This set has some great episodes. I like the ones that had famous people as guest star. This set has the episodes with George Burns, Zsa Zsa Gabor, and Clint Eastwood. They are missing the episode with Mae West as a guest, hope it'll be on the next set. And soon, that was a favorite of mine.
The set is worth buying and is truly a delight to watch. It brings back great memories of my childhood, and how great and creative the shows were back in the sixties.
For those who are fans of old classics, great times and great tv, you need this set. Buy it and enjoy it, it's worth every penny. And remember, the only thing you have to remember is never, never lay a rake on the ground to step on. A clean and wholesome show for all to see.

For those of you who think extras are so important, forget about it. There aren't any. Just the 21 shows, complete from start to finish. Oh, by the way, it's a great show. But you already knew that, didn't you!
This compilation has high production values, from the attractive artwork, fun slipcase and separate program synopsis. Shows are culled from the first three seasons only, to keep some continuity with the characters. After the death of co-star Larry Keating (Roger Addison), new neighbors were introduced and we will likely meet them in further volumes. Oddly, the 21 shows are spread over two disks but three sides-- Disk 1 is a double-sided disk. I completely missed side two of Disk 1 the first time through!! The original source material for the most part is in excellent condition and I only saw one or two episodes with very minor problems. Because of the high resolution of the DVD media, it is fun to watch for interesting clues about how Ed talked. In many shots you can see very thin strings or cables dragging behind Ed or across his coat, and often you can clearly see his bridle being "tugged" as he is cued to talk.
My only disappointment is that the producers failed to present these shows in the order they were originally aired, and the 21 episode are scattered around the first three years of the show. That prevents hardcore TV fans from watching the story and characters develop. It's a very minor point, though, because this disk is a treasure for any Mr. Ed fan and a wonderful value.
