It's Magic was a musical variety show that ran for 13 episodes and was hosted by John Farnham and Colleen Hewett. It featured a regular cast of singers and comedians plus a special guest star each episode.

The two hosts also sang, danced, and participated in sketch comedy, including a regular segment called 'The Kids' in which they played cheeky five-year-old children.

The first time they performed 'The Kids' sketch, it was so popular with audiences that they decided to make it a weekly segment on the show. 

Shot live in the studio it shows John and Colleen were as capable of delivering scripted dialogue as they were at singing, and proved that both had a natural talent for comedy.
