I Love Lucy

I Love Lucy
-American TV show starring Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, Vivian Vance and William Frawley.
-Ran from Oct. 15, 1951-May 6, 1957

-Originally set in New York
-Centers on Lucy Ricardo(Lucille Ball) and her singer/bandleader husband Ricky Ricardo(Desi Arnaz), along with their friends Fred Mert(William Frawley) and Ethel Mertz(Vivian Vance)
-During season 2, Lucy and Ricky have a little boy named Ricky Ricardo Jr. whose birth was timed to coincide with Ball's real life delivery of her son Desi Arnaz Jr. by Caesarean section.
-Lucy is naive, and ambitious, with an overactive imagination and a knack for getting into mischeif. She is best known for her fiery red hair, and appears as a scatterbrained housewife/homemaker with the uncanny ability to turn even the simplest household chore into a disaster.
-Her husband Ricky is an up-and-coming Cuban American singer and bandleader. When he's angry, he often speaks in rapid Spanish.

-Lucille Ball: Lucille Esmeralda "Lucy" McGillicuddy Ricardo
-Desi Arnaz: Enrique Alberto "Ricky" Ricardo
-Vivian Vance: Ethel Mae Roberta Louise Potter Mertz
-William Frawley: Frederick "Fred" Hobart Edie Mertz
My 2 favorite episodes are:

Lucy Does a TV Commercial
-Lucy is hired to do a commericial for a health medicine called "Vitameatavegimin", a health tonic that contains meat, vegetables, minerals and 23% alcohol, which she doesn't notice at first. Throughout the episode, she gets progressively drunker on it.

Job Switching
-Lucy and Ethel get jobs in a candy factory packaging candy on a conveyor belt. The work seems easy at first, but then the pace picks up and they get farther behind.

  2. What episode is the picture that Lucy is holding all the money
