OK, here's the scoop: this is the best Andy Griffith Show DVD out there, but that's not exactly saying much. However, I do highly recommend you buy this set of 2 dvd's. Also, most of the previous reviews are incorrect, even the ones saying the others are incorrect. Here are the details...
THE PRO'S:
This 2 dvd set is double sided, so there are 16 total episodes. The theme music on MOST of the shows is original, which really surprised me--and pleased me. The picture quality is good enough to get by.
THE CON'S:
Some good special features would be nice; this only lists a short history of the show & actors. No subtitles. On about 6 of the shows, the introduction music seems to be the same "tune" as the ending music. I don't know if this was originally what was done on the show, or if the DVD producers did this...but I hardly noticed it in any case. BUT...on two of the shows the theme music was altogether re-made (and poorly done, might I add!) This is contrary some of the other reviews I've seen...they've not watched all the episodes. Also, the picture quality, especially at the beginning & end, is ever so slightly sub-par. Again, this could be because of the master tapes, but the other dvd I own has better picture quality on the same episodes...you have to wonder.
So...is this the Andy Griffith show DVD you've always been wanting? ... NO!
Is there anything better currently out there on DVD? ... NO!
Will you be making a wise decision if you buy this set? ... ABSOLUTLEY YES YES YES!

Well, I just received this DVD 5 pack in the mail today and am I ever disappointed. I watched about two minutes before deciding to return this DVD set. But, according to the return policy, DVD must be returned unopened, so I guess I'm out of luck. But I can at least warn you to lower your expectations in regards to old shows/movies released in the DVD format. So far I have ordered Abbot and Costello and Andy Griffith DVDs from Amazon, and was hoping for a picture a least equal to broadcast quality. However, in both cases the picture is horrendous. These Andy Griffith DVD versions contain only two episodes per DVD, and the theme song has been deleted (as stated in a previous review). The pictures have not been cleaned of dust, etc, and they obviously aren't using the first generation master prints. I think my plan now will be to buy a DVD recorder when they become available, and tape the Andy Griffith shows off of TV Land, minus commercials. That seems to be the only way to get a great picture, no commercials, the episodes you truly want, and more than two episodes per DVD! As stated in the other reviews, these DVDs are a rip-off. I don't know what that one guy was thinking when he gave these DVD 5 stars. Unfortunately, that was the only review available when I made the mistake to order this DVD set.

I saw that some of the reviews listed for the Brentwood Home Video release of these episodes on DVD are incorrect. This review is specifically for the 16 episode, 2 disc set made by Brentwood Home Video:
Sound and picture quality on these discs is very good. There are no major scratches on the film prints as seen on some other DVDs. Every episode is complete and uncut. The original theme music is used on every show and there are no company logos embedded on the image to distract you as on other discs. Basically, you get all 16 public domain episodes, uncut, with decent picture and sound quality in one 2-disc set. They are simply the best DVDs of these episodes currently available...

I grew up just after the shows original run ended and watched this show frequently in syndication. It is a great show that blends comedy, drama and moral lessons. In recent years I have tried to tape the entire 8 year show off of tv and have found that usually several minutes of the show are cut out to make room for more commercials. This really ticks me off!! When a show like TAGS is already made to fit commercials in why do tv and cable stations feel the need to remove 3 to 5 minutes of the show to fit in additonal commericals?
Anyway, I've looked forward to TAGS on DVD and recently my wife purchased this 16 episode 2 DVD package for me. My version does not have the original theme song during the opening and ending credits but rather some poorly done replacement tune. This is a real downer as I, like everyone else, enjoy the original theme song. It helps set the mood for TAGS. However, the shows themselves are fine and the picture quality good. It also has the complete shows.
My version of this DVD has some retro commercials in between some of the episodes. It also has some old cartoons such as POPEYE between the episodes. I rather enjoy these old commercials and cartoons. It reminds me of my childhood when I would watch TAGS in the afternoon in syndication followed by the afternoon cartoons.
So while I eagerly await a boxed set of season by season episodes of TAGS along with the original theme this DVD will tide me over.

When I purchased this DVD, I brought it home and put it in the player with eager anticipation. "What a great deal", I thought, "$... for 16 awesome episodes of this classic series!"...
Boy, was I disappointed. What a let-down! The video quality is poor, but the most disappointing thing of all is that the original theme music has vanished!!! I sat in disbelief as I saw Andy and Opie walking and skipping stones to some campy, MIDI-generated, "we're not going to waste money to buy the original music" theme song. The show's contents are, in my opinion, heavily damaged by this musical compromise. To me, it isn't worth owning. I gave my copy away.....
It seems that some people are completely satisfied with "collections" like these, noting that "the music doesn't matter, it's the shows that count." I say this: The theme music is an INTEGRAL part of the mood of this whole series, as many people will attest, and therefore IS the show.
C'mon, if relatively new shows like "Friends" and "Mad About You" can be released properly (i.e., entire uncut seasons in a set), why can't we have a GOOD, definitive collection of this perennial classic?
By the way: in retrospective, I would gladly have paid a couple of dollars more for this set had I known that the original theme was intact!
