Countdown to Christmas: Christmas with Donny & Marie (1978)

 Donny & Marie's 3rd and final Christmas show, taped in their home state of Utah, is literally a family affair. By this point in the series, Donny had gotten married, and wife Debbie is among the guests.

I've mentioned in the past that the siblings were the physical models for the Super Friends' proteges, the Wonder Twins. Well, that ain't all. DC's The Unexpected took a left handed swipe at the Osmonds in a short story during the final season, and the artist clearly modeled his central characters after Donny & Marie, even though they had blonde hair. I'm not making this up.

No rating. Just a public service.
