Contacted by Fred Silverman, the President of NBC, Lucille Ball accepts to go back to work as a producer. With the help of her faithful production assistant, Gale Gordon, she starts working on a new series titled "The Music Mart".
The special opens with a bus tour through Beverly Hills, passing the homes of Henry Fonda, Jimmy Stewart, and (of course) Lucille Ball. Ball orders the driver to stop because she wants to get out. She says "It's my way of saving gas." In 1979, the US experienced its second energy crisis, with the price of crude oil doubling, resulting in long lines at service stations.
