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 and Vivian Vance in reality, deeply hated each other. On the show, displays of affection were forced to be. The main reason that the series lasted for six seasons, was the cash bonus each one received, immediately, as both signed their name, to an additional CBS contract. 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 »
Did Ricky give you a tough day?
No, just the same as any other day: after breakfast, I put on his snow suit. I pull on his galoshes. I slip on his mittens. I walk him to the park. He chases the pigeons. I chase after him. He runs after the squirrels. I run after him. He get's on the swing. I push the swing. We go on the teeter-totter. He teeters, I totter. Then we leave the park and we walk home.

Lucille Ball changed television forever when "I Love Lucy" hit the air in 1951. It featured a woman as a main character, which was rare back during that time and age. And the fact that the woman did not listen to her husband often was even more controversial. Everything the show was was rebellious. It was also extremely controversial because her husband was Cuban, and back in the '50's, barely anyone married other races, and if so, the subject was definitely not the premise for a television show.
So, through the ages, I Love Lucy has had a major impact on generations, and has not slipped into culture like many shows, but has been accepted into culture. Not to mention all the Lucy impersonators who have pageants each and every year. But the thing I remember most, is the famous "Eeeooowww!"
