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 20,000 individual programs available including episodic TV shows, specials, and Short Format and Feature length films. There are now search engines like the one above installed on the Front Door Page and the Main Library Page to make finding your favorite shows easier.

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

      Updates | Back to the Front Door


      2/19/17 - 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 Funny Guys 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 Funny Guys 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 Funny Guys 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
      Too-Perfect Signature
      431TriggerFinger
      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 Funny Guys 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 Funny Guys, 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 series had a very strong comedic element. 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.

      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 Funny Guys 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 Funny Guys 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 Funny Guys, 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 Funny Guys, 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 Funny Guys 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 Funny Guys, 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 Funny Guys, 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 Funny Guys, Whacky Dames, Family Drama and Comedies and the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalogs.

      12/31/16 - Today I created a new Ironside library with all twenty-eight episodes of Season 1 to start. 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 the first 3 Seasons 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.

      12/30/16 - Late last night I decided to create a new Debbie Reynolds Film library. With the passing of Ms. Reynolds on Wedneday, only one day after the death of her daughter, Carrie Fisher, my original plan was to create libraries for both of them. Unfortunately, I was unable to find a single movie starring Carre Fisher that was available for free streaming, so I went with a single library of Debbie Reynolds films, of which I was able to find six. Mary Frances "Debbie" Reynolds (April 1, 1932 – December 28, 2016) was an American actress, singer, businesswoman, film historian, and humanitarian. Her breakout role came in the portrayal of Helen Kane in the 1950 film Three Little Words, for which she was nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Most Promising Newcomer. However, it was her first leading role in 1952 at age 19, as Kathy Selden in Singin' in the Rain, that set her on the path to fame. Her other successes include The Affairs of Dobie Gillis (1953), Susan Slept Here (1954), Bundle of Joy (1956 Golden Globe nomination), The Catered Affair (1956 National Board of Review Best Supporting Actress Winner), and Tammy and the Bachelor (1957), in which her performance of the song "Tammy" reached number one on the Billboard music charts. In 1959, she released her first pop music album, entitled Debbie. The new library is located in the Whacky Dames and the Feature Films Catalogs, and the Catalog of Stars.

      12/29/16 - Today I added twelve 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) 273 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:

      Monetary System
      Boys' Day
      The Miracle
      The Incentive
      Thorny's Piano
      An Evening with Hamlet
      Fourteen Mile Hike
      The Stewardess
      Decorating Dave's Office
      Torn Dress
      Rick's Wedding Ring
      Wally's Pen Pal

      12/28/16 - Today I created a new The Whackiest Ship in the Army library with ten episodes to start. The Whackiest Ship in the Army (1965-1966) tells the story of when, in the spring of 1942, the New Zealand government presented the U.S. a 70-year-old wooden twin-masted schooner. The US military decides to use the ship to place spies ashore behind Japanese lines. While underway, the ship is commanded by Lieutenant Rip Riddle of the US Navy; while in port, the ship is commanded by Major Simon Butcher of the US Army which leads to many disputes between the two men. Stars: Jack Warden, Gary Collins, Mike Kellin. Some of these are colorized. This was a short-lived series (only 29 episodes) and I will be on the lookout for more of them - but so far these are the only ones I have found. The new library is located in the Funny Guys and the Action and Adventure Catalogs.

      12/27/16 - Today I competed the restoration of my The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis library, (which was originally from Hulu) from Daily Motion, by adding the twenty-eight available episodes of Season 4. These episodes were NOT in the original library. The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis library revolved around the life of teenager/young adult Dobie Gillis (Dwayne Hickman), who, along with his best friend, beatnik, Maynard G. Krebs (Bob Denver), struggles against the forces of his life - high school, the military, college, and his parents (Frank Faylen and Florida Friebus) - as he aspires to attain both wealth and dates with girls. This library is located in the Funny Guys, the Family Comedies and Dramas and the Bob Denver Catalogs.

      12/26/16 - After adding episodes too the Mary Tyler Moore Show the other day I decided it was time to also expand the The Dick Van Dyke Show library by adding the thirty-one available epiodes to Season 4. 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 Funny Guys Catalogs, and can also be accessed via the Mary Tyler Moore Catalog. These episodes are from Hulu.

      12/24/16 - Today I added all twenty-four episodes of Season 3 to the Mary Tyler Moore Show library. The Mary Tyler Moore Show (1970–1977) was an American television sitcom created by James L. Brooks and Allan Burns that aired on CBS. The program was a television breakthrough, with the first never-married, independent career woman as the central character. It is one of the most acclaimed television programs in US television history. In 2013, the Writers Guild of America ranked The Mary Tyler Moore Show No. 6 in its list of the 101 Best Written TV Series of All Time. This addition completes the Hulu portion of the series, but fear not - I have found and bookmarked 41 more episodes from Daily Motion, with episodes from Seasons 5, 6 and 7 (no Season 4, so far). This library is located in the Mary Tyler Moore Catalog, which is available in the Whacky Dames Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      12/23/16 - Today I added fifteen more episodes to the Cowboy G-Men library, which almost doubles the size of the library from 16 to 31 episodes. Cowboy G-Men is an American Western series that aired in syndication for a total of thirty-nine episodes. Russell Hayden and former child actor Jackie Coogan star as Pat Gallagher and Stoney Crockett, respectively, a pair of government agents operating in the American West. Television actor Phil Arnold portrayed Zerbo, a sometimes associate of Gallagher and Crockett. I am still looking for the remaining 8 episodes. This library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Western Shows Catalog. The added episodes are:

      Chinaman's Chance
      Secret Mission
      Bounty Jumpers
      Koniackers
      Salted Mines
      Mysterious Decoy
      Ridge of Ghosts
      Silver Shotgun
      Rawhiders
      Gypsy Traders
      Empty Mailbags
      Stolen Dynamite
      Double Crossed
      High Heeled Boots
      California Bullets

      12/22/16 - Today I added the last twelve episodes too Season 6 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 several seasons bookmarked, including Seasons 7, 8, 10, 11 and 13 - so lots more to come. This library is located in the Western Shows and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs.

      12/20/16 - Today I added the remaining eighteen episodes to Season 2 of the Gomer Pyle USMC Library. This completes the first 3 Seasons of the series. 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 - 2 Seasons to go! This library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog.

      12/19/16 - Today I completed the The Silent Service library by adding the fifteen remaining available episodes of Season 2. The Silent Service (1957-1958) was a documentary dramatic anthology about the U.S. Navy's submarine fleet. All stories were based on fact and the realism was heightened by actual use of combat footage from the files of the Navy. The stories were varied between the South Pacific during World War II and the Korean War. The series was was narrated by Rear Admiral Thomas M. Dykers, who retired from the Navy in 1949 after twenty-two years of service. He began each episode with this refrain: "Tonight, we bring you another thrilling episode of Silent Service stories, of warfare under the sea." I have 73 of the 78 episodes that make up the complete series bookmarked, so more to come. This library can also be found in the War on Film Catalog, accessed via the Feature Films Catalog. The added episodes are all of the ones on the 4th page of the library.

      12/18/16 - Yesterday I added episodes to the Frasier library, and it occurred too me to look around for some Cheers episodes. I looked at Daily Motion and YouTube and found nothing but horizontically distorted videos or short clips. Then I decided to see if it was on Hulu...and I found the entire series, all eleven seasons! (Sorry about the commercials :-( )So I have created the new library with the twenty-two episodes of Season 1 to start. 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 Funny Guys Catalog, and also the Family Comedies and Dramas and the Whacky Dames Catalogs.

      12/17/16 - Today I added all twenty-four episodes to Season 2 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. The new library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog. I am consistantly amazed at some of the things I find on the Daily Motion streaming site. I have all but 3 of the episodes of this 11 Season series bookmarked, so many. many more to come!

      12/14/16 - Another morning spent in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog. Today I added ten episodes to the One Step Beyond library. Created by Merwin Gerard and produced by Collier Young, One Step Beyond (1959-1961) was hosted by John Newland, "your guide to the supernatural" (also credited as "Our guide into the world of the unknown"). Newland presented tales that explored paranormal events and various situations that defied "logical" explanation. Unlike other anthology programmers, the ABC network series episodes were presented in the form of straightforward thirty-minute docudramas, all said to be based on true events. Initially, the program included the corporate name of sponsor Alcoa as part of its full title. Another highly recommended series. The added episodes are:

      The Haunting
      The Return
      The Gift
      The Stranger
      The Face
      The Room Upstairs
      The Confession
      The Avengers
      The Prisoner
      The Villa

      12/13/16 - Today I added twenty-two episodes to the Outer Limits library. This completes the restoration of the library with all 49 episodes of the series intact. The Outer Limits is an American television series that aired on ABC. 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 is an anthology of self-contained episodes, sometimes with a plot twist at the end. The series was revived in 1995, airing on Showtime from 1995 to 2000, then on Sci-Fi Channel from 2001 until its cancellation in 2002. This library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog. The added episodes are:

      Architects of Fear
      Controlled Experiment
      Doomsday
      ZZZZZZ
      The Invisibles
      Specimen Unknown
      The GuestF
      Fun and Games
      The Special One
      Cold Hands, Warm Heart
      Expanding Human
      Cry of Silence
      The Invisible Enemy
      Wolf 359
      I Robot
      The Inheritors PI
      The Inheritors PII
      Purple Twilight
      The Duplicate Man
      Colonel Barham
      The Premonition
      The Probe

      12/12/16 - Today I added the thirteen available episodes from Season 2 (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 Funny Guys Catalog.

      12/11/16 - Today I restored my Richard Boone Show library with nineteen episodes to start. Richard Boone hosted the series and starred in about half of the episodes, garnering an Emmy nomination for himself and a Golden Globe award for the show. His repertory company of 15 actors included up-and-comers such as Guy Stockwell and Robert Blake as well as such established performers as Bethel Leslie (who was nominated for an Emmy Award for her performance in the series), Warren Stevens and Harry Morgan. They rotated parts freely; each appeared in most episodes, and each starred in at least one. This library is located in the Television Drama Catalog.

      12/10/16 - Today I added ten 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) 261 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. By the way, the reason I add so few episodes to this libarary each time is that because of it's size, any additions cause massive changes throughout the library - I have to move things from one library page to the next whenever I add episodes, so I try to plan it out and work strategically to avoid messing up the order. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added episodes are scattered throughout seasons 8 through 14 of the series and include:

      English Literature Class
      Big Plans for Summer
      The Lost Briefcase
      Bowling with the Wives
      Our Man in Alaska
      The Boys' Portraits
      Pen and Pencil Set
      Rick's 21st Birthday
      Any Date in a Storm
      Ozzie, the Babysitter

      12/9/16 - Today I added the last eleven available episodes of Season 5 to the The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp library. I have watched about a dozen or so of these shows and highly recommend it. 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. One season to go, so more to come. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Western Shows Catalog.

      12/8/16 - Today I created a new Sword of Freedom library with fifteen episodes to start. 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. The new library is located in the Historical Drama, and Action and Adventure Catalogs.

      12/7/16 - Today I created a new The Man Called X library with twenty-four episodes to start. The Man Called X (1956-1957) was originally a radio series. Agent Ken Thurston took on dangerous cases in a variety of exotic locations. The radio series was created by Jay Richard Kennedy who later adapted The Man Called X as a 39 episode syndicated TV series starring Barry Sullivan as Thurston for Ziv Television. The Season, Episode, Air Dates and Plot summary information for this show was very hard to come by. I basically pieced it together from a number of different n-line databases. The new library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama and the Action and Adventure Catalogs.

      12/6/16 - Today I added thirteen episodes to my The Adventures of Kit Carson library. The Adventures of Kit Carson (1951-1955) was an American Western series that aired in syndication, originally sponsored by Coca-Cola. As were most western shows at the time, the program was intended for children, and presented a fictionalized version of Carson and his life. In the series, Kit Carson roamed the West with his companion El Toro, seeking to help those in need. Kit rode a horse named Apache. It starred Bill Williams in the title role as frontier scout Christopher "Kit" Carson. Don Diamond co-starred as "El Toro", Carson's Mexican companion. Thie library is located in the Western TV Shows catalog. The added episodes are:

      Prince of Padua Hills
      The Padre's Treasure
      Riders of Capistrano
      Road to El Dorado
      Marauder of Madera
      Trail to Old Sonora
      Road to Destiny
      Golden Trap
      Mojave Desperados
      Highway to Doom
      Mask of the Vigilantes
      Widow of Indian Wells
      Ghost Town

      12/5/16 - Today I created a new Bewitched! library with eighteen episodes to start. 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.

      12/4/16 - Today I created a new Stagecoach West library with ten episodes to start. 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. While I was in the Western Shows Catalog I also added two episodes too the Frontier Doctor library. Frontier Doctor (1958-1959) follows the exploits of a small town physician, Dr. Bill Baxter, who rides in a buggy with his black bag and encounters more than his share of trouble as he aids many who cross his path. Operating from the fictitious town of "Rising Springs", Dr. Baxter often finds difficulty with his patients, such as the outlaw Butch Cassidy. The added episodes are:

      The Big Frame Up
      Elkton Lake Feud

      12/3/16 - Back in the Television Drama Catalog again - today I created a new Ford Theatre library with eighteen episodes to start. 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.

      12/2/16 - Today I created a new The David Niven Show library with twelve of the thirteen episodes that make up the series. The David Niven Show was an American television anthology series that aired from April 7 until July 7, 1959 and was hosted by British actor, David Niven, who introduced the dramas which made up this summer replacement series. James David Graham Niven (1 March 1910 – 29 July 1983) was an English actor and novelist. His many roles included Squadron Leader Peter Carter in A Matter of Life and Death, Phileas Fogg in Around the World in 80 Days, and Sir Charles Lytton, ("the Phantom") in The Pink Panther. He won the Academy Award for Best Actor for his performance in Separate Tables (1958). The new library is located in the Television Drama Catalog.

      12/1/16 - Late last night I restored my Adventures of Champion library with twenty three of the 26 episodes of the full series. The Adventures of Champion was an American adventure serial radio drama directed by William Burch about screen cowboy Gene Autry's horse Champion. The Western mystery tales focused on twelve-year-old Ricky West, who is raised in the wilderness by his adopted Uncle Sandy, and his German Shepherd named Rebel. Champion was depicted as a wild horse who let only Ricky ride him. The television series aired for 26 episodes on CBS during the 1955–1956 season and starred Barry Curtis and Jim Bannon. Fourteen of these episodes were from Hulu, which dropped the series a while back. I was able to restore them from another source. The restored library is located in the Kid Shows, Action and Adventure and the Western Shows Catalogs.

      11/29/16 - Today I added fifteen episodes too my I Led 3 Lives library, which more then doubles the size of the library from 12 to 27 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 the majority 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. I have 16 more of these episodes bookmarked, which I will post in the near future. The added episodes are:

      Campus Story
      The Jet Engine
      Helping Hand
      Gun Running
      Passports
      Youth Movement
      Infra-Red Film
      The Editor
      Oilfield
      Church
      Child Commie
      Commie Dies
      Comrade Eva
      Housebreaking
      Newsreel

      11/28/16 - Late last night, in honer of the passing of Ron Glass, I found and posted fifteen more episodes too my 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. Barney Miller 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. The added episodes are all of the ones in the 3rd and 4th column of the library page. 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.

      11/27/16 - Today I added 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) 251 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 are scattered throughout seasons 10 through 14 of the series and include:

      The Randolphs' Niece
      Client's Daughter
      Rick Sends a Picture
      The Adventurers
      Publicity for the Fraternity
      Letter of Recommendation
      Exotic Housemother
      Helpful June
      Secret Passage

      11/26/16 - Today I re-arrange my Racket Squad Library into proper order, and added nine episodes. Racket Squad was an American TV crime drama series that aired from 1951 to 1953. The format was a narrated anthology drama, as each individual episode featured various ordinary citizens getting ensnared in a different confidence scheme. Episodes were introduced and narrated by Reed Hadley as "Captain John Braddock", a fictional detective working for a police department in a large, unnamed American city. Braddock served as the series' host and narrator. The show dramatized the methods and machinations of con men and bunko artists. At episode's end, Captain Braddock gave viewers advice on how to avoid becoming the victim of the confidence game illustrated in the episode. Plots were based on actual case files from United States police departments, business organizations and other agencies. This library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog. This is another of my very early libraries, so I have also added Plot Summaries, Season and Episode numbers and air dates for each episode. The added episodes are:

      Babies for Sale
      Staff of Life
      Pick a Number
      One More Dream
      Blessed Expense
      Sale Value
      Romance Unlimited
      Sting of Fate
      The Case of the Sure Thing

      11/23/16 - Today I added the first twenty available episodes to Season 6 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 several seasons bookmarked, including Seasons 7, 8, 10, 11 and 13 - so lots more to come. This library is located in the Western Shows and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs.

      11/22/16 - Today I added fourteen episodes to my Cowboy G-Men library, which expands the library by a factor of 8, from 2 to 16 episodes. Cowboy G-Men is an American Western series that aired in syndication for a total of thirty-nine episodes. Russell Hayden and former child actor Jackie Coogan star as Pat Gallagher and Stoney Crockett, respectively, a pair of government agents operating in the American West. Television actor Phil Arnold portrayed Zerbo, a sometimes associate of Gallagher and Crockett. This is the first time I have updated this librar since I created in way back in 2010. This library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Western Shows Catalog. The added episodes are:

      Ozark Gold
      The Golden Wolf
      The Chippewa Indians
      Center Fire
      Running Iron
      Hang the Jury
      The Run Down
      Hangfire
      Hush Money
      Ghost Town Mystery
      The Sawdust Swindle
      Spring the Trap
      The Sidewinder
      The Woman Mayor

      11/21/2016 - Today I added the first fifteen available episodes to Season 5 of The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp library. I have watched about a dozen or so of these shows and highly recommend it. 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. A little more than one season to go!. So many more to come. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Western Shows Catalog.

      11/20/16 - Anyone who has visited the Main Library Page since late last night has probably noticed that there is a new Catalog there. Located at the right end of the second row is the new Playlists Catalog. This catalog is geared toward "binge-watching" and party situations. The playlists run continuously once you start one playing, but you can also select individual videos by clicking on the list that appears under the video window. I mosty decided to create this catolog out of frustration. I have found many items on the Internet Archive that contain multiple files, and in a lot of cases it is possible to embed the indivdual files for viewing. But there is a wrinkle. If you look at the locations you visit on the internet, the URLs, they never have spaces in the code. Unfortunately, for my purposes, a lot of people who upload to the Internet Archive don't understand this principle. Basically, in order to reference a file on the internet, that file MUST NOT contain any spaces in the filename. So if someone uploads a file to IA that contains spaces in the filename, that file cannot be referenced directly. Fortunately, if the file is part of a group of files in the same IA item, the item itself can be referenced, and the result is a playlist showing all of the item's video files. The frustration for me was that many of these playlists are for programs that I have never been able to find as indivdual items. By posting the playlist, it allows me to add these programs too my library. Some of them, by the way, are very extensive. In the new catalog, in the SciFi/Horror library, I have a playlist that contains 153 episodes of The Outer Limits! There is also a set of 10 Dark Shadows playlists, each of which contains 100 episodes of the show - that's 1000 episodes of the show! On the new shows list there are the comedy classics, Mama's Family and M*A*S*H for instance, neither of which I have been able to present on the site in the past. This Catalog will expand as I find more playlsts to post. Check it out!

      11/18/16 - Today I created a new Terry and the Pirates library with sixteen of the 18 episodes that comprise the entire series. The other 2 are rumored to be lost, but we'll see about that. Terry and the Pirates (1952-1953) was an American adventure series based on Milton Caniff's comic strip. The syndicated series ran for 18 episodes and was produced by Don Sharpe Enterprises. Canada Dry Ginger Ale was the show's original sponsor. USAAF Colonel Terry Lee (John Baer) heads to the Far East to locate a gold mine he inherited from his grandfather. Once in the Orient, Lee becomes a pilot with Air Cathay, a cargo and passenger airline owned and operated by the cunning Chopstick Joe (Jack Reitzen), who is not always honest. His friend and co-pilot is Charles C. Charles, aka Hotshot Charlie (William Tracy), while the romantic interest is provided by the attractive blonde Burma (Sandra Spence). Lee has several encounters in thirteen episodes with his beautiful and mysterious nemesis, Lai Choi San, aka The Dragon Lady (Gloria Saunders). In the pilot episode, "Macao Gold", Chopstick Joe was portrayed by Jack Kruschen and Burma was played by Mari Blanchard. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure Catalog. This should not be conused with the Terry and the Pirates theatrical serial I posted last week.

      11/17/16 - Today I added nine episodes to the 13 Demon Street library which completes the series. 13 Demon Street was a horror anthology TV series that aired between 1959 and 1960 in American syndication. Thirteen 25-minute episodes were produced in Sweden, although the language, and cast, is English. Lon Chaney Jr. was the host, introducing each episode from his 'home' at 13 Demon Street. Condemned for some shockingly atrocious crime, Chaney's purpose in relating the series' stories was to convince viewers that the crimes presented in them were worse than his, thus freeing him from his purgatory. This was hard for audiences to judge, however, because Chaney's original crime was never specified. Three episodes of the series were edited together to make a theatrical feature called The Devil's Messenger, in which Chaney's character was reconfigured as Satan himself. Chaney filmed new wraparound segments to link the chosen episodes, which were 'The Photograph', 'The Girl in the Glacier' and 'Condemned in Crystal'. The feature film is also included in the library. This library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog.

      11/16/16 - Today I added six episodes to the One Step Beyond library. Created by Merwin Gerard and produced by Collier Young, One Step Beyond (1959-1961) was hosted by John Newland, "your guide to the supernatural" (also credited as "Our guide into the world of the unknown"). Newland presented tales that explored paranormal events and various situations that defied "logical" explanation. Unlike other anthology programmers, the ABC network series episodes were presented in the form of straightforward thirty-minute docudramas, all said to be based on true events. Initially, the program included the corporate name of sponsor Alcoa as part of its full title. Another highly recommended series, this is the first time I have added episodes since 2013. This library is the first one in line in my alphbetized SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog. The added episodes are:

      The Justice Tree
      The Lonely Room
      House of the Dead
      Goodbye Grandpa
      The Sorcerer
      Midnight

      11/15 16 - Today I restored my Leave It to Beaver library with ten episodes so far. 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 these episodes from the last two seasons (Seasons 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.

      11/14/16 - Today I added twenty episodes of Season 2 to the The Silent Service library. The Silent Service (1957-1958) was a documentary dramatic anthology about the U.S. Navy's submarine fleet. All stories were based on fact and the realism was heightened by actual use of combat footage from the files of the Navy. The stories were varied between the South Pacific during World War II and the Korean War. The series was was narrated by Rear Admiral Thomas M. Dykers, who retired from the Navy in 1949 after twenty-two years of service. He began each episode with this refrain: "Tonight, we bring you another thrilling episode of Silent Service stories, of warfare under the sea." I have 73 of the 78 episodes that make up the complete series bookmarked, so more to come. This library can also be found in the War on Film Catalog, accessed via the Feature Films Catalog.

