Arte Johnson's masterpiece
5 March 2014 | by kevinolzakSee all my reviews

"My Heart Belongs to a Two Car Garage" features LAUGH-IN's Arte Johnson as eccentric Russian artist Nicholas Minsky Pushkin, whose attempts to repay the famous Partridge hospitality with household chores meet with disaster. Ultimately, he returns to his specialty, painting his masterpiece on their garage. Unfortunately, it's a scantily clad female (Danny: "that's my kind of garage!"), which naturally sends the neighbors into a tizzy (a plot also used on CHICO AND THE MAN and WELCOME BACK KOTTER). The interesting cast includes Jeff Donnell, Ivor Barry, and, in one of his last roles, John Qualen ("The Grapes of Wrath"), as the one neighbor who likes the painting. The extremely prolific impressionist Frank Welker has a nice bit as 'a boy named Sioux,' in one of his earliest credits. The always funny and versatile Arte Johnson later appeared in an even funnier episode, "For Whom the Bell Tolls...and Tolls...and Tolls." The featured song is Tony Romeo's "Last Night," taken from the LP SHOPPING BAG.
