* HeyItsThatGuy / RetroactiveRecognition:
** To put it simply, anybody ''with a pulse'' from 1967 to 1978 will have guest-starred on the show.
** Hell, even some of ''the audience members'' were (and are) recognizable. Modern viewers will likely find ''[[TheSilenceOfTheLambs Hannibal Lecter]]'' being in the audience rather hilarious.

Added DiffLines:

* HarpoDoesSomethingFunny: Tim Conway either added his own embellishments or went completely off script during his appearances, sending sketches off the rails and causing the cast to break character to the delight of the audience.

* TheUnperson: Sort of. The fact that Dick Van Dyke was an actual cast member during the last years (replacing Harvey Korman) is rarely brought up in documentaries or behind the scenes specials, and said episodes rarely air in syndication. Mainly because many people felt those episodes [[SeasonalRot weren't very good]], and that Dyke had no real chemistry with Carol, Tim, or Vicky. Even Dyke himself [[OldShame looks back at his time on the show with regret and embarrassment.]] On the other hand, Dyke does remain good friends with Burnett.

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: The first five seasons of the series (1967-1972) are co-owned with Bob Banner, preventing them from subsequent syndication and home video releases. With Banner's death in 2011, the outcome of this looked uncertain, until Carol Burnett and Time/Life announced a 2015 DVD release of those seasons.

Added DiffLines:

* ApprovalOfGod: Initially, viewers did not find the "Norma Desmond" sketches [[DudeNotFunny very funny]], and felt they were an insult to actress Gloria Swanson (whom the sketches were a parody of). Gloria Swanson though appeared in one episode explaining that she thought they were hilarious.
