This classic scene from “Job Switching,” the first episode in season two of I Love Lucy, originally aired on September 15, 1952.

This part of the fantastically funny episode features Lucy (Lucille Ball) and Ethel (Vivian Vance) biting off a little more than they can chew when they get a job at a candy factory, and end up fighting a losing battle against a conveyor belt of chocolates. Actress Elvia Allman stars as the angry boss lady who has already had quite enough of the girls’ antics.
