Editors Note
Note A popular situation comedy of the late 1960s, this wholesome family fare followed young widow Doris Day and her two young sons, Billy and Toby. In the first season, the family has absconded from the congestion of San Francisco to live with Doris's dad Buck (Denver Pyle, THE DUKES OF HAZZARD) on his ranch, located just outside the city in Mill Valley, CA. Doris gave up a career as a singer to make the move, and much of the show's humor comes from her attempts to adjust to the unfamiliar country life, and her involvement in the community. Other characters include Leroy (James Hampton), the ranch hand, and Juanita (Naomi Stevens), the housekeeper. Early in the season, Doris must contend with the attentions of the town swinger, due to the efforts of her matchmaking sons. In "Love a Duck," she accepts the challenge of trapping a troublesome poacher, and "The Five Dollar Bill" sees the whole family facing a difficult conundrum when a neighbor accuses Billy of stealing. Other episodes include "Dinner for Mom," "The Antique," "The Con Man," and "The Clock."

ReviewSource DVD Talk
Review I suspect that the production history behind The Doris Day Show will prove to be more interesting to today's viewers, than the show itself. Largely forgotten today (it wasn't a success in syndication), The Doris Day Show was a sizeable, if critically unheralded, success in the Nielsen ratings during its five year run, and was notable for being megawatt motion picture star Doris Day's first foray into regular series TV, as well as proving to be her last acting role to date...She's a total pro in the series, but no amount of personal charm can lift a mediocre show out of the dumps. I vaguely remember catching the show when I was a kid, but it never stuck in my mind like its far better contemporary, The Mary Tyler Moore Show. Perhaps the fact that Day never really wanted to do the show -- despite her 100% professionalism once she committed to it -- seeps through the cracks and puts a vague, indefinable pall over the proceedings.
