Here in R2  there have been a few Rin Tin Tin DVDs released.  These episodes are actually in colour rather than monochrome.

The region  2 RTT's DVD'S are best avoided. The colourisation is so so, but all the music has been changed & the episodes are heavily edited versions.


2 seasons of the  High Chaparral available in Germany with dual soundtrack. Very nice quality.


I think some Lassie also.

Thanks for the R2 info, Chris.  I've almost bitten on those Rin Tin Tin sets in the past, so this is good to know.  I'd go for some Lassie dvds, but only if they were season sets.

Since I didn't see any specific rules (are we talking shows with no releases at all or can we include shows that have only had "best of" releases, but not season set releases?) this is my list:


1) Ozzie and Harriet

2) Lassie

3) Navy Log

4) Rin Tin Tin

5) The Millionaire

6) Our Miss Brooks

7) Fireside Theatre

8) Noah's Ark

9) Doctor Christian

10) Circus Boy

Choices should be shows without any significant release at all, not even "best of" collections.


See you at the pah-ty, Richter.

It's hard to choose just 10. This was a great decade for Television!


The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet
The Millionaire
Death Valley Days
Hawaiian Eye
Johnny Ringo
The Jack Benny Program
Your Show of Shows
The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show
General Electric Theater
77 Sunset Strip

Although there are several episodes available on PD releases of Mr & Mrs North, I sure would like to see an official, restored release of the ENTIRE series.

Bob,  Just an fyi on Sky King,  It's available, an official release but it wasn't released as an online/store wide release and it's expensive ($249 for the series).  According to the site page, the prints are remastered though.  There are a few members here that have this set and perhaps they will give their input on the set.  The link is here  .


Good list above.  My list of 50's shows is small, but here's a few:


Lassie, especially the "Timmy" years as those are the ones that I watched as a kid.  I'd want the "Jeff" years as well.
77 Sunset Strip   Would be a virtual blind buy but I might pick this one up if available

Death Valley Days   Haven't seen those since Dad watched that show.  Didn't realize that this show was that long-running.

Lone Ranger  (S1 was in 1949) Completed series, especially the Clayon Moore seasons

William,  just an fyi, you may know about it but Fury is available at Amazon Germany, official release with English language audio.  Link is here .

I've not bought that set yet, waiting to see if perhaps Shout might pick this one up for an R1 release.  Current exchange rate price isn't bad for a 5-season set: 76.98 EURO = $105.58 US  (less shipping).   Works out to a little over $25/season but doesn't include shipping in that price.  This one's another one that I've almost bought a few times.  The German audio track "Defaults" on this set's menu, at least on my Pioneer Std DVD player but it's easy to swich to the English track.  Transfer Q looks good for the age of the series (1955-1960).

Fury S1 is also available in the UK from Network. Prints are better than the German release but some segments have the long original opening whilst others have a shorter version.

Thanks for the info.  I haven't checked the Network site in a long time,  I wish the complete series was available there as it is at Amazon Germany,

 A couple of years ago I $plurged on the Sky King Box Set. I am quite satisfied with the set, except for its lofty price, but what the heck, every now and then you just have to live a little.Posted Image


The Set comes with a Booklet that contains an Episode Guide, some Trivia about the Series, a Bio on its Stars and info on what happened to the Planes featured on the show. The set also has a Bonus Disk with four Episodes of Amos and Andy on it.


If you don't mind forkin over some dough then go ahead and get the set. Just remember, it will cost ya! Posted Image
