Contest Time! Win The Carol Burnett Show: The Lost Episodes Arriving On DVD September 15th!
Carol Burnett is a television legend, and I have to tell you, I’m a huge fan. She ushered in the age of sketch comedy. Who can forget the classic “family” and “Eunice” sketches? Hilarious!
She’s a amazing performer and now a new collection of her work, THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW: THE LOST EPISODES is going to be available.
I’m sure you’re asking yourself, how could we have lost any of Carol Burnett’s work! But so much of our classic television has been lost over time.
This is why I’m really thankful to the folks at Time Life who have rescued so many series and restored them. They’ve done the same for THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW: THE LOST EPISODES.
And… Here’s the best part… You can win a copy right here!

I have actually not watched the show but have seen short clips before and liked it. Just don’t know where to watch all of it yet.
The Scarlet O’hara curtain dress is a classic!
One of the best shows on TV when i was a kid.
Her and the rest of the cast barely making it through sketches with out cracking up….. Tim Conway and Harvey Kietel busting up is hilarious.
Their parody of Gone with the Wind was the funniest sketch I have seen on TV.
It was one of the few shows on tv that we watched together as a family, miss those days, miss that show! Gone with the Wind was one of my favorites.
Her tugging on her ear to say hi to her daughter.
When she pulled on her ear every night to tell her grandmother she loved her.
Any of the movie parodies. The Born to be Bad, Torch Song and Rebecca where so close that when I saw the originals as an adult, half the fun was remember having seen Carol do the parodies as a child.
I don’t really remember much, but I remember watching with my mom and laughing a lot! Thank you for the chance to win!!!
I think the best one Tim was making them all laugh saying someone looked like an alien and it goes on and on, and then Carol turns to Mama and asks her and she comes right out with a straight face no smile at all & calls the guy an Ass hole… Harvey C. falls on the floor & so does Tim Conway laughing and Carol is busting a got and Mama isn’t sitting there looking at them like they’re crazy straight faced. bwahahahahaha
watching it with me mom when i was a kid, can’t remember a lot of it but was all good
My favorite carol moment is anytime Mrs Wiggins shows up!
I loved all her shows and skits. I most remember the tugging of her ear at the end of the show
My favorite Carol Burnett memory is watching her Gone with the Wind sketch. Thanks for the giveaway. I hope that I win.
I use to watch this show with my Mom. My favorite part was when she did her Tarzan yell.
I love watching these show I watch her all the time what great laughs that anyone can watch. my favorite memory I really don’t know may be when she was ms. wiggins
Gone with the Wind sketch would be my favorite. My daughter’s teacher wrote that episode.
I bet its everyone’s. The parody of Gone with the Wind when Carol comes down the stairs with the draperies around her as a gown (with the hanging rod still attached, Makes me laugh just to think about it.
My favorite memory is the episode where they did a take off of the As The World Turns with Bernadette Peters.
Mr Tudball and his secretary..the original big booty!
