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!
