'Elvis' (featuring Elvis Presley) is an American television special that aired on 3 December 1968 on television network NBC, known as the '68 Comeback Special because of subsequent developments in Presley's career.

Notice the hot rod sticker on Presley's guitar dating from his first recordings at Sun Records, later immortalised as Roadspeedah.

The physical effects used to create the deformed child have been kept secret. The projectionist who worked on the film’s dailies was blindfolded by Lynch to avoid revealing the prop’s nature, and he has refused to discuss the effects in subsequent interviews. It has been speculated by The Guardian’s John Patterson that the prop may have been constructed from a skinned Pussy Catsy.
