#17453: TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JOHNNY CARSON, THE
1973-10-08, NBC, min.
Johnny Carson, Ed McMahon, Joey Bishop, John Davidson, Gerri Granger, Helen Gurley Brown, George Kennedy, Doc Severinsen, Fernando Lamas, Irwin C. Watson

October 1, 1962-May 22, 1992. Johnny Carson, host of NBC's network late-night "Tonight Show" reigned for 30 unprecedented years...five times the combined tenure of Steve Allen, and Jack Paar. Carson was impervious to competition, including efforts to dethrone him by Les Crane, Joey Bishop, Merv Griffin, Dick Cavett, Jack Paar, Pat Sajak, Joan Rivers, and Arsenio Hall. Sadly, very few complete "Tonight Show" broadcasts survive during Johnny Carson's first ten years of broadcasting. Around 1965, through the early 1970's, oldest tapes were first erased systematically by orders from myopic NBC executives, to be recycled for purposes of saving money. Ironically, in many cases, these older master tapes were too brittle, and portended probable drop-outs for re-use after being erased. Subsequently blank after being erased, these older questionable master 2" Quad tapes were either sparingly used or never used again for recording new programming and eventually were discarded. Saving thousands of dollars at the time (wiping master tapes for potential re-use) resulted in losing millions of dollars by NBC in today's marketplace, and more importantly wiping thousands of historic TONIGHT SHOW broadcasts, which contain precious personal anecdotes from political, show business, and sports icons of the past.

Guest host: Joey Bishop. Guests: George Kennedy, Fernando Lamas, John Davidson, Helen Gurly Brown, Irwin C. Watson, Gerri Granger. NOTE: This specific TONIGHT SHOW may only contain opening monologue by Johnny Carson. Other content will have to be monitored and confirmed upon order request.
#8492: MACY'S THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE: 47TH ANNUAL, THE
1973-11-22, NBC, 120 min.
John Davidson, Tommy Tune, Kent McCord, Martin Milner, Johnny Whitaker, Rockettes, Kathleen Freeman, Fifth Dimension, Johnny Nash

The annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City, one of the world's largest parades, is presented by the U.S. based department store chain Macy's. The parade started in 1924, tying it for the second-oldest Thanksgiving parade in the United States with America's Thanksgiving Parade in Detroit (with both parades being four years younger than Philadelphia's Thanksgiving Day Parade). The two-hour parade is held in Manhattan from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Thanksgiving Day, and has been televised nationally on NBC since 1952. Employees at Macy's department stores have the option of marching in the parade

The 47th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade telecast live from New York City.

Hosts; Martin Milner and Kent McCord   

Scheduled to appear in the Parade and perform are John Davidson, Fifth Dimension, Kathleen Freeman, Johnny Nash, Rockettes, Johnny Whitaker, and Tommy Tune. 

This "lost" parade contains the Golden Books song called:
"GOLDEN MOMENTS."


  It should come as no surprise that many of the telecasts from the 1950s thru the early 1970's are lost, and only one pre-1980 parade exists in full. Network broadcast Kinescopes and Video were either discarded, wiped, or never recorded.  Video recording software (3/4" U-Matic) was first released to the Public at great cost in 1971, and the Betamax (1975) and JVC VHS (1976) gave the public a means to record television broadcasts off the air, but, to date, it seems nobody at home elected to record a complete parade and kept it making the 1971-1979 parades more likely to be found possibly only as clips than the 1952-1971 parades. Certain footage from old telecasts has been shown in anniversary specials, showing that some still exist. Bootleg copies circa 1980 to the present have been posted on You Tube...most all playback reflecting poor to fair quality till the 2000's. 

During the first television years, the parade went through changes. Many of the parade's most iconic balloons were introduced in this period, such as Popeye, Bullwinkle, the Happy Dragon, Underdog, Smokey Bear, Linus the Lionhearted, Sinclair's Dino, and the first two Snoopy balloons. The toy float concept was introduced in the 1960s, with a turkey-shaped one, introduced in 1973, eventually becoming parade mascot Tom Turkey.

A few notable lost parades include the 1956 parade (when Mighty Mouse crashed at Herald Square), 1965 (the debut of Underdog), and 1971 (when all the balloons had to be removed due to bad weather).

#9699: TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JOHNNY CARSON, THE
1977-04-20, NBC, 75 min.
Johnny Carson, John Davidson, Pat Paulsen, Harry Chapin

October 1, 1962-May 22, 1992. Johnny Carson, host of NBC's network late-night "Tonight Show" reigned for 30 unprecedented years...five times the combined tenure of Steve Allen, and Jack Paar. Carson was impervious to competition, including efforts to dethrone him by Les Crane, Joey Bishop, Merv Griffin, Dick Cavett, Jack Paar, Pat Sajak, Joan Rivers, and Arsenio Hall. Sadly, very few complete "Tonight Show" broadcasts survive during Johnny Carson's first ten years of broadcasting. Around 1965, through the early 1970s, oldest tapes were first erased systematically by orders from myopic NBC executives, to be recycled for purposes of saving money. Ironically, in many cases, these older master tapes were too brittle and portended probable drop-outs for re-use after being erased. Subsequently blank after being erased, these older questionable master 2" Quad tapes were either sparingly used or never used again for recording new programming and eventually were discarded. Saving thousands of dollars at the time (wiping master tapes for potential re-use) resulted in losing millions of dollars by NBC in today's marketplace, and more importantly wiping thousands of historic TONIGHT SHOW broadcasts, which contain precious personal anecdotes from political, show business, and sports icons of the past.

Guest Host: John Davidson. This program is joined in progress. 75-minute excerpt.
