“Lucy has been part of all our lives,” Watson writes in the introduction to this snapshot of the good ol’ days when baby boomers were young and so was television. Now readers can experience it all over again.

“The Classic Moments” captures the best of the humor, surprise, pranks and guffaws of Lucy and Ricky and their neighbors Ethel and Fred Mertz during the television show that aired from 1951 to 1957 and set the stage for the modern American sitcom.

The book is filled with photographs from familiar scenes such as a frosty Lucy in the meat freezer, the scowling Lucy and Ethel that are wearing the same dress, the chocolate factory fiasco as well as the foot stomping wine-makers. Captions complement the photographs to describe the action in the photos and the plot behind the scenes.
