Like many anthology series, the quality of the shows varied considerably but most are well worth seeing today.
In 1947, I "Kraft Theatre" debuted on television and it stayed on the air until 1958. Well, this isn't exactly true. Instead of being canceled, it was renamed "Kraft Mystery Theatre" and remained that until, oddly, it was renamed "Kraft Suspense Theatre" in 1963 and played for two more seasons until the Kraft shows came to an end. That is a very long run and today you can see many of the later episodes of "Kraft Mystery Theatre" and "Kraft Suspense Theatre" on YouTube...and they are worth finding. Each episode was a self-contained story with all sorts of action and plot twists that sometimes made them marvelous. But, like any anthology show, it did have some disappointments as well- -a few terrible episodes. Don't give up if you try a few and you aren't hooked...there are some real gems among the shows. And, most importantly, they're fee to watch and have usually aged quite well.
