    Little Ricky finaly learned how to play the drums! but Lucy wants him to be a docter. and ricky wants him to be a drummer. So while Ricky's at his club, lucy takes Little Ricky to the store and forces him to buy a docter's play kit. Also ricky Secretly bought Little Ricky a drum. So when Little ricky plays the drum he repeats the same beat over and over again all day long. (Da, Da, Da Da Da) Lucy and Ricky start doing there every day chores in that beat! My favorite part was when Ricky said to Ethel and Fred, OUT!, OUT!, OUT! OUT! OUT! You have to see it!moreless
