I am lucky enough to have the entire series on DVD which was transferred from VHS tapes. This show was on when I was in high school and we never missed. It is so good to see these shows again with the commercials!!! These were taped off a set in Pensacola, FL, as the 'station identifications' note. A few impressions...I'm amazed that a show like this could be put together every week. There is an amazing segment on the show with Sammy Davis, Jr. in which they do a medley of 7 or 8 Broadway show numbers, all with different sets and costumes, this takes up one entire segment of the show! I've also decided that Julie Andrews and Harry Belafonte should have had children. What beauties those would have been. I was amazed again at the beautiful, rich blend of the voices of Andrews and Cass Elliot. Probably my favorite episode of all was the one with Robert Goulet (who had a finer voice than this man in his prime?) and Joel Grey.
