* TheDanza: Lucille Ball as Lucy Ricardo. She did the exact same thing in her two later shows, despite being different characters. Vivian Vance (who played Ethel) was so sick of being called "Ethel" on the street that when she appeared on either of the spin-offs her character was always named Viv, Vi, or Vivian.

* MissingEpisode: The Christmas Special was not included in syndication packages in order to prevent the episode from airing out of season, and also because of a supposed lack of interest in [[ClipShow Clip Shows]]. In 2013, CBS began a yearly tradition of airing the special in color (they previously attempted this in the early '90s, but the crudity of the technology prevented it from becoming a yearly tradition).

** Desi Arnaz demanded that the second act of the episode "Lucy Tells The Truth" be rewritten. The plot involves Ricky, Fred and Ethel betting Lucy that she could not tell the truth for 24 hours. The original second act involved an IRS agent coming to the apartment to audit Ricky, and Lucy being forced to tell him about Ricky cheating on his taxes. Desi balked at the idea of Ricky cheating on his taxes, and a new second act was written.
