Editorial Reviews

Arnold and Willis are back for another season of one of television’s most memorable sitcoms!


During the fourth season, Arnold (Gary Coleman) lands in trouble with the law when he tries to join the Gooch’s private club, Willis (Todd Bridges) sues the basketball team when he is replaced by another player, Kimberly (Dana Plato) goes on a forbidden weekend skiing trip and Mr. Drummond (Conrad Bain) learns of a love child he had while serving in the Korean War! One of the true classics from the golden era of TV sitcoms, Diff’rent Strokes focused heavily on family values, social issues and big laughs

I love, do you hear me, loved this show when I was growing up. Just watching this show on DVD definitely brings back some good childhood memories. Just wish the kids had better lives outside the show, but that's the magic of television, where you can just sit back and escape. I remember this was the show when I first developed a crush on Janet Jackson when she played Charlene DuPrey, Willis' longtime girlfriend. I also had a crush on Dana Plato. Being able to see her each week was my main reason for tuning in. I hope 'Shout! factory' continues to release the remaining seasons.

In "Diff'rent Strokes - The Complete Fourth Season", the original cast returns, including Dody Goodman returning as the charming & eccentric Aunt Sophia. The serious subject matter blends in quite well with the comedy in episodes such as "Health Club", where Willis & Arnold are denied entry into Mr. Drummond's exclusive club, & in the episode titled "Crime Story" - a two-parter with Arnold & Dudley being bullied by two schoolyard thugs in giving up their school lunches. Willis escorts girlfriend Charlene in Mr. D's limousine in "The Car" & Arnold fears for Mr. D's safety in the episode "Dreams". Willis acquires a service station job in "Lifesavers", & Drummond learns he has a son whom he never met in "Hello Daddy". This fourth season is worth watching, where the viewer can learn many a life lesson through successive viewings while picking up many a laugh all the while. After all, in spite of the serious subject matter contained herein, this is still a sitcom the entire family can view together. Make this season of "Diff'rent Strokes" a must-have on your priority shopping list ASAP!

R.I.P., Conrad Bain, Gary Coleman, Dana Plato, Nedra Volz & Dody Goodman.

So many great childhood memories with this show & although there has been mistakes made during the younger stars early adult years, to millions of viewers who viewed this show during its original run, it's had such a positive impact as well as given us so many laughs, I was 4 Years old when I started watching this show & I leaned so many positive life lessons & messages on this show, it's time to finally respect the memories of the late cast & except we all made & make mistakes & give Todd Bridges the respect he deserves for changing his life the way he has & never forget the show itself is such a cool positive fun show, viewers as well as the cast should be so proud to watch this show & have worked on a type of show that brought so much laughter to millions of Families, RIP Conrad Bain, Dana Plato & Gary Coleman

Season four continues our love affair with the Jackson/Drummonds. Adelaide continues to play housekeeper to the family without the active credits Mrs.. Garrett (Charlotte Rae) had received. This is still the story of a rich, whit tycoon who adopts the two black boys of his widowed/deceased former housekeeper and raises them as his own. They are closed captioned in English for the deaf thankfully.

Love it,Love it,Love it.This is a gem of a show that stills shines brilliantly today.I remember growing up with this show and this DVD brings back such precious and youthful memories.I don't why some idiot at a network station has not put this in syndication.Today's generation needs clean,wholesome and hearffelt humor and family values badly.I can't wait for the next season.
