While I do wish we could have gotten seasons sets (or a complete series set), I understand that with variety shows, we have to make do with what we can get.

At least I will have some news for the large number of people that have come into my store asking about DVDs for the show...

Were there musical guests on Carol Burnett? I don't recall any, just all sketches. Otherwise I'm not sure why they can't do season sets.

Yes, there were- including this, which was a "mystery" clip to me for a while on an old Beta tape I uncovered- this is all of that show that was recorded on this tape, but it was from the Carol Burnett show:

This show did make it onto one of the mail-order DVDs, I'll buy it just to see the whole show finally! (I guess leaving in the original commercials would be too much to ask?) This comes out a few days before my 40th birthday, so hopefully I'll be able to get the 20-disc set!

What you're referring to was the repackaged syndicated series Carol Burnett and Friends, which basically strung together a collection of sketches from 1972-77 to fill out a half-hour running time (the original episodes with the musical numbers were an hour each).

Are these the same eps. that were released by Columbia House and now repackaged ?

I was only born in 1974, so it'd be even later syndication than that. Not sure what I watched, but I do recall Burnett, et all, doing sketches.

There were 278 shows in 11 years from 1967-1978 that were approx. 50 min. each. You would need about 70 single-sided DVD's (35 double-sided - but who want's that?). Or, about 10 dual-layer BD's to fit everything.

It looks like they're doing 3 episodes per disc for the 2-disc and the 6-disc sets. The 20-disc set can only be split up as 2.5 episodes per disc so halfway through a show you have to go to the next disc. At 4 per disc they could fit the 50 shows and the 10 hours of bonus material on 13 DVD's.

As old as these shows are and with the mono soundtracks, I really don't see the problem with 4 per disc (200 min.).

I really hope they have the blooper where Mama's Family is sitting around listening to the story about the siamese twin elephants that were joined at the trunk. Hilarious.

Don't think that's a blooper. Went out over the air like that.

I hope so. I will be all over that if it is the complete show.
