A fond memory for many, The Carol Burnett Show, which ran from 1967 until 1978, was one of television’s most successful variety shows of all time. Key to its success were the wonderfully written comedy sketches featuring a whole host of characters, including some which parodied well-known movies or TV shows. Enjoy your favorite characters.
