A ride down Memory Lane, 3 January 2009
Author: fantasyislander65 from United States

Wow, does this one ever bring back some memories. When this was running in prime time all those years back, I was a klutzy, hyper-shy, buck-toothed eleven-year-old with glasses and a boy's haircut, and felt like the original Ugly Duckling. C&T were my favorite musical artists, and I was the world's most rabid fan, which undoubtedly both amused and annoyed my parents by turns. My father had the amazing prescience to suggest, about six weeks into the series' run, that I put the episodes on audio cassette. I immediately agreed, and I have all but about six of the shows on tape as they originally aired. The tapes can still be played.

In regard to the questions from "Otto", most of the shows that made it to the DVD were edited in one way or another (only one or two made it through intact and untouched). But the editing, for the most part, is to the benefit of the DVD. I was in the unusual position of being able to compare my old cassette tapes with the same shows on the DVD, so that I know exactly what's been cut, or what was taken from episodes that didn't make it onto the DVD and spliced into other ones that did. It was the most amazing treat to be able to see the shows again; I had forgotten nearly all the visuals, so that all the songs and dialogue were very familiar but the sights that went with them were practically new to me. There are a couple of bits that got chopped out here and there, which I wish had been left in, but overall this was very good work and is a creditable treatment of the series. Us 70s kids were so much luckier than people think -- I'm glad I remember those days!
