Editorial Reviews

Following the success of the Topper movies, the well-loved characters created by Thorne Smith were brought to life on the small screen from 1953-1956. When the ghosts of George and Marion Kerby return to their home after dying in a skiing accident, they discover the house is now occupied by uptight banker Cosmo Topper and his wife. Visible only to Cosmo, the Kerbys cause unending trouble in their attempts to teach him to enjoy life. One of the show's young screenwriters, Stephen Sondheim, would go on to greater fame as lyricist for such major musicals as West Side Story.

Decorating: A sleazy interior decorator cons Mrs. Topper into buying a $3000 set of "modern" furniture. The Kerbys are determined to get her money back.

Legacy: An uncle dies and leaves a million dollar inheritance to the Kerbys. A crooked lawyer hires actors to impersonate them, to prevent the money from going to charity.

The Picnic: Outdoorsman cousin Willie comes to stay with the Toppers and turns the household upside down.

Includes bonus "Joe Palooka Story" episode, "Below the Border" (1954) starring Joe Kirkwood.

I purchased Topper Volume 3 for $ 7.69. It is okay if you have never purchased the Topper series but a while back I bought TV Classics THE ADVENTURES OF TOPPER for only $ 3.99 which has 9 episodes. Volume 3 only has 3 episodes and 2 episodes out of the 3 are in the other DVD. there is a bonus episode of Joe Palooka which I didn't think is very good. Buy the ADVENTURES OF TOPPER. Is is a lot cheaper and a lot better.

It's been decades since I have seen Topper on TV. As someone else stated this is Only Three episodes - and I'll add full of imperfections and NOT restored, and is in Black & White. There are no 'Bonus' features other than 'Joe Palooka' (also Black & White) - some stupid boxing story about 'Joe' going to Mexico to fight - and NOTHING to do with Topper. This DVD should be like in a discount bin for $2.00. The show itself is pretty good given the time period (1950's?). Scott M.

This takes me back fifty years ago and is well worth the money. I find this one of my best purchases.

I enjoyed the Topper series when it originally ran on TV. The Volume 3 DVD I received was of very poor quality, and appeared to be de-laminating. I kept it because the time, effort, and postage to return it would have been more than the DVD cost.

Purchased for my 97 years young mother, brought a smile to her face. Most of the television shows & movies now of days are made for the younger generation has little interest to her. The quality of the dvd gets a two thumbs up from me. Thanks!

I had remembered it as much brighter, funnier so was very disappointed.
I only watched 1 1/2 episodes & that was it ...... no more. The quality of
scenes is very blurry as are the voices.

This series of shows from the early days of TV remind us of when TV was actually decent to watch, intelligent, and well-written. Delightful ensemble cast. The dog is a delight. Great family viewing.

We are currently watching these shows as we have a few minutes to stop, put up our feet, and rest. They are just as enjoyable as the other two volumes. They are black and white.
