Special features: Disc 1: Daddy's girls (with Lauren Chapin and Elinor Donahue) : all-new interviews with the actresses who played the Anderson sisters, Kathy and Betty ; Disc 2: Robert Young's home movies (narrated by Young's grandson Bill Proffitt) : beautiful footage of Robert Young's real-life family shot between the 1930s and the 1970s reveals the inspiration behind much of "Father knows best"; Behind the scenes (narrated by Bill Proffitt) : rare color "home movies" from the set of "Father knows best" ; Disc 3: "24 hours in Tyrantland" : in 1959, the U.S. Department of the Treasury paid to have this special episode produced. It was never broadcast, but was shown in schools, churches and civic groups for the purpose of selling U.S. saving bonds. When Betty, Bud and Kathy don't want to help sell U.S. Bonds, Jim teaches them a lesson by making them spend a day living under a tyrannical dictator-- him! ; Disc 4: "Window on Main Street" pilot episode "The return" : shortly after "Father knows best" went off the air in 1960, Robert Young and Eugene B.
