I was looking something up about the Carol Burnett Show. Somehow I ended up on youtube and saw a comment about the best TV sketches, putting the elephant story up there with Nile Crane ironing his pants, and Betty White's herring circus.

I have seen Niles iron his pants (and howled during the whole thing), but I hadn't heard of the herring circus before.  If you're curious...



I really enjoy watching the masters go off script, and how their victims handle it. Of course the Carol Burnett Show is one of the very best examples of this, particularly when Tim Conway was in a sketch. And you get to learn how the actors typically move, and detect when they're reacting out of character. Like noticing the way Carol will cover her mouth. The Golden Girls sketch is like that, too. Dorothy and Blanche were definitely not prepared! I wonder how it was originally scripted?
