>>I must be thinking of a different episode, but there was one which began and ended on NEW YEARS day. It began in Dec 1950/Jan 1951 and ended the next year.<<

Nope, that was the one...

>>The year was absolutely essential to the plot because they followed the 1951 baseball season ending with "The Giants win the pennant!" in the very last game.<<

Right, I meant what year in relative terms of the show..? The previous, just completed year, or did we witness an entire year go by from that point on.

I didn't consider the year in terms of historical accuracy...
