That's right - it was their last Ed Sullivan appearance on September 24, 1967 where they announced they were sailing to England. They performed "Twelve Thirty" and a medley of their hits ("Monday, Monday", "I Call Your Name" and "California Dreamin'").

Yes, I remember watching that show when it was first broadcast - 12:30 was sung earlier in the show, then the medley with the elaborate sets and costumes later.

I also remember that on the show broadcast the week before, Ed Sullivan had announced that the Mamas and Papas would be presenting their "farewell to show business" on the next week's show. I was shocked....
