    The best he ever did on Carol Burnett. Great Vicki Lawrence interview when she said they did two elephant skits. They would do a show on Saturday afternoon in front of an an audience then weed out the unfunny lines and make some tweaks for the live show. His first elephant story was axed because the producers said you couldn’t say an elephant and his trainer were “lovers” on TV. He then came up with the elephant Siamese twins. When you get Dick Van Dyke on his back laughing and unable to talk you’re funny.

    Tim Conway provided more laugh-until-you-need-to-pee moments than anyone I can remember on TV. Korman often helped it along by dropping out of character, but the moments emanated from Conway.

    Didn’t Conway tell Conan that Korman lost control of his bladder during the dentist sketch?

    Always surprised it was the stupid Dorf videos that finally got the guy paid. How did it take nine years for him to become a regular on the Carol Burnett show?

    Just saw this thread.
    This sucks.
    Didn't realize he was 85.
    The elephant clip is a classic.

    There are very few things funnier to watch than "The Carol Burnett Show" actors cracking up.
