Ed Sullivan Show: George Carlin, the Hippy-Dippy Weatherman

December 24, 1967: Before George Carlin outwardly embraced his inner foul mouth, and before he decided to grow a beard and wear his hair down to there, he did characters, including Al Sleet, the Hippy-Dippy Weatherman. He was on Ed Sullivan 11 times from 1967 until the show’s wrapup in 1971.

Three months earlier, The Doors got banned from the show for Jim Morrison singing, “Girl, we couldn’t get much higher.” But George could say, “Mexican high” on a Christmas Eve, and still get invited back.
