Jeanne Little delights in showing Mike Walsh a number of amusing potential novelty Christmas gifts.
She starts with the relatively safe fake wine bottle dust but goes for the comedy jugular by handing Mike a sex toy. The studio audience loves it.
This was daytime television in 1980 and Jeanne got away with behaviour that others wouldn't have, by using comedy and a daffy persona.
This clip is a great example of Jeanne's style of improvised comedy. Although her segments look effortless, a lot of preparation went into them.
Each of the weekly segments (on live television) often lasted for 10 to 15 minutes unscripted – which is an impressive achievement.
