In the skit “The New Angel,” Harvey had a hard time keeping it together the entire time! He was informed that he would be getting a new “cloudmate” in his heavenly abode. Apparently, there was a housing crisis in Heaven. Harvey was more than a little irritated to learn that he would be rooming with brand new angel Tim Conway.
Tim was up to his usual goofy antics, even as an angel, and Harvey was too grumpy about having to share his home to teach Tim the heavenly ropes. He couldn’t even be bothered to show Conway how to fly. It’s a wonder what Harvey’s character was even doing in Heaven!
When it was time to tune his harp, Tim decided to play his tuner with his nose. Obviously, that didn’t help Harvey to stay in character.
Throughout the skit, Conway acted like a bored kid trying to entertain himself while Harvey overreacted. The final straw was pulled when Tim dropped a box filled with halos. Harvey couldn’t hold it in any longer and had to turn his smile away from the camera. “Will you let me do my own reactions?” he yells at Conway!
The angry angel throws Conway, who still can’t fly, out of the cloud. Suddenly, Conway’s wing is shot as the skit ends. This is hardly what you would expect to find in Heaven, but exactly the humor you would expect to see on “The Carol Burnett Show!”
