I have been asked by several regular viewers of the channel to put this up to keep interested parties informed on what is going on at Uncle Earl's Classic TV Channel. At present there are more than 10,000 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 First Page


      11/29/16 - Today I added fifteen episodes too my I Led 3 Lives library, which more then doubles the size of the library from 12 to 27 episodes. I Led 3 Lives (1952-1954) aired during the height of the "Red Scare" years and was loosely based on the life of Herbert Philbrick, a Boston advertising executive who infiltrated the U.S. Communist Party on behalf of the FBI in the 1940s and wrote a bestselling book on the topic, I Led 3 Lives: Citizen, 'Communist', Counterspy (1952). The part of Philbrick was played by Richard Carlson. The series lasted 117 episodes. Philbrick narrated each episode and served as a technical consultant — and all scripts were approved by J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI. Nonetheless, the episodes often had very little to do with the actual events of Philbrick's life, with plotlines taking Philbrick on journeys to Europe and South America. They gradually became more and more outlandish, featuring such supposed "Communist plots" as an attempt to convert vacuum cleaners into bomb launchers. The "three lives" in the title are Philbrick's outward life as a white-collar worker, his secret life as a Communist agent and his even more secret life as an FBI operative helping foil Communist plots. I remember seeing a few episodes of this show when I was about 5 years old - and there were two take-aways, the paranoid view of the Communist Party and the cynicism that seemed to infect the portrayals of the actors who played party operatives. They always seemed to be "laughing up their sleeves" at what they perceived as the moronic patriotism and gullibility of their American couterparts. This show aired in syndication from 1952 until 1957, for the most part after the US Senate had censured Senator Joseph McCarthy in 1954 for his anti-Communist activities and is credited with helping prolong the "Red Scare" mentality of a large portion of the Amercan public. It is said to have been Lee Harvey Oswald's favorite show. The other thing I want to mention is that information concerning air dates are almost non-existant for this series, as well as plot summaries, so the majority of the episodes have neither of them listed. Also the information regarding the seasons and episode are disputed among the various databases I generally consult, so I have gone with The Internet Movie Database (iMDB) listing bcause they usually prove to be the most accurate. Because of the espionage facet of this series, it is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog. I have 16 more of these episodes bookmarked, which I will post in the near future. The added episodes are:

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

      11/28/16 - Late last night, in honer of the passing of Ron Glass, I found and posted fifteen more episodes too my Barney Miller library. Barney Miller was an American sitcom set in a New York City Police Department police station in Greenwich Village. The series originally was broadcast from January 23, 1975, to May 20, 1982, on ABC. Barney Miller takes place almost entirely within the confines of the detectives' squad room and Captain Barney Miller's adjoining office of New York City's fictional 12th Precinct, located in Greenwich Village. A typical episode would feature the detectives of the 12th bringing in several complainants and/or suspects to the squad room. Usually, two or three separate subplots are in a given episode, with different officers dealing with different crimes. Once a year, an episode would feature one or more of the detectives outside of the walls of the precinct, either on a stakeout or at one of their homes. The added episodes are all of the ones in the 3rd and 4th column of the library page. This library is located in the Funny Guys Catalogs, and, since it occasionally deals with dramatic situations, it is also found in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

      11/27/16 - Today I added nine episodes to the Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet library. The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet was an American sitcom, airing on ABC from October 3, 1952, through March 26, 1966, starring the real-life Nelson family. After a long run on radio, the show was brought to television, where it continued its success, initially running simultaneously on radio and television. The series stars Ozzie Nelson and his wife, singer Harriet Nelson (née Snyder, professionally), and their young sons, David and Eric "Ricky" Nelson. Don DeFore had a recurring role as the Nelsons' friendly neighbor "Thorny". On a side note, this was the very first episodic TV series library I created. Up until then I had been only loading Feature Films. With (now) 251 episodes, it is also one of the largest libraries on the site. A regular contributor too the Internet Archive has been putting these episodes up frequently over the past few months - so I expect there will be more too come. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added episodes are scattered throughout seasons 10 through 14 of the series and include:

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

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

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

      11/23/16 - Today I added the first twenty available episodes to Season 6 of the Bonanza Library. Bonanza was an NBC television western series that ran from 1959 to 1973. Lasting 14 seasons and 431 episodes, Bonanza is NBC's longest-running western, and ranks overall as the second-longest-running western series on U.S. network television (behind CBS' Gunsmoke), and within the top 10 longest-running, live-action American series. The show continues to air in syndication. The show is set around the 1860s and it centers on the wealthy Cartwright family, who live in the area of Virginia City, Nevada, bordering Lake Tahoe. The series stars Lorne Greene, Dan Blocker, Michael Landon, Pernell Roberts (who left after six seasons), and later David Canary and Mitch Vogel. I still have several seasons bookmarked, including Seasons 7, 8, 10, 11 and 13 - so lots more to come. This library is located in the Western Shows and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs.

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

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

      11/21/2016 - Today I added the first fifteen available episodes to Season 5 of The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp library. I have watched about a dozen or so of these shows and highly recommend it. The Earp character, as portayed by Hugh O'Brian, is really different from a lot of western heroes - he is strong and confident, but also humble. In all of the shows I've watched so far he manages to win each fight without killing anyone. The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp (1955-1961) was the first western television series written for adults, premiering four days before Gunsmoke on September 6, 1955. It was loosely based on the life of frontier marshal Wyatt Earp. The half-hour black-and-white program aired for 229 episodes on ABC from 1955 to 1961. O'Brian was chosen for the role in part because of his physical resemblance to early photographs of Wyatt Earp. A little more than one season to go!. So many more to come. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Western Shows Catalog.

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

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

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

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

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

      11/15 16 - Today I restored my Leave It to Beaver library with ten episodes so far. Leave It to Beaver was an American television situation comedy about an inquisitive and often naïve boy, Theodore "The Beaver" Cleaver (portrayed by Jerry Mathers), and his adventures at home, in school, and around his suburban neighborhood. The show also starred Barbara Billingsley and Hugh Beaumont as Beaver's parents, June and Ward Cleaver, and Tony Dow as Beaver's brother Wally. The show has attained an iconic status in the United States, with the Cleavers exemplifying the idealized suburban family of the mid-20th century. My original library only had 3 episodes from YouTube, and they vanished almost as soon as I put them up. I hadn't thought about the series in a long time and then someone asked me about it recently, so I decided to look around and found these episodes from the last two seasons (Seasons 5 and 6). I hope to find more but they are hard to come by. I will keep my eyes peeled. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

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

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

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

      Frightened Tailor
      True Love
      Road in the Air
      Carlotta
      Tuck in Time

      The Profiteer
      Too Many Robins
      Women's War
      Little Mother
      Tuck's Love Day
      Bushel of Apples

      11/10/16 - Today I added Season 2 (thiry episodes) to the Lost in Space library. Lost in Space was an American science fiction television series, following the adventures of a family of pioneering space colonists whose ship goes off course. It was created and produced by Irwin Allen, filmed by 20th Century Fox Television, and broadcast on CBS. The show ran for three seasons, with 83 episodes airing between 1965 to 1968. The first television season was filmed in black and white, with the second and third seasons filmed in color. The entire series is available on Hulu, so one more season to come. This library is found in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog.

      11/8/16 - Today, in celebration of our current political situation, I decided to post episodes of a show about another character with an 8-year-old mentality, so I added ten episodes to the Dennis the Menace library. Dennis the Menace was an American sitcom based on the Hank Ketcham comic strip of the same name and preceded The Ed Sullivan Show on Sunday evenings on CBS from October 1959 to July 1963. The series stars Jay North as Dennis Mitchell; Herbert Anderson as his father, Henry; Gloria Henry as his mother, Alice; Joseph Kearns as George Wilson, Gale Gordon as George's brother, John Wilson, Sylvia Field as George's wife, Martha Wilson, and Sara Seegar as John's wife, Eloise Wilson. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added episodes are the last one in Season 2, and all of the Season 3 episodes.

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

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

      11/6/16 - Today I added five episodes to the Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet library. The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet was an American sitcom, airing on ABC from October 3, 1952, through March 26, 1966, starring the real-life Nelson family. After a long run on radio, the show was brought to television, where it continued its success, initially running simultaneously on radio and television. The series stars Ozzie Nelson and his wife, singer Harriet Nelson (née Snyder, professionally), and their young sons, David and Eric "Ricky" Nelson. Don DeFore had a recurring role as the Nelsons' friendly neighbor "Thorny". On a side note, this was the very first episodic TV series library I created. Up until then I had been only loading Feature Films. With (now) 242 episodes, it is also one of the largest libraries on the site. A regular contributor too the Internet Archive has been putting these episodes up frequently over the past few months - so I expect there will be more too come. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added episodes are scattered throughout the first 11 seasons of the series:
      The Safe Driver
      Buried Treasure
      The Fraternity Pin
      Fraternity Cook
      June Music Festival

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

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

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

      11/4/16 - Today I created a new Passport to Danger library with eleven episodes to start. Passport to Danger (1954-1955) chronicled the adventures of a diplomatic courier, starring Cesar Romero as Steve McQuinn. Each episode started with a voice-over saying "One of the vital functions of the United States Government is to establish and maintain diplomatic relations with other countries. In every friendly and civilized nation in the world there is an American Embassy or Legation. Whether it is Paris or Cairo, Shanghai or any other remote outpost, the most reliable and confidential means of communication is the Courier service. Armed only with his Passport, the Courier, like a global postman delivers the Top Secret dispatches of our Government." A "Tip of the Hat" to regular viewer, Kelly Brown, for telling me about this series, which I had never heard of. The new library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama and the Action and Adventure Catalogs. I also added five episodes to the Public Defender library. The Public Defender (1954-1955) was a half-hour 69-episode television dramatic series starring Reed Hadley (1911-1974) as stoic but driven public defender Bart Matthews, whose clients cannot otherwise afford expensive legal representation. The concept of the public defender was little known in the United States except in capital cases. A 1932 United States Supreme Court decision Powell v. Alabama clarified the need for public defenders for suspects accused of crimes which if convicted might lead to execution. The use of public defenders was broadened in 1962 in another high court case, Gideon v. Wainwright to include public defenders for all suspects charged with any level of felony, a broadening of the Powell ruling. The Public Defender purportedly based each episode on true cases, and each segment closes with a tribute to a public defender. The added episodes are:

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

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

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

      11/1/16 - Today I added the last nineteen episodes to Season 5 of the Bonanza Library. Bonanza was an NBC television western series that ran from 1959 to 1973. Lasting 14 seasons and 431 episodes, Bonanza is NBC's longest-running western, and ranks overall as the second-longest-running western series on U.S. network television (behind CBS' Gunsmoke), and within the top 10 longest-running, live-action American series. The show continues to air in syndication. The show is set around the 1860s and it centers on the wealthy Cartwright family, who live in the area of Virginia City, Nevada, bordering Lake Tahoe. The series stars Lorne Greene, Dan Blocker, Michael Landon, Pernell Roberts (who left after six seasons), and later David Canary and Mitch Vogel. I still have several seasons bookmarked, including Seasons 6, 7, 8, 10, 11 and 13 - so lots more to come. This library is located in the Western Shows and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs.

      10/31/16 - Today I added twenty episodes to the My Favorite Martian Library which brings us to the end of Season 2. One Season left to go. These are from Hulu (sorry about the commercials) and the entire series, minus three episodes, are there so many more to come! My Favorite Martian (1963–1966) was an American television sitcom that aired on CBS for 107 episodes. The show starred Ray Walston as the Martian, and Bill Bixby as Tim O'Hara. A human-looking extraterrestrial in a one-man spaceship crash-lands near Los Angeles. The ship's pilot is, in fact, an anthropologist from Mars and is now stranded on Earth. The new library is located in the Funny Guys and the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalogs. The added episodes are all of the ones on the 3rd library page.

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

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

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

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

      10/26/16 - Today I restored twenty-one episodes to The Twilight Zone library. The Twilight Zone (1959–1964) was an American television anthology series created by Rod Serling. It is a series of unrelated stories containing drama, psychological thriller, fantasy, science fiction, suspense, and/or horror, often concluding with a macabre or unexpected twist. A popular and critical success, it introduced many Americans to common science fiction and fantasy tropes. At one time I had almost all of the series episodes from Hulu, but they recently moved their collection into the "Subscribers Only" category, meaning that the only way you could view them on my site would be if you are a Hulu subscriber and you are logged into Hulu. I subsequently took all of the episodes down except for the pilot, which was from another source. The 21 current episodes are all ones that were in the original library. This library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog.

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

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

      10/22/16 - Last Night I added twelve more episodes to Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet library. The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet was an American sitcom, airing on ABC from October 3, 1952, through March 26, 1966, starring the real-life Nelson family. After a long run on radio, the show was brought to television, where it continued its success, initially running simultaneously on radio and television. The series stars Ozzie Nelson and his wife, singer Harriet Nelson (née Snyder, professionally), and their young sons, David and Eric "Ricky" Nelson. Don DeFore had a recurring role as the Nelsons' friendly neighbor "Thorny". On a side note, this was the very first episodic TV series library I created. Up until then I had been only loading Feature Films. With (now) 237 episodes, it is also one of the largest libraries on the site. A regular contributor too the Internet Archive has been putting these episodes up frequently over the past few months - so I expect there will be more too come. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added episodes are scattered throughout the first 10 seasons of the series:

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

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

      10/20/16 - I didn't have a lot of time available today, so I added six episodes to the Adventures in Paradise library. Adventures in Paradise (1959–1962) was an American television series created by James Michener which ran on ABC. starring Gardner McKay as Adam Troy, the captain of the schooner Tiki III, which sailed the South Pacific looking for passengers and adventure. USA Network aired reruns of this series between 1984 and 1988. The plots deal with the romantic and detective adventures of Korean War veteran Troy. The supporting cast, varying from season to season, features George Tobias, Guy Stockwell, and Linda Lawson. This library is located in the Action and Adventure Catalog. The added episodes are:

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

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

      10/18/2016 - Today I added the twenty-two episodes of Season 2 to the Stargate SG-1 library. I have one more Season to post. Stargate SG-1 was an adventure and military science fiction television series produced by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. The show, created by Brad Wright and Jonathan Glassner, is based on the 1994 science fiction film Stargate by Dean Devlin and Roland Emmerich. SG-1 is an elite United States Air Force special operations team, one of about 20 teams from Earth who explore the galaxy and defend against alien threats. I highly recommend this series, in fact, I am currently re-watching it on Hulu, which has all of the episodes, but does not make them available for emdedded streaming. Even though I don't have all of the episodes in my library, the individual shows hold up very well on their own, and the characters and plots are very imaginitive and entertaining. This library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog.

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

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

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

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

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

      10/15/16 - Today I added twenty episodes to the Get Smart Library which completes Season 2. Get Smart (1965–1970) was an American comedy television series that satirized the secret agent genre. The show starred Don Adams (as Maxwell Smart, Agent 86), Barbara Feldon (as Agent 99). Created by Mel Brooks with Buck Henry, Brooks said: "It's an insane combination of James Bond and Mel Brooks comedy." During the show's run, it generated a number of popular catchphrases, including "Would you believe...", "Missed it by that much!", "Sorry about that, Chief", "The Old (such-and-such) Trick", "And... loving it", and "I asked you not to tell me that". The new library is located in the Funny Guys Catalogs, and because it deals with espionage (albeit in a comical fashion), it is also found in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog. On a personal note, this show was on right at the end of my high school years and was one of the few that I continued to watch regularly into my college days. It is one of the funniest shows I remember watching and I highly recommend it. I have most of the Season 3 episodes from Daily Motion, so more to come.

      10/14/16 - Today I added the twenty-eight available episodes to Season 4 of The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp library. I have watched about a half-dozen of these shows and highly recommend it. The Earp character, as portayed by Hugh O'Brian, is really different from a lot of western heroes - he is strong and confident, but also humble. In all of the shows I've watched so far he manages to win each fight without killing anyone. The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp (1955-1961) was the first western television series written for adults, premiering four days before Gunsmoke on September 6, 1955. It was loosely based on the life of frontier marshal Wyatt Earp. The half-hour black-and-white program aired for 229 episodes on ABC from 1955 to 1961. O'Brian was chosen for the role in part because of his physical resemblance to early photographs of Wyatt Earp. I have most of the episodes for Season 4 - 6 bookmarked. So many more to come. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Western Shows Catalog.

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

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

      10/10/16 - Last night I was surprised and pleased to discover the first twenty-three episodes of Maverick on Daily Motion. This is the first time I have ever found any episodes of the series so this morning I created a library to hold them. Maverick (1957-1962) was an American Western television series with comedic overtones which ran on ABC and starred James Garner as Bret Maverick, an adroitly articulate cardsharp. Eight episodes into the first season, he was joined by Jack Kelly as his brother Bart Maverick, and from that point on, Garner and Kelly alternated leads from week to week, sometimes teaming up for the occasional two-brother episode. The Mavericks were poker players from Texas who traveled all over the American Old West and on Mississippi riverboats, constantly getting into and out of life-threatening trouble of one sort or another, usually involving money, women, or both. They would typically find themselves weighing a financial windfall against a moral dilemma. More often than not, their consciences trumped their wallets since both Mavericks were intrinsically ethical. When Garner left the series after the third season due to a legal dispute, Roger Moore was added to the cast as their cousin Beau Maverick. Robert Colbert appeared later in the fourth season as a third Maverick brother, Brent Maverick. No more than two of the series leads ever appeared together in the same episode, and usually only one. The new library is located in the Western TV Shows catalog. I will be very surprised if these videos don't vanish in short order, so watch 'em while we got 'em!

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

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

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

      10/7/16 - Today I added the first thirteen available episodes to Season 5 of the Bonanza Library. Bonanza was an NBC television western series that ran from 1959 to 1973. Lasting 14 seasons and 431 episodes, Bonanza is NBC's longest-running western, and ranks overall as the second-longest-running western series on U.S. network television (behind CBS' Gunsmoke), and within the top 10 longest-running, live-action American series. The show continues to air in syndication. The show is set around the 1860s and it centers on the wealthy Cartwright family, who live in the area of Virginia City, Nevada, bordering Lake Tahoe. The series stars Lorne Greene, Dan Blocker, Michael Landon, Pernell Roberts (who left after six seasons), and later David Canary and Mitch Vogel. I still have several seasons bookmarked, including Seasons 6, 7, 8, 10, 11 and 13 - so lots more to come. This library is located in the Western Shows and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs.

      10/5/16 - Today I added fifteen episodes to The Doris Day Show library, bringing us to the end of Season 3. Doris Day (born Doris Mary Ann Kappelhoff; April 3, 1922 or 1924) is an American actress, singer, and animal rights activist. Day began her career as a big band singer in 1939. Her popularity began to rise after her first hit recording "Sentimental Journey", in 1945. After leaving Les Brown & His Band of Renown to embark on a solo career, Day started her long-lasting partnership with Columbia Records, which remained her only recording label. Over the course of her career, Day appeared in 39 films. She was ranked the biggest box-office star, the only woman appearing on that list in the era, for four years (1960, 1962, 1963 and 1964), ranking in the top 10 for ten years (1951–1952 and 1959–1966). All of this is located in the Doris Day Catalog, which is located in the Feature Films Catalog and in the Catalog of Stars. The Doris Day Show can also be found in the Whacky Dames an the Family Comedies & Drama Catalogs. The added episodes are all of the ones on the 4th library page.

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

      10/3/16 - Today I added eight more episodes too the Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet library. The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet was an American sitcom, airing on ABC from October 3, 1952, through March 26, 1966, starring the real-life Nelson family. After a long run on radio, the show was brought to television, where it continued its success, initially running simultaneously on radio and television. The series stars Ozzie Nelson and his wife, singer Harriet Nelson (née Snyder, professionally), and their young sons, David and Eric "Ricky" Nelson. Don DeFore had a recurring role as the Nelsons' friendly neighbor "Thorny". On a side note, this was the very first episodic TV series library I created. Up until then I had been only loading Feature Films. With (now) 225 episodes, it is also one of the largest libraries on the site. A few years ago I went through it and rearranged it into proper order, and also added season, episode and plot summary information. A regular contributor too the Internet Archive has been putting these episodes up frequently over the past few months - so I expect there will be more too come. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added episodes are:

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

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

      10/1/16 - Today I restored my 3rd Rock from the Sun Library from DailyMotion with one-hundred and twenty-seven of the 139 episodes that make up the full series. 3rd Rock from the Sun (sometimes referred to as simply 3rd Rock) was an American sitcom that aired from 1996 to 2001 on NBC. The premise of the show revolves around an extraterrestrial research expedition attempting to live as a normal human family in the fictional city of Rutherford, Ohio, said to be 52 miles outside of Cleveland, where they live in an attic apartment. Humor was principally derived from the aliens' attempts to study human society and, because of their living as humans themselves while on Earth, to understand the human condition. I was able to restore this library fairly quickly because the previous version contained all of the series episodes, so all of those pages were already built. This is the 2nd time I have restored this library. The first I went from YouTube videos to Hulu. This was another of the libraries that have recently gone south due to Hulu's change of their business model. In this case, the collection was moved from being free videos to requiring a paid subscription. I should also mention that if you are offended by "dick jokes" you may want to avoid reading the titles of these episodes, whivh almost alays refer in one way or another to the main character, Dr. Dick Soloman. There is even one title that is called "Dick Jokes"! I am not sure how they got away with this on a major television network, but it was probably because they didn't put the titles on the episodes when you watched them on TV. The restored library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

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

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

      9/27/16 - Today I added Season 5 (thirty-four episodes) to the The Donna Reed Show library. The Donna Reed Show was an American situation comedy starring Donna Reed as the middle-class housewife, Donna Stone. Carl Betz co-stars as her pediatrician husband Dr. Alex Stone, and Shelley Fabares and Paul Petersen as their teenage children, Mary and Jeff. The show originally aired on ABC from September 24, 1958 to March 19, 1966. This effectively completes the library. Although the series actually had 8 seasons, these are from Hulu, which only has 5 seasons in thier collection. I will keep an eye out for more, but have never found any except those on Hulu. The library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

      9/26/16 - Today I added nine episodes too the 77 Sunset Strip Library. 77 Sunset Strip was an American television private detective series created by Roy Huggins and starring Efrem Zimbalist, Jr., Roger Smith and Edd Byrnes. The series revolves around two Los Angeles private detectives, both former government secret agents: Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. played Stuart ("Stu") Bailey, a character Huggins had originated in his 1946 novel The Double Take (which he later adapted into the 1948 movie I Love Trouble, starring Franchot Tone in the role). Roger Smith played Jeff Spencer, also a former government agent, and a nonpracticing attorney. The duo worked out of a stylish office at 77 Sunset Boulevard (colloquially known as "Sunset Strip"), between La Cienega Boulevard and Alta Loma Road on the south side of the Strip next door to Dean Martin's real-life lounge, Dino's Lodge. This library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog. This is the first time since May that I have found any episodes of the series - I will keep looking for more. The added episodes are:

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

      9/25/16 - Today I added fourteen episodes to Season 1 of the The Rifleman library after discovering that Hulu has expanded their collection of the series. The Rifleman (1958-1963) was an American Western television program starring Chuck Connors as rancher Lucas McCain and Johnny Crawford as his son, Mark McCain. It was set in the 1870s and 1880s in the town of North Fork, New Mexico Territory. It was one of the first prime time series on American television to show a widowed parent raising a child. The program was titled to reflect McCain's use of a modified Winchester rifle. Shown at the beginning of every episode in the opening credits, McCain would fire the rifle using the lever rather than pulling the trigger. This series has special significance for me because Chuck Connors had a house in Woodlands Hills not far from where I grew up in Canoga Park. Kids in my neighborhood would talk their parents into taking them to trick-or-treat in Woodland Hills because Mr. Connors would usually come to the door himself and distribute goodies on Halloween. This library is located Chuck Connors Catalog which can be accessed via the Western Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. The Rifleman library is also available seperately in the Western Shows Catalog. The added episodes are:

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

      9/24/16 - Today I created a new T.H.E. Cat library with ten episodes to start. T.H.E. Cat (1966–1967) was an American action drama that aired on NBC. Robert Loggia starred as the title character, Thomas Hewitt Edward Cat. Loggia played a retired circus acrobat and reformed thief, having spent an unspecified term in prison, and of Gypsy heritage. In the mold of famed private-eye Peter Gunn and the waterfront bar 'Mother's', Cat operated out of the 'Casa Del Gato' (House Of The Cat) in San Francisco, of which he was part owner. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Mystery, Detectives and Crime Drama Catalogs. I also added four more episodes to the Phil Silvers Show Library. The Phil Silvers Show, originally titled You'll Never Get Rich, was a sitcom which ran on CBS from 1955 to 1959 for 142 episodes, plus a 1959 special. The series starred Phil Silvers as Master Sergeant Ernest G. Bilko of the United States Army. The series was created and largely written by Nat Hiken, and won three consecutive Emmy Awards for Best Comedy Series. The show is sometimes titled Sergeant Bilko or simply Bilko in reruns, and is very often referred to by these names, both on-screen and by viewers. The show's success transformed Silvers from a journeyman comedian into a star, and writer-producer Hiken from a highly regarded behind-the-scenes comedy writer into a publicly recognized creator. I should mention that unfortunately some of these epidoes have had their opening credits edited out rather sloppily. In some cases they have managed to lop off the the first few seconds of the episode. It doesn't really ruin the experience, but it is kind of annoying. This library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog. The added episodes are: Hollywood, The Court Martial, Flying Saucers and The Genius.

      9/23/16 - Today I added all twenty-four episodes of Season 2 to The Waltons library. I have most of the first 8 Seasons bookmarked so many more to come. The Waltons (1971–1981) is about the family of John Walton Jr. (known as John-Boy): his six siblings, his parents John and Olivia Walton, and the elder John's parents Zebulon "Zeb" and Esther Walton. John-Boy is the oldest of the children, who becomes a journalist and novelist. Created by Earl Hamner, Jr., based on his book Spencer's Mountain, and a 1963 film of the same name, the show is centered on a family in a rural Virginia community during the Great Depression and World War II. Each episode is narrated at the opening and closing by a middle-aged John-Boy (voiced by author Earl Hamner on whom John-Boy is based). John Sr. manages to eke out a living for his family by operating a lumber mill with his sons' help as they grow older. The family income is augmented by some small-scale farming, and John occasionally hunts to put meat on the table. Stars: Richard Thomas, Ralph Waite, Michael Learned, Ellen Corby and Will Geer. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

      9/22/16 - Today I added seventeen episodes to The Lone Ranger library including Six Gun's Legacy and Pay Dirt from Season 1, plus all of the Seasons 2, 3 and 4 episodes currently in the library. I also started dividing up the library into proper Season order. The Lone Ranger was a TV show that starred Clayton Moore as the Lone Ranger and Jay Silverheels as Tonto. It was the ABC television network's first big hit of the early 1950s. Moore's tenure as the Ranger is probably the best-known treatment of the franchise. Moore was replaced in the third season by John Hart, but he returned for the final two seasons. The fifth and final season was the only one shot in color. A total of 221 episodes were made. Ths library is located in the Lone Ranger Catalog, which can be found in the Western Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      9/21/16 - Today I added Season 3 (twenty-six episodes) to the Dragnet (1967) Library. Jack Webb relaunched Dragnet in 1966, with NBC once again airing the series. He tried to persuade Ben Alexander to rejoin him as Frank Smith. Alexander was then committed to an ABC police series, Felony Squad, and the producers would not release him. Webb reluctantly came up with a new character to take the role of Joe Friday's partner, calling upon his longtime friend Harry Morgan to play Officer Bill Gannon. This library is available in the Dragnet Catalog, which can be found in the Action and Adventure and the Mystery, Detectives and Crime Drama Catalogs. These videos are from Hulu (sorry about the commercials). One more season to go.

      9/20/16 - Today I added nineteen episodes too the The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp library with the two available episodes of Season 2 and seventeen from Season 3. I have watched about a half-dozen of these shows and highly recommend it. The Earp character, as portayed by Hugh O'Brian, is really different from a lot of western heroes - he is strong and confident, but also humble. In all of the shows I've watched so far he manages to win each fight without killing anyone. The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp (1955-1961) was the first western television series written for adults, premiering four days before Gunsmoke on September 6, 1955. It was loosely based on the life of frontier marshal Wyatt Earp. The half-hour black-and-white program aired for 229 episodes on ABC from 1955 to 1961. O'Brian was chosen for the role in part because of his physical resemblance to early photographs of Wyatt Earp. I have most of the episodes for Season 4 - 6 bookmarked. So many more to come. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Western Shows Catalog.

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

      9/17/16 - Today I added thirty-nine episodes to the The Dick Van Dyke Show library, bringing us to the end of Season 3. The Dick Van Dyke Show was an American television sitcom that initially aired on CBS from October 3, 1961 to June 1, 1966, with a total of 158 half-hour episodes spanning over five seasons. The show was created by Carl Reiner and starred Dick Van Dyke, Rose Marie, Morey Amsterdam, Larry Mathews, and Mary Tyler Moore. It centered on the work and home life of television comedy writer Rob Petrie (Van Dyke). The show was produced by Reiner with Bill Persky and Sam Denoff. The series won 15 Emmy Awards. In 2002, it was ranked at 13 on TV Guide's 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time and in 2013, it was ranked at 20 on their list of the 60 Best Series'. This library is available in the Family Comedies & Drama and Funny Guys Catalogs, and can also be accessed via the Mary Tyler Moore Catalog. The added episodes start with The Sam Pomerantz Scandals (Season 2, Episode 24) and include all of the remaining episodes of Season 2 and Season 3. Most of these episodes are from Hulu.

      9/15/16 - Today I added ten more episodes too the Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet library. The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet was an American sitcom, airing on ABC from October 3, 1952, through March 26, 1966, starring the real-life Nelson family. After a long run on radio, the show was brought to television, where it continued its success, initially running simultaneously on radio and television. The series stars Ozzie Nelson and his wife, singer Harriet Nelson (née Snyder, professionally), and their young sons, David and Eric "Ricky" Nelson. Don DeFore had a recurring role as the Nelsons' friendly neighbor "Thorny". On a side note, this was the very first episodic TV series library I created. Up until then I had been only loading Feature Films. With (now) 217 episodes, it is also one of the largest libraries on the site. A few years ago I went through it and rearranged it into proper order, and also added season, episode and plot summary information. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added episodes are:

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

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

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

      9/11/16 - Today I added the last sixteen available episodes too the The Beverly Hillibillies Library. The added episodes include all of the Seasons 7, 8 and 9 episodes and completes the library until I find more of the missing ones. The Beverly Hillbillies was an American sitcom originally broadcast on CBS for nine seasons, from September 26, 1962, to March 23, 1971. The series starred Buddy Ebsen, Irene Ryan, Donna Douglas, and Max Baer, Jr. as a poor backwoods family who moved to Beverly Hills, California, after striking oil on their land. The show was produced by Filmways and was created by writer Paul Henning. It was followed by two other Henning-inspired country-cousin series on CBS: Petticoat Junction, and its spin-off Green Acres, which reversed the rags-to-riches model of The Beverly Hillbillies. The Beverly Hillbillies ranked among the top 20 most-watched programs on television for eight of its nine seasons, twice ranking as the number one series of the year, with a number of episodes that remain among the most-watched television episodes of all time. This library is locate in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

      9/10/16 - Today I added the twelve available episodes of Season 8 of The Andy Griffith Show Library. This completes the library until I find more of the missing episodes. The Andy Griffith Show was an American sitcom first televised on CBS between October 3, 1960 and April 1, 1968. The show, a semi-spin-off from an episode of The Danny Thomas Show, stars Andy Griffith, who portrays the widowed sheriff of the fictional small community of Mayberry, North Carolina. His life is complicated by an inept, but well-meaning deputy, Barney Fife (Don Knotts), a spinster aunt and housekeeper, Aunt Bee (Frances Bavier), and a precocious young son, Opie (Ron Howard). Local ne'er-do-wells, bumbling pals, and temperamental girlfriends further complicate his life. The series never placed lower than seventh in the Nielsen ratings and ended its final season at number one. This library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added episodes are all of Season 8 of the library.

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

      9/6/16 - Upon hearing this morning of the passing of Hugh O'Brian at the age of 91, I decided to see if I could find any Wyatt Earp episodes. I am happy to announce that I created a new The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp library with the twenty-six available episodes of Season 1. The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp (1955-1961) was the first western television series written for adults, premiering four days before Gunsmoke on September 6, 1955. It was loosely based on the life of frontier marshal Wyatt Earp. The half-hour black-and-white program aired for 229 episodes on ABC from 1955 to 1961 and featured Hugh O'Brian in the title role. O'Brian was chosen for the role in part because of his physical resemblance to early photographs of Wyatt Earp. Unfortunately I have only found 2 episodes of Season 2 thus far - but I have most of the episodes for Season 3 - 6 bookmarked. So.many more to come. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Western Shows Catalog.

      9/3/16 - Today I added Season 2 to The Saint library, which is as far as I can go until I find some later episodes. The Saint (1962–1969) was an ITC mystery spy thriller television series that aired in the UK on ITV. It was based on the literary character Simon Templar (played by Roger Moore). Templar was essentially a Robin Hood who stole from criminals, but kept the money. His nemesis was Chief Inspector Claude Teal who considered Templar a common criminal no matter whom he stole from. Roger Moore had earlier tried to buy the production rights to the Saint books himself and was delighted to be able to play the part. Moore eventually became co-owner of the show with Robert S. Baker when the show moved to color and the production credit became Bamore Productions. Most of the wardrobe Moore wore in the series was his own. He was reportedly offered the role of 007 at least twice during the run of the series, but had to turn it down both times owing to his television commitments. In one early episode of the series (titled 'Luella'), another character actually mistakes Templar for Bond. This library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

      9/1/16 - Today I added the episodes to the Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet library. The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet was an American sitcom, airing on ABC from October 3, 1952, through March 26, 1966, starring the real-life Nelson family. After a long run on radio, the show was brought to television, where it continued its success, initially running simultaneously on radio and television. The series stars Ozzie Nelson and his wife, singer Harriet Nelson (née Snyder, professionally), and their young sons, David and Eric "Ricky" Nelson. Don DeFore had a recurring role as the Nelsons' friendly neighbor "Thorny". On a side note, this was the very first episodic TV series library I created. Up until then I had been only loading Feature Films. With (now) 207 episodes, it is also one of the largest libraries on the site. A few years ago I went through it and rearranged it into proper order, and also added season, episode and plot summary information. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added episodes are:

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

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

      8/30/16 - Today I added eighteen episodes to the Get Smart Library which completes Season 1 and takes us too the 9th episode of Season 2. Get Smart (1965–1970) was an American comedy television series that satirized the secret agent genre. The show starred Don Adams (as Maxwell Smart, Agent 86), Barbara Feldon (as Agent 99). Created by Mel Brooks with Buck Henry, Brooks said: "It's an insane combination of James Bond and Mel Brooks comedy." During the show's run, it generated a number of popular catchphrases, including "Would you believe...", "Missed it by that much!", "Sorry about that, Chief", "The Old (such-and-such) Trick", "And... loving it", and "I asked you not to tell me that". The new library is located in the Funny Guys Catalogs, and because it deals with espionage (albeit in a comical fashion), it is also found in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog. On a personal note, this show was on right at the end of my high school years and was one of the few that I continued to watch regularly into my college days. It is one of the funniest shows I remember watching and I highly recommend it. I have most of the Season 1, 2 and 3 episodes from Daily Motion, so many more to come.

      8/29/16 - Late last night I discovered that Hulu had taken down their The Lone Ranger library without any notice. I'd had 33 of the series episodes, mostly from Hulu. I went out and searched for episodes on Daily Motion and the Internet Archive and found enough of them that I was able to restore the library with thirty episodes. In the process I found a number of episodes that weren't in the original library, including several from Season 5 of the series, which were filmed in color. The new episodes are the last 8 in the library. The Lone Ranger was a TV show that starred Clayton Moore as the Lone Ranger and Jay Silverheels as Tonto. It was the ABC television network's first big hit of the early 1950s. Moore's tenure as the Ranger is probably the best-known treatment of the franchise. Moore was replaced in the third season by John Hart, but he returned for the final two seasons. The fifth and final season was the only one shot in color. A total of 221 episodes were made. Ths library is located in the Lone Ranger Catalog, which can be found in the Western Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

      8/21/16 - Today I created a new The Waltons library with twenty-three of the twenty-four episodes that make up Season 1 of the series. These are all I have found so far but I will keep looking for more of them. The show ran for 9 seasons. The Waltons (1971–1981) is about the family of John Walton Jr. (known as John-Boy): his six siblings, his parents John and Olivia Walton, and the elder John's parents Zebulon "Zeb" and Esther Walton. John-Boy is the oldest of the children, who becomes a journalist and novelist. Created by Earl Hamner, Jr., based on his book Spencer's Mountain, and a 1963 film of the same name, the show is centered on a family in a rural Virginia community during the Great Depression and World War II. Each episode is narrated at the opening and closing by a middle-aged John-Boy (voiced by author Earl Hamner on whom John-Boy is based). John Sr. manages to eke out a living for his family by operating a lumber mill with his sons' help as they grow older. The family income is augmented by some small-scale farming, and John occasionally hunts to put meat on the table. Stars: Richard Thomas, Ralph Waite, Michael Learned, Ellen Corby and Will Geer. I have to admit that I never watched this show - in 1971, when it premiered, I was living in Berkeley, CA, pursuing my musical career, and didn't even own a TV. The new library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

      8/20/16 - Today I created a new The Saint library with all twelve episodes of Season 1. The Saint (1962–1969) was an ITC mystery spy thriller television series that aired in the UK on ITV. It was based on the literary character Simon Templar (played by Roger Moore). Templar was essentially a Robin Hood who stole from criminals, but kept the money. His nemesis was Chief Inspector Claude Teal who considered Templar a common criminal no matter whom he stole from. Roger Moore had earlier tried to buy the production rights to the Saint books himself and was delighted to be able to play the part. Moore eventually became co-owner of the show with Robert S. Baker when the show moved to color and the production credit became Bamore Productions. Most of the wardrobe Moore wore in the series was his own. He was reportedly offered the role of 007 at least twice during the run of the series, but had to turn it down both times owing to his television commitments. In one early episode of the series (titled 'Luella'), another character actually mistakes Templar for Bond. I urrently have all 27 episodes of Season 2 bookmarked, so more to come. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

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

      8/16/16 - Today I added the available episodes (twenty-one of them) to Season 3 of Stargate SG-1. Stargate SG-1 was an adventure and military science fiction television series produced by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. The show, created by Brad Wright and Jonathan Glassner, is based on the 1994 science fiction film Stargate by Dean Devlin and Roland Emmerich. SG-1 is an elite United States Air Force special operations team, one of about 20 teams from Earth who explore the galaxy and defend against alien threats. I highly recommend this series, in fact, I am currently re-watching it on Hulu, which has all of the episodes, but does not make them available for emdedded streaming. Even though I don't have all of the episodes in my library, the individual shows hold up very well on their own, and the characters and plots are very imaginitive and entertaining. This library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog.

      8/15/16 - Today I created a new Mission: Impossible Library with all twenty-eight episodes of Season 1 of the series. Mission: Impossible was an American television series that was created and initially produced by Bruce Geller. It chronicled the missions of a team of secret government agents known as the Impossible Missions Force (IMF). In the first season, the team is led by Dan Briggs, played by Steven Hill; Jim Phelps, played by Peter Graves, takes charge for the remaining seasons. A hallmark of the series shows Briggs or Phelps receiving his instructions on a recording that then self-destructs, followed by the theme music composed by Lalo Schifrin. The series was filmed and financed by Desilu Productions, and aired on the CBS network from September 1966 to March 1973. The series was reprised in 1988 for two seasons on ABC, retaining only Graves in the cast. It also inspired a series of theatrical motion pictures starring Tom Cruise, beginning in 1996. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

      8/13/16 - Today I added twenty-eight of the thirty episodes of Season 7 to the Andy Griffith Show Library. One season left to go. The Andy Griffith Show was an American sitcom first televised on CBS between October 3, 1960 and April 1, 1968. The show, a semi-spin-off from an episode of The Danny Thomas Show, stars Andy Griffith, who portrays the widowed sheriff of the fictional small community of Mayberry, North Carolina. His life is complicated by an inept, but well-meaning deputy, Barney Fife (Don Knotts), a spinster aunt and housekeeper, Aunt Bee (Frances Bavier), and a precocious young son, Opie (Ron Howard). Local ne'er-do-wells, bumbling pals, and temperamental girlfriends further complicate his life. The series never placed lower than seventh in the Nielsen ratings and ended its final season at number one. This library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

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

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

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

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

      8/9/16 - Today I added ten episodes to the Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet library. The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet was an American sitcom, airing on ABC from October 3, 1952, through March 26, 1966, starring the real-life Nelson family. After a long run on radio, the show was brought to television, where it continued its success, initially running simultaneously on radio and television. The series stars Ozzie Nelson and his wife, singer Harriet Nelson (née Snyder, professionally), and their young sons, David and Eric "Ricky" Nelson. Don DeFore had a recurring role as the Nelsons' friendly neighbor "Thorny". On a side note, this was the very first episodic TV series library I created. Up until then I had been only loading Feature Films. With (now) 197 episodes, it is also one of the largest libraries on the site. A few years ago I went through it and rearranged it into proper order, and also added season, episode and plot summary information. In recent years quite a few of these episodes have appeared on the Internet Archive, but most of them were duplicates of episodes I already had in the library. These 10 are the first I have added since June. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added episodes are:

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

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

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

      While I was at it I also added eight episodes to the Public Defender library. The Public Defender (1954-1955) was a half-hour 69-episode television dramatic series starring Reed Hadley (1911-1974) as stoic but driven public defender Bart Matthews, whose clients cannot otherwise afford expensive legal representation. The concept of the public defender was little known in the United States except in capital cases. A 1932 United States Supreme Court decision Powell v. Alabama clarified the need for public defenders for suspects accused of crimes which if convicted might lead to execution. The use of public defenders was broadened in 1962 in another high court case, Gideon v. Wainwright to include public defenders for all suspects charged with any level of felony, a broadening of the Powell ruling. The Public Defender purportedly based each episode on true cases, and each segment closes with a tribute to a public defender. The added episodes are:

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

      8/3/16 - Today I added the available Season 4 episodes (thirty-twp of them) to the Bonanza Library. Bonanza was an NBC television western series that ran from 1959 to 1973. Lasting 14 seasons and 431 episodes, Bonanza is NBC's longest-running western, and ranks overall as the second-longest-running western series on U.S. network television (behind CBS' Gunsmoke), and within the top 10 longest-running, live-action American series. The show continues to air in syndication. The show is set around the 1860s and it centers on the wealthy Cartwright family, who live in the area of Virginia City, Nevada, bordering Lake Tahoe. The series stars Lorne Greene, Dan Blocker, Michael Landon, Pernell Roberts (who left after six seasons), and later David Canary and Mitch Vogel. I still have several full seasons bookmarked, including Seasons 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11 and 13 - so lots more to come. This library is located in the Western Shows and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs.

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

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

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

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

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

      7/16/15 - Today I created a new Frasier library with all twenty-four episodes of Season 1 of the series. Frasier (1993-2004) was an American sitcom that was broadcast on NBC for eleven seasons. The series was created as a spin-off of Cheers, continuing the story of psychiatrist Frasier Crane as he returned to his hometown of Seattle and started building a new life. Frasier stars Kelsey Grammer, David Hyde Pierce, John Mahoney, Jane Leeves, Peri Gilpin, and Moose/Enzo. The new library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog. I am consistantly amazed at some of the things I find on the Daily Motion streaming site. I have all but 3 of the episodes of this 11 Season series bookmarked, so many. many more to come!

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

      7/13/16 - Today I added six episodes to the Public Defender library, increasing the library by 60%. The Public Defender (1954-1955) was a half-hour 69-episode television dramatic series starring Reed Hadley (1911-1974) as stoic but driven public defender Bart Matthews, whose clients cannot otherwise afford expensive legal representation. The concept of the public defender was little known in the United States except in capital cases. A 1932 United States Supreme Court decision Powell v. Alabama clarified the need for public defenders for suspects accused of crimes which if convicted might lead to execution. The use of public defenders was broadened in 1962 in another high court case, Gideon v. Wainwright to include public defenders for all suspects charged with any level of felony, a broadening of the Powell ruling. The Public Defender purportedly based each episode on true cases, and each segment closes with a tribute to a public defender. The library, which was one of the earliest ones I built and so I decided to rearrange it into proper order, adding Season, Episode, and Plot Summary info, is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Ctalog. The added episodes are:

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

      7/12/16 - Today I added eleven episodes to the General Electric Theater library. General Electric Theater was an American anthology series hosted by Ronald Reagan that was broadcast on CBS radio and television. The series was sponsored by General Electric's Department of Public Relations. The television version of the program was broadcast from February 1, 1953, until May 27, 1962. Each of the estimated 209 television episodes was an adaptation of a novel, short story, play, film, or magazine fiction. An exception was the 1954 episode "Music for Christmas", which featured choral director Fred Waring and his group The Pennsylvanians performing Christmas music. On September 26, 1954, Ronald Reagan debuted as the only host of the program. GE added a host to provide continuity in the anthology format. This library is located in the Television Drama Catalog. The added episodes are:

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

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

      7/8/16 - Last night I created a new Get Smart Library with the first twenty-one episodes to start. Get Smart (1965–1970) was an American comedy television series that satirized the secret agent genre. The show starred Don Adams (as Maxwell Smart, Agent 86), Barbara Feldon (as Agent 99). Created by Mel Brooks with Buck Henry, Brooks said: "It's an insane combination of James Bond and Mel Brooks comedy." During the show's run, it generated a number of popular catchphrases, including "Would you believe...", "Missed it by that much!", "Sorry about that, Chief", "The Old (such-and-such) Trick", "And... loving it", and "I asked you not to tell me that". The new library is located in the Funny Guys Catalogs, and because it deals with espionage (albeit in a comical fashion), it is also found in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog. On a personal note, this show was on right at the end of my high school years and was one of the few that I continued to watch regularly into my college days. It is one of the funniest shows I remember watching and I highly recommend it. I have most of the Season 1, 2 and 3 episodes from Daily Motion, so many more to come.

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

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

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

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

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

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

      6/27/16- Today I created a new Barney Miller library with twenty of the twenty-two episodes that make up Season 2 of the series. Of course, I would rather start with the first season, but hey, you take what you can get. Barney Miller was an American sitcom set in a New York City Police Department police station in Greenwich Village. The series originally was broadcast from January 23, 1975, to May 20, 1982, on ABC. Barney Miller takes place almost entirely within the confines of the detectives' squad room and Captain Barney Miller's adjoining office of New York City's fictional 12th Precinct, located in Greenwich Village. A typical episode would feature the detectives of the 12th bringing in several complainants and/or suspects to the squad room. Usually, two or three separate subplots are in a given episode, with different officers dealing with different crimes. Once a year, an episode would feature one or more of the detectives outside of the walls of the precinct, either on a stakeout or at one of their homes. This is yet another Daily Motion sourced library so I am hopefull that they will last on the site, and that eventually I will find more of them. The new library is located in the Funny Guys Catalogs, and, since it occasionally deals with dramatic situations, it is also found in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

      6/24/16 - Today I restored my Hogan's Heroes library with all thirty-two episodes of Season 1 (thanks again to Daily Motion). Hogan's Heroes (1965-1971) was an American television sitcom set in a German prisoner of war (POW) camp during World War II. It ran on the CBS network. Bob Crane starred as Colonel Robert E. Hogan, co-ordinating an international crew of Allied prisoners running a Special Operations group from the camp. Werner Klemperer played Colonel Wilhelm Klink, the incompetent commandant of the camp, and John Banner was the inept sergeant-of-the-guard, Hans Schultz. This library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Funny Guys Catalogs. This the second time I have restored the first Season, which is all I have ever had in the library. The last time I again used YouTube videos and lost them again within a few weeks. This time I am using Daily Motion videos and I have all 6 Seasons bookmarked except for one episode from the Season 6. So stay tuned for a major expansion.

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

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

      6/20/16 - Today I started restoring the Gomer Pyle USMC Library, including ten from Season 1 (all I have found so far) and twenty-nine episodes from Season 3 (thank you, Daily Motion). Gomer Pyle was a television character played by Jim Nabors and introduced in the middle of the third season of The Andy Griffith Show. Pyle, was a simpleminded and gentle auto mechanic. Nabors played Pyle for 23 episodes from 1962 to 1964. After two seasons on The Andy Griffith Show, Griffith proposed a show based on the Gomer Pyle character. In 1964, the character was spun off into Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C. The bad news is that I am still missing a lot, including most of Seasoon 1 all of the Season 2 episodes. But on the other hand, I have found many episodes I didn't have in the original library, including all of the Season 4 episodes, which I will post on the near future. Ths library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog.

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

      6/17/16 - Today I added thirteen episodes to the Rawhide library. Rawhide was an American Western TV series starring Eric Fleming and Clint Eastwood that aired for eight seasons on the CBS network on Friday nights, from January 9, 1959 to September 3, 1965, before moving to Tuesday nights from September 14, 1965 until January 4, 1966, with a total of 217 black-and-white episodes. The series was produced and sometimes directed by Charles Marquis Warren, who also produced early episodes of Gunsmoke. This was Eastwood's stepping stone to fame and fortune as he became one of the few TV stars to successfully make the move into starring roles in movies. I have the entire series bookmarked, so many more to come! This library is located in the Western Shows Catalog. The added episodes include the first episode of the series (Season 1, Episode 1 - Tumbleweed), the only episode of Season 5 currently in the library and all of the Season 8 episodes.

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

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

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

      6/13/6 - Today I found a cache of Wagon Train episodes. When I went to inspect the original library I discovered that it had vanished except for six episodes. I was able to add seventeen to the library, which quadrupled it's size to a total of 24 episodes. Wagon Train was an American Western series that ran on NBC 1957–62 and then on ABC 1962–65. The series initially starred veteran movie supporting actor Ward Bond as the wagon master, later replaced upon his death by John McIntire, and Robert Horton as the scout, subsequently replaced by Scott Miller and Robert Fuller. The show chronicles the adventures of a wagon train as it makes its way from Missouri to California, and most episodes featured a guest star who played the part of the character for which the episode was titled. This library is located in the Western Shows Catalog. The added episodes are:

      Annie Griffith
      Jose Maria Moran
      C.L. Harding
      Elizabeth McQueeny
      Countess Baranof

      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

      Robbery
      Pursuit

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

      6/8/16 - Today I added twenty-five episodes to the Petticoat Junction library, which brings us too Season 2, Episode 16. Petticoat Junction was an American situation comedy that originally aired on CBS. The series takes place at the Shady Rest Hotel, which is run by Kate Bradley, her Uncle Joe Carson, and her three daughters Billie Jo, Bobbie Jo, and Betty Jo Bradley. The series is one of three interrelated shows about rural characters created by Paul Henning. Petticoat Junction was created upon the success of Henning's previous rural/urban-themed sitcom The Beverly Hillbillies (1962–1971). The success of Petticoat Junction led to a spin-off, Green Acres (1965–1971). This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas, Funny Guys and the Whacky Dames Catalogs. The added episodes are:

      Is There a Doctor?
      Very Old Antique

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

      6/6/16 - Today I added eighteen episodes to the Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet library. The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet was an American sitcom, airing on ABC from October 3, 1952, through March 26, 1966, starring the real-life Nelson family. After a long run on radio, the show was brought to television, where it continued its success, initially running simultaneously on radio and television. The series stars Ozzie Nelson and his wife, singer Harriet Nelson (née Snyder, professionally Hilliard), and their young sons, David and Eric "Ricky" Nelson. Don DeFore had a recurring role as the Nelsons' friendly neighbor "Thorny". This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added episodes are:

      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:

      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:

      At Miss Minner's
      The Stone
      I Was a Bloodhound
      Incredible Jewel Robbery
      Nora
      Night Club
      Adam's Apples
      Journal of Hope
      The Graduation Dress
      Little White Lye
      Joke's on Me
      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 Uranium Pile
      Topper's Spring Cleaning
      Topper Goes to School
      Topper's Highland Fling
      Topper's Desert Island
      The Neighbors
      Topper's Counterfeiters
      Topper's Insurance Scandal
      Topper's Other Job

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

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

      5/24/16 - Late last night I visited my Route 66 Library and discovered that about half of it (all the YouTube videos) had vanished. Fortunately, I happened to find a bunch of them on the Internet Archive a few weeks ago and planned to switch them out. While I was at it I managed to add a few episodes not in the original library, including: The Thin White Line, City of Wheels, Between Hello and Goodbye, Lizard's Leg & Owlet's Wing, Same Picture Different Frame and I'm Here to Kill a King. Unfortunately, I was unable to restore several of them, but all in all I ended up with fourteen episodes, for a net gain of one. Route 66 followed two young men traversing the United States in a Chevrolet Corvette convertible, and the events and consequences surrounding their journeys. Martin Milner starred as Tod Stiles, a recent college graduate with no future prospects due to circumstances beyond his control. He was originally joined on his travels by Buz Murdock, a friend and former employee of his father (played by George Maharis), with the character leaving midway through the third season after contracting echovirus. Near the end of the third season Tod met a recently discharged Vietnam veteran named Lincoln Case, played by Glenn Corbett, who decided to follow Tod on his travels and stayed with him until the final episode. The new library is located in the Television Drama Catalog. I also decided to finish my Dante Library. Dante was an NBC adventure/drama television series starring Howard Duff as Willie Dante, a former gambler who operated Dante's Inferno, a San Francisco, California, nightclub. Dick Powell had previously played Dante in eight episodes of his Four Star Playhouse, initially written by Blake Edwards. This library, which containes 24 of the 26 total episodes from the Howard Duff series and 7 0f the 8 original episodes with Dick Powell, is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

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

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

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

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

      5/19/16 - Today I created a new Dick Powell Theatre Library with seven episodes to start. Richard Ewing "Dick" Powell (November 14, 1904 – January 2, 1963) was an American singer, actor, film producer, film director and studio head. Though he came to stardom as a musical comedy performer, he showed versatility and successfully transformed into a hardbitten leading man starring in projects of a more dramatic nature. He was the first actor to portray the private detective Philip Marlowe on screen. The Dick Powell Theatre was an American anthology series that ran on NBC from 1961 to 1963, primarily sponsored by the Reynolds Metals Company. It was hosted by longtime film star Dick Powell until his death from lymphatic cancer on January 2, 1963, then by a series of guest hosts until the series ended. The new library is located in the Television Drama Catalog.

