Product Description

MY THREE SONS is a delightful slice-of-life comedy about the American family. The series chronicles the life of the Douglas family; a seemingly simple premise that was a huge hit with audiences and a keystone of the TV family lineup in the ‘60s. Fred MacMurray delivers a standout portrayal as Steve Douglas, an aeronautical engineer and widower raising his three sons alone.

For Baby Boomers who fondly remember My Three Sons as just your typical quaint '60s family sitcom, there are surprises in store in these 18 episodes that conclude its groundbreaking first season. Credit director Peter Tewksbury, who directed every episode of the first season, with subverting sitcom convention. The clever episode, "Man in a Trench Coat," unfolds in the style of film noir, as middle son Robbie (Don Grady), under the influence of pulp-fiction paperbacks, lets his imagination get the better of him as sneaks around with a flirtatious blonde and tries to elude a stranger who's been tailing him. "Small Adventure" is a Hitchcockian exercise in which the family goes about its business unaware of the danger when romping family dog, Tramp, fetches an unexploded stick of dynamite into the house. In "Fire Watch," the season finale, college-bound son Mike (Tim Considine) gets much more than he bargained for when he takes a job with the Forestry Service and must man his watchtower post during a violent storm. In this first season, My Three Sons was the raucous flipside to the comparatively staid suburban domesticity of The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet, Father Knows Best and Leave It To Beaver. Fred MacMurray's Steve Douglas was a widower raising his boisterous brood with the help of "dear old Bub," his gruff father-in-law (William Frawley). The home "looks like a disaster area... nothing but bottlenecks and traffic jams." And between games of keepaway in the living room, blaring trumpet practice, and squabbles over the phone and lack of privacy, there are few quiet moments. But as a more misguided and regimented parent (future Bewitched star David White) observes in the episode, "Other People’s Houses," "You enjoy living together, sharing everything." While some of the episodes are corny and silly (In one, Steve and Robbie think they've found an abandoned baby, and in another, Bub searches frantically for youngest son Chip's escaped frog), others grapple with real-life issues such as first love, as when Mike and his girlfriend test their feelings for each other by not seeing each other for a week. My Three Sons’ first year holds up well. And who can resist the irresistible invitation of the classic toe-tapping "Chopstickian" theme song? --Donald Liebenson

Come back for our money when you decide not to butcher this classic show with your awful music/sound substitutions. I was fooled once with your volume 1 release, but I've learned my lesson.

I'm only giving this 1 star, sadly 0 stars doesn't appear to be an option.

Well, let me say first you totally rip us off by not releasing FULL SEASON sets, splitting the shows into usually 2 volumes per season Times are tight man, we just can't afford split seasons anymore at the prices you charge! How come you don't do it to all the shows? It seems Mannix, Hawaii Five- 0, Gomer Pyle get full season sets, yet the Streets of San Francsisco and The Fugitive are split? What's the deal here? Second you rip us off again replacing the original music with, well let's be frank about it - it's JUNK!
My Three Sons had a fairly sophisticated soundtrack for a sitcom, and it played along with the characters, although the music in a sit com is not as imperative as a drama like "The Fugitive" which was horribly butchered musically, for the ridiculous amount we are paying for these things why can't we get the original music? AND ... why is this problem prevalent for the most part only to Paramount/CBS DVD products? Obviously there is a problem with your company's legal department - they are either too lazy to do the research to get the needed clearances for the music OR they are too afraid of SOMETHING... In any event whoever is in charge of the music NEEDS TO BE FIRED!!!! They should have been FIRED after the first part of SEASON 2 of the Fugitive was released! What a PR fiasco that was for you Paramount CBS/DVD! I mean come on a cheesy synthesizer? GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER OVER THERE and release titles with music intact, and full season sets --- then it would be a no brainer for those who are interested in your releases - we would just pre order them without wondering what sort of surprise is in store for us this time??!!! With the economy in such bad shape, nobody is going to take their chances anymore buying your products without knowing what they are getting ahead of time. OH, by the way *****(FIVE STARS for the the show's original content, but I am giving MINUS FIVE stars to the music replacement!)

I would like to state for the record, that I love this show and have been waiting for it's release to DVD for a very long time. The news of it's release made me very happy until I watched a few of the episodes.

The first thing I want to point out is this is only half of the first season! This 1/2 season set practice (which is an insult to fans) has got to stop! I mean really the studio's should be tickled pink that there is a buying audience for these old classics to begin with. Breaking the seasons into two or more volumes is a slap in the face!

To make matters worse the music has been changed and the episodes are edited! The music used for this release is so bad, it's completely un-watchable for anyone who remembers the original! What's the point of trying to preserve these shows if your not going to do it right!? The fan base for these shows aren't getting any younger and if the studio heads who put this junk together expect fans to be happy, they are sadly mistaken.

I love the show, but I have to say do not buy this sub-par garbage and send a message to these greedy slackers that we will not accept anything less than well transferred shows presented un-edited and with all original content intact!

It is a real shame that a juggernaut like CBS/Paramount is taking advantage of consumers with releases like this. For fans of these old series, it is a no-win situation. If you buy this DVD, you're telling CBS/Paramount that is okay to release a half season of cut episodes minus the original music and charge full price. However, if you don't buy this DVD, you run the risk of CBS/Paramount not releasing further seasons due to poor sales. Probably the best thing to do is write to CBS/Paramount and let them know that you are interested in the DVD but do not appreciate that they are charging full price for a half season's worth of episodes which have been altered from their original format.
NOTE: This rating does not reflect the quality of the show which would warrant 5 stars. It reflects the horrible decision of CBS/paramount to break up the first season and overcharge the customer.

I just hope that the first season vol. 2 of My Three Sons just goes in the tanks for these reasons.

1. Music has been changed. 2. Half season releases. 3. The price of each half season being what a whole season should cost.
4. The cheap packaging in a standard case instead of slim cases in a cover box. (This one is the least of the problems.)

I have not bought either of the My Three Sons volumes and its gonna stay that way. I have been reading the other customer reviews for these sets and can't believe that some people would say something like "We'll it's better to have this than nothing at all" UGH, UNBELIEVABLE! We'll it's their money that is being thrown away. Also reading about the music being changed, still doesn't make sense to me why that happens. Now it's been 10 months since this volume came out and their is NO SIGN of season 2 yet. So just maybe people might be getting the hint.

Personally, I want all the seasons of MTS to come out (the right way) because I liked the show and thought Fred MacMurray played one of the best TV Dads. In the later seasons I thought Uncle Charlie was a kick. Also when Rob and Katie had the triplet boys, I still remember all the Douglas men showing up at the hospital claiming to be the father (even a young Ernie).

IT'S A SHAME what has happened to so many of the TV shows released through CBS/PARAMOUNT (GARBAGE) HOME VIDEO. I'm not gonna list any show titles because that could take a while. If us the consumer QUIT BUYING PARAMOUNT PRODUCTS with the junk their doing to it, then maybe they will put it out the RIGHT WAY or not at all, which would also be TOO BAD!

Do you think we"ll get a Season 2 release?
You shouldn't accept the music changes because they weren't neccessary. The best way to ensure the rest of this series gets released is to push CBS/PARAMOUNT to go back and fix Season 1. If they restore the original underscore to this show I will buy it - otherwise I'm avoiding this and ALL shows... Read More
