TV Time Machine Productions is proud to announce that the rarely-seen 1962 ABC TV sitcom, I’m Dickens, He’s Fenster, will be released on DVD in 2011! Visit the official site at: www.imdickenshesfenster.com
I’m Dickens, He’s Fenster followed the comic exploits of two construction workers and bosom buddies (played by John Astin and Marty Ingels).
Sixteen of the thirty-two digitally remastered half-hour episodes of the series will be featured on the Season One, Volume One DVD release of I’m Dickens, He’s Fenster. This first set will also feature tons of supplemental material, including video interviews with cast and crew, audio commentaries and more.
Since its cancellation nearly fifty years ago, the original films moved from storage vault to storage vault, and at one point most thought the elements were lost or had been destroyed.
However, in 2006, I’m Dickens He’s Fenster creator/producer Leonard Stern asked TV historian Jim Benson to investigate the fate of the series and see if he could track down the original elements. Happily, Jim located all of the original 35 mm fine grain films and optical tracks in a storage facility in Los Angeles.
After several years, via TV Time Machine Productions, I’m Dickens, He’s Fenster has emerged from the vaults. This comedy gem will finally see the light of day on DVD, digitally remastered in all its glory, to be enjoyed by a new generation of viewers!
