Myron Floren's Offspring
An unsettling performance of "The Chicken Dance," performed by dancer and former Mouseketeer Bobby Burgess along with his gawky offspring. Bobby is the son-in-law of the late accordionist Myron Floren, both of whom were long-time performers on "The Lawrence Welk Show." Myron himself provides musical accompaniment after introducing the "performance," which takes place on an eerily barren, dungeon-like stage. This clip has all the classic, premeditated, cornball Welk staginess, minus the talent. Also, everyone has that trademark, desperately forced Welk smile. What fun!
