Without a Gun
      Outlaw of the Plains
      White Man's Magic
      Trouble for Tonto
      Sheriff of Gunstock
      The Wrong Man
      The Black Widow

      4/29/17 - Today I added all twenty-five episodes of Season 3 to the Cheers library. Cheers (1982-1993) was an American sitcom that ran for eleven seasons between 1982 and 1993. The show was produced in association with Paramount Network Television for NBC. The series is set in a bar named Cheers in Boston, Massachusetts, where a group of locals meet to drink, relax, and socialize. The show's main theme song, written and performed by Gary Portnoy lent its famous refrain "Where Everybody Knows Your Name" as the show's tagline. After premiering on September 30, 1982, it was nearly canceled during its first season when it ranked almost last in ratings for its premiere (74th out of 77 shows). Cheers, however, eventually became a highly rated television show in the United States, earning a top-ten rating during eight of its eleven seasons, including one season at number one. The show spent most of its run on NBC's Thursday night "Must See TV" lineup. Its widely watched series finale was broadcast on May 20, 1993, and the show's 274 episodes have been successfully syndicated worldwide. Nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series for all eleven of its seasons on the air, it earned 28 Primetime Emmy Awards from a record of 117 nominations. The character Frasier Crane (Kelsey Grammer) was featured in his eponymous spin-off show, which aired until 2004 and included guest appearances by virtually all of the major and minor Cheers characters. Because of the scope of this show's impact, the new library is located in the Comedy Shows Catalog, and also the Family Comedies and Dramas and the Whacky Dames Catalogs. I have all 11 Seasons of the complete series bookmarked, so many more to come!

      4/28/17 - Today I created a new Bill Dana Show library with nineteen episodes to start. Bill Dana (born October 5, 1924) is an American comedian, actor and screenwriter. He often appeared on television shows such as The Ed Sullivan Show, frequently in the guise of a heavily accented Bolivian character named José Jiménez. The Bill Dana Show was a comedy series starring Bill Dana and Jonathan Harris. The plot follows the daily lifestyle of Latin American Jose Jimenez, as a bellhop in a New York City hotel. The show was a spin-off from Make Room For Daddy, which showed the character of Jose as an elevator operator before he became a bellhop. The hotel was practically Jose's entire world; he lived in special bachelor headquarters provided for hotel employees, ate in the hotel kitchen, and had social contact only with employees and guests of the hotel. In his goodhearted naivete he saw only the good in the people around him. His biggest problems were his fellow bellhop Eddie (Gary Crosby), who was constantly trying to get Jose to wise up; the less-than-understanding hotel manager Mr. Phillips (Jonathan Harris, who would soon play Dr. Smith on Lost in Space) and the bumbling hotel detective Byron Glick (Don Adams, in a predecessor to the character he would play on Get Smart). In the second season Maggie Peterson played Susie, a waitress in the hotel's coffee shop. My first memory of Bill Dana was on the Steve Allen Show. Steve would conduct "Man on the Street" interviews with Dana, Don Knotts and Louie Nye. I actually used to attend the live broadcasts in Hollywood when I was in High School, and so I got to see all those guys in person. The new library is located in the Comedy Shows Catalog.

      4/27/17 - Today I added the last twenty-two episodes to Season 1 of the Leave It to Beaver library. Leave It to Beaver was an American television situation comedy about an inquisitive and often naïve boy, Theodore "The Beaver" Cleaver (portrayed by Jerry Mathers), and his adventures at home, in school, and around his suburban neighborhood. The show also starred Barbara Billingsley and Hugh Beaumont as Beaver's parents, June and Ward Cleaver, and Tony Dow as Beaver's brother Wally. The show has attained an iconic status in the United States, with the Cleavers exemplifying the idealized suburban family of the mid-20th century. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added episodes are the last 5 on the first library page, and all of them on the second page. I recently found a large cache of these shows, ao many more to come! I should mention that these new videos are all auto-play, which means they start playing as soon as you arrive at the page. If you are using an Internet Explorer browser they won't play at all - but there is a link on each library page that sends you to the Playlist for this collection, which contains the complete series and can be watched using IE.

      4/26/17 - Today I added seventeen episodes to the The Beverly Hillibillies Library. The Beverly Hillbillies was an American sitcom originally broadcast on CBS for nine seasons. The series starred Buddy Ebsen, Irene Ryan, Donna Douglas, and Max Baer, Jr. as a poor backwoods family who moved to Beverly Hills, California, after striking oil on their land. The Beverly Hillbillies ranked among the top 20 most-watched programs on television for eight of its nine seasons, twice ranking as the number one series of the year, with a number of episodes that remain among the most-watched television episodes of all time. I recently discovered a large cache of these episodes so many more to come. This library is locate in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added episodes are:

      Pollution Solution
      Clampetts in Washington
      Jed Buys the Capitol
      Mark Templeton Arrives
      Don't Marry a Frogman
      Doctor, Cure My Frog
      The Frog Family

      Robert Audubon Getty Crockett

      4/25/17 - Today I created a new Trackdown Library with nine episodes to start. Trackdown (1957-1959) starred Robert Culp as Texas Ranger Hoby Gilman. It was set in the 1870s after the American Civil War. In early episodes, stories focused on Gilman going to different Texas towns in pursuit of wanted fugitives. At mid-season, the series became set in the fictional town of Porter, in Central Texas. Gilman is the de facto sheriff in Porter. Occasionally, his duties as a Texas Ranger took him out of town, where he used his fast gun to "track down" and apprehend wanted criminals throughout the Lone Star State. I have had a single episode of this series bookmarked for several years but never found any others until recently. These nine episodes are all I have found so far - but I will keep looking. The new library is located in the Western TV Shows catalog. I want to mention, by the way, that there is a particular episode that seems to be some kind of 1950's prophecy regarding current events. Here's the description: The End of the World - Season 1, Episode 30 - 9 May 1958 - Hoby has to deal with a snake oil salesman called "Trump". selling the end of the world to a town filled with gullible people. His solution to their problem is magical umbrellas for $75! As I was putting this up it suddenly occurred too me that this is the third Robert Culp series I have posted - so I created a new Robert Culp Catalog to house the new library along with the I Spy and The Greatest American Hero libraries.

      While I was at it I also restored eight episodes (all I have found so far) to the Wanted: Dead or Alive library. Starring Steve McQueen in his first television vehicle, the series only lasted three seasons because McQueen was soon after snapped up by the big screen and never looked back. This library is located in the Western Shows and the Action and Adventure Catalogs. At one time I had the entire series from Hulu - but Hulu moved their collection into the "Pay-Per-View" category, so I lost the library.

      4/24/17 - Last night I added ten episodes to the restored The Avengers Library. The Avengers was an espionage British television series created in 1961. The Avengers initially focused on Dr. David Keel (Ian Hendry) and his assistant John Steed (Patrick Macnee). Hendry left after the first series and Steed became the main character, partnered with a succession of assistants. Steed's most famous assistants were intelligent, stylish and assertive women: Cathy Gale (Honor Blackman), Emma Peel (Diana Rigg), and Tara King (Linda Thorson). The Avengers ran from 1961 until 1969, screening as one-hour episodes its entire run. The restored library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog. The added episodes include nine from Season 4 and one from Season 5:

      Room Without a View
      Small Game for Big Hunters
      The Girl from Auntie
      The Thirteenth Hole
      Quick Slow Death
      What the Butler Saw
      The House that Jack Built
      A Sense of History
      How to Succeed...at Murder
      The Hidden Tiger

      4/23/17 - Today I added twenty-nine episodes to 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 stars Ozzie Nelson and his wife, singer Harriet Nelson (née Snyder, professionally), and their young sons, David and Eric "Ricky" Nelson. Don DeFore had a recurring role as the Nelsons' friendly neighbor "Thorny". On a side note, this was the very first episodic TV series library I created. Up until then I had been only loading Feature Films. With (now) 350 episodes, it is also one of the largest libraries on the site. A regular contributor too the Internet Archive has been putting these episodes up frequently over the past few months - so I expect there will be more too come. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added episodes, which are spread out throughout several Seasons, are:
      Fish Story
      Curiosity
      The Camera
      The Swimming Pool
      Ricky is Micky
      Surprise for Clara

      4/22/17 - Today I continued my restoration of the Have Gun Will Travel library by adding eighteen episodes to Seasons 1, 2 and 3. This is the third or fourth time I have rstored this library, so hope for the best. Have Gun – Will Travel (1957-1963) was an American Western television series that aired on CBS. It was rated number three or number four in the Nielsen ratings every year of its first four seasons. The series follows the adventures of a man calling himself "Paladin" (played by Richard Boone), taking his name from that of the foremost knight warriors in Charlemagne's court. He is a gentleman gunfighter who travels around the Old West working as a mercenary gunfighter for people who hire him to solve their problems for them. Although Paladin will charge steep fees to clients who can afford to hire him, typically $1000 per job, he will provide his services for free (i.e., pro bono) to poor people who need his help. Like many westerns, the television show was set during a nebulous period after the Civil War. This is my favorite western series. In my opinion, it is the best "thinking man's" adventure series ever produced. I can't recommend it highly enough. The library is located in the Western TV Shows catalog. The added episodes are:

      The Yuma Treasure
      The Hanging Cross
      Helen of Abajinian
      Killer's Widow
      Gun Shy
      Deliver the Body
      The Scorched Feather
      Monster of Moon Ridge
      The Long Hunt
      Borrasca Bend
      Maggie O'Bannion
      Alaska
      The Man Who Lost
      The Haunted Trees
      Episode In Laredo
      Les Girls
      Shot By Request
      Pancho

      4/21/17 - Late last night I restored The Virginian Library with nineteen episodes to start. The Virginian (1962-1971) - AKA The Men from Shiloh in its final year - was an American Western television series starring James Drury and Doug McClure which aired on NBC. It was a spin-off from a 1958 summer series called Decision. Filmed in color, The Virginian became television's first 90-minute Western series (75 minutes excluding commercial breaks). Immensely successful, it ran for nine seasons—television's third longest running western, behind Bonanza at 14 seasons and 430 episodes, and Gunsmoke at 20 seasons and 635 episodes. The series is loosely based on the novel of the same name. Interestingly, the restored library only contains 3 episodes that were in the original library - all the rest are new. This library is located in the Western TV Shows catalog. The 3 episodes from the original library are the first 3 listed on the library page.

      4/20/17 - Today I created a new Johnny Midnight Library with sixteen episodes to start. Johnny Midnight was an American crime drama that aired for one season in syndication from January to December 1960. The series stars Edmond O'Brien as the title character. O'Brien portrayed Johnny Midnight, a New York City actor turned private detective. Midnight's cases frequently focused upon Times Square and Broadway, where he had triumphed earlier on stage. Midnight lives in a plush Manhattan penthouse. O'Brien narrated the crime drama in the terse style associated with Humphrey Bogart or Walter Winchell. The theme song of the series is "Lullaby of Broadway". The new library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

      4/19/17 - Today I added all twenty-six episodes of Season 3 to the Maverick Library. Maverick (1957-1962) was an American Western television series with comedic overtones which ran on ABC and starred James Garner as Bret Maverick, an adroitly articulate cardsharp. Eight episodes into the first season, he was joined by Jack Kelly as his brother Bart Maverick, and from that point on, Garner and Kelly alternated leads from week to week, sometimes teaming up for the occasional two-brother episode. The Mavericks were poker players from Texas who traveled all over the American Old West and on Mississippi riverboats, constantly getting into and out of life-threatening trouble of one sort or another, usually involving money, women, or both. They would typically find themselves weighing a financial windfall against a moral dilemma. More often than not, their consciences trumped their wallets since both Mavericks were intrinsically ethical. When Garner left the series after the third season due to a legal dispute, Roger Moore was added to the cast as their cousin Beau Maverick. Robert Colbert appeared later in the fourth season as a third Maverick brother, Brent Maverick. No more than two of the series leads ever appeared together in the same episode, and usually only one. This library is located in the Western TV Shows catalog. These are all the episodes I have found so far (no Season 2 episodes, for instance) but I will keep looking.

