The Lawrence Welk Show

Halloween Party (#606)

Host: Kathy and Janet Lennon
Janet and Kathy Lennon host the annual Welk Show Halloween Party, a costume extravaganza that features all your favorite Welk stars including The Lennon Sisters, Jo Ann Castle, and Larry Hooper. The two Lennon Sisters have fun talking about the way their family celebrates Halloween today. They describe how they decorate the exterior of their mother's large Victorian home and do four outdoor performances of a vaudeville-like skit, with monster and demented doctor, for neighbors and friends. You'll see all the the fun in photos and footage from a television special. On the 'Halloween Party' Welk Show, Janet, Kathy, and Peggy are joined by their two little sisters, Mimi and Annie, then 10- and 7- year-olds. Family photos show how they've grown-up and they introduced their own children. The five sisters sing 'Dry Bones' dressed as skeletons, with solos by the two very talented youngsters. The Halloween-theme songs on the show include 'That Old Black Magic,' 'Mr. Ghost Goes to Town,' 'Jeepers Creepers,' 'Whistle a Happy Tune,' 'Old Devil Moon,' and many other musical numbers creatively adapted for the occasion.
