: : also, for your information, the Colemans were not our neighbors in real life... that was just made up for the show. i don't even know where they lived.
: In fact, the neighbors (on the north side, I assume, not Lucy's side) eventually hung a sign on their door saying, "Ronald Coleman doesn't live here."
WRONG! the sign you're referring to was not about the Colemans and was not on the door of the neighbors to the north...
the real story: before Lucy bought the house, some people named "Burr" lived there. because the house was a similar style to ours they had fans knocking on their door and asking for my dad. so they put a sign in their driveway saying "Jack Benny does not live here. he lives there" with an arrow pointing to our house. there was never any sign about the Colemans.
