This unaired pilot was considered lost, until Pepito Pérez's widow notified CBS that she owned the sole copy. It was given to Pepito Perez by Desi Arnaz and Lucille Ball as their show of gratitude for his performance, friendship and extremely humorous personalities, he acted as. See more »

In this city live Lucy and Ricky Ricardo. Of course, you know Ricky as the famous orchestra leader and singer. And Lucy is the famous, um, well she's... her hair is very red. And she's married to Ricky.

In 1990, a 16mm print of the original lost pilot episode was found. The opening titles and first few seconds of the opening narration was damaged beyond repair. This scene was reconstructed for DVD in 2002 with a re-recorded narration by Bob LeMond, 50 years after he originally recorded it. See more »
An obviously pregnant Lucille Ball joins her real-life husband to make this pilot for their new show, "I Love Lucy." The episode is not very well made and lacks the chemistry that their on-air shows have. I thought the clown was pretty freaky-looking and was very glad Lucy was able to take his place!
This pilot really sets up what the show will be like. Lucy always trying to get into acting, her husband trying to keep her out of it, and them fighting and making up. I really love these two together. I've read this show was formed to save their marriage. It's so sad that the on-screen chemistry these two shared was simply that - on-screen.
Of course, I always enjoy listening to Ricky sing...