      5/18/15 - Today I added seventeen episodes to the Perry Mason Library, including The Case of the Purple Woman, The Case of the Petulant Partner and all of the Season 3 and later episodes. In 1956, Raymond Burr auditioned for the role of District Attorney Hamilton Burger in Perry Mason, a new courtroom drama based on the highly successful novels written and created by Erle Stanley Gardner that was to air on CBS. The producers of the show allowed Burr to try for the title role and when Gardner, who was present at the audition, saw him he declared, "He is Perry Mason." Burr eventually won the role with which he was most closely identified. This library can be found in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog, and also in the Raymond Burr Catalog, which is also located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog, plus the Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      5/17/16 - Today I restored my Dante Library with ten episodes so far. I have more in the pipeline so stay tuned. Dante was an NBC adventure/drama television series starring Howard Duff as Willie Dante, a former gambler who operated Dante's Inferno, a San Francisco, California, nightclub. Alan Mowbray co-starred as Stewart Styles, the Maitre d', Tom D'Andrea as Biff, the bartender and Dante's "man Friday", and Mort Mills as police Lieutenant Bob Malone. Dante claimed to have put his past behind him but has retained old associates Stewart and Biff. While his club is legitimate, neither the police nor the mob believe that he is truly finished with the criminal underworld. Dante's old associates in crime keep appearing at the club in efforts to lure him back to the underworld. Dick Powell had previously played Dante in eight episodes of his Four Star Playhouse, initially written by Blake Edwards, who had previously created the radio drama Richard Diamond, Private Detective for Powell. There, Willie operated an illegal gambling operation in the back room of the "Inferno", which police soon shut down. The only regular from the Four Star Playhouse version to be cast in the series as well was Mowbray, who had first played a millionaire named Jackson who had gambled away his fortune and then worked as one of Dante's waiters. This library, which containes episodes from both the Howard Duff series and the original version with Dick Powell, is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog. I also posted all eighteen of the available Season 2 episodes of Stargate SG-1. Stargate SG-1 was an adventure and military science fiction television series produced by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. The show, created by Brad Wright and Jonathan Glassner, is based on the 1994 science fiction film Stargate by Dean Devlin and Roland Emmerich. SG-1 is an elite United States Air Force special operations team, one of about 20 teams from Earth who explore the galaxy and defend against alien threats. This library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog.

      5/16/16 - Last night I made another momentous discoverey on Daily Motion - over 300 episodes of Bonanza! I went ahead and added sixteen episodes to fill out Season 1. Bonanza was an NBC television western series that ran from 1959 to 1973. Lasting 14 seasons and 431 episodes, Bonanza is NBC's longest-running western, and ranks overall as the second-longest-running western series on U.S. network television (behind CBS' Gunsmoke), and within the top 10 longest-running, live-action American series. The show continues to air in syndication. The show is set around the 1860s and it centers on the wealthy Cartwright family, who live in the area of Virginia City, Nevada, bordering Lake Tahoe. The series stars Lorne Greene, Dan Blocker, Michael Landon, Pernell Roberts (who left after six seasons), and later David Canary and Mitch Vogel. This was one of the first libraries I created in 2010 when I first opened the Uncle Earl site. I had a few episodes from the first two seasons and haven't added any since the library was first built. I have several full seasons bookmarked, including the remainder of Season 2 and the library will eventualy expand to include episodes from Seasons 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11 and 13 - so lots more to come. This library is located in the Western Shows and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs. The added episodes include:

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

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

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

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

      5/12/16 - Today I added all thirty episodes of Season 2 to the The Man from U.N.C.L.E. library. The Man from U.N.C.L.E. was an American television series that was broadcast on NBC from September 22, 1964, to January 15, 1968. It followed secret agents, played by Robert Vaughn and David McCallum, who worked for a secret international counter espionage and law enforcement agency called U.N.C.L.E. Originally, co-creator Sam Rolfe wanted to leave the meaning of U.N.C.L.E. ambiguous so it could refer to either "Uncle Sam" or the United Nations. Concerns by the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer legal department about using "U.N." for commercial purposes resulted in the producers' clarification that U.N.C.L.E. was an acronym for the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement. Each episode had an "acknowledgement" to the U.N.C.L.E. in the end titles. The first two seasons are all that I have found so far, but I will keep looking. Season 2, by the way, was filmed in color, unlike Season 1, which was in black and white. This library is located in the Action and Adventure and Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

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

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

      5/9/16 - Today I added seventeen more episodes to the The Beverly Hillibillies Library. The added episodes include all of the Seasons 5 and 6 episodes in the library. The Beverly Hillbillies was an American sitcom originally broadcast on CBS for nine seasons, from September 26, 1962, to March 23, 1971. The series starred Buddy Ebsen, Irene Ryan, Donna Douglas, and Max Baer, Jr. as a poor backwoods family who moved to Beverly Hills, California, after striking oil on their land. The show was produced by Filmways and was created by writer Paul Henning. It was followed by two other Henning-inspired country-cousin series on CBS: Petticoat Junction, and its spin-off Green Acres, which reversed the rags-to-riches model of The Beverly Hillbillies. The Beverly Hillbillies ranked among the top 20 most-watched programs on television for eight of its nine seasons, twice ranking as the number one series of the year, with a number of episodes that remain among the most-watched television episodes of all time. This library is locate in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

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

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

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

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

      5/5/6 - Today I restored all one-hundred-and-thirty-nine episodes of my 3rd Rock from the Sun Library from Hulu. 3rd Rock from the Sun (sometimes referred to as simply 3rd Rock) was an American sitcom that aired from 1996 to 2001 on NBC. The premise of the show revolves around an extraterrestrial research expedition attempting to live as a normal human family in the fictional city of Rutherford, Ohio, said to be 52 miles outside of Cleveland, where they live in an attic apartment. Humor was principally derived from the aliens' attempts to study human society and, because of their living as humans themselves while on Earth, to understand the human condition. I was able to restore this library fairly quickly because the previous version contained all of the series episodes, so all of those pages were already built. This library was the first YouTube hosted library on the site, and it disappeared in a matter of weeks after I created it. The restored library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

      5/4/16 - Today, for the first time in at least 5 years, I added nineteen episodes to The Beverly Hillibillies Library. The last time I did ANY work on this library was back in 2014 when I added season, episode and plot summary information and arranged the episodes into the proper order. The Beverly Hillbillies was an American sitcom originally broadcast on CBS for nine seasons, from September 26, 1962, to March 23, 1971. The series starred Buddy Ebsen, Irene Ryan, Donna Douglas, and Max Baer, Jr. as a poor backwoods family who moved to Beverly Hills, California, after striking oil on their land. The show was produced by Filmways and was created by writer Paul Henning. It was followed by two other Henning-inspired country-cousin series on CBS: Petticoat Junction, and its spin-off Green Acres, which reversed the rags-to-riches model of The Beverly Hillbillies. The Beverly Hillbillies ranked among the top 20 most-watched programs on television for eight of its nine seasons, twice ranking as the number one series of the year, with a number of episodes that remain among the most-watched television episodes of all time. This library is locate in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. The added episodes are all those from Seasons 3 and 4. I have 33 more of these episodes bookmarked so watch for further expansion in the near future.

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

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

      5/1/16 - Today I restored my 77 Sunset Strip Library and then some. The original library had a grand total of 2 episodes - the new one has twenty-seven! All this was possible because I found a cache of videos on Daily Motion. 77 Sunset Strip was an American television private detective series created by Roy Huggins and starring Efrem Zimbalist, Jr., Roger Smith and Edd Byrnes. The series revolves around two Los Angeles private detectives, both former government secret agents: Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. played Stuart ("Stu") Bailey, a character Huggins had originated in his 1946 novel The Double Take (which he later adapted into the 1948 movie I Love Trouble, starring Franchot Tone in the role). Roger Smith played Jeff Spencer, also a former government agent, and a nonpracticing attorney. The duo worked out of a stylish office at 77 Sunset Boulevard (colloquially known as "Sunset Strip"), between La Cienega Boulevard and Alta Loma Road on the south side of the Strip next door to Dean Martin's real-life lounge, Dino's Lodge. The restored library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

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

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

      4/27/16 - Today I added twenty-six episodes to the Andy Griffith Show Library, which brings us too the end of Season 6. The Andy Griffith Show was an American sitcom first televised on CBS between October 3, 1960 and April 1, 1968. The show, a semi-spin-off from an episode of The Danny Thomas Show, stars Andy Griffith, who portrays the widowed sheriff of the fictional small community of Mayberry, North Carolina. His life is complicated by an inept, but well-meaning deputy, Barney Fife (Don Knotts), a spinster aunt and housekeeper, Aunt Bee (Frances Bavier), and a precocious young son, Opie (Ron Howard). Local ne'er-do-wells, bumbling pals, and temperamental girlfriends further complicate his life. The series never placed lower than seventh in the Nielsen ratings and ended its final season at number one. I have all of the remaining episodes bookmarked, so when the library is done it will include the complete series. This library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. By the way, Season 6 was when the series started being shot in color!

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

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

      4/25/16 - Today I spent most of the afternoon doing maintenance work on the site and then add nine episodes to the General Electric Theater library. General Electric Theater was an American anthology series hosted by Ronald Reagan that was broadcast on CBS radio and television. The series was sponsored by General Electric's Department of Public Relations. The television version of the program was broadcast from February 1, 1953, until May 27, 1962. Each of the estimated 209 television episodes was an adaptation of a novel, short story, play, film, or magazine fiction. An exception was the 1954 episode "Music for Christmas", which featured choral director Fred Waring and his group The Pennsylvanians performing Christmas music. On September 26, 1954, Ronald Reagan debuted as the only host of the program. GE added a host to provide continuity in the anthology format. This library is located in the Television Drama Catalog. The added episodes are:

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

      4/24/16 - Today I was a little pressed for time so I worked on a couple of small libraries. First I added four episodes to the Window on Main Street library, which triples the size of said library from 2 to 6 episodes. Window on Main Street was an American half-hour comedy-drama television series starring Robert Young, which aired on CBS during the 1961-1962 season. Created by Roswell Rogers, Window on Main Street was produced by its star, Robert Young. Young, whose Father Knows Best series had ended production a year earlier, was cast as Cameron "Cam" Garrett Brooks, a widower-author, who returns to his hometown of fictional Millsberg, possibly in New England, but no state is ever given as the location of the series. Cam renews his friendship with Lloyd Ramsey, the editor of the local newspaper, portrayed in eleven episodes by Ford Rainey. The people of Millsberg become the subjects of Cam's stories. This library is located in the Family Comedies & Drama and the Robert Young Catalogs. I also created a new Classic Movie Bloopers library, which consists of nine Warner Brothers feature films outtake reels (called "Breakdowns"), produced by WB in the 1930s and 40s to show during the annual Warner Brothers Christmas parties that took place in 1936, 1937, 1938, 1939, 1940, 1941, 1946 and 1947. The new library is located in the Feature Films and the Other Short Film Catalogs. 4/23/16 - Today I created a new June Allyson Show library with ninteen episodes to start. The June Allyson Show (1959–1961) (also known as The DuPont Show with June Allyson) was an American anthology drama series which aired on CBS. The series was hosted by actress June Allyson and was a Four Star-Pamric Production. Allyson was the third woman in network history to host such a series, along with Loretta Young and Jane Wyman. She not only hosted the series but starred in nearly two dozen of the fifty-seven produced episodes. This library is located in the Television Drama Catalog. Later today I decided to look around for June June Allyson Films and found eight of them. So I created a library to hold them, and then created a June Allyson Catalog to house the 2 new libraries. The new catalog is located in the Feature Films Catalog and in the Catalog of Stars.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

      4/15/16 - Today I added twenty episodes to the The Doris Day Show, bringing us to Season 3 Episode 11. Doris Day (born Doris Mary Ann Kappelhoff; April 3, 1922 or 1924) is an American actress, singer, and animal rights activist. Day began her career as a big band singer in 1939. Her popularity began to rise after her first hit recording "Sentimental Journey", in 1945. After leaving Les Brown & His Band of Renown to embark on a solo career, Day started her long-lasting partnership with Columbia Records, which remained her only recording label. Over the course of her career, Day appeared in 39 films. She was ranked the biggest box-office star, the only woman appearing on that list in the era, for four years (1960, 1962, 1963 and 1964), ranking in the top 10 for ten years (1951–1952 and 1959–1966). All of this is located in the Doris Day Catalog, which is located in the Feature Films Catalog and in the Catalog of Stars. The Doris Day Show can also be found in the Whacky Dames an the Family Comedies & Drama Catalogs. The added episodes are all of the ones on the 3rd library page.

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

      4/14/16 - Today I added eighteen episodes to the Phil Silvers Show Library with eighteen episodes so far. I had a pretty extensive collection of these shows at one time - almost the entire series, but they were taken down off YouTube. In fact as I remember it, this was one of the first libraries I lost way back when. I found a cache of 33 episodes on the Internet Archive, so I have hopes that these will survive. The Phil Silvers Show, originally titled You'll Never Get Rich, was a sitcom which ran on CBS from 1955 to 1959 for 142 episodes, plus a 1959 special. The series starred Phil Silvers as Master Sergeant Ernest G. Bilko of the United States Army. The series was created and largely written by Nat Hiken, and won three consecutive Emmy Awards for Best Comedy Series. The show is sometimes titled Sergeant Bilko or simply Bilko in reruns, and is very often referred to by these names, both on-screen and by viewers. The show's success transformed Silvers from a journeyman comedian into a star, and writer-producer Hiken from a highly regarded behind-the-scenes comedy writer into a publicly recognized creator. I should mention that unfortunately some of these epidoes have had their opening credits edited out rather sloppily. In some cases they have managed to lop off the the first few seconds of the episode. It doesn't really ruin the experience, but it is kind of annoying. This library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog. More to come. The added episodes are are the 1st and 3rd ones on the first page of the library and all of the episodes on the second page, and these are all that I have found so far - but I will keep looking.

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

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

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

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

      4/10/16 - Today I added nineteen episodes to Season 2 (which is all I have found of the season) to the Perry Mason Library. In 1956, Raymond Burr auditioned for the role of District Attorney Hamilton Burger in Perry Mason, a new courtroom drama based on the highly successful novels written and created by Erle Stanley Gardner that was to air on CBS. The producers of the show allowed Burr to try for the title role and when Gardner, who was present at the audition, saw him he declared, "He is Perry Mason." Burr eventually won the role with which he was most closely identified. I have lots of these episodes bookmarked so many more to come! This library can be found in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog, and also in the Raymond Burr Catalog, which is also located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog, plus the Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

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

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

      4/8/16 - Today I added twenty-two episodes to the Petticoat Junction library, which more than quadruples the size of the library, from 7 to 29 episodes. Petticoat Junction was an American situation comedy that originally aired on CBS. The series takes place at the Shady Rest Hotel, which is run by Kate Bradley, her Uncle Joe Carson, and her three daughters Billie Jo, Bobbie Jo, and Betty Jo Bradley. The series is one of three interrelated shows about rural characters created by Paul Henning. Petticoat Junction was created upon the success of Henning's previous rural/urban-themed sitcom The Beverly Hillbillies (1962–1971). The success of Petticoat Junction led to a spin-off, Green Acres (1965–1971). This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas, Funny Guys and the Whacky Dames Catalogs. The added episodes are:

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

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

      4/6/16 - Today I added the first twenty-seven episodes of Season 5 to the Andy Griffith Show Library. The Andy Griffith Show was an American sitcom first televised on CBS between October 3, 1960 and April 1, 1968. The show, a semi-spin-off from an episode of The Danny Thomas Show, stars Andy Griffith, who portrays the widowed sheriff of the fictional small community of Mayberry, North Carolina. His life is complicated by an inept, but well-meaning deputy, Barney Fife (Don Knotts), a spinster aunt and housekeeper, Aunt Bee (Frances Bavier), and a precocious young son, Opie (Ron Howard). Local ne'er-do-wells, bumbling pals, and temperamental girlfriends further complicate his life. The series never placed lower than seventh in the Nielsen ratings and ended its final season at number one. I have all of the remaining episodes bookmarked, so when the library is done it will include the complete series. This library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

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

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

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

      4/2/16 - I had fallen a bit behind this week because I took a delivery of firewood on Thursday and have spent the last couple of days stacking it to season. Anyway, tonight I added Trapped, The Martyr, The Bitter Choice, Into the Night and Outpost at Home to the General Electric Theater library. General Electric Theater was an American anthology series hosted by Ronald Reagan that was broadcast on CBS radio and television. The series was sponsored by General Electric's Department of Public Relations. The television version of the program was broadcast from February 1, 1953, until May 27, 1962. Each of the estimated 209 television episodes was an adaptation of a novel, short story, play, film, or magazine fiction. An exception was the 1954 episode "Music for Christmas", which featured choral director Fred Waring and his group The Pennsylvanians performing Christmas music. On September 26, 1954, Ronald Reagan debuted as the only host of the program. GE added a host to provide continuity in the anthology format. This library is located in the Television Drama Catalog.

      3/29/16 - I'm a little short on time today because I have a doctor's appointment, so I created a new Johnny Ringo Library with only ten episodes to start. Johnny Ringo (1959-1960) was an American Western television series starring Don Durant that aired on CBS. It is loosely based on the life of the notorious gunfighter and outlaw Johnny Ringo, also known as John Peters Ringo or John B. Ringgold, who tangled with Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, and Buckskin Franklin Leslie. This fictional account imagines that Ringo put aside his gunfighting ways to become the 27-year-old sheriff of fictitious Velardi in the Arizona Territory. Ringo has two deputies: William Charles, Jr., or Cully, played by Mark Goddard and Case Thomas, portrayed by Terence De Marney, who is also a storekeeper and formerly the town drunk. Case's daughter, Laura Thomas, played by Karen Sharpe, is Ringo's girlfriend in the series. Michael Hinn appeared in nine episodes as George Haig. The new library is located in the Western Shows Catalog. Update 11:15 PM: My medical procedure went fine and didn't take as long as I expected, so I found myself with some extra time tonight and decided to finish the library with all twenty-nine episodes that are currently available of the series.

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

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

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

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

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

      Tonight I restored some of my Adventures in Paradise library, including twenty episodes from Season 1 and 2. This is only a small portion of the original library, but it's a start. Adventures in Paradise was an American television series created by James Michener which ran on ABC from 1959 until 1962, starring Gardner McKay as Adam Troy, the captain of the schooner Tiki III, which sailed the South Pacific looking for passengers and adventure. USA Network aired reruns of this series between 1984 and 1988. The plots deal with the romantic and detective adventures of Korean War veteran Troy. The supporting cast, varying from season to season, features George Tobias, Guy Stockwell, and Linda Lawson. This library is located on the Action and Adventure Catalog.

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

      3/22/16 - Today I made a truly amazing discovery when I found most of the Season 1 through Season 5 episodes of Stargate SG-1 series! I have posted Season 1 so far. This is one of my favorite shows, in fact I am currently watching it on Hulu for the second time! I originally binge-watched it on NetFlix - sometimes watching 4 or 5 episodes in a sitting, about 4 years ago. I recently found it on Hulu and started watching it again, one at a time. Unfortunately the Hulu version isn't available to post because it can only be watched with a Hulu subscription. I found these while searching for the original Stargate movie on Daily Motion, a Southeast-Asian based video streaming service that doesn't monitor copyrights nearly as studiously as YouTube, for instance. I would still recommend watching these soon, just in case they vanish like the wind... Stargate SG-1 was an adventure and military science fiction television series produced by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. The show, created by Brad Wright and Jonathan Glassner, is based on the 1994 science fiction film Stargate by Dean Devlin and Roland Emmerich. SG-1 is an elite United States Air Force special operations team, one of about 20 teams from Earth who explore the galaxy and defend against alien threats. The new library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog. I also founnd episodes of the two other Stargate franchise programs (Stargate Atlantis, and Stargate Universe) and will start posting them soon. By the way, several of these episodes are segmented into 2 or 3 parts. Daily Motion doesn't allow users to create playlists from other user's videos, so I have provided a link to the next part of a segmented video at the bottom left of the player window.

      3/21/16 - Tonight I added eighteen episodes to the Perry Mason Library, thus completing Season 1 of the series. In 1956, Raymond Burr auditioned for the role of District Attorney Hamilton Burger in Perry Mason, a new courtroom drama based on the highly successful novels written and created by Erle Stanley Gardner that was to air on CBS. The producers of the show allowed Burr to try for the title role and when Gardner, who was present at the audition, saw him he declared, "He is Perry Mason." Burr eventually won the role with which he was most closely identified. I have lots of these episodes bookmarked so many more to come! This library can be found in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog, and also in the Raymond Burr Catalog, which is also located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog, plus the Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

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

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

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

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

      3/16/16 - Tonight I added fifteen episodes to the Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet library. The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet was an American sitcom, airing on ABC from October 3, 1952, through March 26, 1966, starring the real-life Nelson family. After a long run on radio, the show was brought to television, where it continued its success, initially running simultaneously on radio and television. The series stars Ozzie Nelson and his wife, singer Harriet Nelson (née Snyder, professionally Hilliard), and their young sons, David and Eric "Ricky" Nelson. 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:

      Fraternity Room

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

      3/14/16 - Today I went back through the Andy Griffith Show Library and started filling in the missing episodes from Seasons 2 through 4 (eighteen episodes). Ths completes the first 4 Seasons. I have all of the remaining episodes bookmarked, so when the library is done it will include the complete series. The Andy Griffith Show was an American sitcom first televised on CBS between October 3, 1960 and April 1, 1968. The show, a semi-spin-off from an episode of The Danny Thomas Show, stars Andy Griffith, who portrays the widowed sheriff of the fictional small community of Mayberry, North Carolina. His life is complicated by an inept, but well-meaning deputy, Barney Fife (Don Knotts), a spinster aunt and housekeeper, Aunt Bee (Frances Bavier), and a precocious young son, Opie (Ron Howard). Local ne'er-do-wells, bumbling pals, and temperamental girlfriends further complicate his life. The series never placed lower than seventh in the Nielsen ratings and ended its final season at number one.

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

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

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

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

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

      3/5/16 - Today I was able to restore my Sherlock Holmes - BBC TV Series' libraries with all forty episodes from the combined 4 iterations of the TV series from 1984 until 1994, plus two Masterpiece Theater productions from 1988 - all of which starred Jeremy Brett as the master sleuth. Sherlock Holmes is the name given to the TV series of Sherlock Holmes adaptations produced by British television company ITV Granada between 1984 and 1994, with the first two series bearing the title The Adventures Of Sherlock Holmes on screen and being followed by subsequent sub-series bearing the titles of the other short story collections by Arthur Conan Doyle. The series was broadcast on the ITV network in the UK and starred Jeremy Brett as the famous detective. His portrayal remains very popular and is accepted by some as the definitive on-screen version of Sherlock Holmes. This library is located in the Sherlock Holmes Catalog , located in the Mystery & Crime Drama, the Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. I also I added the last eighteen episode of Season 2 to the Father Knows Best library. The popular radio show came to life in this hit sitcom about a wise family man, Jim Anderson, played by Robert Young, his common-sense wife Margaret and their children Betty, Bud and Kathy. Whenever the kids need advice on anything at all, they can always turn to their father, because father knows best. This library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas catalog. The entire series is available on Hulu, so many more to come.

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

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

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

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

      2/28/16 - Tonight (while watching the Oscars) I started restoring my Phil Silvers Show Library with eighteen episodes so far. I had a pretty extensive collection of these shows at one time - almost the entire series, but they were taken down off YouTube. In fact as I remember it, this was one of the first libraries I lost way back when. I found a cache of 33 episodes on the Internet Archive, so I have hopes that these will survive. The Phil Silvers Show, originally titled You'll Never Get Rich, was a sitcom which ran on CBS from 1955 to 1959 for 142 episodes, plus a 1959 special. The series starred Phil Silvers as Master Sergeant Ernest G. Bilko of the United States Army. The series was created and largely written by Nat Hiken, and won three consecutive Emmy Awards for Best Comedy Series. The show is sometimes titled Sergeant Bilko or simply Bilko in reruns, and is very often referred to by these names, both on-screen and by viewers. The show's success transformed Silvers from a journeyman comedian into a star, and writer-producer Hiken from a highly regarded behind-the-scenes comedy writer into a publicly recognized creator. I should mention that unfortunately some of these epidoes have had their opening credits edited out rather sloppily. In some cases they have managed to lop off the the first few seconds of the episode. It doesn't really ruin the experience, but it is kind of annoying. library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog. More to come.

      2/26/16 - Today I added all of the available episodes of Season 4 (21 episode) to the Andy Griffith Show Library. The last episode of this Season is the spin-off Pilot for the Gomer Pyle U.S.M.C. series. The Andy Griffith Show was an American sitcom first televised on CBS between October 3, 1960 and April 1, 1968. The show, a semi-spin-off from an episode of The Danny Thomas Show, stars Andy Griffith, who portrays the widowed sheriff of the fictional small community of Mayberry, North Carolina. His life is complicated by an inept, but well-meaning deputy, Barney Fife (Don Knotts), a spinster aunt and housekeeper, Aunt Bee (Frances Bavier), and a precocious young son, Opie (Ron Howard). Local ne'er-do-wells, bumbling pals, and temperamental girlfriends further complicate his life. The series never placed lower than seventh in the Nielsen ratings and ended its final season at number one. I have recently found a large number of episodes from this series on DailyMotion, so many more to come. This library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. Four more seasons to go.

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

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

      2/22/16 - This afternoon I added four episodes to the Adventures of Jim Bowie library. We now have the first sixteen episodes of the 76 episode series. Hope to find more. The Adventures of Jim Bowie is an American Western television series that aired on ABC from 1956 to 1958. The series starred Scott Forbes as the real-life adventurer, Jim Bowie. The series initially portrayed Bowie as an outdoors-man, riding his horse through the wilderness near his home in Opelousas where he would stumble across someone needing his assistance. He was aided by his ever-present weapon the Bowie Knife, something he designed in the first episode - The Birth of the Blade. Although Bowie used the blade quite a bit in early episodes, its prominence was downplayed as the show went on. Gradually the series shifted from the country to the city, having Bowie instead spend the majority of his time in New Orleans (beginning in Episode 15). He was frequently shown looking to invest his money in real estate, or coming to the aid of someone who had been swindled. Story lines focused on the exploits of Bowie before he moved to Texas (then part of Mexico), and his death at the Alamo in 1836. During the series' two season run, Bowie encountered many historical figures of the era, such as President Andrew Jackson, Jefferson Davis, John James Audubon, Sam Houston, and Davy Crockett. The library is available in the Western Shows and the Historical Drama Catalogs.

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

      2/19/16 - Late last night I added three episodes to the Ozzie and Harriet library, and then went through the library systematically and added Plot Summaries and in a few cases, Season and Episode information. This is the first large series library I put together back when I first built the site - there are 154 episodes so far. The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet was an American sitcom, airing on ABC from October 3, 1952 through March 26, 1966, starring the real life Nelson family. The series starred Ozzie Nelson and his wife, singer Harriet Nelson (née Hilliard), and their young sons, David and Eric "Ricky" Nelson. I grew up watching this, and watching the Nelson boys grow up. When Ricky became a singing star, it was one of the things that inspired my own pursuit of a musical career. The added episodes are all on the last page of the library: Wife in the Office, Rick's Raise and Trip Trap. The library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

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

      2/18/16 - Today I added fourteen episodes to the Lost in Space library, which completes Season 1. Lost in Space was an American science fiction television series, following the adventures of a family of pioneering space colonists whose ship goes off course. It was created and produced by Irwin Allen, filmed by 20th Century Fox Television, and broadcast on CBS. The show ran for three seasons, with 83 episodes airing between 1965 to 1968. The first television season was filmed in black and white, with the second and third seasons filmed in color. The entire series is available on Hulu, so many more to come. This library is found in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog.

      2/17/16 - Today I added Season 4 (thirty-nine episodes) to the The Donna Reed Show library. The Donna Reed Show was an American situation comedy starring Donna Reed as the middle-class housewife Donna Stone. Carl Betz co-stars as her pediatrician husband Dr. Alex Stone, and Shelley Fabares and Paul Petersen as their teenage children, Mary and Jeff. The show originally aired on ABC from September 24, 1958 to March 19, 1966. The library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

      2/16/16 - Today I restored my Perry Mason Library with twenty episodes from the Season 1. This increases the size of the former library by a factor of 10! In 1956, Raymond Burr auditioned for the role of District Attorney Hamilton Burger in Perry Mason, a new courtroom drama based on the highly successful novels written and created by Erle Stanley Gardner that was to air on CBS. The producers of the show allowed Burr to try for the title role and when Gardner, who was present at the audition, saw him he declared, "He is Perry Mason." Burr eventually won the role with which he was most closely identified. I have anpther 49 of these episodes bookmarked so many more to come! The restored library can be found in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog, and also in the Raymond Burr Catalog, which is also located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog, plus the Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      2/15/19 - Today I added fourteen episodes to Season 3 of the Andy Griffith Show Library. The Andy Griffith Show was an American sitcom first televised on CBS between October 3, 1960 and April 1, 1968. The show, a semi-spin-off from an episode of The Danny Thomas Show, stars Andy Griffith, who portrays the widowed sheriff of the fictional small community of Mayberry, North Carolina. His life is complicated by an inept, but well-meaning deputy, Barney Fife (Don Knotts), a spinster aunt and housekeeper, Aunt Bee (Frances Bavier), and a precocious young son, Opie (Ron Howard). Local ne'er-do-wells, bumbling pals, and temperamental girlfriends further complicate his life. The series never placed lower than seventh in the Nielsen ratings and ended its final season at number one. I have recently found a large number of episodes from this series on DailyMotion, so many more to come. This library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog. Five more seasons to go. The added videos are:

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

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

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

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

      2/8/16 - Today I added The Eye of the Beholder, A Child Is Born, Mender McClure, No Hiding Place and Blaze of Glory to the General Electric Theater library. General Electric Theater was an American anthology series hosted by Ronald Reagan that was broadcast on CBS radio and television. The series was sponsored by General Electric's Department of Public Relations. The television version of the program was broadcast from February 1, 1953, until May 27, 1962. Each of the estimated 209 television episodes was an adaptation of a novel, short story, play, film, or magazine fiction. An exception was the 1954 episode "Music for Christmas", which featured choral director Fred Waring and his group The Pennsylvanians performing Christmas music. On September 26, 1954, Ronald Reagan debuted as the only host of the program. GE added a host to provide continuity in the anthology format. This library is located in the Television Drama Catalog.

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

      2/6/16 - Today I added seventeen more episodes of Season 2 to the Andy Griffith Show Library. The Andy Griffith Show was an American sitcom first televised on CBS between October 3, 1960 and April 1, 1968. The show, a semi-spin-off from an episode of The Danny Thomas Show, stars Andy Griffith, who portrays the widowed sheriff of the fictional small community of Mayberry, North Carolina. His life is complicated by an inept, but well-meaning deputy, Barney Fife (Don Knotts), a spinster aunt and housekeeper, Aunt Bee (Frances Bavier), and a precocious young son, Opie (Ron Howard). Local ne'er-do-wells, bumbling pals, and temperamental girlfriends further complicate his life. The series never placed lower than seventh in the Nielsen ratings and ended its final season at number one. I have recently found a large number of episodes from this series on DailyMotion, so many more to come. This library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog. The added videos are all of the Season 2 episodes found on page 3 of the library.

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

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

      2/3/16 - Today I created a new Taxi Library with the seventeen episodes from Season 1 available from Hulu (sorry about the commercials). Taxi was an American sitcom that originally aired from 1978 to 1982 on ABC and from 1982 to 1983 on NBC. The series—which won 18 Emmy Awards, including three for Outstanding Comedy Series—focuses on the everyday lives of a handful of New York City taxi drivers and their abusive dispatcher. The show focuses on the employees of the fictional Sunshine Cab Company, and its principal setting is the company's fleet garage in Manhattan. Among the drivers, only Alex Rieger, who is disillusioned with life, considers cab driving his profession. The others view it as a temporary job. Elaine Nardo is a single mother working as a receptionist at an art gallery. Tony Banta is a boxer with a losing record. Bobby Wheeler is a struggling actor. All take pity on "Reverend Jim" Ignatowski, an aging hippie minister, who is burnt out from drugs, so they help him become a cabbie. The characters also included Latka Gravas, their innocent, wide-eyed mechanic from an unnamed foreign country, and Louie De Palma, the despotic dispatcher. There are 75 episodes available on Hulu (114 in the complete series) so many more to come. The new library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog.

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

      2/1/16 - Today I added Season 5 (twenty-six episodes) to the Mister Ed Library. The Mister Ed show concept was derived from a series of short stories by children's author Walter R. Brooks, which began with The Talking Horse in the September 18, 1937, issue of Liberty magazine. Brooks is otherwise best known for the Freddy the Pig series of children's novels, which likewise featured talking animals that interact with humans. The show's concept resembles that of the Francis the Talking Mule movies in which an equine title character talks, but only to one person, thus causing a variety of opportunities and frustrations. Comedian George Burns financed the original pilot for Mr Ed which was shot at his McCadden Studio in Hollywood. Scott McKay played Wilbur. Jack Benny was also involved behind the scenes. Unable to sell the show to a network, the producer decided to sell the show into syndication first. He managed to get single sponsor identification for the program on over 100 stations. The show was recast with Alan Young in the lead. Production began in November 1960. The first 26 episodes were well received enough for the show to be picked up by CBS. I have the entire series bookmarked, so one more seasons to go. This library is located in the Alan Young Catalog via the Funny Guys Catalog

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

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

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

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

      1/23/16 - Today I added the first eleven episodes of Season 2 to the Andy Griffith Show Library. The Andy Griffith Show was an American sitcom first televised on CBS between October 3, 1960 and April 1, 1968. The show, a semi-spin-off from an episode of The Danny Thomas Show, stars Andy Griffith, who portrays the widowed sheriff of the fictional small community of Mayberry, North Carolina. His life is complicated by an inept, but well-meaning deputy, Barney Fife (Don Knotts), a spinster aunt and housekeeper, Aunt Bee (Frances Bavier), and a precocious young son, Opie (Ron Howard). Local ne'er-do-wells, bumbling pals, and temperamental girlfriends further complicate his life. The series never placed lower than seventh in the Nielsen ratings and ended its final season at number one. I have recently found a large number of episodes from this series on DailyMotion, so many more to come. This library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog. I also added two episodes, Confessions of a Nervous Man (1954) and The Remarkable Incident at Carson Corners (1954) (from Hulu) to the Studio One library. Studio One was an American radio–television anthology drama series. Sponsored by Westinghouse Electric Corporation, the television series was seen on CBS (which Westinghouse owned between 1995 and 2000), from 1948 through 1958, under several variant titles: Studio One Summer Theatre, Studio One in Hollywood, Summer Theatre, Westinghouse Studio One and Westinghouse Summer Theatre. It was telecast in black-and-white only. Offering a wide range of dramas, Studio One received Emmy nominations every year from 1950 to 1958. The series staged some notable and memorable teleplays among its 467 episodes. Some created such an impact they were adapted into theatrical films. This library is located in the Television Drama Catalog.

      1/22/16 - Today I added ten more episodes to the Make Room for Daddy library. The Danny Thomas Show (known as Make Room for Daddy during the first three seasons) is an American sitcom which ran from 1953 to 1957 on ABC and from 1957 to 1964 on CBS. A revival series known as Make Room for Granddaddy aired on ABC from 1970 to 1971. Episodes regularly featured music as part of the plot by Danny Thomas, guest stars and occasionally by other cast members. This library is located in the Danny Thomas Catalog which can be accessed via the Funny Guys Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. The added episodes are:

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

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

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

      1/19/16 - Today I read of the passing of Noreen Corcoran, who played the teenaged girl, Kelly, on the Bachelor Father TV series. I decided to look for some episodes to add too the library and was able to find Bentley and the P.T.A., The Girl Scouts, The Lady Doctor, A Date, Birthday Gift and Blossom Comes to Visit. This was the first time I have added episodes since I built the library in 2010. Bachelor Father was an American sitcom starring John Forsythe, Noreen Corcoran and Sammee Tong. The series first premiered on CBS in September 1957 before moving to NBC for the third season in 1959. The series' fifth and final season aired on ABC for the rest of the show's run.

This library is located in the Family Comedies and Drama Catalog.

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

      1/17/16 - Today I added nineteen more episodes to the Andy Griffith Show Library. The added episodes are Christmas Story and all of the remaining episodes of Season 1 starting with Those Gossipin' Men. Season 1 is now complete. The Andy Griffith Show was an American sitcom first televised on CBS between October 3, 1960 and April 1, 1968. The show, a semi-spin-off from an episode of The Danny Thomas Show, stars Andy Griffith, who portrays the widowed sheriff of the fictional small community of Mayberry, North Carolina. His life is complicated by an inept, but well-meaning deputy, Barney Fife (Don Knotts), a spinster aunt and housekeeper, Aunt Bee (Frances Bavier), and a precocious young son, Opie (Ron Howard). Local ne'er-do-wells, bumbling pals, and temperamental girlfriends further complicate his life. Regarding the time-period of the show, Griffith said in a Today Show interview: "Well, though we never said it, and though it was shot in the 1960s, it had a feeling of the 1930s. It was when we were doing it, of a time gone by." The series never placed lower than seventh in the Nielsen ratings and ended its final season at number one. I have recently found a large number of episodes from this series on the Internet Archive and DailyMotion, so many more to come. This library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog.

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

Located in the Jackie Cooper Cataog which is located in the Funny Guys Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

      1/5/16 - Today I added ten episodes to the Make Room for Daddy library. This is the first time I have added episodes since the library was created in 2010, and these ten episodes doubles the size of the library and are the first 10 episodes in the listings. The Danny Thomas Show (known as Make Room for Daddy during the first three seasons) is an American sitcom which ran from 1953 to 1957 on ABC and from 1957 to 1964 on CBS. A revival series known as Make Room for Granddaddy aired on ABC from 1970 to 1971. Episodes regularly featured music as part of the plot by Danny Thomas, guest stars and occasionally by other cast members. I always thought of this show as being a slightly altered version of I Love Lucy. Danny Williams entertained at the Copa Club (where Ricky Ricardo also worked). and his family were immigrants from Lebanon (as opposed to Cuba - where Ricky came from). Also the show was produced by Desilu Studios. This library os located in the Danny Thomas Catalog which can be accessed via the Funny Guys Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      1/4/16 - Today I added twenty-five episodes to the My Favorite Martian Library which brings us to Season 2, Episode 15. These are from Hulu (sorry about the commercials) and the entire series, minus three episodes, are there so many more to come! My Favorite Martian (1963–1966) was an American television sitcom that aired on CBS for 107 episodes. The show starred Ray Walston as the Martian, and Bill Bixby as Tim O'Hara. A human-looking extraterrestrial in a one-man spaceship crash-lands near Los Angeles. The ship's pilot is, in fact, an anthropologist from Mars and is now stranded on Earth. The new library is located in the Funny Guys and the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalogs.

      1/3/16 - Tonight I added seventeen episodes to the Lone Ranger TV Show library. Hulu has all but 5 episodes of the entire series available, so many more to come. The Lone Ranger was a TV show that aired for eight seasons, from 1949 to 1957, and starred Clayton Moore as the Lone Ranger and Jay Silverheels as Tonto. Only five of the eight seasons had new episodes. It was the ABC television network's first big hit of the early 1950s. Moore's tenure as the Ranger is probably the best-known treatment of the franchise. Moore was replaced in the third season by John Hart, but he returned for the final two seasons. The fifth and final season was the only one shot in color. A total of 221 episodes were made. Ths library is located in the Lone Ranger Catalog, which can be found in the Western Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

The series was produced and sometimes directed by Charles Marquis Warren, who also produced early episodes of Gunsmoke. This was Eastwood's stepping stone to fame and fortune as he became one of the few TV stars to successfully make the move into starring roles in movies. I have the entire series bookmarked, so many more to come! This library is located in the Western Shows Catalog.

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

The series was broadcast on CBS from October 9, 1953 to July 15, 1955, and starrd Leo G. Carroll in the title role. It finished at #24 in the Nielsen ratings for the 1954-1955 season.

They live in a Los Angeles house they bought from the estate of a young couple, George and Marion Kerby, who died after being swept away by an avalanche. A St. Bernard, Neil, who attempted to rescue them also died with them. Topper discovers his new home is haunted by the former occupants as well as Neil. Strangely, he is the only one able to see or hear them. Neil, the St. Bernard, loves martinis and a running gag is the invisible dog lapping up the drink.

      Legacy
      Topper Goes West
      Sweepstakes
      George's Old Flame

      12/31/15 - Today I added fifteen episodes to the Andy Griffith Show Library. While I was at it I decided to arrange the library into it's proper order and added Season, Episode and plotline information to the player pages. This library was one of the first I built during the first few weeks after I created the site - and this is the first time I have added any new episodes to the collection. The added episodes are all of the Season 1 shows plus Man in a Hurry from Season 3. The Andy Griffith Show is an American sitcom first televised on CBS between October 3, 1960 and April 1, 1968. The show, a semi-spin-off from an episode of The Danny Thomas Show, stars Andy Griffith, who portrays the widowed sheriff of the fictional small community of Mayberry, North Carolina. His life is complicated by an inept, but well-meaning deputy, Barney Fife (Don Knotts), a spinster aunt and housekeeper, Aunt Bee (Frances Bavier), and a precocious young son, Opie (Ron Howard). Local ne'er-do-wells, bumbling pals, and temperamental girlfriends further complicate his life. Regarding the time-period of the show, Griffith said in a Today Show interview: "Well, though we never said it, and though it was shot in the 1960s, it had a feeling of the 1930s. It was when we were doing it, of a time gone by." The series never placed lower than seventh in the Nielsen ratings and ended its final season at number one. This library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog.

      12/30/15 - Today I was able to restore a large portion (fourteen episodes) of my Gale Storm Show Library. This library has had it's ups and downs since I built the original collection about 2 years ago. The original library had 27 episodes, then I lost most of those. This expansion takes it from 6 episodes to 22. These are all from the Internet Archive, so I have hopes that they will last. The Gale Storm Show (aka Oh Susanna) (1956-1960) was an American sitcom starring Gale Storm. The series, based on a cruise director, Susanna Pomeroy, on a ship travelling around the world, premiered on September 29, 1956, and ran until 1960 for 143 half-hour black-and-white episodes, initially on CBS and in its last year on ABC. Co-star, Zazu Pitts played Susanna's friend and ship's hairdresser, "Nugey". The series was aired under the title Oh, Susanna in syndication. This library is located in the Gale Storm Catalog, which is located in the Whacky Dames Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      12/29/2015 - This morning I added a Ghost of Zorro (1949) library to my Zorro Theatrical Seriels Catalog. Actually, the first Theatrical Serial I have posted to the site since the very early days of its existance. This is the fourth Zorro serial to appear in this particular catalog, which is located in the Theatrical Serials Catalog, available via the Cartoons, Short Format Films and Unsold Pilots Catalog and also the Zorro Catalog. A movie serial or film serial, was a short subject originally shown in movie theaters in conjunction with a feature film, and derived from pulp magazine serialized fiction. Also known as "chapter plays," they were extended motion pictures broken into a number of segments or parts. Each chapter was screened at a movie theater for one week, and ended with a cliffhanger, in which characters found themselves in perilous situations with little apparent chance of escape. Viewers had to return each week to see the cliffhangers resolved and to follow the continuing story. Movie serials were especially popular with children, and for many youths in the first half of the 20th century a typical Saturday at the movies included at least one chapter of a serial, along with animated cartoons, newsreels, and two feature films. By the way, this serial stars Clayton Moore, who was famous for portraying another masked hero in movies and on TV as The Lone Ranger. Also - I found this serial on DailyMotion, so on a whim I decided to search there for the Superman Serial, and also found that! So I have restored that library as well. It had vanished from the Internet Archive soon after I posted the original library, but now can be found agaon in all of the places mentoned above (except for the Zorro Catalog) as well as the Superman Catalog.

      12/27/15 - Tonight was able to do something I have been trying to get done for a while - I built a Tonight Show with Johnny Carson library. Up until now I had never found any full episodes of the show that wouldn't disappear almost immediately, so I had kind of given up on the idea. But today I discovered an "Official" Johnny Carson YouTube channel and gleaned sixteen complete episodes from the the series spannng the final 20 years of it's run and including the final program. John William "Johnny" Carson (October 23, 1925 – January 23, 2005) was an American television host, comedian, writer, producer, actor, and musician, best known for his thirty years as host of The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. Although his show was already successful by the end of the 1960s, during the 1970s Carson became an American icon and remained so even after his retirement in 1992. The library is arranged chronologically and identified by the guest(s) names. It is located in the Funny Guys Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. Plotline: It's 1865 and the telegraph is heading west. George Crane, wanting to keep law and order out of his territory, is out to stop the construction. One of the main engineers on the job is Ken Mason, the grandson of the original Zorro. As Crane hires his men to stop the work, Mason finds himself in the legendary role his originated.

      12/26/15 - This is a "good news and bad news" post. The bad news is not really "news" at all, because I announced quite a while ago that my I Love Lucy library, which was all from Hulu, was set to expire today - and it did. However, the good news is that I found a cache of I Love Lucy episodes on Daily Motion and they don't seem to be going anywhere. The kicker is that although these are all from Seasons 1 and 2 of the series, in fact, there are many episodes from those first two seasons that are new too the library because they weren't included in the Hulu collection. There are 32 new episodes to be precise! I Love Lucy (1951–1957) was a landmark American television sitcom starring Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, Vivian Vance, and William Frawley. The black-and-white series originally ran on CBS. After the series ended in 1957 a modified version continued for three more seasons with 13 one-hour specials, running from 1957 to 1960, known eventually as The Lucy–Desi Comedy Hour.

      12/23/15 - Today I added eighteen episodes to the Sea Hunt library, which completes the first Season. Sea Hunt was an American action adventure television series that aired in syndication from 1958 to 1961 and was popular in syndication for decades afterwards. The series originally aired for four seasons, with 155 episodes produced. It starred Lloyd Bridges. Mike Nelson (Bridges) is a free-lance scuba diver who has various adventures. Nelson, a former U.S. Navy frogman (having left the service about four years before the series began), is a well-known expert on diving who is often called on for difficult or dangerous projects.

In the pilot episode, Mike rescues a downed Navy pilot from his sunken jet. This library is available in the Lloyd Bridges and the Action and Adventure Catalogs. I have the entire series bookmarked. so many more to come!

      12/22/15 - Today I was able to restore most of The Fugitive Library, with one hundred and nine of the one hundred and twenty episodes that make up the full series. 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 David Janssen Catalog, which can be found in the Mystery & Crime Drama, Feature Films, Television Drama Catalogs, and the Catalog of Stars.

      12/21/15 - Today I added eleven episodes (from Hulu) to the Studio One library, including:

      Wuthering Heights (1950)
      Pontius Pilate (1952)
      Incident at Carson Corners (1953)

      Studio One was an American radio–television anthology drama series, created in 1947 by Canadian director Fletcher Markle, who came to CBS from the CBC. In 1948, Markle made a leap from radio to television. Sponsored by Westinghouse Electric Corporation, the television series was seen on CBS (which Westinghouse owned between 1995 and 2000), from 1948 through 1958, under several variant titles: Studio One Summer Theatre, Studio One in Hollywood, Summer Theatre, Westinghouse Studio One and Westinghouse Summer Theatre. It was telecast in black-and-white only. Offering a wide range of dramas, Studio One received Emmy nominations every year from 1950 to 1958. The series staged some notable and memorable teleplays among its 467 episodes. Some created such an impact they were adapted into theatrical films. This library is located in the Television Drama Catalog.

      12/20/2015 - Tonight I added the first nineteen episodes to Season 5 of the The Twilight Zone library. This is the last season of the original series - only 17 more episodes to go. 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. This library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog.

      12/19/2015 - Today I created a new Dick Cavett Show Library at the suggestion of my friend, Dennis Carter, with twenty-nine episodes thus far. The late-night talk show that ran from December 29, 1969 to January 1, 1975 ran opposite NBC's The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. Cavett took the time slot over from Joey Bishop. While Cavett and Carson shared many of the same guests, Cavett was receptive to rock and roll artists to a degree unusual at the time, as well as authors, politicians, and other personalities outside the entertainment field. The wide variety of guests, combined with Cavett's literate and intelligent approach to comedy, appealed to a significant enough number of viewers to keep the show running for several years despite the competition from Carson's show. This library will also contain a number of episodes from the later versions of the show that ran until 1996. The new library can be found in the Funny Guys and the News/Documentary (Reality) Programs Catalogs.

      12/18/15 - Tonight I restored my Steptoe and Son Library with the first 3 Seasons (20 episodes) to start. Steptoe and Son was a classic 1960s British comedy series about a middle aged man and his elderly father who run an unsuccessful 'rag and bone' business (collecting and selling junk). Harold (the son) wants to better himself but his father always seems to ruin things, sometimes accidentally and other times deliberately. The two live in poverty and the father has some disgusting habits which continue to embarrass the son. The series was later adapted in the US as Sanford & Son, starring Redd Fox and Demond Wilson. I originally built this library almost exactly a year ago and then failed to check it out regularly, so I am not sure how long it was after the library disappeared before I noticd the problem. Most of the series (56 of 57 episodes) is available and bookmarked, so many more to come. The new libary is located in both the Funny Guys and the Family Comedies and Drama Catalogs.

      12/16/15 - Today I added five episodes to the Four Star Playhouse library, including Man of the World, Breakfast in Bed, Uncle Fred Flits, Safe Keeping, and Touch and Go. Four Star Playhouse (1952–1956) featured individual episodes consisting of everything from comedy to drama. The original premise was that Charles Boyer, Ida Lupino, David Niven, and Dick Powell would take turns starring in episodes. However, several other performers took the lead from time to time, including Ronald Colman and Joan Fontaine. In 1954, Billboard voted it the second best filmed network television drama series. This library is located in (where else), the Television Drama Catalog.

      12/14/15 - Today I finally completed my Fireball XL5 library with the last fifteen episodes. I started this library back in March and have always had the full series bookmarked - but since then I have been doing a lot of "housekeeping" - making changes to improve the over-all site, and I just forgot about it. Sorry! Fireball XL5 (1962-1963) was a science fiction themed children's television show following the missions of spaceship Fireball XL5, commanded by Colonel Steve Zodiac of the World Space Patrol. The show featured the Andersons' Supermarionation, a form of puppetry first introduced in Four Feather Falls (1960) and Supercar (1961) and used again in their subsequent productions such as Stingray, Thunderbirds and Captain Scarlet. THis show ran 39 episodes and I am pretty sure I have found all of them, so more to come. The new library is located in the Kid Shows the Action and Adventure, and the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalogs.

      12/11/15 - Today I added the episode Last of the Pony Express to the Range Rider Library. I also replaced about 23 episodes that were from YouTube, some of which had already vanished, with Internet Archive videos I recently discovered. The Range Rider is an American Western television series that aired in syndication. A single lost episode surfaced and was broadcast in 1959. The Range Rider was also broadcast on British television during the 1960s, and in Melbourne, Australia during the 1950s. Jock Mahoney, later star of CBS's Yancy Derringer, played the title character in seventy-nine black-and-white half-hour episodes, along with partner Dick West, played by Dick Jones, later star of the syndicated series Buffalo Bill Jr. The character had no name other than Range Rider. His reputation for fairness, fighting ability, and accuracy with his guns was known far and wide, even by Indians. Mahoney towered over Jones, conveying the idea that Dick West was a youth rather than a full-grown adult. This library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Western Shows Catalogs.

      12/10/15 - Today I restored my I, Claudius library. I originally built this library back in 2013 from YouTube videos, which vanished almost as soon as I got the library up. I kind of forgot about it until I stumbled across it on Hulu (sorry about the commercials). Interestingly, these are the same twelve episodes of this 13 episode series, as the ones I found previously. Unfortunately, Episode 2 - Family Affairs, is missing also from this collection. If I can find it I will add it later. I, Claudius was a 1976 BBC Television adaptation of Robert Graves's I, Claudius and Claudius the God. Written by Jack Pulman, it proved one of the corporation's most successful drama serials of all time. The history of the Roman Empire as experienced by one of its rulers. The library is available in the Historical Drama Catalog.

