[show]According to Morey Amsterdam, the show was scheduled to return for the 1966-1967 season and was going to be seen in color for the first time. However, the plan was scrapped when Dick Van Dyke decided he had enough. This contradicts Carl Reiner, who is on record as saying the decision to end the series was his alone. In any event, Reiner made it clear that he would not be returning as producer after the fifth season, and the consensus opinion was that it would have been impossible to do the show without him. Apparently, what Morey Amsterdam was speaking of was The New Dick Van Dyke Show.
- Frank Adamo, who appeared in numerous episodes as a waiter, delivery man, walk-on, or just a face in the crowd, was always uncredited and Dick Van Dyke's personal assistant and stand-in.
- Rose Marie wanted to leave the show, when she became a widow as her husband, Bobby Guy, died. Director John Rich talked her out of quitting and she stayed until the series' end.
