Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Before The Dick Van Dyke Show, suburbia was never portrayed on television as a haven of sophistication. We never followed Ozzie Nelson to work. And we never, ever fantasized what Ward and June Cleaver did behind closed doors. But Your Show of Shows veteran Carl Reiner's groundbreaking series broke the staid, sitcom mold. Just consider Mary Tyler Moore's Laura Petrie, the ravishing wife of Dick Van Dyke's comedy writer, Rob Petrie. "I'm just a housewife," she proclaims in the episode "To Tell or Not to Tell," just before breaking into an incendiary bossa nova in the Petrie living room. In "The Return of Happy Spangler," she is jokingly identified as Jackie Kennedy. But the comparison is apt. She's got style (those capri pants scandalized the show's sponsors!); she's got grace. The Dick Van Dyke Show boasts a peerless ensemble, gold-standard writing, and characters who have become icons. How many comedy writers were inspired to get into the business by watching Rob and his staff, man-hungry Sally Rogers (Rose Marie) and old school "human joke machine" Buddy Sorrell (Morey Amsterdam), brainstorm sketches for tyrannical boss Alan Brady (much discussed, and much feared, but never seen in season 1)?

Much of the comedy in the first season springs from Rob juggling his glamorous career with his harried home life. In the first episode, he compels his over-protective wife to attend a party at Alan Brady's, though she is worried son Ritchie (Larry Matthews) is sick ("He turned down his cupcake"). In "Washington vs. the Bunny," Rob must choose between a business trip and seeing Ritchie in a school play. In another episode, Rob forgets "Forty-Four Tickets" he had promised to the P.T.A. But back to Laura (and about time!). As the season unfolds, Moore comes into her own as a gifted comedienne, and she takes her stock character to dizzy new heights, as witness "My Blonde-Haired Brunette" and the classic "The Curious Thing About Women," the one with the inflatable boat. A pop culture benchmark, The Dick Van Dyke Show is must-own television. --Donald Liebenson

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful quality! October 22, 2003
Format:DVD
I just bought this set (along with Season 2) and can't say enough good things about it. First, when Image says the episodes are "restored" -- they mean it! Picture and sound quality are excellent. Next, these are the FULL-LENGTH episodes, completely unedited. The first episode I played had a scene in the middle of the show that I'd never seen before (not on TV Land, not on Nick at Nite, not in local syndication). Running time of each episode is at least 25 minutes & 30 seconds -- wow. Another episode I played even had the original network footage at the beginning, with Dick Van Dyke saying, "Welcome to our new time slot." Amazing. Then there are the bonus features -- audio commentaries (interesting ones!) and new interviews and original TV commercials and Emmy Awards footage and more. Finally, the packaging is very sleek and looks great. Do yourself a favor and buy this. Do ALL "Dick Van Dyke Show" fans a favor and buy it so that Image will release Seasons 3 through 5.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ohhhh, Rooob! this is the best sitcom ever June 2, 2003
By Tommy
Format:DVD
There's nothing better or more impressive than a great, old, sitcom that still cracks you up, no matter how old you are. This sitcom makes me laugh *very* hard, and i'm 13. all the slapstick can be enjoyed by the younger group of children while the wittiness, quick timing, and sacarsam will appeal to an older audience. here are the great episodes from the first season.
Ratings:
**** - One of the very best
*** - Good
** - Not so good
* - Unworthy of association with the rest of the series
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
THE SICK BOY AND THE SITTER (1) - The first episode ever. Laura worries about leaving Ritchie with a babysitter when she thinks he's sick. *** (NOTE: Mary Tyler Moore's real-life son was named Ritchie.)
THE MEERSHATZ PIPE (2) - Rob gets jealous when Buddy seems to be getting preferential treatment from Alan Brady. ***
JEALOUSY (3) - Laura doubts Rob's faithfulness when a beautiful guest star appears on the show. ***
SALLY AND THE LAB TECHNICIAN (4) - Sally ruins a date with Laura's cousin when she can't stop wisecracking. ***
WASHINGTON VS. THE BUNNY (5) - Rob agonizes over having to miss Ritchie's school play. ****
OH, HOW WE MET ON THE NIGHT THAT WE DANCED (6) - Rob and Laura explain to Ritchie how they met. *** (NOTE: In this episode, Laura's maiden name is Meeker, which was the last name of Mary Tyler Moore's first husband. In Episodes 59, 87, 131 and 156, it's Meehan. Rob also says he doesn't smoke, but in several other episodes, he is clearly seen with a cigarette.)
THE UNWELCOME HOUSE GUEST (7) - Rob takes care of Buddy's dog for the weekend. ***

Format:DVD
The Dick Van Dyke Show is simply a landmark of television situation comedy. It's treatment of the American family bought the sitcom into the 1960's. Where I Love Lucy, The Honeymooners, Leave it to Beaver and Father Knows Best were relics of the staid, conservative Eisenhower years, The Dick Van Dyke Show propelled sitcoms into the New Frontier. Audiences now got to see a family that more closely mirrored the situations and concerns of their own lives (even with the inevitable exaggeration of situations that occurs in event the best shows). For the first time, audiences not only got to see where the father figure in a family worked, but that workplace became a focal point for many of the show's episodes. Fathers and mothers were real people and not the carboard cutouts of Father Knows Best and Ozzie and Harriet or the hysterical cartoon characters of I Love Lucy. A Jewish character was vital, not as a caricature as in previous shows, but as a real, viable character. To be sure, there was the usual lunacy found in most sitcoms, but the humor arose from situations that its audience could identify with and relate to.
However, no innovation introduced by The Dick Van Dyke Show was more important than the modernization of the portrayals of women on television. Mary Tyler Moore's Laura Petrie isn't the pretty, but sexless perfect housewife of the 1950's. She is a sexy, intelligent partner to Dick Van Dyke's Rob Petrie who is nobody's fool and is Rob's moral conscience in many ways -- unheard of in the 1950's. As Van Dyke said during a retrospective on the show, "You knew that even though Rob and Laura slept in twin beds, they were doing something else besides sleeping in that bedroom.

The first two seasons of the long-awaited "Ottoman Collection" are now here as part of Image Entertainment's release. You will not be disappointed with the quality and content of these discs.
Look for seasons 3-5 next year and keep checking for info on the "Ottoman Collection " release. As the son of Sam Denoff, one of the writers and producers of The Dick Van Dyke Show, I've always wanted the DVD on DVD release to be of the highest quality.
The Dick Van Dyke Show was a big part of everyone's childhood, and in a very special way an even more important part of mine.
We hope that the color special, "Dick Van Dyke and the Other Woman" also makes it out on DVD soon. It was Mary Tyler Moore's fine performances in this special that clinched the deal for CBS to offer her her own well-deserved series.
