Carol chose children from the ages 5-9 years old to be in the panel for the show. She said that they just blurt out whatever they are thinking and that is what they wanted. When kids get a little older, they are more self-aware and don’t always say the funny things they are thinking.

Art Linkletter’s Kids Say the Darndest Things was an inspiration for the new show

The show is similar to Art Linkletter’s Kids Say the Darndest Things from the mid-’90s. Carol got the inspiration not only from Art Linkletter’s old show but her own. When she did the 50th anniversary special for The Carol Burnett Show, she saw that funny sketches and a live studio audience were not dead. In fact, people still loved them!

Before Carol made a show with Netflix, she shopped around with a scripted series. Unfortunately, ABC and other networks wanted to change her ideas too much. She said that back in the day, television executives would leave her alone and trust her ideas. Now, things are much different. This moved her away from a scripted series into the Netflix show.

Carol said that ABC wanted to re-cast, rewrite, and it just didn’t end up being Carol’s vision. She said that Netflix gave her more creative power. What do you think about Carol’s views on ABC versus Netflix? Do you think this is where the future of television is going?
