LOOKING FOR A NEW HOLIDAY TRADITION THIS COMING SEASON?
LOOK NO FURTHER WITH THIS UPROARIOUS, ALL-NEW
HOLIDAY-THEMED DVD FROM ONE OF TV’S GREATEST COMEDIANS!
THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW: CHRISTMAS WITH CAROL, the TV comedy legend’s very first holiday-themed DVD release! This all-new collection brings together three hours of some of the most memorable holiday episodes and sketches from The Carol Burnett Show, sure to have viewers ho-ho-ho’ing their way through the holidays.
This new DVD features two complete holiday episodes:
- Show #813 (Original Air Date: December 21, 1974) – Looking for a Norman Rockwell-style Christmas, merry and stress-free? Then avoid the Higgins residence. Santa would. Despite Eunice’s “Merry Xmas” apron and Ed’s mile-wide red tie, there’s no joy in the house once Eunice’s younger brother Larry (Alan Alda) and Mama arrive. They all act like they sat on a bough of holly. Ed’s ready and eager to capture every Kodak-Christmas moment for posterity. On a happier note, Carol and Alan Alda find peace amid the commercial holiday hustle and bustle. He’s a soon-to-be unemployed department store Santa, while she’s all thumbs over in the gift-wrapping section. Their Nobody Does It Like Me duet fits like a warm Christmas sweater.
- Show #1113 (Original Air Date: December 18, 1977) – Mr. Tudball and Mrs. Wiggins aren’t known for their rapport or business smarts. She moves about a mile an hour, and he talks with a bizarre hybrid accent. They awkwardly observe the “mistletoe” tradition. Once he breaks out some champagne, the boss and his secretary finally communicate-sort of. Tudball’s wife, played by Vicki Lawrence, pays a surprise visit to the office and catches them with their guards down, so to speak. Vicki and Tim Conway carefully measure Carol for a Christmas present, a dress and hat combo that looks like the handiwork of a true idiot. The smart money’s on Tim. Carol’s concluding song celebrates Christmas and all holidays of the year, large and small.
Add in some hilarious bonus sketches such as “Christmas Night Quarrel” w/ Carol and Sid Caesar, “Charwoman: Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” and Q&A w/Jonathan Winters (Show #017, December 25, 1967) and “The Twelve Days after Christmas” (Show #114, December 30, 1968) and you have a new Christmas tradition, to be watched again and again with the family every holiday season!
