Posted on

You might want to turn your volume down a bit before watching this one!

In honor of the release of The Carol Burnett Show: The Lost Episodes, which went on sale Sept. 15, Carol Burnett and Time Life held a contest to see who could do the best Tarzan yell. Burnett’s own Tarzan yell became a signature part of her show, as audience members would often request it from her during her question-and-answer segment. Years later, it is still a beloved part of the comedian’s legacy.

In the exclusive video above, the legendary comedian announces the five winners of the competition, each of whom will receive signed copies of The Carol Burnett Show: The Lost Episodes Ultimate Collection.

The new DVD set contains 16 episodes from the first five seasons of The Carol Burnett Show, which haven’t been seen by the public since they first aired over 40 years ago from 1967–1972. The collection also includes never-before-seen bloopers, a backstage tour of the studio, and exclusive interviews with Julie Andrews, Bill Hader, Alan Alda, and more.
