The Carol Burnett Show -The Complete Series - DVD Collection

Carol Burnett and Friends, also known as The Carol Burnett Show, was a half hour comedy television show composed of sketches and parodies (movie, tv shows, soaps operas) starring Carol Burnett, Vicky Lawrence, Tim Conway and Harvey Korman among others. The show usually starts with some audience interaction followed by the sketches that made the show famous. Among the favorites are soap opera and movie parodies, "As the Stomach Turns" and "Went with the Wind".

The popular variety show made the stars household names with such sketches as "As the Stomach Turns", "Went with the Wind" (a parody of Gone with the Wind featuring a scene with Burnett as Scarlett O'Hara in the dress made from a window curtain, complete with the curtain rod), "Carol & Sis", "Mr. Tudball" and "Mrs. Wiggins", "The Family" (which would later spin off into a show called Mama's Family), "Nora Desmond" (Burnett's send-up of Gloria Swanson's character Norma Desmond in Sunset Boulevard), and "Stella Toddler." A frequent repeated segment was "Kitchen Commercials", in which cast members parodied TV commercials that drove a woman (Burnett) crazy. It had frequent, high recognition guest stars. The long-running show was frequently nominated for Emmy's, and won three times.

One would be hard pressed to find a more formidable ensemble of comedic talent than the cast of The Carol Burnett Show. For eleven seasons, Carol and her cohorts took sketch comedy to hilarious new heights, thanks in part to each actor’s devious desire to make the others crack up on camera. The tactics usually worked, leaving the cast, and generations of viewers, in stitches. Fondly-remembered sketches included their popular ongoing soap opera spoof, “As the Stomach Turns,” as well as frequent movie parodies, such as the unforgettable “Went With The Wind.” Based on the film, Gone With The Wind, the sketch featured Carol as Scarlett O’Hara, dressed ridiculously in a garment made from a set of window curtains. Another recurring segment called “The Family” would later become the catalyst for a spin-off series in 1983 called Mama’s Family, which starred Vicky Lawrence.

For their efforts, The Carol Burnett Show collected 28 Emmy Awards and eight Golden Globes. After going off the air in 1978, the show would continue on in syndication for many years as Carol Burnett and Friends. It was the last great variety show, one that showcased a cast of characters whose chemistry is unparalleled. But the heart of the show was always Carol, who not only made audiences laugh but connected with them on a more personal level , such as at the beginning of each show by involving them in a question and answer session. And at the finish of each show, she would give her trademark tug of her ear (a message to her grandmother that she loved her) and then end with her trademark song, which seemed to perfectly sum up the feelings of everyone watching.

Hillarious show indeed - The world needs more "Carol Burnett" I love this DVD series it really makes me bust my gut on some of those skits.

"I was watching the Tony Danza show a few days ago and one of his guests was Carol Burnett. Watching the old clips from her 70's show really made me want them on DVD so I decided to purchase this set. To my amazement, I found that they were very comprehensive for the really cheap price. A very good buy!!"

- Judy

"Miss the times when sex on TV was implied instead of explicit. Carol had sex on her show but you never had to worry about watching it in your face or what the kids were going to see next. Well done, Carol. "

- Gerald

"It brought back memories of when I watched Carol's show each week and laughed and laughed! I had forgotten. I am so glad I ordered this. "
