Cuban Bandleader Ricky Ricardo would be happy if his wife Lucy would just be a housewife. Instead she tries constantly to perform at the Tropicana where he works, and make life comically frantic in the apartment building they share with landlords Fred and Ethel Mertz. The first major show to be put on film rather than kinescope. Written by

William Frawley was known to cover his ears backstage (or wear ear muffs or miniature ear plugs any time they were in the same scene together, on screen), whenever Vivian Vance sang a song, such as the time she sang "Shortnin' Bread" and Fred walked behind Ethel, carried five trees, (one at a time & each one got larger) as Lucy & Ricky were secretly and quietly were doing stunts behind Ethel, as she sang. This was event occurred while the four were on a trip west from New York to California and stopped for a day or two to rest in I Love Lucy: Ethel's Hometown (1955). It was well known that he deeply despised Vivian Vance's voice, especially when she sang a song. See more »
While Lucy is somewhat consistent in her lack of talent, Ethel at various times is shown to be excellent on the piano, as well as, having a very basic playing ability. In one episode, she plays 'Sweet Sue' and other songs while the group sings, but in various episodes where Lucy is trying to form a band, she is hopelessly inept on the instrument. See more »

Honeybunch, if the rest of you looked like that I wouldn't care if you were bald.

It's still the best television series ever created: still playing on about 4 channels all the time here in the Bay Area. Beautiful Lucille Ball is a master of line delivery and facial expressions, never topped. Vivian Vance has the best supporting role in TV history, a warm, funny, sympathetic character. Desi Arnaz offers the first known Latino-Caucasian pairing ever while William Frawley excels as Vance's husband. Almost all shows are classics, even the lesser known ones. Writing is outstanding, dealing with everyday problems that all can still relate to, never dating. Unlike other TV series, it's VERY SLOWLY being released to DVD, accenting its special status. TV Guide gave it a number 2 rating in its 100 greatest comedy television series (following "Seinfeld"). While "Seinfeld" should be in the Top 10, Lucy was and will always be the pinnacle best.
