The Ricardo's Connecticut neighbors, the Ramsey family, (Ralph, Betty or their son, Bruce), appear in nine of the final thirteen episodes of I Love Lucy (1951). Lucy seems to develop a relationship with Betty Ramsey (sometimes to Ethel's disapproval, most likely because Betty Ramsey and Ethel Mertz were elementary school classmates, in Albaquerque, New Mexico, thirty to forty years earlier) plus their sons, Ricky Ricardo & Bruce Ramsey become friends. However, during The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour (1957) the Ramsey family was dropped, and their names are only mentioned twice, as babysitters for Little Ricky. See more »
A crucial scene from episode 2 of season 1, _"The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour" (1957) "The Celebrity Next Door" (#1.2)_, has been omitted on TV broadcasts as well as from the video version, even from the so-called complete prints titled "We Love Lucy". Fred gets splattered with strawberry pie, he retreats to the kitchen with Ethel, and Lucy says how humiliated she is. Tallulah Bankhead quickly & personally said "Oh, forget it darling. This is my lucky night, I'm allergic to strawberries. They give me hives!" Lucy and Tallulah then banter back and forth for a moment. The tail end of this scene is missing in recent prints, where Ricky asks if Tallulah would like some coffee. This brief missing scene sets up what happens among the final scenes, where Tallulah Bankhead broke out in hives. See more »
Lucille Ball is the greatest comic of all time. All of Lucy's shows were fun, light, and campy. It was great to see Lucy, Ricky, Fred, Ethel, and then Lucy, Viv, Gale, the kids, and Mary Jane all acting together. Fans now have the complete series of I Love Lucy and The Lucy Desi Comedy Hour. I hope to see complete series releases of The Lucy Show, Here's Lucy, and Life With Lucy. All of these shows are important parts of Lucy's television history. If you haven't voted yet, please do so at tvshowsondvd.com. Maybe we will get some good news on a future release!! The more votes, the more fans can show their enthusiasm!! Can you imagine owning all the Lucy shows in your own collection?!?!?
