Classic TV westerns you would like to see on DVD

What classic TV western series that began in the 50's and early 60's would you like to see as season sets on DVD?

I'll start with these.

Trackdown
Rawhide
Wagon Train
Sugarfoot
Bronco
Wyatt Erp
Maverick
Cheyenne
Death Valley Days (20 Mule Team Borax!!!)
Gunsmoke
Bonanza

The last three would be HUGE sets.

My most wanted would be a small set: the 13 episodes of Sam Peckinpah's THE WESTERNER with commentary and special features, of course.

Wasn't there a show called Comancheros or something like that? How about Hondo?

Ditto on all those mentioned above.

A few more:
High Chaparrel
Zane Grey Theater
Broken Arrow-How could I have forgotten Michael Ansara
Laramie

If they were going to release these it should be sooner rather than later. I would think the audience that would buy these is shrinking faster than it is growing. Many of those mentioned have not been widely broadcast for younger generations to even see. (The exceptions would be Bonanza and Gunsmoke as they have been on TV Land for years)

Probably Bonanza.

A little more recent one that I'd like to see would be the James Arness TV-movie/mini-series/series from the mid-70s Macahans/How the West Was Won.

The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr!

Hey, it's just as classic as half the stuff they show on AMC nowadays.

Vote for The Big Valley and High Chaparral.

Not actually classic 50s to 60s but I hope "Bordertown" and "Magnificent Seven" (Michael Biehn) can be released on DVD too...

Hallmark finally took all the old westerns off. Big Valley will be coming to Encore Westerns, uncut, digital quality soon.

Gunsmoke, which is my opinion is one of the 3 best shows TV has ever produced. I think that highly of it.
