Tracey on Caroll

"She's like celebrating people," adds Tracey Ullman, who insists that even at Burnett's most hideous, as in the Eunice character from the skit that would later become the Vicki Lawrence series "Mama's Family," there's a charitable treatment of the person she's playing.

"Carol wasn't imitating people to be mean about them or to put them down," says the actress Tracey Ullman. "She was celebrating people."

Watch, Carol Burnett: A Woman of Character, on PBS, Monday, November 5 at 9PM.
