The Carol Burnett Show - 'Christmas With Carol' DVD to Include Bonus Content from 1967-68!

StarVista contents listing shows 2 complete Christmas episodes from '74 and '77, and 4 bonus Christmas sketches from the early 'Burngood' years!

Posted by David Lambert
Yesterday we had the scoop about how StarVista Entertainment (formerly Time Life Entertainment) is scheduling a DVD release for The Carol Burnett Show - Christmas With Carol on October 1st, according to an pre-order listing. Since then that big e-tailer's listing has been removed; we're told it was prematurely added their, and that the studio wasn't ready to accept pre-orders quite yet. It will be re-listed at Amazon once the item is formally announced.

While we wait, our contacts at StarVista/Time-Life wanted fans to know how exciting this release is going to be. It includes two complete Christmastime episodes of the show, one from 1974 and the other from 1977. Neither of these, I believe, were included on this studio's previous 22-DVD "Ultimate Collection" set. Also included by StarVista's Christmas With Carol DVDs are 4 entirely new-to-DVD bonus sketches from holiday episodes that aired in 1967 and 1968. These are part of the first five seasons, the "Burngood, Inc." production years, and fans have been hoping to see this material on DVD. StarVista is bringing it. Here's the complete list of contents that the studio has kindly provided us with:
    • Show #813, Original Air Date: December 21, 1974
