Barbara Walters officially announced her retirement on "The View" yesterday. She said, "I have been on television continually for over 50 years, but in the summer of 2014 I plan to retire from appearing on television at all."

In honor of Barbara's retirement, NBC posted a video from 1962, in which Barbara spent a day as a Bunny at the Playboy Club in New York City. That was 51 years ago, meaning Barbara was 32.  She's 83 now.

Check it out here:  (I love the end, when she's back at the newsroom with Hugh Downs.  He's doing some pretty hardcore flirting.  He even ends the segment by saying, quote, "I enjoyed seeing you as a bunny.")
