my favorite was the one where they were driving across country to california, and they stopped to spend the night in a cabin by the railroad track, Every time a train went by, the beds moved. One time Ethel came out of the bathroom with toothpaste all over her face, The double bed had springs that sank in the middle. It was a hoot.
This is really difficult to answer, but I'll go with the first one I thought of.....that was the episode when Ricky and Fred taught Lucy and Ethel the ways and rules of Golf.......and of course, the girls discovered the scam and turned the tables on the guys........They were all very funny episodes.....good memories.
All the episodes mentioned here are great! One of my favorite episodes is "The Audition". It showcased Desi as a fantastic musician, and showed off Lucy's physical comedy skills. They were a great team together, and they always complemented each other in scenes.
They sure are Maria-Arg. That episode seems familiar, was it the one where she acts like a trained seal? Its also something to imagine that Desi and Lucy had to take the show on the road first to convince the network people would accept Desi!
Yes, it's the one where she acts as a trained seal. I laugh out loud every time I see that routine. I too read something about Desi and Lucy going on tour to prove that people would be okay with Desi. They def proved the execs wrong!
Veta-vita and the candy factory seem to be the winners so far Donna, a bit surprised no one mentioned the grape stomping episode as a fave- Lucy and the other grape lady got into a REAL tussle on that one! And oh, and it was Lucy's all-time fave!
I gotta say, I too love them all. But my very favoritest, the very bestest, in my opinion is the Vetavitavegimen one. I laugh the more intoxicated she becomes. She was such a comedic artist. Slapstick at it's finest. I like some of the comediennes of today, but so many resort to vulgarity rather than focusing on the humorous side of everyday life.
After carefully weighing all the awesome episode contenders the vetavitavegimen I Love Lucy classic is hereby declared the winner-- for now! Thanks Terri- so right about then and now with the vulgarity factor. Wonder what that says?
They are at that hbentlymom. One more vote for the present winner--vitametavegamin! President Eisenhower actually called Lucy and Desi to congratulate them on having more viewers for their babies birth than his first TV speech on another channel!
