Default My Three Sons - The First Season - Volume Two DVD Review

The Douglas family is back for Volume 2 of The First Season of My Three Sons! The three disc set contains the final 18 episodes of the first season of the 60s sitcom. Steve Douglas is a widower that is raising his three sons (Mike, Rob, and Chip) with the help of Grandpa Bub (William Frawley). The series began in 1960 on ABC and ended up lasting for over a decade, eventually having several cast changes and moving over to rival network CBS. These episodes are where it all started.

Please post any questions or comments about this set.

Why can't they just release whole season instead of breaking it up? Father Knows Best and Donna Reed were not broken up.

I think we can all agree about them breaking up the season like that. Hopefully they wont do that to the rest of the series.

Either way I miss this show. I saw it first on WGN and then on Nick at Nite, the good ole days for me.

Question

Yeah, what's the deal with some of these shows splitting up seasons? They didn't do that to Bewitched, Green Acres, etc.

Cool

The other factor with these older series is that they made a lot more episodes per season back then. This means it takes more disks and higher production costs to produce a full season of an older series like this. So naturally companies use this as an excuse to divide seasons into two volumes in order to generate higher revenues to cover the higher cost. This doesn't mean I agree with this practice only my attempt at explaining it.

The Capitol Hi-Q, better known as John Seely Associiates [of Looney Tunes fall 10958 "infamy" and many others shows at the time, like Augie Doggie, You Tube has a lot.] Many composers contributed to it-Phil Green-as in the Snooper and Blabber cue that opens many of the older ones, Jack Cookerly, Jack Shaindlin, William Loose, Emil Cadkin-who is apparently alive and suing himself or something, or whatever, to obtain rights, Harry Bluestone, etc.

I've collected a lot of this, thru e-mail and some antique stores seem to have this. Same with Gumby and H-B, etc. with some recent major happy exceptions [2005's "Huckleberry Hound" DVD from Warner Bros.DVD and 2007's "Gumby Essentials" from Classic Media, though that has the blah later 80s episodes][, and the 1980s reshowings of latter named franchise.

There are some online official sites like Play Production Music & The APM music site, which has Carlin {Cadkin, Loose, etc.] cues and Cinemusic [Jack Shaindlin],etc. If you're a fan of My Three Sons, you may recongize a lot, and Rhino Pic-a-nic basket {Hanna-Barbera] in 1990s had the "Phil Green" cues credited to John Seely of Capitol during a 1958 musicians strike at Warners, like the Sons open [first part of Snooper and Blab open..] Augie Doggie used a tearjerker cue I saw under William Frawley in one episode where he is watching TV.

Of course Frank DeVol [Brady Bunch, Fernwood 2Night] later did the music.So many seasons, so many episodes, so much time, one season, two volumes..

Well, as I said, the stock music of John Seely, though not billed [if you've ever seen "Weasel While You Work" [9-27], "A Bird in a Bonnet" [10-11], "Hook Line & Stinker" [10-11], "Pre-Hysterical Hare" [11-1], "Gopher Broke" [11-15], and "Hip Hip Hurry" [12-6], all 1958 Warner Bros. cartoons during a 1957-58 music strike in Los Angeles and Hollywood, or "Davey and Goliath" from Art Clokey, the creator of Gumby and Pokey, you'll know the name John Seely], is tied up. See my other post.

[That's a longtime interest of mine...the QUick Draw, Augie, Snoop and Blab shorts of Hanna-Barbera have my favorites, including the open that is used on many "Bub" Sons shows. Many educational flicks used it and it was in fdact tailored for industrial films, accoridng to composer Jack C.Cookerly ["TV's Biggest Hits", Jon Burlingame, Shcirmer, po.12.]

BTW There's nothing wrong if you've got a fascination for that soundtrack music, myself and many others exposed to it [used as mentioned EVERYWHERE back in the 1950s and 1960s!] do as well!
