    Synopsis


    As The Lucy Show entered its sixth season in the fall of 1967, star/producer Lucille Ball had already determined that the show had run its course and would not be returning the following fall. This, however, did not mean that Ball was bidding farewell to series television. Season six offers basically the same mixture as the previous two seasons: wacky redheaded widow Lucy Carmichael (Lucille Ball) inadvertently making life miserable for her boss, bank vice president Theodore J. Mooney (Gale Gordon), with periodic appearances by guest stars. This season's celebrity crop includes Milton Berle, Robert Goulet, Frankie Avalon, Carol Burnett, Sid Caesar, Edie Adams, Buddy Hackett, and Phil Harris -- not to mention Joan Crawford, who sings and dances with Lucy in a '20s-style vaudeville revue. Inarguably the best of the guest-star episode is the Emmy-nominated "Lucy Gets Jack Benny's Account," which is highlighted by a gadget-laden tour of Benny's infamous bank vault. Although The Lucy Show ranked as America's second most popular series at the end of its sixth season (it was beaten out only by The Andy Griffith Show), Lucille Ball was intractable: The series would not return for a seventh season -- at least, not in its familiar form. Come September of 1968, Lucille Ball and Gale Gordon were cast as "new" characters in the "new" series Here's Lucy, which also managed to find places in the cast for Ball's children Lucie Arnaz and Desi Arnaz Jr. -- to say nothing of the whole new battery of guest stars! ~ Hal Erickson

      Got this on a Black Friday deal for next to nothing. For a chance to watch some classic funny clean TV it's worth the price I paid.

      Everyone loved Lucy before everyone loved Raymond. Lucille Ball is a true comedic genius.
