THE LUCY SHOW EPISODE GUIDE
Lucy Helps Ken Berry
(featuring Ken Berry)
Ken visits the bank to get a loan for his dance school. Mr. Mooney is resistant, because new businesses fail so often and turns Ken down for a loan. Lucy feels that if she can get Ken onto TV's Ralph Story's L.A., the publicity would guarantee the school's success.
Lucy arranges for a bunch of truck drivers to sign up for lessons and rounds up the TV coverage. Berry does a song-and-dance to "One for My Baby" and teams with Lucy for "Lucy's Back In Town".
Special Notes: Lucille discovered Ken Berry in the 1950s in her Desilu Workshop. He is best known as Captain Wilton Parmenter on F-Troop, Sam Jones on Mayberry, R.F.D., and Vinton Harper on Mama's Family.
Bloopers: Lucy is so nervous about her dancing that she keeps flubbing her lines with Ralph Story. Story is a local L.A. newsman who has his own weekly TV program spotlighting interesting aspects of the city.