      12/8/15 - Late last night I restored my Kraft Suspense Theatre Library. I had lost it back in July, shortly after adding a few episodes too it. In the restoration I was able to find all of the episodes that had disappeared and added three: Shadow of a Man, Connery's Hands and Jungle of Fear. Not to be confused with the 1950s mystery/drama series called Suspense, Kraft Suspense Theatre was a late entry into the drama anthology genre and was first telecast on NBC beginning in 1963. Sponsored by Kraft Foods, it was seen three weeks out of every four and was pre-empted for Perry Como's Kraft Music Hall specials once monthly. Later syndicated under the title Crisis, it was one of the few suspense series telecast in color at the time. Because of the diverse nature of the storylines, this library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror, the Television Drama and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

      12/7/15 - Today I added Season 4 (eighteen episodes) to the The Twilight Zone library. I have not been able to track down a definitive answer as to why Season 4 was so much shorter than the other seasons, but I assume it is because the show went to full hour episodes during that period, after being half-hour episodes for the previous 3 seasons. In Season 5 the show went back to the half-hour format and they produced 36 episodes to end the original series. 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. This library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog. I have the entire series bookmaked - so one more season to come. Also added two episodes to the Colgate Comedy Hour library. For those who may have watched all of the current library, the new additions are both from 1951 wth Jack Carter as the host of one and Bob Hope as the host of the other. Finally, I started restoring my Four Just Men Library with twelve episodes to start. The Four Just Men was a British 1959 Sapphire Films production for ITC Entertainment. It ran for one season of 39 half-hour monochrome episodes. The series features four men who first met during World War II. The men later reassembled and decided to fight for justice and against tyranny, using money set aside for the purpose by their late commanding officer. The series was loosely based on a novel by Edgar Wallace. Action and Adventure and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

      12/6/15 - Today I added two new libraries to the Abbott & Costello catalog. The Abbott & Costello LIVE library consists of seven of their most famous comedy routines as performed on live television, while the Abbott & Costello on the Colgate Comedy Hour library includes eighteen full episodes of the long running comedy series featuring Abbott & Costello as the hosts. Please note that I'm not sure if the dates on these episodes are valid - Hulu frequently screws up in this regard. It was obvious, for instance, that comparing the dates to the Season and Episode info from Hulu showed them to be not possible - identifying an episodes in 1952 to be a later season then one in 1953 was a dead give away... William "Bud" Abbott and Lou Costello (born Louis Francis Cristillo), were an American comedy duo whose work on stage, radio, film and television made them the most popular comedy team during the 1940s and 1950s. Their patter routine "Who's on First?" is considered one of the greatest comedy routines of all time, and set the framework for many of their best-known comedy bits.

      12/3/15 - Today I added fifteen episodes to the McHale's Navy Library, which completes Season 3. McHale's Navy (1962-1966) was a wacky military service comedy series set in the Pacific theatre of World War II (for the last season the setting changed to the European theater in Italy) and focused on the loony misfit crew of PT-73, wily boys with crazy antics, led by Lieutenant Commander Quinton McHale, played by Ernest Borgnine. I have the entire series bookmarked. One more Season to come. This library is located in the Funny Guys and the Action and Adventure Catalogs.

      12/2/15 - This morning I decided to partially restore my Rawhide library. So I rebuilt the first three pages of the library in about an hour. This includes Season 1 through Season 3. I am going to leave it that way for the time being, I have lost this library twice so far, so I am going to wait now and see what happens. 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. Also, I decided to fill out my Mary Tyler Moore Catalog a little by adding eighteen episodes to my The Dick Van Dyke Show library. This used to be a very small collection, consisting of a few episodes I had found on the Internet Archive when I first created the site. A few month ago I discovere that the the entire series is available on Hulu, but I never actually did anthing about it until now. The 18 added episodes completes Season 1 - I already had several Season 2 episodes. For those who may have already watched all of these - the added episodes are Episode 12-30 of Season 1. This library is available in the Family Comedies & Drama and Funny Guys Catalogs, and of course, can also be accessed via the Mary Tyler Moore Catalog.

      12/1/15 - Today I created a new Mary Tyler Moore Show library with the twenty-four episodes of Season 1. The first 3 Seasons are available on Hulu, so many more 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. Since this is the second show featuring Ms. Moore (The Dick Van Dyke Show is already on the site), I have also created a new Mary Tyler Moore Catalog to accomodate both shows. The new library is available in the Family Comedies & Drama and Funny Guys Catalogs. The Mary Tyler Moore Catalog is available in the Whacky Dames Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      11/30/15 - Today I added ten episodes to the New Adventures of Charlie Chan library. I had 11 episodes in the library at one time, but they were all from YouTube and got whittled down to 2 over time - so the 10 I just added increases the library by a factor of 5. The New Adventures of Charlie Chan was a British-American crime drama series that aired in the United States in syndicated television from June 1957, to 1958. The first five episodes were made by Vision Productions in the United States, before production switched to the United Kingdom under ITC Entertainment and Television Programs of America. The series, consisting of 39 half-hour monochrome episodes, followed the investigations of the fictional detective Charlie Chan, created by Earl Derr Biggers in 1925. The series followed the convention, established in the Charlie Chan movies, of having the Asian character Chan played by a Western actor (J. Carrol Naish) while his sons were played by actual Asians. The library is located in the Charlie Chan Catalog, which can be accessed via the Action and Adventure and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

      11/27/15 - In honor of Black Friday (a vile advertising gimmick that I thoughly disapprove of!) I decided to complete my I Spy library by adding all twenty-six episodes of Season 3. Part of I Spy's cache was the air of "Black-Ops" action about the show. Did you see what I did there? Black Friday - Black-Ops...? Anyway, I Spy (1965-1968) was an American television secret agent action adventure series about a pair of American agents facing espionage adventures with skill, humor and ingenuity, which aired on NBC. The show starred Robert Culp and Bill Cosby. The series broke ground for being the first American television drama to feature an African American actor (Bill Cosby) in one of the lead roles. Now as I have said before, I want to stress that, yes, I am aware of the controversey surrounding Bill Cosby, but whether you love him or hate him, this was a great series and Cosby was really good in it, as attested too by the several Emmy awards he received for his work. These are from Hulu, sorry about the commercials. The entire series is now available in the Action and Adventure and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

      I want to menton that over the last several days I have been installing a site-wide improvement to all of the relevent library pages. I am adding Season Listings links to each library page for any that have three or more pages in the library. This means that if you are on the first library page and want go to Season 5, for intance, there is a link that will take you directly there right under the player window. This improvement was suggested too me by a regular viewer of the site and I figured out that it would be fairly uncomplicated to implement, so I spent three afternoons working on it and believe I have finished the project.

      I also wanted to address the question I get more and more from viewers lately - "when are you going to put the site on ROKU?" The answer is that I just can't. I looked into the idea of delivering the Uncle Earl site as a ROKU channel a few years ago, and as much as I would love to have it out there to view on your TV set, it just isn't going to happen. The site houses more than 10,000 individual television episodes and feature films. I quit counting when it hit 10,000 over a year ago, so it is actually more then that. ROKU has a template that would allow me to convert all those player pages, but it would require that I rebuild the site from scratch, page by page. That would entail thousands of hours of HTML coding. I am just one person - I don't have a "corporate pool" of tech people to do this for me. I also object to the idea of sacrificing the whole Library/Catalog style navigation system that I built into the site. I get comments all the time from people who like the Uncle Earl site because it is so easy to find whatever you are looking for. My suggestion for how to watch the Uncle Earl site on TV is to get an HDMI cable. Most modern TVs and computers have HDMI capability. You hook up the cable and fire up your browser and set it to full screen and there it is on TV. You maintain control of the site through your computer (laptops are especially good for this purpose). I want to mention again that the Uncle Earl site is nicely compatible with tablets, phones and other digital devices. The only caveat is that Hulu videos are not available through the Uncle Earl site - you need the Hulu app and have to watch them on the Hulu site. You could use the Uncle Earl site Resource Links to send you too the videos, but that seems a little round-about. All other streaming service videos used on the Uncle Earl site work fine on your phone or tablet.

      11/25/15 - Today I added all thirty-two episodes of Season 2 to the Naked City library, which finishes the library until I find some from later Seasons that aren't part of the collection available on Hulu (sorry about those damn commercials!). Naked City (1958–1963) was a police drama series which aired on the ABC television network. It was inspired by the 1948 motion picture The Naked City and mimics its dramatic "semi-documentary" format. As in the film, each episode concluded with a narrator intoning the iconic line: "There are eight million stories in the naked city. This has been one of them." Stars: Harry Bellaver, Horace McMahon and Paul Burke. The first Season episodes are each 30 minutes long. During the second Season the programs expanded to an hour. This library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

      11/19/15 - Today I added twelve more episodes to the Sgt. Preston of the Yukon library. I will be surprised if I find any more - but I will keep looking. 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:

      Trouble at Hogback
      Bad Medicine
      Hidden Gold
      Last Chance
      The Assassins
      Golden Gift
      Cry Wolf
      Girl from Vancouver
      Wounded Moose
      Tobacco Smugglers
      The Williwaw
      Underground Ambush

      11/18/15 - Today I added five episodes to the Trouble with Father library. Trouble with Father (1950-1955), aka The Stu Erwin Show was an American sitcom which aired on ABC. The series starred Stuart Erwin and June Collyer. Ann Todd and Sheila James portrayed the couple's fictional daughters (Merry Anders replaced Ann Todd in the final season). One notable aspect of the show was that it featured African American actor Willie Best in a regular supporting role. Predating modern single-camera sitcoms, The Stu Erwin Show originally aired without a laugh track (one was added in its final season), and each episode was around 26 minutes long, without commercials. These have started showing up from time to time on the Internet Archive so probably more to come. This library is available in the Stuart Erwin Catalog. It can also be accessed via the the Family Comedies and Drama Catalog. The added episodes include:

      Stu's Holiday
      Father Picks a Queen
      Jackie Finds a Cause
      Jackie's First Date
      One Of The Boys

      11/17/15 - Today I added the last six episodes that I had bookmarked to the Annie Oakley Library. I thought I had completed the library a few weeks ago, with all of the existing episodes, but then found these - so now I am reserving judgement about whether or not I might find more of them. Annie Oakley (1954-1957) was an American Western television series that fictionalized the life of famous sharpshooter Annie Oakley. The show starred Gail Davis in the title role, and co-starred Brad Johnson as Deputy Sheriff Lofty Craig and Jimmy Hawkins, as Annie's brother, Tagg. This library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Western Shows Catalogs. Also today, I started rebuilding my Sea Hunt library. I used to have a pretty complete library on this series from Hulu - but then it expired from Hulu so I took the library down. Now I have discovered the entire series on YouTube, and the videos are over 2 years old and have had hundreds of thousands of views - so I decided to put up the first pafge of the old library and see what happens. Sea Hunt was an American action adventure television series that aired in syndication from 1958 to 1961 and was popular in syndication for decades afterwards. The series originally aired for four seasons, with 155 episodes produced. It starred Lloyd Bridges. Mike Nelson (Bridges) is a free-lance scuba diver who has various adventures. Nelson, a former U.S. Navy frogman (having left the service about four years before the series began), is a well-known expert on diving who is often called on for difficult or dangerous projects. Traveling on his boat the Argonaut, Nelson outmaneuvers villains, salvages everything from a bicycle to a nuclear missile, rescues children trapped in a flooded cave, and even a dog. In the pilot episode, Mike rescues a downed Navy pilot from his sunken jet. This library is available in the Lloyd Bridges and the Action and Adventure Catalogs. Many more to come (if these survive). Finally, late this evening I added eight episodes to the Howdy Doody Show library, including:

      10/1/51
      7/1/52
      12/1/52
      1/2/53
      5/26/53
      2/4/54
      6/7/54
      12/31/54

      11/16/15 - Today I added the first twenty episodes to the 1967 revival of 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). More to come!

      11/13/15 - Today it occurred too me that I needed to integrate all of those Hopalong Cassidy films into my Western Films library, so I added all seventeen of them and also four Western Films that I had previously bookmarked. While I was at it, I went through all of the current player pages for this library and fixed the Source File Return Links, as I have been doing steadily for the past several weeks to (eventually) every player page on the site. By the way, I have been making good progress with the project, having repaired the more than 8500 pages thus far. One of the new Western Films is a 1965 movie called Deadwood '76, starring Arch Hall Jr. and Jack Lester. What makes this interesting too me personally is that Jonny Bryant, who portrayed Hubert Steadman in the film is Jack Lester's son, John, who was a classmate of mine at Canoga Park High school (Class of 1966)! Other added films include: They Died with Thier Boots On (1941) and The True Jesse James (1957).

      11/12/15 - Following along with the Hopalong Cassidy theme, today I added seventeen films to the Hopalong Cassidy Film Library, so that we now have 23 films where we only had 6 presviously. This Library is available via the William Boyd Catalog, which can be found in the Action/Adventure Catalog, the Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. The new entries are all from Daily Motion and are broken up into 2 segments each. When you click on the name of a film in the library it takes you to Part 1, where you will find a link to Part 2 of that movie. There were 66 of these films made, so I hope to find more of them. For those who may have already watched all of the films in the current library, the added films are:

      Hidden Gold (1940)
      Stagecoach War (1940)
      Showdown (1940)
      Stick to Your Guns (1941)
      Wide Open Town (1941)
      Undercover Man (1942)
      Colt Comrades (1943)
      False Colors (1943)
      Leather Burners (1943)
      Riders of the Deadline (1943)
      Devil's Playground (1946)
      Unexpected Guest (1947)
      Dangerous Venture (1947)
      The Dead Don't Dream (1948)
      False Paradise (1948)
      Sinister Journey (1948)
      Borrowed Trouble (1948)

      11/11/15 - Tonight I added ten episodes to the Hopalong Cassidy TV Series, which increases my library by a factor of 10 (from 1 to 10 episodes :-). Hopalong Cassidy or Hop-along Cassidy is a fictional cowboy hero created in 1904 by the author Clarence E. Mulford, who wrote a series of popular short stories and many novels based on the character. In his early writings, Mulford portrayed the character as rude, dangerous, and rough-talking. From 1935, the character—as played by movie actor William Boyd in films adapted from Mulford's books—was transformed into a clean-cut hero. Sixty-six popular films appeared, only a few of which relied on Mulford's stories. Mulford later revised and republished his works to be more consistent with the character's screen persona. As portrayed on the screen, white-haired Bill "Hopalong" Cassidy was usually clad strikingly in black (including his hat, an exception to the western film stereotype that only villains wore black hats). He was reserved and well spoken, with a sense of fair play. He was often called upon to intercede when dishonest characters took advantage of honest citizens. "Hoppy" and his white horse, Topper, usually traveled through the west with two companions—one young and trouble-prone with a weakness for damsels in distress, the other older, comically awkward and outspoken. In the first film, Hopalong Cassidy (then spelled "Hop-along") got his name after being shot in the leg. Hopalong's "drink of choice" was the nonalcoholic sarsaparilla. The film series ended in 1944, but William Boyd wanted to keep it going. To do this, he gambled his future on Hopalong Cassidy, mortgaging most of what he owned to buy the character rights from Mulford and the backlog of movies from Sherman. Boyd resumed production in 1946, on lower budgets, and continued through 1948, when "B" westerns were being phased out. Boyd thought Hopalong Cassidy might have a future in television, spent $350,000 to obtain the rights to his old films, and approached the fledgling NBC network. The initial broadcasts were so successful that NBC could not wait for a television series to be produced and edited the feature films to broadcast length. On June 24, 1949, Hopalong Cassidy became the first network Western television series. This Library is available via the William Boyd Catalog, and the Western Shows Catalog. The William Boyd Catalog is also available in the Action/Adventure Catalog, the Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      11/10/15 - Today I added fourteen episodes to the Ramar of the Jungle Library, which completes the library with all 44 of the episodes known to still exist along with a feature film that was produced using four of the original episodes edited together and with an added narrative. As I mentioned before, the show has a somewhat racist tinge too it, but the episodes are well produced and quite exciting to watch, blending stock footage of African and Indian big game and natives with studio produced scenes of the actors doing their thing. If you can ignore all of the "political incorrectness". they are fun to watch. This library is located in the Action and Adventure Catalog.

      11/8/15 - Today I created a new The Baron library with twenty-seven of the 30 episodes of the complete series. The Baron (1965–1966) was a British television series based on the book series by John Creasey, written under the pseudonym Anthony Morton, and produced by ITC Entertainment. The show starred an American actor, Steve Forrest, as John Mannering, an antiques dealer and sometime undercover agent working in an informal capacity for the head of the fictional British Diplomatic Intelligence. This library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

      11/7/15 - Today I stumbled across four seasons of The Doris Day Show on Hulu and decided to start building a new library. I have posted the first twenty-three episodes so far. After finishing that it occurred to me that I didn't actually have any other Doris Day vehicles, which seemed to me to be an obvious oversight which needed to be corrected so I decided to build a Doris Day Film library, with twenty-eight feature films (more to come!) and a Doris Day Television Library with an appearance on Whats my Line? and six interview segments from varios talk shows. All of this was then incoporated into a 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. 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).

      11/6/15 - Today I added twelve 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.

      11/5/15 - Today I added ten episodes to the Life With Elizabeth library, making a grand total of twenty-eight in the library. There is very little information available about this show, which ran from 1952 until 1955, and was the first starring vehicle for Betty White. In fact the episode titles were probably made up by the people that uploaded the files, so there may be some duplicates - if anyone discovers duplicates I would really appreciate an alert to that effect (earl@solie.org). The low-budget comedy was produced by and filmed at a local Los Angeles TV station where White and co-star Del Moore were on the staff (the series was originally a live production on KLAC-TV in 1952). George Tibbles wrote every episode of the series. Betty White received her first Primetime Emmy Award nomination for her work on this series. All of my Betty White libraries can be found in the Betty White Catalog.

      11/4/15 - Today I added twenty-six episodes to the Annie Oakley Library. This takes us to the end of Season 3 and effectively completes the library - until I find more of the missing episodes, most of which are part of Season 2. Annie Oakley (1954-1957) was an American Western television series that fictionalized the life of famous sharpshooter Annie Oakley. The show starred Gail Davis in the title role, and co-starred Brad Johnson as Deputy Sheriff Lofty Craig and Jimmy Hawkins, as Annie's brother, Tagg. I have 27 more of these episodes bookmarked, so plenty more to come! This library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Western Shows Catalogs.

      11/3/15 - Today I created a new 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. These are from Hulu - sorry about the commercials. The new library is located in the Kid Shows, Action and Adventure and the Western Shows Catalogs. I also added No Identity and The Collar to the Four Star Playhouse library. Four Star Playhouse (1952–1956) featured individual episodes consisting of everything from comedy to drama. The original premise was that Charles Boyer, Ida Lupino, David Niven, and Dick Powell would take turns starring in episodes. However, several other performers took the lead from time to time, including Ronald Colman and Joan Fontaine. In 1954, Billboard voted it the second best filmed network television drama series. This library is located in (where else), the Television Drama Catalog.

      11/2/15 - Well today, apparently, is "Oriental Detective Day". It started early this morning when I got an email from a regular viewer alerting me to the fact that my Mr. Moto library was missing two videos. I went searching for replacements, and found one but not the other. However, during my search I managed to find three more films to add too the library! Mr. Moto is a fictional Japanese secret agent created by the American author John P. Marquand. He appeared in six novels by Marquand published between 1935 and 1957. Marquand initially created the character for the Saturday Evening Post, which was seeking stories with an Asian hero after the death of Charlie Chan's creator Earl Derr Biggers. In various other media, Mr. Moto has been portrayed as an international law enforcement agent. These include eight motion pictures starring Peter Lorre between 1937 and 1939. This library now contains all but one of those films. The added films include:

      Mr. Moto Takes A Chance (1938)
      Mr. Moto's Gamble (1938)
      Mr. Moto Takes A Vacation (1939)

      Also during my search I started running across Charlie Chan Films and managed to add seven films to that library! Charlie Chan is a fictional character created by Earl Derr Biggers. Biggers loosely based Chan on Honolulu detective Chang Apana, and conceived of the benevolent and heroic Chan as an alternative to Yellow Peril stereotypes and villains like Fu Manchu. Chan is a detective for the Honolulu police, though many stories feature Chan traveling the world as he investigates mysteries and solves crimes. Over four dozen films featuring Charlie Chan were made, beginning in 1926. The added films to this library include:

      Charlie Chan in Rio (1941)
      Dark Alibi (1946)
      Dangerous Money (1946)
      The Feathered Serpent (1948)
      The Shanghai Chest (1948)
      Docks of New Orleans (1948)
      The Sky Dragon (1949)

      These libraries are located in the Action and Adventure the Mystery & Crime Drama, and the Feature Films Catalogs. The Mr. Moto library is also found in the Peter Lorre Catalog.

      11/1/15 - This morning I added nineteen episodes to the The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis library, bringing us to the end of the 3rd Season. One Season to go. 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.

      10/31/15 - A few days off there - I have been working on a specal project, which I will reveal at a later date. Today I added eleven more episodes to the Ramar of the Jungle Library, which brings us to the end of Season one and several episodes into Season 2. This is one of the first shows I watched as a young lad of 5 years old and I really loved the series for the adventure of it and all those wild animals. I watched a couple of episodes recently and was struck by how utterly racist the show is. The protagonists are all priviledged white men (and every so often, a woman or two) and even though the professed mission of the Ramar himself is to seek new cures for diseases among the shamans and witch doctors of the African and (East) Indian tribes, and to help relieve the suffering of those same natives - the overall attitude of all these white people appears to be that their "colored" counterparts are beneath them and undeserving of the help they seek to bring. One scene in the first episode in particular struck me - Ramar and his associate, Prof. Ogden. and their trusty guide have been captured by a tribe and then made their escape. They are chased to the river bank and wade across the water to the other side. As they arrive on the opposite bank, the natives arrive on the other side and start throwing spears at them. The spears all fall short into the river, and the tribesmen don't seem willing to cross over, so it is obvious that Ramar and his party are out of danger at this point. Nonetheless, they immediately turn and start firing their rifles, wounding and or killing several of the natves before the remainder turn and flee to safety. The question is, since they were clearly safe from further attack, why turn around and start slaugtering their foes? Anyway, and regardless of that strange quirk in their behaviour, the episodes are well produced and quite exciting to watch, blending stock footage of African and Indian big game and natives with studio produced scenes of the actors doing their thing. If you can ignore all of the "political incorrectness". they are fun to watch. This library is located in the Action and Adventure Catalog. For those who have already watched the current library, the added episodes are:

      The Blue Treasure
      Drums of Doom
      Savage Fury
      Voice of the Past
      Savage Fury
      Evil Strangers
      Dark Justice
      Trail to Danger
      Call to Danger
      Idol Voo-Doo
      Dark Venture

      10/25/15 - Late last night I added the first twenty-two episodes of Season 3 to the McHale's Navy Library. McHale's Navy (1962-1966) was a wacky military service comedy series set in the Pacific theatre of World War II (for the last season the setting changed to the European theater in Italy) and focused on the loony misfit crew of PT-73, wily boys with crazy antics, led by Lieutenant Commander Quinton McHale, played by Ernest Borgnine. I have the entire series bookmarked, so more to come. This library is located in the Funny Guys and the Action and Adventure Catalogs. Also, this morning I read about the passing of Maureen O'Hara at the age of 95. So I decided to put together a Maureen O'Hara Library. Maureen O'Hara (born Maureen FitzSimons; 17 August 1920 – 24 October 2015) was an Irish-American actress and singer. The famously red-headed O'Hara was known for playing fiercely passionate heroines, and often worked with director, John Ford and actor, John Wayne. Although she was never nominated for a Academy Award, in November 2014 she was presented with an Honorary Academy Award with the inscription "To Maureen O'Hara, one of Hollywood's brightest stars, whose inspiring performances glowed with passion, warmth and strength". This library contains eleven feature films and one television appearance, on This is Your Life in 1957, and is located in the Feature Films Catalog and in the Catalog of Stars.

      10/24/15 - Today I created a new WKRP in Cincinnati library with all twenty-two episodes of Season 1, courtesy of Hulu (sorry about the commercials). WKRP in Cincinnati (1979-1982) was an American sitcom that featured the misadventures of the staff of a struggling fictional radio station in Cincinnati, Ohio. The ensemble cast consists of Gary Sandy, Howard Hesseman, Gordon Jump, Loni Anderson, Tim Reid, Jan Smithers, Richard Sanders and Frank Bonner. The series won a Humanitas Prize and received 10 Emmy Award nominations, including three for Outstanding Comedy Series. I felt a personal connection to this series because, during the latter part of it's run, I ran a recording studio out of my home and would make radio commercials from time-to-time - doing voice-overs and writing and recording commercial jingles, etc. So I spent some time in radio stations and met people who held the same kinds of jobs as the characters in this series. The new library is located in the Whacky Dames and the Funny Guys Catalogs.

      10/22/15 - Right after I added those last three episodes I found another cache of Ramar of the Jungle videos, so I have added eight more episodes to the library. The added episodes are:

      Mark of Shaitan
      Mark of the Bola
      Curse of the Devil Doll
      The Golden Tablet
      The Flaming Mountain
      White Man's Magic
      Zombie Terror
      Savage Challenge

      All of these episodes are set in India (most of the series is set in Africa). More to come. This library is located in the Action and Adventure Catalog.

      10/17/15 - Today I added three episodes to the Ramar of the Jungle library. I had actually given up on the idea of finding any more of these about 2 years ago. Then today I had an email message from a viewer asking if I ever planned to put up any more episodes. I was about to write him back and explain that those 7 are all that I had ever found - but decided to do a Search instead, and found these three episodes on Daily Motion. For those who have already watched all of the current episodes, the added ones are the last three in the library - the last one from Season 1 and the first 2 episodes from Season 2. Ramar of the Jungle (1952–1953) was a syndicated American television series that starred Jon Hall as Dr. Tom Reynolds (the titular “ramar,” an African title for a white medicine man) and Ray Montgomery as his associate, Professor Howard Ogden. Episodes were set in Africa and India. In Season 1, the first 13 episodes are set in Africa and the second 13 are set in India. For the Season 2, all 26 episodes take place in Africa. This library is located in the Action and Adventure Catalog.

      10/15/15 - Tonight I decided to temporarily halt a site-wide project to upgrade my source video links long enough to add Season 2 (twenty-eight episodes) to the I Spy library. I Spy (1965-1968) was an American television secret agent action adventure series about a pair of American agents facing espionage adventures with skill, humor and ingenuity, which aired on NBC. The show starred Robert Culp and Bill Cosby. The series broke ground for being the first American television drama to feature an African American actor (Bill Cosby) in one of the lead roles. Now as I have said before, I want to stress that, yes, I am aware of the controversey surrounding Bill Cosby, but whether you love him or hate him, this was a great series and Cosby was really good in it, as attested too by the several Emmy awards he received for his work. These are from Hulu, sorry about the commercials. This library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs. The entire series is available so many more to come.

      10/12/15 - Tonight I added ten episodes to the Four Star Playhouse library. Four Star Playhouse (1952–1956) featured individual episodes consisting of everything from comedy to drama. The original premise was that Charles Boyer, Ida Lupino, David Niven, and Dick Powell would take turns starring in episodes. However, several other performers took the lead from time to time, including Ronald Colman and Joan Fontaine. In 1954, Billboard voted it the second best filmed network television drama series. This library is located in (where else), the Television Drama Catalog. For those who may have already watched all of the current episodes in this library, the added episodes are:

      Night Ride
      The Room
      The Test
      Operation in Money
      Village in the City
      Vote of Confidence
      Stuffed Shirt
      Devil to Pay
      Something Very Special
      Autumn Carousel

      10/11/15 - Late last night I discovered that all of the YouTube sourced videos in The Avengers Library had disappeared. Since they comprised a large portion of the existing library, of course, it was a distressing discovery. However, I soon remembered that I had actually taken steps to restore this library under these exact circumstances, should the need arise. Soon after completing the original collection, I had found the entire series, as presented in the US, on Hulu! At the time I had decided to await out the inevitable rather than plunge in and make the change right away. Part of me liked being able to present the bulk of the series without commercials. At any rate, if you have been to the library before, you will notice that the 2 Season 1 episodes that were part of the original library are no longer in evidense, but otherwise the collection is intact. The Avengers (not to be confused with the Marvel comic book characters that went by the same title) was a spy-fi British television series created in the 1960s. The series initially focused on Dr. David Keel (Ian Hendry) and his assistant John Steed (Patrick Macnee). Hendry left after the first season and Steed became the main character, partnered with a succession of assistants, mostly female. The Avengers library is located in the Action and Adventure, Television Drama and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

      10/9/15 - Today, in I my never ending quest to post ancient western shows, I added twenty-six episodes to the Annie Oakley Library. This greatly expands the library, which previously had only eleven episodes. Annie Oakley (1954-1957) was an American Western television series that fictionalized the life of famous sharpshooter Annie Oakley. The show starred Gail Davis in the title role, and co-starred Brad Johnson as Deputy Sheriff Lofty Craig and Jimmy Hawkins, as Annie's brother, Tagg. I have 27 more of these episodes bookmarked, so plenty more to come! This library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Western Shows Catalogs.

      10/7/15 - Today I added thirty-eight episodes from Season 2 to Season 4 of The Alfred Hitchcock Presents library from Hulu, which completes the library until I find the the missing episodes from the later Seasons. Alfred Hitchcock Presents was an American television anthology series hosted by Alfred Hitchcock, which aired on CBS and NBC between the years of 1955 and 1965. The series featured dramas, thrillers, and mysteries. By the time the show premiered on October 2, 1955, Hitchcock had been directing films for over three decades. Time magazine named Alfred Hitchcock Presents one of "The 100 Best TV Shows of all time". This library contains almost all of the episodes from the first 4 seasons, and a few from Seasons 5 and 7. This library is located both in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog and the Alfred Hitchcock Catalog, which is available via the Catalog of Stars. Because these episodes have been integrated throughout the library, for the benefit of those who may already have watched all of the previous episodes, the added episodes are listed below:

      None Are So Blind
      Toby

      Season 3

      10/6/15 - Today 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. Also, last night I discovered that all but 2 episodes of my Peter Gunn Library were gone again. The last time this happened was back in Jamuary, and I was able to restore the library from a new channel I found on YouTube that time. Fortunately, about three months ago I discovered that the entire series was available on Hulu, and I had bookmarked for just such an occurrence as this. So I was able to restore the library in a couple of hours, and since there is no expiration date on the Hulu collection I expect the library will stay intact for a while.

      10/5/15 - Today I added the last sixteen episodes to complete the Whiplash library (until I find the 1 missing episode). Whiplash (1959–1960) was a British/Australian television series made by the Seven Network and ATV and ITC Entertainment. Set in the 1840s, the series was a western filmed in Australia, and starred Peter Graves as "Christopher Cobb". The series was loosely based on the life of Freeman Cobb, who was the genuine founder of Australia's first stagecoach line Cobb and Co. Peter Graves, in his character of Christopher Cobb, did not carry a pistol and often used a bullwhip to settle disputes. This library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Western Shows Catalogs.

      10/4/15 - Today I added Season 3 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. This library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog.

      10/3/15 - Today I added five more episodes to the Dinah Shore Show library. Dinah Shore (born Frances Rose Shore; February 29, 1916 – February 24, 1994) was an American singer, actress, television personality, and the top-charting female vocalist of the 1940s. She reached the height of her popularity as a recording artist during the Big Band era of the 1940s and 1950s, but achieved even greater success a decade later, in television, mainly as hostess of a series of variety programs for Chevrolet. The library is located in the Musical Programs Catalog and in the Catalog of Stars.

      10/2/15 - Today I created a new Broadside library with thirty of the thirty-two episodes that make up the series. Broadside was an American sitcom that aired on ABC during the 1964-1965 TV season. The series, produced by McHale's Navy creator Edward Montagne, starred Kathleen Nolan, formerly of The Real McCoys (her character, Lieutenant Morgan, had first appeared on McHale's Navy the previous season). The series centered on the women of the Navy (WAVES) circa World War II, who found themselves transferred to an island in the South Pacific to run the motor pool in an otherwise all-male environment. Their nemesis was Commander Adrian, who liked things just fine the way they were and felt that having women around would just louse everything up. Fortunately for the WAVES, the other men liked them just fine and often helped the girls foil Adrian's latest scheme to get rid of them. The new library is located in the Whacky Dames and the Funny Guys Catalogs.

      9/30/15 - This morning I discovered that Seasons 1 and 3 had disappeared from my Rawhide library. Fortunately, I had found several sources for the series and managed to restore them all in about an hour. I then went ahead and added Season 6 (thirty-one episodes) to the 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 2 more seasons bookmarked, so many more to come! This library is located in the Western Shows Catalog.

      9/29/15 - Continuing with the little "Hulu Jag" I have been on lately, today I added forty-three episodes to the Green Acres library, which takes us too the end of Season 3. 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.

      9/28/15 - Today I created a new Dragnet (1967 revival) Library with all seventeen episodes of Season 1. 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. Since I now have two seperate Dragnet libraries, I decided to create a Dragnet Catalog to house the two libraries. The new Dragnet Catalog is available in Action and Adventure and the Mystery, Detectives and Crime Drama Catalogs. These videos are from Hulu (sorry about the commercials) and there are two more seasons to post

      9/26/15 - Today I added Season 2 (twenty-four epiodes) to the Bob Newhart Show Library. The Bob Newhart Show was an American situation comedy produced by MTM Enterprises, which aired 142 half-hour episodes on CBS from September 16, 1972, to April 1, 1978. Comedian Bob Newhart portrayed a psychologist having to deal with his patients and fellow office workers. The show was filmed before a live audience. The show centers on Robert Hartley, Ph.D. (Newhart), a Chicago psychologist. It divides most of its action between the character's work and his home life, with Hartley's supportive (though occasionally sarcastic) wife Emily (Suzanne Pleshette), and their friendly but inept neighbor, airline navigator Howard Borden (Bill Daily). At the medical office where Hartley has his psychology practice are Jerry Robinson, D.D.S. (Peter Bonerz), an orthodontist who also has a practice on the floor, and their joke-loving receptionist, Carol Kester (Marcia Wallace), as well as a number of other doctors who appear occasionally. These are from Hulu (sorry about the commercials) and the first three Seasons (72 episodes) are available, so 24 more to come. The new libary is located in both the Funny Guys and the Family Comedies and Drama Catalogs.

      9/25/15 - Today I created a Foreign Intrigue library with eleven episodes so far. Foreign Intrigue (1951–1955) (also known as Foreign Assignment) was a syndicated television series produced in Europe by Sheldon Reynolds. The 30-minute series ran for four seasons from 1951 to 1955, producing 156 episodes. The series was set in post-Second World War Europe and dealt with spies and various other shady underworld characters. It originally starred Jerome Thor for the first two seasons. Thor was succeeded by James Daly for the duration of the third season. The fourth and final season starred Gerald Mohr as Christopher Storm. The new library is available in Action and Adventure and the Mystery, Detectives and Crime Drama Catalogs.

      9/24/15 - Today I did a little bit of work on the site, creating a new Duffy's Tavern library with six episodes so far. Duffy's Tavern (1954) was a popular American radio situation comedy which ran for a decade on several networks concluding with the December 28, 1951 broadcast. The short-lived 1954 syndicated TV series, co-produced by Hal Roach, Jr., failed to gain viewer support. It ran for one season. I also added three episodes to the Love That Bob library. The Bob Cummings Show (1955–1959) - aka Love That Bob - featured the romantic misadventures of Bob Collins, a suave, sophisticated bachelor and photographer in Hollywood, California. The show centers around his womanizing ways with his models, and his sister's attempts to make him settle down. Starring Robert Cummings, Ann B. Davis, Rosemary DeCamp and Dwayne Hickman. For those who have already watched all of the Love That Bob library, the added episodes are the last three from Season 4. Both libraries are located in the Funny Guys Catalog. Love That Bob is also located in the Robert Cummings Catalog.

      9/23/15 - Today I created a new Whiplash library with seventeen of the thirty-four episodes that make up the complete series. I have 33 of them bookmarked, so 16 more to come. Whiplash (1959–1960) was a British/Australian television series made by the Seven Network and ATV and ITC Entertainment. Set in the 1840s, the series was a western filmed in Australia, and starred Peter Graves as "Christopher Cobb". The series was loosely based on the life of Freeman Cobb, who was the genuine founder of Australia's first stagecoach line Cobb and Co. Peter Graves, in his character of Christopher Cobb, did not carry a pistol and often used a bullwhip to settle disputes. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Western Shows Catalogs.

      9/21/15 - Today I added eight episodes to the Four Star Playhouse library. Four Star Playhouse (1952–1956) featured four rotating stars, Charles Boyer, David Niven, Ida Lupino and Dick Powell in individual episodes consisting of everything from comedy to drama. This library is located in (where else), the Television Drama Catalog. For those who may have already watched all of the current episodes in this library, the added episodes are:

      Search in the Night
      For Art's Sake
      Man in the Cellar
      Kiss for Mr. Lincoln
      Girl on the Bridge
      Case of Emily Cameron
      Second Chance
      Yellowbelly

      9/19/15 - This afternoon I created a new He & She Library with the first twelve of the 26 episodes that make up the series. In He & She (1967), Dick and Paula Hollister are a witty, sophisticated couple living in New York City. Dick is a comic-book artist who has become well-known for creating a superhero called Jetman, which has been turned into a TV show starring egocentric actor Oscar North. Stars: Paula Prentiss, Richard Benjamin, Jack Cassidy. These 12 episodes are all I have found so far - I hope to find more. The new library is located in the Whacky Dames, Funny Guys, and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs.

      9/17/15 - Today I added Season 2 (thirty-six episodes) to the McHale's Navy Library. McHale's Navy (1962-1966) was a wacky military service comedy series set in the Pacific theatre of World War II (for the last season the setting changed to the European theater in Italy) and focused on the loony misfit crew of PT-73, wily boys with crazy antics, led by Lieutenant Commander Quinton McHale, played by Ernest Borgnine. I have the entire series bookmarked, so two Seasons to come. This library is located in the Funny Guys and the Action and Adventure Catalogs.

      9/16/15 - Tonight added eighteen episodes to the Naked City which brings us to the end of the Season 1. One more Season to come! Naked City (1958–1963) was a police drama series which aired on the ABC television network. It was inspired by the 1948 motion picture The Naked City and mimics its dramatic "semi-documentary" format. As in the film, each episode concluded with a narrator intoning the iconic line: "There are eight million stories in the naked city. This has been one of them." Stars: Harry Bellaver, Horace McMahon and Paul Burke. These first Season episodes are each 30 minutes long. During the second Season the programs expanded to an hour. The new library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

      9/15/15 - Today I added seventeen episodes to the The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis library, bringing us to the middle of the 3rd Season. A Season and a half left to go. 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.

      9/14/15 - Today I created a new The Scarlet Pimpernel Library with all eighteen episodes of the complete series. In The Adventures of The Scarlet Pimpernel (1956) Sir Percy Blakeney, Bart., is a notorious fop and hedonistic member of the Prince Regent's court, but he is secretly "the Scarlet Pimpernel", a mysterious figure who rescues innocents from the Reign of Terror taking place in France and transports them to safety in England. Based on the classic adventure novels by Baroness Orczy, this series was one of the earliest costume dramas produced for television. Stars: Marius Goring, Stanley Van Beers, Anthony Newlands. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Historical Drama Catalogs.

      9/12/15 - Tonight I posted the final sixteen episodes to the Yancy Derringer Library. Yancy Derringer (1958-1959) was an American Western series that ran on CBS, with Jock Mahoney in the title role. Yancy Derringer is a gentleman adventurer. He is a former Confederate Army captain who has returned to New Orleans, Louisiana in 1868, three years after the end of the Civil War. Widely respected by all parts of New Orleans society, he is recruited by the Federal city administrator, John Colton, to work as a secret agent at no pay. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Western Shows Catalogs.

      9/11/15 - Today, in my seeming never ending quest to post obscure TV shows. I created a new Northwest Passage library with twelve episodes to start. These are all I have found so far, but there are 28 episodes in the series so I will keep my eyes open for more. In Northwest Passage (1958), Major Robert Rogers organized "Rogers Rangers" to search for the alleged waterway across the United States during the French and Indian War (1754-1759). The episodes told the story of their trials and tribulations searching for the Northwest Passage and their battles with both the French and Indians during this war. Stars: Keith Larsen, Buddy Ebsen, Don Burnett. This library is located in both the Action and Adventure and the Historical Drama Catalogs.

      9/10/15 - Today I added six episodes to my The Adventures of Dr. Fu Manchu library, giving us eight of the thirteen episodes of the full series. I also added plot summary, Season, and Episode information to the existing player pages. The Adventures of Dr. Fu Manchu (1956) introduces us to Dr. Fu Manchu, evil genius and possessor of seemingly unlimited financial resources, who has pledged to bring about the downfall of western civilization to avenge unknown wrongs of the past. Only Sir Dennis Nayland-Smith of Scotland Yard is able to thwart his evil plans, ranging from assassination to germ attacks to sparking an all-out war. Stars: Glen Gordon, Lester Matthews, Clark Howat. Ths library is located in the Action and Adventure Catalog.

      9/7/15 - This morning I read of the passing of Martin Milner and decided it was time to create the Adam-12 library, for which I had bookmarked the series on Hulu a few weeks ago. I have posted seventeen episodes so far. The series on Hulu is NOT complete. They seem to have only selected episodes. Since I already have a Route 66 library, I decided to create a Martin Milner Catalog to house the two series', then went a little further and added a Feature Films library, with six films so far, and a Other TV Appearances library, with eleven episodes from other TV shows featuring Milner, which were already on the site. Martin Sam Milner (December 28, 1931 – September 6, 2015) was an American film, stage, radio and television actor. Milner is best known for his performances in two popular television series: Route 66, which aired on CBS from 1960 to 1964, and Adam-12, which aired on NBC from 1968 to 1975. He made his first television appearance in 1950 as a guest star in episode 28 titled "Pay Dirt" on The Lone Ranger. That same year, he began a recurring role as "Drexel Potter" on the television sitcom The Stu Erwin Show. He also appeared on six episodes of Webb's Dragnet television series between 1952 and 1955 and had a recurring role on The Life of Riley from 1953 to 1958. The new Adam-12 library is available in Action and Adventure and the Mystery, Detectives and Crime Drama Catalogs. The Martin Milner catalog can be found in the Catalog of Stars.

      9/6/15 - In an act of defiance I decided to put in a little work on Labor Day :-) and restored my long missing Law of the Plainsman library with twenty-nine of the 30 episodes that make up the series. This was one of (if not THE) first library I created completely from YouTube videos, and I soon learned the folly of not waiting to see if the uploads would last before doing the work of creating player pages. It vanished almost as soon as I finished it, and I never got around to looking for more of them. I found these on the Internet Archive recently, and they comprise the entire series, except for Episode 11, which I plan to keep looking for, so (hopefully) one more to come. Law of the Plainsman (1959) was the story of Sam Buckhart, who was an Apache Indian who had saved the life of a U.S. Cavalry officer after an Indian ambush. When the officer died, he left Sam money that was used for an education at private schools and Harvard University. After school, he returned to New Mexico where he became a Deputy Marshal working for Marshal Andy Morrison and living in a boarding house run by Martha Commager. Stars: Michael Ansara, Gina Gillespie and Dayton Lummis.

      9/5/15 - Today I received an email from regular correspondent, Ivar Sand, who gave me a heads-up about a couple of episodes from the first Season of The Avengers available on YouTube. These are the first I have ever seen. The first Season of the series was never broadcast on US television, and video of said episodes are very rare indeed. It was only two episoes, so I went ahead and posted them to the library. The series initially focused on Dr. David Keel (Ian Hendry) and his assistant John Steed (Patrick Macnee). Hendry left after the first season and Steed became the main character, partnered with a succession of female assistants from the Second Season on. The Avengers library is located in the Action and Adventure, Television Drama and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

      9/2/15 - Today I created a new The Last of the Mohicans library with twelve episodes to start. I hope to find more, but I am not confident that I will because none of the various databases I consulted had more than 16 episode descriptions for the 39 episodes that make up the entire series. My theory is that those 16 are all that still exist, so I might find 4 more but I also might not. 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.

      9/1/15 - Earlier this evening I ran across some Private Secretary episodes and remembered that I had lost most of that library about 6 months ago. I was down to 3 episodes and was able to add eleven to the series, including one called "Elusive" that wasn't in the previous version of the library. This library is accessable via the Whacky Dames Catalog. Private Secretary (also known as Susie) aired from February 1, 1953 to September 10, 1957 on CBS, alternating with The Jack Benny Program on Sundays at 7:30pm EST. The series starred Ann Sothern as Susan Camille "Susie" MacNamara, devoted secretary to handsome talent agent Peter Sands, played by Don Porter.

      8/31/15 - Tonight I went searching for episodes of Naked City at the suggestion of a Facebook correspondent, Bob Lewis, and didn't expect t find much. I have looked for episodes many times and never found more than a few short clips. Imagine my surprise when I checked on Hulu and found the complete 1st and 2nd Seasons of the series with no expiration date. I have posted the first twenty-three episodes. Many more to come! Naked City (1958–1963) was a police drama series which aired on the ABC television network. It was inspired by the 1948 motion picture The Naked City and mimics its dramatic "semi-documentary" format. As in the film, each episode concluded with a narrator intoning the iconic line: "There are eight million stories in the naked city. This has been one of them." Stars: Harry Bellaver, Horace McMahon and Paul Burke. These first Season episodes are each 30 minutes long. During the second Season the programs expanded to an hour. The new library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

      8/30/15 - Today I was able to restore my Hogan's Heroes Library, which includes the complete 1st Season. This is as far as I had gotten back in March when the entire library vanished because the YouTube channel they were all part of was taken down. I now have all 6 seasons bookmarked, but again they are all on the same YouTube channel. I went ahead and restored the pages I already had because it was relatively easy to do since the pages were already built. Now I am going to hold off for a while before I build any new pages from scratch, even though the uploads I am dealing with are over a year old. I have no idea how long these will last so watch 'em while I ve got them! 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.

      8/27/15 - Today I created a new Yancy Derringer Library with the first eighteen episodes to start. I have all 34 episodes of this series bookmarked so more to come. Yancy Derringer (1958-1959) was an American Western series that ran on CBS, with Jock Mahoney in the title role. Yancy Derringer is a gentleman adventurer. He is a former Confederate Army captain who has returned to New Orleans, Louisiana in 1868, three years after the end of the Civil War. Widely respected by all parts of New Orleans society, he is recruited by the Federal city administrator, John Colton, to work as a secret agent at no pay. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Western Shows Catalogs. Many of these are from DailyMotion.com, which occasionally, but not always, has commercials embedded in them. Sorry about that.

      8/24/15 - This morning I added four episodes to my Sheena Queen of the Jungle Library, bringing the total to 16 episodes. Sheena debuted in Joshua B. Power's British magazine Wags #1, in 1937. She was created by Will Eisner and S. M. "Jerry" Iger. Model Irish McCalla portrayed Sheena in a 26-episode TV series aired in first-run syndication from 1955 to 1956. McCalla told a newspaper interviewer she was discovered by Nassour Studios while throwing a bamboo spear on a Malibu, California beach, famously adding, "I couldn't act, but I could swing through the trees". The new library is located in the Action and Adventure Catalog. I will continue to search for these - but so far they are all I have found.

      The added episodes are:
      The Elephant God
      Eye of the Idol
      Forbidden Land and
      Jungle Pursuit

      8/24/15 - Today I added eleven episodes to the The Professionals library, which brings us to the end of Season 5 and the end of the series with all 57 episodes intact. The Professionals (1977–1983) was a British crime-action television drama series produced by Avengers Mk1 Productions and London Weekend Television that aired on the ITV network. This series chronicled the lives of Bodie and Doyle, top agents for Britain's CI5 (Criminal Intelligence 5), and their controller, George Cowley. The mandate of CI5 was to fight terrorism and similar high-profile crimes. This library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

      8/22/15 - Today I added Season 5 (twenty-nine 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 3 more seasons bookmarked, so many more to come! This library is located in the Western Shows Catalog.

      8/21/15 - Today I added sisxteen episodes from Season 5 to the The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin Library, which effectively finishes the library until I find more episodes. At this point we have 116 of the 164 episodes of the entire series. 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.

      8/18/15 - Today I added Season 4 (twenty-six episodes) to the The Big Valley library thus completing the series. The Big Valley was an American western television series which ran on ABC. The show starred Barbara Stanwyck, as the widow of a wealthy nineteenth century California rancher. The TV series was based loosely on the Hill Ranch, which was located at the western edge of Calaveras County, not far from Stockton. This library is located in the Western Shows and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs.

      8/17/15 - More Are You Being Served? - this time the Australian spin off, also starring John Inman, Are You Being Served in Australia?, with ten of the sixteen episodes that make up the entire series. Located in the Are You Being Served? Catalog, which can be found via the Funny Guys and the Whacky Dames Catalogs. I have to apologise in advance for the annoying clock timer that appears at the top of the screen on these videos - nothing I could do about it.

      8/16/15 - Today I added Season 2 (thirty-six episodes) to the The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis library. 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.

      8/15/15 - Shortly after I finished the Are You Being Served? Library I received an email from frequent correspondent, Dennis Carter, telling me that there was a short-lived sequal to the show called Grace & Favour (the American release was called Are You Being Served? Again), which I searched for on YouTube and found all twelve of the episodes. Grace & Favour was a sequel to the original long-running series. It aired on BBC1 for two seasons from 1992 to 1993 and marked the return of Are You Being Served? creators and writers Jeremy Lloyd and David Croft. This library can be found in both the Funny Guys and the Whacky Dames Catalogs, and I have created an Are You Being Served? Catalog to house both series'.

      8/14/15 - Today I added the 9th and 10th Seasons (thirteen episodes) to the Are You Being Served? Library, which completes the series with all 69 episodes. Are You Being Served? (1972–1985) was a BBC television sitcom. The series follows the misadventures and mishaps of the staff, as well as various interludes with customers (portrayed by popular and well-known British actors in guest appearances), of the retail ladies' and gentlemen's clothing floor departments of a fictional London department store called Grace Brothers. This library can be found in both the Funny Guys and the Whacky Dames Catalogs. I also found the 1st Season of the Original BattleBots series this morning and added all fourteen episodes. More to come!

      8/13/15 - Tonight I thought I had discovered the first Season of the BattleBots tv series, and since it was only six episodes, I built the library in about a half hour...only to then realize that in fact, this is the recent revial of the show that aired aired in July and is available on Hulu until the end of this month :-(. Anyway, I had the pages already built so I am posting them with the proviso that you need to watch these right aay before they expire on Hulu on August 31st. While I was at it I completed the Original Season 2 of the series as well. The BattleBots library is located in the Robots Catalog which can be found in the Game Show, SciFi/Fantasy and Feature Films Catalogs and in the Catalog of Stars.

      8/11/15 - Last night I created a new The Man from U.N.C.L.E. library with the entire first season (twenty-nine episodes), which is all I have found so far. I originally found this complete series on YouTube about a year ago and bookmarked them, only to see them vanish a few weeks later. These videos are from Daily Motion, which seems to be a lot looser about copyrighted content (possibly because the company that owns the site is located in Indonesia). In any case, while I am announcing the new library here, I have decided not to post it to Facebook in hopes that it will stay around for a while - I want to watch them myself! I have no idea how long these embeds will continue to function, so watch then while I've got them! The new library is located in the Action and Adventure and Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

      8/6/15 - Tonight I created a new Other Jon Stewart Appearances library with twelve videos including Stewart appearances on the David Letterman Show, on his own short-lived Jon Stewart Show on MTV and guest appearances on other progrms. Ths led to creating a new Jon Stewart Catalog to this and the Daily Show with Jon Stewart library. The new catalog is located in the Catalog of Stars, and the Funny Guys Catalog.

      8/5/15 - Today it occurred too me that with John Stewart leaving The Daily Show after this week, it would probably be a good idea to create a Daily Show with Jon Stewart library to commemorate the occasion. What prompted this idea was an article in today's New Your Times entitled "Jon Stewart and 'The Daily Show': A Behind-the-Scenes Look at 9 Essential Moments" By Jeremy Egner, Dave Itzkoff and Kathryn Shattuck. The article was accompanied by 10 video clips going back to the very first episode in 1999, which concerned the Impeachment proceedings in the Congress against Bill Clinton, and later clips of note. So this library, which can be found in the Funny Guys and the News/Documentary (Reality) Programs Catalogs, will start out with those nine videos (and the follow-up clips from the same programs). They include Jon Stewart's infamous appearance on Crossfire (which led directly to the show's demise) and his first interview with President Barack Obama. Many more to come! tars

      8/4/15 - Tonight I added twenty-two episodes to the Father Knows Best library, taking us to Episode 19 of Season 2. 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.

      8/3/15 - Today I added nineteen episodes to the McHale's Navy Library, which completes Season 1 of the series. McHale's Navy (1962-1966) was a wacky military service comedy series set in the Pacific theatre of World War II (for the last season the setting changed to the European theater in Italy) and focused on the loony misfit crew of PT-73, wily boys with crazy antics, led by Lieutenant Commander Quinton McHale, played by Ernest Borgnine. I will admit that I loved this series as a teenager. I have had it bookmarked for almost a year now, and finally decided to take a chance and start posting the episodes. I have the entire series bookmarked, by the way, so three Seasons to come. This library is located in the Funny Guys and the Action and Adventure Catalogs.