      11/13/16 - Today, to celebrate the life and career of Robert Vaughn, who passed away on Friday, I created a Robert Vaughn Film library with eight of his feature films, and then created a Robert Vaughn Catalog to house the new film library and The Man from U.N.C.L.E. library, which starred Vaughn as Napoleon Solo in the series. Robert Francis Vaughn (November 22, 1932 – November 11, 2016) was an American actor noted for his stage, film and television work. His best-known TV roles include suave spy Napoleon Solo in the 1960s series The Man from U.N.C.L.E.; wealthy detective Harry Rule in the 1970s series The Protectors; and formidable General Hunt Stockwell in the 5th season of the 1980s series The A-Team. In film, he portrayed quiet, skittish gunman Lee in The Magnificent Seven, Major Paul Krueger in The Bridge at Remagen, the voice of Proteus IV, the computer villain of Demon Seed, Walter Chalmers in Bullitt, Ross Webster in Superman III, and war veteran Chester A. Gwynn in The Young Philadelphians which earned him a 1960 Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor. The new catalog is located in the Feature Films, the Action and Adventure Catalogs and also in the Catalog of Stars.

      11/11/16 - Today I restored my The Adventures of Robin Hood library by adding thirty-six episodes, which completes the series (144 episodes) for the first time since I started building the library in 2010. The Adventures of Robin Hood was a British television series comprising 144 half-hour, black and white episodes broadcast weekly between 1955 and 1959 on ITV. It starred Richard Greene as the outlaw Robin Hood and Alan Wheatley as his nemesis, the Sheriff of Nottingham. The show followed the legendary character Robin Hood and his band of merry men in Sherwood Forest and the surrounding vicinity. While some episodes dramatised the traditional Robin Hood tales, most episodes were original dramas created by the show's writers and producers. I had lost a substantial portion of the library when Hulu dropped their collection of the series a while back. This library is located in the Historical Drama, and Action and Adventure Catalogs. The added episodes are:
      The Imposters
      Ransom
      The Hero
      Haunted Mill
      Black Patch
      Friar's Pilgrimage
      The Trap

      11/10/16 - Today I added Season 2 (thiry episodes) to the Lost in Space library. 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. 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 entire series is available on Hulu, so one more season to come. This library is found in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog.

      11/8/16 - Today, in celebration of our current political situation, I decided to post episodes of a show about another character with an 8-year-old mentality, so I added ten episodes 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. The added episodes are the last one in Season 2, and all of the Season 3 episodes.

      11/7/16 - Today I add six episodes to the Outer Limits library. I recently lost most of this library when Hulu moved it into their "Paid Subscription" collection. I am slowly rebuilding it. The Outer Limits is an American television series that aired on ABC. 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 is an anthology of self-contained episodes, sometimes with a plot twist at the end. The series was revived in 1995, airing on Showtime from 1995 to 2000, then on Sci-Fi Channel from 2001 until its cancellation in 2002. I have found more of these and will be adding them soon. This library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog. The added episodes are:

      Bolero Shield
      Spider Country
      Second Chance
      Moonstone
      Demon with a Glass Hand
      Counterweight

      11/6/16 - Today I added five 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) 242 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 are scattered throughout the first 11 seasons of the series:
      The Safe Driver
      Buried Treasure
      The Fraternity Pin
      Fraternity Cook
      June Music Festival

      I also added eight more films to the Cecil B. DeMille library, and split the library up into Silent Films and Talking Pictures. The added films are:

      Male and Female (1919)
      Saturday Night (1922)
      The Volga Boatman (1926)
      The King of Kings (1927)
      The Yankee Clipper (1927)
      The Godless Girl (1929)
      The Crusades (1935)
      Reap the Wild Wind (1941)

      11/5/16 - Last night, for the first time ever, I found a copy of my favorite film of all time available for streaming. Samson and Delilah (1949) is an American romantic religious epic film produced and directed by Cecil B. DeMille and released by Paramount Pictures. It depicts the biblical story of Samson, a strongman whose secret lies in his uncut hair, and his love for Delilah, the woman who seduces him, discovers his secret, and then betrays him to the Philistines. It stars Hedy Lamarr and Victor Mature in the title roles, George Sanders as the Saran, Angela Lansbury as Semadar, and Henry Wilcoxon as Ahtur. The film was successfully re-released in 1959, and I saw it in a movie theater when I was 11 years old. Obviously, it made a very big impression with me and lives on in my memory too this day. It occurred to me that, in fact, I had no Cecil B. Demille films on the site, so I decided to see how many I could find, and came up with eleven more, so I built a Cecil B. DeMille library. Cecil Blount DeMille - August 12, 1881 – January 21, 1959) was an American filmmaker. Between 1913 and 1956, he made seventy features, both silent and sound films. He is acknowledged as a founding father of the Hollywood film industry, and the most commercially successful producer-director in cinema history. His films were distinguished by their epic scale and by his cinematic showmanship. The new library is located in the Feature Films and Silent Films Catalogs, and also in the Catalog of Stars.

      11/4/16 - Today I created a new Passport to Danger library with eleven episodes to start. Passport to Danger (1954-1955) chronicled the adventures of a diplomatic courier, starring Cesar Romero as Steve McQuinn. Each episode started with a voice-over saying "One of the vital functions of the United States Government is to establish and maintain diplomatic relations with other countries. In every friendly and civilized nation in the world there is an American Embassy or Legation. Whether it is Paris or Cairo, Shanghai or any other remote outpost, the most reliable and confidential means of communication is the Courier service. Armed only with his Passport, the Courier, like a global postman delivers the Top Secret dispatches of our Government." A "Tip of the Hat" to regular viewer, Kelly Brown, for telling me about this series, which I had never heard of. The new library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama and the Action and Adventure Catalogs. I also added five episodes 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. The added episodes are:

      The Clown
      Step Child
      Road to Nowhere
      Socrates
      Man Who Couldn't Remember

      11/3/16 - Today I created a new Cagney and Lacey library with twenty-three episodes to start, which takes us to Episode 17 of Season 2. Cagney & Lacey (1982-1988) was an American series that aired on the CBS television network. A police procedural drama, the show starred Tyne Daly and Sharon Gless as New York City police detectives who lead very different lives: Christine Cagney (Gless) was a single, career-minded woman, while Mary Beth Lacey (Daly) was a married working mother. The series was set in a fictionalized version of Manhattan's 14th Precinct (known as "Midtown South"). Interestingly, the part of Christine Cagney was originally played by Lorretta Swit in a TV Movie. When the series debuted (as a mid-summer replacement for Lou Grant), Meg Foster played the part for the 6 episodes of the first season, then the show was cancelled in April 1982 because network executivs saw the two lead characters (originally portayed as patrol officers) as being "too butch". The series was reinstated in October of that year after the producers were persuaded to recast the Cagney role with Gless, who seemed a more feminine contrast to Daly's action oriented character. At the end of the second season, in May, 1983, the show was cancelled for a second time due to low ratings, however, thanks to a write-in campaign orchestrated by the show's producers, the show reappeared in a later time slot in March, 1984, and continued on for 4 more seasons. For six consecutive years, one of the two lead actresses won the Emmy for Best Lead Actress in a Drama (four wins for Daly, two for Gless), a winning streak unmatched in any major category by a show. The entire series is available from Hulu (sorry about the commercials), so many more to come. The new library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog

      11/2/16 - Late last night I created a new Terry and the Pirates Theatrical Serial library with all fifteen episodes of the serial. Young explorer Terry Lee and his grown-up sidekick, Pat Ryan, arrive in the Asian jungles in search of Terry's father, Dr. Herbert Lee. The elder Lee is an archaeologist and leader of a scientific expedition seeking evidence of a lost civilization. Soon Terry discovers his father has been kidnapped by an armed pirate gang known as the Tiger Men. Stars: William Tracy as Terry Lee, Granville Owen as Pat Ryan and Joyce Bryant as Normandie Drake. Also, I restored my Captain Midnight Theatrical Serial library with all fifteen episodes of the serial. Both libraries are available in the Theatrical Serials Catalog, which is accessed via the Cartoons, Short Format Films and Unsold Pilots Catalog,

      11/1/16 - Today I added the last nineteen episodes to Season 5 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 several seasons bookmarked, including Seasons 6, 7, 8, 10, 11 and 13 - so lots more to come. This library is located in the Western Shows and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs.

      10/31/16 - Today I added twenty episodes to the My Favorite Martian Library which brings us to the end of Season 2. One Season left to go. These are from Hulu (sorry about the commercials) and the entire series, minus three episodes, are there so many more to come! 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 Funny Guys and the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalogs. The added episodes are all of the ones on the 3rd library page.

      10/30/16 - Today I created a new Brave Eagle Library with four episodes to start. Brave Eagle (1955-1956) is a 26-episode half-hour western television series which aired on CBS. Keith Larsen, who was of Norwegian descent, starred as Brave Eagle, a peaceful young Cheyenne chief. The program was unconventional in that it reflects the Native American viewpoint in the settlement of the American West and was the first series to feature an American Indian as a lead character. A personal note: I remember watching this series when I was 7 years old and I was fascinated by the fact that it was a western that didn't depict a bunch of cowboys. I don't remember much about it but that aspect still stands out in my mind - I never missed an episode! I searched high and low for more episodes, but these 4 were all I found. Hopefully, tha will change. The new library is located in the Western Shows catalog.

      10/29/16 - Today I added ninteen episodes to Season 2 of the F Troop Library which completes the library. F Troop (1965–1967) was a satirical American television sitcom about U.S. soldiers and American Indians in the Wild West during the 1860s that originally aired for two seasons on ABC. The series played fast and loose with historical events and persons, and often parodied them for comical effect. The first season of 34 episodes was broadcast in black-and-white, the second season in color. Stars Forrest Tucker, Larry Storch and Ken Berry. We now have all but one episode (S1, E23) of the full series in the library which is located in the Western Shows and the Funny Guys Catalogs. The added episodes are all of the ones on the 3rd library page.

      10/28/16 - Today I finally decided to create a new The Roaring 20s library with two epiodes of the series to start. In The Roaring 20s (1960-1962), Dorothy Provine stars as Pinky Pinkham, the singer at the Charleston Club, in all forty-five episodes of this hour-long series that deals with newspaper reporters covering crime and gangsters for the fictitious New York Record in the 1920s, , such as Scott Norris (Rex Reason), Pat Garrison (Donald May), Duke Williams (John Dehner), and copy-boy Chris Higby (Gary Vinson). Mike Road played police Lieutenant Joe Switoski. Other stars were James Flavin as Robert Howard and Louise Glenn as Gladys, who appear in thirty-three and thirty episodes, respectively. I have had these 2 episodes bookmarked for over 2 years in the hopes that I would find more of them - but I never have! So I decided to go ahead and post what I've got. The new episode can be found in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog. I also added seven episodes to the Sgt. Preston of the Yukon library. Challenge of the Yukon was an American radio adventure series that began on Detroit's station WXYZ and is an example of a Northern genre story. The series was first heard on February 3, 1938. The title changed from Challenge of the Yukon to Sergeant Preston of the Yukon in November 1951, and remained under that name through the end of the series and into television. The program was an adventure series about Sergeant Frank Preston of the North-West Mounted Police and his lead sled dog, Yukon King, as they fought evildoers in the Northern wilderness during the Gold Rush of the 1890s. The dog received star billing right after Preston, and alongside his horse, Rex. Yukon King had a keen instinct for sensing criminals, and was equally valuable dealing with wild animals, once saving a small child from a wolverine. In 1955, the same year the radio show ended, Sergeant Preston of the Yukon premiered as a television series. Richard Simmons starred as Sgt. Preston, and was supported by Yukon King and Rex, now played by real animals. This library is located in the Action and Adventure Catalog. The added episodes are:

      Vindication
      Pack Ice Justice
      Revenge
      Return Visit
      Stolen Malamute
      The Devil's Roost
      Ten Little Indians

      10/26/16 - Today I restored twenty-one episodes to 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 they recently 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. The 21 current episodes are all ones that were in the original library. This library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog.

      10/24/16 - Today I added the fourteen remaining available episodes of Season 1 to the The Silent Service library. The Silent Service (1957-1958) was a documentary dramatic anthology about the U.S. Navy's submarine fleet. All stories were based on fact and the realism was heightened by actual use of combat footage from the files of the Navy. The stories were varied between the South Pacific during World War II and the Korean War. The series was was narrated by Rear Admiral Thomas M. Dykers, who retired from the Navy in 1949 after twenty-two years of service. He began each episode with this refrain: "Tonight, we bring you another thrilling episode of Silent Service stories, of warfare under the sea." I have 73 of the 78 episodes that make up the complete series bookmarked, so many more to come. The new library can also be found in the War on Film Catalog, accessed via the Feature Films Catalog.

      10/23/16 - Today I added the twenty-four episodes of Season 4 to the Adam-12 library, which completes the library until I can find episodes of later seasons. These are from Hulu - which only has the first 4 seasons. Adam-12 (1968-1975) was a television police drama that followed two police officers of the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), Pete Malloy and Jim Reed, as they rode the streets of Los Angeles in their patrol unit, 1-Adam-12. Created by R. A. Cinader and Jack Webb, also known for creating Dragnet, the series starred Martin Milner and Kent McCord and captured a typical day in the life of a police officer as realistically as possible. The show helped introduce police procedures and jargon to the general public in the United States. This library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog and also in the new Jack Webb Catalog, which can be accessed via the Catalog of Stars.

      10/22/16 - Last Night I added twelve more episodes to 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) 237 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 are scattered throughout the first 10 seasons of the series:

      David Writes a Column
      New Neighbor
      Friend of the Family
      Wedding Anniversary
      A Matter of Inches
      The Bloodhound
      Spring Housecleaning
      Football Hero
      Across the Street
      Music Appreciation
      The Gas Station
      Rick Grades a Test

      10/21/16 - Today I received a request from a viewer to post some episodes of the GE True TV Series. GE True (1962) (also known as General Electric True) was a 33-episode American anthology series sponsored by General Electric. Telecast on CBS, the series presented stories previously published in True magazine. Articles from the magazine were adapted to television by Gene Roddenberry and other screenwriters. Jack Webb produced and hosted the thirty-three episodes during his stint as head of Warner Brothers Television through his Mark VII Limited Company. It happened that I had four episodes bookmarked and have been holding off on posting them in the hopes of finding more episodes to fill out the library a little. I realized that it has been a couple of years since I bookmarked those videos, so after checking that they were still working, I went ahead and created a library with the 4 episodes. It then occurred too me that, since the show was produced and hosted by Jack Webb, I really needed to also create a Jack Webb Catalog to house the new library, plus the two different versions of the Dragnet series already on the site. John Randolph "Jack" Webb (April 2, 1920 – December 23, 1982), also known by the pen name John Randolph, was an American actor, television producer, director, and screenwriter, who is most famous for his role as Sgt. Joe Friday in the Dragnet franchise (which he also created). He was also the founder of his own production company, Mark VII Limited. Webb had a featured role as a crime lab technician in the 1948 film He Walked by Night, based on the real-life murder of a California Highway Patrolman by Erwin Walker. He Walked By Night's thinly veiled fictionalized recounting of the 1946 Walker crime spree gave Webb the idea for Dragnet: a recurring series based on real cases from LAPD police files, featuring authentic depictions of the modern police detective, including methods, mannerisms, and technical language. The GE True library is available in the Television Drama Catalog and also in the Jack Webb Catalog, which can be accessed via the Catalog of Stars.

      10/20/16 - I didn't have a lot of time available today, so I added six 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 added episodes are:

      The Black Pearl
      Isle of Eden
      Passage to Tua
      The Reluctant Hero
      The Pretender
      A Bride for the Captain

      10/19/16 - Today I restored my Boston Blackie TV library with twenty-eight of the 58 episodes that make up the complete series. Boston Blackie is a fictional character created by author Jack Boyle. Blackie, a jewel thief and safecracker in Boyle's stories, became a detective in adaptations for films, radio and television — an "enemy to those who make him an enemy, friend to those who have no friend." Kent Taylor starred in the Ziv-produced half-hour TV series The Adventures of Boston Blackie. Syndicated in September 1951, it ran for 58 episodes, continuing in repeats over the following decade. Lois Collier appeared as Mary Wesley and Frank Orth was Inspector Farraday. The series was set in Los Angeles; Mary and Blackie had a dog named Whitie, and comedy sometimes took precedence over crime. Following on my experience with The Mickey Rooney Show library a few days ago, I decided to go back and look at some of the earliest libraries I built for the site back in the beginning (2010). I was going through the Crime Drama Catalog and Boston Blackie popped up. The library looked fine - I had updated the pages to reflect Season, Episode and Plot Summary info some time ago, but this time I decided to go through and check whether all of the player pages were working. I found, to my dismay, that about 2/3 of them were unplayable because the original files were corrupted. They looked fine if you just opened the pages, but when I tried to actually view the videos they stalled out and gave me a "Corrupted File" error code. So I spent the better part of this morning finding replacements and restoring the pages to working order. I managed to restore all but one of the damaged pages, and in the process found 2 episodes that weren't in the original library, Murder Train and Motorcycle Kid. This library is located in the Boston Blackie Catalog, accessed via the Mystery, Detectives and Crime Drama catalog as well as the Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      10/18/2016 - Today I added the twenty-two episodes of Season 2 to the Stargate SG-1 library. I have one more Season to post. 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 episodes, 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.

      10/17/16 - Late last night I discovered a cache of episodes of The Mickey Rooney Show and added five of them to the library. The Mickey Rooney Show (1954-1955) - also known as Hey, Mulligan - was an American sitcom that aired on NBC. The series starred Mickey Rooney (in his first television role) who was particularly remembered for his starring role in numerous Andy Hardy films made between 1937 and 1958, which overlapped with Hey Mulligan. Rooney starred as Mickey Mulligan, an Irish American television studio page at the fictional International Broadcasting Company in Hollywood. Mulligan aspires through his night studies to become a recognized performer. This library is located in the Mickey Rooney Catalog, which can be accessed via the Funny Guys Cataog, the Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. Finding these episodes presented a quandry for yours truely. The library was one of the earliest ones I created six years or so ago when I first started building the site. I originally found 15 episodes on the Internet Archive, which had been posted by a user who didn't know anything about the series, like episode titles, etc., so he (or she) had posted them as "Miscellaneous" episodes and simply numbered them. At the time, I was just getting into the Classic TV genre and didn't know about the databases, such as the Internet Movie Database, where I now regularly go to find such information. I posted the episodes using the IA users' designations, and kind of forgot about the library until last night. So I started going through the shows I had in order to give them there proper titles. Some series' have episode titles shown at the beginning of the show, but most do not. I have developed a process wherein I skip too the end of each episode and look at the cast list. I usually pick a name from the bottom of the list and look up that actor's name on iMDB. I then conduct a search for the name of the series in the actors credit listings, and when it pops up, there is the episode title. If the actor appears in more then one episode, I will try another name and usually am able to find one who only appeared in one episode of the series. Going through this process last night I was able to put the correct titles on all of the episodes in the library, and also determined that five of ones I had found were not part of the original library, so I added them to it. For those who may have watched the episodes in the original library the added ones are:

      Disc Jockey
      Diamond in the Rough
      The Executive
      The Fur Coat
      Friends and Foes

      This evening I received a request from a young viewer to post some ABC Afterschool Specials episodes. I went out and looked around and was surprised that I couldn't find that many of them. I did manage to dig up eleven episodes covering a period from 1977 to 1991. The ABC Afterschool Special (1972-1997) was an American television anthology series that aired on ABC, usually in the late afternoon on week days. Most episodes were dramatically presented situations, often controversial, of interest to children and teenagers. Several episodes were either in animated form or presented as documentaries. Topics included illiteracy, substance abuse and teenage pregnancy. The series won 51 Daytime Emmy Awards during its 25-year run. The new library can be found in the Television Drama and the Kid Show Catalogs.

      10/16/16 - Today I added twenty-five episodes to the Richard Diamond: Private Detective Library. Dick Powell starred in the Richard Diamond, Private Detective radio series as a light-hearted detective who often ended the episodes singing to his girlfriend. Powell's company, Four Star Television, produced the TV series, which premiered on CBS but was later telecast for its last year on NBC. David Janssen, in his first series television vehicle, starred as Diamond, a hard-boiled private detective in the film noir tradition. His secretary, "Sam," was shown only from the waist down to display her beautiful legs. Initially, these were the legs of Mary Tyler Moore for seven episodes, but later the legs of other actresses were seen. In the noirish opening sequence, clad in hat, suit, and tie, he walked down a dimly lit street toward the camera and lit up a cigarette, the light from which showed his face. This library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog. The added episodes are:

      Mickey Farmer
      One Foot in the Grave
      Snow Queen
      The Sport
      Pack Rat
      Body of the Crime
      Soft Touch
      Boomerang Bait
      Matador Murder
      Murder at the Mansion
      Marineland Mystery
      Charity Affair
      Two for Paradise
      Crown of Silla
      Jukebox
      The Limping Man
      Hideout
      Rough Cut
      Family Affair
      Design for Murder
      Hoodlum
      Act of Grace
      Bookie
      One Dead Cat
      Dead to the World

      10/15/16 - Today I added twenty episodes to the Get Smart Library which completes Season 2. 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 Funny Guys 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. I have most of the Season 3 episodes from Daily Motion, so more to come.

      10/14/16 - Today I added the twenty-eight available episodes to Season 4 of The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp library. I have watched about a half-dozen of these shows and highly recommend it. 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. I have most of the episodes for Season 4 - 6 bookmarked. So many more to come. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Western Shows Catalog.

      10/12/16 - Today I was able to restore the final twenty-three episodes to the Peter Gunn Library. Peter Gunn (1958-1961) was an American private eye television series which aired on the NBC and (later) ABC television networks. The series was created by Blake Edwards (who, on occasion, was also writer and director). The title character, played by Craig Stevens, is a well-dressed private investigator whose hair is always in place and who loves cool jazz. Where other gumshoes might be coarse, Peter Gunn is a sophisticate with expensive tastes. He operates in a nameless, fictional riverfront city and can usually be found at Mother's, a smoky wharfside jazz club that he uses as his "office", often meeting clients there. The restored library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Mystery, Detectives and Crime Drama Catalogs. The added episodes are:

      The Frog
      Lady Winbell's Fan
      Bullet for the Boy
      Kill from Nowhere
      Vendetta
      The Coffin
      The Portrait
      The Young Assassins
      The Murder Clause
      Mask of Murder
      The Maître d'
      The Judgement
      Across the Board
      Tramp Steamer
      Long Green Kill
      Take 5 for Murder
      Dream Big, Dream Deadly
      Sepi
      A Tender Touch
      The Royal Roust
      Bullit in Escrow
      I Know It's Murder
      Cry Love Cry Murder

      10/10/16 - Last night I was surprised and pleased to discover the first twenty-three episodes of Maverick on Daily Motion. This is the first time I have ever found any episodes of the series so this morning I created a library to hold them. 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. The new library is located in the Western TV Shows catalog. I will be very surprised if these videos don't vanish in short order, so watch 'em while we got 'em!

      10/9/16 - It occured too me that I haven't done anything in my News/Documentary (Reality) Programs Catalog in quite some time, so I looked around in my Bookmarks and found a 1957 series called The Silent Service, and created a new library with twenty episodes of the series to start. The Silent Service (1957-1958) was a documentary dramatic anthology about the U.S. Navy's submarine fleet. All stories were based on fact and the realism was heightened by actual use of combat footage from the files of the Navy. The stories were varied between the South Pacific during World War II and the Korean War. The series was was narrated by Rear Admiral Thomas M. Dykers, who retired from the Navy in 1949 after twenty-two years of service. He began each episode with this refrain: "Tonight, we bring you another thrilling episode of Silent Service stories, of warfare under the sea." The new library can also be found in the War on Film Catalog, accessed via the Feature Films Catalog.

