Carol Burnett Show Tidbits

Carol Burnett can do it all. She sings and dances, she does comedy and drama. She endures.

The long running Carol Burnett show had some standard bits. Carol and the guest star would come out first and answer audience questions.

Then there would be the marvelous sketches. Who can forget Carol Burnett and Harvey Korman sitting on the porch in their rocking chairs wondering what went wrong in life. Or Carol and Harvey bickering with and about their daughter played by Carol Lawrence.

They made fun of TV and movies. My favorite sketch was the "Gone With the Wind" spoof where Carol comes downstairs with a drapery rod across her shoulders and drapes hanging from them. Another popular one was "As the Stomach Turns," a parody of a soap opera.

Burnett got noticed on the Garry Moore Show (1959) where she also met her husband, producer, Joe Hamilton. (They divorced in 1982.)

When Harvey Korman left the show in 1977 it was thought that Dick Van Dyke might fill a void, but they chemistry was lacking and he left very quickly.

Carol Burnett is perhaps best remembered however, ending the show by tugging on her ear.
