The Carol Burnett Show The Ultimate Collection Available Now & Christmas with Carol Giveaway (3 winners!)...

I remember my parents talking fondly about Carol Burnett.  She was before my time but my parents always talked about how funny she was in a way that was much more family friendly and really, truly funny (not so crass and over the top as things tend to be today).  I was so excited to have the opportunity to check out the The Carol Burnett Show:  The Ultimate Collection.  Talk about a great way to be officially introduced to the funny lady!  Here are the details....




THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW debuted on CBS in 1967 and ran for 11 years, receiving 25 Emmy Awards and five Golden Globes, making it one of the most honored shows in television history, and TIME Magazine named THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW one of the "100 Best Television Shows of all Time".  And to commemorate one of televisions' all-time-great comedy shows, StarVista Entertainment/Time Life created THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW: THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION ($199.95), a remarkable, overstuffed 22-DVD boxed set (originally released in late 2012).  This incredible and unprecedented package housed in a collectible box with a replica curtain from the show opening contains 50 hand-picked episodes and more than TWENTY hours of new, never-before-seen bonus features.  Along with an exclusive 20-page memory book, bonuses include three episodes from The Garry Moore Show where Carol got her start, including the "Supergirl" episode, where Carol did her Tarzan yell for the first time on television; rare sketches from the first five seasons of The Carol Burnett Show, not seen anywhere in over 40 years with guest appearances by Lucille Ball, Jerry Lewis, Bing Crosby and Bob Hope; a raucous 3-part Cast Reunion with Carol, Vicki Lawrence, Tim Conway and Lyle Waggoner and much more. 

Wow!  What a way to get introduced to Carol Burnett! This is THE ultimate collection for sure.  Hour after hour, Carol Burnett will make you laugh and delight the whole family.  The Carol Burnett Show really is one of those gems that the entire family can enjoy together.  The Ultimate Collection is an absolute for any fan and can be purchased HERE.

For more of a stocking stuffer for the Carol Burnett fan, check out The Carol Burnett Show Christmas with Carol....

 
Looking for a new holiday tradition to start with family and friends this coming season?  Look no further than THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW: CHRISTMAS WITH CAROL, the TV comedy legend’s very first holiday-themed DVD release!  This all-new collection brings together three hours of some of the most memorable holiday episodes and sketches from The Carol Burnett Show, sure to have viewers ho-ho-ho’ing their way through the holidays.

This new DVD features two complete holiday episodes:

Show #813
Original Air Date: December 21, 1974

Looking for a Norman Rockwell–style Christmas, merry and stress-free? Then avoid the Higgins residence. Santa would. Despite Eunice’s “Merry Xmas” apron and Ed’s mile-wide red tie, there’s no joy in the house once Eunice’s younger brother Larry (Alan Alda) and Mama arrive. They all act like they sat on a bough of holly. Ed’s ready and eager to capture every Kodak-Christmas moment for posterity. On a happier note, Carol and Alan Alda find peace amid the commercial holiday hustle and bustle. He’s a soon-to-be unemployed department store Santa, while she’s all thumbs over in the gift-wrapping section. Their Nobody Does It Like Me duet fits like a warm Christmas sweater.

Show #1113
Original Air Date: December 18, 1977

Mr. Tudball and Mrs. Wiggins aren’t known for their rapport or business smarts. She moves about a mile an hour, and he talks with a bizarre hybrid accent. They awkwardly observe the “mistletoe” tradition. Once he breaks out some champagne, the boss and his secretary finally communicate—sort of. Tudball’s wife, played by Vicki Lawrence, pays a surprise visit to the office and catches them with their guards down, so to speak. Vicki and Tim Conway carefully measure Carol for a Christmas present, a dress and hat combo that looks like the handiwork of a true idiot. The smart money’s on Tim. Carol’s concluding song celebrates Christmas and all holidays of the year, large and small.

Add in some hilarious bonus sketches such as “Christmas Night Quarrel” w/ Carol and Sid Caesar, “Charwoman: Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” and Q&A w/Jonathan Winters (Show #017, December 25, 1967) and “The Twelve Days after Christmas” (Show #114, December 30, 1968) and you have a new Christmas tradition, to be watched and rewatched with the family every holiday season!

This great holiday DVD can be purchased on Amazon....

I'm an old fan. I've loved Carol Burnett since the show first aired! The "Gone With The Wind" skit was and still is hilarious to me! Those curtains for a dress and her straight and serious face through it all! So much fun for her cast and the viewers! Thank you!
