There is almost certainly much more material available in Carson's salt-mine vaults than can possibly be presented here. After all, 30 years of comedy 3 to 5 nights a week creates an awful lot of humor and wit. In fact, that's not all there is, because there is a new release available on DVD: "The Tonight Show: Return to Studio One, 3/6/69", a lost episode rediscovered rather recently in the hands of the Armed Forces Television Network, and now available through Amazon. Also there are DVDs available exclusively through the Carson Club: "Tonight Show Memories", "Johnny's Animal Hijinks", "Tonight Show Comedians Vol. 1", "Tonight Show Comedians Vol. 2", and the six program discs in the "Carson Club" series itself.
I don't mean to serve as a "plug" for Carson's complete catalog of DVDs here. I am trying to convey my utter enthusiasm for The Ultimate Carson Collection, and that it makes me want more of The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. If the folks at the Carson Club fail to send me review copies of the other discs, then I know what I'm asking for this holiday season!
In the meantime, I'll be overjoyed to watch this compilation again and again. It has a high repeat-viewing factor, making it well worth the asking price. No matter your age, you'll enjoy watching Johnny Carson on The Ultimate Carson Collection DVDs, which I cannot recommend more highly. If you didn't watch his show when it first aired, then you wanted to stay up past your bedtime so you could watch his show. OR you were conceived while your parents had the show on in the background. In any case, we all owe lots to Johnny. And he'll reward us on this assemblage of DVDs, by giving us a belly full of laughs. Join Johnny Carson, Ed McMahon, and Doc Severinsen for the best late-night show there ever was. Or possibly will be.
