Highlights include: a melodrama spoof, "The Drunkard", with guest Bing Crosby in the title role and Carol as his wife; guest Paul Lynde plays the town masochist and Harvey is Mother Marcus in "As the Stomach Turns"; Bing performs a "love medley" of "Put a Little Love in Your Heart" and "Love Thy Neighbor", and duets with Carol on "Get Happy" and "Sing".
Did You Know?
During the As The Stomach Turns sequence, Carol Burnett opened to the door to find Harvey Korman as Mother Marcus. Apparently, he never appeared in rehearsals dressed as Mother Marcus and only used the voice, so the first time they filmed it was actually the first time Burnett had seen him in costume. Her priceless reaction (pausing, slamming the door in his face, then opening it again and breaking character by laughing) was completely genuine. See more
[In the As The Stomach Turns sketch
You don't understand, Mother Marcus. A masochist is someone who likes to suffer.
You got children?
A lot you know about suffering. I have four sons. A lawyer, a doctor, an engineer, and a CPA. Four geniuses, and not one knows how to use the telephone. You understand what I'm talking about?
