    “Mizzes Suhwiggins” (in Mr. Tudball accent), I think!

    Love anyone that worked with Carol Burnett. Carson is still the all-time great for that old times classic comedy IMO. Gotta put Red Skelton up there too. Sad news about Tim, but even now he's still making me smile.

    The article didn't specify, but did say he had been suffering from dementia for some time.

    I grew up watching the Carol Burnett Show in its later years and then re-runs. They all were such comic legends. Didn't get better than when someone, usually Conway, broke Korman and he couldn't stop from laughing mid-skit.

    EDIT: Go to the 6:10ish mark of 'The Dentist' video and keep watching to see for yourself.

    Korman was the king of breaking character. The only modern-day rival might be Jimmy Fallon on "SNL."

    One thing that made watching Carol Burnett so much fun was because they were having so much fun doing it and it just rubbed off onto the audience.

    Conway said Korman pee'd his pants, during the dentist sketch he laughed so hard.
    I guess then never really rehearsed those things, so Korman had no idea what to expect[/QUOTE]

    They rehearsed for every show. It's just that Conway was notorious for going off script just to see if he could get the other cast members to crack.

    The video that was originally attached to this post is **** Van Dyke. He was a regular guest on the show. Korman was a cast member and was usually the victim of Conway's antics.

    Dang it, people, fix the broken quote! I can't tell what video you're talking about and where the D Van Dyke talk is coming from!

    Van Dyke was at the other end of the couch for the Elephant Story.
