The Carol Burnett Show was an American variety television show starring Carol Burnett, Harvey Korman, Vicki Lawrence, and Lyle Waggoner. In 1975, frequent guest star Tim Conway became a regular after Waggoner left the series. In 1977, Dick Van Dyke replaced Korman, but it was agreed that it was not a match and he left after ten episodes.

The CBS show began September 11, 1967, with the final episode March 29, 1978. The series won 25 prime time Emmy Awards. In 2013, TV Guide ranked The Carol Burnett Show number 17 on its list of the 60 Greatest Shows of All Time, and in 2007 it was included on the list of Time’s 100 Best TV Shows of All Time.

Bob Mackie created all the costumes, including evening gowns, character outfits and dance clothing for guests during the run of the show. The hysterical curtain dress from the Went with the Wind! sketch is now housed in the Smithsonian Institute. Burnett credited Mackie with comedic costumes for various characters, which added to the comedy. It is estimated that Mackie had created 17,000 outfits for the show.

For a waltz down memory lane, here is the link to an interview with Carol Burnett and a clip from WENT WITH THE WIND!

    Just seeing that picture makes me laugh. “Went with the Wind” has to be one of the funniest sketches ever.
