I just got through the whole 'I love Lucy' set in the post the other day.. i'm so excited. Apart from, when I'm meant to be studying for gcse's, its probably not good. Quick question.. what was the picture from of Lucy and Danny Kaye? xx

Sorry for the super late reply. I’ve posted several photos of them, so I’m not sure which one you mean right now, but they worked together/worked on the same shows several times:

  • Twelve Star Salute to the Federation of Jewish Philantropies which was a salute to the great charitable work of the FJP (1961)
  • The Danny Kaye Show (1962) Which also was the first time Lucy’s red hair was shown on TV in full color
  • The Danny Kaye Show (1964)  Clip
  • The Lucy Show: Lucy Meets Danny Kaye (1964) Her appearance on his show was a trade-off for his appearance on her show
  • A Salute to Stan Laurel (1965) Which was a benefit for the Motion Picture Relief Fund and a tribute to the deceased Stan Laurel. Danny and Lucy didn’t do anything together here tho, she did a sketch with Buster Keaton, but they were both part of the special. 
  • Night of 100 Stars Two (1985) which was a sequel to Night of 100 Stars, a benefit for the Actors Fund of America. Lucy did the introduction here and that was all as far as I know, but Danny Kaye was also part of the show. 

god i love this show!! a marathons on right now, it's amazing! i remember we did a 50's project about stuff happening from that time, one person did TV and Music and put 'I love Lucy' as a soap opera. i'm thinking 'man do you have your facts wrong..' and said 'it's basically the original sitcom!!'

Even tho I have the series on DVD I’d give so much to be able to see it on TV as well. Unfortunately none of the channels we have send it, but I’m happy to know they do in certain places still to this day :’) 


Your blog>>>>. THANK YOU!!!!
