It was hard to avoid The Twist in the 1960's; in the U.S., dance creator Chubby Checker used to come on TV In my area, and give brief lessons on how to do it. What dances do you recall being popular in your childhood or teenage years?

Hyacinth (on phone with Daisy or Violet): "I once caught Richard playing with a Frisbee. He said that it was one that he found, but I've never been sure."

Hyacinth to Richard: "I will not have you thinking in front of the neighbors, Richard."

Here's an obscure one; American entertainer and TV personality Soupy Sales had a comic dance craze called The Mouse in the 1960's that he would perform on his show. Partial song lyrics: Be the first one on your block, every cat in the neighborhood will be in shock...
