Lucy Does a Commercial - for Vitametavegamin of course!

alycep said...

By far my favorite episode was one you do not see often. It was the one when they were driving to California and could not find a place to stay and wound up in this beat up old cabin next to the railroad tracks. Their experiences there made me laugh so hard every time that I cry. You do not see silly comedy like that anymore!

jkebeans said...

Lucy and company in Hollywood is some of the best episodes ever..and I love it when she meets harpo..also a great one is the one with William Holden..and her fake nose catches on fire..There are so many great ones!

catriona_sweeps said...

I loved the episode where Lucy was mashing the grapes for wine and she and another masher got into a tussle.

Allen McLeod said...

I remember Lucy stomping grapes in Italy on a later episode. Very funny. armlam@bellsouth.net

Sandra K321 said...

My favorite was the chocolate factory line where they couldn't keep up and had to keep eating the chocolate. Her expressions were priceless.

MOMFOREVERANDEVER said...

there are many, one is when they decided to buy the dress shop...or when lucy learned how to drive

McKim said...

I liked the episode with Harpo Marx where he was copying whatever she did.

Jane said...

I loved that show as a kids and would love to see it again. I guess one of the best was the chocolate factory.

Amber said...

The episode that really stands out in my mind is whe Lucy and Ethel are working at the chocolate factory and shoveling chocolate into their mouths - just too funny!
Thank you for the giveaway :)

There were so many good Lucy shows. I love the mirror skit with Harpo.

Jennifer, The Lady Riposter said...

I haven't seen this show in years but I remember one where she tried to sneak into Ricky's show by diverting the original dancer and she actually did alright! She always made me laugh!

kelvin said...

I liked the one where she stole John Wayne's footprints!

samsakara said...

I'm not sure of the name of the episode but love the one where she learns to drive. Lucy ended up deciding to take her friend driving and lucy some how managed to get both cars stuck together. It was funny watching her jump on the cars trying to get them un stuck.

Darlene said...

They are all so good, the grapes, the candy, Vitametavegamin,etc. How about the one where Lucy and Ethel are going to make money selling the salad dressing and then find they are losing money on every jar?

denyse said...

I loved the candy factory where they couldn't keep up and kept eating the candy.

Dree said...

My favorite episode is when Lucy is in California and her and Ethel steal John Wayne's footprints. It's my favorite because she mistakes his real prints and wipes them clean to make fake ones. It is hilarious and my favorite.

Dree said...

My favorite I Love Lucy episode is "Vitametavegamin". I love it when Lucy tries to say it while drunk.

jlafount said...

Job Switching. See those 2 try and keep up with the candy is funny visually

marthajane said...

I like the one where Ricky sets the bucket of water up to dump on Lucy's head when she comes in the door.
I love all the ones where she tries to pretend to be mad at Ricky and he just smirks, then they kiss at the end.

mail4rosey said...

I like the one where Lucy fell asleep over Little Ricky's crib and couldn't walk when she woke in the morning. I like it because I can relate!!! :)

supermax said...

when Lucy and Ethel were stomping the grapes - that was cool

wantsandwishes said...

Vitameatavegamin is by far my favorite. There are a number of others that hold my heart as well. It is hilarious. I laugh every time I watch it.

Mark Sierra at Darn Good Reviews said...

Gosh, there are so many entertaining episodes, it's hard to choose. I'd have to say one of my favorites is the one where Lucy dresses up as famous celebrities for her friend who couldn't see very well without her glasses. The best scene was when she was with Harpo Marx. Absolutely hilarious!

Tammy said...

My favorite is the one were Lucy gets drunk on Vite-Veganen juice

Amy G. said...

It's hard to pick just one favorite Lucy episode, but one of my faves has to be the Vitametavegamin commercial- tastes just like candy :).

dawns41 said...

This is really tough. I have a couple of Fav Lucy shows. My all time favorite is the Candy Show. When Lucy was shoveling all those candies into her mouth was totally hilarious.

dawns_horizen@yahoo.com

ky2here said...

