I have waited SO LONG for this great show to make its way to DVD, and now that it's here I can say it's just as good as I remembered it to be! No ugly surprises here, the episodes are presented uncut, and with exceptional picture and sound quality. Even the opening "In Color" bumpers are included with each episode, as well as the MGM lion logo at the end. WB has done a wonderful job with this release, and I'm looking forward to owning Seasons 2 and 3 when they're made available.
I would highly recommend "The Courtship of Eddie's Father" to anyone with kids in their family, not only because it's an entertaining, engaging program the whole family can enjoy watching together, it teaches kids valuable lessons such as honesty, consideration for others (not to mention respect for others' differences), and many more, just like another classic show, "Family Affair".
Thanks WB!

    Comments about Courtship of Eddie's Father, The: The Complete First Season:

    Very good to see "Courtship" again, most episodes I barely remember, so it was good seeing through fresh eyes. Had forgotten how good of an actor Bill Bixby was, and the whole cast is excellent.

      A hip story about a hip father and son.

        Comments about Courtship of Eddie's Father, The: The Complete First Season:

        THE COURTSHIP OF EDDIE'S FATHER was part of an era that had other hip family show's THE BRADY BUNCH, THE PARTRIDGE FAMILY, and BEWITCHED. It has a catchy theme song by the late HARRY NILSSON, and is centered around a widowed father Tom Corbitt(BILL BIXBY) and his son Eddie(BRANDON CRUZ) in tight pants. Eddie makes constant...but futile attempts to play cupid for his dad whenever he sees a female companion with him that he wants to call his mother after his real one died: One of actresses who portrayed them was TV's Batgirl, YVONNE CRAIG who appears in the season 1 Episode: DON'T LOOK NOW BUT YOUR SCORPIO'S SHOWING. I think I will enjoy watching the episode I mentioned and all the rest and I'm also looking forward to ordering SEASON 2 the first chance I get.

            Comments about Courtship of Eddie's Father, The: The Complete First Season:

            I have waited and looked for this show on DVD for so long!! I remember seeing it air again in the 90s when I was living in Arizona and I thought, they have to put this out on DVD soon. Well, finally! It is my favorite show of all time!! I am best friends with my mom and she was very much like Tom Corbett. Still is. This show and that character have always had a place in my heart. I can't wait for the release of the last two seasons, and I'm just sad there were only 3 seasons total. I read that they stopped after three seasons because Bixby and the director had a disagreement on where the show was going, Bixby wanted it to stay focused on the father and son aspect, while the director wanted to focus more on some of the other characters. I agree with Bixby and it should have kept going with the father/son relationship. They could have easily had 10 seasons and seen Eddie growing up. Such a shame it had to end so soon.

              I have searched for this for such a long time and finally found it. My wife has been wanting to see this series for many years and we couldn't locate it. She said that she used to watch it when she was sick and staying home from school. Today is her birthday and I was able to give her this gift. She was in tears. Thank you WB for making it possible for her to re-live her childhood. You made my wife's birthday a very special day.

                  What a fantastic set. WB has done a great job at re-mastering this classic TV show. It is so heart-warming to again watch this show, which I haven't seen since I was a child. A true homage to the relationship between a father and son.
