Ricky and Lucy (Desi Arnaz and Lucille Ball), I Love Lucy
Arguably the first super-couple of TV, the kooky Ricky and Lucy were all the more irresistible thanks to Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz's real-life marriage. The two, who even incorporated Ball's pregnancy into the show (Ball and her TV alter ego gave birth on the same day), brought the wackiness week in and week out with Lucy's screw-ups and Ricky's bilingual outbursts of exasperation. You don't have to 'splain it to us why you watched.
