THE LUCY SHOW EPISODE GUIDE
Lucy the Camp Cook
The boys have gone away to summer camp and Lucy and Vivan visit them at sleep away camp. Lucy and Viv become upset when they realize they can't afford for their boys to stay at camp an extra two weeks.
On the trip to pick them up, the car runs out of gas. The ladies have no luck at flagging down a passing motorist, but Mooney does. He catches the eye of a flirtatious little old lady who calls him "Big Boy."
When the camp cook quits, Lucy offers to take over and along with volunteering Viv as chefs to pay for the boys' extended stay. Although knowing nothing about feeding 200 people, they soon get into chaos. Naturally, the girls destroy the kitchen along with most of the food.
Special Notes: Comedian Harvey Korman plays the camp counselor. At the time he was a regular on the Danny Kaye TV variety show (1963-67).
