Yes, I always liked Dick Van Dyke in the other stuff he did, but in that series he both literally and figuratively shrank.
Ah--I have flashed on another that was very nice in it's first iteration--Burke's Law with the sexy and urbane Gene Barry. My mom always watched that one and I was a kid paying attention, just old enough to know that Burke was quite the playboy and to know what that entailed. I think the attempt to bring that one back was a disaster. Like Perry Mason, the sequels never really worked, at least, not for me.
This has been a very nice thread, thanks for starting it, Strick.
It wasn't exactly a mystery, but did you ever see the quirky Peter Seller's movie The World of Henry Orient?
