Old folks Molly and Bert shuffle onto the front porch to their rocking chairs and exchange witty jokes about growing old. Audiences of all ages won’t stop laughing. The Old Folks #1: Molly cools Bert’s ardor with one-liner put-downs. The Old Folks #2: Bert tries to persuade Molly to take a glamorous vacation together. The Old Folks #3: The rocking chair lovers reminisce, because there’s not much else left! The Old Folks #4: Another suitor tries to capture Molly’s fancy, much to Bert’s dismay. The Old Folks #5: The couple try to stay awake to ring in the New Year. The Old Folks #6: Bert spies on a "topless" male lifeguard when the couple vacations to Florida. The Old Folks #7: Deciding what to watch on TV becomes a challenge when Molly can’t remember the name of the show she wanted to watch. The Old Folks #8: Recalling the details of their honeymoon is difficult when Bert and Molly keep falling asleep. The sketches are fast paced and sure to challenge actors of any skill level.

Associate producer Robert Wright and the entire staff of the Carol Burnett Show are donating their share of profits from the sale of this comedy material to the Navajo Indian Children’s Scholarship Trust.
