“The Carol Burnett Show ” brought American families together for eleven seasons of laughs. Classic sketch comedy gave us the opportunity to enjoy humor without any inappropriate language, so everyone could watch it together.
Carol Burnett As The Queen
It was always a treat when Carol Burnett played the Queen. She would try to appear stuffy but when things went sideways, she would lose it in dramatic fashion!
Tim Conway provided the perfect foil to the formal Queen who didn’t quite understand how to handle him!
Tim Conway was an essential part of the show’s success . He was so relatable and incredibly silly, often improvising and going off script to make his castmates laugh.
That was often the best part of the show!
In the skit below, Queen Carol is attempting to give Conway a medal for his military service. There is a big problem though as Conway doesn’t want the medal.
Tim Conway Does Not Want A Medal
This war hero wants a pony instead and he tells the Queen to stick the medal in her ear.
No Queen is used to being treated this way!
Conway swallowed a hand grenade to save his entire platoon, so Queen Carol and King Harvey Korman think he deserves the pony he wants  think he deserves the pony he wants.
However, when a pony is brought out for Conway, he doesn’t think it’s good enough.
He wants a blue pony. By this point, the properly behaved Queen begins losing it.
Decorum Out The Window
By the end of the skit, the Queen and King have lost all sense of decorum with Conway, even threatening to behead this war hero.

Her tiara even has to be adjusted!
