In 1976, The Carol Burnett Show aired a sketch comedy segment that is STILL considered to be one of the funniest moments in the history of television. And after watching it again almost 39 years after its initial release, you’ll easily agree!
Carol Burnett has long been thought of as one of the funniest women in comedy, but this famous skit, is what legends are made of. At the time of it’s original airing, the famous 1939 epic film Gone With The Wind had recently aired for the first time on television, so or course Burnett set out creating an amazing parody of the southern drama.
This epic skit was voted #2 in TV Guide’s list of the Top 50 Funniest Moments in Television, it’s a must watch for anyone who wants to take a trip back to comedy from yesteryear!
