SATURDAY COLOR CARNIVAL: THE ERNIE KOVACS SHOW (TV)

Summary

This special program with comedian Ernie Kovacs consists of only music and sound effects, with no dialogue. This "silent show" includes a segment that follows the vicissitudes of a character named Eugene as he wanders about a men's club in a pair of squeaky sneakers; an animated dance set performed to "Summertime"; and an appearance by the Nairobi Trio. Commercials deleted.

(This black-and-white copy of Kovacs's first work in color was shown as the second part of the program "Saturday Color Carnival.")
