This is discouraging news, to have the release pulled so quickly after its announcement. Of course it was too good to be true.

I'm still waiting for Sony to put Bridget Loves Bernie back on the schedule. How long ago did they cancel that one?

I wonder if the delay has anything to do with rights of any sort.
I do remember that the closing credits for the first four seasons (1960-1964) were superimposed over pictures of the new Chevrolets for that specific year.

Most shows from that time period had sponsor logos somewhere on the closing credits. When shows were prepped for syndication, a new credit package was done removing the sponsors. Since the first 5 seasons of My Three Sons were never put into syndication, this was never done. So when the show was sold to Nick at Nite, they never bothered to re-do the credits.

Highly unlikely that this would be the cause of a delay however.

With great sadness I went back and re-edited my signature to indicate that MY THREE SONS is still a complete no show on dvd. Hated doing that just now.

A tear formed in my eye when I visited TVShowsonDVD.com a few minutes ago and looked at the latest news item for "The Invaders" and noticed at the bottom of the page Dave had placed a picture of a trade ad in VIDEO BUSINESS showing several different CBS/Paramount titles that have been "put up on a pedestal", as the ad says. One of the dvds in the ad is none other than the "My Three Sons" release that has been postponed/pulled from the schedule. I was so looking forward to this one. Sigh...

I think that's a sign that you're going to see it rescheduled soon. I could be wrong but if it was pulled from the schedule 2 months ago then they would have had plenty of time to change that ad if they didn't intend to release it at all.

Gary,

Travis is right, I think, from reading Dave's post mentioning MTS over on the Invaders thread...

Ah, thanks Jeff (and Travis and Dave). I hadn't read "The Invaders" thread yet so I missed that mention. Hope it's on the way back to the schedule soon!

what interesting is that none of the DVD sets in that ad are half seasons - a few special editions, but nothing halved. So perhaps they will go for the whole season on My Three Sons season 1.

I hope you're right. I copied the picture into MS Publisher and enlarged it. It looks like the notation for season one volume one is still in the same spot as the high-resolution cover that Gord/Dave posted though.

I wonder if these are the shows that are doing exceptionally well for CBS or ones that they have high hopes for which is why they're promoting them. Interesting that Gunsmoke, a CBS staple for 2 decades wasn't included. Neither was Streets of SF, Untouchables, Diagnosis Murder or even the Fugitive.

Hopefully this delay in releasing My Three Sons is because CBS/Paramount has seen the light and decided to issue this as a full season set. Hopefully they start doing the same with Gunsmoke. Split seasons for half hour shows are unacceptable, especially when said shows have runs of 10 years or more.

While I was excited to hear the release is back on, I'm not at the $42.99 SRP!!

Yeah I agree the SRP on this is much too high for a half season set.
But I will dive in on this one hopefully Amazon will have it for just under $30,00. My Three Sons has been in my top five unreleased shows for a long time.I will be buying all of the releases that Paramount gives us.
This is really the only true way of seeing these episodes again.I can't wait to see the black and white episodes again with bub.

How come I am the first one to notice this?!

Anyway I always liked the William Frawley (aka Fred Mertz on the I LOVE LUCY tv series) seasons the best and I hope this particular DVD collection maintains enough momentum to see at least all of Mr. Frawley's episodes make in onto DVD.

Why didn't they include the whole family on the front of the packaging design as well.

Lately with Paramount Pictures-CBS Television Home Entertainment the back of the packaging design looks better the front.

The way the above provided image translated on this message post you need a good magnifying glass to properly see it. Sheesh!

One of these things just doesn't belong here:

1. DVD box: "Some episodes may be edited from their original network versions"

2. DVD box: "Music has been changed for this home entertainment version"

3. Paramount ad: "We don't just put TV on DVD ... we put it on a pedestal"

The Paramount ad contains a photo of the "My Three Sons" DVD set. I guess the pedestal got buried in the dirt.

Any idea why someone has posted this on Amazon (as part of a review on the Fugitive DVD) ?

"I really liked My Three Sons and now it looks like they are finally going to release it but with all its music changed."

Since all the music on the Fugitive Season 2 Vol. 1 was changed, someone probably thinks CBS will do this with all their future releases. I don't think this means anything at this point. You would think since CBS is charging $43 MSRP for a half season of a 30 minute show they could afford to clear all the music.

Definately looks like they are cheaping out to maximize profits on older titles. Really why is there a need to split these shows? Sony releases full 30 episode seasons of I dream of Jeannie for $27. I'm no fan of sony but it really seems like Paramount is Gouging here especially as these shows are altered versions. I'm close to denying Paramount my future purchases and will spend the money elsewhere.
