Bethintx1: What did Vickie (Mama) say at 4:21? I can hear. "Are you sure that little
asshole______???" I could not hear the last word.
Filippo Salustri: Used to be it took hard work to do good comedy.
I dare you to keep a straight face.
Sean Heffernan: *I was at this freak show once*
The Vicki Lawrence line at the end just puts me over the edge.
Kelly Hauenstein: One of the best outtakes I've ever seen. Still don't know how he does that
with a straight face.
Billy Mcmullen: Still one of my favorites shows of all time..I miss comedy like this.
You can add politically incorrect and racially charged shows like Sanford &
Son, Archie Bunkers Place, and The Jeffersons.....
Janessa Hall: Picture quality isn't great, but this is one of my most favorite bits from
the Carol Burnett show: Tim Conway and the Siamese elephants. If you've
never seen this, you should take a moment and watch it. If you have seen
it, you should watch it again.
vlasktom: Who is the guy on stage left? That'd be audience right by the way.
Jerry: What does Vicky say at the end? Something about assholes?
J. Mier: lol Too funny!
NialasDubh: Why have I never seen this before? One of the funniest things I've ever
Juanita Harris: Comedy that stands 'til this day. Tears. Every. Single. Time.
Susan Cagle: Best comedy ever.
Lellobeetle: Wish it was Korman too, instead of Van Dyke
Joan Demeo: I hope you get a laugh from this! I did!
Steve Hammond: The Carol Burnett Show was one of the most hilarious shows ever. I always
felt so sorry for Harvey Korman. Try as he might he could never keep a
straight face around Tim Conway. Of course none of the others could either,
Charger Dave: Hard to top what they did. That cast was so funny. How do you top Carol
draped in drapes and saying its something i saw in the window
tabbygail7: Barnacle Boy!!!!!!!!!
kilasandra: I was laughing in the first two seconds ...
english bob: 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 !
ROY KENDALL: watch
Honey Galore: OMFG, I STILL LOVE WATCHING THIS SKETCH.
Tony Cronin: happy birthday Tim Conway
Michael Muldowney: I watched thousands of you tube clips over the last decade. This is still
Albin Kampfer: Watch the interview Vicki did with emmytvlegends.org. She goes into detail
of what happened before, during and after this was recorded.
Forrest Calkins II: Lol man Tim Conway is a funny guy you can never keep from laughing
Kenneth Barr: You'll never think about elephants the same way again.
anmoose: This was TV at its absolute best.
Noel Houtteman: I envied this cast, they were totally inspirational to me, laughed so hard
every Saturday evening. Schtick like this can never be emulated, not by
anyone. Still tear eyed laughs for me.
Frank Cabanski: Carol later turned this back around on Tim in a park sketch.
orangeandannieftw: And Vicki at the end. Birlliant. Just Brilliant <3
Thomas Fulmer: How can Conway keep a straight face?
Brooke Kavanaugh: Now if you even said the word dwarf you'd have all kinds of groups after
you. Glad I grew up in the days of this awesome comedy.
Phil Moscowitz: At 0:57 Tim gets three birds with one stone.
mack bolan: i have seen this clip a thousand times and still just as funny
Multan Lava: Tim Conway is a rare comic genius. If there was a Mount Rushmore for
comedians, his head would be there for sure.
AGood Son: LOVE ME SOME CAROL BURNETT AND GANG
Carol Burnett Show outtakes - Tim Conway's Elephant Story
BartitsuSociety: I think that is possibly the funniest thing that has ever happened.
diane baum: from what I understood Carol Burnett to say years later...this was so
totally ad-libbed!!! you can tell!!
John Loughry: This is comedy in its purest form!
Anne Thompson: Hang in there till the end
Chuck Sears: I don't care how many hundreds of times I have seen this, it's still just
about the funniest thing I have ever seen. Conway's timing is just
MiserysFence: I don't see how the rest of the cast EVER kept it together. I would have
literally ruptured some internal organs from laughing so hard! This was
REAL TV, and the crap that's on TV nowadays looks even worse in comparison.
Alexandra Scott: LOL...Gawd, I remember this!!
Megan Joelyn: best blooper in history!
cottonclarksa: Sure, Tim Conway "destroys" is cast-mates in this, but Vicky Lawrence wins
the day at the end with he own ad-lib. In a separate interview with Vicky,
she was asked about this skit. (In fact, she gets asked about it a lot!)
At this point in her tenure, she was still something of a rookie on the
show so she towed the line and did as she was told. Carol always demanded
that everyone stay in character, but just before the skit took place one of
the producers told Vicky that Tim was planning some ad-lib stuff so she
should just go with it. Well, you can see that both Carol and pickle Van
Dyle had a hard time "staying in character," yet Vicky being the rookie did
the best to hide her giggles. Finally, at the end she offered a
best-ever-in-character ad lib line as "Mama" with the acerbic, "Are you
sure that little a$$hole is through?" She just blew 'em up with that
Earl Powell: why there should be more live tv
Michael Wilson: always the highlight of this show.. watching the actors try to keep a
straight face when Conway was ad libbing!!
Chrissy Swauger: Makes me think of my Mother and my Childhood I'm crying but from good
Memories thanks for sharing :)
William R Warren Jr: SNAG THIS WHILE YOU CAN WITH YOUTUBE DOWNLOADER!! Every time the studio
catches wind that this treasure is online again, they SHUT IT DOWN! Tim
Conway's funniest ad-lib bit ever ... TWO TAKES!! (YouTube Downloader comes
in a freeware version, and it's simple and it works ... don't just watch
this, add it to your library!)
