What's the most enjoyable thing about DONNY & MARIE' Is it the psychedelic sets of Sid and Marty Krofft' The campy humor with jokes so bad, they're good' Or, the innocent charm that only the grouchiest of grouches can resist' Whatever the reason, this first volume is a trip back to a musical TV series that's a pop cultural explosion of ‘70s celebrities and over the top, and often over colorful, set pieces. She's a "little bit country" and he's "little bit rock & roll," but together they're a lot of ‘70s camp fun.
