Product Description

That Girl ran five seasons on ABC (following Bewitched) from 1966-1971 at a time when the three broadcast networks captured 95% of the viewing audience. Marlo Thomas’ character, Ann, was groundbreaking as an independent female forging her own way and forever changed the manner in which women were portrayed on TV, influencing the development of many of the other successful female-lead shows that followed, from The Mary Tyler Moore Show to Kate & Allie and more.

Wildly popular, That Girl received four Emmy® nominations, as well as a Golden Globe Award for Thomas for Best TV Star Actress. The That Girl cast included Ted Bessel (Hollinger), Ruth Buzzi, George Carlin, Dabney Coleman, Rosemary DeCamp and Lew Parker (Lou Marie) and featured such notable guest stars as Milton Berle, Ethel Merman, Carl Reiner and Danny Thomas (Marlo's father).

This 5-DVD box set features all 30 half-hour episodes from the historic first season plus:
• Original That Girl pilot episode
• "The Making Of That Girl Featurette" with Marlo Thomas
• That Girl Promos
• That Girl In New York with Marlo Thomas and Bill Persky
• Audio commentaries with Marlo Thomas and Bill Persky

In the flapper era, Clara Bow was the It girl. In the liberated 1960s, Marlo Thomas was all That. Her groundbreaking character, Ann Marie, opened the door for a new generation of independent women on TV who just might make it after all. Ann was not a wife, mother, daughter, girlfriend, ditzy neighbor, sidekick, or fantasy object (neither genie nor witch). She was something new and contemporary, an aspiring actress who leaves home to pursue her career in New York City. "You did a wonderful job helping me grow up, but now I'm up," she sweetly tells her overprotective parents (an Emmy-worthy Lew Parker and Rosemary DeCamp) in "Goodbye, Hello, Goodbye." That Girl was not a total break from TV convention. In this inaugural season, she has a kinda kooky neighbor and Rhoda-antecedent, Judy (Bonnie Scott). And she has a boyfriend, magazine writer Donald Hollinger (Ted Bessell), whom she meets cute in the first aired episode, "Don't Just Do Something, Stand There." Ann and Donald are one of TV's great comedy teams. They have a delightful Barefoot in the Park-like chemistry, with Ann the vivacious, more free-spirited one, and Donald the more practical one. One of their best episodes is "Anatomy of a Blunder," in which Donald suffers every disaster and indignity en route to meet Ann's father for the first time. Thomas was honored with a Golden Globe award for this season, and the series established her as "talented, unusual, a bright new face" (to quote the want ad Ann is desperate to answer in "You Have to Know Someone to Be an Unknown").

One of the other kicks of reuniting with That Girl is the stellar roster of veteran character actors and future stars. Dabney Coleman, Bernie Kopell (Get Smart, The Love Boat), and Ronnie Schell (Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.) are regulars this season. Guest stars include Sally Kellerman and George Carlin in "Break a Leg," Rob Reiner and "Terry" Garr in "This Little Piggy Had a Ball" (the inevitable bowling-ball-stuck-on-the-toe episode), and a pre-All in the Family Carroll O'Connor as an amorous opera singer in "A Tenor's Loving Care." That Girl is so-'60s, but as with The Dick Van Dyke Show, on which series creators Sam Denoff and Bill Persky previously worked, the literate, character-driven comedy holds up remarkably well. --Donald Liebenson

This set is a big box of eye candy and I'm so pleased to have it.

That Girl is a television series that aired from 1966-1971. Shout Factory recently released That Girl season one on DVD. The colorful five disc set includes all thirty episodes from the shows first season. The picture and sound quality is great on the episodes.

If That Girl was before your time let me refresh your memory. The set includes the pilot episode. In this episode Ann Marie is seen in the big city pursuing her acting career. She is working at a counter when she is spotted by film makers looking for a last minute actress. On her lunch break she decides to look at a desk that is for sale and she crosses paths with a man named Don who is also interested in the desk. They cross paths later in the evening while she is filming a kidnapping scene and he thinks she is being kidnapped for real and he tries to rescue her. Everything works out fine and Ann Marie and Donald become boyfriend and girlfriend.

