August 29: Carol Burnett Show – Star Trek Parody

This is from the short lived 1991 comeback after the original series ended, and if you missed it then, you’ve got good reason to be surprised that you didn’t see it. The clip circulated around Facebook for a bit, which is how I found it.

If you haven’t seen this yet, time to swallow the drink, sit back, and enjoy scenery-chewing where no scenery-chewing has gone before. Or since.

August 26: “Charo” on the Carol Burnett Show and Charo on the Jerry Lewis Telethon

I wish this was the original skit. Unfortunately it’s gone, though not with the wind. Ahem.

In its place, here’s a clip of Carol Burnett AS Charo.

Followed by Charo herself, doing the other thing for which she is famous.

I remember seeing the original when it first aired (Sep 22, 1973 on CBS). Tim Conway and Lyle Waggoner costar with Carol in that skit. If it ever returns, I’ll fix the link.

If you haven’t seen these, or it’s been a while, swallow the drink.

August 25: Carol Burnett Show ~ Norma Desmond: The Eulogy

Well, dang.

Carol Burnett has an official YouTube channel, and a lot of the older clips I highlighted are gone. “Simba” is one of them. First airing November 23, 1974, in the eighth season, this spoof of the movie Born Free is representative of the lengths Tim Conway had to go (not far, really) to crack up his co-stars.

You’ll have to live with Norma Desmond instead. I think you’ll survive, if you don’t crack a rib laughing.
