Countdown to Christmas: 'Twas The Week Before Christmas (The Smothers Brothers Show, 1965)

From The Smothers Brothers Show:

Apprentice angel Tom works with the Marine Corps' Toys For Tots campaign, and Dick, as usual, has to help clean up after.

The supporting cast includes some familiar names, including Roland Winters, who was doing a good deal of TV in those days after playing Charlie Chan in the movies some years earlier, Harriet MacGibbon (The Beverly Hillbillies), and, in this episode, a pre-Brady Bunch Eve Plumb.

The Four Star banner logo was edited off this print.

I think the Smothers Brothers were, in fact, working with Toys For Tots at the time, similar to Bewitched using their Halloween episodes to shill for UNICEF.

No rating.
