I Lost Lucy is a TV sitcom that originally aired in the 1990s. Its reruns are shown on Tube Town.


Lucy's boss visits her grave.

The program's plotline centers around a deceased woman named Lucy Carbunkle, apparently following the story of how her passing has affected her family and friends.

During one episode, Lucy's former boss visited her grave and said he needed her at the bank because Robert Wagner was coming to open an account. At this, Lucy's skull rose out of the grave, frightening her boss. Immediately after that, however, the skull was snatched up by a crow and bawled as the crow carried it away.

Behind the Laughter[edit]

  • The show's title is an obvious wordplay on I Love Lucy.
  • The show's plot elements and characters, however, are references to The Lucy Show:
    • Lucy Carbunkle is a reference to Lucy Carmichael, the name of Lucille Ball's character on The Lucy Show.
    • The boss is a parody of bank president Mr. Mooney (played by Gale Gordon), who was Lucy's boss on The Lucy Show.
  • The dates on Lucy's gravestone (1911-1989) correspond to Lucille Ball's actual lifespan.
