    I agree the that the candy shop is a pretty good one. Either that one or the Vitametavegamin one are my faves. Both very memorable. I showed them to my kids and they loved them!

      The Vitametavegamin episode is in the top 5 here for sure sadie423. Same with the little niece and nephews loving them!

    I love them all.  My favorite season is the season when they move to the country. I love the episode where she gets stuck on a lawn tractor running amok.

    rebeccamealey is absolutely right...the candy factory is my favorite too!  I still watch the shows all the time on TV Land and laugh just as much now as I did the other 100 times I watched!!

    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.

      Hi fpher! You got one there i don't recall but your so right about nearly all the I Love Lucy's being funny and memorable. Some more than others but all winners!

    It has to be when she and Ethel are working in the candy factory. The conveyor belt comes by and they start stuffing candies e v e r y w h e r e...I laugh just thinking about it!!

      That one seems to be a favorite fave here- haha maybe 'cause many of us have been around automation in the workplace before; or perhaps its just because the episode is so awesome hilarious!

    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!

      Maria-Argposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      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!

    When Lucy got drunk on Veta-Vita-Vegimine while making a TV commercial.

      Alastar Packerposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      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!

    The candy mfg jobs- don't think I've laughed that hard at anything else!

    1. Alastar Packer profile image85
      Alastar Packerposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      That one seems to be the all-time winner so far Tey, as it well should be!

    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?

    The Vitametavegamin has to be my all time favorite followed by when Lucy goes to the hospital to have the baby. Really there are so many more!

      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!
