Trivia

Lucy says the new bicycle will cost $75.00. This was unusually high for a child's bicycle in 1962, especially since it would be equivalent to $588 in 2015 after adjusting for inflation. See more »

Lucy fixes a wardrobe malfunction in time to save a business meeting.

This is one of the few episodes I remember, having been under age 10 at the time it was in syndication. So bear this in mind when you read what follows.

Lucy is wearing a knit dress that she may have made herself and it has a seemingly minor flaw. She gets off an elevator in and a thread from her dress catches on the door as she steps into the lobby. The elevator goes up and Lucy's dress unravels. She spins like a top. A dizzy Lucy, now clad in a slip, eyes a mannequin clad in a big fuzzy kangaroo suit and holding a sign in the lobby. She dons the suit to preserve her modesty and hops off to the restaurant to meet a client or prospective employer.

While the kangaroo suit has a convenient pouch for carrying her purse, the attached mitten hands prove to be quite a challenge. An attempt is made to pick up a spoon and partake of a bowl of soup. She has to pick up the soup bowl with the cumbersome paws to drink it. We can be thankful that the attached headpiece lacked a long muzzle, which would've rendered poor Mrs. Carmichael with more difficulty and embarrassment.
