(CBS, 1965) A one-of-a-kind screen used prop from The Dick Van Dyke Show. This UFO prop was used in the episode "Uhny Uftz" in the show's fifth season. In the episode, Rob (Dick Van Dyke) sees a UFO uttering the strange phrase "Uhny Uftz" during a late night of work, but he is unable to convince others of what he saw. At the end of the episode, it is revealed that the "UFO" was actually just a prototype toy being developed for the holiday season. This prop is that same UFO shown on screen at the climax of the episode. Composed of hand-painted fiberglass, wood, and metal, the prop is hollow and very light-weight, as is needed to spin and hover about the room. Three small holes can be seen on top of the UFO where wire was used to manipulate the prop throughout the room. As was somewhat common for studio props at the time, this same UFO was later repainted and slightly altered, believed to be for additional use in another production. However, below the silver paint are several clear indentations and markings of the original "windows" and accents on the prop, as it originally appeared in the episode. This is a wonderful artifact from The Dick Van Dyke Show, as props from this era of television seldom survived. Measuring 30" in diameter and 18" tall, the prop is in good used condition with worn areas, chips, small breaks or cracks, and general paint wear. An electrical cord was later added to illuminate the top dome, however it no longer lights. Special shipping arrangements may apply, please inquire for details and estimates.
