Born in San Antonio, Texas, Carol Burnett didn't always dream of being an actress. She had enrolled in the University of California, Los Angeles, with dreams to become a playwright someday, but that changed when she moved to New York City with her then-boyfriend, Don Saroyan.

Burnett's career took off when she made her television debut on a children's show called "The Winchell-Mahoney Show" in the 1950s. She went on to become a regular on "The Garry Moore Show" in 1959.
