CPO Sharkey starring Don Rickles with guests The Dickies

I'm on a real Don Rickles kick right now, so let's watch a bit of his late seventies sitcom, CPO Sharkey (1976-78). He isn't really in the second clip at all, but its footage from the obligatory punk rock episode!

This is Tom Jones Commericial

This footage was originally posted on the amazing Bedazzled TV site that showcases a plethora of rare footage for both online viewing and ordering. Strange commercials, forgotten television shows, oddball celebrity endorsements, and plenty of hard to find garage rock footage abounds over there. Make sure to check it out.

The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson with guest Jim Henson (1974)

I believe Johnny introduces him as Jim Jenson in this clip. It originally aired in January of 1974, but this performance originated about a decade earlier. The creepy electronic music was composed by Raymond "Powerhouse" Scott.

The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson with guest Sammy Davis Jr

Great Carson fun - seems like something is always getting wrecked, stained or destroyed in these old clips.
