U.S. DVD release

This is DVD compilation of 18 episodes of the television series which aired, in various forms, from 1953 to 1987. The Carpenters were the featured guests in an episode taped in late 1970, aired on February 14, 1971.

The concept of the show was that celebrities would have people from their past come onto the show and talk about them. Considering Karen and Richard were 20 and 24, respectively, when this aired, it wasn't as if the show could dig people from FAR out of their pasts... They were sort of an odd choice to be featured on this show, but we're very glad they were!

Any Carpenters fan would enjoy seeing this, although with a $50 retail price, it is a bit steep for 30 minutes of Karen and Richard, especially since there are no musical performances on the show.

This is a single-DVD release featuring only the Carpenters and Shirley Jones episodes.