      4/18/17 - Today I added twenty-four episodes to the restored Rawhide library. Rawhide was an American Western TV series starring Eric Fleming and Clint Eastwood that aired for eight seasons on the CBS network on Friday nights, from January 9, 1959 to September 3, 1965, before moving to Tuesday nights from September 14, 1965 until January 4, 1966, with a total of 217 black-and-white episodes. The series was produced and sometimes directed by Charles Marquis Warren, who also produced early episodes of Gunsmoke. This was Eastwood's stepping stone to fame and fortune as he became one of the few TV stars to successfully make the move into starring roles in movies. I also have ten of the Season 8 episodes - but I need to build pages for them, since they weren't in the original library when it disappeared. This library is located in the Western Shows Catalog. The added episodes are:
      Tumbleweed
      Curious Street
      The Dog Days
      The Calico Gun
      Misplaced Indians
      Fear in the Streets
      The Judas Trap
      In No Man's Land
      A Burst of Evil
      Jacob's Well
      Buffalo Smokehouse
      Devil and His Due
      The Dust Flower
      The Music Maker
      The Silent Web
      The Last Chance
      Garden of Eden
      Dragoon Crossing
      Night Visitor
      Road to Yesterday
      Superstition Prairie
      Poco Tiempo
      The Captive
      Married Widow

      4/17/17 - Today I added the first seventeen episodes to Season 2 of the 12 O'Clock High library. 12 O'Clock High (1964-1967) was an American drama series set in World War II. This TV series was originally broadcast on ABC-TV and was based on the motion picture Twelve O'Clock High (1949). The series was a co-production of 20th Century Fox Television (Fox had also produced the movie) and QM Productions (one of their few non-law enforcement series). The series follows the missions of the fictitious 918th Bombardment Group (Heavy) of the U.S. Army Air Forces (USAAF), equipped with B-17 Flying Fortress heavy bombers, stationed at Archbury Field, England (a fictitious air base). For the first season, many of the characters from the book and 1949 movie were retained, including Brigadier General Frank Savage, Major Harvey Stovall, Major Cobb, Doc Kaiser, and General Pritchard, albeit played by different actors from in the motion picture. In addition to these characters, several other infrequently reappearing characters were introduced, including Captain (later Major) Joseph "Joe" Gallagher, who appeared in two episodes (episodes 1 and 24). At the end of the first season, the studio executives decided a younger-looking lead actor was needed. In the first episode of the second season, General Savage, played by Robert Lansing, was killed in action and replaced by Colonel Joe Gallagher, played by Paul Burke. (Burke, though considered more youthful-looking than Lansing, was actually two years older, a fact that TV critics were quick to point out.) The decision proved unpopular and the ratings began to drop. This library is located in the Action and Adventure Catalogs. I have the entire series (78 episodes) bookmarked so many more to come. The added episodes are all of the ones on the 3rd library page.

      4/16/17 - Today I added the last seventeen available episodes to the The Ann Sothern Show Library. The Ann Sothern Show was an American sitcom starring Ann Sothern that aired on CBS for 93 episodes. The series began on October 6, 1958, and ended on September 25, 1961. The Ann Sothern Show was Sothern's second sitcom for CBS. Her first series, Private Secretary, ended in 1957 after a contract dispute occurred between Sothern and Secretary's producer Jack Chertok. Several of Private Secretary's cast members appeared in the show. Katy O'Connor (Sothern) is the assistant manager of the Bartley House, a swank New York City hotel. Katy's boss, Jason Macauley (Ernest Truex), was a timid, elderly man who was constantly bullied by his overbearing wife, Flora (Reta Shaw). Katy's secretary, roommate, and best friend Olive was played by Ann Tyrrell, who had also appeared in Sothern's first series, Private Secretary, in a similar role. Other characters included Johnny Wallace (Jack Mullaney), a bellboy who had a crush on Katy, and Paul Monteney (Jacques Scott), a suave, French room clerk. In an effort to improve the series' ratings, it was retooled midway through the first season. In the twenty fourth episode, "Katy's New Boss", Mr. Macauley is transferred to the Bartley House hotel in Calcutta, along with wife Flora. Don Porter, who had also appeared in Private Secretary as Sothern's character's boss, portrayed James Devery, Mr. Macauley's replacement. Mr. Devery was a younger, somewhat stubborn manager who tended to get carried away with some new, far-fetched idea. After Porter joined the cast, ratings for the series improved and it was renewed for a second season. In 1959, the series won a Golden Globe Award for Best TV Show. This completes the library until I find more of the missing episodes. This library is located in the Ann Sothern Catalog, which is located in the Whacky Dames Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. The added episodes are all of them on the 2nd library page.

      4/15/17 - Today I added twenty-one episodes to the 77 Sunset Strip Library. 77 Sunset Strip was an American television private detective series created by Roy Huggins and starring Efrem Zimbalist, Jr., Roger Smith and Edd Byrnes. The series revolves around two Los Angeles private detectives, both former government secret agents: Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. played Stuart ("Stu") Bailey, a character Huggins had originated in his 1946 novel The Double Take (which he later adapted into the 1948 movie I Love Trouble, starring Franchot Tone in the role). Roger Smith played Jeff Spencer, also a former government agent, and a nonpracticing attorney. The duo worked out of a stylish office at 77 Sunset Boulevard (colloquially known as "Sunset Strip"), between La Cienega Boulevard and Alta Loma Road on the south side of the Strip next door to Dean Martin's real-life lounge, Dino's Lodge. This library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog. The added episodes are all in Season 1 and 2:

      Clay Pigeon

      4/14/2017 - Today I added the fifteen remaning available episodes to the Iron Horse library. which competes the library until I find some of the 10 remaining episodes. Iron Horse (1966–1968) was an American Western television series that appeared on ABC and featured Dale Robertson as fictional gambler-turned-railroad baron Ben Calhoun. Costars included Gary Collins, Robert Random and Ellen Burstyn. The film's pilot was released as the film Scalplock. The plot centered on Calhoun's poker game-win of the incomplete Buffalo Pass, Scalplock, & Defiance Railroad and his wide-ranging attempts to finish the line despite obstacles that were ever-present. This library is located in the Western Shows Catalog and in the Dale Robertson Catalog, which can be found in the Catalog of Stars. The added episodes are:

      Right of Way
      Bottom of the Barrel
      Strange Device
      Epitaph
      Diablo
      Grapes of Grass Valley
      Leopards Try

      T is for Traitor
      Dealer's Choice
      Wild Track
      Death Has Two Faces

      4/13/17 - Today I created a new My Friend Flicka library with twenty-one episodes to start. My Friend Flicka (1955-1956) is a 39-episode western television series set at the fictitious Goose Bar Ranch in Wyoming at the turn of the 20th century. The program was filmed in color but initially aired in black and white on CBS. It was a mid-season replacement for Gene Autry's The Adventures of Champion. Both series, however failed in the ratings against ABC's The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin. The series starred native Canadian Johnny Washbrook as Ken McLaughlin, a boy devoted to his horse Flicka, Swedish for "girl", but actually an Arabian sorrel named Wahana. Gene Evans played the authoritarian father Rob McLaughlin, a former U.S. Army cavalry officer. Anita Louise was cast as the gentle-spirited mother, Nell. Frank Ferguson portrayed Gus Broeberg, the loyal Swedish ranch hand. Flicka is based on a novel by Mary O'Hara, written at the Remount Ranch, located between Laramie and Cheyenne, Wyoming. Some Internet sites say that the series is set in Montana, where some of the filming was done. The majority of the filming, however, was at Fox Movie Ranch. My Friend Flicka holds the distinction of having been the first television series filmed by 20th Century Fox. I have all 39 episodes of the complete series bookmarked, so more to come. The new library is located in the Western Shows and the Action and Adventure Catalogs.

      4/12/17 - Today I added all twenty-two episodes to Season 4 of 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 have all but 3 of the episodes of this 11 Season series bookmarked, so many. many more to come!

      4/11/17 - Late last night I added eighteen episodes to complete the restoration of the 3rd Rock from the Sun Library from DailyMotion with all 139 episodes that make up the series. 3rd Rock from the Sun (sometimes referred to as simply 3rd Rock) was an American sitcom that aired from 1996 to 2001 on NBC. The premise of the show revolves around an extraterrestrial research expedition attempting to live as a normal human family in the fictional city of Rutherford, Ohio, said to be 52 miles outside of Cleveland, where they live in an attic apartment. Humor was principally derived from the aliens' attempts to study human society and, because of their living as humans themselves while on Earth, to understand the human condition. I was able to restore this library fairly quickly because the previous version contained all of the series episodes, so all of those pages were already built. I should also mention that if you are offended by "dick jokes" you may want to avoid reading the titles of these episodes, which almost always refer in one way or another to the main character, Dr. Dick Soloman. There is even one title that is called "Dick Jokes"! I am not sure how they got away with this on a major television network, but it was probably because they didn't put the titles on the episodes when you watched them on TV. This library is located in the Comedy Shows, the Whacky Dames and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs. The added episodes are:

      Brains and Eggs
      Dick, Smoker
      Lonely Dick
      Ab-Dick-ted
      Truth or Dick
      Angry Dick
      I Enjoy Being a Dick
      Dick Like Me
      Deadly Dick
      Dick the Vote
      Mother the Alien
      Gobble, Gobble
      Dick on One Knee
      Same Old Song
      Dickmalion
      When Aliens Camp
      The Baby Menace
      Rutherford

      4/10/17 - Today I added ten episodes to Season 2 of the The Lone Ranger library. The Lone Ranger was a TV show that starred Clayton Moore as the Lone Ranger and Jay Silverheels as Tonto. It was the ABC television network's first big hit of the early 1950s. Moore's tenure as the Ranger is probably the best-known treatment of the franchise. Moore was replaced in the third season by John Hart, but he returned for the final two seasons. The fifth and final season was the only one shot in color. A total of 221 episodes were made. Ths library is located in the Lone Ranger Catalog, which can be found in the Western Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. Because this library started out Hulu-based, and then Hulu decided to take down their collection, some of the episodes I added today are restored from the original library. The added episodes are:

      Million Dollar Wallpaper
      Mission Bells
      Outlaw's Revenge
      The Squire
      Masked Deputy
      Desert Adventure
      One Jump Ahead
      Lady Killer
      Letter of the Law
      Behind the Law

      4/9/17 - Today I added all twenty-four episodes of Season 2 of the Tales From the Darkside library. Tales From the Darkside (1983–1988) was an American anthology horror TV series created by George A. Romero; it debuted in 1983. Each episode was an individual short story that often ended with a plot twist. The series' episodes spanned the genres of horror, science fiction, and fantasy, and some episodes featured elements of black comedy or more lighthearted themes. These videos are auto-play. As soon as you arrive at the page they start playing. The success of Romero's horror anthology film Creepshow led to initial inquiries about the possibilities of a Creepshow series. Because Warner Brothers owned certain aspects of Creepshow, Laurel Entertainment, which produced the film, opted to take their potential series into a similar, yet separate, direction, including changing the name to Tales from the Darkside. The new name reflected Creepshow's focus, that of a live-action EC-based horror comic book of the 1950s like Tales from the Crypt or The Vault of Horror. The new library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog.

      4/8/17 - Today I created a new Hong Kong library with all twenty-seven episodes of the complete series. Hong Kong (1960–1961) was a 26-episode adventure/drama series (plus an initial pilot episode) which aired on ABC television and helped to catapult Australian actor Rod Taylor into a major film star, primarily in the 1960s, beginning with his role in Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds. The series was a production of 20th Century Fox Television, and the final credit of each episode stated: "Filmed by Twentieth Century Fox Television Inc. at its Hollywood studios and in the Crown Colony of Hong Kong". Hong Kong was set in the then British Crown Colony of Hong Kong. Taylor portrayed Glenn Evans, an American journalist who worked in the exotic Far Eastern city. His search for stories led him into encounters with smugglers, murderers, drug peddlers, and mysterious women who would disappear behind beaded curtains. Taylor’s principal costars were Lloyd Bochner, who portrayed Chief Inspector Neil Campbell, and Jack Kruschen as Tully the bartender. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure Catalog, the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog, and in the Rod Taylor Catalog, which is available via the Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      4/7/17 - Today I created a new Tales of the 77th Bengal Lancers library with six episodes to start. Tales of the 77th Bengal Lancers (1956-1957) was a television series broadcast in the United States by NBC. In a period in which much of the programming on U.S. television consisted of Westerns, Tales of the 77th Bengal Lancers could best be described as an "Eastern". It consisted of the adventures of a fictional regiment of the famed real-life cavalry of the British Indian Army. The leading characters were the 77th's officers: the commander, Colonel Standish (Patrick Whyte) and two of his lieutenants, William Storm (Warren Stevens) and Michael Rhodes (Phil Carey). Rhodes was portrayed as a Canadian, purportedly because the actor portraying him, a native of New Jersey, could not be coached to produce a credible English accent. The series failed in the ratings opposite Lassie on CBS and ended its run after six months on the air. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Historical Drama Catalogs. The series consisted of 26 episodes, so I hope to find more. Stay tuned. I also added four episodes to the Dick Powell Theatre Library. Richard Ewing "Dick" Powell (November 14, 1904 – January 2, 1963) was an American singer, actor, film producer, film director and studio head. Though he came to stardom as a musical comedy performer, he showed versatility and successfully transformed into a hardbitten leading man starring in projects of a more dramatic nature. He was the first actor to portray the private detective Philip Marlowe on screen. The Dick Powell Theatre was an American anthology series that ran on NBC from 1961 to 1963, primarily sponsored by the Reynolds Metals Company. It was hosted by longtime film star Dick Powell until his death from lymphatic cancer on January 2, 1963, then by a series of guest hosts until the series ended. This library is located in the Television Drama Catalog. The added episodes are:

      Doyle Against the House
      Obituary for Mr. X
      The Losers
      The Rage of Silence

      4/6/17 - Today I added the thirteen available episodes of Season 5 to the Green Acres library. In Green Acres, a New York attorney and his wife try to live as genteel farmers in the bizarre community of Hooterville. Stars: Eddie Albert, Eva Gabor and Tom Lester. This library is available via the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. I still have some episodes from Season 6, so more to come.

