Product Description

The jokes may be corny and the content squeaky clean, but it's hard to resist the toothy charms of Donnie & Marie. (When Donnie gets a call on his loafer phone, Marie quips, "That's shoe business!") No matter how crazy the characters (Captain Purple and Wonderful Woman), tacky the outfits (heavy on the rhinestones, feathers, and gold lamé), or incredible the situations (Donnie on stilts), the brother-sister duo always look like they wouldn't want to be anywhere else. Though this collection focuses on only four episodes, it does cover every year of the popular Sid and Marty Krofft-produced variety series (1976-1979). Since Marie was "a little bit country" and Donnie "a little bit rock and roll," each installment features selections from both genres--although "rock and roll" usually means R&B and disco--along with giggly sketches and skating from the Vegas-style Ice Vanities. Musical selections include "Jive Talkin'," "Yakety Yak," "I'm Your Puppet," "Dance to the Music," and "Good Day Sunshine." Guests include Charo, Paul Lynde, Ruth Buzzi, Bob Hope, Cheryl Ladd, Carl Reiner (as Carmen Miranda), and Minnie Pearl (as Shirley Temple). While the cavity-prone should steer clear of this sugary flashback, for the rest of the viewing audience, Donnie & Marie offers boundless enthusiasm, supreme silliness, and the widest smiles of the 1970s (next to Jimmy Carter). --Kathleen C. Fennessy
