Criswell, Woody Allen & The Muppets: Damn, "The Tonight Show" used to be awesome!
On New Years Eve 1965, Johnny Carson's guests on The Tonight Show included Woody Allen (back when he was a standup comedian), the Muppets (long before they had their own show), and best of all, CRISWELL! Yes, the psychic from several of Ed Wood's movies made one of his many Tonight Show appearances that night. And bless my soul, he even says some of his lines from Plan 9 From Outer Space. Fortunately, some wonderful person has put a clip of this up on YouTube. Gaze in astonishment, dear reader, at the awesomeness that once was The Tonight Show. (Oh, how the mighty have fallen!)
