The above sketch is a classic featuring Carol Burnett and Tim Conway.
You can find that and many more on the recently released DVD set The Carol Burnett Show: The Lost Episodes – Classic Carol available now from the fine folks at Time Life!
Across three new-to-retail configurations, The Carol Burnett Show: The Lost Episodes – Classic Carol, fans will have the opportunity to restore their CB connections and tune in to rediscover what made the program tick and stick around as one of the best hours on TV. The 6-disc set features fourteen episodes as they originally aired on television showcases some of the most acclaimed and beloved moments from The Carol Burnett Show, and guests stars including Lucille Ball, Ken Berry, George Carlin, Ray Charles, Cass Elliot, Robert Goulet, Bernadette Peters, Debbie Reynolds, Lana Turner and many more! The 3 disc set features seven episodes, and the single disc includes three.
Specially-created bonus features are also available on both the 6-disc and 3-disc sets and include “A Writers’ Roundtable: A Conversation with The Carol Burnett Show‘s Writers” and interviews with show dancer and choreographer Randy Doney and ballet dancer Edward Villella. The 6-disc collection also features several bonus shows.
This show is one of the best sketch/variety shows I’ve ever had the pleasure of watching. The comedy is timeless and I can’t recommend picking up this or any of the other recent releases more. They’re really perfect for the entire family.
