Trivia

An original concept was used in this series: the end credits rolled over top of a sort of epilogue that tied up the last scene. If you didn't watch the end credits, you would miss the tie-up for what the characters did at fade out and be missing some of the fun. This actually gave an extra minute or so extension - showcasing the genius of the rapid paced editing and score that hallmarked this show. See more »

Another aging fan of this great series...
20 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

It's really nice to read the comments from those of you who remember, as do I, the best series of the early 60s. Like so many of you, I was absolutely crushed when I learned that the show was going to be canceled. If memory serves, that was the first time I was moved to write a letter of protest. (I was a teenager and identified strongly with the show--this may have laid the seeds of further activism a few years later, when protest truly came into its own.) The thing that stands out most to me as I think back now, is reading in TV Guide that the reason the show was being canceled is that it was considered "too intelligent". I was appalled! What a sad, sad commentary on the time, on our country, on the TV industry in general...

If we're voting, I cast mine with the rest of the people who would buy a DVD of the series. Come on, doesn't someone out there have (1) the necessary connections and (2) the desire to make some money??
