Trivia

In the beginning Vicki Lawrence would mostly do the Carol and Sis sketches and a few musical numbers because of her inexperience. When she felt that she was ready, she finally asked her mentor Carol Burnett if she could do other things, and she started branching out into other sketches. See more »

Quotes

as Thelma "Mama" Harper: [Vicki improvises a line that was not scripted] You ain't right in the head, Eunice. I think somebody blew your pilot light out!
as Eunice Harper: [Carol is caught off guard and quickly turns away trying to compose herself and not fall out of character] That's a *new* one, Mama!
as Thelma "Mama" Harper: [without missing a beat] Well, you just wait, there's more!
as Eunice Harper: [clasping her hands over her face to hide her laughter] Oh, no!
as Thelma "Mama" Harper: You've got splinters in the windmills of your mind!

Crazy Credits

In the closing credits, the charwoman (an animated caricature of Carol Burnett) is seen in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen mopping the floor. As the credits roll she suddenly turns and notices them and for the rest of the sequence she leans on her mop and watches them move from bottom to top (except for a brief pause to scratch her behind).

Made staying at home on Saturday nights respectable
8 May 2005 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

The jewel in the crown on CBS's Saturday night comedies. In one night you saw All in the Family, MASH, Mary Tyler Moore, bob Newhart, and Carol Burnett. There was never that much great comedy on one evening, before or after. Must-see TV years before NBC. Me and my family stayed glued to the set from 8 to 11. A great cast and consistently funny; I found out later that several Mad magazine writers were on the staff. I did get tired of Harvey Korman breaking up very week... but opposite Tim Conway, who could resist? I remember a sketch where Harvey was in a dentist chair; Tim was the dentist. All was going well... until Tim injected the Novocaine into himself and not his patient. Various parts of his body went numb. I remember him slapping his dangling right hand with his left--the numb hand swung back and forth like a half-filled water balloon. Then the left half of his face went slack. Then the right. The his right leg gave out and he had to sit on the chair with Harvey. I don't think I've ever laughed so hard, and poor Harvey almost slid out of his chair with laughter. A class act, all the way. It's a shame Harvey Korman never went on to comedy stardom, when marginally talented folks like Adam Sandler became millionaires.
