NYT with an interesting piece today on a key moment in TV history--you may find this hard to believe--which simply involved an alleged mix-up of babies on the popular Dick Van Dyke show. I probably watched it at the time. It featured a good gag--Dick and wife Mary Tyler Moore think they may have come home from the hospital with the wrong baby, but when the possible other couple shows up at their door, they are....black. You'll need to read the story to make sense of this probably. But here's the clip below--the other couple arrive just after the six minute mark.
