Here’s Lucy Season 3 (1970-1971) – By Jason S. Lockard

The laughs continue to roll as TV legend Lucille Ball is back for a third season of fun with Here’s Lucy, joined by her real-life children, Lucie Arnaz and Desi Arnaz, Jr. and Gale Gordon. Now thanks to Madman Entertainment in Australia I was able to relive the third season and you can too.

In the third season of Here’s Lucy, Lucille Ball is joined by special guest stars such as; Hollywood power couple Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, Vincent Price, Sammy Davis Jr., Rudy Vallee, Jak Benny, Art Linkletter, Buddy Rich, Wally Cox, and the return of Carol Burnett and Vivian Vance.

Some of the best episodes of season three include; ‘Lucy Meets The Burtons’ Lucy mistakes Richard Burton, (who escaped from fans by wearing a plumber’s disguise) for a real plumber. Later Lucy finds a diamond ring in his discarded over-alls. By the time Lucy discovers it is THE famous Elizabeth Taylor diamond ring, it is already stuck on her finger. ‘Lucy the skydiver’ Lucy threatens to take up skydiving if her kids don’t drop their dangerous activities, but Harry convinces her to actually do it as publicity for the Employment Agency. ‘Lucy’s Vacation’ Lucy tries to get fired so she can go to Palm Spring while Harry’s doctor is telling him to be nice to her. ‘Lucy Looses her cool’ Lucy is chosen on a game show. Art Linkletter, offers her $500 if she won’t lose her temper for 24 hours.
