I ordered The Real McCoys first season as soon as I saw it come out. What fun, I guess I am dating myself but who cares!. I just got season two and its even better, By the second season they really got off the ground, good story lines and great acting by everyone. I have always loved Walter Brennan, and Richard Crenna. Buy these, you will not be disappointed. Just so much fun watching.

This copy of The Real McCoys - Season 2 has been very good for viewing. I have not finished watching every episode yet, but my wife and myself have enjoyed each episode thus far. The quality of the DVD is great. Couldn't ask for anything better.

The 224 half-hour episodes (all in B&W) of the situation comedy "The Real McCoys" ran from 1957-1963 on ABC and CBS. The show's creators/producers were Irving and Norman Pincus, a pair of brothers with little other claims to fame.

But they left quite a legacy with "The Real McCoys" as the series literally changed the direction of network situation comedy. Early sitcoms like "I Love Lucy", "The Honeymooners", "Make Room for Daddy", and "The Goldbergs" were urban in tone and set in downtown apartments in big east coast cities; urban families were the first buyers of televisions. By the mid-fifties suburbia was getting a lot play ("Life of Riley", "Leave It to Beaver") as Americans began moving out to the suburbs. But network executives were resistant to the idea of rural characters in rural setting. Rural families were unlikely to own televisions (or have television stations within broadcast range) and urban sophisticates could not be expected to tune into a show featuring rural rubes.

When "The Real McCoys" proved the suits wrong it set the stage for Andy of Mayberry, Jed in Beverly Hills, Kate and the Shady Rest, and Oliver and Lisa in Hooterville. Danny Thomas and Paul Henning who would launch those shows were both involved in "The Real McCoys".

The premise of the show is the move of the legendary West Virginia McCoys to a farm in the San Fernando Valley they inherit from their uncle. Given the current value of valley real estate it is amusing that one of the central conflicts of the series is the family's precarious financial position (insert lack of money here).

The McCoy family is a bit unusual as it skips an entire generation.

I have not seen this series since I was a child? Over the 50 odd years since I last saw it, I had developed fond memories of Grandpa McCoy, the character played by Walter Brennan. After watching many of the episodes again, I am still surprised by what a mean, unfeeling, inconsiderate snake he could be. The quality of the DVDs is generally good, though the occasional episode does contain video and audio flaws. Much of the material seems dated now, but this is still an interesting glimpse into early TV comedy.

I remember watching this series on TV as a very young boy in the 1950's. It was a great sitcom back then, and it still is a great sitcom. Walter Brennan was the star of the show, but the other cast members were perfect for their roles.

And the good news is that it was just announced that Season Three is being released on June 17, 2008. That makes three more seasons to go!

I hadn't seen this series in over fifty years. I have bought the whole six seasons and have thoroughly enjoyed the series. This is TV as it used to be when the family could watch an enjoyable half hour and come away with a good life-lesson. Get it before it's gone. Show your kids what TV is supposed to look like.

I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my Father because he loves old movies. Packaging was excellent and I'm glad there is a place where I can find old movies for my Dad that I haven't even heard of, haha! I was very pleased with this purchase and he was very pleased when he opened it on Christmas!
