Two BOTNS favorites together at last: Ethel Merman and FENCES!

Here's an interesting clip recently posted on YouTube: From The Tonight Show, Johnny Carson welcomes Ethel (Rudolph and Frosty's Christmas in July) Merman AND Madlyn Rhue (Poor Devil), AKA "Fences."

Merman sings, of course, and then joins Johnny at the desk; while Rhue has all kinds of things to say in her panel segment. My only regret is that this is just before Ethel's disco era!

Wait, the classic clip has been restricted by the uploader! I can't embed it anymore, but you can still click here to see Ethel Merman peforming disco numbers before a befuddled kids' audience.
