I Love Lucy - The Complete First Season
Desi Arnaz and Lucille Ball




Overview -
I LOVE LUCY debuted on CBS in 1951 and quickly set a new standard for situation comedy with its well-crafted plotlines, live tapings, multiple camera angles, and one of the finest ensemble casts in television history. Centered around the domestic life of zany redhead Lucy Ricardo (Lucille Ball) and her Cuban-born husband Ricky (Lucy's real-life spouse Desi Arnaz), the series also broke cultural ground by featuring an interracial marriage and a female lead that was less than the perfect housewife. Indeed, it was Lucy's neverending quest to muscle in on her husband's show business career--often with the help of meddlesome next-door neighbors Fred (William Frawley) and Ethel Mertz (Vivian Vance)--that provided the show its main comedic thrust and continues to lend it a timelessly classic appeal. This collection presents the "lost" pilot plus all 35 original episodes from the groundbreaking first season, including "Lucy Does a TV Commercial," "The Freezer," "The Ballet," "The Fur Coat," and many more.
