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

Desi Arnaz invented the rerun during the pregnancy episodes of the series by re-playing some episodes (and change some of the scenery and lines) from the first season to give Lucille Ball time to rest and start to raise their new born son, Desi Arnaz Jr.. 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 »

The famous opening credit sequence, where the names appear over a heart, was not a part of the original series run. Originally, various cartoons related to the show and the show's sponsor were used. The version everyone knows today was created for syndication. TV Land "restored" the original opening for its broadcasts. However, the references to the sponsor were replaced with a TV Land logo; as such these openings have only been seen on telecasts on said network, and by the early-2010s, TV Land started reinstating the "heart" credits on its reruns.

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.
