Dobie's pop is in the spotlight for a change, on the "Daddy Dearest Sitcom Zone" (Sunday at 8 p.m. on Nickelodeon), which is made up of eight Dobie Gillis episodes that feature the flustered Herbert T. Gillis.
Is it Beverly Hills or Hooterville? Hard to tell. During a charity show on Green Acres (Wednesday at 9 p.m. on Nickelodeon), Lisa Douglas plays Granny, Oliver is Jethro and Mr. Kimball is Jed.
Hardcastle & McCormick (Monday at 3 p.m. on Family) takes a look back at how the judge and the wise guy first met-before they teamed as crime fighters.
George Burns is willing to pay $25,000 for a new act to appear with him in Las Vegas, and Wilbur figures Ed is just the horse for the job, on Mr. Ed (Monday at 5 a.m. on Nickelodeon).
Two private eyes go back to their TV roots: Cannon starts a new run, beginning with the two-part pilot (Monday and Tuesday at 1 p.m. on KCOP). And in the two-part premiere of Magnum, P.I. (Wednesday and Thursday at 4 p.m. on KTLA), Thomas retires from the Navy and goes into the private-eye business.
Robert Englund is a cult member on Soap (Tuesday and Wednesday at 12:30 a.m. on KTLA) and a bad guy on CHiPs (Tuesday at 2 p.m. on KTLA), but that's nothing compared to what he usually plays in the "Nightmare on Elm Street" movies.
Diane has her own nightmare-he's Andy Andy, who tried to strangle her and now haunts her dreams in Cheers (Sunday at 11 p.m. on KTLA).
Ernest T. Bass gets an education of sorts on The Andy Griffith Show (Tuesday at 5:30 a.m. on KTTV).
Spock's meeting with his parents doesn't exactly make for a warm reunion on Star Trek (Tuesday at midnight on KCOP). Jane Wyatt is his earthling mom, Amanda; Mark Lenard is his Vulcan dad, Sarek.
