Storyline

In the comedy segment, Johnny continues the previous evening's display of novelty holiday toys and gifts. He then reads children's letters to Santa that are received by the Post Office, with information to contact the PO if one wishes to help the less fortunate. (This is an annual segment on the show.) Jack Paar, the only guest, come out and talks about his career and various events. He tells the story of how he used to get five dollars from his mother for his birthday, even as an adult, and used that to buy a Rolls-Royce. He also tells how he sent Cuban cigars to J. Edgar Hoover. A clip is shown from his upcoming special of an old "Tonight Show" interview of Elsa Maxwell. Written by lenab9011
