Episode Summary

EDIT
Talent Show
AIRED:
During Jack's monologue about his Christmas gifts, Don interrupts with a purse found by an usher. Jayne Mansfield comes out of the audience to claim it, saying the usher grabbed it from her when she was walking past. Jayne says it's a sneaky way to get a guest star.
The Sportsmen Quartet sing and Rochester dances to "New Years in Trinidad" leading into the musical Lucky Strike ad.
Jack conducts a talent contest. First is Mel Blanc as Stanley Gropff (Jack sprays on him every time he says the man's name) who performs animal impressions. Next is phony "The Landrews Sisters" trio (one regular, one sour, one fat) who sing and dance to "Did You Ever See a Dream Walking." Lastly, Leon Salvadore, a judo champ chosen by Jack. He's immediately beaten unconscious by the six big men.moreless
