    Those were the days: Tiny Tim singing about worldwide catastrophe, the end of the world and people turning into gill-creatures, as a group of well-dressed children look on. With psychedelic graphics added for the viewing audience.

    I had the pleasure -- and it was a pleasure -- of hanging out with Tiny Tim a few times back in the early 80`s (even met Miss Vicki). He was a walking encyclopedia of popular music from the late 1890`s through the early 1900`s, 20`s, 30`s, 40`s, etc. Yes, he was the most eccentric person I`ve ever met. He was also a genuinely kind and generous person, as well.

    I have dim memories of seeing him on the Tonight Show. Wonder if anyone ever made a documentary about his life. Bet it would be pretty interesting.

    People would yell thru the house "Tiny Tim`s on!!" and all would come running to see what idiocy Herbert Khaury had come up with for whatever variety show appearance he was making. He had the guts to be so ridiculous that people gawked until he became famous - and probably pretty well off.
