    The twelve single-side recorded DVDs in MILL CREEK's ESSENTIAL FAMILY TELEVISION contain episodes of 1950's and '60s sitcom and adventure series, plus some variety shows (Milton Berle, Ed Wynn, Eddie Fisher) and specials (Phil Silvers, Edgar Bergen). Besides the more commonly seen programs, there's samples here of some genuine TV rarities, like the Buster Keaton, Jim Backus, Dennis Day and Dennis O'Keefe shows. Video and audio transfer quality of these antique TV films is generally good.

    All DVDs come individually stored in gloss-coated heavy paper sleeves that also provide program data and episode titles. The discs are housed in a space-saving easy-access storage box (front hinged door with two velcro closures). "Essential Family Television" is over 65 hours of classic TV from America's leading seller of value-priced DVD compilations, MILL CREEK ENTERTAINMENT.

    Vintage TV fans are sure to enjoy SPIES & LIES, also from MILL CREEK. There's 50 episodes here from 11 rarely seen crime/action series.

    With the absolute garbage on television today these DVD sets are a godsend. You get one-hundred and fifty old television shows, at least 70 hours of quality entertainment! And here's what they don't tell you in any of the ads--many of these shows run the full half hour complete with all those woderful old commercials! See the brand new 57 Chevy or the top of the line Brownie camera. Or how about Efrem plugging the next episode of the FBI this Sunday night. Great, great stuff. There are other Mill Creek boxed sets of old television shows, and there worth every penny!

    This 12 disc set of vintage television shows of the 1950's and 1960's will be treasured by any fan of TV from the era. Although THE LUCY SHOW (20 episodes), OZZIE AND HARRIET (20 episodes) and THE JACK BENNY SHOW (10 episodes) are perhaps too overrepresented in the set, there's still another 28 shows that have 1-7 episodes each here.

    There's not much to add to the credits beyond Annie Van Auken's always essential comments on sets like these, however I would like to point out some of my favorite shows. There's super rare EDGAR BERGEN variety show from 1950 with guest Diana Lynn with a Thanksgiving theme (and of course Charlie McCarthy and Mortimer Snerd), an episode from LIBERACE with a very rare chance to see the iconic vaudeville stars The Duncan Sisters (one of four Liberace episodes), and certainly the five episodes of the ED WYNN show from 1949-50 are worth buying the set for by themselves with such great guests as Hattie McDaniel, The Three Stooges, Buster Keaton, Virginia O'Brien, and Victor Moore. The 50's children's show SKY KING has four episodes and there are two episodes from the surprisingly hard-to-find Eve Arden classic OUR MISS BROOKS. There's two episodes from the elusive BUSTER KEATON show of the 1950's snf five from MICKEY ROONEY's long-forgotten sitcom. Ann Sothern's hit PRIVATE SECRETARY is represented by three programs and everyone's favorite collie LASSIE has two episodes from the early years. Other rarities in the set include Wally Cox's THE ADVENTURES OF HIRAM HOLIDAY (six episodes), THE DENNIS O'KEEFE SHOW (four), THE JIM BACKUS SHOW (two), and Stu Erwin's THE TROUBLE WITH FATHER (six). Joan Davis' well-remembered I MARRIED JOAN has six programs in the set as is the evergreen TV legend Betty White in her first sitcom LIFE WITH ELIZABETH.

    There are some of the very best of "golden oldies" tv shows on these DVDs. They are mostly from the 50's. These old tv shows are still funny and great entertainment for the entire family. The commercials can be as entertaining as the shows.

    Bought this for my husband who does not enjoy the tv shows produced today. He, our daughter of 15, and myself love and enjoy watching these classic shows of yesteryear. I would recommend to everyone.

    I love the series in this collection. The sound for some shows is good, but for others it's so bad we couldn't watch them.
