Mr. Ed. Season One of Gomer Pyle USMC Etc
There have been *lots* of thoughts of doing that. And it has been done with "Bewitched" Season 1.
The technology available to do this -- as has been discussed in some threads on this forum -- is now *miles* better than back in the Ted Turner crayon days: Just look at the CBS prime time "Lucy" and "Dick Van Dyke" specials as proof.
To tell you the truth, I would love to see some of the late 50's Westerns like "Maverick" and "Cheyenne" cleaned-up and colorized. Due to the timeless nature of Westerns a whole new market could open up for those shows in syndication, optical media, and streaming. But I know that I'm very much in the minority on that opinion.
At this time, I'm interested in Mister Ed. Before Alan Young passed away, he stated in an interview that there was talk of filming season 6 Eps in color. But the show was canceled before that occurred
And let's not forget Legend's work on recolorizing a Doctor Who serial that was shot in color, wiped, and survived only in black and white.
I wouldn't be interested in colorized episodes, though if it were the only format available I might buy and then adjust the TV to show b/w. I've done that on Season 4 episodes of The Fugitive, which were actually shot in color. It was better in b/w, but then Fugitive was always a b/w show, even when it was in color.
