From 1981, just after Walter Cronkite retired from the CBS Evening News, Johnny Carson did a spoof…need we say more? This is GREAT!!!!
5:22 Would’ve been funny if he did that with a big picture of Jay Leno in 1992.
Porky Pig AND Woody Woodpecker? Damn Carson carries more comedic consistency then a Canary being Consumed by a Cat
@AarHan3, a Johnny Carson classic!
@MrPman851 19 years of “tickety-tickety-tickety”. :^)
Talk about going out in style. :^)
Walter Cronkite replaced Douglas Edwards
“This isn’t The Mary Tyler Moore Show!”. LMAO!
I started watching Johnny when I was in high school in the mid 70s and I just loved him. Still the best. Nobody working now can even compare! RIP Johnny (and Ed)….
Too bad they’re aren’t any more people like Johnny. RIP
@RodneyWelch, it’s on the Johnny Carson video collection released in 1994.
Funny stuff. i doubt they ever repeated that sketch after Jessica Savitch’s death in 1983.
“Kids, wet your finger like so. Now, go jam that little sucker in the wall socket. Trust your Uncle Walter, it won’t hurt a bit!”
For god’s sake, knock of that tickety-tickety-tickety sound!
LOFL!!!!! LOVE IT Johnny!
I remember watching this as a 7 year old at home in the living room! Now both of these men are gone.
If it was prerecorded, then how could he have paused for the audience reactions?
Censorship = bullshit. Come on, fucking stop it with this politically correct nonsense.
What the hell is a broad doing in a newsroom, this aint the Mary Tyler Moore Show! PRICELESS! XD
@rkc2380 Oh I know! No worries, actually someone on Facebook pointed out my inaccuracy. I gotta tell ya, I was kinda young in 1992, so I cant say that I really know what happened, but, after everything that went down this year, I have a new respect for David Letterman. AND, I have found Letterman to be pretty damn funny, but, i miss Conan, and we all REALLY miss Johnny.
@walyern wasn’t being disrespectful to you, just making a joke all though j leno is one
@rkc2380 Let me fix my years, RIP TONIGHT SHOW (1954-1992 and 2009-2010).
@walyern you mean 1954-1992 (the year Johnny Carson retired)
Jay, Mr. Carson is tired of your $h!t.
OMG PRICLESS! XD RIP Tonight Show (1954-2010).
“19 years of tickety-tickety!”
“What the hell is a broad doing in here anyway? This ain’t the Mary Tyler Moore show!”
Carson was a great comedian, hands down. Funny though how he opened his sketch here… you couldn’t say those things on TV today about broads getting in the kitchen. Hell, even Obama would be on TV disgracing you for saying it. But anyway I laughed and loved it, Johnny was a true classic and a hard act to follow.
