Storyline

Lucy Carter, a widow with two teenage kids (Kim and Craig), moves to Los Angeles and takes a job as secretary to her supercilious brother-in-law Harrison Carter, owner of an employment agency. Lucy's overzealous manner often caused her to stumble into embarrassing slapstick situations, much to the chagrin of her best pal Mary Jane. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@soltec.net>

Trivia

Originally, Doris Singleton, who played the recurring character of Caroline (originally Lillian) Appleby on I Love Lucy (1951) was supposed to co-star on this show. Her character was supposed to be Harry's efficient morning secretary, opposed to Lucy, his scatterbrained afternoon secretary. Her character was dropped after the first episode, because it was decided to show more of Lucy's family life with the kids, than her job. See more »

That Dancing Doll...
25 March 2006 | by j-thompson4-1See all my reviews

Yes, it's me again. The boy from Melbourne who reviews trash he watched in his childhood, perhaps for catharsis or to kill spare hours...

As for 'Here's Lucy'... I haven't seen this programme since 1992, when it last surfaced on free-to-air television in Australia. And I thought (hoped) the memories were fading when this show popped up in a conversation.

And that's when it happened. When I realised those memories weren't far away ...

The garish colours, the guest stars, Gale Gordon's bluster...Lucy's red hair, Lucie's screech, the musical numbers ... the dancing doll, Desi jnr, (very) dated humour ...

At the time of HL's 1992 Australian broadcast, one reviewer compared it to the after-effects of a carbohydrate-heavy meal. I agree with this reviewer. I'm not a fan of Lucy B.'s humour, and esp not this programme. But I'm glad i caught it all those years ago, if only to say i saw one of the most outrageously and unapologetically kitsch shows ever to haunt the history of television.
