Hey Lucy! You’ve got some ‘splainin’ to do. Especially since the feisty redhead and her Cuban-bandleader husband thoroughly dominated this decade. The wacky hijinx of Lucy, Ricky, Fred and Ethel made I Love Lucy the number one show for 4 of its 6 seasons.

Even if you can’t use the word pregnant. She was “spectin’.”
