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>

"Nude Painting" fiasco or the first I saw 'Here's Lucy'
29 May 2003 | by BaldachSee all my reviews

Recently I was volunteering at the local library sorting used donations. These used items are resold to pay for community programs such as guest speakers. Volunteers have first chance to purchase donated items. I was intrigued when I came across a VCR tape with the written title "Nude Painting". I was intrigued and purchased the tape thinking it was a program on how to paint nude models. However, I was treated to an 'Here's Lucy' episode where Lucille models to help a frustrated painter sell his paintings. The painter was portrayed by Danny Thomas. This was first time I had seen the show 'Here's Lucy' and I was impressed. I had expected a corny outdated show instead I was treated to a pretty good comedy show that made me laugh. Whether I was laughing at myself for being fooled, or at the comic routines I don't know.
