I can’t think of a better way to start the New Year thanTimeLife_Holiday_Graphic with a bunch of free stuff. Our friends over at Time Life have put together a package with some classic shows that will make you ring in 2016 with a smile. So how would you like some great shows under your tree this year?


There will be one (1) winner chosen at random for this amazing prize pack. There is no second place.

The prize package includes:

  • The Hee-Haw Collection
  • The Carol Burnett Show: The Lost Episodes
  • Mr. Warmth! Don Rickles: The Ultimate T.V. Collection


Each of these collections would be a prize on their own but the winner gets all 3.


This prize pack from Time-Life will give you hours of laughs. Check  out the details for everything in this prize pack.


The Hee-Haw Collection:

Hee-Haw was the longest running comedy/variety show on television. Roy Clark and Buck Owens hosted the countrified ensemble show, pickin’ and grinnin’ and singin’ and spinnin’ with a talented cast of characters. Minnie Pearl, Grandpa Jones, Archie Campbell, and the rest of the Hee Haw gang traded knee-slappers and gut-busting one-liners in hilarious sketches including “Doc Campbell,” “PFFT! You Were Gone” and “Gordie’s General Store”—as well as the all-time favorites “Rindercella” and “Trigonometry.”


And because Hee Haw was a favorite stop for country’s greatest stars, the collection features over 100 classic performances by country stars at the peaks of their careers, like Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton, Kenny Rogers, George Jones, Waylon Jennings, Hank Williams Jr. and so many more!



The complete set includes 2 Bonus DVDs. Hee Haw Laffs includes enduring sketches and countess comic moments from the early years, plus the series premiere with Loretta Lynn and Charley Pride as it aired in 1969. You’ll also enjoy exclusive bonus interviews with original cast members including Roy Clark and Lulu Roman!


The Carol Burnett Show: The Lost Episodes includes episodes that haven’t been seen on television since they first aired. For the first time on DVD, you can now own the best episodes from the groundbreaking years of Carol’s beloved variety show. You’ll see the first episode aired, the first performances of many of her famous characters, legendary guest stars, and show-stopping musical performances.



The Lost Episodes features 21 uncut episodes plus over 11 hours of bonus material on 10 DVDs. Exclusive bonus features include:


  • A Backstage Tour of Studio 33 where the show was filmed


  • Exclusive interviews with Alan Alda, Julie Andrews, Tony Bennett, Steve Carell, Tina Fey, and many more
