    I was excited to watch the extras so I immediately put in disc 4.
    I watched the 4th disc and was horrified to see multiple white emulsion scratches in most of the episodes. This transfer was made from Paul Henning’s personal 16mm film collection which has gotten scratched over the years. Too bad they didn’t work a deal with Paramount for access to the 35mm fine grain negatives!

    That said, the extras are great! And I am glad they restored the origional sponsored titles! “K E doulble-L O double-Good Kelloggs best to you” is sung by Earl as part of the opening theme as the Clampetts drive past a Kellogg’s billboard (in Beverly Hills?). Other episodes have the Clampetts pass a large truck with a WINSTON ad on it’s side, the goodness of cigarettes is sung as part of the opening theme.

    The cast commercials have been removed from the shows and stuck back-to-back on disc 4 as an extra. I am glad to have these as they brought back fond memories, but since these were story specific (the story line is carried over as the concept for the commercial) I would have prefered these to be left intact in the episodes they played in.

    It is quite out of character to see the Clampetts talking of the goodness of Winston Cigarettes!

    The 1966 interview with Irene Ryan on Art Linkletter’s show is also priceless. This is something that could have been lost forever, thankfully it has been saved!

    We should be glad for these wonderful extras!

    What are you folks griping about! Volume 1 was great, great extras and the theme music. Yes, I would like the entire season, but this is much better than any collection thus far, so let’s enjoy! Volume 2 gets 5 stars as well!
