In the only episode of this series filmed in color (but probably broadcast only in black-and-white), legendary crooner Bing Crosby is guest star. Crosby joins Sinatra in performing many classic Christmas songs, among them Sinatra's version of "Mistetoe and Holly" and Crosby's famed "White Christmas". Some of the songs are performed on a set with a backdrop of Victorian England; other songs were performed on a set that resembled a hip late-1950's bachelor apartment. This episode has been released in color on DVD. Written by
