At present there are more than 25,000 individual programs available including episodic TV shows, specials, and Short Format and Feature length films. There are now search engines like the one above installed on the Front Door Page and the Main Library Page to make finding your favorite shows easier.

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

      Updates | Back to the Front Door


      1020/17 - Today I added the last twelve episodes to Season 3 of the Dennis the Menace library. Dennis the Menace was an American sitcom based on the Hank Ketcham comic strip of the same name and preceded The Ed Sullivan Show on Sunday evenings on CBS from October 1959 to July 1963. The series stars Jay North as Dennis Mitchell; Herbert Anderson as his father, Henry; Gloria Henry as his mother, Alice; Joseph Kearns as George Wilson, Gale Gordon as George's brother, John Wilson, Sylvia Field as George's wife, Martha Wilson, and Sara Seegar as John's wife, Eloise Wilson.

      10/19/17 - Today I added twenty episodes to Season 2 of the Wagon Train library. Wagon Train was an American Western series that ran on NBC 1957–62 and then on ABC 1962–65. The series initially starred veteran movie supporting actor Ward Bond as the wagon master, later replaced upon his death by John McIntire, and Robert Horton as the scout, subsequently replaced by Scott Miller and Robert Fuller. The show chronicles the adventures of a wagon train as it makes its way from Missouri to California, and most episodes featured a guest star who played the part of the character for which the episode was titled. This library is located in the Western Shows Catalog. The history of this library is checkered at best. I built the original library with about a dozen episodes I found on the Internet Archive. About a year later I added about 60 episodes from YouTube, but they all vanished within a few weeks. Over the years since I have found single episodes here and there and eventualy had 30 episodes. Recently I discovered and bookmarked a large cache of episodes and will be expanding the library substantially over the next few months. The added episodes are:

TV Guide, TV Land, and A&E named the Newhart series finale as one of the most memorable in television history. Ths was the 2nd iteration of the Bob Newhart Show. This library can be found in the Funny Guys Catalog . I still have the bulk of the episodes of Seasons 5 through 8 the series, so many more to come. I should mention that a few weeks ago I lost all of the Season 1 and 2 episodes when the Internet Archive playlist of those episodes was taken down. I am searching for replacemens but have had no luck so far.

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

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

      10/13/17 - Today I added the twelve available episodes (from Hulu) of Season 4 to the The Odd Couple library. The success of The Odd Couple film in 1968 was the basis for the 1970–75 ABC television sitcom, produced by Garry Marshall and starring Tony Randall as Felix and Jack Klugman as Oscar. Klugman was familiar with the role as he had replaced Walter Matthau in the original Broadway run. Neil Simon originally disapproved of this adaptation, but by the series' final season, he reassessed the show positively to the point of appearing in a cameo role. This library is located in the Garry Marshall Catalog which is available via the Catalog of Stars and the Comedy Show Catalog, where The Odd Couple library also resides separately.

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

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

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

      10/7/17 - Today I added the remaining twenty episodes to Season 3 of the The Real McCoys library. The Real McCoys revolves around the lives of a family from the Appalachian Mountains who originally hailed from fictional Smokey Corners, West Virginia. The McCoys moved to California and became dirt farmers. The family consisted of Grandpa Amos McCoy (Walter Brennan); his grandson Luke (Richard Crenna), Luke's new bride Kate (Kathy Nolan), Luke's teenage sister Tallahassie "Hassie" (Lydia Reed), and his 11-year-old brother Little Luke (Michael Winkelman). The double-naming of the brothers was explained in the first episode by the elder Luke: Because their parents were so excited over the birth of the younger boy, "they forgot all about me!" Only Crenna was in every episode. I still have numerous episodes yet to post so more to come! The restored library is located in the Family Comedy & Drama Shows Catalog. The added episodes are all of them on the 5th library page. I have 2 Seasons left to post, so more to come!

      10/6/17 - Today I added ten episodes to Season 3 of the Route 66 Library. Route 66 followed two young men traversing the United States in a Chevrolet Corvette convertible, and the events and consequences surrounding their journeys. Martin Milner starred as Tod Stiles, a recent college graduate with no future prospects due to circumstances beyond his control. He was originally joined on his travels by Buz Murdock, a friend and former employee of his father (played by George Maharis), with the character leaving midway through the third season after contracting echovirus. Near the end of the third season Tod met a recently discharged Vietnam veteran named Lincoln Case, played by Glenn Corbett, who decided to follow Tod on his travels and stayed with him until the final episode.

Set in Hawaii, the show originally aired for 12 seasons from 1968 to 1980, and continues in reruns. At the airing of its very last episode, it was the longest running cop show in television history at that time. Jack Lord portrayed Detective Captain Steve McGarrett, the head of a special state police task force which was based on an actual unit that existed under martial law in the 1940s. The theme music composed by Morton Stevens became especially popular. Many episodes would end with McGarrett instructing his subordinate to "Book 'em, Danno!", sometimes specifying a charge such as "murder one". I have found a substantial cache of episodes from 10 of the 12 Seasons of the series on Daily Motion, so many more to come The library is available in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog. The added episodes are all on the 2nd page of the library - the last seven episodes of Season 2 and the first six episodes of Season 3. Lots more to come!