      10/8/16 - Today I made a major expansion of the The Adventures of Kit Carson library, adding twenty-one episodes to the library, which more then doubles it's size. The Adventures of Kit Carson (1951-1955) was an American Western series that aired in syndication, originally sponsored by Coca-Cola. As were most western shows at the time, the program was intended for children, and presented a fictionalized version of Carson and his life. In the series, Kit Carson roamed the West with his companion El Toro, seeking to help those in need. Kit rode a horse named Apache. It starred Bill Williams in the title role as frontier scout Christopher "Kit" Carson. Don Diamond co-starred as "El Toro", Carson's Mexican companion. Thie library is located in the Western TV Shows catalog. The added episodes are:

      Road to Monterey
      Enemies of the West
      Law Of The Six Guns
      Law of the Frontier
      The Hero of Hermosa
      Return of Trigger Dawson
      Badman of Brisco
      Feud in San Filipe
      Border Corsairs
      Bandit's Blade
      Snake River Trapper
      Black Springs
      Wild Horses
      Fort Hazard
      Powder Smoke Trail
      Trouble In Tuscarora
      Pledge To Danger
      Singing Wires
      Broken Spur
      Ventura Feud
      Bad Men of Marysville

      10/7/16 - Today I added the first thirteen available episodes to Season 5 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 several seasons bookmarked, including Seasons 6, 7, 8, 10, 11 and 13 - so lots more to come. This library is located in the Western Shows and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs.

      10/5/16 - Today I added fifteen episodes to The Doris Day Show library, bringing us to the end of Season 3. 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. The added episodes are all of the ones on the 4th library page.

      10/4/16 - Today I decided to work on some libraries where I only had a few episodes to add to them. I was kind of waiting to find more to add, but it has been several months now and nothing is showing up for any of them, so I went ahead and added Return From the Shadows and The Raiders to the Broken Arrow library, which greatly increases the number of episodes from two to five! Broken Arrow was a fictionalized account of the historical relationship between Indian agent Tom Jeffords, played by John Lupton, and the Chiricahua Apache chief Cochise, portrayed by Michael Ansara. The series was based on the novel Blood Brother by Elliott Arnold, which was made into the movie Broken Arrow in 1950. This library is located in the Western Shows Catalog. I also added Stranglehold, The Savage Payoff and Bullet of Hate to the Decoy library. Decoy (also titled Decoy Police Woman) was a groundbreaking American crime drama television series created for syndication and initially broadcast with thirty-nine 30-minute black-and-white episodes. It was the first American police series with a female protagonist. The series starred Beverly Garland as Casey Jones, a female police officer who is often assigned to work undercover (hence becoming the "decoy" of the title). The cast changed each week with Garland the only main continuing character, although there were several recurring characters, mostly her commanding officer and immediate colleagues. And finally, I added Place of His Own, Go Ahead and Jump, Night at Lark Cottage and Tunnel of Fear to the Four Star Playhouse library. Four Star Playhouse (1952–1956) featured individual episodes consisting of everything from comedy to drama. The original premise was that Charles Boyer, Ida Lupino, David Niven, and Dick Powell would take turns starring in episodes. This library is located in the Television Drama Catalog.

      10/3/16 - Today I added eight more episodes too 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) 225 episodes, it is also one of the largest libraries on the site. A few years ago I went through it and rearranged it into proper order, and also added season, episode and plot summary information. 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 are:

      Ozzie's Night Out
      Gentleman David
      Wally Garage Door
      David's Engagement
      Dave and the Teenager
      A Message from Kris
      The Ghost Town
      Waiting for Joe

      10/2/16 - Late last night I restored another lost Hulu collection with ninety-one of the 114 episodes of the Peter Gunn Library. Peter Gunn (1958-1961) was an American private eye television series which aired on the NBC and (later) ABC television networks. The series was created by Blake Edwards (who, on occasion, was also writer and director). The title character, played by Craig Stevens, is a well-dressed private investigator whose hair is always in place and who loves cool jazz. Where other gumshoes might be coarse, Peter Gunn is a sophisticate with expensive tastes. He operates in a nameless, fictional riverfront city and can usually be found at Mother's, a smoky wharfside jazz club that he uses as his "office", often meeting clients there. The restored library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Mystery, Detectives and Crime Drama Catalogs.

      10/1/16 - Today I restored my 3rd Rock from the Sun Library from DailyMotion with one-hundred and twenty-seven of the 139 episodes that make up the full 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. This is the 2nd time I have restored this library. The first I went from YouTube videos to Hulu. This was another of the libraries that have recently gone south due to Hulu's change of their business model. In this case, the collection was moved from being free videos to requiring a paid subscription. I should also mention that if you are offended by "dick jokes" you may want to avoid reading the titles of these episodes, whivh almost alays 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. The restored library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

      9/29/16 - Today I added all twenty-four episodes of Season 2 to the Mary Tyler Moore Show library. The first 3 Seasons are available on Hulu, so one more season to come! The Mary Tyler Moore Show (1970–1977) was an American television sitcom created by James L. Brooks and Allan Burns that aired on CBS. The program was a television breakthrough, with the first never-married, independent career woman as the central character. It is one of the most acclaimed television programs in US television history. In 2013, the Writers Guild of America ranked The Mary Tyler Moore Show No. 6 in its list of the 101 Best Written TV Series of All Time. This library is located in the Mary Tyler Moore Catalog, which is available in the Whacky Dames Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      9/28/16 - Today I added all twety-six episodes of Season 6 too the Daniel Boone library. This completes the library with 144 of the 165 episodes of the complete series, until I find the missing episodes. Daniel Boone was an American action-adventure television series starring Fess Parker as Daniel Boone that aired on NBC. Ed Ames co-starred as Mingo, Boone's Cherokee friend, for the first four seasons of the series. Albert Salmi portrayed Boone's companion Yadkin in season one only. Daniel Boone was one of two iconic historical figures played by Fess Parker. He previously appeared as Davy Crockett in a series of episodes of the Walt Disney anthology television series, to considerable acclaim amid the launch of a national craze. For his role as Boone, which lasted much longer, but had far less impact, Parker again wore a raccoon-hide coonskin cap, which had been popularized years earlier by the Crockett shows. Daniel Boone's headgear was even mentioned in the show's theme song: "From the coonskin cap on the top of ol' Dan....". Efforts had been made to secure the rights to Crockett from Walt Disney, but Disney refused to sell, so the series wound up being about Boone instead. The new library is located in the Western Shows Catalog and the Action and Adventure Catalog.

      9/27/16 - Today I added Season 5 (thirty-four episodes) to the The Donna Reed Show library. 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. This effectively completes the library. Although the series actually had 8 seasons, these are from Hulu, which only has 5 seasons in thier collection. I will keep an eye out for more, but have never found any except those on Hulu. The library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

      9/26/16 - Today I added nine episodes too 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. This is the first time since May that I have found any episodes of the series - I will keep looking for more. The added episodes are:

      The Grandma Caper
      Honey From The Bee
      Abra Cadaver
      A Bargain In Tombs
      The Widow
      Downbeat
      Canine Caper
      Mr. Paradise
      The Space Caper

      9/25/16 - Today I added fourteen episodes to Season 1 of the The Rifleman library after discovering that Hulu has expanded their collection of the series. 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:

      The Brother-in-Law
      Eight Hours to Die
      Duel of Honor
      The Safe Guard
      The Sister
      New Orleans Menace
      Apprentice Sheriff
      The Angry Gun
      Young Englishman
      Sheridan Story
      The Retired Gun
      The Rifleman
      Shivaree

      9/24/16 - Today I created a new T.H.E. Cat library with ten episodes to start. T.H.E. Cat (1966–1967) was an American action drama that aired on NBC. Robert Loggia starred as the title character, Thomas Hewitt Edward Cat. Loggia played a retired circus acrobat and reformed thief, having spent an unspecified term in prison, and of Gypsy heritage. In the mold of famed private-eye Peter Gunn and the waterfront bar 'Mother's', Cat operated out of the 'Casa Del Gato' (House Of The Cat) in San Francisco, of which he was part owner. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Mystery, Detectives and Crime Drama Catalogs. I also added four more episodes to 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 should mention that unfortunately some of these epidoes have had their opening credits edited out rather sloppily. In some cases they have managed to lop off the the first few seconds of the episode. It doesn't really ruin the experience, but it is kind of annoying. This library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog. The added episodes are: Hollywood, The Court Martial, Flying Saucers and The Genius.

      9/23/16 - Today I added all twenty-four episodes of Season 2 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.

      9/22/16 - Today I added seventeen episodes to The Lone Ranger library including Six Gun's Legacy and Pay Dirt from Season 1, plus all of the Seasons 2, 3 and 4 episodes currently in the library. I also started dividing up the library into proper Season order. 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.

      9/21/16 - Today I added Season 3 (twenty-six episodes) to the Dragnet (1967) 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). One more season to go.

      9/20/16 - Today I added nineteen episodes too the The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp library with the two available episodes of Season 2 and seventeen from Season 3. I have watched about a half-dozen of these shows and highly recommend it. 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. I have most of the episodes for Season 4 - 6 bookmarked. So many more to come. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Western Shows Catalog.

      9/18/16 - This morning I restored my The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis library, (which was originally from Hulu) from Daily Motion. The series revolved around the life of teenager/young adult Dobie Gillis (Dwayne Hickman), who, along with his best friend, beatnik, Maynard G. Krebs (Bob Denver), struggles against the forces of his life - high school, the military, college, and his parents (Frank Faylen and Florida Friebus) - as he aspires to attain both wealth and dates with girls. This library is located in the Funny Guys, the Family Comedies and Dramas and the Bob Denver Catalogs. More good news is that I now have most of Season 4 bookmarked. These episodes were not in the original library.

      9/17/16 - Today I added thirty-nine episodes to the The Dick Van Dyke Show library, bringing us to the end of Season 3. 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 Funny Guys Catalogs, and can also be accessed via the Mary Tyler Moore Catalog. The added episodes start with The Sam Pomerantz Scandals (Season 2, Episode 24) and include all of the remaining episodes of Season 2 and Season 3. Most of these episodes are from Hulu.

      9/15/16 - Today I added ten more episodes too 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) 217 episodes, it is also one of the largest libraries on the site. A few years ago I went through it and rearranged it into proper order, and also added season, episode and plot summary information. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added episodes are:

      The Honest Face
      Ricky's Car
      The Puppy
      Like Father, Like Son
      Dave's Car Payments
      E.S.P.
      Old Friend of June's
      Women's Club Bazaar
      A Bedtime Story
      Kris Plays Cupid

      9/13/16 - Today I restored my Lassie Library, which I discovered had been taken down from Hulu recently. This is the "Lassie and Timmy" version, by the way. The earler version, also known as "Jeff's Collie", was still intact. Anyway, not only did I restore the original library, but I was able to add the thiry-six available episodes of Season 6. Between 1954–1973, the television series, Lassie was broadcast, with Lassie initially residing on a farm with a young male master. In the middle of the 5th Season, Lassie's original master, Jeff Miller (Tommy Rettig), left the series and was replaced by young Timmy, who had joined the series at the beginning of the season as an orphan boy who came to live with the Millers. Season 6 was the first to star Timmy Martin (Jon Provost), who continued in the role through Season 10. In the eleventh season, it changed to U.S. Forest Service rangers as her companions, then the collie was on her own for a season before ending the series with Lassie residing at a ranch for orphaned children. The long-running series was the recipient of two Emmy Awards before it was canceled in 1973. This library is located in the Lassie Catalog, which can be accessed via the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog, Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      9/12/16 - Last night I realized that 2 of the 3 libraries included in the Paul Henning Catalog (The Beverly Hillbillies and Petticoat Junction) were complete, so decided to add Season 4 (twenty-six episodes) to the Green Acres library, but discovered that Hulu has rescinded their embed-sharing capability - in other words there is no available link that gives you the embed code. My first thought was that I would no longer be able to use Hulu videos on the site, but then I studied the problem for a little bit and realized there was a work around and figured out how to get the code through my own initiative. So I have expanded the library as planned. 2 Seasons left to complete the 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. There are 170 episodes on Hulu (sorry about the commercials), so many more to come. This library is available via the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. By the way, another change that has been made to the Hulu site is that you now are required to establish a Hulu account, and log into it in order to watch the free videos there. The good news is that you DON'T NEED A LOG-IN to watch Hulu videos on my site!

      9/11/16 - Today I added the last sixteen available episodes too the The Beverly Hillibillies Library. The added episodes include all of the Seasons 7, 8 and 9 episodes and completes the library until I find more of the missing ones. 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. This library is locate in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

      9/10/16 - Today I added the twelve available episodes of Season 8 of The Andy Griffith Show Library. This completes the library until I find more of the missing episodes. 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 Funny Guys Catalog and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added episodes are all of Season 8 of the library.

      9/7/16 - Today I added twenty-two episodes to the F Troop Library taking us too the 12th episodes of Season 2. F Troop (1965–1967) was a satirical American television sitcom about U.S. soldiers and American Indians in the Wild West during the 1860s that originally aired for two seasons on ABC. The series played fast and loose with historical events and persons, and often parodied them for comical effect. The first season of 34 episodes was broadcast in black-and-white, the second season in color. Stars Forrest Tucker, Larry Storch and Ken Berry. I have all but one episode (S1, E23) of the full series so many more to come! The new library is located in the Western Shows and the Funny Guys Catalogs. The added episodes are all of the ones on the 2nd library page.

      9/6/16 - Upon hearing this morning of the passing of Hugh O'Brian at the age of 91, I decided to see if I could find any Wyatt Earp episodes. I am happy to announce that I created a new The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp library with the twenty-six available episodes of Season 1. 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 and featured Hugh O'Brian in the title role. O'Brian was chosen for the role in part because of his physical resemblance to early photographs of Wyatt Earp. Unfortunately I have only found 2 episodes of Season 2 thus far - but I have most of the episodes for Season 3 - 6 bookmarked. So.many more to come. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Western Shows Catalog.

      9/3/16 - Today I added Season 2 to The Saint library, which is as far as I can go until I find some later episodes. 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.

      9/1/16 - Today I added the 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) 207 episodes, it is also one of the largest libraries on the site. A few years ago I went through it and rearranged it into proper order, and also added season, episode and plot summary information. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added episodes are:

      Harriet's Secret Admirer
      Man without a Family
      Closed Circuit
      Code of Honor
      The Composite Girl
      David Hires a Secretary
      2 Small Boys and a Dog
      Dancing Lessons
      The Maid of Honor
      The Fraternity Lease

      8/31/16 - Last night I decided to look through my Hulu libraries to see if they were all still intact and discovered that Hulu had taken down their collection of It Takes a Thief. Fortunately, the library on my site is mostly composed of YouTube videos which I posted over 2 years ago. I had used the Hulu videos to "fill in the blanks" so to speak and had managed to post the entire series. Last night I looked for the series on Daily Motion and was able to restore all but a few of them. It Takes a Thief was an American action-adventure television series that aired on ABC for three seasons between January 9, 1968, and March 24, 1970. It starred Robert Wagner in his television debut as sophisticated thief Alexander Mundy, who works for the U.S. government in return for his release from prison. For most of the series, Malachi Throne played Noah Bain, Mundy's boss. It was among the last of the 1960s spy television genre, although Mission: Impossible continued for several more years. It Takes A Thief was inspired by, though not based upon, the 1955 Cary Grant motion picture To Catch a Thief, directed by Alfred Hitchcock; both of their titles stem from the English proverb "It takes a thief to catch a thief." This library s located in the Action and Adventure and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

      8/30/16 - Today I added eighteen episodes to the Get Smart Library which completes Season 1 and takes us too the 9th episode of Season 2. 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 Funny Guys 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. I have most of the Season 1, 2 and 3 episodes from Daily Motion, so many more to come.

      8/29/16 - Late last night I discovered that Hulu had taken down their The Lone Ranger library without any notice. I'd had 33 of the series episodes, mostly from Hulu. I went out and searched for episodes on Daily Motion and the Internet Archive and found enough of them that I was able to restore the library with thirty episodes. In the process I found a number of episodes that weren't in the original library, including several from Season 5 of the series, which were filmed in color. The new episodes are the last 8 in the 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.

      8/28/16 - Today I added all twenty-five episodes of Season 2 to the Mannix library. Mannix was an American television detective series that ran from 1967 to 1975 on CBS. The title character, Joe Mannix, is a private investigator. He is played by Mike Connors. During the first season of the series, Joe Mannix worked for a large Los Angeles detective agency called Intertect. From the second season on, Mannix worked on his own with the assistance of his loyal secretary Peggy Fair, a police officer's widow played by Gail Fisher – one of the first African American actresses to have a regular series role. He also has assistance from the L.A. police department, the two most prominent officers being Lieutenant Art Malcolm (portrayed by Ward Wood) and Lieutenant Adam Tobias (portrayed by Robert Reed). Other police contacts were Lieutenant George Kramer (Larry Linville), who had been the partner of Peggy's late husband, and Lieutenant Dan Ives (Jack Ging). While Mannix was not generally known as a show that explored socially relevant topics, several episodes had topical themes, starting in season two, which had episodes featuring compulsive gambling, deaf and blind characters who were instrumental in solving cases in spite of their physical limitations, and episodes that focused on racism against Blacks and Hispanics. The first two seasons are all I have found of this 8 Season series so far, but I will keep looking for more of them. This library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

      I also added seven films to the Comedy Films library. The added films are:

      Free and Easy (1931)
      One Thrilling Night (1942)
      The Last Three (1943)
      Bees in Paradise (1944)
      Heading for Heaven (1947)
      Sin of Harold Diddlebock (1947)
      Willie and Joe Back at The Front (1952)

      8/27/16 - Just to get away from the Feature Film Catalog for a while I decided to post all twenty-six episodes of Season 5 to the Daniel Boone library. Daniel Boone was an American action-adventure television series starring Fess Parker as Daniel Boone that aired on NBC. Ed Ames co-starred as Mingo, Boone's Cherokee friend, for the first four seasons of the series. Albert Salmi portrayed Boone's companion Yadkin in season one only. Daniel Boone was one of two iconic historical figures played by Fess Parker. He previously appeared as Davy Crockett in a series of episodes of the Walt Disney anthology television series, to considerable acclaim amid the launch of a national craze. For his role as Boone, which lasted much longer, but had far less impact, Parker again wore a raccoon-hide coonskin cap, which had been popularized years earlier by the Crockett shows. Daniel Boone's headgear was even mentioned in the show's theme song: "From the coonskin cap on the top of ol' Dan....". Efforts had been made to secure the rights to Crockett from Walt Disney, but Disney refused to sell, so the series wound up being about Boone instead. I have the complete series (6 Seasons) bookmarked, so one season left to go. The new library is located in the Western Shows Catalog and the Action and Adventure Catalog.

      I finished with that and had a some time to kill so I went ahead and added four films to the SciFi Film Catalog. The added films are:

      Aelita: Queen of Mars (1924)
      Hollow Triumph (1948)
      The Flying Saucer (1950)
      Beyond the Time Barrier (1960)

      8/26/16 - I added seven films to the Action Adventure Film library from the 1930s, 1940s and 1970s. I should mention that these are all from bookmarks that I collected back around 2010 - the fact that the videos are still in place after about 6 years tels me they will likely be around for quite a while. The added films are:
      Picture Brides (1934)
      The Devil on Horseback (1936)
      Jungle Man (1941)
      Swamp Fire (1946)
      Queen of the Amazons (1947)
      Black Brigade (1973)
      Death Race 2000 (1975)

      8/24/16 - Still adding movies - today I worked in the Horror Film library and posted fifteen horror feature films from the early 1930s though the mid-to-late 1970s. These are all from the Internet Archive, so they will likely last a while. The new additions include:

      The Phantom Express (1932)
      The Ghoul (1933)
      Cross Streets (1934)a>
      Man with Two Lives (1942)
      The White Gorilla (1945)a>
      Frankenstein's Daughter (1958)
      Night of the Blood Beast (1958)
      The Devil's Partner (1961)
      Creature From The Haunted Sea (1961)
      Night Tide (1961)
      Trauma (1962)
      The Yesterday Machine (1963)
      Satan's Harvest (1970)
      Devil Times Five (1974)
      Snowbeast (1977)

      8/23/16 - Today I decided to carry on with expanding my movie libraries by adding fifteen films to the Dramatic Film library. I added 2 films from 1930 and the rest run though the 1930s and 1940s and ends with one from 1960. The added films are:

      Paradise Island (1930)
      Sin Takes A Holiday (1930)
      Law of the Sea (1931)
      Out Of Singapore (1932)
      Unholy Love (1932)
      The World Accuses (1934)
      Jane Eyre (1934)
      The Scarlet Letter (1934)
      Port of Lost Dreams (1934)
      I Conquer the Sea (1936)
      That Gang Of Mine (1940)
      49th Parallel (1941)
      Angel on My Shoulder (1946)
      Johnny O' Clock (1947)
      The Beatniks (1960)

      8/22/16 - Today it occurred too me that I haven't added any movies to the site in quite a while, so I decided to add eighteen films to the Crime Drama Film library. Many of these are of the "Film Noir" catagory and range from a 1929 murder mystery to a 1959 crime story about crooked beatnicks! The added films are:

      The Greene Murder Case (1929)
      X Marks The Spot (1931)
      Grief Street (1931)
      The King Murder (1932)
      The Sphinx (1933)
      Curtain at Eight (1933)
      The Kennel Murder Case (1933)
      The Phantom Broadcast (1933)
      Undercover Men (1934)
      Valley of Wanted Men (1935)
      Behind The Green Lights (1935)
      While New York Sleeps (1938)
      You're Out of Luck (1940)
      Murder on Lenox Avenue (1941)
      Here Comes Trouble (1948)
      The Devils Sleep (1949)
      Cause for Alarm! (1951)
      The Rebel Set (1959)

      8/21/16 - Today I created a new The Waltons library with twenty-three of the twenty-four episodes that make up Season 1 of the series. These are all I have found so far but I will keep looking for more of them. The show ran for 9 seasons. 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. I have to admit that I never watched this show - in 1971, when it premiered, I was living in Berkeley, CA, pursuing my musical career, and didn't even own a TV. The new library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

      8/20/16 - Today I created a new The Saint library with all twelve episodes of Season 1. 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. I urrently have all 27 episodes of Season 2 bookmarked, so more to come. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

      8/17/16 - Today I created a new The Prisoner library with all seventeen episodes of the complete series. The Prisoner (1967–1968) was a 17-episode British television series first broadcast in the United Kingdom. The series follows an unnamed British former secret agent (played by Patrick McGoohan - also the star of Secret Agent) who is abducted and held prisoner in a mysterious coastal village resort, where his captors try to find out why he abruptly resigned from his job. His prisoner designation is "Number 6". The new library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

      8/16/16 - Today I added the available episodes (twenty-one of them) to Season 3 of Stargate SG-1. 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 episodes, 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.

      8/15/16 - Today I created a new Mission: Impossible Library with all twenty-eight episodes of Season 1 of the series. Mission: Impossible was an American television series that was created and initially produced by Bruce Geller. It chronicled 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. The series was filmed and financed by Desilu Productions, and aired on the CBS network from September 1966 to March 1973. The series was reprised in 1988 for two seasons on ABC, retaining only Graves in the cast. It also inspired a series of theatrical motion pictures starring Tom Cruise, beginning in 1996. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

      8/13/16 - Today I added twenty-eight of the thirty episodes of Season 7 to the Andy Griffith Show Library. One season left to go. 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 Funny Guys Catalog and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

      8/12/16 - Today, at the suggestion of a Facebook corrospondent, I restored my 'Way Out library with ten of the fouteen episodes that make up the entire series. 'Way Out (note that the on-screen title begins with an apostrophe) was a 1961 fantasy and science fiction television anthology series hosted by writer Roald Dahl. The macabre, black-and-white, 25-minute shows were introduced by Dahl, his face projected in a disconcerting hall of mirrors effect, dryly delivering a brief introductory monologue, expounding on such unusual subjects as undertakers or frogs or murdering a romantic rival with ground tiger's whiskers. Critical notices at the time were extremely good, especially for Dahl's comedic commentaries. While the series garnered high ratings in urban areas, it fared poorly in the hinterlands and was canceled after 14 episodes. The show was one of the last weekly dramatic television series produced in New York City. This library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog.

