She did lend her voice to an episode of the series "The Governor & J.J." in 1970, but her only other major on-camera appearances - outside of sparse interviews - were hosting gigs related to her love of animals: "The Pet Set" (1971) and "Doris Day's Best Friends" (1985-1986).
Best known for her wistful song "Que Sera, Sera", Day passed away surrounded by close friends at her home near Carmel Valley, California, the Doris Day Animal Foundation said in a statement to The Associated Press. The news of the film icon's death broke on May 13 and was confirmed by the Doris Day Animal Foundation, which she established in 1978.
In her 1976 tell-all autobiography, Doris Day: Her Own Story, Day described her squeaky-clean reputation as "unfortunate".
The more you think about Doris Day, it seems, the less you know.
Day's signature song was "Que Sera Sera", a attractive tune made even better with her voice. Instead, her last film was With Six You Get Egg Roll in 1968. "The Doris Day Show" was a moderate success in its 1966-1973 run on CBS. Husband No. 3 was agent Martin Melcher, who mismanaged her fortune and left her in debt when he died.
In her autobiography, Day recalled her son Terry Melcher, telling her that the $20 million she had earned had vanished and she owed around $450,000, mostly for taxes.

During her career and retirement, Day always seemed to adhere to the philosophy of her biggest hit, "Que Sera, Sera, ' which she initially opposed as a 'kiddie song" but which became her signature tune. She was a lifelong animal lover and an advocate for animal welfare.
We will, Ms. Day, and we will miss you terribly.
She soon became a performer on local radio and then joined a swing band. She stayed with him the whole time, didn't she?
Born to a music teacher and a housewife in Cincinnati, she had dreamed of a dance career, but at age 12 suffered a crippling accident: A vehicle she was in was hit by a train and her leg was badly broken. It's a marvelous role for Day, and she's wonderful to watch. There were a few would-be comebacks in the early 80s that never came to be, including a "Pillow Talk" sequel.
Or as one-time co-star Oscar Levant famously joked, 'I knew Doris Day before she was a virgin'. "She had a heart of gold and was a very amusing lady who I shared many laughs with". "She could sing light or strong in any part of her range".
