Big Day In 1969 For Tiny Tim The Singer
December 17, 1969 Tiny Tim married Miss Vickie on “The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson”. Tiny Tim and Miss Vickie had a daughter, Tulip. Then in 1977 they divorced. Tiny Tim was unique even in death. He died Saturday, November 30, 1996. He died as he lived, performing “Tiptoe Through the Tulips” to an audience at a benefit in Minnesota. He cut the song short, telling his wife, that he felt ill. As he was making his way to his table — amidst the applause of his loyal fans — he collapsed, was taken to an area hospital and died without regaining consciousness.
Here’s Tiny Tim singing his hit song on the Tonight Show.
