Wayne Newton was also in a couple of episodes of Bonanza, playing a kid

who liked to sing but his pappy was against it. Something a little strange

about the whole thing. And that hairdo. Yikes.

I remember him doing a Lucy show. A farmboy who sings Lucy discovers. But he chokes up in the studio, until Lucy, gives it that barnlike touch. GAG!!! Even as a kid, I thought it dumb!

Sad. What is it with the Cole family? They seem to have short life spans.......I guess she lived longer than some of the others......

Maybe she thought the haystacks would give a reverb effect. Yeah, a lot of

those old sitcom plots were pretty out there. ( I would have loved to see

Freddy Mertz' reaction to Wayne Newton). Then in the mid 1960s they would

try to work a British invasion band, real or made up,  into the plot along with a

"funny" band name. The Electric Toothbrushes.

This was when Lucy moved to  Hollywood and was solo (no Ricky, Fred or Ethel!) Yeah, that invasion band plot was used in a lot of sitcoms. i remember a Patty Duke one with Chad and Jeremy. Or was it Peter and Gordon? LOL.

Olivia Cole, who won an Emmy Award for her performance in "Roots," wasn't related to the family of Nat King Cole and Natalie Cole.

Yeah, after Chad and Jeremy and Peter and Gordon things get pretty thin

on the ground.

And then there was the episode of "The Mothers-In-Law" -- produced by Desi Arnaz -- in which The Seeds appeared as a rock group called The Warts. It's worth watching just because Deborah Walley dances in it!

Lassie Lou Ahern (June 25, 1920 - February 15, 2018) - American child actress during the silent era who appeared in some of the Our Gang silent shorts. She gained much notice for her role in Uncle Tom's Cabin (1927), although she abruptly quit films until the early 1940's, when she took a few bit parts and extra work. She had one last, short burst of activity on TV in the early 1970s.
