CAROL BURNETT’S FAVORITE SKETCHES | June 2016 | PBS


– [Voiceover] Be more. PBS. – Hi, I’m Carol Burnett. For 11 years, I had the
privilege of having my name on a show that was full of
music and dancing, comedy. Everything I loved. I will do Joan of Arc! And I did it with people I loved. People in front of the camera. – Surprise surprise! – And behind the camera. Who were so talented and so funny and made every show an adventure. Actually, we mounted, in essence, a musical comedy revue every single week. With new guests, new songs, new costumes. Can you imagine? It was so much fun. Rhett, I never realized what a virile strong hunk of man you are. I’m yours. – Not now, Scarlet, I’m pooped. – Now, I am so honored to
be here on public television supporting public
television by showing you some of my very favorite
moments from our show. Oh shut up. These are clips I picked out just for you. And I’ll tell you a little about each one of them as we go along. – Don’t suppose you have any comedy insurance down there, do you? – Please sit back, get comfortable, and let’s spend some time together. On PBS. (audience cheers) What brings you to Tara? – You, you vixen, you. Scarlet, I love you. That gown is gorgeous. – Thank you. I saw it in the window and
I just couldn’t resist it. (audience applauds) – That shape! That form. Why he looks almost like
the Pilsbury Dough Boy! – Did you hear that Max? Millions of people are demanding
my return to the screen. – Yes madam, you will be great. You will run the gamut of emotion. – Yes. – Give me jealousy. – Jealousy. – Love. Anger. Pity. Fear. Mmm. – I haven’t lost it, have I Max? I have every nuance, yes Max. I won’t disappoint my public. I will do a great epic. I will do Joan of Arc! – Oh, well. We were thinking more of
Knock ‘Em Dead Bug spray. – I will demand a million dollars! – Oh, well we only have
$250 tops on this one. We’ve gone over budget. – Max, you will be my director again. – Oh, well, uh, Herbie down at the office has done about 10. – No one will direct Madam but me! – Uh, well, you were our first choice. – We are ready for the
first day’s shooting, Madam. – I’m ready. (yells) – I’ll just give you a
little, little shot here. We’ll be right with you. – Hold your foot still, slave. I’ll chain you two together. – Hi. I’m a leper. – Oh goody. I’ve got another man out. Go on, Momma, it’s your turn. Ooh. Now Momma. Now lookie here Momma. You’ve got two choices here, see. What you can do is use that double and you can move down here and you can land on an opponent, see. And when you land on that opponent, you pick up this little
bell and you ring it and you say sorry! And then that opponent
has to go right back to where he started, see? You pick up the bell and you go sorry! Sorry! Because Momma, there’s
a little yellow fella. Right here that’s just
dying to be landed on. – [Voiceover] Be more. PBS.

    I may be the only person in America who absolutely hated the Eunice sketches. I never saw the humor in chronically selfish people screaming at each other. But I loved just about everything else on that wonderful show..

    When was the curtain pole dress first done? Was it an old idea from Golden Age of Hollywood?

    I was so pleased to see the first item on the compilation was " Scarlet" coming down the steps with the curtain, complete with the curtain pole !
    I only saw this a few days before, and thought it was so funny!

    Loved all the regulars on Carol Burnett's TV show except Tim Conway .. he just seemed too interested in proving how funny he was .. which was seldom ..

    I tried to think of a modern day Comic, Male or Female who could do as good as these Masters of Comedy.Not a single name I could think of.

    I have a lot of tapes of CB's show and whenever I'm sad or in a bad mood, I pull one out and play it and it takes away everything bad! This show was one of the best ever, such great people and such clean, fun comedy, the likes of which are obviously gone forever! Carol is such a great lady, and gave us so much (as all her cast did) and we thank all of them! (Now I'm able to just pull these up on the computer any time I wish and don't even have to get out tapes!) I think Carol is about 85 now, and still looking and sounding great! Long live the queen of comedy! (And that dentist skit, completely HILARIOUS!)

    I have had a recent bout of watching shows that were a tv staple of my youthful days. Carol Burnett's show was one of those. Her show was so entertaining and remains as such today. No foul language (well there was the elephant sketch) and all was good. Innuendo did abound, but all in good fun or so we thought and I still think. It was a time of innocence  for a lot of us and a time of prosperity for a lot of hard working Americans. Wish we had this today.

    Back in the 1970s, when the Carol Burnett programs were like new, I only recorded one sketch on the tape recorder. And NO, I never recorded Eunice. I wanted Zelda, the Spanish episode when, instead of "George!" she's saying "Hor hay!"' didn't Carol like playing Zelda at times?

    They broke the mold with Carol. A total original …and, as we saw for 11 years of her show and after, she is so versatile.

    Carol was so fantastic, there's no denying that, but I adored Harvey Korman as Mother Marcus on As the Stomach Turns.
