It is digitally remastered which accounts for how good it looks. It is out on DVD under "Trouble with Father". 9 years later Sheila Kuehl went on to the "Dobie Gillis" show. The dialog moves pretty fast compared to an old Burns & Allen show.The show was called "Life with the Erwins" originally. Funny thing is I never heard of Stu Erwin before I saw this DVD set. The first episode is about some ugly furniture. Most of the show deals with pricing. Selling furniture for $2; spending $20. For today's value you can multiply all prices by about 10. So if he spends $20 it is really $200. When he says he saved over $400, it would be about $4,000 today.
