Johnny Carson

I just discovered this, and it is HILARIOUS! I was actually rolling around laughing. Here they are on Johnny Carson. I'm sorry that the title is such a spoiler, but I guess if you know about this guy it won't be much of a surprise. This is now my favorite thing.

Jackie Cooper on Johnny Carson talks briefly about when he won an award for Skippy (1930) when he was 9 years old. He explains very casually that they had to wake him up to tell him. He was asleep in Marie Dressler's lap. What a bygone era!

What a story! I love those kinds of anecdotes. That's one thing that made the Hollywood series so interesting.

I remember Rod Hull and his Emu from way back in the seventies when they were a regular act on the Hudson Brothers' Razzle Dazzle Show. Tragically, Hull died before his time due to a fall from his roof while adjusting his TV antenna.

Here's an appearance by Charles Nelson Reilly that I just watched. The more I watch him on this show, the more I really like Reilly.

That was funny. :D He was good at improvising—kind of reminds me almost of Paul Lynde in that.
