Life With Lucy - Opening Credits After being away from sitcoms for 12 years, Lucille Ball returned to TV in the fall of 1986 with great fanfare at age 75 as the star of the ABC comedy Life With Lucy. (Here is the opening montage. The theme song was performed by Eydie Gorme.) Madelyn Davis and Bob Carroll, who had written scripts for I Love Lucy, were the show's producers. The premise of the show was that the recently widowed Lucy Barker decides to help out at the hardware store her husband ran. The only problem was she had had nothing to do with the store while her husband was alive, so she was clueless about everything. Eighty-year-old Gale Gordon also came out of retirement to play Lucy's husband's business partner Curtis McGibbon. Lucy had just moved in with her daughter Margo's family. Margo was married to Curtis's son, a law student. At the end of the first episode Curtis moves into the same house too. Got it? After a decent showing in the ratings for the first episode, Life With Lucy steadily plummeted downward. Even guest appearances by John Ritter and Audrey Meadows failed to halt the show's decline. After eight weeks it was dismally ranked 73rd out of 76 shows. Even though ABC had committed to 22 episodes, the scripts for 14 shows had been written, and 13 had been filmed, ABC pulled the plug after the eighth episode aired. Lucy was said to have been heartbroken that the public no longer wanted to see her on TV. She died about 30 months later.

Forgotten Sitcom - California Fever In 1979 CBS presented a new, hour-long sitcom/adventure show about four free-spirited teenagers called California Fever. Here's a teaser plus the opening credits. (During its production, the show had been tentatively titled "We're Cruisin'.") It debuted on September 25, 1979--and was gone by December 11, 1979 after just 10 episodes. Its time slot was not an enviable one: It aired from 8 to 9 p.m. on Tuesdays--directly opposite the ABC juggernaut duo of Happy Days and Laverne & Shirley. California Fever centered on the activities of a group of west coast youths who were often found at Rick's Place--a Sunset Beach hangout. The emphasis was typically on cars, music, and the opposite sex. Cast members included Jimmy McNichol, Marc McClure, Michele Tobin, and Lorenzo Lamas. Alan O'Day (who had a #1 song in 1977 with Undercover Angel) performed the theme.

Wait Till Your Father Gets Home Anyone remember this show? Wait Till Your Father Gets Home was arguably the first animated series created with a totally adult audience in mind. Total Television notes the show 'was strongly reminiscent of All in the Family.' Indeed it was. Between 1972 and 1974, 48 episodes were created by Hanna-Barbera for syndication. Tom Bosley provided the voice of main character Harry Boyle, a typical American father who tried to provide for a family of five. His wife Irma and two eldest children (overweight Alice and lazy Chet) held distinctly different political and social viewpoints than the man of the house, but youngest son Jamie tended to agree with dad most of the time. Rounding out the cast was ultra-right-wing neighbor Ralph Kane whose anti-communist zeal basically turned part of the neighborhood into an armed camp. Ralph was voiced by Jack Burns. This clip shows a brief teaser for a first-season episode and the show's opening credits and theme song.

Thats My Mama - Failed Sitcom ABC had high hopes for the sitcom That's My Mama when it debuted in the fall of 1974. This clip shows the bland opening credits from the first season. The sitcom was set in a middle-class black section of Washington, D.C. It featured Clifton Davis as Clifton Curtis, a youthful barber who was the proprietor of a shop he inherited from his late father. Theresa Merritt played his widowed mother, Eloise. Slotted on Wednesday nights directly against against NBC's Little House on the Prairie, the sitcom failed to crack the Nielsen top 30 at any time during its first season and was nearly axed. Still thinking it had potential, ABC kept it on for part of a second season. When ratings did not improve, That's My Mama was terminated after its 39th episode aired on December 17, 1975--although a rerun was shown the following week. The sitcom did, however, launch the career of Ted Lange, who played the roll of Clifton's flamboyant friend, Junior. Lange went on to bigger and better things as bartender Isaac Washington on The Love Boat.

Bing Davdison Tragic Death One of Hollywood's lesser known tragedies was the death of small-time actor James (Bing) Davidson, a 25-year-old Nebraskan who fell to his doom in 1965. Davidson, whose screen credits show just three small roles, was in the company of actor Paul Lynde in San Francisco on July 17, 1965. Lynde was well known to be a heavy drinker; he and Davidson had both heavily imbibed that night. At some point of drunkenness at the Drake Hotel, Davidson decided to demonstrate a daredevil stunt--hanging from a balcony by his fingertips. In full view of several horrified onlookers (and police officers who had been summoned), Davidson lost his grip and fell to his death from the eighth floor of the hotel. Lynde was absolved of any blame, but the incident was hushed up for years as the circumstances surrounding it may have derailed Lynde's acting career.
