VCI to the rescue! I've just reviewed the two DVDs in this first set and watched the first two shows on disk #1 and am extremely pleased! Knowing how things unfortunately are sometimes done these days, I had feared a poor quality transfer and a certain amount of butchering to have been done, but that's not the case at all, thank goodness!
I recall these shows from my early childhood, and they look and sound exactly as I remember them. Even the elaborate musical score that accompanies the end credits is there, complete and impressive as when brand new. The opening gimmick, where the facing images in the father/daughter photographs talk about each other, are there too--still clever, still cute, still funny! In fact, these shows are exactly as first viewed almost 50 years ago, but thanks to the clever writing (those early TV writers cut their teeth in the demanding medium of radio comedy) and the outstanding talents of Charles Farrell and Gale Storm (sigh!), these shows are still funny and engaging. I couldn't be more pleased!
One last note about the quality. We tend to forget how relatively murky television was in the Fifties. Broadcasting equipment was primitive but improving rapidly.Read more ›
Unfortunately, Vern Albright, Mr. Honeywell, Mrs. O'Detts, and Freddy Wilson have all gone on to TV heaven, but we can still enjoy them over and over again in this wonderful 12 episode set.
For the most part the sound and picture quality are GREAT! If you love classic TV sitcoms from the Fifties, you will love this set.
A few of the classic episodes included are:
-The one where Margie babysits the chimp that likes to attack Vernon!
-Mrs Odetts trying to get the money from her trust fund to buy that fast sports car with the chrome manifold!
-Margie's mental breakdown/The horse that is or isn't there.
-Vern & Margie pose as hillbillies to regain some old stock certificates that have some worth after all.
So don't be a lunkhead like Freddy... be as cool as Mrs. Odetts and pick this one up! If you're a fan of classic TV, you will not be disappointed! If you've never seen this show before, you're in for a real treat.
Keep 'em coming VCI! I'll buy all the Margie on DVD that you can put out there!
Gertrude Hoffman is also a treat as Mrs. Odetts, always dragging Margie into another of her screwball schemes. That Mrs. Odetts is one agile & feisty old Lady. LOL.
As all 195o's sitcoms, it's a bit dated, but still manages to hold up quite well, even today. I'd gladly take this show over all of the garbage on the tube today. To me, it's a timeless time capsule to the infancy of tv comedy when comedy was truly funny & didn't need to resort to tactics of vulgarity to get a laugh. My Little Margie was & still is funny & highly entertaining. Hopefully season sets will be put out at some point, this series deserves to be put back into mainstream syndication on Television as well, rather than to sit on a shelf collecting dust somehwere.

Great fun to watch! Brought back so many memories of watching this in my younger days. Good, clean fun! Very enjoyable!Published 1 month ago by Cindy
A classic! Gale is the star. She can act as spunky Margie and never let up! The sets speak of old tv; simple, bare walls, but this program is about the situations and the actors. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Don Diego Vega
