Corny but funny

8/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This show is such a gem! Even when things are ridiculous - such as Lucy keeping a baby elephant in the bedroom and having it appear at the fadeout - we love the show so much that we simply don't care! Lucy and Ethel are sensational in their scenes in the Ricardo living-room shocking Ricky and Fred into thinking that they may indeed be crooked.

Fans of baby boomer telly will notice Mr. Wilson of "Dennis the Menace" show up: Joseph Kearns is a psychiatrist who's posing as Ricky's friend.

Lucy's Ginger Rogers ("The Major and the Minor") type baby talk is a hoot as is her treatment of Ethel and her collection of purses.

Timing is so great and essential to real comedy and this show had it all. In spades.

Nearly 60 years ago this show premiered on television; doubtless it will never go off the air: it'll 'outlive' all of us.

Lucy herself once stated: "It's a nice thing to leave the world": millions of us agree, dear Lucy!
