I got the "Van Dyke & Company" dvd set and it is just magnificent -- Lucy's guest appearance is one of her best from the 1970s variety shows and she does a great dance routine with Dick at the end of the show to the song "You Make It So Easy", which means a lot to those here in Australia as it was the theme to one of this country's greatest variety shows "The Don Lane Show"

 

It's hard t believe this was made 1975-76 as it certainly was a show well ahead of it's time (Steve Martin was one of the writers) and was cancelled after 11 episodes -- there are two "Let's Talk to Lucy" interviews with Dick Van Dyke included as well -- certainly recommended to all Lucy Loungers here!
