THE BEST OF THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW REVIEWED
“The Best of the Carol Burnett Show” is a 6-DVD set that picks the 16 best episodes from the show’s complete run. You even get the series finale and I haven’t seen that in awhile. The bloopers are news, as well as most of the special features. But, what makes this all work is that Time Life keeps giving Burnett fans what they want. The only downside is whether or not this will help you obtain a complete series run. It won’t, but you’ll have fun doing it.

The Plot Thus Far
6 DVDs OF A BELOVED TELEVISION CLASSIC… CAROL BURNETT
On September 11, 1967, Carol Burnett and her madcap cast took to the airwaves on CBS for a new variety series that combined sketch comedy, singing and dancing. Little did they know that The Carol Burnett Show would become an Emmy Award winning program and survive the changing tastes of TV audiences to last eleven seasons.
THE BEST OF THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW celebrates the 50th anniversary of this TV institution with sixteen of the best episodes from across all eleven years, all in one collection. Mrs. Wiggins, Carol and Sis, The Oldest Man, The Family, As the Stomach Turns, and a marathon of movie spoofs are back, along with some amazing bloopers. Great guest stars and lavish stage productions grace each disc. And 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.
