WandaVision is full of references and jokes that will soar over the heads of young comics readers and MCU fans. But the adults watching will know what's what — especially if they grew up glued to their TV sets. Here are a few things only adults likely noticed in WandaVision.
The Dick Van Dyke Show is one of the most influential sitcoms of all time, but kids today likely don't know much about it, considering it debuted way back in 1961. Comedy writer Rob and his wife Laura, played by TV legends Dick Van Dyke and Mary Tyler Moore, have a chemistry similar to that of Wanda and Vision's, especially in the Disney+ hit's first two episodes. The living room and entryway of WandaVision's black-and-white suburban house is even laid out the same as Rob and Laura's, with the kitchen on the far right, and the front door on the far left.
There's one obvious Dick Van Dyke Show allusion in WandaVision that younger viewers likely missed: In the faux-sitcom's opening credits sequence, Vision carries Wanda over the threshold and nearly trips on a poorly placed chair. Instead, he glides right through it, because as a synthezoid, that's something that he can do. On The Dick Van Dyke Show, Rob typically fell over an ottoman as he entered the house each week, but sometimes he dodged it.
By Episode 2 of WandaVision, we're firmly in the 1960s, and the connection to The Dick Van Dyke Show is even more clear. Wanda has dropped her demure dress, apron, and heels in favor of sleek black capri pants and more comfortable shoes. Add her stylish flip hairdo into the mix, and she looks just like Mary Tyler Moore as Laura.
