    • The copy that I viewed ran only 24 minutes (with commercials). Most "30-minute" Shindigs with commercials run 29 minutes.
      The following songs are believed to be in the missing 5 minutes:
      Boris Karloff ("Monster Mash"); Ted Cassidy ("The Addams Family" & "The Lurch"); Jim Doval ("Bella's Bash"); the Gauchos ("Out of Sight") and the Wellingons ("Scully Gully").
