Down-home humor and an endearing cast of characters helped to make The Andy Griffith Show one of the most beloved comedies in the history of television. Introduced as a spinoff from The Danny Thomas Show in 1960, The Andy Griffith Show ran for eight seasons in prime time. Widower Andy Taylor divides his time between raising his young son, Opie, and his job as sheriff (and Justice of the Peace) of the sleepy North Carolina town, Mayberry. Andy and Opie live with Andy’s Aunt Bee, who serves as a surrogate mother to both father and son. Andy’s nervous cousin, Barney Fife, is his deputy sheriff whose utter incompetence is tolerated because Mayberry is virtually crime-free.
Hilarity finds a home in the most unlikely of places — a World War II German POW camp — in this 1960s comedy series. Bob Crane stars as Col. Robert Hogan, an irascible wise guy who leads his fellow prisoners in a variety of mad escape plots. The butts of the jokes are the starched-stiff Germans, particularly Col. Wilhelm Klink (Werner Klemperer), whose exasperated cry of “Hogan!” became one of the show’s many repeatable catchphrases.
Korea, 1950. They were a MASH (Mobile Army Surgical Hospital) unit stationed three miles from the front. Incoming helicopters full of wounded brought the horrors of war to them daily and sometimes bullets flew right outside the operating room door. Occasional hilarity and constant hijinks were all that kept them sane.
Loosely based on real-life MASH unit 8055, life at the 4077 revolved around the day-to-day routines of Captain “Hawkeye” Pierce, Captain “Trapper” McIntyre, Lieutenant Colonel Henry Blake, Major Margaret Houlihan, Major Franklin Burns and Corporal “Radar” O’Reilly. Through these characters, viewers traveled beyond the long hours and the horrors of the operating room to a place where friendships were forged, laughter was found and drinks were served.

Seven people set sail on what is scheduled to be a three-hour sightseeing tour on the charter boat The Minnow, get caught in a storm and end up stranded on an uncharted tropical island together. The comedy comes from the failed attempts at escaping the island and the interaction of the very diverse group: comprised of a rotund but happy-go-lucky skipper, Jonas Grumby (known as “The Skipper” ); his bumbling but well-meaning first mate, Gilligan; a snobby well-to-do millionaire, Thurston Howell III and his wife, Lovey; a buxom sexy movie star bombshell, Ginger; a high-school science professor, Roy Hinkley (called “The Professor” ); and a nice country girl, Mary Ann. Viewers of the venerable series would be correct to ponder the impossible number of guests who visited the islands, the incredible versatility of the common coconut and the fact that the castaways somehow managed to win the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival.

A young man and a young woman meet, begin dating, fall in love and get married. What more could anyone want or expect? Well, when the young woman is a witch it can make for an interesting and complicated relationship.
Elizabeth Montgomery is Samantha Stevens, a witch who decides to try living a mortal’s life as a suburban housewife to her ad-executive husband Darrin. Dick York portrayed her loving husband for the first five seasons and was replaced by Dick Sargent for the final three of the series. Samantha swears off using witchcraft which doesn’t sit well with her mother Endora (Agnes Moorehead), who sees her son-in-law Derwood as a hindrance.
The Stevens household has one bizarre event happening after another, usually caused by Endora or one of Samantha’s other magically-inclined relatives. Through it all, Darrin and Samantha make the best of everything and get to share their life with their two children, Tabitha and Adam. This top-ranked sitcom was enjoyed by its audience for eight seasons. So sit back, relax and let Samantha’s nose twitches entertain you!
Rescued from a bottle (and a deserted island) by a U.S. astronaut, a scantily clad genie named Jeannie becomes his slave and eventually falls in love with him.
