Are these real episodes of The Dick Van Dyke Show or did we make them up?

Many episode titles parodied famous movies, plays and even other TV shows.

The writers of The Dick Van Dyke Show, led by creator Carl Reiner, not only crafted a great show with a familiar sitcom setting, they also infused the series with weirder elements like wacky dream sequences. It’s one of the many reasons The Dick Van Dyke Show has stood the test of time.

Even the titles of the episodes are fun and creative. They reference everything from famous poems and plays to classic novels and even another popular 1960s television show. Can you tell which of these titles are really from The Dick Van Dyke Show and which ones we made up?

  1. "All About Eavesdropping"
  2. "Oh How We Met the Night That We Danced"
  3. "Mildew Pierce"
  4. "Long Night’s Journey into Day"
  5. "Pride and Peaches"
  6. "A Farewell to Writing"
  7. "Birth of a Salesman"
  8. "The Man from My Uncle"
  9. "The Pen is Mightier than the Mouth"
  10. "A Midday Nap's Dream"
  11. "Her Guy Monday"
  12. "The Sound of the Trumpets of Conscience Falls Deafly on a Brain That Holds Its Ears…"

Are these real episodes of The Dick Van Dyke Show or did we make them up?

12/12 Too easy! I love some of those imaginative titles! "All About Eavesdropping" with Ritchie's toy intercom with Freddie, used by Rob and Laura to spy (audio) on Jerry and Millie, with the repercussions that eventually developed! "The Man From My UNCLE" was a parody of the fabulous spy drama then very popular on NBC "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." with Robert Vaughn (who once was a guest star on The Dick Van Dyke Show ("it's A Shame She Married Me" aired on Apr. 17, 1963).

The original title of #12 was even longer: "The Sound of the Trumpets of Conscience Falls Deafly on a Brain That Holds Its Ears…or Something Like That!" I believe it was copyrighted under that longer title and is also written that way in the book "The Dick Van Dyke Show: Anatomy of a Classic" by Ginny Weissman and Coyne Steven Sanders.

11/12 The only one I didn't recognize was #12. I should have known it was real just from the ridiculousness of it.
