A grandmother saves up her pennies and goes on a tour of TV studio, and her dream of interacting with show business personalities comes true!
Did You Know?
This show and its companions, "The Toy Pony" (1974), "Rose on Broadway" (1978), and "Imagine That" (1979) were vanity projects financed by Dora Hall
's husband Leo Hulseman, the founder and president of the disposable cup manufacturer, Solo Cup Co. The programs were syndicated as TV "specials" and designed to showcase Hall's virtuosity as an entertainer. In "Once Upon a Tour" and "Rose on Broadway," for example, Dora Hall - a grandmother in her 70's with limited show business experience - sings, dances, and swaps jokes with her celebrity guests. The specials were a spin-off from the vanity sound recordings waxed by Dora Hall in the 1960s and distributed free (through mail-in offers) along with the cups and paper plates Solo Cup manufactured.
