"There's No Place Like Home For The Holidays" sets the mood for this holiday show. Guy & Ralna sing the touching "A House With Love In It", Joe Feeney reminds us to "Be Thankful", and Ken Delo and Arthur Duncan team up for a rare song & dance on "Back In Your Own Backyard". Bob Lido and the Hotsy Totsy Boys lead the group in a fun filled "Baby Face" and "We Gather Together" sets a perfect mood for the Thanksgiving feast to follow.

Tribute to Disney (Episode #1308)
KQED Plus: Sat, Nov 3, 2012 -- 7:00 PM
This show is a delight from start to finish, with outstanding costumes and sets, plus the emotional return of Larry Hooper after a long illness. Larry sings appropriately enough, "Oh Happy Day." Other highlights include "It's A Small World", Bobby & Cissy dancing to the "Mickey Mouse Mambo", and Norma Zimmer singing a lovely "When You Wish Upon A Star". Ken Delo sings about the "Big Bad Wolf" to his pretty daughter, Kimberly, and Lawrence dances to "The Waltz of the Flowers" with Cissy King.
