It is officially titled "THE MAGIC OF David Copperfield VI" but is better known as "The Magic of David Copperfield VI: Floating Over the Grand Canyon", in witch "Floating Over the Grand Canyon" is a reference to the first illusion, given that for the first time David Copperfield performs an illusion in witch he floats in midair. This illusion is one of the few no more repeated, and also one of the few conceived and filmed for the TV audience only, since it was not possible to have a live audience. However in this special he finally reveals the name of his duck, called "pet duck Webster" and showed for the first time in the "David's Fable" illusion, the last one of the third special. So, the illusions performed are: "Grand Canyon Levitation", "Vanishing Giraffe Neck", "The Girl And Her Bird", "Instant Photo" (aka "Kids Allisa And Bo"), "Love Magic Lost" (aka "One More Night"), "Audience Jumping Rubber Bands" (aka "Project Magic", that is first a rehabilitation program founded by Copperfield in 1982), "Slow-Mo Duck" and "Escape From Death". This last feat is the first escapology number that Copperfield presents in a special, never performed before by anybody, and inspired to an illusionist of the past, Harry Houdini. During this escape, Montalban shows the Copperfield's parents, Hyman Kotkin and Rebecca Kotkin, who make their first appearance among the spectators in a Copperfield TV special.
