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

CBS executives balked heavily at the casting of William Frawley, owing to his reputation as an alcoholic and general rabblerouser. After his hiring, Desi Arnaz informed him that if he came to work drunk or missed work for anything besides a genuine illness more than one time, he'd be written out of the show.
Frawley never arrived at filming drunk or impaired, and typically learned his lines quicker than the other series regulars. He and Arnaz became and remained close friends, even years after the show ended production. 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 »

No, I just implied that she was a little hippy... though she has got the biggest potamus I've ever seen.

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.
