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.
Wray Post: *"... you hear that little as ... ho... too?"*
Don't watch this. It could be hazardous to your health, especially if you
are prone to laughter.
Sean Heffernan: *I was at this freak show once*
The Vicki Lawrence line at the end just puts me over the edge.
Filippo Salustri: Used to be it took hard work to do good comedy.
I dare you to keep a straight face.
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.
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.....
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.
h/t +Nick Scholl & +Maria Quiban
Prof. Grey: So I'm poking around on youtube
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
Kelly Hauenstein: One of the best outtakes I've ever seen. Still don't know how he does that
with a straight face.
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 !
Lellobeetle: Wish it was Korman too, instead of Van Dyke
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 4:00
minute 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
vlasktom: Who is the guy on stage left? That'd be audience right by the way.
NialasDubh: Why have I never seen this before? One of the funniest things I've ever
Steve Flanigan: Well, it looks as if 351 people, (at the time of this posting) have
absolutely NO sense of humor!
Jerry: What does Vicky say at the end? Something about assholes?
Juanita Harris: Comedy that stands 'til this day. Tears. Every. Single. Time.
pac401: Poor pickle Van Dyke was ready to explode long before he did. Viki's line at
the end put him over the edge.
alg11297: I'm sorry...I've never seen this before. What exactly are they laughing at?
Didn't any of them read the script written for them before they started the
cameras rolling? Didn't you ever wonder why Carol Burnett never did
anything after the show went off the air?
Rita Doyle: I had just prior to this video watched the "Vickie Lawrence on an infamous
blooper on "the Carol Bernett Show" by TVLedgends (4:23) where she tells
the back story to this scene.... makes it all the more humorous! Tim
Conway had to have had quite the imagination for the ability to make stuff
up like this so funny!
lkgrave: Tim Conway's timing and delivery are what truly makes the elephant story so
damn memorable. Another person could tell it and it wouldn't even be as
close as funny.
Weathergoat: If heaven's like this then I hope I end up there.
Russell Miller: Think I posted this a long time ago but I will again. It never fails to
crack me up.
Rebecca Harrison: This was one of my favorite shows growing up. Tim Conway always knew how to
break up a scene (with laughter)
miri dunn: I have tears rolling down my face!
If you don't know, Tim Conway always cracked the others up, making ti hard
to get through a skit. This is hysterical!
thanks +Mark Rider for reminding me
Joel Comm: Did you watch the Carol Burnett Show when you were younger? I enjoyed it
every week and especially liked Tim Conway. This is a great clip. Stay with
it to the end as Vicki Lawrence gets the ultimate punch line! Carol Burnett

seen these days!
janeyrevanescence12: "I saw these Siamese elephants..."
Carol: (thinking) Tim, I am going to KILL you when we're done.
dlwatib: Watch pickle Van Dyke. It looks like he's just about to pee his pants he's
trying so hard to hold in the laughter.
Susan Cagle: Best comedy ever.
rubyroo999: The only thing that could possibly have made this better would be to see
Harvey Korman rolling on the floor in hysterics. Harvey had quit the show
before that season.
Tara Murray: SNORKY
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,
J. Mier: lol Too funny!
tabbygail7: Barnacle Boy!!!!!!!!!
kilasandra: I was laughing in the first two seconds ...
