Angie and Danny: The Danny Kaye Show

Oh!  I'm so excited!  I have seen this episode of the Danny Kaye show many times at the TV Museum officially known as the Paley Center for Media and now some wonderful person has finally uploaded them to youtube.

The Danny Kaye Show ran for 59 episodes from 1963 through 1967 and was a variety show with lots of low comedy sketches and a little song and dance.  Harvey Korman was a featured regular and numerous guests were on the show every week.  

My favorite episode, no surprise, is the one in which Angela Lansbury guest starred in 1964.  I love that she gets the chance to show of her comedic skills in two skits and some really high kicks in a riot of a dance number with Danny (and this is pre-MAME).

Love. It. Why is this still not airing?! These variety shows are killer.

All the producers of "Mame" needed was to watch this instead of putting her through the ringer.

Kicking higher than the chorines - that's our Angie!!!

Terrific find, Lady Iris.
