One of the most successful and fondly-remembered shows in TV history, "The Lawrence Welk Show" featured musical numbers and skits, with host Welk leading the band.
From its move to network television in 1955 until the very early 1960s, the show's primary sponsor was Dodge. The Dodge name would be part of the set and during some performances, the shots would be framed so that the Dodge name would be unobstructed. As was common in the 1950s, the name of the primary sponsor would be part of the show's official title. During this period, this show's official title was "The Lawrence Welk Dodge Show."
Lawrence Welk - Host:
Ah-One and Ah-Two.
When the show is shown in syndication on PBS, it contains color presentation clips filmed and hosted by surviving members of the Welk musical family. This is presumably done to pad the show out to the length it would be with commercial breaks.
