CAPTAIN & TENNILLE - THE CHRISTMAS SHOW (ABC 12/20/76) Toni Tennille, Daryl Dragon, Don Knotts, Tom Bosley, Pointer Sisters
Visit 1976 with this rare Christmas episode from "The Captain and Tennille" weekly variety show. Enjoy the talents of Daryl Dragon and Toni Tennille in everything from the romantic ballad "Wedding Song (There is Love)" to the outrageously costumed, heavily choreographed, intricately arranged favorite "Jingle Bells" and the very stylized, dreamy rendition of "How Can I Be Sure."
Guest stars Tom Bosley (Happy Days) and funnyman Don Knotts ("The Andy Griffith Show", "Three’s Company) offer comic relief while the singing talents of guests the Pointer Sisters and Tennille Sisters provide an added layer of musical richness and depth. Especially notable are the Pointer Sisters' Count Basie Medley, the Tennille Sisters' harmonically complex performance of the Beach Boys' "Little Saint Nick," and Daryl's piano performance of the "March of the Wooden Soldiers" from Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Ballet.
