It seems peculiar now, but television shows adapted for comics were quite prevalent for a time during the 1950s-1960s. Almost every comic publisher had one. It was mistakenly believed that television would cripple other forms of entertainment media by giving away free content. Rather than fight against the new medium like the motion picture industry, comics instead tried to ally themselves with any and all of the hit shows. And hit shows don't hit much bigger than I LOVE LUCY, which still has a large fanbase even now.
The series only ran from 1951 until 1957, but the comic outlived it by lasting until 1962. Published by Dell, this wacky interlude is from I LOVE LUCY COMICS #9, February 1956
