THE DICK VAN DYKE SHOW: NOW IN LIVING COLOR!, a new one-hour special with two newly colorized back-to-back classic episodes of the beloved 1960s series, premieres on Friday, December 14, 2018 from 9-10pm ET/PT on CBS. Series creator and co-star Carl Reiner personally selected the two episodes to showcase his favorite episodes featuring Dick Van Dyke.

"After seeing only two seconds of 92-year-old Dick dancing in the new MARY POPPINS movie, I picked shows that featured Dick's physical comedy," said Reiner. "He was, is and will always be the greatest entertainer I have ever seen." The special features the Season 1 episode "Where Did I Come From," written by Carl Reiner, and the Season 4 episode "Never Bathe on Saturday," also written by Reiner.

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 was first presented 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 presented on March 31, 1965, during season four.
