Great Christmas Story
16 June 2019 | by Johnny_WestSee all my reviews

It took me a minute to figure out Wayne Newton was the gay kid singing in this episode of Bonanza. This episode features Jack Oakie as the slick promoter who is using the naive Wayne Newton to fleece the town fathers of money intended to support an orphanage.

Just when it seemed like the gullible Hoss was going to let a wonderful Christmas turn into a horrible theft by Jack Oakie, Ben Cartwright returns to the Ponderosa and straightens everything out. A great time is had by all, as Wayne Newton sings Christmas songs in his girlish voice, to the entertainment of the Bonanza Family and their guests. Everyone enjoys the Christmas dinner, friendships, and family. These old school Christmas episodes are very special, as they reflect a time when Christmas and family values were allowed on television.
