Newly Colorized Versions of "The Million-Dollar Idea" and "Bonus Bucks" to Be Seamlessly Combined

I LOVE LUCY FUNNY MONEY SPECIAL, a new one-hour special featuring two back-to-back colorized episodes of the classic series, will be broadcast Friday, April 19 (8:00-9:01 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

The two episodes, "The Million-Dollar Idea" and "Bonus Bucks," are newly colorized with a nod to the 1950s period in which they were filmed. As with previous "Lucy" specials, the main titles and end credits are seamlessly combined into one set at the beginning and end of the hour, with no interruption between the episodes.

"I Love Lucy" stars Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz as Lucy and Ricky Ricardo, and Vivian Vance and William Frawley as the Ricardos' best friends, Fred and Ethel Mertz.

In "The Million-Dollar Idea," Lucy and Ethel attempt to get rich quick by bottling Lucy's homemade salad dressing. A commercial pitch on a local TV program results in hundreds of orders, but Ricky soon determines that the girls are not charging enough to cover the cost of production and distribution. They decide to fill the initial orders and get out of the business fast, but a second TV appearance, designed to discourage additional sales, results in even more orders!

In "Bonus Bucks," it's the Ricardos vs. the Mertzes when both couples claim ownership of a dollar bill worth three hundred dollars in a newspaper's "Bonus Bucks" contest. To save their friendship, they decide to split the winnings, each couple keeping half the actual bill until it can be redeemed. Unfortunately, Ricky puts the Ricardos' half of the dollar in his pajama pocket - and Lucy sends those pajamas to the laundry!

"The Million-Dollar Idea" was originally broadcast Jan. 11, 1954, and "Bonus Bucks" on March 8, 1954. Both became immediate viewer favorites.

"I Love Lucy" was broadcast on the Network from Oct. 15, 1951, through June 24, 1957. It was voted "The Best TV Show of All Time" in a 2012 viewer poll conducted by People Magazine and ABC News.