      7/28/15 - Today I am pleased to announce that I am restoring my The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis library with all of the Season 1 episodes (thirty-eight, in total) to start. Since I only had 12 in the original library, this is a vast improvement. In fact, I have recenty discovered that the entire series (147 episodes) is available on Hulu (sorry about the commercials). I am inclined to try and finish this library in the very near future - so look for it to expand exponentially. 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 was one of my favorite series' growing up. Also, since this is now the second series I have posted that features Bob Denver, I have created a Bob Denver Catalog to house this series and also the Dusty's Trail library. I hope to also feature Denver's biggest hit show, Gilligan's Island, one of these days, but so far I have had little luck finding full episodes of that series, and when I have they tend to vanish from whichever streaming service I have found them on before I can post them to my site. The new catalog is located in the Catalog of Stars, while the individual series libraries can be accessed via the Funny Guys Catalog. Dusty's Trail can also be found in the Western Shows Catalog.

      7/27/15 - Today, I made a site-wide change in all of the Catalog pages. Previously the links on those pages consisted of a thumbnail image, which constituted the link, and Title Text under the image which was not part of the link. My change to the set-up was to include the Title Text in the link. The reason I did this is to enhance the navigation of the site for blind people. At the suggestion of a blind correspondent, Michael Bayus, I did some reading on how the tools that the sight-impared user works with in order to navigate a web site and found that the tools usually read the text of a link out loud so that the blind person can know where the link leads. The user under the old set-up would read the Text under the link and then would have to move the cursor in order to click on the link. Under the new set up, the user can read the text and then click on it to go to the page, without having to move the cursor. The only change that sighted users will notice is that the link Title Text is now underlined, indicating that it is part of the link.

      7/26/15 - For the last few days I have been doing "library clean-up" wherein I go through individual program libraries and test all of the title links to see if we have lost any of the videos. This one took place in the TV Drama and Feature Films libraries. The results were pretty good - but in the course of the study I did find about 60 or so title links that sent me to dead pages (almost always YouTube videos). The good news is that I am able to restore the pages in about 80% of cases. Anytime I create a new page, there are usually a few other copies of the same video available - I always choose the one that has been up on YouTube the longest. In some cases, especially with very poplular shows, or shows that are of a more recent vintage, I will sit on bookmarks for a year or more before posting them to make sure I am not wasting my efforts (as happened with the ill-fated Gunsmoke library, which vanished 4 times in the course of two years before I finally gave up on it). The McHale's Navy library that I posted a couple of weeks ago, for instance, was bookmarked for well over a year before I took any action - and I am still waiting to post more, just to see what happens to the ones I already put up. Now this post is going to get a bit "wonky", so if you have no interest in the minutia of how I maintain the site - you may want to move on. One of the things I started noticing lately is that my work on the site in the first couple of years was somewhat sloppy. I was still experimenting with my presentation strategy and and wasn't paying attention to how efficient I was making the library pages for the average viewer. I noticed that many times, when a viewer would hit the "More Episodes" link to go to the next library page, he or she would have to look around for the next forward link before they could move on. The simple solution to this issue was to make the library pages uniform. Each series library page, for instance, consists of the library title, followed usually by a description of the series, then a list of titles below. The title lists are in two or three columns usually - occasionally 4, but that is very rare. The number of columns depends on how long the titles are. I have found that some series' tend to have long titles - 4 or 5 words or more, others might always be short - 1 to 3 words, and still others tend to mix up the title lengths. Longer titles mean fewer columns and ultimately, more library pages. I do sometimes shorten the titles in order to make room for more columns. In one particular series, which will remain unnamed, the writers had appended the words "The Story of..." to every single title in the series. I took out those appendages, and thus saved myself from creating about 6 more library pages. But I digress - getting back to my uniformity cleanup - to create uniformity the trick is to figure out the maximum number of titles in a given column for that library's template and then standardize that number throughout the library pages. What this means is that if you hit the "More Episodes" link on the first page, it takes you to the second page and ideally your cursor should end up sitting on the "More Episodes" link for that page. This allows the viewer who is looking for a particular episode to simply scan the page for whatever he or she is looking for, then if they don't find it, they can simply click on the "More Episodes" link without having to move their cursor first, thus making it much easier to scan an entire library in a matter of minutes. I am going to be checking out ALL of the libraries over the next few months and introducing uniformity wherever possible.

      7/22/15 - Today I added eighteen episodes to the Suspense Library, taking us into the 6th Season of the series. At this point I suspect that I won't be finding any more of them because I noticed, while looking up the missing episodes, that none of the databases I consult regularly have any plot summary information for any of the episodes I don't already have. So I am concluding, for the time being, that for my purposes this series is complete. Since the series started in 1949 and was shot live, it is not unlikely that most of the episodes could be lost. I have 74 of the 262 episodes known to have been produced. Suspense (1949–1954) was an American television anthology series that ran on CBS Television from 1949 to 1954. Live plays featuring people who were in dangerous and threatening situations. Like many early television shows, the show was broadcast live from New York City. This library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror, the Television Drama and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

      7/21/15 - Today I added thirteen episodes to the Dusty's Trail library. This expands the library to almost triple it's former size. Dusty's Trail was an American Western/Comedy series that aired in syndication from September 1973 to March 1974. The series is set in the 19th century about a small group of travelers separated from their wagon train who become lost. Bob Denver as Dusty, the assistant to the leader of a wagon train, and Forrest Tucker as Mr. Callahan, his irascible boss. This library is located in the Funny Guys and the Western Shows Catalogs.

      7/20/15 - Today, in the process of repairing a dead link in the Kraft Suspense Theatre Library, I found seven more episodes to add to the library, including:

      Leviathan Five
      My Enemy, This Town
      Knight's Gambit
      An Unknown Man
      Their Own Executioners
      He Couldn't Kill a Fly
      Green Felt Jungle

      Not to be confused with the 1950s mystery/drama series called Suspense, Kraft Suspense Theatre was a late entry into the drama anthology genre and was first telecast on NBC beginning in 1963. Sponsored by Kraft Foods, it was seen three weeks out of every four and was pre-empted for Perry Como's Kraft Music Hall specials once monthly. Later syndicated under the title Crisis, it was one of the few suspense series telecast in color at the time. Because of the diverse nature of the storylines, this library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror, the Television Drama and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

      This evening I created a new Sheena Queen of the Jungle Library with twelve episodes so far. Sheena debuted in Joshua B. Power's British magazine Wags #1, in 1937. She was created by Will Eisner and S. M. "Jerry" Iger. Model Irish McCalla portrayed Sheena in a 26-episode TV series aired in first-run syndication from 1955 to 1956. McCalla told a newspaper interviewer she was discovered by Nassour Studios while throwing a bamboo spear on a Malibu, California beach, famously adding, "I couldn't act, but I could swing through the trees". I have some more of these bookmarked but I want to wait and see of they stay up on YouTube before I post any more of them here. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure Catalog.

      7/18/15 - Today I created a Walt Disney Catalog with thirty-seven episodes of the Disneyland TV Show, which includes episodes of various Disney series' such as: The Swamp Fox, Texas John Slaughter and The Nine Lives of Elfego Baca - for all of which I also created separate libraries. I also added the Adventures of Zorro Library to the new Catalog, and created separate libraries for Disney Science Films, Animated Films, Nature Films and WWII Government Sponsored Films. The Walt Disney Catalog is located in the Catalog of Stars. You can also access the other Disney series libraries separately in the appropriate Catalogs according to their genre. Walter Elias "Walt" Disney (December 5, 1901 – December 15, 1966) was an American entrepreneur, cartoonist, animator, voice actor, and film producer. As a prominent figure within the American animation industry and throughout the world, he is regarded as a cultural icon, known for his influence and contributions to entertainment during the 20th century. As a Hollywood business mogul, he and his brother Roy O. Disney co-founded The Walt Disney Company. As an animator and entrepreneur, Disney was particularly noted as a filmmaker and a popular showman, as well as an innovator in animation and theme park design. During his lifetime, he won 22 Academy Awards and received four honorary Academy Awards from a total of 59 nominations, including a record of four in one year, giving him more Oscar awards and nominations than any other individual in history.

      7/16/15 - Today I created a new McHale's Navy Library, with the first seventeen episodes of the series. McHale's Navy (1962-1966) was a wacky military service comedy series set in the Pacific theatre of World War II (for the last season the setting changed to the European theater in Italy) and focused on the loony misfit crew of PT-73, wily boys with crazy antics, led by Lieutenant Commander Quinton McHale, played by Ernest Borgnine. I will admit that I loved this series as a teenager. I have had it bookmarked for almost a year now, and finally decided to take a chance and start posting the episodes. I have the entire series bookmarked, by the way, so many more to come. The new library is located in the Funny Guys and the Action and Adventure Catalogs.

      7/14/15 - Tonight I created a new It's About Time Library, with twenty-one of the 26 episodes of the complete series, at the suggestion of frequent correspondent, Keith Walters. It's About Time (1966–1967) is about two astronauts, Mac (Frank Aletter) and Hector (Jack Mullaney), traveling faster than the speed of light, which results in their being sent back in time to prehistoric days. There, they have to adjust to living with a cave family led by Shad (Imogene Coca) and Gronk (Joe E. Ross). Their children were 18-year-old Mlor (Mary Grace) and 14-year-old Breer (Pat Cardi). The chief of the tribe, Boss (Cliff Norton) and his right-hand man Clon (Mike Mazurki) were always suspicious of the astronauts. I have to admit that I had never heard of this show, but in fact, it has an all-star cast, and I imagine I might have noticed it if it hadn't come on TV right after I graduated from high school and was totally absorbed in finding my way in the World as a musician. The new library is located in the Whacky Dames, the Funny Guys, and the Family Drama and Comedies Catalogs.

      7/13/15 - Yesterday and today I have been doing some more cosmetic work with the Front Door and the Main Library Pages. I have re-arranged some of the thumbnails on the Main Library page to better reflect the relative importance of the various categories of productions represented by the Library Catalogs (in my own humble opinion, of course). I also changed the wording on the Library Page Banner graphic to read "Classic Television and Movie Library", in an attempt to stress the "library concept" behind the site. I also added a prominent instruction to folks using Tablets and other electronic devices to use their device in the Landscape Mode when viewing the site. My work schedule on the site is kind of "hit and miss" this time of the year because of my musical pursuits. Last week I had rehearsals with two different ensembles, then played gigs with each of them on Thursday and Saturday. I have another engagement coming up on Wednesday afternoon. Anyway, I did find time to add three Pilot shows to the Benny Hill Show Library. I have about 45 more of the regular season episodes, from 1970 to 1984, bookmarked, but they are fairly new uploads so I don't trust them to last - I will keep my eye on them and hope to add them too the site eventually.

      7/10/15 - Today I added sixteen episodes to the December Bride Library, which lost three episodes a few days ago. None of the sixteen added episodes were the same as the ones we lost. December Bride (1954-1959) was an American sitcom that aired on the CBS television network, adapted from the original CBS radio network series. December Bride centered around the adventures of Lily Ruskin, a spry widow played by Spring Byington, who was not, in fact, a "December" (rather old) bride but very much desired to become one if the right man would come along. The new library is located in the Whacky Dames Catalog and the Family Drama and Comedies Catalog.

      7/8/15 - Today I got a tip from a regular correspondent, Keith Walters, about a short lived series starring Jerry Van Dyke (brother of Dick) called Accidental Family. I subsequently found ten episodes of the sixteen episode series and created a library to house them. Accidental Family is an American sitcom broadcast on NBC during the first part of the 1967-68 U.S. television season. The series starred Jerry Van Dyke as a widowed comedian, Jerry Webster, who bought a farm in the San Fernando Valley to serve as a place for him to raise his son, Sandy, when he was not touring. When he was on the road, Sandy was under the care of the farm's manager, divorceé Sue Kramer (Lois Nettleton), who had a daughter the same age as Webster's son. The program consistently lost in the Nielsen ratings to both the CBS Friday Night Movies and the ABC Western The Guns of Will Sonnett and was cancelled at midseason as a result. It was initially replaced by the first prime-time run of the game show Hollywood Squares.

      7/7/15 - Today I created a new Benny Hill Show Library with seven episodes of the long running comedy show, plus five TV specials. Alfred Hawthorne Hill, known by his stage name Benny Hill (21 January 1924 – 20 April 1992), was an English comedian and actor, best remembered for his long-running television programm The Benny Hill Show. The Benny Hill Show aired in various incarnations between January 15, 1955 and May 30, 1991 in over 140 countries. The show focused on sketches that were full of slapstick, mime, parody, and double-entendre. Thames Television cancelled production of the show in 1989 due to declining ratings and large production costs. The show often used undercranking and sight gags to create what he called "live animation". The show typically closed with a sped-up chase scene involving him and often a crew of scantily-clad women (usually with Hill being the one chased, due to silly predicaments that he himself caused), a takeoff on the stereotypical Keystone Kops chase scenes. Hill also composed and sang patter songs and often entertained his audience with lengthy high-speed double-entendre rhymes and songs, which he recited or sang in a single take. I have more than 60 episodes of the show bookmarked - but most of them are fairly recent uploads, no more than 2 months in most cases, so I am going to hold off a while to see if they last before building more player pages. The new Catalog is located in the Funny Guys Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      7/2/15 - Today I added the final eighteen episodes to the Dangerous Assignment library, thus completing the series. Donlevy starred as US special agent Steve Mitchell in 39 episodes of the 1952 TV series "Dangerous Assignment". Mitchell received assignments to exotic locales involving international intrigue from 'The Commissioner' played by Hubert Butterfield. This library is located in the Brian Donlevy Catalog.

      6/30/15 - Today, to honor the passing of comedian, Jack Carter, I created a new Jack Carter Catalog with five of his Comedy Routines from various shows, ten of his Game Show Appearances and four complete Variety Programs featuring Jack Carter performances (all of which were already on the site). I will be looking for more. Jack Chakrin (June 24, 1922 – June 28, 2015), known by his stage name Jack Carter, was an American comedian, actor and host. Brooklyn-born Carter had a long-running comedy act similar to fellow rapid-paced contemporaries Milton Berle and Morey Amsterdam. He hosted an early television variety program called Cavalcade of Stars on the DuMont Network. He was lured to NBC to host his own program titled The Jack Carter Show. Carter recommended Jackie Gleason take his place as host of Cavalcade of Stars. The Jack Carter Show appeared under the banner of the Saturday Night Revue, NBC's two and a half hour Saturday night programming slot. Carter hosted his show for one hour each week followed by the ninety minute Your Show of Shows starring Sid Caesar, Imogene Coca, Carl Reiner and Howard Morris. He remained friends with Sid Caesar his entire life, performing the eulogy at his funeral. The new Catalog is located in the Funny Guys Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      6/29/15 - Today I created a new Superman Radio Show library with the first twenty-one episodes of the series. I have 92 of these available so many more to come! The Adventures of Superman was a long-running radio serial that originally aired from 1940 to 1951, adapted from the DC Comics character. The serial came to radio as a syndicated show on New York City's WOR on February 12, 1940. On Mutual, it was broadcast from August 31, 1942, to June 24, 1949. The series shifted to ABC Saturday evenings on October 29, 1949, and then returned to afternoons, twice-a-week on June 5, 1950, continuing on ABC until March 1, 1951. In all, 2068 original episodes of The Adventures of Superman were aired on American radio. The new library is located in the Old Time Radio and Superman Catalogs.

      6/28/15 - Today I added six more episodes to the Dangerous Assignment library, starring Brian Donlevy, and then decided to look around for other Donlevy vehicles and found eleven of his Feature Films. So I have created a new Brian Donlevy Catalog. Waldo Brian Donlevy (February 9, 1901 – April 5, 1972), later known as Brian Donlevy, was an American actor, noted for playing dangerous tough guys from the 1930s to the 1960s. He usually appeared in supporting roles. Among his best-known films are Beau Geste (1939) and The Great McGinty (1940). For his role as Sergeant Markoff in Beau Geste he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. Donlevy starred as US special agent Steve Mitchell in 39 episodes of the 1952 TV series "Dangerous Assignment". Mitchell received assignments to exotic locales involving international intrigue from 'The Commissioner' played by Hubert Butterfield. His obituary in The Times newspaper in the United Kingdom stated that "any consideration of the American 'film noir' of the 1940s would be incomplete without him". The new Catalog is located in the Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      6/27/15 - Today I added sixteen episodes to the Password Library. Password (1961-1975) was an American television game show which was created by Bob Stewart for Goodson-Todman Productions. The host was Allen Ludden. Two teams, each consisting of one celebrity player and one "civilian" contestant, competed. The word to be conveyed (the "password") was given to one player on each team and was shown to the studio audience and home viewers (also they get to hear it). These episodes are all from the original version of the game show. Located in the Password Catalog which is in the Game Show Catalog.

      6/24/15 - Tonight I added six episodes to the Dangerous Assignment library and also arranged the library into proper order and added plot summary and air date information to the player pages. In Dangerous Assignment, "The Commissioner" sent US special agent Steve Mitchell to exotic locales where he encounters adventure and international intrigue, all played out using extreme violence. Brian Donlevy played the lead character in Dangerous Assignment between 1949 and 1954, taking the series to TV in 1952. This library is located in the Action and Adventure and Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

      6/23/15 - After I put together the George Reeves Catalog a few days ago, I received an email from my friend, Dennis Carter, who mentioned that the mysterious circumstances surrounding the death of Reeves by gunshot wound and the subsequent revelations of the various theories about what had actually happened, brought to mind all of controversey surrounding another famous gunshot death - that of our 35th President, John F. Kennedy. I realized immediately that he was right about that, and decided to act on his suggestion that I consider creating a JFK Assassination videos library. I also realized that any such undertaking would need to focus on more than just the circumstances of Kennedy's death, so to that end I have created a John F. Kennedy Catalog, containing the afore mentioned Assassination Library, plus libraries pertaining to Kennedy's Speeches , The Kennedy/Nixon Debates and a library containing Documentary Features. I was a 15 year old freshman in High School when the President was shot in Dallas - I heard the news over the school PA system. The principal, who made the announcement, was all choked up as he dismissed classes for the remainder of the day. There is such a wealth of material, particularly in regards to the assassination, that I have simply established the catalog with ten or so videos in each of the four libraries. These libraries will expand exponentially in the months to come. Note: The Assassination Catalog has twenty videos so far and barely scratches the surface of the Conspiracy Theorists that are out there to this day. I have confined the first few vidoes to contemporary news accounts of the day, and the first of the assassination documentaries such as Mark Lane's 1966 "Rush to Judgement" and David Wolper's "Four Days in November". As this catalog expands, it will begin to contain more of the various Conspiracy Theories that abound on the subject. I might add that I spent a lot of time in my young adult years pouring over the various accounts, reading books and watching films that attempted to lay out "the truth" about what happened that day. One regret I have is that I was unable to find any of the Mort Sahl TV shows, examining the Zapruder Film in detail, that first sparked my interest in the subject in the 1970s. The new catalog is located in News/Documentary (Reality) Programs, and the Catalog of Stars.

      6/18/15 - Today, at the suggestion of a frequent correspondent, Dennis Carter, I created a George Reeves Catalog, including the Adventures of Superman library, as well as a George Reeves Film library with nine feature films, a George Reeves Other Appearances library with five of his appearances in other television shows, and a George Reeves Documentary library with six George Reeves documentary films (and/or videos). That last library proved to be a bit frustrating becauze three of the videos had no air date or other information that I could track down. George Reeves (January 5, 1914 – June 16, 1959) was an American actor known for his role as Superman in the 1950s television program Adventures of Superman. Reeves' film career began in 1939 when he was cast as Stuart Tarleton (incorrectly listed in the film's credits as Brent Tarleton), one of Scarlett O'Hara's suitors in Gone with the Wind. It was a minor role, but Fred Crane and he, both in brightly dyed red hair as "the Tarleton Twins", were in the film's opening scenes. Reeves made many appearances in movies, usually in supporting roles. His death at age 45 from a gunshot remains a polarizing topic; the official finding was suicide, but some believe he was murdered or the victim of an accidental shooting. The new catalog can be accessed via the Action and Adventure, the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog, the Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      6/16/15 - Last night and today I spent most of my time doing site maintenance - specifically in the Feature Films Catalog. There are 15 basic Feature Films Catalogs - meaning the different types of films - Drama, Comedy, Musical, Western, Action/Adventure, SciFi/Horror, etc. Some of them are cross populated - Western Films are also included in the Action/Adventure catalog, for instance. Of course, there are many more sub-catalogs included in the Feature Films catalog, but the others are all references to specific actors, characters or creators. I am pleased to report that the vast majority of the Catalog is still intact. I only had to eliminate a few films (I was able to restore most of the dead pages easily). Mostly I worked on cosmetic repairs - fixing typos, discovering and repairing instances where I had accidently substituted the wrong decsription or other errors that are largely attributable to the fact that I use previous pages as templates for future pages. Sometimes I get into the rhythm of creating mulitiple pages and just make careless mistakes, which is why I always try to go back and double-check my results. I also did some work in the Television Drama Catalog, adding two episodes, Where You Loved Me and The Deceiving Eye to the Stage 7 library and The Night America Trembled, to the Studio One library. Finally, I added two episodes to the (very sparce) People's Choice library, located in the Jackie Cooper Catalog inside the Funny Guys Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      6/15/15 - Today I happen to stumble across my The Donna Reed Show library, and realized that it has been more than a year-and-a-half since the last time I added anything too it! So I added the all thirty-eight episodes of Season 2. About half of the series (152 episodes) is on Hulu (sorry about the commercials) so many more to come. The Donna Reed Show was an American situation comedy starring Donna Reed as the middle-class housewife Donna Stone. Carl Betz co-stars as her pediatrician husband Dr. Alex Stone, and Shelley Fabares and Paul Petersen as their teenage children, Mary and Jeff. The show originally aired on ABC from September 24, 1958 to March 19, 1966. The library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

      6/14/15 - Today I added all twenty-six episodes of Season 3 to The Big Valley library. I have to admit that I have never seen this show. It aired in the late 1960s when I was spending most of my time on the road with touring bands. I notice that the plots for a lot of these shows involve traveling - so maybe I should have been watching :-) The Big Valley was an American western television series which ran on ABC. The show stars Barbara Stanwyck, as the widow of a wealthy nineteenth century California rancher. The TV series was based loosely on the Hill Ranch, which was located at the western edge of Calaveras County, not far from Stockton. I have all of the series episodes bookmarked (4 Seasons), so one more season to go. This library is located in the Western Shows and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs.

      6/13/15 - Today I added twenty-two episodes to my Captain Midnight Library, which expands the library by a factor of 8 (twenty-five total). This is pretty special too me because not only is this one of (if not the first) library I ever created on the site, but it is definitely the first television program I ever watched. I was barely 6 years old when this came on and I watched it religiously - got into the cross promotion toys - the whole nine yards. Captain Midnight (1954-1955), produced by Screen Gems and starring Richard Webb, began September 9, 1954 on CBS with Ovaltine as the sponsor, 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". Also created a new Captain Midnight Theatrical Serial (1942) Library with all fifteen Chapters of the serial. Then I created a Captain Midnight Catalog to house the two libraries. This Catalog is located in the Kid Shows, the Action and Adventure, the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalogs and the Catalog of Stars.

      6/12/15 - Today I read that Christopher Lee passed away a few days ago, so I decided to create a Christopher Lee Catalog, including a Christopher Lee Film Library, with fourteen of his films, and a second library of his Other Appearance, including six television shows and three documentary films. Sir Christopher Frank Carandini Lee, CBE, CStJ (27 May 1922 – 7 June 2015) was an English actor, singer and author. With a career spanning nearly 70 years, Lee initially portrayed villains and became best known for his role as Count Dracula in a sequence of Hammer Horror films. His other film roles include Francisco Scaramanga in the James Bond film The Man with the Golden Gun (1974), Saruman in The Lord of the Rings film trilogy (2001–2003) and The Hobbit film trilogy (2012–2014), and Count Dooku/Darth Tyranus in the final two films of the Star Wars prequel trilogy (2002 and 2005) and Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008). The new catalog can be accessed via the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog, the Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      6/9/15 - Today I added ten episodes to the The Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok Library, greatly expanding the library, which previously only had four episodes. The Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok (1951-1958) starred Guy Madison as the legendary Old West lawman (in real life, also a gunfighter) United States Marshal James Butler "Wild Bill" Hickok, and Andy Devine as his comedy sidekick, Jingles P. Jones. The library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Western Shows Catalogs.

      6/8/15 - Today I added eighteen episodes to the Suspense Library, bringing us to the end of the 4th Season. Suspense (1949–1954) was an American television anthology series that ran on CBS Television from 1949 to 1954. Live plays featuring people who were in dangerous and threatening situations. Like many early television shows, the show was broadcast live from New York City. This library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror, the Television Drama and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs. One more season to add.

      6/7/15 - Today I created the final (fourth) version of the Password game show library. Million Dollar Password was an updated version of the game show Password on CBS, which was hosted by Regis Philbin and ran from June 1, 2008 to June 14, 2009. Based upon a format created by Bob Stewart for Goodson-Todman, FremantleMedia produced the program. I have ten episodes to start. There are doubtless many more of these later iterations episodes available, but I will be concentrating initilly on expanding the original version library for historical purposes (and because I find the stars of olden days generally more interesting then the those that appear in these later incarnations). Located in the Password Catalog which is in the Game Show Catalog.

      6/6/15 - Today I added all thirty episodes of Season 2 to The Big Valley library. The Big Valley was an American western television series which ran on ABC. The show stars Barbara Stanwyck, as the widow of a wealthy nineteenth century California rancher. The TV series was based loosely on the Hill Ranch, which was located at the western edge of Calaveras County, not far from Stockton. I have all of the series episodes bookmarked (4 Seasons), so we are only about half done. This library is located in the Western Shows and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs.

      6/5/15 - Yet more Password - this time a new Super Password Library with fifteen episodes Password Plus and Super Password were American TV game shows that aired separately between 1979 and 1989. While elements of the original game show format Password were modified for these two programs, both Password Plus and Super Password had the same general format with only subtle differences between the two. Password Plus and Super Password aired on NBC, and were taped on Stage 3 at NBC Studios in Burbank, California. Password Plus was a Mark Goodson-Bill Todman Production and Super Password was a Mark Goodson Production. Password Plus aired from January 8, 1979 to March 26, 1982, for 801 episodes (one of which was left unaired until airing on GSN as a rerun in the mid-1990s). The program also won a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Game Show in 1982. Located in the Password Catalog which is in the Game Show Catalog.

      6/1/15 - Today I created a new Arthur Godfrey Catalog with four episodes of the Arthur Godfrey Show, two episodes of Arthur Godfrey's Talent Scouts and eight Other Arthur Godfrey Appearances. Arthur Morton Godfrey (August 31, 1903 – March 16, 1983) was an American radio and television broadcaster and entertainer who was sometimes introduced by his nickname, The Old Redhead. No TV personality in 1950s America enjoyed more clout or fame than Godfrey until an infamous on-air incident (Godfrey fired singer Julius La Rosa while the cameras were rolling!) undermined his folksy image and triggered a gradual decline. At the peak of his success, Godfrey helmed two CBS-TV weekly series and a daily 90-minute television mid-morning show, but, by the early 1960s, his presence had been reduced to hosting the occasional TV special. The new catalog is located in both the Funny Guys Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      5/31/15 - More Password - this morning I created a new Password Plus Library with sixteen episodes from 1979. Password Plus and Super Password were American TV game shows that aired separately between 1979 and 1989. While elements of the original game show format Password were modified for these two programs, both Password Plus and Super Password had the same general format with only subtle differences between the two. Password Plus and Super Password aired on NBC, and were taped on Stage 3 at NBC Studios in Burbank, California. Password Plus was a Mark Goodson-Bill Todman Production and Super Password was a Mark Goodson Production. Password Plus aired from January 8, 1979 to March 26, 1982, for 801 episodes (one of which was left unaired until airing on GSN as a rerun in the mid-1990s). The program also won a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Game Show in 1982. Since this is the second Password Library, I decided to create a new Password Catalog to house the two libraries - located in the Game Show Catalog.

      5/30/15 - Tonight I created a new Password Library with sixteen episodes from 1961 to 1963. Password (1961-1975) was an American television game show which was created by Bob Stewart for Goodson-Todman Productions. The host was Allen Ludden. Two teams, each consisting of one celebrity player and one "civilian" contestant, competed. The word to be conveyed (the "password") was given to one player on each team and was shown to the studio audience and home viewers (also they get to hear it). These episodes are all from the original version of the game show. As the years went on their were four iterations of the game that ran all the way up until 2009. I have dozens of episodes of all four versions of the program and I will be building separate libraries for each version. This library is surrently located in the Game Show Catalog. Eventually there will be a Password catalog there.

      5/29/15 - Today I added sixteen episodes to Season 2 of The Avengers Library. Before this I had only found 2 episodes of that season. I have recently bookmarked some Season 3 episodes (of which I have previously had none) and also mulitple episodes from the 3 remaining seasons, so look for this library to expand exponentially. The Avengers (not to be confused with the Marvel comic book characters that went by the same title) was a spy-fi British television series created in the 1960s. The series initially focused on Dr. David Keel (Ian Hendry) and his assistant John Steed (Patrick Macnee). Hendry left after the first season and Steed became the main character, partnered with a succession of assistants, mostly female. The Avengers library is located in the Action and Adventure, Television Drama and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

      5/28/15 - Today I added twenty-five episodes to the William Tell Library. Including the six episodes I already had, this gives us 31 of the 37 episodes of the complete series. William Tell was a British swashbuckler adventure series, first broadcast on the ITV network in 1958, and produced by ITC Entertainment. It is set in the period of the original foundation of the Old Swiss Confederacy in the early 14th century. According to the legend, Tell—an expert marksman with the crossbow—assassinated Gessler, a tyrannical reeve of Habsburg Austria positioned in Altdorf, Uri. Along with Arnold Winkelried, Tell is a central figure in Swiss patriotism as it was constructed during the Restoration of the Confederacy after the Napoleonic era. This library is located in both the Action and Adventure and the Historical Drama Catalogs.

      5/24/15 - Tonight I added six episodes of The Kate Smith Hour to the Kate Smith Library, located in the Musical Programs Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. Kathryn Elizabeth "Kate" Smith (May 1, 1907 – June 17, 1986) was an American singer, an alto, best known for her rendition of Irving Berlin's "God Bless America". Smith had a radio, television, and recording career spanning five decades, which reached its pinnacle in the 1940s. Smith performed in The Kate Smith Hour from 1950 through 1954, hosting until 1953 in the late afternoon hour of 4:00 pm ET. At that hour, she had a following of many children.

      5/23/15 - Today I added two episodes to the Texaco Star Theater and came to the realization that, although this library has been on the site almost since the beginning, as it turns out I never created a link too it from any of the catalogs! So I have remedied that situation by putting in both the Variety Shows and the Milton Berle catalogs. Texaco Star Theatre was an American comedy-variety show, broadcast on radio from 1938 to 1949 and telecast from 1948 to 1956. It was one of the first successful examples of American television broadcasting, remembered as the show that gave Milton Berle the nickname "Mr. Television". Also added two episodes to the Milton Berle Show library and six episodes to the Other Milton Berle Appearances library. Milton Berle (July 12, 1908 – March 27, 2002) was an American comedian and actor. As the host of NBC's Texaco Star Theater (1948–55), he was the first major American television star and was known to millions of viewers as "Uncle Miltie" during TV's golden age.

      5/21/15 - Tonight I created a new Stage Show library with five episodes so far. Stage Show (1954-1956) was hosted on alternate weeks by big band leaders and brothers Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey. Produced by Jackie Gleason, the CBS-TV show included the first national television appearances by Elvis Presley in January 1956. My personal hero, Bobby Darin, also made his national TV debut on the program in early 1956, singing "Rock Island Line". The show's final telecast was September 18, 1956. The new library can be found in both the Musical Programs, and the Variety Shows Catalogs. Also added three episodes to the Dinah Shore Show, also located in the Musical Programs Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. I wanted to mention that going forward, for the next few months, my activity here will likely diminish. For those who are nor aware of it, I am a professional entertainer and live on the Mendocino Coast of California, which is a very tourist oriented area. As we move into the summer season, I will be more and more occupied with my "nightly day job".

      5/19/15 - This morning I added Season 4 (thirty episodes) to the Rawhide library. This library vanished a couple of weeks ago, but I was able to restore it late last night plus add two episodes that were missing from the original collection. 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.

      5/18/15 - This morning I added all twenty-six episodes of the Season 3 to the Wanted: Dead or Alive library, thus completing the series. 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. Please Note: Some of these videos have pretty poor image and/or audio quality. It isn't so bad that you can't make out what is going on, but it can be a bit annoying. This afternoon I stumbled across my Green Acres library and realized that it has been over a year since I last updated it. So I added twenty-six episodes, which takes us too the 17th episode of Season 2. 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. The new library is available via the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

      5/17/15 - Today I created a new The Big Valley library with all thirty episodes of the Season 1 to start. The Big Valley was an American western television series which ran on ABC. The show stars Barbara Stanwyck, as the widow of a wealthy nineteenth century California rancher. The TV series was based loosely on the Hill Ranch, which was located at the western edge of Calaveras County, not far from Stockton. I have all of the series episodes bookmarked (4 Seasons), so many more to come. The new library is located in the Western Shows and the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalogs.

      5/16/15 - Today I added twenty-six episodes to the Science Fiction Theatre library, thus completing the library with all the episodes intact. 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. For those of you who may have already watched the episodes I had before this, the newly added episodes are:

      Signals from the Heart
      The Long Sleep
      The Green Bomb
      Bullet Proof
      The Unguided Missile

      5/15/15 - Today I gave in to my obesession with beautiful blond singers and updated both the Dinah Shore Show and Rosemary Clooney Show libraries. I added 5 episodes to the former, and 4 episodes to the latter. I was always drawn to these "sexy canaries", imagining what it would be like to go on stage and perform with one of them. I finally came pretty close to experiencing that fantasy when I did a show last November with the Dorian May Little Big Band out in Lake County and performed several duets with the lovely miss Sarah Ryan. I got to make "sexist jokes" (that were on me), and made a fool out of myself by swooning over her (on purpose, of course). It was a lot of fun. I also added Dinah Shore to the Catalog of Stars - I thought I already had...

      5/14/15 - Today I added Season 3 to the It Takes a Thief library, thus completing the series. 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.

      5/13/15 - Today I realized that I hadn't revisited my Mysteries and Scandals library in almost a year, so I added eight episodes, including (listed by subject names):

      Lana Turner
      James Dean
      Jayne Mansfield
      Bugsy Siegel
      Jean Harlow
      Charlie Chaplin
      Bela Lugosi
      More to come! This library is located in the News/Documentary (Reality) Programs Catalog.

      I also added the final eight episodes (all that I have found so far, thanks Bob!) to the Mister Peepers library.

      5/11/15 - Tonight I added five more episodes to the new Mister Peepers library, my thanks go out to Bob Kaye for tracking down 14 more episodes for me and letting me know about them via Facebook. More to come.

      5/9/15 - Today I started work on my new Les Paul Catalog by adding four episodes to the Les Paul & Mary Ford Show Library, then creating a Les Paul & Mary Ford Other TV Appearances Library with four videos so far, and a Les Paul Concerts and TV Appearances Library with eight videos so far. I will be adding shows to all three libraries as I find them. The new catalog is located in both the Musical Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      5/8/15 - This morning I created one more library to include in the Wally Cox Catalog. The Adventures of Hiram Holliday was an American adventure sitcom that aired on NBC from October 3, 1956 to February 27, 1957. Starring Wally Cox in the title role, the series is based on the 1939 novel of the same name by Paul Gallico. The series is similar to the book, and focuses on the adventures of a newspaper proofreader who through years of secret practice has gained James Bond-like skills in many forms of physical combat, shooting, and in activities as diverse as rock climbing and scuba diving. The proofreader, Hiram Holliday (Cox), was revealed to be muscular when stripped. The starting gimmick of the series was that Holliday had inserted a comma in a news story which saved the publisher a small fortune in a trial. The grateful publisher rewarded Holliday with a trip around the world, which set the scene for him to solve crimes and thwart foreign spies in every port of call he visited. The series was hampered by a low budget which did not permit convincing recreations of the different exotic foreign locations featured in each episode. I have eight episodes of the 24 episode series. I hope to find more, but it is possible that these are the only one that survive.

      This evening I created a new Rosemary Clooney Catalog with ten episodes of The Rosemary Clooney Show and sixteen Rosemary Clooney Musical Shorts of individual performances. 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. The new Catalog id located in the Located in the Musical Programs Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      5/6/15 - Today I created a Wally Cox Catalog with twelve episodes of his first starring TV role in Mister Peepers, I hope to find more but am almost certain that these 12 are the only episodes still in existance. Also included are twelve Other Wally Cox appearances, including the pilot episodes of Mission: Impossible and It Takes a Thief, several episodes each from What's My Line?, Hollywood Squares and Bob Hope TV Specials, and some outtakes from the unfinished 1962 Marilyn Monroe film, Something's Got to Give. Wallace Maynard Cox (December 6, 1924 – February 15, 1973) was an American comedian and actor, particularly associated with the early years of television in the United States. He appeared in the U.S. television series Mr. Peepers (1952–1955), plus several other popular shows, and as a character actor in over 20 films. Cox was the voice of the popular animated canine superhero Underdog, another new library with twenty videos, including both the Original and the Syndicated Introduction cartoons that opened each program. Although often cast as a meek milquetoast, he was actually quite athletic as well as a military veteran. He married three times and was best friends with Marlon Brando. The new catalog is located in both the Funny Guys Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      5/5/15 - Today I expanded my Range Rider Library from nine to thirty episodes. I also added Season, Episode, Air Dates and Plot Summaries where I could (the latter two catagories were very hard to come by). The Range Rider is an American Western television series that aired in syndication. A single lost episode surfaced and was broadcast in 1959. The Range Rider was also broadcast on British television during the 1960s, and in Melbourne, Australia during the 1950s. Jock Mahoney, later star of CBS's Yancy Derringer, played the title character in seventy-nine black-and-white half-hour episodes, along with partner Dick West, played by Dick Jones, later star of the syndicated series Buffalo Bill Jr. The character had no name other than Range Rider. His reputation for fairness, fighting ability, and accuracy with his guns was known far and wide, even by Indians. Mahoney towered over Jones, conveying the idea that Dick West was a youth rather than a full-grown adult. This library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Western Shows Catalogs.

      5/4/15 - Today I created a new Bob Newhart Show Library with twenty-four episodes, which brings us too the end of Season 1, to start. The Bob Newhart Show was an American situation comedy produced by MTM Enterprises, which aired 142 half-hour episodes on CBS from September 16, 1972, to April 1, 1978. Comedian Bob Newhart portrayed a psychologist having to deal with his patients and fellow office workers. The show was filmed before a live audience. The show centers on Robert Hartley, Ph.D. (Newhart), a Chicago psychologist. It divides most of its action between the character's work and his home life, with Hartley's supportive (though occasionally sarcastic) wife Emily (Suzanne Pleshette), and their friendly but inept neighbor, airline navigator Howard Borden (Bill Daily). At the medical office where Hartley has his psychology practice are Jerry Robinson, D.D.S. (Peter Bonerz), an orthodontist who also has a practice on the floor, and their joke-loving receptionist, Carol Kester (Marcia Wallace), as well as a number of other doctors who appear occasionally. These are from Hulu (sorry about the commercials) and the first three Seasons (72 episodes) are available, so many more to come. The new libary is located in both the Funny Guys and the Family Comedies and Drama Catalogs.

      5/3/14 - A few days ago I stumbled onto a YouTube channel that had all of the episodes of Have Gun Will Travel library, including the four episodes (three from Season 2 and one from Season 4) that I wasn't able to find during the restoration I undertook a few months back. I happily went over to the library and discovered to my dismay that my source for about half of the series had been taken down, thus eliminating about 110 of the 225 episodes that make up the series. Over the last few days I have been restoring the library, including the missing episodes and can now say that I have the entire series intact for the first time this year. As I have mentioned before, this is one of, if not the best "thinking man" western series', in my humble opinion, and is one of my favorite TV series'. I can't recommend it highly enough.

      4/30/15 - Today I began restoring The Millionaire Library today with fourteen episodes to start. 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. The new library is located in the Television Drama Catalog.

      Meanwhile, over at Solie's Wrestling Videos, I added twenty-one more chapters to the WWF vs. USWA Library giving us all 79 chapters of the story. In 1992 the USWA began a talent exchange with the WWF, which saw Jerry Lawler sign on to Vince McMahon's federation, while several high profile WWF stars appeared in the USWA. The full playlist is displayed on the Main WWF vs. USWA Library page - followed by links to the individual Chapters.

      4/29/15 - Today I added thirty episodes to the Rawhide library, which takes us too the end of the 3rd Season. 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. Tonight I restored the ten episodes of the Hennesey Library that vanished a couple months ago when the Public Domain YouTube channel was taken down. Hennesey was an American military sitcom/drama television series that aired on CBS from 1959 to 1962, starring Jackie Cooper. Located in the Jackie Cooper Cataog. Cooper played a United States Navy physician, Lt. Charles J. "Chick" Hennesey, with Abby Dalton as Navy nurse Lt. Martha Hale. In the story line, they are assigned to the hospital at the U.S. Naval Station in San Diego, California.

      4/28/15 - Today I added twenty-three episodes to the The Professionals library, which brings us to the end of Season 4. The Professionals (1977–1983) was a British crime-action television drama series produced by Avengers Mk1 Productions and London Weekend Television that aired on the ITV network. In all, 57 episodes were produced. This series chronicled the lives of Bodie and Doyle, top agents for Britain's CI5 (Criminal Intelligence 5), and their controller, George Cowley. The mandate of CI5 was to fight terrorism and similar high-profile crimes. One more Season to go. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs. I also added five episodes to the Dinah Shore Show library. Located in the Musical Programs Catalog.

      4/25/15 - Today I worked on a few different libraries. My main project was creating a new Les Paul & Mary Ford Show Library, with eight episodes of the show. Les Paul and his wife, Mary Ford were very successful recording artists, selling more than 6 million copies. As a professional guitarist, and an audio engineer in my own right, Les Paul is one of my personal heroes. A pioneer of the solid-body electric guitar - convincing Gibson to market such an instrument with his name on it in 1948, he was also one of the first recording artists to successfully use multi-track recording techniques on his records, and is credited as being one of the inventors of that technology. The Les Paul & Mary Ford Show (aka Les Paul & Mary Ford At Home), sponsored by Listerine, was widely syndicated during 1954–55 and was only five minutes long (one or two songs) on film and therefore used as a brief interlude or fill-in on programming schedules. Since Les created the entire show himself, including audio and video, he maintained the original recordings and was in the process of restoring them to up-to-date quality at the time of his death in 2009. I have found a few more of these shows and several compilations on YouTube, plus there are many recorded live shows from the the late 2000's, so I will be creating a Les Paul Catalog with at least three libraries in the not-to-distant future. Stay Tuned. Located in the Musical Programs Catalog.

      I also added the 29th episode to the Man with a Camera Library, thus completing the series. In this series Charles Bronson portrayed Mike Kovac, a former World War II combat photographer freelancing in New York City, who specialized in getting the photographs that other lensmen could not. He usually assisted newspapers, insurance companies, the police and private individuals, all of whom wanted a filmed record of an event. This was Bronson's first starring role on TV. This library s located in the Action and Adventure and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs. This is another instance where my plan is to create a Catalog for Charles Bronson TV and Movie appearances in the near future.

      Finally, I added two episodes to the George Gobel Show Library, bringing the number in the library up to a grand total of 6! George Leslie Gobel (May 20, 1919 – February 24, 1991) was an American comedian and actor. He was best known as the star of his own weekly NBC television show, The George Gobel Show, which ran from 1954 to 1960 (the last season on CBS, alternating with The Jack Benny Program). This library can be found in the Funny Guys Catalog.

      4/23/15 - Today I added sixteen episodes to the Are You Being Served? Library, bringing us to the end of Season 8. Are You Being Served? (1972–1985) was a BBC television sitcom. The series follows the misadventures and mishaps of the staff, as well as various interludes with customers (portrayed by popular and well-known British actors in guest appearances), of the retail ladies' and gentlemen's clothing floor departments of a fictional London department store called Grace Brothers. This library can be found in both the Funny Guys and the Whacky Dames Catalogs. Two seasons to go.

      4/22/15 - Today I added eight episodes to the Dinah Shore Show library, thus doubling the size of the library. The newest additions are all for the earliest years of the series, when it ran as a weekly 15 minute live broadcast. Located in the Musical Programs Catalog.

      4/21/15 - Today I created a new I Spy library with the complete 1st Season (twenty-eight episodes) to start. I Spy (1965-1968) was an American television secret agent action adventure series about a pair of American agents facing espionage adventures with skill, humor and ingenuity, which aired on NBC. The show starred Robert Culp and Bill Cosby. The series broke ground for being the first American television drama to feature an African American actor (Bill Cosby) in one of the lead roles. Now before you say anything I want to stress that, yes, I am aware of the controversey surroundng Bill Cosby, but whether you love him or hate him, this was a great series and Cosby was really good in it, as attested too by the several Emmy awards he received for his work. These are from Hulu, sorry about the commercials. This library s located in the Action and Adventure and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs. The entire series is available so many more to come. Also revamped my Disney's Adventures of Zorro library, putting the one episode that was out of order in the correct place and then adding the standard data to the player pages. This library includes the entire series and is located in the Action and Adventure and the Western Shows Catalogs.

      4/20/15 - Today added twenty-one episodes to the It Takes a Thief library, which takes us too the end of Season 2. 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. One more season to go.

      4/18/15 - Today I re-arranged the Flash Gordon TV Show library and added the standard info. Another ancient library set to right. This library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog. I also restored Season 2 (thirty-two episodes) to the Wanted: Dead or Alive library. One season left to go. 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.

      4/17/15 - When I was working in the Mystery Catalog yesterday, I noticed that my One Step Beyond library was also out of whack, so today I added twelve episodes and then re-arranged the library and added in the standard information to all of the Player Pages. This was another of the very early libraries. 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. This library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog. Another highly recommended series.

      4/16/15 - Today, for the first time in about 4 years, I added an episode to the Tales of Tomorrow Library called Youth on Tap. While I was in there I realized that this was another of those libraries I built ages ago, and that the episodes were out of order and contained almost no information (Season and Episodes, air dates, plot summaries, etc.), so I went ahead and rearranged it and added the data. Tales of Tomorrow was an American anthology science fiction series that was performed and broadcast live on ABC from 1951 to 1953. The series was the first dramatized showcase for several authors, including Arthur C. Clarke. Other early science fiction writers whose work was reflected in the series included Fredric Brown ("The Last Man on Earth" and "Age of Peril"), Philip Wylie ("Blunder"), C.M. Kornbluth ("The Little Black Bag") and Stanley G. Weinbaum ("The Miraculous Serum"). The show was intended for adults; at a time when most science fiction productions were targeted to children. The producers wanted to blend mystery and science fiction, and emphasize fast pacing and suspense. This library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalog. I highly recommend this series.

      4/15/15 - Today I added twenty episodes to the Whirlybirds Library, which completes the library. Although one hundred eleven episodes of this syndicated show were produced between 1956 and 1959, it would appear from my research that these 56 episodes are all that still exist of the series. Rumor has it that the original masters were destroyed in a warehouse fire. These episodes are reportedly from an unauthorized VHS release by a collector about 20 years ago. Apparently the fellow had recorded them on a video cassette machine from a syndicated (partial) run. A later collector tranferred them to DVDs, which can still be bought on the web, and that is how I got hold of them. I uploaded them all to the Internet Archive a few months ago. As far as I can determine, there was never an official release of this show on any media. In the series, which debuted in the US in January 1957. Chuck and P.T. own a helicopter company that is hired to perform all types of jobs. Janet Culver was the original secretary being replaced by Helen Carter in the second season. This library is located in the Action/Adventure Catalog.

      4/13/15 - Today I added twenty-two episodes to the Rawhide library, which takes us too the end of the 2nd Season. 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.

      4/12/15 - At the suggestion of an email corrospondent (Kelly Brown), I created a new The Professionals library with twenty-four episodes, which brings us to the end of Season 2. The Professionals (1977–1983) was a British crime-action television drama series produced by Avengers Mk1 Productions and London Weekend Television that aired on the ITV network. In all, 57 episodes were produced. This series chronicled the lives of Bodie and Doyle, top agents for Britain's CI5 (Criminal Intelligence 5), and their controller, George Cowley. The mandate of CI5 was to fight terrorism and similar high-profile crimes. I have all of the episodes of this series bookmarked (I found all but one of them on Daily Motion, and the missing episode was on YouTube), so many more to come. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

      4/11/15 - Today I added Season 2 (30 episodes) to the The Addams Family library. This completes the library with all of the episodes intact.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 library can be found in the Funny Guys, Whacky Dames, Family Drama and Comedies and the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalogs.

      4/9/15 - Today I restored thirty-eight episodes to the The Untouchables Library, which included all 28 episodes of Season 3, then I went back and filled in 10 missing episodes from the first two seasons. So now the first three seasons are intact and we have one season to go. The Untouchables (1959-1963) was an American crime drama that ran on the ABC Television Network, produced by Desilu Productions. Based on the memoir of the same name by Eliot Ness and Oscar Fraley, it fictionalized Ness' experiences as a Prohibition agent, fighting crime in Chicago in the 1930s with the help of a special team of agents handpicked for their courage, moral character and incorruptibility, nicknamed the Untouchables. A powerful, hard-hitting crime drama, and a landmark police series, The Untouchables won series star Robert Stack an Emmy Award for Best Actor in a Dramatic Series in 1960. This library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog and the Action and Adventure Catalog. Also added three episodes to the Your Hit Parade Library. Your Hit Parade was an American radio and television music program that was broadcast from 1935 to 1955 on radio, and seen from 1950 to 1959 on television. It was sponsored by American Tobacco's Lucky Strike cigarettes. During this 24-year run, the show had 19 orchestra leaders and 52 singers or groups. Each Saturday evening, the program offered the most popular and bestselling songs of the week. The format involved a presentation of the top 15 songs. Later, a countdown with fanfares led to the top three finalists, with the number one song for the finale. Located in the Musical Programs Catalog.

      4/8/15 - Last night I decided to go check on my Gunsmoke Library with the idea in mind that I would start building the 11th Season...and the library is gone again! Actually I still have twelve episodes from Season 1 - but that is it. I think I am done with it. This is the 4th time I have lost the bulk of the library (the most recent incident was just under a year ago) - and I guess "4 times is the charm" (sigh). Today I added twenty-one episodes to Season 4 of the The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin Library, which completes the season until I find the remaining 5 episodes.

      4/7/15 - Today I embarked on a major expansion of the Science Fiction Theatre library, adding thirty-five episodes to complete Season 1 of the series. I have all but one episode of the complete series, so many more to come. 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.

      4/6/15 - Today I restored twenty-seven episodes to the Gale Storm Show Library. This is the same number I had previously, but they are not all the same episodes. There are 7 or 8 that weren't included in the original library, which means (of course) that there are 7 or 8 episodes from the original library that are still missing. I really love this show, so I am on an ongoing quest to expand this library. The Gale Storm Show (aka Oh Susanna) (1956-1960) was an American sitcom starring Gale Storm. The series, based on a cruise director, Susanna Pomeroy, on a ship travelling around the world, premiered on September 29, 1956, and ran until 1960 for 143 half-hour black-and-white episodes, initially on CBS and in its last year on ABC. Co-star, Zazu Pitts played Susanna's friend and ship's hairdresser, "Nugey". The series was aired under the title Oh, Susanna in syndication. This library is located in the Gale Storm Catalog, which is located in the Whacky Dames Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. Also created a new Mr. Wong Library with all six of the Mr. Wong films - five starring Boris Karloff and the sixth and final installment starring Key Luke as the enigmatic Chinese detective. In fact, all of these films were already in my Boris Karloff film library, but I decided to separate them into stand-alone library, located in the Boris Karloff Catalog, with direct links to the library also available in the Action/Adventure, Feature Films, and Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

      4/5/15 - Today I created a new My Favorite Martian Library with the first twenty-six episodes of Season 1. 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.

      This evening I expanded the December Bride Library, which unfortunately only has seven episodes, by adding six episodes of the spin-off series, Pete & Gladys (1960-1962), as a sub-library on the same page. In a popular 1950s CBS sitcom, 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 emerges as the redhaired comedienne Cara Williams. Pete is an insurance salesman, and the happy couple resides in Westwood, California. Both of these series' were VERY popular. As I mentioned before, it is really sad that so few of these episodes are available. I am adding a Pete & Gladys thumbnail, which will link to the December Bride Library in the Funny Guys, Whacky Dames, Family Drama and Comedies Catalogs.

      4/4/15 - Today I added eleven episodes to Season 1 of the Whirlybirds Library, which completes the Season until if or when I track down the 15 remaining episodes. I have 20 of these left to post so many more to come. One hundred eleven episodes of this syndicated show were produced between 1956 and 1959, debuting in the US in January 1957. Chuck and P.T. own a helicopter company that is hired to perform all types of jobs. Janet Culver was the original secretary being replaced by Helen Carter in the second season. This library is located in the Action/Adventure Catalog.

      4/3/15 - I lost a major portion of The Fugitive Library a few weeks ago, but I didn't mention it here because I had an ace in the hole. I had found a large number of episodes but had not used them right away because they were all in segments of 2 or more, meaning that I would have to make playlists in order to post them to the site. I had single segment videos for most of them, so I just kept the segmented videos as bookmarks. Since the loss happened I have been building the playlists and finally finished them all a few days ago. So today I restored all of the lost episodes and was able to add several that I didn't have before bringing us to 103 of the 120 episodes that make up the entire series. In all today, I posted thirty-eight episodes. The Fugitive (1963–1967) was an American drama series produced by QM Productions and United Artists Television that aired on ABC. David Janssen starred as Richard Kimble, a physician who was falsely convicted of his wife's murder and given the death penalty. En route to death row, Kimble's train derailed 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 pursued him relentlessly. This catalog is located in the David Janssen Catalog, which can be found in the Mystery & Crime Drama, Feature Films, Television Drama Catalogs, and the Catalog of Stars.

