Carol Burnett DVD
One would be hard pressed to find a more formidable ensemble of comedic talent than the cast of The Carol Burnett Show. For eleven seasons, Carol and her cohorts took sketch comedy to hilarious new heights, thanks in part to each actor’s devious desire to make the others crack up on camera. The tactics usually worked, leaving the cast, and generations of viewers, in stitches. Fondly-remembered sketches included their popular ongoing soap opera spoof, “As the Stomach Turns,” as well as frequent movie parodies, such as the unforgettable “Went With The Wind.” Based on the film, Gone With The Wind, the sketch featured Carol as Scarlett O’Hara, dressed ridiculously in a garment made from a set of window curtains. Another recurring segment called “The Family” would later become the catalyst for a spin-off series in 1983 called Mama’s Family, which starred Vicky Lawrence.
For their efforts, The Carol Burnett Show collected 28 Emmy Awards and eight Golden Globes. After going off the air in 1978, the show would continue on in syndication for many years as Carol Burnett and Friends. It was the last great variety show, one that showcased a cast of characters whose chemistry is unparalleled. But the heart of the show was always Carol, who not only made audiences laugh but connected with them on a more personal level , such as at the beginning of each show by involving them in a question and answer session. And at the finish of each show, she would give her trademark tug of her ear (a message to her grandmother that she loved her) and then end with her trademark song, which seemed to perfectly sum up the feelings of everyone watching.
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 you know it
Comes the time we have to say, ‘So long.’
