  • Episode Description
  • Jack talks about raising the standards of television programming, so he's staging a condensed version of the opera The Mikado. Rather than singing the Japanese love song that's planned, Dennis is determined to do an Irish jig. Don has his son Harlow, who's been taking elocution lessons, do the State Farm commercial. In the sketch, Jack is the Lord High Executioner with Dennis as Nanki-Poo, disguised as a minstrel. The "classy" production falls apart when Dennis does his jig dance.moreless

    • The Mikado sketch was originally staged on the episode The Mikado that aired 12/16/1956. In that version, Dennis didn't do a jig, but an Elvis Presley impersonation.
