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).

The Greatest Sketch Comedy Ever
3 October 2003 | by SargebriSee all my reviews

This was definitely the finest variety show of the 1970's. The thing that made it great besides the cast were the various recurring sketches that were very expertly created. Sketches like Tudball and Wiggins, the Old Folks, As the Stomach Turns, the kid sister and, of course, Eunice, which was the inspiration for the series "Mama's Family", helped to make this variety hour a classic. Besides "Mama and Eunice" any one of these shows could have become a series on its own. The only thing that caused the show to go downhill though was when Harvey Korman left. He was probably the best player among the supporting cast and when he left the show declined from there. Still, Saturday nights for me would always climax with this classic show.
