Jimmy Garrett

Jimmy Garrett was best known for playing Jerry Carmichael, Lucy's son on The Lucy Show. He starred in the series during the first format of the show from 1962-65 before being written out when Vivian Vance left the series and the show's locale switched to California.

Garrett was only eight when he appeared on The Lucy Show but he had been working in the entertainment industry since he was nine months old. His first commercial was in 1956 for a Bell Telephone. His first acting job was in "Playhouse 90" in 1959. When his mother heard that Lucille Ball was casting children for her new sitcom, she immediately had Garret try out for the audition.

The children were written out of The Lucy Show in the fall of 1965. Garrett's character went off to military school, Candy Moore's went off to college and Ralph Hart's character moved with his mother Vivian when she remarried. But unlike other child performers, Garrett had no problem adapting to life without television. He attributes this to a good family life as his parents did not push him into entertainment.

Prior to The Lucy Show, he appeared in "The Second Time Around" (1961), a 20th Century Fox feature film starring Debbie Reynolds. In addition to the episodes of "Playhouse 90", Jimmy Garrett also appeared in "The Twilight Zone", "Mr. Ed", "My Three Sons", and "Burke's Law" among others. He also appeared in the feature film, "Munsters, Go Home", which was based on the tv show, "The Munsters".





Other notables this coming weekend include Oscar winner Shirley Jones, Barbara "I Dream of Jeannie" Eden, Margaret O'Brien, Linda Blair, Stella Stevens, Sally Kirkland, Pat Boone, Debby Boone, Mackenzie Phillips, Rona Barrett and many, many more including several original "Mousketeers"(e.g. Cubby O'Brien, Bobby Burgess, Sherry Alberoni etc.) appearing for a reunion. :D
