Journey back to Jefferson Junior High with Mr. Peepers (Wally Cox), that shy, quiet, slow-moving science teacher whose efforts to do the right thing always seemed to backfire. Robinson Peepers’ antics with his best friend and fellow teacher, Harvey Weskitt (Tony Randall) and the school nurse, Nancy Remington (Patricia Benoit) made this classic ’50s TV series a hit with the nation. One of the reasons we loved him was that although Mr. Peepers appeared laughable, easily bullied, baffled and befuddled by the other teachers and life in general, he quietly displayed the strength and conviction that ensured his life was fulfilled and that at the end of every episode he prevailed. An everyday hero in a crazy world, he displayed the virtues of putting the interests of others before his own, genuinely caring about his students and those around him, including his sister (Jenny Egan) and mother (Ruth McDevitt). In Mr. Peepers, good guys finish first; in the last season of the show, he even marries Nurse Remington, the girl of his dreams. The first 26 episodes of this Emmy® Award nominated series are compiled in this classic collection for you to enjoy. Created in conjunction with the UCLA Film & Television Archive.
