I can't find it anywhere. I thought there would be a box-set/anthology/collection thing available. Is there some kind of secret handshake or such?

Will trade casino cash for info.

There's no formal box set, but I ran across this "homemade" set.

Looks like a set of 49 episodes on 12 DVDs for $30.00

"The Gong Show Movie"-

Think "Jerry Springer too hot for TV"- segments too racy to be broadcast.

Hope this helps.

I used to just love that show & i'm sure millions of others did to, hard to believe there isnt an official box set.

Does anyone here think that Chuck Barris was a CIA hitman???...he sure insists he was, in either case, his movie about it "Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind" is very entertaining. It honestly wouldnt surprise me if it were true.

Speaking of classic...

I remember laughing hysterically when this aired, thinking of the phones ringing off the hook at the network. It was one of the acts Barris sent through to get chopped by the censors (so others could make it by), but for some reason it didn't.

According to the movie i mentioned, he was wasted all of the time, especially toward the end of the shows run.
