Trivia

As the a vaudeville act, Lucy and Carol sing "Happiness Cocktail" while strumming ukuleles. Lucy then breaks out a saxophone, and Carol a coronet. Although Lucille Ball had a basic knowledge of both saxophone and ukulele (and demonstrated it on her sitcoms), she is pantomiming to the offstage orchestra, as is Carol. See more »

Goofs
