The Best of The Carol Burnett Show


While there’s no truth to the rumor that “CBS” ever stood for The Carol Burnett Show, for over a decade this star-studded extravaganza of sketch comedy, song and dance defined entertainment for TV viewers. Taped before a live audience at Hollywood’s CBS Television City Studio 33, The Carol Burnett Show featured clever, dazzling production numbers in an intimate environment, thanks to strategic camera placement that brought the actors and audience closer together. Burnett operated in a relaxed theater setting that allowed her to take questions, cut loose with her famous Tarzan yell and join second bananas Harvey Korman, Vicki Lawrence and Lyle Waggoner to have a laugh or sing a song.

Season 1
Episode 1

The dynamic young singer and Tony Award-winning actress Melba Moore and comedy legend Carl Reiner bring high energy to the program. Moore performs a soulful version of You've Got a Friend and duets with Carol on Have a Little Talk with Myself. The spoof's the thing in this episode. Carol and Harvey reconnect while waiting to participate in "Let's Make a Bargain." Hospital dramas and soap operas were big at the time, and General Hospital combined the best of both. "Terminal Hospital" is overstocked with loonies, from crazed nurse Melba to misunderstood male nurse Harvey to flawed surgeon Dr. Goldenstein (Carl), who can't cut it anymore. Some blown lines add to the mayhem here as well as in a Non-Violent Theatre segment, The Plot to Hurt Hitler, where German spies Harvey and Carl are part of the gang that couldn't plot straight.
