* {{Blooper}}: Of course a compilation of them was released.
** Though many ended up in the final broadcasts.
* EditedForSyndication: The intros with the audience and non-musical sketches were edited into the half hour 1978 show ''Carol Burnett and Friends''.
* EnforcedMethodActing: According to Carol, the reason behind Ms. Wiggins's trademark walk was due to the fact that the skirt she was given was too large and walking that way was the only way to keep it from falling off.
* 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.
** "A Special Evening with Carol Burnett": Eunice's psychiatrist will be familiar to ''[[TheGoldenGirls Golden Girls]]'' fans as the pyromaniac in the episode "'Twas the Nightmare Before Christmas".
* 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 looks uncertain.
** The bulk of the musical numbers have not been seen since the original network airings due to licensing issues. Eventually, a DVD collector's edition of the show which includes the musical numbers was released by mail order offering only 2 episodes per $19.95 disc, the extra money going for the licensing.
* ThrowItIn: The show would only do two takes a sketch, meaning even flubbed lines would get thrown in the broadcast.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: In interviews, Tim Conway said that in the 80s he was offered a chance to star in a ''Mr. Tudball'' spin-off. He declined because he didn't see much potential for storylines, plus the fact that Carol would not be playing Miss Wiggins.