      10/3/17 - Today I restored sixty-seven episodes to my Perry Mason Library. In 1956, Raymond Burr auditioned for the role of District Attorney Hamilton Burger in Perry Mason, a new courtroom drama based on the highly successful novels written and created by Erle Stanley Gardner that was to air on CBS. The producers of the show allowed Burr to try for the title role and when Gardner, who was present at the audition, saw him he declared, "He is Perry Mason." Burr eventually won the role with which he was most closely identified. This library can be found in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog, and also in the Raymond Burr Catalog, which is also located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog, plus the Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. I still have twenty-seven episodes bookmarked that weren't in the original library, and will add them in the coming weeks.

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

This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas catalog, and also the Robert Young Catalog, which is available via the Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      9/29/17 - For the last several days I have been going through some of my oldest libraries looking for missing videos (usually YouTube content) an have managed to restored all of them for several libraries. This morning I checked out the Roy Rogers Show library and found about a dozen missing episodes and was able to restore all of them - plus, I found four episodes that were not in the original library.

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.

The fictional Ellery Queen created by Dannay and Lee is a mystery writer and amateur detective who helps his father, a New York City police inspector, solve baffling murders. Throught the years, many different actors portrayed Queen in movies and television.

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.

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.

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

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

      9/7/17 - Today I added the twenty-one episodes of Season 3 to the Babylon 5 library. Set between the years 2257 and 2262, it depicts a future where Earth has sovereign states, and a unifying Earth government. Colonies within the solar system, and beyond, make up the Earth Alliance, and contact has been made with other spacefaring species. The ensemble cast portray alien ambassadorial staff and humans assigned to the 5-mile long Babylon 5 space station, a center for trade and diplomacy. Described as "one of the most complex programs on television", the various story arcs drew upon the prophesies, religious zealotry, racial tensions, social pressures, and political rivalries which existed within each of their cultures, to create a contextual framework for the motivations and consequences of the protagonists' actions. With a strong emphasis on character development set against a backdrop of conflicting ideologies on multiple levels. At the beginning of Season 2, Captain John Sheridan (Bruce Boxleitner) is installed as the new military governor of the station. This library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog. Many of these videos have been inverted - meaning that they are shown as "mirror images" of the originals. I have most of the series episodes, plus 6 TV movies based on the series, bookmarked, so many more to come!

      9/6/17 - Today I added the sixteen remaining available episodes to The Waltons library, including thirteen from Season 7, two from Season 8 and one from Season 9. 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 completes the library until I find more episodes. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

      9/5/17 - Today I added the twenty-three available episodes to Season 5 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 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.

      9/4/17 - Today I created a new Amazing Stories library with twenty-three of the twenty-four episodes of Season 1. Amazing Stories was a fantasy, horror, and science fiction television anthology series created by Steven Spielberg. It originally ran on NBC in the United States from 1985 to 1987. The series was nominated for 12 Emmy Awards and won five. The first season episode "The Amazing Falsworth" earned writer Mick Garris an Edgar Award for Best Episode in a TV Series. It was not a ratings hit (ranking 40th in Season 1 and 52nd in Season 2), however, and the network did not renew it after the two-year contract expired. The 1987 science fiction movie *batteries not included was originally intended to be featured in Amazing Stories, but Steven Spielberg liked the idea so much that he decided to make it a theatrical release. The series title licensed the name of Amazing Stories, the first dedicated science fiction magazine. The new library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror. These are all the episodes I've found of the series thus far, so the library is complete until I find more of them. The videos are all auto-play and can't be viewed individually with an Internet Explorer browser. To view all of the videos on IE you can go to the Amazing Stories Playlist

      9/2/17 - Today I added all eighteen available episodes of Season 4 of the Petticoat Junction library. Petticoat Junction was an American situation comedy that originally aired on CBS. The series takes place at the Shady Rest Hotel, which is run by Kate Bradley, her Uncle Joe Carson, and her three daughters Billie Jo, Bobbie Jo, and Betty Jo Bradley. The series is one of three interrelated shows about rural characters created by Paul Henning. Petticoat Junction was created upon the success of Henning's previous rural/urban-themed sitcom The Beverly Hillbillies (1962–1971). The success of Petticoat Junction led to a spin-off, Green Acres (1965–1971). This library is located in the Paul Henning, Family Comedies and Dramas, Funny Guys and the Whacky Dames Catalogs. I have episodes of Seasons 5, 6 and 7 to add - so many more to come!

      8/30/17 - Today I added the first twelve episodes of Season 6 to the Father Knows Best library. Father Knows Best was an American sitcom starring Robert Young, Jane Wyatt, Elinor Donahue, Billy Gray, and Lauren Chapin. The series, which first began on radio in 1949, aired for six seasons with a total of 203 episodes. The series debuted on CBS in October 1954. It ran for one season and was canceled the following year. NBC picked up the series where it remained for three seasons. After a second cancellation in 1958, CBS picked up the series yet again where it aired until May 1960. The popular radio show came to life in this hit sitcom about a wise family man, Jim Anderson, played by Robert Young, his common-sense wife Margaret and their children Betty, Bud and Kathy. Whenever the kids need advice on anything at all, they can always turn to their father, because father knows best. I have more of the Season 6 episodes bookmarked, so more to come.

