Whatever job he takes on—Fireman, Ship’s Captain, Medieval Torturer, and more—The Oldest Man will have you falling down (verrrrrrrrry slooooooowly) with laughter. Guest stars in these episodes: Steve Lawrence and Valerie Harper.
Just Like The Movies Parodies
Among Carol’s most beloved sketches were her spoofs of classic movies, and collected here are the funniest flicks in the show’s history, including “Dr. Nose”, “Disaster ’75”, “Mildred Fierce”, and the all-time classic “Went With The Wind!” Guest stars include Carl Reiner, Ken Berry, Mel Torme, and Lucille Ball.
The Comedy Genius of Tim Conway
Whether as a guest star or as part of the regular cast, Tim Conway always kept the audience—and his fellow performers—in stitches with his unpredictable comedic brilliance.

Featuring guest appearances by Steve Lawrence, Pat Carroll, Ethel Merman, and Charo.
The Legendary Harvey Korman
The ever-incredible Harvey displays his effortless ability to make you laugh in these episodes. Whether onstage alone (giving his belated Emmy acceptance speech, or offering a tour de force performance as a man struggling with middle age) or as part of the ensemble (including an installment of “Carol & Sis” that finds him dragging it up with Carol and Vicki), you can count on Korman each and every time to bring a smile to your face. Guest stars include: Lynn Redgrave, Sid Caesar, Steve Lawrence, Jim Nabors, and Eydie Gorme.

The Charming Lyle Waggoner
More than just a pretty face, Lyle proved extremely capable of flexing his comedy muscles on the show, matching his fellow cast members step for step. Playing off of his image in a sketch as hunky “Hugh Handsome”, making some noise as a drunken sound effects operator, or keeping a stiff upper lip (or at least trying to) as a WWII captive of Tim’s German interrogator, this series of episodes shows off Lyle’s full range to delightful effect. Guest stars include: Mickey Rooney, Ken Berry, Don Rickles, and Bernadette Peters.
