A Classic! Dick Van Dyke the early years, was great as he wa

"Really Good Buy. A must have DVD for fans.
If you love the comic antics of the Dick Van Dyke Show, then you'll love his earlier material that got him to stardom. Well selected acts that show the true talent of this man. 'Pet Cat' is my favorite where he acts like an old ladys cat. The old time commercials are hilarious and shamelessly plugged into his 1959 panel show 'Laugh Line'. A very unique look into that era.

Two Thumbs UP!"
Dick Van Dyke - An Early Genius

"This was a surprisingly amazing DVD. I always knew Dick Van Dyke was a comic genius, but thanks to Pat Boone - you can see that it was just in his nature to be funny, creative and incredibly nimble!
This DVD shows the origional broadcast versions of Dick's song and Dance (With Pat and Shirly Jones), skit Comedey (Laurel and Hardy) and the vinettes of story telling with only the imense limberness of Mr. Van Dyke and sound effects.
I can't believe his amazing talents. The sound and video are of the original quality of the original broadcast - but it was preserved well.
Thanks to Pat Boone who obviously released the rights and saved and organized the footage with even intros to explain what and when you are watching.
There are even bonus sketches that show rare sides of how Dick Van Dyke can alter his own comedy and make it even more funnier!
If you like Variety Shows (I.E. Carol Burnett) and watching a great performer doing what he does best - this is your DVD. For the price -it is well worth it!
I am amazed at what this Comedy Genius can do! 4-21-09"
If you have money to burn.

"This is a series of sketches by Dick Van Dyke.

I am a big fan of Dick Van Dyke, the Dick Van Dyke Show, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, and Mary Poppins. Mr. Van Dyke has a talent for pantomime and physical comedy among many talents. The most interesting number for me was Dick Van Dyke and the lovely Shirley Jones singing a duet. There wasn't anything on this that wowed me. I have limited funds and would rather have spent my money on something else. If money is no object; then there is some nostalgia here."

"This are the early years in black and white. See how limber he was before the Dick Van Dyke show. True fans will love this video."