      4/5/17 - Today I added thirteen episodes to the Adventures in Paradise library. Adventures in Paradise (1959–1962) was an American television series created by James Michener which ran on ABC. starring Gardner McKay as Adam Troy, the captain of the schooner Tiki III, which sailed the South Pacific looking for passengers and adventure. USA Network aired reruns of this series between 1984 and 1988. The plots deal with the romantic and detective adventures of Korean War veteran Troy. The supporting cast, varying from season to season, features George Tobias, Guy Stockwell, and Linda Lawson. This library is located in the Action and Adventure Catalog. The most of the added episodes were in the original library, which vanished soon after I created it, and they are:

      Through the Night
      Heads You Lose
      A Penny a Day
      Flamin' Lady
      Nightmare in the Sun
      Vendetta
      The Closing Circle
      The Assassins

      Blueprint for Paradise

      4/3/17 - Today I added eight episodes to the Hennesey Library. Hennesey was an American military sitcom/drama television series that aired on CBS from 1959 to 1962, starring Jackie Cooper. Cooper played Charles J. "Chick" Hennesey, a Navy doctor in an onshore office. Abby Dalton played his blonde yeoman/secretary/nurse. She had a crush on Hennesey but he maintained his professional dignity. Much of the series was about his gradually warming up to her interest until they were married in the final episode. Neither a drama nor a comedy, it was mostly a character study. Located in the Jackie Cooper Cataog which is located in the Comedy Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. The added episodes are:

      Harvey Spencer Blair III
      Shore Patrol
      The Baby Sitter
      Angel Face
      Hail to the Chief
      The Wedding
      Admiral and Son
      The Nogoodnik

      4/3/17 - Today I created a new Casey Jones library with the first twenty-one episodes of the series to start. Casey Jones (1957-1958) was an American Western series based around the pioneering western railroads. The series aired in syndication in the United States and was set in the late 19th century, featuring the adventures of railroad engineer Casey Jones and the crew of the Cannonball Express steam locomotive, fireman Wallie Sims and conductor Redrock Smith, working for the Midwest and Central Railroad. Stars: Alan Hale Jr., Bobby Clark, Eddy Waller. I have all but one episode of this thirty-two episode series bookmarked, so more to come. The new library is located in the Western Shows and the Action and Adventure Catalogs. I realized that the new library is the second show on the site that features Alan Hale, Jr., (along with Biff Baker, USA), so I created a new Alan Hale, Jr. Catalog to house both series' plus a new Alan Hale, Jr. Other Apearances library with eighteen episodes form various shows that featured Hale guest starring roles.

      4/2/17 - Tonight I restored my Hercule Poirot library with twenty-five to start. David Suchet starred as Poirot in the ITV series Agatha Christie's Poirot from 1989 until June 2013, when he announced that he was bidding farewell to the role. "No one could've guessed then that the series would span a quarter-century or that the classically trained Suchet would complete the entire catalogue of whodunits featuring the eccentric Belgian investigator, including 33 novels and dozens of short stories." His final appearance was in an adaptation of Curtain: Poirot's Last Case, aired on 13 November 2013. During the time that it was filmed, Suchet expressed his sadness at his final farewell to the Poirot character whom he had loved: "Poirot's death was the end of a long journey for me. I had only ever wanted to play Dame Agatha's true Poirot. He was as real to me as he had been to her: a great detective, a remarkable man, if, perhaps, just now and then, a little irritating. I think back to Poirot’s last words in the scene before he dies. That second ‘Cher ami’ was for someone other than Hastings. It was for my dear, dear friend Poirot. I was saying goodbye to him as well — and I felt it with all my heart. The restored library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog and the Agatha Christie Catalog, also available via the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      4/1/17 - Today I added fourteen episodes to the My Hero library. My Hero was an American television sitcom that aired on NBC on Saturday nights from November 8, 1952, to June 20, 1953, under the sponsorship of Dunhill cigarettes. It was also shown in Melbourne, Australia, on ABV-2 during 1956/1957. Robert Cummings starred as a well-meaning but bumbling real-estate agent, Robert Beanblossem, whoe's always getting into trouble with his boss and has to be constantly rescued by his secretary, who loves him. This library was first assembled in 2013, and this is the first time I've been able to add episodes too it since then! This library is located in the Comedy Shows Catalog and in the Robert Cummings Catalog, available via the Catalog of Stars. The added episodes are:

      Oil Land
      Lady Mortician
      Movie Star
      The Hillbilly
      The Cupid
      Horse Trail
      The Boat
      Africa Calling
      Sky High
      Top Secret
      Very South Pacific
      Beauty Queen
      Cinderella's Revenge
      Surprise Party

      3/30/17 - Today I restored The Ann Sothern Show Library with sixteen episodes to start. The Ann Sothern Show was an American sitcom starring Ann Sothern that aired on CBS for 93 episodes. The series began on October 6, 1958, and ended on September 25, 1961. The Ann Sothern Show was Sothern's second sitcom for CBS. Her first series, Private Secretary, ended in 1957 after a contract dispute occurred between Sothern and Secretary's producer Jack Chertok. Several of Private Secretary's cast members appeared in the show. Katy O'Connor (Sothern) is the assistant manager of the Bartley House, a swank New York City hotel. Katy's boss, Jason Macauley (Ernest Truex), was a timid, elderly man who was constantly bullied by his overbearing wife, Flora (Reta Shaw). Katy's secretary, roommate, and best friend Olive was played by Ann Tyrrell, who had also appeared in Sothern's first series, Private Secretary, in a similar role. Other characters included Johnny Wallace (Jack Mullaney), a bellboy who had a crush on Katy, and Paul Monteney (Jacques Scott), a suave, French room clerk. In an effort to improve the series' ratings, it was retooled midway through the first season. In the twenty fourth episode, "Katy's New Boss", Mr. Macauley is transferred to the Bartley House hotel in Calcutta, along with wife Flora. Don Porter, who had also appeared in Private Secretary as Sothern's character's boss, portrayed James Devery, Mr. Macauley's replacement. Mr. Devery was a younger, somewhat stubborn manager who tended to get carried away with some new, far-fetched idea. After Porter joined the cast, ratings for the series improved and it was renewed for a second season. In 1959, the series won a Golden Globe Award for Best TV Show. I have sixteen more episodes bookmarked, so more to come. This library is accessable via the Ann Sothern Catalog, which is located in the Whacky Dames Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      3/29/17 - Today I restored The Millionaire Library for the second time with twelve episodes. The Millionaire (1955-1960) was an American anthology series originally sponsored by Colgate-Palmolive. The series explored the ways sudden and unexpected wealth changed life for better or for worse and became a five-season hit during the Golden Age of Television. It told the stories of people who were given one million dollars from a benefactor who insisted they never know him, with one exception. The series was known in syndication by two titles — The Millionaire, and as If You Had a Million. I built the original library is February of 2015 from YouTube videos and it vanished almost a s soon as I got it up. A couple months later I restored it, only to see it vanish again. This time I managed to find 12 episodes on the Internet Archive, so I hopes that ot will last a while. The library is located in the Television Drama Catalog. I also added four episods to the Petticoat Junction library. Petticoat Junction was an American situation comedy that originally aired on CBS. The series takes place at the Shady Rest Hotel, which is run by Kate Bradley, her Uncle Joe Carson, and her three daughters Billie Jo, Bobbie Jo, and Betty Jo Bradley. The series is one of three interrelated shows about rural characters created by Paul Henning. Petticoat Junction was created upon the success of Henning's previous rural/urban-themed sitcom The Beverly Hillbillies (1962–1971). The success of Petticoat Junction led to a spin-off, Green Acres (1965–1971). This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas, Comedy Shows and the Whacky Dames Catalogs. The added episodes are:

      Dog Days At Shady Rest
      Cave Woman
      Kate Flat On Her Back
      The Genghis Keane Story

      3/28/17 - Today I added all twenty-four episodes of Season 4 to The Waltons library. I have most of the first 8 Seasons bookmarked so many more to come. The Waltons (1971–1981) is about the family of John Walton Jr. (known as John-Boy): his six siblings, his parents John and Olivia Walton, and the elder John's parents Zebulon "Zeb" and Esther Walton. John-Boy is the oldest of the children, who becomes a journalist and novelist. Created by Earl Hamner, Jr., based on his book Spencer's Mountain, and a 1963 film of the same name, the show is centered on a family in a rural Virginia community during the Great Depression and World War II. Each episode is narrated at the opening and closing by a middle-aged John-Boy (voiced by author Earl Hamner on whom John-Boy is based). John Sr. manages to eke out a living for his family by operating a lumber mill with his sons' help as they grow older. The family income is augmented by some small-scale farming, and John occasionally hunts to put meat on the table. Stars: Richard Thomas, Ralph Waite, Michael Learned, Ellen Corby and Will Geer. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

      3/27/17 - Today I created a new Mama's Family library, with nineteen episodes to start. 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. These videos are auto-play, they start playing as soon as you arrive at the page. I have the first four seasons (85 episodes) bookmarked, so many more to come!

      3/26/17 - Today I added twelve episodes to the The Lone Ranger library. The Lone Ranger was a TV show that starred Clayton Moore as the Lone Ranger and Jay Silverheels as Tonto. It was the ABC television network's first big hit of the early 1950s. Moore's tenure as the Ranger is probably the best-known treatment of the franchise. Moore was replaced in the third season by John Hart, but he returned for the final two seasons. The fifth and final season was the only one shot in color. A total of 221 episodes were made. Ths library is located in the Lone Ranger Catalog, which can be found in the Western Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. Because this library started out Hulu-based, and then Hulu decided to take down their collection, some of the episodes I added today are restored from the original library. The added episodes are:

      The Convict
      Man Who Came Back
      Outlaw Town
      Man of the House
      Gold Train
      Special Edition
      Through the Wall
      The Wooden Rifle
      The Counterfeit Mask
      No Handicap
      Cross of Santo Domingo
      White Hawk's Decision

      3/25/17 - Today I created a new Flipper library with thirty-one episodes to start. Flipper, from Ivan Tors Films, was an American television program broadcast on NBC from September 19, 1964, until April 15, 1967. Flipper, a bottlenose dolphin, is the companion animal of Porter Ricks, Chief Warden at fictional Coral Key Park and Marine Preserve in southern Florida, and his two young sons, Sandy and Bud. The show has been dubbed an "aquatic Lassie", and a considerable amount of children's merchandise inspired by the show was produced during its first run. The Miami Seaquarium set where Flipper was filmed also served as the set of another Ivan Tors production, Gentle Ben; the house where the Ricks family lived was the same house used for the Wedloe family on Gentle Ben. The new library is located in the Kid Shows and the Action and Adventure Catalogs.

      3/24/17 - Today I added all thirty-nine episodes of Season 2 to the Leave It to Beaver library. Leave It to Beaver was an American television situation comedy about an inquisitive and often naïve boy, Theodore "The Beaver" Cleaver (portrayed by Jerry Mathers), and his adventures at home, in school, and around his suburban neighborhood. The show also starred Barbara Billingsley and Hugh Beaumont as Beaver's parents, June and Ward Cleaver, and Tony Dow as Beaver's brother Wally. The show has attained an iconic status in the United States, with the Cleavers exemplifying the idealized suburban family of the mid-20th century. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added episodes are all of the ones in the Season 2 collection, beginning on the 2nd page of the library. I recently found a large cache of these shows, ao many more to come!

      3/23/17 - Today I added all thirty episodes to Season 5 of the Gomer Pyle USMC Library, which completes the library with all the episodes intact. Gomer Pyle was a television character played by Jim Nabors and introduced in the middle of the third season of The Andy Griffith Show. Pyle, was a simpleminded and gentle auto mechanic. Nabors played Pyle for 23 episodes from 1962 to 1964. After two seasons on The Andy Griffith Show, Griffith proposed a show based on the Gomer Pyle character. In 1964, the character was spun off into Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C. This library is located in the Comedy Shows Catalog.

      3/21/17 - Today I added twenty-two episodes to the Home Improvement Library. Home Improvement was an American television sitcom starring Tim Allen that aired on ABC from September 17, 1991, to May 25, 1999, with a total of 204 half-hour episodes spanning over eight seasons. The series was created by Matt Williams, Carmen Finestra and David McFadzean. In the 1990s it was one of the most watched sitcoms in the American market, winning many awards. The series launched Tim Allen's acting career and was the start of the television career of Pamela Anderson, who was part of the recurring cast for the first two seasons. I have almost the entire series (8 Seasons!) bookmarked, so more to come. The new library is located in the Comedy Shows, and the Family Drama and Comedies Catalogs. The added episodes are all of the ones on the 3rd library page.

      3/20/17 - Today I added twelve episodes to the Bonanza Library. This takes us too the end of Season 11. Bonanza was an NBC television western series that ran from 1959 to 1973. Lasting 14 seasons and 431 episodes, Bonanza is NBC's longest-running western, and ranks overall as the second-longest-running western series on U.S. network television (behind CBS' Gunsmoke), and within the top 10 longest-running, live-action American series. The show continues to air in syndication. The show is set around the 1860s and it centers on the wealthy Cartwright family, who live in the area of Virginia City, Nevada, bordering Lake Tahoe. The series stars Lorne Greene, Dan Blocker, Michael Landon, Pernell Roberts (who left after six seasons), and later David Canary and Mitch Vogel. I still have Season 13 to post - so more to come. This library is located in the Western Shows and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs. The added videos are all of the ones on the last page of the library.

