This 2 DVD set includes 4 programs previously available on 4 individual DVDs. It is a great set to get a real feel for Johnny's 30 years on television. Anyone who was a fan loved it when Johnny would interact with his strange animal guests, and Animal Hijinx has some of the best appearances by many furry friends. Kids especially like this one. Tonight Show Memories features short highlights of the most famous moments from the the 30 year history of the show. Return to Studio One is a really interesting full episode from the late 60's - when guests would show up unannounced. Johnny apparently kept a full-stocked bar back stage, and Dean Martin and Bob Hope showed up to have a few drinks and visit unexpectedly. It is terrific to watch television that is not entirely planned and scripted. And the Final Show is a classic in television history. For fans who want more content, I would still advise buying The Ultimate Johnny Carson Collection - His Favorite Moments from The Tonight Show (Vols. 1-3) (1962-1992)over this one, as it has many more hours of content, and then buy Johnny Carson - The Tonight Show: Return to Studio One, 3/6/69as a single disc, but for the price this is a great collection.

If you enjoyed watching Johnny Carson then this would be a good set to own. It's a great alternative to the longer box sets because it only shows the most memorable moments from the Tonight Show in only about two hours. I enjoyed being able to see the comedy duo of Johnny and Ed McMahon again, along with the final episode. I was pleased, but not surprised, to see that clips from shows when Johnny had animals on the set. They were always the most candid and entertaining.

This 2-disc set is a compilation of some of the best moments from the Tonight Show. Johnny Carson was to talk shows as bacon is to a turkey sandwich; he made a good thing great. I agree with the review by Barry O. though; The Ultimate Johnny Carson Collection - His Favorite Moments from The Tonight Show (Vols. 1-3) (1962-1992) has way more content, so if you are a DVD collection purist, you may prefer that.

This DVD set is all my favorite Johnny Carson shows pulled into one. Return to Studio One with Bob Hope and Dean Martin is truly a milestone in comedy, in my opinion. I I'm glad that I was able to make it a part of my collection.

I ORDERED THIS FOR MY FATHER FOR FATHER'S DAY AND GOT ONE FOR MYSELF TOO. WHAT A HOOT!! I WATCHED BOTH DISCS AND COULDN'T WAIT TO GIVE MY DAD HIS COPY. WE LAUGHED OUT LOUD AND WISH JOHNNY WAS STILL AROUND TO ENTERTAIN US. WHAT A GREAT COMEDIAN. WHAT TIMING AND PERSONALITY. IT SHOWED THAT HE LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF BEING ON STAGE. I RECOMMEND THIS DVD TO ANYONE WHO WANTS TO GO BACK IN TIME AND ENJOY THE COMEDY OF THIS GENIUS.

Beautiful picture quality but there wasnt enough material on these discs to warrant full purchase price. One only had less than 45 minutes of highlights. Good thing this was on a half price sale when i purchased it.

I have always loved the Johnny Carson brand of humor. Who else has come up with so many extra persona's, such as the Great Carmak. This set of 2 DVD's was a good mix of some of his funniest shows.

No one since has measured up to his sharp wit and instant comeback's. My husband and I will play this many times. Our children were children when Johnny was around and I think they will appreciate his humor more now that they are adults and have children of their own.

Sent this along with other DVDs for my Dad. He has moderate Altzheimers and does not watch much TV. However, he likes some of these old shows. So far, he likes these Johnny Carson clips, Dean Martin and Jack Benny the best.
