That Dancing Doll...
25 March 2006 | by j-thompson4-1See all my reviews

Yes, it's me again. The boy from Melbourne who reviews trash he watched in his childhood, perhaps for catharsis or to kill spare hours...

As for 'Here's Lucy'... I haven't seen this programme since 1992, when it last surfaced on free-to-air television in Australia. And I thought (hoped) the memories were fading when this show popped up in a conversation.

And that's when it happened. When I realised those memories weren't far away ...

The garish colours, the guest stars, Gale Gordon's bluster...Lucy's red hair, Lucie's screech, the musical numbers ... the dancing doll, Desi jnr, (very) dated humour ...

At the time of HL's 1992 Australian broadcast, one reviewer compared it to the after-effects of a carbohydrate-heavy meal. I agree with this reviewer. I'm not a fan of Lucy B.'s humour, and esp not this programme. But I'm glad i caught it all those years ago, if only to say i saw one of the most outrageously and unapologetically kitsch shows ever to haunt the history of television.
