Julie Andrews and Gene Kelly play The Tapping Game… and they sing and dance, because when you have Julie Andrews and Gene Kelly on stage together, that’s what happens. This clip is from a 1965 Thanksgiving weekend variety special called The Julie Andrews Show.

The Tapping Game has proven useful for waiting rooms, grocery store lines, rainy days, and the like. Related watching: pen drumming, playing the river like a drum, and objects falling to make rhythm.

Bonus: Fred Astaire dances with drums and Gene Kelly sings and dances in the rain.
