Reuben Kincaid as the Good Fairy
5 March 2014 | by kevinolzakSee all my reviews

"Fellini, Bergman, and Partridge" is a well remembered episode, as Keith attends a screening of avant garde films, and naturally deduces he can do better. Laurie typically bets him that he can't, so with Danny's help he begins his shooting of "The History of the World" (with apologies to Mel Brooks), retitled by producer Danny "16 1/2." Home movie footage of Keith jumping through the sprinklers, Shirley dramatically clipping hedges, Chris painting, Tracy waving from her bath, etc. Danny enthusiastically wields the clapperboard for Laurie- "Cleopatra being sexy, take one!" soon yawning through "Cleopatra being dull, take one" (Susan Dey sexy and funny). The capper comes when Reuben shows up for what he thinks is a costume party, dressed as the Good Fairy (one of the show's most enduring images). The cast includes Richard Stahl, Judson Pratt, and Tony Ballen. The featured song is "Hello Hello," composed by Wes Farrell and Tony Romeo, taken from the LP SHOPPING BAG. We also hear another reprise (the last) of "Together," composed by Shorty Rogers and Kelly Gordon (previously heard in the pilot, plus episodes 3 and 35).
