Editorial Reviews

In the series, which was Emmy nominated 14 times, winning 4 including Best Situation Comedy and Best Actor, Danny Thomas plays nightclub entertainer Danny Williams, an occasionally loud and cantankerous, but ultimately warm and soft-hearted master of his domain. Constantly being upstaged by his bratty but loveable kids, played by Rusty Hamer, Angela Cartwright and Sherry Jackson (whose role was taken over by Penny Parker), the ensemble also included beautiful Marjorie Lord as his understanding wife.

5.0 out of 5 stars The New, Improved "Daddy" January 22, 2008
Running from 1953 to 1964, "Make Room for Daddy" a/k/a "The Danny Thomas Show," was one of the key situation comedies from television's golden age, chronicling the humorous experiences in the life of nightclub entertainer Danny Williams (Danny Thomas) and his family. The show went through several distinct changes. From 1953 to 1956, Jean Hagen played Danny's wife Margaret, and Danny's children, Rusty and Terry, were respectively portrayed by Rusty Hamer and Sherry Jackson. Hagen left the show after the conclusion of the 1955-56 season and, for the 1956-57 season, Williams was a widower. For the 1957-58 season, Marjorie Lord joined the cast as Williams' second wife Kathy, who brought along her daughter Linda (Angela Cartwright) into the new family. By the beginning of the 1958-59 season (the 6th season, which this DVD set covers), Sherry Jackson's character was phased out of the principal cast and the show would continue with the regular lineup of Thomas, Lord, Hamer and Cartwright for the duration of the series. The show was produced and frequently directed by the legendary Sheldon Leonard.

Though it's considered by many to be one of the all-time classic family TV sitcoms, "Make Room for Daddy" has not fared well in the digital age . . . . until now. Previous DVD releases of the series have consisted of a handful of episodes from the Jean Hagen years that have fallen into the public domain, as well as the release of season 5 of the series in 2004 which, unfortunately, utilized edited, syndicated episodes losing 3 or more minutes per episode. Many fans of the series criticized that release and, for a while, it looked as if there were not going to be any additional DVD releases of the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best TV Box Sets Ever January 9, 2008
Questar released Season Five of this landmark series with chopped up syndicated episodes and even the syndicated opening credits. It was awful.

My hope is that S'More is giving us the complete episodes with the original titles!

If so, my five star review will stand.

Folks, I got the set today - the review stands. This is a terrific set. It is more than expected and leaves a lot of other TV series collections in the dust. At last this series, which was the bridge between "I Love Lucy" and "The Dick Van Dyke Show" is available as it should be seen for those who loved it then - and for those who will discover it anew.

The sad Season Five had edited syndication versions of the show with the syndication titles. This set has the original titles at the beginning of each episode and the episodes are full length. If you were disappointed in Season Five, don't let that keep you from buying Season Six. It's a whole new ball game.

All of the characters are here along with some stunning guest stars: Lucille Ball, Jack Benny, Dinah Shore, William Demarest, and in a continuing arc, Miss Annette Funicello who also sings and dances. The episodes look better than they did way back when. The sound is as crisp and clear as the images.

The extras include interviews with Marjorie Lord, Angela Cartwright, and Sid Melton. They all talk candidly and with a lot of affection for the show, their work, and the star Danny Thomas. It's great seeing Marjorie and Angela and hearing about their lives after the show. One extra also has Marjorie (mother of actress Anne Archer) reading from her book "A Dance and A Hug."

There is a PSA for St. Jude Hospital that opens each DVD, and another PSA
is a short extra on one disk.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Set For A Great Series! January 13, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Given the almost four year timeframe between this set and the Season 5 set, there was much concern whether "Make Room For Daddy" would even see a Season 6 release. Questar (the studio behind the previous set) caught a lot of heat from consumers over the syndicated episodes used for the Season 5 set. Enter S'more Entertainment who apparently listened to buyers by releasing Make Room For Daddy - Season 6 with complete, uncut episodes plus great extras. Unlike Questar with the Season 5 box set, S'more requested the original broadcast masters (not the syndicated versions) so all the original openings and closings of each episode are included. They also cleaned up the audio, interviewed Marjorie Lord (Kathy Williams), Sid Melton (Charlie Halper) and Angela Cartwright (Linda Williams) and even found a 10 minute outtake/blooper reel for the set. With a smaller box size than the previous set, the discs are housed in slimcases which not only give brief episode synopses and original airdates but also the episode number for the season followed by the episode number for the series. Overall, S'more Entertainment went above and beyond with this release. Fans who've been longing to own a quality Make Room For Daddy season set on DVD are sure to be pleased by all the work put into this set.

Well Thanks to You all taking the time to share Your thoughts,I was very Pleased to see season 6 was different and put my order in right then.Thank You All again.UPDATE!!!! Received Season 6 yesterday.I watched the first two discs and was very amazed at the quality of the picture and sound.Everything the other reviewers have stated about season 6 is true.It's quite possible that they have even understated the quality.If You Love old television then this is a must buy for You.You want a collection of discs that will make You laugh and tap Your foot and hear songs that will make You go back to a good time of life? Don't Miss out on this set.At the price,How can You go wrong?
