Product Description

In the series opening twelve-year-old Ricky arrives at his unsuspecting father's mansion to introduce himself and move in. His mother Evelyn had placed him in military school after she remarried and thought Ricky would be in the way. Edward Stratton III was the epitome of the words "overgrown child" never having taken responsibility for anything in his lifetime. His lifestyle was that of a ten-year-old going as far as having video games and a scale freight train in the livingroom. Needless to say, he was surprised to discover that his seven day marriage to Evelyn Bluedhorn had produced a son. After originally sending Ricky back to boarding school, Edward changed his mind and brought his son home. Throughout the five years Silver Spoons, many changes occurred in the Stratton household. Ricky became a carefree, fun loving teenager while Edward became a responsible, loving father and husband. Edward courted and married his personal assistant, Kate Summers, and she provided them both with


Back in 1982, it was perfectly fine to refer to the 12-year-old star of Silver Spoons as Ricky Schroder. It wouldn't be until his young adult years, when he went on to star in such projects as Lonesome Dove, 24, and NYPD Blue that Schroder would try to distance himself from the sitcom that made him a household name and replace Ricky with Rick. But no matter how many plum roles Schroder gets, we will always have fond memories of Ricky--or the Rickster, as he was sometimes called on the show. The first season opens with millionaire man-child Edward Stratton III (Joel Higgins) learning that he is the father of a tween boy. Straight out of military school, little Ricky moves in with his dad and the two fill needs in each other's lives that they didn't realize needed filling. Schroder already had proven his dramatic acting chops in the 1979 theatrical release The Champ, for which he won a Golden Globe. With Silver Spoons--especially during the first couple seasons--he didn't have to do much else than look adorable (And look adorable he does). Playing the wise child to Higgins' somewhat immature (and emotionally stunted) dad, he's a natural whether helping his father land a date, dealing with a school bully, or making sure his father and grandfather come to terms with their complicated relationship. This three-disc box set includes all 22 episodes, which aired on NBC from 1982-1983. The guest list from the first season is impressive. Jason Bateman (Arrested Development) has a recurring role as his friend/foe Derek. And Sharon Stone, Mr. T and Joey--sorry, Joseph--Lawrence all make appearances. Silver Spoons won't go down as a serious contribution to the world of television. But like cotton candy, it's a welcome treat that's fun to indulge in on occasion. --Jae-Ha Kim

'Silver Spoons' is one of those hidden 'almost forgotten' treasures of eighties television. In a tv landscape that thrived on cutting edge shows like 'Dallas', 'Dynasty' and 'Magnum P.I.', family shows were often overlooked. I had no idea it had even been released on video until it was recommended to me on Netflix. From there, I rushed over here to purchase it! My only disappointment is that I can't get every episode! There are some I've only seen ONCE! I grew up with a pre-teen crush on 'The Ricker' and adoring Erin Gray as a strong yet feminine role model. Simply put, this cast was terrific and had great chemistry with each other. When I purchased it, I sat down with my 10 year old son and we watched the entire first season dvd in 3 evenings. He absolutely loved it! He picked up on so many good 'lessons' that the quality family series taught too. I so want him to have a chance to enjoy the rest of the series and follow Ricky through teenage-dom as he and Edward and Kate figure it all out together. Just wonderful, fun, clean television like we rarely see on any channel today!

At LAST this 80s CLASSIC gets the DVD treatment it deserves!!

[minor spoiler alert!]

This was a wonderful show during the years it aired. I fondly remember many of the episodes. Some elements of this show still stick with me to this day. When Jason Bateman left the show, my real-life best friend moved to another state. Being a 4th grader at the time, this made the show and the whole experience really hit home. This series was light-hearted, but still managed to present themes and situations that kids really went through. As a 30-something adult, whenever I think of that time of my life, this television show instantly springs to mind.

On a side note, Rick Schroder will always be "Ricky" to me. And Erin Gray is still incredibly beautiful to this day! Long live "The Ricker" !!

This 1982-83 Season of SILVER SPOONS was a fabulous DVD as well as being the season that made SILVER SPOONS a big hit and made Rick Schroeder a star, plus I also liked that the 1st Season was the season where Arnold Drummond from DIFFERENT STROKES meets Ricky Stratton for the first time, which was a cast collide episode of SILVER SPOONS, which brought back memories to me when NBC used to show SILVER SPOONS at 8:30PM right after DIFFERENT STROKES at 8PM every Saturday night at one time from the Fall of 1982 thru the Summer of 1984 when they were both part of NBC's Saturday night line-up, especially since so many people have been anxiously awaiting for the 1983-84 Season of SILVER SPOONS to come out on DVD along with the fact that it's even better than the 1982-83 Season.

So now that I've watched every episode of SILVER SPOONS First Season on DVD, I can hardly wait till they put SILVER SPOONS-2nd Season on DVD, since I think the 1983-84 Season of SILVER SPOONS was even better the 1st Season was, but I don't know what's taking them so long to put the Second Season on DVD though, especially since it's been over a year since SILVER SPOONS 1982-83 Season has already been on DVD, but it would certainly make a wonderful X-Mas present for some people if they were to release SILVER SPOONS Second Season on DVD by the end of this year(2008).

This TV show IS and WILL ALWAYS be my favorite show. I have all of these episodes taped from way back when I was a kid when the generation of the VHS (recorders came out). and that was not long after 1982 when Spoons began. I had to wait until reruns so I could tape them but it was worth all the wait. Now the tapes are dragging but (NO MORE). Sony did it! I know this will make Rick,Joel,Erin,Jason,Alfonso,Corky proud that this was released. Oh, and lets not forget the sly Christine Belford (Ricks Mom)..and, If only Mr houseman were alive. He made that show as well. He was (the greatest Grandfather). the bond between Rick and his grandfather was so great. "Gotta love the learning to drive episode". There are also some great guests on the show, Including Whitney houston,Mr T,Gary Coleman,Pearl Bailey and the ever so popular Menudo. This show makes you laugh,Cry,get angry like I did when Rick told freddy Lippincottleman that he wasnt his friend lol. The hardest thing in the world to see was derek leaving the show. That episode was very emotional. I was feeling at first that it wasnt going to be the same but the show was great from start to finish. For all you new people that are going to buy this....You are in for a real treat! Rick Schroder,(Ricker) youre an awesome actor!

R.I.P for two great actors franklin seales,John Houseman

PS: For those of you that worry that you have to buy so many sets that you might lose interest in this (do not worry) This show ran from 82 to 1987 so not many sets to buy. Please buy this so that Sony will continue to release them. I promise you wont be let down. Every season is great! of course the first three seasons are my favorite and rick grows in every season but all of them have a very good story!
