Welcome to a new Wildcard Wednesday! This week, I’m continuing our celebration of this blog’s tenth anniversary by — just as I did with Musical Theatre Monday — diving back into the archives to re-share goodies that were previously offered over the past decade. Some of these sitcom gems you may have missed — and some may have eluded you because they were prizes in our annual contests. But I’m sure there’s something in this pot of gold that you’ll treasure!
This is what I’m offering (in full — it’s a buffet, not a menu) to subscribers who comment below to alert me of their private, non-commercial interest, in honor of my ten wonderful years of joyful sitcom study here with you on That’s Entertainment!
- A copy of The Danny Kaye Show With Lucille Ball (1962)
- The complete first season of The New Dick Van Dyke Show (1971-1972)
- Five unedited episodes from the first season of Rhoda (1974-1975)
- The complete first season of The Tony Randall Show (1976-1977)
- The 1980 retrospective clip show of Soap, featuring Bea Arthur
- The ten episode prize from our 2020 Quarantine Quiz, listed here
This is a scene from the 1980 Soap clip show with Bea Arthur — an excerpt of these treats that I’m thrilled to share again, as thanks for your ten years of readership and support!
Come back next week for another Wildcard! And stay tuned Tuesday for more Becker!
