The earliest tv shows in this compilation, "The Lucy Show", "Petticoat Junction" and "The Beverly Hillbillies" are certainly nostalgic, taking you back to the days when the world was so much slower - and black and white ... reminding me of the movie Pleasantville.
In 2008, Paramount Studio released the first Christmas compilation - 'Holiday Treats' - also three and a half hours long and featuring eight holiday-themed sit-coms. Thanks to Paramount, we can just pop in a DVD and enjoy watching Christmas episodes of the popular old television sit-coms.
This DVD - 'Christmas Treats' and the 2008 release, 'Holiday Treats' are being sold together as TV Sets: Holiday - A Christmas Comedy Value pack for about the same price as the individual discs.
If you are now building a collection of holiday themed old sit-coms then you'll want to own both DVDs! So, save time and order the TV Sets: Holiday - A Christmas Comedy Value pack. Watching these retro Christmas tv shows can be a nice holiday interlude. Who knows? This may be the start of a 'new' holiday tradition at your home! :)
NOTE: These Paramount Studio DVDs feature 'old school' television, so the format is fullscreen (4:3) NTSC. Back then, the only widescreens were the movie theaters' silver screens! On both Paramount Studio DVDs - 'Christmas Treats' and 'Holiday Treats' - the picture quality is good (understandably improving with the 'newer' 70's and 80's episodes). The picture quality is even better if these discs are played on a DVD player with upconversion or on a blu-ray DVD player.
The audio will not test your 7.1 surround sound home theater (this is of course, retro television)! Audio Specs for 'Christmas Treats' DVD: Dolby Digital 2.0 Mono, Dolby Surround 2.0 (only for the 'new' 1982 production of Cheers). English Subtitles (for the Hearing Impaired).
I ALSO RECOMMEND the 2009 DVD release by Shout Factory Studio featuring seven holiday-themed retro tv shows. Merry Sitcom! Christmas Classics from TV's Golden Age is a great buy with almost three hours of classic television sampled in clear video and audio.
2011 UPDATE: Pick up this retro TV DVD - That 70s Show - Holiday Edition
