Time to start singing our favorite Christmas Carol.
StarVista and Time-Life have issued this nifty exclusive, limited-edition plate celebrating Carol’s comic genius and beloved characters from The Carol Burnett Show.
Several of her zaniest and best-loved characters—including Eunice, Mrs. Wiggins, Starlet O'Hara—live on in this full-color porcelain plate that features Carol in her signature goodnight ear-tug.
The plate is hand-crafted of lustrous Heirloom Porcelain and lavished with 22-karat gold; it's 8 1/2-inch in diameter and features Carol's replica signature in 22K gold and a hand-numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
Look no further than The Carol Burnett Show: Christmas With Carol, her first holiday-themed DVD. This all-new collection brings together three hours of some of the most memorable holiday episodes and sketches from The Carol Burnett Show, sure to have viewers ho-ho-ho’ing their way through the holidays.
The DVD features two complete holiday episodes:
Original Air Date: December 21, 1974
Looking for a Norman Rockwell–style Christmas, merry and stress-free? Then avoid the Higgins residence. Santa would. Despite Eunice’s “Merry Xmas” apron and Ed’s mile-wide red tie, there’s no joy in the house once Eunice’s younger brother Larry (Alan Alda) and Mama arrive. They all act like they sat on a bough of holly. Ed’s ready and eager to capture every Kodak-Christmas moment for posterity. On a happier note, Carol and Alda find peace amid the commercial holiday hustle and bustle. He’s a soon-to-be unemployed department store Santa, while she’s all thumbs over in the gift-wrapping section. Their "Nobody Does It Like Me" duet fits like a warm Christmas sweater.
Original Air Date: December 18, 1977
Mr. Tudball and Mrs. Wiggins aren’t known for their rapport or business smarts. She moves about a mile an hour, and he talks with a bizarre hybrid accent. They awkwardly observe the “mistletoe” tradition. Once he breaks out some champagne, the boss and his secretary finally communicate—sort of. Tudball’s wife, played by Vicki Lawrence, pays a surprise visit to the office and catches them with their guards down, so to speak. Vicki and Tim Conway carefully measure Carol for a Christmas present, a dress and hat combo that looks like the handiwork of a true idiot. The smart money’s on Tim. Carol’s concluding song celebrates Christmas and all holidays of the year, large and small.
Add in some hilarious bonus sketches (“Christmas Night Quarrel” with Carol and Sid Caesar); “Charwoman: Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” and a Q&A w/Jonathan Winters (Show #017, December 25, 1967) and “The Twelve Days after Christmas” (Show #114, December 30, 1968) and you have a new Christmas tradition, to be watched and rewatched with the family every holiday season!
