American comedienne and actress Carol Burnett (right) is shocked by American actor Leonard Nimoy, in costume as the well-known character Mr. Spock from the 'Star Trek' series', during a skit on 'The Carol Burnett Show,' November 18, 1967.

The Carol Burnett Show was a sketch comedy series. It would normally begin with Carol Burnett coming out on stage to answer questions from the audience. Then the cast would perform several comedy routines. At the end of the show, Carol would sing her farewell song and maybe even have enough time for a few more questions or her beloved, "Tarzan" impersonation!

Carol Burnett is perhaps best remembered however, entering the show by tugging on her ear, which was a way to say "hello" to her grandmother, who raised her.

The show was taped twice each week and the best of both were edited together.
Over the years certain basic aspects of the show remained the same. There was one point in each telecast, usually at the beginning, when Carol and the evening's guest star would answer questions from the studio audience. There were comedy sketches that spoofed TV series, popular movies, or other forms of mass entertainment.

This episode: Highlights include: guests Jonathan Winters and Barbara Eden join Carol for the opening question-and-answer segment; a "V.I.P." interview segment with Jonathan as Santa Claus; Carol and Vicki in a sketch about a surprise party; guest Leonard Nimoy in a sketch about "Mrs. Invisible Man"; Carol as the Charwoman in a playground sketch, and singing "I Believed It All". Written by W.B.
