The Carol Burnett Show turns 50! To celebrate the momentous occasion, CBS honored the groundbreaking comedy series with The Carol Burnett Show 50th Anniversary Special, which aired to a whopping 15.4 million viewers on Sunday, December 3, 2017.
Now, with the Carol Burnett Show 50th Anniversary Special DVD, home audiences can join the party and laugh along with Carol and her famous friends, as they revisit the show's most hilarious clips, catch up with cast members, and enjoy brand-new musical performances!
Carol Burnett has always been a favorite of mine. I remember watching re-runs of her comedy show (I was born in the early 70s) and also watching her on Mama's Family. She is truly a comedic genius. Who can forget her famous Scarlett from Gone With The Wind skit?
Highlights of the Carol Burnett 50th anniversary celebrate DVD include:
- The most uproarious clips from the landmark series, including “Went With The Wind,” “The Dentist,” “Tudball & Wiggins” and “The Family”
- Carol does a bit of her beloved Q&A with the star-studded 50th Anniversary audience including questions from Pat Boone and Tom Selleck!
- Carol's guests try out her famous Tarzan yell – Bill Hader, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, and Tracee Ellis Ross all give it a go, but a late, video entry wins the day – Steve Carell!
- Jim Carrey's 10-year-old self-re-enacts receiving a reply to his Carol Burnett Show fan letter
- Stephen Colbert, Steve Lawrence, Bernadette Peters, Kristin Chenoweth and Carol all come together for a brand-new musical number
- And Harry Connick, Jr. and Carol close out the night with an emotional performance of the show's theme song – “I'm So Glad We Had This Time Together”
- Exclusive new bonus features including red-carpet footage, backstage interviews, and anniversary wishes from Carol's friends and fans

This DVD would make a great gift for any Carol Burnett fan or a fan of classic television. They sure don't make television the way they used to. My husband and I tend to watch classic television more than what is currently on the air.