      8/27/17 - Today I created a new Fawlty Towers library with all twelve episodes of the complete series. Fawlty Towers (1975/1979) was a BBC television sitcom broadcast on BBC2 in 1975 and 1979. Twelve episodes were made (two seasons of six episodes each). The show was created and written by John Cleese and Connie Booth, who both also starred in the show. They were married at the time of series 1, but divorced before recording season 2. One of the best loved shows in British popular culture, it was ranked No. 1 on a list of the 100 Greatest British Television Programmes drawn up by the British Film Institute in 2000. The new library is located in the Funny Guys and the Whacky Dames Catalogs.

      8/26/17 - Today I added the twelve available (from Hulu) episodes of Season 3 to the The Odd Couple library. The success of The Odd Couple film in 1968 was the basis for the 1970–75 ABC television sitcom, produced by Garry Marshall and starring Tony Randall as Felix and Jack Klugman as Oscar. Klugman was familiar with the role as he had replaced Walter Matthau in the original Broadway run. Neil Simon originally disapproved of this adaptation, but by the series' final season, he reassessed the show positively to the point of appearing in a cameo role. This library is located in the Garry Marshall Catalog which is available via the Catalog of Stars and the Comedy Show Catalog, where The Odd Couple library also resides separately.

      8/25/17 - Today I added the first twenty episodes to Season 4 of 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!

      8/22/17 - Today I added seventeen episodes to Season 3 of the Route 66 Library.

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.

It stars Robin Williams as Mork, an extraterrestrial who comes to Earth from the planet Ork in a small, one-Orkan egg-shaped spaceship. Pam Dawber co-stars as Mindy McConnell, his human friend, roommate, and eventually, wife, and mother of his child. The character of Mork is played by a then-unknown Robin Williams, who impressed producer Garry Marshall with his quirky comedic ability as soon as they met. When Williams was asked to take a seat at the audition, Williams immediately sat on his head on the chair and Marshall cast him on the spot, and later wryly commented that Williams was the only alien who auditioned for the role.

The double-naming of the brothers was explained in the first episode by the elder Luke: Because their parents were so excited over the birth of the younger boy, "they forgot all about me!"

TV Guide, TV Land, and A&E named the Newhart series finale as one of the most memorable in television history. Ths was the 2nd iteration of the Bob Newhart Show. This library can be found in the Funny Guys Catalog . I have the bulk of the episodes of all 8 seasons pf the series, so many more to come.

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

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

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

      8/15/17 - Today I added/restored twenty episodes to Season 4 of the The Beverly Hillibillies Library.

The Beverly Hillbillies 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.

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

      8/13/17 - Today I added twenty-two episodes to the original UK version of the Whose Line It It, Anyway? library. Whose Line Is It Anyway? (1988-1997) was a short-form improvisational comedy TV show. The show consisted of a panel of four performers who created characters, scenes and songs on the spot, in the style of short-form improvisation games, many taken from theatresports. Topics for the games were based on either audience suggestions or predetermined prompts from the host. The UK Host was Clive Anderson.

According to Jim (2001–2009) was an American sitcom television series starring Jim Belushi (the younger brother of comic actor John Belushi) in the title role as a suburban father of three children (five children starting with the season-seven finale). Also Stars: Courtney Thorne-Smith and Larry Joe Campbell. Jim is a lovable suburban father.

Together with his wife Cheryl, they have three children, daughters Ruby and Gracie and son Kyle. In the seventh season they become parents of twins Jonathan and Gordon. The new library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

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

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

      8/7/17 - Today I added the fourteen available (from Hulu) episodes of Season 2 to the The Odd Couple library. The success of The Odd Couple film in 1968 was the basis for the 1970–75 ABC television sitcom, produced by Garry Marshall and starring Tony Randall as Felix and Jack Klugman as Oscar. Klugman was familiar with the role as he had replaced Walter Matthau in the original Broadway run. Neil Simon originally disapproved of this adaptation, but by the series' final season, he reassessed the show positively to the point of appearing in a cameo role. This library is located in the Garry Marshall Catalog which is available via the Catalog of Stars and the Comedy Show Catalog, where The Odd Couple library also resides separately.

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

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

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

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

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.

Humanity had been storing its nuclear waste in vast disposal sites on the far side of the Moon, but when an unknown form of electromagnetic radiation is detected, the accumulated waste reaches critical mass and causes a massive thermonuclear explosion on September 13, 1999. The force of the blast propels the Moon like an enormous booster rocket, hurling it out of Earth orbit and into deep space at colossal speed, thus stranding the 311 personnel stationed on Moonbase Alpha. Starring Martin Landau and Barbara Bain (both of whom previously starred in Mission Impossible), and Nick Tate. This library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog.

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

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

TV Guide, TV Land, and A&E named the Newhart series finale as one of the most memorable in television history. Ths was the 2nd iteration of the Bob Newhart Show. This library can be found in the Funny Guys Catalog . I have the bulk of the episodes of all 8 seasons pf the series, so many more to come.

      7/25/17 - Today I added twenty-six episodes to Season 2 of the Route 66 Library. Route 66 followed two young men traversing the United States in a Chevrolet Corvette convertible, and the events and consequences surrounding their journeys. Martin Milner starred as Tod Stiles, a recent college graduate with no future prospects due to circumstances beyond his control. He was originally joined on his travels by Buz Murdock, a friend and former employee of his father (played by George Maharis), with the character leaving midway through the third season after contracting echovirus. Near the end of the third season Tod met a recently discharged Vietnam veteran named Lincoln Case, played by Glenn Corbett, who decided to follow Tod on his travels and stayed with him until the final episode.

