  • A teaser for ABC's 1962/3 season new offerings, using the Donna Reed Show cast members as a framing device.

    5.0
    The Stones arrive home from a vacation, supposedly you are supposed to identify with this at this time of year, as summer ends and a new TV season is about to unfold.

    Imetuous Jeff leaps to turn on the (rarely seen) family television as soon as they get through the door. As his parents and sister do some unpacking, the ABC promos for what's new in '62 comes on, and they all start to be engrossed and excited by the offerings. Clips shown are: STONEY BURKE, McHALE'S NAVY, OUR MAN HIGGINS, I'M DICKENS, HE'S FENSTER. No matter how Moronic some of this looks, The Stone family is enthralled, and look forward to seeing all of them. That's it. there's no real plot, and the whole thing seems to be shot very quickly on one dressed set (Donna's stairway-front door-parlour)without close-ups of the actors. It lasts about 15 minutes, implying it might have been shown after the evening ABC network news that night, which was then still 15 minutes also. So, it's not really an episode is it?moreless