      4/2/15 - Today I added nineteen episodes (15 episodes of Season 3 and 2 episodes of Season 4) to the Danger Man Library, which completes the series until I find some more of the missing episodes. Season 4, by the way, with 2 episodes, is complete. In Danger Man (1960–1962), John Drake was a special operative for NATO, specializing in security assignments against any subversive element that threatened world peace. The series featured exotic locales from all over the world, but it was relatively down-to-earth and realistic--especially when compared to its successor, "Secret Agent", which was released in the United States in 1964. Stars: Patrick McGoohan, Richard Wattis and Lionel Murton. This library is located in the Television Drama, Action and Adventure and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

      4/1/15 - Today I added all twenty-six episodes of Season 4 to the Mister Ed Library. The Mister Ed show concept was derived from a series of short stories by children's author Walter R. Brooks, which began with The Talking Horse in the September 18, 1937, issue of Liberty magazine. Brooks is otherwise best known for the Freddy the Pig series of children's novels, which likewise featured talking animals that interact with humans. The show's concept resembles that of the Francis the Talking Mule movies in which an equine title character talks, but only to one person, thus causing a variety of opportunities and frustrations. Comedian George Burns financed the original pilot for Mr Ed which was shot at his McCadden Studio in Hollywood. Scott McKay played Wilbur. Jack Benny was also involved behind the scenes. Unable to sell the show to a network, the producer decided to sell the show into syndication first. He managed to get single sponsor identification for the program on over 100 stations. The show was recast with Alan Young in the lead. Production began in November 1960. The first 26 episodes were well received enough for the show to be picked up by CBS. I have the entire series bookmarked, so two more seasons to go. This library is located in the Alan Young Catalog via the Funny Guys Catalog

      3/31/15 - Today I started restoring my Wanted: Dead or Alive library with thirty-six episodes to start. This brings us to the end of Season 1. Wanted: Dead or Alive (1958–1961) - was an American Western television series starring Steve McQueen as the bounty hunter Josh Randall. It aired on CBS for three seasons. The black-and-white program was a spin-off of a March 1958 episode of Trackdown, a 1957–59 western series starring Robert Culp. The star of this show, Steve McQueen, of course, went on to major movie stardom in very short order. Which is why the very popular series only lasted three seasons. His presence jumps right off the screen, which even I could see as an ten year old boy when the series began airing in 1958. I can't recommend it enough. Check it out! I have almost all of the episodes bookmarked, so many more to come. This library is located in the Western Shows and the Action and Adventure Catalogs.

      3/30/15 - Today I added twenty-one epiodes to the Are You Being Served? Library, bringing us to the end of Season 6. Are You Being Served? (1972–1985) was a BBC television sitcom. The series follows the misadventures and mishaps of the staff, as well as various interludes with customers (portrayed by popular and well-known British actors in guest appearances), of the retail ladies' and gentlemen's clothing floor departments of a fictional London department store called Grace Brothers. This new library can be found in both the Funny Guys and the Whacky Dames Catalogs. There are 4 Seasons yet to post, and we will have the entire series when I am done, so lots more to come! I also added four episodes to the Dinah Shore Show library, and, in a fit of silliness, added an animated GIF image to the Front Door page - now when you click on the Front Doors you get to watch them open before you are taken to the Main Library page.

      3/27/15 - Today I was able to restore twenty episodes to the Wendy and Me Library, down from the 26 I had originally, but still a sunstantial number, to which I hope to add more. Wendy and Me (1964-1965) was an American sitcom that aired on ABC, primarily sponsored by Consolidated Cigar's "El Producto". Starring George Burns and Connie Stevens, the series was Burns' first major work following the death of his wife and professional partner, Gracie Allen, who had died of a heart attack about a month prior to the debut of Wendy and Me. In the series (a slight variation of The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show), Burns, playing a somewhat fictionalized version of himself, is the owner of an apartment building, while Stevens plays his tenant, Wendy Conway. Episodes typically revolved around Wendy pulling Burns into comedic situations mostly involving her husband, played by Ron Harper, and other people in the building. As a regular part of its format, Burns would often break the fourth wall to comment directly to the audience about the episode's events, as he did in the Burn's & Allen series. The library can be found in both the Funny Guys and the Whacky Dames Catalogs.

      3/25/15 - Today I had Jury Duty at the local courthouse. I got there with my laptop and discovered that the promised "Wi-Fi" connection didn't work! So I decided to find a library I could work on without an internet connection and settled on completing my Highway Patrol Library by posting the 4th Season, for which I had individual bookmarks for each episode. So I added thirty-nine episodes to complete the 4th Season and now the library is complete - that is, until if and when I find the missing 8 episodes of the series. Kind of an appropriate choice, to work on a law enforcement program while sitting in the foyer of the courthouse. I finished it up just as, after waiting around for 2 1/2 hours, we were all excused. It turns out, while we were waiting, the judge and prosecutor were hammering out a plea bargain agreement with the defendant's attorney. This library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs. Also added three episodes to the Frankie Laine Time library. Frankie Laine Time (1955-56) was a summer replacement for The Arthur Godfrey Show that received a Primetime Emmy for Best Male Singer. Frankie Laine Time featured such guest stars as Ella Fitzgerald, Johnnie Ray, Georgia Gibbs, The Four Lads, Cab Calloway, Patti Page, Eddie Heywood, Duke Ellington, Boris Karloff, Patti Andrews, Joni James, Shirley MacLaine, Gene Krupa, Teresa Brewer, Jack Teagarden and Polly Bergen. This library begins with an unaired pilot from 1953 and is located in both the Musical Programs, and the Variety Shows Catalogs, and the Catalog of Stars.

      3/24/15 - Today I continued with the restoration of The Untouchables Library by adding twenty-four episodes of Season 2. That is eight episodes shy of the entire Season, but it is all that I have available at the moment. The Untouchables (1959-1963) - Special Agent Eliot Ness and his elite team of incorruptable agents battle organized crime in 1930s Chicago. Stars: Robert Stack, Walter Winchell and Nicholas Georgiade. Located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog and the Action and Adventure Catalog.

      3/23/15 - Today I created a new It Takes a Thief library with twenty-one episodes which takes to the 5th episode of Season 2. 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. I have the entire series (66 episodes) bookmarked, so many more to come.

      3/21/15 - Today I created a new Fireball XL5 library with twenty-four episodes to start. Fireball XL5 (1962-1963) was a science fiction themed children's television show following the missions of spaceship Fireball XL5, commanded by Colonel Steve Zodiac of the World Space Patrol. The show featured the Andersons' Supermarionation, a form of puppetry first introduced in Four Feather Falls (1960) and Supercar (1961) and used again in their subsequent productions such as Stingray, Thunderbirds and Captain Scarlet. THis show ran 39 episodes and I am pretty sure I have found all of them, so more to come. The new library is located in the Kid Shows the Action and Adventure, and the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalogs.

      3/19/15 - Today I started restoring my Rawhide library with thirty episodes, which takes us too the 8th episode of the 2nd Season. 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 library os located in the Western Shows Catalogs.

      3/18/15 - Today I created a new The Addams Family library with thirty-four episodes to complete Season 1. 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 entire series is available on Hulu with no expiration date, so many more to come. The new library can be found in the Funny Guys, Whacky Dames, Family Drama and Comedies and the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror Catalogs.

      3/17/15 - Today I added seventeen episodes to the People Are Funny library after receiving a tip from one of my regular viewers (Dennis Carter) that they were available on Hulu. People Are Funny! (1954-1960) - Back to the 50's with a half hour show hosted by Art Linkletter. Contestants are asked to do all sorts of crazy Stunts. Although the series ended on April 1, 1960, NBC aired encores until April 13, 1961, making People Are Funny the first game show to air repeats. On March 24, 1984, a "reconstituted" version of People Are Funny with Flip Wilson as host returned to NBC where it was telecast until July 21. This library is located in the Game Show Catalog

      3/16/15 - Today I created a new Frontier Doctor library with eleven episodes of this short-lived series (all I have found thus far). Frontier Doctor (1958-1959) was an American Western television series starring Rex Allen. The series 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 library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Western Shows Catalogs. Also added twenty-four episodes to the Kraft Suspense Theatre Library, which finishes the library (until I find more episodes) with thirty-nine of the fifty-nine episodes of the complete series. Not to be confused with the 1950s mystery/drama series called Suspense, Kraft Suspense Theatre was a late entry into the drama anthology genre and was first telecast on NBC beginning in 1963. Sponsored by Kraft Foods, it was seen three weeks out of every four and was pre-empted for Perry Como's Kraft Music Hall specials once monthly. Later syndicated under the title Crisis, it was one of the few suspense series telecast in color at the time. Because of the diverse nature of the storylines, this library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror, the Television Drama and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

      3/15/15 - This morning I received an alert from a long time viewer (George Murphy - thanks, George!) that all of my remaining YouTube-based episodes from the Twilight Zone library had vanished. Fortunately, the entire series is available on Hulu, so I was able to restore the eight missing episodes, plus I went ahead and added seven more from the first Season, which completes the Season 1 library. There are also a few odd episodes from later seasons. I have been holding off on expanding the library, because my experience with Hulu is not always that great. Some of you may remember that my entire Highway Patrol library was taken down from Hulu a few months ago. Sometimes they just decide to drop a series for no apparent reason (I'm sure it has to do with the costs of maintaining their license vs. the popularity of the series). In the case of Highway Patrol, I eventually found an "Official" YouTube channel for the series and have started restoring the library. YouTube channels don't pay license fees, rather YouTube makes arrangements with the content owners to monatize the uploads by embedding ads in them. Anyway, getting back to The Twilight Zone. I will probably start expanding this library a little at a time and see how it goes. Expect to see Season 2 starting to show-up in the next few weeks.

      3/14/15 - Today I added thirty-two of the thirty-nine episodes to Season 3 of The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin Library. That's it for Season 3 until I find the missing episodes. The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin (1954–1959), an ABC television series, ran from October 1954 to May 1959. Rusty was orphaned in an Indian raid. He and his dog Rin Tin Tin were adopted by the troops at Fort Apache in Arizona, and helped establish law and order in and around Mesa Grande. Two more Seasons to go!

      3/11/15 - Today I added thirty-six episodes of Season 3 (three episodes are missing) to the Highway Patrol Library. One more Season to go. Some of you may remember that the last time I added episodes (about three weeks ago) I noted that the writers of this series seemed to have developed an obsession with helicopters, with three copter related episodes in Season 2. That trend has continued with two more "copter episodes" in Season 3. Also in this Season, they seemed to go with a revenge theme quite a bit, with wrongfully convicted ex-cons going after witnesses in two episodes that occur almost back-to-back, an escaped convict going after the judge that sentenced him, and an angry farmer going after an orphan boy he mistakenly believes to have killed his son. This library s located in the Action and Adventure and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs. Also some bad news: I lost the Gale Storm Show, Wendy & Me, Hennessey and all but one of the Ben Casey libraries, along with some individual episodes from a few other libraries (My Little Margie, Zane Gray Theatre, Wild Bill Hickok, Ripcord) when the Public Domain YouTube channel was taken down yesterday. It could have been worse, I had bookmarked dozens of videos (and one complete library) that I hadn't got around to posting yet.

      3/10/15 - Today I am pleased to announce that I have started rebuilding the Danger Man Library with all thirty-nine episodes of Season 1 and eighteen episodes of Season 2 of the series (all I have found of Season 2 thus far). I plan to rebuild this library fairly quickly so many more to come. In Danger Man (1960–1962), John Drake was a special operative for NATO, specializing in security assignments against any subversive element that threatened world peace. The series featured exotic locales from all over the world, but it was relatively down-to-earth and realistic--especially when compared to its successor, "Secret Agent", which was released in the United States in 1964. Stars: Patrick McGoohan, Richard Wattis and Lionel Murton. This library is located in the Television Drama, Action and Adventure and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

      3/9/15 - Today I added twenty-seven episodes to the Gomer Pyle USMC Library, including twelve from Season 2 (all I have found so far) and fifteen from Season 3. 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. Ths library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog.

      3/8/15 - Today I added seventeen episodes to the Hogan's Heroes Library, which completes the 1st Season. This is the first time I have added to this library since I created it in December. I have been holding off to see whether or not the YouTube videos on this relatively recent series would last. The uploads were almost a year old when I started the library. Now it's 3 months later and they are still intact. I will probably continue to go slow with this library, since all of these episodes are on the same YouTube channel, and could theoretically vanish at any moment. 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. Later this evening I was going through some of the older libraries and found that my The Invisible Man Library, was out of order, but complete with all twenty-six episodes of the series intact. So I rearranged the library and added Season, Episode and Plot Summary information to all of the player pages. The Invisible Man (1958-1959), later known as H.G. Wells' Invisible Man, was a British science fiction/adventure/espionage television series that aired on ITV. The series was networked on CBS in the United States. It ran for 26 half-hour black-and-white episodes for two seasons and was nominally based on the novel by H. G. Wells. This library is found in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror and the Action and Adventure Catalogs.

      3/7/15 - Today I added all twenty-three episodes of Season 3 to the The Streets of San Francisco Library. Two more seasons to go. The Streets of San Francisco (1972–1977 ) tells the story of a veteran cop with more than 20 years of experience teamed with a young Inspector to solve crimes in San Francisco. Stars: Karl Malden and Michael Douglas. The library is located in the Television Drama, Mystery & Crime Drama and the Action and Adventure Catalogs. Also, since I now have two George Burns TV series, I decided to create a George Burns Catalog, including the Burns & Allen Show, Wendy and Me and an Other George Burns Appearances Library with thirteen television shows featuring Burns.

      3/6/15 - This morning I created a new Kraft Suspense Theatre Library with fifteen episodes to start. Not to be confused with the 1950s mystery/drama series called Suspense, Kraft Suspense Theatre was a late entry into the drama anthology genre and was first telecast on NBC beginning in 1963. Sponsored by Kraft Foods, it was seen three weeks out of every four and was pre-empted for Perry Como's Kraft Music Hall specials once monthly. Later syndicated under the title Crisis, it was one of the few suspense series telecast in color at the time. I have 39 of these episodes bookmarked so many more to come. Because of the diverse nature of the storylines, this library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror, the Television Drama and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

      3/4/15 - Today I spent most of the afternoon posting the 10th Season of the Gunsmoke Library, with all thirty-six episodes included. This is well past the half-way point of the series. Gunsmoke, with 635 total episodes, was the longest running episodic drama series in television history. We are at 377. I posted the previous season a couple of week ago, at this rate I will finish the series by next fall (if they don't all disappear on me).

      3/3/15 - Today I decided to take care of something I have been putting off for a while. I have several series' bookmarked in which I only have a few episodes thus far. I have been waiting to see if I could find more of them before starting to build the libraries. In particular I decided to create a The Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok Library. This was one of my favorites as a child and I have had the one episode I have ever found (before now) in my Western Specials library since the very early days of the site. Recently, however, I found a second episode on my friend Doug Curtis's Public Domain YouTube channel (thanks Doug!), then I went searching for more for the first time in over a year and found two more episodes, for a total of four in the current library - more to come (I hope). The Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok (1951-1958) starred Guy Madison as the legendary Old West lawman (in real life, also a gunfighter) United States Marshal James Butler "Wild Bill" Hickok, and Andy Devine as his comedy sidekick, Jingles P. Jones. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Western Shows Catalogs. Next, I created a new Angel Library with five episodes of the series. Angel (1960–1961) was an American sitcom that aired on CBS. The series was created and executive produced by Jess Oppenheimer, and stars Annie Fargé as the title character. Fargé portrayed Angelique "Angel" Smith, a pretty, young scatterbrained Frenchwoman who comes to the United States and marries a young architect, John Smith, played by Marshall Thompson. With her distinct French accent, Angel gets into various problems with the culture, language, and procedures in her new country. Jess Oppenheimer, who also produced the I Love Lucy series, sometimes referred to this show as "Lucy Ricardo in French". This new library is located in the Whacky Dames Catalogs. And finally, I was prepared to create a small Are You Being Served? Library and went over to the playlist I had bookmarked about 2 years ago, which had about ten episodes in it at that time, only to discover that, since the last time I looked at it, the owner of the YouTube channel had added ALL of the series episodes! So I have posted the first 3 Seasons (twenty episodes) to the new library - with many (49) more to come. Are You Being Served? (1972–1985) was a BBC television sitcom. The series follows the misadventures and mishaps of the staff, as well as various interludes with customers (portrayed by popular and well-known British actors in guest appearances), of the retail ladies' and gentlemen's clothing floor departments of a fictional London department store called Grace Brothers. This new library can be found in both the Funny Guys and the Whacky Dames Catalogs.

      3/2/15 - Today I created a new Wendy and Me Library with twenty-six of the thirty-four episodes of the series. Wendy and Me (1964-1965) was an American sitcom that aired on ABC, primarily sponsored by Consolidated Cigar's "El Producto". Starring George Burns and Connie Stevens, the series was Burns' first major work following the death of his wife and professional partner, Gracie Allen, who had died of a heart attack about a month prior to the debut of Wendy and Me. In the series (a slight variation of The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show), Burns, playing a somewhat fictionalized version of himself, is the owner of an apartment building, while Stevens plays his tenant, Wendy Conway. Episodes typically revolved around Wendy pulling Burns into comedic situations mostly involving her husband, played by Ron Harper, and other people in the building. As a regular part of its format, Burns would often break the fourth wall to comment directly to the audience about the episode's events, as he did in the Burn's & Allen series. A big shout out to my friend, Doug Curtis, for posting these episodes to his Public Domain YouTube channel. The new library can be found in both the Funny Guys and the Whacky Dames Catalogs.

      3/1/15 - Today I discovered that twelve episodes from my Zane Grey Theatre Library had vanished since the last time I looked. That was more than half of the library. Fortunately I was able to restore six of the lost episodes, and then I found four episodes that weren't in the original library, so at this point we are only down two - at least in terms of numbers. The library is located in the Action and Adventure, Television Drama, and the Western Shows Catalogs. Also added an episodes from October 10, 1961 to the Garry Moore Show Library, found in both the Funny Guys and the Variety Shows Catalogs.

      2/28/15 - Today I added eight more episodes to the Topper TV Series Library. We now have 52 of the 78 episodes that make up the entire series. The Topper library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog. Also added two episodes to the The Star and the Story Library, which can be found in the Television Drama Catalog.

      2/26/15 - Today, at the suggestion of an email correspondent named Terry, I created a new The Secrets of Isis Library with all twenty-two of the series episodes. The request startled me at first, because nowadays when you hear the word ISIS (or ISIL, as it is sometimes called) you immediately think of Islamic Extremists chopping people's heads off. But most people have also heard of the Egyption Goddess Isis, who was worshipped as the ideal mother and wife as well as the patroness of nature and magic. In fact, The Secrets of Isis (1975–1976) was a short lived Saturday Morning kids show that starred JoAnna Cameron as Andrea Thomas, a science teacher who found an ancient mystical gold amulet, the "Isiac amulet," on an archeological dig in Egypt. The amulet gave the wearer (specifically, Pharoh Hatshepsut and her descendants, of which Andrea was one) "the powers of the animals and the elements," which would be bestowed upon such wearer by the goddess Isis whenever it was exposed to the sun and her name invoked. The new library is located in the Kid Shows and the Action and Adventure Catalogs.

      2/25/15 - Today I added nineteen episodes to the Highway Patrol Library, which brings us to the end of Season 2. There are a few episodes missing here and there throughout the first 2 Seasons, but most of the episodes are intact. Highway Patrol was a syndicated action crime drama series produced from 1955–1959. Powerful patrol cars, fast motorcycles, and superheterodyne two-way radios combine to fight crime on the rural highways of America's wide open spaces. Stars: Broderick Crawford, Art Gilmore and William Boyett. I might add that this series seemed to have developed a fascination with helicopters during the second Season - there are three episodes in Season 2 that involve helicopters. The fact that this Season coincides with the first Season of the Whirleybirds series, raises some suspicion in my mind about what that was all about. Just sayin'... :-) There are two more seasons of Highway Patrol available, so lots more to come. This library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

      2/24/15 - Over at Solie's Wrestling Videos added twenty-four more matches to the WWF vs. USWA Library giving us thirty of the (currently) 79 chapters of the story. In 1992 the USWA began a talent exchange with the WWF, which saw Jerry Lawler sign on to Vince McMahon's federation, while several high profile WWF stars appeared in the USWA. The full playlist is displayed on the Main WWF vs. USWA Library page - followed by links to the individual Chapters. This playlist is being expanded regularly, so watch for this library to grow exponentially.

      2/22/15 - Today I added the last twenty-eight episodes (the 4th Season) to the The Wild Wild West library, thus completing the library with all of the episodes intact. The Wild Wild West (1965–1969) was a television series that ran on CBS from September 17, 1965 to April 4, 1969. The series told the story of two Secret Service agents: the fearless and handsome James T. West (played by Robert Conrad), and Artemus Gordon (played by Ross Martin), a brilliant gadgeteer and master of disguise. Their mission was to protect President Grant and the United States from all manner of dangerous threats. The library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Western Shows Catalogs.

      2/21/15 - Today I added Season 9 (thirty-eight episodes) to the Gunsmoke Library. It has been almost exactly a month since the last time I added episodes, and I am going to keep working on it at a slow pace, having lost the entire library on three separate occasions since I first started building it way back in early 2012. Last month I started actually building NEW episode pages - during the most recent restoration, I had been simply restoring already built pages until I created the Season 8 library in late January. The Gunsmoke library is located, of course, in the Western Shows Catalog.

      2/19/15 - Today I created a new Captain Nice Library with all fifteen episodes of this short-lived series. Captain Nice (1967) - Riding the tide of the camp superhero craze of the 1960s, the show's premise involved police chemist Carter Nash (William Daniels), a mild-mannered mama's boy who discovered a secret formula that, when taken, transformed him in an explosive burst of smoke into Captain Nice. Captain Nice didn't behave much differently from Carter. In fact, the Captain ran around in a white, red, and blue pajama-like costume, complete with cape, lovingly sewn by his domineering mother who had basically bullied him into his crime-fighting career. I have to confess that I never heard of this show until someone mentioned it too me on Facebook. The late 60s was a crucial era for me as I was establishing my musical career at the time - spent most of that period on the road with various bands - didn't really watch TV at all for several years there, except for occasional late night movies or the Tonight Show in whatever hotel (or motel) I was staying at. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure Catalog and the Funny Guys Catalog. Also added six more episodes to the Patti Page Show Library

      2/17/15 - This morning I created a new Win Ben Stein's Money Library with thirteen episodes to start. Win Ben Stein's Money was an American television game show that aired on the Comedy Central cable network. The show featured three contestants who competed to answer general knowledge questions in order to win the grand prize of $5,000 from the show's host, Ben Stein. In the second half of each episode, Stein participated as a "common contestant" in order to defend his money from being taken by his competitors. The show won five Daytime Emmy awards, with Stein and Jimmy Kimmel, the show's original co-host, sharing the Outstanding Game Show Host award in 1999. I can't stand this guy's politics, but I used to love watching this show, which aired from 1997-2003. Being that it is so recent, I doubt that these videos will last long on YouTube - but most of them are over a year old so we'll see... The new library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog and the Game Show Catalog. Also created a new Hallmark Hall of Fame Library wth seven episodes and TV movies so far. Hallmark Hall of Fame (1951-Present) is an anthology program on American television, sponsored by Hallmark Cards. The longest-running primetime series in the history of television, it has a historically long run, beginning during 1951 and continuing into 2015. From 1954 onward, all of its productions have been shown in color, although color television video productions were extremely rare in 1954. This new library is located in the Television Drama Catalog.

      2/16/15 - This morning I added one episode to the Patti Page Show Library and then added eight episodes to the Rin Tin Tin Library, which completes the second season of the series until I find a couple that are missing. I also expanded the Rin Tin Tin Catalog by adding a Feature Films Library with ten Rin Tin Tin films.

      2/15/15 - Tonight I was able to restore twenty-five episodes of the first page of The Untouchables Library - there were 27 eps previously. I am going to leave it this way for a while before I expand it. All the pages for this entire series are already built, so it is a fairly easy task to restore pages with only one variable to swap per page. The Untouchables (1959-1963) - Special Agent Eliot Ness and his elite team of incorruptable agents battle organized crime in 1930s Chicago. Stars: Robert Stack, Walter Winchell and Nicholas Georgiade. I just lost this libray about 2 months ago. The current channel I am getting these from been up for about a year so I am hopefull but not yet ready to commit to a full restoration just yet. Located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog and the Action and Adventure Catalog.

      2/14/15 - Tonight I added twenty-two of the 23 episodes of the 2nd Season to The Streets of San Francisco Library. This series is relatively recent - from the 1970's, and so I am not confident that these episodes will last on the site for very long. It is such a great show, however, and for me it is very nostalgic to watch because Karl Malden came to several of my performances at the Magic Castle in the early 1980s - I met his wife there as well. So I am enjoying these right along with you, right? :-) The Streets of San Francisco (1972–1977) is about a veteran cop with more than 20 years of experience teaming with a young Inspector to solve crimes in San Francisco. Stars: Karl Malden and Michael Douglas. Located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog and the Action and Adventure Catalog.

      2/13/15 - Today I restored the Honey West Library, with all thirty of the series episodes. Honey West is a fictional character created by Gloria and Forest Fickling under the pseudonym "G.G. Fickling. The character is notable as being one of the first female private detectives in popular fiction. The character was also the basis for a 30 episodes ABC TV series in the 1965-66 television season stasrring Anne Francis and John Ericson. Aaron Spelling was the Executive Producer. The entire series is here. The restored library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog and the Action and Adventure Catalog.

      2/12/15 - Today I added nineteen episodes to the Richard Diamond: Private Detective Library, which finishes the library until such time as I find more episodes to add. 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. While I was at it I realized that I have two David Janssen TV series', so I incorprated The Fugitive library with Richard Diamond into a new David Janssen Catalog, then added five of his Feature Films to the mix. The links to this catalog appear in the Mystery & Crime Drama, Feature Films and Television Drama Catalogs.

      2/11/15 - Tonight I got into kind of a "Patty/Patti" jag - I started by creating a new Patti Page Show Library with eleven episodes of her various television shows from 1952 - 1959. The Patti Page Show was an American television series which aired in a 15-minute time-slot, with two commercial breaks for sponsor, Oldsmobile. In the series, Patti Page lip-synced pop songs, mostly standards, with additional songs by the Page Five singers, a vocal group of three men and two women. There were 78 quarter-hour episodes, which circa 1958 were edited into 31 half-hour episodes. This library starts with a 1952 edition of Music Hall starring Patti Page and is located in the Musical Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. When I was searching for Patti Page shows I came across two episodes of the Patty Duke Show. I bookmarked them then went looking for more Patty Dule videos and found eight Game Show appearances, sometimes with her husband, John Astin, an episode of the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour with Patty Duke as a guest, and three interview programs. This new Patty Duke Library is located in the Whacky Dames Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      2/10/15 - Tonight I expanded the Shotgun Slade Library by adding twelve episodes to the five I had previously. Shotgun Slade is a private detective in the Old West who totes a combination rifle/shotgun. Shotgun Slade starred Scott Brady in the title role. The pilot for Shotgun Slade aired earlier in 1959 on CBS's Schlitz Playhouse.This detective style TV western was unique due to its jazz-style musical theme. I hope to see more of these. There were 78 in the full series.

      2/9/15 - Today we were without power here in Fort Bragg. Actually since about 10 PM last night. We had a big storm. Everybody in town was out. Now there are about 600 homes - including ours, and the downtown business district, still in that situation. I went out and got a portable generator - it puts out 3.35 kilowats - it's gas powered, but it's not a little hand carry unit like we use for the stages when we perform outdoors at the Botanical Gardens. This weighs 100 lbs. and is in a metal frame on wheels - it can run the refrigerator and a few lights and maybe a computer or two. A hotplate for cooking - things like that. But we have no web access because Comcast is also down. So tonight I decided to build some pages from some bookmarks I had handy. I added the remainder of the Second Season shows (thirteen episodes) to the Suspense Library. The bookmarks info include the Season and Episode numbers, but no plot summary information - which I intend to add later. Suspense (1949–1954) was an American television anthology series that ran on CBS Television from 1949 to 1954. Live plays featuring people who were in dangerous and threatening situations. Like many early television shows, the show was broadcast live from New York City. I still have most of the Third and Fourth Seasons bookmarked, so lots more to come. I will upload these to the site as soon as we get power back - at which point this very post will appear on line - probably sometime tomorrow.

      2/7/15 - Today I created a new December Bride Library with seven episodes, which is all I have been able to find thus far. December Bride (1954-1959) was an American sitcom that aired on the CBS television network, adapted from the original CBS radio network series. December Bride centered around the adventures of Lily Ruskin, a spry widow played by Spring Byington, who was not, in fact, a "December" (rather old) bride but very much desired to become one if the right man would come along. The new library is located in the Whacky Dames Catalog and the Family Drama and Comedies Catalog. I also added the remaining twelve episodes to the Department "S" Library, which finishes off the series with all 28 episodes intact. Over at Solie's Wrestling Videos I created a new WWF vs. USWA Library with sixteen of the (currently) 79 chapters of the story. In 1992 the USWA began a talent exchange with the WWF, which saw Jerry Lawler sign on to Vince McMahon's federation, while several high profile WWF stars appeared in the USWA. The ful playlist is displayed on the Main WWF vs. USWA Library page - followed by links to the individual Chapters. This playlist is being expanded regularly, so watch for this library to grow exponentially.

      2/6/15 - Today, at the suggestion of George Murphy (a frequent viewer of the site who corresponded with me via email) I created a new Branded Library with nine episodes, which are all I have found so far. Branded (1965-1966) was an American Western series which aired on NBC and was sponsored by Procter & Gamble in its Sunday night 8:30 p.m. Eastern Time period, and starred Chuck Connors as Jason McCord, a United States Army Cavalry captain who had been drummed out of the service following an unjust accusation of cowardice. 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. The Rifleman series, also available here, preceeded this series, which never achieved the popularity of Connor's previous vehicle. The new library has been incorporated into a new Chuck Connors Catalog along with the Rifleman series, and a new Chuck Connors Film Library. The new catalog is located in the Western Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. I also added the first seventeen episodes of Season 2 to the Highway Patrol Library. Many more to come!

      2/5/15 - Today I expanded the My Little Margie Library with twenty episodes from the YouTube Public Domain channel. This brings the full library to 36 episodes currently. I rearranged this library a while back but today I added Season, Episode and Plot Summary info to all of the pages. My Little Margie was an American situation comedy that alternated between CBS and NBC from 1952 to 1955. Set in New York City, the series stars Gale Storm as 21-year-old Margie Albright and former silent film star Charles Farrell as her widowed father, 50-year-old Vern Albright.

      2/4/15 - If it seems like I am doing a lot for the past several months it is because I have been - but a big part of why I have been able to get so much stuff done is that I have learned to program my pages faster, using shortcuts and little tricks of process regarding my interface with the Television Databases that abound on the web. Today I worked on the oldest series library on the site. I recognized the Mr. and Mrs. North Library immediately, the moment I opened it in a text editor and glanced at the code. When I was building that first series library I started creating the page names using the Internet Archive Indentifiers, which are created by the person who uploads the video files. The person who uploaded these files had used underscore's "_" between the words that formed the name of the series like this - Mr_and_Mrs_North - then followed it the same treatment of the episode name. I realized after doing three or four of the episodes in the list that it would be better for my purposes if I eliminated the underscores like this - MrandMrsNorth - then I could select that prefix by simply double-cicking on the group of letters and use it for search purposes and for creating new pages with the same prefix. From then on I created all of my episode and library page names that way - contracting the series title followed by an underscore folowed by the contracted episode title. So on this page - which I have since changed, was an historical relic of the first weeks of the creation of this site. and the evidence was the abrupt shift from the underscore-riddled first three file names to the orderly ones that followed. Mr. and Mrs. North was the first series I found on the Archive that had more than just a few episodes - it has 38! My biggest library before I built this one had 6! Anyway - today I arranged it into the proper broadcast order and added season, episode and plot summary information. It took about an hour and a half. The characters in Mr. and Mrs. North (1952-1954) originated in 1930s mystery vignettes written by Richard Lockridge for the New York Sun, and he brought them back for short stories in The New Yorker. These stories were collected in Mr. and Mrs. North (1936). Barbara Britton and Richard Denning starred in the TV adaptation, produced by John W. Loveton, seen on CBS from 1952 to 1953 and on NBC in 1954.

      I also created a new The Millionaire Library today with twenty episodes to start. 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. The new library is located in the Television Drama Catalog.

      I want to throw a shout out to my new Facebook friend, Doug Curtis, who is the proprietor of the Public Domain YouTube channel from which I have drawn this and several other of the series libraries I have posted in the past few weeks, including: The Gale Storm Show, Hennesey, Zane Grey Theatre, and several others to come. Thanks Doug!

      2/3/15 - Today I created a new Zane Grey Theatre Library with twenty-three episodes so far (which is all that I have found too this point). Dick Powell's Zane Grey Theatre, sometimes simply called Zane Grey Theatre, was an American Western anthology series which ran on CBS from 1956 to 1961. The show was originally based on the short stories and novels of Western author Zane Grey, but as the episodes continued, new material was included. Aaron Spelling, wrote twenty Zane Grey episodes. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure, Television Drama, and the Western Shows Catalogs. I also created a new Jackie Cooper Cataog with seven of his Movies, six episodes of The People's Choice, ten episodes of Hennesey and four Other Appearances. The new catalog is located in the Funny Guys and the Feature Films Catalogs, and in the Catalog of Stars.

      2/2/15 - Today I added three episodes to the The Morey Amsterdam Show Library, which doubled the size of the library, and also did extensive work re-organizing my Soap Opera Library into a Catalog with libraries for the various shows. In the process I added about a dozen individual episodes to the various Soap Opera libraries. I also discovered while I was in there that I neglected to perform the fullscreen reset on those files when I was performing my annual "Housekeeping" regimin last week, which is why I have to be vague about which new episodes I added to which libraries because I essentially touched every file in the Soap Opera Catalog, making it very hard to sort out after the fact. The new Soap Opera Catalog is located within the Television Drama Catalog. Also added two episodes to The Avengers Library. This is remarkable because these are the only episodes I have found so far which takes place before Diana Rigg joined the cast as Emma Peel. One features Julie Stevens as Venus Smith. The other has Honor Blackman playing Catherine Gale.

      2/1/15 - Today I restored my Whirlybirds Library, with the twenty-five episodes that were in the original library - I have 22 more to post, but am holding off to see if they uploads last before I post any more. I also restored the Rin Tin Tin Library taking it too the 18th episode of Season 2. There are more to come on this one as well (76 more episodes, in fact) but again I intend to hold off a while to see what happens with these fairly recent uploads. Both libraries are found in the Action and Adventure. Rin Tin Tin is also in the Western Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      1/29/15 - Today I created a new Gomer Pyle U.S.M.C. Library with all thirty episodes of Season 1. I found this Gomer Pyle YouTube Channel about a year ago, and have been sitting on them to see if they lasted. At this point the uploads have had thousands of views and they are still there, so I decided to put up the first season, then wait a while longer to see what happens (my wife has come to believe that my site might be the "kiss of death" for some YouTube channels - like nobody notices the illicit videos until I put them up). All 5 seasons are available, so 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. In 1964, the character was spun off into Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.

      1/28/15 - Today I started rebuilding my Highway Patrol Library with thirty-two episodes to start. This completes the 1st Season of the series (unless I find the other 7 episodes that are missing). I discovered over the last few days during my annual housekeeping project that Hulu had decided to drop the series, so I lost all but 5 of them. Fortunately, a viewer on Facebook (Sonny Comstock) pointed me to a a YouTube playlist that contained 140 episodes (there are 156 total in the series, and I only had 45 in my original library). So, lots more to come! Highway Patrol starred Broderick Crawford as Dan Mathews, the gruff and dedicated head of a police force in an unidentified Western state. A signature shot of the series is fedora-wearing Mathews barking rapid-fire dialogue into a radio microphone as he leans against the door of his black and white patrol car. Mathews growls "21-50 to headquarters" and the invariable response is "Headquarters by" (as in, standing by). He also popularized the radio phrase "10-4" - meaning "That is correct" or "I understand". The rebuilt library is located in the Action and Adventure, Television Drama and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

      1/22/15 - Today I resumed working on the Gunsmoke Library for the first time since last October. I have been holding off for a while because, as many of you know, I have not had good luck with this library from the beginning. On three separate occasions I have built and rebuilt it only to watch it vanish into the wind. In October, I restored the library to the end of the 7th Season, which was as far as I had ever gotten, and decided to hold off a while because restoring pages that are already built takes a lot less effort than building them from scratch. At this point the "Official" Gunsmoke YouTube channel has been on line for over a year, and all of the Seasons are still there, so I decided to push on and see what happens. Thus I have now built Season 8 of the library, with thirty-seven of the thirty-nine episodes intact. The other two are out there in the ether somewhere and I hope to be able to add them later. I have also made a change in the library listings for this series. With 20 Seasons consisting of 635 episodes, Gunsmoke is the longest running episodic drama series to ever be broadcast on television. To make this vast library easier to navigate, I have made the main library page into a Table of Contents, with a link each of the Seasons. That way, the viewer doesn't have to wade through tens of pages just to get to the Season he or she wants to watch. Simply click on the link with the name of the Season you want to go to - and you are there. While I was at it I also created a Gunsmoke Radio Library with fouteen episodes to start, then created a Gunsmoke Catalog to house both libraries. The Gunsmoke Catalog is located, of course, in the Western Shows Catalog.

      1/20/15 - Today I created a new Department S Library with sixteen episodes to start. Department S was a United Kingdom spy-fi adventure series produced by ITC Entertainment. It starred Peter Wyngarde as author Jason King, Joel Fabiani as Stewart Sullivan, and Rosemary Nicols as computer expert Annabelle Hurst. These three were agents for a fictional special department of Interpol. There are only 28 episodes total in the series and I have all of them boolmarked, so more to come. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs. I also restored a major portion of the Mike Hammer Library (17 episodes so far), which vanished altogether in that catastrophy that occurred last week, and also restored the Fury Library, which I discovered was gone yesterday. The Fury library had 22 episodes, all of which I was able to restore, plus one that wasn't in the original library. The library is located in the Action and Adventure Catalog, and in the Western Shows Catalog.

      1/19/15 - Today, at the suggestion of Wilfredo Umpierre on Facebook, I created a new Ripcord Library with eighteen episodes to start. So far that is all I have found, but thirteen of them were posted within the month, so I have hopes of finding more eventually. Ripcord (1961-1963) was an American syndicated television series about the exploits of a skydiving operation by the same name. The premise was a variety of adventures surrounding the then-new sport of skydiving. The men and their private aircraft were placed in unusual situations where the team's special skills and abilities were needed. The series stared Larry Pennell as Ted McKeever and Ken Curtis as Jim Buckley, his older mentor. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure Catalog.

      1/18/15 - Today I added twelve episodes to complete The Avengers Library including all of the 4th, 5th, and 6th Seasons and one episode from the 7th Season. The 1st through 3rd Seasons and the remainder of the 7th Season are not currently available (in fact, this library includes ALL of the episodes that were broadcast in the US). The episodes I added today are all from Hulu (sorry about the commercials). I should mention that I recently discovered that Hulu episodes are not necessarily forever. The other day I noticed that Hulu had removed My Mother the Car from their line-up, which means it disappeared from my site as well. The Avengers library is located in the Action and Adventure, Television Drama and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

      This evening I decided to arrange another of my very early libraries into the proper order with Season, Episode and Plotline information. In the process I discovered that I actually have seventy-seven of the seventy-eight episodes of the Lock Up Series! Lock-Up (1959-1961) was a legal drama series starring Macdonald Carey as real-life Philadelphia corporate attorney Herbert L. Maris and John Doucette as police detective Lieutenant Jim Weston. Each episode began with the following introduction: "These stories are based on the files and case histories of Herbert L. Maris, a prominent attorney, who has devoted his life to saving the innocent." This library is located in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

      1/17/15 - Today I expanded my Ben Casey Library from four to thirteen episodes. Ben Casey (1961-1966) was a gritty, realistic hospital drama featuring manly Dr. Casey against the medical establishment, at first under the watchful eye of Dr. Zorba and later under the thumb of Chief of Surgery Dr. Freeland. Stars: Vince Edwards, Sam Jaffe and Jeanne Bates. This library is located in the Television Drama Catalog. Also created a new The Restless Gun Library with twenty-one episodes so far. The Restless Gun (1961-1966) was an American western television series that appeared on NBC between 1957 and 1959, with John Payne in the role of Vint Bonner, a wandering cowboy in the era after the American Civil War. A skilled gunfighter, Bonner is an idealistic person who prefers peaceful resolutions of conflict wherever possible. He is gregarious, intelligent, and public-spirited. The half-hour black-and-white program aired seventy-eight episodes. The library is located in the Western Shows Catalog.

      1/16/15 - Today I expanded my Private Secretary Library from eight to eleven episodes. Private Secretary (1953-1957) (aka Susie) was an American sitcom that aired on CBS, alternating with The Jack Benny Program on Sundays. The series stars Ann Sothern as Susan Camille "Susie" MacNamara, devoted secretary to handsome talent agent Peter Sands, played by Don Porter. I also created a new Ann Sothern Show Library with ten episodes to start. The Ann Sothern Show (1959-1961) was an American sitcom starring Ann Sothern that aired on CBS for 93 episodes. The series 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 is the assistant manager of the Bartley House Hotel in New York City working for James Devery. Katy's secretary, best friend and roommate is Olive Smith. Both libraries are located in the Ann Sothern Catalog, which can be found in the Whacky Dames Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. Also added three episodes to the Bachelor Father Library and then arranged the library into proper order with Season, Episode and plotline information. Never-married attorney Bentley Gregg took on the task (with help from his "houseboy", Peter) of raising his young niece Kelly, after her parents died in an accident. The job was easier when Kelly was a little girl, but now she's in her teens, and beginning to date and venture into the adult world, while Bentley continues to juggle his career, looking after Kelly, and his own romantic life. The library is located in the Family Drama and Comedies Library.

      1/15/15 - Today I started to expand my Suspense Library by adding twenty-two episodes to the initial four. Suspense, another of my very early libraries, was an American television anthology series that ran on CBS Television from 1949 to 1954. Live plays featuring people who were in dangerous and threatening situations. Like many early television shows, the show was broadcast live from New York City. I have 51 more episodes bookmarked so many more to come! This library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror, the Television Drama and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

      1/14/15 - Today I expanded my Topper TV Show Library exponentially from seven to forty-four episodes. While I was at it I added Season, Episode and Plotline information to the player pages and arranged the library into the proper order. Topper is another of those libraries that I built within the first few weeks after creating the Uncle Earl site. At first I had three episodes that I found on the Internet Archive. Then about two years ago I found four more on YouTube. The day before yesterday I found a new Public Domain TV channel on YouTube and discovered dozens of Topper episodes, along with the Gale Storm Show episodes I posted yesterday, and also the Annie Oakly episodes I added to that library. Topper was an American fantasy sitcom based on the 1937 film of the same name. The series was broadcast on CBS from October 9, 1953 to July 15, 1955, and stars Leo G. Carroll in the title role. This was one of my favorite TV shows as a child and it still holds up very well - I recommend it highly. While I was at it, I separated my Topper Films into ther own library (there are only three of them and I have them all) and created a Topper Catalog to hold both libraries. The new Catalog is located in the Feature Films Catalog, the Funny Guys Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      1/13/15 - Today I created a new Gale Storm Show Library with twenty-seven episodes, which are all I have found thus far. The Gale Storm Show was an American sitcom starring Gale Storm. The series, based on a cruise director, Susanna Pomeroy, on a ship travelling around the world, premiered on September 29, 1956, and ran until 1960 for 143 half-hour black-and-white episodes, initially on CBS and in its last year on ABC. Co-star, Zazu Pitts played Susanna's friend and ship's hairdresser, "Nugey". The series was aired under the title Oh, Susanna in syndication. The new library is located in the Gale Storm Catalog, which is located in the Whacky Dames Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. Also added eight episodes to the Annie Oakley Library and then re-arranged the library into proper order with Season, Episode and plot line information added to the player pages. Annie Oakley fictionalized the life of famous sharpshooter Annie Oakley. It ran from January 1954 to February 1957 in syndication. The show stars Gail Davis in the title role, and co-starred Brad Johnson as Deputy Sheriff Lofty Craig and Jimmy Hawkins, as Annie's brother, Tagg. The library is located in the Western Shows Catalog.

      1/11/15 - This morning I opened my email inbox and got some very bad news. However, shortly thereafter I received some decidedly good news. Allow me to explain. I got a message from a regular viewer this morning that my Peter Gunn Library was no more!! He said that he had just gone there and couldn't find any episodes that played. I went to the library myself and started going through the episodes systematically and discovered that he was not quite correct. While it was true that most of the links were dead, there were two episodes in Season 1, and nine episodes in Season 3 that were still alive. Then I remembered something about my Peter Gunn library. The last time I posted PG episodes had been back in July, and I had finished the series except for the last 28 episodes of Season 3 - I just couldn't find anymore of them, but I had found an "Official" Peter Gunn YouTube channel, which was not yet complete at that time. I had gotten those 9 Season 3 episodes from there, and figured the rest of them would show up eventually. And now they have. In fact, I found the entire series there and was able to rebuild my previous library in a little over an hour, then continued on and posted the remaining 28 episodes of Season 3, thus completing the series!

      1/10/15 - In memory of the passing of Rod Taylor on Wednesday I have created a Rod Taylor Film Library with seven of his feature films so far. I have also found a cache of his 1960's TV series Hong Kong, but I have decided to hold off building that library because I am a little spooked about what happened yesterday. Loosing 11 series libraries in one day is a little traumatising. Not only are the Hong Kong uploads only 5 months old, but another series also found on this guys channel is the CPO Sharkey series, which I am absolutely certian is still under copyright protection. I figure that entire channel could vanish at any moment, so I am biding my time. Rodney Stuart “Rod” Taylor (11 January 1930 – 7 January 2015) was an Australian actor of film and television. He appeared in over 50 films, including leading roles in The Time Machine, Seven Seas to Calais, The Birds, Sunday in New York, Young Cassidy, Dark of the Sun, The Liquidator, and The Train Robbers.

      1/9/15 - Disaster has struck! The guy who posted nine libraries was just terminated from YouTube: The Detectives, Dante, Markham, The Rogues, Judd for the Defense, Four Just Men, Follow the Sun, Broken Arrow, Klondike and Whirlybirds are all gone. Yikes!!!

      1/7/15 - Going back to my seeming obsession with espionage drama of late, tonight I created a The Champions Library with all thirty episodes of the series. The Champions was a British espionage/science fiction/occult detective fiction adventure series consisting of 30 episodes broadcast on the UK network ITV during 1968–1969, produced by Lew Grade's ITC Entertainment production company. The series was broadcast in the US on NBC, starting in summer 1968. Craig Stirling, Sharron Macready and Richard Barrett were agents for Nemesis, an international intelligence organization based in Geneva. Their first mission as a team was to investigate some lethal experiments in Communist China, but while escaping, their plane was damaged. They crashed into a remote part of the Himalayas where they were rescued by members an unknown civilization. They came away from the encounter with superhuman powers--telepathy, superior strength, memory, etc. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure, Television Drama and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

      1/6/15 - Today I created a Sesame Street Library with thirty-two episodes to add to the Muppets Catalog. I was surprised to learn that they are pretty hard to come by without paying for them, and that the usual sources of information provide almost nothing to help in determining what years they were done. The only semi-reliable info was provided by the people who uploaded these videos to YouTube, and it is confusing at best. For instance, when someone claims that this is "Episode 1701", do they mean that it is the 1701st episode, or it is the 1st episode of the 17th season? It could very well be either, though I am inclined think it means the latter. The show has run almost daily for 45 years (since 1969). That would mean at least 44 seasons. The Internet Movie DataBase (IMDb) only lists 497 episodes, while TV.com says there were 130 episodes in the first season. Neither can be correct, so it is a puzzle. I assume that means that most of the people who contribute to these databases are, like myself, too old to have actually watched the program as a child. I have tried to arrange them chronologically, Most of them appear to be from the early years, although the final one in the library is one of the few with an actual date on it, which is 2012.

      1/5/15 - Today I added nineteen episodes to The Avengers Library. This takes us to the end of the 4th Season and 13 episodes into the 5th Season. At this point there are only 3 episodes left for the 5th Season, and the 6th Season only has 8 episodes in total. The 7th Season has 33 episodes, but only one is available on Hulu, so I will likely complete this library sometime this week. When complete, this library will feature ALL of the episodes that appeared on television in the US (51 episodes).

      This evening I was watching a documentary on NetFlix called "Being Elmo", about the puppeteer who took the Elmo character in the Muppets and made him into one of the top stars on Sesame Street. I decided to take advantage of the bookmarks I collected a while back and create a new The Muppet Show Library with the twenty-four episodes that make up the first Season to start. This meant that I needed to create a new Muppets Catalog to house the new library plus the Muppets Tonight Library which is already on the site. The Muppet Show was a television series produced by puppeteer Jim Henson. After two pilot episodes in 1974 and 1975 failed to impress America's network heads, Lew Grade approached Henson to produce the program in the UK. The show lasted for five seasons first broadcast in Britain from September 5, 1976 to March 15, 1981 over ATV and syndicated to local broadcast stations elsewhere, including the US. I have the entire series bookmarked, but a substantial number of them were posted in segments, which means I will have to make Playlists in order to put them up on the site. So it will be a while, but eventually I will have the whole series. Stay tuned. The new Catalog is located in the Kid Shows, Musical Shows, Variety Shows and Funny Guys Catalogs.

      1/4/15 - Today I added ten matches to the Georgia Championship Wrestling Single Matches Library, four Promos to the Georgia Championship Wrestling Promos Library, five videos to the Georgia Championship Wrestling Angles & Feuds Library and one Promo to the Mid-South Wrestling Promos Library - all are located in the Solie's Wrestling Video Catalog

      1/3/15 - Today I created a new The Streets of San Francisco Library with twenty-five episodes from Season 1 (all but two of them). The Streets of San Francisco (1972–1977) was a series about a veteran cop with more than 20 years of experience teamed with a young Inspector to solve crimes in San Francisco. Stars: Karl Malden and Michael Douglas. NOTE: The episode numbers on these YouTube videos are all 1 number off because the Series Pilot, which is included here, was a TV Movie, not series episode. I have 116 of the 120 episodes of this series bookmarked, so many more to come, although I will probably hold off a while before posting any more of them to make sure that these YouTube videos aren't going to disappear. They have been up for 11 months and have all had at least 5000 views so I have high hopes, but just in case you might want to start watching them soon. By the way, this show is kind of special for me personally because on at least two occasions, when I was a professional magician in the 1970-80's, when this show was at the height of it's popularity, I performed for Karl Malden at the Magic Castle. I also had Michael Douglas in my audience one time. The new library os located in the Action and Adventure, Television Drama and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

      1/1/15 - Tonight I added twenty-eight episodes to The Fugitive Library, bringing us to the end of the 4th Season, which is the end of the series. The library contains 97 of the 120 episodes that make up the entire series, which is all that I have found thus far. I will be on the lookout for th remaining 23 episodes.

      12/29/14 - Today I achieved another milestone (at least in my own mind) by creating a new The Avengers Library with twenty episodes to start. The Avengers (not to be confused with the Marvel comic book characters that went by the same title) was a spy-fi British television series created in the 1960s. The series initially focused on Dr. David Keel (Ian Hendry) and his assistant John Steed (Patrick Macnee). Hendry left after the first season and Steed became the main character, partnered with a succession of assistants, mostly female. The bulk of these episodes are from Veoh.com. One is from the Internet Archive. The rest are from Hulu (sorry about the commercials). The reason I consider this a milestone is that I have been searching for episodes of this series, one of my all time personal favorites, since I created the Uncle Earl site, with no success until now. I had given up the quest some time ago, but then stumbled across two episodes on the Internet Archive this morning. I then decided to conduct a web-wide search for Avenger videos and found twenty-four 4th Season episodes on Veoh.com. Veoh is an Isreali owned streaming site where I have occasionally found hard to locate TV shows. I don't know how old these uploads are, but each of them has been viewed tens of thousands of times, which, given the relative obscurity of the Veoh site, probably means they have been there for a couple of years at least. I then went to the Internet Movie database for episode info and found links to episodes on Hulu, including the entire 4th Season, plus selected episodes from the 5th, 6th and 7th Seasons. So far I have found 53 episodes in total. The 4th Season, by the way, was the first to be broadcast in the United States. I am planning to start watching these right away, and would suggest the same to my viewers. There is no telling how long the Veoh episodes will last - though if they do vanish at some point I will be able to quickly repost them from Hulu. The new library is located in the Action and Adventure, Television Drama and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalogs.