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

      7/23/17 - Today I added the available (from Hulu) fifteen episodes to Season 3 of the Night Gallery library, thus completing the library with 43 of the 50 episodes that make up the complete series.

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

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

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

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

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

      7/19/17 - Today I added seventeen episodes to the Sanford and Son library. Sanford and Son was an American sitcom that ran on the NBC television network from January 14, 1972, to March 25, 1977. It was based on the BBC Television program Steptoe and Son. Known for its edgy racial humor, running gags and catchphrases, the series was adapted by Norman Lear and considered NBC's answer to CBS's All in the Family. Sanford and Son has been hailed as the precursor to many other African American sitcoms. It was a ratings hit throughout its six-season run. While the role of Fred G. Sanford was known for his bigotry and cantankerousness, the role of Lamont Sanford was that of a conscientious peacemaker. At times, both characters would involve themselves in schemes, usually as a means of earning cash quickly in order to pay off their various debts. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas and Funny Guys Catalogs

      7/18/17 - Today I added all twety-two episodes to Season 2 of the Miami Vice library. Miami Vice (1984-1989) was an American television crime drama series produced for NBC. The series starred Don Johnson as James "Sonny" Crockett and Philip Michael Thomas as Ricardo "Rico" Tubbs, two Metro-Dade Police Department detectives working undercover in Miami. Unlike standard police procedurals, the show drew heavily upon 1980s New Wave culture and music. The show became noted for its integration of music and visual effects. It has been called one of the "Top 50 TV Shows". People magazine stated that Miami Vice was the "first show to look really new and different since color TV was invented" This library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

      7/17/17 - Today I added the last sixteen available episodes of Season 4 to the 77 Sunset Strip Library.

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.

Rod Serling, who had gained fame from an earlier series, The Twilight Zone, served both as the on-air host of Night Gallery and as a major contributor of scripts, although he did not have the same control of content and tone as he had on The Twilight Zone. This series generally focused more on horror and suspense than The Twilight Zone did.

      7/8/17 - Today I created a new The Odd Couple library with the nineteen available episodes (from Hulu) to start. The success of The Odd Couple film in 1968 was the basis for the 1970–75 ABC television sitcom, produced by Garry Marshall and starring Tony Randall as Felix and Jack Klugman as Oscar. Klugman was familiar with the role as he had replaced Walter Matthau in the original Broadway run. Neil Simon originally disapproved of this adaptation, but by the series' final season, he reassessed the show positively to the point of appearing in a cameo role. I realized, after I posted the Lavern & Shirley library yesterday, that it was also a Garry Marshall production and that I already had two other Garry Marshall shows (Happy Days and Mork & Mindy), so I decided it was time to create a Garry Marshall Catalog to house all four of the series'. Garry Kent Marshall (November 13, 1934 – July 19, 2016) was an American actor, director, producer, writer, and voice artist best known for creating Happy Days and its various spin-offs, developing Neil Simon's 1965 play The Odd Couple for television, and directing Pretty Woman, Runaway Bride, Valentine's Day, New Year's Eve, Mother's Day, The Princess Diaries, and The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement. In 1961, he moved to Hollywood, where he teamed up with Jerry Belson as a writer for television. The pair worked on The Dick Van Dyke Show, The Joey Bishop Show, The Danny Thomas Show, and The Lucy Show. Their first television series as creator-producers was Hey, Landlord, which lasted one season (1966–67). Then they adapted Neil Simon's play The Odd Couple for television. On his own, Marshall created Happy Days, Laverne and Shirley (starring his sister Penny), and Mork & Mindy. The Garry Marshall Catalog is available via the Catalog of Stars and the Comedy Show Catalog, where The Odd Couple library also resides.

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

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

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

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

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

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

      While I was in that catalog, I decided to add the six episodes I had bookmarked to the Ozzie & Harriet library. The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet was an American sitcom, airing on ABC from October 3, 1952, through March 26, 1966, starring the real-life Nelson family. After a long run on radio, the show was brought to television, where it continued its success, initially running simultaneously on radio and television. The series stars Ozzie Nelson and his wife, singer Harriet Nelson (née Snyder, professionally), and their young sons, David and Eric "Ricky" Nelson. The added episodes, which are spread out throughout several Seasons, are:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

      6/24/17 - Today I created a new Newhart Library with all twenty-two episodes of Season 1. Newhart was an American sitcom that aired on CBS. The series starred Bob Newhart and Mary Frann as an author and wife who own and operate an inn located in a small, rural Vermont town that is home to many eccentric characters. TV Guide, TV Land, and A&E named the Newhart series finale as one of the most memorable in television history. Ths was the 2nd iteration of the Bob Newhart Show. Since I also have the original series, I have created a Bob Newhart Catalog to house both series'. The new catalog is located in the Catalog of Stars. Both series can also be found in the Funny Guys Catalog .

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

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

      6/19/17 - Today I added twenty-three episodes to the Thriller library, which completes the library until I find the missing episodes. Thriller (1960-1962) (also known as Boris Karloff's Thriller) was an American anthology television series that aired on NBC. The show featured host Boris Karloff introducing a mix of macabre horror tales and suspense thrillers. In addition to serving as the host of the series, Karloff also starred in five episodes: "The Prediction," "The Premature Burial," "The Last of the Sommervilles," "Dialogues With Death," and "The Incredible Doctor Markesan. This library is available in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror and the Boris Karloff Catalogs. The added episodes are all of them on the last 2 library pages.

