This public service short for U.S. Savings Bonds starts out with Rowan and Martin arriving at a TV studio, ostensibly to host a show. It turns out that trumpet player Herb Alpert is the only other performer listed in the credits who is actually there in person. The others appear in clips, some from their own U.S. Savings Bonds spots, others from unidentified movie or TV appearances. Singer Barbara McNair is shown entertaining U.S. troops in Viet Nam, and the youth group The Young Americans also sings. Written by

Basically a very silly short feature to sell US Savings Bonds. The hosts of "Laugh-In" host this. They offer real lame jokes and the whole movie is much in the style of a "Laugh-In" episode--fragmented bits and pieces of people saying nonsensical things (like "Sock it to me"). None of this is even remotely funny although all the "guest stars" that pop up are kind of fun. And there is a VERY short musical number from "The Young Americans" that was kind of cool. But, all in all, I though it was just silly (if interesting).
Now, I HATE "Laugh-in" so maybe this wasn't for me. However if you love "Laugh-In" you might like this.
