The Slice

Reasons these shows were not set here

"Lucy": Shortage of nightclubs featuring Cuban music.

"Andy Griffith Show": Citizens here would not have tolerated Andy not carrying a gun.

"Beverly Hillbillies": Shortage of swimming pools, movie stars.

"Bewitched": Viewers would have wondered why Spokane is being portrayed as the center of the advertising industry.

"Dick Van Dyke Show": Backside-cupping Capri pants were illegal here at that time. 

"Green Acres": Spokane is too urban.

"Hogan's Heroes": Too far from the Russian front.

"That Girl": There has never been anyone named Donald living here.

"Ozzie & Harriet": The Nelson family owned zero winter apparel.

"Donna Reed Show": It wouldn't have been as effective to have members of the Los Angeles Dodgers appearing on the show if Donna had to keep asking them why they had been sent down to the minors.
