Tiny Tim and Miss Vicki Marry on this Date (December 17th) in 1969

Herbert Buchingham Khaury more commonly known as Tiny Tim married Miss Vicki (Victoria Budinger) on this date in 1969 on The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson.  Tiny Tim was known for his 1920ish  falsetto version of Tiptoe Through the Tulips.  You  may want to visit The Official Tiny Tim Web Site for more information on this flamboyant musician.
Below are the videos of this show including commercials.  I was surprised to see cigarette commercials--really shows you how times have changed.  If you're only interested in seeing the wedding, skip down to the 7th video.  I posted all the segments because I found it fascinating to see the commercials and the changes in television shows.  Oh yes, you can turn the blog's music off by scrolling down the column on your right to the music player and then clicking on the parallel lines.  Enjoy!

  1. Wow I never knew that, thanks for the videos on Tiny Tim, I love the older shows like that, Johnny Carson is looking pretty handsome :o)

  2. Handsome and a lot skinnier than I remember. I had forgotten at how modest the wedding dresses were then compared to now.
