HASH(0xa0161d50) out of 5 stars Packaging still stinks, but....... April 25 2012
By L'escribe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
.......you can't beat this great show. Car 54 Where Are You just HAS to be one of the best written, acted and produced comedies in sitcom history. It is terrific television, screamingly funny, and the episodes in Season Two are the carry-over from Season One. Nat Hiken was a comedic genius.

Bad news is: the packaging STILL stinks. As I received and unwrapped mine today, Disc One was loose, and the cheap cardboard packaging is not worthy of this great show. HOWEVER, Shanachie FINALLY got it right as each disc in this set contains the correct episodic order of the shows. HOORAY!!(See my other review for Season One,as I had to literally print out the order that one of the reviewers here was kind enough to list, and I have it attached to the Season One package).

Most of the reviews have covered the shows, so I won't go into detail, but, this season has lots of guest stars, i.e., Shari Lewis (remember Lamb Chop?) Sugar Ray Robinson and even Mitch Miller!! Plus, F-Troop's loveable Corporal Agarn, Larry Storch, is great as Charlie the Drunk, and Molly Picon, a marvelous actress who guested in an episode in Season One, is back as Mrs. Bronson. "Hail to the Chief", the first episode, is terrific in that, those of us who remember the Kennedy Presidency get a treat to see JFK and Jackie at the end. However, the shot was taken before he became President, just after he won the Democratic nomination and they were given a ticker-tape parade in downtown Manhattan. (Jackie was pregnant with JFK Jr. here) Terrific nostalgia, nonetheless.

I still crack up just looking at Toody's (Joe E. Ross) face. Also included in the Season Two set is a Bonus of Joe E. Ross and his stand-up comedy come back audition film. Supposedly, Car 54 retired to the police garage after just two seasons due to Ross' ego (he reportedly got so big-headed nobody wanted to work with him) and also his wanting to go back to stand up. Well, here it is. (And for this they cancelled Car 54?) Judge for yourself.

All in all, I would rather have these two season - eight disc sets to watch again and again when I really need a belly laugh. Today's shows leave a LOT to be desired, which is why, I suspect, everything old (and funny) is new again. This show was and is still, after 50 years, hysterically funny.

Enjoy.

HASH(0xa0ed4cf0) out of 5 stars "There's a scout troop short a child; Khrushchev's due at Idlewild! Car 54, Where Are You?? April 3 2012
By Annie Van Auken - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I was 7 when this classic comedy debuted. Because of its night (school tomorrow!) and starting time (go to bed!!), I never got a chance to see it in first run.
.

CAR 54, WHERE ARE YOU? ran for two seasons, Sunday 8:30 to 9 pm on NBC-TV. Filming was on location and at the pioneer BIOGRAPH studio, a Bronx fixture since 1913. The TV drama NAKED CITY was a Biograph production, as were BUTTERFIELD 8 (1960), ODDS AGAINST TOMORROW (1959) and PRETTY BOY FLOYD (1960). The shuttered studio was destroyed by a 1980 fire and renovated as an apartment complex.

.
Created by Nat Hiken (of "Sgt. Bilko" fame), "Car 54" was one of the first integrated shows on TV. Set in a fictional precinct (the 53rd), its main characters are a Mutt & Jeff team of uniformed cops. Diminutive Officer Toody is brash, pushy and a bit slow on the uptake; he has a domineering wife. Officer Muldoon is very tall, introverted and somewhat brighter than his partner; he lives with his mom.

Season Two had a female officer (Lisa Loughlin) for one episode. Another part-timer, Mickey Deems, was originally a drummer and arranger. He appeared in an off-Broadway musical with Hal Linden ("Anything Goes") and as half of a slapstick comedy team in over 200 "Mack & Myer" one-reelers. Linden (aka BARNEY MILLER) is also here, as an asst. DA.

