Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Vivian Vance makes her first Lucy Show appearance since leaving the series at the end of Season Three, reprising her familiar role as Lucy's best friend Vivian Bagley--now known as Vivan Bunson, thanks to "that little band of gold." But it's not entirely a sentimental reunion: Viv has arrived from Danfield on a mission to rescue young Herbie Walton (Les Brown Jr.), who has seemingly dropped out of medical school to become an unshaven hippie on the Sunset Strip. Yes, this is the classic episode in which Lucy and Viv disguise themselves as hippies (though they look more like beatniks), then engage in a wild dancer number with a pair of male hippies (who look more like motorcycle bums). Far out, right on!
