The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson with guest Buddy Hackett

Buddy Hackett guests on Carson from this nineteen eighties episode. At the 37 second point Buddy mentions a brand of scotch that is blurred so that we can't hear it with the sound of backwards audio. At the 1:07 point somebody else's voice is dubbed in with "foot" instead of "dick." A couple of seconds we hear Hackett apologize to "Fred," as in producer Fred DeCordova. Ironically, after the joke Hackett talks about how the joke wouldn't work if he used a different word like "haircut," little did he know at the time that the network would change it to the word "foot."

These kids are getting to regulars on Classic Television Showbiz just like Muhammad Ali! We've seen part of this before - the kids' rendition of Devil with a Blue Dress On. But now we have the tail end of Johnny's monologue at the start and an extra added garage rock song at the end. Check it.
