Default I'm Dickens...He's Fenster - Volume One DVD Review

The past year or so has been big for TV show anniversaries, and we've been seeing plenty of special anniversary releases for all of our favorite shows from the 50s and 60s. But this time, a lesser known series is getting the anniversary treatment...but it is also a series that could have lasted longer if only viewers of the era had the foresight to know that the cast and crew were going to become some of TV's greatest stars in the upcoming years. I'm Dickens...He's Fenster was a series that aired for one season in 1962-1963 on ABC. The series follows Harry Dickens (John Astin) and Arch Fenster (Marty Ingels), two construction workers who were great friends, but not so great at construction. The series offered plenty of great comedy and was lauded by critics at the time, but it aired against stiff competition of the era (including Route 66) and didn't make it beyond one season. It didn't even get a chance to air in syndication with so few episodes. But now, you can have a chance to see this classic gem in I'm Dickens...He's Fenster - Volume One, a three disc set containing the first sixteen episodes of the classic sitcom!

Excellent review!
My copy just arrived and i'm not able to confirm all you said except in the packaging... and that for some reason I got 2 autographed postcards (Ingels and Craig ~ Whoopee! I guess they must have been packed by some Fenster)... Hopefully the first set sells well and we'll see the final part in 2012.

Since Leonard Stern died, I would say a second release would be highly unlikely.
