Just watched a Japanese dvd of SUGARFOOT, the classic Warners western that ran from 1957-1961 in rotation with CHEYENNE and BRONCO. The dvd only featured one episode, "The Return of the Canary Kid," with star Will Hutchins playing dual roles as Tom "Sugarfoot" Brewster and his roguish twin the Canary Kid. I had never seen this show before (never ran in syndication when I was growing up in the 70s) but was very impressed by the smart writing, engaging supporting cast, the overall tone of high good humor and Hutchins' boyish appeal. I know there's been a fair amount of comment as to why Warners' TV-on-dvd division is such a poor cousin to its classic film output. And I know guys in the know like Gord Lacey have stated time and again the reluctance of studios in general to relaease vintage b & w TV product (unless it's a TV Land staple like I LOVE LUCY). Doesn't mean it ain't a shame. I'm not convinced that there aren't a lot of boomers who remember shows like SUGARFOOT fondly and would be willing to part with some of their hard-earned cash to have them on disc. Hell, I'm not even a boomer and I'd buy a season set in a heartbeat (even in the dreaded split volumes per single season which have become increasingly common of late.) But, alas, the studios don't seem to care. I picked up the CHEYENNE season 1 set, and now it seems that further sets are not likely to be coming. The studio is making some vague noises about MAVERICK, which may very well not come to fruition. If Warner's is hemming and hawing over such a famous title as MAVERICK, then what chance do lesser known shows like SUGARFOOT, BRONCO, COLT .45, LAWMAN, etc. have? You'd think at least they could put out some compilation featuring 2nd season CHEYENNEs mixed in with some BRONCO and SUGARFOOT eps, much as they used to run back in the late 50s. Or at least license these shows out to smaller outfits like Critics Choice. Don't really know where I'm going with this. Sorry for the rant. Just chaps my hide, is all. What do you classic TV buffs think?
