Sid and Marty Krofft's Red Eye Express was a late-night variety special that aired on CBS on March 9, 1988.


Ron Reagan stars as the owner of The Red Eye Express, a nightclub frequented by celebrities (and celebrity look-alike Krofft puppets). Through the course of the hour, Reagan mingles with various puppets (Cher, Jack Nicholson, Whoopi Goldberg, Ronald Reagan Sr., etc.), real-life people (Chuck Berry, Lou Albano) and performing guests (Gloria Estefan, Eric Carmen, Rick Astley).
