Oprah Meets "Official Groundhog" Punxsutawney Phil

Aired on 07/06/1995 | CC tv-pg
Punxsutawney Phil is easily one of the most recognized weathermen in the world. For more than 120 years, the legendary groundhog has poked his head out of his Gobbler's Knob home every February 2. If he sees his shadow and goes back inside, we will have six additional weeks of winter weather. If he doesn't see his shadow, we'll have an early spring.

While Phil's accuracy is questionable, his stage presence is beyond reproach. Watch as Oprah sits down with the prognosticating groundhog and his top-hat-wearing keeper, Bill Deeley, for a conversation about their town's peculiar ritual.
