About this Episode

The hosts chat with child actor and ‘Little Ricky’ on I Love Lucy, Keith Thibodeaux.
Keith was beloved as the son of Lucy and Ricky Ricardo on the much loved program and later, went on to play Johnny Paul Jason on The Andy Griffith Show.
Keith started his career at a very young age playing drums professionally at only 3 years old traveling and eventually getting the role that changed his life.
He discusses his time on the show, his relationships with Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz and their children.
Most importantly, Keith discusses the huge role God plays in his life since becoming a born again Christian, meeting his wife, playing with his band (David and the Giants), forgiving his father and mending that relationship and opening up a ballet school dedicated to dancing for Christ. Truly an inspiring story from a man who went through a lost patch and came out the other side with grace.
