These hilarious specials debuted with the 75-minute-long "Lucy takes a cruise to Havana" in which Lucy McGillicuddy--vacationing with her best friend Susie MacNamara--meets Ricky Ricardo for the first time. In a subsequent show, Lucy attempts to get chummy with new neighbor Tallulah Bankhead, with predictably wacky results.

From shenanigans in a men-only Geisha house in Tokyo to clowning with famed performer Red Skelton in Alaska and bullfighting in Mexico, Lucy and Desi's star-studded TV episodes continue the love, laughs and classically funny situations that make "I love Lucy" one of television's greatest comedy series.
