"This is a 4-disc set of 50's era TV sit-coms, variety and drama for the Christmas season. An added bonus is a link for a Virtual Fireplace that you can keep on the screen while listening to music,wrapping presents, trimming the tree, etc. Cozy.
This set is one of the best values I have seen for the price.
Contents include 5 Christmas episodes of Ozzie and Harriet, 4 of the Beverly Hillbillies, also Christmas episodes of Red Skelton, Jack Benny, Dragnet, Burns and Allen, Abbot and Costello, Petticoat Junction. Variety and music, such as Liberace and Fred Waring. Drama includes Four Star Playhouse, Dickens' A Christmas Carol with Vincent Price, even Sherlock Holmes and a Lux Theatre production of Holiday Affair. Many, many more. I was astounded to see the commercials included with all of the shows, giving it a real 50's feel! Wonderful step back in time! This is truly marvelous entertainment for the Christmas Season. Sit back with a hot mug of cider and some Christmas cookies, with the Christmas tree lights twinkling, curl up and enjoy!!"

"There are so many episodes on this DVD we still haven't seen them all. If you grew up in the 50's and 60's you will remember some of these shows and commercials. We really enjoyed taking a little step back in time. The video quality of some of these episodes is a little rough or I would have given it 5 stars."
