I Love Lucy aired for six seasons on CBS during the 1950s, but fans will be given a special Christmas treat next month. CBS News reported that the network plans to air a Christmas special on December 23.
The series will air two episodes of the series without interruption at 8 p.m. on CBS. The two episodes set to air are “The Christmas Episode” and “Lucy Does A TV Commercial.” It will be the first time that a colorized version of the latter episode will air on television.
CBS News shared the plot for both of these episodes.
“”The Christmas Episode” will follow the Ricardos and Mertzes as they decorate Lucy and Ricky’s Christmas tree and talk about how their lives changed after Little Ricky was born. The episode will revisit the time Lucy ended up as part of a barbershop quartet and the day Lucy told Ricky she was having a baby. The episode was first broadcast on CBS in December 1956 and was considered “lost” for many years until CBS re-aired it in 1989.
In “Lucy Does a TV Commercial,” Lucy is excited to have the chance to do a commercial for a health tonic called Vitameatavegamin. The problem is, the tonic contains 23 percent alcohol, which makes her a little sloppy as she rehearses. The episode is one of the most famous from the series.”
