That time William Shatner belly-danced on ‘$25,000 Pyramid’

This is begging for a remix.

On a quiet weeknight in July 1974, CBS video-recorded James T. Kirk as he blew up a lightning round on one of the first episodes ever of the “$25,000 Pyramid.” Unfortunately, the captain of the Enterprise and his game show partner lost to the opposing contestant, assisted by comedian Anne Meara.

Still, we get to see William Shatner perform one hell of a belly dance, believed to have aired two months later on WCBS-TV in New York.
