The show was a tour of California to visit with the people and join in their festivities. Co-stars were: Cass Elliot, the Mike Curb Congregation, comedian Fred Smoot; and Jim Backus, "Laugh-In's" Johnny Brown, Dom DeLuise, Fabian, Annette Funicello, Rosey Grier and Jo Ann Worley make cameo appearances. Fire engines and hook-and-ladders, and festivities as fiestas, pow-wows, Japanese celebrations, a Gold Rush days fete and a cattle round-up. One scene had Cass Elliott and Monty Hall wearing Japanese kimonos and Cass read a story from a book to a group of kids; it was a Peril of Pauline type story, where Cass the heroine was being annoyed by a handlebar-mustache villain (maybe played by Dom Deluise), who kept tying her to railroad tracks and such; then we cut away to Monty Hall dressed in his kimono, doing a faux slow-walk toward the camera while someone sang "Along Came Jones," but Cass had to rescue herself everytime. I think she was in about 3 perils --then Cass as narrator said "she was tired of waiting for Jones, and decided to marry the villain." Then Monty shows up at last, saying "Hi. I'm Jones. Any mail for me?" Written by EmpressDR See less
