Trivia

- This program was also referred to as "The Lucille Ball-Desi Arnaz Show" and in syndication as "We Love Lucy". Actually, the Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour was just a name that CBS picked when they "reran" the episodes over 5 future summer seasons. Originally, these episodes were 1 hour long specials. That's why the original airdates are so far apart rather than one per week.
- The day of filming the final episode of this series, Lucille & Desi were hardly speaking to each other. The production crew and other cast members were doubtful that they would be able to get the series finale finished! None of them were aware that Lucy & Desi would be filing for divorce the very next day! Yes, they ended their working lives together one day and ended their marriage the following day!
- Vivian Vance absolutely hated the idea of playing the wife of William Frawley. When they first appeared together on the original series, Frawley was 64 years old and she was only 39! They didn't get along very well either.
