Carol Burnett Show, The: 6-DVD Set
While there's no truth to the rumor that CBS ever stood for The Carol Burnett Show, for eleven season and 278 episodes, this star-studded extravaganza of sketch comedy, song and dance became entertainment central for the network and TV viewers. Taped before a live audience at Hollywood's CBS Television City Studio 33, The Carol Burnett Show featured clever, dazzling production numbers in an intimate environment, thanks to strategic camera placement that brought the actors and audience closer together. Burnett operated in a relaxed theater setting that allowed her to take questions, cut loose with her famous Tarzan yell, and join second bananas Harvey Korman, Tim Conway, Vicki Lawrence and Lyle Waggoner to have a laugh or sing a song.
This 6-DVD set features 16 uncut episodes, as they originally aired on television, and showcases some of the most acclaimed and beloved moments from The Carol Burnett Show, including Went With The Wind! - the sidesplitting parody of Gone With The Wind, Classic Sketches The Family, Mrs. Wiggins, The Oldest Man, The Charwoman and As The Stomach Turns, Guest stars Betty White, Steve Martin, Carl Reiner, Joan Rivers, The Jackson 5, Shirley MacLaine, and many others.
