There are great guest stars in this last season that include the great Phil Silvers playing Ann's Uncle and Cloris Leachman playing Don's sister. For the second time, Ann's real life father, Danny Thomas appears in her show, and this time he does more than just a walk-on. Ann and her father Danny close this episode with a musical stage number! This last season closes with highlights of all 5 years of That Girl, while Ann and Don remember their favorite moments together, when they are trapped in an elevator. It's a fitting ending for such a wonderful series!
Here are the final seasons episodes from 113 to 136:
113.(9-25-1970) COUNTER PROPOSAL...After 4 years of dating, Donald pops the question.
114.(10-2-1970) DONALD, SANDY, HARRY AND SNOOPIE...Cloris Leachman guest stars as Donald's sister who is serious about a man Donald thinks is not good enough for her, so Donald sends Ann to spy on him.
115.(10-9-1970) I AIN'T GOT NOBODY...Ann finds her reputation tarnished when her photo suddenly turns up in Playpen Magazine's foldout, wearing nothing more than a staple.
116.(10-16-1970) NO MAN'S A MANHATTAN ISLAND...Ann appears on a game show Know Your Neighbor, and when she does poorly, decides to get to really know her neighbors.
117.(10-23-1970) RATTLE OF A SINGLE GIRL...Worried Ann wants pre-marital counseling.
118.(10-30-1970) THERE SURE ARE A BUNCH OF CARDS IN ST.LOUIS (Part 1)...Ann travels to St.Read more ›
It is filled with guest stars who are usually misused (Joe Flynn as Lew's brother? Seriously?). Look for Jennifer Aniston's dad in one episode, which is ironic since Marlo went on to play Jennifer's mom on Friends!
By the time it gets to the final episodes (about a bachelor party, horse racing and Ann picketing Newsview with an ecology group) Marlo Thomas is overacting to the point of hysteria, saying lines that are stupid and not funny. Sorry, That Girl lovers--don't claim every episode is great. The first four seasons were wonderful fun. This is a sad ending to a great series.
