Johnny Carson - Tributes, fave memories

I cried during the second to last show, and seeing clips of Bette Midler's "One More For the Road" can still make me weep after almost 22 years. On January 23, 2005, the world lost Johnny Carson. I wanted to share some of my favorite youtube clips I found.

David Letterman's tribute to Johnny at the start of his first new show after Johnny died:


Johnny's final on camera TV appearance, back on May 13, 1994:



A couple of Carnac the Magnificent segments:

Three Dog Night:


One of the final segments:


A monologue that went very rough:


Jimmy Stewart (14 minute segment, mentions his flying past and playing the accordian):


Phrases you'll never hear:
