There were three shows with the 'character' meeting the 'star' who portrayed them.

Doris Martin would 'meet' Doris Day, Fred Sanford would do likewise with Redd Foxx and this effort with Lucy Carter imitating Lucille Ball.

While Doris Day only appeared at the end of her episode, and I believe a bald Redd Foxx would do the same, the Lucy-Lucy bit here is amusing on several levels.

First, Lucie ARnaz bears perhaps her strongest resemblance to her mother quietly 'wowing' over the car when she sees it on TV.

Second is truly Lucille Ball's 'performance' as herself as someone primping and gliding among the masses. If anything, it all gives way to how much Lucy was Lucy, especially with her mannerisms.

And those horrible robes! Gowns, whatever. They are dreadful-looking.

Listen for Lucy Carter to call her daughter Kim 'doll' when she hands her the car keys at the end, much the same way Gary Morton would refer to Lucille Ball in warm-up bits.
