The Dick Van Dyke Show -- Now in Living Color! - "Where Did I Come From" / "Never Bathe on Sunday" (CBS, 8:00PM ET/PT) (Repeat)
THE DICK VAN DYKE SHOW – NOW IN LIVING COLOR! is a one-hour special featuring two colorized classic episodes of the beloved 1960s series airing back-to-back on Friday, May 28 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT), on the CBS Television Network. Series creator and co-star Carl Reiner personally selected the two episodes to showcase his favorite episodes featuring Dick Van Dyke. (Originally broadcast 12/14/18.)

The special features the season one episode “Where Did I Come From,” written by Carl Reiner, and the season four episode “Never Bathe on Saturday,” also written by Reiner. The main titles and end credits of the two episodes are seamlessly combined into one set—at the beginning and end of the hour—without interruption between each.

In “Where Did I Come From,” 6-year-old Ritchie asks his parents the inevitable “where did I come from?” question, and they recall the days before his birth. The episode originally aired on Jan. 3, 1961 during the series’ first season.

In “Never Bathe on Saturday,” the Petries’ romantic second honeymoon becomes a disaster when Laura’s toe gets caught in a bath spout. The episode was first aired on March 31, 1965, during season four.
