In summer 1969, Disneyland Entertainment produced Disneyland's Tomorrowland (outdoor) Summer nightly variety show, a three-month-long variety show with groups booked for 4 weeks at a time. The show was staged three times a night, with the first show at 7, to encourage park guests to stay in the park after dark. In June 1969, the Osmond Brothers appeared for a four-week engagement.See more »

Purple Socks and Sparkling Teeth, 14 December 2000
Author: hillari from Chicago, USA

Donny and Marie Osmond were the first brother and sister to host a variety show. Critics picked on the duo the whole time they were on the air. It wasn't great art, but it was fun, wholesome entertainment for an hour on Friday nights. Donny and Marie, like all variety shows, was expensive to put on every week, and that, along with changing tastes, eventually drove the show off the airwaves. Sometimes Nick-At-Nite will show reruns of it.
