Saaawww-reeeee

I love Carol Burnett. This clip is one of the funniest things ever. This was me and my sister's favorite things when we were kids. Saturday nights it was Hee Haw, Mary Tyler Moore, Bob Newhart and this at 9.

Somebody has obviously learned how to post YouTube videos to their blog.

That would make one of us...

Jealous again,

Somebody didn't have nothing else in mind to blog and it's all Newscoma's fault I've learned how to put them up.

It's really not brain surgery. It's very easy or I wouldn't have figured it out. They pretty much do it for you.

Why thank you, Miss Sista.
I adore Carol Burnett. I love it when her, Tim Conway and Harvey Korman would get tickled in their skits.
It was actually quite revolutionary in its time, don't you think.

My favorite Harvey/Tim getting tickled one was when Tim was the dentist and he accidentally shot the novocaine in his hand.

And Gunsmoke at 9:00. I miss these shows and these times. Life seemed so much simplier and the shows so much better.

Dang, I sound like my parents!

It reminds of one of my coolest growing up in Nashville moments with Carol Burnett and Dolly Parton doing a TV Show taping at the Opry House. We got tickets special, because my mom is a huge Carol Burnett fan and it took forever to finish the show with all the outtakes, redos and more.
Carol did the talking to the audience thing between takes just like on her show and my sister and I got her's and Dolly's autograph before the night was over. This was a close second to my Bozo autograph at that age.

Both ladies were so nice, I need to find that TV special somewhere and get a copy of it.

How neat is that? I remember that special. What I remember is the opening had silouettes of Dolly and Carol and me noticing how Carol was pretty much flat chested.

I would ROLL in the floor watching that show when I was a kid. Loved that you posted it! Thanks...

The beauty of the Mama sketches on Carol Burnett was how they were outrageously funny and also sad and poignant.

Thanks for the clip.

I was posting YouTube videos on my site for a while but it started to mess up my layout when I posted too many.