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

      6/16/17 - Today I created a new Miami Vice library with the twenty-one available episodes of Season 1 to start. Miami Vice (1984-1989) was an American television crime drama series produced for NBC. The series starred Don Johnson as James "Sonny" Crockett and Philip Michael Thomas as Ricardo "Rico" Tubbs, two Metro-Dade Police Department detectives working undercover in Miami. Unlike standard police procedurals, the show drew heavily upon 1980s New Wave culture and music. The show became noted for its integration of music and visual effects. It has been called one of the "Top 50 TV Shows". People magazine stated that Miami Vice was the "first show to look really new and different since color TV was invented" The new library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

      6/8/17 - Today I added fifteen episodes to the Stagecoach West library. Stagecoach West (1960-1961) was an American Western drama television series which ran for thirty-eight episodes on the ABC network. Characters Luke Perry (played by Wayne Rogers) and Simon Kane (Robert Bray) operate the Timberland Stage Line from fictitious Outpost, Missouri to San Francisco, California.

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

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

      6/5/17 - Today I added the last fourteen episodes to Seasons 5 and 6 of the Hogan's Heroes library (thanks again to Daily Motion). Hogan's Heroes (1965-1971) was an American television sitcom set in a German prisoner of war (POW) camp during World War II. It ran on the CBS network. Bob Crane starred as Colonel Robert E.

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

      6/3/17 - Today I added all nineteen available episodes (from Hulu) to Season 4 of the Taxi Library.

The show focuses on the employees of the fictional Sunshine Cab Company, and its principal setting is the company's fleet garage in Manhattan. Among the drivers, only Alex Rieger, who is disillusioned with life, considers cab driving his profession. The others view it as a temporary job. Elaine Nardo is a single mother working as a receptionist at an art gallery. Tony Banta is a boxer with a losing record. Bobby Wheeler is a struggling actor. All take pity on "Reverend Jim" Ignatowski, an aging hippie minister, who is burnt out from drugs, so they help him become a cabbie. The characters also included Latka Gravas, their innocent, wide-eyed mechanic from an unnamed foreign country, and Louie De Palma, the despotic dispatcher. There are 75 episodes available on Hulu (114 in the complete series) so one more season to go. The new library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog.

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

After a second cancellation in 1958, CBS picked up the series yet again where it aired until May 1960. The popular radio show came to life in this hit sitcom about a wise family man, Jim Anderson, played by Robert Young, his common-sense wife Margaret and their children Betty, Bud and Kathy. Whenever the kids need advice on anything at all, they can always turn to their father, because father knows best. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas catalog. The rest of Season 5 plus all of Season 6 to come.

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

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

      5/27/17 - Today I added the last fifteen available episodes to Season 2 of the Petticoat Junction library. Petticoat Junction was an American situation comedy that originally aired on CBS. The series takes place at the Shady Rest Hotel, which is run by Kate Bradley, her Uncle Joe Carson, and her three daughters Billie Jo, Bobbie Jo, and Betty Jo Bradley. The series is one of three interrelated shows about rural characters created by Paul Henning. Petticoat Junction was created upon the success of Henning's previous rural/urban-themed sitcom The Beverly Hillbillies (1962–1971). The success of Petticoat Junction led to a spin-off, Green Acres (1965–1971). This library is located in the Paul Henning, Family Comedies and Dramas, Funny Guys and the Whacky Dames Catalogs. The added episodes are:
      Communication
      Girl Volunteer

      Why Girls Leave Home
      Brontosaurus Caper
      Show Business

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

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

      I also added eighteen episodes too the Hawaii Five-0 Library. Hawaii Five-O was an American police procedural drama series produced by CBS Productions and Leonard Freeman. Set in Hawaii, the show originally aired for 12 seasons from 1968 to 1980, and continues in reruns. At the airing of its very last episode, it was the longest running cop show in television history at that time. Jack Lord portrayed Detective Captain Steve McGarrett, the head of a special state police task force which was based on an actual unit that existed under martial law in the 1940s. The theme music composed by Morton Stevens became especially popular. Many episodes would end with McGarrett instructing his subordinate to "Book 'em, Danno!", sometimes specifying a charge such as "murder one". I have found a substantial cache of episodes from 10 of the 12 Seasons of the series on Daily Motion, so many more to come The library is available in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog. The added episodes are all of those found on the first library page (from seasons 1 and 2).

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

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

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

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

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

      5/20/17 - Today I created a new Thriller library with twenty episodes from Season 1 to start. Thriller (1960-1962) (also known as Boris Karloff's Thriller) was an American anthology television series that aired on NBC. The show featured host Boris Karloff introducing a mix of macabre horror tales and suspense thrillers. In addition to serving as the host of the series, Karloff also starred in five episodes: "The Prediction," "The Premature Burial," "The Last of the Sommervilles," "Dialogues With Death," and "The Incredible Doctor Markesan. The new library is available in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror and the Boris Karloff Catalogs.

