Creative genius and comedy combine in a Halloween-themed video by the Queen of classic television, Carol Burnett. A video from the popular The Carol Burnett show centers around America’s favorite creepy family and has viewers in stitches.

In this Halloween-themed video, Carol Burnett, Chita Rivera, and Caterina Valente perform the song ‘I Enjoy Being a Girl’ from the 1958 Rodgers and Hammerstein musical ‘Flower Drum Song.’

The video opens with a graveyard caretaker sweeping a misty cemetery while tense, spooky music plays in the background. Suddenly, the three women dressed as Morticia Addams from The Adams Family appear from behind the tombstones.
