Features the famous lost episode Return to Studio One. The stuff of showbiz legend, this famous "lost" episode of The Tonight Show (most of the tapes from the first 10 years of The Tonight Show were accidentally erased) defines the essence of live television. It is a kind of magic that can't be rehearsed, recycled, or reproduced, but thanks to this recent discovery, we can now return to Studio One to witness Johnny and his guests working witout a net. Originally recorded on two-inch videotape, the show was later transferred to film for broadcast on the Armed Forces Network. It was this film version that was eventually tracked down and identified among 10,000 Tonight Show tapes 54 stories underground in a working salt mine somewhere in the middle of Kansas. This show has not been seen since its original broadcast on March 6, 1969.
This classic episode is considered by many as one of the most hilarious in TV history. In March of 1969, Carson took the show on the road from its home in New York to Burbank, California. On this particular night, Johnny and his guests had no idea what was in store for them when Bob Hope and Dean Martin decided to drop in announced, and stole the show. The spontaneous and unrehearsed antics that followed are now a part of show business history.
Loved reliving some of these. Not the best choices however. There were other ones that were more memorable, but still fun.Published 9 months ago by Kira Blaser
What reruns I had seen of Johnny Carson looked hilariously funny. Some of the material on this seemed to be "filler" & not funny.Published 14 months ago by PharmGamesMusic

Goes back to the earliest days with Ed McMahon as Carson's sidekick, and provides a series of short snips out of numerous shows. Read morePublished on August 26, 2010 by Loyd E. Eskildson

No, but the Ultimate Collection does.
(I know this question is two years old but I bet somebody will want to know.)
