Enjoy this fun filled DVD featuring The Ed Sullivan Show mouse Topo Gigio. This Topo Gigio DVD includes all of the best appearances by the little Italian mouse and is perfect for the whole family.
Every week, America tuned into “The Ed Sullivan Show” and every week, the TV audience was charmed by the antics of the adorable mouse, Topo Gigio. Created by a highly creative troupe of puppeteers, it took four people to bring the 10″ tall character to life, three to manipulate him and one to create his sweet voice.
Appearing over 50 times, the little Italian mouse would appear on stage and greet Ed with a sugary “Hello Eddie!”. Topo also was quite the lover, often speaking of his girlfriend “Rosie”, but the enduring image is how Topo ended his weekly visits, literally crooning to Ed, “Keesa me goo’night, Eddie”
Topo Gigio closed the final “Ed Sullivan Show” in 1971, but his success wasn’t limited to his airtime with Ed. The character was introduced in South America, Spain and in Japan, which spawned a successful Japanese animated series. There was also a feature film released in 1965 entitled “The Magic World of Topo Gigio” and Topo continues, to this day, as a well-known character in mainstay of Italian and Spanish speaking territories. He is also “the spokes-mouse” for the United Nations.
