Ahh, I was thinking "Man I don't remember anything quite like that on the old Carol Burnett Show".

I find it very hard to believe that shot is from 1991. Nimoy looked much older, thicker, and with poor posture in 1991. That looks like a 1960s episode. I think Burnett would have looked much older then, too.

I think they are talking about the clip referenced in Sector7's reply, not the one pictured in the OP.

No, if it exists online it is well hidden.

Well, that gets us halfway there. Now if we can only find that episode...

According to http://carolburnettfan.com/episodeguide.html there was also a Trek parody in the 9/18/67 episode. Guests were Sid Caesar and Liza Minelli.

It suddenly strikes me that this must be a Dr. Spock gag, given the baby.

Yeah, I assumed that as well. Carol Burnett's baby probably has pointed ears, hence her shocked look.

The position of Spock's hand leads me to suspect that he may have quieted the crying baby with the ol' nerve pinch.

He's holding a tumbler. This picture is in a photoshop thread with some info. There, the Dr. Spock angle is mentioned.

The picture is legit (not a photoshop) as it is in gettyimages archives.
