Cheetah Frightens Johnny Carson Right Into The Arms Of Ed McMahon

In this hilarious clip, Johnny Carson is frightened by a cheetah on his show and jumps right into the arms of Ed McMahon!


“Just relax” says Johnny Carson to the cheetah. “They say if you look an animal right in the face and talk to them then they know you’re not scared.”

Right after he finishes saying that, the cheetah lashes out and swings his paw at the top of the cage towards Johnny Carson. This ends up making him yell and run over to Ed McMahon where he jumps right into his arms. And the audience erupts in laughter at the hysterical sight!

“This is a perfect example of Johnny Carson's comedic genius,” comments one person on the YouTube video. “He is legitimately scared (who wouldn't be) but then instantly turns it into a joke by running into Ed's arms, and all off the cuff.”

“Watching these old Johnny Carson videos tonight have made me laugh so much my stomach hurts! Classic stuff right here,” writes another person after watching the video. “Mr. Carson, you are deeply missed!”
