And now even young people are rediscovering the iconic scenes on YouTube and other video platforms.
The show which starred Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, Vivian Vance, and William Frawley was certainly one of the best sitcoms to ever appear on TV. Plus, Lucy and Ricky were an adorable couple that everyone fell in love with.
Below we are sharing seven beloved scenes from the iconic show that will make you smile and laugh!
The Candy Factory
Perhaps one of the most famous “I Love Lucy” scenes, we all remember Lucy’s shenanigans in the chocolate assembly line. When Lucy and her friend Ethel Mertz get jobs wrapping candy, they quickly botch everything.
“I think we’re fighting a losing game!” Lucy cries and then stuffs the chocolates in her mouth to hide her failure from her boss.
The Vitamin Commercial
While in Hollywood, Lucy lands a job in a commercial for the drug Vitameatavegamin. But Lucy can’t stick with the script.
The scene has become one of the most iconic comedy scenes ever to appear on television. And the classic episode which aired in 1952 was ranked No. 2 on TV Guide’s “Top 100 TV Episodes of All Time”.
Lucy Meets Harpo Marx
Everyone loves the episode where Harpo Marx makes a guest appearance on the “I Love Lucy” show. The old time comedian brought his usual antics and Lucy was able to mirror him the whole way.
Harpo, always the womanizer, starts chasing Ethel around until he sees Lucy. He freaks out and then has an epic pantomime battle with the TV star.
The Barbershop Quartet
Because Lucy loves the spotlight, she tries to sing along with a barbershop quarter. They try to stifle her but of course Lucy gets the last word…

Lucy and Superman
Because Lucy wants to throw an amazing birthday party for Little Ricky, she tries to hire Superman. When the hero can’t make the party, Lucy dresses up as Superman herself. Big mistake. She gets stuck on the window ledge trying to act heroic. Then the real Superman comes to the rescue…