      8/11/16 - Today I added fourteen episodes to the Topper TV Series library. Topper (1953-1955) was an American fantasy sitcom based on the 1937 film Topper, which was based on two novels Topper and Topper Takes a Trip by Thorne Smith. The series was broadcast on CBS and starred Leo G. Carroll in the title role. It finished at #24 in the Nielsen ratings for the 1954-1955 season. Topper also earned an Emmy nomination for Best Situation Comedy in 1954. Sophisticated but stuffy Cosmo Topper (Carroll) is the vice president of a bank, married to sweet (but rather clueless) Henrietta (Lee Patrick). They live in a Los Angeles house they bought from the estate of a young couple, George and Marion Kerby (real life husband and wife Robert Sterling and Anne Jeffreys), who died after being swept away by an avalanche. A St. Bernard, Neil, who attempted to rescue them also died with them. Topper discovers his new home is haunted by the former occupants as well as Neil. Strangely, he is the only one able to see or hear them. Neil, the St. Bernard, loves martinis and a running gag is the invisible dog lapping up the drink. This library is located in the Topper Catalog, which can be accessed via the Funny Guys Catalog, the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog, Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. The added episodes are:

      Astrology
      Trip to Lisbon
      The Package
      The Wedding
      Preparations for Europe
      Theatricals
      Topper Tells All
      County Fair
      The Chess Player
      Topper Goes to Washington
      Topper Lives Again
      Topper's Accident
      Topper's Hits the Road
      Topper at the Races

      8/10/16 - Today I created a new Bad News Bears library with twenty-two of the 26 epiosdes that make up the full series. The Bad News Bears (1979-1980), based on the 1976 movie by the same name, was the comic misadventures of a misfit Little League baseball team. In the television version, Jack Warden portrayed former minor-leaguer Morris Buttermaker, the coach of the Hoover Junior High Bears. Catherine Hicks played Hoover Junior High principal Dr. Emily Rappant. Phillip Richard Allen played Roy Turner, the coach of the dreaded rival Lions. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

      8/9/16 - Today I added ten 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) 197 episodes, it is also one of the largest libraries on the site. A few years ago I went through it and rearranged it into proper order, and also added season, episode and plot summary information. In recent years quite a few of these episodes have appeared on the Internet Archive, but most of them were duplicates of episodes I already had in the library. These 10 are the first I have added since June. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added episodes are:

      David Loses His Poise
      Ozzie's Daughters
      The Runaways
      The Tent
      His Brother's Girl
      Table and the Painting
      Rick Counts the Ballots
      Rick's Broken Arm
      Rick, the Milkman
      Rick, the Host

      8/4/16 - Today I decided to do some work in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog and added seven episodes to the Michael Shayne Library, which more than triples the size of the library from 3 episodes to 10. Michael "Mike" Shayne is a fictional private detective character created during the late 1930s by writer Brett Halliday. The character appeared in a series of seven films starring Lloyd Nolan for Twentieth Century Fox, four films from the low-budget Producers Releasing Corporation with Hugh Beaumont, a radio series under a variety of titles between 1944 and 1953, and later (1960-1961) in this 32-episode NBC television series starring Richard Denning in the title role. This collection includes the concept pilot which aired as a stand-alone episode in an anthology show called 'Decision' in 1958, and starred Mark Stevens in the title role, and also the series pilot, with Denning, which aired as the 8th episode of the series. This is another of my earliest libraries, so in the process I added season, episode and plot summaries too the existing episodes. The added episodes are:

      Three Men on a Raft
      Michael Shayne, This Is It
      Murder Plays Charades
      Spotlight on a Corpse
      Murder 'Round My Wrist
      The Heiress
      Murder at the Convention

      While I was at it I also added eight episodes 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. The added episodes are:

      Unfit Mother
      The Arsonist
      Hot Rod
      Deep Ditch
      Your Witness
      The Hitchhiker
      Brutality
      End of the Line

      8/3/16 - Today I added the available Season 4 episodes (thirty-twp of them) to 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 several full seasons bookmarked, including Seasons 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11 and 13 - so lots more to come. This library is located in the Western Shows and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs.

      7/28/16 - Today I created a new East Side/West Side library with all twenty-six episodes of the complete series. In East Side/West Side (1963-1964), centers on George C. Scott in the role of Neil Brock, a New York City social worker who worked for the private agency Community Welfare Service, with his secretary, Jane Foster, played by actress Cicely Tyson. Episodes of East Side/West Side covered topics relevant to the inner city, with many controversial issues explored. A typical example came in the first two episodes, when Brock investigated a prostitute and her child ("The Sinner"), followed by a story involving statutory rape (“Age of Consent”). Though it won critical praise, it also generated some controversy. TV Guide ranked it #6 on their 2013 list of 60 shows that were "Cancelled Too Soon". In an effort to open up the number of possible stories, Brock resigned from his job in the latter portion of the 1963–64 season to work for a New York congressman, Charles W. Hanson (Linden Chiles). The character played by Cicely Tyson soon disappeared and Barbara Feldon was introduced as Brock's girlfriend. However, despite the high quality of both the writing and acting, the show's penchant for taking on touchy topics forced many potential advertisers to avoid sponsorship of the show, while a number of local stations across the country also chose not to present the program to their viewers. It is said that CBS programming head James Aubrey clashed with Scott regarding the direction of the show, which also was a factor in the cancellation. The new library is located in the Television Drama Catalog.

      7/26/16 - Today I added twelve episodes to the Sky King library. Sky King was an American radio and TV series. Its lead character was Arizona rancher and aircraft pilot Schuyler "Sky" King. The series may have been based on a true-life personality of the 1930s, Jack Cones, the "Flying Constable" of Twentynine Palms in San Bernardino County, California, although this notion is unverified. The series had strong western elements. King usually captured criminals and spies and found lost hikers--though he did so with the use of his airplane, the Songbird. The airplanes flown by King changed during the course of the TV series, but were still known as the Songbird. The later 1955 version aircraft's make and model type number was clearly depicted as a "Cessna 310B" and was prominently displayed during the closing titles. King and his niece Penny (and sometimes Clipper, his nephew) lived on the Flying Crown Ranch, near the fictitious town of Grover, Arizona. Penny and Clipper were also pilots, although they were inexperienced and looked to their uncle for guidance. Penny was an accomplished air racer, rated as a multiengine pilot, whom Sky trusted to fly the Songbird. This library is located on the Action and Adventure Catalog. The added episodes are:

      The Circus Clown
      Dead Man's Will
      Cindy, Come Home
      Rodeo Decathlon
      Abracadabra
      Triple Exposure
      The Haunted Castle
      Danger at the Sawmill
      Sleight of Hand
      Stop That Train
      Money Has Wings
      Dead Giveaway

      7/21/16 - Today I added Season 4 (Twenty-six episodes) to the Daniel Boone Library. Daniel Boone was an American action-adventure television series starring Fess Parker as Daniel Boone that aired on NBC. Ed Ames co-starred as Mingo, Boone's Cherokee friend, for the first four seasons of the series. Albert Salmi portrayed Boone's companion Yadkin in season one only. Daniel Boone was one of two iconic historical figures played by Fess Parker. He previously appeared as Davy Crockett in a series of episodes of the Walt Disney anthology television series, to considerable acclaim amid the launch of a national craze. For his role as Boone, which lasted much longer, but had far less impact, Parker again wore a raccoon-hide coonskin cap, which had been popularized years earlier by the Crockett shows. Daniel Boone's headgear was even mentioned in the show's theme song: "From the coonskin cap on the top of ol' Dan....". Efforts had been made to secure the rights to Crockett from Walt Disney, but Disney refused to sell, so the series wound up being about Boone instead. I have the complete series (6 Seasons) bookmarked, so many more to come! The new library is located in the Western Shows Catalog and the Action and Adventure Catalog.

      7/19/16 - This evening I was able to restore my Batman Theatrical Serial library with all fifteen installments of the serial. Batman is a 1943 black-and-white 15-chapter theatrical serial from Columbia Pictures. The story line involves the Batman, a secret U. S. government agent, attempting to defeat the sabotage schemes of Japanese agent Dr. Daka operating in Gotham City at the height of World War II. Serving Daka are his traitorous American henchmen. Batman is notable for being the first appearance on film of Batman and for debuting serial story details that quickly became permanent parts of the Batman comic's mythos: the Bat's Cave and its secret entrance through a grandfather clock inside Wayne Manor. The serial was commercially successful and in 1949 spawned another Columbia chapter play, Batman and Robin. The entire Batman serial was re-released theatrically in 1965 as An Evening with Batman and Robin, and proved very popular. Its success inspired the action-comedy lampoon series Batman (and its 1966 theatrical feature film spin-off) starring Adam West and Burt Ward. I should mention that I originally created this library in 2010, right after I started buildimg the site. I was using theatrical serials as daytime fodder at the TV station where I worked as the Program Manager at the time. But shortly after I put te library up, the videos stopped functioning correctly they were still there but they would crash innediately after starting up. Today I was perforning site maintenance and came across the files and decided to look for a new source - and found one! The restored library is located in the Theatrical Serials Catalog which can be found in the Cartoons, Short Format Films and Unsold Pilots Catalog.

      7/16/15 - Today I created a new Frasier library with all twenty-four episodes of Season 1 of the series. 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. The new library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog. I am consistantly amazed at some of the things I find on the Daily Motion streaming site. I have all but 3 of the episodes of this 11 Season series bookmarked, so many. many more to come!

      7/14/16 - Early this morning I finished restoring my I, Claudius library with all thirteen of the series episodes. I had twelve episodes of the series from Hulu, but those expired at the beginning of the month. Since then I have searched high and low and finally managed to find all of them between Daily Motion and the Internet Archive. During its original airing in 1976, the BBC estimated that I, Claudius had an average audience of 2,500,000 viewers per episode, based on rating surveys. In a list of the 100 Greatest British Television Programmes drawn up by the British Film Institute in 2000, voted for by industry professionals, I, Claudius was placed 12th. The restored library is available in the Television Drama and the Historical Drama Catalogs.

      7/13/16 - Today I added six episodes to the Public Defender library, increasing the library by 60%. 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. The library, which was one of the earliest ones I built and so I decided to rearrange it into proper order, adding Season, Episode, and Plot Summary info, is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Ctalog. The added episodes are:

      Let Justice Be Done
      High Stakes
      The Last Appeal
      Color Blind
      The Murder Photo
      Failure

      7/12/16 - Today I added eleven 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. The added episodes are:

      High Green Wall
      Road to Edinburgh
      Prosper's Old Mother
      Feathertop
      Easter Gift
      Hat with the Roses
      The Golden Key
      Questioning Note
      Don't Let It Throw You
      Holding Your Son
      My Dark Days - Prelude

      7/11/16 - Today I created a new F Troop Library with twenty-three episodes to start. F Troop (1965–1967) was a satirical American television sitcom about U.S. soldiers and American Indians in the Wild West during the 1860s that originally aired for two seasons on ABC. The series played fast and loose with historical events and persons, and often parodied them for comical effect. The first season of 34 episodes was broadcast in black-and-white, the second season in color. Stars Forrest Tucker, Larry Storch and Ken Berry. I have all but one episode (S1, E23) of the full series so many more to come! The new library is located in the Western Shows and the Funny Guys Catalogs.

      7/8/16 - Last night I created a new Get Smart Library with the first twenty-one episodes to start. 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 Funny Guys 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. I have most of the Season 1, 2 and 3 episodes from Daily Motion, so many more to come.

      7/7/16 - Today I added eleven episodes to the Richard Diamond: Private Detective Library. Dick Powell starred in the Richard Diamond, Private Detective radio series as a light-hearted detective who often ended the episodes singing to his girlfriend. Powell's company, Four Star Television, produced the TV series, which premiered on CBS but was later telecast for its last year on NBC. David Janssen starred as Diamond, a hard-boiled private detective in the film noir tradition. His secretary, "Sam," was shown only from the waist down to display her beautiful legs. Initially, these were the legs of Mary Tyler Moore for seven episodes, but later the legs of other actresses were seen. In the noirish opening sequence, clad in hat, suit, and tie, he walked down a dimly lit street toward the camera and lit up a cigarette, the light from which showed his face. This library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog. The added episodes are all of the ones on the second page of the library.

      7/6/16 - Late last night I added the final fourteen available episodes to The Whistler TV Series library. The Whistler (1954) was an American radio mystery drama which ran from May 16, 1942, until September 22, 1955, on the west-coast regional CBS radio network. A character known only as the Whistler was the host and narrator of the tales, which focused on crime and fate. He often commented directly upon the action in the manner of a Greek chorus. A syndicated TV version of The Whistler was produced and aired for a brief period in 1954. Since I already had a The Whistler Radio Show library, I recently created a Whistler Catalog to house both series. The Whistler Catalog is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. By the way, I noticed a curious thing as I was hunting down plot summary info for these episodes - the only ones I found were for episodes I have bookmarked, leading to me to believe that this library is complete and contains all of the episodes currently in existance.

      7/5/16 - I only had a litte time today so I added Chico and the Archbishop, The Intruder and Pit-a-Pit And the Dragon to the Telephone Time library. Telephone Time was an American anthology drama series that aired on CBS in 1956, and on ABC from 1957 to 1958. The series features plays by John Nesbitt who hosted the first season. Frank C. Baxter hosted the 1957 and 1958 seasons. The program showcased the talents of actors and actresses such as Bette Davis, Florenz Ames, Greer Garson, Joseph Cotten, Claudette Colbert, Michael Landon, Cloris Leachman, Johnny Crawford, Katherine Warren, Joel Grey, Fay Wray, Thomas Mitchell, Wright King, Strother Martin, Lon Chaney, Jr., Boris Karloff, John Carradine, Helen Wallace, and Michael Winkelman. This library is located in the Television Drama Catalog.

      7/4/16 - This afternoon, after going to the July 4th Parade in Mendocino, I returned to the house and decided to rebuild my long lost Agatha Christie's Miss Marple library with all twelve episodes of the complete series. Miss Marple was a British television series, consisting of TV movies and mini-series', based on the Miss Marple murder mystery novels by Agatha Christie. It starred Joan Hickson in the title role, and aired from 26 December 1984 to 27 December 1992. All 12 original Miss Marple Christie novels were dramatised. Joan Hickson, who played Miss Marple, was an octogenarian herself during most of the series' production. Decades before, she had appeared in a minor role in Murder, She Said, in which Margaret Rutherford played Miss Marple. The adaptations are mainly true to the original novels. Hickson had also appeared in a stage adaptation of the novel Appointment with Death in 1946, after which Christie sent Hickson a note "I hope one day you will play my dear Miss Marple. This library is found in the Agatha Christie Catalog located in the Mystery & Crime Drama and the Feature Films Catalogs, and in the Catalog of Stars.

      7/3/16 - Today I restored my The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin Library with 126 of the 164 episodes of the entire series. This is 10 more then I had in the priginal library. Rin Tin Tin (September 1918 – August 10, 1932) was a male German Shepherd rescued from a World War I battlefield by an American soldier, Lee Duncan, who nicknamed him "Rinty". Duncan trained Rin Tin Tin (often hyphenated as Rin-Tin-Tin) and obtained silent film work for the dog. Rin Tin Tin was an immediate box office success and went on to appear in 27 Hollywood films, gaining worldwide fame. Duncan groomed Rin Tin Tin IV for the 1950s television series The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin, but the dog performed poorly in a screen test and was replaced in the TV show by trainer Frank Barnes's dogs, primarily one named Flame, Jr., called JR, with the public led to believe otherwise. Instead of shooting episodes, Rin Tin Tin IV stayed at home in Riverside. The TV show Rin Tin Tin was nominated for a PATSY Award in 1958 and in 1959 but did not win. I will continue to search for the missing episodes. The Rin Tin Tin Catalog, which contains this library along with Feature Films and a Theatrical Serial, can be found in the Western Shows, the Action and Adventure, the Feature Films Catalogs, and the Catalog of Stars.

      6/29/16 - Today I restored my Rumpole of the Bailey library with all forty-two episodes of the complete series. Rumpole of the Bailey was a British television series created and written by the British writer and barrister John Mortimer. It starred Leo McKern as Horace Rumpole, an elderly London barrister who defended a broad variety of clients and has a number of definite character traits that are constant. First and foremost, Rumpole loves the courtroom. Despite attempts by his friends and family to get him to move on to a more respectable position for his age, such as a Queen's Counsel (QC) or a Circuit Judge (sarcastically referred to as "Queer Customers" and "Circus Judges" by Rumpole), he only enjoys the simple pleasure of defending his clients (who are often legal aid cases) at the Old Bailey, London's Central Criminal Court: "the honour of being an Old Bailey Hack," as he describes his work. A devotee of Arthur Quiller-Couch's Oxford Book of English Verse, he often quotes Wordsworth (and other poets less frequently, e.g. Shakespeare). He privately refers to his wife Hilda as "She Who Must Be Obeyed", a reference to the fearsome queen in the adventure novel She by H. Rider Haggard. I looked it up and I originally built this library (from YouTube) back in 2013. It then quickly disappeared. Since then I hadn't thought about it, but this morning I was working on a "housekeeping" project and started cleaning up the Rumpole pages. It occurred to me that this series might be found on Daily Motion - and it was, the entire series, infact. The original library contained the first 6 seasons - now I have all 7. This library is located in the Television Drama Catalog.

      6/27/16- Today I created a new Barney Miller library with twenty of the twenty-two episodes that make up Season 2 of the series. Of course, I would rather start with the first season, but hey, you take what you can get. 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. Barney Miller 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. This is yet another Daily Motion sourced library so I am hopefull that they will last on the site, and that eventually I will find more of them. The new 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.

      6/24/16 - Today 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 Funny Guys Catalogs. This the second time I have restored the first Season, which is all I have ever had in the library. The last time I again used YouTube videos and lost them again within a few weeks. This time I am using Daily Motion videos and I have all 6 Seasons bookmarked except for one episode from the Season 6. So stay tuned for a major expansion.

      6/23/16 - Today I added eleven episodes to the Topper TV Series library. Topper (1953-1955) was an American fantasy sitcom based on the 1937 film Topper, which was based on two novels Topper and Topper Takes a Trip by Thorne Smith. The series was broadcast on CBS and starred Leo G. Carroll in the title role. It finished at #24 in the Nielsen ratings for the 1954-1955 season. Topper also earned an Emmy nomination for Best Situation Comedy in 1954. Sophisticated but stuffy Cosmo Topper (Carroll) is the vice president of a bank, married to sweet (but rather clueless) Henrietta (Lee Patrick). They live in a Los Angeles house they bought from the estate of a young couple, George and Marion Kerby (real life husband and wife Robert Sterling and Anne Jeffreys), who died after being swept away by an avalanche. A St. Bernard, Neil, who attempted to rescue them also died with them. Topper discovers his new home is haunted by the former occupants as well as Neil. Strangely, he is the only one able to see or hear them. Neil, the St. Bernard, loves martinis and a running gag is the invisible dog lapping up the drink. This library is located in the Topper Catalog, which can be accessed via the Funny Guys Catalog, the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog, Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. The added episodes, all but one of which were part a previous version of the library, are:

      Meet the Ghosts
      Hiring the Maid
      The Hypnotist
      Reducing
      The Spinster
      Bank Securities
      The Kid
      Burgler (this is the new one)
      Masquerade
      The Socialite
      Surprise Party

      6/20/16 - Today I started restoring the Gomer Pyle USMC Library, including ten from Season 1 (all I have found so far) and twenty-nine episodes from Season 3 (thank you, Daily Motion). 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. The bad news is that I am still missing a lot, including most of Seasoon 1 all of the Season 2 episodes. But on the other hand, I have found many episodes I didn't have in the original library, including all of the Season 4 episodes, which I will post on the near future. Ths library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog.

      6/19/16 - Today I added Season 3 (twenty-eight episodes) to the Daniel Boone Library. Daniel Boone was an American action-adventure television series starring Fess Parker as Daniel Boone that aired on NBC. Ed Ames co-starred as Mingo, Boone's Cherokee friend, for the first four seasons of the series. Albert Salmi portrayed Boone's companion Yadkin in season one only. Daniel Boone was one of two iconic historical figures played by Fess Parker. He previously appeared as Davy Crockett in a series of episodes of the Walt Disney anthology television series, to considerable acclaim amid the launch of a national craze. For his role as Boone, which lasted much longer, but had far less impact, Parker again wore a raccoon-hide coonskin cap, which had been popularized years earlier by the Crockett shows. Daniel Boone's headgear was even mentioned in the show's theme song: "From the coonskin cap on the top of ol' Dan....". Efforts had been made to secure the rights to Crockett from Walt Disney, but Disney refused to sell, so the series wound up being about Boone instead. I have the complete series (6 Seasons) bookmarked, so many more to come! The new library is located in the Western Shows Catalog and the Action and Adventure Catalog.

      6/17/16 - Today I added thirteen episodes 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. I have the entire series bookmarked, so many more to come! This library is located in the Western Shows Catalog. The added episodes include the first episode of the series (Season 1, Episode 1 - Tumbleweed), the only episode of Season 5 currently in the library and all of the Season 8 episodes.

