Remembering Judy Carne 1939 - 2015

English actress Judy Carne, who died Thursday (September 3) at age 76, was best known as the "Sock it to me!" girl on NBC's Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In from 1968 to 1970. Her first regular role on American television was in the 1962-63 CBS sitcom, Fair Exchange, and while on a promotional tour for the series, she met actor Burt Reynolds, whom she married in 1963 and divorced two years later.

Below I've selected some videos to celebrate Ms. Carne's life and career.

She and Peter Deuel played a newlywed couple living in San Francisco in the 1966-67 ABC sitcom, Love on a Rooftop.

She appeared on Laugh-In on February 5, 1968, with guest stars Cher and Tim Conway.

In 1968, Reprise Records released her single, "Sock It To Me".

She sang "Ring-Around-a-Rosy Rag" on the ABC variety show, The Hollywood Palace, on January 4, 1969 (she later starred in the 1970 Broadway revival of the musical, The Boy Friend).

On January 29, 1971, she appeared on ABC's Love, American Style with Robert Reed and Tiny Tim.

She had a lot of rough bumps in her life, many of her own making, but I remember her as that cheery, pert young girl in the day-glo colored dresses and ear to ear smiles. LOVED Love on a Rooftop, it seems to me that it and He & She, another short-lived favorite, ran back to back briefly.

Geez it's seems every week, or in this case with Dean Jones and Martin Milner too, every other day we're saying goodbye to some staple of the 60's. It fills one with melancholy. :-(

I agree, Joel, that it's very sad to see so many television and film stars from our childhood leaving us.

As for Love on a Rooftop (1966-67 on ABC) and He & She (1967-68 on CBS), they were on different networks during different seasons.
