Here's Lucy

CBS (ended 1974)




  • Season 5 Episode 21: Lucy and Harry's Pot

  • Here's an interesting story about this episode.

    I was in 7th grade in a short time before this episode
    aired and saw my fellow art-class student and friend
    Lance Deverich/Racana attempting to make a pot on
    the potter's wheel in Roger Twedt's Art Class at
    Palm Valley in Palm Springs, CA.

    Lance had a crazy Einstein hair-cut and was generally
    unkempt with kooky habits. We were best friends during
    our time at P.V. So I framed the shot of him, director-style
    left/thumb right/forefinger and reversed, etc. and thought,
    this would be a good film for our film class.

    Later, we did this as "The Potter's Problem" which won
    the California Art Educator's Award and at which one
    of Lucy's writers saw the episode, turned it into this
    episode and made it more famous. Others on the team at Palm Valley: Roger Twedt (art director,
    and Lucy's teacher in the episode of Here's Lucy, my art teacher,
    now deceased, along with his beloved wife and my 4th grade
    teacher Grace Twedt), Mike Stern (a friend), and Craig Siva
    (another friend.)

    Anyway, you know the rest now.

    P.S. I made a couple of pots in my life but always found it
    difficult. Now the most I do is watch them make pots at
    the Laguna Beach Sawdust Art Festival yearly.

    On another note, The Terminator series and some other
    James Cameron movies were produced by another Palm
    Valley graduate Gale Anne Hurd who was in a couple of
    classes ahead of me.
