It was 30 years ago today, when Johnny Carson punk'd David Letterman by stealing his truck and bringing it to the studio for all to see. In honor of the anniversary of this great prank, we bring you the full segment of David Letterman's Truck unveiling on our YouTube channel. If you'd like to see more of this classic episode a large potion of this show as well as the mock trial with David Letterman and Judge Wapner from June 27, 1986 are included on the Tonight - 15 DVD collection. A great collection that features 4 decades of The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson plus some great bonus footage with guests remembering Johnny. Check it out.

    Those were priceless moments!! David had no idea what was going on. Johnny was a master practical joker. I saw those clips before. I hope Antenna tv will show both of these shows soon! Also want both of these shows re released in their entirety on dvd or download please!! They only showed about 27 minutes to half hour. I want to see the whole show, original commercials and all! Thanks.
