Made a pilot that wasn't picked up in 1976 called "Charo and the Sergeant" starring Dick Van Patten and Tom Lester. The premise was that she was driving her military husband to distraction by working at the Purple Pussy Cat Club as the cuchi-cuchi girl.

Around the world, I am known as a great musician. But in America, I am known as the cuchi-cuchi girl. That's okay because cuchi-cuchi has taken me all the way to the bank.
Cugat brought the then 16 year old Charo and her mother and sister to America on a student visa after he discovered her, but she had to return to Spain and wait two years to come back because she was a minor.