      3/19/17 - Today I added ten episodes to Season 2 of the The Beverly Hillibillies Library. The Beverly Hillbillies was an American sitcom originally broadcast on CBS for nine seasons, from September 26, 1962, to March 23, 1971. The series starred Buddy Ebsen, Irene Ryan, Donna Douglas, and Max Baer, Jr. as a poor backwoods family who moved to Beverly Hills, California, after striking oil on their land. The show was produced by Filmways and was created by writer Paul Henning. It was followed by two other Henning-inspired country-cousin series on CBS: Petticoat Junction, and its spin-off Green Acres, which reversed the rags-to-riches model of The Beverly Hillbillies. The Beverly Hillbillies ranked among the top 20 most-watched programs on television for eight of its nine seasons, twice ranking as the number one series of the year, with a number of episodes that remain among the most-watched television episodes of all time. I recently discovered a large cache of these episodes so many more to come. This library is locate in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added episodes are:

      Granny's Garden
      Lafe Lingers On
      Race for Queen
      Lafe Returns
      Another Neighbor
      Great Crawdad Hunt
      The Dress Shop
      House of Granny
      Jed, Incorporated
      Granny Learns To Drive

      3/18/17 - Today I created a new Friday the 13th: The Series library with all twenty-six episodes of Season 1 to start. Friday the 13th (1987–1990) was an American-Canadian horror television series that ran for three seasons, from October 3, 1987 to May 26, 1990 in first-run syndication. The series follows Micki and Ryan, owners of an antiques store, and their friend, Jack Marshak, as they try to recover cursed antiques, to put them into safety in the store's vault. Originally, the series was to be titled The 13th Hour, but producer Frank Mancuso, Jr. thought this would turn away viewers and instead took the name Friday the 13th to deliberately draw in audiences. Despite this title, the series has no story connections to the film series of the same name, as Jason Voorhees does not make an appearance, nor does any character connected to the films. In the United Kingdom it was allegedly listed on TV schedules as Friday's Curse though when going to advertisement breaks on ITV it was titled Friday the 13th: The Series. These videos are all auto-play - they start as soon as you reach the page. I have the entire series bookmarked, so 2 more Seasons to come. The new library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog.

      3/17/17 - Today I added eighteen episodes to 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 stars Ozzie Nelson and his wife, singer Harriet Nelson (née Snyder, professionally), and their young sons, David and Eric "Ricky" Nelson. Don DeFore had a recurring role as the Nelsons' friendly neighbor "Thorny". On a side note, this was the very first episodic TV series library I created. Up until then I had been only loading Feature Films. With (now) 321 episodes, it is also one of the largest libraries on the site. A regular contributor too the Internet Archive has been putting these episodes up frequently over the past few months - so I expect there will be more too come. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added episodes, which are spread out throughout several Seasons, are:

      Hidden Trophy
      The Dean's Birthday
      Wally's TV Set
      Hayride
      Girl Across the Hall
      Old Printing Press
      Chess Set
      Rick Grows a Beard
      The Big Dog
      Kris' Girlfriend
      Tangled Web
      The Nelsons Revisited
      Wally, the Author
      The Little Helper
      Sheik of Araby
      An Honor for Oz
      Ozzie-a-Go-Go
      Rick's Assistant

      3/16/17 - Today I added the remaining fifteen episodes of Season 1 to the 12 O'Clock High library. 12 O'Clock High (1964-1967) was an American drama series set in World War II. This TV series was originally broadcast on ABC-TV and was based on the motion picture Twelve O'Clock High (1949). The series was a co-production of 20th Century Fox Television (Fox had also produced the movie) and QM Productions (one of their few non-law enforcement series). The series follows the missions of the fictitious 918th Bombardment Group (Heavy) of the U.S. Army Air Forces (USAAF), equipped with B-17 Flying Fortress heavy bombers, stationed at Archbury Field, England (a fictitious air base). For the first season, many of the characters from the book and 1949 movie were retained, including Brigadier General Frank Savage, Major Harvey Stovall, Major Cobb, Doc Kaiser, and General Pritchard, albeit played by different actors from in the motion picture. In addition to these characters, several other infrequently reappearing characters were introduced, including Captain (later Major) Joseph "Joe" Gallagher, who appeared in two episodes (episodes 1 and 24). At the end of the first season, the studio executives decided a younger-looking lead actor was needed. In the first episode of the second season, General Savage, played by Robert Lansing, was killed in action and replaced by Colonel Joe Gallagher, played by Paul Burke. (Burke, though considered more youthful-looking than Lansing, was actually two years older, a fact that TV critics were quick to point out.) The decision proved unpopular and the ratings began to drop. This library is located in the Action and Adventure Catalogs. The first Season was shot in black and white, while Seasons 2 and 3 were shot in color. I have the entire series (78 episodes) bookmarked so many more to come. The added episodes are all of the ones on the 2nd library page.

      3/15/17 - Today I added the remaining seventeen available episodes to the Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea Library. Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea (1964–1968) was a 1960s American science fiction television series based on the 1961 film of the same name. Both were created by Irwin Allen, which enabled the movie's sets, costumes, props, special effects models, and sometimes footage, to be used in the production of the television series. Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea was the first of Irwin Allen's four science fiction television series, as well as the longest-running. It tells the story of the futuristic nuclear submarine S.S.R.N. Seaview and the lead members of her crew, including the designer and builder of the submarine Admiral Harriman Nelson (Richard Basehart), and Commander Lee Crane (David Hedison). The Seaview is officially for undersea marine research and visits many exotic locations in the Seven Seas, but its secret mission is to defend the planet from all world and extraterrestrial threats in the then-future of the 1970s. This completes the library until I fnd more episodes. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure and the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalogs. The added episodes are:

      The Magnus Beam
      Left Handed Man
      The Peacemaker
      The X Factor
      Dinosaur Island
      The Phantom Strikes
      The Menfish
      Return of the Phantom
      Day the World Ended
      The Death Watch
      Deadly Invasion
      Brand of the Beast
      A Time to Die
      Return of Blackbeard
      Terrible Leprechaun
      Savage Jungle
      Flaming Ice

      3/14/17 - Today I created a new Iron Horse library with the twenty-three avalable episodes of Season 1 to start. Iron Horse (1966–1968) was an American Western television series that appeared on ABC and featured Dale Robertson as fictional gambler-turned-railroad baron Ben Calhoun. Costars included Gary Collins, Robert Random and Ellen Burstyn. The film's pilot was released as the film Scalplock. The plot centered on Calhoun's poker game-win of the incomplete Buffalo Pass, Scalplock, & Defiance Railroad and his wide-ranging attempts to finish the line despite obstacles that were ever-present. The new library is located in the Western Shows Catalog and in the new Dale Robertson Catalog, which also houses the Tales of Wells Fargo library and can be found in the Catalog of Stars. I have thirty-six of the forty-seven episodes that make up the complete series, so more to come.

      3/13/17 addendum - Good news on the Internet Explorer problem. Although I have not been able to fix the videos so that they will play correctly in IE, I did figure out a way to let people know about the problem, and to direct them too the PLAYLIST version of each affected series. In fact, it is the same solution I used when I discovered a few years ago that Hulu videos can't be viewed on the site using tablets, phones or other digital devices. In that case I created a graphic image to explain the problem. In this case, the new graphic explains the problem, then directs the viewer to click on the graphic in order to be taken to the PLAYLIST version. Therefore I have restored the problematic libraries with the graphic shown below on each library and player page.

      3/13/17 - Well, I have some unfortunate news to report. Thanks to an alert I received from my friend, Dennis Carter, I have discovered that several of the new libraries I posted in the past week are unable to be viewed using a Microsoft Explorer browser. Instead of playing the videos, Explorer shows you a white screen and asks if you want to download the video file. Since the vast majority of people use Explorer, I have decided to take those libraries down for the time being until (if, or when) I figure out a work-around.

      The good news is that all of these vides are still available on the site in the Playlists catalog - you simply open up the playlist page for each series and select the episode you want to watch from the list that appears under the viewing window.

      The problem libraries include:

      "M*A*S*H - you can watch the various Playlist episodes here.

      Leave it to Beaver - here. Sanford & Son - here. The Wild Wild West - here. Tales of the Darkside - here. There are lots of other Playlists available in the catalog, some, such as the Leave it to Beaver, Tales from the Darkside libraries and several others include ALL of the episodes from the complete series'. You can check out the entire Playlist Catalog here.

      3/12/17 - Late last night I restored my Hogan's Heroes library with all thirty-two episodes of Season 1 (thanks again to Daily Motion). Hogan's Heroes (1965-1971) was an American television sitcom set in a German prisoner of war (POW) camp during World War II. It ran on the CBS network. Bob Crane starred as Colonel Robert E. Hogan, co-ordinating an international crew of Allied prisoners running a Special Operations group from the camp. Werner Klemperer played Colonel Wilhelm Klink, the incompetent commandant of the camp, and John Banner was the inept sergeant-of-the-guard, Hans Schultz. This library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Comedy Shows Catalogs. This the third time I have restored the first Season, which is all I have ever had in the library. I now have most of the Season 2 episodes bookmarked and several more from Seasons 5 and 6, but I am going to hold off on posting any more of them to see if the Season 1 episodes presist, so stay tuned.

      3/10/17 - Today I created a new Biff Baker, U.S.A. library with the only six episodes I have found ths far. Biff Baker, U.S.A. (1952-1953) was an American crime drama television series that aired on CBS, starring a very young Alan Hale, Jr. as Cold War spy Biff Baker. Randy Stuart plays his wife, Louise, his partner in spying, usually behind the Iron Curtain. Hale was cast as Biff Baker twelve years before he began playing the role of "the Skipper" opposite Bob Denver in CBS's fantasy situation comedy, Gilligan's Island, and five years before he portrayed railroad engineer Casey Jones in the syndicated adventure series, Casey Jones. I also added Two Brothers, Open Season and The Director to the Public Defender library. The Public Defender (1954-1955) was a half-hour 69-episode television dramatic series starring Reed Hadley (1911-1974) as stoic but driven public defender Bart Matthews, whose clients cannot otherwise afford expensive legal representation. The concept of the public defender was little known in the United States except in capital cases. A 1932 United States Supreme Court decision Powell v. Alabama clarified the need for public defenders for suspects accused of crimes which if convicted might lead to execution. The use of public defenders was broadened in 1962 in another high court case, Gideon v. Wainwright to include public defenders for all suspects charged with any level of felony, a broadening of the Powell ruling. The Public Defender purportedly based each episode on true cases, and each segment closes with a tribute to a public defender. Both libraries are located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog. Biff Baker, U.S.A. is also available via the Action and Adventure Catalogs.

      3/7/17 - Today I added the last thirteen episodes to Season 3 of 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.

      3/5/17 - Today My friend, Stan Zeitlin, sent me a Facebook message asking if I had any Jack Benny Program episodes. The question surprised me because my Jack Benny Program library is one of, if not THE, oldest TV library on the site. I went over and checked in the Comedy Show Catalog and discovered that the link too the Jack Benny Program library was missing! I must of accidentally deleted it at some point in the past. Since I haven't done anything with the library in years, it could have been missing for a long time. Anyway, I did a search and managed to find six episodes that were not in the library, and posted them. The Jack Benny Program, starring Jack Benny, was a radio-TV comedy series that ran for more than three decades and is generally regarded as a high-water mark in 20th-century American comedy. Jack Benny made his TV debut in 1949 with a local appearance on Los Angeles station KTTV, then a CBS affiliate. In October 1950, he made his full network debut over CBS Television. Benny's television shows were occasional broadcasts in his early seasons on TV, as he was still firmly dedicated to radio. The regular and continuing Jack Benny Program was telecast on CBS from October 28, 1950, to September 15, 1964 (finally becoming a weekly show in the 1960-1961 season), and on NBC from September 25, 1964, to September 10, 1965. The library is located in the Jack Benny Catalog, which can be accessed via the afore-mentioned Comedy Show Catalog, and also in the Feature Films Catalog and in the Catalog of Stars. I might add that this show was one of my favorites growing up and I still find it very funny too watch. In fact, I intend to start watching them again. The added episodes are:

      The Bergen Show
      Jack Goes to Gym
      Main Street Shelter
      How Jack Met Rochester
      Jack Takes Violin Lessons
      Jack Loses a Raffle

      3/4/17 - Today I created a new Tales From the Darkside library with the twenty-one available episodes of Season 1. Tales From the Darkside (1983–1988) was an American anthology horror TV series created by George A. Romero; it debuted in 1983. Each episode was an individual short story that often ended with a plot twist. The series' episodes spanned the genres of horror, science fiction, and fantasy, and some episodes featured elements of black comedy or more lighthearted themes. These videos are auto-play. As soon as you arrive at the page they start playing. The success of Romero's horror anthology film Creepshow led to initial inquiries about the possibilities of a Creepshow series. Because Warner Brothers owned certain aspects of Creepshow, Laurel Entertainment, which produced the film, opted to take their potential series into a similar, yet separate, direction, including changing the name to Tales from the Darkside. The new name reflected Creepshow's focus, that of a live-action EC-based horror comic book of the 1950s like Tales from the Crypt or The Vault of Horror. The new library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog.