      5/19/17 - Today I completed my M*A*S*H library with all twenty-four episodes of Season 2. M*A*S*H is an American media franchise consisting of a series of novels, a film, several television series, plays, and other properties, owned by 20th Century Fox and based on the semi-autobiographic fiction of Richard Hooker. The franchise depicts a group of fictional characters who served at the fictional "4077th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital (M*A*S*H)" during the Korean War, loosely based on the historic 8055th MASH unit. Hawkeye Pierce is featured as the main character, played by Donald Sutherland in the film and by Alan Alda on television. Later spin-offs involve characters who appeared in the series, but were set after the end of the war. Almost all versions of the series fit into the genre of black comedy or dramedy; the lead characters were doctors or nurses, and the practice of medicine was at the center of events. However, to relieve the pressures of duty in a field hospital close to the front and the attendant horrors of war, the staff engage in humorous hijinks, frivolity and petty rivalries off duty. M*A*S*H, a spin-off of the film, ran from 1972 to 1983, more than three times as long as the war it chronicled. It starred Alan Alda as Hawkeye Pierce and Wayne Rogers as Trapper John McIntyre. After the third season, Rogers left the show and was replaced by Mike Farrell as B. J. Hunnicutt. Another change was the addition of Harry Morgan as Colonel Sherman T. Potter, a veteran character actor and former Universal contract player, who replaced McLean Stevenson the same year. This series is the most popular and well-known version of the franchise and was ranked #25 in TV Guide's "TV Guide's 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time." Its final episode in 1983 was the most-watched in television history. This library is located in the Funny Guys and the Action and Adventure Catalogs.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

      5/11/17 - Today I added the last sixteen episodes to Season 2 of the Mama's Family library. Mama's Family (1983–1990) was an American television sitcom starring Vicki Lawrence as Thelma Harper (Mama). The series was a spin-off of a recurring series of comedy sketches called "The Family" featured on The Carol Burnett Show (1974–78). That led to the made-for-TV movie, Eunice, and finally the television series. Mama's Family originally aired on NBC. After several timeslot changes and subsequent drop in ratings the network cancelled the series in 1984. Two years after its cancellation, original series producer Joe Hamilton Productions decided to follow a lead that several other programs at the time had set and revive Mama's Family for first-run syndication on local stations across the United States. The revived series premiered on September 27, 1986. The syndicated version garnered substantially higher ratings than did its network version, eventually becoming the highest rated sitcom in first-run syndication. Its four season-run ended on February 24, 1990. The new library is located in the Family Comedies and Drama Catalog. These videos are auto-play, they start playing as soon as you arrive at the page. I have the first four seasons (85 episodes) bookmarked, so many more to come! The added episodes are all of the ones on the 2nd library page.

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

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

      Face of Yesterday
      Closer Than a Brother
      Dark Day at North Fork
      Stopover
      Death Trap
      The Queue

      5/7/17 - Today I restored my Hawaii Five-0 Library with the thirty-eight available episodes of Seasons 4 and 5. Hawaii Five-O was an American police procedural drama series produced by CBS Productions and Leonard Freeman. Set in Hawaii, the show originally aired for 12 seasons from 1968 to 1980, and continues in reruns. At the airing of its very last episode, it was the longest running cop show in television history at that time. Jack Lord portrayed Detective Captain Steve McGarrett, the head of a special state police task force which was based on an actual unit that existed under martial law in the 1940s. The theme music composed by Morton Stevens became especially popular. Many episodes would end with McGarrett instructing his subordinate to "Book 'em, Danno!", sometimes specifying a charge such as "murder one". I have found a substantial cache of episodes from 10 of the 12 Seasons of the series on Daily Motion - I chose to post these 35 because most of the player pages were already built for the previous version of the library - I just needed to change the embed codes. The next time I post episodes they will be the available episodes of Seasons' 1 and 2 - to fill things in before I continue on to the remaining seasons. The library is available in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

      The Palace
      Lib and Let Lib
      Elly, the Secretary
      Robert Audubon Getty Crockett

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

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

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

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

      4/23/17 - Today I added twenty-nine episodes to the Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet library. The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet was an American sitcom, airing on ABC from October 3, 1952, through March 26, 1966, starring the real-life Nelson family. After a long run on radio, the show was brought to television, where it continued its success, initially running simultaneously on radio and television. The series stars Ozzie Nelson and his wife, singer Harriet Nelson (née Snyder, professionally), and their young sons, David and Eric "Ricky" Nelson. Don DeFore had a recurring role as the Nelsons' friendly neighbor "Thorny". On a side note, this was the very first episodic TV series library I created. Up until then I had been only loading Feature Films. With (now) 350 episodes, it is also one of the largest libraries on the site. A regular contributor too the Internet Archive has been putting these episodes up frequently over the past few months - so I expect there will be more too come. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added episodes, which are spread out throughout several Seasons, are:
      Fish Story
      Curiosity
      The Camera
      The Swimming Pool

      4/22/17 - Today I continued my restoration of the Have Gun Will Travel library by adding eighteen episodes to Seasons 1, 2 and 3. This is the third or fourth time I have rstored this library, so hope for the best. Have Gun – Will Travel (1957-1963) was an American Western television series that aired on CBS. It was rated number three or number four in the Nielsen ratings every year of its first four seasons. The series follows the adventures of a man calling himself "Paladin" (played by Richard Boone), taking his name from that of the foremost knight warriors in Charlemagne's court. He is a gentleman gunfighter who travels around the Old West working as a mercenary gunfighter for people who hire him to solve their problems for them.

