For the first time ever, the episodes will be shown in all their colored glory, and will air back-to-back with no commercial interruption! The two episodes getting the color treatment will include "The Christmas Episode," obviously, and "Lucy Does a TV Commercial," which everyone remembers for her classic "Vitameatavegamin"​ bit.

Check out a glimpse of the full color episode below!



Both episodes will broadcast on CBS at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday, Dec. 23! It's safe to say, we are very, very excited!
