Editorial Reviews

Mr. Peepers (Wally Cox) is a shy science teacher at Jefferson Junior High... but what makes Mr. Peepers so unique is that, although he seems to be mild mannered, easily bullied, baffled and befuddled by every day life, he has the strength of his convictions to ensure his life is fulfilled and that no matter what, he prevails. Because of that, he becomes an "every man," a man we can identify with and aspire to be like.

Customer Reviews

Also the humor that I thought was funny then seems a little corny now.
Donald S. Scott
The shows that were directly filmed instead of broadcast live and Kinescoped had a much better chance of survival, and the picture quality is vastly better.
David
"Mister Peepers" is highly recommended for both fans of early sitcoms as well as anyone interested in early American live television broadcasting.

Format: DVD
In the late 1940s and early 1950s, much of television production was broadcast live and, prior to a nationwide feed, kinescopes (films of live broadcasts from television monitors) were made as a way to broadcast shows at a later date in different parts of the country and, in some cases, for later syndication purposes. Unfortunately, many of the kinescopes from early television shows were either lost or destroyed and, consequently, a good portion of early American television history has been lost to the ages. Thankfully, this is not the case with "Mister Peepers," one of television's earliest weekly situation comedies. Supposedly, 102 episodes out of a total series production of 127 reside at the UCLA Film & Television Archive and, from this collection, comes this first TV-on-DVD release from S'more Entertainment, a new DVD releasing company.

This set includes the first 26 episodes of the series along with the series' pilot, which features an unbilled Walter Matthau in the role of "Mr. Burr," Jefferson Junior High's coach (Matthau would not become a series regular). In addition to Matthau, the series featured up-and-coming stars like Tony Randall and Jack Warden. Marion Lorne, later "Aunt Clara" in "Bewitched," is also in the cast. But the show really belongs to Wally Cox. Unlike the cynical and often tasteless humor found in many modern sitcoms, there's a "kinder, gentler" humor found in "Mister Peepers," and Cox is just perfect in the role of Robinson Peepers, the good-hearted science teacher. Technically, the shows are crude when compared to modern day productions. While very watchable, there are some scratches and film specks from time-to-time (one of the early episodes has a bad scratch for a long portion) and there is noticeable audio hiss present on some episodes.

This is an absolutely delightful, subtle, and twee comedy from the year 1952. It will prove odd to many juveniles; there are no car chases, explosions, four letter words, or sex scenes. You have to pay attention to the dialogue, which is spoken not shouted. Mr. Peepers is a gentle and kind junior high science teacher, and the world seems to get the better of him...but not for long. Wally Cox is one of a kind, and so is Marion Lorne, who plays the principal's wife. Tony Randall and Jack Warden make guest appearances in these live performances, and they are entertaining. But in every episode, Cox is the focus, and his low-key humor can't be matched by anyone...at any time. This is wonderful television from a much kinder and quieter era.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Sadly, someone really did screw up in the packaging of this one; my first set was a mess with mislabelled disks and two with the same episodes, meaning seven episodes were missing; I got a replacement from Amazon and it was fine -- except for some reason there was an extra fifth disk that was a copy of another one. That's why I am giving the set four stars. So check your disks when you get your set, but then...

Savor one of the very few fifties sitcoms that holds up (and even though I'm an I LOVE LUCY fan, even that show is getting so old that the fascination is increasingly anthropological rather than a true, direct delight in the "wacky" goings on). PEEPERS has the sweet fifties-whimsical tone of GERALD MCBOING BOING or HAROLD AND THE PURPLE CRAYON. Wally Cox's portrayal is, in its way, a kind of less tortured proto-Stephen Wright.

And then you get a young Tony Randall (or Anthony Randall, as he is first billed) using his stage smarts to breathe incredible life into the character of Peepers' colleague and friend. In addition, the unearthing of these shows means that anyone who has ever loved Marion Lorne as Aunt Clara on BEWITCHED or enjoyed her memorable turn as the mother in STRANGERS ON A TRAIN now gets two-dozen-plus new performances by her; her dithery shtick steals many an episode. (Peepers: "Have a good weekend!" Lorne: "Oh, yes, we will, we will ... we're having artichokes!")

And even in this first season, we get to watch the budding romance between Peepers and the school nurse. Patricia Benoit's Miss Remington, with her early-Mia-Farrow short haircut and a fetching bit of an overbite, comes off as a quietly sexy small-town girl, and her eternal solicitous gaze at Peepers seems utterly plausible and warms the heart.

I purchased this set twice and the first disc was so scratched that it would not play. I exchanged it and the same thing happened again. Someone else complained of same problem. The manufacturer should have better quality control. I will try purchasing at a later date, but I wonder how responsive seller will be. Too bad as I looked forward to seeing this wonderful series once again.

The sound quality of the FIRST of 4 DVDs is sometimes a little rough, but once you have cranked up your volume to full-blast, you CAN hear it quite well, and this is a series worth hearing. Mr. Peepers is one of the most charming TV characters of all time, and the series has aged well. I was impressed with the quality of most of these 4 DVDs, considering they were printed from kinescopes, and delighted with the humor, characterizations and WIT. Charming altogether. I only wish that ALL the episodes were available for purchase. THAT would really be a treasure. But then, this is already a little treasure.....
