Hard to think that this show was taped less than a month after JFK's assassination, which might account for a bit of down energy.
However, it's a good pre-Christmas show with some very imaginative and ambitious dance numbers. The first ends with the cast being stuffed into mail carts; while the show ends with a five-minute tap number that seems to have given Nancy Walker a heart attack.
I'm not much of an Allen and Rossi fan but I guess Garry was, since they appeared so much on his show.
Kinescope's DVD from tvdays.com has most of the opening animated sequence chopped out but the mid-show break and commercials are in. Closing credits intact, with a nifty Christmas Seals PSA tacked onto the end. May have originally been in color, as the CBS "bloodshot eye" is seen for a fraction of a second before the old standard pre-recorded logo pops in.
