Debbie Thompson was an ordinary housewife who wanted desperately to become a newspaper reporter. Her husband Jim was a well-known sportswriter for the Los Angeles Sun, and was constantly being put on the spot by Debbie's schemes and plans to build a career for herself. The resemblance to "I Love Lucy" isn't coincidental, since this show was produced by "Lucy" writer Jess Oppenheimer. Debbie's sister Charlotte was Debbie's sidekick in her nutty plans, while brother-in-law Bob remained chagrin. Written by

The theme song and action in the opening credits of the Debbie Reynolds Show was directly copied by Monty Python's Flying Circus (1969) in a parody called "The Attila the Hun Show" in the MPFC episode of the same name. See more »
What I remember about "The Debbie Reynolds Show" is that the first sponsor for the show was a cigarette company. Ms. Reynolds felt that cigarettes were NOT the way to promote a family show, and she threatened to quit rather than give in to the sponsors. The powers that be gave in to her demands, and I think Hunts Catsup sponsored the show. I never forgot that. She was a woman of convictions and I admired her for it.
