THE BEST OF THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW: 50TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION is comprised of three volumes:
  • THE BEST OF THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW (10 Discs) — Celebrate the golden anniversary of this TV institution with 32 of the series very best episodes. “Mrs. Wiggins,” “Carol and Sis,” “The Oldest Man,” “The Family,” As the Stomach Turns, and a marathon of movie spoofs are back, along with commercial spoofs and some amazing bloopers, great guest stars, and lavish stage productions. Carol’s question-and-answer openers with the studio audiences are no less entertaining. She might offer a hug or a shout out, or flee from a rampaging gorilla after letting loose with one of her Tarzan yells. Audiences loved Carol, and she loved them. Watch any show and you’ll agree, she’s still crazy and funny after all these years.
  • 11 YEARS, TOGETHER AGAIN (10 Discs) — This comprehensive 10-DVD set opens up the CBS archives to experience Carol’s glory days. All your favorite routines are back, along with the movie parodies and joke commercials. There’s also loads of bonus material, including special interviews with Carol, Vicki Lawrence and Tim Conway. It was a tough job to entertain America each week and keep TV viewers satisfied. Somebody had to do it, and for eleven years, nobody did it better than Carol Burnett.
  • THE FINAL SHOW (1 Disc) – On March 29, 1978, the curtain came down for good. The Final Show, billed as A Special Evening with Carol Burnett, takes a two-hour stroll through the show’s glory days. It’s presented here in the uncut double-length episode, as Carol, Vicki and Tim present a video scrapbook of unforgettable moments from their routines and movie spoofs. The love was never more heartfelt than in this long, emotional goodbye.
