If You ‘Loved Lucy’ Here’s Some Fun Facts You’ll Adore!

*”I Love Lucy” was one of the funniest TV shows ever. The black-and-white series originally ran from October 15, 1951 to May 6, 1957 on CBS and it was one of the first such shows shot before a live audience.

According to FilmMakerIQ.com each show was shot in front of a live audience that included 300 viewers from the first shoot until the last.

Amazingly, there were a lot of “one take” scenes.

Later, Desi Arnaz, the real life husband of Lucille Ball, said the comedic actress works better when real people are watching her performance.

Everyone watched I Love Lucy — no matter what race or culture — we loved the shenanigans of that crazy redhead and the frustrations and gentle reprimands of her handsome Latin musician-husband, Ricky Ricardo.

But did you know that ‘Ricky Ricardo’ was not the original name the network came up with for Lucy’s hubby?

Uh-uh. They had something else in mind.

Do you think we would’ve felt the same about this Latin lover if his character was named Larry Lopez?

Let me get that for you…

Heck no!

There’s more never heard before FUN FACTS about ‘I Love Lucy’ and its incredible cast at EURThisNthat!

  1. Hmmm, 400 people die in Sierra Leone mudslide there an article about a show that did not have one black person on the entire time it was on get make the front news???.

  2. @Taurusinger…So sad that you don’t feel the need to ever ‘lighten up,’ — especially with all the pain and sadness going around the world today. Black people are not going to be on every TV show or in every film, and sadly, bad things will be happening to our people and others every single day. This is the tragedy of our world. Thank goodness for moments of laughter and fond memories…which I Love Lucy brings. And you are mistaken about no Black characters EVER being on the show. Although no one with a life has time to go through each and every episode, here is one short clip from a show you obviously missed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ru4blLpPC0M
