All episodes in this collection from original film transfers (Quality will vary from episode to episode depending on quality of the master film and the transfer process), and some may have original commercials intact. NOTE: Due to the rarity of these episodes, DO NOT expect today's TV quality. Some episodes would be considered Fair to Good, some good to very good.

This is a 12 DVD collection - All DVDs are recorded at the SP (2hrs per disc) speed for the best quality. I do not cram 6-10 hours of shows on a disc and sell them for cheap. If that's what you want, those discs are available elsewhere! All my DVDs have episode titles on the menu. I use Name Brand Discs, not cheap, 'no-name on the disc' DVDs because I believe quality is important.

I cannot accept returns for refund for any reason but I will replace ANY defective disc with same content upon return.
