‘I Love Lucy’ Christmas Special Coming to TV in Color
More than 62 years ago one of the most beloved shows debuted on television — “I Love Lucy.” To this day, Lucille Ball is one of my heroes! Get ready Lucy fans, because the fun and wacky Ricardos and the whole Lucy gang are getting a fresh look in time for the holidays. The “I Love Lucy” Christmas Special, will air Dec. 20 on CBS, and will feature two newly colorized episodes—the long-lost “Christmas Episode” and “Lucy’s Italian Movie.”
According to CBS, “The Christmas Episode” was thought to be lost and wasn’t aired as a rerun until it was found again in 1989. In the episode, Lucy and Ricky, along with their neighbors, the Mertzes, decorate the Ricardos’ Christmas tree and reminisce about the arrival of Little Ricky. The other episode included is the “grape-stomping” episode. One of the most memorable and funniest of the “I Love Lucy” episodes.
