For this show the emphasis was on Hawaii though the talent winners were really from San Joaquin, California. Tommy Cole sings Little Grass Shack in Kealakekua, Hawaii while ten year old twins Yvonne and Linda Ribuca dance a hula. The twins then perform with Polynesian castanets to a jazzy instrumental. Their third dance with bamboo canes is to the mice singing a second season FWM tune, Holiday in Hawaii (Larry Orenstein), while Bobby Burgess does a kanaka dance. The Ribuca Twins attended Hollywood Professional School and would have an eighteen-month run on Broadway with Flower Drum Song following their MMC performance. Thereafter Linda seems to have left show business while Yvonne continued acting on television and in a Disney feature film well into the sixties.