Notable guests:
Kenny Delmar was Fred Allen's announcer and Sen. Claghorn on radio's "Allen's Alley." John Alexander played Uncle Teddy on Broadway and in the film adaptation of ARSENIC AND OLD LACE (1944). Molly Picon was a star of Yiddish theater and vaudeville. Larry Storch was Cpl. Agarn on TV's F TROOP. Katherine Helmond was a regular on SOAP and WHO'S THE BOSS? Margaret Hamilton was Dorothy's nemesis in THE WIZARD OF OZ (1939). Jules Munshin appeared in several MGM musicals. Herschel Bernardi voiced hipster "Charlie the tuna" in STARKIST TV ads. Joe E. Marks was Pappy Yokum in the LI'L ABNER (1959) movie musical and played Smee in NBC's Mary Martin version of PETER PAN (1960). Kenneth Mars is the zany playwright in Mel Brooks' THE PRODUCERS (1968). Jack Gilford was Doc Daneeka in CATCH-22 (1970). Middleweight boxing champ Jake LaMotta was bio'ed by Martin Scorsese in RAGING BULL (1980). Other title holders seen here: Sugar Ray Robinson and Rocky Graziano.

HASH(0xa0ed4c9c) out of 5 stars Hope there are several episodes with the commercial billboards.. Jan. 11 2012
By Rick Goldschmidt - Published on Amazon.com

ME TV in Chicago has run the 2nd season recently and they are all great episodes...especially the JFK episode that was pulled from syndication. I wish Beatrice Pons was in more of the 2nd season though. The first season set had two surprise episodes with the sponsor billboards and I am hoping that several do in this set. Makes it that much better to watch! Looking forward to seeing JOE E. ROSS' standup footage! One of the greatest series in history (Nothing on modern televsion comes close)!

HASH(0xa0ed557c) out of 5 stars Do manufacturers EVER LISTEN to their customers? April 26 2012
By Michael Chiaro - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Excitedly, I checked my mail yesterday(4/25) to find season 2 of CAR 54 had arrived. That excitement went south when opened it to find the same LOUSY!! packaging as the 1st set. After a careful and protracted attempt to remove the cds, I found Disc 1 was scratched. Luckily after contacting AMAZON they immediately sent a replacement set which (hopefully ) will arrive today. Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Shanachie receive a truckload of complaints on the first set's packaging? Not one person in the Marketplace LIKED the concept, and several reported damaging the contents when trying to remove the DVDS. I don't get it!! Well, s.o.s. Hope I can piece together a unflawed set from the 2 I'll have, before I return the first one. I know the content is 5 stars, but the packaging is a definite zero.

HASH(0xa0ed55dc) out of 5 stars Car 54 Where Are Youuuuuuuuuuu? June 17 2012
By Louis A. Roi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This review will be for the whole series which encapsulates both box sets, Season's One and Two.

Car 54 was a little before my time; I didn't get to see it until the late '80s on Nick-at-Nite.

Personally, I was blown away that both Fred Gwynne and Al Lewis were on a program that pre-dated the Munsters.

And, just like with the Munsters, both actors shine through as comic geniuses, along with Joe E. Ross.

In fact, Al and Fred are very natural in their own skin - they really didn't change their characters once they
put on make-up for their roles in the Munsters. The two shows blend together.

For you Munsters fans, don't forget, Grandpa said that Car 54 was his favorite show. He said, "that Al Lewis
really cracks me up"

I like the idea that the box sets show, "brought to you by ...", clips of classic products of the era. There aren't a
lot of special features but I actually like it that way as I think the "Special Features" on DVD sets have gotten a little
out of hand; sometimes, the special features are longer in duration than the main material.

The packaging could be a little more conducive towards preserving the condition of the discs but this is the growing trend
in packaging these days for box sets.

Car 54 takes place in the early '60s, in the Bronx. There are a lot of references to President Kennedy and a
lot of references to the Jewish population in the Bronx at that time, although other ethnic populations were also
highlighted in various episodes.

The show featured other typical actors/celebrities of the time, including, Nipsey Russell, Larry Storch and
Rocky Graziano.

This is a show that is simply innocent humour based on the classic formula of a small communication gone misinterpreted
that escalates in to complete mayhem and absolute confusion. This is most obvious in my favorite episode from the Second
Season - The Biggest Day of the Year.

It stands out as one of the most funny shows in early TV history that can be appreciated by all ages and the entire family.

I highly recommend checking it out. Try watching it along with Munsters episodes!
