Editorial Reviews

Complete 2nd season of 30 episodes in 4 DVD package. Never on DVD before. Many critics and comedians believe that CAR 54 WHERE ARE YOU? is one of the best comedy series ever to appear on television. Leonard Maltin calls it one of the funniest TV shows of all time. Long out of circulation, this brilliant show can now be discovered by new generations who will have a chance to view it for the first time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Packaging still stinks, but....... April 25, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
.......you can't beat this great show. Car 54 Where Are You just HAS to be one of the best written, acted and produced comedies in sitcom history. It is terrific television, screamingly funny, and the episodes in Season Two are the carry-over from Season One. Nat Hiken was a comedic genius.

Bad news is: the packaging STILL stinks. As I received and unwrapped mine today, Disc One was loose, and the cheap cardboard packaging is not worthy of this great show. HOWEVER, Shanachie FINALLY got it right as each disc in this set contains the correct episodic order of the shows. HOORAY!!(See my other review for Season One,as I had to literally print out the order that one of the reviewers here was kind enough to list, and I have it attached to the Season One package).

Most of the reviews have covered the shows, so I won't go into detail, but, this season has lots of guest stars, i.e., Shari Lewis (remember Lamb Chop?) Sugar Ray Robinson and even Mitch Miller!! Plus, F-Troop's loveable Corporal Agarn, Larry Storch, is great as Charlie the Drunk, and Molly Picon, a marvelous actress who guested in an episode in Season One, is back as Mrs. Bronson. "Hail to the Chief", the first episode, is terrific in that, those of us who remember the Kennedy Presidency get a treat to see JFK and Jackie at the end. However, the shot was taken before he became President, just after he won the Democratic nomination and they were given a ticker-tape parade in downtown Manhattan. (Jackie was pregnant with JFK Jr. here) Terrific nostalgia, nonetheless.

I still crack up just looking at Toody's (Joe E. Ross) face. Also included in the Season Two set is a Bonus of Joe E. Ross and his stand-up comedy come back audition film.

I was 7 when this classic comedy debuted. Because of its night (school tomorrow!) and starting time (go to bed!!), I never got a chance to see it in first run.
.

CAR 54, WHERE ARE YOU? ran for two seasons, Sunday 8:30 to 9 pm on NBC-TV. Filming was on location and at the pioneer BIOGRAPH studio, a Bronx fixture since 1913. The TV drama NAKED CITY was a Biograph production, as were BUTTERFIELD 8 (1960), ODDS AGAINST TOMORROW (1959) and PRETTY BOY FLOYD (1960). The shuttered studio was destroyed by a 1980 fire and renovated as an apartment complex.

.
Created by Nat Hiken (of "Sgt. Bilko" fame), "Car 54" was one of the first integrated shows on TV. Set in a fictional precinct (the 53rd), its main characters are a Mutt & Jeff team of uniformed cops. Diminutive Officer Toody is brash, pushy and a bit slow on the uptake; he has a domineering wife. Officer Muldoon is very tall, introverted and somewhat brighter than his partner; he lives with his mom.

Season Two had a female officer (Lisa Loughlin) for one episode. Another part-timer, Mickey Deems, was originally a drummer and arranger. He appeared in an off-Broadway musical with Hal Linden ("Anything Goes") and as half of a slapstick comedy team in over 200 "Mack & Myer" one-reelers. Linden (aka BARNEY MILLER) is also here, as an asst. DA.

Notable guests:
Kenny Delmar was Fred Allen's announcer and Sen. Claghorn on radio's "Allen's Alley.

ME TV in Chicago has run the 2nd season recently and they are all great episodes...especially the JFK episode that was pulled from syndication. I wish Beatrice Pons was in more of the 2nd season though. The first season set had two surprise episodes with the sponsor billboards and I am hoping that several do in this set. Makes it that much better to watch! Looking forward to seeing JOE E. ROSS' standup footage! One of the greatest series in history (Nothing on modern televsion comes close)!

5.0 out of 5 stars Do manufacturers EVER LISTEN to their customers? April 26, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Excitedly, I checked my mail yesterday(4/25) to find season 2 of CAR 54 had arrived. That excitement went south when opened it to find the same LOUSY!! packaging as the 1st set. After a careful and protracted attempt to remove the cds, I found Disc 1 was scratched. Luckily after contacting AMAZON they immediately sent a replacement set which (hopefully ) will arrive today. Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Shanachie receive a truckload of complaints on the first set's packaging? Not one person in the Marketplace LIKED the concept, and several reported damaging the contents when trying to remove the DVDS. I don't get it!! Well, s.o.s. Hope I can piece together a unflawed set from the 2 I'll have, before I return the first one. I know the content is 5 stars, but the packaging is a definite zero.

After months of waiting, I am so delighted we finally received our order of Car 54, the Complete Second Season on DVD. For those of you who loathed the packaging of Season 1, prepare to buy more DVD slipcases, because these are packaged the same way...but that is the only flaw on the previous Season carried over.

While I haven't yet done an episode by episode check, this season seems to be fixed up in the chronological air date order that Season 1 didn't follow. However, the menus on the individual discs are numbered 1 through 8, etc instead of carrying the episode numbers (which isn't a big deal).

This season has featured the commercial bumps on the three episodes we checked out today and they have included Camay, Prell, Tide, and a foam hair dye (Lilt I think).

We watched Toody Undercover (featuring Bruce Gordon - Frank Nitty on The Untouchables and Ralph's bully "Harvey" from the Classic 39 season of the Honeymooners), The White Elephant (with the Hasty Tasty Luncheonette) and flipped through to the end of "Hail to the Chief" to see if Kennedy or Johnson was featured as the President.

Kennedy is the president here and is shown in close-ups with Jackie riding in a open automobile through the streets and sitting in it in a crowd...it isn't the far away shot of Johnson waving from a distance that was later played in syndication after Kennedy's assassination would have made this episode feel a bit too uncomfortable.

Also, the episodes we watched all had extended scenes or scenes previously cut to make time for additional commercials on TV in later years. We had been watching Car 54 on discs pulled from the TV and, potentially, old VHS tapes, so this was a lot of fun for us.
