From the outset, Carl envisioned a show that would be timeless. He wanted it to be fresh to audiences fifty years down the line. It was such a bold, confident vision, and correct. To that end, he made sure the scripts never contained references to the period. In other words, no politics, no slang, no mention of popular TV shows, films, or songs. In their place, he emphasized work, family, friendships, and human nature.

I had to go to Walt [Disney] and talk him into letting me do the old bank president [in Mary Poppins]. I said, I'll do that part and I won't even charge you. So he made me do a little screen test and gave me the part.... And he didn't pay me -- I had to donate $4,000 to his CalArts school. He was a little horse trader.

A while ago ... my brother, Jerry, had a problem with his kidneys and needed a transplant. While he was on the waiting list, I changed my will to say that he could have mine if I happened to die before he received one. I thought that was pretty considerate, big brotherly, and reflective of the type of person I try to be, and so did he. In fact, Jerry called me every single day. What a guy, right? Then, as soon as I answered the phone, he said, "Oh, you're still alive."

--DICK VAN DYKE
