Product Description

Amazon.ca

This sixth volume of I Love Lucy's brilliant first season includes the charming "The Young Fans," in which a teenage girl (Janet Waldo, the future voice of Judy Jetson) develops a crush on nightclub star Ricky Ricardo (Desi Arnaz), prompting the latter's zany spouse Lucy (Lucille Ball) to help the girl's cast-off boyfriend (Richard Crenna) try to win her back. The problem: the moony boy falls for Lucy instead. "New Neighbors" finds Lucy and best pal Ethel Mertze (Vivian Vance) in familiar snoop mode, misinterpreting a dramatic rehearsal and concluding that a plot to murder the Ricardos is underway. "Fred and Ethel Fight" concerns Lucy and Ricky inviting the feuding spouses to dinner, unbeknownst to either of the Mertzes, while "The Moustache" involves Lucy's effort to embarrass Ricky into shaving but inadvertently sealing a false beard to her own face. Not indispensable episodes, but essential for Lucy completists. --Tom Keogh

The second half of season one was certainly stronger, as these four episodes demonstrate.
Unfortunately, this disc starts with a weak episode. "The Young Fans" finds both Ricky and Lucy with crushes from young neighbors. Fred and Ethel are completely missing (a common complaint of mine early on) and I find the ending unbelievable. Fortunately, the other three episodes are much better.
"New Neighbors" finds Lucy thinking he's over heard a plot to kill her and Ricky when she spies on the new tenants. This episode is hysterical, especially for Lucy's impersonation of a chair.
When "Fred and Ethel Fight," Lucy and Ricky get caught in the middle. And after the Mertzes have made up, it's the Ricardos who aren't speaking to each other.
Lastly, "The Moustache" finds Lucy trying to get Ricky to shave only to wind up with a beard herself. This episode features some truly funny facial expressions from a frustrated Lucy.
This DVD is a collector's dream. The episodes are presented in their entirety, and they look and sound sharp. There are occasional flaws in the picture, but considering the source material is 50 years old, it really isn't bad at all. The sound is presented in mono. While it won't challenge your sound system, it serves the purpose well and is faithful to the original audio recording. The extras this time around feature two original openings since they changed starting with "New Neighbors." Also included are the now familiar guest cast info, trivia, mistakes, and episode of "My Favorite Husband."
While not an ideal way to be released, it's wonderful to have these shows on DVD. I can't get enough Lucy, and this disc will be played many times at my house.

I am just about fed up and at my wits end with Studios releasing these partial "sets". You know, you've seen several studios doing it: putting 4 or 5 helter-skelter episodes from a particular year or years on a DVD rather than boxing the entire season in chronological order. To say that they nickle and dime you to death by these underhanded practices wouldn't be so bad if indeed we were talking about "nickles and dimes", however, we are talking about major tens, twenties, fifties, and hundreds of dollars to fully complete these series. The unabashed greed of the Studios, represented by putting a measley four episodes per DVD is appalling. I Love Lucy is certainly not the first and only show that is doing this, but that hardly makes it any more palletable. Speaking for myself, but with certainly many, many more movie and TV buffs like myself sharing this opinion, I refuse to be lurred in to buying these partial sets any more, only to discover months later that the studio has put out the individual full seasons in chronological order. Listen, I'm not going to say that series' such as M*A*S*H, Cheers, Frazier, All in the Family, and The Simpsons are any better than I Love Lucy, but they are brilliant in their own right, and they all put out full-season box sets and I have every one of them, just as I would have I Love Lucy if they were available, but I cannot allow myself to be ripped off any more. So if any of you Studio "heads" (and I'm being kind in not using a more appropriate body part here) are listening - you will get zilch from me from this point forward until you live the words of Spike Lee and "Do the Right Thing".Read more ›

I LOVE LUCY continues on DVD with the 6th volume of episodes from the historic first season.
"The Young Fans" - Ricky and Lucy unwittingly become embroiled in the love-lives of two teenagers (Janet Waldo and Richard Crenna). It's up to Lucy to take drastic action!...
"New Neighbors" - A new couple moves into the building. As usual, Lucy and Ethel snoop around to find out all their secrets, but a misunderstanding leads them to believe that the neighbors are Russian spies!
"Fred and Ethel Fight" - The Mertzes are having a rough patch in their marriage, so Ricky and Lucy decide to get them back together - and almost break up themselves!!
"The Moustache" - In order to get Ricky to shave off his new moustache, Lucy glues on a fake beard...with disastrous results!
Starring Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, Vivian Vance and William Frawley. The DVD includes flubs, guest-cast information, a bonus episode of the "My Favorite Husband" radio show, production notes and restored elements. (Single-sided, single-layer disc).

The sixth volume of I Love Lucy's first season features episodes 20-23, which are all favorites of mine, especially "The Young Fans." Although, like many other people, I wish they would release season-by-season DVDs, this is still a must have collection. Lucy's brand of humor and physical gags transcends time and it shows on this set.
"The Young Fans" (aired 2/25/52)- When Peggy (Janet Waldo), a teenaged girl, develops a huge crush on Ricky, Lucy decides to have a talk with a friend of Peggy's named Arthur (Richard Crenna), in hopes that the two will get interested in each other. The plan backfires and the boy becomes infatuated with Lucy. The Ricardos then decide to dress up as ninety-year-olds, hoping to diminish the love-struck teenagers' crushes.
"New Neighbors" (aired 3/3/52)- Lucy and Ethel are dying to check out the new neighbors' apartment, but Ricky forbids her to set a foot in the O'Brien's place. Of course, that doesn't stop Lucy from sneaking in on her hands and knees. When she overhears the couple rehearsing for a play, she assumes they're planning to take over the government.
"Fred and Ethel Fight" (aired 3/10/52)- While trying to patch things up between the Mertzes after they've had a fight (Fred: "She said my mother looks like a weasel!" Lucy: "Ethel... apologize!" Ethel: "I'm sorry your mother looks like a weasel."), Lucy and Ricky begin fighting over who apologized first in their last argument.
"The Mustache" (aired 3/17/52)- Ricky has been growing a mustache for a movie he wants to audition for, but Lucy hates it. To make him shave, she borrows a fake beard from Fred and puts it on with what she thinks is spirit gum. When Ricky finally breaks down and shaves, Lucy tries to take her beard off and then realizes it's been glued on with Bulldog cement!
