Default Kudos to Shout! Factory

Now with Shout Factory picking up the series, Shout is just a distributor they don't do any remastering that would have to be done by Sony. So the season 2 episodes are probably from the same source as currently seen on Antenna TV, but the DVD's have the uncut versions. Some episodes may have a laugh track and some may not.
We should remember that Shout! Factory is not as big as Sony or Paramount. They have brought us many classic shows that we would not have if left to the majors. Mister Ed, The Patty Duke Show, Dennis The Menace, That Girl, etc. The DVD market has been shrinking steadily since 2005. One of my favorites, Pete and Gladys, is controlled by Paramount, and they won't even release the rights to a distributor such as Alpha. (I do have a nice DVD-R set from a private film collector). Such rarities as I'm Dickens...He's Fenster (1962-63) and My Living Doll (1964-65) have been or are going to be released by other independent distributors and Rick Nelson's son is undertaking the restoration and distribution on DVD of the entire 435 episode run of The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet. All these projects are expensive labors of love for those undertaking them. The people involved all work very hard to bring us the best possible versions of these lost shows. Like old classic feature films, many of these shows were allowed to deteriorate in vaults unless they were thrown out and disposed of entirely. I understand that there are very few film records left of the late 50's sitcom Mr. Adams and Eve, a funny show I barely remember which starred Ida Lupino and Howard Duff. So I say let's stop nitpicking about small details on some of these DVDs and just be grateful that we have some record of these fragments of the past to relive and enjoy. End of sermon.

Shout Factory is great there's no disputing that, they have brought several classic shows from the 50's and 60's to DVD while the studios that own these shows are reluctant or not willing to release them. If Sony had continued with Hazel on DVD, it's likely we would have seen restored season 2 episodes like on the season 1 set. But I'm more than happy with Shout Factory's DVD's, at last we have the opportunity to see the uncut episodes instead of the edited ones seen on TV. Season 3 has already been announced, looking forward to that and hopefully seasons 4 and 5 will soon follow.

Leslie and all, you're right, I did hear the applause track on an episode I watched last evening. I watched two and it was at the end of either the episode where Hazel and Mr. B are coming up with new words of the day or the one where Barney the mailman disappears. I actually like the applause track at the end. It's gives the show a warm, homey feeling.

I always thought the laugh and applause tracks used on the Screen Gems shows were rather tastefully done as opposed to others, where someone walks into the room and says "hello" and you get a laugh or a snort. Actually, the ones that really annoyed me were the live audience reactions on 70s shows such as "Happy Days", where the audience seemed to go crazy at every appearance on-screen of Henry Winkler.

Now that I have viewed most of the second season shows, ( I still have 5 to go), I have noticed that most of the later eps in the season do have a laugh track, far more than I would have thought judging from the Antenna TV airings.
