Dick Van Dyke Show

“The Dick Van Dyke Show” aired from 1961 to 1966. While the show has been off the air for over 50 years, it’s still funny to watch it today. The classic clips have stood the test of time.

All About Eavesdropping” was the 2nd season’s final episode. It’s considered to be one of the best ones of the entire series. Little Richie and his friend installed an intercom between the Helpers home next door and the Petries. Laura and Rob heard the Helpers complain about them.

The Petries hear Jerry and Millie Helper call them snobs “with a compulsive drive to be the best.” This obviously bothers Laura and Rob greatly as they were about to go to a dinner party at the Helpers. Ultimately, they decided to still go because they didn’t want to bail on Sally and Buddy.

This episode is loaded with passive aggressive behavior caused by eavesdropping. It all culminates when everyone gathers together to play a game.
