I was thrilled to see the "Heeere's Johnny" DVD collection released on Amazon.com. I was able to pre-order the set for $69.99 and I received it just one day after the official release date. My wife and I have been slowly working our way through the collection, one DVD at a time. Johnny is an icon and legend of late night television. This collection does a great job of spanning much of Johnny's years of being the Tonight Show host. However, the picture and sound quality is sometime quite bad. The overall picture quality is average at best. I would have thought that the old video would have gone through some sort of restoration process. Obviously this isn't the case in this collection. There are some scenes that flicker and have lines running through them, and the sound sometimes becomes garbled. Another dissapointment is that this collection has no specific order. There is no way to easily work your way from oldest to newest, or in any other manner. This collection is actually made up of several other collections. One of the included collections is made entirely of stand-up commedian guests that appeared on The Tonight Show. I bought this to watch Johnny, not to see a young Jerry Seinfeld, or the early (and yet still irritating) years of Rosanne Baar.
Overall this is an excellent collection of Johnny Carson's golden years in television. I just wish it was better organized, had more clips of Johnny himself, and wish the video and audio had gone through some sort of restoration process. For the money this is definately a good buy, if you are a die hard Carson fan. =o)
