Take 5: Do you still love them from '64?

'Mad Men" returns for its fourth season Sunday (AMC at 10 p.m.) and the action has been moved up to the fall of 1964. And that puts us in mind of one of the most memorable years in TV history. How so? Take a look at these five shows, all of which debuted that fall (maybe we'll even see Don Draper watching one of them):


'The Addams Family' (ABC, Fridays at 8:30 p.m.) - John Astin and Carolyn Jones brought Charles Addams' cartoon characters to life in this brilliant sitcom about a "creepy and kooky" crew.


'Bewitched' (ABC, Thursdays at 9 p.m.) - Beautiful suburban witch (Elizabeth Montgomery, right) twitched her nose and funny things happened. Her hubby, Darrin (Dick York), worked at a Madison Avenue ad agency that bore little resemblance to "Mad Men."


'Gilligan's Island' (CBS, Saturdays at 8:30 p.m.) - The seven castaways of the S.S. Minnow were shipwrecked on an uncharted desert isle, where they would defy logic for the next three seasons.


'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.' (NBC, Tuesdays at 8:30 p.m.) - The first James Bond TV knockoff: Secret agents Napoleon Solo (Robert Vaughn) and Illya Kuryakin (David McCallum) traveled around the globe to thwart the schemes of the evil THRUSH.


'The Munsters' (CBS, Thursdays at 7:30 p.m.) - TV's other monster family, led by Herman, the Frankensteinish paterfamilias, played by Fred Gwynne of "Car 54, Where Are You?"
