"Let me answer everyone's question as to why only these episodes were chosen....the producer of this DVD did NOT pay any royalties on these episodes!!! Due to an error many years ago, these episodes slipped into the public domain, as therefore, are being produced without any authorization or payment of royalites to the owners of the show.Let me tell you that each and every episode will be available in the next several months - created from original copies of the show for the highest quality...and they will be produced will the full knowledge of Carl Reiner and Dick Van Dyke.So, don't lose your sense of humor or your thumbs!! But keep an eye out for the entire collection of 158 shows sometime very soon."
Great show, poor copy

"there's no question that The Dick Van Dyke Show will always be a landmark in Television Comedy. The stories and characters are as timeless today as when the show premiered 40 years ago. Our only complaint about this Canadian DVD is that the quality is not very good. It seems to be copied from 16mm prints, rather than the original film. It's also only 6 episodes. We have heard that the authorized anniversary edition of all 158 episodes is being released soon and it will be great to see DVD on DVD."
Great - But where's the rest!

"It's good to see DVD on DVD. The quality of this DVD is decent, however, I'm not sure how or why they chose the six episodes. "The Night the Roof Fell In" and "Never Name a Duck" are the two best on the DVD. I would have preferred more of the classic episodes such as Ghost of A. Chanz, or Coast to Coast Big Mouth. Looking forward to the entire 158 episode set to be released. In the mean time, this one will do!"
A CLASSIC STILL SHINES...

"Wonderful family entertainment, and the 15 Emmy Awards this show won were well deserved. The six episodes included are "Never Name A Duck", "Bank Book 6565696", "Hustling the Hustler", "The Night The Roof Fell In", "A Man's Teeth Are Not His Own", and "Give Me Your Walls". Top-notch source material too, and all shows are complete with credits."
Chasin' crumbs of carrots!!!

"This DVD is a mere sprinkling of what the actual series has to offer it's fans. Although the quality is far better than the typical VHS copy (from cable) that we are all used to, it's still far from the quality that is possible. It is a real novelty to be able to choose what episode you want with a click from the remote, and not have to edit out commercials etc. Don't expect any extras from this DVD. There are NONE. Then again, this show has always withstood the test of time and technology by having a brilliant story performed by brilliant actors. No glitz, just glamour."
