LUCY BY THE NUMBERS

Recommended Posts

71548?

reply from vivfantoo: When the first episode of My Favorite Husband aired. (I confess -- I figured this was a date & googled it :) !) How about, to make this game a little easier, we mention whether the number we post is from Lucy's real life or from one of her shows. The number I'm throwing out for you all to guess is 129, & it is from one of her shows. Bonus points if you can name the episode! :professor:

 

 

 

New York Times: “Lucille Ball will appear in CBS' Radio, half-hour series, My Favorite Husband,” published this date, 7/15, in 1948.

 

Actually, viv, the first episode was a preview episode, with Lucille and Lee Bowman, 7/5/48; the first episode, with Lucille and Richard Denning was 7/23/48.... I'm sorry; I just caught the error in my questioning the 15th - the NYTimes article was the date I was referring to. Loving you, JK

Not that it's "Lucy relevant" or anything as I don't recall they ever worked together but I've always found it interesting and kinda cool that Miss Albertson was also Cloris Leachman's mother-in-law! :D

 

Of another sort-of "Lucy connection" -- a stretch though it may be -- but she played Darrin Stephen's mom on Bill Asher's (ILL director majority of episodes) long-running Bewitched. :lucycoy:

Yeah, THAT one I remember. Mabel was practically everybody's mother on so many series.