      3/3/17 - Today, for the first time since June, 2013, I added episodes (nine of them) to the Burns and Allen library, which is one of the oldest libraries on the site. 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. In 1950, Burns and Allen transitioned to television with The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show. An immediate success, the half-hour situation comedy was broadcast on CBS. The show was initially staged live in New York and presented every other week. In the fall of 1952 it became a weekly series filmed on the West Coast. With 291 episodes, the show had a long network run through 1958 and continued in syndicated reruns for years. This library is located in the Comedy Shows, Whacky Dames, Family Drama and Comedies Catalogs. The added episodes are:

      Gracie the Artist
      Mamie Kelly Gets Stuck
      Psychiatrist
      Divorce Attorney
      Dual Meanings
      Redecorate
      Choosing Movie
      Friar's Club Dinner
      Too Much Pot Roast

      3/2/17 - Today I added sixteen episodes to the The Lone Ranger library. The Lone Ranger was a TV show that starred Clayton Moore as the Lone Ranger and Jay Silverheels as Tonto. It was the ABC television network's first big hit of the early 1950s. Moore's tenure as the Ranger is probably the best-known treatment of the franchise. Moore was replaced in the third season by John Hart, but he returned for the final two seasons. The fifth and final season was the only one shot in color. A total of 221 episodes were made. Ths library is located in the Lone Ranger Catalog, which can be found in the Western Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. The added episodes are:

      Bounty Hunter
      Sand Creek
      Heart of a Cheater
      The Swami
      Sheriff's Sale
      Six-Gun Artist
      Death Goes to Press
      Return of Dice Dawson
      Adventure at Arbuckle
      The Return
      Framed for Murder
      The Bait: Gold!
      The Sheriff's Wife
      Counterfeit Redskins
      One Nation, Indivisible
      Angel and the Outlaw

      3/1/17 - Today I created a Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour library, with eight episodes, plus a Cast Reunion Show from 1983 and a Documentary about the show from 2002. The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour (1967-1969) was an American comedy and variety show television series hosted by the Smothers Brothers. The series was a major success, especially considering it was scheduled against the major NBC television series, Bonanza, with content that appealed to contemporary youth viewership with daring political satire humor and major music acts like Buffalo Springfield, Pete Seeger and The Who. Despite this success, continual conflicts with network executives over content led to the show being abruptly pulled from the schedule in violation of the Smothers' contract in 1969. The new library is located in the Comedy Shows, Musical Shows and Variety Shows Catalogs.

      2/28/17 - Today I added fifteen episodes to the Muppet Show library. The Muppet Show is a family-oriented comedy-variety television series that was produced by puppeteer Jim Henson and featured The Muppets. After two pilot episodes produced in 1974 and 1975 failed to get the attention of network executives in the United States, Lew Grade approached Henson to produce the program in the United Kingdom for ATV, the (then) ITV franchise in the English Midlands. The series showed a vaudeville or music hall-style song-and-dance variety show, as well as glimpses behind the scenes of such a show. Kermit the Frog starred as a MC who tried to keep control of the antics of the other Muppet characters (and his temper), as well as keep the guest stars happy. The show was known for outrageous physical slapstick, sometimes absurdist comedy, and humorous parodies. Each episode also featured a human guest star. As the show's popularity rose, many celebrities were eager to perform with the Muppets on television and in film. The Muppet Show Library is located in the Muppets Catalog which can be found in the Kid Shows, Musical Shows, Variety Shows and Comedy Shows Catalogs. This is the first time since January of 2015 that I have added episodes too this library. I seemed to have forgotten about it - I created the YouTube playlists that make up the episodes that year, and they are all still intact, so I expect this library to last a while. The added episodes are all of the ones on the second library page.

      2/27/17 - Today I added all twenty-four episodes of Season 3 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 have all but 3 of the episodes of this 11 Season series bookmarked, so many. many more to come!

      2/26/17 - Today I created a new Ivanhoe Library with eleven episodes to start. Since the star of this show was Roger Moore, I decided to create a new Roger Moore Catalog to hold this library plus The Saint Library, also starring Moore, and a new Roger Moore Film Library with fourteen of his Feature Films. Sir Roger George Moore KBE (born 14 October 1927) is an English actor. He was first known for playing the eponymous hero, Sir Wilfred of Ivanhoe, in the 1958–59 series Ivanhoe, a loose adaptation of the 1819 romantic novel by Sir Walter Scott set in the 12th century during the era of Richard the Lionheart. Later he was Besu Maverick in the Maverick (1957–1962) series. Worldwide fame arrived after Moore was cast as Simon Templar in a new adaptation of The Saint, based on the novels by Leslie Charteris. Moore said in an interview in 1963, that he wanted to buy the rights to Leslie Charteris's character and the trademarks. He also joked that the role was supposed to have been meant for Sean Connery who was unavailable. He also portrayed British secret agent James Bond in seven feature films between 1973 and 1985. The Ivanhoe Library is available in the Roger Moore Catalog and the Historical Drama Catalog. The Roger Moore Catalog is located in the Feature Films Catalog and in the Catalog of Stars.

      2/25/17 - Today I decided to add two new libraries to the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog. I had held off from posting them earlier because I hoped to find more episodes for each of them, but it has been a year now and I am coming up empty, so I went ahead and created a new San Francisco Beat Library with ten episodes to start. The Lineup (1954-1960) was an American police drama which aired CBS television for 6 Seasons. Syndicated reruns of the series were broadcast under the title San Francisco Beat. The series depicted the investigations of Lieutenant Ben Guthrie, played by Warner Anderson, and Sergeant Matt Greb played by Tom Tully. Based on actual cases from the San Francisco Police files, Lt. Guthrie and Inspector Grebb work as a team to track down criminals. In the last season Inspectors Delaney and Summers are partners in the pursuit of justice. Frequently a police lineup is featured. I also created a new For The People Library with six episodes. For the People was an American legal drama that aired from January 31 until May 9, 1965. In his first series starring role, William Shatner played David Koster, an obsessive New York City assistant district attorney who gets into trouble because of his passion for justice. His boss, Anthony Celese, tries to keep him under control while New York police detective Frank Malloy helps him solve cases. Koster's wife Jessica is a viola player in a string quartet and her own life's priorities come into conflict with David's. The series ran for one season (13 episodes) - these 6 are the only ones I have found thus far.

      2/24/17 - Today I added twenty-two episodes to the Home Improvement Library. Home Improvement was an American television sitcom starring Tim Allen that aired on ABC from September 17, 1991, to May 25, 1999, with a total of 204 half-hour episodes spanning over eight seasons. The series was created by Matt Williams, Carmen Finestra and David McFadzean. In the 1990s it was one of the most watched sitcoms in the American market, winning many awards. The series launched Tim Allen's acting career and was the start of the television career of Pamela Anderson, who was part of the recurring cast for the first two seasons. I have almost the entire series (8 Seasons!) bookmarked, so more to come. The new library is located in the Comedy Shows, and the Family Drama and Comedies Catalogs. The added episodes are all of the ones on the second library page.

      2/23/17 - Today I added the fifteen remaining episodes to the The Last of the Mohicans. This completes the library with all 39 episodes accounted for. The Last of the Mohicans (later retitled Hawkeye and the Last of the Mohicans) is a 1957 Western television series made for syndication by ITC Entertainment and Normandie Productions. Loosely based on the 1826 novel The Last of the Mohicans by James Fenimore Cooper, the series starred John Hart and Lon Chaney, Jr. This library is located in the Western Shows, the Historical Drama, and the Action and Adventure Catalogs. The added episodes are:

      Huron Tomahawk
      Tolliver Gang
      The Colonel
      Winter Passage
      The Reckoning
      La Salle's Treasure
      The Prisoner
      TheSoldier
      The Morristown Story
      Revenge
      The Royal Grant
      The Long Rifles
      The Printer
      Indian Doll
      Circle of Hate

      2/22/17 - Today I added seventeen episodes to the The Doris Day Show library. Ths takes us to Episode 11 of Season 5. Doris Day (born Doris Mary Ann Kappelhoff; April 3, 1922 or 1924) is an American actress, singer, and animal rights activist. Day began her career as a big band singer in 1939. Her popularity began to rise after her first hit recording "Sentimental Journey", in 1945. After leaving Les Brown & His Band of Renown to embark on a solo career, Day started her long-lasting partnership with Columbia Records, which remained her only recording label. Over the course of her career, Day appeared in 39 films. She was ranked the biggest box-office star, the only woman appearing on that list in the era, for four years (1960, 1962, 1963 and 1964), ranking in the top 10 for ten years (1951–1952 and 1959–1966). All of this is located in the Doris Day Catalog, which is located in the Feature Films Catalog and in the Catalog of Stars. The Doris Day Show can also be found in the Whacky Dames an the Family Comedies & Drama Catalogs. Thirteen episodes to go in order to complete the library.

      2/21/17 - Today I added nineteen episodes to the Bonanza Library. This takes us too the middle of Season 11. Bonanza was an NBC television western series that ran from 1959 to 1973. Lasting 14 seasons and 431 episodes, Bonanza is NBC's longest-running western, and ranks overall as the second-longest-running western series on U.S. network television (behind CBS' Gunsmoke), and within the top 10 longest-running, live-action American series. The show continues to air in syndication. The show is set around the 1860s and it centers on the wealthy Cartwright family, who live in the area of Virginia City, Nevada, bordering Lake Tahoe. The series stars Lorne Greene, Dan Blocker, Michael Landon, Pernell Roberts (who left after six seasons), and later David Canary and Mitch Vogel. I still have more of Seasons 11 and 13 - so lots more to come. This library is located in the Western Shows and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs. The added videos are all of the Season 10 and 11 episodes in the library.

      2/20/17 - Late last night I finished a new project. With the Oscars Ceremony set to be broadcast this coming Sunday, I decided to look around and see if I could find any of the previous Oscar programs and was surprised to find a cache of YouTube playlists covering every recorded edition of the show since 1948! The Academy Awards, or "The Oscars", is an annual American awards ceremony hosted by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to recognize excellence in cinematic achievements in the film industry as voted on by the Academy's membership. The various category winners are awarded a statuette, officially called the Academy Award of Merit, which has become commonly known by its nickname "Oscar." The awards were first presented in 1929 at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. As I mentioned, the new library includes highlights from all of the televised Oscar Ceremonies since 1948. I will admit that I struggled a little with where to put this library, and finally settled on the News/Documentary (Reality) Programs Catalog.

      2/19/17 - Today I added thirteen episodes to 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 stars Ozzie Nelson and his wife, singer Harriet Nelson (née Snyder, professionally), and their young sons, David and Eric "Ricky" Nelson. Don DeFore had a recurring role as the Nelsons' friendly neighbor "Thorny". On a side note, this was the very first episodic TV series library I created. Up until then I had been only loading Feature Films. With (now) 303 episodes, it is also one of the largest libraries on the site. A regular contributor too the Internet Archive has been putting these episodes up frequently over the past few months - so I expect there will be more too come. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added episodes, which are spread out throughout several Seasons, are:

      Basketball Players
      Safe Crackers
      Brother Beesley's Philosophy
      Whistler's Daughter
      Who's Walter
      Harriet Gives a Party
      Ricky's Lost Letter
      Homemade Ice-Cream
      Hawaiian Party
      Picture in Rick's Notebook
      Who Is Betty?
      Top Gun
      Rick's Chemistry Grade

      2/18/17 - Today I created a new Family Ties library with the twenty-one available episodes of Season 1 to start. Family Ties (1982-1989) was an American sitcom that aired on NBC. The series reflected the move in the United States from the cultural liberalism of the 1960s and 1970s to the conservatism of the 1980s. This was particularly expressed through the relationship between young Republican Alex P. Keaton (portrayed by Michael J. Fox) and his ex-hippie parents, Steven and Elyse Keaton (portrayed by Michael Gross and Meredith Baxter). The show won multiple awards, including three consecutive Emmy Awards for Michael J. Fox as Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series. Set in suburban Columbus, Ohio, during the Reagan administration, Steven and Elyse Keaton are baby boomers, liberals and former hippies, raising their three children: ambitious, would-be millionaire entrepreneur Alex; fashion-conscious, gossipy Mallory (Justine Bateman); and tomboy Jennifer (Tina Yothers). Married in 1964, Elyse is an independent architect and Steven, a native of Buffalo, New York, is the station manager of WKS, a local public television station. The new library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas catalog. I have most of the episodes for the first 3 Seasons bookmarked - so more to come!

      2/17/17 - Late last night I added Season 3 (thirty-six episodes) to the Father Knows Best library. Father Knows Best is an American sitcom starring Robert Young, Jane Wyatt, Elinor Donahue, Billy Gray, and Lauren Chapin. The series, which first began on radio in 1949, aired for six seasons with a total of 203 episodes. The series debuted on CBS in October 1954. It ran for one season and was canceled the following year. NBC picked up the series where it remained for three seasons. After a second cancellation in 1958, CBS picked up the series yet again where it aired until May 1960. The popular radio show came to life in this hit sitcom about a wise family man, Jim Anderson, played by Robert Young, his common-sense wife Margaret and their children Betty, Bud and Kathy. Whenever the kids need advice on anything at all, they can always turn to their father, because father knows best. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas catalog. The entire series is available on Hulu, so many more to come.

      2/16/17 - Today I didn't have a lot of time to work on the site, but I did notice that some of my Liberace Show library had disappeared at some point. I was able to restore all eleven of the episodes in the original library. Wladziu Valentino Liberace (May 16, 1919 – February 4, 1987), best known simply as Liberace, was a famous American pianist and vocalist. His fifteen-minute network television program, The Liberace Show, began on July 1, 1952, but did not lead to a network series. Instead producers mounted a filmed version of Liberace's local show performed before a live audience for syndication in 1953, and sold it to scores of local stations. The widespread exposure of the syndicated series made the pianist more popular and prosperous than ever. I remember watching the show when I was very young (from 4 to 8 years old) and it was one of the influences that made me decide to devote my life to being a musician. While I was at it I also updated several of the plot summaries from various onine databases that I didn;t know about when I created the original library back in 2010. The restored library is located in both the Musical Shows and the Variety Shows Catalogs, and in the Liberace Catalog, located in the Catalog of Stars.

