very good show
26 February 2006 | by jynjerbearSee all my reviews

I loved watching this show when I was growing up. I had my Mom record every episode every week. My tapes are now starting to go bad and I am afraid of playing them for fear that the machine will eat them. I have every episode on three VCR tapes including both of the 2 hour movies. I wish that they would come out on DVD so that I can continue enjoying the shows and also show them to my children. I have a five year old that loves to listen to the 50's and 60's music so I know that he will enjoy them. The shows have lessons in each and every one and would feel safe to allow all my children of all ages to watch them. We could sing and dance right along to the music and different dances. I hope that they release the entire series out real soon so that we can enjoy watching a good family show instead of some of the shows they have on TV right now. It's hard to find good shows to watch that I would approve my children to watch. This is a very good show and I would recommend it to everyone.
