This DVD purports to be a compendium of early TV comedy, some of which I recall. Problems: some of the most important performers of the era are left out, a couple of minor performers selected are not classics, and the routines included are by far not their best. My advice is to skip this one and opt for the funniest moments or blooper DVDs of specific shows, such as Carol Burnett's.

Look at the review for "TELEVISION'S Greatest Comedians." (The VHS.) Does the cover look familiar? Read my review
of the VHS. It looks as if they put the same crap on to a DVD. Sorry to be blunt, but it really is
a waste of money and time, if it's the same unfunny collection that was on the VHS.

These were not really funny episodes. They had so much better laughs in my day. I thought that's what I was getting, but NO.
