At last the Littlest Hobo is back in circulation. I remember watching these programs when I was a kid, and did not think they existed anymore really. They were probably not the most popular programs around,but I remember watching them on Friday night with great enthusiasm.It brings back great memories of when I watched these with my brother and friends, and of my first dog,Pal. Being in black and white only adds to the mystique.A really great DVD, of a simpler time, when we were all younger,[had more hair] and it took less to entertain us.Highly recommended, and hopefully more issues will be releases soon.

My kids [ages 5 and 8] and I are BIG fans of the 1979-85 CTV Littlest Hobo series. I remeber them as a teenager and young adult. Saturday and Sunday morning they are re-run on CTV and the kids and I watch two back to back episodes much to my wife's chagrin :)

In the process of Googling The Littlest Hobo, I learned of the 1958 movie and the 1963-65 series for the first time. Since I was born in 1963 I really wanted to see what 'Hobo' was like when I was a baby.

So I ordered Vol 1 and Vol 2, with Vol 2 arriving first.

Started watching this with the kids ... oops, the 1960s series was 'darker' and scarier. Maybe it was the theme song, that wasn't catchy like the 79-85 series, maybe it was being shot in black and white, but at least some of the 1960s series episodes really are not suitable for viewing by young children, even with a parent present. The opening episode involved a storyline about a strangler roaming NYC and a nightclub singer who cried wolf ... definately more scary than the happy 79-85 series ...

The acting is probably better in the 1960s series, and it is probably more interesting viewing for adults. Unlike his descendent of the same name, the 1960s London is more likely to growl and bare his teeth than the later London. Rest assurred though, either London is a really nice dog and wow, would the kids and I ever like to adopt a kindly, loveable, smart, well trained, reverse marking german sheperd :) we don't have the room for such a big dog but if Hobo wanted to adopt us, we'd be big time pushovers ... I'm sure my wife would have more sense though ...

So, by all means, order and enjoy Vol 1 and 2 of the 1960s series, just wait until the kids are a bit older to introduce them to London!

Now, if Bell Canada, owner of CTV, would only get off their corporate duff and license out a DVD set of the 1979-85 series, along with Hobo memorabilia .... Imagine a 'London' webkinz ....

Other viewers wrote that this disc contains the same shows as Volume 1, but if you own Volume 1 with the RED cover, the shows are different. Great show from the old days. Interesting story lines keep one in suspense throughout the shows. Good clean entertainment. I love these shows! Episode 5 stars Ellen Corby (Grandma Walton of The Waltons) and episode 6 stars Henry Gibson (Laugh In). Something amusing you may not notice right off, but there was one scene where Henry Gibson knocks over a dress rack in a store and when they set it back up, I realized the "dress rack" was actually an IV pole, a prop probably borrowed from a medical show.

I'm 33 and remember The Littlest Hobo from when I was a kid. I don't remember any of these. They look a lot older and the thyme song isn't the same as what I know: "Maybe tomorrow you'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow I'll just keep moving on". Happy I didn't pay a lot for this.
