1. Good thing Korman wasn't in that sketch

Conway could crack him up with an expression. That schtick would have put him in intensive care.

3. OH! THANK YOU Marble Falls!!!

I've been doing taxes all day. I so needed that laugh. But what does Mama say at the very end. I have never been able to hear it. Everyone is laughing so hard.

How about the dentist sketch with Tim and Harvey?

Carol, Tim, Harvey - the very best ever.

29. See my post No. 28 below about the dentist sketch.

I refer to the movie They Went That-a-Way and That-a-Way. I think the dentist bit as it appears in the movie was more hysterical than it was when presented as a sketch on the Carol Burnett Show. In the movie, Tim was an inmate in a prison labor camp ( la Cool Hand Luke) and Dub Taylor was warden in the mold of Strother Martin. Tim was mistakenly thought to be a dentist and was assigned to go to work on the warden's tooth.

Another side-splitting scene in They Went That-a-Way and That-a-Way is when Tim, being on the run from the prison labor camp, is mistaken to be an American-Japanese language interpreter. His attempt to serve as the intermediary between an American official and a visiting Japanese dignitary is off the charts.

11. "You sure that little asshole's through?" Best line in the skit, destroys the cast.

Audience goes nuts.

Would probably be derided as "librul" today.

9. I saw the original

and have that skit, plus the one with him as a dentist and Korman as the patient. Never get tired of watching both of them plus many others on youtube.

10. I saw the original too.

We were all laughing so hard I though one or two of us would have a heart attack. Tim Conway and Harvey Corman were two of the funniest people ever on tv. Nothing like them now.

13. My favorite, too. I also like the butcher shop with Harvey Korman and the

Tim Conway hot dog stand (can't remember anything other than Harvey: "what's a hot dog without a bun?" Tim: "a lonely weenie!"

The GWTW sketch is hysterical, too. "I saw it in the window and I just couldn't resist!"

19. OMG, that brought back great memories!

I remember watching that episode live with my family. We were in tears from the laughter. That show is still one of my favorites in the comedic genre.

Thank you!

23. I must diasagree

This is great, don't get me wrong, but the skit where Korman and Conway are in the bathtub talking fishing...When Conway says he barely missed a shark attack because he was 'wearing his lucky ham'...that, my friends, is comedy!

An equal contender from Late Night with Johnny Carson where they ask Ed Ames who played native American Hawkeye on Daniel Boone show to throw a tomahawk and it hits the male target in the crotch!

28. My favorite was Tim as the dentist who accidentally stuck himself with the novocaine needle.

Last edited Tue Apr 15, 2014, 05:31 AM - Edit history (1)

The bit was more amusing in the movie They Went That-a-way and That-a-Way than when it was done on the Carol Burnett Show.

I once saw an interview of Carol in which she said that Tim was always coming up with unexpected gags to try to get the other cast members to crack up. Once, when portraying a doctor, he put a bit of rubber cement on the tip of his nose. The cast members were unaware that he had done so. When it came to point where he closely examined an x-ray film, the film stuck to his nose where he allowed it to remain clinging.
