Watch The Ed Sullivan Show “Yours, Mine And Ours” Segment:

Santa Monica, CA – March 1, 2022 – Academy Award® nominated Licorice Pizza celebrates coming-of-age during the early 1970s with wonderful moments from popular culture. The pre-teen childhood experiences of the lead character include a re-enactment of Lucille Ball’s appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1968 to promote her then-new movie Yours, Mine and Ours — the classic comedy about a real-life blended family long before the phrase was coined. Today, The Ed Sullivan Show’s official YouTube channel presents the original segment featuring the iconic red head and the 18 young actors who portrayed her birth and adopted children in the movie.

In the appearance, Ed Sullivan closes his interview with Lucille Ball by introducing the kids from the film. Look closely to spot Gary Goetzman, Licorice Pizza producer and Tom Hanks’ filmmaking partner, whose spirited memories comprise many adventures in the critically acclaimed film. The segment is a must-see for fans of either movie as Lucille Ball prances and the children romp around in their pajamas singing the theme song “Yours, Mine and Ours.”