      12/26/14 - Tonight I created a new Steptoe and Son Library with the first 3 Seasons (20 episodes) to start. Steptoe and Son was a classic 1960s British comedy series about a middle aged man and his elderly father who run an unsuccessful 'rag and bone' business (collecting and selling junk). Harold (the son) wants to better himself but his father always seems to ruin things, sometimes accidentally and other times deliberately. The two live in poverty and the father has some disgusting habits which continue to embarrass the son. The series was later adapted in the US as Sanford & Son, starring Redd Fox and Demond Wilson. The entire series (57 episodes) is available and bookmarked, so many more to come. The new libary is located in both the Funny Guys and the Family Comedies and Drama Catalogs.

      12/25/14 - Tonight I finished the 2nd Season (eight episodes) and added the 3rd Season (twenty-six episodes) to the Mister Ed Library. The first two Seasons were mostly from Hulu, but these latest episodes are all from YouTube (i.e. commercial free). Happy Holidays everyone!

      12/22/14 -This evening I added Darleen Love on the Letterman Show (12/19/2014) in the Christmas TV Shows Library of the Christmas Collection Catalog. This was her 29th annual performance on the show, and of course, her last. Merry Christmas everyone!

      Earlier today I created a Life of Riley Radio Library with nine episodes of the series. The radio program starring William Bendix as Riley initially aired on ABC, from January 16, 1944 to June 8, 1945. Then it moved to NBC, where it was broadcast from September 8, 1945 to June 29, 1951. This prompted me to create a Life of Riley Catalog to house the three series libraries. The new Catalog is located in both the Funny Guys and the Family Comedies and Drama Catalogs, and the Old Time Radio Catalog.

      12/21/14 - Today I added twenty-seven episodes to the Life of Riley with William Bendix Library, including: Babs' School Election, Riley's Gift from the Boss, Riley's Operation, Riley Punishes Junior, Riley the Worrier, Riley Balances the Budget and Junior's Double Date in the 1st and 2nd seasons. The other 20 are from the 3rd, 4th and 5th seasons, which expands the library greatly. Since they are all beyond the scope of the original library I don't need to list them - everything past the first page of the library is new.

      12/18/14 - Today I re-arranged the Meet Corliss Archer Library into proper order and added Season, Episode and Plot information to the player pages. In the process I discovered that I have almost the entire syndicated series (33 of the 39 episodes - interestingly, Wikipedia claims that there are only 24 episodes known to exist - apparently whoever wrote that article never looked on the Internet Archive). Pert blond teenager Corliss Archer must balance her life at school, her lovable but goofy boyfriend Dexter and her well-meaning but clueless parents. Like many other radio shows, Meet Corliss Archer made the leap to television with live performances in 1951 and 1952, and from 1954 to 1955, as a syndicated television show starring Ann Baker and Mary Brian. One of the show's unique features was the occasional cut to a comic-book-style drawing, with announcer's commentary, that illustrated the current story situation and was used several times during each episode. These episodes are all from 1955. This library is located in the Whacky Dames and the Family Comedies and Drama Catalogs.

      I then performed the same operation on the both versions of Life of Riley Libraries. I discovered that the original series library, starring Jackie Gleason, contains the entire series, which consisted of only twenty-six episodes. The show was adapted for television on NBC by the producer of the radio series, Irving Brecher. It was seen for single season telecast from October 4, 1949 to March 28, 1950. Originally, William Bendix was to have appeared on both radio and television, but Bendix's RKO Radio Pictures movie contract prevented him from appearing on the television version. A later version of the series, starring Bendix, was produced after his movie contract expired. Both series libraries are located in the Funny Guys and the Family Comedies and Drama Catalogs.

      12/17/14 - Today decided to go ahead and finish the Roger Corman Film Library by adding the nine additional films I had bookmarked (I hope to find more). This library is located in both the Cult Films, and Feature Films Catalogs.

      12/16/14 - This afternoon I discovered that I already had eight Roger Corman films on the site, in the Horror, Sci-Fi and Cult Films Catalogs, so I decided add two more films and create a Roger Corman Film Library. Roger William Corman (born April 5, 1926) is an American independent film producer, director and actor. He has mostly worked on low-budget B movies. Much of Corman's work has an established critical reputation, such as his cycle of low budget films adapted from the tales of Edgar Allan Poe. In 2009, he was awarded an Honorary Academy Award. Corman mentored and gave a start to many young film directors such as Francis Ford Coppola, Ron Howard, Martin Scorsese and James Cameron. He helped launch the careers of actors Peter Fonda and Jack Nicholson. I have nine more of his films bookmarked, so more to come! The new library is located in the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror, the Feature Film Catalog, and the Catalog of Stars. I also added Dark Possession (1954) to the Studio One Library, and Midnight Manhunt (1945) to the East Side Kids Library.

      12/15/14 - Today I added seventeen episodes to the The Fugitive library, taking us to the end of Season 3. One more season to go.

      12/14/14 - Back in the TV Drama Catalog again, today I added seven episodes to the Dupont Theater library including: A Chain of Hearts, The Boy Who Walked to America, The Frightened Witness, The Major of St. Lo, The People and General Glancy, Dowry for Ilona and The Man Who Asked No Favors. THis more than doubles the size of the library from four episodes to eleven. More to come!

      12/13/14- Today I added six episodes to the Howdy Doody Show library including Howdy Doody shows from: July 2, 1948 (8 days after my own birth date, and the oldest show in the library), October 21, 1950, November 11, 1951, December 3, 1952, January 6, 1953 and Shrinking Machine (1958). Howdy Doody was an American children's television program (with circus and Western frontier themes) that was aired on the NBC network from December 27, 1947 until September 24, 1960. Buffalo Bob Smith hosted the show, and Howdy Doody and the gang entertained the kids in the Peanut Gallery. Also featured were popular characters Phineas T. Bluster (the Mayor of Doodytown), Clarabell the Clown, Princess Summerfall Winterspring, and Chief Thunderthud. The Howdy Doody Show Library is located in the Kid Shows Catalog.

      12/11/14 - Since it has proved to be such a popular library, and because there was so little left to do, I decided to go ahead and finish up The Detectives library by adding the final nineteen episodes (until such time as I find some more of them). This adventure/mystery series stars Robert Taylor and comes very highly recommended. Check it out!

      12/10/14 - I was watching an episode of The Daily Show this morning featuring an interview with Norman Lear. It got me to thinking about some of the shows he produced back in the 1970s, so I went looking for episodes of All in the Family, The Jeffersons, and my personal favorite, Sanford and Son. And I found lots of episodes of all three of them! So today I created a new Sanford and Son library with twenty-six episodes to start. Sanford and Son was an American sitcom, based on the BBC's Steptoe and Son, that ran on the NBC television network from January 14, 1972, to March 25, 1977. Known for its edgy racial humor, running gags and catch phrases, 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 (Redd Foxx) was known for his bigotry and cantankerousness, the role of Lamont Sanford (Demond Wilson) was that of a conscientious peacemaker. At times, both characters would involve themselves in schemes. I should mention that the many of the videos are mislabled as to their Titles, Season and Episode numbers, I had to watch a little of each one to make sure they all matched to the information I put on the player windows. The new library is available via the Funny Guys Catalog.

      12/9/14 - Today I added seven epsodes to the Whirlybirds library, including: Mountain Flight, Sky Net, Cycle of Terror, Seven Orchids, Blind Date, Robert Dixon, M.D., and Story of Sister Bridgit. Chuck and P.T. own a helicopter company that is hired to perform all types of jobs. Janet Culver was the original secretary being replaced by Helen Carter in the second season. These 29 episodes are all that I have found so far, but I will be on the lookout for more. The new library is located in the Action/Adventure Catalog.

      12/8/14 - Today I created a new The Detectives library with nineteen episodes so far. The Detectives was an American crime drama series which ran on ABC during its first two seasons, and on NBC during its third and final season. The series, starring motion picture star Robert Taylor, was produced by Four Star Television. Captain Matt Holbrook leads a squad of brave and tough detectives in a large, unnamed city. Instead of leading personal lives, they spend all of their time tracking murderers, thieves, corrupt cops, con-men and other lawbreakers. I have 38 episodes bookmarked at this point, so the library is exactly half finished, assuming I don't find anymore - hopefully I will. The new library is located in both the Action/Adventure Catalog, and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

      12/7/14 - Today I created a new Hogan's Heroes library with fifteen episodes to start. Hogan's Heroes was an American television sitcom set in a German prisoner of war (POW) camp during World War II. It ran from September 17, 1965, to July 4, 1971, 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. The entire series is available, 6 Seasons, so many more to come. It looks like it is an official channel, with commercials during the episodes (sorry about that) so I have hopes that it will stay around for a while. The new library is available via the Funny Guys Catalog.

      12/4/14 - Back in the TV Drama Catalog again today I added nine episodes to the General Electric Theater library, which nearly doubles the size of the library. The new additions include: The Eye of the Beholder, Blaze of Glory, No Hiding Place, Too Good With A Gun, With Malice Toward One, The Fenton Touch, No Skin Off Me, The Clown and The Eye of the Beholder

      12/2/14 - Today I added five more episodes to the Four Star Playhouse library, including: The Lady's Game, Love at Sea, The Doctor and the Countess, Marked Down and Woman Afraid

      I also created a new Dante library with nineteen of the twenty-six episodes that make up the series. Dante was a short-lived NBC adventure/drama television series starring Howard Duff as Willie Dante, a former gambler who operates Dante's Inferno, a San Francisco nightclub. Dick Powell had previously played Dante in eight episodes of his Four Star Playhouse drama series. Seven of those episodes are available on the Uncle Earl site. The titles are: Dante's Inferno (1952), The Squeeze (1953), The Hard Way (1953), The House Always Wins (1955), High Stakes (1956), A Long Way from Texas (1956) and The Stacked Deck (1956).

      12/1/14 - Today I added the last eighteen episodes to the Amos n' Andy TV Show library, which completes the series (actually, I have 73 of the 78 episodes of the original series, but that is all I have ever been able to find available - the previous library had the only 26 episodes when it ws taken off of YouTube, but I had the same 73 bookmarked).

      11/30/14 - Today I added ten episodes to the Amos n' Andy TV Show library, which finishes Season 3 (again, at least, all of them that I could find immediately). This was one of my all time favorite shows as a kid, so I am rebuilding the library in an expedited mode. I happened to notice something interesting today. I pretty much any case where a criminal appears in an episode, it is always a white man (such as The Kingfish Buys a Chair - Season 3, Episode 5). Interesting difference from the way the media tends to portray the races these days... I also added twelve episodes to the Four Star Playhouse library, including: To Whom It May Concern, Search in the Night, The Hard Way, Watch the Sunset, Award, The Case of Emily Cameron, The Officer and the Lady, Welcome Home, Lady of the Orchids, A Long Way From Texas, Bourbon Street and The Lost Silk Hat

      11/29/14 - Today I added six episodes to the Amos n' Andy TV Show library, which finishes Season 2 (at least, all of them that I could find immediately). Also added Fair Trial (1954) and The Wallet to the Four Star Playhouse library.

      11/27/14 - Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Today I added sixteen episodes to the Tightrope library bringing us to the end of the series, with thirty-five of the thirty-seven episodes intact. I will be on the lookout for those 2 missing episodes (#14 and #26) - stay tuned.

      11/26/14 - Tonight I added eighteen episodes to the Amos n' Andy TV Show library, which brings us to the end of the Season 1 and severak episdoes into the Season 2. Many more to come!

      11/24/14 - Oops! Missed a day. Today I created a new Amos n' Andy Radio library with fourteen episodes to start. While I was at it I added eight episodes to the Amos n' Andy TV Show library. I plan to grow this library fairly quickly, so stay tuned.

      11/21/14 - As I started to work on a new Amos n' Andy Radio library today, I was sidetracked when I came across several episodes of the Television version of the series. Some of you may remember that I once had a fairly sizable collection of the TV shows, but they all disapeared a couple of years ago. I have found episodes from all 4 Seasons of the show and decided to post a few of them before resuming work on the radio series. I have also created a Amos n' Andy Catalog to house the various versions as I continue to post them. At the moment I have two libraries - besides the TV show library I also have a catch all library consisting of screen tests for the TV show, an Amos n' Andy cartoon, and a documentary about the controversey surrounding the termination of the TV series in the 1960s. The Amos n' Andy Catalog is accessed via the Funny Guys Catalog. I plan to start posting the Radio series library tomorrow, so stay tuned.

      11/20/14 - More radio shows - today I created libraries for The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes starring Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce with twelve episodes to start, The Shadow starring Orson Wells as Lamont Cranston, with six episodes to start, and The Whistler mystery series with eleven episodes to start.

      11/19/14 - Today I added three more shows to the Uncle Earl's Old Time Radio Catalog. Hancock's Half Hour, a classic British radio comedy starring Tony Hancock (episodes of the TV version are also available on the site), with sixteen episodes to start, Father Knows Best, which like the TV series stars Robert Young, but has an entirely different cast otherwise, with five episodes to start, and The Adventures of Phillip Marlowe, starring Van Heflin, with six episodes to start. Also added Christmas Memory to the Window on Main Street library, another TV series starring Robert Young.

      11/18/14 - I started this project yesterday at the suggestion of my friend, Frank Casian, to create a new Catalog called Uncle Earl's Old Time Radio. So far I have created six libraries: Inner Sanctum mystery anthology series with fouteen episodes, The Lone Ranger western drama with nine episodes, Our Miss Brooks comedy with seven episodes, W.C. Fields on the Radio with six episodes, My Favorite Husband (starring Lucille Ball - long before she was known as Lucy Ricardo) with six episodes, and a more modern Mystery series (1977) called CBS Radio Mystery Theater with sixteen episodes to start (many more to come). The new catalog is located on the Main Library page of the Uncle Earl site. There are a lot of old radios shows out on YouTube and the Internet Archive so expect this catalog to grow exponentially.

      11/16/14 - This evening I created a new Markham library with eighteen episodes so far. Ray Milland plays private investigator and attorney Roy Markham (previously introduced in a June 1958 Suspicion episode, "Eye For An Eye"). As a successful lawyer, he had the leisure to take detective cases based on his own interest. His fees could vary from the very considerable to nothing for those who desperately needed his services but had few financial means. Markham's cases could take him almost anywhere in the world, although he was based in New York City. This is a little over half of the number of episodes that I have found of this 100+ episode series, so there are a few more yet to come. And I hope to finds lots of them eventually. Ray Milland was a great actor - I highly recommend you check this out. The new library is located in both the Action/Adventure Catalog, and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

      11/12/14 - Back in the Television Drama Catalog yet again. Today I added Whizzer to The Star and the Story library, Days of Wine and Roses to the Playhouse 90 library, and Looking Glass House and Interlude to the Four Star Playhouse library. Also created a new Schlitz Playhouse library with eighteen episodes to start.

      11/11/14 - We had a major setback today. I lost four of my favorite Detective series - Mr. Lucky, Mike Hammer, The Untouchables, and M-Squad. Mr. Lucky included the entire series (around 22 episodes), likewise Mike Hammer. M-Squad and The Untouchables were building toward the entire series'. These were all uploaded to YouTube by the same collector, whose channel was terminated for "multiple third party complaints". Sorry for the inconvenience ( a special apology to my friend, Cathy - who was steadily making her way through the M-Squad episodes. The saddest part is that there is no telling exactly what series triggered the termination - it could have been any one of them, or another series altogether (or even just a single video), - but ALL of them were taken down. YouTube (aka Google) drives me crazy sometimes.

      11/8/14 - Today I added eleven matches to the Golden Age of Wrestling Singles Matches library, located in the Golden Age of Wrestling Catalog.

      11/6/14 - Back in the TV Drama catalog yet again. Today I added A Spray of Bullets (1955), to the Four Star Playhouse library and five episodes to the Playhouse 90 library, including: Requiem for a Heavyweight (1956) The Comedian (1957) Bomber's Moon (1958) A Town Has Turned to Dust (1958) Heart of Darkness (1958)

      Since there was only one episode (split into two parts) in the library previously, this sextuples the size of the library! Playhouse 90 was an American television anthology series that aired on CBS from 1956 to 1960 for a total of 133 episodes. The show was produced at CBS Television City near the Los Angeles district of Hollywood in California. Since live anthology drama series of the mid-1950s usually were hour-long shows, the title highlighted the network's intention to present something unusual: a weekly series of hour-and-a-half-long dramas rather than 60-minute plays. Then I created a new Goodyear Playhouse library with three episodes so far. The Goodyear Television Playhouse is an American anthology series that was telecast live on NBC from 1951 to 1957 during the "Golden Age of Television". Sponsored by Goodyear, Goodyear alternated sponsorship with Philco, and the Philco Television Playhouse was seen on alternate weeks. In 1955, the title was shortened to The Goodyear Playhouse and it aired on alternate weeks with The Alcoa Hour. The three series were essentially the same, with the only real difference being the name of the sponsor. Also created a new Telephone Time library with eight episodes of this 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 was directed by Arthur Hiller.

      11/4/14 - Even on Election Day, I can't seem to get out of the TV Drama Catalog (maybe it is appropriate). Today I created a new The Pepsi-Cola Playhouse library with eleven episodes to start. The Pepsi-Cola Playhouse was an American dramatic anthology series that aired on ABC from 1953 to 1955, sponsored by Pepsi-Cola. The show was hosted by Arlene Dahl (1953), Anita Colby (1954), and, finally, Polly Bergen (1955). The new library is located in (where else), the Television Drama Catalog.

      11/1/14 - Tonight I decided to work on my Television Drama Catalog some more. I added The Rabbit (1951) to the Studio One library, and five episodes to the Drama Specials library, including: SilverTheatre: Closeup (1950) Robert Montgomery Presents: The Ringmaster (1952) Short Short Dramas: Equal Partners (1952) Matinee Theater: The House of Usher (1956) Armchair Theatre: The Criminals (1958)

      Then I added Season, Episode and Plot Summary information to the player pages in this library. I also created a new Damon Runyon Theater library, with four episodes so far, and an Errol Flynn Theatre library, with two episodes.

      10/30/14 - Tonight I added the next twenty episodes to the M Squad library, which takes us to the 9th episode of Season 2.

      10/27/14 - I hit a milestone of sorts today by posting the 6th Season (thirty-three episodes) of the Have Gun Will Travel library, which brings us to the end of the series with all the episodes intact. Starring Richard Boone, this was one of the best "thinking man" western series', in my humble opinion. I can't recommend it highly enough.

      10/26/14 - Today I created a new The Star and the Story library, with eight episodes to start. A television anthology series which aired 1955–1956 in first-run syndication. A filmed half-hour series, episodes were approx. 25 minutes excluding commercials. Produced by Four Star Productions, it was similar in some respects to Four Star Playhouse and Stage 7. Henry Fonda was the host. With a new cast each week, the series featured a wide range of actors, often well-known character actors such as Edmond O'Brien and occasionally emerging stars such as Joanne Woodward (who appear in the episode Dark Stranger together). The new library is located in the Television Drama Catalog. Tonight I added two episodes to the Life With Elizabeth library, making a grand total of eighteen in the library. There is very little information available about this show, which ran from 1952 until 1955, and was the first starring vehicle for Betty White. The low-budget comedy was produced by and filmed at a local Los Angeles TV station where White and co-star Del Moore were on the staff (the series was originally a live production on KLAC-TV in 1952). George Tibbles wrote every episode of the series. Betty White received her first Primetime Emmy Award nomination for her work on this series. I only recently found copies with actual titles, most of which I already had on the site, I have replaced the entire library with the new versions, which are also better quality videos. All of my Betty White libraries can be found in the Betty White Catalog.

      10/24/14 - Today I added three episodes to the Armstrong Circle Theatre Library, which more than doubles the current library. Armstrong Circle Theatre was an American anthology drama television series which ran from 1950 to 1957 on NBC, and then until 1963 on CBS. It alternated weekly with The U.S. Steel Hour. The series featured original dramas by noted writers. Its guidelines specifically called for the avoidance of violence. In 1955 the show expanded to an hour and began to emphasize dramatized versions of real-life contemporary events - including the sinking of the SS Andrea Doria and a documentary on the history of Communism in the Soviet Union. Although this show ran for many years, on 2 different networks, there don't seem to be many of them available. I'll keep looking - I expect I might find episodes that were shown in syndiction under a different title.

      10/23/14 - Today created a new Rich Man Poor Man (1976) Library including the entire ABC miniseries. An examination of the trials and tribulations of the Jordache family, from the period following World War II to the late 1960s, this 1976 American television miniseries was based on the novel of the same name by Irwin Shaw and aired on ABC in one or two hour episodes mostly on Monday nights over seven weeks, beginning February 1. It was produced by Universal Television. The film stars Peter Strauss, Nick Nolte and Susan Blakely. The new library is located in the Television Drama Catalog.

      10/20/14 Today I added Emergency (1955) and The Greatest Man in the World (1955) to the Stage 7 Library.

      10/18/14 - Today I created a new Starsky & Hutch (1975–1979) Library with twenty-six episodes to start. Two streetwise cops bust criminals in their red-and-white Ford Torino with the help of police snitch called Huggy Bear. Stars: David Soul, Paul Michael Glaser, Antonio Fargas. Note: These episodes have Spanish subtitles. I have to admit that I never watched this show. 1975 - 1979 were some pretty busy years for me in terms of establishing my careers both as a musician and in the printing business - I really didn't watch much TV in those days

      10/17/14 - Today I added twenty episodes to the Judd for the Defense Library bringing us to the end of the the 2nd Season and of the series. Until I find more of the missing episodes (I have 46 of the 50 that make up the series), this library is finished. 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. The picture quality of some of these videos is pretty poor sorry about that. Also added The Man Who Walked Out on Himself and Never Explain to the Four Star Playhouse library.

      10/14/14 - Today I added sixteen episodes to the Evening at the Improv library. Bud Freidmans Classic showcase for stand up comedy. All of these episodes are in order, listed by the guest host and are from Hulu - sorry about the commercials. Forty more episodes to go!

      10/13/14 - Today I created a new Tightrope library with eighteen episodes to start. There are only 37 in the entire series so we are just about half-way there. Mike Conners (in his first starring role) played an unnamed police undercover agent who infiltrated organized crime to expose the leaders and their plots. His name changed with each episode in order to protect him. Originally, he was to be named Nick Stone but eventually, he was occasionally called "Nick." The new library is located in both the Action/Adventure Catalog, and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

      10/11/14 - Today I added the 3rd Season (twenty-four episodes) to the the The Wild Wild West library. One more season to go!

      10/10/14 - Today I created a new M Squad library with the first twenty-seven episodes to start. The hard-hitting adventures of tough Lieutenant Frank Ballinger, a member of the Chicago Police Department's M Squad, an elite crime-fighting unit. Stars: Lee Marvin (in his first TV starring role), Paul Newlan, Gail Kobe. There were three seasons of this show, and I believe I will have the entire series when I am through, so many more to come! The new library is located in both the Action/Adventure Catalog, and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

      10/9/14 - Today I added twenty-six episodes to the Have Gun Will Travel library, bringing us to the end of the 5th Season. Many more to come!

      10/7/14 - Today I added Shadowed (1953), Meet a Lonely Man (1954), Desert Encounter (1956), and Ladies on His Mind (1953) to the Four Star Playhouse library.

      10/5/14 - Today I created a new Ernie Kovacs Catalog, which includes an Ernie Kovacs Show Library with one full episodes (so far) and thirty-five individual comedy bits from the show, The Best of Ernie Kovacs, a five-part PBS documentary series, the Take a Good Look Library of Kovacs' own game show from 1959, which was already on the site, and an Ernie Kovacs on What's My Line? library with seven of his appearances on that game show. Finally, I added Hulu's Ernie Kovacs Collection, with five episodes (sorry about the commercials). The new catalog is avaiable via the Funny Guys Catalogs, and the Catalog of Stars. Ernie Kovacs' uninhibited, often ad-libbed, and visually experimental comedic style came to influence numerous television comedy programs for years after his death in an automobile accident. Many iconic and diverse shows are credited with having been influenced by Kovacs, such as Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In, Saturday Night Live, The Uncle Floyd Show, Captain Kangaroo, Sesame Street, and The Electric Company. Also added sixteen videos to the Memphis Wrestling Promos/Angles library, and five matches to the Memphis Wrestling Tag Team Match library.

      10/4/14 - Today I went looking for episods of the 1966 Batman series at the suggestion of a friend. I had no lck whatsoever finding any of them, but I did stumble across anther DC Comics hero and so created a new The Green Hornet Library with the entire series (twenty-six episodes). The success of ABC's 1960s Batman series prompted the network to adapt the venerable radio and movie-serial character. The series starred Van Williams as the Hornet, and, introduced martial artist Bruce Lee to American television audiences as his partner & valet, Kato. Unlike the supposedly campy but actually villain-driven and action comedy-heavy Batman series, The Green Hornet was played straight. Though it was canceled after one season, Lee became a major star of martial arts movies. Lee's popularity in Hong Kong, where he was raised, was such that the show was marketed there as The Kato Show! The new library is available via the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror, and the Action/Adventure Catalogs.

      10/3/14 - Little by little I have finished rebuilding my Gunsmoke Library. This brings us to the end of Season 7. Going forward, we will be entering uncharted territory, which means I will be building library and player pages from scratch. So I plan to take the next phase slowly, and will hold off for a few months before I take the next step. I want to make sure that this library isn't going to vanish into thin air again, as it has now 4 times so far. Stay tuned. I also added fifteen episodes to The Fugitive library, taking us to Season 3, episode 4. More ro come!

      9/27/14 - Tonght I added twenty-two matches to the Golden Age of Wrestling Single Matches library. This increases the number of matches in the library by more than 30%. Also added five matches to the Golden Age of Wrestling Tag Team Matches library. The Golden Age of Wrestling Libraries cover matches from the early 1950s to the 1970s. Mostly representing Eastern and Mid-Western US promotions.

      9/26/14 - Today I added twenty-three episodes to the Medic library, which completes the library until such time as I find the remaining 8 episodes. This series starred Richard Boone and can be found (where else?) in the Richard Boone Catalog.

      9/25/14 - Today I added twenty-one episodes to the Four Just Men Library, which completes the series. The Four Just Men was a British 1959 Sapphire Films production for ITC Entertainment. It ran for one season of 39 half-hour monochrome episodes. The series features four men who first met during World War II. The men later reassembled and decided to fight for justice and against tyranny, using money set aside for the purpose by their late commanding officer. The series was loosely based on a novel by Edgar Wallace. The complete series library is located in the Action/Adventure Catalog. Also the 3rd Season episodes to the Gunsmoke Library.

      9/24/14 - This morning I created a new Judd for the Defense Library with twenty-two episodes so far. This completes the 1st Season library until I find the four missing episodes. 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. The picture quality of some of these videos is pretty poor sorry about that. The new library is available via the Television Drama Catalog, and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

      9/23/14 - This morning I began the process of restoring the Gunsmoke Library by posting the first two seasons. I am doing this with as little fanfare as possible, which is why I don't intend to mention it on Facebook. This will be the fourth time I have rebuilt the library. I decided to go ahead and work on it because I have been monitoring several channels on YouTube that have Gunsmoke episodes. One has now been up for more than a year and a half and has had hundreds of thousands of views. The second reason is that, because the library was there previously, I have a whole lot of library pages and viewer pages already built. Thus, in order to restore a library page it is only necessary to open the viewer pages and paste the new identifier code in two places - which takes only a few seconds to accomplish. I was able to restore the first four library pages this morning in around a half hour. Many more to come - unless they start disappearing again...

      9/22/14 - Today I added twenty-four videos to the Grateful Dead LIVE! Library, taking us up to the year 1989. Included are twenty-three concert videos and a documentary about the making of the album, "Built to Last" - which was their thirteenth and last studio disk. I still have about 55 of these to post so stay tuned!

      9/21/14 - This morning, upon reading about the passing of Polly Bergen, I realised that I had quite a few of her Television appearances and one feature film already on the site, so I whipped up a Polly Bergen Library with eleven TV appearances and two of her Feature Films. Polly Bergen (born Nellie Paulina Burgin; July 14, 1930 – September 20, 2014) was an American actress, singer, television host, and writer. She won an Emmy in 1958 for her performance in The Helen Morgan Story, and was nominated for a Tony for Best Actress in a Musical for Follies in 2001. Her film work included 1962's Cape Fear and 1963's The Caretakers, for which she was nominated for a Golden Globe. She hosted her own variety show for one season. The new library is available via the Variety Shows Catalogs, the Feature Films and the Catalog of Stars.

      9/20/14 - This afternoon I added eight concerts to the Grateful Dead LIVE! Library, which doesn't sound like a lot, but before I posted those eight concert videos, I spent most of the afternoon re-arranging the bookmarks I have gathered so far into chronological order. Now that that task is done, I am free to start adding them in to the library in order - but not yet...I am done on this project for today, but will soon begin again to add them - there are 79 in the bookmarks folder so far. The library currently has just entered the year 1986 - the concerts range up to 1995 - and for stretches they appear within a week of each other - so if you ever wanted to just go follow the Grateful Dead back in the 80s and 90s, this could be your chance! Stay tuned!

      9/19/14 - Today I posted the entire Mr. Lucky series, with all thirty-four of the episodes. Mr. Lucky is an honest professional gambler with extraordinary luck. He carries a pocket watch whose chimes play the first five notes of the Mr. Lucky theme music. He and Andamo operate a floating casino aboard a luxury yacht anchored outside an American port city. John Vivyan played the title character Mr. Lucky. Ross Martin portrayed Andamo. The series ran f0r one season in 1959-60. The new library is available via the the Television Drama Catalog, the Action/Adventure Catalog, and the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

      9/18/14 - Tonight I added the last twelve episodes to the Adventures in Paradise library, thus completing the library until I find more of the missing episodes from the series. Stay Tuned.

      9/17/14 - Tonight I added four matches to the Big Time Wrestling Singles Matches library, 2 of which featured the Sheik (Ed Farhat). I then created a new The Sheik! library a collection of twenty-one matches, promos etc., featuring The Sheik, 6 of which were already on the site. Edward George "Ed" Farhat (June 9, 1924 - January 18, 2003) was an American professional wrestler best known as by his ring name The Sheik (or The Original Sheik to distinguish him from The Iron Sheik, a wrestler from the 1980s). He is also one of the originators of what became the hardcore wrestling style, and the uncle of ECW legend Sabu. The new library is located in the Big Time Wrestling/IWA - Catalog.

      9/16/14 - Today I added seventeen episodes to the Red Skelton Show library, which effectively completes the library until I find more episodes to post. Also added an episode of "What's My Line" featuring Betty Hutton to the Other Betty Hutton TV Appearances library. Also added fifteen episodes to the The Fugitive library, which filled in the 1st Season and completes it. Many more to come!

      9/12/14 - Today I added eighteen episodes to the The Rifleman library and then re-arranged it into proper order and added season episode and plot summary information too the player pages. The Rifleman was one of those "thinking man's Westerns" and a particular favorite of mine as a kid. Most of the episodes in the library are from Hulu (sorry about the commercials). There are 17 episodes yet to be posted, so more to come!

      9/9/14 - Today I added thirty-one episodes to the Broken Arrow library, which completes the library until such time as I find more episodes (at this point I have 58 of the 72 episodes that make up the series). As I was searching once more for the missing episodes, I ran across the 1950 feature film starring Jimmy Stewart and Jeff Chandler and decided to add it at the end of the library (and also to the Western Films library).

      9/8/14 - Today I added eighteen episodes to the Adventures in Paradise library. This library now includes all of the episodes I have found so far of the 1st and 2nd Seasons and eight episodes of the 3rd Season, and this puts us withing striking distance of completing the library (until I manage to track down the few episodes from all three seasons that have eluded me thus far). A while back I posted up several episodes to the Betty Hutton Show library. I looked around tonight and found a five of her Feature Films and eleven Other Betty Hutton TV Appearances. I then created a new Betty Hutton Catalog to hold the three libraries. The new catalog is accessed via the Whacky Dames Catalog, the Feature Films Catalog, the Musical Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. I also found yet another Joan Rivers TV show and so created a That Show with Joan Rivers (1968-69) with fifteen episodes from Hulu (sorry about the commercials). This was the original Joan Rivers Show (and was sometimes called that). There are 65 episodes available, so, many more to come!

      9/6/14 - Today I filled out the Richard Boone Catalog somewhat by adding the last five currently available episodes of the The Richard Boone Show. There were only 25 episodes in the original series, we now have 20 of them. I added one episode to the Medic library. I also created a new Other Richard Boone TV Appearances library with four episodes of What's My Line? so far - one with Boone as the mystery guest and the rest with him on the panel. These were also added to the What's My Line? library. I will be looking for more shows to feature. I added the first eleven episodes of the 5th Season to the Have Gun Will Travel library. Less than two seasons left to complete the library! And finally, I created a new The Beatles library with sixteen videos, mosty live concert footage and a copy of the Magical Mystery Tour movie. The new library can be accessed via the Musical Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      9/5/14 - In celebration of the life of comedienne, Joan Rivers, who passed away yesterday, I have created a new Joan Rivers Catalog which contains a library of her Stand-Up Comedy, with fourteen videos thus far. The new catalog also includes an Other TV Appearances library with ten videos, an Interviews library with seven in-depth interviews, a Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best? library with fourteen shows from the 2nd and 4th Seasons of the We-TV reality series, and sixteen episodes of her web video series, In Bed with Joan, and is located in both the Whacky Dames Catalog, and the Catalog of Stars. Joan Alexandra Rosenberg (June 8, 1933 – September 4, 2014), known by her stage name Joan Rivers, was an American actress, comedian, writer, producer, and television host, best known for her stand-up comedy. Rivers first came to prominence in 1965 as a guest on The Tonight Show, a pioneering late-night program with interviews and comedy, hosted by Johnny Carson, whom she acknowledged as her mentor. The show established her particular comic style, poking fun at celebrities, but also at herself, often joking about her extensive plastic surgery. When she launched a rival program, The Late Show, Carson never spoke to her again. She went on to host a successful daytime slot, The Joan Rivers Show, which won her a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Talk Show Host. She also authored 12 best-selling memoir and humor books, and provided comic material for stage and television. As an actress, Rivers was nominated for the Tony Award for Best Actress in a Play in 1994 for her performance in the title role in Sally Marr...and her escorts. Rivers died on September 4, 2014, following serious complications—including cardiac arrest—during a procedure on her vocal cords at a clinic on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.

      9/4/14 - Today I created a new The Swamp Fox (1959-60) library with six episodes of the Walt Disney series. The Swamp Fox is a television series produced by Walt Disney and starring Leslie Nielsen as American Revolutionary War hero Francis Marion. Francis Marion (c. 1732 – February 27, 1795) was a military officer who served in the American Revolutionary War. Acting with Continental Army and South Carolina militia commissions, he was a persistent adversary of the British in their occupation of South Carolina in 1780 and 1781, even after the Continental Army was driven out of the state in the Battle of Camden. Due to his irregular methods of warfare, he is considered one of the fathers of modern guerrilla warfare. Although this series is comprised of 8 episodes, so far, I have only found 6. The new library is located in the Leslie Nielson Catalog.

      9/2/14 - Today I had a suggestion via email that I post the Police Squad (1982) series which is available on YouTube. I searched for it and found all six episodes of the series. Sight-gags and non-sequiturs dominate this spoof of police dramas. The six episodes formed the basis for later very successful "Naked Gun" movies. Stars: Leslie Nielson, Alan North, Rex Hamilton. This got me to thinking about Leslie Nielson (11 February 1926 – 28 November 2010). Nielsen's career began in dramatic roles on television during what is known as "Television's Golden Age", appearing in almost 50 live programs in 1950 alone. His distinctive voice narrated several documentaries and commercials but his early work as a dramatic actor was uneventful, although highly prolific! He hit his stride with spoof style comedy in later years and the rest is history. So I did some more searches and came up with nineteen Other TV Appearances on such shows as Tales of Tomorrow, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Suspense and others. Several of them were already on the site. I then did a search for Leslie Nielson Movies and found fouteen of those. The three new libraries are accessible via the Leslie Nielson Catalog, located in the Feature Films and Funny Guys Catalogs, plus the Catalog of Stars.

      9/1/14 - Having completed the library for the original (Jeff Miller) version of the Lassie series, I realized that I was very near to completing Jon Provost version as well so I decided to push forward and posted the final eighteen episodes of series available on Hulu. This completes Season 5 of the Lassie Library. Since nothing past Season 5 of the series is currently available, this completes both of the Lassie TV show libraries - available via the Lassie Catalog, which now also includes a Lassie Film Library containing three feature films. Also added one episode to the Trouble with Father library.

      8/31/14 - I now have completed the first 3 seasons of the Lassie (aka Jeff's Collie) Library. I haven't mentioned it because it was so disheartening, but last week the entire library vanished. I had taken them all from a single YouTube channel which had been terminated. Since then, I have found several channels including episodes of the first Lassie TV series and have managed to complete the first season except for one episode, all of the 2nd Season and 3rd Season episodes, plus thirteen epsodes of the 4th Season. After Episode 13 (Transition), Jeff Miller (Tommy Rettig) left the show and the rest of the season continued starring Jon Provost as Timmy Martin. Those remaining Season 4 episodes are not currently available, so this library is complete for the time being.

      8/26/14 - Today I added yet another new library to the Richard Boone Catalog - The Richard Boone Show, with fourteen episodes so far. 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 Warren Stevens and Harry Morgan. They rotated parts freely; each appeared in most episodes, and each starred in at least one. The regular writers included Clifford Odets. There are 25 episodes in the complete series and I have 20 bookmarked - so more to come! Also added five episodes to the Trouble with Father library (also known as the Stu Erwin Show), arranged the library into Season and Episode order and added plot summary info to all of the player pages. I then did some searches and found eight Stuart Erwin Films, so I decided to create a Stuart Erwin Catalog to house the two libraries. The new Catalog can be accessed via the the Family Comedies and Drama Catalog, the Feature Films Catalog and in the Catalog of Stars.

      8/25/14 - Today I completed the Mork & Mindy library with the last seventeen of the thirty-nine episodes available on Hulu.

      8/24/14 - I have some good news and some bad news concerning my Mork & Mindy library. The good news is that I have started rebuilding it, and that the new library will contain some episodes from Season 3 (the old library had no Season 3 episodes). The bad news is that the new version of the library will contain only those episodes available on Hulu, which means they will have commercials in them (sorry about that), the seasons will NOT be complete (only 39 selected episodes are available), and most unfortunately, it means that International viewers of the site will not be able to watch them. I have restored the first two seasons thus far (22 episodes total), and will undertake to build the 3rd Season library sometime in the next few days. More to come!

      8/22/14 - Today I created a new Ben Casey library with four episodes so far, which is all that I could find to this point. Hopefully I will find more. Ben Casey was a gritty, realistic hospital drama featuring mainly Dr. Casey against the medical establishment, at first under the watchful eye of Dr. Zorba and later under the thumb of Chief of Surgery Dr. Freeland. Stars: Vince Edwards, Sam Jaffe and Jeanne Bates. The new library is located in the Television Drama Catalog.

      8/21/14 - Tonight I added twelve episodes to the Medic library, after Mike Luck reminded me on Facebook that it starred Richard Boone of Have Gun Will Travel fame. This was another of those libraries I created back at the beginning of the site in 2010 - I had completely forgotten about it until Mike mentioned it too me. Before I added the 12 episodes I cleaned up the library and put it into proper order and added season episode and plot summary information too the player pages. Then I created a Richard Boone Catalog to house the two libraries, Later I will also build a Richard Boone Film, and Other TV Appearances libraries. The new Catalog is available via the Western Shows Catalog, the Television Drama Catalog, the Action/Adventure Catalog and Catalog of Stars.

      8/19/14 - Today I added fifteen episodes to the Have Gun Will Travel library, bringing us to the end of the 4th Season. Two more seasons to come!

      8/18/14 - Today I found ten episodes to add to the Stage 7 Library,which gives us 20 of the 25 known episodes. While I was at it I decided to look over some of the other libraries in the Television Drama Catalog. I added The Girl on the Park Bench to the Four Star Playhouse library, and then added Nightmare by Day to the Climax! library and arranged the library episodes into their proper Season and Episode order and added plot summary information where there was none - or else it was incomplete in one way or another.

      8/17/14 - Today I painted my shower...but when I finished with that, I created a new Klondike Library (1960-61), including fifteen of the seventeen episodes that comprise the series. Klondike was a half-hour American Western television series starring Ralph Taeger and James Coburn that aired on NBC. The series was set during the early days of the Klondike Gold Rush 1897 in the town of Skagway in the Alaskan Klondike region. Taeger played the "good guy" Mike Halliday and Coburn portrayed the con man Jeff Durain. For James Coburn, this was his first starring role in a series - and his character only appeared in 10 episodes. He was still six years away from his star-turn in the "Our Man Flint" movies. Interestingly, and somewhat surprisingly I had never heard of this TV series until I found these episodes on YouTube! I next went looking for James Coburn Films, and found nine of them so far. As I was searching for movies I also found fourteen of his Other James Coburn TV Appearances. So, the only thing left was to create a James Coburn Catalog to house it all. The new catalog is accessed via the Western Shows Catalog, the Action/Adventure Catalog and Catalog of Stars.

      8/15/14 - Today, in celebration of the life of actress, Lauren Bacall, who passed away on Tuesday, I created a new Lauren Bacall Catalog, which includes four of her Feature Films, six of her Television Appearances and five Interviews/Documentaries featuring Ms. Bacall. Lauren Bacall (born Betty Joan Perske - September 16, 1924 – August 12, 2014) was an American actress of film, stage, and musical theatre, known for her distinctive husky voice and sultry looks. She first emerged as a leading lady in the Humphrey Bogart film To Have and Have Not (1944) and continued on in the film noir genre. Bacall also worked on Broadway in musicals, earning Tony Awards for Applause in 1970 and Woman of the Year in 1981. Her performance in the movie The Mirror Has Two Faces (1996) earned her a Golden Globe Award and an Academy Award nomination. In 1999, Bacall was ranked 20th out of the 25 actresses on the AFI's 100 Years...100 Stars list by the American Film Institute. In 2009, she was selected by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to receive an Academy Honorary Award "in recognition of her central place in the Golden Age of motion pictures."

      8/14/14 - Tonight I created a new Four Just Men Library with eighteen episodes of the 39 episode series. I have all but one of these bookmarked so we're only about half-way to the end of the series. More to come! The Four Just Men was a British 1959 Sapphire Films production for ITC Entertainment. It ran for one season of 39 half-hour monochrome episodes. The series features four men who first met during World War II. The men later reassembled and decided to fight for justice and against tyranny, using money set aside for the purpose by their late commanding officer. The series was loosely based on a novel by Edgar Wallace. The new library is located in the Action/Adventure Catalog.

      8/12/14 - I woke up this morning to the tragic news that Robin Williams passed away yesterday - apparently having hung himself at his home in Tiburon, CA. Mr. Williams had lived with his wife of two years there. She told news media that he had been depressed lately. I decided that I would try and finish the Mork & Mindy library, and thought I had all of the remaining episodes bookmarked. I discovered that the playlist I had bookmarked of the 3rd season has been taken down, and I can't find any 3rd season episodes despite an extensive search. Curiously, I did find that the 4th season playlist I had bookmarked IS still there. Some of you may remember that I posted the 4th season in July of last year after Jonathan Winters (who was one of that season's cast members) passed away. Those episodes soon vanished and that is when I went looking for more and found all of them and bookmarked them for future posting. A year later, when the videos were still available, I decided to start building the library. So I decided to go ahead and post the 4th Season (twenty-two episodes) to the Mork & Mindy library, including a TV Movie that looks inside the making of the series and the effects it had on Robin Williams and those around him. I also created a Robin Williams Stand-Up library with six concert films, a Robin Williams Film library with two feature films, and a Robin Williams Other TV Appearances library with eight interviews, two episodes of the Richard Pryor Show and a Wildlife Special on Dolphins. To house all of the above, I built a Robin Williams Catalog which now resides in the Funny Guys Catalog, and also the Catalog of Stars.

      8/11/14 - Today I added four episodes to the Death Valley Days library, and then arranged the entire library into the proper Season and Episode order. Another housekeeping task with one of the earliest libraries on the site. Since I only have one or two episodes from the first 10 Seasons, I have not divided the library into Seasons, but all of the episodes are in chronological order and the pages have the Season and Episode information, plus plot summaries, where they were available. Death Valley Days featured stories of the old American West, primarily the Death Valley, California area. It began as a radio drama, which ran from 1930 until 1945. When it came to television, on March 1st, 1952, it became the longest running, most successful syndicated Western series ever, running to 452 episodes before ending on April 25, 1970. The stories used in the series were based on actual events. The series aired for 18 Seasons and there are episodes from all of the seasons here, although only 57 of the 452 known episodes are in the library. Hopefully, I will find more of them.

      8/9/14 - Today I added ten episodes to the Adventures in Paradise library, which completes the first season (until I manage to find the 13 episodes that have eluded me thus far). More to come! Also created a new Broken Arrow library with twenty-six episodes so far, includng the Pilot, which was an episodes of The 20th Century-Fox Hour (starring Ricardo Montalban as Cochise). Broken Arrow was a Western series which ran on ABC-TV in prime time from 1956 through 1958 on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. Eastern time. Repeat episodes were shown by ABC on Sunday afternoons during the 1959–60 season. Selected repeats were then shown once again in prime time (on Sunday evenings) during the summer of 1960. I have 59 of the 71 episodes of this entire series bookmarked, so many more to come. The new library is available via the Western Shows Catalog.

      8/8/14 - Today I created a Johnny Cash LIVE Concert library with twelve concerts so far. The most impressive thing about this library is the scope of his fame internationally. Also created a new Johnny Cash Film library with the only two theatrical films Cash starred in. Both libraries are located in the Johnny Cash Catalog.

      8/7/14 - Tonight I created a new Johnny Cash Other TV Appearances library with eighteen programs featuring Cash from the early 1950s to 2004, and added a Second Season Episode and a Compilation video to the Johnny Cash Show library. Both libraries are located in the Johnny Cash Catalog. Also added one episode of the Steve Allen Show from December of 1957.

      8/6/14 - Tonight I created a new Johnny Cash Catalog, with two libraries so far. Johnny Cash Show library and the Johnny Cash Christmas Specials library, containing seven epsiodes so far. The new library can also be found in the Christmas Collection Library. The new Catalog is available via the Musical Shows Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      8/4/14 - At the suggestion of my long-time friend Margaret Wilburn, on Facebook, I have created a Johnny Cash Show library with the first twelve episodes of the first season of the series. I hope to be able to add more, although I have yet to find any beyond these initial 12 episodes. Later on I will create a Johnny Cash Catalog - while looking for the Johnny Cash Show episodes, I came across several of the Cash Family Christmas Specials, as well as several other TV appearances and about twenty live concert videos from all over the world. This will take some time to put together but I will probably start with the Christmas Specials later this week.

      7/31/14 - Tonight I added twenty-six episodes to the Mork & Mindy library. This gets us to the end of the second season. More to come!

      7/30/14 - More Housekeeping - today I reorganized the I Married Joan library into the proper order and added Season, Episode, and plot summary information too the player pages. I haven't found any more episodes lately, but the current library is fairly extensive, with the bulk of the first season, plus a goodly number of Season 2 and 3 episodes. I Married Joan was an American sitcom that aired on NBC from 1952 to 1955. It starred veteran vaudeville, film, and radio comedienne-comedy actress Joan Davis as the manic, scatterbrained wife of a mild-mannered community judge, the Honorable Bradley Stevens (Jim Backus). This library is also located in the Whacky Dames Catalog.

      7/29/14 - Tonight, in another "housekeeping" operation, I added five episodes to the Betty Hutton Show library, and also arranged the episodes into Season and Episode order and added plot summary information too the player pages. This library is yet another of the ones I built during the first few months after I created the site. The Betty Hutton Show is an American sitcom that aired on CBS's Thursday night schedule. The series, which was originally entitled Goldie, would retain its original title during its syndication run. Hutton stars as Goldie, a showgirl-turned-manicurist. One of Goldie's regular customers is a millionaire, Mr. Strickland. After Mr. Strickland suddenly dies, Goldie discovers that he has left everything he owns, including his 60 million dollar fortune and his three children, to her. This is another of my personal recommendations. I had never seen the show until I found four episodes on the Internet Archive in 2010 and found it quite charming. One of the new additions is the pilot episode so you get to see how the whole story first developed - which helps to put the other eight episodes into perspective. This library is located in the Whacky Dames Catalog.

      7/28/14 - Tonight I added the first ten episodes of Season 3 to the Peter Gunn library. This effectively finishes the library until I find the remaining 28 episodes of the Season 3. I am hopefull that they will eventually appear on the YouTube channel where I found the first 10 episodes of Season 3.

      7/27/14 - Today I added six episodes to the Make Room for Daddy library. This more than doubled the size of the library from four episodes to ten. I also arranged the episodes into Season and Episode order and added plot summary information too the player pages. This library is another of the ones I built during the first few months after I created the site. So far these ten episodes are all that I have found - but I will be on the look out for more. The Danny Thomas Show (known as Make Room for Daddy during the first three seasons) is an American sitcom which ran from 1953-1957 on ABC and from 1957-1964 on CBS. In March 1953, Danny Thomas first signed the contract for the show with ABC and chose Desilu Studios to film it using its three-camera method. Two proposed titles during pre-production were The Children's Hour and Here Comes Daddy. While I was at it, I also found two other Danny Thomas TV appearances already on the site, so I also included them in a new Other Danny Thomas TV Appearances Library along with four other shows I found today. I then found three episodes of Make Room for Granddaddy, a short-lived revival of the Make Room for Daddy series starring three of the original stars of the previous series. Finally, I created a new Danny Thomas Catalog to house the three libraries. The new Catalog is located in the Funny Guys Catalog, and also the Catalog of Stars.

      7/23/14 - Today I created a new Whirlybirds library, with nineteen episodes so far. One hundred eleven episodes of this syndicated show were produced between 1956 and 1959, debuting in the US in January 1957. Chuck and P.T. own a helicopter company that is hired to perform all types of jobs. Janet Culver was the original secretary being replaced by Helen Carter in the second season. These 19 episodes are all that I have found so far, but I will be on the lookout for more. The new library is located in the Action/Adventure Catalog.

      7/22/14 - Tonight I created a new Adventures in Paradise library, with twenty-one episodes from the 1st through the 3rd Seasons of the show. Adventures in Paradise was an American television series created by James Michener which ran on ABC from 1959 until 1962, starring Gardner McKay as Adam Troy, the captain of the schooner Tiki III, which sailed the South Pacific looking for passengers and adventure. USA Network aired reruns of this series between 1984 and 1988. The new library is located in the Action/Adventure Catalog. I have boolmarked about 40 more of these so more to come!

      7/20/14 - Today I added the first twenty-four episodes of the 4th Season to the Have Gun Will Travel library. About 2 1/2 Seasons to go. Tonight I created a new Max Headroom library, including the original British TV Movie, a CocaCola Commercial featuring Max Headroom, and all fourteen episodes of the American verison of the Max Headroom TV Series. Max Headroom was a fictional British artificial intelligence (AI), known for his wit and stuttering, distorted, electronically sampled voice. He was introduced in early 1984. The character was created by George Stone, Annabel Jankel, and Rocky Morton in the mid-1980s, and portrayed by Matt Frewer as "The World's first computer-generated TV host" although the computer-generated appearance was achieved with prosthetic make up, as the computer technology of the time was not sufficiently advanced to achieve the desired effect. The copyright protection on this series is a bit bleary (it was produced by a British Production comany to air in the US) so I am not sure how long this library will last - but since there are only sixteen videos, including the series, the movie and the commercial, I figured it was worth the risk of losing the library eventually since so little work was involved. The new library is available via the Funny Guys, the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror, and the Action/Adventure Catalogs. Watch 'em while we got 'em!!

      7/17/14 - Today I created a new Mork & Mindy library with the first twenty-three episodes to start. Some of you may remember that last year, when Jonathan Winters passed away, I created a Mork & Mindy Season 4 library - Winters had been one of the stars of that season. I said at the time that I intended to post the entire series, but then the YouTube channel I was getting the episodes from was terminated before I could do any more. Later on I found another channel with the first three seasons, but decided to just bookmark it and wait to see what happened. That was over a year ago, and the channel is still there, so I decided to go ahead and start posting them again. I also found the 4th season episodes, but they have only been around since the beginning of this year, so I plan to take it slow in building this library. Don't want another Gunsmoke fiasco on my hands :-). The new library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog, and also the Family Comedy & Drama Catalog. Also added ten episodes to the Burns & Allen Show library, which completes the library until I find the episodes that are missing from several seasons.

      7/16/14 - Today I discovered two things about the Danger Man series. 1) Two years after the end of the first season, the 2nd Season of the series was revised and retitled and became the very well known spy drama series called Secret Agent for release in the United States. And 2) that the Season 4 of the series only consisted of two episodes, which I added to the library today to complete the series. This series has some personal significance for me because in 1966 I was the rhythm guitarist in a band called "Thee Prophets" and we were the house band at the Whisky a Go Go in Hollywood, CA, when Johnny Rivers first performed there. Rivers had become famous for providing the vocals on the original recording of a song called "Secret Agent Man", which was used beginning in 1964 as the the theme music for the Secret Agent series. When Johnny came in to the Whiskey, he didn't have a band of his own and it was several weeks before his record company finally provided him with one, so we backed him up during his initial appearances at the club. One of the songs we learned in order to accompany him was "Secret Agent Man", and it was a live recording from the Whiskey, featuring Thee Prophets, with yours truly as the rhythm guitarist, that became the most famous version of the song which aired on the radio and peaked at #3 on the Billboard charts. Lou Adler, who was River's producer, took our original live track into the studio and added some final touches, including more instrumentation, to the recording before it's release. We were not credited for our performance, nor did we receive any compensation other than the fees we received from the Whiskey - but our participation in that recording was well known on the LA music scene, and that notoriety resulted in our continued success. Eventually, in 1967, we were lured away from the Whiskey with the promise of a fatter paycheck by Gazzari's, which was just up the street on Sunset Blvd. We replaced The Doors, who had just released their first album and were on their way to bigger fame.

