Carol Burnett Show: The Ultimate Collection

posted by Nell Minow

The ultimate collection of the classic “Carol Burnett Show” series is now available for pre-order on DVD.  My favorite were the movie parodies (the “I saw it in the window” line from the “Gone with the Wind” sketch is one of television’s best-loved moments) and seeing Tim Conway break up Harvey Korman.  These shows are wonderfully entertaining and there’s a whole extra level of joy in seeing the guest stars, pretty much everyone who was around in the 1960’s and 70’s, including Betty White, Carl Reiner, Steve Martin, Lily Tomlin, Dick Van Dyke, and Sammy Davis Jr.  And there’s lots of new material, with 12 hours of bonus features including Carol’s start on the Garry Moore Show, rare comedy sketches, exclusive interviews (including Betty White, Carl Reiner, Jane Lynch, Amy Poehler and others) and ten featurettes.
