Roz & Marilyn Borden, the Borden Twins (pictured here with Vivian Vance, Lucille Ball, William Frawley, and Tennessee Ernie Ford), made an indelible appearance on I Love Lucy in 1955 as "Teensy and Weensy," on Episode No. 112, entitled "Tennessee Bound," with their song and dance number, "Ricochet Romance" -- a scene they re-created at the 50th Anniversary Lucy Reunion. The twins started their show business careers at the age of three, singing and chatting on Uncle Ed's Children's Hour, a local Hartford, Connecticut radio program hosted by Ed Begley, Sr. Their first network TV show was in 1952 with Spike Jones and his band. They also appeared on several Colgate Comedy Hour shows, including the Ed Wynn Show, where they first met their idol, Lucille Ball. In the 1950s they began a 7-year association with Jimmy Durante, appearing on many of his TV shows and traveling with his nightclub act. In the early 1960s, the twins were "Hotsy and Totsy" -- the namesakes of San Francisco's legendary Hotsy Totsy Club, and in the 1980s they traveled with Bob Newhart as part of his nightclub act. Their many TV appearances include Maude, Rhoda, The Ropers, CHiPs, The New Phil Silvers Show, Lottery, and Out of This World. Entertaining on cruise ships led them to their current avocation, as cruise ship tour leaders and cruise-travel agents through their company, The Borden Twins Cruise Tours.
