Trivia

Near the end of the series, William Frawley and Vivian Vance who didn't get along with each other were offered their own spin-off series. William Frawley was all for doing it but Vivian Vance turned it down because she didn't want anything more to do with him. Plus she thought it wouldn't work anyway without the dynamic Lucille Ball provided. See more »

Quotes

Ricky Ricardo: I'm terrible at remembering names.
Tallulah Bankhead: Oh, so am I. That's why I call everybody darling.

A enjoyable way to spend Saturday night
16 November 1999 | by See all my reviews

I have to add that Lucille Ball in these one-hour shows is very attractive. The comedy is fresh and almost as enjoyable as the chocolate-eating scene from I Love Lucy. Predictable but very enjoyable is an appropriate way to describe this comedy. In addition to a cast of celebrities, there are some great scenes with chickens, horses, donkeys, and little Fred (a dog).

Each episode has a unique twist to it: a snowball fight with Danny Thomas, a horse race with Betty Grable, a chance to ice skate with Fernando Lamas.

It is a great way to spend a Saturday night.
