Vintage Video: Oingo Boingo spices up ‘Disneyland’s Summer Vacation Party’ in 1986

For this week’s installment of Vintage Video, we flash back to 1986, and this clip of Oingo Boingo performing on the network TV broadcast “Disneyland’s Summer Vacation Party” on a bill that also included Kenny Loggins, Miami Sound Machine, The Bangles, Chubby Checker and more.

As you can see in the clip below, Danny Elfman and Co. are introduced by Nick from “Family Ties” and Theo Huxtable, then proceed to perform the Dead Man’s Party single “Stay” in front of a crowd of dancing fans (and some strange costumed creatures) at Disneyland.

See the whole thing via uploader Despina838, as well as an ad for the broadcast, below.







  1. Thanks for posting this Matt – I don’t recall that special, then again, if it was marked as Disney, I probably avoided it at the time!


  2. Poor lads. They were always so great live….I’m sure they felt like they had sold their souls when they found out the price of exposure was lip-synching.
