L is for Lucy Ricardo



Welcome to the A to Z Blogging Challenge where I will post on a word
featuring a different letter of the alphabet each day of the month of April.
My theme for this challenge is Female TV Characters.



Lucy Ricardo - "I Love Lucy"

THE STORY: Lucy is married to night club singer Ricky Ricardo. They live in an apartment in New York City and their landlords, Fred and Ethel Mertz, are their best friends.


UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL: Lucy isn't content to be "just a housewife." She wants to be in show business. She's always begging Ricky to let her be in one of his shows at the Club Tropicana. Never mind that she can't sing and she can't act. Despite her delusions of grandeur, she wants to be a good wife so she schemes to save money by sewing clothes, perming her own hair and baking bread, with disastrous results.


What's your favorite Lucy episode?

I Love Lucy is my absolute favorite show! I named my dog Lucy because I love it so much. My favorite episode is probably the one where Lucy goes to the hospital to have Little Ricky, but the all are so good. Thanks for sharing!

Happy A-Zing!

I grew up with Lucy and had many hours of laughing. This one in the picture is about a vitamin drink that makes her drunk. That may be my fav or the one where she has to sort chocolates and gets behind so she eats them. Also there is one where she is cutting out a dress pattern on the carpet and cuts a hole in the carpet the shape of a dress.

There was an episode where she had a loving cup [silver trophy] stuck on her head. Loved that one.

Of course "L" had to be for Lucy! My all-time favorite show. There are so many episodes I love but the Vitameatavegamin one ranks near the top!

Jessica: I love that episode. It was so funny how Ricky, Fred and Ethel had practiced what to do when Lucy went into labor. They had everything under control and times perfectly. But when it finally happened, chaos ensued. Hilarious.

Hi, Cat: Thanks for stopping by!

Belle: There are so many funny episodes. I think this was the funniest show ever. It's amazing how it's still funny today even though the show was from the 1950s.

M Pax: I loved that episode. So funny!

Dusty: That was a classic episode. No one could have pulled that off but Lucy.

I love Lucy too - just like Ricky. It was all over TV as I was growing up - and it was always worth a watch. One of my favorite pop culture moments came when Crocodile Dundee (in the original movie) is talking to his lady friend about a TV in his hotel room and says "I saw a TV once. Joe Australianbloke had one." Then he clicks the TV on and I Love Lucy comes up. "Yep, that's what I saw." and he clicks the TV back off. Hilarious!
