Uncle Miltie,

That's how Dad and I remember you from TV back in the 1950's.

I still recall reading about your story as a kid from back in the Vaudeville days in New York. It was when your beloved Mom coerced you into starting your number by walking on stage with the wrong foot.

The purpose of course was for you to gain more attention from the audience, as embarrasing as it must have been for you.

And the ensueing mess worked in your favor in the long run.

How great it would have been to hear the story directly from you in person.

Anyway, Keep em laughing up there.

God Bless,
Joe Lopez

I JUST BEGAN STARTIME, THE FAMOUS CHILDRENS' STUDIO AROUND THE CORNER FROM WHAT NOW IS THE ED SULLIVAN THEATRE,WHEN I AND FOUR OTHER YOUNGSTERS WERE SELECTED TO APPEAR ON THE TUESDAY NIGHT TEXACO SHOW. IT WAS MAY 1954 AND DAVY CROCKETT WAS A BIG HIT. THE SINGER WHO MADE IT FAMOUS WAS RECIVING A GOLD RECORD ON THE PROGRAM AND THE CHILDREN WHO WERE SENT FROM STARTIME WORE DAVY CROCKETT OUTFITS AND SAT AROUND HIM AS HE SANG THE SONG. BILLED ON THE SHOW THAT EVENING WAS PREZ PRADO (CHERRY PINK AND APPLE BLOSSOM WHITE), THE HARMONICATS, ARNOLD STANG AND PETER LAWFORD. I CAN VIVIDLY REMEMBER MEETING UNCLE MILTIE DURING REHEARSAL. HE HAD A TOWEL AROUND HIS NECK AND A PREMIUM CIGAR TIGHTLY AFFIXED BETWEEN HIS TEETH AS HE PREPARED FOR THE LIVE PRODUCTION JUST A FEW HOURS AWAY. HE WAS AFFABLE AND FUNNY AND LEFT ME WITH A LASTING IMPRESSION OF RESPECT AND ADMIRATION FOR THE GREATEST ORIGINAL PIONEER IN TV HISTORY. HIS THEME SONG WAS "NEAR YOU" AND I'M PROUD TO SAY I WAS NEAR YOU UNCLE MILTIE WHEN I APPEARED ON YOUR SHOW IN 1954!

To "Uncle Miltie"--
A great man who had to courage to have Elvis on your show at a time when that was not "socially aceptable"..yet entertaining to us little kids who loved "Miltie" and the hound dog Elvis was singing to.
Now you are joined with great company in your buddy Bob Hope. May you enjoy cracking jokes together from heaven and making the world smile down here.
What a great fellow..Hope you are getting high ratings in heaven.
Best wishes!

The first I ever saw of Milton was on "I Love Lucy" re-runs. I have enjoyed his work ever since.

I did not have the opportunity to see Milton's original comedy acts. But I have enjoyed re-runs with my father and listening to his memories of the first time he enjoyed them. It made it even more special and fun to share the experience. I enjoyed all his work.