      2/15/17 - Today I created a new 12 O'Clock High library with seventeen episodes to start. 12 O'Clock High (1964-1967) was an American drama series set in World War II. This TV series was originally broadcast on ABC-TV and was based on the motion picture Twelve O'Clock High (1949). The series was a co-production of 20th Century Fox Television (Fox had also produced the movie) and QM Productions (one of their few non-law enforcement series). The series follows the missions of the fictitious 918th Bombardment Group (Heavy) of the U.S. Army Air Forces (USAAF), equipped with B-17 Flying Fortress heavy bombers, stationed at Archbury Field, England (a fictitious air base). For the first season, many of the characters from the book and 1949 movie were retained, including Brigadier General Frank Savage, Major Harvey Stovall, Major Cobb, Doc Kaiser, and General Pritchard, albeit played by different actors from in the motion picture. In addition to these characters, several other infrequently reappearing characters were introduced, including Captain (later Major) Joseph "Joe" Gallagher, who appeared in two episodes (episodes 1 and 24). At the end of the first season, the studio executives decided a younger-looking lead actor was needed. In the first episode of the second season, General Savage, played by Robert Lansing, was killed in action and replaced by Colonel Joe Gallagher, played by Paul Burke. (Burke, though considered more youthful-looking than Lansing, was actually two years older, a fact that TV critics were quick to point out.) The decision proved unpopular and the ratings began to drop. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure Catalogs. The first Season was shot in black and white, while Seasons 2 and 3 were shot in color. I have the entire series (78 episodes) bookmarked so many more to come.

      2/14/17 - Today I planned to add Season 3 to the Lost in Space library to complete the library. However, I discovered that Hulu has taken down their collection of Lost on Space episodes! So I looked for episodes on Daily Motion and found all thirty of the Season 1 episodes, twenty-four of the 30 episodes of Season 2, and eighteen of the 24 episodes of Season 3. Lost in Space was an American science fiction television series, following the adventures of a family of pioneering space colonists whose ship goes off course. It was created and produced by Irwin Allen, filmed by 20th Century Fox Television, and broadcast on CBS. Starring Guy Williams, June Lockhart, Jonathan Harris, Mark Goddard, Billy Mumy and Angela Cartwright, the show ran for three seasons, with 83 episodes airing between 1965 to 1968. The first television season was filmed in black and white, with the second and third seasons filmed in color. The restored library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog and also in the new Guy Williams Catalog, which I built to house this series and Williams' earlier hit series, Disney's Adventures of Zorro.

      2/13/17 - Today I added all thirty-two episodes of Season 5 of the The Dick Van Dyke Show library. This completes the library with all the episodes intact. The Dick Van Dyke Show was an American television sitcom that initially aired on CBS from October 3, 1961 to June 1, 1966, with a total of 158 half-hour episodes spanning over five seasons. The show was created by Carl Reiner and starred Dick Van Dyke, Rose Marie, Morey Amsterdam, Larry Mathews, and Mary Tyler Moore. It centered on the work and home life of television comedy writer Rob Petrie (Van Dyke). The show was produced by Reiner with Bill Persky and Sam Denoff. The series won 15 Emmy Awards. In 2002, it was ranked at 13 on TV Guide's 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time and in 2013, it was ranked at 20 on their list of the 60 Best Series'. This library is available in the Family Comedies & Drama and Comedy Shows Catalogs, and can also be accessed via the Mary Tyler Moore Catalog. These episodes are from Hulu (sorry about the commercials).

      2/12/17 - Today I added all twenty-two episodes to Season 2 of the Cheers library. Cheers (1982-1993) was an American sitcom that ran for eleven seasons between 1982 and 1993. The show was produced in association with Paramount Network Television for NBC. The series is set in a bar named Cheers in Boston, Massachusetts, where a group of locals meet to drink, relax, and socialize. The show's main theme song, written and performed by Gary Portnoy lent its famous refrain "Where Everybody Knows Your Name" as the show's tagline. After premiering on September 30, 1982, it was nearly canceled during its first season when it ranked almost last in ratings for its premiere (74th out of 77 shows). Cheers, however, eventually became a highly rated television show in the United States, earning a top-ten rating during eight of its eleven seasons, including one season at number one. The show spent most of its run on NBC's Thursday night "Must See TV" lineup. Its widely watched series finale was broadcast on May 20, 1993, and the show's 274 episodes have been successfully syndicated worldwide. Nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series for all eleven of its seasons on the air, it earned 28 Primetime Emmy Awards from a record of 117 nominations. The character Frasier Crane (Kelsey Grammer) was featured in his eponymous spin-off show, which aired until 2004 and included guest appearances by virtually all of the major and minor Cheers characters. Because of the scope of this show's impact, the new library is located in the Comedy Shows Catalog, and also the Family Comedies and Dramas and the Whacky Dames Catalogs. I have all 11 Seasons of the complete series bookmarked, so many more to come!

      2/11/17 - Today I added eleven episodes to the Leave It to Beaver library Leave It to Beaver was an American television situation comedy about an inquisitive and often naïve boy, Theodore "The Beaver" Cleaver (portrayed by Jerry Mathers), and his adventures at home, in school, and around his suburban neighborhood. The show also starred Barbara Billingsley and Hugh Beaumont as Beaver's parents, June and Ward Cleaver, and Tony Dow as Beaver's brother Wally. The show has attained an iconic status in the United States, with the Cleavers exemplifying the idealized suburban family of the mid-20th century. My original library only had 3 episodes from YouTube, and they vanished almost as soon as I put them up. I hadn't thought about the series in a long time and then someone asked me about it a while, so I decided to look around and found some episodes from the last three seasons (Seasons 4, 5 and 6). I hope to find more but they are hard to come by. I will keep my eyes peeled. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added are:

      Beaver's Laundry
      The Younger Brother
      Beaver's Typewriter
      The Yard Birds
      Stocks and Bonds
      The Mustache
      More Blessed to Give
      Uncle Billy's Visit
      Beaver's Prep School
      Eddie's Sweater
      The Poor Loser

      2/10/17 - Today I added all fourteen episodes of Season 3 to the The Greatest American Hero library which completes the library with all of the episodes intact. The Greatest American Hero (1981–1983) was an American comedy-drama television series that aired on ABC. The series features teacher Ralph Hinkley and chronicles Ralph's adventures after a group of aliens gives him a red suit that grants him superhuman abilities. Unfortunately for Ralph, he immediately loses its instruction booklet, and thus has to learn how to use its powers by trial and error, often with comical results. Stars: William Katt, Connie Sellecca, as Ralph's lawyer girlfriend and Robert Culp as FBI Agent Bill Maxwell. This posting includes the last episode, which appeared in syndication, but not in the original run of the series. In 1986, the original principal cast reunited for a pilot movie for a new NBC series to be named The Greatest American Heroine, which did not result in a new series, and the pilot was never broadcast by NBC. Ultimately, the pilot was re-edited as an episode of the original series (complete with original opening credits and theme), and added to syndication sets of the original series, for which it is the final episode. Immediately after the beginning credits, the episode's title card is superimposed over a nighttime view of the Los Angeles skyline, reading "The Greatest American Hero" before appending the letters "i n e" individually to the sound of the NBC chimes. The chimes were a nod to NBC and its president, Brandon Tartikoff, who'd expressed interest in reviving the series. This library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror and Action and Adventure Catalogs.

      2/9/17 - Today I added one episode to the Bat Masterson Library, which only had 2 episodes previously, and then decided to create a Burke's Law Library, which, like Bat Masterson, also starred Gene Barry, with seven episodes to start. This prompted me to create a Gene Barry Catalog to house both libraries. Gene Barry (June 14, 1919 – December 9, 2009) was an American stage, screen, and television actor. Barry is best remembered for his leading roles in the films The Atomic City (1952) and The War of The Worlds (1953) and for his portrayal of the title characters in the TV series Bat Masterson and Burke's Law, among many roles. Bat Masterson, a fictionalized recounting of the life of the real-life U.S. Marshal, gambler, and gunman was broadcast by NBC-TV from 1958 to 1961. In his next TV series, Burke's Law, Barry played a millionaire homicide investigator who was chauffeured in his limousine as he solved crimes. This series was broadcast on ABC-TV from September 20, 1963, to May 5, 1965. For his performance in it, Barry won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in 1965. In 1966, the final year of the series, the title of the show changed to Amos Burke, Secret Agent. In 1993 the "Burke's Law" series returned to television for one year. Barry again acted in the title role To avoid confusion, I have chosen to present Amos Burke, Secret Agent (with eight episodes) as a separate series', while both iterations of Burke's Law are in the same library. The two libraries are cross-linked to preserve their continuity. Bat Masterson is located in the Western Shows Catalog. Burke's Law and Amos Burke: Secret Agent are both accessed via the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog. The Gene Barry Catalog is located in the Catalog of Stars. The added episode in the Bat Masterson Library is the first one in the listing.

      2/7/17 - Today I added seven episodes to the The Andy Griffith Show Library. 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. This library is located in the Comedy Shows Catalog and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added episodes are:

      The House Guest
      Andy's Rival
      Warning from Warren
      Baby in the House
      Barney Comes To Mayberry
      The Authoress
      Opie's First Love

      2/6/17 - Today I decided to post episodes in two of my Western Shows libraries, so I added six episodes to the Roy Rogers Show library. The Roy Rogers Show (1951-1957) was an American Western television series that broadcast 100 episodes on NBC. The show starred Roy Rogers as a ranch owner, Dale Evans as the proprietress of the Eureka Cafe in fictional Mineral City, and Pat Brady as Roy’s sidekick and Dale's cook. Brady's jeep Nellybelle had a mind of her own and often sped away driverless with Brady in frantic pursuit on foot. The Jeep was first called LuLubelle in the 1952 series. Animal stars were Roy's Palomino horse, Trigger, and his German Shepherd wonder dog, Bullet. The added episodes are:

      Unwilling Outlaw
      Dead Men's Hills
      Backfire
      Strangers
      Money Is Dangerous
      Horse Crazy

      I also added ten episodes to the The Lone Ranger library. The Lone Ranger was a TV show that starred Clayton Moore as the Lone Ranger and Jay Silverheels as Tonto. It was the ABC television network's first big hit of the early 1950s. Moore's tenure as the Ranger is probably the best-known treatment of the franchise. Moore was replaced in the third season by John Hart, but he returned for the final two seasons. The fifth and final season was the only one shot in color. A total of 221 episodes were made. Ths library is located in the Lone Ranger Catalog, which can be found in the Western Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. The added episodes are all from the 4th Season:

      The Law Lady
      Uncle Ed
      Jornada Del Muerto
      Sunstroke Mesa
      Sawtelle Saga's End

      False Accusations
      Gold Freight
      Wanted

      2/5/17 - Late last night I created a new Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea Library with twenty-six episodes to start. Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea (1964–1968) was a 1960s American science fiction television series based on the 1961 film of the same name. Both were created by Irwin Allen, which enabled the movie's sets, costumes, props, special effects models, and sometimes footage, to be used in the production of the television series. Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea was the first of Irwin Allen's four science fiction television series, as well as the longest-running. It tells the story of the futuristic nuclear submarine S.S.R.N. Seaview and the lead members of her crew, including the designer and builder of the submarine Admiral Harriman Nelson (Richard Basehart), and Commander Lee Crane (David Hedison). The Seaview is officially for undersea marine research and visits many exotic locations in the Seven Seas, but its secret mission is to defend the planet from all world and extraterrestrial threats in the then-future of the 1970s. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure and the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalogs.

      2/4/17 - Today I added the eleven available episodes of Season 3 (from Hulu) of the Taxi Library. Taxi was an American sitcom that originally aired from 1978 to 1982 on ABC and from 1982 to 1983 on NBC. The series—which won 18 Emmy Awards, including three for Outstanding Comedy Series—focuses on the everyday lives of a handful of New York City taxi drivers and their abusive dispatcher. The show focuses on the employees of the fictional Sunshine Cab Company, and its principal setting is the company's fleet garage in Manhattan. Among the drivers, only Alex Rieger, who is disillusioned with life, considers cab driving his profession. The others view it as a temporary job. Elaine Nardo is a single mother working as a receptionist at an art gallery. Tony Banta is a boxer with a losing record. Bobby Wheeler is a struggling actor. All take pity on "Reverend Jim" Ignatowski, an aging hippie minister, who is burnt out from drugs, so they help him become a cabbie. The characters also included Latka Gravas, their innocent, wide-eyed mechanic from an unnamed foreign country, and Louie De Palma, the despotic dispatcher. There are 75 episodes available on Hulu (114 in the complete series) so many more to come. The new library is located in the Comedy Shows Catalog.

