Editorial Reviews

Americas #1 dad returns for another season of family adventures! Robert Young is Jim Anderson, patriarch extraordinaire to his loving but sometimes misguided family. With Bud (Billy Gray) taking up the practice of mind-reading, Kathy (Lauren Chapin) rebelling at summer camp, Betty (Elinor Donahue) discovering that Mother Margaret (Jane Wyatt) has been placed in her English class as a student: it is certain that the father who knows best is going to have his hands full! By the fourth season, Father Knows Best was a prime-time fixture for NBC, although the program would soon return to the CBS lineup for its last two seasons. Get ready for a trip back in time to 1950s suburbia with the Andersons in Father Knows Best Season Four!

Bonus Features

* WINDOW ON MAIN STREET: The Boy Who Got It Made and The Haunted House Episodes from Robert Youngs very next TV series

5.0 out of 5 stars Season 4 the best season and box set so far! March 18, 2010
Although seasons 1-3 have been wonderful via SHOUTS! great dvd sets season 4 hits it out of the park from the great news on the back of the dvd box "all 33 Uncut episodes" to each of the episodes themselves. Many are excellent episodes and the rest are all very good television. A standout is MR BEAL MEETS HIS MATCH, this rarely seen episode which was never shown in the package that The Family Channel aired in the 1980's and early 1990's is a dark and sinister episode with a really good payoff. Another standout is the episode in which legendary actress Greer Garson guest stars. After watching the entire set you will feel sad there aren't any more episodes left in the set. The cast is now hitting their stride and totally believable as a family, Robert Young and Jane Wyatt turn in outstanding performances week after week, Billy Gray's perfomances were always on the mark and he could be comical and yet serious and displayed a great range as Bud as did Elinor Donahue as Betty, the entire crew are all working in tandem with the cast to turn out a show that has become along with LEAVE IT TO BEAVER a classic example of 1950's televsion and something that all of us have wished life was really like if only for 1/2 hour a day! Print quality is clear and sound is crisp on most of the episodes if not all again especially taking into account these shows have not been restored possibly because FKB has not been in syndication in years and it took a while to figure out where the rights to broadcast and home video really belonged - and thanks must go to SHOUT! for releasing the classic show along with thanks to Robert Young's grandson Bill Proffit, the estate of Eugene Rodney and SONY for opening ther vaults to SHOUT! so unedited episodes could be utilized!

5.0 out of 5 stars Why no commentary from Billy Gray? January 4, 2010
We've heard from Elinor Donahue and Lauren Chapin on previous FKB releases, but not from Billy Gray (Bud). Mr. Gray wrote me an email a few months ago stating that he'd be happy to do commentary on some episodes. Apparently, he hasn't been asked. My question for Shout Factory is: Why not??? I would love to hear Mr. Gray's perspective and memories of the show!

5.0 out of 5 stars Father Knows Best Seasons one-three February 19, 2010
This is a terrific series, not only for its entertainment value, but also for its moral and social value. If the youths of today were raised on these instead of the superficial one-track sitcoms of today, they would have something wonderful to prepare them for life in an adult world.
The casting was excellent, and I agree with other reviews, Billy Gray was great for the part of Bud. I have not seen another character like him on any program. He was unique.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the good stuff!! March 28, 2010
By Adorem
This series is the best!! I have watched all 33 episodes and, the thing about the show is that it is both funny at times and very emotional too. I got teary eyed many times.

Wish so much there could be a way to be transfered into the show because life is so good at the Anderson's and you just wanna be a part of the family!

Shout Factory is so wonderful to be putting this fantastic TV series to DVD and I can't wait for them to release Season's 5 and 6!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars WHAT A CLASSIC SHOW March 28, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I just received season 4 of this classic show...I have watched several episodes of this season, and I believe each season gets better and better...the combination of comedy, drama and stirring of the emotions is perfect...the cast (and director) does such an outstanding job, and were perfectly selected for this show...those who watch will have their favorite episodes and see why this show, although now 50 years since the last new episode, should be included in any discussion of the best in television history...bring on seasons 5 and 6

5.0 out of 5 stars Feel good series June 7, 2014
By Brad
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This has always been one of my favorites. It has good and thoughtful life lessons for everyone plus just enough light hearted moments to add interest. I would recommend this series to everyone. We need more of this kind of program to watch. My only complaint is you have decided to charge for each episode and so I have purchased the series. Your free streaming is limited and many programs and movies are not available.
