Lucy Puts Out a Fire at the Bank


Lucy Puts Out a Fire at the Bank

The Lucy Show

The Danfield municipal finance committee doesn't want to renew the Volunteer Fire Department's appropriation because of all the mistakes it has made. Lucy arranges to have the Volunteer Fire Department professionally trained so they can have their contract renewed.

Lucy realizes that something dramatic might further change the committee's mind and she plans to show Mr. Mooney personally. She schemes to save the bank from a fire to prove their worth. Lucy sets off a smoke bomb in the bank with the ladies standing by outside, ready to come to the rescue.

Special Notes: Originally meant to air on November 25, 1963, but was delayed a week due to continuous CBS coverage of the assassination and funeral of President John F. Kennedy. Alan Hale who plays Captain Burke is best known for his role as The Skipper in "Gilligans Island", (1964-67).

Bloopers: When Lucy and fellow firefighters go to rookie training school, Lucy calls Frances by the actresses real name, when she says "Get back in line, Mary! Just stay back there."
