Carol Burnett Day!

I don't know where that title came from... I guess I thought of this post while I was filling my mop bucket.. Yes.. I do have the one with the big wheels!  lol
 I just love Carol Burnett! It all started with the Cleaning Lady. I need a cleaning lady. I miss the show so much. I will let you in on a secret. I do not watch reality TV. I hate it.. It is not reality !


 Carol the old silent movie actress was the first " Housewives of Orange County.  She looks like them!  East Coast or West Coast it doesn't matter.. You don't go bowling with heels on and drink Champagne.. It least they got the hair and makeup right!  See above....

 Carol was also one of the first designers for the show, " Project Runway." She made do with what she had.. It was so much more fun to watch. No one was there to grade her and make nasty comments. Rhett ( Harvey) loved her outfit, so much he had a hard time to keep from bursting out laughing at her!  See, better entertainment all around!

 Next picture reminds me of the show with Jessica Simpson, " Newlyweds with Nick and Jessica. Ms. Wiggins is Jessica, dumb as a stump... Is that Chicken of the Sea, Chicken or Tuna? OMG!!! Need I say anymore.....

 This is my favorite character, Eunice.  Why, because Eunice is REAL.. Everyone has a Eunice in their family or knows a Eunice!  I will say I know a Eunice, that way my family will not be wondering who our Eunice is?  lol

I just had to put this picture in here!  Tim Conway!  I love him as the little old man. That wig needs to be put in the Carol Burnett Museum. Looking through the pictures to use in this post.. That wig was used in some many skits.. It looks like it is the same wig. It just kept getting more ratty with every skit! lol
I miss my old TV shows.. I am sorry, I can't make myself watch reality shows.. It made me mad when I used to watch the Idol.. At the end of the show, in that Little bitty writing.. It says, : This show is for Entertainment Purposes Only.. That means you can call all you want to.. But that vote does not count in the END. They ( Big Money Producers) are not going to sink millions on promoting a person who won by popular vote by a bunch of 9 to 18 year old.. If you notice.. Ryan says " We had so many millions of votes." But do they say how many votes each person got.  NOPE!  They ( money people) pick.. I will get back to my moping now...
I miss The Carol Burnett Show!

Oh Carol Burnett is a classic - funny funny lady. TV is a wasteland now days. I've found I could live without TV as long as I have the Internet. Thank goodness for blots!

Carol Burnett's show was my all time fav and I don't think I've laughed as much since it left the air.

Thank you for the great post. Did you ever watch her on Mama's family? That was one of my favorite shows, and they never show it anymore.

Oh my lord!! I grew up watching Carol and NOTHIN' came close to the hilarity of her show! True, pure comedy. I still quote some of her skits, especially Mrs. Sa-wiggins, Mrs. Sa-Wiggins! She is the Quentin of Comedy to me. Love your post, thanks for the memories.
