“I Love Lucy” Friday: Little Ricky Ricardo learns to play the drums … and can’t stop!!!
This scene from the episode of I Love Lucy where little Ricky was given a new drum set is an example of Lucille Ball’s sheer genius and comedy timing.
I’ve seen this breakfast scene countless times and still marvel at how she consistently cracks the eggs, throws the shells into the trash can, and slams the lid to the drum beat.
This is why, 60 years and one week after I Love Lucy first premiered, we are still watching with wonder and with laughter.
