During the late-'60s, CBS was "The Carol Burnett Show" network, a joking reference based on the program's widespread popularity and huge ratings. Yet the first five seasons have never resurfaced - no reruns, streaming video, DVDs or other formats - until now. Time Life introduces "The Carol Burnett Show: The Lost Episodes," which bring back many unforgettable moments from the show's groundbreaking years. Our special 6-DVD set features sixteen original broadcast episodes from Seasons 1 - 5 (1967-1972), hand-picked by Carol herself. These true treasures from the vault haven't been seen since their original airing more than forty years ago! You'll see the very first steps of a TV icon, the magic of Carol's cast coming together, and an incredible array of guest stars including Carol's own hero, Lucille Ball, the first performances of many of her famous sketches, plus much more. Jim Nabors, the lone guest on the show's premiere, proves why he became Carol's "good-luck charm" and returned to kick off each new season. Featuring the first performances of these side-splitting sketches: "As the Stomach Turns", "The Old Folks", "Carol & Sis", and "Alice Portnoy." Also, movie parody "Naughty Rosemarie" and a salute to MGM Studios. Guest Stars include: Don Adams, Lucille Ball, Bing Crosby, Phyllis Diller, Nanette Fabray, Andy Griffith, Steve Lawrence, Paul Lynde, Jim Nabors, Bob Newhart, Bernadette Peters, Burt Reynolds, Don Rickles, Mel Tormé and Flip Wilson.
