This show originally aired when I was a baby. My grandparents used to talk about Gracie Allen but until the series aired on Antenna TV, I had never seen her. OMG, she was great. George Burns was a very lucky man. He's excellent, too, btw. The show may seem a bit dated at times but overall the jokes, gags, and situations are timeless. Their real son, Ronnie Burns, also starred in the show. Burns and Allen were television pioneers and used bits that some shows today use (e.g., George steps out of character periodically to address the audience directly or uses his television to spy on the rest of the cast). Good clean fun for the entire family and the quality of the discs was excellent.

Lured by the color photo of Gracie & George on the cover, versus all the other DVDs of Gracie & George I perused on Amazon.com, I decided the information about this set, plus the total viewing time offered (over 4 hours) might be worth $10. Well...the cover art is definitely the best "video" about the set, but that's not to say the video is bad. Of the two enclosed discs, the first has some of the best video, the second has most of the best audio, given that Timeless Media Group apparently did NO restoration (audio or video) of the source material. However, the last episode on the second disc not only is the best episode of the two discs, it also has the best video and audio quality of the two discs! The episode must have been from one of their later (and better) shows, with a new set design, which was a little more modern, with better lighting...better everything!! It was a nice way to conclude the two-disc set.

There are no captions or subtitles on either disc, so with the first disc especially, one must listen attentively, or use the slow speed on your DVD player (if you're lucky enough to have that feature) to capture all the wonderful one-liners that Gracie throws out at lightning speed.

The shows are much like todays sit-coms, only from the '50s, and much, much more tame. The humor is family-oriented and fun to watch. Gracie is the life of ALL the skits!

Gracie seems much like an early version of Goldie Hawn, but without tatoos, blonde hair, or a mini-skirt. Gracie was a wonderful comedian who acted completely oblivious to the lunacy she delivered, and was utterly charming at it!! Goldi Hawn, who really became famous with her role on "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In" in the '60s, may have fashioned herself somewhat after Gracie!

Looks like they are releasing the same episodes but in a boxed tin- these are probably the same episodes that are public domain. When will Columbia/Sony wise up and get this show on boxed seasons- It is a classic and deserves the box set treatment. This coming Oct will mark the 60th anniversary- It is loooong overdue!

The kids (7 - 15) really loved this one. It was interesting to point out how the ads were just written into the script (Carnation Milk) rather than breaking for intermission. It was also notable that George would announce when the show would continue to be sponsored in his closing remarks each episode. Such as, "we will be on next week at this time." And later "We will be on every week at this time." Nice silly clean fun.

We are so glad that these are still available. The quality is fine and the shows still stand the test of time. I wish that there were more on the disc, but happy to have what we have.

This may not be the best technically mastered disc but the talents of George Burns and Gracie Allen are ageless. We need to see more of their shows televised. There are 8 years of Burns & Allen shows 1950-1958. The subject disc is very early in their TV career. Great stars never die. Buy it if you love George and Gracie.
