As Carson grew into the show, his comedy grew as well; he started dropping his early reliance on slightly risqué material for more substantial comedic commentary on the news of the day. Johnny's monologue became the country's most acutely observed political barometer. Johnny made fun of them all: anyone in politics or show business or public life.
To me, democracy means placing trust in the little guy, giving the fruits of nationhood to those who built the nation. Democracy means anyone can grow up to be president, and anyone who doesn't grow up can be vice president.
Whenever Carson added a skit to an episode, the "Mighty Carson Art Players" would be announced as guest stars.
A number of 90-minute episodes from the 1970s were reedited to fit 60-minute timeslots for rerun purposes.
