Mary Tyler Moore

Posted by purplemary54 on January 25, 2017

Not that long ago, I posted the theme from The Mary Tyler Moore Show as interpreted by Minneapolis Punk band Husker Du.  Now I’m posting it because Mary Tyler Moore has left this plane of existence.  (I hate saying “died.”  Yes, her physical body has died, but her spirit and energy will always be a part of the Universe.)

I like this clip because it includes just a bit from the final episode.  You can here the rest of the WJM gang singing “It’s a Long Way to Tipperary” as Mary takes one last loving look at the newsroom before turning out the lights and closing the door.  It was a great good-bye then, and it’s a great one now.  So long, Mary.  I’ll be sure to laugh as hard for you as your TV namesake did for Chuckles the Clown.  (And please, jukebox listeners, for your own sakes track down the episode “Chuckles Bites the Dust” if you haven’t seen it.  You will never be sorry.)
