Trivia

"California, Here We Come" marked Kathryn Card's first of several appearances as Lucy's mother, Mrs. McGillicuddy. The actress had initially debuted on the series the previous season, in a different role as Minnie Finch, in which she responded to Lucy and Ethel, who were pretending to be door-to-door survey takers, a risky-for-the-time line referring to the Alfred Kinsey scientific studies of Americans' sexual behavior.
