Bored.In.California : I'm sure David Letterman thinks very highly of himself and doesn't realize that we want to see more of the old guy's stuff rather than hear the host talk.

Johnny Trever : wow this guy never shuts up, just let the man show his artwork

batwimp : Nobody seemed less interested in his guests than David Letterman.

ronniegeorge10 : The disrespect Letterman shows his guests is staggering

Third Herd : I'm sure he has sadly passed on now; but what a sweet, adorable old man!

Mike Patton : "It's an empty wallet and I have no trouble getting these". Best line of the video.

God Of Rainbows : Thanks Dave for your dismissive attitude and ruining the guys ending fire and wind effect. Why have the guy on if your just going to shit on him

Lucifag : "We have about half a minute left, so this next one'll be the last." Proceeds to continuously talk through his guest.

daniel de lewis : I never realize how obnoxious David Letterman is

Art Smith : I never understood why people liked Letterman.

John Province : 100 years from now Jimmy's work will still be enjoyed. Letterman will be unknown. Laugh that off wise guy.

WeareSouledOut : would had been nice if dave would shut up for a few seconds

Bradley S. : Ask him to hurry... And then kills the last sound effect by continuing to talk over the man... Why do so many hosts do that???

Spencer Frank Clayton : Annoying David, the fire didn't kill Bambi's mother, the hunter did!!

trycoldman23 : Wow the comment section seems to have a "Letterman is annoying" fanclub *Where do I sign up?*

Kevin Kral : Goodbye and good riddance to David Letterman. Supremely obnoxious and unfunny, and now consigned to a richly-deserved obscurity. I pity the citizens of Choteau, Montana.

Evil Sean : letterman ... stfu and let the genius show a tiny bit of his soul i know its the letterman show but jeez...just every 4 or 5 blue moons let someone else shine

Gator Mckluskey : This is true on so many shows, it's like let's bring out this interesting guest and give him 90 seconds to demonstrate his craft and I will try to stop him every 2 seconds. WTF?

Master Shadow : “We have uh.. about a half a minute, let’s do the uh.. I guess this would be the last of the ones, here” *proceeds to waste over a full minute talking over the guy and making jokes about everything he tries to do*

Natznatz : old school Disney was magic. I miss it so much

Dan L : "And this is the sound of an obnoxious TV Host's head being slammed repeatedly into a table"

Robert McCarthy : I never got David Letterman. I never found him to be an interesting person at all at all. He seems a very minimal intelligent, and it really stupid Choice as an interviewer, he had no idea what to ask, you put a stupid person to interview a smart person, equals guaranteed crappy results. he wasn't very funny, I always thought he was incredibly painful is stupid. But then people would sit there and a plug, maybe think what the hell's going on. People have no IQ?. Then they gave him his own building, made a very bad feedback on the average person's IQ and mentality. He admits himself he screwed up about 80% of the jokes and taglines.

tone wheel : The guest was a true gentleman and demonstrated his skills well, where as, Letterman was a complete blow hard and should have been the sound effect for the wind. I`m glad he`s gone.

fishon catch em : Letterman is a tool .

The_ Joker : As a point of interest and respect Jimmy McDonald (Mickey Mouse) was a Foley artist, animator, voice actor, musician & original head of Disney sound effects department. (Mickey mouse, Dumbo, Lady & the tramp, Snow White etc Google him in 500 yrs he will still be known for these classics and his unequaled input. As for the talentless idiot on Jimmy’s right...... It just pisses me off when an immeasurably and future proofed talented man like Jimmy McDonald gets overlooked and interviewed by an immensely rude and useless interviewer like letterman! Comedy! Letterman couldn’t spell the word.

Greg Edmonds : At least you could give the guy’s name. This is Disney sound effects legend John James McDonald.

Andrew Cox : What a talented man he was... incredible inventor too

Sherry Mathew : Carson was the most polite host I had ever seen. Assholes like Letterman just don't cut it.

Dubble Bouble : I'm purdy damn sure that a hunter killed Bambi's mom, not the fire

pegbars : This clip only reminds me why I stopped watching this clown in the 80s... he never let his guests SPEAK or do what they were there to do. Letterman can't keep his mouth shut long enough.

Tony Goldmark : I remember they used this clip as the pre-show of the Monster Sound Show at Disney World for a while.

RSLindsay : His name was Jim MacDonald. He was also the voice of Mickey Mouse after Walt Disney turned the role over to him.

Leo Berger : My god what Letterman is in the way

Danny Gantz : honestly hope the host is dead.....

Skippy the Magnificent : Letterman was lucky all his sexual impropriety came out before the #MeToo movement, otherwise he would have been vilified just as hard as Harvey Weinstein or Kevin Spacey.

petermaxx1 : Letterman is a cynical misanthrope - after eight weeks of watching his depressing program, I gave up on talk shows altogether

idlehands1111111111 : Pretty happy letterman is a dissapating name now

Michael Gabriel : lettermans the idiot in this video he should k=just let the man do his thing ... goofy

RedoranGuard's-SkyrimBattles : I came here to hear sound effects DAMN IT!!!

Ron Wylie : What a wonderful man, it's was a disgrace he had to rush him off, how many guests entertain any better than him.

Twiglet : David Lettemspeak

Pixel - CSGO & more : Is that stan lee?

Ryan Mowforth : Shame Letterman had to steal this guys limelight

Dankuz M33mus Maximus : 1:44 This guy got some skills

Jack : Just shut up and let the man do his thing. This is a lost art. Let him pass it on >:-(

Justin Williams : There are so many sound effects even in movies that are NOT animated. The persons who do this are called "Foley artists" and they enhance all kinds of sounds, like footprints, rain, birds, animals, and insects.

Miss Sarah Winterbottom : I can't understand how David Letterman ever became a TV personality when didn't have any personality,!!

Daehawk : Foley artist still do these same effects today. In face almost every sound you hear in a movie that is not a voice are foley artist using objects and themselves to create all those sounds

Andrew Vickers : In this day and age where pre-made SFX are utilized in modern movies and television or are recorded live on set, it's easy to forget there were _people_ like James/Jimmy McDonald who made their sound effects and used contraptions to achieve those sounds.

Graham Nichols : Letterman treated the guests as if they were dummies, which they were not. He did the same to the viewing and studio audience. Whenever David said something 'funny' the house band had to make sound effects as if to say 'this is the stuff for you to laugh at dummies - do it NOW'. Highly disrespectful. I felt for Jimmy. Seemed like a great, interesting, guy.
