Lucy did a couple Untoucahable-themed episodes on The Lucy Show, one was called Lucy the Gun Moll which has her working with Robert Stack to catch a gangster, another was called Lucy and the Lost Star which costarred Joan Crawford, and had a fantasy sequence with the Untouchables theme.

I always thought that Viv was the glue that held those earlier episodes together. Who could ever forget the episode about "Crazy Crunch" or of the Christmas episode about "Chris Crinkle".
