I am going to buy the DVD tomorrow if I can find it in stores. I have been waiting for years to see this TV show again. I hope everything will be in there, with no cuts --I recall one show, where he was dressed as an old Italian matriarch, with a gray haired wig and long dress, and for one thing before going to commercial break, he as the Italian lady Said to the camera: "Don't you-a change the dial---or I'll change-a your face!" shaking his/her fist.
And I brought this up on another review, how in many of these shows, he had a little Asian girl. whom he chatted with. In one show, he told her his original name was Walden, and she giggled. I think she was his stepdaughter, though I have never since found anything about her! I was bothered when he died and so much on and on about Sandra Dee and their son and nothing about his second wife --so they divorced shortly before his death --she still cared about him and I remember seeing news footage where the little girl was crying --yet no one cares about her, nor even acknowledges her. I wonder if her footage will be in the DVD set --it may well be removed if they could not get permission to use it. I think she was uncredited. The series was canceled early in 1973, but was rerun that summer, when I watched it. His death was heartbreaking and I could not stand it at all.
