This was a classic episode although Red wasn't there
12 January 2009 | by (Warwick, Pa.) – See all my reviews

I remember this show very well. Red was out, recovering from back surgery and Desi Arnaz was guest host. The highlight of the entire show was Marcel Marceau doing "The Hare and the Tortoise" all in pantomime. Arnaz fumbled the word "tortoise" by saying "tor-toys" and someone would prompt him with the correct pronunciation, which got a huge laugh from the audience. (This was one of his trademarks from "I Love Lucy," mispronouncing words {sometimes on purpose} due to his Cuban accent.) Other skits were done by Marceau and Arnaz but this was the main one.

The show was done mostly in pantomime (Marceau did not speak, of course) and as always, at his glorious best. This one should be made available on DVD. Excellent family viewing!
