Queen for a Day

Lynn guessed that maybe the Queen was coming to visit which made me think to dig up this picture of Penny.   Of course the Queen prefers the tailess model, but when this acting job came up Penny was selected for the role of “Queenie” in the Shining Time Station special “Queen for A Day”.

Unfortunately I was never able to get a copy of this movie, but not for a lack of trying!  If anyone has it I’d love to see it. 

Three more days!

and oh yeah…that’s not REALLY the Queen – its’ Jeanette Charles, who played the role in The Naked Gun

    Fame, fame, everywhere!
    Not the Queen… not Sidney… not Dennis… The Littlest Hobo?

    OMG you’re right!! I clicked on http://youtube.com/watch?v=AbZcceuU4gw and there was the scene I remember most where “Queenie” tries to tell everyone that Schemer has the Queen’s jewels.

    Trade secret…Penny was a ball fanatic.

    To get her to bark at Brian they tossed him a ball and then we let Penny go to get it from him 🙂

    More Penny footage starting at about the three minute mark at http://youtube.com/watch?v=NviQUHS7bIs

    I see they cut the scene of her sitting up and begging in front of Jeanette 🙂

    I watched that show, and loved it as a kid! I think I even remember that episode too 🙂

    Brought back memories, since I don’t think it’s on anymore. Even now, I have to wake up sinfully early to watch Wishbone, and Mr Rogers with my kidlet. (Or wake up and watch them without her… shhhh!)
