    "The Traveling Christmas" opens with JJ fired from his Santa Claus job, not enough lap to hold a single child! Willona plans to attend the Evans Christmas party in her brand new welfare dress: "no visible means of support!" Keith won't be able to go because his cab driving job will keep him occupied during their busy season. Florida figures that they can hold their party at Keith's Windy City garage, with the approval of his Grinch boss Mr. Clements (Harry Caesar). JJ serves as the emcee, doing some comedy before introducing Michael singing the current Brenton Wood single "Rock You to Your Socks," 'Santa Claus' Bookman makes all his favorite moves, Keith does impressions of Robert Goulet, Jerry Lewis, Johnny Mathis, Tony Bennett, and Bill Cosby, concluding with 'The Pointless Sisters,' consisting of Florida, Willona, Thelma, and Penny, as fine a quartet of booty shakers as can be imagined.
