This was such a wonderful show that I'm still mad at the networks for cancelling it.

This was worth buying just for the show with John Denver as guest star!

Van Dyke And Company was the brainchild of Allan Blye and Bob Einstein (Super Dave) for a new NBC comedy/variety show. In the 1970's, comedy/variety shows were very popular with such shows as The Carol Burnett Show, Sonny and Cher, Joey (Heatherton) and Dad and Redd Foxx. Einstein and Blye felt Dick Van Dyke was a perfect fit for a comedy/variety show to highlight his many talents and those of the many guest stars that would be showcased.

A one hour pilot was made and televised on September 20th, 1976, Monday night on NBC. The show included regulars Andy Kaufman, Pat Proft, Marilyn Sokol and the Los Angeles Mime Company to star with Dick Van Dyke in the many humorous sketches. The first guests on this pilot were Chevy Chase and Flip Wilson.

The show won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy/Variety Series and a Peoples Choice Award for Favorite Male Performer In A New TV Program for Van Dyke. The show was a big hit, but unbelievably canceled after only 3 months. This show featured for the first time ever Super Dave Osbourne and had a regular sketch called The Bright Family, who were not the brightest family in America. There were only two complaints about the show- the theme music and The Los Angeles Mime Company- which the audiences said were both too dull against the high energy Van Dyke.

Sadly, even with fabulous guest stars such as Carol Burnett, Lucille Ball, Sid Caesar, Mary Tyler Moore, Freddie Prinze, Tom Smothers, Harvey Korman, Lola Falana, Carl Reiner, Hal Linden, John Denver, Flip Wilson, Chevy Chase and more, the one hour show was canceled after only 11 episodes. There were great musical guests as well, such as The Spinners, The Sylvers, Sha Na Na, Bobbie Gentry, K.C. and The Sunshine Band and many more.

This series of 12 hour-long comedy-music-variety series (which includes the pilot special with guests Mary Tyler Moore, Carl Reiner and Ike & Tina Turner) brought out the many talents of the wonderful Dick Van Dyke.

There are comedy sketches with Dick, Carol Burnett, Lucille Ball and other greats plus musical numbers by John Denver, KC & The Sunshine Band and many more favorites. One of the shows is a Christmas program, which is an extra treat.

It's terrific to see these rare shows appear after being buried for over 35 years and a nice "sequel" to repeated viewings of
the classic "Dick Van Dyke Show" sitcom from the '60s.

Like any variety series, this show has it's share of clunker moments. Usually it's the filler dance sequences. One especially head-scratching bit features Dick and Freddie Prinze as disco-dancing magicians? But again, you get clunker segments in any variety series - SNL, Carol Burnett, whatever. You can always fast forward.

Overall the show is very entertaining, charming and funny. The Christmas episode is good enough to be re-run as an annual special.

And if you're an Andy Kaufman fan, then this is pretty much a "must-have" as he gets several opportunities to shine, do his best bits.

It's a shame the series didn't get at least full season's run. As others have pointed out, it won the Emmy for best Comedy-Variety series that year.

It's late 1976 as I sat mesmerized at this new variety show, hoping it would last for years. Flash forward to early 2014 as I hold in my hands a DVD of Van Dyke & Company. At last I can relive this wonderful series, still wondering why it was cancelled after 11 weeks (12 if you include the pilot). I consider Dick Van Dyke a comic genius, and this is a wonderful showcase for his talents as a mime, singer, harpsicord player, slapstick artist, and story teller (not having watched all 12 episodes yet, I don't know if he displays his dancing). The other singers and comics in this series are also a joy to watch.

I wasn't sure what to expect when I ordered this. After all, it was a variety show, and it only lasted half a season! I wasn't around then, but weren't variety shows like the scourge of the 70s or something? Everyone had one. Kind of like reality TV today. (OK, nothing can compare to THAT horror!)

I was pleasantly surprised at how funny this was. I am ashamed at being surprised, because I am the biggest Dick Van Dyke fan ever (I know, a lot of people say that) and I love everything he does. The sketches were funny, the musical numbers - hmm, OK, his pantomiming skills were amazing as always, and the guest stars were a lot of fun. Mary Tyler Moore in the first episode was a little disappointing. I expected her to appear for more than 5 minutes! Especially since I had seen the clip before (I think it was a special feature on a "Dick Van Dyke Show" DVD). I assumed it was just a piece of a longer sketch. Andy Kaufman irritated me at first, but he grew on me after a bit. I particularly enjoyed watching Dick Van Dyke with Lucille Ball. For all the older actors I love, I almost never get to see them perform together! Kudos to MPI for thinking ahead and not including Dick Van Dyke's "Let's Talk to Lucy" episodes in Lucy's own DVDs. This way we got extra stuff!! And nice of them to add his first name to the title, so we over-organized people can put it next to "The Dick Van Dyke Show" on our alphabetized shelves...

Not as good as "The Dick Van Dyke Show" obviously, or even "Diagnosis Murder," for that matter. I should probably give it 4 stars for comparison reasons, but I am giving it 5 stars because it is Dick Van Dyke and he is awesome!!!
