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).

Great Family Entertainment
11 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Our family watched 'The Carol Burnett Show" together almost every week. As I remember it was the only show on TV that we all watched together. Carol, the cast, the writers and the producers did a great job of creating a show that was funny, creative and entertaining for all age groups. Tim Conway and Harvey Korman were one of the best acts on television. Vickie Lawrence was perfect for the show. Carol is an American television icon....

Thanks for the Memories,

"I'm so glad we had this time together, Just to have a laugh, and sing a song. Seems we just got started and before we knew it, Came the time we had to say, 'So long.'" ..........music and lyrics by Joe Hamilton