Although That Girl aired in the 1960's, it really opened the door for women sitcom stars. This show was before Mary Tyler Moore and decades before shows like Murphy Brown, Blossom, Ally McBeal, Ellen,Grace Under Fire and Suddenly Susan. The situations that Ann Marie finds herself in our themes that became common in the Hollywood sitcom. Babysitting woes, minor court cases, problems with parents, and much more.

This is a really great set and one of the best TV on DVD sets Shout has ever released. It's so bright and colorful and full of bonus features. Bonus material includes:

-Original That Girl Pilot Episode

-That Show...That Woman...The Creation Of That Girl with Marlo Thomas

-That Girl promos

-That Girl in New York with Marlo Thomas and Bill Persky

-Audio commentaries with Marlo Thomas and Bill Persky

I am having such a good time watching these shows again. In 1966, I was 11 years old, but I remember loving this show. Yes, the clothes! New York City! Donald! And Marlo Thomas looks fabulous. How pretty she is and the show is hilarious. The packaging on this box set is eye candy and the extras are great. This is how a DVD TV show set should be. My 15 year old daughter is already in love with Ann Marie. And this is the kind of show you can enjoy with your kids. Heck, even my hubby loves this show. A great price for such wonderful memories! Get this NOW!

I am so glad that this series is being released. I have waited for it forever. This, in my opinion, was one of the best shows of the 60's. Ann Marie is a classic.

This is by far the best release of a sitcom from the 60's I've seen yet. (Second only to the Dick Van Dyke Show) Perfectly restored episodes, guides with orignal air dates in the packaging, and plenty of extras, and a great price on top of that make this a bargain for any fan of "That Girl".

The situations are as funny as they've ever been. My wife was never a fan of the show, but she watched a couple episodes with me and was laughing out loud.

The extras include an interview with Marlo about the creation of the show. There is also a short with much of the outdoor shots taken in New York that were woven into the episodes with commentary on how they did that. On top of that, they include the never-aired pilot!!!

The packaging is bright and colorful and of similar quaility to the "Everybody Loves Raymond" sets.

If you were ever a fan of this show, you will not be disappointed with this set, and Amazon has the best price by far.

Beautiful Marlo Thomas ranks among the most delightful sitcom heroines of all time - she was consistently nominated for the Best Comedy Actress Emmy honor for this series and should have won at least once. I loved this program growing up mainly because Marlo is so appealing in the part as the aspiring actress who can't seem to get a major break. THAT GIRL was one of ABC's few major hits during the 1960's, there were far fewer ABC stations at the time and the best programs from the network were often picked up by NBC or CBS stations and shown in their non-network time slots, this is how I saw the show when I was young. As I grew up and became a fan of old movies, I could see the influence of the classic romantic comedies of Claudette Colbert and Carole Lombard on this show and of course THAT GIRL was a pioneer TV program with a "working girl" heroine. I cannot wait to get this DVD set and hear Marlo gasp once again in her slightly raspy voice "Oh, Donald!"

As I was going through Amazon's now sadly lacking excuse of streaming options, I saw the picture of the pink cover with "that girl" with the flipped out hair, I smiled, laughed quietly and told my sister about it.

The reason I smiled and laughed quietly is because I really only remember glimpses of Ann and Don. I wasn't even a year old when the first show aired, so my memories have to be from episodes from the later seasons or, more likely, from repeats my siblings watched.

I watched the entire first season in just a few days. I was pleased at how entertaining it is. Even 50 years later the story lines could be from this century and this decade. It's refreshing to watch a clean show, where kissing is as sexual as it gets. Too many writers rely solely on sex to create a create a comedy these days. They could learn a thing or two by watching this show and others from this era.

This show made me laugh out loud. I am amazed at how funny the show is. I truly expected to watch "That Girl" and be a little entertained and certainly didn't expect to laugh as much as I did.

I really hope seasons 2 to 5 are released because I'll happily watch them all.
