Tennessee Ernie Ford, who'd made three major guest appearances on the old I Love Lucy, is back for more on The Lucy Show. With Mr. Mooney's job in jeopardy unless he can land a big bank account, Lucy (Lucille Ball) tries to persuade millionaire country singer Homer Higgins (Ford) and his singing family (The Bank Porch Majority) to invest their savings in the bank. To expedite this plan, Lucy passes herself and her boss off as the countrified couple Irma and Josh Mooney--and then arranges for the bank to host an after-hours hoedown! Roy Roberts makes his first series appearance in the role of Mooney's boss Mr. Cheever, while Tennessee Ernie Ford sings "The Ladies' Auxiliary Barn Dance."
