3 years ago (has it been that long?), the 5th Season of Make Room For Daddy
was put out by a company called Questar. Why the 5th Season? We described all the reasons back then
(including details of the program's other name, The Danny Thomas Show
), but in short the 5th season was the re-start of the show on a new network with a new wife for Thomas' character "Danny Williams." But there was never any other seasons for Questar. Now, we want some more.
So we'll get S'more! Arny Schorr, President of S'more Entertainment, sent out this exciting notice mid-day yesterday, stating that they've acquired the rights to pick up with the 6th Season of the show, and already have plans for some great extras on the set. Here's what Arny sent us:
After lengthy negotiations, I'm happy to finally announce that S'more Entertainment has inked a license to distribute "Make Room For Daddy," starting with Season 6. This season contains 32 episodes and has guest appearances by Jack Benny, Lucille Ball and Desi Arnez, Tony Bennett, Tennessee Ernie Ford, Dinah Shore, Bob Hope, Frankie Laine and a 5 episode story arc featuring Annette Funicello.
We will be working off of the original broadcast film elements (NOT the syndicated versions) and have scheduled interviews with Marjorie Lord, Tony Thomas and series regular, Sid Melton as well as an extensive photo library.
We're still working on how many discs will be required (which affects the SRP) but there will be no less than 5 and maybe 6 discs in the box set.
More information will be forthcoming but for now, the attached represents the anticipated cover for the box set.
I anticipate more cool acquisitions to be announced shortly...
