Product Description

They say all good things must come to an end, but the sixth and final season of I Love Lucy's leaves a hilarious legacy with this four-disc, must-have DVD set. Season Six of this classic television sitcom sees the Ricardos longing for a less-hectic life in the country, so they make plans to move to rural Connecticut . . . but not before Lucy leaves The Big Apple reeling with some riotous escapades. To help further her "showbiz" aspirations, Lucy attempts to get chummy with comedian Bob Hope at a baseball game – by masquerading as both a hot dog vendor and a tobacco-chomping pitcher. Then, with Little Ricky's birthday approaching, Lucy makes a superhuman effort to have Superman (George Reeves) appear at the festivities. And only Lucy could somehow wind up with jockey Johnny Longden's loving cup stuck firmly on her head! Will life in rural Connecticut be more tranquil? Well, not when Lucy believes that her wedding ring has fallen into the mortar Ricky has used to build a new patio barbecue. And in one of the funniest TV episodes ever, Lucy learns the hard way that you shouldn't put all your eggs in one basket …er, um … blouse! Here are all 27 "Final Season" episodes of I Love Lucy – television's timeless, unforgettable comedy series.

The sixth and final season of I Love Lucy finds new laughs in some old formulas while also expanding the hugely popular show’s horizons with a change of scene. Things get off to a familiar start when Lucy Ricardo (Lucille Ball) gets in the middle of husband Ricky’s business--in this case, disguising herself as a hot dog salesman at Yankee Stadium in order to get near Bob Hope. Hope, she believes, has ignored Ricky’s offer to be the first act at his new nightclub. But, in fact, Hope had already agreed; Ricky was just sitting on the information to keep Lucy from getting typically ditzy in front of one of his celebrity pals. Not surprisingly, mayhem follows when poor Hope finds his hand slathered with condiments and his noggin bonked by a foul ball. Other celebrity sightings include Orson Welles, who copes with Lucy’s aspirations as a Shakespearean actress, and George Reeves, television’s Superman, who shows up unexpectedly, in costume, at Little Ricky’s birthday party. Meanwhile, Lucy--who didn’t want to disappoint the tyke--stands in a makeshift Man of Steel outfit on a window ledge, in the rain.

A number of episodes concern Little Ricky (Keith Thibodeaux) now that he’s old enough to be a functioning character on the show. In "Little Ricky Learns to Play the Drums," the lad takes after his musician father and starts playing percussion, leading to some frayed nerves. A couple of episodes later, young Ricardo gets a bad case of stage fright at school, and Lucy suggests Ricky let him play the drums at the nightclub. (But then, of course, she has to figure out how to talk her son into performing.) A big change comes to I Love Lucy in the season’s second half, when the Ricardos decide it’s time to become homeowners and pull up stakes at their old Manhattan apartment. Moving to a nice, new house in Connecticut, they’re soon joined by Fred (William Frawley) and Ethel (Vivian Vance), and the season’s storylines take on a distinctly suburban flavor, with country clubs, barbecues, and gardens figuring into the comedy. With those developments, I Love Lucy came to a close after making television history as a much-beloved sitcom. Lots of special features, including multiple audio commentaries, flubs, lost scenes, and five episodes of My Favorite Husband, Ball’s radio show. --Tom Keogh

Over 50 years ago during the early years of broadcast television, the very inspired talents of Lucille Ball (1911-1989) and her then husband Desi Arnaz (1917-1986) were showcased on their hilarious television show "I Love Lucy". TV execs had initially rejected the plausibility of the show because of Desi and because they intended to tape the shows. However, thanks to the tireless efforts of Lucille Ball and Desi's obvious talents, the show first aired in 1951 and quickly became one of the most successful TV shows during all six of its regular seasons. As Lucy and Ricky Ricardo on "I Love Lucy", Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz were joined by William Frawley (1877-1966) and Viviane Vance (1909-1979) as their best-friends/apartment landlords of Fred and Ethel Mertz.

