Betty WhiteThe amazing Betty White turns 92 today (Jan. 17, 2014).

White officially has the longest television career for a female entertainer, according to Guiness World Records.

People who are only familiar with the later decades of Betty White’s career might be surprised by this video from her 1954 show. She sings!

The Betty White Show is brought to you by RDX—”the safe way to lose ugly fat”—and by Geritol, “America’s #1 tonic to help you feel stronger fast.” Betty’s Geritol ad at 06:25 is reminiscent of Vitameatavegin, except it’s no joke. (“It’s good tasting, too!”)
