I Love Lucy DVD question

Recommended Posts

Is the color opening from the Columbia House I Love Lucy VHS tapes on any of the I Love Lucy DVDS?  The one that has Lucy, Desi, William and Vivian in color with the background in black and white and has Desi singing the I Love Lucy Show theme. I remember this topic being covered at one time here on the lounge. It was a special feature or was somehow a hidden feature on one of the discs that required some type of special code to be entered in the dvd player in order for the feature to play. Anyone remember anything about this? I know it has been a long time since this topic has been covered.

Yes that is it. I have all the I Love Lucy dvds. I can't find the introduction on any of the discs. On the old Lucy Lounge I remermber someone said that it was on one of the discs but it was hidden. You had to input a code in the dvd player for it to play. It was what was called easter eggs on the dvds. Easter eggs where hidden special features on dvds that required a code in order to play them. They where like hidden features that the viewer had to find on the disc. I have all the Columbia House I  Love Lucy VHS tapes with the introduction on them. I was just trying to find it on the dvds.

That introduction is on the I Love Lucy complete series set. It's included on all the first season discs if you pick the "Play All" option.

Yes, it's definitely a buried featured on many of the discs, definitely the 6-disc version of season 1. I didn't know the play all option accessed it, but it was visible when I viewed the disc contents individually on my computer.

It cracks me up a bit that people are getting excited over an Easter Egg that's been available on disc for over 5 years, and yet we have all these new Blu Ray goodies just made available to us.

 

I know which one I'm more excited about, LOL! :D

Not yet. Need to pay off last month's credit card statement before I go putting any more on there. That German import of Cybill racked it up a bit :)

Well, it's never been officially released in the states, but England and Germany have gotten complete box sets. The German one was cheaper so I imported it. I'd never seen it and needed a new sitcom marathon.

I have a universal DVD player. Creates a bit of a flicker with the PAL conversion but it works okay. Plus I can view them on my laptop as well.

 

As for finding them, I frequently browse the international Amazons to see if any gems pop up. This one has all the menus in German, but I know enough to get around. Plus it has the English audio as an alternate track so it's all good.
