Every legend has a beginning.  And this past September, Time Life released the very first steps of a TV icon with THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW: THE LOST EPISODES.  Featuring original broadcast episodes from Seasons 1-5 (1967-1972) not seen since their original airing more than forty years ago and hand-picked by Carol herself, Time Life has a configuration for every fan -- whether a die-hard, Tarzan-yelling, ear-tugger or a newbie, discovering the incredible talents of Burnett for the very first time.
Aside from the 6-disc retail set, which features 16 magical episodes and nearly 5 hours of bonus programming including a backstage tour of CBS Studio 33, 13 exclusive new interviews with Alan Alda, Julie Andrews, Bill Hader, Queen Latifah, Don Rickles and others, bonus sketches and never-before-seen bloopers & outtakes, Time Life has also released two exclusive configurations.  THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION includes 22 DVDs, over 20 hours of specially-created bonus programming, a collectible guest book and more.  And, THE VIP EDITION features all that, plus a hand-signed, personalized greeting on the cover of the guest book from Carol.  Each VIP EDITION will be numbered and arrive with a Certificate of Authenticity. 
TIME Magazine named THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW one of the "100 Best Television Shows of all Time".  This holiday season, perhaps it's time to discover why.

My Thoughts

Carol Burnett has to be one of the funniest women from the small screen. Her show was a favorite with my family for generations. This set includes sixteen of her best uncut episodes. Each one is filled with sketches that will have you laughing so hard it will bring tears to your eyes. Plus, it will bring back lots of great memories.
In addition to all these fantastic shows,  you'll also get lots of behind the scene footage including interviews and bloopers. There are also lots of wonderful celerity guests.  Anyone who is a fan of the show have to get a copy of this DVD set to add to their library.
