Michael Landon Final Tonight Show Appearance

In April 1991, TV icon Michael Landon was diagnosed with inoperable pancreatic cancer. A month later, on May 9, 1991, Landon was in high spirits when he made a guest appearance on The Tonight Show. He died seven weeks later at the age of 54. I apologize for the poor quality of the clip, but it’s worth watching.

  1. This is not nice. I met Michael “Little Joe” Landon in the summer of 1965 and will always cherish the memory.
    But coming here and seeing the hype – and then being informed the video was unavailable – well, it’s just sad.
    Michael is no longer available either, but he’s gone on to a better place. He rides the Ponderosa each day with the youth and athleticism he once owned in this realm. Ride em Joe! And make sure you’re home for dinner. I hear Hop Sing has some ribeyes coming off the grill!
