  • Lucy & Eva Gabor are Hospital Roomies ("I'm now down to my basic diamonds.")
  • Harrison Carter: Male Nurse
  • A Home is not an Office ("Hello?!")
  • Lucy & Joe Namath
  • Lucy, The Other Woman ("Now, zing your zong!")

Sammy Davis, Jr. was great. In fact, he was in an all-time classic episode of "All in the Family." But his appearance on "Here's Lucy" was a disappointment for all concerned.

 

Just watched the All in the Family Sammy Davis, Jr. episode the other day along with several other classic AITF episodes such as the one where Edith goes through menopause (LOVE this episode! Contains one of the best performances by Jean Stapleton in the AITF series), the one where Maude comes to take care of the Bunker household and clashes with Archie, the one where Archie gets stuck in an elevator with four other people and witnesses a live birth, the two-parter where Edith almost gets raped and has an emotional breakdown afterwards, the one where Archie saves and kisses a man thinking the person was a woman and later finding out the person was a cross dresser ... much to his embarrassment, the one where Mike goes against his views on violence and punches a guy on the train and then admits to liking it, the one where Archie's beloved chair gets destroyed, the one where Edith invites a couple to have a fun/game night with her and Archie not realizing they are swingers, the one where Archie and Edith have supper at their new next-door neighbors, the Jeffersons, for the very first time, etc. Bunch of GREAT episodes there. Anyways, I do agree that the Here's Lucy Sammy Davis, Jr. episode was a let-down. Lucy Carter was too pushy in that one and such a ding-a-ling. It wasn't funny at all just annoying. However, the AITF one was a riot fest all the way through the scene where Sammy kissed Archie. How did you like the other sitcoms that Sammy Davis, Jr. made a guest star appearance in (such as I Dream of Jeannie and The Jeffersons)?

When Shout was compiling episodes for "The Best of Here's Lucy", a guy I know took an extensive poll and here are the top twenty episodes by number of 'top ten' votes:

 

1-10: Burtons, NG as RN, Lucy Meets Lucy, With Viv as a Friend, Lawrence Welk, Lucy Fights the System, Jack Benny's Biography, Harry's Pot, a Date for Lucy, Ann-Margaret

 

11-20 Lucy the Crusader, Harry's Tonsils, Lucy the Matchmaker (Viv), Kim Moves Out, Used Car Dealer (Berle), Flip Wilson, Lucy the Fixer, Working Daughter, Harrison Carter-Male Nurse, Ginger Comes to Tea.

 

It always surprises me: the episodes people like and don't seem to like as much as I do. Conspicuously missing: Big Break, Ski Lift/Dinah, Craig's Drivers License. AND the fact that Working Daughter, Male Nurse and Ginger only barely make the top 20!

Hi! I'm new here! I'm a third generation Lucy fan. My grandma loves "I Love Lucy" and my mom and dad not only Love "I Love Lucy", but they also enjoy both "The Lucy Show" and "Here's Lucy" and they passed on their love for this terrific funny lady and her great shows to me.

 

The last show I watched was last saturday and it was the "Bow Wow Botique.

I watched Lucy And The Andrews Sisters and I love the opening where Kim had these neat Hollywood star posters in her room and Lucy held up an old poster of herself. I would love to have some of those posters!

I've always loved that scene! Also in Lucy Gets Lucky in the MGM Grand where she passes her photo and checks her hair. Love those scenes.

Very metta with Lucy acknowledging herself. I always like those 2. The other is on one of the Carol Burnett musical HL's they have old movie posters up. One is Greatest Show on Earth. The movie Lucy couldn't do because of the brunette dancing next to her.

Yeah, they were so unexpected and a sort of a wink to her audience.

I always wished 'Lucy and Uncle Harry's Pot' was a plot about, shall I say, the other Mary Jane. :D

Wouldn't have gone over well with her General Foods image though.  Maybe that's why she seemed dumb in so many episodes, too much smoking weed!

That's it, I'm convinced, Lucy Carter is a pothead! ;)

Mrs Ricardo, can you pass that marijuana cigarette over? ;)

 

No wonder Ethel always had the munchies! :)

But it's ok, remember Lucy always said that she did not inhale!

Parley Baer who played Mayor Stoner in the Andy Griffith Show was in a few episodes of The Lucy Show and Here's Lucy.

And wasn't one of her other co stars a pothead, Paul Winchell I think.
