I liked pint-sized commercial pitchman Mason Reese when I was a kid, and after seeing this old video of Mason interviewing Leonard Nimoy about Star Trek, I like him even more.
Here's another video of Mason bursting into tears when he realizes that Harry Chapin is about to perform "Cat's in the Cradle" on The Mike Douglas Show.
Mason has been uploading his TV appearances to YouTube. Catch them here.
