Editorial Reviews

One show in television history, perhaps more than any other, defines the standards of contemporary American entertainment today: The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson. | After an introduction by Groucho Marx, Johnny stepped through the curtain and on to the stage for the first time in 1962. Broadcasting from Studio 6-B in New York City, Johnny infused his late night program with a sparkle of showbiz mixed with boyish charm and a razor sharp wit that never missed its mark. On any given night there was always a sense that anything could happen ... and with Johnny s band of mischief makers, it usually did. | Johnny s easy going interview style and a mastery of the nightly monologue gave an audience of 12 million fans reason enough to tune in every night. The critically acclaimed and Emmy award winning show featured career defining performances, legendary hijinks and classic routines from the world s funniest comedians. From the 60 s into the 90 s, The Tonight Show welcomed a parade of Hollywood royalty and some of the most entertaining and influential people of the 20th century. | His enduring legacy of laughter is a timeless gift that will live on through this remarkable 12 disc collection. After 30 years, 4,500 shows and 25,000 guests, his eyes still twinkle, his laugh still echoes and the stars still shine ... Heeere s Johnny!! | This Definitive DVD Collection includes the following: | 1. Timeless Moments: Capturing Johnny at his best, these 6 DVDs include classic Carson characters, The Mighty Carson Art Players, guest stars, favorite comedians and more. Timeless Moments was previously only available to Carson Club members and is now only available through the Heeere's Johnny collection. | 2. The Original Ultimate Collection: The 3 DVD collection that started it all! From the 60 s to the 90 s, this best selling collection features 7 hours of Johnny s favorite moments from three decades of The Tonight Show. | 3. Stand-Up Comedians: Featuring a virtual who s-who of the funniest comedians ever to appear on The Tonight Show. Laugh along with Johnny and enjoy 20 classic stand-up routines. | 4. Carson Country: Great music, hilarious tall tales and homespun humor on this one-of-a-kind collection of country legends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Same great stuff...just the same for less. October 29, 2007
Wish this box set existed a year ago when I bought two of the Johnny Carson collections: The Ultimate Collection & Timeless Moments. For those of you who don't own any Carson yet, you should definitely think about getting Heeere's Johnny. I love the two sets that I already have and I suppose you'd actually be getting a lot more here for less than I paid. My only complaint is that there's no new material that is never-before-seen in the other collections

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Collection of Classic Carson Comedy December 2, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was thrilled to see the "Heeere's Johnny" DVD collection released on I was able to pre-order the set for $69.99 and I received it just one day after the official release date. My wife and I have been slowly working our way through the collection, one DVD at a time. Johnny is an icon and legend of late night television. This collection does a great job of spanning much of Johnny's years of being the Tonight Show host. However, the picture and sound quality is sometime quite bad. The overall picture quality is average at best. I would have thought that the old video would have gone through some sort of restoration process. Obviously this isn't the case in this collection. There are some scenes that flicker and have lines running through them, and the sound sometimes becomes garbled. Another dissapointment is that this collection has no specific order. There is no way to easily work your way from oldest to newest, or in any other manner. This collection is actually made up of several other collections. One of the included collections is made entirely of stand-up commedian guests that appeared on The Tonight Show. I bought this to watch Johnny, not to see a young Jerry Seinfeld, or the early (and yet still irritating) years of Rosanne Baar.

Overall this is an excellent collection of Johnny Carson's golden years in television. I just wish it was better organized, had more clips of Johnny himself, and wish the video and audio had gone through some sort of restoration process. For the money this is definately a good buy, if you are a die hard Carson fan. =o)

1.0 out of 5 stars Been there, done this October 6, 2007
Johnny Carson was awesome...but he was on TV for decades. So why does this company continue to rehash the same stuff, only with different packaging? The Carson Tonight Show years were vast and they could be releasing so much MORE content, but instead it's the same clips over and over again. I bought the "Ultimate Collection" originally and LOVED it. Then, they changed the box cover which seemed to be misleading to fans as though it was something different. Now, this mega-box includes the "Ultimate Collectin" AGAIN! If you are a Johnny fan like me, then you may have purchased the DVDs that were only available through the Carson Club on his website. Well, be warned...all of those titles that were supposedly exclusive to the Carson Club are also in this box! My guess is the die-hard Carson fans have every bit of this material already. Check what you have and know what this is beofre you spend a dime!

3.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable July 20, 2009
By Bt
This is the same product as the other "Here's Johnny" set except this one has 1 disc (60 plus minutes) of extra material. It's the same thing and they added the "Holiday" moniker because the extra disc is 3 "holiday" episodes. This is an insult to buyers of the previous set. If you forked out major bucks for the other set, I just thought you might like to know what you're gettihg here. The Carson dvd treatment has been a major disappointment to say the least. Johnny Carson was a monument to television. It's mind-boggling how this program has not received first class distribution. This is 5 stars for what you get, but I trimmed it for the shabby treament that, overall we're getting.

1.0 out of 5 stars Carson Is King, But Show Us Something New! October 16, 2007
This is the second time (at least) that this company has put previously released material in a new wrapper. 30 years of Carson and we keep getting a rehash (and rehash of rehash!) of previous titles. If the company and Mr. Carson's estate are too inept or lazy to dig a little deeper into the tens of thousands of hours of available Carson-era "Tonight Show" material, then just release DVDs of the old syndicated cut-up series "Carson's Comedy Classics", or even the old prime-time anniversary specials. We'd finally get to see some new material with minimal effort on the company's end.

1.0 out of 5 stars Warning September 14, 2007
By MrQ
Hold your wallets until more is known.

The description says that the The Ultimate Johnny Carson Collection is included. If that is so, then you may not want this set either. The Ultimate Collection is cropped---especially the last show---the entire music segment is deleted.

I fully understand why something like this can happen. The music publishers believe their product is gold and ask ridiculous licensing fees to have their music in these box sets. Regardless, no warning is given to the consumer from the DVD makers, so that is the reason for this early review. Remember, once you break the seal, your money is gone.

And what have we been given? Just a mere smattering of the performers, skits, music and desk side chatter from the world's ultimate next day's water cooler show. I cannot believe it!

Please issue DVDs of selected full shows. I remember that so many shows were great not because of any single performer but because of the entirety of the whole program, from monologue to conclusion.

I recently purchased the big box set and it's really nice to have these performances of this comedian or that country star. Or some of the memories and the heart breaking last two shows. I gave it 5 stars just for the emotional aspects, the nostaligic reasons, to be able to once again catch a few glimpses of the finest talk and entertainment show this nation's ever had. I owe Johnny that.

But really what's really missing are the banter between Johnny and his many personal close friends and fellow performers, the interviews, Johnny just being Johnny letting others have their time in the spot light but always adding his quips and charming laughter, his suave cosmopolitan presence anchoring the whole thing.

In all these DVDs there's really precious little of Johnny himself!

We fans, fans of all ages, would greatly appreciate having DVDs of many selected full shows. Especially at its peak during the late '60s through the '70s when so many of the classic stars, now long gone (Bob Hope, Dean Martin, etc) AND the up and coming newer stars who are still around today were all mingling together on the hour and a half shows.

Whole DVDs could be devoted to the appearances of specific guests like Jimmy Stewart, Bob Hope, and so many others.

Not only were there an awful lot of incredibly funny stuff back then.
