To coincide with the current Favorite Lucy Show thread going on, I thought about another classic TV show - The Carol Burnett Show - the last great prime-time variety show.
So, what was your all-time favorite skit/skits from this classic show?
Mine are the obvious ones:
Tim Conway/Harvey Korman as the Apprentice Dentist and His Patient,
Tim Conway as an old man falling down the stairs in slow motion, and
Carol Burnett in their take-off of Gone With The Wind wearing that curtain rod/drapes costume.
So, what is/are your favorites from this show?
DAMN! This SUCKS! I just had to go to the next higher age bracket in my profile! :-(

I read somewhere that polling showed "Went with the Wind" is the most popular and memorable of the sketches they did to spoof classic movies. I loved all of the movie spoofs - she even did a spoof of "Airport 75" wherein Carol played the Karen Black stewardess role. However, I think "Mildred Fierce" with Carol in those high heel shows running her "Mildred's Fatburger" restaurants is priceless.
Oh how I long for the day when the skies were truly Friendly!
