    Rowan & Martin's Laugh In- I don't notice any problems with the video and the shows are complete/uncut so I'm fine with these DVD's from Time Life.

    The flipper discs that I have, I'm careful to handle them on the edges and center hole only so none of them have finger prints or smudges on the playing surface.

    Probably said earlier, but any release that does not have the proper, authentic studio logos of the time of the show (like many CBS releases having a newer CBS-Paramount/CBSTD logo, instead of the Paramount logos of the times).

    Truthfully , I feel the same way . I'd love to be able to see Gale Gordon's The Brothers , Bringing Up Buddy, Boots and Saddles, Father Of The Bride ,and dozens of others that will likely never see "the light of a TV screen" again.

    The Odd Couple tops the list for what needs to be redone. Annoyed as I am by shows that are presented syndicated cuts like "Barnaby Jones" I can live with that for the most part. But the butchery that was done to "Odd Couple" robbed us so of so much memorable *comedy* that was integral to the show, with Pernell Roberts' out-of-the-blue rendition of "Cocktails For Two" topping the list for me. I literally can't watch any of the episodes that are missing bits I know by heart.

    Never going to happen because apparently it's legally forbidden to ever air the episode or show it again as part of the settlement stemming from the lawsuit that episode generated.

    I imagine many of us feel the same way, but in all fairness to the thread creator the topic was "DVD Sets You'd Like to See Redone". That's a different animal. If given my choice, sure the answer is give me things that have never been released at all versus redoing a series that has already been issued on physical media. No question about that. But as I said, the thread was about shows that could use a re-release, so some of us played along.

    Gary "give me first time Ozzie & Harriet season set(s) over a redone HGWT S1-3 if I can only choose one option" O.

    I thought of another one, Shout Factory would need to re-issue season 1 of Father Knows Best to include every episode uncut. Shout made the correction with Mister Ed and re-issued season 1 with all uncut episodes, but as far as I know this hasn't been done with Father Knows Best.

    Did the Original release of Father knows best only have syndication edits? Or, were there Music right issues?

    I found this about all the DVD sets. Season 1 isn't completely uncut.

    Yes, a completely remastered and uncut set on DVD & Blu-ray with tons of special feature tributes to Valarie Harper.

    As far as I know, music rights issues wasn't the problem. Edited/syndicated versions of several episodes somehow ended up on the season 1 DVD's. The set is about an even split of complete episodes and edited ones.

    I agree! So in fairness here goes :
    #1) All of the "flipper " sets should be re-issued ( how about Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea, Season 2 of Rocky And Bullwinkle , Land of the Giants ),
    #2) Any series with music removed should be reissued ( My Three Sons season 1 and 2, Odd Couple ),
    #3) Any series issued using syndicated prints (Like Joey Bishop, Real McCoys ) should also be re-released using complete original broadcast prints .
    I would buy any of these , and as a matter of fact , I'm gradually re buying the two sided single sided as they are reissued . (Just got Adam 12 Season 1)
    Meanwhile, I'm ALWAYS interested in buying any vintage shows being released for the first time.
    Last but not least , someone please give us the complete mega-box of unedited seasons of Ozzie And Harriet , (no syndicated prints , Rickey's songs, and properly mastered ) . We can dream ….

    Big "A-M-E-N" to all of that, Lou. These companies would make me a pauper if they'd re-release vintage shows uncut, unedited, remastered, and on single--sided discs AS WELL AS never-before released vintage series. I'm in for all of it.

    To #2 I'd add Gomer Pyle and Happy Days, among others

    To #3 I'd add Father Knows Best S1, among others.


    Gary "as it is right now these companies are getting very, very, very little of my cash" O.

    Especially Happy Days-- the latter five gos of that 1974-84 ABC comedy were generally viewed quite derisively for various reasons, but as with any show, they do have fans who have enjoyed the whole show notwithstanding the reviews, so the rest of that show deserves to be out.

    Sanford and Son. This show deserves a full-on new transfer with no syndicated episodes. And I would love to see, just once at least, the full end credits film play out to the end (where the theme gets wild and funky.. It is usually cut short by the new syndication dates billboard tacked to the end of most season 2-6 eps) and Fred and Lamont continue to load the truck and annoy each other. This aired a time or two during the original run.

    Bob Newhart Show - This never looked "new" when it was new, but Ideally the original negatives would be restored. I'm led to believe that the last two seasons are/were in miserable shape in the vaults.

    Newhart - Needs work. Shout, erm, tried, I guess you could say, to present these as complete as possible, but it needs restoration from the ground-up. Mostly film edited on video so I guess it would be an expensive effort a-la Seinfeld, if attempted. Not likely, I know.

    I Dream of Jeannie and Bewitched, with correct themes for all seasons (no more of that darned IDoJ theme with the splice in the audio when the title pops up! Spoils the tempo. Listen for it.), and in proper b&w and color where appropriate. Also, preferably, uncut/not tampered with and no "wobbly" sounding episodes, where the audio flutters throughout (can't remember which ones but both shows had episodes affected.

    Cheers uncut.

    The Rifleman could look better.

    The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin - we need this without the pc cuts, without the filmized look, and with all of Reggie's "toothbrush" speech stuff intact, dropouts and all.

    Coach unedited, please and thank you!

    Gomer Pyle for obvious musical reasons.

    And many mo-o-o-o-o-ore!