      7/15/14 - Today I found two episodes of the Steve Allen Show, and decided to look for more Steve Allen appearances. I found twenty-three episodes of What's My Line? featuring Allen (these were also added the the What's My Line? library), and fifteen Other Steve Allen TV Appearances, so I created libraries for the latter two categories then went ahead and created a Steve Allen Catalog to house the three Steve Allen related libraries. I was fascinated by Steve Allen as a teenager and rode my bike over the hill from the San Fernando Valley into Hollywood on a few occasions in order to attend his shows at the The Steve Allen Playhouse on Vine Street! Later on I drove there and attended many shows (not quite weekly, but several times each month). Unfortunately, so far, I have only found four actual episodes of the Steve Allen Show, none of which are from the period when I was attending the shows in person. The new catalog is available via the Funny Guys Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      7/14/14 - Today I added thirty-two episodes to the The Wild Wild West library, bringing us to the end of the second season. Many more to come!

      7/12/14 - Today I added Season and Episode information to The Beverly Hillbillies library, which currently consists of forty-nine episodes - most of the first two seasons. This is another of the shows that I posted soon after creating the site - back when I hadn't yet discovered the on line databases that hold the information I now routinely add to the player pages.

      7/10/14 - Today I created a new The Fugitive library, with twenty-one episodes to start. 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 stars 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 is another of my persona favorite programs and I want to thank Richard Kane for suggesting it in an email message. I will probably hold off on posting anymore of them immediately - to see if they last up on YouTube. The start of the first season of this show is past the 50 year Public Domain point, but the other four seasons are not. There are 120 episodes in the series, I have found about 100 so far, so (hopefully) many more to come. The new library is accessed via both the Television Drama, and the Action/Adventure Catalogs.

      7/9/14 - Today I added twenty-two episodes to the Burns & Allen Show library, which brings us to the end of the 7th Season (until I find some of the episodes that are missing thus far). The George Burns & Gracie Allen Show is another one of my personal favorites. In fact, finding these shows and also episodes of the Jack Benny Program is what gave me the original idea to create the Uncle Earl site in the first place. They are amazingly funny and still hold up well more than 60 years after the show debuted way back in 1950. I can't recommend this show highly enough to do it justice - if you have never watched it you have no idea what you are missing.

      7/8/14 - Since it appears to be a very popular show on the Uncle Earl site, I decided to add thirty-nine episodes to the Mike Hammer library. This completes the series, which only ran for two seasons - a total of 79 episodes.

      7/6/14 - Today I added five episodes (for a total of thirty) to the Happy Days library from YouTube. These are the last episodes I have found so far. I will keep looking.

      7/4/14 - Today I created a new Happy Days library with twenty-five episodes from Hulu (sorry abut the commercials). Happy Days is an American television sitcom that aired first-run from January 15, 1974, to September 24, 1984, on ABC. The series presents an idealized vision of life in the mid-1950s to mid-1960s United States. The series revolves around teenager Richie Cunningham and his family: his father, Howard, who owns a hardware store; traditional homemaker and mother, Marion; younger sister Joanie; and high school dropout, biker and suave ladies' man Arthur "Fonzie"/"The Fonz" Fonzarelli, who would eventually become the Cunninghams' upstairs tenant. The new library is located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

      7/3/14 - Today I created a new The Monkees library, with twenty-seven of the fifty-eight available episodes so far. More to come! The library is located in the Musical Shows Catalog, the Funny Guys Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. The Monkees were an American pop/rock band that released music in their original incarnation between 1966 and 1970, with subsequent reunion albums and tours in the decades that followed. Formed in Los Angeles in 1965 for the American television series The Monkees, which aired from 1966–1968, the musical acting quartet was composed of Americans Micky Dolenz (formerly known as Circus Boy), Michael Nesmith, and Peter Tork, and Englishman Davy Jones. Also added The Hayfield and End of the Line to the Stage 7 library located in the Television Drama Catalog.

      7/2/14 - Today I added six episodes to the Cisco Kid library, then arranged it into the proper order and added Season, Episode and Plot Summary information to the 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. Tonight I added Season, Episode and Plot Summary information to the Roy Rogers Show library, and the Bonanza library, and arranged tem into their proper order as well.

      7/1/14 - Today I added eighteen episodes to the Space Patrol library, which completes the library until I find more episodes out there somewhere. If you are old enough to remember this program, which was the first TV show I remember seeing way back in the earky 1950's, then, like myself, you are older than dirt :-). Also added The Long Count to the Stage 7 library and Second Dawn to the Four Star Playhouse library. Both of these libraries are located in the Television Drama Catalog.

      6/30/4 - Today I added thirty-four episodes to the Have Gun Will Travel library, which completes the first three seasons. Many more to come!

      6/28/14 - This morning I added twenty-five episodes to the Wanted: Dead or Alive library, which takes us to the end of the 2nd Season. One more season to come! Also, tonight I started building the All Pro Wrestling Catalog with sixteen full All Pro Wrestling Gym Wars Programs, thirteen All Pro Wrestling Classics Matches, the All Pro Wrestling 2010 Super Summer Series, and the All Pro Wrestling 2010 Young Lions Tournament to the Solie's Wrestling Videos Catalog. There will be many more Classics Matches and Gym Wars programs to come. All Pro Wrestling is an independent professional wrestling promotion and training school, based in Hayward, California, USA. The company was founded by Roland Alexander and managed by him until his passing in November 2013. In 1999, All Pro Wrestling (APW) was featured as part of the documentary film, Beyond the Mat. Roland Alexander, along with wrestlers Tony Jones and Michael Modest appeared, as they were having a tryout match with the World Wrestling Federation. The spot in the film was said to have tremendously boosted the school's "Boot Camp" sign ups. My personal connection to APW was to it's original owner. Mr. Alexander was a great promoter and absolutely dedicated to his boys in the locker room. I lived in Hayward, CA when he first established the promotion and was the proprietor of an upstart wrestling web site called Solie's Vintage Wrestling. I used to attend some of the cards and had a regular reporter, known as "germz", who wrote up the play-by-play for every single wrestling events from 1999 through 2001. My greatest memory of those years was seeing (and meeting) Bryan Danielson (Daniel Bryan) for the first time in 2001. He was called "The American Dragon" in those days and his performances were almost magical. I interviewed him a couple of times amd I am so proud to have known him back in those days. Christopher Daniels and Brian Kendrick were also APW graduates.

      6/27/14 - Today I added sixteen episodes to the Mike Hammer library which completes the 1st Season of the series. A Facebook correspondent reminded me about this library, which I created back in November and then forgot about! My apologies...I will be completing the library in the next few weeks, since there are only 2 seasons in the entire series (about 80 episodes).

      6/26/14 - Today I continued adding video to the Gulf Coast/Continental Championship Wrestling catalog, specifically, seven promos to the Promos Library and four angle videos to the Angles & Feuds Library.

      6/25/14 - Tonight I added eleven matches to the Gulf Coast/Continental Championship Wrestling Singles Matches Library, and six matches to the Gulf Coast/Continental Championship Wrestling Tag Team Matches Library, both located in the Gulf Coast/Continental Championship Wrestling catalog, which resides on the Solie's Wrestling Videos Site.

      6/24/14 - Tonight I added twenty-four episodes to the Mister Ed library. This brings us to the 18th episode of the Second Season. Many more to come!

      6/23/14 - Tonight I added twenty-four episodes to the The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin library. This brings us to the 21st episode of the Second Season. Many more to come!

      6/22/14 - Today I created a new Other Liberace TV Appearances library with thirteen shows as diverse as: The Jack Benny Program, What's My Line?, You Bet Your Life, Hollywood Palace and the Tonight Show with Johnn Carson. I then created a new Liberace Catalog, to house the new library, along with The Liberace Show library. The new catalog is located in the Musical Shows Catalog and also in the Catalog of Stars.

      6/21/14 - This evening, at the suggestion of an email correspondent, I created a new Honey West library, with all thirty episodes of the short lived series. Honey West is a fictional character created by Gloria and Forest Fickling under the pseudonym "G.G. Fickling. The character is notable as being one of the first female private detectives in popular fiction. The character was also the basis for a 30 episodes ABC TV series in the 1965-66 television season starring Anne Francis and John Ericson. The series executive producer was Aaron Spelling. The new library can be found in the Action/Adventure Catalog and also in the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog.

      6/20/14 - Today, in a conscious effort to get away from the oh, so-serious western drama shows I have been posting lately, I created a new The Wild Wild West library, with the first twenty-three episodes of Season 1 to start. The Wild Wild West was a television series that ran on CBS from September 17, 1965 to April 4, 1969. The series told the story of two Secret Service agents: the fearless and handsome James T. West (played by Robert Conrad), and Artemus Gordon (played by Ross Martin), a brilliant gadgeteer and master of disguise. Their mission was to protect President Grant and the United States from all manner of dangerous threats. My source is a YouTube channel that appears to have all four seasons of the series available, so many more to come. The new library is located in the Action/Adventure Catalog the Western Shows Catalog, and, because of the the "tongue-in-cheek" nature of the series, also in the Funny Guys Catalog.

      By the way, for those who might be wondering how I have the time to put up so many shows over the last few months, the answer is simple. I have been unemployed since the first of the year, except for my various musical ventures, which don't constitute anything like a full-time job. So updating the Uncle Earl site has become my daily work routine until I manage to land another day-job. I want to stress that I am NOT using this fact as a plea for donations, not that I don't accept the largess of my viewers, of course. But in fact, a correspondent asked me that question in an email last night, so I thought I would put the answer out there for those who might be curious.

      6/19/14 - Tonight I added twenty episodes to the Wanted: Dead or Alive library, which completes the first season and takes us up the 7th episode of Season 2. I have the entire series bookmarked, 3 seasons in all (94 episodes), so many more to come. The star of this show, Steve McQueen, of course, went on to major movie stardom in very short order. Which is why the very popular series only lasted three seasons. His presence jumps right off the screen, which even I could see as an ten year old boy when the series began airing in 1958. I can't recommend it enough. Check it out!

      6/18/14 - This evening I discovered two episodes of what I thought were The Adventures of Ellery Queen Tv Series, which turned out to be two Ellery Queen feature films. I then did a search and found seven more of them, starring various actors as the Writer/Detective character. So I created an Ellery Queen Film Library, then also created an Ellery Queen Catalog to hold the two libraries. Ellery Queen is both a fictional character and a pseudonym used by two American cousins from Brooklyn, New York — Daniel Nathan, alias Frederic Dannay (October 20, 1905 – September 3, 1982) and Manford (Emanuel) Lepofsky, alias Manfred Bennington Lee (January 11, 1905 – April 3, 1971) — to write, edit, and anthologize detective fiction. 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. On film, first Donald Cook then Eddie Quillan played Queen, then Ralph Bellamy and William Gargan took turns playing the character in several films, opposite Charley Grapewin as Inspector Queen. The Tv series starred Richard Hart as Ellery Queen in the first season and Lee Bowman in the role in later seasons. new catalog can be found in the Action/Adventure Catalog, the Mystery & Crime Drama Catalog, the Feature Films Catalog and in the Catalog of Stars.

      6/17/14 - While working on the Jack Benny Catalog yesterday I found that one of the episodes of The Lucy Show featured Benny, and I noticed that that library, being one of the first I built back in 2010, was out of order, so I re-arranged it and added Season, Episode, and Plot Summary information. Today I added nine more episodes to the library, including one more with Jack Benny (not playing himself, by the way). Then I decided to finish building the I Love Lucy library by adding the twenty-three remaining episodes from Hulu. As I have mentioned previously, the Hulu collection is not complete (102 out of 181 episodes of the complete series), but it does contain episodes from every season including the very last episode (but not the first). Sorry about the commercials.

      6/16/14 - Today I found two more episodes of the Jack Benny Program and also one more episode of the Jack Benny Hour. Since I also already had one Jack Benny Feature Film (of which he only made about a half dozen), and fifteen Other Jack Benny TV Appearances already on the site, I decided it was time to create a Jack Benny Catalog. The new catalog is located in the Funny Guys Catalog, the Feature Films Catalog and in the Catalog of Stars.

      6/14/14 - Added four episodes to the Stage 7 library, which means we now have seven of the twenty-five episodes of this short-lived series. Stage 7 was a TV drama anthology series that aired in 1955. This program premiered in December 1954 with the title Your Favorite Playhouse with all episodes being repeats from other series. The program's 25 episodes showcased the talents of actors and actresses such as Charles Bronson, Edmond O'Brien, Gene Barry, Phyllis Coates, Frances Rafferty, Macdonald Carey, and Phyllis Thaxter. Some directing was done by Quinn Martin. Also added eleven episodes to the Mysteries and Scandals library, and then found and bookmarked forty more episodes. Many more to come!

      6/13/14 - Added twenty episodes to the first season of the Lassie (1954-56) library, which completes the Season 1 library, unless I find some of the episodes that are missing at this point. I will start filling out Season 2 next. The bulk of Season 3 is already in place. Stay tuned. Also added six matches to the Memphis Wrestling Singles Matches library, two matches plus a Studio Brawl to the Memphis Wrestling Tag Team Matches/Battle Royals/Brawls library, and seven promos to the Memphis Wrestling Promos library, located in the Solie's Wrestling Videos Catalog.

      6/12/14 - In the spirit of "one thing leads too another", today I stumbled across an episode of The Adventures Long John Silver TV Series that I didn't already have in my library. I looked around a little more and found ten additional episodes, which more than quadrupled the size of the library (from 3 episodes to 14). In course of finding those episodes I came across the sequel to the Disney version of Treasure Island, called Long John Silver (1954), starring Robert Newton, who was in the Disney film and also starred in the TV series. I then found three more Long John Silver movies, including one animated feature, so I created a Long John Silver Film library. Finally I came across the entire Return to Treasure Island (1986), TV series with ten episodes in all, and a couple of Live Theatrical Productions, So the next step was to create a Long John Silver Catalog to house all of these finds. The new catalog can be found in the Action/Adventure Catalog, the Historical Drama Catalog, the Feature Films Catalog and in the Catalog of Stars.

      6/11/14 - Today I added twenty-nine episodes to the Have Gun Will Travel library, which completes Seasons 1 and 2. There are a few Season 3 episodes already in place, so I will start expanding there next. Many more to come. Also added six matches to the International Championship Wrestling Singles Matches library and five matches to the International Championship Wrestling Tag Team Matches library, located in the Solie's Wrestling Videos Catalog.

      6/10/14 - Today, while adding two television episodes to the Topper Library, and also arranging the library into it's proper order, I decided to look around and found the original Topper (1937) feature film, which I also added to the library. This library has always been small (currently seven TV episodes and two feature films) and so I have always combined the TV and Film libraries on one page. I then noticed that the Topper film starred Cary Grant, so I started looking around for Cary Grant Films and found nine of them, including the Topper film (he plays George Kirby in that one). The Topper film was also added to the Comedy Film library (where the 2nd Topper film Topper Returns (1941) already resides). Another Cary Grant film, Notorious (1946), was also added to the Alfred Hitchcock Film Library. The new Cary Grant Film Library is accessed via the Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      6/8/14 - Today I found a couple of episodes of the Hopalong Cassidy TV Series, which got me searching for other William Boyd vehicles. I then found seven Hopalong Cassidy Films, and five Other William Boyd Films. I then built a William Boyd Catalog to keep them all in. The new Catalog is available via the Western Shows Catalog, the Action/Adventure Catalog, the Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. I also found the missing episode (Ep 35) of The Honeymooners, to complete that library and added A Spray of Bullets (1955) to the Four Star Playhouse library. Finally, created a new James Stewart Film Library with eleven films to start. The library is found in the Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      6/8/14 - Today I added eighteen episodes to Season 5 of Burns & Allen Show library, which is all I have of that season until I find some more of them. Seasons 7 and 8 still to come! Also added the entire 3rd Season to the Danger Man library, a total of twenty-three episodes. Also rearranged the first two Seasons into their proper order. NOTE: Many of the episode numbers shown in the player windows are incorrect. Season 4 to come!

      6/5/14 - Today I created a new Wanted: Dead or Alive library with twenty-three episodes to start. Wanted: Dead or Alive was an American Western television series starring Steve McQueen as the bounty hunter Josh Randall. It aired on CBS for three seasons from 1958–61. The black-and-white program was a spin-off of a March 1958 episode of Trackdown, a 1957–59 western series starring Robert Culp. The series launched McQueen into becoming the first television star to cross over into comparable status on the big screen These uploads are all about two years old and have tens of thousands of views already, so I am confident they will last a while. The entire series is available so many more to come. The new library can ve accessed via both the Action/Adventure Catalog and the Western Shows Catalog.

      6/4/14 - Today I remembered that I already have a The Adventures of Rex & Rinty Theatrical Serial and then created a new Rin Tin Tin Catalog to house the both libraries. Rin Tin Tin (September 1918 – August 10, 1932) was a male German Shepherd Dog rescued from a World War I battlefield by an American soldier, Lee Duncan, who nicknamed him "Rinty". Duncan trained 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. In 1929, Rin Tin Tin may have received the most votes for the first Academy Award for Best Actor, but the Academy determined that a human should win. After Rin Tin Tin died in 1932, the name was given to several related German Shepherd Dogs featured in fictional stories on film, radio, and television. Rin Tin Tin, Jr. appeared in some serialized films. Rin Tin Tin III appeared in a film with child actor Robert Blake in 1947. 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. The new film library includes all three generations of the original Rin Tin Tin's progeny. The new catalog replaces the Rin Tin Tin libraries located in the Action/Adventure Catalog and the Western Shows Catalog, and also appears in the Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      6/3/14 - Today I created a new The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin library with twenty-six episodes to start. The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin, an ABC television series, ran from October 1954 to May 1959. Rusty was orphaned in an Indian raid. He and his dog Rin Tin Tin were adopted by the troops at Fort Apache in Arizona, and helped establish law and order in and around Mesa Grande. This YouTube channel appears to have almost the entire series so many more to come. The new library is available via both the Action/Adventure Catalog and the Western Shows Catalog. Also added fifteen matches to the Golden Age of Wrestling Single Matches library, and created a George Carlin library of eight comedy performances while watching an old HBO Special on NetFlix. I was surprised at how hard his long form live shows were to come across. I found a lot of them out there but most of them required paying a fee, and of course were not embeddable. This new library is located in the Funny Guys Catalog.

      6/2/14 - This morning , in what some may feel was a fit of self-indulgence, I added a new MCTV Video on Demand Catalog to the Main Library Page. This link takes you to a new browser tab where you can view the various libraries I created for Mendocino Coast Television, the Public Access Television station where I used to work. To return to the Uncle Earl site, simply close the new tab. I felt that it was appropriate to include this collection here because it was the genesis of the Uncle Earl site. I learned how to embed streaming video files in order to create the station library, and one of the direct results was that I concieved of the idea of creating a free video streaming site for old TV shows and movies, which eventually became Uncle Earl's Classic TV Channel. Also created a new Mysteries and Scandals library with sixteen episodes from the 1st Season to start, at the suggestion of Stan Zeitlin on Facebook. More to come! The new library is located in the News/Documentary (Reality) Programs Catalog.

      5/31/14 - Today I created a Superman Catalog, including six episodes of the Superman TV Series and also the Superman Cartoon library. The TV show episodes were posted about 6 months ago on the Internet Archive, and I am flabbergasted that they are still there - I expect that they will disappear eventually, so you may want to watch them right away. The new Catalog is available via the Action/Adventure Catalog. I also decided to try continuing to rebuild the Have Gun Will Travel library by adding eighteen episodes to the 2nd Season. I am going to take it slow, but I am fairly confident they won't disappear on us. Each one has three embedded commercial breaks (which you can skip after the first 5 seconds) and the channel DOES say it is "Official", so we'll see...

      5/30/14 - Today I added twenty-seven episodes to the I Love Lucy library, which, because there are a lot of missing episodes in the collection on Hulu, gets us to to 21st episode of the 5th season. Also added The Good Sister (1955) and The Island (1952) to the Four Star Playhouse library. and created a Superman Catalog, including six episodes of the Superman TV Series and also the Superman Cartoon library. The TV show episodes were posted about 6 months ago on the Internet Archive, and I am flabbergasted that they are still there - I expect that they will disappear eventually, so you may want to watch them right away. The new Catalog is available via the Action/Adventure library.

      5/28/14 - Today I posted the first twenty-one of the thirty-nine episodes of Lassie (1958-59). These episodes are available on Hulu and include the entire 5th Season of the series. In the 4th Season we were introduced to Timmy Martin, an orphan runaway, so this is the second season that stars Jon Provost as Timmy, and June Lockhart as his adoptive mother, Ruth. I also created a new Lassie Catalog to house the first two versions of the series. The new catalog replaces the Lassie (1954-56) library located in the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

      5/27/14 - A few weeks ago I found 39 episodes of "Lassie" on Hulu. Today I was about to start posting some of them when, on a whim, I decided to check on YouTube and found an "Official" Lassie channel (stamped official by YouTube, so there is hope that the episodes won't disappear!). Between 1954–1973, Lassie, the television series, was broadcast, with Lassie initially residing on a farm with a young male master (Tommy Rettig). 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 (with Jon Provost). The version on Hulu is the Jon Provost (Timmy) iteration. The YouTube channel features the original series, starring Tommy Rettig as Jeff Miller. I have chosen to begin posting the original series first and have created a new Lassie (1954-56) library with twenty-nine episodes to start. Later this week I will begin posting the episodes from Hulu (the Jon Provost version). At that point I will create a Lassie Catalog to house both libraries. Lots more to come - stay tuned... The new library is available via the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog.

      5/26/14 - Today I added eight episodes to the Red Skelton Show library and also added Season, Episode and Plot Summary information to the library, then arranged it into it's proper order. Like the Jack Benny Program I worked on the other day, this is one of the first libraries I created back in 2010. Getting the program information on this one was a little trickier because the data is considerably harder to come by for some reason. I have another sixteen episodes from the final season of the show bookmarked, but am going to hold off posting them because the uploads for them on YouTube are only a month old. I put one of them up (the Phyliss Diller episode) and will keep an eye on it for a while. The last season of the show (Season 20) was in 1971-72 - so there is a good chance that they are not yet under Public Domain. Also added The Executioner (1955) to the Four Star Playhouse library and added two episodes to the My Little Margie library.

      5/23/14 - I spent most of today adding twenty-seven episodes and then re-ordering and adding Season, Episode and Plot Summary information to the Jack Benny Program library. This is another of the first libraries I built shortly after creating the site. The last time I did anythig in this library was in May of 2012. 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. It is one of my all time favorites and I highly recommend it for your viewing pleasure.

      5/22/14 - Added The Willow Cabin (1950) and Wintertime (1951) to the Studio One library, and while i was in there I added Season, Episode, Air date, and Plot Summary information to all of the player pages. Also arranged the library into the proper order. Studio One was one of the most significant U.S. anthology drama series during the 1950s. The format was organised around the weekly presentation of a one hour, live, television play. Each play different: such risk and diversity is hard to come by today. Also added Press Conference (1955) and The Time of the Day (1955) to the Stage 7 library (another, lesser known TV drama series), and Finale (1953) and To Die at Midnight (1956) to the Four Star Playhouse library, a drama series featuring four rotating stars, Charles Boyer, David Niven, Ida Lupino and Dick Powell in individual episodes consisting of everything from comedy to drama. All are available via the Television Drama Catalog

      5/21/14 - Created a new The Rebel library, with five episodes so far, which is all I have found to this point. The series portrays the adventures of young Confederate Army veteran Johnny Yuma, an aspiring writer, played by Nick Adams. Haunted by his memories of the American Civil War, Yuma, in search of inner peace, roams the American West, specifically the Texas Hill Country and the South Texas Plains. He keeps a journal of his adventures and fights injustice where he finds it with a revolver and a sawed-off double-barreled shotgun. I hope to find more of these, as it's one of my favorite Western series. The new library is available via the Western Shows library. Also created a new The Larkins library, with seven episodes to start, which is the entire first season. The Larkins was a British television sitcom which was produced by Associated Television and aired on ITV beginning in 1958. The series focused on Ada Larkins (Peggy Mount), her hen-pecked husband Alf (David Kossoff), their son Eddie (Shaun O'Riordan), daughter Joyce (Ruth Trouncer) and her ex-GI husband Jeff (Ronan O'Casey). They all live together at 66 Sycamore Street, next door to inquisitive neighbour Hetty Prout (Barbara Mitchell) and her husband, who have a daughter together. The new library is available via the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. Finally, created a new The Rogues library with all thirty of the series episodes. The Rogues was an American television series that appeared on NBC from September 13, 1964, to April 18, 1965, starring David Niven, Charles Boyer, and Gig Young as a related trio of former conmen who could, for the right price, be persuaded to trick a very wealthy and heinously unscrupulous mark. Although it won the 1964 Golden Globe award for Best Television Series, the show was cancelled after one season consisting of thirty episodes. This new library is available via the Action/Adventure library

      5/20/14 - Added nine episodes to the Burns & Allen Show library, bringing us to the end of the 4th Season. Many more to come!

      5/19/14 - Today I added fifty-five more episodes to the Space Patrol library. At the moment that is all I have that are clearly identified. I have a few more episodes bookmarked, but their titles are in dispute - either the person who posted them to YouTube wasn't aware of their titles and thus didn't name them, or else they gave them titles which I have not been able to find in any of the various on-line resources I consult for this kind of information. Stay tuned. Also added The Time of the Day (1955) to the Stage 7 Library.

      5/18/14 - This takes me way back. Tonight I added twelve episodes to the Space Patrol library, effectively quadrupling the number of episodes available on the site. Space Patrol was a science fiction adventure series that was originally aimed at juvenile audiences beginning in 1950 via television, radio, and comic books. However, it soon developed a sizable adult audience such that by 1954, the program consistently ranked in the top 10 shows broadcast on a Saturday. This was the first TV show I remember watching when I was not more than about 3 or 4 years old. I found a fairly good sized cache of these on YouTube. I have about 30 more of them bookmarked with examples of all five season of the series. Stay tuned!

      5/16/14 - Not sure how wise it was to do this, but today I added the seven remaining episodes to the The Alfred Hitchcock Presents (1985) library from a list of about 20 bookmarks I already had collected. The remainder of them had been removed from YouTube sometime since I collected them - but that was quite a while back - maybe even a year or so. The new episodes include:

      Prism
      Killer Takes All
      The Hunted
      Murder Party
      My Dear Watson
      Romance Machine
      and Skeleton in the Closet

      Watch 'em while we still got 'em!

      5/15/14 - Today I added the final three episodes from Hulu to the The Alfred Hitchcock Presents library. I would have done them sooner but I didn't realize there were only three left to post. While I was in the Alfred Hitchcock Catalog I decided to add twenty-one episodes to the The Alfred Hitchcock Hour library including:

      Starring the Defense
      A Matter of Murder
      The Ordeal of Mrs. Snow
      Ten Minutes From Now
      Triumph
      The Second Verdict
      Lonely Place
      Memo from Purgatory
      The Monkey's Paw - A Retelling
      Off Season
      Day of Reckoning
      Ride the Nightmare
      Bonfire
      Hangover
      To Catch a Butterfly
      Diagnosis: Danger
      The Star Juror
      Dear Uncle George
      Who Needs an Enemy
      The Gentleman Caller
      and The Long Silence - more to come.

      I also went through the The Alfred Hitchcock Presents (1985) library to add Season and Episode information. In the process I discovered that about half of the episodes have been taken down from YouTube for content violations. The ones that are left are now all identified correctly and arranged in chronilogical order. Given what happened to the other episodes, I suspect that this library may be doomed in the near future.

      5/13/14 - Disaster time! I just watched my Gunsmoke library disappear for the third time. I mean I literally watched it happen. I was within one library page of restoring it and decided to go out and finish it tonight. I pulled up the Gunsmoke YouTube channel and saw right away that all but the first three seasons were gone. Then, as I watched, the third season, then the second, then the first disappeared before my eyes. The owner of the channel was deleting the videos in order to not lose his channel, apparently. That's it for me. It will be a long time before I ever try to rebuild it. Too much work only to see it vanish...Rest in Peace, Matt. By the way, now would be a good time to start watching the Have Gun Will Travel episodes - there are 37 of them - and I suspect they will vanish soon as well. For my part, I am watching them all in batches before I even consider putting anymore up on the site.

      5/12/14 - Added nine episodes to the Burns & Allen Show library taking us to the 21st episode of Season 4. Also created a new William Tell library with seven episodes so far. I hope to find more soon. Also, unfortunately, my Phil Silvers library disappeared a few weeks ago. I thought I had made an announcement about it on the Update page and on Facebook - but apparently not. They were YouTube videos and all from the same channel, which was suspended for content violations sometime in April. When that happens the video player pages stop working on my site, and I remove the listing to avoid confusion.

      5/11/14 - I couldn't resist posting fifteen more episodes to the Have Gun Will Travel library. This is my all time favorite Western show (#2 is The Rifleman - but mostly because Chuck Connors used to live near my neighborhood in the San Franando Valley when I was in High School, and would come to the door in person if you knocked on Halloween!). This brings us to the 26th episode of Season 1 - plus I have one Season 2 episode and several from Season 3. I have hopes of being able to post the entire series, so stay tuned. Also restored the next fifty episodes to the Gunsmoke library, bringing us to the end of the 7th Season.

      5/10/14 - Restored all but two of the original Have Gun Will Travel library episodes, which were posted back in July 2012, only to then disappear shortly thereafter. This may sound like quite an accomplishmemt until you take into account that there were only sixteen episodes in the original library :-) However, the new sources - actually two different channels on YouTube (both of which appear to be officially sanctioned as they all have commercials embedded in them) taken together, appear to contain almost all of the series episodes. In the meantime I have added eight episodes to start filling out the first season. Look for this library to expand exponentially in the weeks and months to come.

      5/8/14 - Restored the next thirty episodes to the Gunsmoke library, bringing us to the end of the 8th library page and to Season 6, Episode 16 of the series. More to come.

      5/6/14 - Added forty-six episodes to the Burns & Allen Show library, which triples the size of the library, and sub-divided the library up into the separate seasons. A few of the new episodes went into the first and second seasons, and the rest into the third. Many more to come! Also added an episode of the George Burns Show, which was the program that replaced Burns & Allen when Gracie retired. Since the later series was very short-lived, and I have only found one of them, I have decided to just add it at the end of the original series. Also added one episode (A Friend in Need - S9, Ep8) to the Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet library.

      5/5/14 - Tonight I went through the Burns & Allen Show library and put it into proper season and episode order and added the episode information to all of the player pages. Like many of my earliest libraries I had posted them as I found them, back before I was aware of the resources available on line to find this information. When The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show began on CBS Television October 12, 1950, it was an immediate success. The show was originally staged live before a studio audience. Ever the businessman, Burns realized it would be more efficient to do the series on film the half-hour episodes could then be syndicated. From that point on, the show was shot without a live audience present, however, each installment would be screened before an audience to provide live responses prior to the episodes broadcast. By the way, I found about 150 episodes of Burns & Allen on YouTube this evening so look for this library to expand greatly in the weeks to come.

      5/4/14 - Restored the next thirty episodes to the Gunsmoke library, which brings us to the end of the 7th library page and the 20th episode of Season 5.

      5/3/14 - Today I restored the next twenty-four episodes of the Gunsmoke library. This bring us too the end of the 6th library page and the 28th episode of the 4th Season. Also added twelve episodes to the Celebrity Roasts library, which used to be called the "Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts" library, but because I lost most of the Dean Martin Roasts shortly after building the library, I replaced them with the Comedy Central version of the program plus some independently produced roasts that followed the same Friar's Club format.

      4/30/14 - Tonight I added forty episodes to the Combat! Library, which brings us to the end of the 5th Season and also completes the library.

      4/29/14 - Tonight I restored Season 3 of the Gunsmoke library. This one went particularly quickly because the original library only had twenty-three of the thirty-nine episodes that make up the season. As I menioned before, my intention is to restore all of the 8 season episodes from the original library before going back and filling in the missing shows. Stay tuned...

      4/28/14 - Today I added a new library to the Musical Programs Catalog. The Grateful Dead LIVE! Library with thirty-one concerts and an Early Years Compilation so far, is a collection of concert videos from around the World, featuring Jerry Garcia and his merry band playing all their hits as only they could. Grateful Dead was an American rock band formed in 1965 in Palo Alto, California. The band was known for its unique and eclectic style, which fused elements of rock, folk, bluegrass, blues, reggae, country, improvisational jazz, psychedelia, and space rock, and for live performances of long musical improvisation. They were ranked 57th in the issue The Greatest Artists of all Time by Rolling Stone magazine. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994. Although I was never a certified "Deadhead", I do enjoy their music and had the privelege to see them perform on many occasions when I lived in Berkeley in the early 1970's. I even played pool with Jerry on several occasions at the Keystone Berkeley near the University campus, where he appeared frequently and used to dominate the pool table between sets, taking on all comers and defeating them handily (myself included) everytime I saw him play. There are well over 100 of these videos beginning in the 1970's and going right up to 1994, the year before Jerry's untimely passing, so look for this library to expand exponentially.

      4/27/14 - This morning I restored the second season of the Gunsmoke library in a about 35 minutes. The work goes very quickly because, as I have mentioned previously, the pages are already built - so it is just a matter of swapping out the embed identifier code for each player page, which takes about 40 seconds for each one. For now I am ONLY restoring the episodes that I already had in the previous version of the library. When I finish the eighth season (the last one I had), assuming the YouTube channel hasn't disappeared again, I will go back and put in the episodes that were missing from the original library. So far, I have only run across one episode that was in the original library, but is missing from this new YouTube channel - the last episode of the second season. I was able to restore it by searching for it and finding it on another YouTube channel. No telling how long it will last - but then, that's true about the entire series, as I have learned to my chagrin twice thus far :-).

      4/25/14 - I haven't posted many movies lately so I decided to expand the Action Adventure Films library by adding nine classic films: The Moth (1934), The Call of the Wild (1935), Pilot X (1936), The Son of Monte Cristo (1940), Drums of the Desert (1940), Sign of the Wolf (1941), Captain Kidd (1945), Outpost in Morocco (1949) and Long John Silver (1954).

      4/24/14 - Well, here we go again... Created a new Gunsmoke library with thirty-seven episodes to start. Of course we have gone through this before - twice! But I have hopes that perhaps I have finally found a true "Official" Gunsmoke Channel this time. First of all, it appear that almost ALL of the known episodes are present - all twenty seasons. But more importantly, these episodes have COMMERCIALS EMBEDDED IN THEM - something I have not seen before on a Gunsmoke channel. It seems logical too me that in order to have advertising on a channel, the owner would need to have some kind of sanctioning from the content creator. With that in mind, I have decided to go ahead and post the first season, then wait a while and see what happens. Since I had pages already built for most of the first 8 seasons, it only took me just over an hour to restore these first season episodes. Hopefully - many more to come.

      4/23/14 - While building the Garry Moore Show library yesterday, I started coming across episodes of the Carol Burnett Show. Ms. Burnett, of course, started her TV career on the Garry Moore Show and was a big part of it's success. So today I created a new Carol Burnett Catalog, including twenty-four episodes of the Carol Burnett Show, eighteen Other Carol Burnett TV Appearances and four Carol Burnett Feature Films. The new Catalog can be accessed via the Whacky Dames Catalog, the Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      4/22/14 - Created a new Gong Show library with sixteen episodes (all I have found so far). Ten are from the original series in the late 1970's and the remaining six from the series re-boot 1988, including a long-form compilation. I put this one in the Game Show Catalog, since it has a panel of judges and features contestants. I should mention that I was actually on the Gong Show back in 1980. In fact, you can see me and my music partner at the time (Pierre Ardans) in the background of one of the scenes in the Gong Show Movie. On the show we played one of my original songs accompanied by the Gong Show orchestra. We lost to a trumpet playing dwarf who got up and told short jokes! Unfortunately, our act didn't make the cut for the broadcast. The score we got (29) didn't affect the outcome of the show so we were eliminated along with about 5 other acts. Jaye P Morgan looked me right in the eye and winked as she gave us a "9", thus taking us out of competition. Also added eight episodes to the Garry Moore Show library found in both the Funny Guys and the Variety Shows Catalogs.

      4/21/14 - Game Show uploads seem to be the thing on the Internet Archive these days. I just found four more episodes of What's My Line? there. Then, just for the heck of it, I went over to YouTube and found a huge cache of them there! I have posted eleven episodes from YouTube to make a total of fifteen today. The YouTube What's My Line? collection has hundreds of episodes, so look for this library to expand greatly in the near future.

      4/19/14 - Or not. Well, we have lost the Gunsmoke library once again. Sigh... Interestingly, the videos were taken down by the YouTube user him or herself and not by YouTube. In fact, the channel is still there it just no longer has any videos. I have taken down the pointer in the Western Shows Catalog, but will leave the libary and player pages in place on the off chance that the videos will reappear at some point. Sorry for the inconvenience.

      4/17/14 - Added thirty episodes to the Gunsmoke library. This brings us (because of missing episodes I have yet to find) to the end of Season 8. Many more to come!

      4/14/14 - Took a break from tax forms to add thirty-eight episodes to the To Tell the Truth library. I have recently found a cache of these shows on YouTube, so many more to come! Also created a new The Johns Hopkins Science Review Library with eleven episodes of this 1950's science program. The new library is available via the News/Documentary (Reality) Programs Catalog.

      4/12/14 - Over the last few days I have been arranging the Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet library into its proper order and adding season, episode and plot summary information to the player pages. This has been a daunting task because the Ozzie & Harriet library is one of the largest libraries on the site, with over 150 episodes. It is also one of the oldest libraries. I started building it during the first month after creating the sitei in 2010, when I found about 100 episodes on the Internet Archive. In those days I was not yet aware of the resources availabe for gathering the data and tended to just throw shows up in a haphazard manner in the order I found them. It had been quite a while since I had found any episodes, but a few days ago I suddenly found 5 that I didn't have, and when I went to post them, realized I had some work to do :-)

      4/9/14 - I just found out that Arthur "Guitar Boogie" Smith passed away on April 3, also at the age of 93. Smith recorded what was arguably the first Rock n' Roll record - Guitar Boogie - in 1948. Born in Clinton, South Carolina, Arthur Smith was a textile mill worker who became a celebrated and respected country music instrumental composer, guitarist, fiddler, and banjo player who had a major hit with the instrumental "Guitar Boogie". The song earned him the moniker Arthur "Guitar Boogie" Smith (to differentiate him from Tennessee fiddler and 1930s Grand Ole Opry star Fiddlin' Arthur Smith) and was recorded by numerous others including Tommy Emmanuel. Renamed "Guitar Boogie Shuffle", it became a rock and roll hit by Frank Virtue and the Virtues. Virtue served in the Navy with Smith and counted him as a major influence. In 1955, Smith composed a banjo instrumental he called "Feudin' Banjos" and recorded the song with five-string banjo player Don Reno. Later the composition appeared in the popular 1972 film Deliverance as "Dueling Banjos" played by Eric Weissberg and Steve Mandel. Not given credit, Smith had to proceed with legal action that eventually gave him songwriting credit and back royalties. It was a landmark copyright infringement suit. Other musicians who have been influenced by Smith include Nashville studio ace Hank "Sugarfoot" Garland, Roy Clark, Glen Campbell and surf music pioneers the Ventures. The new Arthur Smith Library, which includes nine videos, can be accessed via the Musical Programs Catalog, and also in the Catalog of Stars.

      4/7/14 - With the passing of Mickey Rooney at the age of 93 yeaterday. it seemed appropriate to gather together some of his wonderful performances. So I created a Mickey Rooney Catalog, which includes a Feature Film Library with with twelve of his films, a Mickey McGuire Library including eleven of the silent shorts he made from 1928 until 1934, and also a Mickey McGuire compilation film from 1945, the Mickey Rooney TV Show Library, which contains sixteen episodes and was already present on the site, and a Other Mickey Rooney TV Appearances Library with a game show appearance, two episodes of the Milton Berle Show and three TV Movies. The Mickey Rooney Catalog is accessable via the Funny Guys Catalog, and also in the Catalog of Stars.

      4/3/14 - Created two new Game Show libraries for Take a Good Look and To Tell the Truth with two episodes in each, and added one episode to the Jackpot Bowling library. Also added an episode of Camouflage (1962) to the Misc. Game Shows library.

      4/1/14 - Further expanding the Sherlock Holmes Catalog, added The Copper Beeches (1912), a silent film, and The Return Of Sherlock Holmes (1987) to the Sherlock Holmes Film Library, Sherlock Holmes and the Napoleon of Crime (2010) to the Sherlock Holmes Other Shows Library, and Arthur Conan Doyle Interview (1930), the only known filmed interview with the creator of the Sherlock Holmes character, to the Sherlock Holmes Documentary library. Also added another episode to the Jackpot Bowling and created a new Bride and Groom library after finding a second episode of that 1950s game show.

      3/31/14 - Created two new Game Show libraries for Quiz Kids and Jackpot Bowling with two episodes in each one, and added two episodes to the What's My Line? library. Also added episodes of About Faces (1960), Take a Good Look (1959), Bride and Groom (1952) and It Pays to be Ignorant (1951) to the Misc. Game Shows library. All of these are available via the Game Show Catalog.

      3/30/14 - After watching the documentary, "The Many Faces of Sherlock Holmes", on Hulu this afternoon, I was inspired to create a Sherlock Holmes Documentary library with six videos, including the one I just mentioned. The new library is located in the Sherlock Holmes Catalog, accessed via either the Mystery, Detectives and Crime Drama Catalog, or the Catalog of Stars. While I was at it I went through the Sherlock Holmes Film Library and added plot description information to the player pages wherever it was needed.

      3/28/14 - Added one match each to the CWF Singles Matches library and the CWF Tag Team Matches library, and seven promos to the CWF Promos library. These libraries are available via the Championship Wrestling from Florida Catalog. Unfortunately, we also lost several promos from the Promos library.

      3/26/14 - Added twenty-nine episodes to the Gunsmoke library. This brings us to the end of Season 7. There are episodes missing here and there, but the bulk of the 20 Seasons' episodes are available, so many more to come! Also added Added two matches to the Portland Wrestling Tag Team Matches/Battle Royales & Brawls! library, four Promos to the Portland Wrestling Promos library and six full episodes to the Portland Wrestling Full Episodes library - all located in the Portland/Pacific Northwest Wrestling Catalog within the Solie's Wrestling Video library.

      3/25/14 - Created a new Dollar a Second Library with two episodes of the show. Dollar a Second was a short lived comedy game show hosted by Jan Murray which originally aired from September 20, 1953 to June 14, 1954 on the DuMont Television Network. One pair of contestants (or a solo player) were selected to perform a certain task, which could be anything. They earn one dollar for every second they were on the stage, and, unless they are paying the penalty, may quit out at any time. If at any time one or both players make a mistake, they have to pay a penalty. These two episodes are all I have found so far. The second of these episodes was hosted by Dagmar, so I have also added it to the Other Dagmar TV Appearances library.

      3/24/14 - Added Bing Crosby White Christmas Show (1958), All Star Revue w/Bob Hope (1952), The Comedy Hour w/Bob Hope (1950) and Salute To The Troops (2001) to the Bob Hope TV library. All but the last one were already on the site. Also added One Night (1920) to the Buster Keaton film library, and Paper Hangers Helper (1925) and Oranges and Lemons (1923) to the Laurel and Hardy library.

      3/23/14 - Added Bulldog Drummond's Peril (1938) to the Bulldog Drummond film library, The Gold Rush (1925) to the Charlie Chaplin film library (widely considered to be Chaplin's greatest film, and known to be the master's personal favorite film), and Who Said That? (1953), and Masquerade Party (1955), to the Misc. Game Shows library. Also figured out the proper dates for several of the Misc. Game Shows and put the show listings into chronological order. This evening I created a Dagmar Catalog, including the Dagmar's Canteen library and a Other Dagmar TV Appearances library. I did a search of my own site and found six previously posted programs that featured Dagmar as a guest star, including two episodes of Broadway Playhouse, a Frank Sinatra Show episode, the Buick Berle Show and a couple of Game Show episodes. The Dagmar Catalog is accessed via the Whacky Dames Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      3/20/14 - Spent most of the afternoon restoring the The Alfred Hitchcock Presents library, which has fallen on hard times of late. Fortunately, I discovered earlier this week that the first four seasons (except for 5 episodes from Season 1) are on Hulu! So I have added fifty episodes to the first and second season to bring us to the end of the second season (minus the 5 episodes of season one I mentioned before. About half of the episodes I posted today were in the library previously, so those pages were already built - I just had to change the embed codes. The new/restored episodes are:

      Never Again
      Gentleman from America
      The Baby Sitter
      The Belfry
      The Hidden Thing
      The Legacy

      Indestructible Mr. Weems
      A Little Sleep
      The Dangerous People

      3/19/14 - Added twenty-four episodes to the Dennis the Menace library, which bring us to the sixteenth episode of the second season. Many more to come!

      3/17/14 - Created a new Green Acres library with the first twenty-three episodes of the series to start. 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 re 170 episodes on Hulu (sorry about the commercials), so many more to come. The new library is available via the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog. Also arranged the Twilight Zone library episodes into their proper order and added season, episode and plot description information to all of the player pages. I have just discovered that the entire series (156 episodes) is available on Hulu, so I have added twenty-one episodes to bring us to the end of the first season. There were also four episodes from later seasons already in the library. Look for this library to expand exponentially.

      3/15/14 - Added eighteen epsiodes to the Father Knows Best library. This gives us the first twenty-three episodes of the first season, plus four later episodes that were already in the library. I also added plot descriptions, and season and episode information to all of the player pages, and put them all in their proper order. A few of these are from YouTube. There are 100 episodes available on Hulu, so many more to come. Sorry about the commercials.

      3/11/14 - Created a new Dagmar's Canteen library with four episodes so far of the short-lived variety series. Dagmar (born Virginia Ruth Egnor, November 29, 1921 – October 9, 2001) was an American actress, model and television personality of the 1950s. As a statuesque, busty blonde, she became the first major female star of television, receiving much press coverage during that decade. In 1952, she hosted the short-lived, prime time Dagmar's Canteen, in which she sang, danced, interviewed servicemen and performed comedy routines. The basic premise of the show was that servicemen from the audience were given roles to act alongside Dagmar in sketches. The new library is accessed via the Variety Shows Catalog.

      3/2/14 - Tonight, while watching the Oscars, I added twenty episodes to the The Alfred Hitchcock Presents library, considerably filling out the first season. This was easier than it sounds because the majority were episodes that had been on the site previously but had been taken down from YouTube and thus deleted from the library. Since I already had the pages built it was a simple matter of re-establishing each link then plugging in the new identifier code.

      Here is a list (with links) of the added episodes:
      Premonition
      Triggers in Leash
      Don't Come Back Alive
      Into Thin Air
      Our Cook's A Treasure
      The Long Shot
      The Case of Mr. Pelham
      Guilty Witness
      The Cheney Vase
      A Bullet for Baldwin
      The Big Switch
      You Got to Have Luck
      The Older Sister
      Safe Conduct
      The Derelicts
      Back for Christmas
      Place of Shadows
      The Perfect Murder
      Help Wanted
      Portrait of Jocelyn

      3/1/14 - Over the last the two days I have been rebuilding the The Alfred Hitchcock Presents library. The YouTube channel where I found most of the episodes was terminated last week. Fortunately, I was able to find all but two of the missing shows - it is a pretty simple matter to repair YouTube embed code - a single string of 11 characters (the identifier code) has to be replaced in two spots on each player page. When I get into the swing of it I can repair about 5 pages per minute.

      I am not overly worried about these shows disappearing again. I have found many full episodes uploaded all over YouTube - some of them have been there for years and have thousands of views.

      If given a choice between a single video, or a segmented program, containing more than one part, I will pick the segmented show and make a playlist. About a third of the AHP episodes in the library are playlists - they tend to stay up on YouTube longer if each individual video is NOT the entire episode.

      I also discovered several episodes that were not in the libarary already. I have bookmarked these uploads and will start adding them in a few weeks. I want to sit on them a while to make sure they aren't going to vanish on me :-)

      2/25/14 - Added fifty-five episodes to the Gunsmoke library. This gets us too the 16th episode of the 6th season. Many more to come.

      2/23/14 - Created a new 77 Sunset Strip library with all of two episodes thus far. That may be all I ever find - it is a Warner Brothers show (WB is very protective of it's properties). I figure the only reason these are still up is that they are in segments and they have Spanish sub-titles. Each of the episodes is a Playlist. Stu Bailey and Jeff Spencer were the wisecracking, womanizing private detective heroes of this detective drama series. Stu and Jeff worked out of an office located at 77 Sunset Strip in Los Angeles, right next door to a snazzy restaurant where Kookie worked as a valet. The finger-snapping, slang-talking Kookie occasionally helped Stu and Jeff with their cases, and eventually became a full-fledged member of the detective agency. Rex Randolph and J.R. Hale also joined the firm, and Suzanne was their leggy secretary. Stars: Efrem Zimbalist Jr., Roger Smith and Edd "Kookie" Byrnes. The new library is avaiable via the Mystery, Detectives and Crime Drama Catalog.

      2/23/14 - Added twenty-two episodes to the Danger Man library, which gets us to the end of the second season.

      2/17/14 - Added forty episodes to the WCW Wrestling Monday Nitro library, These links take the viewer directly to YouTube to view the videos, which are not embeddable, in a new browser tab. To return to the Solie's site, just close the new tab. This library, which includes both the very first, and the very last episode of Nitro, is available via the WCW Full Programs Catalog

      2/15/14 - Added nine episodes to the Four Star Playhouse Library. I also went looking for The Waltons episodes after a correspondent on Facebook, Annette Huneault, mentioned that The Waltons patriarch, Ralph Waite, passed away yesterday. I didn't expect to find any because I have looked for them previously with no luck, but was surprised to find about two dozen episodes and a couple of Holiday specials on YouTube. Then I looked at the upload dates and saw that the bulk of the videos had been posted early yeaterday. Obviously Waltons fans had posted them in the wake of Waite's death. The Holiday specials had been up for a couple of weeks, which is still too soon to tell whether or not they will last. So I have bookmarked the videos and will sit on them for a while to see what happens before I start posting them. Stay tuned.

      2/13/14 - I spent the better part of the afternoon today doing maintenance on the Feature Films Catalog. It started with an email I received this morning from a viewer, who noted that some of the Agatha Christie films were dead links. I was able to recover all of them, then decided to go through the entire FF Catalog and found quite a few that were down (mostly YouTube vidoes). I was fairly surprised that I was able repair most of them (probably 90% give or take). So at this point all of the player pages you can reach in the Feature Films Catalog are active (at least for the time being).

      2/12/14 - Created a Shirley Temple's Storybook library with ten episodes to start. Also added two more films to the Shirley Temple Short Film library. Also - when it rains it pours I suppose. We lost another great performer today when Sid Caesar passed away at the age of 91. To celebrate his art I have created a new Sid Caesar Sketch Comedy library with twenty-four of his sketches from 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. Enjoy!

      2/11/14 - Early this morning Shirley Temple passed away at the age of 85. To mark the occassion, I decided to find as many of her films as I could and post them to the existing Shirley Temple library. In fact, I found almost all of them and spent the entire morning updating the library with twenty-two additional films. I also have fourteen of her short films, for which I created a new Shirley Temple Short Film library. Finally, I created a Shirley Temple Catalog in which to house the two libraries. The new catalog is available via the Feature Films and the Catalog of Stars. The Shirley Temple Short Films library can also be reached via the Other Short Films Catalog.

      2/9/14 - Today I added one episode to the Four Star Playhouse Library and finished adding plot summary information to the remaining eight episode player pages that didn't already have it. Also created a new AWA Full Programs Library with forty-eight episodes of AWA Championship Wrestling to start. Many more to come!

      2/6/14 - Today I finished the Adventures of Robin Hood library project by adding the Season and Episode, air date and plot summeries informtation to the remaining 39 player pages. Also added sixteen episodes to the I Love Lucy library. This brings us to the end of the third sesaon. Also created a new Learn to Draw with Jon Gnagy library with ten episodes so far. Jon Gnagy (January 13, 1907 – March 7, 1981) was a self-taught artist most remembered for being America's original television art instructor, hosting You Are an Artist, which began on the NBC network. On May 16, 1946, Jon Gnagy was the first "act" on the first television program broadcast from the antenna atop the Empire State Building. Gnagy pioneered drawing on television in America from the early 1950s throughout the 1960s on his program, Learn to Draw, and his popular art kits are still available. The new library is available via the Instructional Film sub-catalog, located in the News/Documentary/Instructional/Reality Programs Catalog,

      2/5/14 - This afternoon I finished building the The Adventures of Robin Hood TV show library, with the last twenty-five episodes. This doesn't mean I am finished working on the project - I still have several dozen episode player pages to add information too, but at this point the entire series is available in the library. I found the missing episodes of the series on YouTube, though it took some research to gather them all from the 120 or so episodes available there. Now, not only do I have the complete series of my all-time favorite TV show, but I also have almost a complete season (#4) that I have either 1) never seen before or 2) haven't seen since I was a child. Guess what I will be watching tonight...

