Storyline

Benny starts off with a song involving a hippie and a suitcase on a train, and then shows us examples of what he calls "Look #7"; a dance involving masks at a boutique; another set of examples of things that go wrong on television, including the now-famous Shakespearean blooper with Hill as Romeo (and Rona Newton-John as Juliet); TV executive Fred Scuttle introduces "The Underworld Water of Jacques Custard"; the first appearance of Chow Mein in "East Meets West"; and a reading of the poem "Ted." Also: Los Zafiros performs "Maria Isabel," Two's Company sing "Try To Remember," and both groups join Benny on "José's Cantina." Written by W.B.
