The sixth and final season of I Love Lucy finds new laughs in some old formulas while also expanding the hugely popular show’s horizons with a change of scene. Things get off to a familiar start when Lucy Ricardo (Lucille Ball) gets in the middle of husband Ricky’s business--in this case, disguising herself as a hot dog salesman at Yankee Stadium in order to get near Bob Hope. Hope, she believes, has ignored Ricky’s offer to be the first act at his new nightclub. But, in fact, Hope had already agreed; Ricky was just sitting on the information to keep Lucy from getting typically ditzy in front of one of his celebrity pals. Not surprisingly, mayhem follows when poor Hope finds his hand slathered with condiments and his noggin bonked by a foul ball. Other celebrity sightings include Orson Welles, who copes with Lucy’s aspirations as a Shakespearean actress, and George Reeves, television’s Superman, who shows up unexpectedly, in costume, at Little Ricky’s birthday party. Meanwhile, Lucy--who didn’t want to disappoint the tyke--stands in a makeshift Man of Steel outfit on a window ledge, in the rain.
A number of episodes concern Little Ricky (Keith Thibodeaux) now that he’s old enough to be a functioning character on the show. In "Little Ricky Learns to Play the Drums," the lad takes after his musician father and starts playing percussion, leading to some frayed nerves. A couple of episodes later, young Ricardo gets a bad case of stage fright at school, and Lucy suggests Ricky let him play the drums at the nightclub. (But then, of course, she has to figure out how to talk her son into performing.) A big change comes to I Love Lucy in the season’s second half, when the Ricardos decide it’s time to become homeowners and pull up stakes at their old Manhattan apartment. Moving to a nice, new house in Connecticut, they’re soon joined by Fred (William Frawley) and Ethel (Vivian Vance), and the season’s storylines take on a distinctly suburban flavor, with country clubs, barbecues, and gardens figuring into the comedy. With those developments, I Love Lucy came to a close after making television history as a much-beloved sitcom. Lots of special features, including multiple audio commentaries, flubs, lost scenes, and five episodes of My Favorite Husband, Ball’s radio show.
Season 6 is one of my favorites because I really think that it has a lot of comedy and is very enjoyable. The Superman episode is one of the first ones that I seen when I was a little girl and I have always loved it and can remember it ever since. I can remember waiting up until 2am just to watch the show and now I don't have to because of the boxed sets. I have bought some tapes before in the past but the clarity is not that good and I would have rather watched it on tv but with these dvds it has wondeful clarity and a lot of bonuses also. I decided to buy the whole collection because I like to watch the show and am a fan of Lucille Ball, but the bonuses that it comes with is almost worth it itself. You get the comedy radio show "My Favorite Husband" and also special deleted scenes as well, if you choose them from the main menu. The Loveing cup is another great show from "I Love Lucy," when lucy gets the loving cup stuck on her head and she has to go down town and everyone is stairing at her. She gets lost and the police has to come and help her out and the cup is suppose to be given to Ricky to be present to be given as an award ceremony down town and Lucy walks in wearing the cup on her head. All in all I rate this box set 5* because it has all that you can want in a boxed collection and plus it's "I Love Lucy" need I say more.
I have always loved I Love Lucy from what I can remember. I purchased the 6th season on DVD, because I already had the other five and wanted to complete the set. It is so nice to have all episodes right there in case you want to watch a certain episode. I would recommend buying the 6th season if you need to complete your set, or if you are just a huge Lucille Ball fan. Buy the others as well!

I am a Lucy fan and collect Lucy items. I had already collected "I Love Lucy"
DVDs, seasons 1-5, but I could not find season 6. I was thrilled when I found
"I Love Lucy" season 6 on ebay. I immediately bought it. The DVD set contains
all 27 season 6 episodes. They include episodes that feature wonderful guests like Bob Hope, Orson Welles, and Superman. It also includes one of my favorite
episodes "Lucy Raises Tulips" where she has a wild ride on a runaway lawn mower. This DVD collection is a must for true Lucy fans.
