Publisher's Summary

Chester A. Riley: A husband. A father. A lovable, working-class bumbler with the proverbial heart of gold. William Bendix stars as this simple (and sometimes simple-minded) man who starts out with the best of intentions, and ends up making a big mess of things.

Scaling the mountainous molehills alongside him are his patient wife Peg (Paula Winslowe), his typical American kids, and his eclectic aggregation of friends, including Gillis and Digger O'Dell, the friendly undertaker - both played by John Brown.

These 16 digitally restored and remastered episodes find Riley facing wartime shortages, a seemingly constant fear that Babs is planning to elope, Junior's sports shortcomings, and a variety of workplace worries.
