“I Love Lucy” Friday: Relive two of the show’s best musical numbers – ever – from “The Operetta” see the chocolate factory and grape stomping episodes often mentioned as classics but as far as my favorite I Love Lucy episodes go,. The Operetta is also right up there in the top 10.

Lucy’s women’s club wants to stage an operetta, but they’re completely broke. (Lucy, the treasurer, seems to have spent it all to pay her own bills.) Thus, Lucy and Ethel write and star in the musical, but when their postdated check bounces for the costumes and scenery, the rental company repossesses everything in mid-performance.

But before the rental company steps in, we get to enjoy the great Vivian Vance as Lilly of the Valley then Lucille Ball as Queen of the Gypsies. One can sing like a dream and, well, the other can’t.

Enjoy these two musical numbers from this wonderful episode.
