Subject: RE: Andy Griffith Show
RE: Greg Morris

An early Dick Van Dyke show had a lot of trouble being approved by the network brass. In this show, a flashback, Dick is convinced that their infant Richie was switched for another baby at the hospital and he calls the other couple to come over to their home. The "punch line" for the show was that when the couple showed up they were black. The man was played by Greg Morris. Even this was a hard sell to the brass though.
