No, it simply isn't. :) It's still brilliant.
It so totally is. And always will be. :D

Did you know they're now even selling "Dinner for One" merchandise? (Complete with champagne bottle, serving tray, coasters, towel, etc. ... all in black and gold.) I suppose it was only a matter of time, but still ...

I had no idea. Do they have tiger rugs? (Obviously, not real ones...)
Probably somewhere, that, too. What I saw was at Thalia (the book store chain, not the theatre), so mostly the stuff described above -- and of course the DVD version (good luck selling that in the age of YouTube); essentially, all sorts of things you can easily fit into a book bag. Though there was the odd tiger rug and / or tiger head image on some of the items.
I've never seen that before! It's great!
It's been a classic in Germany ever since it was first broadcast in the 1950s (recorded for a German TV station, even though it's in English). I don't know a single German who can imagine their New Year's Eve without it -- even though it's long been put on YouTube, virtually every single local TV station includes it in their 12/31 evening program. Never mind that most of us can recite every single word, movement and gesture by heart ...

Uhm, here is a German who can very well do without Dinner for One on New Year´s Eve. It´s okay, I like it when I see it, but I don´t have to watch it every year. In a lot of respects I´m not a typical German and when it comes to traditions, I´m a lot more influenced by the Danish ones.

We'll consider you Danish for purposes of "Dinner for One" then. :D (Even though it was NDR -- I think -- that first broadcast it back in the 1950s ...)

Ha, please do that. This makes me feel less alien ;). And as far as I know it is a NDR production.
Interesting! Thanks so much for sharing it, I quite enjoyed it :D
You're very welcome! :)
