The Ed Sullivan retrospect the night before (Tuesday)
was disappointing to me in that it left out all but a 
snippet of video (with no audio) of Topo Gigio (the mouse puppet who always
said, "I love you, Eddie!"), and 
nothing beyond a verbal mention of Senor Wences (the man
who created faces by painting faces on his fists) I
may have missed it, but I don't even think they had a
clip of the Rolling Stones.