The sixth & final season of "I Love Lucy" that aired between 1956 and 1957 had 26 memorable episodes and one special:

1. "Lucy and Bob Hope": After Lucy spots Bob Hope (himself, 1903-2003) at a baseball game, she attempts to contact him by pretending to be a hotdog vendor and a pitcher.

2. "Little Ricky Learns to Play the Drums": Thump. Thump. Thump, thump, thump. Little Ricky (Keith Thibodeaux) learning to play the drums starts to drive everyone crazy; including Fred & Ethel with his persistent rhythm.

3. "Lucy Meets Orson Welles": After Lucy gets to perform with Orson Wells (himself, 1915-1985) at the Tropicana, she tries to turn his magic-act into Shakespeare to impress her old drama teacher in the audience.

4. "Little Ricky Gets Stage Fright": Little Ricky appears fine before he debuts his drumming skills in front of an audience, but then panics immediately before the show.

This season ends the traditional syndicated 30 minute intervals of America's favorite red head. (of course to follow are the lucy-desi comedy hour and we love lucy). This season has some of the funniest moments in the span of I Love Lucy's run. Funniest moment? Lucy carrying a dozen unhatched chicken eggs across the living room in her blouse to try to hide them from Ricky.
To recap,

1. Lucy And Bob Hope-
Sighting Bob Hope at a baseball game, Lucy hopes to convince him to appear at Desi's club. To get closer to him, she disguises herself as a hot dog vendor, then as a tobacco-chewing pitcher.

2. Little Ricky Learns To Play The Drums (Hilarious!)
Little Ricky's non-stop drum playing threatens the Ricardos' and Mertzes' friendship.

3. Lucy Meets Orson Wells
Lucy wangles a job as Orson Welles's assistant when he appears at Ricky's club. He's doing a magic act, but Lucy's doing Shakespeare!

4. Little Ricky Gets Stage Fright
Little Ricky gets stage fright before his first school music recital.

5. Visitor From Italy
When the Venetian gondolier the Ricardos met in Europe shows up in New York, a series of mishaps result in Lucy working at a pizza parlor.

6. Off To Florida
Driving to Florida to meet their husbands, the girls share the drive with a strange lady they mistakenly think is an ax murderess.

7. Deep Sea Fishing
On a deep-sea fishing trip, the boys bet the girls that they'll catch bigger fish.

8. Desert Island
Lucy and Ethel's scheme to prevent the boys from judging a beauty contest leaves the Ricardos and the Mertzes marooned on a desert island.

In season four Lucy goes to Hollywood and in season five she goes to Europe. So this season, she gives up city life to live in the suburbs.

The transition is handled well with a reason to bring Fred and Ethel along. And Mary Jane Croft becomes a regular and will become Lucy's long time partner in crime in future sereies after Vivian Vance retires.

The season begins in New York and features guests Bob Hope and Orson Welles. Then the gang goes to Florida and Elsa Lanchester makes a great guest appearance. The trip ends with a visit Havana and Lucy wreaking havoc at Ricky's uncle's cigar factory. The gang returns to NYC for a few more episodes that includes a visit from Superman.

For the last half of the season Lucy decides to move to Connecticutt. This gives a whole new group of adventures for the gang to embark on. Lucy decideds to raise chickens but learns it is not so simple. The boys build a barbecue and the girls tear it apart. Lucy has fun making her garden grow. And look for Barbara Eden at the country club dance.

At the end of the season, Lucy and Desi's marriage was on the rock and so they ended the series ad did a series of one hour specials.

I Love Lucy is a classic of early television. And since this was the first show to be filmed on stock instead of kinescope, these DVD's are crystal clear. The one thing is to watch for the really fake backgrounds. When they were broadcast on small non-digtal scenes, they looked real but with the new technology, you will see backgrounds that look fake but that is part of the charm of old shows.

Well six seasons down and let's look for the eleven Lucy and Desi Hours!
