    This link provides a bit more detail about the set's contents. It's good to see that Madeline Kahn's episode will be included. I suspected it would be, but it's nice to have confirmation.

    Yes we've had that info posted on another thread here, it is unfortunate they are calling the four divisions within the set "Seasons." A very Bad inaccurate and misleading Idea.
    That said, I ordered it already.

    It's obviously a stupid idea from someone in marketing who has no real knowledge of the product.

    Exactly...these are not seasons but hand-picked episodes by Carol herself, and I believe the same applies with the 18-episode version.

    I hate to say it but have to wonder if this choice indicates the level of knowledge of whomever is handling this project. It had to be approved by somebody, right? Shouldn't that somebody know enough about this show and it's situation to at least realize that the word "seasons" is wildly inaccurate?

    tvshowsondvd.com just posted more detail news on the Ultimate Carol Burnett Show Box set:
    http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/news/Carol-Burnett-The-Ultimate-Collection/17236
    Looks like will be getting more rare interview segments from Tim Conway and Harvey Korman. Also very happy they are including some of my favorite skits "Snow White: 15 Years Later" and "The Dentist", which both were never on The Columbia House or the Guther-Renky releases.!!! Plus another skit with my other favorite red-head.....Lucille Ball. Glad I preordered this set.....looking forward to seeing these rare gems. :cool:

    Can anyone figure out if there is one book now or three? The references in the press release don't really make that clear - some titles are used to refer to a book and a video, so it's kinda confusing, no?

    Look at the title of the "memory book" in the press release, and look at the title of the book in the picture. Then look at the other extras called "bump up the lights" and one of those segments has the same title as the book in the press release.

    Hi guys -- I run ecommerce at Time Life and I hope i can help answer some questions occasionally and this is not too much of an intrusion. We love the threads on htf since you guys are so knowledgeable. I will do my best to be responsive but the full time job will pull me away some times. Will do my best.
    "Seasons" -- 100% a function of our new website design; not our ignorance. The designers hard-coded that into the templates and we've got a few enhancements ahead of that fix to be released such as fixing order tracking. We'll get the option to call it Seasons or Volumes or Discs as appropriate. It has rankled us here for sure.
    Episodes -- product teams think teasing the episodes are good for the general public. they're not really trying to hide anything. you guys are a different audience, so we'll see what we can do to get them posted early. Product ships in a few weeks, so it can't stay a mystery forever. I *CAN* tell you there's a lot of good Value Added Material on it.
    So, helpful? Intrusion? LMK.
    JB

    ? Looking at the official press release and the official TL website, I see mention of one 20-page book and photos showing one book. I'm not what you're seeing, or what I'm missing.

    Welcome John (timelifejb) to the forum!!! I really appreciate your company releasing this Ultimate Collection of "The Carol Burnett Show". I am so looking forward to this new collection (mine is already been preordered). From my research on the announcements of this set, it's great to know that 2 skits "The Dentist" and "Snow White: 15 years Later" are included on this set (two of the funniest skits from the show). These were not included in the Columbia House version of "The Carol Burnett Show" (in which I have all 31 DVD's of this set). And happy to know that some of the early skits from the 1st 5 seasons will be included (especially the one with Lucille Ball (I am a huge Lucy fan as well).
    I don't know how much information you can reveal, but I was wondering if you can tell me if the following two skits will be on this set. One skit features Charo and Carol Burnett (as Charo's mother). It's an hysterical skit, and I am hoping this one will be on the Ultimate collection as well. The other skit would be a "Family" skit featuring Eunice, Mama and Ed playing the board game "Sorry" (It's one of the best "Family" skits, imo). Neither one of these skits were on the Columbia House DVD's.....so I really am hoping these will appear on the Ultimate Collection (And don't worry, I am still buying this set no matter what!)
    Like I said, I don't know how much information you can reveal about the set, so if you can't answer my question.....I will eventually find out (in about a month from now). But if you can tell us anything about the set that has not been revealed yet.....it would be greatly appreciated :)
    Thanks and glad you joined us!!!

    The title of the book in the press release is different than the title of the book in the picture.

    You mean the one about the "chorchachitas?" Carol is dressed in the same costume as Charo - except for a big padded butt and droopy beanbag bosoms that swing perilously when she tries to cuci-cuci. I've always liked Charo and she was just as fun in this show.
    The Family "Sorry" sketch sounds like fun too. So far pretty much all the stuff I remember liking is already announced for this set. I remember Joan Rivers doing a monologue from the era when she was funny without really making fun of people. She picked an obviously attractive woman in the audience and went off on how she had let herself go - funny because it clearly wasn't true. I think that may be in this set.
    I have one other hope: that the episodes in the announced Christmas set (likely from the Burngood/Banner era) include Carol singing "The Pretty Little Dolly."
    Does anyone remember a fall 68 episode in which Carol announced in her opening that she had loaned her principal dancer Don Crichton out to appear in a movie with her friend Julie Andrews? Then she showed a clip from the Limehouse Blues number in "STAR!" Now THAT's an episode I'll be shocked to see again. Crichton appeared in Both Julie & Carol specials before and after this, Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center. Classy nice guy. Wish they had interviewed HIM for this set... maybe the next one.
