I agree with BonnieGirl I remember seeing that as a real young boy and I thought the dancing Lucy puppet was neat. Very cute show opening.

(I Love Lucy is currently airing on MeTV, and The Lucy Show is on Decades.) By the time Lucille Ball got to this Here's Lucy series, she was without the strong supporting cast of the past, and the writing was sub-par. Her own two kids as replacements for Vivian Vance, William Frawley and Desi Arnaz is like substituting a bottle of the finest wine with a can of Coca Cola. There are still some very funny episodes here and there, but mostly there's a whole lot of mediocrity in between. Here's Lucy is proof that even the best comedians and comediennes still need a strong supporting cast and writing. Besides, when this show started in 1968, Lucille Ball had already been on the air for 20 years (including her radio series), so her writers were running out of new ideas. Somehow they managed to squeeze out another six years of scripts for this show.

A year ago when Here's Lucy first started running on Cozi, I started a thread where I pointed out the episodes that are worth watching, and warning about those to pass on.

Those are my opinions, but maybe a good guide.

Incidentally, about that puppet, I remember when the show originally aired, I was fascinated by that puppet and it never scared me at all. Anything that was animated I always loved. After this series, that puppet was put in storage in a warehouse in the Los Angeles area. Then in the early '80s it was stolen from the warehouse and has never been found. A few years ago, I saw someone posted a comment that they know where it is, but the jerk wouldn't provide any further information. So it apparently still exists out there somewhere with the thief, or a friend of the thief.
For those of use who really do "Love Lucy", the show was fine... just Lucy being Lucy.
