Gabe Kaplan was FANTASTIC!!!! He stole the show!! Tickled my funny bone!!!

Cindy was cute, but she was nervous and went on too much about her "musk perfume" and how cruel it was to small animals! I love animals and all, but it kind of brought the show down a little, got it to hit a sad note, but after a while she was a little more comfortable! She came off as a typical California, valley type girl!! ( A real valley girl, not the stereotyped , exaggerated version like the movie "Valley Girl" portrays )

Buddy Rich, he was entertaining!! A shame he didn't play his drums though ,but he was plugging his new nightclub!!

And is it just me or was Doc Severson sort of cute/hot??? I was a little girl back than and he was like from my parents generation , I thought of him as an old guy!!! LOL!!!! But now seeing him I was like OK Doc wasn't bad looking back than !!!!

May, 1974 when this aired , I was one month shy of my 12th Birthday!!! It was fun going back in the day like that!!! Glad I watched it!!!


I was like......."what the hell is she talking about? going on and on about some damm perfume lol


And Yes Gabe OWNED his time on the show. Very funny

I would bet her feelings have changed!

Yeah!!! I was taking note of that too!!!

You are probably too young to remember the show kung Fu? IDK if you ever saw it in reruns? But a lot of Gabe's material was a parody on Kung Fu, and Gabe was really good, very funny!

And Euell Gibbons came up with Gabe and also in Johnny's monologue ,he was a guy that was really into natural foods, and did commercials for Grape Nuts cereal!! He was the butt of a lot of jokes back than!!!


I got all the jokes, due to my age, but younger people watching might not!! ! That's why I was saying on another thread one time that the Tonight show esp. older eps. might go over the younger people that post here heads!!! And other posters were arguing up and down with me, but I knew what I was talking about!!

Kreskin is still out there today doing stuff at 81. He was a David Letterman regular, which is how I know him. You guys have talked me into DVR-ing the 1:30 am showing, so I can see what happened.

^ The show was awesome, to me, except for "The Amazing Kreskin". What was that even about?? I LOVE Johnny, though, and Gabe Kaplan and Cindy Williams were VERY good. Poor Euell Gibbins though lol

Johnny Carson is my all-time favorite late-night host. I was VERY depressed when he ended his show, and I shed a few tears when he died. He was one of those rare celebrities who made his viewers feel like they were friends. He had a very quick wit, but his humor was never, ever mean-spirited. He never made his guests feel uncomfortable. And something I loved was how he would often have regular folks on as guests. He did not treat them any differently than the biggest stars he would have on.

Bonnie, you and I are about the same age. I'm just a year younger. It's funny that you remember all those jokes about Euell Gibbons because so do I! It has to mean something that two people who were only 11 or 12 year-old kids at the time can remember him so well! You never hear his name mentioned anymore, but back then (and I think our memories are backing this up) he was a household name. I recall a sketch on the Carol Burnett Show where they did a take-off on his Grape Nuts commercial. I think it was Tim Conway playing Euell Gibbons, and he was eating everything in sight. I And I can remember Euell Gibbons died there were jokes going around about how he died, jokes (of course) having to do with something he ate as he was known for eating virtually anything in his backyard. He died at a not very advanced age (mid 60s?), so it got people questioning his diet.

And yes, I remember Kung Fu! That was David Carradine. I used to watch that show often. It only ran for about two seasons, but left a big impression on me!

Do you remember Apple's Way by any chance? I can hear the theme music in my head as I type this
