Good clean family entertainment.

Good clean family entertainment. I wasn't born when this show was on TV but I still love it. Some have complained that some of the earlier episodes in the box set are of poor visual and audible quality. To be honest they are not as bad as people make out, and bear in mind these were made in about 1962, when there was no HD quality that we see today. Besides, I think the old black and white episodes, even though not the best quality, add to the nostalgia of it all.
I think both actors are great in it, but I really do feel that Harold Corbett, who played the "& Son" really made the show what it was, actor wise. He was sinmply fantastic. I was shocked to read that he died before the older guy. I don't think he was much past 50 when he died.
Made when when all the tree-hugging political brigade were not about there are some references made that might cause some to suck all the air out of the room, but it was just part of the way it was back then. It wasn't intended to shock or offend.
I recommend fans of the series get this box set.
