Default Received my copy of 'Courtship of Eddie's Father' season 1 today!

I can answer a few questions here. I received my copy today and popped it in to spot check a few things for myself. I had to walk the dog and get ready for a dinner party so I haven't checked out a full episode. Now it's not the dog that is in my picture profile (she passed away last summer and would make that face on command which was funny), however she has similar reactions when I don't pay attention to her.

Here are some initial observations:

-what I checked looks great! There's some dust and debris on a few spots but I kinda like that as it gives it a vintage quality. They do look remastered.
-I can't confirm running time as I haven't watched a full episode
-the 4 or 5 episodes I checked all have the original theme PLUS the 'Courtship of Eddie's Father IN COLOR' card at the beginning which is always a nice touch.
-markway895; I have ordered several MODs from Warner (Abbott and Costello movies, the Shaft TV movies, Our Gang, Joe McDoakes) etc. and have never had playback issues with any of them. I never played them on a computer but have played them both on my main tv and a little portable DVD player I own.

I've been enjoying Family Affair (I was a little behind on that one and just picked up the complete series) and similar to that show, 'Eddie's Father' always seemed to be a class show to me. I have fond memories of it watching in reruns and am glad to have it in my collection.

Now off to stuff myself and back later to watch an episode or two if I don't fall asleep

This DVD set is EVERYTHING (other than maybe bonus material) that anyone could ask for. Full length ABC network versions (with even the "IN COLOR" slide at the beginning), great picture quality, decent-level audio. Here's hoping season 2 and 3 follow soon!

Walmart, Target & Best Buy do not have it in my area, so I guess I'll have to order it from Amazon. Has anyone actually seen it in a store? Just wondering.

This set is only available through Warner's MOD (Manufactured on Demand) Program. Not available in stores, although Amazon has a listing for it.

When an old TV show I haven't seen in a long time comes out on DVD, I'm often tempted to make the purchase but in the case of Courtship Of Eddie's Father, I prefer Bill Bixby in My Favorite Martian and Brandon Cruz doesn't really appeal to me. So I'll pass on this, but for those interested in these DVD's it's nice season 1 is available.

Very impressed with the video quality. They've cleaned them up nicely. A few special features would have been nice, but having quality/unedited episodes is probably the most important thing to people.

Did anybody notice they put "James Womack" instead of James Komack on the back of the case? Hopefully that is something that they can easily correct.

Amazon.com has a pre-order listing at a higher price than WBShop.com:

Did anybody also notice (at least on most of the episodes; evidently later it was corrected) that in the end credits, the music is "Sunged" by Nilsson. Sunged? Who came up with that?

Maybe Eddie wrote the credits? It was always sunged pretty good. I noticed that too. ha ha

I'm so glad this show came out and according to the podcast all the episodes were remastered so I hope that bodes well for a S2 and S3 release. I'll pick up whatever they release on this one.

Default Brandon Cruz Wants Recognition for Bill Bixby

Warner Archive just put out the remastered Season 1 episodes. Also on Amazon now. I loved this show. Was talking to Brandon Cruz about it for publication in BeckSmithHollywood.com and he said his whole reason for publicizing DVD was to try and correct shameful omission of Bill Bixby from Hollywood Walk of Fame and TV Academy honors. He's right. Bixby deserves to be recognized.
