I have watched the clip before. I thought it was posted by someone on this board. Try YouTube... use keywords like Carol Burnett, Leonard Nimoy, etc. Where did you find the image? Often you can use that to find others like it.

I did find this gem of a Carol Burnett TOS clip:
It's "The Procrustean Petard."

Ugh, what a horrible story that was.

That isn't the "Proctustean Petard" from the New Voyages short story collections. Same premise, but Carol Burnett played it for laughs, obviously. The short story was better, but not one of the finer examples of Fan Trek.

Re: Spock on Carol Burnett

I was kidding--I know they aren't really the same. Spock and the Klingon (Kang in the story) don't become slash fic hyper alphas trying to get into Kirk's panties, for instance. (Were you Team Spock or Team Kang? I was Team Kang! Giggle giggle shriek!) And, as far as I'm concerned, the story was worse.

The skit clip is from the brief 1991 revival.

I was team "What the-?"

And does it matter which we thought was worse? The only thing going for the Carol Burnett version was the laughs. At least the short story tried to get the characterization correct. Tried, mind you. I don't think it succeeded.

No, it's not a photoshop, but that's where I found it on this bbs (a photoshop thread). It would take hours to find it, but it's in there. I think all the info on that thread had accumulated here, though. Dr. Spock skit. Real. Guest shot. That's about it, eh?

Re: Spock on Carol Burnett

I confess. It was never a television episode. This is my baby picture. I am the love child of Spock and Carol Burnett.

Seriously, I have not been able to locate more than a reference to the episode, so far.

It appears that the black & white episodes of Carol Burnett didn't make it into the syndication package, and there's been no full series released on home video that I can find.

There's no reason why a comedy show on one network can't do a sketch based on another network's show. For instance, in 2006, Matthew Fox did a sketch about Lost (an ABC show) on Saturday Night Live (an NBC show). Similarly, the famous Shatner SNL episode that featured the "Get a life!" sketch and "The Restaurant Enterprise" also featured a sketch based on T. J. Hooker, which was on both ABC and CBS but never NBC. It's parody, after all, so copyright infringement isn't an issue.

Re: Spock on Carol Burnett

It's already been pretty well established that yes, it happened, yes, the picture is legit.

Good Lord, when did everyone get so frelling suspicious?

To my knowledge, there are no black and white episodes of the Carol Burnett Show; it was in color from the get-go. In fact, I'm pretty sure that by 1967, there were no more black & white shows in production, certainly not at the network level.

Publicity stills, however, were commonly done in b&W at this time.
