    This review is from: I Love Lucy, Vol. 4 – Lucy is Enceinte/Lucy Goes to the Hospital [VHS] (VHS Tape)

    Two of the happiest episodes from the second season of “I Love Lucy,” as the real life pregnancy of Lucille Ball is preserved for all-time. “Lucy is Enciente” (Episode #45, December 8, 1952) finds Lucy feeling run down and visiting the doctor, who tells her that she is going to have a baby. Having dreamed of this moment for over a decade of marriage, Lucy wants the moment to be absolutely perfect when she tells Ricky. It seems fate is conspiring against her until she comes up with the perfect solution: Ricky is passed a note that there is a woman in the audience who wants to tell her husband that they are expecting and wants Ricky to sing “Rock A Bye Baby.” Ironically, when Lucy and Desi were filming the climax, they got caught up in their own emotions when they learned they were gong to become parents, and both started crying. The scene was considered ruined until it was screened and they discovered it was impossible not to cry watching the happy couple. This final scene is one of the most beautiful moments in television history.

    The big payoff comes in “Lucy Goes to the Hospital” (#51, January 19, 1953), when 92 percent of the viewing episode tunes in for the birth of Little Ricky. Amazingly, Lucille Ball gives birth to Desi Arnaz, Jr. the morning this episode airs. This proves to be Desi’s favorite episode and who can forget Ricky showing up at the hospital dressed out in a voodoo costume. These two episodes make a perfectly matched set for Volume 4 of the “I Love Lucy” collection. Final note: Much has been made from the fact you could not say “pregnant” on television in 1952, and while the Spanish word “Enciente” was used is the episode title, the very next show was entitled “Pregnant Women are Unpredictable.”

    Both of these episodes are so funny. I love it when Lucy tries several times to tell Ricky she is pregnant. She wants so much to tell Ricky at home but keeps getting interrupted by “certain busy bodies;” and ends up telling him at his show in front of the whole audience. Then in the second episode it is so funny watching Ricky, Ethel and Fred trying to get Lucy to the hospital; and then seeing Ricky scare everybody in that voodoo costume. That was hilarious, especially when he scared Fred.
