What a great talent. One of the funniest - if not THE funniest - episode of The Dick Van Dyke Show was S05E01 'Coast-to-Coast Big Mouth' - which won a 1966 Emmy for best writing comedy. In the ep, Laura appears on a game show and is tricked by the silver-tongued host into revealing that Alan Brady (Carl Reiner) wears a toupee - and Alan is not happy about that at all. What follows makes for an absolutely brilliant sitcom episode. The ep can still be found on YT.

The Dick Van Dyke Show also won another 3 Emmys that year including one to Carl Reiner as producer of the most outstanding comedy series.

RIP Carl Reiner.
