Because of the iconic status and ongoing popularity of I Love Lucy, it’s easy to forget just how long ago the show first went on the air. It premiered in 1951, years before cars had seatbelts or telephones had buttons.

But some common products we still know today were introduced before Lucille Ball created her groundbreaking sitcom. Can you guess which came first—  I Love Lucy or these household items?
