Can you tell the difference between dreams and reality on The Dick Van Dyke Show?

Did these things really happen to the characters or are they just in in someone’s mind?

Along with being a hilarious workplace and family sitcom, The Dick Van Dyke Show sprinkled in many instances of absurdity and surreality. Sometimes the wackiness was really happening to the characters and sometimes it was just something they dreamed up.

Can you tell which of these images are from a dream sequence and which ones really happened to the characters on the show?

You got 11 out of 12
Did the right answers spill out or were you lost in a dream?

12/12. A little observation; Gary Marshall and Jerry Bellson gave us an early preview of "Laverne & Shirley" with their final-season-penned episode, "Long Night's Journey Into Day". Laura & Millie. Priceless.

12 out of 12 of course. This is one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE shows. I really wish they had made more than just the 5 years.

12/12 My all-time favorite episode was "It may look like a walnut" and the best line was uttered by Danny Thomas, "What is a Danny Thomas!". This is the best program ever!

12 for 12. Danny Thomas gave me a whole bag of walnuts for not missing a question.
Don't you mean Kolak gave you a whole bag of walnuts?
You are right. But Kojack did give me a bag of lollipops.

12/12 I remembered these very well.
Hi Rosealind,
I recall them too, but I'll be darned if I can remember one episode of The New Dick Van
Dyke Show, where he was married to Hope Lange. Maybe MeTV will run it.

12/12. My all-time favorite sitcom from any decade. Can't beat those fantastic characters, acting, writing, and storylines. Plus, the most gorgeous handsome married couple ever seen on network television. Love those wonderful pics MeTV highlighted! The best was Mary with the two-color hair, and Mary coming out of the closet swimming in the walnuts! You don't see comedy gold as those images, or will ever again! R.I.P. to all main characters on The Dick Van Dyke Show except Dick (now 94; will be 95 on Dec. 14), and Larry Mathews, as 'Ritchie Petrie' (born on Aug. 15, 1955; now 65!).
I left out #4, the only Christmas episode the show did with the great music pieces, and with that great song Mary and Dick sang to each other, but airing in the saddest Christmas year I knew, "The Alan Brady Show Presents" (airing Dec. 18, 1963), less than a month after the Nov. 22 shocking murder of President Kennedy. Mary and Dick were TVs answer to the President and Jacqueline, in looks, talent, and class. No other TV couple were so well matched or had so much chemistry with the one real-life exception of Lucy and Desi, but they were older and Lucy was not as gorgeous as the 24-year-old Mary was in her first year (1961) as Laura. Trviia: the pilot for The Dick Van Dyke Show ("The Sick Boy and the Sitter") was filmed on Friday, Jan. 20, 1961, the same day President Kennedy was inaugurated! How many people know that? It did not air until Oct. 3, but it was filmed on Jan. 20. Look at the Trivia section at the bottom of this reference:
* That Xmas episode was repeated every year. Worst part of it was Richie singing Little Drummer Boy.

12 out of 12. The images remind one, however, of how often they went for the absurd on this show; that's probably why I like it so much.

11/12 Mary Tyler Moore as Laura had a huge & positive influence on me as an adolescent, and I loved The Mary Tyler Moore Show later on.

12/12 - There were 5 episodes on this show with dream sequences, so I knew anything not in 1 of them was "reality".
