Throwback Thursday Comedy Special: Buddy Hackett on The Johnny Carson Tonight Show in 1973


We thought that we had run out of Buddy Hackett videos and were pleasantly surprised to find a mother lode of Buddy's appearances on the Johnny Carson Tonight Show. It's rare to find a Hackett video these days, especially one that's clean. 

So go back with us 44 years to 1973 when Buddy made one of his visits to Carson's late night show.

In this episode, Buddy tells of his scouting days when he raised rabbits for a merit badge in animal husbandry, how his father converted a would-be robber into an upholsterer, his antics as a cook in the army, and how he met his wife Sherrine duBois, daughter of Esther Cohen, at the Concord Hotel.

Enjoy!
