You’ve got some ‘splaining to do! It’s National I Love Lucy Day, commemorating the 66th anniversary (October 15, 1951) of the sitcom’s premiere date. Starring Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, Vivian Vance and William Frawley, the show (which remained the most watched show in the country for four of its six seasons) followed the antics of Lucy Ricardo, her best friend Ethel and their husbands Ricky and Fred. The show remains one of the most beloved of all time and spawned some memorable moments. Here are seven of our favorites.
1. The Candy Factory
Lucy and her best friend Ethel Mertz get a job wrapping candy on an assembly line—to disastrous and hilarious results. “I think we’re fighting a losing game!” Lucy cries, stuffing unwrapped chocolates in her mouth and hat to hide them from the boss.
2. The Vitamin Commercial
Lucy gets a job in a commercial for the drug Vitameatavegamin—but has a little trouble with the script. This scene has become a comedy classic and the episode, which aired in 1952, ranked at No. 2 on TV Guide‘s “Top 100 TV Episodes of All Time.”
3. Lucy Meets Harpo Marx
Lucy’s Harpo Marx impersonation is interrupted by the real pantomime walking through the door—and the two famously act out a hilarious mirror skit.
4. The Barbershop Quartet
Always seeking the spotlight, Lucy tries to sing along with a barbershop quartet. They try to silence her, but she gets the last word.
