Wildly popular, That Girl received four Emmy® nominations, as well as a Golden Globe Award for Thomas for Best TV Star Actress. The That Girl cast included Ted Bessel (Hollinger), Ruth Buzzi, George Carlin, Dabney Coleman, Rosemary DeCamp and Lew Parker (Lou Marie) and featured such notable guest stars as Milton Berle, Ethel Merman, Carl Reiner and Danny Thomas (Marlo's father).
This 5-DVD box set features all 30 half-hour episodes from the historic first season plus:
Original That Girl pilot episode
"The Making Of That Girl Featurette" with Marlo Thomas
That Girl Promos
That Girl In New York with Marlo Thomas and Bill Persky
Audio commentaries with Marlo Thomas and Bill Persky
One of the other kicks of reuniting with That Girl is the stellar roster of veteran character actors and future stars. Dabney Coleman, Bernie Kopell (Get Smart, The Love Boat), and Ronnie Schell (Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.) are regulars this season. Guest stars include Sally Kellerman and George Carlin in "Break a Leg," Rob Reiner and "Terry" Garr in "This Little Piggy Had a Ball" (the inevitable bowling-ball-stuck-on-the-toe episode), and a pre-All in the Family Carroll O'Connor as an amorous opera singer in "A Tenor's Loving Care." That Girl is so-'60s, but as with The Dick Van Dyke Show, on which series creators Sam Denoff and Bill Persky previously worked, the literate, character-driven comedy holds up remarkably well. --Donald Liebenson

That Girl is a television series that aired from 1966-1971. Shout Factory recently released That Girl season one on DVD. The colorful five disc set includes all thirty episodes from the shows first season. The picture and sound quality is great on the episodes.
If That Girl was before your time let me refresh your memory. The set includes the pilot episode. In this episode Ann Marie is seen in the big city pursuing her acting career. She is working at a counter when she is spotted by film makers looking for a last minute actress. On her lunch break she decides to look at a desk that is for sale and she crosses paths with a man named Don who is also interested in the desk. They cross paths later in the evening while she is filming a kidnapping scene and he thinks she is being kidnapped for real and he tries to rescue her. Everything works out fine and Ann Marie and Donald become boyfriend and girlfriend.
Although That Girl aired in the 1960's, it really opened the door for women sitcom stars. This show was before Mary Tyler Moore and decades before shows like Murphy Brown, Blossom, Ally McBeal, Ellen,Grace Under Fire and Suddenly Susan. The situations that Ann Marie finds herself in our themes that became common in the Hollywood sitcom. Babysitting woes, minor court cases, problems with parents, and much more.
This is a really great set and one of the best TV on DVD sets Shout has ever released. It's so bright and colorful and full of bonus features. Bonus material includes:
-Original That Girl Pilot Episode
-That Show...That Woman...The Creation Of That Girl with Marlo Thomas
-That Girl promos
-That Girl in New York with Marlo Thomas and Bill Persky
-Audio commentaries with Marlo Thomas and Bill Persky
The situations are as funny as they've ever been. My wife was never a fan of the show, but she watched a couple episodes with me and was laughing out loud.
The extras include an interview with Marlo about the creation of the show. There is also a short with much of the outdoor shots taken in New York that were woven into the episodes with commentary on how they did that. On top of that, they include the never-aired pilot!!!
The packaging is bright and colorful and of similar quaility to the "Everybody Loves Raymond" sets.
If you were ever a fan of this show, you will not be disappointed with this set, and Amazon has the best price by far.

Oh, yeah...I remember That Girl...maybe not when it first came out, but I do remember the reruns on Los Angeles channel KTTV, channel 11...I must've been like six years old and I was flippin' the knob as fast as I could...remember doing that?...and all of the sudden the television landed on a show with this beautiful girl on it. Like I said, I was only six but I knew a beautiful lady when I saw one and she was definitely beautiful. Little did I know I was forming a lifelong passion for brunettes.
When you watch this show now it was so hokey and so corny, but I think that's what makes it so endearing, just this gentle, sweet innocence going on and there wasn't too much innocence going on in the sixties. People were ripping the blinders off their eyes and seeing things not only as they were, but as they could be. Despite all the bloodshed, the rebellion, the anger, I think the sixties were a very pivotal point in not only the history of the United States, but the whole world. People began to really tune into life at this time. People began to understand that the individual plays a HUGE ROLE in the transformation of the world. But if you asked my dad about the 60s, he'll just say it was all about "dirty, stinky hippies in dire need of a shower.Read more ›

It's got to be a bug. I just notified Amazon. I sell these things so it's a BIG concern to me!
If you don't mind, I quoted your post anonymously in my inquiry.
