    One of my big wish-list items would be complete seasons of The Carol Burnett Show on DVD. I would buy all 11 seasons!!

    As far as I know there have never been a release of the first 5 years of the show. In fact, I don't believe that those seasons have ever been rerun in any form outside of the possible summer reruns that would have occured when those seasons were originally aired.

    Those seasons have never been officially released and do not exist outside of illegal pirated/bootleg editions. Sorry.

    Even then, I highly doubt that more than just a few assorted episodes from those first five seasons are even in bootleg circles, let alone complete seasons. Since it's a videotaped show (rather than film), there won't be the usual smattering of 16mm/35mm prints doing the rounds with film collectors, and since those first five seasons would not have been re-shown outside of their original seasons, very few home video recoding devices would have been around at that time, either (mostly wealthy individuals or libraries/archives like UCLA, who I think have a few in B/W reel-to-reel).
    Also, I'm pretty sure the illegal "season sets" that do the rounds are just the 1/2 hour syndicated "...and Friends" anyway.
