In this marvelous spoof of "Beatlemania," singers Chad Stuart and Jeremy Clyde guest star as The Redcoats, a wildly popular British rock duo who've signed to appear on "The Alan Brady Show." Unfortunately, the Redcoats' horde of screaming teenaged fans make it impossible for the boys to rehearse -- or for that matter, to stay in a Manhattan hotel room. Producer Mel (Richard Deacon) comes up with a solution to the latter problem: The Redcoats will spend their week in the States at the home of Rob and Laura Petrie (Dick Van Dyke and Mary Tyler Moore). Chad & Jeremy perform "I Don't Want No Other Baby But You" and "My, How the Time Goes By."
