Early Television Memories
The Ed Sullivan Show

Issue Date: August 11, 2009
City: North Hollywood, CA

“Our whole family would watch ‘The Ed Sullivan Show’ on Sunday night at 8 o’clock.  I can remember the Beatles going on there and all the girls screaming.   And the Beatles with their long hair, my parents didn’t really care for that.  There was Elvis Presley – I don’t think my parents liked him at all!  But (the puppet) Topo Gigio was a cute little thing.  He’d tell jokes.  He used to crawl up Ed’s arm and give him kisses.  And Ed always liked to say, “We have a REALLY big show (pronounced “shoe”)!”  – Jean L.

As television sales began to skyrocket in 1948, America discovered a host of talented performers.  Ed was the man to introduce them.  A keen evaluator of talent, he had a knack for assessing and satisfying the nation’s interests.  Performances by the Beatles and Elvis became legendary, and an appearance on the show was seen as a ticket to stardom.  Overall, more than 10,000 entertainers appeared during the show’s 23-year run.

  • 1847 5¢ Benjamin Franklin, red-brown, thin bluish wove paper, imperforate U.S. #1 - First U.S. Postage Stamp
