Episode Summary

EDIT
The Indian Show
AIRED:
Even the arrival of the baby hasn't dampened Lucy's showbiz aspirations. Wanting to get into the new Indian act at the Tropicana, Lucy pays off one of the performers and appears herself, carrying Little Ricky papoose-style on her back.

  • Lucy gets into the act with Little Ricky as a papoose on her back.

    8.6
    The most hilarious thing about this episode had to be the "come here" Ricky sings to Lucy during the performance at the Tropicana, and her response of "uh..unh uh". I remember laughing the first time I saw it, and do the same today.



    Fred and Ethel's performance in the Indian dance is also a side splitter-- especially Fred's hooping and hollering.



    I really can't imagine a latin nightclub putting on an American Indian review, but in ILL land, it makes all the sense in the world. I'd love to know what drove the writers to come up with that idea. It's a classic.moreless
