Steve Martin, Dick Van Dyke And Betty White Hysterical Appearances On The Carol Burnett Show

The Carol Burnett Show sported an all-star cast made up of legendary comedians and, from time to time, also attracted notable guests like Betty White, Steve Martin and Dick Van Dyke.

Over the years, many shows have hit the airwaves trying to provide audiences with laughter and a momentary escape from reality. Some have been more successful than others. But very few, only a handful of television programs, have gone on to become classics. The Carol Burnett Show still manages to keep people laughing even decades after it last aired.

One of the main reasons The Carol Burnett Show continues to make people laugh is because of its incredibly talented cast, including Tim Conway and Carol Burnett. But in select episodes, other comedians and comedic actors popped up on the show.

A clip posted on YouTube features some of those hysterical celebrity guest appearances. The clip begins with Steve Martin trying to expand his audience, trying to appeal specifically to dogs. He says that he has come up with comedy that man’s best friend will appreciate.

“Now, a lot of dogs watch TV, but there’s nothing really on that they can enjoy, maybe a couple of commercials, and that’s about it,” Steve said. “So, I ‘ve worked up a comedy act for dogs.”

Steve’s bit even has several dogs sitting in front of him so he can test how well his act is going. But things go about as well as can be expected. 

Later in the clip, Betty White and Carol appear in a Mama’s Family skit. Betty and Carol get into an argument that is overheard by Mama. That doesn’t work out well for anyone.

Finally, Dick Van Dyke and Carol sing a song together. Dick, following the lyrics of the song, then dumps paint on Carol. Eventually, the two legendary comedians break out into laughter.
