- Mr. Pastry's quadrille dance (Lancers) for one, filmed in 1950s and 1960s and popular on the Ed Sullivan show. Mr. P., in white gloves, tails and all, would be on stage alone, as if in a square. When the music started, he'd stand and nod his head, counting beats, waiting to do his part of the dance. If the move was "circle left," he'd move to the left as if being pulled along by the "other dancers." On "circle right", he'd be jerked along in the opposite direction. If the move was "grand right and left, his head would snap back on each pull by. Then he'd stand and nod his head some more, nervously counting beats.
