One of the funniest shows of all time
Dee Dee | USA | 08/15/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Unlike alot of TV DVDs , this show has material that hasn't been seen in eons and boy was it nice to see it again. Ashton Kutcher and Jamie Kennedy aren't fit to take Allen Funt's drive-thru order! Talking Mailbox, Woody Allen dictating a love letter, The Car That Splits in Half, The Guy Sneezing Through the phone. It just doesn't get any funnier. Allen Funt knew that you didn't have to be out and out mean to people to get funny reactions from them, just a little mischievious. The two best examples of this are the guy who steals tips off of a diner counter and the guy who "hitches a ride" under people's umbrellas. The people in these films are just subtly messed with and the results are hysterical.
Of course the classic black and white shows are still the best but the later periods are good too and it's interesting to see how the show lasted through all the ups and downs of life (and TV).
And hey, you do a show that lasts fifty years and tell me how many discs you think you deserve!

Complete episodes
K. Parent | Daejeon | 08/10/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Some reviewers are complaining about getting complete episodes instead of just the good bits, but I'm glad they released them this way. Releasing just the best parts certainly wouldn't fit 10 discs.

The anniversary specials do duplicate parts of other episodes, but they are an extra feature, not the main selling point.

A better ballance between classic episodes and modern ones (i.e., more classics) would have been appreciated though. But overall it's a good set and worth the buy."
Don't Be Fooled By Number of Discs!
Notelexxsenob | 07/22/2008
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Don't be fooled by the number of discs provided in this collection. It seems on the surface you are in for hours and hours of entertainment. However, once you discover the "dirty little secret" you realize you've been had. That "secret" is that throughout the DVDs in this set you will view the exact same footage of the same stunts/gags over and over again. Some stunts are repeated four, even five times over the course of viewing. Many of your favorite segments from the best era of Candid Camera, the 1960's, are included however there are many more that are not in this set. Trust me; you will be very disappointed with the overall content in this collection. It is not worth the cost."
