Two installments from near the end of the run of Tennessee Ernie Ford's daytime ABC musical/comedy series from the mid-1960's, featuring future DATING GAME host Jim Lang as one of the supporting players. The first show, from February 1965, features Ford singing "I Can't Stop Loving You," and--joined by his two lady support singers--performing "Personality." Ethel Ennis is the guest star, singing "The Boy From Ipanema." Sponsor commercials include Lysol, Clairol's Loving Care Hair Color Lotion, Metrical, and Action chlorine bleach (the famous ad featuring the big, muscular hand popping out of the top-loading washer), Rose Lotion Vel, and the Colgate Palmolive Pot of Gold sweepstakes.
The second show features Phil Ford and Mimi Hines as guests, and the song "You're Nobody Till Somebody Loves You." Comedy includes some examples of zany Valentine's Day cards. Cathy from the regular cast sings a very funny version of "The Name Game." Sponsor commercials include Lustre Creme Shampoo, Borden's Ice Cream, Peter Pan Peanut Butter, and Sara Lee finger rolls, but the best ad is for Ajax Power Cleaner, and features people doing some surprising things with the cleaner in their hand.
