For more than a decade Carol and her supporting troupes
entertained America with song, dance, and comedy in one
of the most successful variety series of all time. 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.
Jim Nabors, one of Carol's close friends, was her good
luck charm and always appeared on the first telecast of
each season. The show reaped a harvest of Emmys
including three for best variety series.

Among Carol's extensive repertoire of comic characterizations
were a few recurring sketches that persisted for years.
In "Mr. Tuddball and Mrs. Wiggins" she played an inept,
blonde office worker with a frustrated, ever-suffering boss
played by Tim Conway. In "Ed and Eunice" she and Harvey
Korman were an uptight married couple constantly at odds
with Eunice's mother, played by Vicki Lawrence. In "Old
Folks at Home" Carol and Roger, Played by Carol and
Harvey, were an unhappily married couple who fought
almost all the time. "As The Stomach Turns"
was a continuing soap-opera satire.



The January 23, 1999 issue of TV Guide ranked the above
