Lawrence Welk - Talk to the Animals

From a 1968 episode of The Lawrence Welk Show, Golem-favorite The Lennon Sisters sing "Talk to the Animals".

Why am I linking to this? The dancing lion, of course.

Whereas the dancing gorilla and bear are quite good (in fact the Gorilla is dancing his ass off), it appears they picked someone at random from the audience to wear the lion costume. Either that, or the person inside is just desperately trying to keep the head from falling off.

(The lion comes out at 1:00 -- if you wish to cut right to the funny part.)
