    If this is a success I wonder if other Ivan Tors series i.e. Flipper season 3 and Cowboy in Africa might make it onto DVD?

    Why did they go to Mod on Season 2 for Flipper?

    Just a reminder that this one is being released tomorrow. This was one of my all-time favorites that I haven't seen since the 1970s. Can't wait to see it again!

    Can anyone comment on if the episodes are uncut and remastered?

    It looks like they're from video masters instead of film - the quality is surprisingly poor, IMO. The episodes are just over 25 minutes, but I've only watched the first few so far.

    That sucks, but it's not surprising given that there probably isn't a lot of demand for this show. The video quality on Flipper Season 1 was so good that I was hoping for the same here. My order is on the way and I should have it by Friday. Still looking forward to re-visiting this childhood favorite.

    I would have thought great as well since Flipper was. :(

    I'll buy this to encourage more releases like this. Plus, haven't seen Ben since I was so darn small. OH! And I'm much more afraid of bears now than I was then.

    I don't think I've ever watched it BUT I love most shows of that era and I love (as do my kids) anything animal/nature related (I had them hooked on Grizzly Adams) so I imagine I'll pick it up. I'll probably wait until I can find it a bit cheaper on Amazon used, however.

    I watched the first episode last night and the video quality isn't that bad, in fact in looks pretty decent for not being remastered (not nearly as good as Flipper season 1, but those prints were exceptional). What a nostalgia trip! I haven't seen this show since I was a little kid in the early 1970s, but as soon as I saw Clint Howard and Ben with the chain around his neck, I was instantly taken back to that time. I totally forgot that Rance Howard was also in this show. Great fun.
