Neatorama presents a guest post from actor, comedian, and voiceover artist Eddie Deezen. Visit Eddie at his website or at Facebook.

Incredible as it may seem to all of us Johnny Carson fans, it has now been 25 years since Johnny Carson last hosted The Tonight Show. On May 22, 1992, Johnny hosted his 4,531st and final Tonight Show. As over 50 million viewers tuned in, there were no guests that night, and Johnny sat alone on a stool and conducted a retrospective hour and said a heartfelt final goodbye to his fans.

Since Johnny's retirement, as all the other talk show hosts will freely admit, Johnny has been irreplaceable and remains the #1 most beloved talk show host in the history of television. Let's take a look at a few little-known facts about Johnny Carson.
1. He started out in show business as a magician, calling himself "the great Carsoni."

2. Early in his career, Johnny also worked as a ventriloquist. His dummy's name was "Eddie."

3. While serving in the Navy, Johnny's biggest moment was filling in for Rita Hayworth during a magic show given by Orson Welles and letting Welles saw him in half.

4. Johnny was 10 and 0 as an amateur boxer during his Navy service during World War II.

5. Johnny co-wrote the familiar Tonight Show theme with Paul Anka. Anka wrote the music, Johnny wrote the lyrics. Although the lyrics were never used during the show's run, Johnny collected 50% of the residual payments. The song was known as "Johnny's theme."

6. When asked who he most wanted as a guest on The Tonight Show, Johnny replied "Cary Grant." Grant never did show up as a guest.

7. He was an expert drummer. Johnny once appeared on The New American Bandstand and stood in for the drummer.

8. In 1966, Johnny single-handedly helped popularize the new board game Twister, when he played a round of the game with Eva Gabor on the show. Sales of "twister" soon skyrocketed.

9. Johnny was originally considered by Carl Reiner for the Rob Petrie role in what later became The Dick Van Dyke Show.

10. He was also considered for the role of "Cookie" in the 1960 Elvis Presley film G.I. Blues.

11. Johnny was offered Harvey Korman's role as Hedley Lamar in Mel Brooks' Blazing Saddles. He turned the role down.

12. Johnny appeared in only one actual movie during his entire career. 1964's Looking for Love starring Connie Francis.

13. After his retirement, he taught himself Swahili, which he used to communicate during several trips to Africa.

14. He did not speak during his final public appearance. In 1994, he made a guest appearance on Late Night with David Letterman. Upon seeing him, the audience went crazy and gave Johnny an almost two-minute standing ovation. Johnny simply got up and walked off the stage. He later claimed he had a case of "acute laryngitis."

Deck, thanks for posting. My family & I, like the rest of America, really really liked Johnny.

There will never ever be anyone replace him !!!

Si vis pacem, para bellum

Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God.

There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."Theodore Roosevelt-1907.

I am concerned for the security of our great nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within." -- General Douglas MacArthur

Johnny Carson was a class act all the way. There is no other late night comedic host to replace him. He was the man of the hour.

I did a little amateur boxing back in the day. I have no idea what what my record was, but I am sure I won more than I lost. people always thought i was weird because I liked to lead with my right hand even though I am right handed.
