The Carol Burnett Prime Time Specials Collection, not seen since their original air dates include Calamity Jane, Carol and Company (an evening with Carol Burnett), Carol Plus Two with Lucille Ball and Carol and Julie at Carnegie Hall. These specials were nominated for multiple awards including a Prime Time Emmy win for An evening with Carol Burnett Plus an Emmy and Golden Globe win for Carol Burnett's famous pairing with Julie Andrews in Carol and Julie at Carnegie Hall!

5.0 out of 5 stars Extra SPECIAL added to release June 18, 2012
Verified Purchase
The Special "Once Upon A Matress" was just listed as being included to this set. So this makes 5 Carol Special for this set.

Also : eOne has revealed the bonus material: "special DVD features include commentary by Carol Burnett, and a Carol Burnett interview discussing what it was like to perform on these amazing specials." There's also a 20-page Prime Time Specials keepsake collectors edition memorabilia scrapbook, plus 3 special hour-long bonus episode from The Gary Moore Show (the program which had Carol's very first starring role on TV).

Carol Burnett - The Prime Time Specials Collection: These all pre-date her popular variety show.

1) Julie and Carol at Carnegie Hall (1962) with Julie Andrews & Randy Doney (not to be confused with the later "Julie & Carol Together Again" VHS tape.)
Shot on videotape and kinescope film. A kinescope clip can be seen in the 1988 documentary "Television" and a video clip can be seen in the "CBS at 75" anniversary special from 2003.
In one sketch "The Sound of Music" is parodied three years before Julie Andrews starred in the movie version. (This clip is included on the 45th Anniversary Blu-Ray of the movie The Sound of Music.)
At one point Carol Burnett "accidentally" hit's Julie Andrews' in the stomach while taking a bow (this was scripted as part of the number they had just performed). Just before the show Andrews had found out she was pregnant and she and Burnett had decided not to do the hit, but Burnett simply forgot. As soon as this happens you see Burnett break character and ask if Andrews is OK.

2) Calamity Jane (1963) with Art Lund, Bernard West, Beryl Towbin, Don Chastain, Mark Harris, Cathryn Damon.

3) An Evening with Carol Burnett (1963) with Robert Preston

4) Carol + 2, (1966) with Lucille Ball & Zero Mostel

***2013 UPDATE***
Legend is currently having legal issues with Carol Burnett (over their misleading Christmas DVD release) so the fate of this project is unknown.