      6/16/16 - Today I created a new Mannix library with all twenty-four episodes of Season 1 to start. Mannix was an American television detective series that ran from 1967 to 1975 on CBS. The title character, Joe Mannix, is a private investigator. He is played by Mike Connors. During the first season of the series, Joe Mannix worked for a large Los Angeles detective agency called Intertect, which was the planned original title of the show. His superior was Lew Wickersham, played by Joseph Campanella, with the agency featuring the use of computers to help solve crimes. As opposed to the other employees who must wear dark suits and sit in rows of desks with only one piece of paper allowed to be on their desks at any one time, Mannix belongs to the classic American detective archetype, thus usually ignores the computers' solutions, disobeys his boss's orders, and sets out to do things his own way. He wears plaid sport coats and has his own office that he keeps sloppy between his assignments. Lew has cameras in all the rooms of Intertect monitoring the performance of his employees and providing instant feedback through intercoms in the room. Unlike the other Intertect operatives, Mannix attempts to block the camera with a coat rack and insults Lew, comparing him to Big Brother. The new library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

      6/15/16 - Today I added thirteen episodes to the Rosemary Clooney Show library. Rosemary Clooney (May 23, 1928 – June 29, 2002) was an American cabaret singer and actress. She came to prominence in the early 1950s with the novelty hit "Come On-a My House", which was followed by other pop numbers such as "Botch-a-Me", "Mambo Italiano", "Tenderly", "Half as Much", "Hey There" and "This Ole House", although she had success as a jazz vocalist. Clooney's career languished in the 1960s, partly due to problems related to depression and drug addiction, but revived in 1977, when her White Christmas co-star Bing Crosby asked her to appear with him at a show marking his 50th anniversary in show business. She continued recording until her death in 2002. In 1956-1957, Rosemary Clooney starred in a half-hour syndicated television musical-variety show The Rosemary Clooney Show. The show featured The Hi-Lo's singing group and Nelson Riddle's orchestra. The following year, the show moved to NBC prime time as The Lux Show Starring Rosemary Clooney but only lasted one season. The new show featured the singing group The Modernaires and Frank DeVol's orchestra. This library is located in the Rosemary Clooney Catalog which can be accessed via the Musical Programs and the Variety Programs Caalogs, and in the Catalog of Stars. The added episodes (listed by the names of the Guest Star) are:

      Vincent Price
      Zsa-Zsa Gabor
      Dorothy Malone
      Jeri Southern
      Carol Channing
      Dorothy Shay
      Judy Canova
      Hildegarde
      Hoagy Carmichael
      Jerry Colona
      Jose Ferrer
      Mel Torme
      Gene Nelson

      6/13/6 - Today I found a cache of Wagon Train episodes. When I went to inspect the original library I discovered that it had vanished except for six episodes. I was able to add seventeen to the library, which quadrupled it's size to a total of 24 episodes. 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 added episodes are:

      Annie Griffith
      Jose Maria Moran
      C.L. Harding
      Elizabeth McQueeny
      Countess Baranof
      Luke Grant
      Charlene Brenton
      David Garner
      Barnaby West
      Santiago Quesada

      Barbara Lindquist
      Brian Conlin
      Nancy Styles
      Echo Pass
      Herman
      Betsy Blee Smith

      6/12/16 - Today I added ten episodes to Sheriff of Cochise Library, which quadruples the size of the library from 3 to 13 episodes. Sheriff of Cochise was a Western-themed crime drama set in Arizona. Starring John Bromfield, the series aired eighty-three episodes in syndication from September 1956 to January 1958, a large number of segments for such a short time frame. Starring John Bromfield, the series aired in syndication from September 1956 to January 1958, a large number of segments for such a short time frame. Renamed as U.S. Marshal, another sixty episodes aired from October 1958 to April 1960. Bromfield portrayed law enforcement officer Frank Morgan. In the first two seasons, Morgan is the sheriff of Cochise County in southern Arizona. In the third season, Desilu Studios boss Desi Arnaz, Sr., retitled the series so that Morgan would work throughout Arizona as a U.S. Marshal and be involved in a greater number of cases. The first season episodes were later released under the alternative title, Man from Cochise. This library is located in the Western Shows Catalog. The added episodes are:

      Human Bomb
      Caine and Abel
      Red-Haired Visitor
      Closed for Repairs
      Helldorado
      Bank Robbery

      The Safe Man
      Robbery
      Pursuit
      Trigger Happy

      6/10/16 - I have been pretty busy this week. Part of it is that I am cleaning out my barn. The other part is that I am doing some routine site maintenance. Anyway, I had a little time today so I decided to add The Chess Player, The Dark Horse and Chinese Honeymoon to the Richard Diamond: Private Detective Library. Dick Powell starred in the Richard Diamond, Private Detective radio series as a light-hearted detective who often ended the episodes singing to his girlfriend. Powell's company, Four Star Television, produced the TV series, which premiered on CBS but was later telecast for its last year on NBC. David Janssen starred as Diamond, a hard-boiled private detective in the film noir tradition. This library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog. I also added The Gift, The Returning and One Forty-Two to the Four Star Playhouse library. Four Star Playhouse (1952–1956) featured individual episodes consisting of everything from comedy to drama. The original premise was that Charles Boyer, Ida Lupino, David Niven, and Dick Powell would take turns starring in episodes. This library is located in (where else), the Television Drama Catalog.

      6/8/16 - Today I added twenty-five episodes to the Petticoat Junction library, which brings us too Season 2, Episode 16. 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, Funny Guys and the Whacky Dames Catalogs. The added episodes are:

      Is There a Doctor?
      Very Old Antique

      6/7/16 - Late last night I restored Season 1 (thirty episodes) of The Fugitive Library. As has been happening a lot lately, after losing a YouTube sourced library (this one vanished in December of last year), I was able to start restoring it from Daily Motion. In this case, I have all of the series player pages already built, so retoring them is a pretty easy task. I will keep looking for more of them. The Fugitive was an American drama series produced by QM Productions and United Artists Television that aired on ABC from 1963 to 1967. David Janssen starred as Richard Kimble, a physician who is falsely convicted of his wife's murder and given the death penalty. En route to death row, Kimble's train derails over a switch, allowing him to escape and begin a cross-country search for the real killer, a "one-armed man". Meanwhile, Lt. Philip Gerard pursues him relentlessly. This library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog and also in the David Janssen Catalog, which can be found in the Feature Films, Television Drama Catalogs, and the Catalog of Stars.

      6/6/16 - 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 Hilliard), and their young sons, David and Eric "Ricky" Nelson. Don DeFore had a recurring role as the Nelsons' friendly neighbor "Thorny". This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added episodes are:

      Helpless Female
      The Equestrian
      Dave's Other Office

      6/5/2016 - Today I restored my Mike Hammer library to something like it's original content. This was one of the very first YouTube sourced libraries on the site and most of it disappeared within weeks of it's creation in November of 2013. I later restored it and it mostly vanished again soon after. I had kept it in it's reduced state until I went to check on it last night and discovered that all but 10 episodes were gone. Then, as has been my habit lately, I decided to look for episodes on Daily Motion and found a twenty-five of them, for which I already had pages built from the previous library. So the library now has thirty-three episodes from Season 1 and two from Season 2.Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer, with Darren McGavin in the title role, is the first syndicated television series based on Spillane's hard-boiled private detective. The series (produced from 1957 to 1959) had a run of 78 episodes over two seasons. Episodes were filmed in black and white and filled a half-hour time slot. Darren McGavin would go on to play another hardboiled private detective in the short-lived 1968 series The Outsider. He is perhaps best known as Carl Kolchak in the television series Kolchak: The Night Stalker and the curmudgeonly father in A Christmas Story. The library is available in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog. The added episodes are:

      Hot Hands, Cold Dice

      6/3/16 - Today I added fifteen more 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. The added episodes are:

      6/1/16 - Today I created a new Hawaii Five-0 Library with the nineteen available episodes of Season 4 (which is, unfortunately, the earliest episodes I have been able to find thus far). 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 library is available in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

      5/30/16 - Today I added The Abduction, The Bride, Vengeance, The Duke, Cutthroat Junction, Thunderhead, and The Secret to Season 2, and all of the available episodes of Season 3 (forty-two episodes total) to 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. This was one of the first libraries I created in 2010 when I first opened the Uncle Earl site. I had a few episodes from the first two seasons and haven't added any since the library was first built. I have several full seasons bookmarked, including Seasons 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11 and 13 - so lots more to come. This library is located in the Western Shows and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs.

      5/27/16 - Today I added fifteen episodes to the Topper TV Series library. Topper (1953-1955) was an American fantasy sitcom based on the 1937 film Topper, which was based on two novels Topper and Topper Takes a Trip by Thorne Smith. The series was broadcast on CBS and starred Leo G. Carroll in the title role. It finished at #24 in the Nielsen ratings for the 1954-1955 season. Topper also earned an Emmy nomination for Best Situation Comedy in 1954. Sophisticated but stuffy Cosmo Topper (Carroll) is the vice president of a bank, married to sweet (but rather clueless) Henrietta (Lee Patrick). They live in a Los Angeles house they bought from the estate of a young couple, George and Marion Kerby (real life husband and wife Robert Sterling and Anne Jeffreys), who died after being swept away by an avalanche. A St. Bernard, Neil, who attempted to rescue them also died with them. Topper discovers his new home is haunted by the former occupants as well as Neil. Strangely, he is the only one able to see or hear them. Neil, the St. Bernard, loves martinis and a running gag is the invisible dog lapping up the drink. This library is located in the Topper Catalog, which can be accessed via the Funny Guys Catalog, the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog, Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. The added episodes are:

      House Wreckers
      Topper Makes a Movie

      Topper's Insurance Scandal
      Topper's Other Job

      5/26/16 - This morning I went out to my Charlie Chan Film library and discovered that it was about half gone (all YouTube videos, of course). I was able to restore all but two of the missing films. In 1929, the Fox Film Corporation produced Behind That Curtain, starring Korean actor E.L. Park. Chan's role was minimal, with Chan appearing only in the last ten minutes of the film. Not until a white actor was cast in the title role in 1931 did a Chan film meet with success. In Charlie Chan Carries On Chan was played by Swedish actor Warner Oland, who had also played Fu Manchu in an earlier film. Oland, who claimed some Mongolian ancestry,played the character as more gentle and self-effacing than he had been in the books, perhaps in "a deliberate attempt by the studio to downplay an uppity attitude in a Chinese detective." Oland starred in sixteen Chan films for Fox. When Oland died in 1938, Fox hired another white actor, Sidney Toler, to play Charlie Chan, and produced eleven Chan films through 1942. When Fox decided to produce no further Chan films, Sidney Toler purchased the film rights. Monogram Pictures produced and released further Chan films, starring Toler. Toler died in 1947 and was succeeded by Roland Winters for six films. This library is located in the Charlie Chan Catalog, which can be found in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog, the Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      5/25/16 - Today I added forty-three episodes to the Adam-12 library, which brings us too the end of Season 3. One season left to go. Adam-12 (1968-1975) was a television police drama that followed two police officers of the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), Pete Malloy and Jim Reed, as they rode the streets of Los Angeles in their patrol unit, 1-Adam-12. Created by R. A. Cinader and Jack Webb, also known for creating Dragnet, the series starred Martin Milner and Kent McCord and captured a typical day in the life of a police officer as realistically as possible. The show helped introduce police procedures and jargon to the general public in the United States. This library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

      5/24/16 - Late last night I visited my Route 66 Library and discovered that about half of it (all the YouTube videos) had vanished. Fortunately, I happened to find a bunch of them on the Internet Archive a few weeks ago and planned to switch them out. While I was at it I managed to add a few episodes not in the original library, including: The Thin White Line, City of Wheels, Between Hello and Goodbye, Lizard's Leg & Owlet's Wing, Same Picture Different Frame and I'm Here to Kill a King. Unfortunately, I was unable to restore several of them, but all in all I ended up with fourteen episodes, for a net gain of one. 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. The new library is located in the Television Drama Catalog. I also decided to finish my Dante Library. Dante was an NBC adventure/drama television series starring Howard Duff as Willie Dante, a former gambler who operated Dante's Inferno, a San Francisco, California, nightclub. Dick Powell had previously played Dante in eight episodes of his Four Star Playhouse, initially written by Blake Edwards. This library, which containes 24 of the 26 total episodes from the Howard Duff series and 7 0f the 8 original episodes with Dick Powell, is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

      5/23/6 - Today I added Season 2 (twenty-nine episodes) to the Daniel Boone Library. Daniel Boone was an American action-adventure television series starring Fess Parker as Daniel Boone that aired on NBC. Ed Ames co-starred as Mingo, Boone's Cherokee friend, for the first four seasons of the series. Albert Salmi portrayed Boone's companion Yadkin in season one only. Daniel Boone was one of two iconic historical figures played by Fess Parker. He previously appeared as Davy Crockett in a series of episodes of the Walt Disney anthology television series, to considerable acclaim amid the launch of a national craze. For his role as Boone, which lasted much longer, but had far less impact, Parker again wore a raccoon-hide coonskin cap, which had been popularized years earlier by the Crockett shows. Daniel Boone's headgear was even mentioned in the show's theme song: "From the coonskin cap on the top of ol' Dan....". Efforts had been made to secure the rights to Crockett from Walt Disney, but Disney refused to sell, so the series wound up being about Boone instead. I have the complete series (6 Seasons) bookmarked, so many more to come! The new library is located in the Western Shows Catalog.

      5/21/16 - Today I added fourteen episodes to the Crossroads Library. This is the first time I have added anythng too this library since I created it a long time ago. Crossroads (1955-1957) was an American television anthology series based on the activities of clergy from different denominations. The episodes, which often had deep spiritual themes, were usually set in the 1950s, but some were framed for an earlier era. The series featured numerous guest stars, many of whom appeared in several episodes throughout the series' run. James Dean appeared in a 1955 episode, "Broadway Trust", along with Lloyd Bridges and Mary Treen. The episode aired five weeks after Dean died in an automobile crash in September 1955. I have to admit that I never watched this show, but my mother used to watch it (dare I say?) "religiously". Sorry, I couldn't resist :-) As for myself, my mind was always very scientific in nature. I just wasn't drawn to religion. This library is located in the Television Drama Catalog. The added episodes are:

      Cleanup
      Hostage
      Bell for O'Donnell
      Strange Bequest
      The Rebel
      The Bowery Bishop
      Dig or Die
      Lifeline
      The Judge
      Sky Pilot
      Timberland Preacher
      The Happy Gift
      The Healing
      9:30 Action

      5/20/16 - I have to admit that my own favorite area of the site is the TV Drama catalog. You can see so many great Hollywood actors trying out the then brand-new Television medium and giving wonderful performances for all to enjoy. So today I created a new Robert Montgomery Presents Library with nine episodes to start. Robert Montgomery (May 21, 1904 – September 27, 1981) was an American film and television actor, director and producer. He was also the father of actress Elizabeth Montgomery. In 1949, in order to develop a series for NBC, Montgomery relocated his family from the West Coast to New York City. Robert Montgomery Presents originally was telecast on a semi-weekly basis, alternating with Musical Comedy Time and Somerset Maugham TV Theatre. Initially offering hour-long dramas adapted from successful Hollywood films, the series was hosted and produced by Robert Montgomery. His presence lent a degree of respectability to the new medium of television, and he was able to persuade many of his Hollywood associates to appear. Montgomery introduced each episode and also acted in many episodes. While I was in the TV Drama Catalog I also added the remaining eighteen episodes (Season 2) to the June Allyson Show library. The June Allyson Show (1959–1961) (also known as The DuPont Show with June Allyson) was an American anthology drama series which aired on CBS. The series was hosted by actress June Allyson and was a Four Star-Pamric Production. Allyson was the third woman in network history to host such a series, along with Loretta Young and Jane Wyman. She not only hosted the series but starred in nearly two dozen of the fifty-seven produced episodes. Both libraries are located (where else) in the Television Drama Catalog.

      5/19/16 - Today I created a new Dick Powell Theatre Library with seven episodes to start. 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. The new library is located in the Television Drama Catalog.

      5/18/15 - Today I added seventeen episodes to the Perry Mason Library, including The Case of the Purple Woman, The Case of the Petulant Partner and all of the Season 3 and later 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.

      5/17/16 - Today I restored my Dante Library with ten episodes so far. I have more in the pipeline so stay tuned. Dante was an NBC adventure/drama television series starring Howard Duff as Willie Dante, a former gambler who operated Dante's Inferno, a San Francisco, California, nightclub. Alan Mowbray co-starred as Stewart Styles, the Maitre d', Tom D'Andrea as Biff, the bartender and Dante's "man Friday", and Mort Mills as police Lieutenant Bob Malone. Dante claimed to have put his past behind him but has retained old associates Stewart and Biff. While his club is legitimate, neither the police nor the mob believe that he is truly finished with the criminal underworld. Dante's old associates in crime keep appearing at the club in efforts to lure him back to the underworld. Dick Powell had previously played Dante in eight episodes of his Four Star Playhouse, initially written by Blake Edwards, who had previously created the radio drama Richard Diamond, Private Detective for Powell. There, Willie operated an illegal gambling operation in the back room of the "Inferno", which police soon shut down. The only regular from the Four Star Playhouse version to be cast in the series as well was Mowbray, who had first played a millionaire named Jackson who had gambled away his fortune and then worked as one of Dante's waiters. This library, which containes episodes from both the Howard Duff series and the original version with Dick Powell, is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog. I also posted all eighteen of the available Season 2 episodes of Stargate SG-1. 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. This library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog.

      5/16/16 - Last night I made another momentous discoverey on Daily Motion - over 300 episodes of Bonanza! I went ahead and added sixteen episodes to fill out Season 1. 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 was one of the first libraries I created in 2010 when I first opened the Uncle Earl site. I had a few episodes from the first two seasons and haven't added any since the library was first built. I have several full seasons bookmarked, including the remainder of Season 2 and the library will eventualy expand to include episodes from Seasons 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 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 episodes include:

      A Rose for Lotta
      The Newcomers
      The Paiute War
      Enter Mark Twain
      Annie O'Toole
      Phillip Diedesheimer
      Magnificent Adah
      The Hanging Posse
      Vendetta
      The Sisters
      The Last Hunt
      El Toro Grande
      The Outcast
      A House Divided
      The Spanish Grant
      The Avenger

      5/15/16 - Today I created a new Court Martial library with ten episodes, which are all that I have found thus far, but I will keep looking. Court Martial was an ITC Entertainment and Roncom Productions co-production crime drama TV series that premiered in 1965. Set during World War II, the series details the investigations of a Judge Advocate General's office. The series was shown on ABC in the United States and won the 1966 British Society of Film and Television (later known as BAFTA) TV award for Best Dramatic Series. The series had its genesis in a two-part episode of NBC's Kraft Suspense Theatre (also starring Peter Graves and Bradford Dillman), "The Case Against Paul Ryker". The new library is located in the Television Drama Catalog.

      5/14/16 - Today I added seventeen episodes to the Sky King library. Sky King was an American radio and TV series. Its lead character was Arizona rancher and aircraft pilot Schuyler "Sky" King. The series may have been based on a true-life personality of the 1930s, Jack Cones, the "Flying Constable" of Twentynine Palms in San Bernardino County, California, although this notion is unverified. The series had strong western elements. King usually captured criminals and spies and found lost hikers--though he did so with the use of his airplane, the Songbird. The airplanes flown by King changed during the course of the TV series, but were still known as the Songbird. The later 1955 version aircraft's make and model type number was clearly depicted as a "Cessna 310B" and was prominently displayed during the closing titles. King and his niece Penny (and sometimes Clipper, his nephew) lived on the Flying Crown Ranch, near the fictitious town of Grover, Arizona. Penny and Clipper were also pilots, although they were inexperienced and looked to their uncle for guidance. Penny was an accomplished air racer, rated as a multiengine pilot, whom Sky trusted to fly the Songbird. This library is located on the Action and Adventure Catalog. The added episodes are:

      The Neckerchief
      Fight for Oil
      Plastic Ghost
      The Rainbird
      Boomerang
      Rustlers on Wheels
      Diamonds on a Sky-Hook
      Rocket Story
      Rodeo Round-Up
      Showdown
      Land o' Cotton
      Dust of Destruction
      Mystery Horse
      Bad Actor
      Fight for Oil
      Lost Boy
      Brain and the Brawn

      5/12/16 - Today I added all thirty episodes of Season 2 to 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. The first two seasons are all that I have found so far, but I will keep looking. Season 2, by the way, was filmed in color, unlike Season 1, which was in black and white. This library is located in the Action and Adventure and Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

      5/11/16 - Today I created a new Daniel Boone Library with all twenty-nine episodes of Season 1 of the series. Daniel Boone was an American action-adventure television series starring Fess Parker as Daniel Boone that aired on NBC. Ed Ames co-starred as Mingo, Boone's Cherokee friend, for the first four seasons of the series. Albert Salmi portrayed Boone's companion Yadkin in season one only. Daniel Boone was one of two iconic historical figures played by Fess Parker. He previously appeared as Davy Crockett in a series of episodes of the Walt Disney anthology television series, to considerable acclaim amid the launch of a national craze. For his role as Boone, which lasted much longer, but had far less impact, Parker again wore a raccoon-hide coonskin cap, which had been popularized years earlier by the Crockett shows. Daniel Boone's headgear was even mentioned in the show's theme song: "From the coonskin cap on the top of ol' Dan....". Efforts had been made to secure the rights to Crockett from Walt Disney, but Disney refused to sell, so the series wound up being about Boone instead. I have the complete series (6 Seasons) bookmarked, so many more to come! The new library is located in the Western Shows Catalog.

      5/10/16 - The recent death of William Schallert got me to thinking about his role on The Patty Duke Show, in which he played "Patty Lane's" father. When I first created my Patty Duke library, I was only able to find 2 episodes of the show - I ended up filling it out with other appearances by the actress - mostly on game shows and interviews. I decided to look around for more episodes of the sitcom and found 5, including one that has since disappeared from the original library. This prompted me to create a seperate Patty Duke Show Library with six episodes of the series (I will keep looking for more), and a Patty Duke Films Library, with four of her feature Films. I deleted the sitcome episodes from the original library and turned it into an Other Apperances Library with the remaining twelve game show and interview programs. Of course, that necessitated creating a Patty Duke Catalog to house the 3 libraries. Anna Marie "Patty" Duke (December 14, 1946 – March 29, 2016) was an American actress of stage, film, and television. She first became known as a teen star, winning an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress at age 16 for her role as Helen Keller in The Miracle Worker (1962), a role which she had originated on Broadway. The following year she was given her own show, The Patty Duke Show, in which she played "identical cousins". She later progressed to more mature roles such as that of Neely O'Hara in the film Valley of the Dolls (1967).[1] Over the course of her career, she received ten Emmy Award nominations and three Emmy Awards, and two Golden Globe Awards. Duke also served as president of the Screen Actors Guild from 1985 to 1988. Duke was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 1982, after which she devoted much of her time to advocating for and educating the public on mental health issues. She died on March 29, 2016. The Patty Duke Show library is also available in the Whacky Dames an the Family Comedies & Drama Catalogs. The Patty Duke Catalog is located in the Feature Films Catalog and Catalog of Stars.

      5/9/16 - Today I added seventeen more episodes to the The Beverly Hillibillies Library. The added episodes include all of the Seasons 5 and 6 episodes in the 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. This library is locate in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

      5/8/16 - Last night I was looking for something on Daily Motion and stumbled across an episode of Life After People. With a little more searching I was able to find the entire series (twenty episodes plus the Pilot). Life After People (2009-2010) was a television series on which scientists, structural engineers, and other experts speculated about what might become of Earth should humanity instantly disappear. The featured experts also talked about the impact of human absence on the environment and the vestiges of civilization thus left behind. The series was preceded by a two-hour special that aired on January 21, 2008 on the History Channel which served as a de facto pilot for the series that premiered April 21, 2009. The documentary and subsequent series were both narrated by James Lurie. Although this hardly qualifies as "Classic Television" I decided to post it because it is such a great series. When it was on originally I watched all of the episodes twice! I can't recommend it highly enough. The new library is located in the News/Documentary (Reality) Programs Catalog.

      5/7/16 - Today I created a new Richard the Lionheart library with thirty-four of the 39 episodes that make up the complete series. Richard the Lionheart was a British ITV television series which ran during 1962 and 1963, and was aimed at a younger audience. It began with the death of King Henry II, and put forward the traditional view of King Richard the Lionheart as a hero, and his brother Prince John (played by Trader Faulkner) as the villain. Richard was played by Irish actor Dermot Walsh. I feel compelled to mention a couple of things regarding this library. First of all, finding plot summary information for most of these episodes proved to be impossible. In fact, so far I have only found them for 10 of the episodes - I will keep searching. Also, these videos could only be embedded in "autoplay" mode, which means that they start playing as soon as you reach the player page. And finally, and this is only a personal opinion mind you, the theme song for this series is literally the lamest TV theme I have ever heard - and considering how many TV shows I deal with on a daily basis, that is saying something!! The new library is located in the Historical Drama and the Kid Show Catalogs.

