For 11 years, Carol Burnett and friends entertained us. I really miss the show. My family and I watched in it reruns during my childhood. There were so many unforgettable characters and hilarious parodies that made us laugh so hard it hurt. Original episodes aired from 1967 to 1978. Time magazine lists it as one of the 100 best television shows of all time.
It's hard to say which character is my favourite. To this day, I try to imitate Burnett acting like the Queen of England, or like the loud mouthed Eunice, who's character went on to a successful spin-off show called "Mama's Family".
Perhaps the most amazing aspect of the show was that the genius of one man was responsible for all the costumes for the show. Bob Mackie, a respected fashion designer in his own right, worked tirelessly to design and produce every single costume piece for the weekly Carol Burnett Show.