      2/4/14 - Yesterday I started work revising the The Adventures of Robin Hood TV show library, It was the first series I started collecting - to play on the TV station (MCTV) here in Fort Bragg every Saturday evening and Sunday morning. I found over one hundred episodes on the Archive and downloaded all of them to convert to MPEG-2 format to run on the station equipment. It was what gave me the first germ of the idea for the Uncle Earl TV site. I am basically doing cosmetic work on the pages - adding the Season and Episode, air date and plot summeries informtation.

      If you have never watched this series I recommend it highly. It is one of my all-time favorites A long-running series of adventures featuring Robin of Locksley--Robin and his men protected England from the evil machinations of Prince John while good King Richard was away at the Crusades. The first three of four seasons are almost all here. Note: A number of these episodes are not currently available on Archive.org, but I was able to find them on Hulu. Sorry about the commercials.

      2/3/14 - Added eleven episodes to the The Alfred Hitchcock Hour library. This represents all of the episodes I have found so far. While I was at it I also rearranged the library into proper season and episode order. For those who may have already watched all of the available episodes, the new additions are:
      The Second Wife
      Where the Woodbine Twineth
      Return of Verge Likens
      The Evil of Adelaide Winters
      Final Escape
      Isabel
      Run for Doom
      The Lonely Hours
      Annabel
      Captive Audience
      A Matter of Murder
      Four of the above were replacements for episodes that had been on the site previously, had disappeared from YouTube, and have now been restored. Unfortunately, I can't remember which Four the replacements are.

      2/1/2/14 - Added fifteen episodes to the I Love Lucy library. This brings us to the 8th episode of the 3rd season. Many more to come!

      1/30/14 - No new videos tonight - but I did spend some time cleaning up the Lone Ranger TV Show library. I added the season, episode, airdate, and plot summaries to the existing player pages. I will be adding more episodes soon.

      1/28/14 - Added thirty-two episodes to the The Phil Silvers Show library, which gets us too the 8th episode of the 4th season. More to come! Also added two more episodes to the Four Star Playhouse Library and then re-arranged the library to put them all in season/episode order and added imformation to the player pages regarding season and episode, airdate, plot summaries and stars. This show featured four rotating stars, Charles Boyer, David Niven, Ida Lupino and Dick Powell in individual episodes consisting of everything from comedy to drama to action & adventure and suspense. Also created a new Stage 7 Library with three episodes so far. A TV drama anthology series that aired in 1955. The program's 25 episodes showcased the talents of actors and actresses such as Charles Bronson, Edmond O'Brien, Gene Barry, Phyllis Coates, Frances Rafferty, Macdonald Carey, and Phyllis Thaxter. Some directing was done by Quinn Martin. The new library is located in the Television Drama Catalog.

      1/27/14 - Completed the The Ghost & Mrs. Muir Library by adding the last eighteen episodes. Also added two episodes to the Four Star Playhouse Library.

      1/25/14 - Completed the The Honeymooners Library by adding the remaining twenty-two available episodes. Unfortunately, one episode (episode 35 - Mind Your Own Business) is not yet available. I will keep an eye out for it and will add it as soon as I can find it.

      1/24/14 - At the suggestion of Leeann Cornell (again, on Facebook), I went looking for episodes of The Honeymooners and found...the entire series! I was surprised to learn that there were only 39 episodes of the series. I have created a new The Honeymooners Library with sixteen episodes to start. I will post the remainder of them with a week or so. A bus driver and his sewer worker friend struggle to strike it rich while their wives look on with weary patience. Stars: Jackie Gleason, Art Carney and Audrey Meadows. Unfortunately, the person who posted a lot of these videos too YouTube must have used some conversion application that turned these into wide screen videos - they are stretched out some horizontally, so Mr. Gleason looks even fatter then he really was :-) The new catalog is available via the Funny Guys Catalog.

      1/23/14 - At the suggestion of Marylou McGinnis Crabtree (on Facebook), I went looking for The Ghost & Mrs. Muir TV show and found the entire series on YouTube! So I have created a new The Ghost & Mrs. Muir Library with thirty-two episodes to start. Lovely young widow Carolyn Muir, her two young children, and the maid discover that the New England seaside house they've moved into is haunted by the former owner -- an old salt named Captain Daniel Gregg. Gregg at first resists this intrusion, but he develops a ghostly love for his uninvited guest. Stars: Hope Lange, Edward Mulhare and Reta Shaw. All 50 episodes of this series are available so eighteen more to come! The new library is available via the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog

      1/21/14 - Added five episodes to the Four Star Playhouse Library.

      1/20/14 - At the suggestion of Stan Zeitlin (on Facebook) I went looking for Road Runner Cartoons and found a few, so here is the new Wile E. Coyote and The Road Runner library with twenty-two videos (all I have found thus far). The new library is accessed via the Cartoons sub-catalog within the Short Format film catalog.

      1/18/14 - Added the next fifty-four episodes to the Gunsmoke library. This gets us the more than half way through the fifth season. Many more to come.

      1/15/14 - A landmark day. I created a new I Love Lucy library with twenty-one episodes to start. I have been searching for I Love Lucy episodes since I first created the site, with no luck whatsoever until I discovered a cache of them on Hulu (sorry about the commercials). There are 102 episodes available - not the entire series - in fact the episodes were all jumbled up with incorrect episode numbers and quite a few of them are missing. This is not at all unusual for Hulu. Thank heaven for the IMDB site which allowed me to sort them out and present them in their proper order. Because of the missing episodes, these first 21 episodes takes us through to the second sesaon. Many more to come. The new library is available via the Lucille Ball Catalog, which can be accessed from the Whacky Dames and Feature Films catalogs as well as the Catalog of Stars. Also created a new Route 66 library with thirteen episodes so far. Only fiction series written & shot all over North America. Two young adventurers in a Corvette explore early 60's social problems and changing mores, looking for the right place to settle down while seeking themselves. Stars: Martin Milner and George Maharis. The new library is located in the Television Drama Catalog.

      1/12/14 - Added three episodes to the Buffalo Bill, Jr. library and also rearranged the library into the proper episode order and added episode info to each player page. So far we have twelve episodes altogether. The entire series consists of forty-two episodes, so there is a chance we will get them all eventually. It's the 1890's and Buffalo Bill, Jr. is the marshall in the town of Wileyville, Texas. Stars: Dickie Jones (in the title role), Nancy Gilbert and Harry Cheshire.

      1/8/14 - Added nine matches to the Georgia Championship Wrestling Singles Matches library. Also created a new International Championship Wrestling Singles Matches library with sixteen matches to start and a new International Championship Wrestling Tag Team Matches library with ten matches, and finally, a new International Championship Wrestling Promos/Brawls library with nine promos. All three new libraries are located in the International Championship Wrestling Catalog.

      1/7/13 - Added the next twenty-four more episodes to the Danger Man library, which brings us to the end of the first season. Many more to come. Also created a new Overland Mail Serial (1940) library, in 15 chapters. I suddenly realized today that I had not posted a theatrical serial to the site in a couplke of years. An investigator, Lon Chaney Jr, is assigned to find out why the stagecoach company's stages keep being attacked and sets out to discover who is behind it all. Thin plot and story but basically an action serial. From Universal Pictures. Located in the Theatrical Serials Catalog.

      1/6/14 - Added twenty-eight episodes to the Rocky and His Friends library. These are from Hulu - sorry about the commercials. Many more to come.

      1/3/14 - Added the next twenty-three episodes to the Gunsmoke library. This gets us to the end of the third season - until I find some more of them - not all of the third season shows are available as of yet. Many more to come. Also added four episodes to the Four Star Playhouse Library and four episodes to the My Hero library - giving us fourteen of the thirty-three epsiodes in this series.

      12/31/13 - In a fit of New Years Eve madness - added the nineteen films to the Horror Film library, including:

      Svengali (1931)
      The Most Dangerous Game (1932)
      The Mad Monster (1942)
      The Corpse Vanishes (1942)
      The Flying Serpent (1946)
      Bride of the Gorilla (1951)
      Mesa of Lost Women (1953)
      The Bat 1959)
      Last Woman on Earth (1960)
      Bloodlust (1961)
      The Phantom Planet (1961)
      Ring of Terror (1962)
      Werewolf in a Girls' Dormitory (1962)

      Messiah of Evil (1973)
      Also added Trapped By Television (1936) to the SciFi/Fantasy Film library.

      12/29/13 - Added the eight episodes to the Hollywood Palace library. These episodes are either hosted by, or feature Milton Berle, so I have also added them to the Other Milton Berle TV Appearances library. Also added four episodes to the Milton Berle Show library.

      12/22/13 - Created a new Evening at the Improv library including thirty-six episodes to start. Bud Freidmans Classic showcase for stand up comedy. All of these episodes are in order, listed by the guest host and are from Hulu - sorry about the commercials. By the way Hulu’s player window for these shows is very small for some reason - advise you watch them in full screen mode. The new catalog is available via the Funny Guys Catalog.

      12/21/13 - Added the next twenty-nine episodes to the Gunsmoke library. This gets us to the end of the second season - many more to come.

      12/19/13 - Added the next twenty episodes to the Gunsmoke library. This takes us just into the second season. I waited a month and a half after posting the first twenty-four episodes, juat to make sure they weren't going to disappear for YouTube again. So far so good -- many more to come.

      12/18/13 - Added four episodes to the My Hero library - that brings the total to ten. This entire series consists of only 33 episodes, so I have hopes of finding all of them.

      12/17/13 - Created a new Milton Berle Catalog including a Kraft Music Hall library, a Milton Berle Show library and a Other Milton Berle Appearances library. The new catalog is available via the Funny Guys Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      12/15/13 - Added episodes of You Ask for It, The Donna Reed Show, Men Into Space and Hollywood Squares to the Christmas TV Show library. These are all Christmas themed shows that already had been posted to the site at some point in the past, but were not listed in the Christmas Collection until now.

      12/13/13 - Created a new My Hero library with six episodes of the short-lived 1952 series starring Robert Cummings as a bumbling Real Estate agent, then created a new Robert Cummings Catalog to consolidate this series with Cummings' later hit sitcom The Robert Cummings Show (aka Love That Bob). The new catalog can be found in the Funny Guys Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      12/12/13 - Added Amahl and the Night Visitors (1951) to the Christmas TV Show library and It's a Wonderful Life (1946), A Smoky Mountain Christmas (1986), and Ernest Saves Christmas (1989) to the Christmas Movies library - both libraries are accessed via the The Christmas Collection catalog.

      12/8/13 - Added four shows to the Christmas TV Show library and five films to the Christmas Movies library - both libraries are accessed via the The Christmas Collection catalog.

      12/2/13 - Created a new Danger Man library with the first sixteen episodes to start. Many more to come. John Drake was a special operative for NATO, specializing in security assignments against any subversive element that threatened world peace. The series featured exotic locales from all over the world, but it was relatively down-to-earth and realistic--especially when compared to its successor, "Secret Agent". Stars: Patrick McGoohan, Richard Wattis and Lionel Murton. The new library is available via the Action/Adventure catalog. Also added one episode to the All-Star Revue library

      12/1/13 - Added Charlie Chan on Broadway (1937), In the Secret Serice (1944) and Meeting at Midnight (1944) to the Charlie Chan Film library. Also added Scrooge (1935), and Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas (1999) to the Christmas Film library.

      11/28/13 - Created a new WCW Pay-Per-Views library with eighteen programs to start. There will be many more to come. These links take the viewer directly to YouTube to view the videos, which are not embeddable, in a new browser tab. To return to the Solie's site, just close the new tab. This library is available via the WCW Full Programs Catalog

      11/26/13 - Created a new WCW Wrestling Monday Nitro library with the first sixteen episodes of WCW Monday Nitro from 1995, which is the entire 1995 season. I had a few shows in this library at one time, but they were all taken off of Daily Motion a while back - and so I lost the library completely. These are more likely to stay up, since they have already been restricted by the copyright holders. There will be many more to come - I already have the 1996 and 1997 seasons bookmarked to post soon. These links take the viewer directly to YouTube to view the videos, which are not embeddable, in a new browser tab. To return to the Solie's site, just close the new tab. This library is available via the WCW Full Programs Catalog

      11/24/13 - Added thirteen episodes to the Peter Gunn library. This completes the first and second seasons. I have not found any third season episodes thus far - but I will keep my eyes open.

      11/19/13 - Added five episodes to the Libarace Show library. I used to watch this program as a child and I credit it as one of the major influences in my decision to become an entertainer. These additions double the size of the library to nine Liberace Shows plus a documentary called "Remembering Liberace". More to come if I can find them. Also added two episodes to the Private Secretary library.

      11/18/13 - Created a new Dennis the Menace library with twenty-four episodes to start. The Comic misadventures of television's most well-meaning but misguided boy are back! The lovable Dennis Mitchell left a trail of chaos throughout his suburban neighborhood, yet managed to pry his way into the hearts of millions from week to week. All of these episodes except one are from Hulu - sorry about the commercials. There are 174 episodes available so many more to come! The new Catalog can be accessed via the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog

      11/16/13 - Added twelve more episodes to the 3rd Rock from the Sun (1996-2001) library. This brings us to episode 12 of the 5th season. Many more to come.

      11/13/13 - Created a new The Polly Bergen Show library including two episodes of the series. The Polly Bergen Show was a half-hour 18-episode comedy/variety show, starring then 27-year-old Polly Bergen, which aired on NBC in the 1957-1958 television season. The program is remembered for its impressive guest-star lineup as well as its closing theme song, "The Party's Over" (1956). The Polly Bergen Show alternated in the 9 p.m. EST Saturday time slot with the equally short-lived Club Oasis. I am looking for more of them. The new library is located in the the Variety Shows Catalog. Also added twenty-four episodes to the The Phil Silvers Show library, which takes us too the 10th episode of the 3rd season.

      11/12/13 - Added nine Full Programs to the NWA Full Programs library, including an episodes of NWA Worldwide Wrestling from 1985, NWA Final Conflict 1983, Starrcade 1984, 1985 and 1986, Great American Bash 1985 and the NWA Crockett Cup 1987 Pay-Per-Views. This library takes the viewer directly too YouTube via a new browser tab. To return to the Solie site, close the new tab.

      11/11/13 - Added twenty-four Program Segments to the Georgia Championship Wrestling Program Segments & Full Programs library

      11/10/13 - Added thirteen episodes to the The Donna Reed Show library, which brings us to the end of the first season. Many more to come!

      11/9/13 - Created a new Mike Hammer library with twenty-four episodes to start. It appears that the entire series (there were only two seasons) is available on YouTube. This series is old enough (1956) that I assume it is in the Public Domain. The adventures of Mickey Spillane's tough-talking, brawling, skirt-chasing private detective Mike Hammer, who's always ready to use his fists on a "mug" or his charm on a "skirt" to get the case solved. Stars: Darren McGavin, Bart Burns and Vito Scotti.

      11/5/13 - Created a new Gunsmoke library with twenty-four episodes to start. I know, I know - we have been down this road before... I discovered today what appears to be an Official Gunsmoke YouTube Channel containing the complete 20 Season series. Some of you may remember that about a year or so ago I built a Gunsmoke library with about 200 episodes - only to have them all disappear a few days later - so we will see what happens and continue to proceed with caution. We'll see if it lasts - in the meantime I am just putting a few up and plan to wait at least a month before posting any more of them. Fortunately, I already had the first 24 episodes built from my previous Gunsmoke library. All I had to do was track down each player page and plug in the new embed code.

      11/3/13 - Created a new The Donna Reed Show library with twenty-four episodes to start. These are from Hulu - sorry about the commercials. There are 152 of these episodes available so watch this library grow. The new Catalog can be accessed via the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog and the Catalog of Stars. Also created an NWA Full Programs library including seven episodes of the NWA World Championship Wrestling 90 minute shows from 1986 located in the NWA Catalog. This library takes the viewer directly too YouTube via a new browser tab. To return to the Solie site, close the new tab.

      10/28/13 - Created a new Rocky and His Friends library with twenty-four episodes to start. These are from Hulu - sorry about the commercials. As is not unusual for Hulu, their numbering system on this series is truly bizarre, so I have gone with the episode numbers as listed in the Internet Movie Database (IMDB). There are 184 episodes available, so many more to come. The library is located in the Cartoons sub-catalog within the Short Format film catalog.

      10/27/13 - Finished adding the season and episodes, air dates info, etc., to the current Dragnet library player pages, and then added twenty-one more episodes to the collection. This completes the library for now - until I find more episodes.

      10/23/13 - Added sixty-five full episodes to the Memphis Wrestling Full Episodes library. With one-hundred and fifty-nine episodes, this is the most extensive library on Solie's Wrestling Video site.

      10/20/13 - Created a Gulf Coast/Continental Wrestling Promo library with ten promo videos.

      10/19/13 - Today I rearranged the Gulf Coast Wrestling library into a three part Gulf Coast Wrestling catalog, including Singles Matches, Tag Team Matches, Anglkes & Feuds, and a new Full Programs library. Gulf Coast Championship Wrestling was the forerunner of Continental Championship Wrestling, which was based in Knoxville, Tennessee, from 1974 until 1988 and Dothan, Alabama, from 1978 to 1990, and managed by Ron Fuller. Previously, the territory had also promoted under the name of Southeastern Championship Wrestling prior to 1985. Gulf Coast/Continental Wrestling video is hard to come by, so I am always pleased to announce it when I discover new footage - in this case the aforementioned three Full Program videos, and the Private Pyle Continental angle from 1988. I also made a remarkable find today - five episodes of Angelo Poffo's International Championship Wrestling program from the 1970's. I have therefore created a new ICW Catalog to house the new ICW Full Programs library. Angelo John Poffo (April 10, 1925 – March 4, 2010) was an American professional wrestler and wrestling promoter. He ran International Championship Wrestling for a number of years, holding cards in Tennessee, Kentucky and Arkansas. He was the father of "Leaping" Lanny Poffo and "Macho Man" Randy Savage.

      10/18/13 - Added eight Mid-Atlantic Wrestling full programs from 1986 to the Mid-South/Mid-Atlantic/UWF Full Program library, eight matches to the Big Time Wrestling Singles Matches library and three matches to the Big Time Wrestling Tag Team Matches library.

      10/14/13 - Today I started cleaning up the Dragnet library. Dragnet was one of the first shows I started collecting back in 2010 when I created the Uncle Earl site. Back then I hadn't yet discovered sites like the Internet Movie Database (IMDB) and the TV.com site, where I go these days to identify episode titles, descriptions, air dates, etc. I tended to just throw the episodes up in whatever order I discovered them. So today I made a start on the Dragnet library by putting all of the episodes I have currently into their proper order. I hope to go back and add Season and Episode info, along with plot descriptions and air dates in the coming weeks. I am also about to embark on a thorough search to see how many more episodes I can find. The show went on for eight seasons then went into limbo for a few years only to be revived in 1967 for another three year run, with Harry Morgan as Jack Webb's sidekick. There were also two spin-off series in 1989 and again in 2003, so I expect this library to expand quite a bit. Stay tuned.

      10/12/13 - Added sixteen episodes to the the Combat! Library. Many more to come.

      10/8/13 - Added twenty episodes to the Car 54, Where Are You? Library. These are all I have found so far.

      10/7/13 - Added twelve episodes to the The Adventures of Sir Lancelot Library. This completes the series. Unfortunately, I have lost my small library of Have Gun Will Travel episodes. I had bookmarked about 150 of them but only posted the first 16, then waited to see what would happen. The show disappeared from Hulu a while back as well - so maybe CBS has plans for it - or maybe it is a PC/anti-gun thing going on - the Thought Police - at work...

      10/5/13 - Added eight episodes to the The Adventures of Sir Lancelot Library. This series was one of the first I started collecting when I began to build the Uncle Earl library site back in 2010. Painstakingly researched by the History and Literature Departments of Oxford University, it re-creates some of the notable exploits of the famous knight, as well as the deeds of the other members of King Arthur's court. I found the first ten episodes on the Internet Archive but that was all for quite a while. I just found a cache of twenty - which brings us to episode #30 - the last of the series. I will put more of these up soon.

      9/29/13 - Added six more dramatic films to the Dramatic Films Library, including:

      Outrage (1950),
      Phone Call from a Stranger (1952),
      The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit (1956),
      Count Five and Die (1957),
      Judgment at Nuremberg (1961) and
      13 West Street (1962).

      9/28/13 - Added twelve clasic dramatic films to the Dramatic Films Library, including:

      Hell's House (1932),
      The Rage of Paris (1938),
      Road Show (1941),
      Sundown (1941),
      My Gal Sal (1942),
      Love Story (1944),
      Salome, Where She Danced (1945),
      The Man Who Walked Alone (1945),
      The Lost Weekend (1945),
      Blue Lagoon (1949),
      Outpost in Morocco (1949) and
      The Young Lovers (1949).

      9/24/13 - Created a new Car 54, Where Are You?, with fifteen episodes s far. More to come! The misadventures of two of New York's finest (a Mutt and Jeff pair) in the mythical 53rd precinct in the Bronx. Toody, the short, stocky and dim-witted one either saves the day or muffs things up much to the chagrin of Muldoon, the tall, lanky and smart one.

      9/22/13 - This is not a new posting announcement. I just wanted to mention that I got my first tablet recently, and went out to look at the Uncle Earl site and discovered that the site is tablet friendly. The catalog pages are all fully functional and fit right into the tablet desktop in the landscape mode. The player pages adjust automatically to fit the screen, and when you click on a video it opens in full-screen mode, also automatically. So now you can take Uncle Earl with you wherever you go (I'll try not to eat too much :-)

      9/21/13 - Added seventeen more episodes to the 3rd Rock from the Sun (1996-2001) library. This brings us to the end of the 4th season. Many more to come.

      9/16/13 - Created a new Robert Young Catalog, including seven episodes of Father Knows Best, three episodes of Window on Main Street, and six Robert Young Feature Films. The new Catalog can be accessed via the Family Comedies and Dramas Catalog, the Feature Films Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      9/9/13 - Added twenty-two more episodes to the The Real McCoys (1957–1963) library. these are all I have found so far - forty-seven all together.

      9/8/13 - Added thirty-one full episodes to the Memphis Wrestling Full Episodes library. This brings the total number of episodes to one hundred and three. I am not sure if there will be more - these are all I have been able to track down so far.

      9/7/13 - Added fifty-six full episodes to the Memphis Wrestling Full Episodes library. More to come!

      9/5/13 - Added four matches to the Portland Wrestling Tag Team Matches/Battle Royales & Brawls! library, four Promos to the Portland Wrestling Promos library and twenty-eight full episodes to the Portland Wrestling Full Episodes library.

      8/30/13 - Added forty-four episodes to the Our Miss Brooks library. Miss Brooks teaches English at Madison High, rents a room from Mrs. Davis, gets rides to school with student Walter, fights with Principal Conklin, and tries to snag shy biology teacher Boynton. Stars: Eve Arden, Gale Gordon, Jane Morgan - This library had only four episodes - it is one of the first shows I found on the Internet Archive, but I never found more than those four episodes until yesterday when I discovered large cache of them on YouTube.

      8/28/13 - We lost five episodes from the Science Fiction Theatre library today - the YouTube account holder who posted them was terminated. Still fourteen left. I also discovered last night the the entire Inside the Actors' Studio library was wiped out when that user was banned.

      8/27/13 - Created a new The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis library with thirteen episodes so far. Again, these are shows that are hard to come by. I actually found these a few weeks ago and have been looking all over for more episodes, with no luck so far. 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.

      8/26/13 - Created a new Science Fiction Theatre library with nineteen episodes so far. At the moment, these are all I have been able to find despite and extensive search. More to come (I hope). In this science-fiction anthology series host Truman Bradley introduces stories extrapolated from actual scientific data available in the 1950's, concentrating on such concepts as space flight, UFO's and mental telepathy.

      8/25/3013 - I received a query about the latest Alfred Hitchcock Presents postings. Because they are listed according to Season and Episode order, it was hard for some folks to figure out which ones they were. I have most of the episodes of the series already on the site so any future postings will be fill-ins. To avoid confusion, here is a listing of the most recent batch, including their season and episode numbers to make them easier to find:

      Night of the Execution - Season 3, Episode 13
      Together - Season 3, Episode 15
      Sylvia - Season 3, Episode 16
      Miss Bracegirdle Does Her Duty - Season 3, Episode 18
      The Equalizer - Season 3, Episode 19
      On the Nose - Season 3, Episode 20
      Guest for Breakfast - Season 3, Episode 21

      8/20/13 - Added twenty-eight episodes to the 3rd Rock from the Sun library.

      8/19/13 - Created a new Star Trek: Deep Space Nine library with entire first Season (nineteen episiodes). This is the 4th Star Trek series from Hulu (sorry about the commercials). Unfortunately, as I have mentioned before, Hulu only provides the first season of each series for free. Star Trek: Voyager is a science fiction television series set in the Star Trek universe. Orbiting the liberated planet of Bajor, a Federation space station guards the opening of a stable wormhole to the far side of the Galaxy.

      8/18/14 - Added eleven episodes to the Alfred Hitchcock Presents library eight episodes to the Sgt. Preston of the Yukon library and one episode to the Four Star Playhouse Library.

      8/16/14 - Added nineteen programs to the WWF Full Episodes library. Many more to come!

      8/12/13 - Created a new WWF Full Episodes library including nine episodes of Superstars of Wrestling and twenty-seven episodes of Monday Night RAW. Many more to come! Also added one episode to the Twilight Zone library. This is a very special episode because it is the series pilot that was filmed in 1958 as an episode of Westinghouse Playhouse and was the Rod Serling story of a man from 1958 who woke up in Honolulu, Hawaii, on December 6th, 1941 (the day before Pearl Harbor was bombed by the Japanese Imperial fleet)... was it all a bad dream? Introduced by Desi Arnez and starred William Bendix (famous for The Life of Riley Show) and Duane Hickman (went on to star as Dobie Gillis), Martin Balsom and Jesse White. Thanks to Dennis Carter for this find.

      8/10/13 - Added twenty episodes to the Abbott and Costello Show library, which completes the series.

      8/9/13 - Created a new Lost in Space library with sixteen episodes so far. A space colony family struggles to survive when a spy/accidental stowaway throws their ship hopelessly off course.

      8/8/13 - Added twenty-one episodes to the Mister Ed library. These are the first 21 episodes of the first season, which join the three episodes from later seasons that I already had posted. More to come!

      8/7/13 - Added one episode each to the Dinah Shore Show and the Alan Young/Mr. Ed libraries. While I was at it I discovered that Mr. Ed is available on Hulu, so there will many more to come. Also created a new Alan Young Catalog to house three new libraries for Alan Young Show, Mister Ed, and an unaired pilot, Mr. Terrific.

      8/5/13 - Added fifteen matches to the Puroresu - Tag Team Matches library. Also created a new World Championship Wrestling Catalog with a new World Championship Wrestling Full Programs Library including thirty-one full episodes of WCW Pro from Chicago, and a new World Championship Wrestling Singles Matches Library with eighteen matches. More to come!

      8/4/13 - Recreated the Whose Line Is I tAnyway? library. Whereas previously I had several seasons of the American version with Drew Cary - those were all taken down from YouTube because of the produers' (Warner Brothers) objection. The new library consists of fifty-six episodes of the original UK version of the show with Clive Anderson as the host. There is also a second page which contains eight Specials and Compilations from the American version. Located in the Funny Guys Catalog. Also added fifteen matches to the Puroresu - Singles Matches library.

      8/3/13 - Added twelve episodes to the 3rd Rock from the Sun library. This takes us into the beginning of the 3rd season of the series. Also added Last Request and Enough Rope for Two to the Alfred Hitchcock Presents library.

      8/2/13 - Created a new Chester Morris Catalog featuring thirteen of the fourteen Boston Blackie films starring Morris, plus seven Other Chester Morris Films. Chester Morris born John Chester Brooks Morris in New York City, the son of Broadway stage actor William Morris and the performer Etta Hawkins. He made his Broadway debut at 17 in Lionel Barrymore's The Copperhead. He was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor for Alibi (1929) directed by Roland West. He starred in the early prison film The Big House (1930). His career gradually declined in the late 1930s, with roles in B-movies such as Smashing the Rackets with Edward J. Pawley (1938) and Five Came Back (1939). His career revived when from 1941 to 1949 he played the character Boston Blackie in 14 low-budget movies produced by Columbia Pictures, starting with Meet Boston Blackie. The Chester Morris Catalog is accessed via either the Feature Films Catalog or the Catalog of Stars.

      7/30/13 - Added two episodes each to the Dinah Shore Show, the Dupont Theater, and the My Little Margie libraries, and five episodes to the Four Star Playhouse Library. Also created a new Gale Storm Films Library with eight feature films and consolidated it with the My Little Margie Library to create a Gale Storm Catalog. Also added nine matches to the WWF Tag Team Library.

      7/29/13 - Added twenty-two matches to the WWF Singles Matches Library including several famous (and/or infamous) matches, one match to the NWA Singles Matches Library, the infamous incident during which Big John Studd cut off Andre the Giant's hair to the WWF Tag Team Library and an interview with Don Muraco to the WWF Promos Library. More to come!

      7/28/13 - Created Classic WWF video libraries in the WWF Catalog including eight videos each in the Promos, Tag Team and Singles Matches libraries. I suddenly remembered earlier this evening that I had posted number of WWF videos to the Daily Motion site some years ago. The Catalog is a bit small but it will grow quickly.

      7/27/13 - Created a new Gulf Coast/Continental Wrestling library with twenty videos so far - all I have been able to find, actually. Gulf Coast Championship Wrestling was the forerunner of Continental Championship Wrestling, which was based in Knoxville, Tennessee, from 1974 until 1988 and Dothan, Alabama, from 1978 to 1990, and managed by Ron Fuller. Previously, the territory had also promoted under the name of Southeastern Championship Wrestling prior to 1985. Gulf Coast footage is hard to come by, so this is a single library, but it is shown at the sub-catalog level on the main Solie's Wrestling Video library page.

      7/25/13 - Created a new Big Time Wrestling/IWA - Full Progrms library with eighteen episodes so far to the Big Time Wrestling/IWA - Catalog

      7/23/12 - At the suggestion of my friend, Kit Mosden, I created a new Science In Action library with fifteen episodes in it so far. Science in Action was a weekly half-hour television program devoted to science. The program was produced by the California Academy of Sciences, and was broadcast from 1950-1966. It was thus among the first live science television program in the United States. The new library is available via the News/Documentary (Reality) Programs Catalog. Also added fourteen more episodes to the Abbott and Costello Show library.

      7/22/12 - Created a new Have Gun Will Travel library with sixteen episodes in it so far, from YouTube. This replaces the version of the library which disappeared when the channel which they resided was terminated. The old library was created on July 25, 2012 - almost exactly a year ago.

      7/16/13 - Added eight matches to the Championship Wrestling from Florida - Singles Matches library.

      7/13/13 - Added eight episodes to the The Phil Silvers Show library. I have started watching these myself. Years ago I had a very extensive collection of Bilko on VHS tapes. I leant them to a dirty rat piano player who shall remain nameless (Kenny Cupperman!), who then put them in a storage facility and proceeded to lose them!!! I never saw them again!! I have almost the entire series bookmarked at this point and the new collection will be much larger than the one I had before. Lets hope YouTube leaves them up. I saw something about this being 50 years aince the series premiered - a 50 Year Anniversary DVD Release of the series, which means it might be in the public domain at this point. Also added ten videos to the AWA Wrestling Promos library and added a 13-part compilation - Midnight Rockers In Memphis /AWA (1986) to both the AWA and Memphis Wrestling Catalogs.

      7/12/13 - Ceated a new The Phil Silvers Show library with sixteen episodes so far. Many more to come! The Phil Silvers Show (aka You'll Never Get Rich/Sgt.

Colonel Hall, nominally in charge of the base tries to keep Bilko's plans in check. Bilko runs every money making scheme that he thinks he can pull off.

      6/10/13 - Created a new Highway Patrol library, including the first twenty-four shows from the first season. These episodes are from Hulu (sorry about the commercials) and only the first of four seasons is available at this time. Fifteen episodes to go. This library is accessed via the Mystery, Detectives and Crime Drama Catalog.

      6/9/13 - Created a new Full Programs library, including eight shows from various Japanese promotions located in the Puroresu (Wrestling from Japan) Catalog in the Solie's Wrestling Videos Catalog.

      6/7/13 - Completed the Men Into Space (1959-20) library, by adding the last fourteen episodes. This library now has the full series available. Also created a new Puroresu (Wrestling from Japan) Catalog with fourteen Singles Matches and ten Tag Team Matches to the Solie's Wrestling Videos Catalog.

      6/4/13 - Created a new Men Into Space (1959-20) library, with twenty-one of the thirty-eight episodes in the series. The more-or-less realistic adventures of Colonel Ed McCauley, head of the American space program. He battles saboteurs, budget cuts, defective equipment and other problems in outer space. Stars: William Lundigan, Joyce Taylor and Charles Herbert. Accessable via the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror catalog. Many more to come!

      6/3/13 - Added twenty episodes to the Alfred Hitchcock Presents (1985-89) library. These are mostly remakes of episodes from the original series (1955–62) right down to the titles and the introductions by the master, which have been reissued in colorized versions to blend in with the new episodea which were shot in color. Also added A String of Beads (1954), The Bomb (1954) and The Wild Bunch (1955), to the Four Star Playhouse library.

      6/1/13 - I spent this afternoon arranging the Alfred Hitchcock Presents library into the correct chronological order. When I first started building this library I didn't bother with that, figuring that each episode of the series is a self contained teleplay - there is no story-arc, for instance, like there frequently is in most episodic TV shows. Besides, I started with just a few episodes - maybe a dozen, if that. It was one of the first libraries I built on the site and the first iteration of it all fit on one page. Now I have episodes from all seven seasons of the original series, broken into eight library pages, so putting them in order makes it easier to search for the ones that are missing. Also added two singles matches and nine tag team matches to the Memphis Wrestling Catalog in the Solie's Wrestling Videos Catalog.

      5/31/13 - Added sixteen episodes to the Alfred Hitchcock Presents library. Sincle I have been told by at least three people that they have been watching these as fast as I put them up, and because of design considerations I have recently shuffled the order of the episodes - here is a list of the episodes I just posted: Revenge, The Rose Garden, Malice Domestic, The Mail Order Prophet, The Silent Witness, The Young One, The Jokester, A Personal Matter, The Morning of the Bride, Cheap Is Cheap, Invitation to an Accident, Hooked, Gratitude, The Hat Box, Most Likely to Succeed and Victim Four.

      5/30/13 - Created a new Rumpole of the Bailey (1978–1992) library with the first three seasons. Rumpole of the Bailey is a British television series created and written by the British writer and barrister John Mortimer. It stars Leo McKern as Horace Rumpole, an aging London barrister who defends any and all clients, and has been spun off into a series of short stories, novels, and radio programmes. This library is accessable via the Television Drama Catalog.

      5/29/13 - Added three episodes to the Colgate Comedy Hour library and nine episodes to the The Buccaneers library, which patches some major holes in the first (and only) season of the series. Also added Night Passage (1957), Mohawk (1952), Blowing Wild (1953), and Vera Cruz (1954) to the Western Films library.

      5/28/13 - In a fit of gross self-aggrandisement I created a new Earl Oliver & Friends Catalog with four sub-catalogs covering the music videos I have produced (and sometimes starred in) over the past twenty odd years. The new EO&F catalog is accessable via the Musical Programs Catalog.

      5/27/13 - Created a new Circus Boy library with only three episodes so far - I hope to add more later. This library is available via the Western TV Shows and the Kid Shows Catalogs.

      5/26/13 - Created a new Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts library with seventeen episodes and two compilations featuring Red Buttons and Don Rickles accessed via the Funny Guys Catalog.

      5/24/13 - Created a new Best of Groucho Catalog with fifteen episodes of "You Bet Your Life" with Groucho Marx. This collection is from Hule - sorry about the comercials... I decided to segregate these episodes from the original You Bet Your Life library. They are accesed via a link on the original library page.

      5/22/13 - Created a new Solie's Wrestling Videos Catalog with nine sub-catalogs representing most of the old Wrestling territories in the US. At present there are more than five hundred videos posted with matches, promo spot and evensome full programs. Lots more to come!

      5/10/13 - Created a new The Nanny library with thirty-two episodes so far, located in the Whacky Dames Catalog.

      5/8/13 - Created a new Frankie Laine Time library with four episodes so far located in both the Musical Programs, and the Variety Shows Catalogs, and the Catalog of Stars. Added eleven episodes to the Alfred Hitchcock Presents library. This completes the library until I find some more episodes. By the way, I still have episodes to add to the The Alfred Hitchcock Presents (1985-89) and the The Alfred Hitchcock Hour libraries. Also added fifteen episodes to the Star Trek - the Original Series library, which brings us to the end of the first season.

      5/7/13 - Added forty episodes to the Combat! Library. I thought that I had all of the episodes of this series bookmarked, but I am now finding that some of them, usually in batches of several consecutive episodes, have the embedding disabled by request of the person who posted the videos. There seems to be no rhyme or reason to why this was done for only certain episodes, and it wasted my time because I completed about fifteen inactive pages before I discovered the problem. I am now getting around this by pasting each embed into a test page and then making sure the embed is active BEFORE I complete the page for that episode. This naturally slows down my work, so that means that this library will take a while to complete, and that the finished library will NOT include ALL the episodes.

      5/6/13 - Created a new 3rd Rock from the Sun library with forty-three episodes accessed via the Funny Guys Catalog. Another of my personal favorites. The library so far includes all of the first season episodes, plus nine from the second season. Many more to come.

      5/5/13 - Created a new The New Perry Mason (1973-74) library with thirteen of the fifteen episodes in the series. This library is available as an appendix of the Perry Mason (Original Series) library and can also be accessed via the Mystery, Detectives and Crime Drama Catalog. Also added The Case of the Skin-Deep Scandal (1993), a TV Movie, to the Perry Mason (Original Series) library.

      5/4/13 - Created a new Raymond Burr Catalog with ten Feature Films, five episodes of Perry Mason and three Other Raymond Burr Television Appearances. Accessed via the Feature Films, the Mystery, Detectives and Crime Drama catalogs and also the Catalog of Stars. Thanks to Richard Karch for suggesting I look for Perry Mason episodes.

      5/2/13 - Added thirty-nine episodes to the Whose Line Is It Anyway? library. This takes us up to the 20th episode of the 3rd season (79 episodes total). By the way, I discovered that there were only 20 episodes in the 1st season, so we are on track to post the entire series (8 seasons total). Added one episode each to the Annie Oakley, the Musical Specials, and the I Led Three Lives libraries. Also created a new Cowboy G-Men library with two episodes in the Western TV Shows Catalog.

      4/30/13 - Today I decided to try an experiment. I recently found all 5 of the Star Trek series' available on Hulu. They all have embed codes so I can post them on the site. What is confusing is that while some of the episodes are on the Free Hulu service - the bulk of them are on HuluPlus - which my wife and I pay for (about $8 a month). So am I to believe that I can embed these shows that are part of the paid service and display them on my site FOR FREE??? This makes sense HOW? It is either an oversight, or there is some kind of mechanisms to turn off the embeds at some point. I took one of the paid shows and embedded it into a test page on the site - and the video plays just fine.

      For now I have posted the first fourteen episodes of Star Trek - the Original Series on the site - there are twenty-nine free episodes (the first season). I will probably finish posting the first season sometime next week. The Star Trek library is located in both the SciFi, Fantasy & Horror catalog and the Action/Adventure catalog. I will leave the test page up and see how it goes.

      4/29/13 - Created a new I, Claudius (1976) library. I, Claudius was a 1976 BBC Television adaptation of Robert Graves's I, Claudius and Claudius the God. Written by Jack Pulman, it proved one of the corporation's most successful drama serials of all time. The history of the Roman Empire as experienced by one of its rulers. Unfortunately, Episode 2 - Family Affairs, is missing from this collection thus far. If I can find it I will add it later. The library is available in the Historical Drama Catalog.

      4/28/13 - Added twenty-four episodes to the Inside the Actors Studio library.

      4/27/13 - Added an appearance on the Steve Allen Show (1957) to the Ginger Rogers library.

      4/26/13 - Added Zorro the Gay Blade (1981) to the Zorro Feature Films library and the Action Adventure Films library. Thanks, Dennis!

      4/25/13- Added sixteen episodes to the Alfred Hitchcock Presents library.

      4/18/13 - Today I completed Monty Python's Flying Circus library with final thirty-two episodes. This is another library that was very easy to build because it only involved changing episode numbers and titles. According to idbm, all but one of the episodes had titles.

      4/17/13 - Created a new Monty Python's Flying Circus library with the entire first season (thirteen episodes). Many more to come. Thanks to Dennis Carter for pointing me in this direction. This library is accessed via the Funny Guys Catalog and the Catalog of Stars.

      4/16/13 - Tonight I added the 4th Season of Mork & Mindy to the Jonathan Winters Library. There are twenty-two epsisodes. Winters co-starred as Mork & Mindy's son, Mearth, during the final season of the series. I have all of the M&M epsiodes bookmarked and will eventually add the other three seasons - but I wanted to go ahead and add these right away to compliment the Winters library.

      4/15/13 - Added an episode starring Eleanor Roosevelt to the What's My Line? library, and episodes of Break the Bank (1955) and Chopsticks (1958) to the Misc. Game Shows library. Also created a new Youth Exploitation Films library with nineteen films, located in the Propaganda Films Catalog.

      4/14/13 - Created a new Muppets Tonight library with twenty-one episodes so far. Muppets Tonight was a continuation of The Muppet Show, set in a television studio, rather than a theater. It ran on ABC from 1996-1998 and ran reruns on Disney Channel from 1997-2002. As of 2013, it was the last television series to star The Muppets characters. This library is accessed via the Funny Guys, Kid Shows, Musical Programs, and the Variety Shows Catalogs, and the Catalog of Stars.

      4/12/13 - In honor of the passing of Jonathan Winter today, I have assembled a Jonathan Winters Library, including the fourteen television appearances, a long form interview from the Archive of American Television (2011) and one feature length film - Certifiably Jonathan (2007). One of the unique things about this remarkable funny man was that almost everything he did was improvisational. There is a lot of material available, so this library will grow as time goes by. Also added Heartbeat (1946) to both the Basil Rathbone and the Ginger Rogers libraries.

      4/11/13 - Added ten matches and two full programs to the Robot Wars library.

      4/10/13 - Tonight, after watching an episode of Craig Ferguson, with Drew Carey as his guest, I did a search on YouTube for Drew Carey and then created a new Whose Line Is It Anyway? library with a total of forty episodes - twenty episodes from the first season (all I have found so far) and twenty episodes from the second season, to start. These pages are very easy to create because the only things that change are the episode numbers and the embed code variables. I can turn them out at about one per minute, so many more to come!

      4/9/13 - In honor of the passing of Annette Funicello yesterday, I have assembled an Annette Funicello Library, including the nineteen part "Annette" serial from the Mickey Mouse Club, her three appearances on the Disney's Zorro series, a episodes of Wagon Train in which she co-starred with Ross Martin, Back to the Beach (1987), with Frankie Avalon and The Mickey Mouse Club Story, a documentary aired on the Disney Channel in 1995. Just a little personal story - when the Mickey Mouse Club debut on ABC in 1955 I was seven years old. Annette was the first girl I ever looked at as...well, a girl! Despite the fact that she was five years older than me, I used to dream about her - she was my first big crush. Enjoy!

      4/7/13 - Created a new Boston Blackie Film library with thirteen of the fourteen Boston Blackie films to compliment the Boston Blackie TV library. This, of course, necessitated creating a Boston Blackie Catalog to house both libraries.

      4/2/13 - Created a new Combat! Library with twenty-four episodes to start, accessed via the the Television Drama, Historical Drama and Action/Adventure Catalogs. Combat! was an American television program that originally aired on ABC from 1962 until 1967.

It appears that most of the first three seasons are currently available, so there will be many more to come. Thanks to Margaret Cutter for her suggestion on Facebook.

I hope to be able to complete this library eventually, but at the moment I am stymied. Watch 'em while I still got 'em!!

      2/12/13 - Added six films to the Alfred Hitchcock Films library. Also divided the library into silent films and talkies. I have also begun to notice that most of the player pages no longer require the auxilliary full-screen link that I have been providing on all pages. I will start leaving them off altogether soon - but right now I want to make sure this feature will be permanent.

      2/10/13 - Added fourteen episodes to the Outer Limits library. As with all but one of the previous episodes posted, these are all from Hulu. There will be many more episodes before the library is finshed.

The revival episodes are in color and were produced well after Hitchcock's death in 1980. The stories are those of the master, retold with different actors and directors. I will create a library for the revival shows sometime in the next week and start adding them slowly. I don't want a repeat of the Gunsmoke tragedy, where I built a couple hundred pages only to have them all shut down just about the time I finished! :-)

Thanks again to Dennis Carter for finding the remaining episodes and providing the list in the proper order. Dennis also provided detailed descriptions of each episode, which will be added to the pages as I have time. Also added two TV movies from the 1990s to the Other Sherlock Holmes' TV Catalog - starring Christopher Lee and Patrick MacNee as Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson.

      10/29/12 - Added four episodes to the Sherlock Holmes US TV Series library. Belated thanks to Dennis Carter for finding these great Basil Rathbone portrayal of the "private consulting detective" I've been putting up for a couple of days. I now have all fourteen of these films. They spurred me to do a little search of my own and uncover a raft of episodes of the superb BBC Sherlock Holmes TV show froym 1984 starring Jeremy Brett - including three TV movies! I only hope they last...YouTube videos have a tendency to disappear... Also created a new Other Sherlock Holmes' TV Catalog - a catch-all for miscellaneous Holmes television vehicles with a British TV movie and a UK pilot episode for a series that failed to get on the air, so far.

      10/28/12 - Added seven films to the Sherlock Holmes Films library. Also creatd a new Sherlock Holmes BBC TV Series library with sixteen episodes and two TV Movies. All located in the Sherlock Holmes Catalog

      10/21/12 - Added eight documentary war films to the Documentary Films library.

      Also wanted to mention that I have been making steady inprovements to the site generally. For instance I installed a video window on the front page to feature a "Librarian's Choice" video. Either an interesting newly acquired video or else something appropos of the season (the current one is "Night of the Living Dead"). I have also added description copy to many of the library pages in recent weeks. These are simple additions to existing pages so I havn't been chronicaling them here. I have also been consolidating TV and Film libraries featuring the same artist into sub-catalog items which are then located in both the Television and Film catalogs under that artist's name. This improvement makes it easier to find that artist's work regardless of where you are on the site.

      10/23/12 - Added five films to the Dramatic Films library.

Of these last additions I have the feeling that some of them may not last long because they are all relatively recent movies (1981 and newer). However, some the most recent are actually official "YouTube Free Movies" and so I am confidendent that they will remain available. NOTE: A few in this catagory, in this and other libraries, provide an embed code - but when you click on the window it sends you to YouTube to watch the video. You can use your back button to return to the site after watching the video, if you wish.

      8/27/12 - A few days ago a visitor to the site let me know that one the Drama Films in the library (The Animal Kingdom) had been taken off of YouTube. Fortunately, in that particular case, there was another copy of the film on Archive.org so I was able to substitute that copy. This caused me to go back over some of the recent postings and I found a few more YouTube videos that were broken, including an episode of One Step Beyond, and two from the You Bet Your Life library.

      Please help me - if you come across any dead pages please let me know via email at: Earl@solie.org. Thanks!

      8/25/12 - Added two feature films to the Bob Hope library. While doing so it occurred to me that it was time to separate Hope's Movie and Television appearances into two libraries. The link above will take you too a Bob Hope catalog page with thumbnail images linked to the separate TV and Film libraries. Then, after adding four films and a Blooper Reel to the Abbott & Costello catalog I also decided to split it into Television and Film libraries.

YouTube videos are designated with a (Y) symbol, Hulu with an (H), Google with a (G), Blip.TV with a (B), Mixin with an (MX), Lockerz with an (L), LikeTelevision with an (LT), MySpace with an (M), DailyMotion with a (D) and eBaum's World with (eB).

      8/9/12 - Well, unfortunately, I have just found out that "The Gunsmoke Channel" on YouTube has been shut down for multiple content violations. That basically cancels out most of the work I have been doing over the last two weeks. I had built pages for 270 episodes, plus 10 library pages and the two index pages. All for naught... I am actually concerned that my activities may have led to the shutdown, I drew attention to the channel - although I am sure that the this would have happened eventually...I have some personal experience with having one of my own YouTube channels shut down a couple of years ago - my own content violations were nowhere near as extensive as those involved in this instance. I have eliminated all previous references Gunsmoke in order to avoid confusion.

      NOTE: This does not completely gut the Gunsmoke library - there are a few episodes available from a different YouTube channels. I do suggest that they be watched as soon as possible, fearing that they could disappear at any time.

I decided to build this Sports catalog because I really wanted to post the Roller Derby games, but I was disappointed to discover that professional sports programming is very hard to come by in the Public Domain. I will continue to search for other videos to add to this catalog.

So I am loading this temporary Commercials library with 14 items in it, which will feature mostly black & white consumer product commercial from 1950s-60 TV. Many of these items are compilations.

      4/24/12 - This evening I finished adding the Full Screen functionality to all of the remaining player pages. Whew! I'm glad that's done! You may still come across some of the old style players here and there. There were some instances where the collector decided to load more than one episode of a show to a common Archive Item. With the new embedded player - those multiple files would all play one after the other in a playlist. In order to present them as separate programs - each with their own player page - I found it necessary to keep them all in the old style embed code, which is based on the individual video file names, as opposed to the new embed code which is based on the common Item Identifier. In some instances, such as a couple of multi-part theatrical serials - Jungle Jim and The Phantom - the separate chapters for each item are presented in this manner.

      4/21/12 - Added episodes of A Show Called Fred, Duffy's Tavern, The Garry Moore Show, and Dennis the Menace to the Comedy Specials library. Also created a new Mr. Ed library with two episodes in it under the Funny Guys! catalog.

      4/16/12 - I am sure that many of you have noticed that the new version of the embedded player does not yet have Full Screen functionality. There is a "Fullscreen" button, but if you click on it, nothing happens. I have been assured that down the road, as browser technology changes, the button will become functional. In the meantime, I am working to restore the Full Screen function using somewhat of a "back door" method.

      I am placing a link just below the video window on each player page that reads "Click here for fullscreen. Use your Back button to return to this page." Clicking the link takes you to the address of the embedded video file on the Archive.org server, where the video then displays at it's "true" size, which is considerably larger than the embed on my player page. If you move your cursor over video window, the control bar will appear near the bottom of the window. The Fullscreen button is at the right end of the bar - on some browsers clicking it will display the video in Full Screen mode. To return to the player window, click on the browser "Back" button, or simply hit the "Backspace" key on your keyboard.

      4/15/12 - Added one episode each to the Jack Benny Program, the Jimmy Durante and the Lucy Show libraries. Also added an episode of Twenty Questions to the Game Show Specials library and an episode of March Of Time to the Reality Specials library

      4/9/12 - For those of you who have been following the trials and tribulations surrounding the Uncle Earl TV site, I want to let everyone know that the site is now about 75% upgraded to the iframe style embed codes and should be complete in a week or so. In the meantime, all of the player pages are currently working so don't let any of this stop you from enjoying the site.

      iframe is the YouTube standard so this assures that the site will continue to function into the future.

      The iframe uses a server based player application so the outboard coding is very simple (one line, actually) and it is generalized so that in the future, as the browser technology changes, these player pages will continue to function as video streams. As long as the Internet Archive exists - this site will be here to make some sense of it...

      As soon as I finish this project, I will be able to get back to adding videos to the site.

      3/26/12 - Good news, everything on the Uncle Earl site started working again today. I was just getting set to embark on yet another full site update when I noticed a video working that wasn't working yesterday. I have gone through the site extensively and have yet to find a non-functioning page. I did contact the Internet Archive late last week and alerted them to the problems they were causing - the squeaky wheel effect, apparently :-)

      I am going to continue with the update, but do it off line and save the files separately. That way I can restore the site in a matter of minutes if and when the time comes.

      1/25/12 - Added one episode to the Trouble with Father library.

      1/24/12 - Today I conducted a comprehensive study to determine exactly how many streaming video pages there are on this site. The number I came up with is 3522 as of today. This just counts the actual player pages - discarding all of the image files, and library pages.

      When I first began collecting programs to download, in late 2009, I first went out and started collecting bookmarks for the individual programs and storing them in library folders. This is pretty much mindless work - just grabbing whatever comes to hand - sorting it out later. In time, I started building individual program library folders. I did this for months and amassed a formidable number of bookmarks - several thousand - at that point I had not yet conceived of this site.

      When I realized the potential for this site as an on-line video display collection, I started building pages from my bookmarks. So for the past two years I have been steadily building the site, using this mass of bookmarks... and now I have almost come to the end of them. Of course, I am still collecting new programs, but at a much slower pace - basically as fast as colectors upload the stuff - which is sporadic at best - so it is inevitable that this library's progress will slow down considerably.

      If you pay attention too this Update Page, you will have noticed that lately I have been adding more to the various Feature Films libraries, then to the television libraries. This will continue for a while as I catch up from having neglected these libraries in favor of the more fascinating TV programs:-) I have a few bookmarked Feature Films yet to catalog, and have not yet fully explored that genre on the Internet Archive.

      I plan to continue the Update Page and monthly Newletter listings, they will just become somewhat more sparce going forward.

      Stay Tuned.
