Episode Recap

The Ricardos and Mertzes are volunteered to participate in Little Ricky's class play.

None of them are happy with the jobs they've been assigned, Ricky will be a tree, Fred a frog and Lucy seeths when she finds she's to be the ugly old witch and Ethel the beautiful fairy. She's happier when she finds the reason for the decision was that Ethel would fit into the costume better. Even Little Ricky isn't happy because he only got a little part and he wanted to be a star, "Because I've Got Talent" he repeats Lucy's words.

Lucy gets a call from one of the teachers asking if Little Ricky could handle the lead part in the play to which Lucy gladly accepts.

The part proves to be a bit too large for such a small boy but luckily he'll have all his family around him on stage to help him get through the play.

The musical play is titled "The Enchanted Forest" and opens with kids prancing around, singing, dancing, and Little Ricky and another little girl talking about the magical place.

Fred enters as a frog, while Ricky, dressed as a tree, helps little Ricky with his lines when he forgets.

Lucy then comes flying in suspended from ropes and scares the children.

Fairy godmother, Ethel, arrives onstage and gets rid of the evil witch. Lucy, the witch, then returns and the kids beg the fairy godmother to give her another chance.
