Carol was a beautiful comedienne who appeared as the "Matinee Lady" on the "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" (1962). She would come out during one of Carson's regular sketches known as "The Tea Time Movie." Carson played the lecherous character "Art Fern" who would make references to Carol's ample bosom. She played opposite Carson in over 100 sketches. She also played on one of the most popular episodes of "I Spy" (1965) opposite Robert Culp. While Carol seemed to make no attempt to downplay her role as a dim-witted sex symbol, in reality she did make many attempts to hone her acting skills by working in the multitude of situation and sketch comedies that adorned the 1970s.
