Season 7: 1978-1979 Edit
- Note: The episodes were not all broadcast in the same order as they were produced. The broadcast order is also the order of episodes in the DVD set. However, syndicated reruns and paid streaming services such as Netflix sometimes follow the production order (e.g.T-401, T-402, T-403....)
- In Season 7 the episodes are fairly self-contained and there are no serious discontinuities watching the episodes in either order. "Hot weather episodes" like "None Like It Hot" and "Cold weather episodes" like "Baby, It's Cold Outside" and "They Call the Wind Korea" occur very close to one another, but the logic doesn't improve by watching them in production order.
- There is a break in broadcast on Christmas Day, 12/25/1978. A repeat of Lil was broadcast.
- The table below can be sorted to display the episodes in Broadcast or Production Order.
