Reason I believe they will preserve the Blue Mountain here, is because I remember they did so on Best of the West.

1979 jingle instead of the native 1981 one, but yes, the Blue Mtn. was there!

Guess what? According to TV Shows On DVD's Facebook page, Here's Boomer has finally been released (as of March 15) on NTSC Region 1 DVD! Seasons 1 and 2 are both available, but treated as separate releases. Both are $24.99.

Fingers crossed that the 1979, '80 and '81 Paramount Blue Mountains will be intact, as well as the 1979 Christmas special!

The price is brutal. $50 for 4 burned discs equaling about 10 hours of content. I had a heck of a time deciding to purchase it. But nostalgia wins out every time. Uncut at 25:00 per episode, and the picture quality is great. Blue mountain is on there, as is the Christmas special. Almost brought a tear to my eye seeing this again.

Very cool you did some spot checking! Now I know I can buy this!

Which set is the Christmas special on, Bryan?

$50 is a small price to pay for nostalgia. You can't really return to the past. But spending a little time with an old favorite that gives you the warm fuzzies is worth it every time.

The same thing can be said of quite a few of my favorites!

That is certainly true. Watching "Here's Boomer" I had a great feeling of an innocent time of my childhood that I had almost forgotten. And I have to say the original end logo Paramount helps very much in retaining the magic of classic TV.

This would be the exact logo and jingle you found... on both the 1979 Christmas special and the standard season 1 run.

However, if I know right, the December 1980 special that closed out the season would use this one (with the slower version of the jingle) instead...
