MODIFICATIONS
I was able to lighten the videos of this series up a little bit and remove the gray softening haze that covered everything. It resulted in a slightly too sharp and sometimes mildly over-exposed product, but in all is much more pleasant to watch than the aged originals.

There are some minor gaps in some of these episodes - I cut most of them out so that you wouldn't have to sit through several seconds of nothingness.

I cleaned the sound up where I could, mostly removing background hiss and playing with equalization to get the vocal ranges into something more easy to understand... but the audio quality varies substantially from episode to episode, and unfortunately some of the episodes I was just not able to clean up as much as I would have liked, and so I've released with what improvements I could do.
