Sponsored by the Coca-Cola Company & hosted by Walt himself. it is watched by about 20 million people (although only 10.5 million TV sets exist in the U.S.). Guests include Edgar Bergen & his dummies Charlie McCarthy & Mortimer Snerd, Walt's daughters Diane & Sharon, Kathryn Beaumont (the voice of Alice in Wonderland) and Bobby Driscoll (the voice of Peter Pan). The Firehouse Five Plus Two - a Dixieland ensemble made up of Disney employees - also perform. Edgar Bergen takes Charlie McCarthy & Mortimer Snerd to a Christmas party thrown by Walt Disney.
