This may be the best written episode of the whole series. The Lucy writers were no slouches, but they really outdid themselves with this musical. Unlike a few episodes, nothing seems contrived here. This is exactly the kind of opera that Lucy would write and the climax is a scream with just a minimal of set up needed. The songs are so outrageous and cleaverly written that they're funny all by themselves. Then, add the fact that the show is tailored to the talents of each of the cast members, and it's a classic. Fred gets to croak out a tune about the "Inn on the River Out", Ricky is suave, Lucy gives one of her funniest performances (a lisping, toothless witch is money in the bank)--and Ethel really shines. Who knew she could hit those notes?