Vitameatavegemin. Because (hic) wazzup? uh............

Kimberly L said...

On of my favorites was when they were all taking a road trip, and needed to take a rest from traveling -- ended up off the beaten path at a dive -- where they ate old stale cheese sandwiches, and stayed in a room where every time the train went by the beds would move, and also Ethel and Fred slept in a sunken bed and Ethel had to 'anchor' Fred in.

I grew up watching I Love Lucy and still love the show. It was a wonderful family show that we all enjoyed. I still laugh out loud when I see reruns of the candy factory when she stuffing all of the candy in her mouth.

Definitely the episode at the chocolate factory. I love watching them try to hide the unwrapped ones from their supervisor (in their hats, mouths, clothes, etc.)

Daniel M said...

the chocolates of course, instant classic - regnod(at)yahoo(d0t)com

007blond said...

I like the one where she meets John Wayne. This was one that didn't have Ricky, nor Ethel.
She goes to a watch JW do a shoot in a cowboy bar scene.When the fake fight breaks out,Lucy jumps in and starts hitting people over the head.

Jeff said...

Lucy and Ethyl working in the candy factory ...

Christina said...

Christina - xristya@rock.com - I love the adventures of Lucy and Ethel, and the time they worked at the candy factory was both scary and hilarious!

Jim W. said...

The chocolate factory was my favorite, just watching her jam all that candy in her mouth was hilarious.

turboterp said...

I love the episode in which Lucy tells Ricky she's "expecting" by passing him a note while he's performing. It's funny yet emotional, too!

Storm, The Psychotic Housewife said...

I know this is probably every one's, but the candy factory episode was just hysterical! It's the way I will always remember her. (They don't make tv like they used to, do they?)

My favorite I Love Lucy episode is the first night in their new home in Connecticut. They can't sleep because the silence is too loud. I love all the episodes after they move to the country, for some reason.

Jeremy said...

I haven't seen this show in so long, but my favorite episode was one in which Lucy got a job stomping grapes into wine. I was a kid and I just was astounded to learn that was the way wine had been made.

Princess Golden Hair said...

very hard to pick my favorite. I mean I loved her in the vinyard stomping around with the grapes. I loved her in the candy factory, and I loved when she sold vita-meta-vegimin, but i guess my favorite is still when she gave birth to little ricky

kygirl said...

"Lucy's Club Dance". Lucy's club had formed an all-girl orchestra, with Ricky helping them rehearse, but they were absolutely terrible! Then Marion Strong put an article about Ricky performing with the all-girl orchestra in the newspaper, and that's what Lucy didn't want Ricky to see. She even went down to the newstand to cut the article out of all the papers there, but a new stack of papers came in while Ricky was there, and he saw it. He ended up performing with members of his own band (the craggiest, lumpiest, least feminine-looking guys possible) dressed up as women. That scene was priceless!

guettel78 said...

I think my favorite episode would have to be "Lucy Is Enciente" because I think it's the episode with the most heart, especially the ending when Lucy reveals to Ricky that she's pregnant - so good! It might now have any classic comedic moments, but it's definitely the episode that's stuck with me all these years.

I love the episode where Lucy gets trapped on the ledge outside the apartment trying to make the others worry about her, but a neighbor calls Ricky and tells him Lucy is out there, so Ricky, Fred and Ethel begin to talk about how glad they are that Lucy is gone and the trick backfires on her...as usual.

I like the episode where she is stomping grapes in Italy. They really get into it. Email addy is in profile.

Pam said...

My favorite has to be one that is one of her most famous.....the candy factory. It's so funny just to watch how she and Ethel can't keep up with the line and so start putting them in their mouths, etc. No words....just the visual is hilarious. Thanks. I'd love to win this.
Thanks so much!

Lucy wants to be a star so badly--and the Vitametavegamin commercial is the funniest of those type of episodes!

I loved Ethyl her sidekick. That show was so great. I wish they still had shows like that so I could let my kids watch tv in the evenings. Now, I am scared to let my son watch tv at night because I don't know what it will expose him to.
