Lucy and Desi although this pic didn't come from the I LOVE LUCY show (it's obviously a publicity shot) i still like it a lot. And now, a little "I LOVE LUCY" TRIVIA: *It was the first to tape before a live audience. *Fred and Ethel's bickering relationship didn't require much acting; in real life Vivian Vance and William Frawley didn't care for each other at all. *Did you know that the original names for the Ricardos would have been Lucy and Larry Lopez? In the lost pilot episode, the voiceover says "You are about to see the pilot episode of the show that was almost I Love Lopez." *In the episode entitled "Lucy is Enceinte". .if you look carefully at the beginning, Lucy is reading McCall's Magazine, and "I LOVE LUCY" is on the cover.

My Three Sons - Original Cast My Three Sons premiered on ABC on September 29, 1960. Fred MacMurray (Steve Douglas) was with the series for the long haul as were second son Don Grady (Robbie)and third son Chip (Barry Livingtone). The episodes were black and white until 1965 when the show changed networks and aired on CBS. The original cast from the back-and-white years (shows that are generally not available in reruns) included Tim Considine as eldest son Mike and William Frawley as Bub O'Casey (the boys' maternal gradfather). The color era brought two cast changes: Mike was written out of the show (he had married and moved away) and replaced by a new, adopted son Ernie (Stanley Livingstone). By 1965 Frawley was in declining health, so Bub was also written out of the cast partway through the 1964-65 season (supposedly he was visiting Ireland) and replaced by his seafaring brother Uncle Charley (William Demarest).

Vanishing TV Character - Bub OCasey My Three Sons was one of televisions's longest-running sitcoms, airing 380 episodes over 12 seasons. It first aired on ABC from 1960 through 1965 and then on CBS from 1965 through 1972. The premise of the show was that Stephen Douglas (played by Fred MacMurray) was a widowed aeronautical engineer with three sons whose ages spanned about 12 years. We never learn much about his deceased wife--not even her first name. With Stephen Douglas often busy, his father-in-law, crusty but good-natured Bub O'Casey, was brought into the family fold to be the equivalent of the 'mother': the person who would cook, clean, shop, do laundry, mend clothes, and so forth. Bub was played by William Frawley who had earlier gained TV fame as Fred Mertz on I Love Lucy in the 1950s. The show was immediately popular but never quite managed to crack the Nielsen top 10 in ratings. Fred MacMurray, who was once the highest paid actor in Hollywood, only agreed to be in the show if he could shoot all his scenes in three months. ABC agreed to this unusual demand. This meant the scripts for an entire season had to be prepared so MacMurray's scenes could all be shot over the space of three months and then pieced together with scenes involving only the other cast members who had a standard shooting schedule. Four seasons into the show, a problem arose: Frawley's health was declining to the point where ABC could not get him insured in case it had to pay for an entire season of episodes to be re-shot with a replacement if Frawley died or was incapacitated by illness. Thus ABC felt it was financially prudent to unceremoniously drop Frawley from the cast midway through the 1964-65 season. (It was explained that Bub had gone to Ireland to look after his 104-year-old Aunt Katie.) Enter William Demarest, who took on the role of Charley O'Casey--Bub's seafaring brother. He was persuaded to become the new Mr. Mom at the Douglas home and proved to be even more grumpy than Bub, but just as lovable deep down. Bub was seldom mentioned again once Uncle Charley entered the scene. Apparently Frawley resented Demarest for replacing him in the cast. Because only the 1965 to 1970 episodes are widely syndicated, many newer fans of My Three Sons are utterly unaware of Bub O'Casey. The insurance concerns were very valid: Frawley died suddenly in March 1966 at age 79.

William Frawley-Vivian Vance Feud As any good sitcom fan knows, from 1951 to 1960 William Frawley and Vivian Vance played Fred and Ethel and Mertz--Lucy and Ricky Ricardo's landlords and best friends on I Love Lucy and the Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour. Frawley and Vance performed comedy magic on the set, but they truly detested each other. Problems began on the first day of shooting when Vance commented that no one would believe her character would be married to 'that old coot.' (Vance, who was 42 in 1951, was 22 years younger than Frawley.) Frawley overheard the remark and never forgave Vance for that barb. Often when Vance suggested even the smallest change in dialogue in the script, Frawley would storm off the set--solely because it was Vance who made the suggestion. Long before I Love Lucy began, Frawley had a reputation for being a difficult actor to work with due to his mercurial temperament and love of the bottle. Perhaps his hatred of Vance gave the exchanges between the two co-stars some extra zing. When The Lucy Desi-Comedy Hour ended, CBS proffered the idea of Vance and Frawley co-starring in a spinoff titled Fred and Ethel. Apparently Frawley liked the idea because of the potential money in it, but Vance swiftly quashed the idea, saying she wanted nothing to do with Frawley ever again. Frawley's next TV role was Bub O'Casey on My Three Sons. Tim Considine, who played eldest son Mike Douglas, recalled Frawley exploding into profanity-laced rages whenever someone innocently asked him about Vance. Considine further recalled that Frawley would occasionally disrupt the shooting of The Lucy Show by tossing noisy objects near the sound stage if Vance was trying to do a scene. Frawley suddenly died of a heart attack in 1966. Upon hearing the news, Vance reputedly shouted, 'Champagne for everyone!'
