Sgt. Bilko: The Phil Silvers Show - Shout! Factory Surprise Announcement: 'The Complete Series' on DVD!


20-disc set with all 4 seasons of the show will be in stores this autumn!

    All 143 hilarious episodes! One of the all-time classics from the golden age of television, Sgt. Bilko - The Phil Silvers Show: The Complete Series has finally arrived on DVD. This multiple Emmy Award winner, which originally aired from 1955-1959, was one of early television's biggest smashes...and still commands attention today as both a hilarious sitcom and a star-making showcase for legendary comedian Phil Silvers (It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World) in his signature role as Master Sergeant Ernest G. Bilko.

    Running the motor pool at Fort Baxter, the cagey Sgt. Bilko has always got an ace up his sleeve, and a scheme in his head. From get-rich-quick scams to plots designed to keep himself free from the drudgery of work, he's always running an angle that will be sure to leave his commanding officer, Colonel Hall, tearing out his hair - and viewers in stitches!

    Featuring a memorable supporting cast, including Harvey Lembeck, Allan Melvin, Joe E. Ross, and Paul Ford, the 143 episodes in this set represent a true masterpiece of American comedy. With some of the snappiest jokes and kookiest characters of all time, Sgt. Bilko -The Phil Silvers Show: The Complete Series is an essential piece of any classic television fan's collection.
In 2006, Paramount put out an 18-episode "50th Anniversary Edition," and followed up in 2010 with a 34-episode Season 1 set. Fans young and old have been hankering ever since for the remaining 3 seasons of the legendary sitcom...and now Shout! Factory is going to deliver! That studio has announced how on November 4th they will release in stores a 20-DVD set of Sgt. Bilko: The Phil Silvers Show - The Complete Series.

You'll get all 4 seasons, 143 episodes, in the original black-and-white, with the as-broadcast 1.33:1 "full screen" aspect ratio. Cost is $129.99 SRP, and it will be available in both the USA and Canada. It's not up for pre-order at Amazon.com quite yet, but you can pre-order it from the Shout! Factory online studio store right now (see button link below). Not only is it at a discount there, but if you order from them it ships 4 weeks early, on October 7th. Nice! Our thanks to reader John Hughes for the email about that. Here's the cover art:
