Ahhh, to be 5 again.
21 November 2001 | by (Texas, USA) – See all my reviews

I had almost forgotten this show even existed until I stumbled across its listing on IMDb. I liked it in 1979 when it was popular. That was due in large part to the fact that I was 5. Two things about the show I remember vividly:

1) At some point in just about every number the female member of the couple that happened to be dancing at the time would do a twirl while her male counterpart would hold onto her skirt, executing a "disrobe-a-swirl" leaving her dancing in nothing but a leotard.

2) The other thing I remember most about the show was the number in which a pair danced to the disco version of the "Star Wars" theme while wearing gold and silver polyester suits with matching gold and silver afro wigs. So much for their political careers but it gave me something to be happy about when I was a kid.
