The show was originally produced as a one-hour show, with no laugh track. This is how it was broadcast in Canada in the early 70's. When it was later syndicated in the US, the episodes were cut to a half-hour and a laugh track was added. Unfortunately, the four episodes on this DVD are from the US syndication package.

I wish I'd read the reviews before ordering. As already stated, these are indeed the half-hour US syndicated versions. They are sloppily edited and include a terrible laugh track. I'm still almost tempted to recommend these for purchase, if only to enourage the rights-holders to re-issue more episodes on DVD(the proper, full, one-hour Canadian eps with NO laugh track) but, really... this is a disappointment and the great work of Billy Van deserves better.

This was my favorite morning show as a kid throughout the '70s. Looking back, its slapstick humour plays just as well to adults as to kids! Grizelda and the Librarian rank as my favourite characters ... even today! Like the other reviewers I too am disappointed that there are only 4 episodes (how about a boxed set?) and what's with the laugh track??? There was no laugh track when the show was first aired! It definitely takes away from the mood. Imagine "Frankenstein" with a laugh track! Also, the editing is a bit sloppy. Hopefully they'll get it right ... or should I say ... fright! on Volumes 2,3,4, etc... To answer the Librarian: I'm not "terrified" ... just disappointed. Nevertheless, I'm glad that the show has been at least been remembered and is now available on DVD.

I TOTALLY agree with the last guy! I should have read the reviews first. I've recently been watching the reruns on cable television, and this dvd just doesn't cut it. The laugh track, as well as additional audio sounds, interfere with the audibility of the characters. During a Grizelda the cook sketch, I had a hard time hearing her dialogue over the added bubbling cauldron noises, and unnecessary laugh track. It was a great campy show, but it wasn't THAT funny! There's childrens laughter before the jokes and punch lines are delivered.
For the same amount of money, you could add the Drive-In Classics channel to your cable subscription, and receive about 130 days of complete 1 hr canadian episodes... with equal or better visual quality, and NO added audio!!! Highly disappointed.

It's great to finally see this issued on DVD, but I was a little disappointed. It's not that i expected the parting of the red sea...but there are a few problems:
1) the insert has the 4 episodes listed, but 1 is repeated twice! (Only on the paper insert, not the DVD itself)
2) the actor Fishka Rais is listed as Rais Fishka.
3) the horrible laugh track is on this DVD. Imagine the Librarian with a laugh track! Takes away from the whole experience. (Now that is scarey...no?)
4) the quality varies. Episodes 1 and 4 are great. 2 & 3 seem shakey..and jerky and you can see lines from the VHS source running through the segments.
5) the star of the show was Billy Van, but you get the impression it features Vincent Price more prominently.
6) the closing credits are replaced with a screen shot that states the syndicator.
Suggestions: fix the above but more importantly - GET RID OF THE LAUGH TRACK. It's awful.
Still I am not disappointed in buying this DVD. Billy Van is just such a brilliant performer. If there was ever star that Canada has produced....it's Billy Van!