      5/6/16 - Today I added fifteen episodes to the Schlitz Playhouse library. Schlitz Playhouse of Stars was an anthology series that was telecast from 1951 until 1959 on CBS. Offering both comedies and drama, the series was sponsored by the Joseph Schlitz Brewing Company. The title was shortened to Schlitz Playhouse, beginning with the fall 1957 season. Initially, the show was broadcast live, but starting in the summer of 1953, some episodes were filmed in advance. Beginning with the 1956-1957 season, all of the shows were filmed. This library is located in the Television Drama Catalog. The added episodes are:

      The Life You Save
      For Better, for Worse
      Girl with a Glow
      The Hole Card
      No Second Helping
      Night of the Stranger
      The Honor System
      Town That Slept
      You'll Have to Die Now
      Curfew at Midnight
      Last Edition
      No Answer
      Practically Strangers
      The Salted Mine
      The Rumor

      5/5/6 - Today I restored all one-hundred-and-thirty-nine episodes of my 3rd Rock from the Sun Library from Hulu. 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. This library was the first YouTube hosted library on the site, and it disappeared in a matter of weeks after I created it. The restored library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

      5/4/16 - Today, for the first time in at least 5 years, I added nineteen episodes to The Beverly Hillibillies Library. The last time I did ANY work on this library was back in 2014 when I added season, episode and plot summary information and arranged the episodes into the proper order. 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. This library is locate in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added episodes are all those from Seasons 3 and 4. I have 33 more of these episodes bookmarked so watch for further expansion in the near future.

      5/3/16 - Today I created a new George of the Jungle Library with all seventeen episodes of the cartoon series. George of the Jungle (1967)was an American animated series produced by Jay Ward and Bill Scott, who created The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show. The character George was inspired by the story of Tarzan and a cartoon characterization of George Eiferman (Mr. America, Mr. Universe, IFBB Hall of Famer) drawn by a cook on his mine sweeper in the Navy during WW2. Each episode featured three segments in the form of three unrelated cartoons: George of the Jungle, Tom Slick, and Super Chicken. Each of the cartoons ended with a strike on the Tympani (Kettledrum), which changed to an ascending tone, following a bad pun. The cartooms in this collection are just the George of the Jungle series. The new library is located in the Cartoon and the Kid Show Catalogs. I also restored my The Avengers Library today. I discovered a couple of days ago that Hulu had discontinued their Avengers library without notifying me. I did a search on Daily Motion and found thirty-two episodes, most of which I didn't have in the original library. This includes all of the Season 3 episodes and all but 2 of those from Season 2 tat are now in the library. I also found two episodes from Season 1, which is before the series was brought to the US. The restored library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

      5/2/16 - Today I created a new The Human Jungle Library with twelve episodes of the 26 that make up the complete series. The Human Jungle (1963–1964) was a British TV series about a psychiatrist, made for ABC Television by the small production company Independent Artists for transmission on ITV. Starring Herbert Lom as Dr Roger Corder M.D., the majority of the episodes focused on a specific patient, whose psychological ailment Dr Corder would treat and, invariably, cure, using an idiosyncratic approach which mixed Freudian psychoanalysis with more contemporary methods associated with the then fashionable theories of R. D. Laing. The new library is located in the Television Drama Catalog. I will keep looking for more episodes.

      5/1/16 - Today I restored my 77 Sunset Strip Library and then some. The original library had a grand total of 2 episodes - the new one has twenty-seven! All this was possible because I found a cache of videos on Daily Motion. 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. The restored library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

      4/30/16 - Today I created a new The New Breed Library with ten of the 36 episodes that make up the complete series. The New Breed (1961–1962) starred Leslie Nielsen as the serious Lieutenant Price Adams who worked on "The Hot Shot Detail" of the LAPD's Metro Squad and former Major League Baseball player John Beradino as Sergeant Vince Cavelli. The New Breed was the first independent production of Quinn Martin under his newly established company, QM Productions. Prior to starting his own production company, Martin had produced The Untouchables for Desilu Productions, and Nielsen was cast for the role of Adams because of a guest appearance he had made on that program in the episode entitled "Three Thousand Suspects." The series faced tough competition from The Red Skelton Show and Ichabod and Me on CBS and The Dick Powell Show on NBC, and was canceled after one season. I will keep looking for more episodes. The new library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama and the Leslie Neilsen Catalogs. I also added three episodes to the Mr. and Mrs. North Library, also located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog. The added episodes are: Murder for Sale, Beauty Prize and Stranger Than Fiction.

      4/28/16 - Today I added the last twenty-three available episodes to the Judd for the Defense Library, which completes the library for now. There are two remaining episodes, one of which I have, but since they are parts of a 2-part episode, I can't really post them until I have them both. I will keep looking for the 2nd part. Judd, for the Defense was an American legal drama originally broadcast on the ABC network on Friday nights. The show stars Carl Betz, who had previously spent eight years in the role of Dr. Alex Stone, husband of Donna Reed in ABC's The Donna Reed Show. In his new role, reportedly based on high-profile lawyers such as F. Lee Bailey and Percy Foreman, Betz played Clinton Judd, a flamboyant attorney based in Houston, who often took on controversial cases across the country. This library is located in the Television Drama and the Mystery & Crime Drama and the Leslie Nielson Catalogs.

      4/27/16 - Today I added twenty-six episodes to the Andy Griffith Show Library, which brings us too the end of Season 6. 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. I have all of the remaining episodes bookmarked, so when the library is done it will include the complete series. This library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. By the way, Season 6 was when the series started being shot in color!

      4/26/16 - Today I added eleven episodes to the Sky King library. Sky King was an American radio and TV series. Its lead character was Arizona rancher and aircraft pilot Schuyler "Sky" King. The series may have been based on a true-life personality of the 1930s, Jack Cones, the "Flying Constable" of Twentynine Palms in San Bernardino County, California, although this notion is unverified. The series had strong western elements. King usually captured criminals and spies and found lost hikers--though he did so with the use of his airplane, the Songbird. The airplanes flown by King changed during the course of the TV series, but were still known as the Songbird. The later 1955 version aircraft's make and model type number was clearly depicted as a "Cessna 310B" and was prominently displayed during the closing titles. King and his niece Penny (and sometimes Clipper, his nephew) lived on the Flying Crown Ranch, near the fictitious town of Grover, Arizona. Penny and Clipper were also pilots, although they were inexperienced and looked to their uncle for guidance. Penny was an accomplished air racer, rated as a multiengine pilot, whom Sky trusted to fly the Songbird. This library is located on the Action and Adventure Catalog. The added episodes are:

      Jim Bell's Triumph
      One for the Money
      Danger Point
      The Man Who Forgot
      Desperate Character
      The Threatening Bomb
      Speak No Evil
      Two-Gun Penny
      The Giant Eagle
      Blackmail
      The Porcelain Lion

      4/25/16 - Today I spent most of the afternoon doing maintenance work on the site and then add nine 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. The added episodes are:

      Esteban's Legacy
      Summer Promise
      Emergency Call
      Pot of Gold
      Pawnee Kill
      Victorian Chaise Longue
      The Man Who Inherited
      Eyes of a Stranger
      The Cold Touch

      4/24/16 - Today I was a little pressed for time so I worked on a couple of small libraries. First I added four episodes to the Window on Main Street library, which triples the size of said library from 2 to 6 episodes. Window on Main Street was an American half-hour comedy-drama television series starring Robert Young, which aired on CBS during the 1961-1962 season. Created by Roswell Rogers, Window on Main Street was produced by its star, Robert Young. Young, whose Father Knows Best series had ended production a year earlier, was cast as Cameron "Cam" Garrett Brooks, a widower-author, who returns to his hometown of fictional Millsberg, possibly in New England, but no state is ever given as the location of the series. Cam renews his friendship with Lloyd Ramsey, the editor of the local newspaper, portrayed in eleven episodes by Ford Rainey. The people of Millsberg become the subjects of Cam's stories. This library is located in the Family Comedies & Drama and the Robert Young Catalogs. I also created a new Classic Movie Bloopers library, which consists of nine Warner Brothers feature films outtake reels (called "Breakdowns"), produced by WB in the 1930s and 40s to show during the annual Warner Brothers Christmas parties that took place in 1936, 1937, 1938, 1939, 1940, 1941, 1946 and 1947. The new library is located in the Feature Films and the Other Short Film Catalogs.

      4/23/16 - Today I created a new June Allyson Show library with ninteen episodes to start. The June Allyson Show (1959–1961) (also known as The DuPont Show with June Allyson) was an American anthology drama series which aired on CBS. The series was hosted by actress June Allyson and was a Four Star-Pamric Production. Allyson was the third woman in network history to host such a series, along with Loretta Young and Jane Wyman. She not only hosted the series but starred in nearly two dozen of the fifty-seven produced episodes. This library is located in the Television Drama Catalog. Later today I decided to look around for June June Allyson Films and found eight of them. So I created a library to hold them, and then created a June Allyson Catalog to house the 2 new libraries. The new catalog is located in the Feature Films Catalog and in the Catalog of Stars.

      4/21/16 - Today I restored my Waterfront library with thirty episodes so far. I am not sure when the original library vanished, in fact I didn't even remember that I had it until I started to build the pages. It must have been before I created the Updates page because I found no mention of it there. Waterfront (1954–1956) starred Preston Foser as John Herrick, the captain of the tug "Cheryl Ann" in Los Angeles harbor. His family consisted of wife May, police detective son Jim, and the crew of the tug, his son Carl, Tip and Willie. Carl was engaged to Terry. The stories revolved around the family and various criminals encountered around the harbor. The restored library is located in the Action and Adventure Catalog.

      4/20/16 - Today I created a new The Whistler TV Series library with fourteen episodes to start. The Whistler (1954) was an American radio mystery drama which ran from May 16, 1942, until September 22, 1955, on the west-coast regional CBS radio network. A character known only as the Whistler was the host and narrator of the tales, which focused on crime and fate. He often commented directly upon the action in the manner of a Greek chorus. A syndicated TV version of The Whistler was produced and aired for a brief period in 1954. Since I already have a The Whistler Radio Show library, I also created a Whistler Catalog to house both series. The new Catalog is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. I have 15 more episodes bookmarked, so more to come. By the way, I noticed a curious thing as I was hunting down plot summary info for these episodes - the only ones I found were for the episodes I have bookmarked, leading to me to believe that when this library is complete it will likely contain all of the episodes currently in existance.

      4/19/16 - Today I added twenty-one episodes to the Mister Peepers. This program starred Wally Cox (December 6, 1924 – February 15, 1973), an American comedian and actor, particularly associated with the early years of television in the United States. He appeared in the U.S. television series Mr. Peepers (1952–1955), plus several other popular shows, and as a character actor in over 20 films. Cox was the voice of the popular animated canine superhero Underdog. Although often cast as a meek milquetoast, he was actually quite athletic as well as a military veteran. He married three times and was best friends with Marlon Brando. This library is available in the Funny Guys Catalog and the Wally Cox Catalog. The added episodes are all of the Season 2 shows in the library except for the first one and the last one. In the past I have mentioned that the episodes in this library may be all that exist - but then I just found these 21, so I am going to refrain from making any more predictions about this library.

      4/18/16 - Today I added eleven episodes to complete the Colonel March of Scotland Yard library. Colonel March of Scotland Yard was a 1950s British television series based on author John Dickson Carr's (aka Carter Dickson) fictional detective Colonel March from his book The Department of Queer Complaints (1940). The show starred Boris Karloff as the urbane, eye-patched sleuth. Other regulars included Ewan Roberts as Inspector Ames of Scotland Yard and Eric Pohlmann as Inspector Goron of the Paris Sûreté. The twenty-three episodes in this library are reputed to be the only ones still in existence. This library can be found in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog, the Scotland Yard Catalogand is also available in the Boris Karloff Catalog. The added episodes are:

      Murder Is Permanent
      The Silent Vow
      The Other Monkey
      The Stolen Crime
      Hot Money
      The Missing Link
      Misguided Missal
      The Deadly Gift
      The Lively Ghost
      New Invisible Man
      Passage at Arms

      I also added Seasons 1 through 5 to the Gunsmoke library located in the Western Shows Catalog.

      4/16/16 - Early last evening I decided to watch an episode of Have Gun Will Travel. I had been binge-watching it a few months ago, had left off after watching Season 1 Episodes 38, and had the next episode bookmarked. I was shocked to find that episode, most of the Season 1 shows, and THE ENTIRE REMAINDER OF THE LIBRARY had gone MIA! I'd had the entire series in the library since last May. On a whim, I decided to search for the series on Daily Motion and found one hundred and sixty episodes! I spent the rest of the evening restoring the library and now have one-hundred and seventy-one of the original 225 episodes. This library is located in the Western Shows and the Richard Boone Catalogs. By the way, this morning it occurred to me to look for Gunsmoke episodes on Daily Motion and I found more than 200 of them! Stay tuned...

      4/15/16 - Today I added twenty episodes to the The Doris Day Show, bringing us to Season 3 Episode 11. 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. The added episodes are all of the ones on the 3rd library page.

      4/15/16 - Today I created a new Mister Roberts Library with ten episodes so far. Mister Roberts (1965-1966) was an American sitcom that aired on NBC from September 17, 1965 to April 8, 1966. Based on the best selling novel, 1948 play, and the 1955 film of the same name, the series stars Roger Smith in the title role and Richard X. Slattery as the ship's captain. Set during World War II, the series chronicled the adventures of the crew of the USS Reluctant AK-601 cargo ship. Produced by Warner Bros. Television, Mister Roberts was executive produced by William T. Orr. The series' theme song was composed by Stan Kenton. The new library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog.

      4/14/16 - Today I added eighteen episodes to the Phil Silvers Show Library with eighteen episodes so far. I had a pretty extensive collection of these shows at one time - almost the entire series, but they were taken down off YouTube. In fact as I remember it, this was one of the first libraries I lost way back when. I found a cache of 33 episodes on the Internet Archive, so I have hopes that these will survive. 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 should mention that unfortunately some of these epidoes have had their opening credits edited out rather sloppily. In some cases they have managed to lop off the the first few seconds of the episode. It doesn't really ruin the experience, but it is kind of annoying. This library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog. More to come. The added episodes are are the 1st and 3rd ones on the first page of the library and all of the episodes on the second page, and these are all that I have found so far - but I will keep looking.

      4/13/16 - Today I added ten more episodes to the Schlitz Playhouse library. Schlitz Playhouse of Stars was an anthology series that was telecast from 1951 until 1959 on CBS. Offering both comedies and drama, the series was sponsored by the Joseph Schlitz Brewing Company. The title was shortened to Schlitz Playhouse, beginning with the fall 1957 season. Initially, the show was broadcast live, but starting in the summer of 1953, some episodes were filmed in advance. Beginning with the 1956-1957 season, all of the shows were filmed. This library is located in the Television Drama Catalog. I still have 17 more of these episodes bookmarked, so more to come. The added episodes are:

      War at San Dede
      The Black Mate
      The General's Boots
      Midnight Haul
      The Long Trail
      Unlighted Road
      Direct Approach
      No Trial by Jury
      Pattern for Pursuit
      Repercussion

      4/12/16 - Today found two different shows that are related to Scotland yard, so I decided to create a Scotland Yard Catalog to house the two shows. The first, called Scotland Yard , with twelve videos, is NOT actually a TV show, rather a series of 39 short films produced by Anglo-Amalgamated as filler to be shown between Double-Feature films at movie theaters (Remember when that used to happen? Back when a trip to the movies was a 4-hour experience). Each film focuses on a true crime case with names changed, and feature an introduction by the crime writer Edgar Lustgarten. Kind of like Dragnet at the movies :-). The second is Colonel March of Scotland Yard, starring Boris Karloff. Colonel March of Scotland Yard was a 1950s British television series based on author John Dickson Carr's (aka Carter Dickson) fictional detective Colonel March from his book The Department of Queer Complaints (1940). The show starred Boris Karloff as the urbane, eye-patched sleuth. Other regulars included Ewan Roberts as Inspector Ames of Scotland Yard and Eric Pohlmann as Inspector Goron of the Paris Sûreté. The twelve episodes in this library are reputed to be the only ones still in existence. Both of the new libraries can also be found in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog. The Colonel March series is also available in the Boris Karloff Catalog. The new Scotland Yard Catalog is located in the Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      4/11/16 - Today I was able to restore (for the secod time) twenty-one episodes to the Wendy and Me Library, down from the 26 I had originally, but still a sunstantial number, to which I hope to add more. Wendy and Me (1964-1965) was an American sitcom that aired on ABC, primarily sponsored by Consolidated Cigar's "El Producto". Starring George Burns (the "Me" in Wendy and Me) and Connie Stevens, the series was Burns' first major work following the death of his wife and professional partner, Gracie Allen, who had died of a heart attack about a month prior to the debut of Wendy and Me. In the series (a slight variation of The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show), Burns, playing a somewhat fictionalized version of himself, is the owner of an apartment building, while Stevens plays his tenant, Wendy Conway. Episodes typically revolved around Wendy pulling Burns into comedic situations mostly involving her husband, played by Ron Harper, and other people in the building. As a regular part of its format, Burns would often break the fourth wall to comment directly to the audience about the episode's events, as he did in the Burn's & Allen series. The library can be found in both the Funny Guys and the Whacky Dames Catalogs.

      4/10/16 - Today I added nineteen episodes to Season 2 (which is all I have found of the season) to 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. I have lots of these episodes bookmarked so many more to come! 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.

      4/9/16 - Today I started restoring my The Streets of San Francisco library with all twenty-six episodes of Season 1 to start. The Streets of San Francisco was a 1970s television crime drama filmed on location in San Francisco, California. It starred Karl Malden and Michael Douglas as two detectives in San Francisco. The series started with a pilot movie of the same title (based on the detective novel Poor, Poor Ophelia by Carolyn Weston) a week before the series debuted. The Pilot is part of this library. The library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog . I have almost the entire series bookmarked but plan to hold off on posting any more of them because these are YouTube videos, which tend to vanish suddenly. I want to see if they last a while before continuing the restoration.

      This evening it occurred too me that I should put up a Paul Henning Catalog since I have all three of his signature television productions and plan to expand those libraries. Paul William Henning (September 16, 1911 – March 25, 2005) was an American producer and writer. He first created the CBS series The Beverly Hillbillies, a sitcom based on his past experiences while camping in the Ozarks near Branson, Missouri. The Beverly Hillbillies was one of the highest-rated series of all time, even becoming a feature film about three decades later. After the major success of that show, CBS gave Henning another half-hour timeslot on their schedule. In 1963, Petticoat Junction debuted on CBS and was a great success as well. This series had a starring role for Henning's daughter (who shared a September 16 birthday with her father), Linda Kaye Henning, who was simply billed as "Linda Kaye". In 1965 this was followed by Green Acres (1965–1971), with Henning serving as casting director and executive producer. The new Paul Henning Catalog is located in the Catalog of Stars.

      4/8/16 - Today I added twenty-two episodes to the Petticoat Junction library, which more than quadruples the size of the library, from 7 to 29 episodes. 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, Funny Guys and the Whacky Dames Catalogs. The added episodes are:

      Hide The Railroad
      The President
      The Courtship
      Little Train Robbery
      Bedloe Strikes Again
      Uncle Joe's Replacement
      Honeymoon Hotel
      My Daughter The Doctor
      Hooterville vs Hollywood
      A Big Star
      The Art Game
      The Talent Contest
      The Ladybugs
      Hooterville Flivverball
      Kate The Stockholder
      Kate And The Dowager
      Charley Abandons the Train
      What Happened to Betty Jo?
      The Master Plan
      Sneaky Ways of a Woman
      A Momentous Occasion

      4/7/16 - Today I added the last twenty-three episodes to Season 2 of the The Rebel library, thus completing the series with all 76 episodes intact. The Rebel is a American western television series starring Nick Adams that aired on the ABC network from 1959 to 1961. The series portrays the adventures of young Confederate Army veteran Johnny Yuma, an aspiring writer, played by Nick Adams. Haunted by his memories of the American Civil War, Yuma, in search of inner peace, roams the American West, specifically the Texas Hill Country and the South Texas Plains. He keeps a journal of his adventures and fights injustice where he finds it with a revolver and a sawed-off double-barreled shotgun. This library is located in the Western Shows Catalog.

      4/6/16 - Today I added the first twenty-seven episodes of Season 5 to 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. I have all of the remaining episodes bookmarked, so when the library is done it will include the complete series. This library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

      4/5/16 - Today I added the first eleven episodes of Season 4 to the McHale's Navy Library. McHale's Navy (1962-1966) was a wacky military service comedy series set in the Pacific theatre of World War II (for this last season the setting changed to the European theater in Italy) and focused on the loony misfit crew of PT-73, wily boys with crazy antics, led by Lieutenant Commander Quinton McHale, played by Ernest Borgnine. This library is located in the Funny Guys and the Action and Adventure Catalogs. There are only 19 Season 4 episodes left to complete the series. Coming soon!

      4/4/16 - Today I added ten episodes to the Sky King library, which almost triples the size of the library from 6 to 16 episodes. Sky King was an American radio and TV series. Its lead character was Arizona rancher and aircraft pilot Schuyler "Sky" King. The series may have been based on a true-life personality of the 1930s, Jack Cones, the "Flying Constable" of Twentynine Palms in San Bernardino County, California, although this notion is unverified. The series had strong western elements. King usually captured criminals and spies and found lost hikers--though he did so with the use of his airplane, the Songbird. The airplanes flown by King changed during the course of the TV series, but were still known as the Songbird. The later 1955 version aircraft's make and model type number was clearly depicted as a "Cessna 310B" and was prominently displayed during the closing titles. King and his niece Penny (and sometimes Clipper, his nephew) lived on the Flying Crown Ranch, near the fictitious town of Grover, Arizona. Penny and Clipper were also pilots, although they were inexperienced and looked to their uncle for guidance. Penny was an accomplished air racer, rated as a multiengine pilot, whom Sky trusted to fly the Songbird. This library is located on the Action and Adventure Catalog. The added episodes are:

      Carrier Pigeon
      Designing Woman
      Destruction from the Sky
      Fish Out of Water
      Rodeo Round-Up
      Dust of Destruction
      Double Trouble
      Note for a Dam
      Feathered Serpent
      Ring of Fire

      4/2/16 - I had fallen a bit behind this week because I took a delivery of firewood on Thursday and have spent the last couple of days stacking it to season. Anyway, tonight I added Trapped, The Martyr, The Bitter Choice, Into the Night and Outpost at Home 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.

      3/29/16 - I'm a little short on time today because I have a doctor's appointment, so I created a new Johnny Ringo Library with only ten episodes to start. 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. The new library is located in the Western Shows Catalog. Update 11:15 PM: My medical procedure went fine and didn't take as long as I expected, so I found myself with some extra time tonight and decided to finish the library with all twenty-nine episodes that are currently available of the series.

