Johnny Carson 1925-2005 ...You will be missed

I told somebody today, he's already been missed for 13 years. It took two men to fill his shoes and I'm not sure they got the job done. :(

This should give us an idea of how young everybody is on this board. Johnny retired 13 years ago. Most of these kids weren't old enough to stay up that late and have no recollection of him whatsoever! For example, I barely remember Ed Sullivan.

I love Letterman, but Carson is and always will be the King.

I remember the Ed Sullivan Sunday night show!! ('Ya, I'm 58) Was a good show! I recall 2 acts.
1. The introduction to America of the Beatles, and
2. That guy always spinning those plates atop the long sticks, Remember?
In case you don't recall ... the sponcer was Lincoln-Mercury !!

Teenagers today wondr who were the Beatles, and when they hear their records, they go YEEeeeCH !! Elvis? Elvis Who? Costello ?? Waht's an Edsel? Studebaker or DeSoto? (Grocho Marx knows!)
Where's my Hula Hoop? Davey Crockett stole it!

I remember the plate spinner, and Senor Wences. That's about it.

you guys got me on this one ...never saw him on TV per say , but reruns and old shows of his air now and then on diffrent channels ,thats how i know his work....i was 10 or 11 when he retired ....

the great carnack or whatever it was when he held the letter up to his head was always good stuff ....

most of my geenration however doesnt stay in tune with history like me , hell 90% of my generation doesnt even know what a pinto is ....outside a bean in some kind of food....

Well said...I agree. The show was never the same after he left.

'Really big shew!'
I barely remember Ed, but Johnny beat them all at late night. In fact, I haven't watched the Tonight Show since he retired. Jay who? I liked Johnny with the animals the best. Spontenaity, priceless! (Did I spell that right?.... Maybe I should take a night course in English... :confused: ) But I digress..
Johnny was a gem.
