One of the world's most gifted comedians, loved by millions, Lucille Ball delivers side-splitting laughter.In this classic collection, Lucy portrays a scatterbrained secretary who always manages to be at the center of some madcap misadventure, in personal or working life.Lucy's comic genius is supported by a memorable regular cast, and a list of gueat stars featuring the greatest names in show business: Jack Benny, George Burns, Milton Berle, Carol Burnett, John Wayne, Don Rickles and many more.

First Telecast: October 1, 1962
Last Telecast: March 11, 1968

Tackling a television series on her own for the first time, Lucille Ball firmly established herself as the first lady of American television with this long running series.The supporting cast underwentnumerous changes over the years, with the exception of long-time pal Gale Gordon who provided Lucy with a stubborn, sturdy foil for most of the show's run.After Vivian Vance left the show as a regular in 1965, Lucille Ball determined to never again have a full-time featured female partner.The constant of this show was always Lucy herself, and her special brand of slapstick humor, which played off of all sorts of guests and regulars.
