Throughout his television career, Van Dyke gravitated towards projects that would go on to be short-lived, turning down a starring role in "Gilligan's Island" to work on "My Mother the vehicle", which has been regarded as one of the worst television shows of the era. He was also a regular performer on The Judy Garland Show before going on to star as Dave Crabtree in the short-lived My Mother the auto, which ran from 1965-1966. Van Dyke earned four consecutive Emmy nominations thanks to his comedy chops on the series. He also played in Las Vegas, at Playboy Clubs, and on cruise ships in a stage show in the 60s.