      2/3/17 - Today I added the first seventeen episodes of Season 3 too 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. I have the rest of Season 3 bookmarked so more to come. This library is located in the Action and Adventure and Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

      2/2/17 - Today I posted the nine available episodes of Season 2 of The Munsters Library. Unfortunately, I discovered that about a dozen of the episodes I posted a few weeks ago, and also about 10 of the ones I had bookmarked, have disappeared. The Munsters (1964–1966) was an American sitcom depicting the home life of a family of benign monsters starring Fred Gwynne as Herman Munster and Yvonne De Carlo as his wife, Lily Munster. The series was a satire of both traditional monster movies and the wholesome family fare of the era, and was produced by the creators of Leave It to Beaver. It ran concurrently with the similarly macabre themed The Addams Family and achieved higher figures in the Nielsen ratings. The new library is located in the Comedy Shows, Whacky Dames, Family Drama and Comedies and the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalogs. It is also located in the new Fred Gwynne Catalog, which can be found in the Catalog of Stars. I'm not sure how long these are going to last so watch them while you can.

      2/1/17 - Today I added the first fifteen episodes to Season 2 of the Ironside library. Ironside (1967-1975) was an American television crime drama that aired on NBC over 8 seasons from 1967 to 1975. The show starred Raymond Burr as Robert T Ironside, a consultant for the San Francisco police (usually addressed by the title Chief Ironside), who was paralyzed from the waist down after being shot in the line of duty. The character debuted on March 28, 1967, in a TV movie entitled "A Man Called Ironside". When the series was broadcast in the United Kingdom, in the 1970s, it was broadcast under that title. The show earned Burr six Emmy and two Golden Globe nominations. Ironside was a production of Burr's Harbour Productions Unlimited in association with Universal Television. These episodes are all from Hulu (sorry about the commercials) and I have one more season bookmarked, so more to come. The new library is located in the Television Drama and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs, and also in the Raymond Burr Catalog, which is available via the Catalog of Stars.

      1/31/17 - Today I added seventeenteen more episodes to 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 stars Ozzie Nelson and his wife, singer Harriet Nelson (née Snyder, professionally), and their young sons, David and Eric "Ricky" Nelson. Don DeFore had a recurring role as the Nelsons' friendly neighbor "Thorny". On a side note, this was the very first episodic TV series library I created. Up until then I had been only loading Feature Films. With (now) 290 episodes, it is also one of the largest libraries on the site. A regular contributor too the Internet Archive has been putting these episodes up frequently over the past few months - so I expect there will be more too come. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added episodes, which are spread out throughout several Seasons, are:

      Ricky the Drummer
      Weekend Vacaton
      David Gets a Raise
      The Sidewalk
      The Great Outdoors
      The Swami
      With the Boys
      Wedding Picture
      The Uniforms
      Rick, the Law Clerk
      Study System
      The Mountain
      Fraternity Advisor
      Early Rush Party
      Flying Down to Lunch
      Dave, the Worrier
      Wally's Traffic Ticket

      1/30/17 - Today I added twelve episodes to the The Last of the Mohicans. This doubles the size of the library. The Last of the Mohicans (later retitled Hawkeye and the Last of the Mohicans) is a 1957 Western television series made for syndication by ITC Entertainment and Normandie Productions. Loosely based on the 1826 novel The Last of the Mohicans by James Fenimore Cooper, the series starred John Hart and Lon Chaney, Jr. I now have all 39 episodes of this series bookmarked so more to come. This library is located in the Western Shows, the Historical Drama, and the Action and Adventure Catalogs. The added episodes are:

      The Franklin Story
      The Wild One
      Deleware Hoax
      The Coward
      Ethan Allen Story
      The Witch
      The Servant
      Powder Keg
      The Brute
      Stubborn Pioneer
      The Girl
      The Soldier
      Huron Tomahawk

      1/29/17 - Today created a new Laredo Library with thirteen episodes to start, including the pilot, which was an episode of The Virginian. 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. The new library is located in the Western Shows Catalog.

      1/28/17 - Another iconic American actress, Barbara Hale, passed away yesterday. She was best known for her role as Perry Mason's secretary, Della Street. So I decided to create a Barbara Hale Catalog including a libraries of her Feature Films (6 so far), Other TV Appearances (5 so far) and, of course, the Perry Mason series. Barbara Hale (April 18, 1922 – January 26, 2017) was an American actress best known for her role as legal secretary Della Street on more than 270 episodes of the long-running Perry Mason television series. She reprised the role in 30 Perry Mason movies for television. Hale moved to Hollywood in 1943, and made her first screen appearances playing small parts (often uncredited). Her first role was in Gildersleeve's Bad Day. She was under contract to RKO Radio Pictures through the late 1940s. She appeared in Higher and Higher (1943) with Frank Sinatra and sang with the crooner; played leading lady to Robert Mitchum in West of the Pecos (1945); enjoyed top billing in both Lady Luck (1946) opposite Robert Young, her first "full stardom" and "her fifth A picture", and The Window (1949) with Arthur Kennedy, and co-starred in Jolson Sings Again (1949), with Larry Parks playing Al Jolson and Hale as Jolson's wife, Ellen Clark. She played the top-billed title role in Lorna Doone (1951), co-starred with James Stewart in The Jackpot (1951), with James Cagney in a 1953 drama, A Lion Is in the Streets, and opposite Rock Hudson in 1953's Seminole. She then appeared in 1955's The Far Horizons with Fred MacMurray and Charlton Heston, also working with some of Hollywood's best-known leading men of the day. The new catalog is located in the Feature Films Catalog and in the Catalog of Stars.

      1/27/2017 - More sad news, I learned this morning of the passing of Mike Connors, who starred in the Mannix detective series, so I decided to see if I could find more episodes for my libary. I was fortunate to find fourteen from the first season of the series. Until now, I only had 2 episodes of Season 1, and most of Season 2, so this greatly expands the library. Mike Connors (born Krekor Ohanian; August 15, 1925 – January 26, 2017) was an American actor best known for playing detective Joe Mannix in the CBS television series, Mannix. Connors' acting career spanned six decades; in addition to his work on television, he appeared in numerous films. His film career started in the early 1950s. Connors was cast in the critically acclaimed John Wayne film, Island in the Sky in which he was a crewman on one of the search-and-rescue planes. In 1956 he played an Amalekite herder in Cecil B. DeMille's The Ten Commandments starring Charlton Heston. Connors appeared in many films, some of the more notable were: Sudden Fear (1952), Island in the Sky (1953), Swamp Women (Swamp Diamonds), Five Guns West (1955), The Day the World Ended (1955), Shake, Rattle and Rock (1956), and Flesh and the Spur (1957). Connors died in Tarzana, California, a week after being diagnosed with leukemia, at the age of 91. The Mannix Library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog. The added episodes are:

      The Name is Mannix
      Skid Marks
      Nothing Works Twice
      The Many Deaths
      It Never Happened
      A Vacation
      Shadow Of A Dream
      Huntdown
      Turn Every Stone
      Falling Star
      Deadfall P1
      Deadfall P2
      Killed Out There
      It's A Miracle

      1/26/17 - Upon hearing of the passing of Mary Tyler Moore this morning I decided to complete my Mary Tyler Moore Show library by adding all of the available episodes of Seasons 5, 6. and 7 (forty-one total). No Season 4 episodes have been found so far. 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. I will also add episodes to the Dick Van Dyke Show library in the near future. 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.

      1/25/17 - Today I added all thirty-two episodes of Season 3 to the My Favorite Martian Library which completes the library. These are from Hulu (sorry about the commercials). My Favorite Martian (1963–1966) was an American television sitcom that aired on CBS for 107 episodes. The show starred Ray Walston as the Martian, and Bill Bixby as Tim O'Hara. A human-looking extraterrestrial in a one-man spaceship crash-lands near Los Angeles. The ship's pilot is, in fact, an anthropologist from Mars and is now stranded on Earth. The new library is located in the Comedy Shows and the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalogs.

      1/24/17 - Today I added the last fifteen available episodes to the I Led 3 Lives library. This completes the library until I find more of the episodes. I Led 3 Lives (1952-1954) aired during the height of the "Red Scare" years and was loosely based on the life of Herbert Philbrick, a Boston advertising executive who infiltrated the U.S. Communist Party on behalf of the FBI in the 1940s and wrote a bestselling book on the topic, I Led 3 Lives: Citizen, 'Communist', Counterspy (1952). The part of Philbrick was played by Richard Carlson. The series lasted 117 episodes. Philbrick narrated each episode and served as a technical consultant — and all scripts were approved by J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI. Nonetheless, the episodes often had very little to do with the actual events of Philbrick's life, with plotlines taking Philbrick on journeys to Europe and South America. They gradually became more and more outlandish, featuring such supposed "Communist plots" as an attempt to convert vacuum cleaners into bomb launchers. The "three lives" in the title are Philbrick's outward life as a white-collar worker, his secret life as a Communist agent and his even more secret life as an FBI operative helping foil Communist plots. I remember seeing a few episodes of this show when I was about 5 years old - and there were two take-aways, the paranoid view of the Communist Party and the cynicism that seemed to infect the portrayals of the actors who played party operatives. They always seemed to be "laughing up their sleeves" at what they perceived as the moronic patriotism and gullibility of their American couterparts. This show aired in syndication from 1952 until 1957, for the most part after the US Senate had censured Senator Joseph McCarthy in 1954 for his anti-Communist activities and is credited with helping prolong the "Red Scare" mentality of a large portion of the Amercan public. It is said to have been Lee Harvey Oswald's favorite show. The other thing I want to mention is that information concerning air dates are almost non-existant for this series, as well as plot summaries, so many of the episodes have neither of them listed. Also the information regarding the seasons and episode are disputed among the various databases I generally consult, so I have gone with The Internet Movie Database (iMDB) listing bcause they usually prove to be the most accurate. Because of the espionage facet of this series, it is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog. The added episodes are the last 15 in the library, starting with the episode entitled "Prisoner".

      1/23/17 - Today I added all thirty episodes of Season 4 to the Gomer Pyle USMC Library. Gomer Pyle was a television character played by Jim Nabors and introduced in the middle of the third season of The Andy Griffith Show. Pyle, was a simpleminded and gentle auto mechanic. Nabors played Pyle for 23 episodes from 1962 to 1964. After two seasons on The Andy Griffith Show, Griffith proposed a show based on the Gomer Pyle character. In 1964, the character was spun off into Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C. I now have all 5 Seasons of the series (150 episodes) bookmarked - 1 Seasons to go! This library is located in the Comedy Shows Catalog.

      1/22/17 - Today I added the first seventeen episodes of Season 4 to the The Doris Day Show library. Doris Day (born Doris Mary Ann Kappelhoff; April 3, 1922 or 1924) is an American actress, singer, and animal rights activist. Day began her career as a big band singer in 1939. Her popularity began to rise after her first hit recording "Sentimental Journey", in 1945. After leaving Les Brown & His Band of Renown to embark on a solo career, Day started her long-lasting partnership with Columbia Records, which remained her only recording label. Over the course of her career, Day appeared in 39 films. She was ranked the biggest box-office star, the only woman appearing on that list in the era, for four years (1960, 1962, 1963 and 1964), ranking in the top 10 for ten years (1951–1952 and 1959–1966). All of this is located in the Doris Day Catalog, which is located in the Feature Films Catalog and in the Catalog of Stars. The Doris Day Show can also be found in the Whacky Dames an the Family Comedies & Drama Catalogs.

      1/21/17 - Today I added the last thirteen available episodes to the Sword of Freedom library which completes the library until find more episodes. Sword of Freedom (1958-1960) was a 1958 drama adventure series for a family audience. Like several of its predecessors (most notably The Adventures of Robin Hood), it was produced by Sapphire Films for ITC Entertainment and fitted into the same swashbuckler genre as previous productions. Edmund Purdom portrays Marco del Monte, a young Republican artist living in sixteenth century Renaissance Florence. The city is ruled by the tyrant Duke de Medici. Marco's girlfriend is Angelica, a beautiful former pickpocket. Sandro is Marco's friend and confidant. Machiavelli is the Duke's advisor, and Captain Rodrigo is the head of the Medici forces. The series depicts the struggles of the Republicans to combat the attempts of the Duke to strengthen his position and make himself a dictator. I noticed today, when going through the plot summaries for the latest additions, that some very famous people appear as characters in the series from time to time. For instance Leonardo da Vinci is the focus in one episodes, and the Italian explorer, Amerigo Vespucci, (from which the name "America" is derived) also makes an appearance in the very next episode. The new library is located in the Historical Drama, and Action and Adventure Catalogs.

      1/20/17 - Finding myself yearning for an earlier time in history, I decided to add thirty-two episodes to the Bonanza Library. This takes us too the end of Season 8. Bonanza was an NBC television western series that ran from 1959 to 1973. Lasting 14 seasons and 431 episodes, Bonanza is NBC's longest-running western, and ranks overall as the second-longest-running western series on U.S. network television (behind CBS' Gunsmoke), and within the top 10 longest-running, live-action American series. The show continues to air in syndication. The show is set around the 1860s and it centers on the wealthy Cartwright family, who live in the area of Virginia City, Nevada, bordering Lake Tahoe. The series stars Lorne Greene, Dan Blocker, Michael Landon, Pernell Roberts (who left after six seasons), and later David Canary and Mitch Vogel. I still have several seasons bookmarked, including Seasons 10, 11 and 13 - so lots more to come. This library is located in the Western Shows and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs.

