Favorite Lucy comic scene of all time . . .

Recommended Posts

I remember her making a great scene out of going up on a wall, that was from the show you're talking about, right?

 

Yep! That's how she get's on his shoulders when Mr. Mooney shows up!

 

My favorites:

The dilated eyes jitterbug from "Lucy Has Her Eyes Examined"

 

This is another one of my favorite scenes! That dance was incredible!

Ok, now check her out with that robotic dummy in the Ceramic Cat episode and tell me that's not one of her funniest scenes ever. :lucythrill:

My favorite part is when she taps the robotic dummy repeatedly on the shoulder to get yet another kiss, just so different and a laugh riot. HIS expression never changes but HERS sure does.

I love all your choices. My favorites are:

Lucy is a Kangeroo (dress and elevator put also the office scene.)

Lucy and Van Johnson (the dance is superub)

Lucy and REd Skelton's pantomame and song

Lucy and bob Cummings bathtub scene.

Lucy and Carol Burnett - Roommate. (It's great how Lucy interacts with Carol.)

Lucy and the chase scene in Fuller Brush

LOng, Long Trailer "Breezing Along with the Breeze"

Lucy in the Big Street

Lucy had a comic scene in The Big Street? Please elaborate. Unless you mean when Gloria fell or was pushed down the stairs and lost the use of her legs, yeah, that was a riot, LOL! :lucyhorror::lucydisgust::lucythrill:

Thank you for reminding me of the hammock scene! I need to watch that one in the next coming days! Plus the Lucy and Red scene!

Indeed! I think another one of Lucy's best comedy moments from season 1 is in "Fred and Ethel Fight" when she thinks the apartment is on fire and is trying to navigate her way out all done up in bandages. :marionstrong:

LOL< yes, true, and saving those two containers of henna rinse before anything else. I have to say, there are lots more laughs in the first two seasons than i remembered. Some classic stuff too.

I preferred when the car they were in suddenly crashed in the living room, which Everybody Loves Raymond later copied. :lucythrill:

As i've said a hundred times, this BALLET show was considered one of her all time best by critics decades ago, it was taught in acting schools.

 

And look at ALL she has to do in that one episode: the ballet sequence, Slowly I turn, the big finale and everything in between.

Well, that's why i never understood the constant griping about her reading cue cards on her later shows, look at the dialogue she always had to do, on top of all the comedy routines, dance and singing ones, physical humor, she always had most of it. And she was running a studio, appearing on many other shows, doing publicity, not to mention playing with her children, LOL! :lucythrill::desijr::lucy2::lucie:

Honestly, I love this episode... but does anyone else think the ending fell flat? Once Lucy saw what the bit was, wouldn't she have gone along with it? Wouldn't a funnier ending have been her trying to do the ballet dressed as the tramp? Everything until that last scene is A++++.

There's not much LOGIC in a series aiming for major laughs.

Today, i saw The Freezer, one of the all time best shows ever written and the comedy was sublime from start to finish. What with that difficult to open ILL box, i haven't seen these shows in a while so i have forgotten how great some of these were. Of course it helps that i'm getting old and am going senile. Like Hank Fonda said in On Golden Pond, it's all NEW to ME!

Logic aside, this is one instance where, comedically, what should have been a build-up, in my opinion, fell flat. But to each his own. It still is a phenomenal episode and a classic! :)
