It’s hard to imagine that there are some episodes of “The Carol Burnett Show” that we haven’t seen yet. No reruns, no web streaming, no DVDs, no blu-ray discs … but yes, it’s true! Until now, that is.
The long-lost episodes from the first five seasons of “The Carol Burnett Show” have not been seen for more than 40 years (and man, do I feel old writing that! I used to watch this show with my parents). But now they’re available from Time Life in a very cool collector’s box.
“The Carol Burnett Show: The Lost Episodes Ultimate Collection” features 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.
Yes, my friends, whether you’re a die-hard, Tarzan-yelling ear-tugger or a newbie discovering the incredible talents of Burnett for the very first time, this set is for you – AND your kids. Remember those shows where the whole family could sit down and watch a show together – as a family? “The Carol Burnett Show” is one of those shows, which makes it all the more precious for families everywhere.

I love it when the cast can’t stop laughing. Here’s a great clip featuring Harvey Korman and Tim Conway. Classic comedians that didn’t need foul language or raunchy jokes to get a laugh. We need those folks again!
