The first show in the series began with a parade on Main Street U.S.A. Host Johnny Jacobs introduced the evening's guests, who passed by in the parade. The program included lively musical numbers and performances, including the Dapper Dans performing ""When You and I Were Young, Maggie"" (from 1866 by James Butterfield and George Johnson) with a new patter chorus (this turned the song into ""Maggie Blues"") written by composer Jimmy McHugh. The quartet sang the song with McHugh while they did the patter. The producers had built a fake barbershop beside the Disneyland firehouse in the doorway that led into the Emporium. The quartet also rode the four-seater bicycle on this program. Jim Schamp and Ron Browne remember it being a very wild scene in Town Square because it was a live broadcast.
