“You probably didn’t ask, but I’ll tell you anyway,” White teased on “ET” earlier this week. “What am I doing for my birthday? Running a mile each morning has been curtailed by COVID, so I am working on getting ‘The Pet Set’ re-released and feeding the two ducks who come to visit me every day.”

White hosted “The Pet Set” in the 1970s. The show was the perfect venue to showcase White’s love of animals, and she was joined each episode by Carol Burnett, Mary Tyler Moore, Doris Day, James Stewart, Burt Reynolds or one of her other celebrity friends.

When White was in Atlanta in 2012, she not only fed the pandas at Zoo Atlanta, but she also swam with a beluga whale at the Georgia Aquarium.

The DVD will include “a look behind the scenes of the series, original promotional spots, the featurettes ‘Betty White: Game Show Goddess’ and ‘Betty White: Queen of Television,’ Betty’s Photo Album and her public service ads,” the news release stated.
