Two years before this episode, Desi Arnaz made an appearance on Laugh-In. This time around, it was his daughter Lucie's turn. And it's a little different here. While it may seem like Desi's outing might have come off as strange, given that it was opposite his ex- wife's show (and was so noted on that 1970 outing), Lucie Arnaz was still a cast member of "Here's Lucy." Seems remarkable, given that she was appearing on two shows on two different networks.
That said, in both instances, both father and daughter did well on the show (he in 1970, she in 1972). Lucie's bits are very funny, and she has a charming song and dance bit with Dick and Dan.
Laugh-In's look at adult entertainment was a very timely thing for 1972 (and I remember!), but by the standards of today, the attitudes seem so quaint and somewhat immature. And it shows how attitudes and the adult entertainment industry have changed.
Overall, the show seems to have hit a stride with its new routines, such as the cheerleaders. We also see a return of Gen. Bullright! Definitely a good outing!
