Every legend has a beginning.  And this past September, Time Life released the very first steps of a TV icon with THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW: THE LOST EPISODES.  Featuring original broadcast episodes from Seasons 1-5 (1967-1972) not seen since their original airing more than forty years ago and hand-picked by Carol herself, Time Life has a configuration for every fan — whether a die-hard, Tarzan-yelling, ear-tugger or a newbie, discovering the incredible talents of Burnett for the very first time.
Aside from the 6-disc retail set, which features 16 magical episodes and nearly 5 hours of bonus programming including a backstage tour of CBS Studio 33, 13 exclusive new interviews with Alan Alda, Julie Andrews, Bill Hader, Queen Latifah, Don Rickles and others, bonus sketches and never-before-seen bloopers & outtakes, Time Life has also released two exclusive configurations.  THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION includes 22 DVDs, over 20 hours of specially-created bonus programming, a collectible guest book and more.  And, THE VIP EDITION features all that, plus a hand-signed, personalized greeting on the cover of the guest book from Carol.  Each VIP EDITION will be numbered and arrive with a Certificate of Authenticity.
TIME Magazine named THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW one of the “100 Best Television Shows of all Time”.  This holiday season, perhaps it’s time to discover why.

OUR THOUGHTS:Time Life is a reputable company that has always provided high-quality products. It’s a brand that both my husband & I are very familiar with starting back in childhood. Time Life Books & Media was often advertised on television and became a household name. Years later, they’re the same fantastic company we all remember.
If you miss the classic tv you grew up with then you haveto see all the DVDs Time Life is currently offering. This is your chance to share those special tv moments with your own kids or grandkids. We’ve always loved telling our boys about shows we used to watch when television was family entertainment- clean & quality. Now, we can all enjoy these same shows together, as a family.

Whether or not you’ve previously seen these episodes, you’ll have to smile. Especially with the ‘Midnight Special’ DVDs, it’s fun to see how young the bands look. You may not recognize some at first! It’ll remind of the days when music was music. Bands cared more about the songs they played than the money they made.
As for Carol Burnett, she truly is timeless. Her quick wit never gets old.

The cases for the DVD box sets are really beautiful. Each case makes it super-simple to keep all the DVDs together in one location. Each is designed with bold color & artsy font. Any recipient on your gift list will be beyond thrilled to receive any of these titles.

Time Life truly brings back the joy of the classics!