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

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

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

      4/18/17 - Today I added twenty-four episodes to the restored Rawhide library. Rawhide was an American Western TV series starring Eric Fleming and Clint Eastwood that aired for eight seasons on the CBS network on Friday nights, from January 9, 1959 to September 3, 1965, before moving to Tuesday nights from September 14, 1965 until January 4, 1966, with a total of 217 black-and-white episodes. The series was produced and sometimes directed by Charles Marquis Warren, who also produced early episodes of Gunsmoke. This was Eastwood's stepping stone to fame and fortune as he became one of the few TV stars to successfully make the move into starring roles in movies. I also have ten of the Season 8 episodes - but I need to build pages for them, since they weren't in the original library when it disappeared. This library is located in the Western Shows Catalog. The added episodes are:
      Tumbleweed
      Curious Street
      The Dog Days
      The Calico Gun
      Misplaced Indians
      Fear in the Streets
      The Judas Trap

      The Last Chance
      Garden of Eden
      Dragoon Crossing
      Night Visitor
      Road to Yesterday
      Superstition Prairie
      Poco Tiempo
      The Captive
      Married Widow

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

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

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

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

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

      4/12/17 - Today I added all twenty-two episodes to Season 4 of the Frasier library. Frasier (1993-2004) was an American sitcom that was broadcast on NBC for eleven seasons. The series was created as a spin-off of Cheers, continuing the story of psychiatrist Frasier Crane as he returned to his hometown of Seattle and started building a new life. Frasier stars Kelsey Grammer, David Hyde Pierce, John Mahoney, Jane Leeves, Peri Gilpin, and Moose/Enzo. This library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog. I have all but 3 of the episodes of this 11 Season series bookmarked, so many. many more to come!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

      A Princess
      The Velvet Trap
      The Secret Place
      Blueprint for Paradise

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

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

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

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

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

      Oil Land
      Lady Mortician
      Movie Star
      The Hillbilly

      Top Secret
      Very South Pacific
      Beauty Queen
      Cinderella's Revenge

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

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

      Dog Days At Shady Rest
      Cave Woman

      3/28/17 - Today I added all twenty-four episodes of Season 4 to The Waltons library. I have most of the first 8 Seasons bookmarked so many more to come. The Waltons (1971–1981) is about the family of John Walton Jr. (known as John-Boy): his six siblings, his parents John and Olivia Walton, and the elder John's parents Zebulon "Zeb" and Esther Walton. John-Boy is the oldest of the children, who becomes a journalist and novelist. Created by Earl Hamner, Jr., based on his book Spencer's Mountain, and a 1963 film of the same name, the show is centered on a family in a rural Virginia community during the Great Depression and World War II. Each episode is narrated at the opening and closing by a middle-aged John-Boy (voiced by author Earl Hamner on whom John-Boy is based).

The family income is augmented by some small-scale farming, and John occasionally hunts to put meat on the table. Stars: Richard Thomas, Ralph Waite, Michael Learned, Ellen Corby and Will Geer. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

      3/27/17 - Today I created a new Mama's Family library, with nineteen episodes to start. Mama's Family (1983–1990) was an American television sitcom starring Vicki Lawrence as Thelma Harper (Mama). The series was a spin-off of a recurring series of comedy sketches called "The Family" featured on The Carol Burnett Show (1974–78). That led to the made-for-TV movie, Eunice, and finally the television series. Mama's Family originally aired on NBC. After several timeslot changes and subsequent drop in ratings the network cancelled the series in 1984. Two years after its cancellation, original series producer Joe Hamilton Productions decided to follow a lead that several other programs at the time had set and revive Mama's Family for first-run syndication on local stations across the United States. The revived series premiered on September 27, 1986. The syndicated version garnered substantially higher ratings than did its network version, eventually becoming the highest rated sitcom in first-run syndication. Its four season-run ended on February 24, 1990. The new library is located in the Family Comedies and Drama Catalog. These videos are auto-play, they start playing as soon as you arrive at the page. I have the first four seasons (85 episodes) bookmarked, so many more to come!

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.

Flipper, a bottlenose dolphin, is the companion animal of Porter Ricks, Chief Warden at fictional Coral Key Park and Marine Preserve in southern Florida, and his two young sons, Sandy and Bud. The show has been dubbed an "aquatic Lassie", and a considerable amount of children's merchandise inspired by the show was produced during its first run. The Miami Seaquarium set where Flipper was filmed also served as the set of another Ivan Tors production, Gentle Ben; the house where the Ricks family lived was the same house used for the Wedloe family on Gentle Ben. The new library is located in the Kid Shows and the Action and Adventure Catalogs.

      3/24/17 - Today I added all thirty-nine episodes of Season 2 to the Leave It to Beaver library.

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

I recently found a large cache of these shows, ao many more to come!

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.

      3/19/17 - Today I added ten episodes to Season 2 of the The Beverly Hillibillies Library.

The series starred Buddy Ebsen, Irene Ryan, Donna Douglas, and Max Baer, Jr. as a poor backwoods family who moved to Beverly Hills, California, after striking oil on their land. The 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.

