For this week’s Throwback Thursday, we tip our hats to the great comedian Lucille Ball.

The wannabe star once again works her way onto her husband Ricky’s stage, sliding onto the stage as the “Queen of All the Flappers” and playing a classic from the uke repertoire, “Has Anybody Seen My Girl? (Five Foot Two, Eyes of Blue).”

Sure, many actors have used ukuleles for comic props on TV and in the movies, but as this clip from 1952 shows, Ms. Ball knew her chords and could strum like the seasoned entertainer she was.

Just dig her dancing, too! We can only guess she got all that pep from using Vitameatavegamin.

All I know is that I love Lucy’s version!
