Herman with Mr. Ed Sullivan
“Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket …….” I remember years ago sitting on the neighbor’s swing and hearing that song coming from someone’s house. I always thought it was a pretty song and now I sing it to my grandson when I take care of him. I would like to hear you sing that song :)
Just found out I will be singing it to another grandchild in April:):):)
Peter I once read that Ed Sullivan promised your parents that he would take you boys to Sunday Mass when you were on his show. Did he really take you?
I have you on the Ed Sullivan show your jokes were funny and your alway’s alot of fun to watch
Just watched you singing “Now Ain’t That Just a Little Bit Better?”, IN COLOR, on the latest PBS Ed Sullivan Special on PBA30 in Atlanta, GA. This is the first time I’ve seen this show; but from the comments sections, it was probably done quite a while back . . . . you were wearing a Hawaiian print shirt and Eric Burdon had long, brown hair. Anyway, nice show!!
“It’s Nice to be out in the Morning. . . when you’ve got somewhere to go!” :)
(and don’t forget your whip!)

You are a very funny man, Mr. Noone. No grey areas there!!!!!
I remember that Ed Sullivan would always say, “And now, something for the kiddies.” – and I was insulted by that! LOL! But I couldn’t wait to see who it was if I didn’t hear it announced the week before. It was like opening a present every Sunday night! Whenever Herman’s Hermits was announced, I tried not to overreact in front of my family – esp. my dad, who didn’t like any form of “long-haired rock n roll”, but my heart would pound, and I listened intently to every word, every note, and watched every movement and facial expression! When it was over, I felt just like I do after a concert now – I was on cloud 9! I was in “Bye, Bye Birdie” my sophomore year of college, and even then, I thought of you when we did the song “Ed Sullivan”. LOL!
Very cute memory, Rosalyn! Growing up, my parents only listened to classical music; though I must say they were quite tolerant every Sunday evening as I squealed through the Ed Sullivan show (my Dad really got a kick out of “‘Enery”) . . . . they even, years later, came to appreciate The Beatles’ musical output (my Dad, late in life, tuning in, every Sunday, to “Breakfast With The Beatles”) . . . . maybe it brought back memories of younger years!
Ok, you’ve got me . . . . I totally wasn’t going to respond to this post; but, WHO is Nipper and WHAT is he know for nipping at (something pretty interesting, I hope)???
Also, regarding your temporarily canceled Noonefest . . . . I really didn’t think Branson, MO was your style (at least I was hoping it wasn’t)!! Maybe you could find a venue nice and centrally located . . . . say, in Atlanta????
Since you’re not rushing to spill the beans and enlighten me . . . . I remember the RCA dog was named “Nipper” . . . . . does this guy’s nickname have anything to do with his employment???
That very latest Insta-pic you’ve posted is the best by far!! Its obvious that you’ve inherited your slightly off-kilter sense of humor!!
Ed Sullivan with Herman’s Hermits, what fun!
Ladies and Gentleman…the ‘ermits!!!!
Nice pic of Herman and…Billy’s dad? :)
I wonder what the other variety acts were that night?
I so remember the days of black and white TV….heck, I was so glad that we had a tv period. Those were the days…..when I could tell you what was on TV every night of the week and we only had 4 channels. I most certainly would sit in front of that TV on Sunday nights to watch one of my favorites, the Ed Sullivan Show. I so enjoyed watching all of the groups including HH perform. I don’t think that time(when music was fab) can ever be repeated. But you help bring back those precious memories for us and I thank you for that.
I also used to watch The Ed Sullivan show on our black and white t.v. Nothing wrong with some black and white memories, is there?
I could hardly wait for Ed Sullivan show to come on Sunday nights cos it always meant that my FAV group might be on – Herman’s Hermits & their adorable leader Herman! You’re still adorable & your group is still my FAV!!!
You were quite young and cute in black & white :-). I read “Sundays With Sullivan” a while back. He was very cultured and loved classical music, particularly opera. And Herman’s Hermits ;-)
I remember the Ed Sullivan show. Talk about the blast from the past. I watched it every Sunday night.
I lucked out one day and taped you singing Mrs. Brown on Ed Sullivan! (which is why I can never erase any of my tapes)
Since this was live TV, were you given any instructions such as where to look for the cameras, or what to say or perhaps not say to Mr. Sullivan when he interviewed you?
Alas the Ed Sullivan Show! Live entertainment! Or at least thats what I thought it was back then. I do remember a nice young lad named Herman and some guys called the Hermits singing to me on the Sunday nite show. :-) Thank you so much Peter for making us all feel special!!
I remember sitting on the livingroom floor, watching this show……..think I was about 5 inches from the screen…. :)
Don’t you mean Peter Herman Moon?? Can you share some of your black and white memories with us – we love to hear your stories!!!
