Lucy has angled her way onto Ricky's special as the show's pitch girl. She advertises a medicine called "Vitameatavegamin." Believing it contains vitamins, minerals, meat, and vegetables, Lucy does ...
Widower Sheriff Andy Taylor, and his son Opie, live with Andy's Aunt Bee in Mayberry, North Carolina. With virtually no crimes to solve, most of Andy's time is spent philosophizing and calming down his cousin Deputy Barney Fife.
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

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 »
I refuse to go anywhere with someone who thinks I am a hippopotamus.
Lucy, is this true?
No, I just implied that she was a little hippy... though she has got the biggest potamus I've ever seen.

Many references to the sponsor, Philip Morris, were cut from the original negatives of episodes circa 1956. The DVD releases attempt to restore as many of these as possible using whatever source material exists. See more »
When I was a child of 9 I remember my parents watching the Horace Heidt musical show on Mondays at 9PM. When the show was cancelled the new I Love Lucy started in the fall of 1951. It was very funny and was the talk of everyone. Now over 50 years later I am still watching it in the repeats. Sadly, all the stars have passed on. The one thing that my wife and I notice now that we did not notice before was how cheap Fred and Ethel were. They were really "moochers". They could have donated something to the cost of trips, remodeling etc. One bizzare note is that Horace Heidt and Desi Arnaz both died on the same day.
