The Lucille Ball-Desi Arnaz Show information

I Love Lucy artJust picturing Lucille Ball is enough to bring a smile to most people’s faces. After all, the beloved comedienne made us laugh in five TV shows — I Love Lucy, The Lucille Ball-Desi Arnaz Show, The Lucy Show, Here’s Lucy, and Life with Lucy — as well as through dozens of TV specials, radio episodes, and more than 75 movies.

While Ball devoted much of her life to the art of performing, artist Henry LMRR most appreciates Ball as the subject for his art. He’s drawn Ball literally hundreds of times, filling sketch books and inscribing her likeness on everything from canvas to scrap notebook paper, an eraser, and even a bottlecap. He confesses that he just can’t enough of her immortal features.

LMRR began drawing Ball at the age of 10 after he saw “The Anniversary Present” episode from the second season of I Love Lucy. He says that he fell in love with her face and the paint just made her features all the more expressive.

I Love Lucy: Watch the Classic TV Show — Finally in Full Color!

December 14, 2008
I Love Lucy is one of the most beloved sitcoms of all time. Thanks to Desi Arnaz, the show was shot on film and the episodes look much better than other black and white shows from that era. But, have you ever wished that you could see Lucy and Ricky in color? I Love Lucy follows Lucy (Lucille Ball) and Ricky (Desi Arnaz) Ricardo. They're a middle-class couple who live in an NYC apartment, owned by friends Fred (William Frawley) and Ethel Mertz (Vivian Vance). Ricky's a bandleader at a local nightclub and Lucy will do anything to get into show business. Eventually, Lucy gives birth to a son, little Ricky (Richard Keith). The series ran for six seasons on CBS. Despite still being a top-rated show, Arnaz and Ball tired of the weekly grind. All of the characters transitioned to The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour which ran for three seasons as hour-long specials. In 1958, Arnaz offered to spin-off the Mertzes to their own show. Frawley was willing but Vance wasn't interested. That only deepened the long-standing distaste the two performers had for one another and they rarely spoke off-camera.
