Editorial Reviews

LOVE HAS KEPT THEM TOGETHER! In 1976, Toni Tennille and Daryl Dragon hosted their own ABC-TV variety series - the CAPTAIN & TENNILLE show, a mix of music, comedy and guest stars. Only running one year, the duo opted out of another season as they felt somewhat torn between doing a weekly TV show and their recording career. Being accomplished musicians first and foremost, the show ended. Dick Clark took over the production for the last half of the season, which meant more C&T music as well as a diverse list of musical guests. Now, nearly 30 years since it originally aired, Captain & Tennille can do that to you one more time...this time on DVD!

DISC 1 begins with the first show from September 1976. Also included are C&T song favorites LONELY NIGHT and SHOP AROUND, plus Toni duets with John Travolta! Featured guests Penny Marshall, Bob Hope, Ron Howard, Leonard Nimoy and Andy Griffith add to the mix. Did we mention the Bionic Watermelon or Masterjoke Theatre?

DISC 2 - It's 1977 and the Captain & Tennille perform tributes to Neil Sedaka, Stevie Wonder, Elton John and the Carpenters. TV’s original Charlie’s Angels drop by, as do Tony Randall, Ed McMahon, The Sylvers, Jim Stafford, Muhammad Ali and other special guests. Heard any good HAT JOKES lately?

DISC 3 features some production numbers…and Toni just CAN'T STOP DANCIN’! Other music highlights include guests Ann & Nancy Wilson in HEART, David Gates and BREAD, RUFUS with Chaka Khan and an amazing duet featuring Toni with Dionne Warwick. Special appearances by Don Knotts, Vincent Price and George Burns round out the classic variety lineup. EXTRAS: Some fun bonus material, including Captain & Tennille’s national TV debut on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, more C&T performances, a little Broddy Bounce, a few Muskrat sightings and other surprises! It's like Captain & Tennille never really said goodbye!

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful entertainment awaits you here November 26, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Beautifully packaged 3 DVD set of the 76-77 series "The Captain and Tennille" is a joy to behold. The show has a magical quality about it an though somewhat dated in spots, still remains as entertaining today as it was back then. What a collection of guest stars: John Travolta, Redd Foxx, Tony Randall, Bob Hope, Jackie Gleason, "Charlie's Angels"(Kate, Farrah, and Jaclyn), The "Happy Days" cast, Penny Marshall, Leonard Nemoy, Muhammad Ali, and many, many more. Remember "The Bionic Watermelon"?, The endless hat jokes?, the great music? If you have a fondness for the seventies, or if you want to enrich the lives of your children, pick this set up, pop the discs in and enjoy. We need this kind of entertainment in our lives today. Thank You R2 entertainment, keep the good times coming-you've made my whole DVD collection a bit brighter.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as bad as you would think... January 2, 2006
Format:DVD
I was 10 years old when this show originally aired and feared that it would be so bad I wouldn't be able to take it 3 decades down the line. But my curiosity wouldn't keep me from getting this set to watch it again. The first episode is as bad as I expected but it surprisingly gets better as the series goes on. The 1977 episodes have more emphasis on music and less comedy skits and are the reason the show continued to improve. It's fun to see performances by many of the pop stars of the time like Marilyn McCoo/Billy Davis, Heart, Leo Sayer, The Sylvers, Bread, and England Dan & John Ford Coley, although only McCoo/Davis refrain from lip-synching. The performances featuring Louisa and Melissa Tennille are also very enjoyable. I remember having a thing for Melissa when I was 10. I thought she was pretty hot!

The comedy mostly ranges from semi humorous to very bad but there are a few laughs along the way, mostly involving the ongoing "Masterjoke Theater" skits. The pie fight on the season finale was predictable but fun to watch.

Mostly it's just fun to watch the Captain & Tennille perform, particulary when doing songs from their own albums.

I was disappointed to find that the performance of "Mind Your Love" was not included on the C&T jukebox though. It was the one performance from the show that I still retained a vivid memory of and I was looking forward to seeing it again. It was always one of my favorite C&T songs.

It's a good set though -- full of fun, memories and good tunes. Anyone who enjoys the goofiness that was the 70s television variety show will really enjoy this collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars CAPTAIN & TENNILLE RULE! Who Knew!?! December 9, 2005
Format:DVD
For years I've longed to see episodes of THE CAPTAIN & TENNILLE again as it was one of my many cherished childhood memories, but I have to admit I was a bit worried that seeing it again would ruin the memories. Unlike the bad experiences of re-viewing 1978's atrocious `Star Wars Holiday Special' and `Legend of the Super Heroes', seeing THE CAPTAIN & TENNILLE again was a wonderful delight! I watched all 11 episodes and the delicious extras in less than 2 days. Anyone who had a fondness for this pop duo should not miss this excellent boxed set.

THE SONNY & CHER SHOW set the format for all 1970's variety programs, and THE CAPTAIN & TENNILLE falls into line perfectly. Sure, the comedy bits are dated and not really all that funny (were they ever on these variety shows?) but on THE CAPTAIN & TENNILLE the comedy pieces are quick and to the point. Many other variety series belabored the ill fated comedy sketches and let them drag on far too long. This one doesn't. The main focus on THE CAPTAIN & TENNILLE is the music. And what music it is! Many consider the music of the 1970's to be lightweight and weak, but how can anyone argue how well crafted these songs are? It may not be raw rock & roll, but it is perfect pop music. Toni Tennille has an amazing voice and seems capable of performing just about anything. Watching her belt out the tunes (from 1940's standards to 1970's ballads and pop classics) and dancing up a storm, one can only wonder how she did not become a huge Broadway star (oh, how I would have loved to have seen her in the touring company for `Victor / Victoria' back in 1995). She's an incredible talent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Captain And Tennille DVD November 23, 2005
By shane
Format:DVD
I got this DVD at Tower Records in Hollywood(the 1st one at 12:00!!) rushed home and played it. Toni Tennille's hair deserves to have third billing(the first two shows I could've stop looking at it!...I've never seen a hairstyle so match a face....)You'll love this dvd if you love real musicians(both are clasically trained) and Toni's showmanship carry the show. Between her contagious energy and Daryl's arrangements it was easy to watch all 9 hrs. in a sitting. I mean, think of it, only the year before,1975, they had their first big hit, Love Will Keep Us Together, and did such an outstanding job on that song(the #1 song of '75....smack dab in the middle of the 70's)that it luanched them into worldwide stardom, and their own show.Amazing what one good song/arrangement can do for a carear!Toni Tennille's smile is pure sunshine, and her nuclear energy is enough to light 100 New York City's.The sketches show the times..BUT, the music is timeless!! and still sounds great. On disc three,the bonus is a big one...it's their first national appearance on television on Johnny Carson...they sang Love Will Keep Us Together and Honey Come Love Me...just the two of them and a drummer....it was interesting to hear Johnny say that they'll be appearing at Knott's Berry Farm that June...and that,"...I have a feeling those two are going to go places!" how right he was.. As for the corniness of the sketches, you just sort of have to surrender to the 70's....back to when we all weren't so sophisticated and educated by talk shows, and it's actually are beautiful observation of what a different world and different pace the world was in. I found myself, after watching them for hours, going about my day more cheerful..eagar to love and laugh...maybe carrying some of the innocence of the 70's inside me. Thanks to them, and the people who put this dvd out for the absalute joy it brought me!...Now,where's the Live dvd from the Greek Theater??...will be watching for it!
