Johnny Morris a very funny man

A Funny Thing Happened

By Chris Elliott

When I went into Facebook today, I was amused by a link by a friend showing a BBC video on Youtube. Watching this video brought back many happy memories of my younger years when I would watch Johnny Morris the TV presenter and animal lover.

I even used to amuse my late wife by mimicking Johnny’s art of giving animals voices. It really was so funny.

The new video I watched via Facebook is as below:

Looking back with many fond memories, I also found these videos featuring the late Johnny Morris. Please watch them and I hope your find them to be enjoyable and perhaps you will find some more Johnny Morris videos to watch on Youtube.

Johnny Morris an animal lover and great entertainer.

Listen to Terry Nutkins talking about those early days making shows with Johnny Morris by clicking on the link below for an BBC iplayer sound track which is also most enjoyable.
