September 23, 1968
"Lucy tonight!" I reminded my mom as I ate breakfast before going to school. "Lucy tonight!" I reminded my mom as we ate dinner. "LUCY IS COMING ON!" I yelled throughout the house so everyone will come to the living room and watch Lucy with me. Finally, the show started - "Look! they made a Lucy a puppet - she is soooo pretty! Mom, can I have one?" Then I saw him...my heart went pitter patter...I ran up to the TV set, pointed to the Desi Arnaz, Jr and exclaimed, "When I get older, I'm going to marry him!" As I went back to my chair, everyone was giggling. "Oh man," I thought, "I missed a funny part of the show!"
If you love Desi, Jr. - this is a must have item! - Four DVDs ~ 24 episodes ~ Famous Guest Stars ~ Bonus Features
This is a great DVD Collection even though Desi is not in all episodes. In addition to the 24 celebrity filled episodes getting into hilarious situations with our favorite redhead, it also features Lucie & Desi Jr commentaries, blooper reel, rehearsal footage, audience warm-up and more!
It was a dark day in my little world when I found out that Desi did not renew his contract after the third season. Season Three received the highest ratings (#3) during the entire run of Here's Lucy and after Desi left the show, Here's Lucy was never in the Top Ten in the Nielsen Ratings again.
Desi's Jr full name
is Desiderio Alberto Arnaz IV
and was the first person to
appear on TV Guide.

Other TV Appearances by Desi Arnaz Jr.
Desi sings with two others ~ Dino & Billy
Boys! Boys! Boys!
When I found out Desi was in rock band before he joined Here's Lucy - I was on a hunt for their albums. Luckily, when I sneaked into my older sister's bedroom, I found a couple of their albums way in the back. My next quandry was - how to get them from her bedrooom to mine bedroom so I could play them my record player. I already did wrong by going into her room and rummaging about. I did the only thing I could do - tell mom what I did and hope for the best. After the yelling, screaming and crying, I was listening to the sounds of Dino, Desi & Billy.

Desi Arnaz Jr made a cameo appearance in episode #179 "The Ricardos Dedicate a Statue" This a great episode (well, I think they are ALL great!) - it is Yankee Doodle Day in Connecticut and Lucy breaks a the statue of a Revolutionay War hero. After finding out it will take approx 2 weeks to have a replacement made, Lucy becomes a living statue - she almost pulled it off during the ceremony until Little Ricky's dog licked her face.
If you look at the crowd seen near the end of the episode, you will see Desi, Jr, age 4, and his big sister Lucie near Ethel. Ethel turns to them as asks, "Are you having a good time, honey?"
I Love Lucy ~ Classic TV Sitcom ~ Always funny
You can't stop at one episode!
As far back as I remember, I have always watched I Love Lucy. Whenever I am channel surfing, I always stop and exclaim, "Oh look - this is a good one!" and watch it like it was the first time. I love the I Love Lucy marathons on TV Land and watch each episode like I am viewing it for the first time. Great sitcom that stands the test of time.
