Editorial Reviews

Wally Cox, as Mr. Peepers, plays a shy science teacher at "Jefferson Junior High". But what makes Mr. Peepers so unique that although he seems to be mild mannered, easily bullied, baffled and befuddled by every day life, he had the strength of his convictions to insure his life was fulfilled and that no matter what, he prevailed Because of that, he became an "every man", a man we could identify with, someone we could aspire to be like. The fact he put others before himself, that he genuinely cared about his students and those around him, including his sister and mother, despite the obstacles life constantly put before him, he always prevailed, even to the extent that the series ends with him marrying the girl of his dreams. Includes all 26 episodes in Season 2 including the commercials, which were done live.

Special Features: Interview with Tony Randall about his experiences on Mister Peepers produced by the Television Academy Short film explaining what a kinescope is and how they're made Footage of creator David Swift accepting the Peabody Award for the series Episode from the TV series Suspense entitled "Murderer's Meeting" featuring Wally Cox with Jackie Cooper and Mildred Natwick

5.0 out of 5 stars Mister Peepers #2: A Priceless Gem ! November 29, 2008
Format:DVD
After waiting three long years for more MISTER PEEPERS, our wishes are granted! This set is superior to the first set, not only in quality reproduction of the original kinescopes held in UCLA's archive, but in the entertainment value of each script. If you're a fan of THE ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW, then you'll love this collection of 26 episodes written by Jim Fritzell and Everett Greenbaum, whose expertise made GRIFFITH a 1960s hit. While gentler and simpler than the Griffith show, MISTER PEEPERS blossomed under the care of this great writing team. The accent is on character development, not slapstick, as with most early TV sitcoms.

The acting is topnotch, and each segment is filled with priceless interactions between the characters. Wally Cox is sublime as Robinson Peepers, meek and mild science teacher. Tony Randall is convincingly blustery as know-it-all Harvey Weskit, the history teacher. Pat Benoit is the most natural of anyone in the cast, very calm, quiet, sincere. Her performances are truly ones to watch. And the inimitable Marion Lorne, forever emblazoned on our memories as Aunt Clara in BEWITCHED, shines brighter here as Mrs. Bernice Gurney, the befuddled English teacher. If you are a BEWITCHED fan, you must buy this set. Lorne is at her best; she's far funnier as Gurney than Clara. You won't be disappointed in her every stammer and falter. And Lorne had to work hard to perfect this. Some critics say she was forgetful of her lines and thus created the stuttering effect...not so! Lorne learned her part and then injected the delays, second-takes, and giggles. What a pro! An Emmy-worthy actress long before BEWITCHED!

And the semi-regulars shine just as brightly. Two episodes in this batch include the divine Reta Shaw as Peepers's beloved Aunt Lil.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply irresistible! November 30, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The long wait after the release of Season 1 was agonizing and punctuated with prayer for the release of Season 2, but it was worth it when I received the Season 2 boxed set. This set is even superior to Season 1, both in cinematic quality and in plot development and humor. I have watched all but the final two episodes on the set, and I am utterly delighted. Everything that made the first set wonderful is still here--the adorable Mrs. Gurney (Marion Lorne), Wally Cox's hilariously understated comedic talent as Robinson J. Peepers, Nancy Remington's growing affection for Robinson Peepers, and Tony Randall's over-the-top portrayal of Harvey Weskit. This season adds new settings and characters, a raft of new predicaments, and perfected interaction of the cast members with each other, as they become a finely tuned team. The bonus material is good too, particularly the interview with the late Tony Randall. Every episode includes the original commercials for Reynolds aluminum, too--an extra treat.

My only disappointment with this set was that I thought Peepers' and Nancy's wedding would be on it, but this was not the case. Where I am in viewing the set right now, they are not even engaged yet. This means that Season 3 is a must-have, as their wedding was the very first nationally televised wedding on a regular TV program, and it stopped the entire nation in its tracks. I can't wait to see it! I have not heard any plans for releasing Season 3, but if there is a strong positive response from us the viewers, I am sure there will be a Season 3 release. This would be a good time to give Seasons 1 and 2 as Christmas gifts to the Peepersphiles and the uninitiated and send a letter to the inimitable Arny Schorr, who is responsible for bringing us te first two boxed sets.

5.0 out of 5 stars season 2 of mr. peepers November 11, 2008
Format:DVD
Can not believe that season 2 finally arrived, it is one of the best early 50's TV shows I have seen, I am already looking forward for season 3. Wally Cox is excellent in this role as a High School science teacher, a role made for him only. I encourage anyone who loves the simplicity of the early 50's and their brand of humor to immediately purchase this DVD, almost 800 minutes of total fun. The supporting cast was also very good, especially Tony Randall and Marion Lorne. Buy now and have fun. If any of you love going back to the 50s and relieve our childhood and youth, this is the perfect DVD for you, the simple and fun times and the fun and not so fun days at High School. The stories are short and simple but very fun and it depicts the teachers back then very well. This is a must for everyone, buy it and have hours of fun with it on a rainy day, or any day.

J.K.

5.0 out of 5 stars More "Mister Peepers" = More Laughs January 9, 2009
Format:DVD
Following up on its 2005 release of the first 26 episodes of the early 1950s live situation comedy Mister Peepers - The TV Series, S'more Entertainment delivers its second volume of the next 26 episodes, taking us to about the halfway point of surviving episodes in the series. This second group of episodes chronologically begins where the first set leaves off, from the Spring of 1953 to November 1953. Like the previous group of episodes, the show focuses on the humorous adventures of junior high school science teacher Robinson Peepers (Wally Cox) and his closest friends Harvey Weskit (Tony Randall), Nancy Remington (Patricia Benoit) and Mrs. Gurney (Marion Lorne). One of the highlights is the marriage of Harvey Weskit to his beloved Marge Bellows (Georgiann Johnson). While most of the cast members of "Mister Peepers" are deceased, it is interesting to note that Johnson had active television credits as late as 2007 (an episode of the crime series "Cold Case"). The supporting roles include many long forgotten actors, but there are a few recognizable guest stars like Martin Balsam, Reta Shaw, and Jack Warden, who is introduced as a new coach at Jefferson Junior High in the final episode in this set.

For me, the keys to "Mister Peepers'" success boil down to three elements. First, unlike the "in your face" crass nonsense that's passed off as "writing" in many modern sitcoms, "Mister Peepers" employs a much more subtle approach that forces the viewer to actively listen to the dialog. Second, while Wally Cox is engaging in the lead role, the producers have wisely surrounded him with a terrific ensemble cast.

Mr Peepers Season 1?
The first release actually contained the first 26 episodes of the series; this second release should probably have been called volume 2 rather than season 2 (see Fredrick Tucker's explanation in paragraph four of his review). Regardless, both volumes are worth owning as "Mister... Read More
