Rob and Laura Duets

There were six duets* featuring Rob and Laura during the run of the series (I wish there had been more). Here’s my personal ranking (ordering them is not easy, as they’re all great):

6. Wearing Santa Claus outfits, during “The Alan Brady Show Presents.”
5. Performing “Harmony” at Herbie’s Hiawatha Lodge in “The Secret Life of Buddy and Sally”.
4. “I’ve Got Your Number”, in “The Alan Brady Show Goes to Jail”. The duo is dressed in prison outfits, and does a tap dance with their ankles joined by a chain.
3. “Carolina in the Morning” – “The Sam Pomerantz Scandals”.
2. “Mountain Greenery” (this is the only one that is singing only, no dancing; but I rate it highly because of the up-tempo jazz arrangement and nice harmony. Performed in the episode “The Sleeping Brother”.
1. “You Wonderful You”, in the early episode “Oh How We Met on the Night That We Danced”.

* Rob and Laura did perform one other song and dance together, in the episode “Too Many Stars”; but I have excluded it from the list because it was a trio, with a non-recurring character.


  1. Glad to see someone else appreciates the Rob and Laura duets.They made quite a team.
    My favorites are "Carolina in the Morning" due the great harmony and particularly elegant soft shoe by Laura and The Santa Claus routine, which is well performed and downright charming.
    The others are also excellent.

  2. Sally's numbers were great too. I especially like the way she belts out the tune "I want to be around when somebody breaks your heart." They do have a compilation of them on youtube.

    1. Sally was a great "torch"singer.You don't hear that kind of stuff anymore.
