Carol Burnett Show: The Lost Episodes
6-DVD set
Starring Carol Burnett, Harvey Korman, Vicki Lawrence, Tim Conway
TML Entertainment
Release date: September 15, 2015

The Carol Burnett Show was a sprawling, hilarious variety program which was a staple of television during the late 1960s to the 1970s and hosted a virtual A to Z of guest stars, not to mention a highly talented and memorable repertory cast of regulars. All these years later, Carol Burnett Show: The Lost Episodes is being released as a 6-DVD set, which showcases the Queen of Television comedy.

For decades in syndication, scores of audiences watched, watched, and watched again the half-hour program which siphoned down the original hour-long episodes which aired from mainly the show’s second half of its run on CBS. Entitled Carol Burnett and Friends, it was to many that Carol Burnett and her zany cast of regulars (Harvey Korman, Vicki Lawrence, and Tim Conway among them) performed in scores of sketches and variety numbers, many of which satirized popular culture and showcased a wide array of characterizations, ranging from the sublime to the absolute ridiculous.

Horton Hears A Who!
Single-Disc Edition
Directed by Jimmy Hayward & Steve Martino
Starring Jim Carrey, Steve Carrell, Carol Burnett, Seth Rogen, Will Arnett, Jonah Hill, Isla Fisher
Fox Home Entertainment
Release Date: December 9, 2008

Out of all of the original Dr. Seuss books and cartoons to be adapted to movie form, Horton Hears A Who! is the first to go all CG, differentiating itself from The Grinch Who Stole Christmas and The Cat in the Hat.

The movie follows Horton (Jim Carrey), a friendly and innocent elephant teacher who thinks that he hears a noise from a small speck on top of a small flower and comes to believe that this small speck holds a world of tiny people, to which most of the other animals think he’s absolutely nuts. In time, he finds a way to communicate with the Mayor of this tiny world (Steve Carrell), known as of Whoville. The Mayer tells Horton that his continuous movement is messing up the little world’s climate and will eventually destroy everything. This sets Horton off on a journey to find the perfect spot to safely put them while trying to avoid an extremely tyrannical soccer mom kangaroo (Carol Burnett), her hired vulture (Will Arnett), and a grab bag of other speedbumps along the way.
