YEAR:  1985

PERNELL SCREEN TIME:  A pitiful four minutes.

SYNOPSIS:  These shows were all the rage back in the 80s.  Stars from various shows would train in a circus stunt, of some sort, and then be filmed for the special.

A barefoot Pernell gets to play with a samuri sword, water melon and a few cucumbers.  In other words, he slices them up.  He also karate chops four layers of burning wood, uses each elbow on a few more pieces and generally appears to be having fun. 

He's wearing a karate ensemble, including a black belt and the bandana, looks very similiar to the ones he wore in Bonanza.
