Don't let the 99 cent price tag put you off on this DVD, the four episodes included are of near broadcast quality. That said, the familiar opening/closing theme music has been substituted with generic bluegrass music. While the episodes on this DVD may be in the public domain, the music is not, hence the substitution. These four episodes are part of a larger group of season one "Petticoat Junction" episodes that have fallen into the public domain. Those episodes, including the proper theme music, can be found on the official release from MPI Home Video that's sanctioned by the estate of series creator Paul Henning. Look for Dennis Hopper guest starring in the episode "Bobbie Jo and the Beatnik."
I recommend this DVD to those who want just a small sampling of episodes, as well as those who haven't seen the show and want to see what the fuss is all about.
