Yes, also Wild,Wild West was black&white in 1965 season one and then went to colour for it's second season 1966 too.
Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea was black&white in 1964 season one and then went to colour for it's second season 1965 (a year earlier than the others).

That's right. Many shows began in Black and White and switched to color ASAP. There were color sets to be sold, after all. Thankfully, Irwin Allen did film those FX shots in color and Gerry filmed many of his shows in color long before color TV was commonplace. Too bad Fireball XL5 and Supercar were not in that mix.
The cry "In Color" was so much a part of those years. We heard it a lot on shows, and watched those words at the bottom of the screen...in black and white! Dad did not want to pay money for a TV set, other than the big clunker we had for so many years with the huge wooden cabinet. So my brother began repairing sets others threw out, and by 1973 we joined everyone else. The last show to use the "In Color" advert? "Police Squad!" in the mid 1980's, but obviously as a joke.
