The skits for this episode are as follows: The men of the cast open by performing the intro from Milton Berle's old Texaco Star Theater program. Music host Don Kirshner presents the Village Persons, who perform their new disco song "Bend Over, Chuck Berry". Joan Face interviews Irving Mainway, who attempts to defend the attractions at his new theme park, including getting stuffed in a burlap sack and thrown in a lake, riding a shopping cart down into a gravel pit, and playing in a lot full of abandoned refrigerators. Other skits include Milton Berle's Japanese writers, Buddy Pine's Launching Pad, and the Widette family. Milton Berle performs "September Song" and Ornette Coleman performs "Times Square."
