This video features the Mouseketeers interacting with guest stars Lionel Kaye (1901-1987) and his wife Kathleen. Lionel was a comedian who performed live in vaudeville, on Broadway, in nightclubs, and at fairs. He has no known television or film credits other than this MMC episode, but was well regarded in show biz trade publications and newspaper reviews from the 1930's thru the 1960's. He was the hero of the LA Palomar Ballroom fire in 1939, staying on stage to calmly direct the audience to the exits and urging them not to rush even as flames burned behind him. Here he puts the mice thru two of his standard stage gags, playing a tune with hand bells and the hat snatching game.
