Finally, after years “under construction”, the 1962 comedy hit I’m Dickens…He’s Fenster can be yours to own for the first time ever in this Golden Anniversary Limited Collectors’ Edition DVD package!

The I’m Dickens…He’s Fenster Story.

In 1961, TV producer Leonard Stern (Get Smart, The Honeymooners, Sgt. Bilko) was having his house remodeled. As he watched the workers brick a ladder inside his fireplace, the idea was born for I’m Dickens…He’s Fenster, a comedy about two best buddies and less-than-perfect construction workers played by John Astin (The Addams Family) and Marty Ingels.

This sitcom gold was praised in its day by Time Magazine as “the best new show on television” and cheered by critics and audiences alike. But short-sighted network executives prematurely and tragically cancelled I’m Dickens…He’s Fenster at the height of its popularity, after only one season, disappointing millions of die-hard fans. By the time the network realized its mistake, the actors had all moved on to other projects.

“These guys, that show, way before their time.”
- Bill Cosby

With fewer than the necessary episode count for syndication, D&F never went to reruns like other popular sitcoms, so it began to fade from memory.

But now the ‘condemned’ notice has been been lifted! Having recovered the film after a lengthy excavation in various Hollywood studio archives, tracked down the cast members and production staff, and lovingly restoring the images to their former glory, we’re thrilled to finally release I’m Dickens He’s Fenster Volume One on DVD ! This show helped launch the careers of Harvey Korman, Lee Meriwether, Yvonne Craig, Jim Nabors, Ellen Burstyn and more…see them as you’ve probably never seen them before in this hilarious show the whole family will love.

“Still holds up beautifully, fresh and funny.””
- Mel Brooks
