Icon15 What, COLOR???? WOW

I was a kid in the '60's and I can remember watching My Mother The Car on TV when it was new. I recently got the DVD set and boy was I surprised to see the show was in color! I have thought all these years My Mother The Car was a b/w show because that was the only way I had ever seen it (we didn't get a color TV till 1967). What a pleasant surprise, I had no idea. I wonder how many other shows I just assume are b/w but are really color because of my b/w tv memories.

I think it's another show that was made when TV was going from b/w to color and some episodes are in color and some are in b/w

I think being in color made it really good. The bright red old car was beautiful!! Wouldn't have been the same seeing it in black and white!

Cool

The Lucy Show started filming in color in season 2 although it continued to air in black and white for at 2 more seasons since so few people had color TV sets in the early 60's. So on the DVD's only season one is in B&W and season 2 and later are in color.

Only 5% of households in 1965 had a color TV; it wouldn't be until 1972 that most homes had a color TV.

Our family must have been in that 95% of b/w only households. I remember in 1967 the first TV show I saw in color was the Superman cartoons that were on on Saturdays. Wow, I can still remember seeing Superman flying in color, it was very exciting in '67. Kids today aren't even interested in watching those great toons.

My parents' home didn't have a color tv until 1979, and it was secondhand.

"My Mother the Car" was one series that was always in color, even its pilot. A few 1965 series on NBC, like "Get Smart" and "Hank", had B&W pilots but then went to color for their remaining episodes.
