magister ludi: tim's character was mickey- a retard who could not hear ..classic but
probably couldn't be on tv today..just like red foxx and his cast used to
say nigger all the time on sanford and son !
Shane Spencer: There has never been anything in the history of Television more hilarious,
than when the cast of *The Carol Burnett* show would try desperately to
hold back their own laughter.
Of course, the audience would be laughing hysterically, and would create a
domino effect of ensuing laughter.

littlebit080780: Ok someone clear this up PLEASE. I've been looking around to see if I
could find this sketch in it's entiry. BUT someone, very rudly, told me
this is NOT from ANY sketch it's merely an outtake and there's no more to
it. I keep trying to tell this person this outtake is indeed from a
sketch, and it's not like the actors just came out on stage to do this 4:00minute elephant story. Maybe this person is misunderstanding me or I'm
misunderstanding him, but could someone please confirm this out take is
indeed from an actual sketch? I remember seeing this sketch when I was
Prof. Grey: So I'm poking around on youtube
CA Madura: OMG!!!!.... Love-a
John Loughry: This is comedy in its purest form!
BartitsuSociety: I think that is possibly the funniest thing that has ever happened.
z0ZzZ0z: It is called "Breaking". It happened all the time on this show and made up
for bad writing. It is lame and was usually totally contrived.
Kitty Litter: One of the best , if not the best ever , nothing compares to it today ,
most of it is junk !!
William Cason: I grew up watching this on t.v. and man I do miss this kind of quality
comedy! Totally funny and not dirty.
Nikki Kerester: 304 people have no sense of humor
Carlos Hawkins: go tim ,go tim,go tim lol
demcdoug: Longer version ...absolutely hilarious.
Chris Chapman: In need of a laugh today? Well here ya go. Your welcome.
FilmNoir Fan: Every time Tim told the elephant story, he said something different each
time so the rest of the cast didn't know what he would say next. That's why
they couldn't keep their composure.
RoseWood1488: This is like Beethoven's Fifth Symphony.
Lawrence Crowley: Hard to believe that they *STILL* haven't released "The Carol Burnett Show"
on DVD (Just "Best Of" Dvds). Come on, guys, there's a huge potential
market for this!
William Campbell: Thnork!
Pamela Rother Salbva: For you elephants
lkgrave: 4:22: Mr. Conway, you just got punked.
causing ascene: How the HELL did Carol Burnett actually manage to drink something during
that skit ?? LOLOL
Jeremy Walker: This has to be one of the funniest things ever
BettyBamBam125: They r so trying not to laugh but it is so funny
Lisa Golden: Even 50 seconds into this, Tim Conway himself looks like he's going to
break character. Always a favorite to watch.
TamBam smith: At least they have a sense of humor about themselves I like that they don't
fake it when it's funny it's funny
Yossarian Bowens: Anytime I'm having a bad day I will watch this.
Emily Short: I love how they cant keep it together.
Aaron Jackson: The absolute height of TV comedy.
Kayasi K.P.: I love how there all hiding their faces
kecia daniels: To funny.. I can't stop laughing..
kirk gauthier: This is just simply great. I laughed so hard when I watched Carol and Co. I
don't laugh like that when I watch TV today.
Soul Dancer: an 'oldie but a goodie' (warning - this is the uncensored version of this
And a follow-up! Vicki Lawrence on an infamous blooper on "The Carol
Burnett Show" - EMMYTVLEGENDS
Melissa Goodall: Best show ever!
dhagen02: The Origin of ROFLMAO!!!!!!! Right there!
SchoonerCam: The description misses half of the glory of this scene. Tim Conway is
doing what he always does, and it's great, of course. The great thing
about this "outtake" is we see Vicki Lawrence (Mama) break script for the
first time in an attempt to crack Tim Conway up, and since everyone (the
cast and the viewers) had been waiting years for this...it was explosively
shaveyh10: Some of the funniest television of all time and the entire family could
DAVID silva: COMEDY LEGENDZZ N GENIUSES all .
njide chukwumezie: I used to watch the Carol Burnett and Mama's Family. I remember the times
when the cast would say something funny and they would all try hard not to
laugh. This is real humor. They don't make 'em like this anymore.
Mark A Cherpak: Our television has become so ridiculous that I watch clips like these to
laugh and enjoy it. Our tv compared to overseas- they don't believe in
censorship like here- I barely watch tv anymore since a network cancelled
'COPS' and 'America's Most Wanted', however, these networks will leave on
real tv which is not- paid actors and actresses!
TheCook333: okay children of baby boomers............this is the best comedy. now, go
on your play dates.
bssnplayer: Is that little asshole done yet?
ketslboo: How he does it with a straight face I have no idea. He's too funny!
christine horacsek: it's hard to keep a straight face while watching it
christine horacsek: hey look it's pickle van pickle laughing/falling of the couch
SirReptitious: American TV has gotten so bad there are only 3 series I watch. Fortunately
a few years ago I discovered internet sites that stream subtitled series
free from Japan and Korea. There are comedies and dramas, and watching them
is such a breath of fresh air, since American tv has pretty much been crap
for the last decade.
SirReptitious: I liked the Carol Burnett show, but the show that I thought was the
funniest ever was SOAP on ABC. But now I have to say it's the funniest
American show, because I found one that is even better. A British show from
about 10yrs ago called Coupling. It is hands-down the funniest TV show ever
made. I have lost count how many times I have watched it, but it still
makes me laugh out loud. It's on DVD and BBC America channel(I think it
still is). Watch it, you won't regret it!!!
xzarmonty4: This is my go-to video whenever my day has been lousy since I discovered it
years ago, and it pleases me greatly that people still come and respond to
324tjn: I had seen a show on PBS called Pioneers of Television on the ladies of
comedy. Carol Burnett was on there. Tim was too. It was brought up he would
make notes in the script on what he could do to crack up his cast mates and
