1. Dinner For Mom -- Toby and Billy take Doris out to dinner for her birthday, insisting they pay the bill with money they have earned.Read more ›
"The Doris Day Show" was conceived without Miss Day's knowledge by her late husband Martin Melcher. Until his passing in the spring of 1968, she had no idea she had been signed to star in this sitcom. Production commenced in the early summer of 1968 and despite her personal trauma as a result of her husband's passing after 17 years of marriage and some of the revelations about him that she was discovering, Doris plunged into this new venture with her characteristic pluck and determination.
Still a considerable superstar in films, Miss Day had two hits playing in theatres in the summer of 1968. "Where Were You When the Lights Went Out?" was breaking all-time records at New York's Radio City Music Hall and "With Six You get Eggroll" released in August of 1968 was packing theatres nationwide and would eventually turn out to be one of the 12 top moneymaking films of Miss Day's 39 film career.
"The Doris Day Show" debuted on CBS in September, 1968 to great ratings but indifference and in some cases outright nastiness from some critics.
While hardly the greatest project of Miss Day's career, it is a warm, sweet, buccolic, nicely cast comedy about a recently widowed mom of two, living on a farm in California with her sons, her dad, a handyman, housekeeper and a large dog.
The plotlines are set around the always real occurrences of their lives.Read more ›
I am thankful that this is finally getting released on DVD. Although season one is not the best year of the series (that would be 2 & 3 in my opinion), it does have a nice "Andy Griffith" quality to it. I am thankful that these are finally being released on DVD. It will be exciting to see the complete episodes vs. the syndicated.
Plus, rumour has it that Season 2 will follow later in 2005...buy, buy, buy and support this & further releases. DORIS ROCKS!!!!!!

These are cute, funny, but dated. We would recommend these for someone who likes to revisit the '60's and reminisce about simpler times. Read morePublished 21 months ago by trailmarker
