Funny Chip Clip!
Video Rating: 4 / 5
I love this!! This is my Great-Aunt Myrtle on Johnny Carson show in 1987. We just went to visit her last summer.
Thanks for posting this classic !
Love this clip! Absolutely classic!
Does anyone happen to have the clip following this one, about Jim Fowler and the bat? If so, can someone post it? It’s one of my favorite animal clips.
@gregj1982 She seemed like a great sincere lady
@Nicar526 Wise decision.
@2ndPistonHonda I wondered if that was pre planned.
That poor old lady almost has a heart attack when she hears that “crunch”. How dare Johnny Carson eat a work of art! Then Johnny pulls that bowl of chips out from behind the desk.
I seem to remember an article in TV Guide calling this the funniest scene ever on tv.
I always hoped to be famous one day and be on the Tonight Show. After Johnny Carson retired in “93 I realized it would never be as grand an experience to be on that show if he wasn’t there.. He will always be the King.
This was sooo funny when it originally aired and it’s still funny. When he crunches on that chip from the bowl her expression is priceless! Johnny was the best.
the most AWESOME setup EVER! Rock on Johnny…
1:30 ow…my ribs hurt….
man, it doesn’t get any better than Johnny!
You can’t get TV like this anymore. “That’s Yogi Bear. I broke his neck.”
I remember watching this when it first aired. It was so cute her expression. Johnny was genious. Nobody will comand the talk show like him for a long time if ever.
And, of course, God bless Johnny Carson. Even in 100 years he’ll probably be the King of Late-Night (I hope there’ll be still people around then who care about his immortal jokes, skits, monologues and interviews).
The great thing about this clip is not only Carson’s comedic genius but also Myrtle Young herself. She seems to be such a good sport, doesn’t seem to take herself and her hobby too serious and she’s also very entertaining. She still laughs after Johnny gave her almost a heart attack and has good quips of her own: “That’s Yogi Bear — I broke his neck.” *lol* God bless her!
What’s wrong with Conan? Just because he’s not as good as Carson doesn’t mean he sucks. No one is as good as Carson. But Conan in my opinion is the best on tv today.
As Zombieland said, “Learn to appreciate the little things”.
The ONE and ONLY KING of late night!
This is my favorite Carson Moment by a mile.
This is one of the best – just seeing Johnny’s expression when Myrtle spins her head around is beyond priceless. I laugh just as hard everytime I see it! I remember seeing it live (original air date that is) back when late night TV was something you looked forward to…Thanks for posting this
You can’t watch just once!!
Easily among the funniest moments in television history.
