The Carol Burnett Show was a one-hour variety/sketch comedy show starring comedian/actor Carol Burnett. It became a hit thanks to skits featuring the host and a cast of regulars, including Tim Conway, Harvey Corman, Vicki Lawrence, and Lyle Waggoner.

The TV series also featured guest stars such as Steve Martin, Jonathan Winters, Lucille Ball, and Dick Van Dyke, along with musical guests like Dionne Warwick and Bing Crosby. In addition, audiences could expect to see Burnett’s signature Tarzan yell and ear tug.

Filmed in front of a live audience, the 25-time Emmy Award-winning show aired Saturday nights on CBS for 11 seasons from 1967 to 1978.
