Woah!

Only complaint I have is that they pressed these so they s-t-r-e-t-c-h to fit the s-c-r-e-e-n.
So, I had to readjust the picture to "NORMAL" to watch The Cleavers in normal proportions.
That said, back in the olden days 39 episodes were filmed, per-season. I have all six seasons,
bought one-season-at-a-time. I, very-much, enjoyed all of the episodes. Probably more than
MOST. In the later years as "The Beaver" grew older, his antics didn't anger ME. When he was
in his various school grades, so was I. Wally SHOULD have been in COLLEGE that last year . . .
as memory serves. I've seen every season, now, but the last two. Memory lane stuff . . . perfect
re-masterings. While Ward Cleaver NEVER smokes on-screen (like in the pilot episode[different
Ward & Wally]). Worth your time watching.
Each season's S=I=X DVDs are filled with PLENTY of ooohs and ahhhs! Real life entertainment!

A perfect time capsule for baby boomers
Verified purchase
I loved this show when I was a kid. I was in Beaver's age group when it was telecast in prime time back in the early 60s It was so refreshing having a TV show that was seen from the kid's point of view, unheard of at the time. It is no wonder it has survived the test of time. I have purchased all six seasons on DVD and whenever I get a little nostalgic, I watch a few episodes and my mind goes back to that innocent time.

Great nostalgia and viewing
Verified purchase
Wonderful collection of a classic television show. I remember this series from my youth and associated myself with Beaver as we were about the same age. I now have all but one of the seasons. All of the actors were great. Miss Landers was one of my first crushes. RIP, Sue Randall, you were beautiful. Hugh Beaumont and Barbara Billingsley were great parents and Tony Dow as Wally was the best brother. I even liked Ken Osmond (RIP) as Eddie Haskell. I enjoyed this show and the DVD played perfectly. It makes me feel young again.

Good Television viewing for the entire family!
Verified purchase
Transfer of all seasons so far of "Leave it to Beaver" over to DVD format has been excellent. I enjoy these early episodes when the Beaver was cute and always getting into trouble. The stories are all golden with a moral to the story that both parents and children seem to learn. This type of television writing was subtle about sending us a message or making us think about everyday life situations. Sitcoms like: Father Knows Best, My Three Sons, and Leave It To Beaver were all excellent about showing us the American way of life. The Andy Griffith show and Real McCoy's also brought family value situations along with comedy to the Television screen. The 60's were a special time for growing up and learning some of these family values which should carry over to this day.

Classic cometh!
Verified purchase
This s was a very good show! Discs played fairly well one broke up once but it didn't bother at least. Each show has a moral for kids and adults to learn by. Beaver gets into all sorts of trouble with his friend Larry. Wally begins to get more interested in girls and Eddie is his typical too polite self to Mrs. Cleaver. So sit down in a comfortable place and enjoy another great season of the classic show. No matter if your old, young or in the middle you can probably connect to many of the shows.

Still wish the dollar was worth as much as the time as these were shot. .75 cents well Christ I can make it the rest of the week. But sadly Americans have been sold a lie and the dollar is actually worth only .04 cent of gold. Nice. Be obedient workers, you are free to do as we tell you, you are free to do as we tell you

LOVE THE SERIES, dislike the way it was released.
Verified purchase
I love the Beav, always have. I watched him when he first premiered on TV and he's still a favorite of mine today in reruns. I've waited a long time to own the series on tape or DVD. My only complaint? Again I'm in the middle of buying a TV series when seemingly out of the blue they release the entire collection at a reduced rate (not only Leave it to Beaver but many others). Now do I sell what I've already bought and buy the complete series or continue on buying individual seasons knowing I'll pay more in the end. If they are going to release the entire series do it first and give me and others who love classic TV a break instead of nickel and diming us to death.

Definitely worth it for a different kind of family night in!
Verified purchase
Quality in picture and sound. Also includes closed captions for my kids. I decided to have them watch some of these old classics and it was difficult with some of the older vernacular that’s used but after 3 episodes, my 10 and 9 year old were hooked and enjoying this classic. Definitely worth it for a different kind of family night in.
