Frank Nelson's Disappearance

Recommended Posts

Having been a recurring player on "My Favorite Husband" and "I Love Lucy,"  I wonder why he not once appeared on either "The Lucy Show" or "Here's Lucy."  Was he considered too similar in style to Gale Gordon?  I know he continued to work throughout the period, having made a few funny appearances on "Sanford and Son" as his usual obnoxious sales clerk character, "eee-Yessssss!"


Also, what would have "The Lucy Show" been like had he been cast as Mr. Mooney?  Better, worse, or just different?

Frank Nelson was in "Lucy Visits the White House" but that was his final Lucy episode.

After that, it seems his appearances become more sporadic and voice overs.

O I C but his question is very valid though, I too wondered why he never appeared with her again in her later series.  He was such a great character.
