Other great guest shots come from Carl Reiner, Steve Martin, Shirley MacLaine and George Carlin, and extras include a cast reunion with Burnett, Conway, Lawrence and Lyle Waggoner, a rare interview with Conway and the late Korman, and a vintage episode of “The Garry Moore Show,” featuring a young Burnett in the classic “Supergirl” sketch — the first time she did her famous Tarzan yell on television.

The multi-talented Burnett (arguably the funniest redhead of TV's first two decades) was the glue that held the show together, but it lasted well beyond the golden age of variety shows thanks to a top-flight team of writers and an incredibly well-matched cast of supporting players. As Burnett's theme song says, you'll be “glad we had this time together” again with some old TV friends.