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

      3/17/17 - Today I added eighteen episodes to the Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet library. The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet was an American sitcom, airing on ABC from October 3, 1952, through March 26, 1966, starring the real-life Nelson family. After a long run on radio, the show was brought to television, where it continued its success, initially running simultaneously on radio and television. The series stars Ozzie Nelson and his wife, singer Harriet Nelson (née Snyder, professionally), and their young sons, David and Eric "Ricky" Nelson. Don DeFore had a recurring role as the Nelsons' friendly neighbor "Thorny". On a side note, this was the very first episodic TV series library I created. Up until then I had been only loading Feature Films. With (now) 321 episodes, it is also one of the largest libraries on the site. A regular contributor too the Internet Archive has been putting these episodes up frequently over the past few months - so I expect there will be more too come. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added episodes, which are spread out throughout several Seasons, are:

      Wally's TV Set

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

      The problem libraries include:

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

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

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

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

      3/7/17 - Today I added the last thirteen episodes to Season 3 of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. library. The Man from U.N.C.L.E. was an American television series that was broadcast on NBC from September 22, 1964, to January 15, 1968. It followed secret agents, played by Robert Vaughn and David McCallum, who worked for a secret international counter espionage and law enforcement agency called U.N.C.L.E. Originally, co-creator Sam Rolfe wanted to leave the meaning of U.N.C.L.E. ambiguous so it could refer to either "Uncle Sam" or the United Nations. Concerns by the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer legal department about using "U.N." for commercial purposes resulted in the producers' clarification that U.N.C.L.E. was an acronym for the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement. Each episode had an "acknowledgement" to the U.N.C.L.E. in the end titles. This library is located in the Action and Adventure and Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

      2/27/17 - Today I added all twenty-four episodes of Season 3 to the Frasier library. Frasier (1993-2004) was an American sitcom that was broadcast on NBC for eleven seasons. The series was created as a spin-off of Cheers, continuing the story of psychiatrist Frasier Crane as he returned to his hometown of Seattle and started building a new life. Frasier stars Kelsey Grammer, David Hyde Pierce, John Mahoney, Jane Leeves, Peri Gilpin, and Moose/Enzo. This library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog. I have all but 3 of the episodes of this 11 Season series bookmarked, so many. many more to come!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

      2/19/17 - Today I added thirteen episodes to the Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet library. The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet was an American sitcom, airing on ABC from October 3, 1952, through March 26, 1966, starring the real-life Nelson family. After a long run on radio, the show was brought to television, where it continued its success, initially running simultaneously on radio and television. The series stars Ozzie Nelson and his wife, singer Harriet Nelson (née Snyder, professionally), and their young sons, David and Eric "Ricky" Nelson. Don DeFore had a recurring role as the Nelsons' friendly neighbor "Thorny". On a side note, this was the very first episodic TV series library I created. Up until then I had been only loading Feature Films. With (now) 303 episodes, it is also one of the largest libraries on the site. A regular contributor too the Internet Archive has been putting these episodes up frequently over the past few months - so I expect there will be more too come. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added episodes, which are spread out throughout several Seasons, are:

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

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

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

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

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

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

      2/13/17 - Today I added all thirty-two episodes of Season 5 of the The Dick Van Dyke Show library. This completes the library with all the episodes intact. The Dick Van Dyke Show was an American television sitcom that initially aired on CBS from October 3, 1961 to June 1, 1966, with a total of 158 half-hour episodes spanning over five seasons. The show was created by Carl Reiner and starred Dick Van Dyke, Rose Marie, Morey Amsterdam, Larry Mathews, and Mary Tyler Moore. It centered on the work and home life of television comedy writer Rob Petrie (Van Dyke). The show was produced by Reiner with Bill Persky and Sam Denoff. The series won 15 Emmy Awards. In 2002, it was ranked at 13 on TV Guide's 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time and in 2013, it was ranked at 20 on their list of the 60 Best Series'. This library is available in the Family Comedies & Drama and 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. DeMille's The Ten Commandments starring Charlton Heston. Connors appeared in many films, some of the more notable were: Sudden Fear (1952), Island in the Sky (1953), Swamp Women (Swamp Diamonds), Five Guns West (1955), The Day the World Ended (1955), Shake, Rattle and Rock (1956), and Flesh and the Spur (1957). Connors died in Tarzana, California, a week after being diagnosed with leukemia, at the age of 91. The Mannix Library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog. The added episodes are:

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

      1/26/17 - Upon hearing of the passing of Mary Tyler Moore this morning I decided to complete my Mary Tyler Moore Show library by adding all of the available episodes of Seasons 5, 6. and 7 (forty-one total). No Season 4 episodes have been found so far. Mary Tyler Moore (December 29, 1936 – January 25, 2017) was an American actress, primarily known for her roles in television sitcoms, including The Mary Tyler Moore Show (1970–77), in which she starred as Mary Richards, a thirty-something single woman who worked as a local news producer in Minneapolis, and, earlier, The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961–66), in which she played Laura Petrie, a former dancer turned Westchester homemaker, wife and mother. Her notable film work includes 1967's Thoroughly Modern Millie and 1980's Ordinary People, in which she played a role that was very different from the television characters she had portrayed, and for which she was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress. I will also add episodes to the Dick Van Dyke Show library in the near future. The Mary Tyler Moore Show library is located in the Mary Tyler Moore Catalog, which is available in the Whacky Dames Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

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

      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

      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)

      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)

      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)

      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

      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
      Revenge
      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

      Billie Jo's First Job

      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:

      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:

      High Cost of Dying
      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:

      The Iron Silence
      The Hold-Out
      Go Fight City Hall
      Ten Days in the Sun

      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
      King Cosmo the First
      Topper's Double Life
      Topper Fights a Duel
      Topper Egyptian Deal

      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.

      Previous Updates

      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
