When the series was first rerun in syndication in 1968, all episodes featured the season 4 opening sequence. These versions were also syndicated in the 1990s. When show was syndicated in the 1970s, the original versions were used. See more »
The black and white episodes were the funniest of the entire series. Maybe this has to do with Vivian Vance, who was better here than in the "I Love Lucy" show. I always thought that Viv was the glue that held those earlier episodes together. Who could ever forget the episode about "Crazy Crunch" or of the Christmas episode about "Chris Crinkle".
