About this item

Description Gala Poochie Pup struggles with wanting to play but having to stay inside because of rain. To cheer him up, Big Todd and Rootie sing him a song about waiting for the sun. Gala Poochie in turn pitches the show’s sponsor, Silvercup bread. Gala Poochie Pup stays on stage to perform a song by Mario Lanza and a prank on Big Todd. The prank runs amok when the Mario Lanza record used to lipsync is broken.
