Storyline

Faye starts the show by talking with Cedric Adams who gives his take on Minneapolis. Sylvia Textor sings "I Wanna Be Happy" and after another brief chat with Cedric Adams, Faye goes to a Norwegian festival to watch a traditional dance. The Pepsi-Cola man (Joshua Shelley) talks about the smorgasbord and offers everyone a Pepsi. Sylvia Textor returns to perform two traditional song and dance numbers. Faye then goes fishing with Hubert Humphrey who talks about Minneapolis and how he got into politics. Then, at the bottom of Lake Minnetonka, Gil Lamb performs a comedic aquatic dance routine. Afterward, Faye talks with Paul Bunyan, played by Richard Carlson, and then everyone gathers for another Pepsi. As Faye signs off, she introduces her husband composer/musician Skitch Henderson.
