Notes: This was Ringo`s very first TV special and it was a modern day adaption of the old "Prince and The Pauper" story.
The special co-starred Carrie Fisher (fresh from "Star Wars") and Art Carney plus a cameo from George Harrison!
Quite a few musical numbers appear throughout with the duet version (with Carrie Fisher) of "You`re Sixteen" being excerpted and used on Ringo`s "Photograph: The Very Best of Ringo Starr" (Collector`s Edition DVD) (Aug 2007).
The special however has never been commercially released.
