Thanks, man.  Now we know the legal fate of this great series.  The Wikipedia article will be updated accordingly.

I pre-ordered this one and it is about the closest to a blind buy I've ever done for a TV DVD set. I've seen maybe 2-3 episodes at the most of this one. But with this cast, plus Desi making guest appearances and that superb price--could not pass this up!

I just took a quick look at the beginning of episode 1.
The NBC peacock color logo opens the show then a real treat, the brought to you by is intact complete with the actual product.

Only problem is the play all feature is not include.

i can't find this set stocked any where at all retail wise, so I will have to order it online.

Stop the Replacing of original Studio Opening / Closing logos! They are part of film history.

 I just finished the first disc . I have enjoyed it more than i thought i would . I knew i'd like it . But i have liked it much more than i expected . Eve Arden is great . But  my memories of Kay Ballard weren't that great . But they sure have changed . She is a riot . Deborah Walley is adorable . And the guest appearance of Desi Arnez is very funny . And little Desi keeps popping up in the background . Once driving a cart and another time as a drummer .  MPI has done a nice job with this show . 56 episodes on 7 discs and a bonus disc with all kinds of goodies and two Desi pilots that didn't sell . One called Lands End. Very pleased so far .

I'm really enjoying this one a LOT and am limiting myself to one show per week, on Sunday evenings.  Last night I watched "Career Gals" which was one of the best ones yet.  I'm sad the Roger C. Carmel didn't agree to come back for a second season.  He's created a unique character as Roger, whereas Richard Deacon made him into Fred Mertz. At the time, I too didn't appreciate Kaye Ballard's talents because, for me, it was all about Eve Arden, whom I knew from old movies and "Our Miss Brooks."  But now, I see that she is enormously talented and plays off Eve very well.    The material is hit and miss, but the stars' talents shine in every episode.  Their impersonations of "Doris Day" in "Career Gals" are hilarious.

Finally got my copy online...they didn't have it stocked anywhere I looked in the Albuquerque area...It was great to see this show again. It WAS very Lucy-ish...why not??? Desi produced it. That Carol Channing Pilot was interesting..as was a special performance by Eve Arden and Cyd Charisse from 1959, hosted by none other than the late James Mitchell (Palmer Cortlandt of All My Children). I'm very satisfied with the whole package, but wonder why Jerry Fogel was not included in the extras???...he and Kaye Ballard are the only surviving cast members.
