Editorial Reviews

For the first time ever, this release brings together the magic of the holiday season with three classic shows from The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson.

Featuring comedians Garry Shandling and Robin Williams, singer Tony Bennett and the Tonight Show band performing yuletide classics, hilarious holiday skits, a unique medley of traditional carols, timeless monologues from Johnny and a special holiday visit from Bob Hope!

Customer Reviews

If I had done that, I would have saved myself both money and disappointment.

If you don't remember, this was a 30-minute special, mostly music from Doc and the band, and "The Night Before Christmas" narrated by Ed Mcmahon.
Steve Richardson
In the first show, comedian Gary Shandling is introduced and he performs his act.

I was very disappointed with this DVD for the following reasons:

1) The "shows" (all from the '80's) are not full shows. The first 2 shows are less than 30 minutes each and the last is less than 15 minutes (just one act is shown).
2) The monologues have been edited.
3) In the first show, comedian Gary Shandling is introduced and he performs his act. I had assumed that he was the first guest but turns out he is the second act. At one point as he is chatting with Johnny, makes a comment to the guest sitting next to him and we get to see this guest briefly. I believe it is Tony Bennett. I'm guessing that Tony sang and there was a copyright issue that prevented the performance from being on the DVD.
4) The second show had Robin Williams and Bob Hope as guests. This part of the review has to do with the content of the show. I like Bob Hope and was looking forward to seeing him. But Robin Williams kept interrupting, adding jokes of his own. It was really irritating. I can only take Robin Williams in small doses and after his own performance, I wish had would have just been content to sit there and let Bob Hope do his thing.
5) The last show only had one performance, a comedian.

I do not recommend this DVD.

Will I ever learn? Even after feeling ripped off with my last Johnny Carson purchase, I caved and bought this DVD thinking it would be a lot of fun to see some old Johnny shows from Christmas. They promote THREE shows, but they are hacked to bits. Why - given the fact Johnny hosted the Tonight Show for decades - would they include such little content? As long as this company continues to release Johnny DVD's, I wouldn't buy one again. Be warned and save your money!

I was excited to see this collection then very depressed to see the "Christmas With Friends" special was not included. If you don't remember, this was a 30-minute special, mostly music from Doc and the band, and "The Night Before Christmas" narrated by Ed Mcmahon. NBC used to show this on or around Christmas night, when Johnny didn't put on a Tonight Show. The CD of the music is available, but I'd love to have a copy of the show on DVD. This seemed like a natural place to put it, but no such luck.

Another disappointment in the largely disappointing series of Carson DVD's.

I thought the selections provided a good mix between monologues,skits and guests..

In looking at the jacket, i knew what i was getting..the dvd was around 75 minutes long...3 episodes at a time when the Tonight show was 60 minutes...with commercials...made it known that the episodes would not be entire episodes...So based on that..not sure how anyone would NOT know what they were getting..

Given that, it gave a good slice of the times, with good highlights..

My favorites were the skits...especially the one with johnny,doc and ed singing the 12 days of Christmas....

The monologue gave a great idea of what was going on at the time..with a holiday spin..

I loved seeing all of the poinsetta's...that's what i remember the most about the tonight show during the holidays watching johnny.....

It was great..sitting back for 75 minutes and revisting johnny and the tonight show....seemed like good times all over again..ahhhhhhh

I broke my own rule for shopping on Amazon: check out the customer reviews before buying. If I had done that, I would have saved myself both money and disappointment. These episodes are edited crudely (very choppy) and on my copy, the sound and picture are not in sync. There are 3 episode included here, all reduced to fit in 72 minutes, so you get very little continuity.

I miss Johnny Carson, but this is no way to remember him.

We own every single Johnny Carson DVD and set and we absolutely LOVED our first view of this Johnny Carson Christmas Collection. While it could've been better if they would have included more complete episodes, it has all of the best highlights and moments and probably cut out of few that were less memorable. Two thumbs up!
