Tiny Tim was a unique musician who had 15 minutes of fame in the late 1960s. He had one hit record with an old song, “Tiptoe Through the Tulips” (1968), and appeared on Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-In. His wedding was televised on the Tonight Show. in 1969. If you didn’t live through this era, I can’t explain this to you.
He even starred in an independent horror film, Blood Harvest (1986).