      3/28/16 - Today I started restoring my Judd for the Defense Library with twenty-three epsiodes to atart. Judd, for the Defense was an American legal drama originally broadcast on the ABC network on Friday nights. The show stars Carl Betz, who had previously spent eight years in the role of Dr. Alex Stone, husband of Donna Reed in ABC's The Donna Reed Show. In his new role, reportedly based on high-profile lawyers such as F. Lee Bailey and Percy Foreman, Betz played Clinton Judd, a flamboyant attorney based in Houston, who often took on controversial cases across the country. This library is located in the Television Drama and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

      3/27/16 - Today I created a new Breaking Point library with sixteen of the thirty episodes that make up the complete series. I had never heard of this show and have not been able to find any more of the episodes so far. Breaking Point (1963–1964) was an American medical drama that aired on ABC. The series, which was a spinoff of Ben Casey (which, coincidently, it follows alphabetically in the Catalog listings), starred Paul Richards and Eduard Franz. The series was created by Meta Rosenberg. Richards starred as Dr. McKinley Thompson, the chief resident in psychiatry at York Hospital, a fictitious hospital in Los Angeles. Eduard Franz co-starred as Dr. Edward Raymer, the hospital's psychiatric clinic director. McKinley was called Dr. Mac by everyone on the staff, and the stories focused on the people who came to the psychiatric clinic for their help. The new library is located in the Television Drama Catalog

      3/26/16 - Today I added nine episodes to the Schlitz Playhouse library. Schlitz Playhouse of Stars was an anthology series that was telecast from 1951 until 1959 on CBS. Offering both comedies and drama, the series was sponsored by the Joseph Schlitz Brewing Company. The title was shortened to Schlitz Playhouse, beginning with the fall 1957 season. Initially, the show was broadcast live, but starting in the summer of 1953, some episodes were filmed in advance. Beginning with the 1956-1957 season, all of the shows were filmed. This library is located in the Television Drama Catalog. I still have 27 more of these episodes bookmarked, so many more to come. The added episodes are:

      Two Lives Have I
      Fresh Start
      The Closed Door
      No Compromise
      Baker of Barnbury
      Go Away a Winner
      The Jungle Trap
      Night Ride to Butte
      Something Wonderful

      3/25/16 - This morning I read of the passing of comedian, Garry Shandling, at age 66 of an apparent heart attack. So I have established a Garry Shandling library with sixteen videos from various stand-up and interview appearances. Unfortunately, I was unable to find anything substantal from either of his starring vehicles. Garry Emmanuel Shandling (November 29, 1949 – March 24, 2016) was an American comedian, actor, writer, producer and director. He was best known for his work in It's Garry Shandling's Show and The Larry Sanders Show. Shandling began his career writing for sitcoms such as Sanford and Son and Welcome Back, Kotter. He made a successful stand-up performance on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson and became a frequent guest-host on the show. Shandling was for a time considered the leading contender to replace Carson (other hopefuls were Joan Rivers, David Letterman and David Brenner). In 1986 he created It's Garry Shandling's Show, for the pay cable channel Showtime. It was nominated for four Emmy Awards (including one for Shandling) and lasted until 1990. His second show, The Larry Sanders Show, which began airing on HBO in 1992, was even more successful. Shandling was nominated for 18 Emmy Awards for the show and won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series in 1998, along with Peter Tolan, for writing the series finale. In film, Shandling had a recurring role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, appearing in Iron Man 2 and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, as well as a voice in DreamWorks Animation's Over the Hedge. During his three-decade career, Shandling was nominated for 19 Primetime Emmy Awards and two Golden Globe Awards, along with many other awards and nominations. He served as host of the Grammy Awards four times and as host of the Emmy Awards three times. The tribute library can be found in the Funny Guys Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      Tonight I restored some of my Adventures in Paradise library, including twenty episodes from Season 1 and 2. This is only a small portion of the original library, but it's a start. Adventures in Paradise was an American television series created by James Michener which ran on ABC from 1959 until 1962, 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 on the Action and Adventure Catalog.

      3/23/16 - Today I added all of the available Season 2 episodes (fifteen) to the Tales of Wells Fargo library. This completes the library until I find more of the missing episodes. Tales of Wells Fargo (1957–1962) was an American Western television series starring Dale Robertson that ran on NBC. Produced by Revue Productions, the series aired in a half-hour format until its final season when it expanded to an hour. Set in the 1870s and 1880s, Robertson portrayed special agent Jim Hardie, noted at the time as "the left-handed gun", a company troubleshooter in the American West. This library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Western Shows Catalogs. Please Note: Several of these are segmented into 2 parts. To watch the 2nd segment, click on the "Part 2" link under the player window.

      3/22/16 - Today I made a truly amazing discovery when I found most of the Season 1 through Season 5 episodes of Stargate SG-1 series! I have posted Season 1 so far. This is one of my favorite shows, in fact I am currently watching it on Hulu for the second time! I originally binge-watched it on NetFlix - sometimes watching 4 or 5 episodes in a sitting, about 4 years ago. I recently found it on Hulu and started watching it again, one at a time. Unfortunately the Hulu version isn't available to post because it can only be watched with a Hulu subscription. I found these while searching for the original Stargate movie on Daily Motion, a Southeast-Asian based video streaming service that doesn't monitor copyrights nearly as studiously as YouTube, for instance. I would still recommend watching these soon, just in case they vanish like the wind... 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. The new library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog. I also founnd episodes of the two other Stargate franchise programs (Stargate Atlantis, and Stargate Universe) and will start posting them soon. By the way, several of these episodes are segmented into 2 or 3 parts. Daily Motion doesn't allow users to create playlists from other user's videos, so I have provided a link to the next part of a segmented video at the bottom left of the player window.

      3/21/16 - Tonight I added eighteen episodes to the Perry Mason Library, thus completing Season 1 of the series. 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. I have lots of these episodes bookmarked so many more to come! 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.

      3/20/16 - Today I started expanding the Schlitz Playhouse library, by adding ten more episodes. This triples the size of the library. Schlitz Playhouse of Stars was an anthology series that was telecast from 1951 until 1959 on CBS. Offering both comedies and drama, the series was sponsored by the Joseph Schlitz Brewing Company. The title was shortened to Schlitz Playhouse, beginning with the fall 1957 season. Initially, the show was broadcast live, but starting in the summer of 1953, some episodes were filmed in advance. Beginning with the 1956-1957 season, all of the shows were filmed. This library is located in the Television Drama Catalog. I still have 34 more of these episodes bookmarked, so manymore to come. The added episodes are:

      Appointment with the Past
      Dress in the Window
      The Marriage of Lit-Lit
      Nineteen Rue Marie
      The Governess
      Medicine Woman
      The Ledge
      Storm Warnings
      Knave of Hearts
      Blue-Eyed Felon

      3/19/16 - Today I created a new Occasional Wife Library with twelve episodes so far. In Occasional Wife (1966–1967), the lead character was Peter Christopher (Michael Callan), a bachelor who enjoyed the single life, but was blocked from professional advancement by not having a wife. Peter's boss, baby-food manufacturer Max Brahms (Jack Collins), was, because of his product, a strong believer in marriage and family. Christopher asked a young hat check girl, Greta Patterson (Patricia Harty), to pose as his wife at company functions. In return, Peter set up Greta in an apartment two floors above his own in a Manhattan building. This library is located in the Funny Guys and the Whacky Dames Catalogs.

      3/18/16 - Today I added Matt's Movie Career and Mean Grandfather to the December Bride Library, which doesn't sound like a big deal until you consider how hard it is to find ANY episodes of this series. The last time I added anything too this library was back in July! December Bride (1954-1959) was an American sitcom that aired on the CBS television network, adapted from the original CBS radio network series. December Bride centered around the adventures of Lily Ruskin, a spry widow played by Spring Byington, who was not, in fact, a "December" (rather old) bride but very much desired to become one if the right man would come along. The new library is located in the Whacky Dames Catalog and the Family Drama and Comedies Catalog. I also added The Closed Door and The Brigadier's Medals to the Schlitz Playhouse library, another library that has been slow to build. Schlitz Playhouse of Stars was an anthology series that was telecast from 1951 until 1959 on CBS. Offering both comedies and drama, the series was sponsored by the Joseph Schlitz Brewing Company. The title was shortened to Schlitz Playhouse, beginning with the fall 1957 season. Initially, the show was broadcast live, but starting in the summer of 1953, some episodes were filmed in advance. Beginning with the 1956-1957 season, all of the shows were filmed. This library is located in the Television Drama Catalog.

      3/16/16 - Tonight I added fifteen 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 Hilliard), and their young sons, David and Eric "Ricky" Nelson.

      3/15/16 - Today I added twenty episodes to The Rebel library. The Rebel is a 76-episode American western television series starring Nick Adams that aired on the ABC network from 1959 to 1961. The series portrays the adventures of young Confederate Army veteran Johnny Yuma, an aspiring writer, played by Nick Adams. Haunted by his memories of the American Civil War, Yuma, in search of inner peace, roams the American West, specifically the Texas Hill Country and the South Texas Plains. He keeps a journal of his adventures and fights injustice where he finds it with a revolver and a sawed-off double-barreled shotgun. I have 22 episodes left in my bookmarks to complete the series. This library is located in the Western Shows Catalog. The added episodes are scattered throughout the 1st and 2nd Seasons and include:

      3/14/16 - Today I went back through the Andy Griffith Show Library and started filling in the missing episodes from Seasons 2 through 4 (eighteen episodes). Ths completes the first 4 Seasons. I have all of the remaining episodes bookmarked, so when the library is done it will include the complete 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 Funny Guys Catalog and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. Four more seasons to go. The added episodes are:

      3/12/16 - Tonight I created a new National Velvet library with sixteen episodes to start. National Velvet was an American drama series that originally aired from 1960 to 1962 on NBC. Based on the novel and film of the same name, the series ran for a total of fifty-eight episodes. Lori Martin starred as Velvet Brown, a girl who lives on a dairy farm with her parents, Martha (Ann Doran) and Herbert Brown (Arthur Space), an ex-jockey Mi Taylor, played by Scottish actor James McCallion (1918-1991), her brother, Donald (Joey Scott), and sister, Edwina (Carole Wells). Velvet owned a thoroughbred stallion named King which she hoped would one day run in the Grand National Steeplechase. This library is located in the Television Drama and the Family Comedies and Drama Catalogs.

      3/11/16 - Today I created a new Tales of Wells Fargo library with eleven episodes from Season 1. Tales of Wells Fargo (1957–1962) was an American Western television series starring Dale Robertson that ran on NBC. Produced by Revue Productions, the series aired in a half-hour format until its final season when it expanded to an hour. Set in the 1870s and 1880s, Robertson portrayed special agent Jim Hardie, noted at the time as "the left-handed gun", a company troubleshooter in the American West. This library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Western Shows Catalogs.

      3/10/16 - Back in the Television Drama Catalog today. I have just added The Boy Who Walked to America, Major of St. Lo, The People and General Glancy, Dowry for Ilona and The Frightened Witness to the Dupont Theater library, which doubles the size of that library. Dupont Theater (aka Cavalcade of America) was an anthology drama series that was sponsored by the DuPont Company, although it occasionally presented a musical, such as an adaptation of Show Boat, and condensed biographies of popular composers. It was initially broadcast on radio from 1935 to 1953, and later on television from 1952 to 1957. Originally on CBS, the series pioneered the use of anthology drama for company audio advertising. While I was in the TV Drama Catalog, I also added Hand To Hand, True Confessions and Blue Landscape to The Star and the Story library. The Star and the Story is a United States television anthology series which aired 1955–1956 in first-run syndication. Henry Fonda was the host. With a new cast each week, the series featured a wide range of actors, often well-known character actors such as Edmond O'Brien and occasionally emerging stars such as Joanne Woodward (who appear in the episode Dark Stranger together). Notable directors included Blake Edwards and Robert Stevenson (director).

      3/7/16 - Today I added the final twenty-one episodes to The Lone Wolf library thus completing the series. Michael Lanyard (Louis Hayward), better known as the Lone Wolf, is a rapscallion gentleman who travels the world to fight the proponents of crime. This one-season syndicated series was released during the 1954-1955 season and produced 39 episodes. I have the entire series bookmarked, so we are a little short of half-way there. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

      3/6/16 - Today I added the last three seasons (twenty-four episodes) to the Steptoe and Son Library. The entire series is now on the site. Steptoe and Son was a classic 1960s British comedy series about a middle aged man and his elderly father who run an unsuccessful 'rag and bone' business (collecting and selling junk). Harold (the son) wants to better himself but his father always seems to ruin things, sometimes accidentally and other times deliberately. The two live in poverty and the father has some disgusting habits which continue to embarrass the son. The series was later adapted in the US as Sanford & Son, starring Redd Fox and Demond Wilson. The new libary is located in both the Funny Guys and the Family Comedies and Drama Catalogs.

      3/5/16 - Today I was able to restore my Sherlock Holmes - BBC TV Series' libraries with all forty episodes from the combined 4 iterations of the TV series from 1984 until 1994, plus two Masterpiece Theater productions from 1988 - all of which starred Jeremy Brett as the master sleuth. Sherlock Holmes is the name given to the TV series of Sherlock Holmes adaptations produced by British television company ITV Granada between 1984 and 1994, with the first two series bearing the title The Adventures Of Sherlock Holmes on screen and being followed by subsequent sub-series bearing the titles of the other short story collections by Arthur Conan Doyle. The series was broadcast on the ITV network in the UK and starred Jeremy Brett as the famous detective. His portrayal remains very popular and is accepted by some as the definitive on-screen version of Sherlock Holmes. This library is located in the Sherlock Holmes Catalog , located in the Mystery & Crime Drama, the Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. I also I added the last eighteen episode of Season 2 to the Father Knows Best library. 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.

      3/4/16 - Today I added the rest of Season 1 (twenty-six episodes) to the The Rebel library. The Rebel is a 76-episode American western television series starring Nick Adams that aired on the ABC network from 1959 to 1961. The series portrays the adventures of young Confederate Army veteran Johnny Yuma, an aspiring writer, played by Nick Adams. Haunted by his memories of the American Civil War, Yuma, in search of inner peace, roams the American West, specifically the Texas Hill Country and the South Texas Plains. He keeps a journal of his adventures and fights injustice where he finds it with a revolver and a sawed-off double-barreled shotgun. This library is located in the Western Shows Catalog.

      3/3/16 - Today I added Season 3 (twenty-four episodes) to the Bob Newhart Show Library. This completes the library with all of the episodes that are available on Hulu. The Bob Newhart Show was an American situation comedy produced by MTM Enterprises, which aired 142 half-hour episodes on CBS from September 16, 1972, to April 1, 1978. Comedian Bob Newhart portrayed a psychologist having to deal with his patients and fellow office workers. The show was filmed before a live audience. The show centers on Robert Hartley, Ph.D. (Newhart), a Chicago psychologist. It divides most of its action between the character's work and his home life, with Hartley's supportive (though occasionally sarcastic) wife Emily (Suzanne Pleshette), and their friendly but inept neighbor, airline navigator Howard Borden (Bill Daily). At the medical office where Hartley has his psychology practice are Jerry Robinson, D.D.S. (Peter Bonerz), an orthodontist who also has a practice on the floor, and their joke-loving receptionist, Carol Kester (Marcia Wallace), as well as a number of other doctors who appear occasionally. The libary is located in both the Funny Guys and the Family Comedies and Drama Catalogs.

      3/2/16 - Back in the TV Drama Catalog again. Today I added seven episodes to the Four Star Playhouse library. Four Star Playhouse (1952–1956) featured individual episodes consisting of everything from comedy to drama. The original premise was that Charles Boyer, Ida Lupino, David Niven, and Dick Powell would take turns starring in episodes. However, several other performers took the lead from time to time, including Ronald Colman and Joan Fontaine. In 1954, Billboard voted it the second best filmed network television drama series. This library is located in (where else), the Television Drama Catalog. The added episodes are: Welcome Home, Man on the Train, Love at Sea, The Bad Streak, Madeira, Madeira, Man in the Cellar and The Returning. By the way - I now have 111 episodes of the 129 that make up the complete series - I just need to find 18 more!

      3/1/16 - Today I added four episodes to the The Star and the Story Library. The Star and the Story is a United States television anthology series which aired 1955–1956 in first-run syndication. Henry Fonda was the host. With a new cast each week, the series featured a wide range of actors, often well-known character actors such as Edmond O'Brien and occasionally emerging stars such as Joanne Woodward (who appear in the episode Dark Stranger together). Notable directors included Blake Edwards and Robert Stevenson (director). The added episodes are Her Crowning Glory, Arab Duel, The Lady's Game and The Whizzer. This library can be found in the Television Drama Catalog.

      2/28/16 - Tonight (while watching the Oscars) I started restoring my Phil Silvers Show Library with eighteen episodes so far. I had a pretty extensive collection of these shows at one time - almost the entire series, but they were taken down off YouTube. In fact as I remember it, this was one of the first libraries I lost way back when. I found a cache of 33 episodes on the Internet Archive, so I have hopes that these will survive. 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 should mention that unfortunately some of these epidoes have had their opening credits edited out rather sloppily. In some cases they have managed to lop off the the first few seconds of the episode. It doesn't really ruin the experience, but it is kind of annoying. library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog. More to come.

      2/26/16 - Today I added all of the available episodes of Season 4 (21 episode) to the Andy Griffith Show Library. The last episode of this Season is the spin-off Pilot for the Gomer Pyle U.S.M.C. 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. I have recently found a large number of episodes from this series on DailyMotion, so many more to come. This library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. Four more seasons to go.

      2/24/16 - Today I added seven episodes to The Rebel library, which more than doubles the size of the library. The Rebel is a 76-episode American western television series starring Nick Adams that aired on the ABC network from 1959 to 1961. The series portrays the adventures of young Confederate Army veteran Johnny Yuma, an aspiring writer, played by Nick Adams. Haunted by his memories of the American Civil War, Yuma, in search of inner peace, roams the American West, specifically the Texas Hill Country and the South Texas Plains. He keeps a journal of his adventures and fights injustice where he finds it with a revolver and a sawed-off double-barreled shotgun. The added episodes are Judgement, Yellow Hair, Vicious Circle, School Days, Captive of Tremblor, The Legacy and Jerkwater. This library is located in the Western Shows Catalog.

      2/23/16 - This morning I created a new The Lone Wolf library with eighteen of the thirty-nine episodes that make up the complete series. Michael Lanyard (Louis Hayward), better known as the Lone Wolf, is a rapscallion gentleman who travels the world to fight the proponents of crime. This one-season syndicated series was released during the 1954-1955 season and produced 39 episodes. I have the entire series bookmarked, so we are a little short of half-way there. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

      2/22/16 - This afternoon I added four episodes to the Adventures of Jim Bowie library. We now have the first sixteen episodes of the 76 episode series. Hope to find more. 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.

      2/21/16 - Tonight I performed some housekeeping chores. I have been going through some of my older libraries looking for repairs that need to be made and discovered that my 26 Men library needed to be put into proper order and have Season, Episode and Plot Summary information added to the player pages. 26 Men was a syndicated American western television series about the Arizona Rangers, an elite group commissioned in 1901 by the legislature of the Arizona Territory and limited, for financial reasons, to twenty-six active members. The program starred Tristram Coffin as the real life Captain Thomas H. Rynning and Kelo Henderson, a Golden Boot Award winner, as Ranger Clint Travis. The series was based on true incidents with episodes centered around the Arizona Rangers' attempts to maintain order. This library contains eleven of the 78 episodes of the complete series and can be found in the Western Shows Catalog.

      2/19/16 - Late last night I added three episodes to the Ozzie and Harriet library, and then went through the library systematically and added Plot Summaries and in a few cases, Season and Episode information. This is the first large series library I put together back when I first built the site - there are 154 episodes so far. 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. The series starred Ozzie Nelson and his wife, singer Harriet Nelson (née Hilliard), and their young sons, David and Eric "Ricky" Nelson. I grew up watching this, and watching the Nelson boys grow up. When Ricky became a singing star, it was one of the things that inspired my own pursuit of a musical career. The added episodes are all on the last page of the library: Wife in the Office, Rick's Raise and Trip Trap. The library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

      After working on the Ozzie and Harriet library, it occurred too me that there was one other old library with a lot of episodes in it that I really should take a look at. The second large library I built was The Adventures of Robin Hood library, which I actually started working on while I was still building the Ozzie and Harriet library - way back in 2010. So I went over and started going through it and discovered that at some point in the last few years, Hulu decided to take down Season 3 of the series with no notification. As I have done on several occasions in recent months, I went over to Daily Motion and conducted a search. Not only did I find most of the Season 3 episodes, but I also found nine epiodes from Season 4 that weren't in the original library. So I have restored most of the 3rd Season plus the 9 new episodes of Season 4, which are the first 9 in the Season 4 library.

      2/18/16 - Today I added fourteen episodes to the Lost in Space library, which completes Season 1. 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. 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 entire series is available on Hulu, so many more to come. This library is found in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog.

      2/17/16 - Today I added Season 4 (thirty-nine episodes) to the The Donna Reed Show library. 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 library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

      2/16/16 - Today I restored my Perry Mason Library with twenty episodes from the Season 1. This increases the size of the former library by a factor of 10! 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. I have anpther 49 of these episodes bookmarked so many more to come! The restored 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.

      2/15/19 - Today I added fourteen episodes to Season 3 of 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. I have recently found a large number of episodes from this series on DailyMotion, so many more to come. This library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog. Five more seasons to go. The added videos are:

      Mr. McBeevee
      Andys Rich Girlfriend
      Andy and the New Mayor
      The Cow Thief
      Barney Mends a Broken Heart
      Lawman Barney
      The Mayberry Band
      Floyd, the Gay Deceiver
      Opies Rival
      Convicts At Large
      The Bed Jacket
      The Bank Job
      One Punch Opie
      Barney and the Govenor

      2/12/16 - Today I created a new Dorothy library with all four episodes of the original series. Dorothy Loudon (September 17, 1925 – November 15, 2003) was an American actress and singer. She won the Tony Award for Best Lead Actress in a Musical in 1977 for her performance as Miss Hannigan in Annie. Loudon was also nominated for Tony Awards for her lead performances in the musicals The Fig Leaves Are Falling and Ballroom, as well as a Golden Globe award for her appearances on The Garry Moore Show. In 1979, Loudon starred in the television series Dorothy, in which she portrayed a former showgirl teaching music and drama at a boarding school for girls. It lasted only one season (four episodes). This library is located in the Whacky Dames Catalog and the Family Comedies and Drama Catalog. On a side note - I have been quietly restoring my Gunsmoke library over the past few days. A ittle over a year ago I found 2 YouTube playlists that contains all of the Season 1 - Season 10 episodes. I decided at the time to let them sit for at least a year, which they have, and they are still there, so I decided to start rebuilding the library a little at a time. I have restored all of the episodes from the first two seasons so far and that is all I intend to do for a while. Those of you who have followed the ongoing drama of this particular library know that it has vanished on 4 occasions over the past few years, so I am being as careful as I can. For that reason, there will be no further updates on this subject. If you want to keep tabs on the library it is as easy as visiting the the first library page and looking at the Season Listings. Right now there are 2 seasons shown. As I continue to restore the library, a season at a time, that number will change. This library can be found in the Western Shows Catalog.

      2/10/16 - Today I restored the Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour library with eight episodes so far. The Lucy–Desi Comedy Hour was a collection of thirteen black-and-white one-hour specials airing occasionally from 1957 to 1960 (as opposed to a thirty-minute regular series). The first five were shown as specials during the 1957-58 television season. The remaining eight were originally shown as part of Westinghouse Desilu Playhouse. Its original network title was The Ford Lucille Ball-Desi Arnaz Show for the first season, and The Westinghouse Desilu Playhouse Presents The Lucille Ball-Desi Arnaz Show for the following seasons. The successor to the classic comedy, I Love Lucy, the programs featured the same cast members: Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, Vivian Vance, William Frawley and Little Ricky. The production schedule avoided the grind of a regular weekly series. This library is located in the Lucille Ball Catalog, which is available via the Whacky Dames Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      2/9/16 - Late last night I restored my Ben Casey Library with nine episodes from the original library, plus one I didn't have before, A Little Fun to Match the Sorrow, which costars and was directed by Jerry Lewis. Ben Casey (1961-1966) was a gritty, realistic hospital drama featuring manly Dr. Casey against the medical establishment, at first under the watchful eye of Dr. Zorba and later under the thumb of Chief of Surgery Dr. Freeland. Stars: Vince Edwards, Sam Jaffe and Jeanne Bates. Vince Edwards appeared on the TV series Breaking Point as Ben Casey. The episode was "Solo for B-Flat Clarinet" and debut 16 September 1963. Both Ben Casey and Breaking Point were produced by Bing Crosby Productions. Members of Breaking Point also had guest roles on Ben Casey. This library is located in the Television Drama Catalog.

