The Incredible Number Two Season of "The Donna Reed Show" is almost HERE!!! So Call your Relatives and Call your Neighbors because this particular season of an 'Iconic Family Series' is in fact a much "Treasured Gift" for all! This truly masterful second season of "The Donna Reed Show" continues on with the very popular 'Stone Family' that at times, appears almost like a continued documentary on a real life family because the cast members seem to be so very comfortable with each other that they truly appear to be actually related to one another! This is what drew the audiences to this Classic TV Show in the first place when it first aired in the late 1950's. With its greatly selected cast and Fantastic Storylines in which actress Donna Reed herself had much influence, which helped propel this series with its Loyal Audiences for Eight Wonderful Seasons and a vast number of episodes, 274 to be exact!!! For this second season of "The Donna Reed Show" that had aired originally on The ABC Television Network, the TV time slot had changed from 9 PM to an earlier 8 PM time slot. And the day of the week that it had aired, changed from Wednesday Nights to Thursday Nights. This ABC Series did remain at its 8 PM time slot for seven more Successful Seasons!! The cast includes of course in the starring role, the forever gorgeous & charming Donna Reed in which she was herself a 'Big Plus' in attracting audiences to this show, as was her continuing ability to play in a very convincing manner her role of the Donna Stone Character, who was a very Capable Successful Wife and Mother of two. Seasoned Actress Donna Reed truly makes this Donna Stone Character her very own and as a direct result of this, her maternal role in this series shines very brightly indeed which had gained her many new fans over the years of this show's run! Carl Betz continues to play the character of Dr. Alex Stone, a very good looking 'Father Figure' who is also a charmer, and a most dedicated Pediatrician as well, portrayed excellently & quite convincingly by the very Accomplished Actor Carl Betz! Shelley Fabares continues her role of playing the Character Mary Stone, a very fresh faced, quite attractive and truly likable Teenage Girl, coming of age into her young womanhood with wonderful results! Actress Shelley Fabares is Great in this role! Paul Petersen also continues with his role of playing the very Effervescent Mr. Personality Plus, and just Down Right FRESH Jeff Stone Character, who is also the youngest household family member. This cute Jeff Stone Character adds a lot of spice and life to this show. He is a very energetic & animated character that can appear somewhat bratty at times, but still lovable to the point of being very outrageous with his many smart aleck remarks that are actually Quite Funny!!! The very Talented Actor Paul Petersen does a Superb Job in portraying his Jeff Stone Character! Every episode of "The Donna Reed Show" is like watching a short Classic Movie since every episode is a Masterpiece in itself! "The Donna Reed Show" was done very professionally with a top grade quality! This tremendous Second Season of "The Donna Reed Show" remains incredibly strong with its Great Cast! And its very lovely and talented star "Donna Reed" with her unique screen presence, adds pure magic to this Wonderful TV Series! So don't you miss out on this Great Show!!
