No complaints on this purchase. Quality is very good and I believe the episodes are all complete. There are rumours that all the Ozzie and Harriet shows will be officially released soon though I'll believe it when I see it. For now, this set is worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essentially Good! Dec 13 2012

Although Amazon.ca claimed that delivery of this dvd set may be between 1 to 2 months- I ordered it anyway. I'm very happy to say that (super saver) delivery had it here in my hands after only 1 week of placing the order.

This is the most comprehensive "Ozzie & Harriet" dvd set on the market, and boasts
100 episodes (many with original commercials in tact) on 12 dvds. Each dvd is in it's own windowed envelope with episode titles and airdates printed on each dvd. The 12 enveloped dvds are numbered, stacked, and housed in a thicker than usual dvd case, but quite necessary.

After sampling various discs, I can confirm that these are film prints, but are very watchable. Some episodes are edited, some aren't. This 2009 Mill Creek tribute to the Nelson family, is a fine edition to any die hard fan of the series. You can actually witness the passing of time, trends, styles and music as these 100 (b/w) episodes take you from 1952 to 1966.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Collection of Ozzie & Harriet Episodes on DVD Aug. 6 2007
By Robert Huggins - Published on Amazon.com
Let me begin this review by saying that this isn't the best looking DVD collection of "The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet" on the market; that honor goes to The Best of the Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet collection from Shout! Factory that was produced in cooperation with surviving members of the Nelson family, and which features the best looking transfers of the series as well as numerous extra features. That said, this set from Mill Creek Entertainment certainly gives you a healthy serving of the series' run (100 episodes of a series total of 435) and represents the largest collection of Ozzie & Harriet episodes available on DVD in a single collection. Incidentally, this is a greatly expanded version of Mill Creek's earlier Ozzie & Harriet Classics (4pc) collection of 38 episodes.

The episodes are not restored and very definitely of the audio/visual quality associated with public domain releases (which this collection is), but I've watched about half of the episodes in this collection and have to say that the vast majority of the episodes are highly watchable. A few of the episodes are syndicated versions running as little as 20 minutes (ironically, the episode titled "Be On Time" has the 20 minute running time), but the majority are full length versions, many of which are complete with original commercials and network IDs and running in excess of 29 minutes. By contrast, all of the episodes in the official collection from Shout! Factory are edited, syndicated versions running, on average, around 22 and a half minutes. Rick Nelson fans will be delighted to know that most musical numbers are included in this set. So in addition to seeing a great family comedy, you get a chance to see the evolution of one of rock & roll's early superstars. It also appears that the episodes are in chronological order, suggesting that Mill Creek actually researched the series for this release (atypical for most companies releasing public domain material).

The episodes are spread across 12 single-sided discs, with each disc containing eight to nine episodes and featuring a simple menu selection that allows you to either play all episodes or select the specific episode that you wish to view. Each disc is housed in its own cardboard folder; in turn, the 12 discs are housed in a laminated cardboard package that has a full listing of the episode titles on the back of the box. There are no DVD extras per se but, as mentioned above, the vast majority of the episodes contain original commercials and/or sponsor tags. It's fun to watch the Nelson family hawk products for Kodak, Quaker Oats and others. If there's a negative to this set, I suppose that it's the Mill Creek logo which appears briefly in the bottom right corner twice in each episode. The good news is that it's relatively unobtrusive and really won't detract much from your viewing experience. Viewers should also be aware that episodes from the show's 14th and final season were originally filmed in color; here they are presented in black & white.

The fact that Mill Creek has been able to assemble 100 episodes of this beloved family comedy series at a very affordable price is commendable. No other company has been able to bring this many episodes to the market in a single package. What makes this set even better is the inclusion of a number of episodes from the show's earlier years. Most of the Ozzie & Harriet collections of public domain episodes focus on the show's years from the 1960s when David and Ricky were in college, married, and later started their careers. There are plenty of those episodes in this set, but the inclusion of so many episodes from the 1950s when the boys were younger really distinguishes this set from the other Ozzie & Harriet collections that are available and, as such, makes this the definitive collection to own . . . . . at least until such time that someone issues something better.

This set is a must for fans of "The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet" and to those who appreciate warm-hearted family humor from a simpler time. My rating on this is closer to **** & , just missing the full five stars due a few beat-up looking prints included in this set. But, rest assured, you will not be disappointed if you purchase "The Essential Ozzie & Harriet Collection."

5.0 out of 5 stars "Flying Down to Lunch" Aug. 20 2007
By R. L. Towler - Published on Amazon.com
Wonderful set!, some episodes are better quality than others, but it's all still very watchable. A few have been edited, but most of them are not. I really like the commercials. Kodak; Quaker Oats, Aunt Jemima, Hot Point, Coke, and even Listerine!, Some of them even have the Nelson family members doing the ads! The Anita Bryant Coca-Cola commercials are a must see! Also, I thought I'd mention that the "Flying Down to Lunch" episode is actually the episode; "The T-Shirts" from Season 8. That said and done; I highly recommend this set to Ozzie & Harriet fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Collection Oct. 5 2007
By Vic Chester - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I recently purchased the Essential Ozzie and Harriet Collection and have to say that it exceeds my expectations. I have not viewed all 100 episodes but those that I did are very watchable and very funny. This is a 12 disc set and I had a problem with several of the discs that I received in the original shipment from Amazon. They made a high pitch spinning noise in my OPPO DVD player. I contacted Amazon customer service and they immediately shipped me out a replacement set. It was a real pleasure dealing them them. They really seem to care about their customers. I received the second set in two days and had similar problems with other discs. Mind you again all were watchable. I again contacted Amazon Customer Service and they offered to refund my money or ship a third set. I told them to standby and I contacted Mill Creek to discuss the problem I was having. The customer service people at Mill Creek were also excellent and immediately shipped out the three disc's that I was having a problem with. They solved the problem.

Both Amazon and Mills Creek showed that they really care about there customers and stand 100% behind their products.

I continue to watch the set several times a week and have enjoyed each episode. Some even have the original commercials in them. I highly recommend the set to any Ozzie and Harriet fan.

2.0 out of 5 stars A plea for restoration. Dec 7 2009
By Leo F. Nolan II - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This comment is primarily for the benefit of those who came of age after the era of black-and-white television. In my opinion, the picture quality in this set ranges from fair to horrible (black tones totally gone). Even in those portions I rate as "fair," much of the background detail is indistinct or muddy. The sound quality generally is decent, however. Despite these deficiencies, this 100 episode set is worth $11.49, the steeply discounted price. As others have noted, the original commercials are a nice bonus.

It is a shame that so much of our television heritage has been allowed to degrade to this state. If you would like to see what a black-and-white television program of the same era looks like when properly restored, watch "I Love Lucy" on DVD. Almost as good is "Perry Mason." Given that "The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet" ran almost three times longer than "I Love Lucy," let's hope that this series will be properly restored and offered in season sets.
