Trivia

During the sing-along segments, the song's lyrics are captioned at the bottom of the TV screen. A long-running myth claimed the series' sing-along segments also had an animated ball instructing home viewers the lyrics. Animator Max Fleischer introduced the "Follow the Bouncing Ball" in his animated short films in the mid-1920s. See more »

Follow the bouncing ball
14 January 2004 | by juliafwilliamsSee all my reviews

Before Karaoke, before MTV and music videos, there was Sing Along with Mitch and his bouncing ball. (The bouncing ball was also used in the cartoon sing-alongs).

Mitch Miller was (and still is) a gifted musician and great human being. He was ahead of his time in giving artists equal opportunity. For example, the south had threatened to pull the show off the air if Leslie Uggams was not removed from the show. Yet Mitch Miller adamantly said, 'no Leslie, no show.'

How unfortunate that there are no variety shows on television anymore.

Oh, yes. This one's got DVD potential.
