I Love Lucy

Lucy Raises Chickens - S6-E18

New this month Visible crew/equipment: When the chicks are running loose in the living room, and Lucy, Little Ricky, Fred and Ethel are trying to corral them, you can see the chicken wire and braces set up to keep the chickens on the set.

Country Club Dance - S6-E24

New this month Continuity mistake: When Lucy and Ricky are discussing the dance at the beginning of the episode and she turns away from him after she tells him "that's all there is to it," in the next shot right after she is still facing towards him.

Ricky and Fred Are TV Fans - S2-E31

New this month Visible crew/equipment: When Lucy decides to use the scissors to cut the TV wire on the roof, she and Ethel walk out of the kitchen, and at the start of the next shot we can see the end of the set wall and black cables on the floor, at the right side of the screen.

Ethel's Home Town - S4-E16

Continuity mistake: Ethel's full name in this episode is Ethel Mae Potter; however in a earlier episode, Fred calls her Ethel Louise, and in another episode she is called Ethel Roberta.


Lucy Thinks Ricky is Trying to Murder Her - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: When Ricky and Lucy are dancing in the living room, the camera swings too far to the left, and the edge of the set wall and the adjoining bedroom set can be seen briefly.


The Anniversary Present - S2-E1

Deliberate mistake: In this episode Lucy is trying to get Ricky to notice that their anniversary is on Monday the 19th by showing him a large calendar with the 19th circled. However, when they are in California and they celebrate their anniversary and Ricky asks for information to be wired to him, the telegram tells him that their anniversary is on the seventh.

Lucy and Superman - S6-E13

Continuity mistake: In this episode, Lucy goes out on the window ledge. In "Lucy Cries Wolf", the window ledge was very different: the walls were made of dark brick instead of concrete blocks, there was no downspout, and the ledge went into the corner and stopped, no continuation on the other wall.

First Stop - S4-E14

Visible crew/equipment: After driving all day, the Ricardos and Mertzes stop by a run-down diner that serves only stale cheese sandwiches, then end up there again only to spend the night in their one motel room. While they're all in their beds, the vibration of the nearby train causes the Ricardo's bed to shakily slide towards the Mertzes and then back again. The wire attached to the Ricardo's bed is visible.

Ricky's Screen Test - S4-E7

Visible crew/equipment: After take one of Ricky's screen test, when the director says to Lucy, "I thought it might add interest to the scene if you could make it go around and around like a lighthouse!", the Ricardo's kitchen cupboards and fridge are visible off stage to the left of the director's head.

Ricky's Old Girlfriend - S3-E11

Continuity mistake: In Lucy's dream, when Carlota Romero comes to their apartment, Little Ricky is sitting in a highchair with a hat on his head. Although later in the scene, you see his hat fall off, the first close-up shot of Little Ricky shows him without the hat. Then immediately, when you see a wide-shot of the scene, his hat is back on his head again.

Home Movies - S3-E19

Factual error: In the film Lucy and the others make, there is a long sequence of footage played forwards, then "mistakenly" repeated backwards. With the equipment and techniques they were using, this would have required not only making a complete copy of the segment, but also reversing the order of individual frames. Just feeding the film in backwards would have also flipped the image vertically. The result seen would be nearly impossible to produce accidentally.

The Fur Coat - S1-E10

Revealing mistake: When Lucy is cutting up the fake fur coat to scare Ricky, it is clear that the parts that she has to remove are already cut and just loosely sown in place.

Lucy Wants New Furniture - S2-E28

Continuity mistake: Lucy runs back and forth from Ricardo's and Mertz's apartment through a door in Mertz's living room that is not there in other episodes before or since.


Lucy and Superman - S6-E13

Revealing mistake: While Lucy is out on the ledge, if you look at the pipe as it runs from above the ledge to below it, the two pieces of pipe don't line up. They are off about the full diameter of the pipe. Also when the pipe pulls out, it's obvious the pipe is on a hinge at the bottom and not really attached to the lower pipe. Later, there is also no stream of water falling from above where the pipe was supposed to be connected as a drain even though it is pouring out.

The Ballet - S1-E19

Visible crew/equipment: Just after Lucy does her ballet "audition" for Ricky, the microphone dips into the shot above their heads.

Jean G

Never Do Business With Friends - S2-E32

Continuity mistake: In this episode, the Mertzes buy the Ricardo's old washing machine and say that theirs is old enough to be in the Smithsonian, yet just a few episodes earlier ("Sales Resistance") Fred tells Ethel to come and see her new Handy Dandy washing machine.


The Quiz Show - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: The step up into the kitchen is no longer there in later shows such as "The Fur Coat" and others.

Lucy Thinks Ricky is Trying to Murder Her - S1-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Ricky walks over to the table while he is on the phone with Jerry, a camera is briefly visible on the right hand side of the screen.

Lucy and Superman - S6-E13

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Superman comes to Little Ricky's party Little Ricky has on a birthday hat. When Superman picks him up the hat is gone; it reappears when Superman gets ready to leave.

Ricky Asks For a Raise - S1-E35

Character mistake: After Tropicana nightclub owner Mr. Littlefield replaces Ricky Ricardo with Xavier Valdez, "the Konga King," Lucy, Fred and Ethel try to get Ricky's job back by going to the nightclub in a succession of different wigs and costumes, then leaving when they learn that Ricky is no longer performing there. At one point, Fred and Ethel enter the nightclub, posing as "Mr. And Mrs. Crumley." A disguised Lucy enters one minute later and is outraged to hear that Ricky is no longer there. Ethel then pretends to phone a friend to tell her to not come to the nightclub. Lucy says, "Attagirl, Mrs. Crumley." However, when Ethel had told the maitre d' she had a reservation for "Crumley," Lucy had not yet entered and therefore should not have known that name.

Fred and Ethel's bickering relationship didn't require much acting; in real life Vivian Vance and William Frawley didn't care for each other at all.
