Shout! Factory is releasing Merry Sitcom!
on November 3rd
, a 170-minute DVD which collects jolly episodes from several different classic TV shows. The box art, shown below, shows that episodes are from several programs that Shout! has previously released on DVD: That Girl, McHale's Navy
and Father Knows Best
. They've also apparently struck a deal to include episodes from Bewitched
and The Flying Nun
, which have been released on DVD in the past by Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, and also The Donna Reed Show
, which is presently getting releases on DVD from Virgil Films and Entertainment.
Brian Ward, Shout!'s DVD producer for this release, has also revealed at the studio's official message board that "the Christmas episode of Window On Main Street
, titled 'Christmas Memory', will be included in our Merry Sitcom
holiday compilation as a bonus." The Window on Main Street
series was Robert Young's next prime time series after Father Knows Best
These "Christmas Classics from TV's Golden Age" (as the DVD's subtitle describes the release) will cost just $12.99 SRP, but you can pre-order it from Amazon at a discount. We don't have the precise list of featured episodes on this release yet, but stay tuned and we'll bring it to you if we get it.
