I remember Harvey Korman and Tim Conway cracking each other up, they could hard keep a straight face and get their lines out! Loved that show!

We would love to add this wonderful prize of Carol Burnett DVDs to our library collection for our community. With these difficult economic times, I know that our library patrons would be lifted up by watching her shows. Laughter is good medicine!

Loved Mrs. Wiggins and Mr. Tudball. So many great memories of that show. You could really see the love and respect between Carol, Harvey and Tim.

August 13, 2012 at 12:51 PM

Love Carol in so many things, but haven’t ever gotten to see the show…

August 13, 2012 at 12:51 PM

Carol Burnett Show was the highlight of variety shows for us ’70s Kids. Such wonderful memories that I’d love to share again!

August 13, 2012 at 12:53 PM

Who doesnt love Carol’s & company’s version of Gone with the Wind? “something i saw in the window!”

The Carol Burnett Show is the connective tissue in my relationship with my mother. It was the show we would always make a point to sit down to watch together, and our relationship today is still peppered with references to this fantastic show.

We were lucky enough to catch Tim Conway and Harvey Korman when they toured their live show not long before Harvey Korman died, and they were as funny as they ever were.

Watching the Carol Burnett Show was one of the highlights of my family’s week. We would all come together as a family and crack up laughing at their antics! My father was a very tactiturn man but even he would laugh and shake his head at the skits. I can’t think of a single television show since that has brought a family together the way this one did and as an adult with children of my own, we always watched this together and the enjoyment was like going back to my childhood once again.

I am a 20-year old who discovered The Carol Burnett Show via YouTube. Over time, I have become an immense fan. Nothing on television today equates to it. Everything from the quality of writing, the acting, even the set design and the costumes wipes the floor with anything we watch today. To own such a beautifully-packaged collection – a piece of history – would be a dream come true.

Watching Carol Burnett with my mother has been a great memory over the years. Every Friday night. And now we still watch a nearly worn out “Best of DVD” featuring my favorite scene: Scarlett draped in Gone With the Wind curtains — with rod. Not to mention her brief stint as as stewardess, Harvey Korman in first class, and Tim Conway in “economy.” I promise you that if we win this DVD collection that you’re so generous to offer … you will make my mother very happy! And lately I need to make some points with her. :-)

My family would always gather to watch the show together. Laughing hysterically at the crazy sketches. The next day, my sisters and our neighborhood friends would re-enact the sketches and howl all over again. I have such great memories of the show. And I’ve never been able to watch Gone With The Wind because of that crazy spoof. “I don’t know ‘nothin bout birthin’ no babies!”

August 13, 2012 at 4:47 PM

Ah the Carol Burnett show, I don’t think there is a person out there who doesn’t have great memories of that show. I also grew up watching it with my Mom and Dad, and also my grandparents when we would go and visit them. There hasn’t been a show out there like it since, which is why I am so glad there is a box sex available so you can relive those great episodes over and over again. Thanks for the chance.

August 13, 2012 at 7:30 PM

Tim Conway and Harvey Korman trying to break each other up was the best part of the show. I am looking forward to seeing the extra features on the DVDs.

August 13, 2012 at 7:35 PM

I used to love this show as a kid. Tim Conway’s facial expressions cracked me up every time.

August 13, 2012 at 8:06 PM

I can sum up Carol and the rest of the cast in one 3 syllable word:
I pretended to be Eunice when I was a child! The rest of the world was against ME ! As a comedic actor I learned so much from her as well as the rest of the gang.I have read several books Carol has written but my favorite was a compilation of hilarious fan mail sent to her from children. I was even lucky enough to see her one woman show a few years back and loved it. Most of all I admire her strength to survive being a parent who lost her child to cancer. From her humble beginnings to the legend she has become….this is one strong lady who never ever lost her sense of humor! The Carol Burnett Show is simply timeless.

August 13, 2012 at 8:10 PM

Just have look at the news today, there is so much to be stressed and upset about. Laughter has proven therapeutic effects, and this show was performed by all-time masters. The exemplary work of these wonderful people (who provided some of my happiest moments growing up) could add years to anyone’s life! The Carol Burnett Show is the best kind of pure comic relief – and boy, do we need it now!

August 13, 2012 at 10:05 PM

always loved Harvey Corman and Tim Conway cracking each other up

Burnett’s one of the great classic female comics. I used to watch her show, & would love to revisit it by having my own copy of the DVD.

