Storyline

Country music superstar Barbara Mandrell hosted this Sid and Marty Krofft-produced music-variety series with her younger sisters, Louise and Irelene. Also helping out was Truck Shackley & the Texas Critters, a group of Krofft puppets that included five musicians and a dog. While most of the show's material centered on comedy sketches (including a regular play depicting the sisters' youths), the meat of the show remained rooted in country music. Each week, a well-established country star (e.g., Dolly Parton, Larry Gatlin, Charley Pride, the Statler Brothers and Marty Robbins) and an up-and-coming act of the era (including later superstar acts Alabama, Ricky Skaggs and Steve Wariner) made appearances, playing their biggest and current hits. The show played off the success of Barbara Mandrell's fast-exploding country career, which included sell-out concerts and a string of No. 1 hits (most notably, "Sleeping Single in a Double Bed" and "I Was Country When Country Wasn't Cool"); in fact, ...

Not a too bad of a show....
16 December 2005 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

Was never into country music and still not into country, but I liked this show. I used to watch it all the time when I was little and really enjoyed it. Thought Barbara and her sisters were pretty decent singers and the skits were funny and cute....etc.... Just a good family show, that my parents didn't have to worry about me watching. Sure the show was on the corny side, but all in all, it was fun to watch. Did manage to catch a few several years ago when the reruns were being aired, and I found I still enjoyed watching the show. Would love to see this on DVD someday. It's been so long since I've watched the show, I can't remember particular shows except maybe a Christmas one????
