Get your toes tapping with a throwback clip from the Donny and Marie Show where Roy Clark and others perform ‘Foggy Mountain Breakdown.’
Hee Haw star Roy Clark did a hilarious rendition of "Foggy Mountain Breakdown' on the Donny and Marie Show. The old clip is resurfacing and finding a new audience with more than 49,000 views and counting.
Why? Because it's good old-fashioned television without politics and the doom-and-gloom we witness on TV these days. After all, what could be more fun to watch than a ‘rhinestone plowboy,’ which is what Roy calls Donny after Donny shows off his bedazzled cowboy boots?
But the fun is just beginning.

As Donny continues cracking jokes about country boys, Roy takes all of his cheekiness in stride. But Marie is a little confused by her brother’s peculiar behavior. She asks Donny why he’s talking funny.
Donny then explains how he was just trying to make Roy feel more at home with his jokes about country folk. Then the fun begins as Donny and Marie’s siblings join them, along with George Gobel, and comedian and talented flamenco guitarist Charo.
Together, the whole crew brings down the house with heat from their bluegrass style of picking! All jokes aside, the performance was jaw-dropping. And the comments about the performance capture it all.
