Editorial Reviews

The Howdy Doody Show made its debut on television in 1947. When The Howdy Doody Show first aired, there were only 20,000 American homes with television sets and NBC only had stations in six television markets. The show was credited as a major factor in the growth of NBC. The Howdy Doody Show went on to air 2,543 episodes, before running its final episode on September 24, 1960. The Howdy Doody Show set numerous benchmarks for television. It was the first network kids show to air five days a week, the first show on the air each day (it was preceded by the network's color pattern), the first television show ever broadcast in color, and the first show ever to air in more than 1,000 continuous episodes. While Howdy and his friend s entertained American children, they also sold television sets to American parents and demonstrated the potential of the new medium to advertisers.

    All potential buyers should be aware that these episodes are also included in the 40 episode box also sold by Mill Creek. I did not know this and bought both, only to discover that two discs on the bigger set are duplicated from this set. There was no way to know this ahead of time, as Mill Creek's website did not list the episodes on the 20 episode box. So don't buy both sets, unless you are buying one for yourself and one for a friend or family member.

    I purchased this for my brother's 60th birthday. (I also bought one for myself.)
    We were Howdy Doody fans in the 50's when the show was on tv. The quality of the collection is very good. Thanks for the memories!

    Kids liked it. Bought for kids as these old shows are so wholesome for young kids. Better then a lot of current cartoons

    I purchased this item to show my granddaughters one of the programs I watched as a child. They loved it and always ask me to play it when they visit. They laugh at the skits of Howdy and friends just as much as I do. I really enjoy watching them have a good time while they view Howdy Doody.

    I got my grandaughter the Howdy Doody ventrilaquist doll for Christmas and the Best of Howdy Doody - 20 episodes so we have not yet viewed the 20 episodes but the Howdy Doody doo is great. I would recommend this to anyone who is interested.

    ITEM RECEIVED IN GOOD ORDER. I have grown up with Howdy Doody in the 50's. It is rated Region 1 so I must wait till I get my DVD back with out Region. There is no mention if Clarabelle or Mr. Gingles or other members in the show.
    Thank you very much for help me relive this show

    While Howdy Doody never was a big favorite of mine, this bit of nostalgia is definately something to watch.
    I highly reccommend it to everyone.
