* CrossOver: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mRmoXO1Yg6s One "Family" sketch]] had Eunice be a contestant on ''Series/TheGongShow'', with appearances by Chuck Barris, [[Series/{{MASH}} Jamie Farr]], Jaye P. Morgan, and '''Allen Ludden'''. This is especially brilliant when you remember that Ludden's wife (now-widow) is Creator/BettyWhite, who played Eunice's sister Ellen in the "Family" sketches and on ''MamasFamily''.

** "The Family". Any ''MamasFamily'' fans unfamiliar with the sketches are likely to be surprised at Mama's nastier demeanor (though it did continue into ''MamasFamily'''s early episodes) and much of the focus being on Eunice, who's presented here as more sympathetic. Also, in addition to Eunice and Ellen, a number of other Harper children are introduced, but [[ChuckCunninghamSyndrome are never seen again]], most notably Philip Harper (Creator/RoddyMcDowall), who was originally the focus of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dciOI-Ok23Q the first sketch]].

** Hilariously [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YmbhUN3ZXqU#t=3m14s the final episode of the series]]. Each of the archived clips from Nabors-guested episodes would comprise of Carol introducing Jim, and then cut to a mere still frame of him. Simply put, [[SuburbanCommando Jim Nabors was frozen today]].

* SyndicationTitle: ''Carol Burnett and Friends'', which edited the shows down to a half-hour by omitting the musical numbers.

* SyndicationTitle: ''Carol Burnett and Friends'', which edited the shows down to a half-hour by omitting the musical numbers. Probably the most common example of the trope, as it's the only version of the series that airs in repeats (at least in the US), to the point where some younger viewers might not even be aware this was an edited version of ''The Carol Burnett Show''.
