What this thing ought to have been called is EPCOT CENTER: THE MUSICAL. In a series of loosely tied together segments, Danny Kaye goes from singing dandy to international spokesman to voice over artist for the China film. Don't miss the SHAMELESS use of E.T. (this was 1982 after all) to promote EPCOT. "Are you telling a close, personal friend of E.T. something is impossible?" You gotta' be kidding me.

Roy Clark, clearly inebriated, walks us through the Land. He hijacks one of the boats from Living with the Land and takes some confused tourists on a musical odyssey.

The best part is when Danny Kaye and the Walt Disney Company placate Alex Haley with the idea that they were going to build Africa in the World Showcase.

You can find it on torrent sites usually. If you're down with old school EPCOT this is a must.

Just remember, someone actually thought this was the best way to present the most heavy-handed piece of edutainment ever conceived. Amazing.
