HarryCarter Posted August 14, 2013 Report Share Posted August 14, 2013 Here is a very short excerpt from one of Lucy's most bizarre TV appearances: The Don Ho Show in 1977. The Lucy segment is from 3:07 to 3:22. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8EHxM8Z9LMk&feature=youtu.be The Paley Center has a full copy of this show. Here's the set up: Lucie was the guest co-host of the week and she brought Lucy and DeDe with her to Hawaii. During the show Lucie mentions that her mother is currently on another part of Hawaii. In this segment, an audience member has to play a What's My Line? type game with a celebrity over the telephone. The questions don't have to be yes or no. The person on the phone is obviously Lucy. The guy from the audience has no idea, so Don supplies the questions. (Question: Do you do crazy things?/Lucy: Yes, in bed.) The guy never guesses who it is and the other audience members clearly think he's an idiot. Then there's the telephone exhange between Lucie and Lucy seen in the above clip. Lucy makes her surprise entrance with a microphone in one hand and a drink in the other. Despite having a microphone in her hand, Lucy does not speak on camera, she just parades around the stage while Lucie and Don sing Mame accompanied by a hula girl kickline. Lucie was supposed to be the guest co-host for a week, but ended up doing it for three consecutive weeks. Lucie superfan Rosie O'Donnell told her high school she was suffering from mononucleosis so she could cut school for three weeks and watch Lucie on the show every day.
