    my guess is it comes down to 'Royalties' for the bit players, and perhaps music rights if teh show used any popular songs from it's era

    a secondary reason might be that much of the material is 'dated'. by limiting the DVDs to 'Favorites' they can pick the ones that are best remembered and hold up well and thus they avoid breaking peoples' 'nostalgia filters'...

    -- a good analogy might be SNL, I cannot recall ever seeing Full season sets, it is always Best of Year Y or Cast member X... and the TV Reruns all but ignore the musical Guests, many of whome were flashes in the Pan, whose 15 minutes of fame were used up before the episode first reran on NBC

    I was more of a fan of Mama's Family with Carol as Vicki Lawerence's daughter. I did find that I was actually beginning to have the same attitude and making smart *** comments just like Mama. It was hilarious, but could lead you down the path of making enemies who don't think you are funny when you are insulting them. I loved Tim Conway and that other guy who was on a lot.
