"Humpty-Dumpty, Chinese Style -- Big Bird appears to be telling Bob Hope about an ancient ancestor of his. Seems this great-grandfather of Big Bird's was sitting on the Great Wall and had a fall…and that was the origin of Egg Foo Yung. Well, that might be exactly what Big Bird is saying, but you'll learn the history of some similarly exotic dishes on Bob Hope on the Road to China,' the first American variety show tape in The People's Republic. Airing Sunday, September 16, 8:00-10:00 p.m. (ET) on NBC-TV, the special will also star Peaches and Herb, Crystal Gayle, Shields & Yarnell and Mikhail Baryshnikov. Du-Pont, Coca-Cola and Texaco co-sponsor." -- photo verso.