      1/19/17 - Today I restored my Green Acres library, after discovering that Hulu has taken their collection down. In Green Acres, a New York attorney and his wife try to live as genteel farmers in the bizarre community of Hooterville. Stars: Eddie Albert, Eva Gabor and Tom Lester. This library is available via the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. I was able to restore almost all of Seasons 1 through 3 and about half of Season 4 from Daily Motion. I also have some episodes from Seasons 5 and 6, so more to come.

      1/18/17 - Today added the final thirteen available episodes too the Bewitched! library, which completes the library until I find more episodes. Bewitched! (1964 - 1972) was an American television sitcom fantasy series, originally broadcast on ABC and starred Elizabeth Montgomery, Dick York, Agnes Moorehead, and David White. The show is about a witch who marries an ordinary mortal man, and vows to lead the life of a typical suburban housewife. Bewitched was the longest-running supernatural-themed sitcom of the 1960s–1970s. In 2002, Bewitched was ranked #50 on "TV Guide's 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time". The new library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas and the Whacky Dames Catalogs.

      1/17/17 - Today I added all twenty-six episodes to Season 4 of the Dragnet (1967) Library, which completes the library. Jack Webb relaunched Dragnet in 1966, with NBC once again airing the series. He tried to persuade Ben Alexander to rejoin him as Frank Smith. Alexander was then committed to an ABC police series, Felony Squad, and the producers would not release him. Webb reluctantly came up with a new character to take the role of Joe Friday's partner, calling upon his longtime friend Harry Morgan to play Officer Bill Gannon. This library is available in the Dragnet Catalog, which can be found in the Action and Adventure and the Mystery, Detectives and Crime Drama Catalogs. These videos are from Hulu (sorry about the commercials).

      1/16/17 - Today I added the twenty available episodes to Season 5 of the Stargate SG-1 library, which completes the library until I find more episodes. Stargate SG-1 was an adventure and military science fiction television series produced by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. The show, created by Brad Wright and Jonathan Glassner, is based on the 1994 science fiction film Stargate by Dean Devlin and Roland Emmerich. SG-1 is an elite United States Air Force special operations team, one of about 20 teams from Earth who explore the galaxy and defend against alien threats. I highly recommend this series, in fact, I am currently re-watching it on Hulu, which has all of the 10 seasons, but does not make them available for emdedded streaming. Even though I don't have all of the episodes in my library, the individual shows hold up very well on their own, and the characters and plots are very imaginitive and entertaining. This library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog.

      1/15/17 - Tonight I added ten episodes too the Leave It to Beaver library Leave It to Beaver was an American television situation comedy about an inquisitive and often naïve boy, Theodore "The Beaver" Cleaver (portrayed by Jerry Mathers), and his adventures at home, in school, and around his suburban neighborhood. The show also starred Barbara Billingsley and Hugh Beaumont as Beaver's parents, June and Ward Cleaver, and Tony Dow as Beaver's brother Wally. The show has attained an iconic status in the United States, with the Cleavers exemplifying the idealized suburban family of the mid-20th century. My original library only had 3 episodes from YouTube, and they vanished almost as soon as I put them up. I hadn't thought about the series in a long time and then someone asked me about it recently, so I decided to look around and found some episodes from the last three seasons (Seasons 4, 5 and 6). I hope to find more but they are hard to come by. I will keep my eyes peeled. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added episodes all preceeded the ones already included, so they are now the first ten episodes in the library.
      Beaver's Big Contest
      Wally's Glamour Girl
      Ward's Millions
      Junior Fire Chief
      Wally's Car
      Beaver's Cat Problem
      Beaver's Ice Skates
      Weekend Invitation
      Wally's Chauffeur
      Beaver's Long Night

      1/14/17 - Today I created a new Home Improvement Library with twenty-one episodes to start. Home Improvement was an American television sitcom starring Tim Allen that aired on ABC from September 17, 1991, to May 25, 1999, with a total of 204 half-hour episodes spanning over eight seasons. The series was created by Matt Williams, Carmen Finestra and David McFadzean. In the 1990s it was one of the most watched sitcoms in the American market, winning many awards. The series launched Tim Allen's acting career and was the start of the television career of Pamela Anderson, who was part of the recurring cast for the first two seasons. I have almost the entire series (8 Seasons!) bookmarked - except for the first 18 episodes of Season 1 - but I am going to hold off on posting any more for a little while. I have a certain paranoia about building large libraries for shows that aired in later than the 1970s. The new library is located in the Comedy Shows, and the Family Drama and Comedies Catalogs.

      1/13/17 - Late last night I added the twenty-three available episodes to Season 3 of the The Waltons library. I have most of the first 8 Seasons bookmarked so many more to come. The Waltons (1971–1981) is about the family of John Walton Jr. (known as John-Boy): his six siblings, his parents John and Olivia Walton, and the elder John's parents Zebulon "Zeb" and Esther Walton. John-Boy is the oldest of the children, who becomes a journalist and novelist. Created by Earl Hamner, Jr., based on his book Spencer's Mountain, and a 1963 film of the same name, the show is centered on a family in a rural Virginia community during the Great Depression and World War II. Each episode is narrated at the opening and closing by a middle-aged John-Boy (voiced by author Earl Hamner on whom John-Boy is based). John Sr. manages to eke out a living for his family by operating a lumber mill with his sons' help as they grow older. The family income is augmented by some small-scale farming, and John occasionally hunts to put meat on the table. Stars: Richard Thomas, Ralph Waite, Michael Learned, Ellen Corby and Will Geer. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

      1/11/17 - Today I created a new The Greatest American Hero library with thirty episodes to start, which takes us to the end of Season 2. The Greatest American Hero (1981–1983) was an American comedy-drama television series that aired on ABC. The series features teacher Ralph Hinkley and chronicles Ralph's adventures after a group of aliens gives him a red suit that grants him superhuman abilities. Unfortunately for Ralph, he immediately loses its instruction booklet, and thus has to learn how to use its powers by trial and error, often with comical results. Stars: William Katt, Connie Sellecca, as Ralph's lawyer girlfriend and Robert Culp as FBI Agent Bill Maxwell. This first posting includes the Pilot, which was a TV Movie. The new library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror and Action and Adventure Catalogs.

      1/10/17 - Today I added fourteen episodes to complete Season 1 of the The Rifleman library. The Rifleman (1958-1963) was an American Western television program starring Chuck Connors as rancher Lucas McCain and Johnny Crawford as his son, Mark McCain. It was set in the 1870s and 1880s in the town of North Fork, New Mexico Territory. It was one of the first prime time series on American television to show a widowed parent raising a child. The program was titled to reflect McCain's use of a modified Winchester rifle. Shown at the beginning of every episode in the opening credits, McCain would fire the rifle using the lever rather than pulling the trigger. This series has special significance for me because Chuck Connors had a house in Woodlands Hills not far from where I grew up in Canoga Park. Kids in my neighborhood would talk their parents into taking them to trick-or-treat in Woodland Hills because Mr. Connors would usually come to the door himself and distribute goodies on Halloween. This library is located Chuck Connors Catalog which can be accessed via the Western Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. The Rifleman library is also available seperately in the Western Shows Catalog. The added episodes are:

      Boarding House
      The Second Witness
      Went to Denver
      The Deadly Wait
      The Wrong Man
      The Challenge
      The Hawk
      Three-Legged Terror
      The Angry Man
      The Woman
      Matter of Faith
      Blood Brother
      The Raid
      Mind Reader

      1/9/17 - Last night I went to add three episodes too the Pete & Gladys library and discovered that the entire library (all of which were YouTube based) had vanished! So I spent the evening tracking down replacements so that I could restore the library. Pete & Gladys (1960-1962) was a popular 1950s CBS sitcom, a spin-off from December Bride, starring Spring Byington. Pete Porter (Harry Morgan) was the next-door neighbor who spent most of his time complaining about his scatterbrained wife Gladys, who was unseen to viewers. In this spin-off series, Gladys emerged as the redhaired comedienne Cara Williams. Pete was an insurance salesman, and the happy couple resided in Westwood, California. Both of these series' were VERY popular. As I have mentioned before, it is really sad that so few of these episodes (9 at this point) are available. When I first built the library I adding a Pete & Gladys thumbnail, which links to the December Bride Library in the Comedy Shows, Whacky Dames, Family Drama and Comedies Catalogs. The added episodes (which increased the number from 6 to 9) are:

      Pete's Changing Personality
      The Mannequin Story
      Sleepytime Wife

      1/8/17 - Today I created a new Assignment: Underwater library with eight episodes so far. Assignment: Underwater (1960–1961) was an American adventure television series which aired in NTA Film Network syndication. The series starred prolific B-movie actor Bill Williams and Diane Mountford. Williams played Bill Greer, the skipper aboard a charter boat named The Lively Lady. Mountford played his daughter, Patty. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure Catalog.

      1/7/16 - Today I added the last thirty available episodes of Season 6 to the The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp library. This completes the library until I find more of the missing episodes. I have continued to watch these shows and highly recommend them. The Earp character, as portayed by Hugh O'Brian, is really different from a lot of western heroes - he is strong and confident, but also humble. In all of the shows I've watched so far he manages to win each fight without killing anyone. The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp (1955-1961) was the first western television series written for adults, premiering four days before Gunsmoke on September 6, 1955. It was loosely based on the life of frontier marshal Wyatt Earp. The half-hour black-and-white program aired for 229 episodes on ABC from 1955 to 1961. O'Brian was chosen for the role in part because of his physical resemblance to early photographs of Wyatt Earp. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Western Shows Catalog.

      1/6/17 - Today I added twenty-one episodes of Season 3 and 1 episode of Season 5 to the Get Smart Library which completes the series until I find more episodes. Get Smart (1965–1970) was an American comedy television series that satirized the secret agent genre. The show starred Don Adams (as Maxwell Smart, Agent 86), Barbara Feldon (as Agent 99). Created by Mel Brooks with Buck Henry, Brooks said: "It's an insane combination of James Bond and Mel Brooks comedy." During the show's run, it generated a number of popular catchphrases, including "Would you believe...", "Missed it by that much!", "Sorry about that, Chief", "The Old (such-and-such) Trick", "And... loving it", and "I asked you not to tell me that". The new library is located in the Comedy Shows Catalogs, and because it deals with espionage (albeit in a comical fashion), it is also found in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog. On a personal note, this show was on right at the end of my high school years and was one of the few that I continued to watch regularly into my college days. It is one of the funniest shows I remember watching and I highly recommend it.

      1/5/17 - Today I added eleven episodes to the Ford Theatre library. After a long run on radio and live television, Ford Theatre (1952–1957) - a half-hour filmed version returned to the airwaves on NBC for the 1951-52 season. At that time, production was moved from New York to Hollywood, and featured actors based there rather than on Broadway. During this period, Ford Theatre finished in the Nielsen ratings at number 30 for the 1952-1953 season, number seven in 1953-1954, number 9 in 1954-1955, and number 13 in 1955-1956. After four seasons on NBC, the program was shown for a final season on ABC during the 1956-57 season. The last primetime broadcast of Ford Theatre was on July 10, 1957. In 1954, Billboard voted it the best filmed network television drama series. The added episodes are all of them found on the second library page.

      1/4/17 - Over the last few days I managed to track down the remaining ten episodes of the The Addams Family series, thus completing the library. Since I just posted the restored library a few days ago I won't bother with the usual long-winded description of the series (I usually get them from Wikipedia, by the way). The restored library can be found in the Comedy Shows, Whacky Dames, Family Drama and Comedies and the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalogs. The added episodes are:

      Morticia, the Sculptress
      Reluctant Lover
      Gomez, the Cat Burglar
      Portrait of Gomez
      Morticia's Dilemma
      Christmas
      Uncle Fester, Tycoon
      Fester and Grandmama
      Fester Goes on a Diet
      Great Treasure Hunt

      1/3/17 - Today I created a new Everglades! library with seventeen episodes to start. Everglades! (1961–1962) was an American crime-adventure television series that aired in syndication for one season from 1961–62 and in reruns. Ron Hayes starred as Constable Lincoln Vail, a law enforcement officer of the fictional Everglades County Patrol who traveled the Florida Everglades in an airboat, a vehicle which was often the focus of the program. Hayes, a northern California actor and stuntman, was an avid outdoorsman and conservationist. I had neer heard of this show and the interesting thing I found about this series is that if you listen too the theme music at the beginning of each episode, it sounds like it has to be a kids show, and yet the plot summaries and the little bit of some of the episodes I have watched all seem to be pretty sophisticated. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure Catalog.

      1/2/17 - Today, at the suggesteion of my Facebook friend, Stan Zeitlin, I decided to look around for some episodes of The Munsters, and was pleased to find almost all of the series episodes on Daily Motion. I have posted twenty-three of the available episodes so far. The Munsters (1964–1966) was an American sitcom depicting the home life of a family of benign monsters starring Fred Gwynne as Herman Munster and Yvonne De Carlo as his wife, Lily Munster. The series was a satire of both traditional monster movies and the wholesome family fare of the era, and was produced by the creators of Leave It to Beaver. It ran concurrently with the similarly macabre themed The Addams Family and achieved higher figures in the Nielsen ratings. The new library is located in the Comedy Shows, Whacky Dames, Family Drama and Comedies and the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalogs. It is also located in the new Fred Gwynne Catalog, which can be found in the Catalog of Stars.

      1/1/17 - Today I restored my The Addams Family library, which vanished a while back when Hulu decided to move it into their "Pay or Play" selections. 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.

      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
