A gentle, compassionate showman, there was still another side to Sullivan. He could be very quick to take offense if he felt that he had been crossed or betrayed and could hold a grudge for a long time. Comedian Jackie Mason

agreed to change what Sullivan considered inappropriate ...
Sullivan, whose somewhat awkward demeanor was often poked fun of and who had a sense of humor himself, became a media icon.
