Unseen anywhere since its one and only television broadcast on December 17, 1974, this special features host Perry Como with special musical guests The Carpenters, along with Olympic skating star Peggy Flemming and comedy great Rich Little.
Both Como and The Carpenters perform their top-selling Christmas music in this colorful spectacular, including “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” (Como), “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town” (The Carpenters), “Sleep Well Little Children” (Como & Karen Carpenter), and “Carol Of The Bells” (Richard Carpenter). Additionally, these magical musicians team up for a medley of each other‘s million-selling hits, including “Close To You,” “It‘s Impossible,” “Yesterday Once More,” “And I Love You So,” and “We‘ve Only Just Begun.”
Peggy Fleming performs a beautifully choreographed ice skating production of “The Christmas Waltz” and the entire cast join together for “It‘s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas” in a scene that recreates the Currier & Ives style of holidays past.
Perry closes the show with his elaborate “Story of Christmas” presentation, singing traditional carols “The First Noel,” “O Come All Ye Faithful,” “Silent Night,” and “O Holy Night.”
Perry Como‘s Christmas Show is the type of old-fashioned, star-studded, lavishly-produced family television special that gives viewers a warm, nostalgic glow for the holidays.

This brought me back to when my whole family would sit in the livingroom & watch the show together. If you are a Perry Como fan, you will enjoy this very much.
