Heeeere’s Johnny on iTunes!

For the first time, content from “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson” is available for digital download.

Starting Tuesday, two volumes of material from the King of Late Night can be purchased from the iTunes store.

A compilation edition (priced at $14.99) includes highlights from the 1960s through Carson’s emotional farewell show and his memorable next-to-last show with guest Bette Midler, which aired in 1992.

A second volume ($19.99) features 16 “Tonight” episodes with some of Carson’s favorite guests, including Don Rickles, Jay Leno, Steve Martin, Jerry Seinfeld, Betty White, David Letterman and Ellen DeGeneres in one of her first TV appearances.

Roughly half the material has never been available before in any form of home video, said Jeff Sotzing, president of Carson Entertainment Group, which is releasing the nearly 15 hours collection.

In addition, a selection of 50 “Tonight”-derived alert tones (with such signature catchphrases as “Here’s Johnny!”, “Hi-yo!” and “We’ll be right back”) will be available for 99 cents each.

This online release follows the digitization of 4,500 hours of “Tonight” hosted by Carson during his 30-year run on NBC.
