Back in 1974, the country music star was part of an elaborate Candid Camera gag. After "twisting her ankle," Dolly asked men to carry her to her car — but, dang it, she couldn't remember where her parking spot was.
It was in 1976 when childhoods changed forever after Dolly Parton appeared on the Captain Kangaroo kiddies show.
If you're a kid of the '80s, you probably caught the 1983 episode of Alvin and the Chipmunks featuring Dolly. The superstar made a guest appearance when Alvin entered a singing contest hoping to win a duet with his favorite singer (guess who).
This campy 1984 classic teamed up Dolly with Sylvester Stallone. In the film, country singer Dolly makes a bet with her sleazy nightclub boss that she can turn anyone into a country music star — including an uncouth New York cabbie played by Sly. Hijinks ensue.
This mostly forgotten 1991 TV movie was a dark turn for Dolly. She starred as a singer terrorized by a drunk, abusive manager played by Gary Busey. Oh, and there's a murder mystery, too.
Dolly often collaborated with her good friend, fellow country star Barbara Mandrell. Dolly played herself in a cheesy TV movie about Mandrell's life, while Mandrell guest-starred on Dolly's short-lived '80s variety show.
Miss Congeniality 2 was pretty odd to begin with, but the scene where Sandra Bullock tackles and gropes Dolly is really bizarre.
Many Dolly fans know that she's the godmother of queer superstar Miley Cyrus. Dolly featured Cyrus's father, Billie Ray, in one of her videos and hit it off with the family. At the 25th anniversary of Dollywood — Dolly's Tennessee amusement park — Miley showed up and guested on a duet of "Jolene."
Promoting their 2012 musical film A Joyful Noise, Dolly appeared on Queen Latifah's now-defunct talk show. Dolly rapped — and it was... something.
Dolly appeared on the October 1978 cover of Playboy, but the playful goddess only answered questions; she declined a nude photo shoot.
