At this Youtube URL, take a look at the painstakingly copied Sgt Pepper Lonely Hearts’ Club Band uniforms done by famous costume designer Bob Mackie for the first season of the variety series The Carol Burnett Show. This episode was broadcast October 16, 1967, just 4 months after Sgt Pepper .

John…played by comedienne Phyllis Diller

Paul…played by singer Bobbi Gentry (in fact, her debut album pushed Sgt Pepper Lonely Hearts’ Club Band out of number 1 on the Billboard charts in the USA)

George…played by 4-time Tony Award winner Gwen Verdon

Ringo…played by Carol Burnett

It starts at the 44:26 point in the video.

I had a laugh at the altered lyrics for one of the songs (you can probably guess which one).
