"The Andy Griffith Show is one of my favorite television shows... This DVD is not one of my favorites!! I bought it at Ross (heh...), I was excited and when I got home to watch it was terrible!! Yes, the shows are uncut, and the original air length, but the picture quality would porably sicken you!! If you want to see uncut episodes, you might want to buy this DVD, but if you want good quality, might as wee watch TVLand, or... find a different DVD>"
The best Andy Griffith DVD available!

"Finally some of The Andy Griffith Show episodes have been released on DVD. Sure, these are six of the sixteen episodes that have been in the public domain and available from other companies for years, but the quality of these are the best you're gonna get! And these are the full, uncut versions unlike ones from another company that had released three episodes on DVD. I praise LaserLight for doing what they can to bring classic TV to DVD. A great gift for an Andy fan with a new DVD player. I also suggest LaserLight's DVDs of The Lucy Show and a Christmas Marathon disc which includes episodes of The Beverly Hillbillies, Ozzie and Harriet, and The Jack Benny Show."
Some what disappointed

"As an long time Andy Griffith fan, I was excited to receive this DVD to show my kids. However, I really was expecting the original source material to be broadcast quality like the episodes that WTBS showed several years ago. (They showed episodes that were in mint condition completely uncut, unlike the ones you see in syndication). This looks like they found some old 3/4" copy that was left in the cellar for a several years. The video is dim and washed out but the audio is OK. The opening fishing hole walk is not consistent in each episode and the whistling just doesn't sound like the original (In at least one it's left out completely). But other than that, you just can't beat the story content of these episodes. And besides, my kids didn't pick up any of that stuff that I found offensive!!"
