Lol Danny Thomas Show/Make Room for Daddy

Funny/Crazy thing: Last month for ONLY 2 days, this show was actually LISTED on the COZI-TV programs as DANNY THOMAS! I thought FINALLY since the opening/closing credits say THE DANNY THOMAS SHOW and have included the LAST 2 seasons (season 10 and 11)in their package of episodes that were NEVER available in syndication over the years, but now the listings cruising on my remote and the COZI-TV programs info reverted back as MAKE ROOM FOR DADDY again! Oh well, just thought it was interesting and hoping they would keep it permamently!!! Just wanted to share this with the fans out there!

I'd like to see the first three seasons again, other than on a few public domain DVDs. My guess is that those episodes have never been digitized for modern broadcast. They may never have even been put on videotape.

I actually bought 2 DVD's about 10 years ago of some episodes of the first 3 seasons BUT the picture was so crappy; the quality looked so BAD with scratches and junk throughout, I threw them out. Got them at a 99cent store!

Yeah, public domain stuff usually looks pretty bad. At least they were cheap!

I was really disappointed with the way the picture was horrible but when I was growing up NBC was showing the reruns starting with SEASON 1 up through SEASON 9 until about 1965 then when the show went into syndication in 1967, they only showed Season 5-9. I hounded SFM ENTERTAINMENT (the current owner) to finally ADD seasons 10 and 11 telling them they haven't been aired since 1965 AND THEY DID!!!

I remember watching those NBC reruns, when I could. I used to think it was interesting how the apartment changed from season to season, with only an occasional reference to moving.

Congrats on getting SFM entertainment to show those seasons. Quite an accomplishment, and many people are glad it happened!

Cool! I ALSO was fascinated by the constant change in apartments being a self-proclaimed "maven" on this show, I enjoyed your comment! Yes, several different apartments BUT the LAST apartment was the one they used for the final 3 seasons. Also, season 5/6 was the same and I don't EVER remember any of the characters mentioning a new apartment/location EVER!

The apartment was the same in the final season as in 9 and 10, but I was surprised to see a visible set of stairs appear by magic.

Yep, 5 and 6 were the same. 1 thru 3 were the same, too, but they made small changes each season, I seem to remember.

As I said it's great that SFM made those seasons available to Cozi TV--now it would be great if they would put it out unedited on DVD.

I'd call myself a huge fan of this show. I actually think the Make Room For Daddy versions shown on MeTV several years ago (for seasons 7 thru 9) are better than the Danny Thomas Show versions from Cozi TV, simply because they have around 2 more minutes of show (mostly because they showed the tag scene at the end, which Cozi routinely skips).

One picky thing that bugs me is that the season 5 Make Room For Daddy show opener, which included Sherry Jackson, seems to have totally disappeared.