      2/8/16 - Today I added The Eye of the Beholder, A Child Is Born, Mender McClure, No Hiding Place and Blaze of Glory 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.

      2/7/16 - A few days ago when was posting the Bob and Ray library, a regular correspondent, Keith Walters, mentioned too me that Bob Elliott's son, Chris Elliott, had a TV show called Get a Life. I had never heard of the show, but I do remember Chris Elliott from his regular appearances on the original David Letterman Show on NBC. So I have created the new library with the all of the Season 1 episodes (twenty-two of them). Get a Life is a television sitcom that was broadcast in the United States on the Fox Network from September 23, 1990, to March 8, 1992. The show stars Chris Elliott as a 30-year-old paperboy named Chris Peterson. Peterson lived in an apartment above his parents' garage (Elliott's parents are played by Elinor Donahue and his real-life father, comedian Bob Elliott). The opening credits depict Chris Peterson delivering newspapers on his bike to the show's theme song, "Stand" by R.E.M. The show was unconventional for a prime time sitcom, and many times the storylines of the episodes were surreal. For example, Elliott's character actually dies in twelve episodes. The causes of death included being crushed by a giant boulder, old age, tonsillitis, stab wounds, gunshot wounds, falling from an airplane, strangulation, getting run over by cars, choking on cereal, and simply exploding. I have the entire series bookmarked, so one more season to come. The new library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog.

      2/6/16 - Today I added seventeen more episodes of Season 2 to 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. I have recently found a large number of episodes from this series on DailyMotion, so many more to come. This library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog. The added videos are all of the Season 2 episodes found on page 3 of the library.

      2/5/16 - Today I added what appears to be the last ten episodes still in existence of Mister Peepers. This program starred Wally Cox (December 6, 1924 – February 15, 1973), an American comedian and actor, particularly associated with the early years of television in the United States. He appeared in the U.S. television series Mr. Peepers (1952–1955), plus several other popular shows, and as a character actor in over 20 films. Cox was the voice of the popular animated canine superhero Underdog. Although often cast as a meek milquetoast, he was actually quite athletic as well as a military veteran. He married three times and was best friends with Marlon Brando. This library is available in the Funny Guys Catalog and the Wally Cox Catalog. The added episodes are the last 10 listed in the library.

      2/4/16 - I read this morning that Bob Elliott passed away on Tuesday. Elliot was one half of the lengendary comedy duo, Bob and Ray. So I decided to create a Bob and Ray Library with sixteen videos so far. Half of them are clips from the Bob and Ray TV Show that ran from 1951 until 1953. The other half are later TV appearances including several from Latenight with David Letterman. Bob and Ray was an American comedy duo whose career spanned five decades. Composed of comedians Bob Elliott (1923–2016) and Ray Goulding (1922–1990), the duo's format was typically to satirize the medium in which they were performing, such as conducting radio or television interviews, with off-the-wall dialogue presented in a generally deadpan style as though it was a serious broadcast. Elliott and Goulding began as radio announcers (Elliott a disc jockey, and Goulding a news reader) in Boston with their own separate programs on station WHDH-AM, and each would visit with the other while on the air. Their informal banter was so appealing that WHDH would call on them, as a team, to fill in when Red Sox baseball broadcasts were rained out. Elliott and Goulding (not yet known as Bob and Ray) would improvise comedy routines all afternoon, and joke around with studio musicians. Elliott and Goulding's brand of humor caught on, and WHDH gave them their own weekday show in 1946. Matinee with Bob and Ray was originally a 15-minute show, soon expanding to half an hour. (When explaining why Bob was billed first, Goulding claimed that it was because "Matinee with Bob and Ray" sounded better than "Matinob with Ray and Bob".) Their trademark sign-off was "This is Ray Goulding reminding you to write if you get work" - "Bob Elliott reminding you to hang by your thumbs". For my own part, I was always a big fan of Bob and Ray growing up, but their humor was very subtle and understated, so some people (my step-father, for instance) never really "got" their jokes. I will be following up at some point with a Bob and Ray Old Time Radio library. My andy corrospondent, Keith Walters, reminded me today that Bob Elliott's son, Chris, was also a famous comedian and pointed me to episodes of his sitcom "Get a Life" that are available on YouTube, so I will be putting that library together as well. The new library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog.

      2/3/16 - Today I created a new Taxi Library with the seventeen episodes from Season 1 available from Hulu (sorry about the commercials). 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 Funny Guys Catalog.

      2/2/16 - Today I added Officer and the Lady, Last Voyage, The Book, Tusitala and Trudy to the Four Star Playhouse library. While I was at it I also replaced all of the YouTube video embeds with Internet Archive embeds, which I have been collecting for a while as backup embeds for when the YouTube videos eventually disappear. Four Star Playhouse (1952–1956) featured individual episodes consisting of everything from comedy to drama. The original premise was that Charles Boyer, Ida Lupino, David Niven, and Dick Powell would take turns starring in episodes. However, several other performers took the lead from time to time, including Ronald Colman and Joan Fontaine. In 1954, Billboard voted it the second best filmed network television drama series. This library is located in (where else), the Television Drama Catalog.

      2/1/16 - Today I added Season 5 (twenty-six episodes) to the Mister Ed Library. 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. I have the entire series bookmarked, so one more seasons to go. This library is located in the Alan Young Catalog via the Funny Guys Catalog

      1/31/16 - Today I went ahead and created a Jerry Lewis Catalog, containing the The Jerry Lewis Show library I created yesterday, eight Jerry Lewis Films and eleven Jerry Lewis Other Appearances. One of the films and most of the Other Appearances videos were already available on the site. The new Catalog is located in the Funny Guys Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      1/30/16 - I got to thinking about Jerry Lewis this evening for some reason, and was prompted to conduct a few searches and was surprised to find twenty-three episodes of The Jerry Lewis Show. The Jerry Lewis Show was the name of several separate but similar American variety, talk and comedy programs starring comedian Jerry Lewis that aired non-consecutively between September 21, 1963 – 1984. The original version of the series aired on ABC from September 21, 1963–December 21, 1963. The second version of the series aired from September 12, 1967–May 27, 1969. The final version of the series aired for a week in 1984. A show entitled Thicke of the Night was syndicated and only ran for one season before being crushed by Carson and cancelled in June 1984. Metromedia, needed a replacement, so they gave Jerry Lewis an on-air tryout in that time slot. During the week of June 18, 1984, Lewis hosted The Jerry Lewis Show. The show failed to reach audiences, and even with guests like Frank Sinatra, it still was not enough to keep viewers watching beyond its one-week trial run, and the series ended after its June 22 episode. I have four of the five shows from tha series. I also have several movies on the site that feature Lewis, and will be gathering them into a Jerry Lewis Movie Library in the near future. The new library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. Once I have built the movie library, I will incorporate both libraries into a Jerry Lewis Catalog.

      1/29/16 - Another icon of Rock passed away yesterday at the age of 74. Paul Lorin Kantner (March 17, 1941 – January 28, 2016) was an American guitarist, singer and songwriter, known for co-founding Jefferson Airplane, a leading psychedelic rock band of the counterculture era, and its more commercial spin-off band Jefferson Starship. He was born in San Francisco, California. In 1970, while still active with Jefferson Airplane, Kantner and several Bay Area musicians recorded a one-off side project under the name "Paul Kantner and the Jefferson Starship." Jefferson Airplane continued to record and perform until 1972. When the band officially broke up, Kantner revived the Jefferson Starship name and continued to record and perform with that band for the next five decades. Kantner had the longest continuous membership with the band; at times he was the only founding member still in the band from the original Jefferson Airplane lineup, and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with other band members in 1996. Unfortunately, the heyday of the Airplane was well before the advent of consumer video cameras, so I was only able to find two concerts featuring the original line-up, both shot in 1970. I did find nine concert videos of the Starship version of the band. I had the privilege to see the Airplane perform three times - once at the Winterland venue and twice in concerts at Golden Gate Park, in San Francisco in 1969. The new library os available via the Musical Programs Catalog and in the Catalog of Stars.

      1/26/16 - Today I decided to tie up a couple of loose ends and created a new Arthur Haynes Show Library with eight episodes so far. Arthur Haynes (19 May 1914 – 19 November 1966) was an English comedian and star of The Arthur Haynes Show, a comedy sketch series produced by ATV from 1956 until his death from a heart attack in 1966. Haynes also appeared on radio and in films. I have been sitting on these episodes for quite some time, hoping that I would find more of them. Today I read something that suggested that all of the series original episodes from 1956 until 1959 were lost, and that only a few of the rest remain available. This library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog and the Musical Programs Catalog. Another obscure program that I have had bookmarked for a while is The Jane Froman Show. I have created a new library with four episodes so far. The Jane Froman Show was an American musical variety television series starring singer and actress Jane Froman that aired on CBS from 1952–1955. The series originally aired under the title USA Canteen. This title was used from the show's premiere on October 18, 1952–December 30, 1952. When the series became a bi-weekly series, the title was changed to Jane Froman's U.S.A. Canteen which remained the title until July 2, 1953. From season two on, the show became known as The Jane Froman Show. Jane Froman (November 10, 1907 – April 22, 1980) was an American singer and actress. During her thirty-year career, Froman performed on stage, radio and television despite chronic injuries that she sustained from a 1943 plane crash. Her life story was told in the 1952 film With a Song in My Heart. She was portrayed by Susan Hayward, who was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance as Froman. This library is also located in the Musical Programs Catalog.

      1/23/16 - Today I added the first eleven episodes of Season 2 to 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. I have recently found a large number of episodes from this series on DailyMotion, so many more to come. This library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog. I also added two episodes, Confessions of a Nervous Man (1954) and The Remarkable Incident at Carson Corners (1954) (from Hulu) to the Studio One library. Studio One was an American radio–television anthology drama series. Sponsored by Westinghouse Electric Corporation, the television series was seen on CBS (which Westinghouse owned between 1995 and 2000), from 1948 through 1958, under several variant titles: Studio One Summer Theatre, Studio One in Hollywood, Summer Theatre, Westinghouse Studio One and Westinghouse Summer Theatre. It was telecast in black-and-white only. Offering a wide range of dramas, Studio One received Emmy nominations every year from 1950 to 1958. The series staged some notable and memorable teleplays among its 467 episodes. Some created such an impact they were adapted into theatrical films. This library is located in the Television Drama Catalog.

      1/22/16 - Today I added ten more episodes to the Make Room for Daddy library. The Danny Thomas Show (known as Make Room for Daddy during the first three seasons) is 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. Episodes regularly featured music as part of the plot by Danny Thomas, guest stars and occasionally by other cast members. This library is located in the Danny Thomas Catalog which can be accessed via the Funny Guys Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. The added episodes are:

      Family Troubles
      Hollywood Trip
      Terry's Boyfriend
      Margaret Feels Neglected
      Danny's Palladium Offer
      Terry's Party
      Who Can Figure Kids?
      Danny Goes on a USO Tour
      Kathy Crashes TV and
      Danny and Durante

      1/21/16 - Tonight I created a new How to Marry a Millionaire with four episodes of the 1957-1959 television series, which is all I have been able to find after extensive searches. I have also posted the original 1953 feature film by the same name starring Marilyn Monroe. How to Marry a Millionaire, a 1953 American romantic comedy film directed by Jean Negulesco and written and produced by Nunnally Johnson, stars Betty Grable, Marilyn Monroe, and Lauren Bacall as three gold diggers, along with William Powell, David Wayne, Rory Calhoun, and Cameron Mitchell. Resourceful Schatze Page (Lauren Bacall), spunky Loco Dempsey (Betty Grable), and ditzy Pola Debevoise (Marilyn Monroe) rent a luxurious Sutton Place penthouse in New York City from Freddie Denmark (David Wayne), who is avoiding the IRS by living in Europe. The women plan to use the apartment to attract rich men and marry them. The TV series that aired in syndication and on the NTA Film Network, from October 7, 1957 to August 20, 1959 was based on the 1953 film and starred Lori Nelson, Merry Anders, and Barbara Eden. Lisa Gaye joined the cast in the second season after Lori Nelson left the series. How to Marry a Millionaire was one of the first television sitcoms based on a feature film, and was the first series that Barbara Eden was featured in as a regular cast member. Eden would go on to play one of her more notable roles, "Jeannie" in the NBC sitcom I Dream of Jeannie. This library is located in the Whacky Dames Catalog. I also restored four more episodes to the Bachelor Father library, including Finishing School, The Kleptomaniac, Friendly Witness and Where There's a Will. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Drama Catalog.

      1/20/16 - I also read yesterday about the passing of Glenn Frey, one of the founders of The Eagles and so spent several hours searching for Eagles concert videos with surprising results. I thought I had about dozen videos bookmarked, but as I was sorting them out I realized that they were all duplicates of just four concert videos. So, despite my disappointment, I went ahead and created the new library with the four concert vidoes, ranging from a 1977 concert at the Capitol Center in Washington D.C. to a 2014 appearance in Belgium, plus the documentary/concert film - Hell Freezes Over (1994). I will keep my eyes open in hopes of adding more videos in the future. Glenn Lewis Frey (November 6, 1948 – January 18, 2016) was an American singer, songwriter, producer and actor, best known as a founding member of rock band the Eagles. During the 1970s, Frey played guitar with the band, as well as piano and keyboards. Alongside Don Henley, Frey was one of the primary singers of the Eagles; he sang lead vocals on songs such as "Take It Easy", "Peaceful Easy Feeling", "Tequila Sunrise", "Already Gone", "Lyin' Eyes", "New Kid in Town" and "Heartache Tonight". After the breakup of the Eagles in 1980, Frey embarked on a successful solo career. He released his debut album, No Fun Aloud, in 1982 and went on to record Top 40 hits "The One You Love", "Smuggler's Blues", "Sexy Girl", "The Heat Is On", "You Belong to the City", "True Love", "Soul Searchin'" and "Livin' Right". As a member of the Eagles, Frey won six Grammy Awards, and five American Music Awards. The Eagles were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998, the first year they were nominated. Consolidating his solo recordings and those with the Eagles, Frey released 24 Top 40 singles on the Billboard Hot 100. For my own part, I was a huge fan of Country-Rock in the mid-to-late 1960s, in fact my favorite rock band of all time was The Buffalo Springfield. I used to follow them around to see them live at various rock clubs in the Los Angeles area. By the time the Eagles showed up, I had turned the corner towards blues and jazz so I didn't pay much attention too them. When they came back together I saw their comeback concert movie and became a fan. My wife and I saw them live once in the 1995 at the Shoreline Ampitheater in Burlingame, CA. The new library os available via the Musical Programs Catalog and in the Catalog of Stars.

      1/19/16 - Today I read of the passing of Noreen Corcoran, who played the teenaged girl, Kelly, on the Bachelor Father TV series. I decided to look for some episodes to add too the library and was able to find Bentley and the P.T.A., The Girl Scouts, The Lady Doctor, A Date, Birthday Gift and Blossom Comes to Visit. This was the first time I have added episodes since I built the library in 2010. Bachelor Father was an American sitcom starring John Forsythe, Noreen Corcoran and Sammee Tong. The series first premiered on CBS in September 1957 before moving to NBC for the third season in 1959. The series' fifth and final season aired on ABC for the rest of the show's run. Bachelor Father followed the adventures of Bentley Gregg, a wealthy bachelor attorney living in Beverly Hills who assumed the responsibility of raising his niece, Kelly (Noreen Corcoran), after her parents died in an automobile accident. Other members of the cast included houseboy Peter Tong (Sammee Tong), teenage neighbor and Kelly's on and off boyfriend, Howard Meechum (Jimmy Boyd), Kelly's best friend, Ginger Farrell (Bernadette Withers) and Jasper, the dog. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Drama Catalog.

      1/18/16 - This morning I restored my Death Valley Days Library, which lost most of it's episodes from YouTube some time back, but I failed to notice it until yesterday. I managed to find a recent cache of episodes on the Internet Archive and was able to restore all but two episodes from the original library. Death Valley Days was an American radio and television anthology series featuring true stories of the old American West. Created in 1930 by Ruth Woodman, the program was broadcast on radio until 1945 and continued from 1952 to 1970 as a syndicated television series, with reruns (updated with new narrations) continuing through August 1, 1975. The radio and TV versions combined to make the show one of the longest-running western programs in broadcast history. This library can be found in the Western Shows Catalog.

      1/17/16 - Today I added nineteen more episodes to the Andy Griffith Show Library. The added episodes are Christmas Story and all of the remaining episodes of Season 1 starting with Those Gossipin' Men. Season 1 is now complete. 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. Regarding the time-period of the show, Griffith said in a Today Show interview: "Well, though we never said it, and though it was shot in the 1960s, it had a feeling of the 1930s. It was when we were doing it, of a time gone by." The series never placed lower than seventh in the Nielsen ratings and ended its final season at number one. I have recently found a large number of episodes from this series on the Internet Archive and DailyMotion, so many more to come. This library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog.

      1/16/16 - Today I added two more episodes too the Dinah Shore Show library. Dinah Shore (born Frances Rose Shore; February 29, 1916 – February 24, 1994) was an American singer, actress, television personality, and the top-charting female vocalist of the 1940s. She reached the height of her popularity as a recording artist during the Big Band era of the 1940s and 1950s, but achieved even greater success a decade later, in television, mainly as hostess of a series of variety programs for Chevrolet. The library is located in the Musical Programs Catalog and in the Catalog of Stars. I also restored eleven episodes of the Hennesey Library that vanished for the second time a couple months ago. These are from the Internet Archive so I have hopes that they will last a while. Hennesey was an American military sitcom/drama television series that aired on CBS from 1959 to 1962, starring Jackie Cooper. Located in the Jackie Cooper Cataog which is located in the Funny Guys Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      1/14/16 - Today I added Seasons 4 and 5 (fourteen episodes) to the Steptoe and Son Library. Steptoe and Son was a classic 1960s British comedy series about a middle aged man and his elderly father who run an unsuccessful 'rag and bone' business (collecting and selling junk). Harold (the son) wants to better himself but his father always seems to ruin things, sometimes accidentally and other times deliberately. The two live in poverty and the father has some disgusting habits which continue to embarrass the son. The series was later adapted in the US as Sanford & Son, starring Redd Fox and Demond Wilson. The entire series (57 episodes) is available and bookmarked, so many more to come. The new libary is located in both the Funny Guys and the Family Comedies and Drama Catalogs.

      1/13/16 - Today I added A Matter of Advice, Psychopathic Horse, The Firing Squad and Here Comes the Suit to the Four Star Playhouse library. Four Star Playhouse (1952–1956) featured individual episodes consisting of everything from comedy to drama. The original premise was that Charles Boyer, Ida Lupino, David Niven, and Dick Powell would take turns starring in episodes. However, several other performers took the lead from time to time, including Ronald Colman and Joan Fontaine. In 1954, Billboard voted it the second best filmed network television drama series. This library is located in (where else), the Television Drama Catalog.

      1/11/16 - This morning I read of the passing of David Bowie yesterday at 69 years of age. I have to admit that I was never a big fan of his music - not my "cup of tea", but his talent was undeniable and and I certainly admired his showmanship. In a career lasting over 30 years, he sold out concert venues all of the World. So I have assembled a David Bowie Library with seventeen videos. The first is a clip from his Ziggy Stardust period, 2 of them are documentary features and the rest are all full concerts. David Robert Jones (8 January 1947 – 10 January 2016), known professionally as David Bowie, was an English singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, arranger, painter and actor. He was a figure in popular music for over four decades, and was considered by critics and other musicians as an innovator, particularly for his work in the 1970s. His androgynous appearance was an iconic element of his image, principally in the 1970s and 1980s. The new library is located in the Musical Programs Catalog and in the Catalog of Stars.

      1/9/16 - Last night I watched a really interesting documentary on Netflix about Don Rickles and decided it was time to create a new Don Rickles Library, with twenty-three of his TV appearances on such shows as The Tonight Show, Merv Griffin, David Letterman, Larry King, etc., plus an episode of the short-lived (17 weeks) Don Rickles Show which aired in 1969 and a selections of out takes from that series. Donald Jay "Don" Rickles (born May 8, 1926) is an American stand-up comedian, voice actor, and actor. Best known as an insult comic, he is also an actor, playing both comedic and dramatic roles on film. He received widespread exposure as a frequent guest on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson and Late Show with David Letterman. The new library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      1/8/16 - Today I added Season 4 (thirty episodes) to the The Untouchables Library, which completes the series with all the episodes accounted for. 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. 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.

      1/7/16 - Today I added Season 3 (thirty-eight episodes) to the The Donna Reed Show library. 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 library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

      1/6/16 - Today I added twenty-two episodes to the The Doris Day Show, bringing us to Season 2 Episode 17. While I was at it I also added four films to the Doris Day Film library, including:

      The Thrill of it All (1967)
      Caprice (1967)

      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).

The Doris Day Show can also be found in the Whacky Dames an the Family Comedies & Drama Catalogs.

      1/5/16 - Today I added ten episodes to the Make Room for Daddy library. This is the first time I have added episodes since the library was created in 2010, and these ten episodes doubles the size of the library and are the first 10 episodes in the listings. The Danny Thomas Show (known as Make Room for Daddy during the first three seasons) is 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. Episodes regularly featured music as part of the plot by Danny Thomas, guest stars and occasionally by other cast members. I always thought of this show as being a slightly altered version of I Love Lucy. Danny Williams entertained at the Copa Club (where Ricky Ricardo also worked). and his family were immigrants from Lebanon (as opposed to Cuba - where Ricky came from). Also the show was produced by Desilu Studios. This library os located in the Danny Thomas Catalog which can be accessed via the Funny Guys Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      1/4/16 - Today I added twenty-five episodes to the My Favorite Martian Library which brings us to Season 2, Episode 15. These are from Hulu (sorry about the commercials) and the entire series, minus three episodes, are there so many more to come! 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 Funny Guys and the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalogs.

      1/3/16 - Tonight I added seventeen episodes to the Lone Ranger TV Show library. Hulu has all but 5 episodes of the entire series available, so many more to come. The Lone Ranger was a TV show that aired for eight seasons, from 1949 to 1957, and starred Clayton Moore as the Lone Ranger and Jay Silverheels as Tonto. Only five of the eight seasons had new episodes. 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.

      1/2/16 - Today I added Season 4 (thirty episodes) to my Rawhide library. This library is now half complete. 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 have the entire series bookmarked, so many more to come! This library is located in the Western Shows Catalog.

      1/1/16 - Today I added five episodes too the Topper TV Series Library.

The series was broadcast on CBS from October 9, 1953 to July 15, 1955, and starrd Leo G. Carroll in the title role. It finished at #24 in the Nielsen ratings for the 1954-1955 season. Topper also earned an Emmy nomination for Best Situation Comedy in 1954. Sophisticated but stuffy Cosmo Topper (Carroll) is the vice president of a bank, married to sweet (but rather clueless) Henrietta. They live in a Los Angeles house they bought from the estate of a young couple, George and Marion Kerby, who died after being swept away by an avalanche. A St. Bernard, Neil, who attempted to rescue them also died with them. Topper discovers his new home is haunted by the former occupants as well as Neil. Strangely, he is the only one able to see or hear them. Neil, the St. Bernard, loves martinis and a running gag is the invisible dog lapping up the drink. This library is located in the Topper Catalog which is can be found in the Funny Guys Catalog. The added episodes are:

      Uncle Jonathan
      Legacy
      Topper Goes West
      Sweepstakes
      George's Old Flame

      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
