What if the Hokey Pokey IS what it's all about?
The Carol Burnett Show
The Carol Burnett Show was one of my all time favorite shows! I looked forward to it weekly! Does anyone know if they are re-airing episodes or if they have any series DVD's out?
Some of my favorites:
The Gone With the Wind skit with Carol playing Scarlett and wearing the curtains WITH the curtain rod!
Any Tim Conway "old man" skit
I remember this one skit where Carol played an old woman on a park bench and she had one eyebrow straight across her forehead, and she said, "I used to have 2 eyebrows but I plucked the top!"
Sometimes I was more amused by the actors trying to hold in their laughter more than the skit itself!
In my heart, I'm actually Canadian....
I love the now oft copied skit with Conway, and,... sorry, his name escapes me. Harvey something? Anyway, it was a dentist skit, where Conway froze his leg. It was great. I also agree about the Scarlett scene.
Nick at Nite or TV Land recently did a weekend 24/7 run of the Carol Burnett show. I haven't laughed that hard in a long time. If you have cable or satellite, check out those stations for reruns.
They showed the great "Scarlet" routine and then several other episodes that had movie themes. I had never seen the parody of The Exorcist before and it was hysterical.
