Cissy King had been fired from "The Lawrence Welk Show" some time in 1978, which meant there was a time when Bobby Burgess was without a regular dance partner. In this episode, Barbara Boylan, his original "Welk" partner, made an appearance, and their dance number together shows she hadn't lost a single step, despite an almost 12-year absence.
Also helping is that Bob Lido makes an appearance with the Hotsy-Totsy Boys, singing "Running Wild," which Marilyn Monroe sang in "Some Like It Hot." By this time, Mr. Lido's solo performances are rare, in direct contrast to the 1960s, when he did a number on a weekly basis.
Since this is 1979, the fashions are an atrocity, and some of the parts are cheesy enough, but Bob Lido and Barbara Boylan give this episode 9/10.
