Playboy's Penthouse T.V. Party (variety, hosted by Hugh
(Syndicated, 1959 - 1960)
[aka: "Playboy's Penthouse";
This was the first of two series attempted by the Editor
of Playboy magazine ("Penthouse" magazine hadn't arrived.)
Various young women ("Bunnies") provided cocktails to the
guests in the background of the living room set, as a low-key
series of guest discussions and musical performances took
place -- a kind of "Tonight" show in pajamas, it never
took off. (Perhaps Heff just wasn't a Johnny Carson.)
In 1969, Heffner tried again with a similar variety
show in a party setting, called "Playboy After Dark"...]
