I just got this two episode DVD of THE DANNY KAYE SHOW--Christmas episodes from 1963 (the first season) and 1966 (the fourth and final season). What a joy! I really enjoyed watching them.

Danny Kaye was an American icon - though, sadly, unknown to today's TV and movie generation. He was not only a great movie actor (who over, 60 didn't grow up thinking Has Christian Andersen looked exactly like Kaye?) and comedian, but he was one of early television's top entertainers. He could sing, dance, do comedy sketches and pronounce some of the must difficult languages - including some he actually made up! And, I'm not even mentioning all the children's charity work he did for the United Nations. He was - like jazz legend Louis Armstrong (who co-starred with Kaye in the film "The Five Pennies") - a real Ambassador!

In the 1960s Kaye had a TV variety show - a genre that really no longer exists - and luckily he was able to preserve the videotapes. They are now owned - as far as I know - by his only child, Dena and this is what I certainly hope is the first in a series of DVD releases. 2012 marks the Kaye Centenary and, just in time for Christmas comes the DVD with two shows - a black and white one from 1963 and a color broadcast from 1966 - with a Christmas theme. But there are non-holiday songs and sketches as well. The "name" guests are Peggy Lee, Wayne Newton, Nat King Cole and Mary Tyler-Moore (MTM getting a chance to show off her dancing talent too), while you'll also recognize comedy "second bananas" Harvey Korman and Jamie Farr in the supporting cast in the comedy bits.

Other reviewers here have detailed each of the songs and sketches so I won't repeat them here. And I read some "grumbling" about the quality of the color transfers. I watched on my 30 year old 27in standard aspect TV and they looked fine to me. And, besides, these tapes are 50 years old. The entertainment value is there.

I watched THE DANNY KAYE SHOW on CBS when I was a kid. It was very entertaining, and I have also enjoyed several of the late Mr. Kaye's movies, including White Christmas (Anniversary Edition) and Wonder Man [VHS], which has not yet been released on DVD - the one that Amazon lists appears to be a bootleg or a European import.

This DVD features two Christmas episodes of THE DANNY KAYE SHOW. The first one, in B&W from 1963, features The Clinger Sisters (whatever happened to them?), Mary Tyler Moore, who shows off her dancing ability in a silent-film production number, and the legendary Nat "King" Cole, who sings "Get Me To The Church On Time," and the classic "The Christmas Song (Merry Christmas To You)," a.k.a. "Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire," as well as a duet with Danny on "Jingle Bells," and a closing cast number on "Let There Be Peace on Earth." This may have been one of Nat's last TV appearances, as he was deathly sick the following Christmas, and died in February 1965.

The second episode, in color from 1966, features the late great Peggy Lee, Wayne Newton, and The International Children's Choir. Peggy sings "So What's New?," an instrumental hit for Herb Alpert And The Tijuana Brass that she added lyrics to, "Here's That Rainy Day," and duets with Danny on "Jingle Bells." Wayne performs "Jingle Bell Rock" and "Every Street's A Boulevard (In Old New York)." The Choir does "Let There Be Peace On Earth." Both episodes feature classic comedy sketches, including Danny's trademark dialects.
