When I Love Lucy first aired in 1951, the opening credits included rarely seen animated stick figures of Lucy and Desi Arnaz. The stick figures were later replaced by the
now-famous satin heart in syndicated episodes of the show.
The designs in the Vitameatavegamin Gift Collection celebrate one of the most famous episodes of the show, “Lucy Does a Commercial” combined with the updated
“Vitameatavegamin Girl” version of the rarely-seen stick figure art from CBS’s approved creative library.
Famous phrases from the episode are repeated around the stick figure in the art design reflecting Lucy Ricardo’s repeated attempts to film the Vitameatavegamin commercial
as she becomes more inebriated due to the health tonic’s 23% alcohol content.
