Trivia

According to Desi Arnaz, in both his autobiography and interviews, this was one of William Frawley's favorite episodes. Desi said, "It reminded Bill a lot of his childhood. Bill also helped, not only with the writing, but the crew, telling them what a Middle Class family would have had, and not have, in 1900." See more »

What year is this again?

Funny episode, but the writers seem to think that everyone in 1900 lived in a log cabin somewhere in the Appalachian backwoods. I'm pretty sure most people back then bought bread and butter from the grocery store just like we do today. (And of course, electricity and hot running water weren't exactly unknown at the time) I personally thought the highpoint was the surprise visit by the reps from the Women's Society League (always a treat to see Florence Bates) I know most people would probably say the bread coming out of the oven scene, but even as a kid I was saying "How did all that bread fit in the oven? Did it bust out the back and through the wall?"
