Disappointed. No interview with Keith Thibodeaux.
13 November 2001 | by (Lancaster, California) – See all my reviews

I was disappointed with the "I Love Lucy" 50th Anniversary Special. There are some things I wish they would have done, instead of what they did. First of all, they should have had Keith Thibodeaux, who played "Little Ricky" for four years, on the special. They did not have not one interview with him. To have had an interview with Keith Thibodeaux on the re-created set of "I Love Lucy" would have been wonderful. Perhaps seeing Doris Singleton ("Caroline Appleby") and Mary Jane Croft ("Betty Ramsey") sitting on the couch would have been nice too. If they wanted this special to be really informative they could have added a few interesting trivia notes and they could have shown the studios, as they look now, where the "I Love Lucy" pilot, the series, and the Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour was filmed. The first became part of the Channel 2 News newroom. Modern-day celebrities talking about that they watched "I Love Lucy" was a downside of the special. However, Dick Van Dyke as a host and interviewing Richard Crenna and the writers of "I Love Lucy" was appropriate.
