Bandleader Ricky Ricardo would be happy if his wife Lucy would just be a housewife. Instead, she constantly tries to perform at his club, the Tropicana, and make life comically frantic in the apartment building they share with landlord and best friends, Fred and Ethel Mertz.Written by

William Frawley and Vivian Vance in reality, deeply hated each other. On the show, displays of affection were forced. The main reason that the series lasted for six seasons was the cash bonus each one received, immediately, once both signed their name to an additional CBS contract. See more »
When the Ricardos are moving to the country, Lucy is standing for the last time in the apartment and talks about how she will miss the place since they lived in that apartment for 15 years. However they had only lived there for 4 years. Prior to that they were in the other apartment in the same building. See more »
In reruns of the series, much of the music in the beginning and end of scenes were altered or cut to make way for more commercials. Where possible, many of these musical bridges and cues have been fully restored for the DVD release. See more »
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.
