Anyone who is old enough to remember TINY TIM singing “Tip Toe Through The Tulips” in falseto in the mid 60’s, was thoroughly entertained by this new sensation who played it straight calling Johnny Carson…” Mr. Carson”. I think this is a jigsaw puzzle. (Bonanza is a separate game in display)

    Although his voice drove me nuts I thought ‚ÄúTip Toe Though The Tulips” was a perfect record for its time. It was actually the first hit of Richard Perry, a great guy and man who went on to control the 70’s and 80’s with the massive number of hit records he produced including my very own “Neutron Dance”.

    Tiny Tim was so extreme. I thought it was brilliant that he could pierce through the pop-culture veneer and be a star. How many people could have pulled off getting married on Johnny Carson? Only to be topped by the fact that Tiny Tim actually got married. I’ve always wondered about Miss Vicki.

    I’ve never seen a Tiny Tim game. I’ve never even heard of one. This is without a doubt an excellent find!

    You should submit that Bonanza game too.

    That’s right, he actually got married to Miss Vickie on late night Johnny Carson. He was no kid by the time he reached this level of success. I know he passed away years ago. Not sure what he recorded after “Tip Toe…”. Kudos to Tiny Tim.

    Just in case I’ve never shared the tale before, I had my very first uke signed by Tiny (nee Herbert Khaury) about four years before he passed away after collapsing (where else) on stage performing:

    “To un Troy, Keep Playing. Tiny Tim”

    What a sweet, sincere guy. Always attributed his longevity to Miss Clairol and Depends.
