'Surfin' Safari' (1962)

This early TV appearance is remarkable. Check out the stain on Brian's pants. What's up with that wacky set? Carl Wilson is 15 here, and David Marks is just 13. This was shot during the brief time period that Al Jardine wasn't in the band. He would rejoin in 1963, and for a brief time the band toured as a six-piece.
