Movie Reviews

Great Snapshot of Tonight Show History
Lemon | 06/08/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"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."

"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."
A handful of the most memorable classic television moments
Sammy | Norfolk, VA | 06/09/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"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."

"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."
