Hey, wait until she calls on you before you ask a question. She can't see you with the lights down. They'll be bumped up soon

Mr. Tudball and Mrs. Wiggins. Each sketch was a perfect construction, building to an inevitable, yet still surprising, conclusion. The characterizations were so simple and yet so consistent throughout years of situations. And seeing Tim Conway react in that character makes me laugh every time.

That would definitely have to be the "Hollow Hero" sketch; where Carol "The Queen of England" tried to bribe Hollow palace guard Tim Conway...with a popsicle. And he couldn't figure out what flavor he wanted. Comedy gold because the premise grew progressively more insane as the piece went along, to the point where Queen Carol finally had to utter, "My good man, there is no such thing as a moose-flavor-ed popsicle!!"

Tim Conway as Mr. Tudball. He had such faith in Mrs. Ah-Wiggins come what may. And he had the uncanny ability during scenes to make fellow cast mates laugh like audience members.

"No Frills Airline". I had to look it up on youtube. Harvey Korman and Tim Conway on a flight, Korman being constantly bothered is great in this. Carol Burnett was my mums favourite show and I remember this sketch being hilarious and making her laugh until tears come out of her eyes. I'm sure there are funnier sketches, but it's the one that stuck with me, I plan on getting this set for her to watch again if I don't win it ha ha. :)




Mod note: I inserted the video

My favorite character is Eunice from the Mama's Family sketches. I love it when Eunice gets angry and tells off her family. I love Carol's portrayal. I really admire the energy and enthusiasm she brings to the role.