August 14, 2012 at 4:06 AM

Our 7 yr.old son loves to watch all the old shows with us. Not many of the shows on tv today are appropriate for families to watch, even the ones shown during the supposed “family/primetime hour”. It is also difficult to find shows where he can really understand all of the comedy as he has Aspergers and has difficulty getting subtle or sarcastic humor, he can not easily “read” facial expressions and often has to ask if someone is making a joke, “are they being sarcastic, do they mean that, are they trying to be mean or funny?”. He has seen the PBS special about Ms. Burnett and loved it! The skits the program featured made him laugh quite a bit and he understood it all. He really got a kick out of the “old man” character that Tim Conway played! I wish we had been able to tape the program for him because he asked when these funny people would be on again. Please consider our family when choosing a recipient for these DVDs. Thank you for your time and consideration. Have a great day!

I’d love to win it cuz I can always use a few laughs. It improves my disposition!

August 16, 2012 at 8:45 AM

loved tim conway!

August 17, 2012 at 4:29 PM

Oh my. I grew up with the gang. They were a not miss. Truly, they were my inspiration for going into acting which I still dabble in many years later. It was even my major in college. She, and the rest of the team are truly my role models in terms of comedic timing. One of my favorites was the speakerphone scene and “Mrs. Wiggins” not quite getting it right. PLEASE! Make me a happier middle aged man and let me share my inspiration with my family.

August 17, 2012 at 6:34 PM

I haven’t seen this show in YEARS!!!

August 17, 2012 at 9:54 PM

Loved the Carol Burnett show…great that it’s coming out on dvd

August 18, 2012 at 4:49 PM

Any moment when one of the cast got to make Harvey laugh out of character was priceless.

August 18, 2012 at 10:02 PM

Oh my goodness! Who doesn’t love the Carol Burnett shows? The classic sketches are indelible. The comedy was clean and fit for the entire family. No worries about the kids watching such funny vignettes from Harvey’s and Tim’s dental scenes to the Scarlet Ohara scenes. Just amazing writing and acting! Wish we had something like this in today’s primetime TV.

August 19, 2012 at 12:00 PM

I want to be able to see Tim Conway breaking up Harvey Korman whenever I wanted to. And I can’t get enough of Carol’s parody of Gone With the Wind. The line about her drapery dress (it’s something I saw in the window)cracks me up every time.

August 19, 2012 at 1:04 PM

I agree with the folks who loved watching Tim Conway and Harvey Korman crack up. And there was always that great pause when Carol did something outrageous (coming down the stairs with the curtain rod in her dress in the GWTW parody) and just stood there, soaking up the audience’s energy.

I Want The Carroll Burnett Show Ultimate Edition Because The Show Is Laugh Out Loud Funny

August 19, 2012 at 11:30 PM

I love the Carol Burnett Show. But unfortunately it isn’t on tv. I would love to be able to sit on the couch and watch a full show uninterupted.

August 19, 2012 at 11:32 PM

What better way to teach my son what great comedy is. What is comedy and what is being rude. He’s 8 and what he thinks is funny usually is just rude.

August 19, 2012 at 11:35 PM

A bag of popcorn, the Carol Burnett show, and family time. What a great combination! Nothing compares in todays line ups.

August 19, 2012 at 11:37 PM

Used to watch this show as a kid along with my family. I always loved “Mama’s Family” and Mrs. Wiggins. Tim Conway and Harvey Korman cracking each other up was always fun to watch. Would love to win this to rewatch and laugh at real comedy. Unfortunately, this type of comedy show would never make it on tv these days. That’s sad.

August 19, 2012 at 11:48 PM

A friend & I were just discussing how much we missed the show last night & wished there was a way we could watch it again. It was a family favorite growing up – even my grandmother who couldnt understand English loved it! As a young refugee girl, Carol not only inspired me with her comedic chops but showed me that a woman can be a successful leader. I still admire her today & would love to have the Carol Burnett show DVD set to let my daughters see what a great idol she is!

August 20, 2012 at 7:56 AM

The Carol Burnett show was a fixture in my house growing up. My first introduction to comedy. I grew to love laying on the floor as my parents sat on the couch with the show coming from our big tube tv. Fire crackling and milk and cookies along with Tim Conway and Carol brought laughter and a warm evening.

October 17, 2012 at 12:33 PM

Just want to say thanks again for the great giveaway! Happy to be the winner!!!

October 17, 2012 at 1:16 PM

Congratulations! Enjoy the set!
