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

CBS cut approximately four minutes out of each episode (to allow for more commercials) when they prepared the 16mm television syndication prints. Much of this was accomplished by simply cutting footage from the beginning and end of scenes. See more »
The regular tenants in the Mertzes' apartment house are the Mertzes, the Ricardos, Mrs. Trumbull, the Fosters, the Bensons, and there's at least another apartment temporarily rented out to the Johnsons, and other guest characters. Unless the apartment house was expanded into adjacent houses (which is never confirmed or denied), there is no way one brownstone could contain at least six of these middle-class 1-2 bedroom apartments.

[Ricky and Lucy are doing a show together]
I've got a joke you never heard in your life. I know a girl who's so dumb she thinks a football coach has four wheels. Ha ha ha.
[Audience is silent]
How many wheels does it have?

This was the show that truly invented the situation comedy. Lucy was the show that truly put forth a situation each week and built a plot around it. Whether it was switching jobs, breaking into show business or just getting into trouble, Lucy and Ricky were just the couple for this show. I always enjoy watching it whenever its on, especially the episodes from the "Little Ricky" era. This show is a timeless classic that will always span the generations.
